It’s that time of year again.

Late January is dullish, greyish and just a bit boring. Crufts has closed and National Terrier closes late February so the Glen of Imaal Terrier world, except for Westminster on the 10th and 11th February with seven Glens entered, goes a bit into abeyance this time of the year so it’s a good time for the Winter Break. Let’s make it a date for February 17th to hit the EFG blog icon on your favourites list once again.

Before we all airkiss goodbye for a few weeks there are just a few reminders. The EFG AGM is on March 23rd, schedules for the Open Show can be downloaded from here and (hint, hint) have you remembered your EFG 2014 Subs?

Discover Dogs Crufts 2014

Anne Hardy ( sends:-

Discover Dogs is organised as a breed booth, every one is welcome.

All I need to know from volunteers-is what day/days they are available.

What colour and sex and how many dogs are being brought.

We try to organise a morning and an afternoon shift for the dogs sake and work around what all the volunteers are able to do.

Even if you don’t/can’t bring a Glen of Imaal Terrier you help may still be appreciated!
