What a set of results to bring together; reckon it is three new Glen of Imaal Terrier Champions, two new working titles plus numerous Group Placements. The 3 newbies are Abberann Karl, Keadeen’s Sir Emmett Mingus Glas & Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone. Karl took his third ticket at Belfast with Abberann Ennya taking the Bitch CC and Abberann Phelan & Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Taking the respective two Reserves. Keadeen’s Sir Emmett Mingus Glas took his title at the Monroe KC cluster with Best of Winners all three days. Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone took his title with 2 Best Opposites at the West Velusia KC back to backs. Congratulations to the breed’s new Champions but special applause for Griff as his front CH will give a bit of balance to the BN, RA, CGCA, RATO, JE, NJP, CA(NW1) that appear at the back of his name.
Monique writes about the mighty Ollie “Oliver earned his Nose Work 3 Vehicle title (NW3-V) at the NACSW Nose Work trial in Ashby, Massachusetts on Saturday. The weather was finally cooler and he was extremely motivated to find the hidden birch, anise, and clove odours.” With Laura writing that Niamh has earned her Master FAST agilty title. 10 qualifying runs are required to get this.
At Carlow Championship Show Abberann Phelan was Best of Breed with Group 4, Best Bitch was Ir Ch Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore. At Gig Harbour in America Keadeen’s Chloe was BOB & BOBOH Group 2 at one of the shows and Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette was BOB at the other.
The West Volusia Finnabair All In took the top award and OH Group 4 at the first show and Finnabair Song O’My Heart was BOB plus OH Group 3 as well as Terrier Group 3. A cluster at Monroe, Michigan saw Abberann Torcan take all three of the Best of Breeds. The only European result to come in was the Hyvinkaa Group Show In Finland with Gleann Damn Daisy Best of Breed and Susamurun Resta Qui Best Bitch.
Looking at the Glen Gathering group photo from Barre, MA it was one heck of a day.
Everybody should give everybody else a round of applause-you all do Glen of Imaal Terriers so proud!!!!!
West Midlands Terrier is having their 70th Anniversary Show on November 28th. It’s a good show and, over the years, they have certainly supported Glen of Imaal Terriers. The schedule is available on Fossedata
Excellent list from the IKC! Anybody care to comment?
