Applause, applause, applause

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.
