Judge: Mrs F Kaye
We’ll start off in Europe as usual and what a start in Finland. At Lahti 2 day International Show Gleann Cotton Cody was Best of Breed, Gleann Una Noonan Best Bitch, but then he went onto Group 1 and BIS 4!!! Is there any Glen of Imaal Terrier that has done so well in Europe? Marfidal Devil’s Rock was in Estonia and took BOB there.
A belated result from Australia. Taufield Queen of Tara was Neuter BOB and then was Neuter Runner Up in Group. Another Group notch in his belt to Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend with a couple of Group 3s in Florida, with Finnabair You Should Be So Lucky taking an OHG3, and Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock was in North Carolina for a run of Best of Breeds, Cary & Alamance KC amongst them. Jeff Dairiki sends news from the two-day Peninsula Dog Fanciers Club cluster in Bremerton, Washington. Seven Glens (1-2-3/1) showed each day.On Saturday, March 24, under judge Marjorie Underwood, Ciarán (GCHB Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette CAA RATCHX3 CZ8B) took BOB/BOBOH and went on to an owner-handler group 1. Eili (Daulton’s Eili from Emerald Isle) BOW, Stella (GCHB Keadeen’s Second Star to the Right) BOS, Quinn (CH Kilkenny’s Love and Happiness CA SE RATCHX3 CZ8S) took Select Dog, and Miles (Keadeen’s Kind of Blue) WD. Sunday, March 25, under judge Charlotte Patterson, Stella took BOB, Miles BOW, Emmet (GCHB Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas CA RATS) BOS/BOBOH on to owner-handler group 3, Ciarán SEL, and Lulu (Keadeen’s Luck Be a Lady) WB.
Gleann Holy Hannah took a Group 2 in Canada so an excellent weekend for the Gleann kennel!
The UK has Any Variety Not Separately Classified which means all the dogs from the various groups show together. It can be daunting but sometimes Glens can do it as ably illustrated by Jeonty Glynis Making Magic for Zippor who was Best NSC at Oswestry.
Great weekend everybody!!
These are “on sale” for 24 hours only so if you want the ultimate Glen of Imaal Terrier car act quickly
