Is this one of the most successful weekends ever ever?

Glen of Imaal Terriers had one heck of a weekend. Amongst other things Group placements, Group wins and a Best in Show have been the order of the last few days!!!

First up has to be Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend with three Group 1 placements and a Best in Show. These were at Central Florida KC, Space Coast KC of Palm Bay-got to love that name-and Brevard Kennel Club were he was then awarded the biggie, Best In Show. Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas hasn’t exactly been slacking either with a Group 1 at Electric City KC and then Owner Handler RBIS. Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta was in Minnesota and added two Group 3s and two Group 4s whilst Abberann Derbla was notching a Group 3 in Maine. Up in Canada Abberann Phelan took a Group 3.

Back across to Europe and at Rovaniemi International BOB was Glenrosedale Ardal Ridire Ain Ri with Astoreen taking Best Bitch. At Blackpool Romainville Becks Blue for Zippoor was Best of Breed with Romainville Moira Best Opposite. Slovenia Winner went to Cairdiulacht Aoife Nicalainna the week after she took Mediterranean Winner and Enci Winner 17 in Milan. Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage and Golden Spurs were flying the Glen flag at Chesire Show, not easy in populace variety, but both came home with cards and one was a red one.

Jeff Dairiki wasn’t showing his boys in the exhibition ring but was out giving them some brain practice and writes “Ciarán went 3 for 5 in the masters ring this weekend, earning a HIC on Friday. (I never thought that would ever happen, the way he holds on to tubes.) Quinn went 5 for 5, earning his RATCH! Quinn also got to do five crazy 8 runs, earning 280 points for the weekend”

Glen of Imaal Terriers and their people….awesome!!!

Incredibly busy few weeks!!

Glen of Imaal Terrier people never stop; new titles, new Champions, Group placings, even a Best Puppy In Show, it’s been a great few weeks.

There has been a lot of beauty but also there has been a lot of brains. Monique sends news that “Ginny had fun at the Performance Scent Dogs (PSD) trial on Saturday, qualifying in 4 out of 5 nosework classes and earning a title in Novice Containers. Also Ginny qualified for the third time in the Novice Barn Hunt class, earning her RATN title! She then moved up to the Open class for the afternoon trial and was successful again. Both of her runs were first place finishes also!” Also a celebration of (one) new title for Glens when Bregorrey Sovereign Storm added a CBAT to the end of his name by titling in the Fast CAT. Stormy was clocked at an incredible 22 mph! The American Kennel Club has just introduced a Trick Dog title. The all performing pair of Winston & Griff are the first two Glens to be awarded the titles.

Lets go showing: At WELKS Romainville Billy Whizz was nodded to BOB with Romainville Jean Genie Best Bitch and at The National Romainville Fast N’furious At Wickholm was Best of Breed with Romainville Fade To Grey BOS and getting made up to Champion. Over in Ireland Abberann Conan took home the big rosette from both South Tipperary and Fermoy, Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore & Abberann Reach for the Stars Ryanne were the respective Best Opposites. At the Dutch Glen Club Show Best In Show was Cairdiulacht Breanainn MacAngus with McJake’s Aivy Best Bitch

Fabulous news of a Best Puppy in Show for Meomodo Bohos Trick or Treat and Highlanders Dream Casper added to his BOB list (and took Group 4) with Gleann Funny Fifi Stiubhard Best Bitch. At another show Gleann Bigwig was The Man with Pearytail Candy McCoy Best Opposite. Salo Group Specialty had Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo BOB with Taramont Niamh Tirnan’Og BOS and Best Veteran. In Estonia Gleann Eager Edgar took two Best of Breeds and his Estonian Championship.

Canadian news and Abberann Phelan has started his career there with a Group 4, Group2 & Group 1-some debut indeed. First news (I think) from Idaho, at the Palous Hill Dog Fanciers back to back shows Keadeen Second Star to the Right took 2 BOBs and Gp 1 to become a Grand Champion. Kilkenny Across the Universe at Setanta added a Gp3 & 4 to her tally and Finnair Double D Friend of a Friend took four Best of Breeds and a Gp4 at Trenton & Bucks County Shows. His Best Opposites were Tipperary American Girl, Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskills Comedy Tonight & Daulton’s Tupelo Honey of Galore twice. Tipperary American Girl took her own Best of Breeds at Columbia Terrier Association of Maryland & Old Dominian KC of North Virginia where her son Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc was Best Dog. American Girl was Best Opposite again, but this time at Ber-D-Mar Nate The Great of Wicklow at Baltimore County KC. Daulton’s Tupelo Honey of Galore was also notching up the BOBs at Springfield KC, Pioneer Valley KC and South Windsor.

Terrier Club of Michigan saw Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore take BOB with Abberann Be Brave Best Opposite. Fort St Clair Kennel Club (another great KC name) had back to back shows with Kilkenny’s Middleton of Irish Spirits taking BOB both times and a OH3. Klamath Dog Fanciers had a weekend of shows with Keadeen Blue Boy of Bluesette taking BOB twice and OH4 one day with Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas getting the big rosette the other two days. Finishing off with another Group placement, this time from Abberann Derbla at St Hubert KC.

All these fabulous Glen of Imaals in the ring would only have been seen if you were at the shows. Getting the breed out and about to people is just as important and at the London Pet Show Leia, Reilly, Dylan, Candy, Toby and their respective humans flew the flag with honour!

Busy or what!

Things got a bit behind hand reporting on Glen of Imaal Terrier wins but now the highs of Crufts have already started to recede into memory (except for the Sage family of course) it’s time to catch up.

As it’s just been St Patrick’s Day we’ll start there with a BOB for Abberann Reach for the Stars Ryanne and Best Opposite for Abberann Conan but at Celtic Winners the day after Conan showed the breed’s Veteran Power by taking BOB over Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore. Jumping over to mainland Europe and it was Best of Breed for Highlander’s Dream Casper in Lithuania whilst Gleann Dear Dandelion was BOS. Riga International was a win for Gleann Dear Dandelion with Best Dog going to Rosears Master of the House. Lehre in Germany saw McJake’s Angels Son Djuke take Best Opposite to My Dear Fellow Brunhilde de Coco Best of Breed.

Jeff Dairiki sends news: Ciarán, (GCHB Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette CA RATCH) has had a nice run of shows.  After returning from his AOM at Westminster, he took BOB at all four days of the Albany, Oregon cluster at the end of February, finishing his bronze grand championship.  (He also was awarded an OHG1 on the first day of that cluster.)  Last weekend, he continued his streak by taking BOB (and OHG2) both days at the Seattle KC shows.

A couple of back to back shows at Monticello (New York) Kennel Club had Abberann Derbla Group place at both events with a 4 and a 2. Down in Florida Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock was Gp4 at Palm Beach County whilst in Kentucky Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta was BOB at Mid-Kentucky KC with Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore BOS. Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas was BOBOH and took OHG3. At Louisville KC Emmet again repeated his OHG3 but was also BOB with Across The Universe taking Best Opposite.

Kate Flack writes:-Ended the Louisville Ky show today, and I could not be prouder of Emmet – GCH CH Keadeen’s Sir Emmet …. Flew in to this 3200+ dog show and four days later we leave with 2 Best of Breed awards, & 3 Best in Breed Owner Handled (OH). On top of that we won 3 group placements In the large and competitive OH terrier group each of the 3 days it was offered. Watching and participating in the regular terrier groups with nationally known handlers and top ranked dogs was a privilege. Wonderful to see the top dogs in their breeds all competing for 4 spots and a shot at Best in Show

Great going everybody!!!

Monique writes the following:- Oliver qualified in all 4 Nosework classes held yesterday (Containers & Exteriors) at the Performance Scent Dogs trial in Auburn, NH. This new canine scenting organization awarded their first titles ever and I’m proud to say that Ollie accumulated enough qualifying runs to earn a Novice Containers title! The old guy rocked! He has participated in quite a few sports & organizations, and his complete name is now:

On the exhibition front Blackpool saw a Best of Breed for Ch Kirikee Ronan O’Gara with Best Bitch going to Amhard Indy Kate. At Kilkenny Ch Abberann Phelan took the top spot with Ch Abberann Dervla BOS. Over in Europe Gallivare International had Gleann Ungus MacGuire in the number one spot with Gleann Balloo Girl taking Best Bitch. Over in the States Ch Abberann Torcan continued his Group tally with a Gp 4 at West Bend Wisconsin.
