This is impressive!

Ollie (Rainbow Springs Oliver Twist) did it and now Louise Lopez sends the following:-

GCH Broc Rua Tallulah CGC CA AJP AXP XFP CD RE CGC RATO JE NW2 !!! The Nose Work 2 title was earned today in Orangevale, CA. Tula did a magnificent job and became the 2nd Glen of Imaal Terrier in the US to win this title, after the magnificent Rainbow Springs Oliver Twist. Tula’s an incredible girl and I’m so grateful–to her, to Noreen O’More and to all of our instructors. We searched a multipurpose room (containers), 2 classrooms, an outdoor lunch area and 4 vehicles in the playground. 36 participants, only 12 passed. First place dog’s time for 5 searches was 3 min 21 seconds. Tula’s was 4:41.

More news on the performance front from Mark & Kelli:- Another fabulous weekend for our Glens! Finnabair Winston O’Reilley, BN, RA,CGCA, CD, TD, THDA, JE, NJP, NAP, RATS, VCD1, NW1 competed in AKC Rally/Obedience trials this weekend. Winston became the first Glen of Imaal to earn a Graduate Novice Obedience title. Winston also earned his first two qualifying scores towards his AKC Companion Dog Excellent title while also completing his AKC Rally Advanced Title and earned his first two qualifying scores towards his AKC Rally Excellent Title. Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone,BN, RA,CGCA JE, NJP, RATO, NW1 also earned his AKC Rally Advanced title this weekend. Fun weekend!

On the exhibition front only WELKS has reported in with a BOB for Romainville Billy Wizz (certainly on a roll at the moment) with BOS & BP going to his kennel mate Romainville Annabelle.

Well done folks!!
