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.
