Nearly the end of October

Admittedly at October draws to a close Glen of Imaal Terrier results aren’t as numerous as the summer months but still some keep out there bringing the breed to view. Last week we applauded 11 year old Johnny Be Good for his BOB well this week the veterans lead in again with 10 year old Donvaleset Brier at Midland Counties. Rock Buster from Romainville was Best Dog with Romainville Rock On Lizzie RBB (and BP) with Romainville Fast N’Furious at Wickholm Reserve Best Dog.

Just one result from Finland, at IDS Seinajoki Best of Breed was Highlanders Dream Casper. Over in the States Delaware Ohio Kennel Club saw Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pines Meadow was BOB and OHG2. Brandon Florida Kennel Club was 2 Best of Breeds for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend with Kilkenny Irish American Classic at Castlerock & Finnabair DD Shut Up & Kiss Me Best Opposites. 7 month old Abberann Lament for Owen Roe was a rising star in Valparaiso where he took Best of Breed(over Champions) and Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta took a Best of Breed & Group 3. Canada saw Gleann Holy Hannah notch up a Group 2 AND a Group 3 at Island Dog Club

Kelli Whitfield sends news of a great coursing and agility weekend “2 FAST AKC Agility Q’s with first place for Griffin plus 4 AKC FAST CAT Q’s which gave Griffin his AKC BCAT! (Cooper earned some ribbons too!)”

Well done all!

Count them…….seven plus two!

Glen of Imaal Terriers aren’t a breed that feature over much in Group top placings but the round up this week brings in an incredible seven!

Arcadia Florida saw a cluster and Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend getting Best of Breed on all four days plus Groups 2, 3 & 4. Best opposite to him was Finnabair Cattskill Goldie. Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette, on his way home back to the north-west, stopped over in Idaho for two Best of Breeds at Lizard Butte Kennel Club & two at Idaho Capital City Kennel Club where he picked up a OHG3 and OHG2. Mad River Valley KC saw another group placement for Glens when Kilkenny’s Middleton of Irish Spirit took OHG4. In New York state Daulton’s Princess C Hatteras took a couple of Best of Breeds and clocked up number seven group placement for Glens with a OHG2.

Jyvaskyla (Finland) was a Best of Breed for Highlander’s Dream Casper with Pearytail Candy McCoy Best Bitch on day 1 & day 2 was a win for Gleann Bigwig. In Germany it was the Bundessieger weekend and big success for the Juniors with both the National and International shows having the same results, Best of Breed Gleann Holly at Spirit of Ireland with Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice Best Dog.

The big road trip over to Montgomery & back (four weeks in total) for the Dairiki boys wasn’t just for exhibition ribbons as Jeff writes “This weekend in Boise Quinn passed four of four master runs at the Valley Barn Hunt trials, earning his RATCHX title (as well as passing two of two crazy 8 runs, earning his CZ8B title.) Ciarán passed both of his master runs yesterday, earning high in class in both.

When you look at the gallery you’ll see a picture that doesn’t seem to fit. It’s Keadeen Second Star to the Right in the Group ring at Montgomery last week, the photograph arrived too late. Even though the top says seven group placements Glens probably had eight as the news has only come in unofficially about one of them……hint…hint if you haven’t sent. Here it is. Welcome to a new name for the weekend round up, Abberann Black Velvet Band by Galore who took 2 Best of Breeds and OHG1 & 2 in Oklahoma so it’s actually a tremendous NINE group placements!!!!!

Brilliant weekend everybody

Glen owners just go on and on.

Glen of Imaal Terrier owners just keep going on and on in showing the world how good our breed is.

Can’t recollect a Romanian result before and as for calling it the Dracula Show…….it was seven Best of Breeds and a Grand Romanian Championship for Pearytail Bonnie B Goode. In Finland Porvoo All Breed Show was a BOB for Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat with Best Opposite Sex going to Marfidal Santa Baby. London & Home Counties Terrier saw Kirikee Celtic Warrior take home the big rosette.

A couple of late results from last week. The St Clairsville KC Cluster ended with Tipperary American Girl taking another Best of Breed and OHG2 with Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore Best Dog. Gleann Holy Hannah took a Group 3 and Best Puppy in Group in Canad and then followed it on with another 3 x Best Puppy in Group this weekend plus a Group 4. Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend was in Oklahoma and added two Group 4s to his increasing tally. Souhegan Kennel Club was a Best of Breed for Briarhill Beatrice. Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta had an excellent weekend at back to back shows in Des Moines, Iowa with a Group 1 & 3. Why is she with a Dachshund in the photograph? Theresa owns it as well and it took BIS so two for her in the Group ring…nice one indeed!

The Barn Hunt aficionados were having a ball.  Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc qualified in Instinct & Novice. Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas gained the last qualifier to get his Open title and then did his first Senior run and earned his first qualifier. Brains and beauty boys.

Congratulations to all

Let’s hear it for everybody

Glen of Imaal Terrier folk certainly believe in getting the breed out there. A weekend in Kentucky for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend results in a full set of Group placements, one through to four. Tipperary American Girl took a couple of days in Ohio and took home 2x Group 4 and one OHG2. Newtown Kennel Club saw Kilkenny’s Best of My Love take Best of Breed. Elm City KC was a BOB for Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney (and an OHG4) and she also took it at Ox Ridge KC.

Over in Europe it was the big Terri-Eri 2017 in Finland where Gleann Curvy Corvette took BOB with brother Cotton Cody Best Dog.  Tervakoski All Breed saw Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo triumph in the breed whilst Rosears Master of The House was BOB at Mantyharju Show and picked up a very nice Group 4. Gleann Holly at Spirit of Ireland took BOB at Ahlen in Germany. Unfortunately no Glens were entered on the Irish circuit, such a shame.

End of July…

…and Glen of Imaal Terrier folk are flying the flag with enthusiasm

First time results from the Split 4 Day Summer Show with some very handsome rosettes, and her Croatian Championship, lifted by Pearytail Bonnie B Goode. Pori International was a Best of Breed for Gleann Ungus MacGuire with Balloo Girl Best Bitch. Ohio saw a four day cluster and results are in for three. Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend featured on all days with 2 Best of Breeds and a Best Opposite and Tipperary American Girl taking one Best of Breed and one Best Opposite with an OHG2 & OHG4. Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow took the other Best Opposite and also a OHG3. At Hurricane Ridge Kennel Club Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas took a Group 1 & 4 as well as 2 owner handler Group1s and an OHRBIS so a nice weekend there!

Monique Anthony sends “Ginny had a fun day at the USCSS (United States Canine Scent Sports) scentwork trial in Westford, MA. She qualified in all 4 of her classes (Novice Interior & Vehicle, and Intermediate Exterior & Container) and earned a 3rd place in Containers.

The Game Fair was down at Hatfield House, Hertford and Glen of Imaal Terriers were there in the Discover Dogs area. Had an email that said “nice to see the Glens there” and just learnt (thanks Nicki) it was the Hanningtons manning the fort as well as the Atkins. Just as important as any dog show.

The Finnish Glen Speciality mentioned last week was far more than just a one day dog show as there was a weekend Glen happening which also included weight pulling, lure coursing, lots of competitions for children etc.

Well done indeed everybody!!

Group placements galore & 30 for supper!

Vermont seems to like Glen of Imaal Terriers. A Group 2 for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend whilst Best Opposite Kilkenny’s Best of My Love took OHG1. Friday friend of a Friend was again BOB with Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney BOS. The star of the day was Finnabair DD Shut Up & Kiss Me who was BP, BPG1 and BPIS. Saturday was Groups again, Friend of a Friend Gp3 and Glen Rooney OHG4. Friend of a Friend again Gp3 on Sunday & once more Rooney Best Bitch. That show was also the scene of triumph for the breed in the 4-6 month puppy with Abberann Whiskey You’re the Devil taking baby Group 1.  In Ohio Tipperary American Girl, besides BOB was awarded OHG1 & OHG2 at two show there. Jeff Dairiki reports that last weekend Ciaran (Keadeen Blue Boy of Bluesette) finished his weekend with 2xBOB, 2xBOS, 4xOHBOB & 1OHG4.

At Hyvinkaa All Breed Show Pearytail Candy McCoy led the Glens with Highlander Dream Casper Best Dog. It was another “lady” who led the way at Sligo when Abberann Reach For The Stars Ruari was BOB over Abberann Conan. At the July Klub Sieger exhibition Best of Breed and Best Veteran was Billy Tow vom Au Deich and  Fear Fiuntair Candy Keva Best Opposite

And finally….how did THE day go at Swineshead? Rather well actually. It was a bit dull but nothing like the rain forecast. The ultimate sin was committed as the cake stall ran out. All the raffle prizes went and 30, yes 30, folk were along the tables for supper. So it was alright then.
