For the first time in ages no Glen of Imaal Terrier show news from America but we’re still out and about at the shows this side of the pond.
Back to back shows in Estonia & Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat took Best of Breed both days and a Group 4. Best of Breed at Turku was Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo whilst at Joensuu Rosears Master of the House took home the BOB rosette. On the home front Kingcottage Boogie on Basil was at the Vale of Glamorgan and was rewarded with the Best of Breed rosette
The US news comes from the “brains” side of the family as Ginny qualified first time in the Introduction To Quarry class and Jeff Dairiki reports that The Wicklow Trio took first place at the first ever Barn Hunt Academy tag team barn hunt. They found nine rats in under three and a half minutes
Well done all!
…is Montgomery Terrier Show but more importantly the Glen of Imaal Terrier Club of America Speciality Show!
Glen of Imaal Terrier people keep on going right throughout the summer…that may or may not arrive in the UK.
Haapavesi Group Show was a triumph for Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard took Best of Breed and Group 4-not a usual occurrence in Europe. Best Opposite Sex was Pearytail Cruella de Gleann which earned her her Finnish Championship. Pearytail Candy McCoy added Lithuanian Champion to her name when she was BOB there. Valkeakoski All Breed Show saw Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat take BOB, and earn his first CAC from his first time in the Junior class. Over in Ireland Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne took Best of Breed at Dun Laoghaire.
In America at Beaver County KC Tipperary American Girl was Best of Breed and at Columbian County KC Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore was Best of Breed. Fabulous news indeed of Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas who is now in the top 30 IN THE COUNTRY of the AKC Owner Handler Series. News That there now is a Canadian Champion Glen and that honour of the first made up goes to Abberann Phelan.
The “brains” department is well represented by Ginny who earned her RATO (Open Barn Hunt) title and was so fast she came in first.
Finally a reminder of the Dutch Glen Games on the 16th & 17th September. If anybody fancies a weekend away you’ll be very, very welcome!

Monique Anthony sends “Ginny had a fun day at the USCSS (United States Canine Scent Sports) scentwork trial in Westford, MA. She qualified in all 4 of her classes (Novice Interior & Vehicle, and Intermediate Exterior & Container) and earned a 3rd place in Containers.
The Game Fair was down at Hatfield House, Hertford and Glen of Imaal Terriers were there in the Discover Dogs area. Had an email that said “nice to see the Glens there” and just learnt (thanks Nicki) it was the Hanningtons manning the fort as well as the Atkins. Just as important as any dog show.
The Finnish Glen Speciality mentioned last week was far more than just a one day dog show as there was a weekend Glen happening which also included weight pulling, lure coursing, lots of competitions for children etc.
Well done indeed everybody!!
Not too much catching up this week but lots of excitement in two Glen of Imaal Terrier households with two new Champions being made up.

Reserves were Boudivella Oscar and Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm with Boudivella Tegan Best Puppy.
Last weekend Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas at Coos Bay KC took a Group 3 and OH Group 3 and Sunday a Group 4 and OH Group 1. Terrier Association of Oregon was a BOB for Keadeen Second Star To The Right with Sir Emmet Best Dog.
