Glen of Imaal Terrier people; showing is in their blood.
In Germany it’s been a very nice couple of shows for Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice with Best of Breed at Monchengladbach and Groningen.

The 2016 World Show may have been in Moscow but Glen of Imaal Terrier people were there. It was a three day event for Terrier folk and a 3 day success for Gleann Bigwig & Pearytail Artless Tess as they got BOB & BOS 3 days out of 3. Meomodo Fantasterrific Arien was Junior World Winner with Pearytail Candy McCoy Best Junior on the other two days.
At Blackpool Young May Moon took Best of Breed with Bendikes Edward Bear at Squiresbeach Best Opposite. Over in America Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore took top spot in Glens at both Mid-Hudson & Shawangunk KC whilst Keadeen Blue Boy for Bluesette did “beauty & brains” par excellence with an Owner Handler Group 3 and obtained his Barn Hunt Q!
As a Breed we aren’t often awarded with Best In Show but we have a new recruit to those hallowed ranks. Kingcottage Boogie on Basil took Best Not Separately Classified, then the Terrier Group and then the ultimate, ultimate finger point for Best In Show at Carmarthen! His photograph was sent but the editorial decision has been made to go with the rosette shot as Beth’s OMG he gave it us face isn’t exactly flattering on her.
Another week and more smiling Glen of Imaal Terrier owners!
In Finland Gleann Elite Ellie took 2 BOBs ahead of her respective brothers, Gleann Expert Edvard and Gleann Eager Edgar. Over at Latvian Winners Pearytail Bonnie B Goode took BOB and became a Latvian Champion. Interestingly cats are shown at the same time-is there any other country that shows the two species together? At the Northern Terrier Club in Sweden McNally’s Gracie became a Swedish Champion.
The Glen Association Show saw Best Dog, Best Veteran and Best In Show go to Grizzlemarsh Digby with Best Bitch to Romainville Fade to Grey. The two Reserves were, respectively, Amhard Just in Thyme and Young May Moon.
Over in the States Theresa Nesbitt writes that “Abberann Torcan had a nice “weekend in Wheaton” with a Group 2 and Group 4 win. His little sister Abberann Derbla “Ava” made a stunning American debut starting off with a major over 3 champion bitches.” Keadeen Blue Boy for Bluesette also had a great weekend with 3 Best of Breeds, 2 owner handler Group 1s and a Terrier Group 2.
Niamh (with Laura) has staked another title in the “brains” stakes when she qualified Senior in Barn Hunter for the fabulous title of RATS and Oliver earned first place and his 2nd Excellent Speed leg at the Performance Scent Dogs trial in Westborough, MA
….Glen of Imaal Terriers doing their thing with their people.
A double show weekend in Ireland with Abberann Phelan having to bow the paw to the ladies at both Munster & Cork. Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore was BOB at the former and Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanna at the latter. At Southern Counties Championship Show Pajantick Star trooper was BOB with Pajantick Rockahula Best Bitch.
The weekend of the Estonian Winners saw Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo and Pearytail Artful Tess both getting the Estonian 2016 title with Milo the nod for BOB. At Tallinn Group Show BOB went to Pearytail Candy McCoy and over the weekend McJakes Angel-Lina become an Estonian Junior Champion. Back in Finland Kuhmo Group Show saw Gleann Easter Eamonn take BOB.
Over in the States Keadeen Blue Boy for Bluesette was 4th in the Group at Yokima Valley KC and Daulton’s Rory also notched up a placement at Toledo KC with a G2 in OH and a G4 in the Terrier group. Ladies Kennel Club (Inc) had Kilkenny Granite Great Gatsby get the nod for BOB whilst at Gateway Terrier Show Abberann Stars and Stripes Ruari became a Champion.
Monique Anthony writes “Oliver qualified and earned first place in the Excellent Speed class yesterday at the Performance Scent Dogs trial in Raymond, NH! The funniest part of the day was when he attacked some Barn Hunt tubes just outside one of the search areas and ran down the clock. Birch, anise or clove hides cannot compete with BH tubes, even if empty”
Applause to you all!!
