Barn Hunting, walking, exhibiting, something very new and a BEST IN SHOW; Glen of Imaal Terriers just keep on getting better!! The first mention just has to go to GCH Finnabair Ardmore Ned with number 15 Group 1 down in Arkansas and this time BEST IN SHOW. No apologies for using the very nice tribute breeder Mary gave “Today Ned, GCH Finnabair Ardmore Ned, became only the second Glen in the US to get an All Breed Best In Show. Ned is sired by Spike – Malsville Soldier Blue. Royalty’s Star Over Coleraine (India) was the first Glen to have that honor. BOTH dogs share a grand sire – Jeonty Little Soldier, making this a family affair. Thank you to Jean Rogers for producing Soldier, and to Liz and Harold Gay for allowing Spike to emigrate to the US. Well done!” The American South really loves the breed as GlenTyrs Lady Isabella took Gp1 in Augusta, Georgia. Over in Ohio it was another BOB for GCH Daulton’s Emerald Green. Brno saw the European plus an International Show and Fin Glenn Glen Limited Edition was Best of Breed with Gleann Aine of Antrim Best Opposite. The International Show saw Cairdiulacht Aoife NicAlainna take the top award. In Finland Stiubhard Cutie Pie at Gleann was BOB at Seinajoki with BOS going to Gleann Ungus MacGuire. Midland Counties saw Dovaleset Rebus take Best of Breed with Donvaleset Domino Best Bitch. At the first ever Barn Hunt In New York State Niamh showed everybody just how good Glens are with first place & high score (fastest time) in Open. The first Glen walk in Central park caused a lot of interest and was a great advertisement for the joys of owning one.To finish off such an incredible round up Finnian shows the adaptability of the breed with his acceptance into a new programme Los Angeles International airport has started. They are going to have dogs in the airport terminal to help reduce stress levels of passengers and the boy will be there for a stroke and a hug! What a weekend and what a list of accomplishments!!!!!!!!
Glen of Imaal Terrier people NEVER give up going out and about. The big show in America is Westminster and Best of Breed was GCH Finnabair Ardmore Ned with Ch Tipperary American Girl JE Best Opposite Sex. As always a video is available. Ned is having a great start to the year with 7 Group placements in 11 shows. At the Tallinn Winter 2014 International Show Glenrosedale Aoibheann Nion Rós was BOB and Glenrosedale Ardal Ridire àin Rí was BOS with Stiubhard First Lady at Glenrosedale Best Puppy. Gleann Aine of Antrim added Slovenian Champion to her tally.
Also the “brains” have been working with Winston (Finnabair Winston O’Reilly) adding Junior Earthdog to his collection of initials and Winston does a different kind of beauty winning a Valentine Pet Contest. Well done everybody!
