We don’t often run petitions but many Kennel Clubs already ask for this before registering puppies so why shouldn’t ours? If you think DNA profiling of all pups registered with the Kennel Club UK to ensure correct parentage is a good idea please consider signing.
The EFG Fun Day (on July 16th) always has a habit of turning into a weekend. Well Glen of Imaal Terrier people, any dog people really, like to chat, gossip and eat and, of course, supper must be taken. Suddenly it is quite late so it’s easier to stay up a bit longer than drive home or go to bed!
If you’d like to bring a tent, caravan or motorhome just let Jean (firstname.lastname@example.org) know and she’ll make sure there is room. Also accomadation can be arranged at local Bed & Breakfasts etc.
Midland Counties (late October) have released their schedule. Glen of Imaal Terriers are to be judged by Stephen Holmes and terrier Day is Thursday 27th.
The 2016 World Show may have been in Moscow but Glen of Imaal Terrier people were there. It was a three day event for Terrier folk and a 3 day success for Gleann Bigwig & Pearytail Artless Tess as they got BOB & BOS 3 days out of 3. Meomodo Fantasterrific Arien was Junior World Winner with Pearytail Candy McCoy Best Junior on the other two days.
At Blackpool Young May Moon took Best of Breed with Bendikes Edward Bear at Squiresbeach Best Opposite. Over in America Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore took top spot in Glens at both Mid-Hudson & Shawangunk KC whilst Keadeen Blue Boy for Bluesette did “beauty & brains” par excellence with an Owner Handler Group 3 and obtained his Barn Hunt Q!
As a Breed we aren’t often awarded with Best In Show but we have a new recruit to those hallowed ranks. Kingcottage Boogie on Basil took Best Not Separately Classified, then the Terrier Group and then the ultimate, ultimate finger point for Best In Show at Carmarthen! His photograph was sent but the editorial decision has been made to go with the rosette shot as Beth’s OMG he gave it us face isn’t exactly flattering on her.
Applause for everybody and particularly Basil.

Don’t forget (as if you could) that it is the EU referendum vote day today. All we are saying is just get out there and do it!
All dogs (by law) must have been micro-chipped pre April this year so that isn’t a problem when booking your dog in for the eye-testing by Peter Bedford at Swineshead, Lincolnshire. What should you do though if you want to book in for litter screening? It’s no problem as there will be somebody on site qualified to micro-chip the litter. Do remember though to let Jean (email@example.com) know that the service will be required.
5 Glen of Imaal Terriers are entered at Blackpool this coming weekend. Terrier Day is Friday 24th and Glens are 3rd in Ring 16 and ARE NOT in the ring before 10.30am
