Just keep on showing.

Many Glen of Imaal Terrier people who were in Amsterdam last weekend were glad to get home for a rest. Others just kept on going. It was the Baltic Weekend in Estonia. Friday was the Harjuma Group Show. Best of Breed was Pearytail Candy McCoy who was shortlisted in the Group. Pearytail Donald Dump was Best Opposite and Pearytail took BIS 2 (Breeders). Saturday was the Baltic Winners with (for Estonia) a big entry of 15. BOB to Gleann Dynamite Mike and Gleann Gildea with Nelli Best Bitch. Sunday was the Terrier Specialty with the Pearytail pair taking the top awards again. Kouvola (Finland) saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard get the nod for Best of Breed with Astoreen Best Opposite.

Welsh Kennel Club and it was Abberann Cosmic Cowboy for Best of Breed with Romainville Whistle Dixie Best Bitch. The two Reserves were Abberann Conan and Romainville Maggie May, so a double double. Jeonty Dreams A Dream of Karensbrae kept the breed flag ably flying with a 1st in the Junior Stakes. The Irish Circuit has begun with the All Terrier and Clonmel. Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage was Best of Breed at both.

In Canada Abberann Derbla has been keeping the breed flag flying with Gp3 at both Kilbride & District & St Catharines & District and Gp2 & 4 at Grey-Bruce Kennel Club (another great name). In America Nisqually KC in Washington State saw Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right take Best of Breed both days plus Gp3. Keadeen’s Boy Blue for Bluesette was Best Opposite both days and he triumphed in the Owner Handler Groups with an OH3 and OH4. Glendalough Daithi of Abberann was Best of Breed at the Upper Potomac Valley KC and Laurel Highlands Kennel Association. At Potomac Abberann Blue Sky of Glendalough took Puppy Group 1. South Adirondach Dog Club had Kilkenny’s Best of My Love take home the BOB award.

Congratulations all.

Leeds critique

GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIER (LEEDS 18)

I was rather worried that I might not be able to award the CCs when, in advance of the show, I saw the small number of dogs entered – only 9. In the event I needn’t have worried. The quality of the top winners was very good indeed.

OD (2)

1. Alstead’s Ch Golden Spurs, though he could be better in eye colour, he scored very much in head and expression over 2 and was more typey in a number of ways. Moved better behind than in front. Very good coat with the correct textures of both top coat and undercoat. Enough bone and correct set-on and carriage of tail. Plenty of body substance and well muscled. DCC.

2.Hannington’s Boudivella Oscar, Good in skull but not quite the typical head and expression of 1. Moved out well behind, better there than in front, and was correct in typical topline. Needs a bit more coat to complete the picture. RDCC

JB (2)

1. Forbes’ Jeonty Dreams a Dream with Karensbrae, very typical in outline and moved around the ring very smartly. Moved well behind and in front as well, and had correct ears. Good width of skull and enough strength of foreface, Coat could be better. OK for size and good bone and correct body proportions. Well muscled behind. A very promising youngster which went on to win the RBCC

2. Tobijanski and Tobijanski’s Jeonty Glynis Making Magic for Zippor. Not showing to good advantage and seemed a bit scared of the wind and weather, needing more ring confidence. Good body and enough bone. Could move better but this was perhaps because she was just not happy in this ring and in this weather.

LB

A difficult class. (3)

1. Hannington’s Boudivella Tegan, scored in head type body shape and coat over the others but was not good in forequarters or front movement. Moved well enough behind however with enthusiasm. OK in spring of rib and had plenty of bone.

2 James& O’brien’s Amhard Jessie Jay, good in topline but quite long in body as compared to height, not so good in eye and expression as winner. Moved better behind than 3 and was of better size also.

3. Quarrie’s Rhumsaamist Glen Elfin at Quaywest.

OB (2)

1. Alstead’s Ch Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage, quite a smart bitch when she decides to show herself off to best advantage. Better for size than 2, and better in front as well. Pleasing in head and expression, Better eye than 2. Typical topline, which is where I think she scored over the dog for BOB. Plenty of substance but at the same time not too big. I thought that she had much type and quality and was pleased to award her BCC and BOB.

2. Quarrie’s Rhumsaamist Glen Maye at Quaywest, good coat for texture and quantity. Good head properties and correct width of skull. Moved OK behind. Biggish and rather over the desired 14 inch maximum

It’s mid August….

….but the summer doesn’t end yet so where can I go with my Glen of Imaal Terrier and possibly the family?

There is a Glen fun weekend of September 1/2 at Sedgebrook Village Hall, Sedgebrook, Lincoln. NG32 2EY. There certainly is grooming, agility, and the “world famous” sausage race and that immortal thing of other things so why not go and see what they are…..you could be surprised. On Sunday there will be a fun dog show for the local people and anyone else who wishes to enter. 

Camping and caravan parking is available adjacent to the club, as well as a range of local hotels and B&B’s for those who prefer something more comfortable. For more details please call Lynne and Gordon on 01435 866575 (email lynne@1canhelp.com ) or Geraldine and Alan on 01949 842192 (email glendogs@aol.com).

World Show 2018 results…but pictures Wednesday

Planes and boats and trains bought Glen of Imaal Terrier folk to Amsterdam. There are nowhere near as many of us than in some breeds but the flag was flown proudly on all three days, nobody got an easy title. First up was the Benelux Show with 27 present. Best of Breed(CACIB & 2xCAC) was Gleann Damn Daisy with BOS (CACIB & 2x CAC) to High lander’s Dream Casper. The two Reserves-and CACs- were awarded to Gleann Una Noonan and Gleann Cotton Cody. Best Junior was awarded to Madra Athas Cayleigh Chead Gera.

The biggie of the weekend was obviously the World Show itself and there were 40 Glens entered. This time the honours went to the dog with Highlanders Dream Casper getting the nod for BOB-plus the CACIB and CACs-with Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Best Bitch and CACIBs etc. The two Reserves were Gleann Bigwig and Una Noonan. My Dear Fellow Cordula The Angel was Best Junior, Billy Tow Vom Au Deighton Best Veteran and Finnabair Broc Ria Arda of Gleann Best Puppy.

Group 3 specialties were the last day of showing for Terriers. Highlanders Dream Casper made it a double with Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne Best Bitch. The two Reserve CACs were awarded to Abberann Cosmic Cowboy and Daisy. Broc Ria was again Best Puppy and Gleann Indico Indy Best Junior.

A long list of names supported by a long list of people from different countries. Whelped in one country but owned in another was the story right through again and again. If whelped in the country of ownership often parents came from a different one. Glen of Imaal Terriers, becoming truly international….as the Finnish, Swedish, Danish, Irish, English, Dutch, German and American ringside indicated.

Great weekend and congratulations to everybody who was there

Photographs. Over the weekend we were asked if, like Crufts, it would be possible to have a record of every dog present on here? Many put photos galore on social media but not everybody is “friends” with everybody else and some just won’t do it but they will do the blog. Yep, we’ll do it but it will be Wednesday as we don’t get home until very late tonight and they have to be sorted, so that’s Wednesday’s blog sorted then!

We’ll try

Along with many other Glen of Imaal Terrier folk the trip is being made to the World Show in Amsterdam. Not for us the hotel so who knows what internet/wifi will be found to do multiple results and photographs? We’ll do our best to give you a full round up on Monday…but it might be Tuesday so bear with us if there is nothing there, or only a few things for the usual Monday round up
