And for the final time…..

…a shout out reminder is given about the 2018 (UK resident) Glen of Imaal Terrier Breed Survey that finishes December 31st. The year has whizzed by so fast so have you filled it in yet? It doesn’t matter whether you have a pet, a show dog or a rescue. If you have a Glen we’d like you to take a look and fill it in. It won’t take long and no personal information is taken unless you wish to leave it.

The Survey may be finishing in a couple of days (the intention is for the results to be on the breed websites-EFG and Association– by late winter/early spring) but the DNA Archive isn’t so

PLEASE SUPPORT THE GLEN DNA ARCHIVE

The International Glen DNA Archive provides a facility to store Glen DNA, along with supporting pedigree and health information, for use in future health research projects.

​All you need to do to support this important health initiative, is send off five buccal (cheek) swabs from your Glen, plus a copy of your Glen’s pedigree and the submission form, to the Animal Health Trust.

To request a swab kit (one kit per Glen), please email the Animal Heath Trust: canine.genetics@aht.org.uk

Subject: Swab kit request
Name Please provide your title and first & last names
Address Please provide your full postal address including post / zip code & country
Number of kits Please indicate the number of swab kits you require (one kit per Glen)

Contributions to the DNA Archive are welcome from non-UK resident Glens, as well as those living in the UK … from Glens of all ages and health status.

For more information, please visit the dedicated Glen Archive website: www.glenarchive.com

Thank you!

Over to you

Linda Samuels (EFG newsletter editor) would like to remind folk that the newsletter NEEDS YOU for it to be a success and as it’s getting towards that time of the year……..any anecdotes, stories, tales, information about Glen of Imaal Terriers would be very welcome!

Just a little hiatus

Summer, so rather than the lay down in the darkened room in the winter for ever, we’re disappearing into the garden for a week. We’ll be up and running (well staggering around) again July 30th.

Where can you go for a nice day out?

A couple of weeks ago suggestions were asked for regarding a good day out in the summer without huge expense, no stress and fun for the family. Things are coming in so you send ’em, we’ll bring them to folk’s attention.

Underwood Festival at Friezeland Recreation Ground, Church Lane, Underwood NG16 5SF

Saturday 7th July 1pm Live music until 8pm.

Classic cars, stalls, games, Junior football, fun dog show (there is shade) and loads of other things

Underwood Festival last year

 

See you sometime next week

Let’s hear it for December 25th and CHRISTMAS. Wherever you are have an absolutely great one. Glen of Imaal Terrier people around the world are invited to join with Conor and raise a glass around one o’clock in the afternoon. Allowing for various time zones that’ll hopefully mean that even if you are on your own you will know somebody somewhere is thinking of you
