Last week Crufts took precedence so let’s make it St Patrick’s Day this week as, after all, Glen of Imaal Terriers are an Irish Breed. Best of Breed in Dublin was Abberann Cosmic Cowboy. In Finland at Jamijarvi Group Show BOB was Gleann Indico Indy and BOS was awarded to Madra Athas Ceinlys Chead Chra. In Estonia at Narva and Riga the results were the same with Rosears Master of the House taking Best of Breed both days over Rosears Kate The Duchess who is now an International Champion. Two shows in the weekend in Germany with My Dear Fellow Cordula The Angel taking the big rosette over Rosears Lionheart at one and McJakes Aivy getting the nod at the other with Lionheart once again Best Opposite. In the Netherlands Madra Áthas Caoilainn Chéad Ghra took Best of Breed at the International Dogshow KV Rijnland, Hazerswoude
Kate Flack send news from the US North West: “The 2 day Seattle KC show in the Pacific Northwest was smaller than in past years, held inside on a warm & beautiful spring weekend, but nonetheless, Glens made a good entry with the newest 6 – 9 month puppies showing.

Jeonty Golden Memo went east to a cluster in Kentucky and annexed Best of Breed at Evansville and two of the Mid Kentucky Kennel Club shows with Abberann Lament for Owner Roe being awarded Best Dog. At the third Owen Roe was Best of Breed with Kilkenny’s Middleton of Irish Spirit Best Opposite.
Great going everybody!
On behalf of all Glen of Imaal Terriers, to all Glen of Imaal Terrier owners, a certain Happy St Patrick’s Day wish
It is no longer possible to have the DNA test for CRD3 in Glen of Imaal Terriers at Bochum University. Biofocus (also in Germany) have taken it over.
The form for submission is on http://www.biofocus.de/media/files/downloads/125_submission-form-v3-20180301.pdf
Information on how to take a swab http://www.biofocus.de/media/files/downloads/130_buccal-swab-collection-biofocus.pdf and 1 ml EDTA-Blood is sufficient
The price, if a member of a Glen breed club is 40,00 Euro plus 19% VAT, Non-members will have to pay 45,00 Euro plus VAT.
National Terrier have extended their closing date until tomorrow (16th March). The show is on April 7th at Stafford Showground and Mr P Martin will be officiating for Glen of Imaal Terriers. This year every breed has a new class, Special Beginner, which is for any owner/handler/exhibit that has not won a CC or Reserve CC.
There was a lot of other activity beside the breed ring at Crufts. Up in Discover Dogs did you see Flynn, Alfie, Digby, Dylan, Muttley, Poppy, Misty & Finn? They all helped fly the flag for Glen of Imaal Terriers in hectic Hall 3. Were you at the Vulnerable Breeds Final and saw Brogan (Top Glen last year) most ably strutting his stuff?
Were you at home watching it via the television and wish for more Glen coverage? If you were in the Midlands you’d have seen Basil doing us all remarkably well on BBC Birmingham. Even the Crufts own ad hoc shots of the show managed to feature a Glen as Dylan studied the camera and a passing shot of Muttley waiting for customers on Discover Dogs. If anything has been missed do let us know!
