The internet is a decent enough reference source but sometimes a real life person is needed and this is why we’d like to introduce Breed Buddies. The Buddy will be there for anybody who wants to know more about Glen of Imaal Terriers. Maybe general advice, maybe specific, maybe they already have a Glen and would like to meet somebody in the area. They could be first timers, second timers or third but still a little apprehensive about asking for help or thoughts. A Breed Buddy would be there on the end of the telephone or email to give that personal touch that Dr Google can’t.
So could you be a Breed Buddy? The only ability needed is to know something about Glen of Imaal Terriers and be willing to help. It doesn’t even matter if you don’t have Glens anymore because if you had them once you quite probably have more knowledge than the person contacting you. Your name and details (you can choose what you want to appear but you must be contactable) will appear on the website, given out by the EFG secretary and, who knows, possibly in the future incorporated into a flyer. If you think you could be a Breed Buddy do drop Jean Rogers an email.
….but Glen of Imaal Terriers (and their people) were still out there.
Midland Counties saw Mike Brown in the centre of the ring, it was the thought of the show that kept him going through his long weeks of chemotherapy and he was so pleased to be able to be there after a “sage nod” from his consultant. Best of Breed was Pajantick Razamataz with Wickholm Breaking Dawn Best Bitch. Jeonty Yippe Kiaye and Jeonty Letty Be Magic taking the respective Reserves. Best Veteran, Johnny Be Good of Romainville, left spectators in no doubt how thrilled he was to be back in the ring again.
Seinajoki (Finland) was a BOB for Cairdiulacht Daibhi MacMiolmor and Gleann Una Noonan was Best Bitch & Best Veteran. Delaware (Ohio) KC saw the breeds only reported Group placement when Daulton’s Ciaran of Pine Meadow was OHG3. Sister Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow was Best Opposite. The 2nd Delaware Show saw Finnabair You Should Be So Lucky take top award. Daulton’s Eili from Emerald Isle was Best of Breed last weekend at both Wenatchee Kennel Club shows and got her first Group placement (Gp4)
Jeonty Letty Be Magic was at Northwich & District Canine Society and had an excellent day with AVNSC Junior, Reserve Best NSC and a 1st in the Junior Stakes.
Karen Forbes was invited to represent the Kennel Club at a meet and greet to show that with care dogs and horses can be in the same place during exercise so Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae went as part of the pack.
Monique reports for the “brains” department:- At an AKC Agility trial on Saturday, Ginny qualified in her first attempt ever in the Open Standard Preferred class and then qualified for the third time earning her title in the Open Jumpers Preferred class!
Already the last Friday so only eight left before Christmas….where the heck as the year gone? As it is the last Friday anybody with even vague psychic ability will know what is going to be written here:-the 2018 UK Glen of Imaal Terrier Breed Survey and the DNA Archive.

Whilst you’re in the drawer, the cupboard under the board, or the calendar in your ipad have a look if you’ve done sent the details of your Glen for the DNA Archive? It is for the benefit of Glens now and Glens to come. Go on, do your bit towards the future of the breed.
