Tag Archives: Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend

And first in this week goes to……

Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend took a short sojourn in Canada for the Sarnia cluster and returned home with  2 x Group 2, 1 Group 3, 1 x Group 4 and his Canadian Championship.  The first American bred Glen of Imaal Terrier to obtain it. Finnabair DD Ain’t It The Life was also in Canada and collected three Group 4s. In Scotland Bon Accord is the local show for Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae and it was rather a good one for a finish to her puppy career. Puppy Group 1 and first in Vulnerable Breeds. Over in Ireland Abberann Cosmic Cowboy was BOB at Bray.

In Finland Oulu International Show saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard take Best of Breed with Astoreen Best Opposite. It was also the weekend of the Finnish Glen Club Show with a fabulous entry of 51. Best In Show went to Gleann Cotton Cody with Gleann Happy Hippie Best Bitch. Best Veteran was Abberann Fagan with Best Puppy being awarded to Finnabair Broc Rua Arda of Gleann. The Youngest Junior Handlers had a wonderful time!

In America a cluster of shows at West Springfield, Massachusetts, saw some nice Glen entries. Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea was Best of Breed at all four (picking up a Gp4 at Kenilworth KC of Connecticut inc) with Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney celebrating a return to the ring after her litter of ten with 3 x BOS and an OHG4. The other Best Opposite going to Kilkenny’s Midleton of Irish Spirit.

Congratulations everybody

Catching up

Where to start? We like to give great Glen of Imaal Terrier things the first shout so this week it was a toss of the coin and it came down heads so “the boys” are the breed’s lead in guys. Kelli sends news that “Griffin and Winston received their AKC Trick Dog Elite Performer (TKE)  titles! The new Elite Performer title is the highest level trick title and requires the dog to perform 10 tricks from the advanced and performer level tricks with at least 5 props and there must be a story.” It’s a first for Glens and if you want to see just what the boys can do take a look at You Tube The boys weren’t the only brains in action as Monique writes about Ginny “who Q’d in 3 classes at the Performance Scent Dogs trial in CT. She qualified in Advanced Buildings and then did very well in both Advanced Containers classes, earning a 2nd place in the first class and finishing her title in the 2nd class! ”

If the coin had come up tails the first news would have been of Boudivella Osca taking Best of Breed in Switzerland (as well as Utrecht) and so obtaining his International Championship title. Not to be outdone Romainville Uptown Girl and Boudivella Tegan also obtained their Swiss Championships. Not something that usual at all for Glens whelped in the UK. Blackpool Championship Show saw another first for Glens. Romainville Becks Blue for Zippor was Best of Breed with Jeonty Dreams a Dream with Karensbrae Best Bitch & Best Puppy. She was also taken into the YKC Terrier Stakes and won that, a first for Glens? Running with the “blimey we’re good theme” is a Group placing in Holland, again not a usual occurrence, but Jeonty Junior Fire and Ice was nodded to Gp4 at Zwolle.

In Finland Marfidal Santa Baby was BOB with Pearytail Donald Dump Best Opposite (nice entry of 19 Glens) at Kotka whilst in Rovaniemi Gleann Gildea with Nelli annexed the Best of Breed rosette with Glenrosedale Ardal Ridire Ain Ri was Best Dog. Aura Group Show Highlanders Dream Casper took BOB and Gleann Funnyfifi Stiubhard Best Bitch. Salo Dog Show saw Glenrosedale Caireann Chasdubh as Best with Breed with Hammersmolles Rocket Saturn Best Opposite Sex.

In America Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend has been having a great run. Over a couple of weeks he took 3x Group 2, one Group 3 and 2x Group 4. The results from the Tampa cluster saw Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic of Castlerock Best Opposite to him. Western Pennysylvania KA was a triumph for Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore and Echo Hills KC of Ohio saw Finnabair Broc Rua Pegasus with Shorlyne Best of Breed. And finally another tremendous US KC name. Please let Lewiston-Auburn Kennel Club of Maine be as good as it’s name. Glendalough’s Fergus O’Quinn wasn’t really bothered though as he took Best of Breed. From Clackamas KC (Oregon) Jeff Dairiki sends Ciarán, Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette, had a great weekend going BOB both days.  Saturday’s judge was Linda Wells. Sunday he went on to place fourth in the Terrier group under judge Lorraine Bisso.  Ciarán also completed three qualifying master Barn Hunt runs, earning his RATCHX5! Stella, Keadeen’s Second Star to the Right, went BOS both days.  Chance, Keadeen’s by Happy Chance, went WD/BOW on Saturday; Tristan, Keadeen’s Happy Go Lucky, took WD/BOW on Sunday.  Lulu, Keadeen’s Luck be a Lady, went WB both days. Quinn, Kilkenny’s Love and Happiness, was awarded select dog both days.” Kate Flack has also been busy “The bifurcated 2018 Montana ‘death circuit’ is behind us …10 show days in 12 days. Stamina is Emmet’s (Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas) middle name! He brought home 3 Terrier Group rosettes (two Third Place and 1 Fourth Place) along with seven NOHS group placements (3 OHGr 1’s, 2OHGr 2s and 2OHGr3).” 

Great session everybody and, as usual, you all do the breed proud!

Oh we were busy!!!

Bank Holiday weekend so extra time for Glen of Imaal Terrier people to go showing and, boy, we sure did! There are a lot of results with a bunch from Scandinavia/Lithuania. If eyes crossed when writing them up just let me know.

Leading in with Bath Championship Show and applause for Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage who was BOB but more importantly it was her 3rd CC. Dog CC went to Romainville Becks Blue for Zippor with Romainville Whistle Dixie and Boudivella Osca taking the respective Reserves. Jeonty Glynis Making Magic For Zippor was Best Puppy & Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm Best Veteran.

The Helsinki Puppy Show saw Finnabair Broc Rua Arda at Gleann be awarded BOB with Meomodo Careless Cuinn Best Opposite. Joensuu International was atriumph for Finnabair North American Nebulon with Rosears Miss Miimos Best Bitch. The places were reversed at Joensuu All Breed Show the next day. Moleti International Dog Show saw Rosears Master of the House Best of Breed and Astoreen Best Opposite. Rauma Dog Show went to Gleann Indico Indy and BOS was Taramont Niamh Tirnan’Og. At the Lithuanian Terrier Club Show Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard was Best with Astoreen Best Bitch. Salo Group Show had Hammersmolles Rocket Saturn getting the nod for the big ribbon.

Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend just has to lead the American round up with Groups 1 & 3 at back to back Bayou Kennel Club shows & then a Gp1 at Southern Arkansas KC. The Owner Handler Group was also seeing “Glendom” with a Group 1 for Tipperary That Girl at Trumbull County KC, OHG3 at Altoona Area Kennel Association and a repeat OHG3 at Newcastle KC. Holland Michigan Kennel Club saw another Glen Group placing for Abberann Phelan (Gp3) with Kilkenny’s Across The Universe at Setanta taking Best Opposite, the placings were reversed at Grand Rapids Kennel Club. Phelan was again BOB at Kalamazoo KC with Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore Best Opposite, Best owner Handler and OHG4. Hendersonville Kennel Club back to back shows had Kilkenny’s Middleton Irish Spirit taking BOB at both with another BOB at Spartanburg KC with Kilkenny’s Quandarry at Parrsons BOS.

The UK is really the only country that still has a lot of Open Shows and that (to many US & FCI) strange thing known as Varieties. To show a Glen of Imaal Terrier in those classes is to have conviction. Jeonty Dreams A Dream at Karensbrae was at Banff, Moray & Nairn Canine Club and bought home BAVNSC Terrier and G2, she also won Special Terrier Puppy, 1st in junior stakes, 4th in members stakes and 4th in The Mary McCance stakes.

Great going everybody!!

Let’s applaud ourselves…we deserve it!

Let’s start the Glen of Imaal Terrier round up for this last weekend in the UK with the EFG Open Show. It continued the “double theme” of National Terrier with both Best Dog & Bitch going to the same kennel. Golden Spurs was Best Dog (and Best In Show) with Romainville Billy Whizz Reserve Best Dog who also took Reserve Best In Show. Best Bitch (and Best Opposite in Show) went to Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage over Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm as Reserve Bitch with Lola, at one month short of 10, taking Best Veteran. Best Puppy was Jeonty Glynis Making Magic at Zippor. The EFG is held in conjunction with Birmingham Gundog & Terrier-the only time currently that Glen people can show twice in one day under two different judges-with Boudivella Osca taking Best of Breed there and Jeonty Jyn A New Hope Best Bitch. Also a Glen was performing in the very competitive NSC classes with Kingcottage Boogie on Basil taking Best NSC at Llanelli and District Canine Society Open Dog Show .

A quick flip west to Ireland for the Mid West Champ Show and Best of Breed Abberann Cosmic Cowboy. East to mainland Europe and Latvia with a BOB for Marfidal Pleasant Surprise and then Lithuania for their National All Breed Show and Finnabair North American Nebulon who took home the BOB rosette. Not often results from the Czech Republic so excellent to hear that Sachem Sagittarius was BOB at Budejovice. Coming back this way again, to Antwerp, it was Jeonty Junior Fire and Ice flying the breed flag there to BOB.

Way west to the States and here are the Group placers. Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas was BOB, and Group 2, at Palouse Hills Dog Fanciers with half sister Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right Best Opposite and the result was the same for the second show and Lewis Clark Kennel Club.  Western Carolina Dog Fanciers Association saw another  2 Group placements, Gp 1 & Gp4, for Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend. News of a Terrier Puppy Group 1 at the Central Ohio KC Puppy Match for Finnabair Broc Rua Pegasus with Shorlyne. Columbia Terrier and Old Dominion KC of Northern Virginia saw double Best of Breed for Tipperary Columbo with Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskills Comedy Tonight Best Opposite at both. Columbo was again BOB at Baltimore County KC. A Baby Puppy Group 1 for Kilkenny’s The Gift Outright to Irish Spirits at Central Ohio KC.

Breed brains were doing well and Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae got her entry into The Good Citizen class at shows by qualifying at 8 months old. Kelli Whitfield sends news that “Griffin played NADAC agility on Friday. He earned his first Open Touch N Go qualifying score and first place as Winston cheered him on! Monique sends word “Ginny earned her first Q and placed first in a Novice Preferred Jumpers class at an AKC Agility trial this weekend!!!”

People, you are just amazing!!

Blimey, we’re good.

Sometimes a show just has to start the Glen of Imaal Terrier catch up and this is one of those weeks; National Terrier. It’s considered one of the highlights of the terrier world and folk were there in force and it was a double, double result. Best of Breed and Best Opposite to the same owner with the two Reserves to the same owner…..and there was getting on for 40 years in the breed difference between them so ably illustrating that it is possible to do well with a Glen whoever you are. Something else was gloriously illustrated as well; Glens just get better and better as they get older. In possibly the majority of breeds animals of 10 & 12 wouldn’t be considered for serious showing. As there was no veteran class these mere youngsters were entered with everybody. One stood second between a two and three year old and the other swept all before him as he took the Dog ticket and BOB. Abberann Conan had one of the ultimate compliments paid by a judge who happened to be walking by the ring “that can’t be Homer surely!” To be recognised and known by his call name, that’s the way to go. Bitch CC to him was his kennel mate Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore which gave her the CH to add to the others at the front of her name. The two reserves went home in the proud pocket of Jane Alstead with the awarding to her Golden Spurs and Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage. Best Puppy went to Jeonty Dreams a Dream with Karensbrae who earned extra kudos for Glens with a 4th in the Puppy Stakes as well as a placing in the YKC Handling.

The Pearytail D litter debuted at the Kotka Puppy Show weekend and had rather a successful time. Pearytail Donald Dump took BOB both days over his sister Pearytail Dillion Dollar Baby and then topped it with a Group 3 and a Group 4. Sundsvall (Finland) saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard take home the Best of Breed rosette. Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat was having a trip to Lithuania and took Best of Breed both days as well as being shortlisted in the Group on Day 1. My Dear Fellow Cordula The Angel was BOB & BP at Dresden whilst Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice was picking up the applause at the International Show in Luxembourg.

Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend had a great cluster in Alabama. Group 1 both days at Tuscaloosa KC with Group 2 & 1 at the Birmingham KC shows. Be-D-Mar Sweet William took a G4 at Trap Falls KC and Abberann Lament for Owen Roe was at Packerland KC over Easter and took Group 4.

Lots of “beauty” but the brains of the breed were also on the go over the weekend when Ginny added another title to the back of her name so BCAT (AKC Fast CAT-100 yard Coursing Ability Test) joins the rest

National Terrier is often on Easter weekend but this year it was missed by a week. Nicki Montford said she would “provide cake” in honour and what a creation it was. Chocolate cake, with more chocolate cake and decoration of mini eggs and crème eggs. Suffice to say none of it returned home with her. Thanks Nic, it was greatly appreciated. Over the years Glen of Imaal Terrier owners have fought a long battle on how the name is spelt, it’s part of owning the breed, but jaws dropped when arriving at the benching area at National Terrier. The first Championship Show to gives us classes, the show that terrier folk go to and there it was….Glen of IMMAL. The Chairman and Secretary of NT, when the matter was bought to their attention, both swore innocence and said there would be spelling and breed awareness courses introduced before next year. We expect nothing less!

Great weekend everybody.

Celebrating Group Placements (again)

We’ll start off in Europe as usual and what a start in Finland. At Lahti 2 day International Show Gleann Cotton Cody was Best of Breed, Gleann Una Noonan Best Bitch, but then he went onto Group 1 and BIS 4!!! Is there any Glen of Imaal Terrier that has done so well in Europe? Marfidal Devil’s Rock was in Estonia and took BOB there.

A belated result from Australia. Taufield Queen of Tara was Neuter BOB and then was Neuter Runner Up in Group. Another Group notch in his belt to Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend with a couple of Group 3s in Florida, with Finnabair You Should Be So Lucky taking an OHG3, and Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock was in North Carolina for a run of Best of Breeds, Cary & Alamance KC amongst them. Jeff Dairiki sends news from the two-day Peninsula Dog Fanciers Club cluster in Bremerton, Washington.  Seven Glens (1-2-3/1) showed each day.On Saturday, March 24, under judge Marjorie Underwood, Ciarán (GCHB Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette CAA RATCHX3 CZ8B) took BOB/BOBOH and went on to an owner-handler group 1.  Eili (Daulton’s Eili from Emerald Isle) BOW, Stella (GCHB Keadeen’s Second Star to the Right) BOS, Quinn (CH Kilkenny’s Love and Happiness CA SE RATCHX3 CZ8S) took Select Dog, and Miles (Keadeen’s Kind of Blue) WD. Sunday, March 25, under judge Charlotte Patterson, Stella took BOB, Miles BOW, Emmet (GCHB Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas CA RATS) BOS/BOBOH on to owner-handler group 3, Ciarán SEL, and Lulu (Keadeen’s Luck Be a Lady) WB.

Gleann Holy Hannah took a Group 2 in Canada so an excellent weekend for the Gleann kennel!

The UK has Any Variety Not Separately Classified which means all the dogs from the various groups show together. It can be daunting but sometimes Glens can do it as ably illustrated by Jeonty Glynis Making Magic for Zippor who was Best NSC at Oswestry.

Great weekend everybody!!

..and we’re back!

What have we missed? It must have been something good as there were over 600 visitors on the 9/10 of February. If you were one of them do let us know what you were looking for-we still might be able to help.

Well “the biggie” of the AKC is gone and done with a triumph for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend. Taylor had certainly had a good run pre the event with two Group 4s and numbers 15 & 16 Group 1s. He celebrated his Westminster win with two Group 2s and a Group 3 on his return to Florida. Best Opposite to him in New York was Tipperary American Girl. Ber-D-Mar Sweet William o’Shea was picking up BOBs all over but the best named place must surely be Northern Neck KC of Virginia! Kate Flack was also out with Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas notching up 3 x BOb as well as 2 Owner Handler placements.

Finland doesn’t stop for the darker months. Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat was busy picking up Junior Championships in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. At Turku International Dog Show Best of Breed was awarded to Gleann Una Noonan with Rosears Master of the House Best Dog. Lahti Puppy Show saw Madra Athas Ceinlys Chead Ghra took a tremendous Group 2 award. Kajani Show was a BOB for Finnabair North American Nebulon with Pearytail Bonnie B Goode Best Bitch.

We weren’t as quiet as we usually are with Manchester now being in the “closed” period. Best of Breed was Boudivella Tegan with Romainville Becks Blue with Zippor Best Dog. Pajantick Hot Totty was Best Puppy. West Midlands Terrier had Jeonty Minnie MeMe BOB, Golden Spurs Reserve Best of Breed and Jeonty Letty Be Magic Best Puppy. Sporting Terrier of Yorkshire saw Amhard High Flyer getting the nod for Best of Breed and Amhard Manhatten was Reserve as well as Best Puppy. There aren’t a lot of Glen of Imaal Terriers in Scotland so showing is done in the highly competitive Variety classes but Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae is certainly getting noticed. A Puppy Group 4 was excellent but then at Coatbridge, Airdrie & District BAVNSC Terrier, Terrier G1, Terrier Puppy G1 and Best Puppy In Show were all added to her precocious bow.

Jeonty Junior Fire and Ice was “The Man” in Eindhoven and he did it again at Gent as well as being pulled in the Group. Boudivella Osca also made the trip over and as Junior is still that, a junior, he picked up the CACIB.

The brains of the breed were not being rested. Quite a few Rally qualifications have been won but two ladies send the BIG news for Glens.Ginny spent two recent weekends having fun at AKC Scent Work trials.  She finished her Novice Buried & Interior titles to add to her already completed Exterior & Container titles, becoming the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to earn an overall AKC Scent Work Novice (SWN) title!  She also earned a Container Novice Elite title (SCNE) by qualifying for the 10th time in that class. Qualifying runs were also received in the Advanced Interior & Advanced Exterior classes (4th place)!   Louise sends news of Tula “Here’s to Tula who earned her Elite Division Level 1 Nose Work title today-another first for Glens. She makes me proud every day”.

Very well done and huge congratulations!! Don’t forget to send along anything you think may be of interest to the worldwide Glen family.
