Let’s celebrate the end of August with a smile or two. If you’ve not been showing over the summer and will be starting again soon which will you be?
Glen of Imaal Terriers have AGAIN been taking Group placements. Limerick, Killarney & Tralee finished off the Irish circuit with a full set of Best of Breeds for Abberann Phelan (plus a Group 3) with Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Best Opposite at each show.
At the European Winner Gleann Dynamite Mike took the top rosette in the breed with his dam, Gleann Una Noonan Best Bitch. Susamuran Per Amore took BOB at Helsinki Vetcare Show. Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta took back to back Group 2s at Sugarbush KC whilst Daulton’s Wild Night Galore took two Best of Breeds at Newtown and one at Elm City KC.
PLEASE ASK YOUR GLEN …
… if s/he would be happy to make a contribution to the International Glen of Imaal Terrier Database at the Animal Health Trust?!
It’s easy … all you need to do is persuade your Glen to let you take 5 cheek swabs …
We have a webpage explaining all about our DNA Archive … an invaluable resource for future health research projects … and we have even made a video to show you how to take the swabs!
Here’s the DNA Archive page: http://www.efghealth.co.uk/dna_archive.html
And the video is here: http://www.efghealth.co.uk/dna_archive.html#video

The European Dog Show is in Belgium this weekend. For anybody interested in seeing what’s what they have released the official programme online. It’s very smart, very professionally done and with some seriously expensive advertising. A guide to all the breeds exhibiting is also in it. Glen of Imaal Terriers are on Sunday, ring 35 in Hall 6 and there is a fine looking DOCKED Glen illustrating what we look like…..if only.
Online entries for Belfast Championship Show close today. Terrier Day is Saturday 24th September and the judge for Glen of Imaal Terriers is Cathy Delmar. Darlington also finally closes today, Glens are being judged by Max King
Group placings galore for Glen of Imaal Terriers with a Group 1 and 3, yes 3 in 3 different countries, Group 4s plus a Best Puppy In Show! Glens also accounted for an Open Show Group 4 as well. Is this the breed’s most successful weekend ever? The Group 1 was annexed by Abberann Torcan in America and the 3s by his brother Phelan in Ireland, another US placing by Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore and Finland saw Gleann Elite Ellie take the third. Best Puppy was also Stateside with Kilkenny’s Midleton of Irish Spirit.
It was at Anderson KC where Torcan triumphed, Tioga County KC for Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore, Clonmel for Abberann Phelan (Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Best Opposite) and Heinola All Breed had Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo taking Best Opposite to Gleann Elite Ellie. Kilkenny’s Midleton of Irish Spirit besides the BPIS also took a Puppy Group 2 and it was Pembroke Dog Show (Wales) that saw Kingcottage Boogie on Basil take the Open Show Group placement.
In Estonia 3 Best of Breeds were awarded to Gleann Eager Edgar and at Kouvola Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo took BOB. The German Winners Show at Leipzig saw a double double with BOB going to Fire & Ice Liberty, BOS to Fire & Ice Moonraker and the two Junior Winners to McJakes Aivy and Mcjakes Ayle. At Olympic Kennel Club Keadeen’s Second Star to the Right took Best of Breed with Keadeens Blue Boy for Bluesette Best Opposite.
Welsh Kennel Club saw a new Champion with Pajantick Star Trooper taking the all important 3rd CC and Best of Breed. Best Bitch was awarded to Romainville Fade To Grey with the two Reserves being Golden Spur and Romainville Maggie May. Best Puppy was new kid on the block Wickholm Breaking Dawn very ably handled by young Emily Sage. Best Veteran was awarded to Donvaleset Rebus
Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas added another string to the bow with a CA (coursing aptitude) award
What a weekend, what a breed!!
