As the show bag is packed…

It won’t only be Glen of Imaal Terrier people who are packing showbags today. All the hound and terrier folk will certainly be ticking off lists and there will be many journeying to Birmingham to stay over for a few days. We all remember leads and passes and such but make sure the cage cardsĀ  (for your bench number) aren’t forgotten.
