Quieter weekend….

….but Glen of Imaal Terriers (and their people) were still out there.

Midland Counties saw Mike Brown in the centre of the ring, it was the thought of the show that kept him going through his long weeks of chemotherapy and he was so pleased to be able to be there after a “sage nod” from his consultant. Best of Breed was Pajantick Razamataz with Wickholm Breaking Dawn Best Bitch. Jeonty Yippe Kiaye and Jeonty Letty Be Magic taking the respective Reserves. Best Veteran, Johnny Be Good of Romainville, left spectators in no doubt how thrilled he was to be back in the ring again.

Seinajoki (Finland) was a BOB for Cairdiulacht Daibhi MacMiolmor and Gleann Una Noonan was Best Bitch & Best Veteran. Delaware (Ohio) KC saw the breeds only reported Group placement when Daulton’s Ciaran of Pine Meadow was OHG3. Sister Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow was Best Opposite. The 2nd Delaware Show saw Finnabair You Should Be So Lucky take top award. Daulton’s Eili from Emerald Isle was Best of Breed last weekend at both Wenatchee Kennel Club shows and got her first Group placement (Gp4)

Jeonty Letty Be Magic was at Northwich & District Canine Society and had an excellent day with AVNSC Junior, Reserve Best NSC and a 1st in the Junior Stakes.

Karen Forbes was invited to represent the Kennel Club at a meet and greet to show that with care dogs and horses can be in the same place during exercise so Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae went as part of the pack.

Monique reports for the “brains” department:- At an AKC Agility trial on Saturday, Ginny qualified in her first attempt ever in the Open Standard Preferred class and then qualified for the third time earning her title in the Open Jumpers Preferred class!

Congratulations everybody

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!

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
