A bit quieter this weekend

The weekend before December and for many it’s the start of Christmas Shopping but some Glen of Imaal Terrier people are still out and about. The Glen Association Championship Show was judged by Ann Quinn and it was certainly worth the long trip for the Whites. Best In Show was awarded to Abberann Conan who also took Best Veteran (our oldies are having a ball at the moment) with Best Opposite Sex going to Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore. Best Puppy was “Conan’s boy” Abberann Cosmic Cowboy. The two Reserves were Rollo The Great and Donvaleset Brier, who is also a Veteran. West Midlands Terrier was another veteran BOB in the shape of Johnny Be Good at Romainville. Two HauHau Shows in Finland. The first one saw Highlander’s Dream Casper take BOB with Gleann Una Noonan Best Bitch. The results were reversed on Day 2 with Una Noonan being awarded BOB with Dream Casper Best Opposite.

Just a couple of shows reporting in from America. At Agathon Kennel Club Tipperary American Girl was Best of Breed and Daulton’s Captain Jack of Roseglen was Best Dog. At the second Agathon show American Girl again triumphed, plus OHG4, with Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen getting Best Opposite.

Griffin was adding to his alphabet of titles as he obtained his Excellent Jumpers with Weaves so he needs a lot of room now for a full shout out- Champion Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone BN RE NAP OJP JE CAX BCAT RATO CGCA TKP AJP

Well done all.




Glen Association Schedule available

The schedule for the Glen of Imaal Terrier Association Championship Show is now available. It will be held on Sunday 26th November at Pilsley Village Hall, Pilsley, Chesterfield, Derbyshire. S45 8HU. Ann Quinn is the judge of the day. Schedules can be obtained from Anne Hardy 07575 141494 or via the Glen Association website

Parish Notices

The Secretary of West Midlands Terrier advises, that due to the high entry of Glen of Imaal Terriers, the breed are no longer after Staffordshires. The suggestion for Glen exhibitors is to be in the car park by 10.00am which should give time for unloading etc.

The Glen Association Championship Show  is the day after and judging begins at midday. We know, via blog searches, that people are curious about the entry but secretary Anne Hardy says folk’ll have to wait until Sunday!

Anne says she remembers the conversation slightly differently, which is fair enough, so hopefully that’ll mean the figures will be out earlier next year so anybody wondering about travelling in the dark won’t have to trawl the internet looking.

Fancy a mince pie..on a busy weekend?

It’s been a glorious wallow in nostalgia recently but a very valid point has been put. The large get-togethers all over the place stopped when fuel prices initially started to rise so much. We now all know that they are never going to go down again now so why not get-together more often again? If people know that a show is being supported it might nget entries up again!

Who can argue on that so, in fond memory of past hospitality, the EFG would like to announce that mince pies (and possibly other things) will be available at West Midlands Terrier on December 3rd. Schedules are available and the closing date is November 8th (snail mail) and November 15th on line. Glen of Imaal Terriers are 2nd in the ring so it will give plenty of time to talk, exchange Christmas cards and still be home before it gets too dark.

December 4th is the day of the Glen Association Championship Show at Shenstone. Entries close on November 4th and details are available from Anne Hardy  so if anybody fancies a busy weekend….

ADDITION.  Been asked about the entry form for West Midlands? Any you have lying around will do as all the details are on the schedule but an actual West Midlands can be downloaded
