The breed knows our Veterans are good!

Glen of Imaal Terrier people know that we are a breed that gets better as we get older. Not for us the puppy champ and over the hill by 3 route. Glens are a breed that celebrate getting older and this weekend our senior flag flew tall and proud when Abberann Conan took Best of Breed and Group 4 in his twelfth year at Belfast Show. Best Bitch was his kennel mate Abberann Reach for the Stars Ryanne with Boudivella Osca and Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore taking the relevant Reserves with Romainville Rock on Lizzie Best Puppy.

At the Copenhagen Winners Best of Breed was awarded to MacCormac Setna Sithbacc and Pearytail Bonnie B Goode was Best Opposite Sex. Tallin International Show was a wave to the top spot for Gleann Dynamite Mike with Gleann Elite Ellie Best Bitch.

Keadeen’s Second Star to the Right was taking a short break in Montana and annexed two Best of Breeds and a Group 4 and at Butler County KC on day 1 Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore took BOB with Tipperary American Girl Best Bitch with American Girl getting BOB on the second day and OHG2.

A first reporting of an award; who knew that Australia has “Best Neuter” awards? Ch Taufield Queen of Tara was at three shows recently and was awarded Best Runner Up Neuter in all three Groups.

Monique sends the following for the “brains” department-

Ginny had a fun weekend of Scent Work trials! At Saturday’s USCSS (US Canine Scent Sports) event, she earned her titles in both Novice Interior and Novice Vehicle, completing her overall Novice Variable title!  She also qualified in an Intermediate Containers class.  Sunday was a PSD (Performance Scent Dogs) trial and she earned her Novice Exteriors title and a qualifying leg in Advanced Exteriors with 2 seconds to spare.

Congratulations to everybody and it has to be extra applause on behalf of us all for Conan at Belfast.

Stefanie Blänkner writes: Glen Meeting “Fire & Ice” and Friends in Witten(Germany) at Whitsun 2015. More than 50 Glens and their families took part in our traditional glenmeeting in Witten. It lasted over 2 days and started with a nice walk through the beautiful “Muttental” area. At an old ruin we had a stop to make a big Picture of all Glens. During the walk we passed the river “Ruhr”, where all Dogs used the occasion to drink water or take a short bath. In the afternoon we had the first top point of the day: the Glen Parade! That means that all present Kennels presented their dogs. It was very interesting to see the reationships! After that all Glens had a lot of fun with the dog Rallye.The Rallye is an agility competion just for fun. The next day we started with a grooming presentation to show specially the new puppy owners how to groom and take care of the coat of their Glens. The last competion of our meeting was then the dogracing. All Glens gave their best and a lot of People looked on the racing. All People enjoyed the Weekend with the attractions and the talks about our lovely Glens very much! It was wonderful and we thank all people for coming and our friends fom our Club in Witten, who helped us to organize this event.

What a weekend!!!!!

High summer and Glen of Imaal Terrier people were out and about with a vengeance!!!!

At a cluster in Ohio Ch Emerald Isle Sweet Molly Malone with Daulton took 3xBOB and 1xGroup 4. During the same cluster Paddington for Tipperary got his final points to add Champion to his name. In Mississippi GCH Finnabair Ardmore Ned took three Group placements including a Gp 1. Incredibly GCH Rainbow Springs Wicklow’s Warrior of Ber-De-Mar was also getting the nod to take the top spot in the Group in Virginia…is this the first time two Glens have taken that spot on the same day? At a cluster in Vermont GCH Daulton’s Emerald Green got Best of Breed twice and GCH Abberann Abaigael once.

At the Danish Terrier Club Show a new Champion was crowned in McCormac Setna Sithbac when he took Best of Breed. In the UK the Funday saw the blessing of the Sun God and people turned out to worship him via an excellent entry! Many congratulations to each and everyone and if there were any more shows that need sharing………
