Late November but the round up this week is HUGE news. First let’s hear from Laura “Niamh earned her PACH title at the Talcott Mt. agility trial in Springfield, MA today. She is the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to do so. To achieve a PACH – Preferred Agility Champion, she had to earn 20 Double Qs, qualifying in both Standard and Jumpers courses on the same day and 750 points, one point for every second under course time. I’m very proud of her. PACH GCH Niamh of Cnoc CD BN PCD RE MXP5 MXPS MJP5 MJPS PAX MFP T2BP JE RATO CGCA”.
Then it’s Monique with the now 16 year old Oliver “Today in New Hampshire, Oliver earned two NACSW Nose Work titles: NW3-C (Container search) and NW3-I (Interior search). He is the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to earn all four NW3 Element titles by successfully passing each element at 3 different trials! So proud that my old guy is still capable of having fun and earning titles to boot! So to give him his full due it’s ARBA CH. Rainbow Springs Oliver Twist SE, RN, RATI, RATS, NW1, NW2, NW3-V, NW3-E, NW3-C, NW3-I, L1I, L1V, SD-NB, SD-NC, SD-NE, SD-AD
For an incredible, unbelievable third report in one weekend Winston, assisted by Mark, earned his Canine Nose Work (NW2)title with the National Association of Canine Scentwork.
A late catch up from Jeff Dairiki “Last weekend, at the Whidbey Island KC show in Monroe, WA, our Ciarán went BOB both days: Saturday under judge Robert Hutton, Sunday under judge Mareth Kipp. Saturday’s win, a five-point major, finished his championship, making him “CH Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette CA RATS”! Ciarán’s mother, CH Liberty’s Colors of Keadeen (Violet), took BOS both days, and brother CH Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas (Emmet) was SEL both days, so it was all in the family.
Over in Finland it was a back to back weekend for the Jyvaskyla International. On Saturday it was BOB Gleann Bigwig and BOS Pearytail Artless Tess and Sunday BOB to Gleann Una Noonan with BOS Gleann Bigwig. The Danish Terrier Club also had a double weekend with Saturday seeing Hammersmolles Pandora at the top with Gleann Willie the Whale Best Dog. Sunday saw a reverse of the placings with Pandora going onto get BIS 2 Junior! In Germany My Dear Fellow Bealtaine de Coco took home the Best of Breed rosette.
Over in America Kilkenny’s Granite Aine of Claddagh was BOB at Agathon KC and at Golden Vally it was back to back Best of Breeds for Jeonty Golden Memo.
Many congratulations to everybody!
