Already June is nearly over so it’s time for the 6 month leaders in the “of the year”. A lot of Glen of Imaal Terriers have won CCs this year but at the moment Int Ch Brockland Brayhead Lad has won most in 2012. Top Puppy is Romainville Billy Wizz. In America GCh Finnabair Song O’ My Heart leds at halfway so who are the other international “half-wayers?”
Laura Trainor and her Glen of Imaal Terrier Ch. Niamh of Cnoc BN, RN running (and qualifying with a first place) in agility. Congratulations!
There will blood samples taken at the EFG Companion Show on July 14th for sending to Bochum. Any Glen of Imaal Terrier owner wishing to have their animal’s DNA tested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Blackpool Championship Show was cancelled after the first day due to the horrendous conditions but with Terriers being day one Glen of Imaals got judged! Best of Breed was Romainville Uptown Girl with Best Dog awarded to Grizzlemarsh Digby. Best Puppy went to Lilliburlero March
Leeds Championship Show entries close today. Terrier Day is Sunday July 29th and Glen of Imaal Terriers are to be judged by Margaret McDonald Cross.
Whatever anybody thinks about the Kennel Club they do (sometimes) have very good ideas. The Bark & Read Foundation could do a lot to improve the profile of the dog both with the general public at large and particularly with children. It’s also the sort of thing the “couch” Glen of Imaal Terrier would excel in. Have a read about it.
Rupert gave his holiday thoughts on Northern France so how about the Isle of Wight? A new dog friendly tourism guide has been launched to get the most out of a journey to the Isle of Wight. It’s a 24 page illustrated booklet called Pawprints can be downloaded or a printed copy can be obtained by calling 0871 376 1000. Anybody got any more dog friendly holiday venues?
