GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIER

J (2)1 Romanville Anna Belle, 11 months old bitch with clearly a lot of maturing still to do but has a lovely feminine head, correct bite with good overall balance leading to nice movement. A promising BB;

2 Romainville Maggie May, 13 months old bitch with a good bite & strong, substantial bone, shown in good condition with nice coat. Sadly didn’t really settle in the ring.

PG (1)1 Romainville Fade To Grey, 2 years old blue bitch, still with time to mature but displaying a working type, strength & substance with broad stable shoulders, good bite & harsh coat. RBB.

O (2,1a)1 Romainville Billy Wizz, 3 years old wheaten dog who is hitting his prime. Great bone & substance with good muscle, good bite, harsh coat, lovely balance giving strong movement. A very worthy BOB.

Old times!

Yesterday Midland Counties Championship Show turned into “old times”.  As the gloom of a late Autumn afternoon began there was one breed left in the echoing bottom hall of Stafford Showground as the stewards started to tidy up at the end of the day. It’s the traditional place for Glen of Imaal Terriers at that show! Jason Atkin judged and it was a double for Kathy George when he awarded Best of Breed to Romainviille Ellie and Best Dog to Romainville Billy Wizz. Best Puppy was Bregorrey Lady Belleisle
