Manchester (postal) entries close tomorrow-6th. Terrier Day is on Thursday 18th January and Stuart Plane is judging Glen of Imaal Terriers. This is the last show to qualify for Crufts 2018
It’s calmed down a bit before the big Scandinavian Winner Shows and the Eukanuba National Championships in Florida but some Glen of Imaal Terrier people are still out and about. A result that came in too late for last week were successes Thanksgiving Weekend at Holyoke KC with a OHG4 for Keadeen’s Due Diligence with Liberty, a BBE G2 for Liberty’s Confidence and a 4-6 month puppy Group 2 for Liberty’s Serenity. LIberty’s Amity took a 4-6 month puppy group 4 at Springfield Kennel Club. Greater Clark County KC also features the 4-6 month puppy class and out of the 11 in the Terrier Group 6 were Glens! Keadeen’s Luck Be A Lady was 2nd in the Group and BOB. Brother Keadeen’s By Happy Chance was Best Opposite.
It was 2 days of shows in Germany with Billy Tow vom Au Deich taking BOB and Best Veteran on Saturday with My Dear Fellow Brunhilde de CoCo Best Bitch. On Sunday Hadberg Xzibit took Best of Breed with McJakes Aivy Best Bitch.
The “brains” side was having a great weekend. Jeff Dairiki writes “Ciarán refused to tunnel until he had found all three of his rats, then tunneled all on his own. Classy way to earn your RATCHX3, a great time this weekend at Valley Dog Sports’ new digs!” Kelli Whitfield also sends news of her two boys “3 new AKC scent work titles for Winston (handled by Mark’s niece) novice containers, Novice interiors and novice buried hides! Plus 2 advanced Q’s in containers. Also two new titles for Griffin – Novice containers and novice buried hides. This is a new sport for AKC!”
Ladies Kennel Club will see 14 Glen of Imaal Terriers for judge Alison Seall on Sunday December 10th. Glens are third in ring 3 (55 dogs in front) and judging begins at 9.00am. There is a reduced parking charge this year of £6.00. DO REMEMBER that LKA takes place in Halls 17,18, 19, 20 & 6 so don’t head for the west car park
The forthcoming JCF is still causing a lot of comment and debate. The Kennel Club have updated the FAQs again so do take some time to read them. Things that are worth comment on (going from questions that Glen of Imaal Terrier people have asked) is that 2019, 2020 & 2021 are years that judges CAN still officiate under the current rules i.e. they do not need to be members of the academy. It still hasn’t been released what a Breed Education Coordinator will actually do. Breed Clubs have to pay expenses for observers & expenses.
GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIERS
PGD. 1) Kingcottage Boogie On Basil. Delightful temperament, wheaten & in good coat & condition, nice outline, pleasing head, good skull, foreface, muzzle & dentition, well made & proportioned body, good feet & correct quarters. Moved well.
LD. 1) Pajantick Razamataz. Another youngster with pleasing head, broad skull, nice dark eye, good dentition, lighter in bone than previous winner, compact body & good quarters.
OD. 1) Gleann Dynamite Man at Jeonty(Imp Fin). I judged this exhibit in 2015 at 9 months old & awarded him the Res CC. Today I was delighted to give him his crown & BOB. Lovely head piece, strong & correct muzzle, impressive strength in neck, well laid back shoulders, good ribs, well muscled quarters, moved with drive. 2) Boudivella Osca. This young man has matured well, sadly had to take second to first again. Lovely in outline, great body proportions, correct head structure, good muzzle, ears & mouth, well laid shoulders, strong hindquarters, moved with ease. I am sure he will achieve his title. Res CC. 3) Ch Golden Spurs.
PB. 1) Jeonty Jyn A New Hope. Lovely wheaten youngster, correct texture, super shape, feminine expressive eyes, well placed ears, medium neck, good shoulders, ribcage & short loin, well set on tail with excellent quarters. Behaved as a puppy should but when settled moved very well. CC. Sired by the BOB. 2) Romainville Rock N Rolla. 8 months old, very good movement & body shape but longer than first, head has correct proportions, well placed ears, well made quarters, coat of good texture. 3) Romainville Rock On Lizzie
JB. 1) Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage. Blue youngster with pleasing head, good skull, foreface & muzzle, strength in neck, good ribcage & well constructed quarters. On the day moved better than 2nd. 2) Boudivella Tegan. Pleasing in profile, nicely constructed body, good bite & pleasing head proportions, movement sadly let her down on the day.
PGB. 1) Wickholm Daisy Duke O’Hazard. Wheaten that I liked very much, well shaped in profile, pleasing head with good skull, well balanced foreface & muzzle, well made body, rib to loin relationship is good, moved out well.
LB. 1) Romainville Maggie May. Mature lady, wheaten coat of correct texture, quite well made body & muscled quarters, not very happy with movement.
OB. 1) Romainville Uptown Girl. Found it hard to believe this lady is 6 years old. Very good in profile, good skull & foreface, good dentition, well proportioned body, strength in neck, well laid shoulders, good ribcage & bone with excellent feet, moved very well. Unlucky to meet CC winner, Res CC. 2) Wickholm Breaking Dawn. Wheaten bitch not yet two years old so not mature as first. Lovely head of correct proportions, good skull, foreface & muzzle, dark eyes & good dentition, medium neck with good shoulder placement, good quarters & movement. 3) Romainville Whistle Dixie.
Miss M Bailey (Judge)
The weekend before December and for many it’s the start of Christmas Shopping but some Glen of Imaal Terrier people are still out and about. The Glen Association Championship Show was judged by Ann Quinn and it was certainly worth the long trip for the Whites. Best In Show was awarded to Abberann Conan who also took Best Veteran (our oldies are having a ball at the moment) with Best Opposite Sex going to Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore. Best Puppy was “Conan’s boy” Abberann Cosmic Cowboy. The two Reserves were Rollo The Great and Donvaleset Brier, who is also a Veteran. West Midlands Terrier was another veteran BOB in the shape of Johnny Be Good at Romainville. Two HauHau Shows in Finland. The first one saw Highlander’s Dream Casper take BOB with Gleann Una Noonan Best Bitch. The results were reversed on Day 2 with Una Noonan being awarded BOB with Dream Casper Best Opposite.
Just a couple of shows reporting in from America. At Agathon Kennel Club Tipperary American Girl was Best of Breed and Daulton’s Captain Jack of Roseglen was Best Dog. At the second Agathon show American Girl again triumphed, plus OHG4, with Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen getting Best Opposite.
Griffin was adding to his alphabet of titles as he obtained his Excellent Jumpers with Weaves so he needs a lot of room now for a full shout out- Champion Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone BN RE NAP OJP JE CAX BCAT RATO CGCA TKP AJP
Well done all.
