And to sum it all up….

31 Dec

It has to be applause to the EFG as the highlight of 2013. After 16 years the Enthusiasts, Fanciers, Owners, Admirers, Followers, Supporters etc. etc. of the EFG said they thought it was time the Glen of Imaal Terrier world in the UK had another KC registered club (we’d been recognised for years) and the Kennel Club agreed with them. Probably the ultimate accolade of all this was the way the KC allowed “our name” to continue on “due to it being held in such high esteem”.

The Glen of Imaal Terrier Enthusiasts & Fanciers Club thanks everybody for their enthusiasm and support over the past years and hopes you’ll all be with us in 2014 so HAPPY NEW YEAR

    I must be honest i think 1 club is more than enough their are not enough breeders and or stud dog owners to fill a large family saloon in the UK, I have no viewpoint either way on which club is the better they like ourselves we have good points and bad points i leave the show politics to the 2 clubs i still think that “tickets” have been the biggest negative for the breed along side the idiotic and uncalled for and un-needed breed standard changes by the english kc. Which were opposed by many yet decided by an unnamed committee which would not give its reasons, Thats why here you see some very straight fronted Glens” wheatens” that are also blue or brindle.
    My wish that the show world would start thinking beyond ticktets and rosettes and start being far more freindly and welcome newcomersinto the breed!!!

    Im looking forward to the amalgamation with the Cesky’s. We really can start to water down working dogs then.

      Glen, I frequently scratch my head over some of your comments but that is a lulu!

    Why would CTs want to amalgamate with Glens?

    Since the CT is still very much a hunting breed in the Czech Republic and Slovakia I suspect that world-wide there are far more REAL working CTs than Glens. And at least they are small enough to go to ground!

    Try reading up a bit on the breed before making stupid comments!
    This is a quick introduction:

    Mrs A glens can get to ground as Ceskys work in Slovakia lets keep this to a club basis i think we should stick to Glen club/s im surprised at the Glen/Cesky thought! i just think were to small and its purely a personal opinion favouring neither club.
