Blimey, we’ve been busy

Many parts of the world have been recording very high temperatures but Glen of Imaal Terrier folk obviously thrive on the heat.

For a change let’s start the round up in Canada. Not a big dog showing country but boy do they like Glens with Gleann Holy Hannah taking 2 x Group 1, 2x Group 2 and 2x Reserve Best In Show and Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend taking the full set in Groups, one, two, three and four all on the same weekend!

In Finland at the Nastola Group Show Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat was Best of Breed, at the Nordic Pearytail Bonnie B Goode was BOB with Rosears Impromptu Best Dog and at Pori International Gleann Ungus MacGuire was BOB with Balloo Girl Best Opposite. Mikkeli International saw Gleann Indico Indy getting the nod for Best of Breed

In Ireland Poachersmoon Sissy McGinty was Best of Breed and at the EFG Fun Day (another event that was hot, hot, hot) a Dachshund was Best In Show and the Glen (who was on holiday from Germany) was Reserve Best In Show. By the weekend of Leeds Championship Show the weather had become wet, wet, wet but that didn’t stop Golden Spurs (Best Dog) and kennel mate Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage taking Best of Breed. The two Reserves to Boudivella Osca and Jeonty Dreams A Dream at Karensbrae.

The American branch of the family has been VERY active. Laura Trainor sends the following information:- 7/12 BOB OHG2, G2 GCH DAULTON’S CAOIMHE OF PINE MEADOW CA.

At Grand River Kennel Club Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy tonight was Best of Breed (and G4) with Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc again Best Opposite that was the icing on his Best of Winners at Ashtabula KC on the 12th July as that was the final points for his American Championship. Caoimhe is really on song at the moment as BOB was also taken (twice) at Dan Emmett KC along with an OHG4 as well as two Best of Breeds at Western Reserve KC where a G4 and an OHG3 were collected as well. The two Best Opposites were Daulton’s Gedunk Malone from Emerald Isle and Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen. Marion (Ohio) KC also fell to her with Ciaran Best Dog again

Continuing in the States a new star arose at Terrier Association Of Oregon when Keadeen’s Happy Chance-at just under a year old-was nodded to for Best of Breed and then he took OHG1 and Group 4. Best Botch was Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right. The back to back shows at Portland Kennel Club saw Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right triumph at both with Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas and Keadeen’s Happy Go Lucky the Best Opposites. Another young star has also emerged further down the country at Woodstock Dog Club when 7 months old Kilkenny’s Stopping By Woods was Best Opposite and PG3 to his mother Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney. This was again repeated at Green Mountain whilst at Green Mountain second show Rooney took the honours again with Ballyhae’s Winter Sunshine taking Best Opposite.

Way to go people!!

 

 

End of July…

…and Glen of Imaal Terrier folk are flying the flag with enthusiasm

First time results from the Split 4 Day Summer Show with some very handsome rosettes, and her Croatian Championship, lifted by Pearytail Bonnie B Goode. Pori International was a Best of Breed for Gleann Ungus MacGuire with Balloo Girl Best Bitch. Ohio saw a four day cluster and results are in for three. Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend featured on all days with 2 Best of Breeds and a Best Opposite and Tipperary American Girl taking one Best of Breed and one Best Opposite with an OHG2 & OHG4. Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow took the other Best Opposite and also a OHG3. At Hurricane Ridge Kennel Club Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas took a Group 1 & 4 as well as 2 owner handler Group1s and an OHRBIS so a nice weekend there!

Monique Anthony sends “Ginny had a fun day at the USCSS (United States Canine Scent Sports) scentwork trial in Westford, MA. She qualified in all 4 of her classes (Novice Interior & Vehicle, and Intermediate Exterior & Container) and earned a 3rd place in Containers.

The Game Fair was down at Hatfield House, Hertford and Glen of Imaal Terriers were there in the Discover Dogs area. Had an email that said “nice to see the Glens there” and just learnt (thanks Nicki) it was the Hanningtons manning the fort as well as the Atkins. Just as important as any dog show.

The Finnish Glen Speciality mentioned last week was far more than just a one day dog show as there was a weekend Glen happening which also included weight pulling, lure coursing, lots of competitions for children etc.

Well done indeed everybody!!

It’s nearly Easter

and Glen of Imaal Terrier owners are adding rosette colour to their Easter displays. An excellent weekend for the Gleann Kennel with Cotton Cody and Damn Daisy taking Best of Breed & Best Opposite in Tallinn with Ungus MacGuire taking the top award at Vaasa International over Balloo Girl.

A cluster of shows in Massachusetts saw 2 Best of Breeds for Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea (with a Gp4 at Cheshire KC) over Daulton’s Tupelo Honey of Galore but she flipped it around at Trap Falls by getting the big rosette over him. The big news though are the three Glens showing the brains and putting initials behind their names. Tipperary Sweet Rosie O’Grady got her Canine Good Citizens, Griffin earned his third qualifying score in Rally Excellent with a second place and now adds “RE” to his titles and Niamh became a Master Barnhunt titled girl.

Great going everybody, you all do the breed proud.

Fabulous entry in Finland

Some shows attract Glen of Imaal Terriers and the Terrier Specialty in Finland saw over 30 competing. Best of Breed went to Gleann Ungus MacGuire with Pearytail Artless Tess Best Opposite. Riihimaki Int. Show the same weekend saw Gleann Una Noonan take BOB with Gleann Eager Edgar Best Dog. At Hammaslahti Group Show Rosears Lil Davy was Best of Breed. Rosears kate the Duchess was in Russia and was awarded 2x BOB.

A big weekend of Glen social get-togethers. The Glen Association in the UK and Glen folk in the Netherlands held a couple of successful events. Admittedly the “weather God” wasn’t too accommodating to begin with in Grantham but a great time was had by all. The Finnish after show was as convivial as ever with even more people to enjoy!

Great weekend!
