As we were asked (what a surprise)….

Yesterday saw quite a few requests come in & obviously we always try to oblige. Basically, condensed & re-written, they all said the same thing “where on earth did the fad (a ruder word was used) for ears stuck on top of the head come from?” It’s a good question and the photographs below make it even more pertinent. Two of these were taken in the first two years of the recognition of the Glen of Imaal Terrier by the Irish Kennel Club (34 & 35), so these are dogs that performed for a living, not show bred specimens and the higher ear is definately in the minority. Whilst looking at the photos you might notice the length of leg these dogs have but shall we do that next week?
