Back to back shows in the US & Dublin saw some busy Glen of Imaal Terrier owners. In America Columbia Terrier saw GCH Rainbow Springs Wicklow Warrior of Ber-D-Mar take BOB with GCH Emerald Isle Keely with Daulton Best Opposite. The wonderfully named Old Dominion Kennel Club had Wicklow Warrior bowing the paw to his kennel mate with Ch Ber-D-Mar My Dream of You Aoife taking the big rosette for BOB. At Baltimore County Wicklow Warrior was BOB and Aoife was BOS South Windsor KC Daulton’s Elric Moondance of Roscommon was BOB In Ireland Bainbridge had Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore get the BOB nod with Ch Abberann Phelan Best Dog. Portadown saw a reversal with Phelan taking Best of Breed and Sky Best Opposite. A puppy show in Finland had young Gleann Damn Daisy flying the flag for Glendom with Group 3.
