GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIERS
Firstly may I thank SKC for the appointment and the exhibitors for their entry. For most a way to travel and much appreciated.
Junior Dog (4.1) A quality class of youngsters ranging from 7 months to 16 months.
1)Hannington: Boudivella Oscar he has now reached that teenage stage a developing glen that now needs maturity. Body condition good, needs time now. Moved well both ways. Head, eye, muzzle and teeth okay. Presented well with good coat covering. Did enough to take the RCC.
2)Tobijanski: Romainville Becks Blue for Zippor. Having recently moved home has come on in the recent weeks. Good head and expression. At this stage was presented in excellent condition, however coat soft. Balanced throughout with good movement forward and back. A very good overall performance deserving BP.
3)Hogburn: Pajantick Razamataz. A youngster, presentation and condition very good. Developing well with good head and kind eye for age. However slightly longer in body and requires to muscle up but at 7 months has plenty of time, improving with each month. One to watch for the future. Moved well just missing out against the older competition.
Post Graduate (1.1)
Limit Dog (2.1)
1)Perrie: Poachersmoon Angus Mag Og. Coming up 4 yrs. old and a strong substantial glen. It is nice to see that the owner has taken advice given and is working hard on presentation. Has a way to go but such an improvement. Strong head, keen eye and good foreface with a well-muscled body and deep chest. Well boned. Coat is much improved. Just lacked in rear movement and drive in the challenge.
Open Dog (2.1)
1)Hogburn: Pajantick Star Trooper. What a little showman he is turning into. 4 years old and maturing nicely. Loved his head and kind eye and in superb harsh coat condition presented well with adequate bone. Moved with drive and purpose, good angulation, giving nothing away. Mouth could be better but you could not take away from the overall glen it was his day and he deserved the CC and BOB. His presence in the group ring was noted as he moved out putting on a good performance.
Post Graduate Bitch (1.1)
1)Baldock: Ellerton Dusky Beauty. Again another 4 yr old and now maturing into a lovely brindle bitch. Well-proportioned head, excellent eye colour good foreface and good mouth. Excellent expression Well-muscled with deep chest and good spring of rib and carrying excellent bone. Good turn of stifle. Moving well. Taking the deserved CC just missing out against the dog who was not giving away his day.
Limit Bitch (2.1)
1)Hannington: Romainville Uptown Girl. 5 yr old mature bitch of excellent harsh dark brindle coat. Well-presented. Head slightly narrow for me, however good dentition and eye colour, nice expression. Moved out both ways with drive, carrying good overall muscle tone but of lighter bone and not so deep through. Though did enough to deserve RCC on the day.

It was with great excitement and honour I accepted a Judging Appointment for Glen of Imaal Terriers at Southern Counties CA. I can’t say I wasn’t disappointed when I received my entry, but when I was in the ring I was pleased with the quality of the dogs present, a big thanks to the exhibitors I had a great day.

Good balanced dog, strength and depth to a good shaped head and jaw, correct topline, well boned and very powerful backend, muscle as hard as iron, showed and moved well with drive, a bit short in jacket, but a good confident dog I think could do a days work.
