Glen of Imaal Terrier. LKA December 2016
Thank you to LKA for the chance to judge & special thanks to all exhibitors for your support at this well run show. Glens are often lazy & this affects movement in the ring. Moving them a bit quicker will often increase stride length and give better drive from the rear
POST GRADUATE DOG 1) Romainville Freddies Choice. Well presented, sound in type & movement. Reserve Best Dog. 2) Jeonty Yippee Kiaye. Nice outline, well shown. Lacked maturity compared to winner. This will come.
OPEN DOG 1) Gleann Dynamo Man at Jeonty. Big powerful dog. Nice head and conformation. Best Dog.
VETERAN DOG 1) Brockland Blackadder at Malsville 1) Still a typlical Glen despite advancing years. A pleasure to handle.
GOOD CITIZEN DOG 1) Golden Spurs. Well presented, should make up well.
MINOR PUPPY BITCH. 1) Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage. Very much a baby but nice type. Has potential to become a very nice Glen.
PUPPY BITCH 1) Wickholm Breaking Dawn. A young bitch which had both type & substance. She was very well shown & moved well with purpose. Best Puppy & Reserve Best Bitch. 2) Wickholm New Moon. Nice youngster. Shown in good condition, not as forward in development as the winner.
POST GRADUATE BITCH 1) Wickholm Gone in Sixty Seconds. Good type, moved well. 2) Jeonty Mini MeMe. Nice outline & conformation. Lacked a bit in concentration which affected movement.
OPEN BITCH 1) Jeonty MeMe Fern. Sound in type with good bone.
VETERAN BITCH. 1) Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm. A solid well put together Glen. Moves well & certainly has presence. Best Veteran, Best Bitch & Best of Breed. 2) Jeonty Red Clover. Sound bitch who still has the typical Glen style & attitude. Well shown.

The two critiques above means Glens have had a full set for 2016 bar one. So Steve, if you are reading this, how about Midland Counties as you were “Sir”?
