In Ireland at Bull Breeds Best of Breed was nodded for Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne with Best Dog to Abberann Cosmic Cowboy. In Denmark Hammersmolles Quick Decision earned her Danish Championship.The BIG event was the World Show in Leipzig and the shows around it. There was a large Finnish contingent down and it was certainly worth their while. At the German Winners Gleann Dear Dandelion was BOB and Gleann Cotton Cody Best Opposite with Fire & Ice Jazz Best Veteran. The German Terrier Club Show was a repeat result for Dandelion & Jazz but Rosears Master of The House was Best Opposite. The World Show was an incredible 47 entry for Glens. Gleann Cotton Cody took Best of Breed, Bear Dandelion Best Bitch and Billy Tow Vom Au Deich Best Veteran. On the way down to Germany Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo stopped off in Prasgue and added a Cz Ch to his name.

Canada saw 6 Group placements in 6 Shows for Abberann Phelan. 1x Gp2, 3x Gp3 and 2x Gp4. As the year draws to an end the American Show scene is hotting up. Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta was Best of Breed at Pontiac KC, Greater Muskegon KC-where she also picked up a Gp3-, Kalamazoo KC, Grand Rapids KC, Dayton KC, Sandusky & Central Ohio. Abberann The Lion Ling was Best Opposite twice with Abberann Torcan also getting the award twice along with Abberann Lament for Owen Roe taking it three times. At Dayton Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow was BOBOH and then went on to take OHG3. She was Best of Breed at Lima Kennel Club with Abberann Lament for Owen Roe Best Opposite.

Down in Florida Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend notched up a Group 2 & 4.He was also BOB at Seminole Dog Fanciers and Greater Ocala where he took another Group 4. Kilkenny’s Irish American at Castlerock was Best Bitch at Seminole and also BOB at the first show of the back to back. A cluster in Philadelphia began at Penn Treaty KC with success for Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea with Tipperary American Girl Best Bitch. At Greater Philadelphia Dog Fanciers Association American Girl took BOB (with OHG3) over William O’Shea. Kennel Club of Philadelphia was once again a triumph for William O’Shea with American Girl BOS and this was repeated at kennel Club of Philadelphia.

Brandon Florida Kennel Club was 2 Best of Breeds for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend with Kilkenny Irish American Classic at Castlerock & Finnabair DD Shut Up & Kiss Me Best Opposites. 7 month old Abberann Lament for Owen Roe was a rising star in Valparaiso where he took Best of Breed(over Champions) and Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta took a Best of Breed & Group 3. Canada saw Gleann Holy Hannah notch up a Group 2 AND a Group 3 at Island Dog Club

Let’s hear it for Glen of Imaal Terriers

Glen of Imaal Terriers are on a roll at the moment. In the end it was nine group placements for the breed last weekend and it’s continuing on.

First call out must go to Abberann Phelan who is spreading the “Glen Gospel” in Canada with a Group 3, group 2, two Group 1s and a Reserve Best In Show. In the States Kilkenny’s Across The Universe at Setanta was having a ball as well with a Group 3 at Mattoon Kennel Club and a Group 2 at Sandemac KC. Abberann Torcan was Best Opposite both days. Across The Universe was also BOB at Illinois Capitol Kennel Club with Abberann The Lion King Best Dog. Not a bad weekend at all for the US arm of Abberann! Over in Washington State Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right was repeating her Montgomery success with a Group 1 & 2

Glen folk continually celebrate the power of the Veterans and at Birmingham Gundog & Terrier 11 year old Johnny Be Good at Romainville was Best of Breed. Best Bitch and Best Puppy was Jeonty Jyn a New Hope. Discover Dogs was on in London and the Glen booth was busy, busy, busy for both days. Appreciation to the dogs and people who flew the flag there and they were Sean Percy and Lesley with Leia, Geraldine & Alan Statham Cook with Misty, Lynne, Gordon & Katey Fraser with Dylan, Sarah Henson with TinTin and Gabriel (who was an honorary Glen for the day), the Locke family with Fina and Nicki Montford who was main supporter and assistant.

The brains side of the breed is also doing well with Ginny earning her AKC Scent Work Exterior Novice title in Maine on Saturday and something totally new to report. Keadeen’s Darling Violet earning her CGCA. This is an AKC Community Canine test, does the breed have anymore?

Congratulations everybody.

Catching up, Group Placings and National Terrier

Kate Flack sends Glen of Imaal Terrier news:- Late report from the large Kentuckiana 4- day cluster in Louisville, Kentucky, March 16 – 19. HG: A big well run show … and though I had hoped for some spring weather, Louisville greeted us with temps in the low 40s – mid 50s … not quite spring weather. Over the 4 days, the BOB awards were split evenly between GCH Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta and GCH Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas. Grand champion points were earned each Keadeen’s Second Start to the Right and GCH Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore, as each had Select three times and once for OS. Finally, a cheer for puppy bitch Abberann Be Brave, who showed with spirit, taking Best of Winners on Saturday and collecting her first point. CONGRATULATIONS to all.

In the UK it was National Terrier and two very pleased exhibitors. Golden Spurs took his first CC and Best of Breed with Wickholm Breaking Dawn taking her second CC. The two Reserves (respectively) were awarded to Romainville Fast’n’Furious at Wickholm & Jeonty Minnie MeMe. Best Puppy was Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage. Over in Ireland it was Portadown and Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore took the BOB award home over Best Dog Abberann Conan. In Finland at Jamikeskus Pearytail Cruella de Gleann (great name) took Best of Breed.

More US news and three Group placings of 1, 2 & 4 for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend at an Oklahoma Cluster. Western Pennsylvania Kennel Association saw Tipperary American Girl take Best of Breed and add to her Owner Handler Group placements with an OHG4 on one day & OHG3 the next. The two Opposites were  her son Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc and half brother Tipperary Columbo.

Kelli & Griffin were also out and about “A lovely clean run for Griffin in standard today so that makes for a new title, NAP! This Q and run are dedicated in memory of Griffin’s sire: GCH Rainbow Springs Wicklows Warrior of Ber-D-Mar; run free at the bridge Big Finn. 😘 XOXO” Finn & Kelli’s run are on YouTube

Brilliant weekend everybody.

Busy or what!

Things got a bit behind hand reporting on Glen of Imaal Terrier wins but now the highs of Crufts have already started to recede into memory (except for the Sage family of course) it’s time to catch up.

As it’s just been St Patrick’s Day we’ll start there with a BOB for Abberann Reach for the Stars Ryanne and Best Opposite for Abberann Conan but at Celtic Winners the day after Conan showed the breed’s Veteran Power by taking BOB over Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore. Jumping over to mainland Europe and it was Best of Breed for Highlander’s Dream Casper in Lithuania whilst Gleann Dear Dandelion was BOS. Riga International was a win for Gleann Dear Dandelion with Best Dog going to Rosears Master of the House. Lehre in Germany saw McJake’s Angels Son Djuke take Best Opposite to My Dear Fellow Brunhilde de Coco Best of Breed.

Jeff Dairiki sends news: Ciarán, (GCHB Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette CA RATCH) has had a nice run of shows.  After returning from his AOM at Westminster, he took BOB at all four days of the Albany, Oregon cluster at the end of February, finishing his bronze grand championship.  (He also was awarded an OHG1 on the first day of that cluster.)  Last weekend, he continued his streak by taking BOB (and OHG2) both days at the Seattle KC shows.

A couple of back to back shows at Monticello (New York) Kennel Club had Abberann Derbla Group place at both events with a 4 and a 2. Down in Florida Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock was Gp4 at Palm Beach County whilst in Kentucky Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta was BOB at Mid-Kentucky KC with Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore BOS. Keadeen Sir Emmet Mingus Glas was BOBOH and took OHG3. At Louisville KC Emmet again repeated his OHG3 but was also BOB with Across The Universe taking Best Opposite.

Kate Flack writes:-Ended the Louisville Ky show today, and I could not be prouder of Emmet – GCH CH Keadeen’s Sir Emmet …. Flew in to this 3200+ dog show and four days later we leave with 2 Best of Breed awards, & 3 Best in Breed Owner Handled (OH). On top of that we won 3 group placements In the large and competitive OH terrier group each of the 3 days it was offered. Watching and participating in the regular terrier groups with nationally known handlers and top ranked dogs was a privilege. Wonderful to see the top dogs in their breeds all competing for 4 spots and a shot at Best in Show

Great going everybody!!!

…and we’re back!

Let’s be honest here the intention wasn’t to be back until next Monday but boy oh boy you have kept us in your email box! It’s flattering to know that Glen of Imaal Terrier people think to include the blog in their thoughts. This year there have even been emails saying they’ll catch us up with the news when we “get back” so (if you haven’t forgotten what you wanted to tell us) we’re open for business again.

The UK may have been basically in hibernation show wise but not Finland and the USA. They have been out with great enthusiasm and they love to share-as we love to hear about-and there have been multiple referrals from the same show in some cases which does lead to a bit of eye crossing some times. If you are listed with the wrong place or result do let us know.

Starting in mid January in Wisconsin with two Group 4 placements for Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta. Staying in that part of the world next for a tremendous blast from the past….and what a blast. Abberann Conan (yes, Homer) is currently in the States showing to the US dog show fraternity that, in Glens at least, the breed gets better as it gets older. He took Terrier Veteran Group 1 at the first day of a cluster in Michigan. His granddaughter Across The Universe was BOB on all three days, picking up another couple of Group placements and son Torcan was BOBOH Gp4. That isn’t a brain fade as Theresa had him, not Carlos. Also Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow picked up OHG3 as well. Great publicity for Glens.

Over on the West Coast it was the Rose City Classic in Oregon with a new Champion crowned. Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette took BOB for three days with Keadean’s Second Star to the Right BOS to him. She did the same on Friday but this time it was Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas taking Best of Breed and on Sunday she bowed the paw to Kilkenny’s Love and Happiness and that made him into an AKC Champion. The breed was also out in Florida and Pennsylvania with Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock BOB at Greater Gainsville Dog Fanciers and at Erie Tipperary Cora Countess of Grantham was BOB & OHG4. Finishing the American section with two, yes two, Best In Shows down in New Mexico for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend. What a result on the run in to Westminster!!!

The Finns put us all to shame with their enthusiasm so here goes:-At Kajaani International Show Best of Breed was Highlanders Dream Casper. He did the same again at the Tallinn Winter Cup with Pearytail Black Cat Best Bitch and he was Best Opposite to Pearytail Candy McCoy at Turku International. Tallinn Terrier Speciality saw Rosears Kate The Duchess get the nod. Lahti Puppy Show saw Rosears Master of the House given the nod with Rosears Maid Marion Best Opposite.

Manchester Championship Show saw a Best of Breed for Golden Spur and he did the same at West Midlands Terrier.

So very well done to everybody!!

Slight indulgence by us. The photo of Across The Universe is not the one sent by the owner, it was sent by somebody else so hope they don’t mind. Is it not the best picture ever of a Glen’s attitude? You may wave a finger at me in the nicest way but I’m taking no notice….okay I may be out the corner of my eye. There had to be two of Homer to show how well he is looking.
