…..the stars of Discover Dogs. Glen of Imaal Terriers may have performed in the exhibition ring on Saturday but other Glens were there all four days to be loved, petted, photographed, admired and talked to. Dodi, May, Fern, Basil, Alfie, Mutley, Kaos, Poppy, Misty & Flynn you (and your people) did us proud. Thank you.
There was also a Glen “somewhere else”. Caitlin Forbes has always been an enthusiastic YKC supporter and this was her final year. She took Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae into the YKC 18-24 Terrier & Hound where they came 3rd and 4th in YKC Terrier Stakes. The breed also had a presence in the absolute final with Jen Tobijanski who had come first in the Terrier Stakes. She was handling her own champion Sealyham but she shares her home with two Glens.
The “seen on the television” glimpses are Caitlin, Mutley on Friday & Basil on Saturday. Basil made the entire opening sequence, nice going boy for sitting still so long. If there are any more let us know so they can have a shout out.
Caitlin actually came third in the YKC handling and fourth in the YKC Stakes – both great achievements. Glens are perhaps not the first choice for Handling, whilst the quality in the Stakes class was very high, with a good proportion of the dogs already being champions.
