It might be the middle of December but Glen of Imaal Terrier people were busy, busy, busy in the showring.
With so much to report on top of the heap must go to Laura and Niamh with their 3rd place in the Time2Beat at the Eukanuba Agility Invitational. Great for a Glen to go so far. The fabulous action shot below is a Mark Brown special but nobody sent any other pictures of the 4 day showing event. Hopefully folk were just enjoying themselves and when they get home photos will be shared…hint..hint. The week began at the fabulously named Space Coast Kennel Club with a BOB for GCH Finnabair Song O’My Heart and BOS for GCH Kilkenny Sullivan of Castlerock. Day 2 went to GCH Finnabair Ardmore Ned and CH Glentyrs Lady Isabelle at Castlerock. Day 3 had new winners for the event into the frame with the BOB to GCH Abberann Torcan and Best Opposite to GCH Daulton’s Emerald Green. Day 4 and the actual Eukanuba Show had the brother and sister act of Ned and Nellie (Song O’My Heart) taking the rosettes again with Ned BOB. With so many Professional Handlers on the American show scene (Glens themselves had four at Space Coast) a National Owner Handler Series is run with the finals taking place at the Eukanuba week. GCH Abberann Abigail was victorious with Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystoke getting Best Opposite. Not everybody was in Florida though with Ch Daulton’s Princess C Hatteras taking BOB at Richland County Kennel Club
Over in Europe the Amsterdam Winners had an extra day and that was the Holland Cup. Triumphant on both days was Ch Abberann Phelan, who needs belated congratulations on obtaining his Irish Championship a couple of weeks before his 3rd CC at the Glen Association Show so when everything is confirmed does this make him an International? Daultons Midnight Sky of Galore was Best Opposite both days so again (we think) the highest placing American bred (and only one) ever to exhibit there. Too young for the CACIB she took him the Junior Winner title.
The Swedish Winners in Stockholm is a popular event. Glen of Imaal Best of Breed was Tirhogar Eamond The Moon Rocket with Glenrosedale Aoibheann Nion Rós Best Opposite. Junior titles were on offer and they went to Mac Nally’s Gorrie and Mac Nally’s Gracie respectively.
Congratulations to each and everyone!!!!
