Catching up

Championship, Open, Breed, Variety, Brains & serious socilising..Glen of Imaal Terriers have been doing their stuff this weekend.

Where to start this weekend? Finland as the breed’s fabulous Veterans are saluted. At Hyvinkaa Group Show Gleann Una Noonan was Best of Breed, Best Veteran & Group 3. marfidal Rain Dance was Best Opposite Sex to her. In Tallinn Rosears Master of the House was BOB whilst at the Danish Winners Gleann Gildea with Nelli was Best of Breed and Gleann Ho Ho Hogan Best Dog. The Danish Club Specialty Show on the following day had Abberann Celtic Princess in the top spot with Gleann Ho Ho Hogan Best Dog.

A bit quieter weekend in America (people getting prepared for Montgomery perhaps) but still Group placements.  Two Group 2s for Kilkenny Across The Universe at Setanta at Sheboygan and a OHG4 for Tipperary That Girl who was Best Bitch to Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friends BOB at Butler County who Himself then took a Group 2 at the second Butler County Show. West Volusia KC saw Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock take Best of Breed.

Glens were in varieties in the UK and most successfully. Boudivella Osca was at Bedfordshire Canine Society where he took Best NSC, Group 4 and 1st in the Vulnerable Breed Stakes. Up in Scotland Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae was at Perthshire CC and was rewarded with a Group 1 placement from NSC Terrier.

Monique writes that “Ginny earned her AKC Advanced Interior Scent Work title on Sunday.  This title combined with the 3 earned last weekend in Advanced Buried, Container, and Exterior completes the requirements for her overall Scent Work Advanced (SWA) title!” and the Dutch Glen Games in the Netherlands were evidently a total blast and the NE Glen Gathering in Massachusetts had a wonderful time practising sociability for their big 25th next year!

Great weekend everybody.

What a First!

Glen of Imaal Terriers triumph in many fields but how about this…..Laura Trainor writes:- Niamh (GCH PACH Niamh of Cnoc CD PCD BN RE MXP9 MXPG MJP7 MJPS PAX2 MFP T2BP JE RATM CGCA TKI) earned her RATCH today at Central Bark. This makes her the first Triple Champion Glen earning Championships in three different disciplines! Just awesome and then Jeff Dairiki writes:- both boys hunted as well as they ever have this weekend at The Club at Argus Ranch’s Barn Hunt trials. Both dogs had a 100% Q-rate through the long weekend! That was just enough for Ciarán to earn his RATCHX6 and Quinn his RATCHX5 in the final trial of the weekend. (Both dogs notched up Crazy 8 titles as well — Ciarán platinum, and Quinn gold.) What a weekend for the breed in other disciplines.

Porvoo All Breed Show in Finland saw Rosears Master of the House BOB with Gleann Una Noonan Best Bitch & Best Veteran. The N.I. Terrier Association Group Championship Show was a Best of Breed for Abberann Cosmic Cowboy and kennelmate Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Best Opposite Sex. London & Home Counties Terrier was where Wickholm Breaking Dawn got the nod over Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm and at Lochabers Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae took 5th, and money, in a huge Open Bitch Stakes (not bad at 13 months old) and then won Good Citizens with over 20 in the class…….oh yes and £10. In The States at Umpqua KC Keadeen Second Star To The Right was BOB and she repeated it at South Oregon Kennel Club. The exhibiting biggie of the weekend was Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta winning the Terrier Group both days in Kenosha Wisconsin and Reserve Best in Show on Saturday.

You all do us so proud.

Beginning the Year with “of the Year”

Happy New Year to anybody and everybody connected in any way with Glen of Imaal Terriers.

The beginning of a new year means the announcements of the various Glens of the Year from the one before. Even though it is only January 2nd some have already declared. In the UK the No.1 was Golden Spurs with Top Puppy being shared between Boudivella Tegan & Jeonty Jyn A New Hope. Finland saw Highlander’s Dream Casper be awarded Glen of The Year with Gleann Indico Indy Top Puppy.

The USA “sort of” declares two. As the country is so big and there are so many (often small to European eyes) shows Top Dogs are declared from All Breed and Breed standings:-one deals with Group placings, Group wins and Best In Shows and the other deals with wins against their own breed. Remarkably the one and two in both rankings are the same, just places changed. Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend is Top Glen in All Breed and number 2 in Breed standings and Kilkenny’s Across The Universe To Setanta is number one Breed Glen and number 2 All Breed.

Congratulations everybody and if other countries would like to send their top results they can be included with welcome

What a busy weekend

Top spot for the Glen of Imaal Terrier catch up must be America this week. The beginning of October is the biggie in the US terrier world of what is known as the Montgomery Cluster which is four shows. Number one was the first Hatboro with a win for Kilkenny’s Across The Universe of Setanta with Ber-D-Mar William O’Shea Best Opposite. Hatboro 2 saw Abberann Phelan (down from Canada) make a strike for the males with Keadeen Second Star To The Right Best Bitch. Devon was a repeat of Hatboro One and that it was Montgomery and it was a triumph for the Glens that had come all the way over from the North West of America when Second Star To The Right was awarded Best of Breed (3 out of the 4 days going to bitches) and Best Dog to Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas. What a fabulous day for the Tighes to have bred both winners at such a show.

It was a double at South Wales Kennel Association as well. Gleann Dynamo Man at Jeonty took his 3rd ticket and Best of Breed whilst Jeonty Jyn a New Hope was the Bitch CC winner and Best Puppy; father and daughter The two Reserves were also a double as Boudivella Osca and Romainville Uptown Girl are a son and mother. The Gleann affix had a marvellous weekend as Gleann Holy Hannah was Group 2 in Canada, Best Puppy in Group and became a Canadian Champion one day and a Gp4 and BPIG the next, whilst in Norway Gleann Easter Eamon was Best of Breed and became a Nordic Champion to make three Champions in three different countries on the same weekend.

Tuulos had two days of shows with Jeonty Just a Dream Ansa taking BOB & Meomodo Trick or Treat taking Best Opposite one day with Rosears Master of the House & Rosears Everything U Wish The Other, BOB & BOS respectively on the other. Hyvinkaa Puppy Show saw Gleann Indico Indy get the nod for Best of Breed with Glenrosedale Dubheasa darina getting Best Bitch.

Montgomery is THE US Terrier event in more ways than one as they do agility and Barnhunt as well. Laura Trainor sends a report the Glen brains also did pretty good there with Ciaran and Quinn both getting a Q twice in Master Barnhunt, Niamh one in Master and Liam once in Instinct. Niamh also Q’d in Master Standard Agility twice and Master Jumpers once. Over in California Louise Lopez’s Sullivan was obtaining his “title ribbon for Nose Work Element Specialty Level 1 Interiors.”

Glen of Imaal Terriers Rock!!!!!

Glen owners just go on and on.

Glen of Imaal Terrier owners just keep going on and on in showing the world how good our breed is.

Can’t recollect a Romanian result before and as for calling it the Dracula Show…….it was seven Best of Breeds and a Grand Romanian Championship for Pearytail Bonnie B Goode. In Finland Porvoo All Breed Show was a BOB for Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat with Best Opposite Sex going to Marfidal Santa Baby. London & Home Counties Terrier saw Kirikee Celtic Warrior take home the big rosette.

A couple of late results from last week. The St Clairsville KC Cluster ended with Tipperary American Girl taking another Best of Breed and OHG2 with Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore Best Dog. Gleann Holy Hannah took a Group 3 and Best Puppy in Group in Canad and then followed it on with another 3 x Best Puppy in Group this weekend plus a Group 4. Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend was in Oklahoma and added two Group 4s to his increasing tally. Souhegan Kennel Club was a Best of Breed for Briarhill Beatrice. Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta had an excellent weekend at back to back shows in Des Moines, Iowa with a Group 1 & 3. Why is she with a Dachshund in the photograph? Theresa owns it as well and it took BIS so two for her in the Group ring…nice one indeed!

The Barn Hunt aficionados were having a ball.  Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc qualified in Instinct & Novice. Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas gained the last qualifier to get his Open title and then did his first Senior run and earned his first qualifier. Brains and beauty boys.

Congratulations to all

September starts with a swing

It’s rather nice to start September with a Group 1 and Best In Show3 for a Glen of Imaal Terrier. Gleann Indico Indy did it at Kihnio Puppy Show! Rosears Master of the House took Best of Breed in Estonia which gave him an Estonian & Latvian Junior Championship. In Germany Gleann Holly at Spirit of Ireland took her 2nd BOB on her second trip out.

Over in America a group of shows in Kentucky saw Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta take all 4 Best of Breeds with Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas taking Best Dog each time and also an OHG2. Beaver County KC was a win for Tipperary American Girl with Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore, Best Opposite. At St Clairesville (Ohio) Kennel Club Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore was BOB & OHG3 with Tipperary American Girl Best Bitch. American Girl repeated her BOB at Fort Steuben Kennel Association with a OHG4 with Wild Night taking Best Dog. Up in Canada Gleann Holy Hannah took a Group 4 and Best Puppy In Group

Liam (Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc) showed his “brains” by qualifying twice in Instinct for Earthdog whilst Quinn showed how good he his and obtained his Senior Earthdog!!

It was the inaugural Southern Glen Walk and Lynne Fraser sends the following.”Delighted to say that we had 10 Glens and their people who joined us for a walk on the Racecourse. It was lovely to meet in person so many people I have met through Glens on facebook and for them to meet each other, I feel that strong friendships have been formed. Everyone was very kind and we have decided that next time we would like to find a village hall in the area and have a ‘Glen gathering’ for those who would like to come.  I think that another Glen walk will definitely be in order! Thank you to everyone who came and to all the Glens for being well behaved!

Great weekend indeed everybody!!

Last weekend Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas at Coos Bay KC took a Group 3 and OH Group 3  and Sunday a Group 4 and OH Group 1. Terrier Association of Oregon was a BOB for Keadeen Second Star To The Right with Sir Emmet Best Dog. This was repeated at Portland kennel Club whilst the second Portland was again a triumph for Second Star with Keadeen’s Kind of Blue getting Best Opposite. An update from last weekend as well as Abberann Whiskey You’re the Devil got two Baby Puppy Group 1s, 1x group 2 and Best Baby Puppy in Show. Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta won the Group in South Bend.

Rosears Master of the House with Best of Breed at Porvoo whilst at the Finnish Glen Speciality Highlanders Dream Casper was Best with Gleann Una Noonan Best Bitch-a fabulous 42 Glens entered.
