A lot of Glen of Imaal Terrier showing over the past few days. Starting in the UK Leeds Championship Show had Bregorrey Wannabe Victory By Jeonty taking Best Dog and Best of Breed with his kennel mate Jeonty MeMe Fern being awarded Best Bitch. Leeds only has one Challenge Certificate on offer and that went to Victor with the Reserve CC going to the Reserve Dog Kirikee Ronan O’Gara.
In Finland the HKI/Eukanuba Show saw Abberann Fagan being awarded BOB with Gleann Rabarber Drom Best Opposite and Best Veteran. America had a cluster of shows in Ohio and Best of Breed on all 3 days was GCH Liberty’s Darren of Daulton (taking Group 3 one of the days). Best Opposite to him was Ch Tipperary American Girl, Ch Daultons Rosalee and GCH Daultons Emerald Green respectively. Due to the high number of professional handlers and multi-owners in the States they run a competition not known in Europe, “Owner Handler”. Tipperary American Girl was Group 3 and Group 1 in the Terrier Owner Handler Group. Also in America Henderson KC had GlenTyrs Lady Isabella at Castlerock as BOB.
Before doing the well-earned congratulations all round there has to be another mention. Wendy Tobijanski has been associated with Glens for a long, long time but over the weekend took the 50th BOB, and Group 4, with her Cesky. What a record!!
Lots of congratulations to everybody and it’s difficult, in such an illustrious list, to pick what pictures to use but in recognition of such an event it’ll have to be Wendy-shown below carrying her mother’s American Cocker Spaniel whilst a younger Brenda and Liz walk the Glens in.
