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!!

At Leeds Championship Show 3rd CCs went to both the Best of Breed Golden Spurs and the Best Bitch Wickholm Breaking Dawn. Reserves were Boudivella Oscar and Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm with Boudivella Tegan Best Puppy.

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.

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!
