Catching up with A LOT!

Holy Macaroni, Glen of Imaal Terriers have been doing us all so proud over the last couple of weeks it’s hard to know where to start!

Canada can take the honours this week as it is a very rare breed there in the showring so Groups are the thing for competition. Gleann Holy Hannah took a Gp1 and Gp4 United Kennel Club and Group 2 x2 at Moncton. Abberann Derbla 2 X Gp3 at Credit Valley Kennel Club plus Gp4 Georgina KC. Staying on that Continent and Gleann Damn Daisy, holidaying there from Finland, is getting seriously noticed with a GP3 at Central Florida KC, GP4 at Jacksonville Dog Fanciers plus BOB at the 2nd show, 2 BOBs at Treasure Coast KC of Florida, BOB Seminole Dog Fanciers Association plus GP2 at Seminole’s second show, Greater Ocala Dog Club was another BOB. BOS at Jacksonville was a new name to the blog, Long Lake Pharms Angus Fuller. Welcome to showing Glens and love your kennel name. Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock was BOB Space Coast Kennel Club of Palm Bay and the second Greater Ocala.

Leaving Florida and going to Pennsylvania Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea was BOB Greater Philadelphia Dog Fanciers Association & both Kennel Club of Philadelphia. Tipperary American Girl took BOB Penn Treaty KC. Heading north and west Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta, Gp4 at Pontiac KC & Greater Muskegon KC, BOB at Grand Rapids KC, Dayton KC, Lima KC with Abberann Lament for Owen Roe picking up GP4 at Kalamazoo KC and Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore OHG4 at Pontiac KC and Grand Rapids. Daulton’s Gedunk Malone from Emerald Isle picked up the last BOB of the weekend from Ohio

Northern Europe and Gleann Una Noonan has to do the lead in. Best Opposite at the Norwegian Winners as well as BOS at Jyvaskyla (Day 2) she was Best veteran in Breed day one and then took Best Veteran in Show out of over 70 veterans competing for the honour! Gleann Bigwig was BOB at the Norwegian Winners to her and Gleann Indico Indy at Jyvaskyla. Day 1 of that show saw Gleann Cotton Cody & Gleann Dear Dandelion taking the top honours. To Norway again and Rosears Master of The House was BOB Nordic Winners with BOS Pearytail Bonnie B Goode. Vaxjo (Sweden) was a BOB for Rosears Master of The House with Rosears Nugget of Gold Best Bitch. Flipping to the Danish Winners and Cairdiulacht Diarmuid MacMiolmor took Best and BOS was Rosears Nugget of Gold. Gleann Kooky Kanye was BOB at Lempäälä Puppy Show with Best Opposite Sex to Meomodo Dancing Angel. Two Best of Breeds in Germany for My Dear Fellow Calimero The Angel and in Rotterdam Amhard Manhattan took Best of Breed and his Dutch Junior Championship. Belgium to finish off and Boudivella Osca took BOB at both the Euro Dog Show & Benelux with Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage taking Best Opposite at both.

Said it had been a serious bit of breed promotion and it isn’t done yet. The “brains” department was also flying the flag. Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae passed her Silver Good Citizens and “Poppy” (need a name) in America also took her Good Citizens and earned 90 out of 100 in Rally Advanced. Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette qualified RATCHX7 which makes him the highest qualified barn Hunting Glen in the USA. Daulton’s Captain Jack of Roseglen took his BCAT title to show how incredibly diverse Glens are as a breed.

All over the world Glen of Imaal Terrier folk regularly give their time to promote the breed at many exhibitions and events. The National Pet Show was held recently and Alfie, Basil, Gil, Inga and Murfi showed everybody just what a Glen is. It’s also great when breed owners decide to get together “just for fun” as happened recently with the New Jersey Fall Glen Gathering.

All of us are wowed with your dedication and talent to show the breed in so many places!

Catching up

Where to start? We like to give great Glen of Imaal Terrier things the first shout so this week it was a toss of the coin and it came down heads so “the boys” are the breed’s lead in guys. Kelli sends news that “Griffin and Winston received their AKC Trick Dog Elite Performer (TKE)  titles! The new Elite Performer title is the highest level trick title and requires the dog to perform 10 tricks from the advanced and performer level tricks with at least 5 props and there must be a story.” It’s a first for Glens and if you want to see just what the boys can do take a look at You Tube The boys weren’t the only brains in action as Monique writes about Ginny “who Q’d in 3 classes at the Performance Scent Dogs trial in CT. She qualified in Advanced Buildings and then did very well in both Advanced Containers classes, earning a 2nd place in the first class and finishing her title in the 2nd class! ”

If the coin had come up tails the first news would have been of Boudivella Osca taking Best of Breed in Switzerland (as well as Utrecht) and so obtaining his International Championship title. Not to be outdone Romainville Uptown Girl and Boudivella Tegan also obtained their Swiss Championships. Not something that usual at all for Glens whelped in the UK. Blackpool Championship Show saw another first for Glens. Romainville Becks Blue for Zippor was Best of Breed with Jeonty Dreams a Dream with Karensbrae Best Bitch & Best Puppy. She was also taken into the YKC Terrier Stakes and won that, a first for Glens? Running with the “blimey we’re good theme” is a Group placing in Holland, again not a usual occurrence, but Jeonty Junior Fire and Ice was nodded to Gp4 at Zwolle.

In Finland Marfidal Santa Baby was BOB with Pearytail Donald Dump Best Opposite (nice entry of 19 Glens) at Kotka whilst in Rovaniemi Gleann Gildea with Nelli annexed the Best of Breed rosette with Glenrosedale Ardal Ridire Ain Ri was Best Dog. Aura Group Show Highlanders Dream Casper took BOB and Gleann Funnyfifi Stiubhard Best Bitch. Salo Dog Show saw Glenrosedale Caireann Chasdubh as Best with Breed with Hammersmolles Rocket Saturn Best Opposite Sex.

In America Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend has been having a great run. Over a couple of weeks he took 3x Group 2, one Group 3 and 2x Group 4. The results from the Tampa cluster saw Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic of Castlerock Best Opposite to him. Western Pennysylvania KA was a triumph for Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore and Echo Hills KC of Ohio saw Finnabair Broc Rua Pegasus with Shorlyne Best of Breed. And finally another tremendous US KC name. Please let Lewiston-Auburn Kennel Club of Maine be as good as it’s name. Glendalough’s Fergus O’Quinn wasn’t really bothered though as he took Best of Breed. From Clackamas KC (Oregon) Jeff Dairiki sends Ciarán, Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette, had a great weekend going BOB both days.  Saturday’s judge was Linda Wells. Sunday he went on to place fourth in the Terrier group under judge Lorraine Bisso.  Ciarán also completed three qualifying master Barn Hunt runs, earning his RATCHX5! Stella, Keadeen’s Second Star to the Right, went BOS both days.  Chance, Keadeen’s by Happy Chance, went WD/BOW on Saturday; Tristan, Keadeen’s Happy Go Lucky, took WD/BOW on Sunday.  Lulu, Keadeen’s Luck be a Lady, went WB both days. Quinn, Kilkenny’s Love and Happiness, was awarded select dog both days.” Kate Flack has also been busy “The bifurcated 2018 Montana ‘death circuit’ is behind us …10 show days in 12 days. Stamina is Emmet’s (Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas) middle name! He brought home 3 Terrier Group rosettes (two Third Place and 1 Fourth Place) along with seven NOHS group placements (3 OHGr 1’s, 2OHGr 2s and 2OHGr3).” 

Great session everybody and, as usual, you all do the breed proud!

 

Count them…….seven plus two!

Glen of Imaal Terriers aren’t a breed that feature over much in Group top placings but the round up this week brings in an incredible seven!

Arcadia Florida saw a cluster and Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend getting Best of Breed on all four days plus Groups 2, 3 & 4. Best opposite to him was Finnabair Cattskill Goldie. Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette, on his way home back to the north-west, stopped over in Idaho for two Best of Breeds at Lizard Butte Kennel Club & two at Idaho Capital City Kennel Club where he picked up a OHG3 and OHG2. Mad River Valley KC saw another group placement for Glens when Kilkenny’s Middleton of Irish Spirit took OHG4. In New York state Daulton’s Princess C Hatteras took a couple of Best of Breeds and clocked up number seven group placement for Glens with a OHG2.

Jyvaskyla (Finland) was a Best of Breed for Highlander’s Dream Casper with Pearytail Candy McCoy Best Bitch on day 1 & day 2 was a win for Gleann Bigwig. In Germany it was the Bundessieger weekend and big success for the Juniors with both the National and International shows having the same results, Best of Breed Gleann Holly at Spirit of Ireland with Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice Best Dog.

The big road trip over to Montgomery & back (four weeks in total) for the Dairiki boys wasn’t just for exhibition ribbons as Jeff writes “This weekend in Boise Quinn passed four of four master runs at the Valley Barn Hunt trials, earning his RATCHX title (as well as passing two of two crazy 8 runs, earning his CZ8B title.) Ciarán passed both of his master runs yesterday, earning high in class in both.

When you look at the gallery you’ll see a picture that doesn’t seem to fit. It’s Keadeen Second Star to the Right in the Group ring at Montgomery last week, the photograph arrived too late. Even though the top says seven group placements Glens probably had eight as the news has only come in unofficially about one of them……hint…hint if you haven’t sent. Here it is. Welcome to a new name for the weekend round up, Abberann Black Velvet Band by Galore who took 2 Best of Breeds and OHG1 & 2 in Oklahoma so it’s actually a tremendous NINE group placements!!!!!

Brilliant weekend everybody

It’s October….

…and still Glen of Imaal Terrier people continue on.

A weekend of shows in the Ukraine saw Rosears Master of the House take Best of Breed both days with Caireann Chasdubh take Best Opposite one day and Gleann Elite Ellie the other. In Finland the Loviisa Puppy Show was a triumph for Gleann Indico Indy as she was waved to Group 2. Staing in Europe, and this time Germany. Rostock had a CAC and a CACIB show. Hadberg Xzibit was triumphant both days and My Dear Fellow Alwine de CoCo was Best Bitch one day and My Dear Fellow Beltaine de CoCo the other.

As it’s the run up to the Montgomery Cluster Glen of Imaal people from all over the States are travelling east which is giving some nice entries. At Terrier Club of Michigan Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow took Best of Breed with Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas Best Dog. Monroe Kennel Club was a BOB (and OHG4) for Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette with Best Bitch going to Caoimhe of Pine Meadow and on day 2 Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas took the honours with Kilkenny’s Across The Universe at Setanta

Word of how the Glen of Imaal booth had gone on at Malvern Autumn Show World of Animals arrived too late for last week’s round up but the word was one of “success” in all quarters. If anybody would like to do their bit at the National Pet Show at the NEC on November 4-5 Tony Hadley, via email or telephone 07577582182 would love to hear from you. Who knows you may get to see Supervet himself!

The breed brains were operating in Ginny as Monique reports “Ginny qualified in 2 AKC Fast CAT trials (100 yard dash) on Saturday in New Jersey and then 5 of 8 Novice odor classes at the first New England AKC Scent Work trials in New Hampshire on Sunday”

Great weekend everybody!!

Busy or what!

Things got a bit behind hand reporting on Glen of Imaal Terrier wins but now the highs of Crufts have already started to recede into memory (except for the Sage family of course) it’s time to catch up.

As it’s just been St Patrick’s Day we’ll start there with a BOB for Abberann Reach for the Stars Ryanne and Best Opposite for Abberann Conan but at Celtic Winners the day after Conan showed the breed’s Veteran Power by taking BOB over Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore. Jumping over to mainland Europe and it was Best of Breed for Highlander’s Dream Casper in Lithuania whilst Gleann Dear Dandelion was BOS. Riga International was a win for Gleann Dear Dandelion with Best Dog going to Rosears Master of the House. Lehre in Germany saw McJake’s Angels Son Djuke take Best Opposite to My Dear Fellow Brunhilde de Coco Best of Breed.

Jeff Dairiki sends news: Ciarán, (GCHB Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette CA RATCH) has had a nice run of shows.  After returning from his AOM at Westminster, he took BOB at all four days of the Albany, Oregon cluster at the end of February, finishing his bronze grand championship.  (He also was awarded an OHG1 on the first day of that cluster.)  Last weekend, he continued his streak by taking BOB (and OHG2) both days at the Seattle KC shows.

A couple of back to back shows at Monticello (New York) Kennel Club had Abberann Derbla Group place at both events with a 4 and a 2. Down in Florida Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock was Gp4 at Palm Beach County whilst in Kentucky Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta was BOB at Mid-Kentucky KC with Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore BOS. Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas was BOBOH and took OHG3. At Louisville KC Emmet again repeated his OHG3 but was also BOB with Across The Universe taking Best Opposite.

Kate Flack writes:-Ended the Louisville Ky show today, and I could not be prouder of Emmet – GCH CH Keadeen’s Sir Emmet …. Flew in to this 3200+ dog show and four days later we leave with 2 Best of Breed awards, & 3 Best in Breed Owner Handled (OH). On top of that we won 3 group placements In the large and competitive OH terrier group each of the 3 days it was offered. Watching and participating in the regular terrier groups with nationally known handlers and top ranked dogs was a privilege. Wonderful to see the top dogs in their breeds all competing for 4 spots and a shot at Best in Show

Great going everybody!!!
