Weekend roundup

At Welsh Kennel Club judge Mel Hardy awarded the Dog CC (BOB) to Ch Beatrix’s Boy With Windarra from Donvaleset with the Bitch CC going to Romainville Miss Moneypenny. The two Reserves were Romainville Typhoon and Ir Ch Abberann Eilish At Kirikee respectively with Romainville Brannigan at Brockland taking Best Puppy.

The Irish Circuit finished off at Tralee with Int Ch Abberann Conan becoming the only male Glen of Imaal Terrier to take two Green Stars (and Best of Breed). Best Opposite Sex with the Bitch Green Star went to Swedish/Slovenian Ch Abberann Tiffany. Not a bad weekend for that 2005 Abberann litter!

In America at Tioga Kennel Club Ch. Rainbow Springs Dermot took the Veteran Terrier Group

Westminster entry

As Crufts closes the Westminster entry becomes known. Anybody attending the big American Kennel Club Show can expect to see seven Glen of Imaal Terriers. They will be:-

Ch Rainbow Springs Dermot RE NJP,       

Ch Daulton’s Hunter Green,                       

Ch Daulton’s Maeve Of Cill Dara,             

Ch Finnabair Roisin O Tipperary,              

Ch Finnabair Rocket’s Red Glare,            

Ch Rainbow Springs Kylee of Cnoc

Ch Coleraine’s Mandalay Royalty

For the pedigree buffs it is an interesting selection of dogs. Dermot and Kylee are half brother and sister via their dam and Kylee is also half sister to Mandalay Royalty via the sire. Maeve and Hunter’s Green are also half-siblings via their sire and Roisin and Rocket’s Red Glare are brother and sister but a year apart.
