All done until the days get longer.

That’s it then, time for the annual lie down until the days get a bit longer. There’s a list of Open Shows to look forward to, the KC Journal and the Irish Canine Press to look at, an eye testing clinic to book in for and an AGM to think about. If you haven’t entered for Crufts you still have until the 22nd and if you want to get ahead of the game National Terrier closes on February 22nd.

Remember us when you’re at Westminster or Manchester so hopefully they’ll be a big catch up session round about February 19th.

Beginning the Year with “of the Year”

Happy New Year to anybody and everybody connected in any way with Glen of Imaal Terriers.

The beginning of a new year means the announcements of the various Glens of the Year from the one before. Even though it is only January 2nd some have already declared. In the UK the No.1 was Golden Spurs with Top Puppy being shared between Boudivella Tegan & Jeonty Jyn A New Hope. Finland saw Highlander’s Dream Casper be awarded Glen of The Year with Gleann Indico Indy Top Puppy.

The USA “sort of” declares two. As the country is so big and there are so many (often small to European eyes) shows Top Dogs are declared from All Breed and Breed standings:-one deals with Group placings, Group wins and Best In Shows and the other deals with wins against their own breed. Remarkably the one and two in both rankings are the same, just places changed. Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend is Top Glen in All Breed and number 2 in Breed standings and Kilkenny’s Across The Universe To Setanta is number one Breed Glen and number 2 All Breed.

Congratulations everybody and if other countries would like to send their top results they can be included with welcome
