Westminster Day 2

Today is the second day of the American Kennel Club “biggie” Westminster and day 2 is Terrier Day so the Glen of Imaal Terriers are there. The Westminster system is very different from the Crufts one insofar as numbers are very, very limited but the top five Glens in the country will be on show plus one from the lottery entry giving judge Mrs. Virginia Latham Smith 6 Glens to assess. The show is always of interest to Glen exhibitors worldwide but this year UK enthusiasts have a really vested one as four of the six have UK bred sires!

Glens are scheduled for 10.30am and Westminster always has live videos of each breed so keep an eye on the website anytime after 4.00pm UK time.

Have we been missed?

TThings are beginning to happen again (besides the ice and snow) so let’s begin blogging again for a new season. It’s great that an average of 40 people a day have still checked in on here whilst we were “closed” for the winter so we seem to have been thought about! The news of wins, new titles (show and working) indicates how dedicated some of our Glen of Imaal Terrier people are as they keep travelling out and about through the dark days of January and February. Well done to all of you. A couple of Glens left their people for the longest walk of their lives in the previous few months. Our sympathies to them but they can be assured that they aren’t alone; the eternal Glen family were waiting.

Your news, views, gossip and anything you feel may be of interest are, as usual, always welcome and very appreciated. YOU make this blog what it is. Open Shows don’t usually get much of a mention but West Midlands Terrier deserve to. Often you wait weeks for any news but West Mids manage to put many to shame; their show was last Saturday and their website already has the pictures up!
