Where to start with the riches happening over the weekend? First in at Gallatin Dog Club (2 day event) is Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend with a Group 3 and Group1, then another Group 3 & Gp1 at Helena (Montana) KC. Gig Harbour KC saw a BOB for Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glass, BOS to Keadenn’s Second Star To The Right but Emmet went on to Owner Handler Group 1 and Terrier Group 4. Another Group 3 placement (and 3xBOB) for Abberann Torcan in Missouri

Maybe no Group Placements next but still Best of Breeds at Butler County KC for Tipperary That Girl and Tipperary Countess of Grantham. Two for Kilkenny’s Irish American at Castlerock at West Volusia KC. Marfidal Pleasant Surprise went Best of Breed in Finland with Rosears Kate The Duchess taking Best Bitch. Maastricht 2016 saw Fire & Ice Liberty become BOB & Benelux Winner.

At Belfast Abberann Phelan was Best of Breed, Daultons Midnight Sky of Galore Best Bitch and the two Reserves were Jeonty Living Dream Saul and Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne. Best Puppy was awarded to Stiubhard Hit The Road Jack at Adrgraigue. Nice to get some news from Australia as Taufield Queen Of Tara gains the last points for her Championship at Nanango & District Kennel Club.

The “Brains Department” has been flying too as Kelli sends the following:-Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone BN, RA, CAA, RATO, JE, NJP, CGCA, NW2, PKDI, NCO2 chased the bunnies this weekend earning 5 more coursing ability legs and the “Meet & Greet” Department Donvaleset Rebus & Donvaleset Domino were at Malvern Autumn Show

New Champions and Group Placements!!!!

What a set of results to bring together; reckon it is three new Glen of Imaal Terrier Champions, two new working titles plus numerous Group Placements. The 3 newbies are Abberann Karl, Keadeen’s Sir Emmett Mingus Glas & Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone. Karl took his third ticket at Belfast with Abberann Ennya taking the Bitch CC and Abberann Phelan & Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Taking the respective two Reserves. Keadeen’s Sir Emmett Mingus Glas took his title at the Monroe KC cluster with Best of Winners all three days. Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone took his title with 2 Best Opposites at the West Velusia KC back to backs. Congratulations to the breed’s new Champions but special applause for Griff as his front CH will give a bit of balance to the BN, RA, CGCA, RATO, JE, NJP, CA(NW1) that appear at the back of his name.

Monique writes about the mighty Ollie “Oliver earned his Nose Work 3 Vehicle title (NW3-V) at the NACSW Nose Work trial in Ashby, Massachusetts on Saturday. The weather was finally cooler and he was extremely motivated to find the hidden birch, anise, and clove odours.” With Laura writing that Niamh has earned her Master FAST agilty title. 10 qualifying runs are required to get this.

At Carlow Championship Show Abberann Phelan was Best of Breed with Group 4, Best Bitch was Ir Ch Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore. At Gig Harbour in America Keadeen’s Chloe was BOB & BOBOH Group 2 at one of the shows and Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette was BOB at the other.

The West Volusia Finnabair All In took the top award and OH Group 4 at the first show and Finnabair Song O’My Heart was BOB plus OH Group 3 as well as Terrier Group 3. A cluster at Monroe, Michigan saw Abberann Torcan take all three of the Best of Breeds. The only European result to come in was the Hyvinkaa Group Show In Finland with Gleann Damn Daisy Best of Breed and Susamurun Resta Qui Best Bitch.

Looking at the Glen Gathering group photo from Barre, MA it was one heck of a day.

Everybody should give everybody else a round of applause-you all do Glen of Imaal Terriers so proud!!!!!

 

First weekend of Spring.

Great way to celebrate the (hopefully) beginning of better weather with a Glen of Imaal Terrier getting a Group 2! Stiubhard Cutie Pie was BOB at Lahti International and then went onto GP 2. Gleann Bigwig was Best Opposite. In Latvia Marfidal Koitiva Vaara took home the Best of Breed ribbon.

In America Ch RainbowSpings Geeruh Laoch added RATI to his name. Kelli and mark’s pair of boys though….wow. Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone, BN,RN, JE, RATN, CGCA, NW1 earned his Open Barn Hunt title (RATO) and his first leg in Senior Barn Hunt (RATS.) Griffin won 4 first places and 2 high in class ribbons also! Finnabair Winston O’Reilley, BN,CGCA, RN, CD, TD, THDA, NJP, NAP, RATS, JE , NW1, VCD1 earned his first leg in Masters for Barn Hunt and a first place!

So impressed with it all!!!!

 

And who was where?

Bath Championship Show was rather wet but Glen of Imaal Terrier people were there. Best of Breed, and his 20th CC, was Int Ch Brockland Brayhead Lad with the Bitch CC going to Bregorrey Lady Belleisle. A cluster of shows in Ohio saw 4 Best of Breeds for GCH Finnabair Ardmore Ned plus a Group 4 and 2 Group 3s. Three times his Best Opposite was CH Emerald Isle Sweet Molly Malone with Daulton and once GCH Daulton Emerald Green. Daulton’s Dark Lily of Caradoc was Best Puppy and also nodded into the number 2 slot in the Puppy Group. In the States and owner handled Group is also scheduled (due to the number of professional handlers) and Glens placed in that Group on two days; a group 3 for Paddington of Tipperary and a group 4 for GCH Liberty’s Darren of Daulton.

Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone, not yet 12 months old, finished his Beginners Novice Obedience title and obtained 2 legs towards his Rally Novice Title. Fabulously well done to griffin and “not bad at all” to the other winners over the weekend!!!
