Yet another month.

Seriously another month has gone by since the last reminder about the 2018 (UK resident) Glen of Imaal Terrier Survey. When it went up at the end of August there was a “what do you mean, 4 months to the end…” reaction. The year is slipping by so fast. So have you filled it in yet? It doesn’t matter whether you have a pet, a show dog or a rescue. If you have a Glen we’d like you to take a look and fill it in. It won’t take long and no personal information is taken unless you wish to leave it.

Also a reminder that the DNA Archive won’t be finishing at the end of the year. The idea of it is that it will be there to hopefully benefit the breed in years to come. Do your bit for Glens and help out. It isn’t difficult, just have a look at the website.

Yes, you’re right all these health type reminders are a bit boring to read but they’ll continue to appear because HEALTH MATTERS.

GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIER

VD: 1) Multi Champion Abberann Conan, Res CC & Best Veteran. Of course I instrantly recognised this old boy as my BOB at Crufts looked it up and it was 2008, amazing he is still in fine condition 10 years later. His muscle in his hindquarters is quite unbelievable, he is so fit. I much admired his condition & type still. Gorgeous head & eye, a better front than most in the breed. Nails need attention & his coat is very silky now. Such a happy dog moving with such verve.

PD: 1) Borderglens The Edge with Romainville. Two real baby boys! Delightful temperament and beautiful heads, eyes & expressions. The winner more confident moving & slightly better in topline & tail carriage. Both have excellent bone & good hard coats coming along. 2) Teamrach Rock Steady Beat with Romainville. A little taller & needs more ring practice. Good neck, promising rear, but certainly needs time to mature & sort his head out for showing.

LD:) 1) Pajantick Razamataz. Coat rather all over the place & looks very patchy. I would be inclined to pull the whole lot out and start again, looks two-toned at present. A grand dog right through & moves well all round. Good strong legs & super bone. A beautiful head tops it all.

OD: 1) Abberann Cosmic Cowboy CC,BOB. Although lots I preferred about the old boy his coat wasn’t as hard as this younger boy. Strong & very fit. Lovely head & neat ears, which are well set & carried. OK in front, grand bone for his size. Good firm backline, nice over croup. Well made quarters & tailset is good. A powerful impressive mover. Has a collar line round neck which seems to cut his withers & makes him appear flat there.

JB: 1) Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae. Good head properties, neat small ears. Fair front & she moves well coming towards. Furnishings too soft, particularly on head. Excellent body for age, well set & carried tail. Powerful build for a junior, if her coat hardens up she will do well in future.

PGB: 1) Romainville Rock’N’Rolla at Coedrhosyn. Probably up to maximum height of 14ins, but she is in balance for height to length proportion. Very strong & sturdily built. Most lovely head & expression, neat ears. Ok in front & rear angles for the breed, moves well all round.

LB: 1) Romainville Maggie May Res CC. 5year old in good form for body & strength. Good firm backline, pleasing head & broad jaw. Ok in front as she is allowed to turn her front feet out a trifle. Sound rear excellent on the move. 2) Amhard Jessie Jay. Good hard head hair & backcoat. Has a nice strong head for a bitch. Fair front, heavy & very overweight in body, she “plods” moving. I liked her a lot & in better condition could do well.

OB: 1) Romainville Whistle Dixie CC. Very out of coat but what was there was hard & workmanlike. Lovely head & expression. Excellent bone & feet, good in body properties and firm topline. Enough rear angulation, well set & carried tail. Good precise mover all ways. 2) Ir Ch Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne. Knuckles over in front & too much crook. Otherwise a lovely bitch all through, if her front had been better she would probably have been Best of Breed. I loved her head & body. Correct size for a bitch & so powerful in rear too.

Catching up

Championship, Open, Breed, Variety, Brains & serious socilising..Glen of Imaal Terriers have been doing their stuff this weekend.

Where to start this weekend? Finland as the breed’s fabulous Veterans are saluted. At Hyvinkaa Group Show Gleann Una Noonan was Best of Breed, Best Veteran & Group 3. marfidal Rain Dance was Best Opposite Sex to her. In Tallinn Rosears Master of the House was BOB whilst at the Danish Winners Gleann Gildea with Nelli was Best of Breed and Gleann Ho Ho Hogan Best Dog. The Danish Club Specialty Show on the following day had Abberann Celtic Princess in the top spot with Gleann Ho Ho Hogan Best Dog.

A bit quieter weekend in America (people getting prepared for Montgomery perhaps) but still Group placements.  Two Group 2s for Kilkenny Across The Universe at Setanta at Sheboygan and a OHG4 for Tipperary That Girl who was Best Bitch to Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friends BOB at Butler County who Himself then took a Group 2 at the second Butler County Show. West Volusia KC saw Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock take Best of Breed.

Glens were in varieties in the UK and most successfully. Boudivella Osca was at Bedfordshire Canine Society where he took Best NSC, Group 4 and 1st in the Vulnerable Breed Stakes. Up in Scotland Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae was at Perthshire CC and was rewarded with a Group 1 placement from NSC Terrier.

Monique writes that “Ginny earned her AKC Advanced Interior Scent Work title on Sunday.  This title combined with the 3 earned last weekend in Advanced Buried, Container, and Exterior completes the requirements for her overall Scent Work Advanced (SWA) title!” and the Dutch Glen Games in the Netherlands were evidently a total blast and the NE Glen Gathering in Massachusetts had a wonderful time practising sociability for their big 25th next year!

Great weekend everybody.

Where is the Glen of Imaal Terrier going?

Time flies, it has been already three years ago that we published some breed specific stats based on our Glen-Footprints Database. During these three years we made numerous additions and changes, so we thought this is a good moment to update the statistics and to share the results with you. To get access please use this link: http://www.glen-footprints.com/en/facts-figures-2018
We’d like to thank each and every one of you for your contribution and we hope we can count on you again in the future.
