And first in this week goes to……

Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend took a short sojourn in Canada for the Sarnia cluster and returned home with  2 x Group 2, 1 Group 3, 1 x Group 4 and his Canadian Championship.  The first American bred Glen of Imaal Terrier to obtain it. Finnabair DD Ain’t It The Life was also in Canada and collected three Group 4s. In Scotland Bon Accord is the local show for Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae and it was rather a good one for a finish to her puppy career. Puppy Group 1 and first in Vulnerable Breeds. Over in Ireland Abberann Cosmic Cowboy was BOB at Bray.

In Finland Oulu International Show saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard take Best of Breed with Astoreen Best Opposite. It was also the weekend of the Finnish Glen Club Show with a fabulous entry of 51. Best In Show went to Gleann Cotton Cody with Gleann Happy Hippie Best Bitch. Best Veteran was Abberann Fagan with Best Puppy being awarded to Finnabair Broc Rua Arda of Gleann. The Youngest Junior Handlers had a wonderful time!

In America a cluster of shows at West Springfield, Massachusetts, saw some nice Glen entries. Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea was Best of Breed at all four (picking up a Gp4 at Kenilworth KC of Connecticut inc) with Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney celebrating a return to the ring after her litter of ten with 3 x BOS and an OHG4. The other Best Opposite going to Kilkenny’s Midleton of Irish Spirit.

Congratulations everybody

Let’s applaud ourselves…we deserve it!

Let’s start the Glen of Imaal Terrier round up for this last weekend in the UK with the EFG Open Show. It continued the “double theme” of National Terrier with both Best Dog & Bitch going to the same kennel. Golden Spurs was Best Dog (and Best In Show) with Romainville Billy Whizz Reserve Best Dog who also took Reserve Best In Show. Best Bitch (and Best Opposite in Show) went to Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage over Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm as Reserve Bitch with Lola, at one month short of 10, taking Best Veteran. Best Puppy was Jeonty Glynis Making Magic at Zippor. The EFG is held in conjunction with Birmingham Gundog & Terrier-the only time currently that Glen people can show twice in one day under two different judges-with Boudivella Osca taking Best of Breed there and Jeonty Jyn A New Hope Best Bitch. Also a Glen was performing in the very competitive NSC classes with Kingcottage Boogie on Basil taking Best NSC at Llanelli and District Canine Society Open Dog Show .

A quick flip west to Ireland for the Mid West Champ Show and Best of Breed Abberann Cosmic Cowboy. East to mainland Europe and Latvia with a BOB for Marfidal Pleasant Surprise and then Lithuania for their National All Breed Show and Finnabair North American Nebulon who took home the BOB rosette. Not often results from the Czech Republic so excellent to hear that Sachem Sagittarius was BOB at Budejovice. Coming back this way again, to Antwerp, it was Jeonty Junior Fire and Ice flying the breed flag there to BOB.

Way west to the States and here are the Group placers. Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas was BOB, and Group 2, at Palouse Hills Dog Fanciers with half sister Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right Best Opposite and the result was the same for the second show and Lewis Clark Kennel Club.  Western Carolina Dog Fanciers Association saw another  2 Group placements, Gp 1 & Gp4, for Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend. News of a Terrier Puppy Group 1 at the Central Ohio KC Puppy Match for Finnabair Broc Rua Pegasus with Shorlyne. Columbia Terrier and Old Dominion KC of Northern Virginia saw double Best of Breed for Tipperary Columbo with Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskills Comedy Tonight Best Opposite at both. Columbo was again BOB at Baltimore County KC. A Baby Puppy Group 1 for Kilkenny’s The Gift Outright to Irish Spirits at Central Ohio KC.

Breed brains were doing well and Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae got her entry into The Good Citizen class at shows by qualifying at 8 months old. Kelli Whitfield sends news that “Griffin played NADAC agility on Friday. He earned his first Open Touch N Go qualifying score and first place as Winston cheered him on! Monique sends word “Ginny earned her first Q and placed first in a Novice Preferred Jumpers class at an AKC Agility trial this weekend!!!”

People, you are just amazing!!

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. Good front assembly with ample bone, depth of chest and good angulation front and rear, Still well muscled throughout and in good harsh coat, well presented.  Moved well whilst holding her top line.

  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. Good front assembly with ample bone, depth of chest and good angulation front and rear. Well muscled throughout for his age. In good coat, well presented. Moved with drive holding his top line showing a good tail carriage. Pleased to award him BPIS

Skull of good width with powerful foreface, correct ear set, dark eye and bite. Correct front assembly with strong neck and well boned. Good angulation front and rear, and depth of chest. Well sprung ribs and nicely muscled up throughout with strong hindquarters and good bend of stifle.

LD (1) Hardy’s Amhard Just In Thyme. A 3 ½ year old wheaten male with the impression of substance. Good head with correct ear set, dark eye and bite, giving such an appealing Glen expression. 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.

Good angulation front and rear, and well muscled throughout. In good coat and well presented, he moved well with correct tail carriage.

MPB (1) Hardy’s Amhard Mai Tai. A lovely 6 mth old youngster, litter sister to the PD winner. Pleasing feminine head with dark eye and good bite. 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.

PB (1) Hardy’s Amhard Mai Tai

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.

Correct harsh coat in good condition and well presented. A strong head with correct ear set, dark eye and bite showing a typical Glen expression to her advantage. Correct front, good bone and angulation front and rear with a deep chest, nice spring of ribs, and strong hindquarters.  Fit for purpose, she moved with drive maintaining her top line and tail carriage. Pleased to award her BCC & RBIS

In good harsh coat, well presented. A strong head, with correct bite and dark eye.  Good bone and angulations front and rear, she is well muscled throughout. A deep chest with well sprung ribs and strong hindquarters.  Moved well holding her top line.

A new Champion and yet another Group placing.

Glen of Imaal Terrier people in the UK were up and about early as there was a 9.00am start at Darlington. The Hannington family were one of the furthest travellers in the breed but they positively flew home as their Romainville Uptown Girl took her 3rd CC so became a Champion. The Dog CC and Best of Breed was Golden Spurs who is having a great run at the moment. Respective Reserves were Pajantick Razamataz and Romainville Whistle Dixie. Best puppy was Jeonty Jyn A New Hope. A new name to the top slot in Ireland as Abberann Cosmic Cowboy took the Dog Green Star and BOB at Carlow with Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne taking Best Bitch.

Seems to have been a quiet weekend in Finland with only one result coming through. Tampere Group Show was a win for Highlander’s Dream Casper with Glenrosedale Cairenn Chasdubh Best Bitch. A cluster of shows in Massachusetts saw a Best of Breed for Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney and three for Kilkenny’s Best of My Love who also took OHG2.

Nice going everybody!!
