Salute of a breed

ut none of themGlen of Imaal Terrier folk like to think of themselves as family. Compared to so many breeds there are so few of us and however remote a place you are there will be somebody in the world who knows your Glen and its ancestors, will be able to recount stories of a sibling, show photographs of the grandparents. We share your grief when they take that final long walk and the joy that they gave you by being in your life. Whether a beloved companion who had never met another Glen and was only known to you and their breeder or one that appears on here every week and their success is read by hundreds, we are together. Occasionally though a Glen leaves here to join the eternal pack and more is required than just the pause in the day with “what a shame” and last week that occurred when Coleraine’s Mandalay Royalty closed her eyes to Bruce, Rob and Darby and opened them to Berg, Spike, Flynn and all who have gone before.

Her name was Curry, she was a showgirl, she began when very few judges considered the Glen of Imaal Terrier as anything else other than a support act but she quickly moved us onto centre stage. In 2010 she took Best of Breed, and one Best Opposite, at the Montgomery cluster. 2011 she went one better and took all four and was shortlisted in the Group at Hatboro 1, the first time a Glen had done the clean sweep.  Curry was the first Glen to take four consecutive group placements in one weekend and this was when Glens just didn’t get them and before the Owner Handler group came into being. September 2010 saw nine group placements on the trot and by June of the following year she had 27. The list could go on and on but she was more than just a list. She was a friend, she was adored and the breed honours the memory of one of OUR greatest ambassadors.

Fergus (GCH Cill Dara’s Fergus of Daulton) was Best Opposite at Hatboro 1 & 2 and Montgomery.

It’s Montgomery Weekend

The BIG weekend of shows in the USA, as far as Terrier people are concerned, is the cluster now on in Pennsylvania which culminates Sunday with Montgomery. Hatboro 1 has already happened with the Glen of Imaal Terrier Best of Breed and shortlisting in the Group for Curry-GCH Coleraines Mandalay Royalty- and Best Opposite to Fergus-GCH Cill Dara’s Fergus of Daulton.

Montgomery is one of those events that pulls people from all over the world so if you need to talk to a Terrier person this weekend they may not be available.

Sister Act (well half-sisters really)

Over in America G.Ch Coleraine Mandalay Royalty added another first to her increasing portfolio. Curry became the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to take four consecutive Group placements in one weekend. Two Group 4, one Group 2 and then finished the weekend with a terrier Group First. She now has 27 Group Placements; is she the Glen with the most in the world?

Down in Florida Ch Finnabair Song O’My Heart also added to the breed profile with a Group 4.

Many congratulations to both.

And over the weekend..

The Westminster circus began with holding of The Associated Specialties (specialties in over 30 breeds) plus three Group shows for Sporting, Hounds, and for the first time on Westminster weekend, Terriers. The Best of Breed Glen of Imaal Terrier G Ch Coleraine’s Mandalay Royalty did the breed seriously proud with a Group 4 in such high level competition.

Are Open Show results okay? Of course they are but don’t forget to send them. At West Midlands Terrier Best of Breed Glen was Johnny Be Good at Romainville under judge Jason Atkin.
