We know Glen of Imaal Terrier people are nice folk. Many organisations bring in “rescue dogs” from abroad and target nice folk…just like what we are. It’s tempting to take one but take a look at this from the British Veterinary Association.

People arrange their diaries further and further in advance: The National Dog Show Schedule is out if you want to mark in next May. Terrier Day is Saturday May 11th and the 16 Glen of Imaal Terrier classes will be judged by Muriel Bailey. Entries close March 16th 2019.
The October Kennel Journal is now online. One Glen of Imaal Terrier judge listed, Eileen Foy at Welsh Kennel Club 2019.
Sometimes it’s the only thing you can do as you stand there in awe so keep clapping for Abberann Conan and Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend. These two Glen of Imaal Terriers are record breakers and a half. Conan, just very recently celebrating his 13th birthday, has overtaken the Challenge Certificate record of Brockland Brayhead Lad which-at 20-was a number that was expected to stand for a long time. It lasted for just 17 months as Conan took CC number 21 at Belfast at the end of September. Group placements for Glens aren’t that unusual in America but actual Group wins aren’t that common. This past weekend Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend took four group placements on the trot, 2 x Group 2 and 2 x Group 1 and at Greater Naples was signalled for his 6th Best In Show. a fabulous thing but it also meant he overtook Finnabair Ardmore Ned and his record of 23 Group 1s. What an example these two dogs are Glen lovers everywhere and they prove that if dedicated enough……
All the time Glen of Imaal Terriers heed the call that the time is right to leave their beloved people and do the solitary walk to the waiting eternal Glen family. All are missed and we ask that the applause keeps going for them and for another record breaking Glen who has just begun that walk. Tula was the first West Coast Glen to get a Grand Championship, the first Glen to earn the GITCA Master Versatility Award, the first and only Glen to earn Nose Work 3 and Nose Work Elite Titles. She successfully did Agility, Obedience, Rally Obedience, Earthdog, Barn Hunt & even had a Lure Coursing title. You name it and she did it with Louise. Grand Champion Broc Rua Tallulah CGS, CA, AJP, AZP, XFP, CD, RE, RATO, JE, NW2, NW3 you led the way for the breed. Thank you.
The eye testing tomorrow (Saturday 12th) at Newark is now on a different area of the showground. It will be taking place in a porter cabin outside the Joe Hallam building so DO NOT turn right as you come into the main gates, continue straight on.
ExCeL London is the home of the October Discover Dogs extravaganza. It’s on the 20th & 21st of October and there is anything and everything dog related. Glen of Imaal Terriers are there on both days if you want to say hello or actually meet one. Booth 85 is the one to head for!
