It’s back!!!

Once in a galaxy far, far away a Green Book was born. For many people it was their first introduction to anything written about the Glen of Imaal Terrier. Origin & History, Breed Standard, trimming, choosing a Glen, it was all there and it was very successful. It was freely available to anybody who wanted it because the whole idea was to get the genuine and authentic word out. It was a first in the breed and it was genuinely admired.

Times change though & so do ideas and wants. Everybody became obsessed with the internet & who wanted to read anything on paper? The Green Book acknowledged it was a relic of a time and disappeared into memory.

Retro is again popular though & some Glen folk have long memories. Why don’t you…… So we listened and it’s back. It’s get updated pages, it’s got health, it’s got appeal once more. Are you having a litter & need it for puppy packs? Do you want to send it to people who enquire about Glens? It’s here & it’s available for you. Just let us know.

We love that you are loving the return of a true icon. As it says above it is available  free of charge, it’s being looked on as a service to the breed just like it used to be, and it is for anybody interested in Glens. For folk who have already asked they will be coming out to you after the Bank Holiday weekend. Once you’ve got it a donation wouldn’ be refused if you think it worth it. If you decide you don’t want it offer it to your local library as they like books and leaflets that could be useful

EFG Open Show critique

Best in Show Ch Golden Spurs

Reserve Best in Show Ch Romainville Billy Whizz

Best Opposite Sex Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage

Best Dog Ch Golden Spurs

Reserve Best Dog Ch Romainville Billy Whizz

Best Bitch Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage

Reserve Bitch & Best Veteran Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm

Best Puppy Jeonty Glynis Making Magic for Zippor

I was honoured to judge this breed club show, a great opportunity for me to handle a good number of this relatively rare breed, so a learning curve, as is every judging appointment. Type is varied and sometimes compromises had to be made, some I liked were carrying too much weight which did not help toplines or movement.  The forehand assembly of the breed is a special feature and poses some challenges to get well formed front, with sufficient upper arm and good front action.

Many thanks to my stewards Harold Gary and Miss Tobijnski

PGD (1, 0)

1 Samuel Jeonty Yippee Kiaye 3 years blue dog, very typical in body proportions and outline with sight rise to the loin. Strong head and good jaw and dentition.  Coat a little soft.  Good bone. Needs a little more chest.  Ears a touch heavy.  Sound moving, a little close in front.

LD (2, 1)

1 Tobijanski Romainville Becks Blue for Zippor 2 years blue brindle, excellent proportions, topline and tailset. I’d prefer a little more bone for his size.  Excellent head, eye and dentition.  I would prefer more rear angulation and a little more width in front.

OD (6, 2) Best class of the day for depth of quality and the first 2 very close.

1 Alstead Ch Golden Spurs 4 years I loved his type, proportions, coat and topline.  Scored in quarters and rear movement here.  Lovely head and eye and strongly boned.  Full of type.  I might like a little more upper arm but he pleased me a lot. BIS

2 George Ch Romainville Billy Whizz 5 years he has a very correct head shape with slight taper to the muzzle. Good coat and strong bone.  Correct rise to topline.  I’d prefer a little more angulation to his quarters. BD &RBIS

3 Hannington Boudivella Osca 3 years shorter bodied dog with good coat. Good rear.  His front action could be better.

VD (2, 1)

1 Garner Ch Johnny Be Good at Romainville almost 12 years and enjoying his day. Head of good proportions and has a good coat.  Topline a little slack now and he is a little loose on the move.  Excellent temperament.

PB (4, 3)

1 Tobijanski Jeonty Glynis Making Magic for Zippor 9 months good length to height proportions and good ribcage which needs to drop a little more. Quality feminine head and good eye pigment.  Coat just coming through.  Sound, typical mover.  She needs a little more confidence.  I’d prefer a touch more bone and hope this might develop. BPIS

JB (2, 1)

1 Rogers Jeonty Jyn a New Hope 15 months, she is a very good mover and has good body length with good coat and good rise over the loin. Her skull could be flatter.  Good bone.  Eyes could be a shade darker.

PGB (3, 1)

1 Hannington Boudivella Tegan 2 years old, won on coat and front action here. Could be a little stronger in foreface and a touch more length to her but she carried herself well.  Sound at both ends.

2 George Romainville Izzy Wizzy 2 years a real teenager in the body and dipping in her back on the day. A lovely head and eye and strong bone.  Her front action is disappointing.  Coat needs to harden up.

LB (3, 1)

1 Alstead Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage 2 years blue brindle bitch of excellent type with good body length which could have more rise to the loin. Very good head, ears, coat and movement. BB &BOS

2 Rogers Jeonty Minnie Meme 3 years a little shorter in body not helped by carrying maximum weight. Good bone and sound and typical on the move.

OB (3, 0)

1 George Romainville Maggie May 3 years scored in type and topline here. Could be better in tail carriage but I liked her substance and topline and movement. In the challenge her rear action was not so steady.

2 Rogers Ch Jeonty Meme Fern 5 years same type but carrying too much weight and this shows in her topline. Good chest with slight bow.

3 Sag Ch Wickholm Breaking Dawn 2 years looked a teenager and needs to drop in chest and develop in body. Very good head and eye and ears.  Topline a little flat.  Very good mover. Needs more chest and front legs could be more bow.

VB (4, 2) 2 excellent bitches.

1 Sage Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm 10 years, lovely type, carrying maximum weight which detracts from her topline. Excellent chest.  A very good mover at both ends.  Scored in front action and ears. RBB & BV

2 Samuel Jeonty Red Clover 12 years I loved the type and body shape of this bitch, shown in hard condition and with well-developed topline. Just shows her age a little in her front action.  Good head.  Ears not as neat as winner.

A quieter week…

…but after the hectic run of recent months even the most devoted Glen of Imaal Terrier owner needs a bit of time off.

Scottish Kennel Club is a long run for everybody, even the nearest Scottish exhibitor is 4 hours away, so everybody who goes deserves applause. Abberann Conan, the furthest travelled, once again took Best Veteran and Best of Breed with Reserve Dog going to Boudivella Osca. Bitch CC was Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage and Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne in Reserve. Best Puppy was Jeonty Dreams a Dream with Karensbrae.

Over in Scandinavia Rosears Master of the House had a great weekend with BOB at Hamina and Helsinki. Rosears Nugget of Gold was BOS at Hamina and Pearytail Cherry Bomb at Helsinki. Glean Ho Ho Hogan had an even better weekend in many ways with a Gp3 at Lahti Group Show.

love the names of some Kennel Clubs in the States and this week has a couple of beauties. Vacationland KC was a OHG4 placement for Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney and at Magic Valley KC Kilkenny’s Middleton Irish Spirit was BOB at their two shows. And then took Best of Breed and OHG4 at Blennerhassett KC

Congratulations all you people who are very shy this week in the photographic department.
