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!

Cathy Delmar (judge)

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.

Mike Brown MBE (Judge)

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”?

As we leave 2016…

Let us all celebrate Glen of Imaal Terriers. Each and every one is special but the Top Show Glens are the ones that repeatedly get out to spread the word to everybody. In the UK Pajantick Star Trooper gets the accolade and it is Gleann Willie the Whale for Denmark. Finland sees Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo take the nod for number 1 and the USA raises a paw to Abberann Torcan and his younger “bro” Abberann Phelan gets the same in Ireland so incredibly well done.

If any other country would like to send their Top Glen we’d be happy to mention them on here.

Happy 2017 to every Glen of Imaal Terrier owner, admirer, follower, enthusiast and lover.

Everybody is a “Winner”.

The Scandinavians do like a “Winners Show” and this weekend it was the Helsinki & Finnish Winners as well as the Helsinki Puppy Show. It was a great weekend for Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo as he was Best Dog & BOB at both shows. Pearytail Artless Tess was Best Bitch at Helsinki and Gleann Dear Dandelion at the Finnish. The Helsinki Puppy Show saw Rosears Master of the House getting the nod with Rosears Maid Marion Best Bitch. It was also the Amsterdam Winners and the Holland Cup with a double for Abberann Phelan and Abberann Reach For The Stars Ruari. Phelan taking BOB both days

At the Ladies Kennel Association it was certainly a family act. Best Bitch, Best Veteran and Best of Breed went to Jeonty Lola May of Wickholm with her daughter Wickholm Breaking Dawn Reserve Bitch and Best Puppy. Best Dog was Breaking Dawn’s sire Gleann Dynamo Man at Jeonty. Reserve to him was Romainville Freddie’s Choice.

Well done to everybody

Association Champ Show…amongst others.

A quieter weekend but some Glen of Imaal Terrier people were still showing on the 1st Sunday of Advent; Christmas presents can wait awhile yet! The Glen of Imaal Terrier Association saw Romainville Billy Whizz getting the nod for Best in Show with Young May Moon Best Opposite Sex and Reserve Best In Show. The 2 Reserves were Romainville Fast ‘n’ Furious at Wickholm and Amhard Jeez Louise respectively. Best Puppy was (6 months on the day) Romainville Izzy Wizzy and Best Veteran Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm. Nice day for the Romainville and Wickholm kennels. It was Billy Whizz’s second BOB of the weekend as he had also taken that position at West Midlands Terrier

Slightly belated news from the Irish Breeds Society Show with a wonderful result for Glens; Abberann Phelan was Reserve Best In Show and Abberann Conan was Best Veteran in Show…nice!

Over in America at Agathon Kennel Club Best of Breed, and OHG2, was Tipperary Violet Dowager Countess who can now put Ch in front of her name, Best Dog was Daulton’s Rory. Sunday Agathon had Rory BOB (with Group 3) and Emerald Isle Keely with Daulton BOS. Violet finished off a good weekend by getting the nod for Bred By Exhibitor Gp1.

On the “brains” front Kelli Whitfield sends news “Griffin earned a qualifying agility run in Open Jumpers today with a first place completing his Open Jumpers Preferred (OJP) title today.”

Congratulations all.

A “Winners” session!

The rest of the Northern Hemisphere may be thinking WINTER but dog people, and particularly Glen of Imaal Terrier folk, are certainly out and about.

The Danish Winners was a BOB for Pearytail Artless Tess with McCormac Setna Sithbacc Best Dog. Another Pearytail day at the Norwegian Winners with P Bonnie B Goode getting the nod over Marfidal Rohjaton Pohmu. The Baltic Winners saw Gleann Dynamite Mike taking Best of Breed with Pearytail Bonnie B Goode Best Opposite. Jyvaskyla International finished a great collection for the Pearytail kennel with P Candy McCoy taking BOB. A back to back weekend in Germany had McJake’s Angel’s Son Djuke taking Best of Breed both days with McJakes’s Aivy Best Bitch one day and Mr Dear Fellow Brunhilde de CoCo the other. Back to back ICK shows saw Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore take BOB with Abberann Phelan Best Dog, the results flipped around for day 2. Abberann Conan did Glens incredible proud by being awarded Reserve Best Veteran In Show

The Secretary of the Dutch Glen Club sends the following: Dogshow Bleiswijk brought two Dutch Champions. BOB was My Dear Fellow Billy the Kid McJakes what gave him enough points for the Dutch Championship.BOS was Madra Áthas Aoife Aideen an tSolais who also became Dutch Champion. Well done both!

The States have had, amongst other things, the big cluster in Philadelphia. At Penn Treaty KC Ber-D-Mar Nate the Great at Wicklow was Best of Breed with Tipperary Violet Dowager Countess Best Bitch. Violet was again Best Bitch at Greater Philidelphia Dog Fanciers Association with Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea taking Best of Breed. Kennel Club of Philidelphia was a success again for Nate the Great with Daulton’s Tupelo Honey of Galore Best Opposite. The 4th Show of the cluster saw Tupelo Honey Best Opposite again with Sweet William O’Shea Best of Breed this time.

Down in Florida at Seminole Dog Fanciers and Greater Ocala Dog Club it was an incredible couple of days for Gleann Cotton Cody taking Group 2 and 3 respectively. Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at castle rock was Best Bitch both days. Another Group Placement up at Whidbey Island Kennel Club with a Group 2 for Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right whilst at Coos KC Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette was BOB and also BOBOH Group 2. Umpqua KC was another triumph for Blue Boy and he again was placed second in the Owner Handler Group. Central Ohio KC was a Best of Breed for Kilkenny’s Across the Universe for Setanta with Daulton’s Rory BOS/BOBOH and Owner Handler Group 4

The “Brains Department” was also working well with a Nosework 2 award for Sullivan Lopez and two sets of news news from Monique that Oliver qualified and earned a third place metallic ribbon in the Excellent Distance nosework class on Saturday at the Performance Scent Dogs trial in Raymond, New Hampshire and he also participated in a Performance Scent Dogs trial  and qualified in the Excellent Distance class for the 10th time.  He came in 2nd place (metallic division) and earned a Bronze Metallic Award for his cumulative efforts.

 

Congratulations indeed to everybody. You all do us proud!!!

It’s brains to the fore…..

Normally the weekend round up starts with the “beauty” of Glen of Imaal Terriers but this as week it has to be the “brains” as Louise Lopez writes “Tula made a little bit of Glen history today: She became the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to earn the NACSW Nose Work 3 title. And she did it in style! She was the top dog in a field of 30 and the only dog who actually qualified to earn the title today–and, so, first place automatically. The silver tin at the bottom of the photo contains all of today’s hides . It’s presented to the top dog of the day–and, today, that’s Tula!”

The exhibition folk were also out with a Best of Breed for Emerald Isle’s Keely with Daulton at Delaware (Ohio) Kennel Club whilst in Europe Lahti International had a Best of Breed for Gleann Dynamite Mike and a BOS for Gleann Dear Dandelion, Hanover International saw Fire & Ice Naomi waved to the top spot in the breed and Abberann Phelan was Best of Breed (and Group 2!) at Cloghran with Abberann Reach for the Stars Ruari Best Bitch.

In the UK it was Midland Counties and another double, this time for the Romainvilles: Billy Whizz was Best of Breed with Whistle Dixie Best Opposite. The two Reserves were Pajantick Razamataz and Romainville Moira with Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage Best Puppy.

Congratulations everybody!!
