A quieter week…

…but after the hectic run of recent months even the most devoted Glen of Imaal Terrier owner needs a bit of time off.

Scottish Kennel Club is a long run for everybody, even the nearest Scottish exhibitor is 4 hours away, so everybody who goes deserves applause. Abberann Conan, the furthest travelled, once again took Best Veteran and Best of Breed with Reserve Dog going to Boudivella Osca. Bitch CC was Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage and Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne in Reserve. Best Puppy was Jeonty Dreams a Dream with Karensbrae.

Over in Scandinavia Rosears Master of the House had a great weekend with BOB at Hamina and Helsinki. Rosears Nugget of Gold was BOS at Hamina and Pearytail Cherry Bomb at Helsinki. Glean Ho Ho Hogan had an even better weekend in many ways with a Gp3 at Lahti Group Show.

love the names of some Kennel Clubs in the States and this week has a couple of beauties. Vacationland KC was a OHG4 placement for Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney and at Magic Valley KC Kilkenny’s Middleton Irish Spirit was BOB at their two shows. And then took Best of Breed and OHG4 at Blennerhassett KC

Congratulations all you people who are very shy this week in the photographic department.

Just wow!!!!

Last week it was easy to decide which Glen of Imaal Terrier should lead the “honour roll” round up and it’s easy this week as well. Please everybody, stand and applaud Billy Tow vom Au Deich who, at the Dutch Championship Show, took Best Dog for the 7th time and Best In Show for the 4th. Oh yes, he was Best Veteran as well. Best Bitch was his kennel mate McJake’s Aivy. Another Veteran Best of Breed was Abberann Conan who added yet another ribbon to his tally at The National. Best Bitch came from the other end of the scale when Jeonty Jyn A New Hope got the nod from Junior. It was worth the trip for the Abberanns as Cosmic Cowboy was Reserve Dog & Reach For The Stars Ryanne Reserve Best Bitch. Best Puppy Amhard Off The Cuff

Nice to hear from Australia where “Neuter” titles are on offer. Taufield Queen of Tara was Runner Up Neuter and Best Neuter at her last two shows which gives her 96 out the 100 points needed. The European Winners in Dortmund saw Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice increasing his reputation with Best of Breed, Fire & Ice Naomi was Best Bitch. In Ireland Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore represented Glens in the Group ring. Gleann is an affix that regularly appears here but this week the first mention is from Canada and Dartmouth Kennel Club with a Group 4 and two Group 2s for Gleann Holy Hannah. Crossing the sea to Scandinavia and Jarvenpaa with Gleann Indico Indy as BOB and Gleann Halloween Hattie Best Opposite. Oulu Nordic Show saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard with the big ribbon and Gleann Halloween Hattie as Best Bitch. Gleann Ho Ho Hogan was Best of Breed at Seinajoki Group Show.

In America at Ravenna Kennel Club Tipperary That Girl was Best of Breed with Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen Best Dog at one show with the results repeated at another but it was G4 for American Girl & BBEG2 for Sailor John. Klanath Dog Fanciers had a back to back set of shows and Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas had a OHG2 and OHG3 whilst Keadeen’s Something Like A Phenomenon was Best Opposite both days but she went one better with a fabulous Puppy Group 1. Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight at Chambersburg KC Shows also registered the Glen in the Group ring with a OHG2 and a G4.

You all do us proud!!!

Blimey, we’re good.

Sometimes a show just has to start the Glen of Imaal Terrier catch up and this is one of those weeks; National Terrier. It’s considered one of the highlights of the terrier world and folk were there in force and it was a double, double result. Best of Breed and Best Opposite to the same owner with the two Reserves to the same owner…..and there was getting on for 40 years in the breed difference between them so ably illustrating that it is possible to do well with a Glen whoever you are. Something else was gloriously illustrated as well; Glens just get better and better as they get older. In possibly the majority of breeds animals of 10 & 12 wouldn’t be considered for serious showing. As there was no veteran class these mere youngsters were entered with everybody. One stood second between a two and three year old and the other swept all before him as he took the Dog ticket and BOB. Abberann Conan had one of the ultimate compliments paid by a judge who happened to be walking by the ring “that can’t be Homer surely!” To be recognised and known by his call name, that’s the way to go. Bitch CC to him was his kennel mate Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore which gave her the CH to add to the others at the front of her name. The two reserves went home in the proud pocket of Jane Alstead with the awarding to her Golden Spurs and Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage. Best Puppy went to Jeonty Dreams a Dream with Karensbrae who earned extra kudos for Glens with a 4th in the Puppy Stakes as well as a placing in the YKC Handling.

The Pearytail D litter debuted at the Kotka Puppy Show weekend and had rather a successful time. Pearytail Donald Dump took BOB both days over his sister Pearytail Dillion Dollar Baby and then topped it with a Group 3 and a Group 4. Sundsvall (Finland) saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard take home the Best of Breed rosette. Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat was having a trip to Lithuania and took Best of Breed both days as well as being shortlisted in the Group on Day 1. My Dear Fellow Cordula The Angel was BOB & BP at Dresden whilst Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice was picking up the applause at the International Show in Luxembourg.

Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend had a great cluster in Alabama. Group 1 both days at Tuscaloosa KC with Group 2 & 1 at the Birmingham KC shows. Be-D-Mar Sweet William took a G4 at Trap Falls KC and Abberann Lament for Owen Roe was at Packerland KC over Easter and took Group 4.

Lots of “beauty” but the brains of the breed were also on the go over the weekend when Ginny added another title to the back of her name so BCAT (AKC Fast CAT-100 yard Coursing Ability Test) joins the rest

National Terrier is often on Easter weekend but this year it was missed by a week. Nicki Montford said she would “provide cake” in honour and what a creation it was. Chocolate cake, with more chocolate cake and decoration of mini eggs and crème eggs. Suffice to say none of it returned home with her. Thanks Nic, it was greatly appreciated. Over the years Glen of Imaal Terrier owners have fought a long battle on how the name is spelt, it’s part of owning the breed, but jaws dropped when arriving at the benching area at National Terrier. The first Championship Show to gives us classes, the show that terrier folk go to and there it was….Glen of IMMAL. The Chairman and Secretary of NT, when the matter was bought to their attention, both swore innocence and said there would be spelling and breed awareness courses introduced before next year. We expect nothing less!

Great weekend everybody.

My thanks to the committee for their invitation also to the exhibitors for their entries. I appreciate some had long journeys in uncertain weather conditions at this time of the year.

VD/B (3,1) 1. Harley’s Ch Donvaleset Brier. So much to like about this 10 yr old wheaten bitch with nice outline, proportions, lovely feminine expression with correct bite and dark eye.

  1. Sage’s Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm. A 9 yr old wheaten bitch with a good head, nice feminine expression, dark eye, correct ear set and bite.   Good proportions with correct top line and tail set. In good harsh coat, neatly presented. On the day preferred movement of 1.

MPD (1) Hardy’s Amhard Manhattan. An appealing 6mth old blue youngster with nice outline and proportions, A good head with well defined stop, correct bite, ear set, and dark eye thus giving a lovely expression. Good angulation  front and rear and muscling up well for his age. In good coat, he enjoyed his debut in the ring, moving well with a nice tail carriage. Handled well.

PD (1) Hardy’s Amhard Manhattan

JD (1) White’s Abberann Cosmic Cowboy (IMP USA) A 10mth old blue youngster with pleasing outline and proportions. Skull of good width, correct ear set, dark eye and bite.

Forequarters stronger than rear with well boned foreleg and correct turn of foot. Shoulders broad and well laid back. In good harsh coat, neatly presented, he lacked enthusiasm on the move today.

OD (4,1) 1. White’s CH, IR, AM & SW CH Abberann Conan. Over the years many superlatives have been said about this 12yr old blue showman and I was delighted to have the opportunity to add my own. He has an excellent outline and proportions giving the impression of strength, essential in a Glen. In good coat, so well presented as always. His gentle expression belies a strong head and jaw with required correct ear set, dark eye and scissor bite. Fit for purpose, he has the desired front assembly and bone with strong hindquarters and depth of chest together with correct angulations. He is still well muscled throughout and commanded the ring with his balanced movement, tail carried gaily. Pleased to award him DCC & BIS

  1. Hannington’s Boudivella Osca A lot to like about this wheaten male of 2 yrs and 10mths, differing in type to 1.

An appealing expression, used to advantage, making her the exhibit I’d like to have taken home with me. Good front and rear angulation with correct top line and tail set. Muscling up well for her age and in good coat. She enjoyed her debut in the ring and once settled, moved well. Handled sensitively and unfortunate to come against a more mature dog for the puppy challenge.

JB (1,1a)

PGB (1) Saletti’s Bendikes Fidelma A 2 yr old blue bitch with a pleasing head, correct bite, ear set and  nice feminine expression.  Good proportions but would have liked more angulation and substance.

Correct front assembly, good bone and angulations front and rear. She is well muscled throughout in nice harsh coat but quite sparse on rear pasterns. Moved well with drive keeping her good top line and tail carriage. Maturing nicely and one to watch.

A bit quieter this weekend

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.
