A Quieter Weekend (for some)

Even Glen of Imaal Terrier people have to have some time off and it looks like this last weekend was one of those times….but a Reserve Best In Show and two Group 1s were still notched  up in Memphis Mississippi  and it was Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend that obliged. Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc took OHG3 at Tioga County KC. Kate Flack reports from the West Coast “Olympic Kennel Club put on a WONDERFUL show in Enumclaw, Wa. Dock Diving, Barn Hunt, Coursing, Barn Hunt, Coursing, Conformation, Agility, Rally, Obedience – it was a buzz with activity. Keadeen’s Sir Emmet split the conformation honors with half sister Keadeen’s Second Start fro the Right, aka Stella. Emmet finished Saturday with an OHTerrier Group 4 – thanks to Judges Wendy Maisey and Bruce Fraser. Sunday Em was BOS to Stella and completed his 2nd Q toward an Barn Hunt Open title and took 4th speediest in his class.” Also I believe there should be news of coursing and barn hunting but it hasn’t come in yet (HINT, HINT)

It was Welsh Kennel Club in the UK. Best of Breed went to the newly crowned Golden Spurs with Romainville Whistle Dixie taking the Bitch ticket. The two Reserves were Boudivella Oscar & Romainville Maggie May. Best veteran was Donvaleset Rebus & Best Puppy Jeonty Jyn A New Hope.

Congratulations all.

Not too much catching up this week but lots of excitement in two Glen of Imaal Terrier households with two new Champions being made up. At Leeds Championship Show 3rd CCs went to both the Best of Breed Golden Spurs and the Best Bitch Wickholm Breaking Dawn. Reserves were Boudivella Oscar and Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm with Boudivella Tegan Best Puppy.

Last weekend Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas at Coos Bay KC took a Group 3 and OH Group 3  and Sunday a Group 4 and OH Group 1. Terrier Association of Oregon was a BOB for Keadeen Second Star To The Right with Sir Emmet Best Dog. This was repeated at Portland kennel Club whilst the second Portland was again a triumph for Second Star with Keadeen’s Kind of Blue getting Best Opposite. An update from last weekend as well as Abberann Whiskey You’re the Devil got two Baby Puppy Group 1s, 1x group 2 and Best Baby Puppy in Show. Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta won the Group in South Bend.

Rosears Master of the House with Best of Breed at Porvoo whilst at the Finnish Glen Speciality Highlanders Dream Casper was Best with Gleann Una Noonan Best Bitch-a fabulous 42 Glens entered.

Great news that Laura Trainor and Niamh have had the call for the 2017 AKC Agility Invational

Group placings galore!!

Glen of Imaal Terriers are certainly getting noticed in Groups at the moment.

In the USA Kilkennys Across the Universe at Setanta took a Group 1 at Kokomo Kennel Club, Keadeen Second Star To the Right a Group 3 at Coeur D’Alene and Finnabair Double D friend of a Friend a Gp 4 at Rhineland Kennel Club. The Owner Handler Groups are turning into a positive triumph for the breed with Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas annexing BOTH a Owner Handler Best In Show and Reserve Best In Show. Kilkenny’s Midleton of Irish Spirit also notched up an OHG1 as did Tipperary American Girl!

Canada may have only recently recognised Glens but recognised they certainly are with a Group 3, Group 4 and Best Puppy in Group for Gleann Holy Hannah and Groups 2 and 3 for Abberann Phelan.

In Europe there may not be the Group placings but there are certainly the dogs getting shown. At the Danish Terrier Club Gleann Cute Cocoon was Best of Breed and the Estonian Winners was a success for Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard with Gleann Damn Daisy Best Opposite. Helsinki International was a win for Gleann Cotton Cody with Damn Daisy once again Best Bitch. She made it three in a row at the Latvian Winners, this time to Gleann Bigwig. Turri Show was a BOB for Gleann Dear Dandelion and Best Dog was Gleann Eager Edgar

The UK saw a run of SKC, Bath, Southern Counties and the Glen Association Open Show with the top places being shared around. Scottish Kennel Club was a BOB for Amhard High Flyer with Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage taking the Bitch CC. Bath was Golden Spur and Romainville Whistle Dixie with Southern Counties seeing the first bitch BOB with Bregorrey Madam Defiance and Pajantick Razamatazz Best Opposite. The Glen Association saw Amhard High Flyer take home Best in Show with Reserve Best in Show going to the Reserve Best Dog Rollo The Great at his first ever official dog show! Best Bitch there was Romainville Razzamatazz. Best Puppy was Boudivella Tegan with Best Veteran Donvaleset Domino.

Besides the shows Glens were also at Burghley (courtesy of Nicki Atkin) for the Living Heritage Fair and Ciarin and Quinn were adding titles behind their names with RATCHX and Junior Earthdog. Monique sends special news of Ginny……qualififying for the 3rd time in Novice Buildings so earning her title today at the Performance Scent Dogs (PSD) trial in Westford, MA! She also learned two new scents this week, Anise & Clove, and was able to detect them during the Target Odor Tests.  “Star” though of this whole round up is summed up in owner Louise Lopez’s own words “I am so very, very proud of Tula! She earned her NW3 Elite title in Corvallis, Oregon today. This means she’s passed Nose Work 3 with a perfect score three times and is now qualified to compete at the Elite Level. She’s the first Glen to earn this title-such a wonderful girl”

Fabulous couple of weeks everybody and congratulations to all!
