Westminster….and other shows

We got the photo…and the video…and the videos. Let’s do Glen of Imaal Terriers once more at Westminster. Best of Breed was Abberann Lament for Owen Roe with Best Opposite going to Kilkenny’s Across The Universe at Setanta. Select was Ber-D-Mar sweet William O’Shea with AOM Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc. The breed judging is online and so is Niamh’s agility round at around 2hrs 8mins and here at 6hrs 23mins. Niamh, by the way is GCH PACH Niamh of Cnoc CD PCD BN RE MXP10 MXPC MJP7 MJPG PAX2 MFP T2BP JE RATCH CGCA TKI

Also in the States at Lakeland Winter Haven KC Finnabair DD Ain’t It The Life was BOB with Long Lake Pharms Angus Fuller Best Dog. Over in Iowa Kilkenny’s Across The Universe at Setanta followed her Westminster win with a Group 4 at Cyclone County on both the Saturday and Sunday and at Maryland KC Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight was Best of Breed at OHG3.

In Norway at Bo International Finnabair North American Nebulon took BOB on the first day with Rosears Noisy Nancy Best Opposite. Noisy Nancy was again Best Opposite on day 2 but Marfidal Pleasant Surprise took Best of Breed. In Valmiera, Latvia, Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat took BOB both days and then capped it all off with a splendid Group 2!

Congratulations everybody.

It’s today!

Westminster Terrier Day is today, Glen of Imaal Terriers are on at 11.00am so with the 5 hour time difference results and streaming should be available from around 4.00pm UK time.

Streaming is available from quite a few sources but the most reliable if you are this side of the pond is probably the AKC.tv channel on You Tube and there are also links on Westminster website. The Breed results can be found here so have a great show anybody participating at Westminster or just visiting and remember we need pictures! Whilst waiting for the Glen results take a look at this. Yes, it’s the Hound Group but the Standard Long taking Group 1 is co-owned by Theresa Nesbitt, the American arm of Abberann so congratulations to her.

Westminster put the catalogue online so below are the Glens you’ll be seeing. Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend is not competing and neither is Gleann Damn Daisy

Without a doubt….

…this week’s round up has to start with the BRAINS side of Glen of Imaal Terriers. Last week the Glen agility finalist at Westminster was given a shout and now the results are in. Laura Trainor writes:-

Q IN STANDARD AT WESTMINSTER FOR NIAMH!
Double Q for the day!
That is her 100th lifetime Master Standard Q!

What an achievement so if anybody ever asks you if Glens can do Agility the answer is Oh, Yes!!!! They also can do Rally as Monique reports:- Ginny qualified for the 3rd time, placed first, and earned a title in the AKC Rally Novice class this weekend in Rye Brook, New York.  She then ran in the Rally Intermediate class and came in first place with a score of 99 out of 100.

We were also exhibiting as well. In Finland Gleann Eager Edgar was BOB at Kauhava Group Show and in Tallin, Estonia, Finnabair Broc Rua Arda of Gleann was Best of Breed with Gleann Kooky Kanye Best Opposite. The day after, Tallin Winter Cup saw Broc Rua in at Best Bitch with Rosears Master of the House Best of Breed. In the UK West Midlands Terrier had Jeonty Letty Be Magic as BOB and at Sporting Terrier of Yorkshire Amhard Off the Cuff was the man

 

Great going everybody and for the Brains Brigade….just wow!!

 

 

Crufts entries released

The Kennel Club have released the entry figures for Crufts 2019. Across the disciplines a total of 20,565 dogs are entered, just a few hundred down on last year. In all honesty the Glen of Imaal Terrier entry at just 20 (8 dogs and 12 bitches) is not good but what was expected? With the cost of entries, the stress of the show and getting there for a 9.00am start combining with a judge that hasn’t shown an awful lot of affinity for the breed previously it isn’t too big a surprise.

Getting ready for Westminster

Westminster Kennel Club is the 11th/12th February and is usually broadcast online. Glen of Imaal Terriers are in more than the breed exhibition ring though as Laura Trainor writes:-

“The Westminster Agility competition will be live streamed on the Westminster website on Sat Feb 9th.  Niamh will be competing in the 8″ Preferred class.  In the past they have only videoed one ring – Jumpers With Weaves.  Niamh’s JWW run will be sometime in the 10 – 11 AM New York time range.”

The Glen breed competition will be on Tues Feb 12th in Ring 3 at 11 AM.  This will also be live streamed on the website.
