Summer is hopefully here and some Glen of Imaal Terrier exhibitors are celebrating it by getting out and about on the road.
We’ll start in Europe at Sligo (Ireland) and Best of Breed there was Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore with Abberann Phelan Best Dog. In Germany the KfT Klubseigers at Beusheim were der Fellow Ashton de CoCo and Fire & Ice Liberty. In Finland Gleann Una Noonan was BOB and Gleann Cotton Candy Best Opposite at Orivesi whilst at Mantsala Cotton Candy was BOB & his sister Curvy Corvette BOS and both became Finnish Champions.
Over in America THE news is another Best In Show for Glen of Imaal Terriers and this time it was Abberann Torcan who bought honour to the breed at Belvidere and then got a Gp2 the next day. A cluster in Ohio (two Green River KC Shows and one Ashtabula KC) saw numerous Group placings. At Green River 1 Daulton’s Rory was BOB & OHGp4 with Tipperary Cora Countess of Grantham Best Bitch. Ashtabula had the honours reversed with Cora getting the nod and OHGp4 with Rory Best Opposite and Green River 2 finished off a rather good weekend for Cora with another BOB, OHGp3 and Terrier Group 4, Rory was Best Dog to her again. A cluster in Vermont-Two Woodstock Dog Club & two Green Mountain Dog Club had Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore taking 3 Best of Breeds and a Group 4 with Kilkenny Granite Glen Rooney (BOS at Woodstock 1) getting a OHGp4 as well and she then went on to BOB at Green Mountain 2.
Oh yes it was the EFG Funday as well and it went pretty well. Just to wet the appetite today is only a picture of the BIS and the RBIS who was also Best Puppy. There will be more tomorrow!
Well done to everybody for a great weekend-whether flying the flag in the exhibition ring or flying the flag to show how great Glen people are at the EFG day.
