Count them…….seven plus two!

Glen of Imaal Terriers aren’t a breed that feature over much in Group top placings but the round up this week brings in an incredible seven!

Arcadia Florida saw a cluster and Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend getting Best of Breed on all four days plus Groups 2, 3 & 4. Best opposite to him was Finnabair Cattskill Goldie. Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette, on his way home back to the north-west, stopped over in Idaho for two Best of Breeds at Lizard Butte Kennel Club & two at Idaho Capital City Kennel Club where he picked up a OHG3 and OHG2. Mad River Valley KC saw another group placement for Glens when Kilkenny’s Middleton of Irish Spirit took OHG4. In New York state Daulton’s Princess C Hatteras took a couple of Best of Breeds and clocked up number seven group placement for Glens with a OHG2.

Jyvaskyla (Finland) was a Best of Breed for Highlander’s Dream Casper with Pearytail Candy McCoy Best Bitch on day 1 & day 2 was a win for Gleann Bigwig. In Germany it was the Bundessieger weekend and big success for the Juniors with both the National and International shows having the same results, Best of Breed Gleann Holly at Spirit of Ireland with Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice Best Dog.

The big road trip over to Montgomery & back (four weeks in total) for the Dairiki boys wasn’t just for exhibition ribbons as Jeff writes “This weekend in Boise Quinn passed four of four master runs at the Valley Barn Hunt trials, earning his RATCHX title (as well as passing two of two crazy 8 runs, earning his CZ8B title.) Ciarán passed both of his master runs yesterday, earning high in class in both.

When you look at the gallery you’ll see a picture that doesn’t seem to fit. It’s Keadeen Second Star to the Right in the Group ring at Montgomery last week, the photograph arrived too late. Even though the top says seven group placements Glens probably had eight as the news has only come in unofficially about one of them……hint…hint if you haven’t sent. Here it is. Welcome to a new name for the weekend round up, Abberann Black Velvet Band by Galore who took 2 Best of Breeds and OHG1 & 2 in Oklahoma so it’s actually a tremendous NINE group placements!!!!!

Brilliant weekend everybody

September starts with a swing

It’s rather nice to start September with a Group 1 and Best In Show3 for a Glen of Imaal Terrier. Gleann Indico Indy did it at Kihnio Puppy Show! Rosears Master of the House took Best of Breed in Estonia which gave him an Estonian & Latvian Junior Championship. In Germany Gleann Holly at Spirit of Ireland took her 2nd BOB on her second trip out.

Over in America a group of shows in Kentucky saw Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta take all 4 Best of Breeds with Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas taking Best Dog each time and also an OHG2. Beaver County KC was a win for Tipperary American Girl with Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore, Best Opposite. At St Clairesville (Ohio) Kennel Club Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore was BOB & OHG3 with Tipperary American Girl Best Bitch. American Girl repeated her BOB at Fort Steuben Kennel Association with a OHG4 with Wild Night taking Best Dog. Up in Canada Gleann Holy Hannah took a Group 4 and Best Puppy In Group

Liam (Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc) showed his “brains” by qualifying twice in Instinct for Earthdog whilst Quinn showed how good he his and obtained his Senior Earthdog!!

It was the inaugural Southern Glen Walk and Lynne Fraser sends the following.”Delighted to say that we had 10 Glens and their people who joined us for a walk on the Racecourse. It was lovely to meet in person so many people I have met through Glens on facebook and for them to meet each other, I feel that strong friendships have been formed. Everyone was very kind and we have decided that next time we would like to find a village hall in the area and have a ‘Glen gathering’ for those who would like to come.  I think that another Glen walk will definitely be in order! Thank you to everyone who came and to all the Glens for being well behaved!

Great weekend indeed everybody!!

 

Let’s hear it for everybody

Glen of Imaal Terrier folk certainly believe in getting the breed out there. A weekend in Kentucky for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend results in a full set of Group placements, one through to four. Tipperary American Girl took a couple of days in Ohio and took home 2x Group 4 and one OHG2. Newtown Kennel Club saw Kilkenny’s Best of My Love take Best of Breed. Elm City KC was a BOB for Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney (and an OHG4) and she also took it at Ox Ridge KC.

Over in Europe it was the big Terri-Eri 2017 in Finland where Gleann Curvy Corvette took BOB with brother Cotton Cody Best Dog.  Tervakoski All Breed saw Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo triumph in the breed whilst Rosears Master of The House was BOB at Mantyharju Show and picked up a very nice Group 4. Gleann Holly at Spirit of Ireland took BOB at Ahlen in Germany. Unfortunately no Glens were entered on the Irish circuit, such a shame.
