3rd Party Public Liability Insurance

Have you got it? If your Glen of Imaal Terrier, cat, ferret, rabbit gets out on the road and causes an accident are you covered by insurance. What if any of the above inadvertently scratch somebody and they decide to sue you….are you ready? Quite a few Glen folk in the UK twitch when the name of Dog’s Trust comes up due to their habit of shipping in from Ireland and telling us that our help is not needed but grit the teeth and have a look at their membership offer.

“3rd party public liability insurance for your dog – up to £1,000,000 per claim if your dog causes damage or injury to another person, their property or pets” and notice that the dog doesn’t have to be named. It’s only £12.50 a year (£25 if under 60) so well worth doing the way everything is getting so litigatious

….and so it begins…in more ways than one

If anybody wants to shout at the television that well known dog lover Jeremy Vine is discussing “should Crufts crack down on flat faced dogs?”. 9.15am on Channel 5 or catch up later in the day on My5.

This blog is public service broadcasting for Glen of Imaal Terrier people. Crufts is next week and everybody used to have a new outfit so to that end a Facebook public group is being shared for any interested ladies. “Dog Show Jackets Sales and Swapsies” is evidently worth looking at.

Short but quite sweet!

Slightly Different Angle now

Back on February 6th a “Surviving Dog Shows” post was on here. Today we’re running a slightly different approach on it all that obviously appeals as three separate folk sent it for sharing:-

“With some people you just don’t have a chance…
If you talk about dogs, you’re a know-it-all; if you don’t, you’re a snob…
If you don’t stop to chat at a show, success has gone to your head; if you do, you’re a show off…
If your dogs are at all the shows, you’re not letting others have a chance; if your dogs aren’t at all the shows, you’re afraid of the competition…
If your dog wins, you know the judges; if they don’t win, you know nothing about breeding…
If you win and thank the judge, you’re playing politics; if you win and don’t thank the judge, you’re rude…
If you lose and congratulate the winner, you’re a hypocrite; if you lose and don’t congratulate the winner, you’re a poor sport…
If you’ve been breeding for less than 20 years, you’re a novice; if you’ve been breeding for more than 20 years, you should step down and let the newcomers have a chance…
If you use your own stud, you’re kennel blind; if you go outside for stud services, you don’t think much of your own breeding…
If you sell most of your puppies, they aren’t good enough to keep; if you keep them, you can’t find buyers….”
