Catching up with A LOT!

Holy Macaroni, Glen of Imaal Terriers have been doing us all so proud over the last couple of weeks it’s hard to know where to start!

Canada can take the honours this week as it is a very rare breed there in the showring so Groups are the thing for competition. Gleann Holy Hannah took a Gp1 and Gp4 United Kennel Club and Group 2 x2 at Moncton. Abberann Derbla 2 X Gp3 at Credit Valley Kennel Club plus Gp4 Georgina KC. Staying on that Continent and Gleann Damn Daisy, holidaying there from Finland, is getting seriously noticed with a GP3 at Central Florida KC, GP4 at Jacksonville Dog Fanciers plus BOB at the 2nd show, 2 BOBs at Treasure Coast KC of Florida, BOB Seminole Dog Fanciers Association plus GP2 at Seminole’s second show, Greater Ocala Dog Club was another BOB. BOS at Jacksonville was a new name to the blog, Long Lake Pharms Angus Fuller. Welcome to showing Glens and love your kennel name. Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock was BOB Space Coast Kennel Club of Palm Bay and the second Greater Ocala.

Leaving Florida and going to Pennsylvania Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea was BOB Greater Philadelphia Dog Fanciers Association & both Kennel Club of Philadelphia. Tipperary American Girl took BOB Penn Treaty KC. Heading north and west Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta, Gp4 at Pontiac KC & Greater Muskegon KC, BOB at Grand Rapids KC, Dayton KC, Lima KC with Abberann Lament for Owen Roe picking up GP4 at Kalamazoo KC and Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore OHG4 at Pontiac KC and Grand Rapids. Daulton’s Gedunk Malone from Emerald Isle picked up the last BOB of the weekend from Ohio

Northern Europe and Gleann Una Noonan has to do the lead in. Best Opposite at the Norwegian Winners as well as BOS at Jyvaskyla (Day 2) she was Best veteran in Breed day one and then took Best Veteran in Show out of over 70 veterans competing for the honour! Gleann Bigwig was BOB at the Norwegian Winners to her and Gleann Indico Indy at Jyvaskyla. Day 1 of that show saw Gleann Cotton Cody & Gleann Dear Dandelion taking the top honours. To Norway again and Rosears Master of The House was BOB Nordic Winners with BOS Pearytail Bonnie B Goode. Vaxjo (Sweden) was a BOB for Rosears Master of The House with Rosears Nugget of Gold Best Bitch. Flipping to the Danish Winners and Cairdiulacht Diarmuid MacMiolmor took Best and BOS was Rosears Nugget of Gold. Gleann Kooky Kanye was BOB at Lempäälä Puppy Show with Best Opposite Sex to Meomodo Dancing Angel. Two Best of Breeds in Germany for My Dear Fellow Calimero The Angel and in Rotterdam Amhard Manhattan took Best of Breed and his Dutch Junior Championship. Belgium to finish off and Boudivella Osca took BOB at both the Euro Dog Show & Benelux with Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage taking Best Opposite at both.

Said it had been a serious bit of breed promotion and it isn’t done yet. The “brains” department was also flying the flag. Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae passed her Silver Good Citizens and “Poppy” (need a name) in America also took her Good Citizens and earned 90 out of 100 in Rally Advanced. Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette qualified RATCHX7 which makes him the highest qualified barn Hunting Glen in the USA. Daulton’s Captain Jack of Roseglen took his BCAT title to show how incredibly diverse Glens are as a breed.

All over the world Glen of Imaal Terrier folk regularly give their time to promote the breed at many exhibitions and events. The National Pet Show was held recently and Alfie, Basil, Gil, Inga and Murfi showed everybody just what a Glen is. It’s also great when breed owners decide to get together “just for fun” as happened recently with the New Jersey Fall Glen Gathering.

All of us are wowed with your dedication and talent to show the breed in so many places!

August it is

Where is the year going…August already but Glen of Imaal Terrier people are still bring the breed’s name to the fore. Last week we applauded under 12 months Keadeen’s By Happy Chance taking a G1 and this week we’re beginning again with “the kiddies” as Tipperary Uptown Girl takes a Group 1 & 2 in the (not sure what it’s called in America) Baby Puppy 4-6 month competition.

A group of 10 Finns may have already started their journey to Amsterdam but the shows in their home country continue. Three shows over three days at Kuopio saw the honours go to Gleann Ho Ho Hogan with Pearytail Bonnie B Good Best Opposite, Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat BOB Bonnie again BOS and the 3rd show was Astoreen Best of Breed with Gleann Hogan Best Dog. In Sweden Gleann Bigwig took a Best of Breed.

Over in the States it was double BOBs (Fort Steuben & Beaver County KC) for Tipperary That Girl. A cluster of shows in Virginia had Kilkenny’s Across The Universe at Setanta take 3 Best of Breeds and a G4. Abberann Phelan had to bow the paw at all three shows.

In the Brains Department Monique sends news of Ginny who “qualified twice with first place finishes this weekend in AKC agility and earned her Novice Jumpers Preferred (NJP) title.”   So she is now Elric’s Gin & Tonic NJP ACT1 BCAT RATO TKP SWN SCNE

Congrats to all.

The 2016 World Show….and others with a BIG NEWS in there!

The 2016 World Show may have been in Moscow but Glen of Imaal Terrier people were there. It was a three day event for Terrier folk and a 3 day success for Gleann Bigwig & Pearytail Artless Tess as they got BOB & BOS 3 days out of 3. Meomodo Fantasterrific Arien was Junior World Winner with Pearytail Candy McCoy Best Junior on the other two days.

At Blackpool Young May Moon took Best of Breed with Bendikes Edward Bear at Squiresbeach Best Opposite. Over in America Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore took top spot in Glens at both Mid-Hudson & Shawangunk KC whilst Keadeen Blue Boy for Bluesette did “beauty & brains” par excellence with an Owner Handler Group 3 and obtained his Barn Hunt Q!

As a Breed we aren’t often awarded with Best In Show but we have a new recruit to those hallowed ranks. Kingcottage Boogie on Basil took Best Not Separately Classified, then the Terrier Group and then the ultimate, ultimate finger point for Best In Show at Carmarthen! His photograph was sent but the editorial decision has been made to go with the rosette shot as Beth’s OMG he gave it us face isn’t exactly flattering on her.

Applause for everybody and particularly Basil.

What a collection!!!

Finnish Winners, Helsinki Winners, Nordic Winners, Holland Cup, Eukanuba Cluster and LKA; what a collection of Glen of Imaal Terriers!!

The Helsinki & Finnish Winners are held together and also have a Puppy Show included. The Helsinki Winners saw Gleann Bigwig BOB with Gleann Una Noonan Best Opposite whilst the Finnish saw Una Noonan Best of Breed with Gleann Cotton Candy taking Best Dog. At the Puppy Show Pearytail Candy McCoy get the nod with Pearytail Clumsy Clint bowing the paw to his sister and then the Pearytail Kennel also took a fabulous BIS3 Breeder Group! At the Nordic Winners the currently all conquering Una Noonan was Best of Breed with Gleann Bumpkin taking Best Opposite Sex.

The Eukanuba Cluster in Florida had nearly a week of shows. Space Coast KC of Palm Bay (love the name) Had Daulton’s Princess C Hatteras BOB with Finnabair Caatskill’s Thunderstruck at Shorlyne Best Dog. Central Florida Kennel Club was a win for Finnabair Double D friend of a friend and Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney Best Bitch. Brevard KC had Finnabair Ardmore Ned at the top of the pile Glen Rooney again Best Opposite. As there are so many Pro-Handlers in the States Eukanuba has a National Owner Handler Series. Finnabair Song O’My Heart took the Big Rosette home with Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone standing at the top in the dogs. At the Eukanuba show itself Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore was Best of Breed and, the very confusing named if UK based, Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney Best Opposite (also Best Bred By) with two Selects being given to Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone & Finnabair Song O’My Heart. There was also a Chicago Cluster and Abberann Torcan, sire of the Eukanuba BOB, did Glens proud with a Group 2 and 2 x Group 3. 4 month old Abberann Stars & Stripes Ruari made a great start in her show career with Group 1 win for Beginner Puppy. Jeonty Sunny Sky Baby was BOB at Shoreline Dog Fanciers. A result that had somehow disappeared into the ether, and has now reappeared, is from Ozarks Kennel Club. Castle Valley China Girl of Glenbride was BOB, with Coleraines Coldplay Best Opposite, on Day One. Day Two saw Coldplay take BOB with Best Bitch being awarded to Coleraine’s Ginger Snap.

As a small aside Eukanuba is a Crufts qualifier so that means three of the five qualified from the US throughout the year could come over as they are undocked. Torcan did it most successfully last year so will Bill Browne-Cole be seeing some American cousins?

The Holland Cup was a triumph for Abberann Phelan and, rather than a photograph, he can be seen around 1 minute 58 seconds on here and at the Amsterdam Winners he triumphed once again.

LKA is the last All Breed Championship Show of the Year in the UK. Best of Breed was awarded to Jeonty MeMe Fern with Best Dog going to Brockland Brayhead Lad, the two Reserves were Donvaleset Domino, who was also Best Veteran, and Romainville Billy Whizz respectively. Best Puppy went to Boudivella Oscar.

We are proud!!!

Late November but the round up this week is HUGE news. First let’s hear from Laura “Niamh earned her PACH title at the Talcott Mt. agility trial in Springfield, MA today. She is the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to do so. To achieve a PACH – Preferred Agility Champion, she had to earn 20 Double Qs, qualifying in both Standard and Jumpers courses on the same day and 750 points, one point for every second under course time. I’m very proud of her. PACH GCH Niamh of Cnoc CD BN PCD RE MXP5 MXPS MJP5 MJPS PAX MFP T2BP JE RATO CGCA”.

Then it’s Monique with the now 16 year old Oliver “Today in New Hampshire, Oliver earned two NACSW Nose Work titles: NW3-C (Container search) and NW3-I (Interior search). He is the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to earn all four NW3 Element titles by successfully passing each element at 3 different trials! So proud that my old guy is still capable of having fun and earning titles to boot! So to give him his full due it’s ARBA CH. Rainbow Springs Oliver Twist SE, RN, RATI, RATS, NW1, NW2, NW3-V, NW3-E, NW3-C, NW3-I, L1I, L1V, SD-NB, SD-NC, SD-NE, SD-AD

For an incredible, unbelievable third report in one weekend Winston, assisted by Mark, earned his Canine Nose Work (NW2)title with the National Association of Canine Scentwork.

A late catch up from Jeff Dairiki “Last weekend, at the Whidbey Island KC show in Monroe, WA, our Ciarán went BOB both days: Saturday under judge Robert Hutton, Sunday under judge Mareth Kipp.  Saturday’s win, a five-point major, finished his championship, making him “CH Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette CA RATS”! Ciarán’s mother, CH Liberty’s Colors of Keadeen (Violet), took BOS both days, and brother CH Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas (Emmet) was SEL both days, so it was all in the family.

Over in Finland it was a back to back weekend for the Jyvaskyla International. On Saturday it was BOB Gleann Bigwig and BOS Pearytail Artless Tess and Sunday BOB to Gleann Una Noonan with BOS Gleann Bigwig. The Danish Terrier Club also had a double weekend with Saturday seeing Hammersmolles Pandora at the top with Gleann Willie the Whale Best Dog. Sunday saw a reverse of the placings with Pandora going onto get BIS 2 Junior! In Germany My Dear Fellow Bealtaine de Coco took home the Best of Breed rosette.

Over in America Kilkenny’s Granite Aine of Claddagh was BOB at Agathon KC and at Golden Vally it was back to back Best of Breeds for Jeonty Golden Memo.

Many congratulations to everybody!

Better than Christmas shopping…

Why do Glen of Imaal Terrier people need to Christmas shop when there is a dog event! Finland saw a double International event with the Helsinki & Finnish Winners on following days. At the Helsinki Winners BOB went to Gleann Bigwig with BOS to Stiubhard Cutie Pie at Gleann. Finnish Winners saw the veteran Gleann Rabarber Drom took the Big Ribbon with Bigwig making a good weekend with the BOS. Junior Winner at the Finnish Winner show was Finnabair North American Nebulon with the JW title at Helsinki going to Cutie Pie.

Oaks Pennsylvania had Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea as Best of Breed and Ber-D-Mar Charm One of Wicklow got the nod to take Best Opposite. GCH Finnabair Song O’My Heart showed her brains as well as beauty by adding a Junior Earthdog title to her name. At the Combined Canine Club Show in Ireland Blaithin Ballyclare was BP & BOB.

Great going everybody!!
