Not quite so busy this weekend

Not so busy in the Glen of Imaal Terrier world though means that owners and dogs are still out and about and spreading the Glen Gospel though.

At Parnu International Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard took BOB both days and Pearytail Candy McCoy was Best of Breed at Mikkeli allbreed show. Karjaa All Breed saw Rosears Master of The House take the big rosette with Meomodo Fantabulous Amy Best Opposite and finishing her Finnish Championship.

A four show run for Abberann Torcan saw him take BOB at all of them (Kenilworth KC of Connecticut, Holyoke, Farmington Valley KC and Navgatuck KC with Abberann Derbla Best Bitch three times and Kilkenny Granite Rooney once. Keadeen Second Star to the Right took BOB at Puyallup and was shortlisted in the Group but no placement.

Ginny (as Monique writes) was showing her brains “Ginny just received her AKC Advanced Trick Dog title! AKC recognized her Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced Trick Dog titles through the ‘Do More With Your Dog’ organization.”

Congratulations everybody!

Glen folk….always busy

Two choruses of “Summertime” and the Glen of Imaal Terrier world continues to shine.

At Swords Show in Ireland Abberann Conan was Best of Breed with Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne Best Bitch. In Norway (not many results from there) at Tromso International Glenrosedale Ardal Ridire Ain Ri took the top spot with Gleann Gilda with Nelli Best Opposite. Kotka International was a success for Pearytail Cherry Bomb with Gleann Eager Edgar leading the dogs.

Over in the States a win that I’m not sure has been covered before; a Bred By Exhibitor Best In Show. Does any country have this other than America? Finnabair Caatskill Bring It On at Broc Rua was the lady who annexed it at Greater Venice Florida Dog Club. Finnabair Caatskill Goldie was BOB there and Coleraine’s Hob Nobs at Caraglen BOS at one of the shows with Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend annexing BOB above Caatskill Goldie Best Opposite. St Petersburg Dog Fanciers Association saw a Group 4 for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend with Bring It On Best Bitch and at the second show it was again Double D-plus another Gp4-Finnabair Shorelyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight BB. Echo Hills Kennel Club of Ohio two day show was a (2)Best of Breed for Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow and Daulton’s Ciaran at Pine Meadow took (2)Best of Opposite Sex. Back to Back shows at Bryn Mawr (PA) saw Tipperary Columbo victorious both days ahead of Tipperary American Girl.

The Group placements continue to come with Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta Best of Breed Thurs, Friday, Saturday at Grayslake with Abberann Torcan taking it on the Sunday. Aberann Phelan has now added Canadian Champion to his tally with a Group, 2 Group 2s and a Group 3! Also hearing of a Group Placement for Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas in Idaho….anybody care to send the details? Kate saw the appeal and sends the following “Emmet and I are now nearly halfway through the annual 14 day Idaho/Montana show circuit. The circuit starts in Filer, Idaho with a 2 day show hosted by the Snake River KC show. Judges Terry Stacy and R C Williams awarded Emmet a NOHS Terrier Group 1 and 2 before we moved on to Blackfoot, Idaho. We showed 2 of the 4 Blackfoot KC show days earning a Terrier Group 4 under Judge Kenneth Berg and both a NOHS Terrier Group 1 and 2 under Judges Pamela Peat and John Wade. Now, for the last 8 days of consecutive show days spread over 3 different Montana venues: Billings, Great falls and Missoula. I’ll keep you posted –

Congratulations indeed everybody!!

…and we’re back!

Let’s be honest here the intention wasn’t to be back until next Monday but boy oh boy you have kept us in your email box! It’s flattering to know that Glen of Imaal Terrier people think to include the blog in their thoughts. This year there have even been emails saying they’ll catch us up with the news when we “get back” so (if you haven’t forgotten what you wanted to tell us) we’re open for business again.

The UK may have been basically in hibernation show wise but not Finland and the USA. They have been out with great enthusiasm and they love to share-as we love to hear about-and there have been multiple referrals from the same show in some cases which does lead to a bit of eye crossing some times. If you are listed with the wrong place or result do let us know.

Starting in mid January in Wisconsin with two Group 4 placements for Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta. Staying in that part of the world next for a tremendous blast from the past….and what a blast. Abberann Conan (yes, Homer) is currently in the States showing to the US dog show fraternity that, in Glens at least, the breed gets better as it gets older. He took Terrier Veteran Group 1 at the first day of a cluster in Michigan. His granddaughter Across The Universe was BOB on all three days, picking up another couple of Group placements and son Torcan was BOBOH Gp4. That isn’t a brain fade as Theresa had him, not Carlos. Also Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow picked up OHG3 as well. Great publicity for Glens.

Over on the West Coast it was the Rose City Classic in Oregon with a new Champion crowned. Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette took BOB for three days with Keadean’s Second Star to the Right BOS to him. She did the same on Friday but this time it was Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas taking Best of Breed and on Sunday she bowed the paw to Kilkenny’s Love and Happiness and that made him into an AKC Champion. The breed was also out in Florida and Pennsylvania with Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock BOB at Greater Gainsville Dog Fanciers and at Erie Tipperary Cora Countess of Grantham was BOB & OHG4. Finishing the American section with two, yes two, Best In Shows down in New Mexico for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend. What a result on the run in to Westminster!!!

The Finns put us all to shame with their enthusiasm so here goes:-At Kajaani International Show Best of Breed was Highlanders Dream Casper. He did the same again at the Tallinn Winter Cup with Pearytail Black Cat Best Bitch and he was Best Opposite to Pearytail Candy McCoy at Turku International. Tallinn Terrier Speciality saw Rosears Kate The Duchess get the nod. Lahti Puppy Show saw Rosears Master of the House given the nod with Rosears Maid Marion Best Opposite.

Manchester Championship Show saw a Best of Breed for Golden Spur and he did the same at West Midlands Terrier.

So very well done to everybody!!

Slight indulgence by us. The photo of Across The Universe is not the one sent by the owner, it was sent by somebody else so hope they don’t mind. Is it not the best picture ever of a Glen’s attitude? You may wave a finger at me in the nicest way but I’m taking no notice….okay I may be out the corner of my eye. There had to be two of Homer to show how well he is looking.

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.
