Is this one of the most successful weekends ever ever?

Glen of Imaal Terriers had one heck of a weekend. Amongst other things Group placements, Group wins and a Best in Show have been the order of the last few days!!!

First up has to be Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend with three Group 1 placements and a Best in Show. These were at Central Florida KC, Space Coast KC of Palm Bay-got to love that name-and Brevard Kennel Club were he was then awarded the biggie, Best In Show. Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas hasn’t exactly been slacking either with a Group 1 at Electric City KC and then Owner Handler RBIS. Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta was in Minnesota and added two Group 3s and two Group 4s whilst Abberann Derbla was notching a Group 3 in Maine. Up in Canada Abberann Phelan took a Group 3.

Back across to Europe and at Rovaniemi International BOB was Glenrosedale Ardal Ridire Ain Ri with Astoreen taking Best Bitch. At Blackpool Romainville Becks Blue for Zippoor was Best of Breed with Romainville Moira Best Opposite. Slovenia Winner went to Cairdiulacht Aoife Nicalainna the week after she took Mediterranean Winner and Enci Winner 17 in Milan. Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage and Golden Spurs were flying the Glen flag at Chesire Show, not easy in populace variety, but both came home with cards and one was a red one.

Jeff Dairiki wasn’t showing his boys in the exhibition ring but was out giving them some brain practice and writes “Ciarán went 3 for 5 in the masters ring this weekend, earning a HIC on Friday. (I never thought that would ever happen, the way he holds on to tubes.) Quinn went 5 for 5, earning his RATCH! Quinn also got to do five crazy 8 runs, earning 280 points for the weekend”

Glen of Imaal Terriers and their people….awesome!!!

Glen folk….always busy

Two choruses of “Summertime” and the Glen of Imaal Terrier world continues to shine.

At Swords Show in Ireland Abberann Conan was Best of Breed with Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne Best Bitch. In Norway (not many results from there) at Tromso International Glenrosedale Ardal Ridire Ain Ri took the top spot with Gleann Gilda with Nelli Best Opposite. Kotka International was a success for Pearytail Cherry Bomb with Gleann Eager Edgar leading the dogs.

Over in the States a win that I’m not sure has been covered before; a Bred By Exhibitor Best In Show. Does any country have this other than America? Finnabair Caatskill Bring It On at Broc Rua was the lady who annexed it at Greater Venice Florida Dog Club. Finnabair Caatskill Goldie was BOB there and Coleraine’s Hob Nobs at Caraglen BOS at one of the shows with Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend annexing BOB above Caatskill Goldie Best Opposite. St Petersburg Dog Fanciers Association saw a Group 4 for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend with Bring It On Best Bitch and at the second show it was again Double D-plus another Gp4-Finnabair Shorelyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight BB. Echo Hills Kennel Club of Ohio two day show was a (2)Best of Breed for Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow and Daulton’s Ciaran at Pine Meadow took (2)Best of Opposite Sex. Back to Back shows at Bryn Mawr (PA) saw Tipperary Columbo victorious both days ahead of Tipperary American Girl.

The Group placements continue to come with Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta Best of Breed Thurs, Friday, Saturday at Grayslake with Abberann Torcan taking it on the Sunday. Aberann Phelan has now added Canadian Champion to his tally with a Group, 2 Group 2s and a Group 3! Also hearing of a Group Placement for Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas in Idaho….anybody care to send the details? Kate saw the appeal and sends the following “Emmet and I are now nearly halfway through the annual 14 day Idaho/Montana show circuit. The circuit starts in Filer, Idaho with a 2 day show hosted by the Snake River KC show. Judges Terry Stacy and R C Williams awarded Emmet a NOHS Terrier Group 1 and 2 before we moved on to Blackfoot, Idaho. We showed 2 of the 4 Blackfoot KC show days earning a Terrier Group 4 under Judge Kenneth Berg and both a NOHS Terrier Group 1 and 2 under Judges Pamela Peat and John Wade. Now, for the last 8 days of consecutive show days spread over 3 different Montana venues: Billings, Great falls and Missoula. I’ll keep you posted –

Congratulations indeed everybody!!

Group placings galore!!

Glen of Imaal Terriers are certainly getting noticed in Groups at the moment.

In the USA Kilkennys Across the Universe at Setanta took a Group 1 at Kokomo Kennel Club, Keadeen Second Star To the Right a Group 3 at Coeur D’Alene and Finnabair Double D friend of a Friend a Gp 4 at Rhineland Kennel Club. The Owner Handler Groups are turning into a positive triumph for the breed with Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas annexing BOTH a Owner Handler Best In Show and Reserve Best In Show. Kilkenny’s Midleton of Irish Spirit also notched up an OHG1 as did Tipperary American Girl!

Canada may have only recently recognised Glens but recognised they certainly are with a Group 3, Group 4 and Best Puppy in Group for Gleann Holy Hannah and Groups 2 and 3 for Abberann Phelan.

In Europe there may not be the Group placings but there are certainly the dogs getting shown. At the Danish Terrier Club Gleann Cute Cocoon was Best of Breed and the Estonian Winners was a success for Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard with Gleann Damn Daisy Best Opposite. Helsinki International was a win for Gleann Cotton Cody with Damn Daisy once again Best Bitch. She made it three in a row at the Latvian Winners, this time to Gleann Bigwig. Turri Show was a BOB for Gleann Dear Dandelion and Best Dog was Gleann Eager Edgar

The UK saw a run of SKC, Bath, Southern Counties and the Glen Association Open Show with the top places being shared around. Scottish Kennel Club was a BOB for Amhard High Flyer with Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage taking the Bitch CC. Bath was Golden Spur and Romainville Whistle Dixie with Southern Counties seeing the first bitch BOB with Bregorrey Madam Defiance and Pajantick Razamatazz Best Opposite. The Glen Association saw Amhard High Flyer take home Best in Show with Reserve Best in Show going to the Reserve Best Dog Rollo The Great at his first ever official dog show! Best Bitch there was Romainville Razzamatazz. Best Puppy was Boudivella Tegan with Best Veteran Donvaleset Domino.

Besides the shows Glens were also at Burghley (courtesy of Nicki Atkin) for the Living Heritage Fair and Ciarin and Quinn were adding titles behind their names with RATCHX and Junior Earthdog. Monique sends special news of Ginny……qualififying for the 3rd time in Novice Buildings so earning her title today at the Performance Scent Dogs (PSD) trial in Westford, MA! She also learned two new scents this week, Anise & Clove, and was able to detect them during the Target Odor Tests.  “Star” though of this whole round up is summed up in owner Louise Lopez’s own words “I am so very, very proud of Tula! She earned her NW3 Elite title in Corvallis, Oregon today. This means she’s passed Nose Work 3 with a perfect score three times and is now qualified to compete at the Elite Level. She’s the first Glen to earn this title-such a wonderful girl”

Fabulous couple of weeks everybody and congratulations to all!

Incredibly busy few weeks!!

Glen of Imaal Terrier people never stop; new titles, new Champions, Group placings, even a Best Puppy In Show, it’s been a great few weeks.

There has been a lot of beauty but also there has been a lot of brains. Monique sends news that “Ginny had fun at the Performance Scent Dogs (PSD) trial on Saturday, qualifying in 4 out of 5 nosework classes and earning a title in Novice Containers. Also Ginny qualified for the third time in the Novice Barn Hunt class, earning her RATN title! She then moved up to the Open class for the afternoon trial and was successful again. Both of her runs were first place finishes also!” Also a celebration of (one) new title for Glens when Bregorrey Sovereign Storm added a CBAT to the end of his name by titling in the Fast CAT. Stormy was clocked at an incredible 22 mph! The American Kennel Club has just introduced a Trick Dog title. The all performing pair of Winston & Griff are the first two Glens to be awarded the titles.

Lets go showing: At WELKS Romainville Billy Whizz was nodded to BOB with Romainville Jean Genie Best Bitch and at The National Romainville Fast N’furious At Wickholm was Best of Breed with Romainville Fade To Grey BOS and getting made up to Champion. Over in Ireland Abberann Conan took home the big rosette from both South Tipperary and Fermoy, Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore & Abberann Reach for the Stars Ryanne were the respective Best Opposites. At the Dutch Glen Club Show Best In Show was Cairdiulacht Breanainn MacAngus with McJake’s Aivy Best Bitch

Fabulous news of a Best Puppy in Show for Meomodo Bohos Trick or Treat and Highlanders Dream Casper added to his BOB list (and took Group 4) with Gleann Funny Fifi Stiubhard Best Bitch. At another show Gleann Bigwig was The Man with Pearytail Candy McCoy Best Opposite. Salo Group Specialty had Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo BOB with Taramont Niamh Tirnan’Og BOS and Best Veteran. In Estonia Gleann Eager Edgar took two Best of Breeds and his Estonian Championship.

Canadian news and Abberann Phelan has started his career there with a Group 4, Group2 & Group 1-some debut indeed. First news (I think) from Idaho, at the Palous Hill Dog Fanciers back to back shows Keadeen Second Star to the Right took 2 BOBs and Gp 1 to become a Grand Champion. Kilkenny Across the Universe at Setanta added a Gp3 & 4 to her tally and Finnair Double D Friend of a Friend took four Best of Breeds and a Gp4 at Trenton & Bucks County Shows. His Best Opposites were Tipperary American Girl, Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskills Comedy Tonight & Daulton’s Tupelo Honey of Galore twice. Tipperary American Girl took her own Best of Breeds at Columbia Terrier Association of Maryland & Old Dominian KC of North Virginia where her son Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc was Best Dog. American Girl was Best Opposite again, but this time at Ber-D-Mar Nate The Great of Wicklow at Baltimore County KC. Daulton’s Tupelo Honey of Galore was also notching up the BOBs at Springfield KC, Pioneer Valley KC and South Windsor.

Terrier Club of Michigan saw Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore take BOB with Abberann Be Brave Best Opposite. Fort St Clair Kennel Club (another great KC name) had back to back shows with Kilkenny’s Middleton of Irish Spirits taking BOB both times and a OH3. Klamath Dog Fanciers had a weekend of shows with Keadeen Blue Boy of Bluesette taking BOB twice and OH4 one day with Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas getting the big rosette the other two days. Finishing off with another Group placement, this time from Abberann Derbla at St Hubert KC.

All these fabulous Glen of Imaals in the ring would only have been seen if you were at the shows. Getting the breed out and about to people is just as important and at the London Pet Show Leia, Reilly, Dylan, Candy, Toby and their respective humans flew the flag with honour!

Eukanuba Week

It’s an American Glen of Imaal Terrier round up week as, whilst the rest of the world settles down a little for Christmas, the US show scene decamps to Florida for the big Eukanuba week.

Tuesday was Space Coast KC of Palm Bay with a Best of Breed for Kilkenny’s Across The Universe at Setanta and Gleann Cotton Cody Best of Winners and Best Opposite Sex. Wednesday was Brevard Kennel Club and Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend took BOB with Finnabair Shorlyne Summer in the Caatskills BOS. Daulton’s Rory was BOBOH and then took Number 1 in the Owner handler Group. Thursday saw two new Champions with Cotton Cody taking BOB (he was first shown in October at Montgomery) and 10 month old Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadows getting the nod for Best Bitch.

The big event was the weekend with Terriers on the Sunday. The major results were a repeat of Tuesday with Kilkenny Across The Universe at Setanta Best of Breed and Gleann Cotton Cody Best Dog. Select Dog Finnabair Double D Friend Of A Friend and Select Bitch
Daulton’s Princess C Hatteras. Best of Winners Finnabair Caatskill Lightning On The Shorlyne

The UK has Discover Dogs and the AKC has Meet The Breeds-the Glen booth was awarded 3rd place in the Terrier Group competition.

Finally Monique writes:-Oliver qualified for the third time and earned a title in the Excellent Buildings class at a Performance Scent Dogs trial on Sunday.  This completed the requirements (3 qualifying excellent runs in each of 5 elements-Buildings, Exteriors, Containers, Distance, Speed) for the Scent Dog Excellent (SDE) overall title.  He is only the third dog to achieve the highest level in this nosework organization. Most of all, I am extremely proud of my 17 year old Glen of Imaal Terrier, who still amazes me with his motivation to work and fun loving spirit.

Well done everybody and particularly the superb Oliver!

Big entries for the Montgomery Cluster.

Leading on the “Montgomery Weekend” as this is THE one on the American circuit to see big entries of Glen of Imaal Terriers and this year was no exception. Hatboro 1 starts it off and it was a BOB for Abberann Torcan with his daughter, Kilkenny Across The Universe at Setanta Best Opposite Sex. Hatboro 2 saw Cormac McCarthy waved to the Top Spot and the nod going to Tipperary Cora Countess of Grantham for Best Bitch. Number 3 Show of the weekend is Devon with the Glen entry higher again. Abberann Torcan added to his tally with once again his daughter, Kilkenny Across The Universe at Setanta, Best Bitch. Number 4 is the mighty Montgomery Terrier Show and nothing could be found to top the best weekend of their careers (up to yet) of Abberann Torcan & Kilkenny Across The Universe at Setanta as they were waved again to the two top spots!

Kilkenny Best of my Love and Kilkenny Love and Happiness flew the breed flag in the Brace Group and were rewarded with Group 2

The AKC system has dogs “in the classes” and from the classes Winner Dog & Bitch is decided and these two compete for BOW. It is the points gained in the classes that make you a Champion and then you go into the Best of Breed class (often known as Specials). So the Winners are equally important when trying to make a dog up in the States. Hatboro 1 was a great start for recent import Gleann Cotton Cody with Winners Dog and Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow Winners Bitch. Hatboro 2 WB Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow again and WD Coleraine Here Comes The Sun. Here Comes  The Sun was WD again at Devon with  Finnabair Shorlyne Summer In The Caatskills  WB. Montgomery saw Finnabair Caatskill Lightening on the Shorelyne and Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight take the two Winners awards with Summer and Lightening also taking the Sweepstake Best of Sex and Best Opposite. (Sure somebody will tell me if all those similar names are in the wrong way around!)

Back in the UK South Wales Kennel Association was rather a good day for the Pajantick pair with Star Trooper taking the Dog CC with Best of Breed and Pajantick Razamataz Best Puppy. Bitch CC, making a long trip over from Ireland positively easy on the way home, was Stiubhard Bellatrix L’Estrange with the two Reserves to Boudivella Osca and Romainville Fade To Grey. A big first at the show was a Glen competing AND WINNING the YKC Stakes-the first one ever for the breed. Congratulations to Romainville Becks Blue For Zippor.

In Finland Tuulos Puppy Show saw Highlanders Dream Casper the Glen of the day and in the Turkku area the Glen people got together for a walk and a day out which is always nice.

Glen Brains were also working well as Laura Trainor reports:- Reporting on the other than conformiation competitions of the week. Jeff Dairiki & Sandra Distefano’s GCH Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette CA was the first Glen to earn his RATCH Barn Hunt title. Their Kilkenny’s Love and Happiness earned his RATO title. Laura Trainor’s CH Rainbow Springs Kylee of Cnoc CD RE OAP OJP OFP RATS CGCA earned another Barn Hunt Master qualifying score. Her GCH PACH Niamh of Cnoc CD PCD BN RE MXP7 MXPS MJP6 MJPB JE RATS CGCA earned three more Agility Master Standard qualifying scores bringing her to a total of 75 which earns her the Master Standard Preferred Gold title. Whilst elsewhere in the US Kelli Whitfield sends: Finnabair Winston O’Reilly VCD1 CDX BN GN RE JE CA THDA RATS CGCA NW2 TDCH earned his Master Barn Hunt Title(RATM) today. The last two years Winston has been sidelined with cruciate tears first on the left side and then again this spring on the right side so this was a long time coming and this was Winston’s first event after his surgery this spring. Two stainless steel legs later and lots of rehab but barn hunt is so much fun for this guy.

Many, many congratulations everybody!!
