Oh we were busy!!!

Bank Holiday weekend so extra time for Glen of Imaal Terrier people to go showing and, boy, we sure did! There are a lot of results with a bunch from Scandinavia/Lithuania. If eyes crossed when writing them up just let me know.

Leading in with Bath Championship Show and applause for Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage who was BOB but more importantly it was her 3rd CC. Dog CC went to Romainville Becks Blue for Zippor with Romainville Whistle Dixie and Boudivella Osca taking the respective Reserves. Jeonty Glynis Making Magic For Zippor was Best Puppy & Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm Best Veteran.

The Helsinki Puppy Show saw Finnabair Broc Rua Arda at Gleann be awarded BOB with Meomodo Careless Cuinn Best Opposite. Joensuu International was atriumph for Finnabair North American Nebulon with Rosears Miss Miimos Best Bitch. The places were reversed at Joensuu All Breed Show the next day. Moleti International Dog Show saw Rosears Master of the House Best of Breed and Astoreen Best Opposite. Rauma Dog Show went to Gleann Indico Indy and BOS was Taramont Niamh Tirnan’Og. At the Lithuanian Terrier Club Show Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard was Best with Astoreen Best Bitch. Salo Group Show had Hammersmolles Rocket Saturn getting the nod for the big ribbon.

Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend just has to lead the American round up with Groups 1 & 3 at back to back Bayou Kennel Club shows & then a Gp1 at Southern Arkansas KC. The Owner Handler Group was also seeing “Glendom” with a Group 1 for Tipperary That Girl at Trumbull County KC, OHG3 at Altoona Area Kennel Association and a repeat OHG3 at Newcastle KC. Holland Michigan Kennel Club saw another Glen Group placing for Abberann Phelan (Gp3) with Kilkenny’s Across The Universe at Setanta taking Best Opposite, the placings were reversed at Grand Rapids Kennel Club. Phelan was again BOB at Kalamazoo KC with Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore Best Opposite, Best owner Handler and OHG4. Hendersonville Kennel Club back to back shows had Kilkenny’s Middleton Irish Spirit taking BOB at both with another BOB at Spartanburg KC with Kilkenny’s Quandarry at Parrsons BOS.

The UK is really the only country that still has a lot of Open Shows and that (to many US & FCI) strange thing known as Varieties. To show a Glen of Imaal Terrier in those classes is to have conviction. Jeonty Dreams A Dream at Karensbrae was at Banff, Moray & Nairn Canine Club and bought home BAVNSC Terrier and G2, she also won Special Terrier Puppy, 1st in junior stakes, 4th in members stakes and 4th in The Mary McCance stakes.

Great going everybody!!

Rolling up to Christmas……

….with the Eukanuba/AKC National Championships in Florida. What a great idea to have a cluster of shows somewhere sunny as December takes a grip. No wonder there was a nice Glen of Imaal Terrier entry. The results were very, very similar with Killkenny Over The Universe to Setanta and Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend making clean sweeps of the top awards (Over The Universe with BOB, Friend of A Friend Best Opposite) with the Selects slightly different. The same results held at the final show-The AKC National Championships with Keadean’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas and Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right taking Select with Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam Of Cnoc Best of Winners. The cluster also saw the final of the National Owner Handler Series and Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas cemented his top spot for Glens when he got the nod for BOB. The first Puppy Stakes to be run with the event occurred and the Glen Best Puppy was Finnabair DD Shut Up & Kiss Me.

The Swedish Winners was a Best of Breed for Pearytail Bonnie B Goode with Rosears Master of The House being awarded Best Dog.

Kelli and Griff were at their last Trial of the year at the Clever Dog Academy NADAC agility trial. Five quailifying runs in two days. What an end to a quite sensational year!!

Great going everybody

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.
