Glen Of Imaal Terriers

I would like to thank the exhibitors for their entries.

P (1) 1 Hardy’s Amard High Flyer, wheaten, good type & well proportioned throughout, well made skull, good earset & carriage, good width & depth of muzzle, correct bite, well boned bowed front, good neck & shoulders, well sprung ribs, & muscled hindquarters, when settled moved out well covering the ground with ease, correct coat texture. Just needs time to settle. BP.

PG (3) 1 Hannington’s Romainville Uptown Girl, blue, lovely balanced skull, good earset, eyes well set, strong muzzle, correct bite & front, muscular neck & good shoulders, well ribbed, slight rise over loin, good tailset, well muscled quarters used to advantage on the move, well presented. BB. 2 Withers Pajantick Star Trooper, wheaten dog, strong balanced skull, good eye & strong muzzle, well boned & bowed front legs, muscular neck, well ribbed & strong loin, good tailset, well defined thighs, good coat texture. Just moving a tad close behind. RBD.

O (3) 1 Welch’s Ch/Int Ch Brockland Brayhead Lad, blue, on reading the catalogue I see I judged this dog many moons ago, I was delighted to judge him again as a mature dog, in fact now a veteran. So well balanced with a lovely outline both standing & on the move, well balanced head, good earset & carriage, well set eye, strong muzzle & correct bite, true front, good run-in & layback, slight rise over the loin, good tailset & powerful hindquarters which he used to full advantage on the move, in lovely bloom. BOB. 2 Cockayne’s Bregorrey Lady Belleisle, bl/br, feminine bitch, well made head, good earset, & muzzle & bite, correct front, muscular neck & good shoulder, well sprung ribs, good tailset & well made hindquarters, moved out well. Not in her best jacket & preferred the overall outline of 1. RBB. 3 Welch’s Romainville Brannigan at Brockland.
