Let’s celebrate….

….Glen of Imaal Terriers doing their thing with their people.

A double show weekend in Ireland with Abberann Phelan having to bow the paw to the ladies at both Munster & Cork. Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore was BOB at the former and Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanna at the latter. At Southern Counties Championship Show Pajantick Star trooper was BOB with Pajantick Rockahula Best Bitch.

The weekend of the Estonian Winners saw Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo and Pearytail Artful Tess both getting the Estonian 2016 title with Milo the nod for BOB. At Tallinn Group Show BOB went to Pearytail Candy McCoy and over the weekend McJakes Angel-Lina become an Estonian Junior Champion. Back in Finland Kuhmo Group Show saw Gleann Easter Eamonn take BOB.

Over in the States Keadeen Blue Boy for Bluesette was 4th in the Group at Yokima Valley KC and Daulton’s Rory also notched up a placement at Toledo KC with a G2 in OH and a G4 in the Terrier group. Ladies Kennel Club (Inc) had Kilkenny Granite Great Gatsby get the nod for BOB whilst at Gateway Terrier Show Abberann Stars and Stripes Ruari¬†became a Champion.

Monique Anthony writes “Oliver qualified and earned first place in the Excellent Speed class yesterday at the Performance Scent Dogs trial in Raymond, NH! The funniest part of the day was when he attacked some Barn Hunt tubes just outside one of the search areas and ran down the clock. Birch, anise or clove hides cannot compete with BH tubes, even if empty”

Applause to you all!!

Some travelled!

Lots of people write Crufts into their planners, the air and ferry fares are still reasonably cheap and a few days can be made of the journey so a wonderful early year break. When you are bringing a dog with you those two words (reasonably cheap) don’t occur. This year Glen of Imaal Terriers had their furthest travelled exhibitor with Theresa and Oscar appearing on the benches, Chicago to Birmingham UK. Also Annette drove down/across with Eamond so the journey, in time, from Sweden must have taken nearly as long the American jaunt. For the first time though there was actually an American bred Glen present, both Oscar and Eamond were doing roots, with Sky taking a very creditable fourth in Limit at only 15 months old.

It was¬†great to see all international visitors and hope the journeys weren’t too traumatic!
