Even the most ardent Glen of Imaal Terrier fan must admit that Glens aren’t exactly the usual animal chosen by Best In Show judges. Not that many of us manage to get through the Group, never mind getting the nod for the Ultimate Rosette, but this week TWO Glens have flown the breed flag loud and proud.
In France at a Terrier Specialty Pajantick Razzamatazz was the first one to get the pointed finger to the Top Spot. Over in America a cluster in Oklahoma saw an unbelievable 4 Group 1sts, 1 RBIS and 1 BIS for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend. Gentlemen we salute you!! Tipperary American Girl gave a shout for the ladies with a Group 3 at Bushy Run Kennel Club.
At Windsor Boudivella Osca was BOB with Boudivella Tegan Best Bitch and Best Puppy. Bray was a nod for the ever young Abberann Conan with Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Best Opposite. Over in Scandinavia Tuusula All Breed was a success for Jeonty Just a Dream Ansa and her Finnish Championship. It was the same at Riihimaki when Pearytail Candy McCoy’s BOB also gave her a Finnish Champion, Rosears Master of the House was Best Dog. At the Midnight Show in Gallivare (Sweden) BOB was Gleann Eager Edgar with Gleann Gilda with Nelli Best Bitch.
Gabriella Isabella writes “Hurray! It was the Glen- weekend at our terrierclubshow in Wittau-Großenzersdorf. Duana was second best an on sunday best baby. Mum Aoife was second and third best longlegged terrier. And what a surprise Bairre, Aoife and Duana were selected as best breeding group. We were so happy, to see our breeding acivities honored. Thank you to all that made our success possible” and Kate Flack brings us all up to date on her BIG dog showing trip “Left home June 12 & of the 14 possible show days we showed 10. Em (Keadean Sir Emmet Mingus Glas) worked hard – but our daily routine and focus paid off: 1-Terrier Group 1 (Judge Robert Hutton); 3 Terrier Group 4s (Judges Del Richards, Kenneth Berg, Carolyn Graham); 1 NOHS BIS (Judge Evalyn Gregory); 2 NOHS RBIS (Judges Robert Hutton, Wendy Maisey); 5 NOHS Terrier Gr1; 2 NOHS Terrier Gr2; 2 NOHS Terrier Gr3; and, 2 NOHS Terrier Gr4.”
