Keeping up

Glen of Imaal Terrier people keep on going right throughout the summer…that may or may not arrive in the UK.

Haapavesi Group Show was a triumph for Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard took Best of Breed and Group 4-not a usual occurrence in Europe. Best Opposite Sex was Pearytail Cruella de Gleann which earned her her Finnish Championship. Pearytail Candy McCoy added  Lithuanian Champion to her name when she was BOB there. Valkeakoski All Breed Show saw Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat take BOB, and earn his first CAC from his first time in the Junior class. Over in Ireland Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne took Best of Breed at Dun Laoghaire.

In America at Beaver County KC Tipperary American Girl was Best of Breed and at Columbian County KC Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore was Best of Breed. Fabulous news indeed of Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas who is now in the top 30 IN THE COUNTRY of the AKC Owner Handler Series. News That there now is a Canadian Champion Glen and that honour of the first made up goes to Abberann Phelan.

The “brains” department is well represented by Ginny who earned her RATO (Open Barn Hunt) title and was so fast she came in first.

Finally a reminder of the Dutch Glen Games on the 16th & 17th September. If anybody fancies a weekend away you’ll be very, very welcome!

Glen of Imaal Terrier memories on ebay. Well to be honest for some they will be a memory but for others ancient history when they notice the dates!

Twice in a week or so

This isn’t about Glen of Imaal Terriers but just over a week ago two Glen folk were having a conversation. On Monday this dropped into the inbox. If two Glen folk can talk about a subject, somebody else basically writes a piece on it and another Glen person forwards it as “maybe of interest for the blog” possibly you should read it and make your own decision.
