Overnight a couple of emails have come in asking if the following can appear as a main blog post because people who receive notification direct to their mobiles and i-pod often don’t pick up comments.
The following was posted by Ali in reply to “It’s just as things panned out”
UK Glen of Imaal Terrier litters born in 2008, 2009, 2010 plus the first litter registered in 2011 total:
27 litters – 154 puppies – from 13 stud dogs owned by 10 UK owner/breeders and one Irish breeder.
One breeder, who owns 2 of the stud dogs, lives in Ireland. These 2 dogs have each sired one UK-registered litter over this time.
The other 11 stud dogs – 10 owners/kennels – are UK resident.
One stud dog has produced 48 puppies from 9 litters – that’s one third of the litters and just shy of one third of the total puppies.
One stud dog has sired 3 litters over this time (20 puppies); he has sired another 3 litters prior to 2008.
Four stud dogs have each sired 2 litters over this time. One of these dogs has sired another 2 litters prior to 2008; one dog has sired another 4 litters prior to 2008; one dog has sired another 5 litters prior to 2008
Five stud dogs have each sired 1 litter over this time. One of these dogs has sired another 2 litters prior to 2008 and one dog has sired another 1 litter prior to 2008.
Of the 13 stud dogs, almost two-thirds are Irish-bred:
5 were bred in the UK
6 are Irish imports
2 are resident in Ireland
Of the 13 stud dogs, just over half have GPRA-crd3 results published:
6 of the 11 UK-resident stud dogs
1 of the 2 dogs in Ireland
