Before we celebrate the first 2019 Glen of Imaal Terrier achievements though the last of 2018 has to be honoured, particularly as it is from the Brains Department
Monique writes “Ginny qualified for the third time and earned her title in the Excellent Jumpers Preferred class at an AKC Agility trial on Sunday(30th)”
Thought the results were all going to be American this week, as they have the better January weather, but Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae in Scotland flew the flag with a Group 3 at Bon Accord. The place many would like to be is Palm Springs and Keadeen Second Star To The Right obviously loved it as she was BOB three days out of the four with Keadeen’s Luck Be A Lady Best of Breed on the last one. Columbiana KC saw Finnabair You Should Be So Lucky take Best of Breed and it was repeated at both Rubber City shows. Tipperary Uptown Girl and Kilkenny’s Granite Aine of Cloddagh were the Best Opposites. The two Merrimack Valley Kennel Club shows saw double Group 2 placements for Abberann Lament for Owen Roe with Abberann Derbla Best Bitch.
It’s calmed down a bit before the big Scandinavian Winner Shows and the Eukanuba National Championships in Florida but some Glen of Imaal Terrier people are still out and about. A result that came in too late for last week were successes Thanksgiving Weekend at Holyoke KC with a OHG4 for Keadeen’s Due Diligence with Liberty, a BBE G2 for Liberty’s Confidence and a 4-6 month puppy Group 2 for Liberty’s Serenity. LIberty’s Amity took a 4-6 month puppy group 4 at Springfield Kennel Club. Greater Clark County KC also features the 4-6 month puppy class and out of the 11 in the Terrier Group 6 were Glens! Keadeen’s Luck Be A Lady was 2nd in the Group and BOB. Brother Keadeen’s By Happy Chance was Best Opposite.
It was 2 days of shows in Germany with Billy Tow vom Au Deich taking BOB and Best Veteran on Saturday with My Dear Fellow Brunhilde de CoCo Best Bitch. On Sunday Hadberg Xzibit took Best of Breed with McJakes Aivy Best Bitch.
The “brains” side was having a great weekend. Jeff Dairiki writes “Ciarán refused to tunnel until he had found all three of his rats, then tunneled all on his own. Classy way to earn your RATCHX3, a great time this weekend at Valley Dog Sports’ new digs!” Kelli Whitfield also sends news of her two boys “3 new AKC scent work titles for Winston (handled by Mark’s niece) novice containers, Novice interiors and novice buried hides! Plus 2 advanced Q’s in containers. Also two new titles for Griffin – Novice containers and novice buried hides. This is a new sport for AKC!”
