September Open Shows scheduling Glens.

A long time ago London & Home Counties Terrier was the first Open Show to ever schedule Glen of Imaal Terriers as an individual breed. The Glen Association has made L&HC there supported show so why not give them an entry? September 9th and Gillian McDermott is to be the judge. Entries close 13th August (postal) or 20th August (online). A nice show for Southern exhibitors who usually have to travel north. Full details can be found on the London & Home website

Kington Horse Show & Agrocultural Society has Glen of Imaal Terriers scheduled. The show is on September 8th with postal entries closing on 11th August and online 19th August. Judge is J Mahoney. This is a wonderful little show as it still retains its agricultural section.

Why should I?

Yesterday’s blog of the 2018 International Glen Health Seminar reminds of a comment that happened when the 2018 UK Glen of Imaal Terrier Survey went online so (as was believed) the normal thing these days of “I can’t be bothered to fill in, find an envelope and stamp and post it” was ended. Online was easy so all could do it. The “but why should I as all my Glens are healthy?” wasn’t anticipated.

It’s a BREED survey which includes everything. Your Glen may be healthy but what about it’s brother, sister? Your Glen may be healthy but what about it’s dam or it’s sire? If only folk with problem animals take the time to do it what is it going to look like in the final analysis? y number of Glens and all have problems…it’s a breed on the slippery downward slope indeed as far as the results are concerned.

It’s purposely not a deep and meaningful survey like the last one attempted. That tried a little too hard, put some folk off from completing it due to its length and subsequently took too long to collate. Sometimes the best intentions can go a bit wrong but things have been learnt. This 2018 UK Survey is easy and quick. Fill it in whilst drinking a mug of tea at home or on the way to work via your pad. It really is that simple.

Old school is still good so if you’re a writing properly type of person copies can be obtained from the two Glen Club Secretaries. Anne Hardy or Jean Rogers

And first in this week goes to……

Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend took a short sojourn in Canada for the Sarnia cluster and returned home with  2 x Group 2, 1 Group 3, 1 x Group 4 and his Canadian Championship.  The first American bred Glen of Imaal Terrier to obtain it. Finnabair DD Ain’t It The Life was also in Canada and collected three Group 4s. In Scotland Bon Accord is the local show for Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae and it was rather a good one for a finish to her puppy career. Puppy Group 1 and first in Vulnerable Breeds. Over in Ireland Abberann Cosmic Cowboy was BOB at Bray.

In Finland Oulu International Show saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard take Best of Breed with Astoreen Best Opposite. It was also the weekend of the Finnish Glen Club Show with a fabulous entry of 51. Best In Show went to Gleann Cotton Cody with Gleann Happy Hippie Best Bitch. Best Veteran was Abberann Fagan with Best Puppy being awarded to Finnabair Broc Rua Arda of Gleann. The Youngest Junior Handlers had a wonderful time!

In America a cluster of shows at West Springfield, Massachusetts, saw some nice Glen entries. Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea was Best of Breed at all four (picking up a Gp4 at Kenilworth KC of Connecticut inc) with Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney celebrating a return to the ring after her litter of ten with 3 x BOS and an OHG4. The other Best Opposite going to Kilkenny’s Midleton of Irish Spirit.

Congratulations everybody
