Staying local for once

It was “The Girls (rather than the boys) are Back In Town” at the Glen of Imaal Terrier Enthusiasts & Fanciers Club Open Show when both Best In Show & Reserve Best in Show went to the ladies in the form of Wickholm Breaking Dawn and Jeonty Mini MeMe. The Best Dogs were Gleann Dynamo Man at Jeonty and Golden Spur. Boudivella Tegan was Best Puppy and Donvaleset Rebus Best Veteran so with the dog food, rosettes, cups, specials and actual real life money on offer quite a few cars returned home with more in than they had started with.

The EFG Open Show is one of the very rare times that 2 shows can be attended for one lot of travelling money and at the “other”, Birmingham Gundog & Terrier, Best of Breed went to Romainville Becks Blue for Zippor, Best Bitch Bregorrey Madam Defiance and once again Best Puppy to Boudivella Tegan

Nice going everybody!

It’s the EFG Open Show this weekend!!!`

Sunday 23rd at the Sports Connexion, Ryton on Dunsmoor, CV3 3FL will be the place to go if you want to see Glen of Imaal Terriers this weekend. The EFG Open Show will begin judging at 9.30am and Birmingham Gundog & Terrier Glen classes will follow in the same ring as soon as the EFG Show is finished.

Finally the Coventry roadworks are being reported as nearly finished and no other traffic problems are being reported (at the moment).

There will be a ring number prize draw after judging has finished so a chance of even more to go home with. The usual bring and share table will be there so nibbles, drinks etc. would be appreciated

Reminder for the weekend.

It’s National Terrier on Saturday so check the show bag to see if you’ve remembered to put the entry in for the EFG Open Show (Sue will be there to collect them) and any membership monies you forgot to give over at Crufts. If you can’t find your EFG Schedule it’s on the website and entries close on April 10th. Karen Forbes is judging.

The EFG Open Show is held alongside Birmingham Gundog & Terrier so you’ll get two bites of the showing cherry for just one set of travelling costs. Jamie Sage is judging Glen of Imaal Terriers at G&T and entries can be given either direct to Rachel Leeson at NT or made online at Fosse Data

Birmingham Gundog & Terrier critique

Glen of Imaal Terriers

Junior: 1) Bendikes Fidelma. Not a bad type, head okay, dark eye, good ear set and carriage. Turns front pasterns tad too much. Coat not at its best but enough coverage & good colour. Would prefer more rise over the loin & had no drive moving out. Excellent temperament.

Post Graduate: 1) Jeonty Yippee Kiaye. Another blue, very good head, eye dark & wide open black nostrils. Ears mostly in repose. Strong forechest, good shoulder & very good padded feet. Hind action okay if a bit zig zag at times. Another one whose coat needs attention.

Open: 1) Gleann Dynamo Man at Jeonty. This is a dog I didn’t care much for as a youngster but my word has he come on. More balanced & more together on the move (tad long hock to heel). Has bodied up well, front assembly very good, head planes correct & ears held nicely. Black nose & good eye colour. 2 years old but all coming together. BOB and Group 2. 2) Donvaleset Rafferty at Viahninns. Shorter coupled dog. Nice head/bite but far too much hair obscuring. Would prefer a tad more length to forelegs, little rise over the loin. Not a bad mover but a bit close behind.

Thank you to exhibitors. Most dogs present needed some ringcraft training and presentation technique. All tremperaments were good.

Pam Aldous-Town (Judge)

Busy weekend for beauty AND brains!

Busy weekend for Glen of Imaal Terrier people with two shows at the same venue on the same day, something well known in the States, but not in the UK. The EFG Open Show was held in the morning and Birmingham Gundog & Terrier in the afternoon with respective entries of just over and just under 30-the Glens giving the biggest entry in the Terrier Group at G&T. EFG Judge Roger Cruden certainly found as type he liked with Best In Show going to Bregorrey Madam Defiance and Best Dog (RBIS) to her brother Bregorrey Wannabe Victory by Jeonty. Their dam Brockland Belle Bregorrey was Best Veteran overall and her brother Brockland Blackadder at Malsville was Veteran Dog Winner. Best Puppy went to Romainville Razzamatazz with her brother, Roaminville Becks Blue for Zippor (nice to see that affix back in the Glen ring) Puppy Dog. The well admired clock went home with Cresta Garner, the ring number draw was won by Jean Rogers and the catalogue prize went to Gee Noone. At Gundog & Terrier Tony Hadley awarded BOB to Romainville Billy Wizz, BOS to Jeonty Maybee Daysee and Best Puppy to Jeonty Mini MeMe who made the cut in the Terrier Group.

At Tallinn Winners2016 BOB was Gleann Cotton Cody with BOS going to Gleann Una Noonan whilst at Vassa International Ungus MacGuire kept the Gleann flag flying with Best of Breed with Pearytail Candy McCoy Best Bitch.

Griffin (Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystoke) continued to show his abilities in the coursing field with getting his 10th & 11th coursing legs and so his Coursing Ability Advanced Title. Monique Oliver writes “What an amazing weekend! Oliver participated in 2 Performance Scent Dogs trials, Saturday in eastern PA and Sunday in MA. He qualified in 5 classes, coming in first in Excellent Exteriors both days, second in Excellent Distance & Excellent Buildings, and third in Advanced Speed earning a title in that class. The big news is my Oliver and another dog became the first dogs to ever earn the overall Advanced level PSD title!!!”

Huge congratulations to everybody
