Top billing today has to go to possibly the greatest Glen of Imaal Terrier ambassador of the moment, that catalogue model, that hunting man extraordinary, that evergreen 15 year old Rainbow Springs Oliver Twist who has just added another title to his repertoire with a Nose Work Element title in INTERIORS from the National Association of Canine Scentwork (NACSW)!!! The trial was held at Camp Harrington in Boylston, MA and he located the hidden birch scent in 4 rooms set in different buildings (in an office, a bathroom, a yurt, and a game room). Owner Monique says how much he still enjoys “working” and we are so proud of him and his NOSE and she loves being part of his team!! Ber-D-Mar’s Ballygriffin of Greystone, also a definite contender on the ambassador ability front, earned his first qualifying score in Novice Jumpers With Weaves and also a second place! Not to bad for his first time in the agility ring
The Glen Association is the last Championship Show of the year for the breed and it was quite an event for the Whites. Nick, being a total romantic, bought Ann over to a dog show for their Golden Wedding but what a day for them. Abberann Phelan took his 3rd CC and Best In Show and so became the youngest Glen to get made up at a week short of 17months, (taking the accolade from Ch Winni Wanna Make Music By Jeonty at a week over 17 months) sister Dersla took the Reserve Bitch CC and their imported puppy from America, the first US bred Glen to be shown here, Daultons Midnight Sky of Galore took Best Puppy in Show. To finish it all off they even won the rather handsome Christmas cake in the raffle. Judge Don Harley also made up another bitch Champion with Romainville Ellie taking her 3rd CC and BOS In Show. Reserve Best In Show was awarded to the Dog RCC winner Amhard High Flyer.
Well done all.
