Glen of Imaal Terriers
Puppy Dog 2

1. Hannington’s Boudivella Oscar 9 months Wheaten Dog, well made, a little immature in head at present. Moved with drive

2. Rogers’ Kingcottage Boogie on Basil, well boned 10 months Wheaten, sound construction, good head. Ear carriage erratic and moved on three tracks.

Junior Dog 1

1. Rogers’ Gleann Dynamo Man at Jeonty (Imp), blue brindle youngster possessing good strong head, well boned throughout, impressive shoulders and forehand. Well sprung ribs. Balanced construction and moving well, despite his youth more than sufficient quality for CC& BOB.

Post Graduate Dog 1

1. George & Sullivans’s Romainville Jazz Man 2yo blue dog with good bone. Lovely dark eye and pigmentation. Mouth and hind movement less pleasing.

Limit Dog 1

1. Davis’ Donvaleset Rafferty at Viahninns, heavily boned blue dog, good strong head, good mouth, sound construction. Great character but not moving as well as he should.

Open Dog 2

1. George & Sullivan’s Ch Romainville Billy Whizz, quality heavyweight Wheaten, soundly made. Moved with drive and showed well. Carrying a little too much coat making his neck appear stuffy, which it is not. Res CC

2. Rogers’ Bregorrey Wannabe Victory by Jeonty, blue dog well- made but would have preferred a more masculine head. Not moving as well as the winner today.
