The forecast for Swineshead tomorrow was, initially, not that good but a study of the forecast this morning says the rain has moved to Sunday so bring on the day!

Sheila,, has just a few spaces left for eye testing. Remember this is all breed not just Glen of Imaal Terrier. Alison will have the DNA swabs. The dog show schedule can be downloaded for reference so let’s get ready for a good event!

It’s almost July

Next week is July which means it’s under 2 weeks until the Eye Testing and Fun Dog Show at Swineshead. The eye testing is being done by Peter Bedford and appointments are needed-Sheila on will sort that out for you. The Fun Dog Show Day will see all monies going to Glen Health and Hearing Dogs for the Deaf so raffle prizes are needed. Let Jean on know about that. Finally if you are a Glen of Imaal Terrier owner don’t forget that swabs will be available to enable your dog to be included in the DNA archive. Alison on efghealth@gmail is the lady for assistance there.
