It’s brains to the fore…..

Normally the weekend round up starts with the “beauty” of Glen of Imaal Terriers but this as week it has to be the “brains” as Louise Lopez writes “Tula made a little bit of Glen history today: She became the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to earn the NACSW Nose Work 3 title. And she did it in style! She was the top dog in a field of 30 and the only dog who actually qualified to earn the title today–and, so, first place automatically. The silver tin at the bottom of the photo contains all of today’s hides . It’s presented to the top dog of the day–and, today, that’s Tula!”

The exhibition folk were also out with a Best of Breed for Emerald Isle’s Keely with Daulton at Delaware (Ohio) Kennel Club whilst in Europe Lahti International had a Best of Breed for Gleann Dynamite Mike and a BOS for Gleann Dear Dandelion, Hanover International saw Fire & Ice Naomi waved to the top spot in the breed and Abberann Phelan was Best of Breed (and Group 2!) at Cloghran with Abberann Reach for the Stars Ruari Best Bitch.

In the UK it was Midland Counties and another double, this time for the Romainvilles: Billy Whizz was Best of Breed with Whistle Dixie Best Opposite. The two Reserves were Pajantick Razamataz and Romainville Moira with Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage Best Puppy.

Congratulations everybody!!

Just how inbred are Glen of Imaal Terriers?

The above was one of the questions that came in when we asked, a couple of months ago, for things to make Glen of Imaal Terrier people think.

Glens have quite a limited gene pool and a history of very close inbreeding (like many breeds in all honesty) and this does increase the risk of inheriting genetic diseases but, so far, the breed has only seemingly got “one biggie” PRA and there is a solution to it. So is our limited gene pool a big a problem as everybody is forecasting or do the bar-sinisters in the breed really alter perceived perceptions and help to minimize the serious and detrimental effects of genetic bottlenecking which are the current buzz-words?

Brotherly Group 2s

One show was bigger than the other but Glen of Imaal Terriers now have another two siblings (as well as the Abberann boys) that can record Group Placements on the same day in different countries. In Finland Gleann Dynamite Mike took Group 2 at Seinajoki International and in the UK Gleann Dynamo Man at Jeonty also took G2 at Birmingham Gundog & Terrier!

At Lahti Puppy Show (12 Glens entered) BOB went to Rosears Miss Miimos with Rosears Master of the House Best Opposite

Discover Dogs is always a great place to meet Glen of Imaal Terriers. At ExCel this weekend Misty, Dylan, Toby & Candy flew the breed flag with style & aplomb….Toby in particular showing true Glen temperament!

Good weekend everybody.
