Just wow!!!!

Last week it was easy to decide which Glen of Imaal Terrier should lead the “honour roll” round up and it’s easy this week as well. Please everybody, stand and applaud Billy Tow vom Au Deich who, at the Dutch Championship Show, took Best Dog for the 7th time and Best In Show for the 4th. Oh yes, he was Best Veteran as well. Best Bitch was his kennel mate McJake’s Aivy. Another Veteran Best of Breed was Abberann Conan who added yet another ribbon to his tally at The National. Best Bitch came from the other end of the scale when Jeonty Jyn A New Hope got the nod from Junior. It was worth the trip for the Abberanns as Cosmic Cowboy was Reserve Dog & Reach For The Stars Ryanne Reserve Best Bitch. Best Puppy Amhard Off The Cuff

Nice to hear from Australia where “Neuter” titles are on offer. Taufield Queen of Tara was Runner Up Neuter and Best Neuter at her last two shows which gives her 96 out the 100 points needed. The European Winners in Dortmund saw Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice increasing his reputation with Best of Breed, Fire & Ice Naomi was Best Bitch. In Ireland Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore represented Glens in the Group ring. Gleann is an affix that regularly appears here but this week the first mention is from Canada and Dartmouth Kennel Club with a Group 4 and two Group 2s for Gleann Holy Hannah. Crossing the sea to Scandinavia and Jarvenpaa with Gleann Indico Indy as BOB and Gleann Halloween Hattie Best Opposite. Oulu Nordic Show saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard with the big ribbon and Gleann Halloween Hattie as Best Bitch. Gleann Ho Ho Hogan was Best of Breed at Seinajoki Group Show.

In America at Ravenna Kennel Club Tipperary That Girl was Best of Breed with Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen Best Dog at one show with the results repeated at another but it was G4 for American Girl & BBEG2 for Sailor John. Klanath Dog Fanciers had a back to back set of shows and Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas had a OHG2 and OHG3 whilst Keadeen’s Something Like A Phenomenon was Best Opposite both days but she went one better with a fabulous Puppy Group 1. Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight at Chambersburg KC Shows also registered the Glen in the Group ring with a OHG2 and a G4.

You all do us proud!!!

Glen Association critique

My thanks to the committee for their invitation also to the exhibitors for their entries. I appreciate some had long journeys in uncertain weather conditions at this time of the year.

VD/B (3,1) 1. Harley’s Ch Donvaleset Brier. So much to like about this 10 yr old wheaten bitch with nice outline, proportions, lovely feminine expression with correct bite and dark eye. Good front assembly with ample bone, depth of chest and good angulation front and rear, Still well muscled throughout and in good harsh coat, well presented.  Moved well whilst holding her top line.

  1. Sage’s Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm. A 9 yr old wheaten bitch with a good head, nice feminine expression, dark eye, correct ear set and bite.   Good proportions with correct top line and tail set. In good harsh coat, neatly presented. On the day preferred movement of 1.

MPD (1) Hardy’s Amhard Manhattan. An appealing 6mth old blue youngster with nice outline and proportions, A good head with well defined stop, correct bite, ear set, and dark eye thus giving a lovely expression. Good angulation  front and rear and muscling up well for his age. In good coat, he enjoyed his debut in the ring, moving well with a nice tail carriage. Handled well.

PD (1) Hardy’s Amhard Manhattan

JD (1) White’s Abberann Cosmic Cowboy (IMP USA) A 10mth old blue youngster with pleasing outline and proportions. Skull of good width, correct ear set, dark eye and bite. Good front assembly with ample bone, depth of chest and good angulation front and rear. Well muscled throughout for his age. In good coat, well presented. Moved with drive holding his top line showing a good tail carriage. Pleased to award him BPIS

PGD (1) Pierce’s Rollo The Great. A handsome 20 mth old blue boy with pleasing outline and proportions giving the impression of real strength. Skull of good width with powerful foreface, correct ear set, dark eye and bite. Correct front assembly with strong neck and well boned. Good angulation front and rear, and depth of chest. Well sprung ribs and nicely muscled up throughout with strong hindquarters and good bend of stifle. Moved with drive holding his top line showing a correct tail carriage.  In good coat, well presented. With more handler experience this boy should achieve more awards. Pleased to award him RDCC

LD (1) Hardy’s Amhard Just In Thyme. A 3 ½ year old wheaten male with the impression of substance. Good head with correct ear set, dark eye and bite, giving such an appealing Glen expression. Forequarters stronger than rear with well boned foreleg and correct turn of foot. Shoulders broad and well laid back. In good harsh coat, neatly presented, he lacked enthusiasm on the move today.

OD (4,1) 1. White’s CH, IR, AM & SW CH Abberann Conan. Over the years many superlatives have been said about this 12yr old blue showman and I was delighted to have the opportunity to add my own. He has an excellent outline and proportions giving the impression of strength, essential in a Glen. In good coat, so well presented as always. His gentle expression belies a strong head and jaw with required correct ear set, dark eye and scissor bite. Fit for purpose, he has the desired front assembly and bone with strong hindquarters and depth of chest together with correct angulations. He is still well muscled throughout and commanded the ring with his balanced movement, tail carried gaily. Pleased to award him DCC & BIS

  1. Hannington’s Boudivella Osca A lot to like about this wheaten male of 2 yrs and 10mths, differing in type to 1. He has a pleasing outline with good proportions, and a strong head with correct ear set, dark eye and bite. Desired front assembly, with ample bone, strong neck and good depth of chest. Good angulation front and rear, and well muscled throughout. In good coat and well presented, he moved well with correct tail carriage.

MPB (1) Hardy’s Amhard Mai Tai. A lovely 6 mth old youngster, litter sister to the PD winner. Pleasing feminine head with dark eye and good bite. An appealing expression, used to advantage, making her the exhibit I’d like to have taken home with me. Good front and rear angulation with correct top line and tail set. Muscling up well for her age and in good coat. She enjoyed her debut in the ring and once settled, moved well. Handled sensitively and unfortunate to come against a more mature dog for the puppy challenge.

PB (1) Hardy’s Amhard Mai Tai

JB (1,1a)

PGB (1) Saletti’s Bendikes Fidelma A 2 yr old blue bitch with a pleasing head, correct bite, ear set and  nice feminine expression.  Good proportions but would have liked more angulation and substance. In good coat and neatly presented.  Unsettled on the move but improved later in the bitch challenge.

LB (1) Alstead’s Sigrid Melga At Pantcottage This blue brindle bitch, litter sister to the RDCC winner, has a good outline and correct proportions. Good head, dark eye and correct bite. Correct front assembly, good bone and angulations front and rear. She is well muscled throughout in nice harsh coat but quite sparse on rear pasterns. Moved well with drive keeping her good top line and tail carriage. Maturing nicely and one to watch.

OB (3) White’s IR & NL CH Daulton’s Midnight Sky Of Galore. At almost 4yrs this blue bitch has a solid appearance with good outline and proportions. Correct harsh coat in good condition and well presented. A strong head with correct ear set, dark eye and bite showing a typical Glen expression to her advantage. Correct front, good bone and angulation front and rear with a deep chest, nice spring of ribs, and strong hindquarters.  Fit for purpose, she moved with drive maintaining her top line and tail carriage. Pleased to award her BCC & RBIS

2 Sage’s CH Wickholm Breaking Dawn. At almost 2 yrs there is so much to like about this wheaten bitch, different in type to 1. A good outline and proportions giving the impression of substance. In good harsh coat, well presented. A strong head, with correct bite and dark eye.  Good bone and angulations front and rear, she is well muscled throughout. A deep chest with well sprung ribs and strong hindquarters.  Moved well holding her top line.

Catching up, Group Placings and National Terrier

Kate Flack sends Glen of Imaal Terrier news:- Late report from the large Kentuckiana 4- day cluster in Louisville, Kentucky, March 16 – 19. HG: A big well run show … and though I had hoped for some spring weather, Louisville greeted us with temps in the low 40s – mid 50s … not quite spring weather. Over the 4 days, the BOB awards were split evenly between GCH Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta and GCH Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas. Grand champion points were earned each Keadeen’s Second Start to the Right and GCH Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore, as each had Select three times and once for OS. Finally, a cheer for puppy bitch Abberann Be Brave, who showed with spirit, taking Best of Winners on Saturday and collecting her first point. CONGRATULATIONS to all.

In the UK it was National Terrier and two very pleased exhibitors. Golden Spurs took his first CC and Best of Breed with Wickholm Breaking Dawn taking her second CC. The two Reserves (respectively) were awarded to Romainville Fast’n’Furious at Wickholm & Jeonty Minnie MeMe. Best Puppy was Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage. Over in Ireland it was Portadown and Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore took the BOB award home over Best Dog Abberann Conan. In Finland at Jamikeskus Pearytail Cruella de Gleann (great name) took Best of Breed.

More US news and three Group placings of 1, 2 & 4 for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend at an Oklahoma Cluster. Western Pennsylvania Kennel Association saw Tipperary American Girl take Best of Breed and add to her Owner Handler Group placements with an OHG4 on one day & OHG3 the next. The two Opposites were  her son Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc and half brother Tipperary Columbo.

Kelli & Griffin were also out and about “A lovely clean run for Griffin in standard today so that makes for a new title, NAP! This Q and run are dedicated in memory of Griffin’s sire: GCH Rainbow Springs Wicklows Warrior of Ber-D-Mar; run free at the bridge Big Finn. 😘 XOXO” Finn & Kelli’s run are on YouTube

Brilliant weekend everybody.

A “Winners” session!

The rest of the Northern Hemisphere may be thinking WINTER but dog people, and particularly Glen of Imaal Terrier folk, are certainly out and about.

The Danish Winners was a BOB for Pearytail Artless Tess with McCormac Setna Sithbacc Best Dog. Another Pearytail day at the Norwegian Winners with P Bonnie B Goode getting the nod over Marfidal Rohjaton Pohmu. The Baltic Winners saw Gleann Dynamite Mike taking Best of Breed with Pearytail Bonnie B Goode Best Opposite.

A back to back weekend in Germany had McJake’s Angel’s Son Djuke taking Best of Breed both days with McJakes’s Aivy Best Bitch one day and Mr Dear Fellow Brunhilde de CoCo the other. Back to back ICK shows saw Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore take BOB with Abberann Phelan Best Dog, the results flipped around for day 2. Abberann Conan did Glens incredible proud by being awarded Reserve Best Veteran In Show

The Secretary of the Dutch Glen Club sends the following: Dogshow Bleiswijk brought two Dutch Champions. BOB was My Dear Fellow Billy the Kid McJakes what gave him enough points for the Dutch Championship.BOS was Madra Áthas Aoife Aideen an tSolais who also became Dutch Champion. Well done both!

The States have had, amongst other things, the big cluster in Philadelphia. At Penn Treaty KC Ber-D-Mar Nate the Great at Wicklow was Best of Breed with Tipperary Violet Dowager Countess Best Bitch. Violet was again Best Bitch at Greater Philidelphia Dog Fanciers Association with Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea taking Best of Breed. Kennel Club of Philidelphia was a success again for Nate the Great with Daulton’s Tupelo Honey of Galore Best Opposite. The 4th Show of the cluster saw Tupelo Honey Best Opposite again with Sweet William O’Shea Best of Breed this time.

Down in Florida at Seminole Dog Fanciers and Greater Ocala Dog Club it was an incredible couple of days for Gleann Cotton Cody taking Group 2 and 3 respectively. Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at castle rock was Best Bitch both days. Another Group Placement up at Whidbey Island Kennel Club with a Group 2 for Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right whilst at Coos KC Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette was BOB and also BOBOH Group 2. Umpqua KC was another triumph for Blue Boy and he again was placed second in the Owner Handler Group. Central Ohio KC was a Best of Breed for Kilkenny’s Across the Universe for Setanta with Daulton’s Rory BOS/BOBOH and Owner Handler Group 4

The “Brains Department” was also working well with a Nosework 2 award for Sullivan Lopez and two sets of news news from Monique that Oliver qualified and earned a third place metallic ribbon in the Excellent Distance nosework class on Saturday at the Performance Scent Dogs trial in Raymond, New Hampshire and he also participated in a Performance Scent Dogs trial  and qualified in the Excellent Distance class for the 10th time.  He came in 2nd place (metallic division) and earned a Bronze Metallic Award for his cumulative efforts.

Another busy weekend!

Summer is hopefully here and some Glen of Imaal Terrier exhibitors are celebrating it by getting out and about on the road.

We’ll start in Europe at Sligo (Ireland) and Best of Breed there was Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore with Abberann Phelan Best Dog. In Germany the KfT Klubseigers at Beusheim were der Fellow Ashton de CoCo and Fire & Ice Liberty. In Finland Gleann Una Noonan was BOB and Gleann Cotton Candy Best Opposite at Orivesi whilst at Mantsala Cotton Candy was BOB & his sister Curvy Corvette BOS and both became Finnish Champions.

Over in America THE news is another Best In Show for Glen of Imaal Terriers and this time it was Abberann Torcan who bought honour to the breed at Belvidere and then got a Gp2 the next day. A cluster in Ohio (two Green River KC Shows and one Ashtabula KC) saw numerous Group placings. At Green River 1 Daulton’s Rory was BOB & OHGp4 with Tipperary Cora Countess of Grantham Best Bitch. Ashtabula had the honours reversed with Cora getting the nod and OHGp4 with Rory Best Opposite and Green River 2 finished off a rather good weekend for Cora with another BOB, OHGp3 and Terrier Group 4, Rory was Best Dog to her again. A cluster in Vermont-Two Woodstock Dog Club & two Green Mountain Dog Club had Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore taking 3 Best of Breeds and a Group 4 with Kilkenny Granite Glen Rooney (BOS at Woodstock 1) getting a OHGp4 as well and she then went on to BOB at Green Mountain 2.

Oh yes it was the EFG Funday as well and it went pretty well. Just to wet the appetite today is only a picture of the BIS and the RBIS who was also Best Puppy. There will be more tomorrow!

Well done to everybody for a great weekend-whether flying the flag in the exhibition ring or flying the flag to show how great Glen people are at the EFG day.

Liking the news!

Glen of Imaal Terriers (and their people) are well out & about even though it isn’t Spring yet.

A report from Seattle and news of a difference- the Glen Meet The Breed Booth got an award of merit! The ring awards went to Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette and Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas with a Best of Breed each. The four day Kentucky Cluster had 2 BOBs & 2BOS for GCH Abberann Torcan and the same for GCH Daulton’s Emerald Green in nice entries. At Everglades Terrier the top awards were shared between GCH Kilkenny’s Sullivan of Castlerock & Glentyrs Lady Isabella at Castlerock.

At the Celtic Winners in Dublin BOB was Ch Abberann Phelan with Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Best Bitch and a new Glen to honours with Stiubhard Dobbie taking the Res GS. A little brag from Nick-but we quite understand-on what a family day it was with daughter Susan taking Gp4 with her Maltese and son Colm BOB with his Rottie!

We love Glens with titles at both end of their name and after a Barn Hunting Weekend Laura Trainor reports that Niamh finished in Open with a Qualifier in her first Senior and Kylee had 2 Open Q’s!

Applause, applause!!

It’s a first…and a first..and a first

Top billing today has to go to possibly the greatest Glen of Imaal Terrier ambassador of the moment, that catalogue model, that hunting man extraordinary, that evergreen 15 year old Rainbow Springs Oliver Twist who has just added another title to his repertoire with a Nose Work Element title in INTERIORS from the National Association of Canine Scentwork (NACSW)!!! The trial was held at Camp Harrington in Boylston, MA and he located the hidden birch scent in 4 rooms set in different buildings (in an office, a bathroom, a yurt, and a game room).  Owner Monique says how much he still enjoys “working” and we are so proud of him and his NOSE and she loves being part of his team!! Ber-D-Mar’s Ballygriffin of Greystone, also a definite contender on the ambassador ability front, earned his first qualifying score in Novice Jumpers With Weaves and also a second place! Not to bad for his first time in the agility ring

The Glen Association is the last Championship Show of the year for the breed and it was quite an event for the Whites. Nick, being a total romantic, bought Ann over to a dog show for their Golden Wedding but what a day for them. Abberann Phelan took his 3rd CC and Best In Show and so became the youngest Glen to get made up at a week short of 17months, (taking the accolade from Ch Winni Wanna Make Music By Jeonty at a week over 17 months) sister Dersla took the Reserve Bitch CC and their imported puppy from America, the first US bred Glen to be shown here, Daultons Midnight Sky of Galore took Best Puppy in Show. To finish it all off they even won the rather handsome Christmas cake in the raffle. Judge Don Harley also made up another bitch Champion with Romainville Ellie taking her 3rd CC and BOS In Show. Reserve Best In Show was awarded to the Dog RCC winner Amhard High Flyer.

Well done all.
