Catching up with the news.

Glen of Imaal Terrier folk continue to get out and about. The Glen Association Open Show, judged by Nicki Montford, saw Romainville Rock On Ruby (Daughter of Billy Whizz BIS at the EFG Open Show) getting the applause for Best In Show with Kirikee Celtic Warrior Best Dog. Best Puppy, at his first show, Kingcottage Boogie on Basil and Best Veteran to Donvaleset Rebus.

At Riihimäki All Breed Show BOB was Rosears Humpty Dumpty and BOS Pearytail Bonnie B Goode with Bilbo’s Searlet taking Best Puppy. What a great weekend for GCH Abberann Torcan as he continues to rack up the group placements with a Group 2 and 4 at Wheaton.  His son Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore earned his AKC championship title with Winner’s Dog and Best of Winners at the Illinois show. These follow on a couple of back to back Group 4s.

Some late breaking news to add from the McKinley KC show held in Canton, Ohio yesterday, where Bronze Grand Champion Emerald Isle’s Keely with Daulton (Keely) was awarded a Terrier Group 4 under Judge Colonel Joe B. Purkhiser; breed judge was Mrs. Dennis (Mary Lou) Kniola. It was her 9th group placement under 9 different judges. Keely also went Owner-Handler Group 1 under Judge Kniola. Keely was handled by co-breeder, co-owner Jody Daulton. Ann Marie Pember is also co-breeder and other co-owners are Pam Estes and my wife Sheila Beyer Thomas and myself (Terry).

Kate Flack sends the following:Three day show held at the Western Washington Fairgrounds in Puyallup Washington: Friday, June 5th’s Western Washington All Terrier Show: BOB to KEADEEN’S BLUE BOY FOR BLUESETTE (Aka Ciaran). Bred by A Tighe, J Kindall, and shown by co-owner Jeff Dairiki. Saturday June 6 and Sunday June 7, the Puyallup/Tacoma KC Cluster. Judges Mariano Gatica Gomez and Merle Taylor awarded BOB both days to KEADEEN’S SIR EMMET MINGUS GLAS, (call name Emmet), also bred by Tighe & Kindall, and shown by co-owner Kate Flack.I didn’t credit the judge (Christine Erickson) on Friday as giving BOB to Jeff because well, Friday was complicated. She awarded BOB to me but I was DQ’d. When I registered online I checked the wrong class. I walked into the ring competing with Em as a 9-12 month puppy and then was awarded BOB.I realized my mistake, reported to the Superintendent, gave the ribbons to Jeff and was disqualified. Jeff won’t show up as BOB until the AKC notes the birthdate on my dog but, he will eventually. NOTE TO SELF: Read the confirmation letters that I receive in the mail carefully …… just to make sure I didn’t make an online error. A mistake in class can be corrected by the Superintendent until you step foot in the ring. Feel free to publish the Note to Self – maybe my mistake will keep someone else from making the error.

Congratulations to everybody and particular thanks to Kate for sharing her mistake; do check your entry forms.

Glen Association Open Show & Goosnargh

The Glen of Imaal Terrier Association Open Show is on June 7th at Shenstone Village Hall,Barnes Road, Shenstone WS14 0LT. Nicky Montford will be judging the 12 regular classes and Sherrill Goodwin the special ones. Schedules can be had from Anne Hardy or downloaded via the Association website

A reminder…

Anne Hardy (Secretary of the Glen Association ) would like to remind people about the trip to Dick White referrals next February. It is open to anybody, not just Glen of Imaal Terrier people, and subject ideas for discussion on the day are still welcome. A couple that have been suggested are “any pitfalls to look for when owning an achondroplasic breed?” and “living with leptospirosis”. An interesting day looks in store.
