Another week gone

Let’s begin this week in California as it’s a while since there have been a number of Glen of Imaal Terriers showing in that State. Yosemite KC had a back to back with Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right Best of Breed both days. Keadenn’s Happy Go Lucky and Keadeen’s Kind of Blue were the two Best Opposites. Contra Costa County KC (another great name) was another double triumph again for Second Star with Happy Go Lucky once again Best Opposite. Moving east to McKinley KC Daulton’s Captain Jack of Roseglen took the top Glen award there. Greenwich Kennel Club had Ber-D-Mar Sweet William taking BOB. Abberann Phelan was THE man of the weekend, at b2b shows at Wheaton KC he was Group 1 both days and Reserve Best In Show on the second!

The Scandinavian enthusiasts put us all to shame with their enthusiasm week after week. Rosears Made To Measure was Best of Breed at Forssa with Marfidal Santa Baby Best Bitch. In Palanga (Lithuania) Rosears Kate the Duchess was BOB and became a new Lithuanian and Baltic Champion. The Latvian Winners saw Gleann Indico Indy take the “big rosette” with Gleann Una Noonan Best Opposite. Miijoonakoira was another Best of Breed trophy for Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard with Astorren Best Bitch. In Germany, to celebrate 40 years of the SCWT there a special show was held for the Terriers of Ireland. BOB was Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice with Best Bitch Heart of Green Island Abbigail

Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae was out in Varieties and at Dundee was Best Not Separately Classified.

In the “Brains Department” Laura Trainor reports ” Liam, Niamh and Kylee found the Pi-rats at the Central Bark Barn Hunt trial. Niamh earned 3 Master Qs.” What a great photo!

Congratulations all

Quite a bit to catch up on!

Glen of Imaal Terriers quite often position in the Group in America but in Europe it is quite rare so the lead in today just must go to Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice who was BOB at Lingen, Germany and then went on to Group 3! Best Bitch at the show was My dear Fellow Cordula the Angel. In Prague My dear Fellow Bealtaine de Coco took Best of Breed with My dear Fellow Cordula the Angel Best Opposite. At another show in the Czech Republic My dear Fellow Clärchen the Angel  was Best of Breed. In Sweden (Vasteras) Marfidal Pleasant Surprise was Best of Breed and Marfidal Up To Your Ears-great name- was taking a short holiday in Serbia & Estonia and was rewarded with BOB at each. Tampere Nordic Show was a triumph for Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard with BOS being awarded to Pearytail Candy McCoy. He did it again on the Sunday Show with Gleann Una Noonan being awarded Best Bitch. At WELKS Romainville Billy Wizz was Best of Breed with Sigrid Helga at Pant Cottage Best Bitch, Jeonty Glynis Making Magic for Zippor was Best Puppy

In America Tipperary American Girl was BOB and OHG1 at Mountaineer Kennel Club, at Crawford County KC Glens again featured in the Owner Handler Group with Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen being pulled in number four and over in California Finnabair Caatskill Bring It On at Broc Rua was OHG3 twice. Bucks County KC saw Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea get the nod for BOB whilst at Fort St Clair KC it was Kilkenny’s Middleton Irish Spirit.

Brains were busy as well as beauty. Eili earned her Novice Barn Hunt RATN & Jeff Dairiki’s news is that Ciarán and Quinn each earned their Barn Hunt RATCHX4 titles and there is news of “Pepper”. She was running FastCat at Brevard KC and earned her BCAT title. The Brains round up is always done with call names but registered names are liked for the first mention so Pepper….who are you?

..and we’re back!

What have we missed? It must have been something good as there were over 600 visitors on the 9/10 of February. If you were one of them do let us know what you were looking for-we still might be able to help.

Well “the biggie” of the AKC is gone and done with a triumph for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend. Taylor had certainly had a good run pre the event with two Group 4s and numbers 15 & 16 Group 1s. He celebrated his Westminster win with two Group 2s and a Group 3 on his return to Florida. Best Opposite to him in New York was Tipperary American Girl. Ber-D-Mar Sweet William o’Shea was picking up BOBs all over but the best named place must surely be Northern Neck KC of Virginia! Kate Flack was also out with Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas notching up 3 x BOb as well as 2 Owner Handler placements.

Finland doesn’t stop for the darker months. Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat was busy picking up Junior Championships in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. At Turku International Dog Show Best of Breed was awarded to Gleann Una Noonan with Rosears Master of the House Best Dog. Lahti Puppy Show saw Madra Athas Ceinlys Chead Ghra took a tremendous Group 2 award. Kajani Show was a BOB for Finnabair North American Nebulon with Pearytail Bonnie B Goode Best Bitch.

We weren’t as quiet as we usually are with Manchester now being in the “closed” period. Best of Breed was Boudivella Tegan with Romainville Becks Blue with Zippor Best Dog. Pajantick Hot Totty was Best Puppy. West Midlands Terrier had Jeonty Minnie MeMe BOB, Golden Spurs Reserve Best of Breed and Jeonty Letty Be Magic Best Puppy. Sporting Terrier of Yorkshire saw Amhard High Flyer getting the nod for Best of Breed and Amhard Manhatten was Reserve as well as Best Puppy. There aren’t a lot of Glen of Imaal Terriers in Scotland so showing is done in the highly competitive Variety classes but Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae is certainly getting noticed. A Puppy Group 4 was excellent but then at Coatbridge, Airdrie & District BAVNSC Terrier, Terrier G1, Terrier Puppy G1 and Best Puppy In Show were all added to her precocious bow.

Jeonty Junior Fire and Ice was “The Man” in Eindhoven and he did it again at Gent as well as being pulled in the Group. Boudivella Osca also made the trip over and as Junior is still that, a junior, he picked up the CACIB.

The brains of the breed were not being rested. Quite a few Rally qualifications have been won but two ladies send the BIG news for Glens.Ginny spent two recent weekends having fun at AKC Scent Work trials.  She finished her Novice Buried & Interior titles to add to her already completed Exterior & Container titles, becoming the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to earn an overall AKC Scent Work Novice (SWN) title!  She also earned a Container Novice Elite title (SCNE) by qualifying for the 10th time in that class. Qualifying runs were also received in the Advanced Interior & Advanced Exterior classes (4th place)!   Louise sends news of Tula “Here’s to Tula who earned her Elite Division Level 1 Nose Work title today-another first for Glens. She makes me proud every day”.

Very well done and huge congratulations!! Don’t forget to send along anything you think may be of interest to the worldwide Glen family.

A “Winners” Weekend.

A weekend of big shows; Three Scandinavian, one Dutch and (nearly) LKA. Glen of Imaal Terrier folk were at them all.

Helsinki Winners started things off with a Best of Breed for Gleann Cotton Cody and Best Opposite to Pearytail Candy McCoy. The Nordic Winners was a triumph for Gleann Una Noonan with Cotton Cody taking Best Dog. Una Noonan was THE girl again at the Finnish Winners with Gleann Bigwig taking Best Opposite. The Junior titles went to Cairdiulacht Daibhi MacMiolmor at all three with the sisters Gleann Happy Hippie and Gleann Halloween Hattie taking the title twice and once respectively. Puppy Shows run along side and BOB at one was Madras Athas Cayleigh Chead Ghra-Hammersmolles Rocket Saturn Best Opposite-with Gleann Indico Indy taking BOB and Puppy Group 3 at another. The Amsterdam Winners had Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice waved forward for Best of Breed with Fire & Ice Naomi Best Bitch

In the States Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea took Gp1 & Gp3 at Forsyth KC back to back shows and Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend went one better than a Group 1 with a Best In Show at Mississippi Gulf Coast KC. Daulton’s Captain Jack of Roseglen took home the Best of Breed ribbon from Richland County and Western Reserve KC.

Finally LKA. On paper it was an excellent entry of 14 for judge Ali Seall but the heavy snow that blanketed the middle of the country had Birmingham firmly in the middle of it and conditions were reported as nigh on treacherous in many areas. Glen of Imaal exhibitors, and the judge, set off fully prepared to slog it through but worsening conditions dictated that the only sensible thing to do was to turn around and all made it home safely. The only Glen that got through was the furthest travelled as Linda Smith had come up from Guernsey a couple of days before so full applause to Romainville Bilbo Baggins on his Best of Breed and flying the flag for us.

Such a good showing weekend but the “brains” were also out in the snow Ginny qualifying in the Advanced Buildings and Advanced Distance classes at the Performance Scent Dogs (PSD) trial in Massachusetts this weekend. She also titled in Novice Speed and earned the overall Novice level title (SDN). What a weekend.

Congratulations everybody

On the way down to Germany Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo stopped off in Prasgue and added a Cz Ch to his name.

It’s nearly Easter

and Glen of Imaal Terrier owners are adding rosette colour to their Easter displays. An excellent weekend for the Gleann Kennel with Cotton Cody and Damn Daisy taking Best of Breed & Best Opposite in Tallinn with Ungus MacGuire taking the top award at Vaasa International over Balloo Girl.

A cluster of shows in Massachusetts saw 2 Best of Breeds for Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea (with a Gp4 at Cheshire KC) over Daulton’s Tupelo Honey of Galore but she flipped it around at Trap Falls by getting the big rosette over him. The big news though are the three Glens showing the brains and putting initials behind their names. Tipperary Sweet Rosie O’Grady got her Canine Good Citizens, Griffin earned his third qualifying score in Rally Excellent with a second place and now adds “RE” to his titles and Niamh became a Master Barnhunt titled girl.

Great going everybody, you all do the breed proud.
