Yes you read it right. An Owner Handler Best In Show, a Best Puppy In Show and a Bred By Exhibitor Best In Show as well as an OHG3. This must be the best set of results from a cluster EVER for Glen of Imaal Terriers!
Over in Virginia Northern Neck KC (how did it get the name?) saw Abberann Owen Roe take Best of Breed with Abberann Derbla Best Bitch at both of their shows. Greater Fredericksburg held two shows with Derbla taking BOB at one with Ber-D-Mar Sweet William Best Opposite. At the second it was Owen Roe again BOB (with G4) and Derbla Best Opposite. Clearwater KC had Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock taking the Glen of Imaal honours.
Finland has started their show year and at Kajaani International Gleann Una Noonan was Best of Breed with Gleann Indico Indy Best Dog.
What an incredible weekend indeed.
