Soon be March….

…..and exhibiting will begin in earnest for many. Glen of Imaal Terrier people are still out and about with their dogs though. At Devon & Cornwall Terrier Romainville Freddie’s Choice was Best of Breed whilst that award went to Amhard Lightening Flash at Sporting Terrier of Yorkshire. Meomodo Fantabulous Amy took a Baltic trip and picked up rosettes from Latvia & Lithuania.

Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend left the cold weather of New York to travel back to Florida and picked up (at least) 4 Best of Breeds and one Group 4 placing at Okaloosa Kennel Club.

Canada recently recognised Glens so welcome to the first news from there. Gleann Holy Hannah on her first weekend showing took Best Baby Puppy In Show. What a start to a career!

Kelli had a superb weekend with her boys:-“Closing out our three day funtastic weekend with: 1 barn hunt master Q For Winston with second place; 3 CAT Q’s for Cooper with new CA title. 6 FAST CAT Q’s and new BCAT title for Cooper. 2 standard agility Q’s for Griffin, 2 FAST CAT Q’s for Griffin, 6 CAT Q’s For Griffin’s CAX!!!!! 🏆 some ribbons are missing. So much accomplished this weekend!! We had some great JWW runs but not in the green ribbons this time. So proud of team terrier and so fortunate to have spent such an amazing weekend with my 🐶 dogs!”

Bregorrey Sovereign Storm was also on “brains brigade” by earning his Canine Good Citizen award and returning some very fast times in a coursing test.

Congratulations everybody and needing a lie down just reading about Kelli’s activities.

National Terrier (postal) entries close tomorrow & Crufts passes

National Terrier postal entries close tomorrow. The show is on April 1st at Stafford County Showground. Peter Bakewell will be judging the Glen of Imaal Terriers. Just for interest he is probably one of the longest judges of the breed as there are photographs from 1980. Both Peter and the person showing the dog would probably sue if it was publicly shown how young they once were!

From FDS – Fosse Data Systems Ltd.

Please be advised that all Crufts passes, both UK (sent second class mail) and Overseas, have been dispatched today 15th February 2017 via the Royal Mail. If you have not received your pass by Friday the 24th February 2017 please contact us on 01788 860960 quoting your reference number.
