Glen Of Imaal Terriers
Thank you to National Terrier for the invitation to judge these breeds, it was a well run show with good quality in the breeds I judged. Thanks to the exhibitors for the entries & the sporting atmosphere at ringside, I enjoyed the day among the dogs & their supporters
1 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Becks Blue, good development so far on this impressive youngster, he has the skull to muzzle ratios, neck, body & chest coming through, he’s good at the rear with the muscle & true action front to develop, but goes well in side action.
1 Hannington’s Boudivella Oscar, interesting class with the first stronger & more substance at this stage, he’s longer, but has the power in head & skull, strong jaw & better front with a good chest & strong rear, moved to win;
2 Rogers’ Kingcottage Boogie On Basil, slightly smaller at present but of good type, head balanced to length, good topline & tailset, he moved well on side & rear action & carries a good coat, more to come as he develops.
1 Alstead’s Golden Spurs, smart boy with the shape & balance, he has the head width developing, has the chest & body, though a little longer in loin, strong quarters & coat colour, he moves well on side & rear action, front to improve.
1 Withers’ Pajantick Star Trooper, impressive, strong, substantial wheaten boy with the typical head, skull, jaw & neck, he has a good front topline & shape with the tail & overall size, he’s well built through chest & loin with strongly muscled rearquarters, good on the move, he took it all before him today, great condition for CC & BOB;
2 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Jazz Man, liked this lad with the classic head, ear & eye, good neck, holds himself well in balance, would prefer a slightly better shoulder set, but he has the topline & rearend, just more to come in body & muscletone to challenge 1 in this excellent class;
3 Davis’ Donvaleset Rafferty at Viahninns.
1 Ashcroft’s Ch Romainville Typhoon, quality boy with the strength in head, skull & muzzle, he has the bone, body & substance, nice quarters & muscled rearend, not quite the topline today from withers, but he’s good on the move pushing all the way in the challenge taking the RCC today;
2 Sage’s Romainville Fast N’Furious at Wickholm, another lovely dog from this kennel with a classic shape, good typical head & neck, slightly longer in back than 1 with the croup & strong rearend, he moved well at his own pace.
1 Rogers’ Jeonty Minnie Meme, very promising & stunning puppy with the balance & overall shape, she has the attitude, is good through head & muzzle, she has the power in jaw with strong teeth, I liked the front topline & rear muscle strength, she’s good on the move from all angles & took this class & BP today;
2 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Razzamatazz, loved the outline & overall type of this girl, she’s good in profile action, but not quite the front development yet of 1, she’s growing well at this stage with the chest & body to firm up, her time will come.
1 Studd’s Wickholm Gone In Sixty Secs, smart girl with good proportions in head & body, she has the front & rise in topline to the tailset, a strongly muscled rearend & she’s good on the move with an easy action, accurate & true.
1 Hannington’s Romainville Uptown Girl, good type on this strong girl, she has the balance but a little longer in loin, she’s well filled in body with good proportions in head & muzzle, she carries the coat of harsh texture & won this class with the better movement today;
2 Ashcroft’s Romainville Moira, lovely wheaten girl of a better outline shape than 1, she has the power in skull & jaw, neck & tailset, carrying a little too much body weight today but OK on the move, with more to come in front action.
1 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Rock On Ruby, three quality girls in this class, the first a big strong powerful girl with the type in head, skull & muzzle, strong jaw & teeth of good size, she has the bone, strong front, depth of chest, rib, loin & tailset, she has good propulsion on the move, covers the ground with her strong drive at the rear, won the class & the close decision for the CC;
2 Seall’s Ch Bregorrey Madam Defiance, lovely, impressive for type & balance, good overall for size & performance, attracts in head, neck, topline & body, she’s good through although with finer bone, she has a strong rear & the easy action on the move, well deserved RCC, a worthy champion;
3 Sage’s Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm.

Glen of Imaal Terrier people are still enthusiastically out and about. In Finland at Porvoo Best of Breed was awarded to Rosears Finavia with BOS to Rosears Humpty Dumpty and at the Helsinki Group Show Rosears Heads or tails was Best of Breed. At the Irish Sporting Glen event an Overall Champion is awarded and this went to Bailielands Leanbh Orga who picked up Best Bitch, Reserve Best In Show and other points along the way from the various classes. Best Dog was Ballyclare Luke
In America Laura and Ch Niamh of Cnoc go from strength to strength in the agility world. The AKC agility titles are earned by qualifying at events and Niamh, after a week of agility, has added three double Qs (qualifying 6 times out of 6).
In the UK Darlington Championship Show saw a very unusual event, a Glen was shortlisted in the adult Terrier Group. The breed was shortlisted in the Puppy group there only last year but can anybody remember when the last adult group was? Breed judge, Jeff Luscott, awarded Best of Breed to Johnny Be Good at Romainville with the words “what a performance!” and obviously Group Judge Andrew Hunt felt the same way. The Bitch CC at Darlington went to Jeonty MeMe Fern and Best Puppy was Amhard High Flyer.
Huge Congratulations to everybody!!!!!!
