Catching up

Championship, Open, Breed, Variety, Brains & serious socilising..Glen of Imaal Terriers have been doing their stuff this weekend.

Where to start this weekend? Finland as the breed’s fabulous Veterans are saluted. At Hyvinkaa Group Show Gleann Una Noonan was Best of Breed, Best Veteran & Group 3. marfidal Rain Dance was Best Opposite Sex to her. In Tallinn Rosears Master of the House was BOB whilst at the Danish Winners Gleann Gildea with Nelli was Best of Breed and Gleann Ho Ho Hogan Best Dog. The Danish Club Specialty Show on the following day had Abberann Celtic Princess in the top spot with Gleann Ho Ho Hogan Best Dog.

A bit quieter weekend in America (people getting prepared for Montgomery perhaps) but still Group placements.  Two Group 2s for Kilkenny Across The Universe at Setanta at Sheboygan and a OHG4 for Tipperary That Girl who was Best Bitch to Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friends BOB at Butler County who Himself then took a Group 2 at the second Butler County Show. West Volusia KC saw Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock take Best of Breed.

Glens were in varieties in the UK and most successfully. Boudivella Osca was at Bedfordshire Canine Society where he took Best NSC, Group 4 and 1st in the Vulnerable Breed Stakes. Up in Scotland Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae was at Perthshire CC and was rewarded with a Group 1 placement from NSC Terrier.

Monique writes that “Ginny earned her AKC Advanced Interior Scent Work title on Sunday.  This title combined with the 3 earned last weekend in Advanced Buried, Container, and Exterior completes the requirements for her overall Scent Work Advanced (SWA) title!” and the Dutch Glen Games in the Netherlands were evidently a total blast and the NE Glen Gathering in Massachusetts had a wonderful time practising sociability for their big 25th next year!

Great weekend everybody.

New Champions and Group Placements!!!!

What a set of results to bring together; reckon it is three new Glen of Imaal Terrier Champions, two new working titles plus numerous Group Placements. The 3 newbies are Abberann Karl, Keadeen’s Sir Emmett Mingus Glas & Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone. Karl took his third ticket at Belfast with Abberann Ennya taking the Bitch CC and Abberann Phelan & Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Taking the respective two Reserves. Keadeen’s Sir Emmett Mingus Glas took his title at the Monroe KC cluster with Best of Winners all three days. Ber-D-Mar Ballygriffin of Greystone took his title with 2 Best Opposites at the West Velusia KC back to backs. Congratulations to the breed’s new Champions but special applause for Griff as his front CH will give a bit of balance to the BN, RA, CGCA, RATO, JE, NJP, CA(NW1) that appear at the back of his name.

Monique writes about the mighty Ollie “Oliver earned his Nose Work 3 Vehicle title (NW3-V) at the NACSW Nose Work trial in Ashby, Massachusetts on Saturday. The weather was finally cooler and he was extremely motivated to find the hidden birch, anise, and clove odours.” With Laura writing that Niamh has earned her Master FAST agilty title. 10 qualifying runs are required to get this.

At Carlow Championship Show Abberann Phelan was Best of Breed with Group 4, Best Bitch was Ir Ch Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore. At Gig Harbour in America Keadeen’s Chloe was BOB & BOBOH Group 2 at one of the shows and Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette was BOB at the other.

The West Volusia Finnabair All In took the top award and OH Group 4 at the first show and Finnabair Song O’My Heart was BOB plus OH Group 3 as well as Terrier Group 3. A cluster at Monroe, Michigan saw Abberann Torcan take all three of the Best of Breeds. The only European result to come in was the Hyvinkaa Group Show In Finland with Gleann Damn Daisy Best of Breed and Susamurun Resta Qui Best Bitch.

Looking at the Glen Gathering group photo from Barre, MA it was one heck of a day.

Everybody should give everybody else a round of applause-you all do Glen of Imaal Terriers so proud!!!!!
