The Kennel Club Breed Record Supplement for April to June list 16 new registrations for Glen of Imaal Terriers; two litters and two importations. This gives 42 up to yet for this year compared with 18 in the same period in 2013. It might not look many to somebody in the more popular breeds but for a long time now Glens have monitored themselves via the worldwide population and at the moment it is growing in leaps and bounds!

Glen of Imaal Terrier people had a very busy weekend. At Welsh Kennel Club BOB was awarded to Romainville Ellie with the dog ticket going to Kirikee Ronan O’Gara and thus making him a Champion!! The two reserves were Young May Moon & Romainville Billy Whizz with Bonny Nell getting Best Puppy. Over in Finland Gleann Rabarber Drom was Best of Breed & Best veteran at Raisio. In Denmark at the Danish Terrier Show Rosears Humpty Dumpty was Best of Breed, became a Danish Champion & then got the nod for Reserve Best In Show! Clonmel in Ireland was a double for brother & sister Abberann Phelan & Dervla with Phelan going BOB.
In American Glentyrs Lady Isabelle at Castlerock was BOB at Greater Hickory Kennel Club (what a great name) and GCH Emerald Isle Keely with Daulton took two Group 4s in Ohio. Whilst all the showing was going on Laura Trainor was out Barn Hunting with Kylee & Niamh and both saw qualifiers in Novice.
Well done to everybody!
Tess, a Guide Dog, has gone missing. Curly coats used to be quite distinctive but not they easily can get mistaken for a Poodle cross. If you see anything like her though do let Guide Dogs know.
