Incredibly busy few weeks!!

Glen of Imaal Terrier people never stop; new titles, new Champions, Group placings, even a Best Puppy In Show, it’s been a great few weeks.

There has been a lot of beauty but also there has been a lot of brains. Monique sends news that “Ginny had fun at the Performance Scent Dogs (PSD) trial on Saturday, qualifying in 4 out of 5 nosework classes and earning a title in Novice Containers. Also Ginny qualified for the third time in the Novice Barn Hunt class, earning her RATN title! She then moved up to the Open class for the afternoon trial and was successful again. Both of her runs were first place finishes also!” Also a celebration of (one) new title for Glens when Bregorrey Sovereign Storm added a CBAT to the end of his name by titling in the Fast CAT. Stormy was clocked at an incredible 22 mph! The American Kennel Club has just introduced a Trick Dog title. The all performing pair of Winston & Griff are the first two Glens to be awarded the titles.

Lets go showing: At WELKS Romainville Billy Whizz was nodded to BOB with Romainville Jean Genie Best Bitch and at The National Romainville Fast N’furious At Wickholm was Best of Breed with Romainville Fade To Grey BOS and getting made up to Champion. Over in Ireland Abberann Conan took home the big rosette from both South Tipperary and Fermoy, Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore & Abberann Reach for the Stars Ryanne were the respective Best Opposites. At the Dutch Glen Club Show Best In Show was Cairdiulacht Breanainn MacAngus with McJake’s Aivy Best Bitch

Fabulous news of a Best Puppy in Show for Meomodo Bohos Trick or Treat and Highlanders Dream Casper added to his BOB list (and took Group 4) with Gleann Funny Fifi Stiubhard Best Bitch. At another show Gleann Bigwig was The Man with Pearytail Candy McCoy Best Opposite. Salo Group Specialty had Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo BOB with Taramont Niamh Tirnan’Og BOS and Best Veteran. In Estonia Gleann Eager Edgar took two Best of Breeds and his Estonian Championship.

Canadian news and Abberann Phelan has started his career there with a Group 4, Group2 & Group 1-some debut indeed. First news (I think) from Idaho, at the Palous Hill Dog Fanciers back to back shows Keadeen Second Star to the Right took 2 BOBs and Gp 1 to become a Grand Champion. Kilkenny Across the Universe at Setanta added a Gp3 & 4 to her tally and Finnair Double D Friend of a Friend took four Best of Breeds and a Gp4 at Trenton & Bucks County Shows. His Best Opposites were Tipperary American Girl, Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskills Comedy Tonight & Daulton’s Tupelo Honey of Galore twice. Tipperary American Girl took her own Best of Breeds at Columbia Terrier Association of Maryland & Old Dominian KC of North Virginia where her son Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc was Best Dog. American Girl was Best Opposite again, but this time at Ber-D-Mar Nate The Great of Wicklow at Baltimore County KC. Daulton’s Tupelo Honey of Galore was also notching up the BOBs at Springfield KC, Pioneer Valley KC and South Windsor.

Terrier Club of Michigan saw Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore take BOB with Abberann Be Brave Best Opposite. Fort St Clair Kennel Club (another great KC name) had back to back shows with Kilkenny’s Middleton of Irish Spirits taking BOB both times and a OH3. Klamath Dog Fanciers had a weekend of shows with Keadeen Blue Boy of Bluesette taking BOB twice and OH4 one day with Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas getting the big rosette the other two days. Finishing off with another Group placement, this time from Abberann Derbla at St Hubert KC.

All these fabulous Glen of Imaals in the ring would only have been seen if you were at the shows. Getting the breed out and about to people is just as important and at the London Pet Show Leia, Reilly, Dylan, Candy, Toby and their respective humans flew the flag with honour!

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.

Soon be March….

…..and exhibiting will begin in earnest for many. Glen of Imaal Terrier people are still out and about with their dogs though. At Devon & Cornwall Terrier Romainville Freddie’s Choice was Best of Breed whilst that award went to Amhard Lightening Flash at Sporting Terrier of Yorkshire. Meomodo Fantabulous Amy took a Baltic trip and picked up rosettes from Latvia & Lithuania.

Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend left the cold weather of New York to travel back to Florida and picked up (at least) 4 Best of Breeds and one Group 4 placing at Okaloosa Kennel Club.

Canada recently recognised Glens so welcome to the first news from there. Gleann Holy Hannah on her first weekend showing took Best Baby Puppy In Show. What a start to a career!

Kelli had a superb weekend with her boys:-“Closing out our three day funtastic weekend with: 1 barn hunt master Q For Winston with second place; 3 CAT Q’s for Cooper with new CA title. 6 FAST CAT Q’s and new BCAT title for Cooper. 2 standard agility Q’s for Griffin, 2 FAST CAT Q’s for Griffin, 6 CAT Q’s For Griffin’s CAX!!!!! 🏆 some ribbons are missing. So much accomplished this weekend!! We had some great JWW runs but not in the green ribbons this time. So proud of team terrier and so fortunate to have spent such an amazing weekend with my 🐶 dogs!”

Bregorrey Sovereign Storm was also on “brains brigade” by earning his Canine Good Citizen award and returning some very fast times in a coursing test.

Congratulations everybody and needing a lie down just reading about Kelli’s activities.

Eukanuba Week

It’s an American Glen of Imaal Terrier round up week as, whilst the rest of the world settles down a little for Christmas, the US show scene decamps to Florida for the big Eukanuba week.

Tuesday was Space Coast KC of Palm Bay with a Best of Breed for Kilkenny’s Across The Universe at Setanta and Gleann Cotton Cody Best of Winners and Best Opposite Sex. Wednesday was Brevard Kennel Club and Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend took BOB with Finnabair Shorlyne Summer in the Caatskills BOS. Daulton’s Rory was BOBOH and then took Number 1 in the Owner handler Group. Thursday saw two new Champions with Cotton Cody taking BOB (he was first shown in October at Montgomery) and 10 month old Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadows getting the nod for Best Bitch.

The big event was the weekend with Terriers on the Sunday. The major results were a repeat of Tuesday with Kilkenny Across The Universe at Setanta Best of Breed and Gleann Cotton Cody Best Dog. Select Dog Finnabair Double D Friend Of A Friend and Select Bitch
Daulton’s Princess C Hatteras. Best of Winners Finnabair Caatskill Lightning On The Shorlyne

The UK has Discover Dogs and the AKC has Meet The Breeds-the Glen booth was awarded 3rd place in the Terrier Group competition.

Finally Monique writes:-Oliver qualified for the third time and earned a title in the Excellent Buildings class at a Performance Scent Dogs trial on Sunday.  This completed the requirements (3 qualifying excellent runs in each of 5 elements-Buildings, Exteriors, Containers, Distance, Speed) for the Scent Dog Excellent (SDE) overall title.  He is only the third dog to achieve the highest level in this nosework organization. Most of all, I am extremely proud of my 17 year old Glen of Imaal Terrier, who still amazes me with his motivation to work and fun loving spirit.

Well done everybody and particularly the superb Oliver!
