The Helsinki Winners weekend saw a good couple of days for the Gleann Kennel. Best of Breed on the Saturday (17 Glens) was Gleann Ode with BOS Irish Rover’s Sir Brendan Behan. Best of Breed on the Sunday was Ode’s brother, Organ, and BOS Gleann Queen Size Girl.
The Glen of Imaal Association Show (40 Glens), as it’s the local event, is a great place to catch up with the gossip and create some new. Judge Ro Whinn-Sladden (over from France) introduced Hugh, her new husband, put says she will still be W-S rather than Perry. At the behest of the Secretary the cake gets a mention-yes, the carrot cake was excellent. Ro judged a family event with BIS going to Ch/Ir Ch Abberann Ennya, BOS to half brother Ch Beatrix’s Boy With Windarra From Donvaleset. Reserve Bitch to, Beatrix’s Boy grandaughter, Ch Donvaleset Brier and Reserve Dog to (another half brother) Multi Ch Abberann Conan. Best Puppy went to 6 month old Amhard Ginger Snap.
