Crufts closes on Monday

Crufts entries close on Monday. Terrier day is Saturday March 9th and Glen of Imaal terriers will be judged by Jeff Horswell. The breed is first in (9.00am) ring 6, hall1. Remember to order a car park pass at eleven pounds as it is sixteen if paid on the day.

If you can’t get on the Saturday Glen of Imaal Terriers are there all four days in Discover Dogs. Anne Hardy is organising so if you are available to help out in the booth do drop her an email to see if any more help is needed.

Westminster entry

Westminster Dog Show has announced the entry for this year’s show. It’s different to Crufts insofar as they have a limit on the number of dogs allowed to attend so as soon as 2,800 is reached it’s no more. Nine Glen of Imaal Terriers will be there this year and Terrier Day is Tuesday February 12th. Keep an eye out because there is usually filming of each breed which is broadcast the day after.

It’s taken 31 years…..

….but it’s finally happened

Way back in 1985 Malsville Man Alone was born and he was the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to obtain a Kennel Club Junior Warrant, which was awarded in 1987. Most people in Glens now don’t even remember Tom and think a JW impossible to achieve in the breed. THEY ARE WRONG because 31 years later we hear that his 6 times great granddaughter has gone and done it again!

Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae from all the way up in Inverness, so huge travelling involved, is now the second proud Glen to have those elusive initials after her name. So many, many congratulations!!!!

Overwhelming!

The email from Jeff Dairiki just has to be shared in its entirety…and do take note of the bold!

At the Friday All Terrier Club of Western Washington Specialty in Puyallup, WA, under judge Lee Herr:

Stella, Keadeen’s Second Start to the Right, BOB

Mac, Daulton’s Breithla Feirun Irish Mac, BOW, and on to Best Bred by Exhibitor (Ann Marie Pember, handling) in specialty show.

Emmet, Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas, BOS, BOBOH, OHG3

Saturday, at the Gig Harbor KC show, under judge Darren Bowey:

Mac, WD

Ciarán, BOS, BOBOH and on to NOHS Best In Show! Group judge was Lloyd Constantine-Amodei, BIS judge David W Haddock

Also, in the 4-6 month puppy show, Ethan, Keadeen’s Beyond the Pale, went on to Best Puppy in Show!

Sunday, at the Tacoma KC show under judge Linda Wells:

Ciarán, BOB, BOBOH and NOHS Group 1

Mac, WD

Stella, BOS

Emmet, SEL

Eili, SEL

Yes you read it right. An Owner Handler Best In Show, a Best Puppy In Show and a Bred By Exhibitor Best In Show as well as an OHG3. This must be the best set of results from a cluster EVER for Glen of Imaal Terriers!

Over in Virginia Northern Neck KC (how did it get the name?) saw Abberann Owen Roe take Best of Breed with Abberann Derbla Best Bitch at both of their shows. Greater Fredericksburg held two shows with Derbla taking BOB at one with Ber-D-Mar Sweet William Best Opposite. At the second it was Owen Roe again BOB (with G4) and Derbla Best Opposite. Clearwater KC had Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock taking the Glen of Imaal honours.

Finland has started their show year and at Kajaani International Gleann Una Noonan was Best of Breed with Gleann Indico Indy Best Dog.

What an incredible weekend indeed.

Manchester entry

Manchester have released the entry figures for their show. Terrier Day is January 18th and there will be 10 Glen of Imaal Terriers for judge Patsy Hollings. Glens are in the Sandylands Hall (Ring 1) and will not be judged before 11.00am. As there are 87 dogs-3 breeds-to be judged before us it will probably be quite a bit later.

Starting 2019 with THREE Group placements!

Before we celebrate the first 2019 Glen of Imaal Terrier achievements though the last of 2018 has to be honoured, particularly as it is from the Brains Department

Monique writes “Ginny qualified for the third time and earned her title in the Excellent Jumpers Preferred class at an AKC Agility trial on Sunday(30th)”

Thought the results were all going to be American this week, as they have the better January weather, but Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae in Scotland flew the flag with a Group 3 at Bon Accord. The place many would like to be is Palm Springs and Keadeen Second Star To The Right obviously loved it as she was BOB three days out of the four with Keadeen’s Luck Be A Lady Best of Breed on the last one. Columbiana KC saw Finnabair You Should Be So Lucky take Best of Breed and it was repeated at both Rubber City shows. Tipperary Uptown Girl and Kilkenny’s Granite Aine of Cloddagh were the Best Opposites. The two Merrimack Valley Kennel Club shows saw double Group 2 placements for Abberann Lament for Owen Roe with Abberann Derbla Best Bitch.

Congratulations all.
