Goodbye 2014.

Another year already, where did the time go? As usual we have to do the “Oscar Speech” of thanking the director and the producer but most of all it has to be the extras that are thanked in this variant. All the Glen of Imaal Terriers who perform effortlessly all the year to bring a bit of Glendom to everybody that meets them. They are the reason we get together on this page so thanks to them and thanks to all for sending the news and photographs. It couldn’t happen without you so do consider an extra New Year resolution; keeping the EFG blog EVEN MORE the place “that keeps Glen of Imaal people up to date”.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Many thanks to every one for the good entry, it was nice to see so many Glens.

Budweiser, eat your heart out.

In America the Budweiser Clydesdales are iconic but who needs something that size when you have a brace of Glens? Great picture Louise!

Mr Monday

What are you looking at?

What are you looking at?

You may have thoughts as to where your Glen of Imaal is going to go and who sits where but you should remember to check with them first. It took Freddie a while but now his people quite understand that the settee is for him!

6 sleeps to go….

Less than a week and then it’s Christmas so how about something (for us) a bit different? We’ve done lots of things (with our strapline of keeping Glen of Imaal Terrier people up to date) over the days-1650 of them and still counting-but rarely do “just” photographs. So for three days next week how about just celebrating our breed? We’re thinking anything that just says Look I’m a Glen so over to you for Mr Monday, Mr Tuesday and Madam Wednesday to star on here.
