Certainly a BUSY weekend!!

The biggie in the Glen of Imaal Terrier world this last weekend, as it is for any show terriers, is the group of shows known as the Montgomery Cluster. The 4 day event starts off with Hatboro 1, then Hatboro 2, Devon and finally Montgomery Terrier Show itself. Starting in Finnabair DD Ain’t It The Life was BOB over her brother Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend, her son Finnabair You Should be So Lucky was Best of Winners. Hatboro 2 also went the way of the ladies with Kilkenny’s Across The Universe At Setanta over Friend of A Friend once more. Gleann Damn Daisy took BOW. Devon was a reversal of the Hatboro 1 top placings-Friend of A Friend over Ain’t It The Life- with Damn Daisy again Best of Winners. Montgomery (with the GITCA Specialty) finished off the weekend with a repeat of the Devon results and Finnabair You Should Be So Lucky once again Best of Winners. America is one heck of a big country though and other Group placings were being recorded. Abberann Phelan was Group 3 at Greater Omaha Terrier Association & Abberann Lament for Owen Roe Gp4 at Cornhusker KC of Lincoln Nebraska. Canada also saw two Group placements (2xGp3) with Abberann Derbla at Nipissing KC.

In Germany My Dear Fellow Cordula The Angel was BOB at Rostock and on the following day repeated her win at the Klub Fur Terrier Show. At that show Spirit of Ireland Batida de CoCo was Best Veteran and then won the Veteran Group! In Finland at Tuulos Group Show Gleann Gildea with Nellie took Best of Breed with Best Opposite Sex going to Gleann Ho Ho Hogan. Two days of showing in Ireland and once again it was the lady to the fore on day one with Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore taking BOB over Golden Spurs. Day 2 Sky had to bend a paw as her kennelmate Abberann Conan pipped her for Best of Breed. South Wales Kennel Association means just two shows left with CCs for Glen of Imaals before the end of the year. At SWKA Boudivella Osca was the man over Jeonty Jyn A New Hope who took her third ticket and Best Opposite Sex. The two Reserves being Romainville Rock A Fella, who was also Best Puppy & Amhard Mai Tai.

“Brains” have also been in action. Laura Trainor writes We are competing at the Montgomery Terrier Agility trials. There is a competition for best breed “village” with the theme of the old west. The Mini Schnauzers had a photo booth to benefit their rescue. Unfortunately, Niamh was able to make use of their reasons to be WANTED for her standard run.  She redeemed herself in her Jumpers run, qualifying under judge Pamela Sturtz. This Q was her 75th lifetime qualifying Master Jumpers With Weaves run, earning her the title Master Jumpers Preferred Gold! Later in the day she also qualified in Master Barn Hunt. Good Girl Niamh! and from Monique Anthony:-Ginny participated in AKC Agility trials this past weekend and qualified twice in the Novice Standard Preferred class and once in the Open Jumpers Preferred class, placing first or second each time.

The full Montgomery results have arrived: Glen of Imaal Terrier Club of America National Specialty. Breeder-Judge Bruce Sussman. Sweeps Judge longtime breeder Maura High. BOB GCHS Finnabair Double D Friend Of A Friend BOS Ch Finnabair DD Ain’t It The Life WD/BOW/BPSW Finnabair You Should Be So Lucky WB/AOM Gleann Damn Daisy Select Dog GCHS Keadeens Sir Emmet Mingus Glas Select Bitch and Best Bred By GCh Daulton’s Caiomhe of Pine Meadow AOM Ch Berdmar Sweet William O’Shea AOM Ch Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight Best Puppy Finnabair Phoenix Rising At Shorlyne Best Veteran Sweeps Ch Niamh of Cnoc

Catching up

Championship, Open, Breed, Variety, Brains & serious socilising..Glen of Imaal Terriers have been doing their stuff this weekend.

Where to start this weekend? Finland as the breed’s fabulous Veterans are saluted. At Hyvinkaa Group Show Gleann Una Noonan was Best of Breed, Best Veteran & Group 3. marfidal Rain Dance was Best Opposite Sex to her. In Tallinn Rosears Master of the House was BOB whilst at the Danish Winners Gleann Gildea with Nelli was Best of Breed and Gleann Ho Ho Hogan Best Dog. The Danish Club Specialty Show on the following day had Abberann Celtic Princess in the top spot with Gleann Ho Ho Hogan Best Dog.

A bit quieter weekend in America (people getting prepared for Montgomery perhaps) but still Group placements.  Two Group 2s for Kilkenny Across The Universe at Setanta at Sheboygan and a OHG4 for Tipperary That Girl who was Best Bitch to Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friends BOB at Butler County who Himself then took a Group 2 at the second Butler County Show. West Volusia KC saw Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock take Best of Breed.

Glens were in varieties in the UK and most successfully. Boudivella Osca was at Bedfordshire Canine Society where he took Best NSC, Group 4 and 1st in the Vulnerable Breed Stakes. Up in Scotland Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae was at Perthshire CC and was rewarded with a Group 1 placement from NSC Terrier.

Monique writes that “Ginny earned her AKC Advanced Interior Scent Work title on Sunday.  This title combined with the 3 earned last weekend in Advanced Buried, Container, and Exterior completes the requirements for her overall Scent Work Advanced (SWA) title!” and the Dutch Glen Games in the Netherlands were evidently a total blast and the NE Glen Gathering in Massachusetts had a wonderful time practising sociability for their big 25th next year!

Great weekend everybody.

And this weekend….

…Glen of Imaal terrier folk were out and about as usual.

In the UK Darlington saw a new Champion and one starting on the path when Boudivella Osca took his 3rd CC and Best of Breed with Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae taking her first CC. The two Reserves were Golden Spurs and Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage. Donvaleset Brier was Best Veteran with Abberann Running Down a Dream Best Puppy. Over in Finland Oulu Show had Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard take BOB and Astoreen Best Bitch.

Quite a few Group placings happening in America. At Lehigh Valley KC Show Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc was OHG2 and at Licking River KC (love that name) Daulton’s Ciaran of Pine Meadow was OHG3 and G2 with sister Daulton’s Caoimhe Best Bitch. Remarkably at the second Licking River they swopped places with Caoimhe getting exactly the same OHG3 and G2! At both Cape Cod KC and South Shore Kilkenny’s Best of My Love was Best of Breed with Kilkenny’s Stopping By Woods Best Opposite and Puppy Group 3 at Cape Cod. At the Sunday Show Kilkenny’s Glen Rooney was BOB and OHG3 with Stopping By Woods again Best Opposite. In Canada at Oakville & District KC Abberann Derbla was Group 2.

The Midland Game Fair was held at Weston park and the breed was there. Thanks to everybody who supported. Ginny was showing the breed’s prowess in the Brains Department with 3 new AKC Scent Work titles this weekend:  Advanced Buried, Advanced Container, and Advanced Exterior!  She also dramatically qualified in her first Excellent Buried class by finding the 3rd and final target odor with less than 4 seconds to spare. 

Congratulations everybody

Let’s applaud ourselves…we deserve it!

Let’s start the Glen of Imaal Terrier round up for this last weekend in the UK with the EFG Open Show. It continued the “double theme” of National Terrier with both Best Dog & Bitch going to the same kennel. Golden Spurs was Best Dog (and Best In Show) with Romainville Billy Whizz Reserve Best Dog who also took Reserve Best In Show. Best Bitch (and Best Opposite in Show) went to Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage over Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm as Reserve Bitch with Lola, at one month short of 10, taking Best Veteran. Best Puppy was Jeonty Glynis Making Magic at Zippor. The EFG is held in conjunction with Birmingham Gundog & Terrier-the only time currently that Glen people can show twice in one day under two different judges-with Boudivella Osca taking Best of Breed there and Jeonty Jyn A New Hope Best Bitch. Also a Glen was performing in the very competitive NSC classes with Kingcottage Boogie on Basil taking Best NSC at Llanelli and District Canine Society Open Dog Show .

A quick flip west to Ireland for the Mid West Champ Show and Best of Breed Abberann Cosmic Cowboy. East to mainland Europe and Latvia with a BOB for Marfidal Pleasant Surprise and then Lithuania for their National All Breed Show and Finnabair North American Nebulon who took home the BOB rosette. Not often results from the Czech Republic so excellent to hear that Sachem Sagittarius was BOB at Budejovice. Coming back this way again, to Antwerp, it was Jeonty Junior Fire and Ice flying the breed flag there to BOB.

Way west to the States and here are the Group placers. Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas was BOB, and Group 2, at Palouse Hills Dog Fanciers with half sister Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right Best Opposite and the result was the same for the second show and Lewis Clark Kennel Club.  Western Carolina Dog Fanciers Association saw another  2 Group placements, Gp 1 & Gp4, for Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend. News of a Terrier Puppy Group 1 at the Central Ohio KC Puppy Match for Finnabair Broc Rua Pegasus with Shorlyne. Columbia Terrier and Old Dominion KC of Northern Virginia saw double Best of Breed for Tipperary Columbo with Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskills Comedy Tonight Best Opposite at both. Columbo was again BOB at Baltimore County KC. A Baby Puppy Group 1 for Kilkenny’s The Gift Outright to Irish Spirits at Central Ohio KC.

Breed brains were doing well and Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae got her entry into The Good Citizen class at shows by qualifying at 8 months old. Kelli Whitfield sends news that “Griffin played NADAC agility on Friday. He earned his first Open Touch N Go qualifying score and first place as Winston cheered him on! Monique sends word “Ginny earned her first Q and placed first in a Novice Preferred Jumpers class at an AKC Agility trial this weekend!!!”

People, you are just amazing!!

Still getting the name out!

Glen of Imaal Terrier folk are still getting the name of the breed out and about. Pride of place this week has to go to the latest, and youngest, member of the “shout out” team. Finnabair Broc Rua Arda of Gleann was in Estonia at her first show and only went on to take Best Puppy and then Best Baby Puppy in Show! Also in Estonia at the Tallinn Winners Cairdiulacht Daibhi MacMiolmor was Best of Breed over Pearytail Bonnie B Goode. At the Terrier Specialty the following day Daibhi had the bow the paw as Madra Athas Ceinlys Chead Ghra was Best of Breed. In Finland at Vaasa International Dog Show Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard was Best of Breed with BOS being awarded to Gleann Dear Dandelion. Utrecht International Dog Show saw Boudivella Osca being awarded Best Dog & BOB with Boudivella Tegan Best Opposite.

In America Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right was at Moses Lake for BOB and Group 3. Jeonty Golden Memo was at a cluster of shows in California and took Best of Breed at both Northern California Terrier Association Shows as well as Sacremento KC.

Griffin was showing another talent by doing 5 AKC FAST CAT runs. FAST CAT is a timed 100 yard run with the dog chasing a mechanically operated lure. 19 miles and hour is going some in a short legged breed!

Congratulations everyone!
