Judges Competency Framework (again)

The forthcoming JCF is still causing a lot of comment and debate. The Kennel Club have updated the FAQs again so do take some time to read them. Things that are worth comment on (going from questions that Glen of Imaal Terrier people have asked) is that 2019, 2020 & 2021 are years that judges CAN still officiate under the current rules i.e. they do not need to be members of the academy. It still hasn’t been released what a Breed Education Coordinator will actually do. Breed Clubs have to pay expenses for observers & expenses.

 

SWKA critique

GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIERS

PGD. 1) Kingcottage Boogie On Basil. Delightful temperament, wheaten & in good coat & condition, nice outline, pleasing head, good skull, foreface, muzzle & dentition, well made & proportioned body, good feet & correct quarters. Moved well.

LD. 1) Pajantick Razamataz. Another youngster with pleasing head, broad skull, nice dark eye, good dentition, lighter in bone than previous winner, compact body & good quarters.

OD. 1) Gleann Dynamite Man at Jeonty(Imp Fin). I judged this exhibit in 2015 at 9 months old & awarded him the Res CC. Today I was delighted to give him his crown & BOB. Lovely head piece, strong & correct muzzle, impressive strength in neck, well laid back shoulders, good ribs, well muscled quarters, moved with drive. 2) Boudivella Osca. This young man has matured well, sadly had to take second to first again. Lovely in outline, great body proportions, correct head structure, good muzzle, ears & mouth, well laid shoulders, strong hindquarters, moved with ease. I am sure he will achieve his title. Res CC. 3) Ch Golden Spurs.

PB. 1) Jeonty Jyn A New Hope. Lovely wheaten youngster, correct texture, super shape, feminine expressive eyes, well placed ears, medium neck, good shoulders, ribcage & short loin, well set on tail with excellent quarters. Behaved as a puppy should but when settled moved very well. CC. Sired by the BOB. 2) Romainville Rock N Rolla. 8 months old, very good movement & body shape but longer than first, head has correct proportions, well placed ears, well made quarters, coat of good texture. 3) Romainville Rock On Lizzie

JB. 1) Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage. Blue youngster with pleasing head, good skull, foreface & muzzle, strength in neck, good ribcage & well constructed quarters. On the day moved better than 2nd. 2) Boudivella Tegan. Pleasing in profile, nicely constructed body, good bite & pleasing head proportions, movement sadly let her down on the day.

PGB. 1) Wickholm Daisy Duke O’Hazard. Wheaten that I liked very much, well shaped in profile, pleasing head with good skull, well balanced foreface & muzzle, well made body, rib to loin relationship is good, moved out well.

LB. 1) Romainville Maggie May. Mature lady, wheaten coat of correct texture, quite well made body & muscled quarters, not very happy with movement.

OB. 1) Romainville Uptown Girl. Found it hard to believe this lady is 6 years old. Very good in profile, good skull & foreface, good dentition, well proportioned body, strength in neck, well laid shoulders, good ribcage & bone with excellent feet, moved very well. Unlucky to meet CC winner, Res CC. 2) Wickholm Breaking Dawn. Wheaten bitch not yet two years old so not mature as first. Lovely head of correct proportions, good skull, foreface & muzzle, dark eyes & good dentition, medium neck with good shoulder placement, good quarters & movement. 3) Romainville Whistle Dixie.

A bit quieter this weekend

The weekend before December and for many it’s the start of Christmas Shopping but some Glen of Imaal Terrier people are still out and about. The Glen Association Championship Show was judged by Ann Quinn and it was certainly worth the long trip for the Whites. Best In Show was awarded to Abberann Conan who also took Best Veteran (our oldies are having a ball at the moment) with Best Opposite Sex going to Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore. Best Puppy was “Conan’s boy” Abberann Cosmic Cowboy. The two Reserves were Rollo The Great and Donvaleset Brier, who is also a Veteran. West Midlands Terrier was another veteran BOB in the shape of Johnny Be Good at Romainville. Two HauHau Shows in Finland. The first one saw Highlander’s Dream Casper take BOB with Gleann Una Noonan Best Bitch. The results were reversed on Day 2 with Una Noonan being awarded BOB with Dream Casper Best Opposite.

Just a couple of shows reporting in from America. At Agathon Kennel Club Tipperary American Girl was Best of Breed and Daulton’s Captain Jack of Roseglen was Best Dog. At the second Agathon show American Girl again triumphed, plus OHG4, with Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen getting Best Opposite.

Griffin was adding to his alphabet of titles as he obtained his Excellent Jumpers with Weaves so he needs a lot of room now for a full shout out- Champion Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone BN RE NAP OJP JE CAX BCAT RATO CGCA TKP AJP

Well done all.

 

 

 

Glen Association Show on Sunday

The Glen Association Championship Show will be held on Sunday at Pilsley Village Hall, Peartree Road, Pilsley, Chesterfield, S45 8HU. Most will be attending via sat nav so will be putting the postcode into the machine (hence the bold). Locals to Derbyshire though, on being told that the show is at Pilsley, Derbyshire, may automatically think of the “other” Pilsley at Chatsworth. If you do end up there by mistake it is only 17 miles to the Pilsley where the show is being held so you shouldn’t miss much!

The show starts at midday and judge Ann Quinn has 20 Glen of Imaal Terriers entered for her opinion.

Midland Counties and Birmingham G & T critiques

MIDLAND COUNTIES-GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIER

May I thank the officers and committee for their hospitality. The support of the exhibitors was much appreciated, especially on a Friday. If only we could award first places to everyone.

PGD (1) George’s Rockbuster From Romainville. 2yrs blue dog. Good head with dark eye & good ear carriage. A strong neck leading to a well sprung rib. Not too long in the loin & a good length double coat. Has the desired bow to front legs & moved soundly with drive. Will only improve with maturity. BD

OD (3) 1A 1st Sage’s Romainville Fast N’furious At Wickholm. 51/2 yrs Blue dog with a good head. Correct ears, eye shape & correct scissor bite. Level gentle rise to the topline & a good broad chest. I would like to see more muscle but moved soundly.

2nd Alsteads Ch Golden Spurs Almost 4yr old blue brindle dog. Much to like and on another day positions could be reversed. Needs more drive on the move.

PB (1) George’s Romainville Rock on Lizzie. At 8 months this wheaten pup has a lot to fill out but once the muscle & maturity arrives she should turn into a nice bitch. Good angulation front & rear. Well sprung ribs. Shoulders well laid back. Nice deep chest presented with good textured double coat. Sound movement fore & aft. BP + RBB

OB (4) 1st Harley’s Ch Donvaleset Brier. At almost 10 years of age this wheaten bitch still commands in the ring. Well muscled throughout on good bone structure. Good front & rear angulation. Nice strong scissor bite, dark eye, correct ear shape & carriage. Level topline rising gently to good tail onset. Good length & texture to wiry top coat with soft undercoat presented neatly. Good broad chest with well sprung ribs. Sound movement. BB & BOB.

2nd Georges Romainville Maggie May. 3yr old wheaten bitch. Although on the smaller size she is well proportioned. Muscle will add to the overall picture as I couldn’t find any major faults. I’ll be watching her future development

Okay we’re back and…..

Glen of Imaal Terrier people have been busy, busy, busy in the last couple of weeks.

In Ireland at Bull Breeds Best of Breed was nodded for Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne with Best Dog to Abberann Cosmic Cowboy. In Denmark Hammersmolles Quick Decision earned her Danish Championship.The BIG event was the World Show in Leipzig and the shows around it. There was a large Finnish contingent down and it was certainly worth their while. At the German Winners Gleann Dear Dandelion was BOB and Gleann Cotton Cody Best Opposite with Fire & Ice Jazz Best Veteran. The German Terrier Club Show was a repeat result for Dandelion & Jazz but Rosears Master of The House was Best Opposite. The World Show was an incredible 47 entry for Glens. Gleann Cotton Cody took Best of Breed, Bear Dandelion Best Bitch and Billy Tow Vom Au Deich Best Veteran. On the way down to Germany Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo stopped off in Prasgue and added a Cz Ch to his name. At the Norwegian Winners Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard took Best of Breed with MacNallys Glenna-Roisin Best Bitch.

Canada saw 6 Group placements in 6 Shows for Abberann Phelan. 1x Gp2, 3x Gp3 and 2x Gp4. As the year draws to an end the American Show scene is hotting up. Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta was Best of Breed at Pontiac KC, Greater Muskegon KC-where she also picked up a Gp3-, Kalamazoo KC, Grand Rapids KC, Dayton KC, Sandusky & Central Ohio. Abberann The Lion Ling was Best Opposite twice with Abberann Torcan also getting the award twice along with Abberann Lament for Owen Roe taking it three times. At Dayton Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow was BOBOH and then went on to take OHG3. She was Best of Breed at Lima Kennel Club with Abberann Lament for Owen Roe Best Opposite.

Down in Florida Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend notched up a Group 2 & 4.He was also BOB at Seminole Dog Fanciers and Greater Ocala where he took another Group 4. Kilkenny’s Irish American at Castlerock was Best Bitch at Seminole and also BOB at the first show of the back to back. A cluster in Philadelphia began at Penn Treaty KC with success for Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea with Tipperary American Girl Best Bitch. At Greater Philadelphia Dog Fanciers Association American Girl took BOB (with OHG3) over William O’Shea. Kennel Club of Philadelphia was once again a triumph for William O’Shea with American Girl BOS and this was repeated at kennel Club of Philadelphia.

The “brains” side were also out. Griff did some Fast Cat qualifiers and Ginny earned her AKC Scent Work Container Novice (SCN) title!

Congratulations everybody!!

 

Until the 20th November

There won’t be any updates, news, gossip, suggestions, information, catching up, ideas, shares or anything new in the Glen of Imaal Terrier world on here until November 20th.

Don’t forget us though, particularly with the World Show at Leipzig on, and we’ll (hopefully) have a huge catch up then. Wherever you are exhibiting, trialling or just doing Glen things have a great time and remember to pass along how it all went

West Midlands Terrier

West Midlands Terrier Society entries close on Monday 6th and currently they have no Glen of Imaal Terriers entered. Helen Bakewell is the judge and the show is held at Harry Mitchell Leisure Centre, Broomfield, Smethwick, West Midlands B67 7DH which is pretty central if you live lower down the country, don’t feel like travelling up to the Glen Association Championship Show, but need a showing fix!
