Just keep on showing.

Many Glen of Imaal Terrier people who were in Amsterdam last weekend were glad to get home for a rest. Others just kept on going. It was the Baltic Weekend in Estonia. Friday was the Harjuma Group Show. Best of Breed was Pearytail Candy McCoy who was shortlisted in the Group. Pearytail Donald Dump was Best Opposite and Pearytail took BIS 2 (Breeders). Saturday was the Baltic Winners with (for Estonia) a big entry of 15. BOB to Gleann Dynamite Mike and Gleann Gildea with Nelli Best Bitch. Sunday was the Terrier Specialty with the Pearytail pair taking the top awards again. Kouvola (Finland) saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard get the nod for Best of Breed with Astoreen Best Opposite.

Welsh Kennel Club and it was Abberann Cosmic Cowboy for Best of Breed with Romainville Whistle Dixie Best Bitch. The two Reserves were Abberann Conan and Romainville Maggie May, so a double double. Jeonty Dreams A Dream of Karensbrae kept the breed flag ably flying with a 1st in the Junior Stakes. The Irish Circuit has begun with the All Terrier and Clonmel. Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage was Best of Breed at both.

In Canada Abberann Derbla has been keeping the breed flag flying with Gp3 at both Kilbride & District & St Catharines & District and Gp2 & 4 at Grey-Bruce Kennel Club (another great name). In America Nisqually KC in Washington State saw Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right take Best of Breed both days plus Gp3. Keadeen’s Boy Blue for Bluesette was Best Opposite both days and he triumphed in the Owner Handler Groups with an OH3 and OH4. Glendalough Daithi of Abberann was Best of Breed at the Upper Potomac Valley KC and Laurel Highlands Kennel Association. At Potomac Abberann Blue Sky of Glendalough took Puppy Group 1. South Adirondach Dog Club had Kilkenny’s Best of My Love take home the BOB award.

Congratulations all.

Leeds critique

GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIER (LEEDS 18)

I was rather worried that I might not be able to award the CCs when, in advance of the show, I saw the small number of dogs entered – only 9. In the event I needn’t have worried. The quality of the top winners was very good indeed.

OD (2)

1. Alstead’s Ch Golden Spurs, though he could be better in eye colour, he scored very much in head and expression over 2 and was more typey in a number of ways. Moved better behind than in front. Very good coat with the correct textures of both top coat and undercoat. Enough bone and correct set-on and carriage of tail. Plenty of body substance and well muscled. DCC.

2.Hannington’s Boudivella Oscar, Good in skull but not quite the typical head and expression of 1. Moved out well behind, better there than in front, and was correct in typical topline. Needs a bit more coat to complete the picture. RDCC

JB (2)

1. Forbes’ Jeonty Dreams a Dream with Karensbrae, very typical in outline and moved around the ring very smartly. Moved well behind and in front as well, and had correct ears. Good width of skull and enough strength of foreface, Coat could be better. OK for size and good bone and correct body proportions. Well muscled behind. A very promising youngster which went on to win the RBCC

2. Tobijanski and Tobijanski’s Jeonty Glynis Making Magic for Zippor. Not showing to good advantage and seemed a bit scared of the wind and weather, needing more ring confidence. Good body and enough bone. Could move better but this was perhaps because she was just not happy in this ring and in this weather.

LB

A difficult class. (3)

1. Hannington’s Boudivella Tegan, scored in head type body shape and coat over the others but was not good in forequarters or front movement. Moved well enough behind however with enthusiasm. OK in spring of rib and had plenty of bone.

2 James& O’brien’s Amhard Jessie Jay, good in topline but quite long in body as compared to height, not so good in eye and expression as winner. Moved better behind than 3 and was of better size also.

3. Quarrie’s Rhumsaamist Glen Elfin at Quaywest.

OB (2)

1. Alstead’s Ch Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage, quite a smart bitch when she decides to show herself off to best advantage. Better for size than 2, and better in front as well. Pleasing in head and expression, Better eye than 2. Typical topline, which is where I think she scored over the dog for BOB. Plenty of substance but at the same time not too big. I thought that she had much type and quality and was pleased to award her BCC and BOB.

2. Quarrie’s Rhumsaamist Glen Maye at Quaywest, good coat for texture and quantity. Good head properties and correct width of skull. Moved OK behind. Biggish and rather over the desired 14 inch maximum

World Show 2018 results…but pictures Wednesday

Planes and boats and trains bought Glen of Imaal Terrier folk to Amsterdam. There are nowhere near as many of us than in some breeds but the flag was flown proudly on all three days, nobody got an easy title. First up was the Benelux Show with 27 present. Best of Breed(CACIB & 2xCAC) was Gleann Damn Daisy with BOS (CACIB & 2x CAC) to High lander’s Dream Casper. The two Reserves-and CACs- were awarded to Gleann Una Noonan and Gleann Cotton Cody. Best Junior was awarded to Madra Athas Cayleigh Chead Gera.

The biggie of the weekend was obviously the World Show itself and there were 40 Glens entered. This time the honours went to the dog with Highlanders Dream Casper getting the nod for BOB-plus the CACIB and CACs-with Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Best Bitch and CACIBs etc. The two Reserves were Gleann Bigwig and Una Noonan. My Dear Fellow Cordula The Angel was Best Junior, Billy Tow Vom Au Deighton Best Veteran and Finnabair Broc Ria Arda of Gleann Best Puppy.

Group 3 specialties were the last day of showing for Terriers. Highlanders Dream Casper made it a double with Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne Best Bitch. The two Reserve CACs were awarded to Abberann Cosmic Cowboy and Daisy. Broc Ria was again Best Puppy and Gleann Indico Indy Best Junior.

A long list of names supported by a long list of people from different countries. Whelped in one country but owned in another was the story right through again and again. If whelped in the country of ownership often parents came from a different one. Glen of Imaal Terriers, becoming truly international….as the Finnish, Swedish, Danish, Irish, English, Dutch, German and American ringside indicated.

Great weekend and congratulations to everybody who was there

Photographs. Over the weekend we were asked if, like Crufts, it would be possible to have a record of every dog present on here? Many put photos galore on social media but not everybody is “friends” with everybody else and some just won’t do it but they will do the blog. Yep, we’ll do it but it will be Wednesday as we don’t get home until very late tonight and they have to be sorted, so that’s Wednesday’s blog sorted then!

Please follow the link below and read thoroughly.

The strapline of this blog is keeping Glen of Imaal Terrier owners up to date so any and every Glen owner who intends to breed a litter in the future needs to read this document fully. It would also be an idea to bookmark it

The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) 2018. Guidance notes for conditions for breeding dogs comes into force October 1 2018.

Please don’t think that this doesn’t concern you. According to that breeding a single puppy and selling it could constitute a business. If your bitch has had a caesarean probably forget about another litter. The stud fee puppy (instead of a fee) cannot be sold on anymore because it wasn’t bred on your premises. No Glen person would seriously contemplate having a litter unless their bitch/dog had been CRD3 tested but now it will have to be done. Always closely line bred? Forget it now

It may say “Guidance” but think what others there have been over the past few years:- docking ban (it happened). Breeder’s licence (it happened). Within the past few days it has been announced that after the World Show no more dog shows will be allowed in Amsterdam because of “Welfare”. Luxembourg has also cancelled it’s biggest show this year. Remember as well that HMRC have been looking at dog breeding to such a degree that there is now the “injury lawyers for us” style advert about it.

A decent breakdown of it can be read here.
