The European Dog Show is in Belgium this weekend. For anybody interested in seeing what’s what they have released the official programme online. It’s very smart, very professionally done and with some seriously expensive advertising. A guide to all the breeds exhibiting is also in it. Glen of Imaal Terriers are on Sunday, ring 35 in Hall 6 and there is a fine looking DOCKED Glen illustrating what we look like…..if only.
When it’s been a busy weekend for Glen of Imaal Terrier people it always difficult to know where to start; the show, the country, the awards and this pass few days has been a biggie. The coin has come down on awards so first up is Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney with 2 Best of Breeds, 2 Owner Handler Group 2s and a group 4 at Souhegan Kennel Club in New Hampshire. Also in America it was 3 BOBs for Coleraine’s Here Comes The Sun at Westchester, Somerset Hills and Tuxedo Park.
At the European Dog Show in Norway the top award went to Gleann Una Noonan with Gleann Bigwig Best Dog. At the Terrier Speciality held with the show Rosears Humpty Dumpty was BOB. Tampere group Show saw Gleann Dynamite Mike with BOB and Balloo Girl Best Opposite. Vantaa All Breed was a ladies event again with Stiubhard Cutie Pie at Gleann taking Best of Breed with Gleann Dynamite Mike Best Dog. Let’s welcome a Polish result (hopefully more will come) with Salangana Sagittarius BOB at Bialystok International
Well done all!!
Word comes out that the Irish Postal Service will be releasing a limited stamp edition to celebrate the Irish Kennel Club hosting the European Dog Show. Obviously the theme will be Irish Dogs so that means there will be a Glen of Imaal Terrier. Will Homer now be adding model to his CV?
