Malinka Lingmont writes: Last Saturday the Dutch Glen Association held their annual show of puppies and young dogs up to 24 months of age.The dogs were judged but not placed. There was no winner. There was an entry of 16 dogs plus 4 veterans. Mrs. Joke Bode judged the dogs and she saw some very promising youngsters both from Dutch and German origin. Two litters, with both parents, were presented, one of them even included the presence of two grandmothers.Pictures of all the present dogs are on the website at http://www.irishglenofimaalterrier.nl/puppy-jongehonden-en-nakomelingen-dag
