Certainly a different Crufts…..

….well it was for Glen of Imaal Terrier exhibitors and admirers. 2nd in ring 6 so you turn up there and, okay not the biggest entry, where is everybody and where’s my bench, where’s my breeder, where’s my family? Somebody, somewhere had suffered from a rush of blood to the head when drawing up the benching plan and Glens were one side of ring 6 and one side of ring 5; so far apart we couldn’t even see each other! Being as stoic as our breed there was a lot of sighing and a lot of walking to each other (Welsh & Airedales were between us) but then there was a “sod it, this is rubbish” and the organiser’s office was visited for a non-official, official complaint. Vanessa McAlpine said it most certainly shouldn’t have happened and she’d find out why and get back. What she finds out will be reported on here.

Nobody had travelled from abroad this year but the Quarrie’s & Lin Smith, being from the Isle of Man & Guernsey, certainly got their travelling miles. There were folk new to the breed and people returning once more to Glens. It was great to see everybody and everything certainly seemed to go well. Admittedly the Bring & Share had a bit of a problem with the ridiculous benching arrangements as it isn’t a good idea to leave your dogs but a lot of food was “brunged” and it was shared via platefuls being taken away.

Dog CC & Best of Breed was awarded to Boudivella Oscar with the Reserve CC going to his uncle, Romainville Billy Wizz. Bitch CC went to Jeonty Minnie MeMe and the Reserve went to the Isle of Man with Rhumsaamist Glen Maye at Quaywest. Best Puppy travelled to the north of Scotland with Jeonty Dreams A Dream of Karensbrae (daughter of the bitch ticket winner) and Best Veteran went to the positively infantile-in Glen veteran terms-Kirikee Celtic Warrior.

Various Glen people around the world have asked, as “we’re so good”, if there is any chance of a full set of photographs? Flattery like that and anything can be done. Feel free to share them collectively or individually but a credit to either RBT (International) or the EFG blog would be appreciated.

As usual they’ll be more about Glens at Crufts tomorrow

..and we’re back!

What have we missed? It must have been something good as there were over 600 visitors on the 9/10 of February. If you were one of them do let us know what you were looking for-we still might be able to help.

Well “the biggie” of the AKC is gone and done with a triumph for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend. Taylor had certainly had a good run pre the event with two Group 4s and numbers 15 & 16 Group 1s. He celebrated his Westminster win with two Group 2s and a Group 3 on his return to Florida. Best Opposite to him in New York was Tipperary American Girl. Ber-D-Mar Sweet William o’Shea was picking up BOBs all over but the best named place must surely be Northern Neck KC of Virginia! Kate Flack was also out with Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas notching up 3 x BOb as well as 2 Owner Handler placements.

Finland doesn’t stop for the darker months. Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat was busy picking up Junior Championships in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. At Turku International Dog Show Best of Breed was awarded to Gleann Una Noonan with Rosears Master of the House Best Dog. Lahti Puppy Show saw Madra Athas Ceinlys Chead Ghra took a tremendous Group 2 award. Kajani Show was a BOB for Finnabair North American Nebulon with Pearytail Bonnie B Goode Best Bitch.

We weren’t as quiet as we usually are with Manchester now being in the “closed” period. Best of Breed was Boudivella Tegan with Romainville Becks Blue with Zippor Best Dog. Pajantick Hot Totty was Best Puppy. West Midlands Terrier had Jeonty Minnie MeMe BOB, Golden Spurs Reserve Best of Breed and Jeonty Letty Be Magic Best Puppy. Sporting Terrier of Yorkshire saw Amhard High Flyer getting the nod for Best of Breed and Amhard Manhatten was Reserve as well as Best Puppy. There aren’t a lot of Glen of Imaal Terriers in Scotland so showing is done in the highly competitive Variety classes but Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae is certainly getting noticed. A Puppy Group 4 was excellent but then at Coatbridge, Airdrie & District BAVNSC Terrier, Terrier G1, Terrier Puppy G1 and Best Puppy In Show were all added to her precocious bow.

Jeonty Junior Fire and Ice was “The Man” in Eindhoven and he did it again at Gent as well as being pulled in the Group. Boudivella Osca also made the trip over and as Junior is still that, a junior, he picked up the CACIB.

The brains of the breed were not being rested. Quite a few Rally qualifications have been won but two ladies send the BIG news for Glens.Ginny spent two recent weekends having fun at AKC Scent Work trials.  She finished her Novice Buried & Interior titles to add to her already completed Exterior & Container titles, becoming the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to earn an overall AKC Scent Work Novice (SWN) title!  She also earned a Container Novice Elite title (SCNE) by qualifying for the 10th time in that class. Qualifying runs were also received in the Advanced Interior & Advanced Exterior classes (4th place)!   Louise sends news of Tula “Here’s to Tula who earned her Elite Division Level 1 Nose Work title today-another first for Glens. She makes me proud every day”.

Very well done and huge congratulations!! Don’t forget to send along anything you think may be of interest to the worldwide Glen family.

It’s Crufts week but first let’s catch up

42 Glen of Imaal Terriers may be exhibiting at Crufts at the end of the week but we need to catch up with what has been going on recently. In the USA Finnabair Ardmore Ned took two Group 2s at Greater Fort Myers Dog Club, Abberann Torcan was also a double group placer with a Gp2 & Gp4 in St Louis (guessing the Belle City Winter Classic) and Jeonty Golden Memo was BOB (twice) at Silver Bay Kennel Club. Her sister Jeonty Minnie MeMe was Best Puppy AVNSC and then Group 3 at Newark. Finland saw Pearytail Candy McCoy go BOB at her last Puppy Show and Glenrosedale Ardal Ridire Ain Ri became a Baltic & Lithuanian Champion.

Pride of announcement though has to go to Winston & Griff. Kelli writes that “Winston had a great time with Barn Hunt this weekend earning a first and second place with 2 qualifying legs plus High in class & Griffin spent the weekend chasing the plastic bag for the coursing ability test and he earned 6 qualifying legs towards his coursing ability advanced”. Great action shots by Mark Brown

Nice going everybody

Association Championship Show

The Glen of Imaal Terrier Association Championship Show is a chance for the many companion owners to bring their dogs to meet “the family” and possibly have a go in the ring and this year was no exception. Always nice to meet and talk to Glen enthusiasts that aren’t often seen. Judge Pat Clayton was awarding her first set of Challenge certificates in the breed and she finished off the Top Glen of the Year, Ch Romainville Billy Wizz, in fine style with the dog ticket and Best In Show. Reserve Best In Show, Best Veteran and Reserve CC was awarded to Ch Beatrix’s Boy with Windarra from Donvaleset who was not looking his ten years. Best Opposite Sex and the Bitch CC also went to a Veteran, 7 year old Ch Donvaleset Brier. The Reserve Bitch CC, Ch Jeonty MeMe Fern, headed a family affair as she was the dam of both the Best Puppy in Show, Jeonty Diamond Ring, and the Best Puppy Bitch Jeonty Minie MeMe.

Congratulations to everybody and well done to the catering team for a fabulous chocolate cake! Secretary Ann Hardy wasn’t at the show as she broke her leg the previous Sunday. It’ll be a long road back for her but everybody sends their best wishes for recovery
