Crufts critique 2017

Many thanks to judge Alan Small for the speed of his critique-it’s appreciated!

Glen of Imaal Terriers.

My thanks to the Kennel Club for the invite to judge the Glen’s, and for the hospitality extended to us all. Not having judged the breed for a while I was looking forward to the day. I was not dissapointed, with some quality dogs to go over, so thanks for the lovely entry. The problem with beeing 3rd. in the ring was plainly obvious at the start of judging when dogs hoovered their way round the green beige !

Couple of points worth mentioning is the over all length of the Glen is important to give the correct balance to the breed. The length from withers to set on is only slightly longer than the height from wither to the ground and the top line from withers to the loin should rise slightly and be in a continuous line….not, I might add, be dipey or Dandyish. Only a couple of iffey bites present. Loved my winners and was quite shocked when I found my Res. CC bitch , from veteran, was the dam of my BOB winner. Type will out !

Special thanks to my two Ring Stewards, Jean Hay & Joyce Setterfield, who enjoured a long day with three breeds to cover, cheers ladies. To all, enjoy your dogs, I did.

A new star arises!

It isn’t that often a ringside is in agreement but yesterday around the Glen of Imaal Terrier ring at Crufts, just before the finger was pointed for Best Bitch, there was an audible sense of people feeling a new star arising. Judge Alan Small picked up the psychic surge and there it was: Bitch CC Crufts 2017 to 14 month old Wickholm Breaking Dawn handled by 12 year old Emily Sage. Then it was Best of Breed over Gleann Cotton Cody who certainly wasn’t suffering from jet lag as he had flown in the day before. The two Reserves were Jeonty Lola May of Wickholm (dam of Breaking Dawn) and Golden Spurs. Best Puppy went to Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage.

There were the overseas visitors, there were the long distance drivers, there was the excellent Bring and Share with more stuff than ever before, there were the photographers and the admirers but the day belonged to Emily and “Lola’s Girl” Breaking Dawn. We were all very proud!

Many congratulations to all the above and all the first prize winners below

Glen of Imaal Terrier. LKA December 2016

Thank you to LKA for the chance to judge & special thanks to all exhibitors for your support at this well run show. Glens are often lazy & this affects movement in the ring. Moving them a bit quicker will often increase stride length and give better drive from the rear

POST GRADUATE DOG 1) Romainville Freddies Choice. Well presented, sound in type & movement. Reserve Best Dog. 2) Jeonty Yippee Kiaye. Nice outline, well shown. Lacked maturity compared to winner. This will come.

OPEN DOG 1) Gleann Dynamo Man at Jeonty. Big powerful dog. Nice head and conformation. Best Dog.

VETERAN DOG 1) Brockland Blackadder at Malsville 1) Still a typlical Glen despite advancing years. A pleasure to handle.

GOOD CITIZEN DOG 1) Golden Spurs. Well presented, should make up well.

MINOR PUPPY BITCH. 1) Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage. Very much a baby but nice type. Has potential to become a very nice Glen.

PUPPY BITCH 1) Wickholm Breaking Dawn. A young bitch which had both type & substance. She was very well shown & moved well with purpose. Best Puppy & Reserve Best Bitch. 2) Wickholm New Moon. Nice youngster. Shown in good condition, not as forward in development as the winner.

POST GRADUATE BITCH 1) Wickholm Gone in Sixty Seconds. Good type, moved well. 2) Jeonty Mini MeMe. Nice outline & conformation. Lacked a bit in concentration which affected movement.

OPEN BITCH 1) Jeonty MeMe Fern. Sound in type with good bone.

VETERAN BITCH. 1) Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm. A solid well put together Glen. Moves well & certainly has presence. Best Veteran, Best Bitch & Best of Breed. 2) Jeonty Red Clover. Sound bitch who still has the typical Glen style & attitude. Well shown.

Mike Brown MBE (Judge)

The two critiques above means Glens have had a full set for 2016 bar one. So Steve, if you are reading this, how about Midland Counties as you were “Sir”?

Association Champ Show…amongst others.

A quieter weekend but some Glen of Imaal Terrier people were still showing on the 1st Sunday of Advent; Christmas presents can wait awhile yet! The Glen of Imaal Terrier Association saw Romainville Billy Whizz getting the nod for Best in Show with Young May Moon Best Opposite Sex and Reserve Best In Show. The 2 Reserves were Romainville Fast ‘n’ Furious at Wickholm and Amhard Jeez Louise respectively. Best Puppy was (6 months on the day) Romainville Izzy Wizzy and Best Veteran Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm. Nice day for the Romainville and Wickholm kennels. It was Billy Whizz’s second BOB of the weekend as he had also taken that position at West Midlands Terrier

Slightly belated news from the Irish Breeds Society Show with a wonderful result for Glens; Abberann Phelan was Reserve Best In Show and Abberann Conan was Best Veteran in Show…nice!

Over in America at Agathon Kennel Club Best of Breed, and OHG2, was Tipperary Violet Dowager Countess who can now put Ch in front of her name, Best Dog was Daulton’s Rory. Sunday Agathon had Rory BOB (with Group 3) and Emerald Isle Keely with Daulton BOS. Violet finished off a good weekend by getting the nod for Bred By Exhibitor Gp1.

On the “brains” front Kelli Whitfield sends news “Griffin earned a qualifying agility run in Open Jumpers today with a first place completing his Open Jumpers Preferred (OJP) title today.”

Congratulations all.
