Keep your eyes open please

Yes, this is a UK blog but many American Glen of Imaal Terrier owners read it. Sandy jumped out of the car whilst the owner stopped for coffee and hasn’t been seen since. If you have Southern Californian friends or groups please share

…and in Finland

We’ve had a look at Glen of Imaal Terrier tracking/nosework in the USA and UK and now Finland. There the intention is to track wounded deer so obviously something a little different is used to aniseed or sausages.

Beauty and Brains

We’re used to hearing about Glen of Imaal Terrier siblings taking awards at the same show or in the same area but what about different countries? At Welsh Kennel Club Best of Breed was Bregorrey Madam Defiance with the dog ticket (and Best Puppy) going to Gleann Dynamo Man at Jeonty whilst over at the Baltic Winners and the Baltic Terrier Show in Estonia brother Gleann Dynamite Mike was BOB both days. Stiubhard Cutie Pie at Gleann took Best Bitch to him on both days. It was a double weekend also for Marfidal Emousonia who took home the big rosette at both Kouvola and Heinola. Marfidal Spsrkele of Meomodo was Best Bitch to him at Kouvola.

At the Arctic Circle Dog Show (how about that for a name) MacNallys Gracie was Best of Breed and at Tralee, the final show of the Irish Circuit, Abberann Phelan was BOB, and a very nice Group 3, with Ballyclare May Best Opposite.

A breed first is proudly announced by Anne-Marie Pember with her Kera taking the Barn Hunt Master title and Mary Householder is equally proud to tell everybody that Hannah has obtained her coursing ability title.

Well done everybody.
