Applause, applause, applause

Sometimes it’s the only thing you can do as you stand there in awe so keep clapping for Abberann Conan and Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend. These two Glen of Imaal Terriers are record breakers and a half. Conan, just very recently celebrating his 13th birthday, has overtaken the Challenge Certificate record of Brockland Brayhead Lad which-at 20-was a number that was expected to stand for a long time. It lasted for just 17 months as Conan took CC number 21 at Belfast at the end of September. Group placements for Glens aren’t that unusual in America but actual Group wins aren’t that common. This past weekend Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend took four group placements on the trot, 2 x Group 2 and 2 x Group 1 and at Greater Naples was signalled for his 6th Best In Show. a fabulous thing but it also meant he overtook Finnabair Ardmore Ned and his record of 23 Group 1s. What an example these two dogs are Glen lovers everywhere and they prove that if dedicated enough……

All the time Glen of Imaal Terriers heed the call that the time is right to leave their beloved people and do the solitary walk to the waiting eternal Glen family. All are missed and we ask that the applause keeps going for them and for another record breaking Glen who has just begun that walk. Tula was the first West Coast Glen to get a Grand Championship, the first Glen to earn the GITCA Master Versatility Award, the first and only Glen to earn Nose Work 3 and Nose Work Elite Titles. She successfully did Agility, Obedience, Rally Obedience, Earthdog, Barn Hunt & even had a Lure Coursing title. You name it and she did it with Louise. Grand Champion Broc Rua Tallulah CGS, CA, AJP, AZP, XFP, CD, RE, RATO, JE, NW2, NW3 you led the way for the breed. Thank you.

Certainly a BUSY weekend!!

The biggie in the Glen of Imaal Terrier world this last weekend, as it is for any show terriers, is the group of shows known as the Montgomery Cluster. The 4 day event starts off with Hatboro 1, then Hatboro 2, Devon and finally Montgomery Terrier Show itself. Starting in Finnabair DD Ain’t It The Life was BOB over her brother Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend, her son Finnabair You Should be So Lucky was Best of Winners. Hatboro 2 also went the way of the ladies with Kilkenny’s Across The Universe At Setanta over Friend of A Friend once more. Gleann Damn Daisy took BOW. Devon was a reversal of the Hatboro 1 top placings-Friend of A Friend over Ain’t It The Life- with Damn Daisy again Best of Winners. Montgomery (with the GITCA Specialty) finished off the weekend with a repeat of the Devon results and Finnabair You Should Be So Lucky once again Best of Winners. America is one heck of a big country though and other Group placings were being recorded. Abberann Phelan was Group 3 at Greater Omaha Terrier Association & Abberann Lament for Owen Roe Gp4 at Cornhusker KC of Lincoln Nebraska. Canada also saw two Group placements (2xGp3) with Abberann Derbla at Nipissing KC.

In Germany My Dear Fellow Cordula The Angel was BOB at Rostock and on the following day repeated her win at the Klub Fur Terrier Show. At that show Spirit of Ireland Batida de CoCo was Best Veteran and then won the Veteran Group! In Finland at Tuulos Group Show Gleann Gildea with Nellie took Best of Breed with Best Opposite Sex going to Gleann Ho Ho Hogan. Two days of showing in Ireland and once again it was the lady to the fore on day one with Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore taking BOB over Golden Spurs. Day 2 Sky had to bend a paw as her kennelmate Abberann Conan pipped her for Best of Breed. South Wales Kennel Association means just two shows left with CCs for Glen of Imaals before the end of the year. At SWKA Boudivella Osca was the man over Jeonty Jyn A New Hope who took her third ticket and Best Opposite Sex. The two Reserves being Romainville Rock A Fella, who was also Best Puppy & Amhard Mai Tai.

“Brains” have also been in action. Laura Trainor writes We are competing at the Montgomery Terrier Agility trials. There is a competition for best breed “village” with the theme of the old west. The Mini Schnauzers had a photo booth to benefit their rescue. Unfortunately, Niamh was able to make use of their reasons to be WANTED for her standard run.  She redeemed herself in her Jumpers run, qualifying under judge Pamela Sturtz. This Q was her 75th lifetime qualifying Master Jumpers With Weaves run, earning her the title Master Jumpers Preferred Gold! Later in the day she also qualified in Master Barn Hunt. Good Girl Niamh! and from Monique Anthony:-Ginny participated in AKC Agility trials this past weekend and qualified twice in the Novice Standard Preferred class and once in the Open Jumpers Preferred class, placing first or second each time.

The full Montgomery results have arrived: Glen of Imaal Terrier Club of America National Specialty. Breeder-Judge Bruce Sussman. Sweeps Judge longtime breeder Maura High. BOB GCHS Finnabair Double D Friend Of A Friend BOS Ch Finnabair DD Ain’t It The Life WD/BOW/BPSW Finnabair You Should Be So Lucky WB/AOM Gleann Damn Daisy Select Dog GCHS Keadeens Sir Emmet Mingus Glas Select Bitch and Best Bred By GCh Daulton’s Caiomhe of Pine Meadow AOM Ch Berdmar Sweet William O’Shea AOM Ch Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight Best Puppy Finnabair Phoenix Rising At Shorlyne Best Veteran Sweeps Ch Niamh of Cnoc

Another month gone

Still Glen of Imaal Terrier people show their dogs to the world.

Belfast was a triumph for Abberann with Conan Best of Breed (and obviously Best Veteran) and his daughter Reach for the Stars Ryanne Best Bitch. Reserve Dog was Cosmic Cowboy with Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae Reserve Bitch. Gleann Una Noonan was another Best Veteran & BOB at Aland Dog Show in Finland, Gleann Indico Indy was Best Dog.

Over in the States the Terrier Club of Michigan is the week before Montgomery and it picks up a good entry as the west and mid country terriers head east. Best of Breed was Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta with Kilkenny’s Love & Happiness Best Opposite. Monroe KC has two days of shows after the Terrier Club so again nice entries. Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas was Best plus OHG4 with Across the Universe Best Bitch at the first show with the results being switched around at show 2. At Suffolk County KC Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney  took Best there and Group 4 and she was also BOB at Westbury KA.

Glens were also flying the flag at the Malvern Autumn Show in the World of Animals.

Great going everyone

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!!!
