Spoke about East of England earlier in the week and forgot to do the interesting bit…..who did what. Buster was BOB and Brenna BB but what made it interesting was the flash of titles with Buzzie being a NL CH and Bren a BL CH. Glen of Imaals were third breed in under the same judge and so you would expect a sole use ring for the judge. Well we did and, as was learnt afterwards, so did the judge. Somehow or other the E of E committee decided that a judge with three breeds should be second in the ring! Okay everybody knows that Glen people are organised and more than able to be ready and willing whenever called upon but was it really fair?
The answer has to be no. It wasn’t fair on the judge to be so pressured. Having tannoy announcements for the “Glen of Imaal Terrier to please go to the Group” when the breed has only just started being judged through bad scheduling is really daft. If Glen of Imaal people weren’t so nice they could probably have had a rather large moan rather than a laugh.
