Thanks for sending results from Glen of Imaal Terriers around the world but, for once, we’re just staying in the United Kingdom and at just one show. At Darlington Championship Show Peter Bakewell adjudicated and gave the Dog CC (with BOB) to Bregorrey Wannabe Victory by Jeonty with the Bitch ticket going to Bregorrey Madam Defiance. The two Reserve CCs were respectively Donvaleset Liffy at Arkview and Romainville Uptown Girl. Best Puppy was Boudivella Oscar. So why does this need sole billing?
By awarding the two Challenge Certificates to the Glens he did two new Champions were made up and that made an incredible four from one litter, three here and one in America. Brockland Belle Bregorrey was mated, for some, rather late in life-she made up to Champion even later-as a CRD3 test was being waited for due to her pedigree. It can only be mused as to what may have been produced by her if it had happened earlier.
The sire of this now noteworthy litter was also a Veteran but Jeonty Wannabe Buster was a “dog with a record”. Already the sire of 3 Champions, at the time of the mating, as well as being a multi Champion himself it is so, so fitting that Peter took his tally of top progeny to a number that will probably never be equalled for a long time. Such an honoured tribute to a dog that joined “The Family” just three days previous to the show. We congratulate everybody at Darlington but Bussie it is your memory saluted.
A warm congratulations are extended to all the Glen of Imaal Terrier Winners in America, Slovenia, the UK and anywhere else that didn’t send their results!
In the States the Terrier Club of Michigan Cluster is the last big Terrier event before Montgomery and entries are always good. Best of Breed on all three days was Gr. Ch. Coleraine’s Mandalay Royalty who was short-listed in the group on two days and was pulled in Group 2 on the third.
The European Winner’s Show in Slovenia saw Irish Rover’s Sir Brendan Behan being awarded with the 2010 title.
Darlington had Ir Ch Abberann Eilish at Kirikee get the nod for Best of Breed from Amhard Freebooter.
