Yes you read it right. An Owner Handler Best In Show, a Best Puppy In Show and a Bred By Exhibitor Best In Show as well as an OHG3. This must be the best set of results from a cluster EVER for Glen of Imaal Terriers!

Over in Virginia Northern Neck KC (how did it get the name?) saw Abberann Owen Roe take Best of Breed with Abberann Derbla Best Bitch at both of their shows. Greater Fredericksburg held two shows with Derbla taking BOB at one with Ber-D-Mar Sweet William Best Opposite. At the second it was Owen Roe again BOB (with G4) and Derbla Best Opposite. Clearwater KC had Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock taking the Glen of Imaal honours.

Finland has started their show year and at Kajaani International Gleann Una Noonan was Best of Breed with Gleann Indico Indy Best Dog.

What an incredible weekend indeed.

 

Another week and another Best In Show

Wow, Glen of Imaal Terriers are doing well at the moment. At The French Terrier Club Show Pajantick Razamataz took Best of Breed and then Best In Show. Well done indeed. The European Winners was in Poland this year and Glens attended from Austria, Denmark, England, Finland, Germany & Poland. Cairdiulacht Aoife NicAlainna from Austria was Best Of Breed with Finn Glenn Glen Limited Edition from Poland was Best Opposite. Hammersmolles Star Hercules was the Best Junior and Spirit of Ireland Beautiful was the Best Veteran. In Finland Lahti puppy show saw Gleann Kooky Kanye take Best of Breed with BOS to Gleann Kinda Kim K. At Birmingham Gundog & Terrier Jeonty Letty Be Magic was BOB.

Over in America Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas was in Illinois for the Prarieland Classic and had a very nice trip. Best of Breed at Champaign Illinois KC, Mattoon KC & Sandemac with a Gp3 at Champaign. Opposite To him was Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta, Abberann Learning To Fly at Glendalough and Abberann Black Velvet Band by Galore. He was Best Opposite though at Illinois Capitol KC when Black Velvet Band took the BOB ribbon for the ladies

Ginny (and Monique for writing) regularly keeps the “brains” section running. “Ginny qualified with a 1st place in Open Jumpers Preferred at the AKC Agility trial at Paws n Effect in CT. Then she had a perfect run, again 1st place, in the Novice Standard Preferred class for her 3rd Q and her NAP title! Woohoo! It’s been a couple of good agility w/ends for team Ginny!”

Discover Dogs was in London and, as always, the enthusiasts who man these booths, whatever part of the world they are in deserve our thanks. Bella, Candy, Dylan, Leia & Mutley flew the flag proudly in front of hundreds of people. Many thanks to them and their people!

Great weekend folks.

Starting September with Group placings!

Glen of Imaal Terriers are certainly off the blocks for September with Group placing in Finland and America. Marfidal Pleasant Surprise was BOB & Gp4 at the Vetcare Show with Marfidal Cosmopolitan Diva Best Bitch. Also in Finland at Kihnio Gleann Ho Ho Hogan was Best of Breed with Finnabair Broc Rua Arda of Gleann BOS.

Over in the States at Durham KC Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea was BOB & G2 whilst at Jaxon KC Abberann Phelan was BOB & G3 with Kilkenny’s Across The Universe To Setanta Best Opposite. Tipperary That Girl was BOB at Beaver County KC, Fort Steuben KC & St Clairesville Ohio KC and picked up OHG4 at the last two.. Longview-Kelso KC saw Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas Take the top spot in the breed on both days and then G2 both days-Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right was Best Opposite. Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock was at a cluster in Kentucky and picked up BOB at all of them.

Canada had Abberann Derbla Best of Breed at Cornwall District KC and Gleann Holy Hannah was at the Atlantic Terrier Association with a very nice prize for Best of Breed, a Glen of Imaal cushion. A two day show in Bremen (Germany) saw McJake’s Angels Son Djuke take BOB on the first day, Spirit of Ireland Batida de Coco Best Bitch & Best Veteran. Day 2 was again Batida winning Best Opposite but this time Best of Breed went to Madra Athas Conner Chead Ghra.

Nice things being heard about the Glen Association weekend. 21 Glens were there so an excellent opportunity to meet the breed

Well done all!!

 

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!

 

It’s June already

Half way through the year and the Glen of Imaal Terrier train continues on. At The Glen Association Open Show Best In Show was awarded to Boudivella Osca with Romainville Izzywhizzy Best Bitch and Reserve Best In Show. Best Veteran Kirikee Celtic Warrior with Amhard Off The Cuff Best Puppy. Southern Counties saw Romainville Bilbo Baggins Best of Breed.

Estonian Winners weekend: Gleann Cotton Cody and Gleann Una Noonan took the 2018 title with Cotton Cody Best of Breed. At the Special Terrier Show held there BOB Glen was Madra Athas Ceinlys Chead Ghra, Best Opposite Sex Gleann Indico Indy. The news for Glens though is that Finnabair Broc Rua Arda took Puppy Group 3! In Australia Taufield Queen Of Tara took Runner Up Neuter in Group so she now has her Neuter title

Over in America at Toledo Kennel Club Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen was BOB. Salisbury (North Carolina) KC had Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock Best of Breed and Kilkenny’s Middleton of Irish Spirit was OHG2. American Classic repeated the win at Greater Hickory KC. Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight took 2x OHG3 & OHG4 at a cluster in Columbia New Jersey.

Kate Flack sends news:-Four shows at the Fargo-Moorhead KC cluster amongst very warm summer weather, high winds, rain and thunder storms. GCHS Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glasawarded a 2 x Group 2, two Group 3’s, OHG2 and an Nat’l Owner Handler RBIS. Emmet’s 10-month-old sister, Keadeen’s Something Like a Phenomenon, also made the journey, receiving valuable ring experience and several compliments from judges

Congratulations everyone

 

Just wow!!!!

Last week it was easy to decide which Glen of Imaal Terrier should lead the “honour roll” round up and it’s easy this week as well. Please everybody, stand and applaud Billy Tow vom Au Deich who, at the Dutch Championship Show, took Best Dog for the 7th time and Best In Show for the 4th. Oh yes, he was Best Veteran as well. Best Bitch was his kennel mate McJake’s Aivy. Another Veteran Best of Breed was Abberann Conan who added yet another ribbon to his tally at The National. Best Bitch came from the other end of the scale when Jeonty Jyn A New Hope got the nod from Junior. It was worth the trip for the Abberanns as Cosmic Cowboy was Reserve Dog & Reach For The Stars Ryanne Reserve Best Bitch. Best Puppy Amhard Off The Cuff

Nice to hear from Australia where “Neuter” titles are on offer. Taufield Queen of Tara was Runner Up Neuter and Best Neuter at her last two shows which gives her 96 out the 100 points needed. The European Winners in Dortmund saw Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice increasing his reputation with Best of Breed, Fire & Ice Naomi was Best Bitch. In Ireland Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore represented Glens in the Group ring. Gleann is an affix that regularly appears here but this week the first mention is from Canada and Dartmouth Kennel Club with a Group 4 and two Group 2s for Gleann Holy Hannah. Crossing the sea to Scandinavia and Jarvenpaa with Gleann Indico Indy as BOB and Gleann Halloween Hattie Best Opposite. Oulu Nordic Show saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard with the big ribbon and Gleann Halloween Hattie as Best Bitch. Gleann Ho Ho Hogan was Best of Breed at Seinajoki Group Show.

In America at Ravenna Kennel Club Tipperary That Girl was Best of Breed with Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen Best Dog at one show with the results repeated at another but it was G4 for American Girl & BBEG2 for Sailor John. Klanath Dog Fanciers had a back to back set of shows and Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas had a OHG2 and OHG3 whilst Keadeen’s Something Like A Phenomenon was Best Opposite both days but she went one better with a fabulous Puppy Group 1. Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight at Chambersburg KC Shows also registered the Glen in the Group ring with a OHG2 and a G4.

You all do us proud!!!
