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 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!
Crufts online entries close today. If memory serves right this is the latest that Crufts entries have ever closed so the decision has to be made now! Glen of Imaal Terriers are on the Friday and first in the ring.
Glen of Imaal Terrier people are enthusiastically discussing Co-efficients of Inbreeding but what about the actual pedigree? Is reading them becoming a lost art?
The Annual General Meeting of the Glen of Imaal Terrier Enthusiasts and Fanciers Club will be held at

At the Combined Canine Club Show in Ireland the judge of Glen of Imaal Terriers is Alexey Belkin (Russia). Does anybody know if he has any experience in Glens?
