Glen of Imaal Terrier enthusiasts, followers and owners like to keep out there! At Leeds Championship Show judge Muriel Bailey paid homage to the thing we all know, Glens just get better as they get older, with both Challenge Certificates going to Veterans. It was a welcome to the Upper House as Donvaleset Rebus (subj. to KC confirmation) will now be adding CHAMPION to his name and Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm was awarded the bitch ticket. Gleann Dynamo Man at Jeonty was Best Puppy. The Veteran theme also continued over in Dublin with Abberann Conan, at 10, making a return to the ring to take BOB and his sister Ennya was Best Bitch.
There were three shows in Finland over the weekend and the Gleann affix was very much to the fore. Gleann Una Noonan was Best of Breed twice with Gleann Dynamite Mike taking number 3. The three “Opposites” were Gleann Ungus MacGuire, Rosears Humpty Dumpty and Gleann Curvy Corvette. Gleann may have been in two countries but so was Abberann as Abberann Torcan took a group 3 and group 4 respectively at Great Lakes All Terrier and Waukesha (Wisconsin) respectively. Daulton’s Emerald Green was also a double group placer over the weekend with two Owner Handler Group 3s in Ohio.
And what about the “brains” brigade? Mary Housholder’s Hannah took her first RATO leg and Monique sends the following….if there is room “Oliver had a great time at the NACSW Nose Work Element trial in Woodstock, CT on Saturday. He found all the birch scented hides in 4 separate vehicle searches and earned a Level 1 Vehicle element (L1V) title! It has been an embarrassment of riches lately and I’m so grateful that he still enjoys competing. There were also “brains” going on up in Washington State as Jeff writes “It was a busy weekend for Ciarán (Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette.) He spent all day Saturday on a table greeting strangers and representing his breed in the “Celtic Kennels” at the Seattle Highland Games (in Enumclaw, Washington.) Sunday, to unwind, he went rat hunting. Ciarán qualified in both morning and afternoon trials, earning his RATN title. He finished with style, winning “high in class” on his second run
Millions of congratulations on a great weekend for the breed
