It’s back!!!

Once in a galaxy far, far away a Green Book was born. For many people it was their first introduction to anything written about the Glen of Imaal Terrier. Origin & History, Breed Standard, trimming, choosing a Glen, it was all there and it was very successful. It was freely available to anybody who wanted it because the whole idea was to get the genuine and authentic word out. It was a first in the breed and it was genuinely admired.

Times change though & so do ideas and wants. Everybody became obsessed with the internet & who wanted to read anything on paper? The Green Book acknowledged it was a relic of a time and disappeared into memory.

Retro is again popular though & some Glen folk have long memories. Why don’t you…… So we listened and it’s back. It’s get updated pages, it’s got health, it’s got appeal once more. Are you having a litter & need it for puppy packs? Do you want to send it to people who enquire about Glens? It’s here & it’s available for you. Just let us know.

We love that you are loving the return of a true icon. As it says above it is available  free of charge, it’s being looked on as a service to the breed just like it used to be, and it is for anybody interested in Glens. For folk who have already asked they will be coming out to you after the Bank Holiday weekend. Once you’ve got it a donation wouldn’ be refused if you think it worth it. If you decide you don’t want it offer it to your local library as they like books and leaflets that could be useful

A quieter week…

…but after the hectic run of recent months even the most devoted Glen of Imaal Terrier owner needs a bit of time off.

Scottish Kennel Club is a long run for everybody, even the nearest Scottish exhibitor is 4 hours away, so everybody who goes deserves applause. Abberann Conan, the furthest travelled, once again took Best Veteran and Best of Breed with Reserve Dog going to Boudivella Osca. Bitch CC was Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage and Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne in Reserve. Best Puppy was Jeonty Dreams a Dream with Karensbrae.

Over in Scandinavia Rosears Master of the House had a great weekend with BOB at Hamina and Helsinki. Rosears Nugget of Gold was BOS at Hamina and Pearytail Cherry Bomb at Helsinki. Glean Ho Ho Hogan had an even better weekend in many ways with a Gp3 at Lahti Group Show.

love the names of some Kennel Clubs in the States and this week has a couple of beauties. Vacationland KC was a OHG4 placement for Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney and at Magic Valley KC Kilkenny’s Middleton Irish Spirit was BOB at their two shows. And then took Best of Breed and OHG4 at Blennerhassett KC

Congratulations all you people who are very shy this week in the photographic department.

Just wow!!!!

Last week it was easy to decide which Glen of Imaal Terrier should lead the “honour roll” round up and it’s easy this week as well. Please everybody, stand and applaud Billy Tow vom Au Deich who, at the Dutch Championship Show, took Best Dog for the 7th time and Best In Show for the 4th. Oh yes, he was Best Veteran as well. Best Bitch was his kennel mate McJake’s Aivy. Another Veteran Best of Breed was Abberann Conan who added yet another ribbon to his tally at The National. Best Bitch came from the other end of the scale when Jeonty Jyn A New Hope got the nod from Junior. It was worth the trip for the Abberanns as Cosmic Cowboy was Reserve Dog & Reach For The Stars Ryanne Reserve Best Bitch. Best Puppy Amhard Off The Cuff

Nice to hear from Australia where “Neuter” titles are on offer. Taufield Queen of Tara was Runner Up Neuter and Best Neuter at her last two shows which gives her 96 out the 100 points needed. The European Winners in Dortmund saw Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice increasing his reputation with Best of Breed, Fire & Ice Naomi was Best Bitch. In Ireland Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore represented Glens in the Group ring. Gleann is an affix that regularly appears here but this week the first mention is from Canada and Dartmouth Kennel Club with a Group 4 and two Group 2s for Gleann Holy Hannah. Crossing the sea to Scandinavia and Jarvenpaa with Gleann Indico Indy as BOB and Gleann Halloween Hattie Best Opposite. Oulu Nordic Show saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard with the big ribbon and Gleann Halloween Hattie as Best Bitch. Gleann Ho Ho Hogan was Best of Breed at Seinajoki Group Show.

In America at Ravenna Kennel Club Tipperary That Girl was Best of Breed with Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen Best Dog at one show with the results repeated at another but it was G4 for American Girl & BBEG2 for Sailor John. Klanath Dog Fanciers had a back to back set of shows and Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas had a OHG2 and OHG3 whilst Keadeen’s Something Like A Phenomenon was Best Opposite both days but she went one better with a fabulous Puppy Group 1. Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight at Chambersburg KC Shows also registered the Glen in the Group ring with a OHG2 and a G4.

You all do us proud!!!
