It’s Friday so it’s unsubtle hint time.

The Glen of Imaal Terrier DNA archive has been running a while, yes of course you’re going to send along DNA, but have you done it yet? And of course we’re going to fill in the 2018 Glen Breed Survey but where have I put it?

So to aid memory. The online Survey can be found here. The following has to be written now so go and put the kettle on or something. No personal data in any form is harvested via the survey unless you choose to enter it yourself; neither isp, country or server used is recorded.

.There has been a slight change with the DNA archive but nothing serious. Alison Seall writes her final email as DNA archivist.:-

The www.glenarchive.com “package” was due to expire in August…but thanks to a Glen owner in the US & the EFG the dedicated site will continue

The website has been ‘re-created’ by Jeff Dairiki and a new section added … ‘Spread the word’ … 😊 … www.glenarchive.com/spread-the-word/

The Glen DNA Archive flyer can be distributed at breed events and shows … and breeders can include it in their Puppy Packs

Breed clubs and breeders are encouraged to have a link to the Glen DNA Archive on their websites

Breed clubs are encouraged to reserve a small section in their newsletters for a brief introduction to the archive – on the ‘Spread the word’ page

Thank you to all the Glen owners from around the world who have supported the archive … your submissions are greatly appreciated.

Hopefully, many more owners will request a swab kit from the AHT and contribute to this invaluable resource!

Best wishes,

 

Alison Seall​ (​Glen DNA Archive Coordinator 2013 – 2018)​
