The Glen of Imaal Terrier Association Championship Show is a chance for the many companion owners to bring their dogs to meet “the family” and possibly have a go in the ring and this year was no exception. Always nice to meet and talk to Glen enthusiasts that aren’t often seen. Judge Pat Clayton was awarding her first set of Challenge certificates in the breed and she finished off the Top Glen of the Year, Ch Romainville Billy Wizz, in fine style with the dog ticket and Best In Show. Reserve Best In Show, Best Veteran and Reserve CC was awarded to Ch Beatrix’s Boy with Windarra from Donvaleset who was not looking his ten years. Best Opposite Sex and the Bitch CC also went to a Veteran, 7 year old Ch Donvaleset Brier. The Reserve Bitch CC, Ch Jeonty MeMe Fern, headed a family affair as she was the dam of both the Best Puppy in Show, Jeonty Diamond Ring, and the Best Puppy Bitch Jeonty Minie MeMe.
Congratulations to everybody and well done to the catering team for a fabulous chocolate cake! Secretary Ann Hardy wasn’t at the show as she broke her leg the previous Sunday. It’ll be a long road back for her but everybody sends their best wishes for recovery
