Blimey, we’ve been busy

Many parts of the world have been recording very high temperatures but Glen of Imaal Terrier folk obviously thrive on the heat.

For a change let’s start the round up in Canada. Not a big dog showing country but boy do they like Glens with Gleann Holy Hannah taking 2 x Group 1, 2x Group 2 and 2x Reserve Best In Show and Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend taking the full set in Groups, one, two, three and four all on the same weekend!

In Finland at the Nastola Group Show Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat was Best of Breed, at the Nordic Pearytail Bonnie B Goode was BOB with Rosears Impromptu Best Dog and at Pori International Gleann Ungus MacGuire was BOB with Balloo Girl Best Opposite. Mikkeli International saw Gleann Indico Indy getting the nod for Best of Breed

In Ireland Poachersmoon Sissy McGinty was Best of Breed and at the EFG Fun Day (another event that was hot, hot, hot) a Dachshund was Best In Show and the Glen (who was on holiday from Germany) was Reserve Best In Show. By the weekend of Leeds Championship Show the weather had become wet, wet, wet but that didn’t stop Golden Spurs (Best Dog) and kennel mate Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage taking Best of Breed. The two Reserves to Boudivella Osca and Jeonty Dreams A Dream at Karensbrae.

The American branch of the family has been VERY active. Laura Trainor sends the following information:- 7/12 BOB OHG2, G2 GCH DAULTON’S CAOIMHE OF PINE MEADOW CA. Owner: Jody Daulton & PJ Estes & Ann Marie Pember    BOS CH DAULTON’S CIARAN OF PINE MEADOW Owner: JB & Nina Lawton & PJ Estes & Jody Daulton.

7/13 BOB OHG1 GCH DAULTON’S CAOIMHE OF PINE MEADOW CA. Owner: Jody Daulton & PJ Estes & Ann Marie Pember    BOS CH DAULTON’S CIARAN OF PINE MEADOW Owner: JB & Nina Lawton & PJ Estes & Jody Daulton

7/14 BOB, OHG2, G4  GCH DAULTON’S CAOIMHE OF PINE MEADOW CA. Owner: Jody Daulton & PJ Estes & Ann Marie Pember    BOS TIPPERARY BALLYFINBOY LIAM OF CNOC Owner: Laura Gilbert Trainor & Jo Lynn

At Grand River Kennel Club Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy tonight was Best of Breed (and G4) with Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc again Best Opposite that was the icing on his Best of Winners at Ashtabula KC on the 12th July as that was the final points for his American Championship. Caoimhe is really on song at the moment as BOB was also taken (twice) at Dan Emmett KC along with an OHG4 as well as two Best of Breeds at Western Reserve KC where a G4 and an OHG3 were collected as well. The two Best Opposites were Daulton’s Gedunk Malone from Emerald Isle and Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen. Marion (Ohio) KC also fell to her with Ciaran Best Dog again

Continuing in the States a new star arose at Terrier Association Of Oregon when Keadeen’s Happy Chance-at just under a year old-was nodded to for Best of Breed and then he took OHG1 and Group 4. Best Botch was Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right. The back to back shows at Portland Kennel Club saw Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right triumph at both with Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas and Keadeen’s Happy Go Lucky the Best Opposites. Another young star has also emerged further down the country at Woodstock Dog Club when 7 months old Kilkenny’s Stopping By Woods was Best Opposite and PG3 to his mother Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney. This was again repeated at Green Mountain whilst at Green Mountain second show Rooney took the honours again with Ballyhae’s Winter Sunshine taking Best Opposite.

Way to go people!!

 

 

July already

Where’s the year going? Spme happy Glen of Imaal Terrier people at the moment. At Deise Show Best of Breed was Poachersmoon Sissy McGinty so (subject to IKC) after waiting 6 years she is now an Irish Champion. Windsor was hot, hot, hot but BOB Golden Spurs and Best Bitch Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage didn’t mind the weather. Helga had received her official notification from the Kennel Club that day that she was a Champion so was obviously inspired. Tipperary That Girl was Best of Breed (Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore Best Opposite) at both Bushy Run KC shows, plus OHG4, OHG2 and Terrier Group 3, so-again subject to AKC- becomes an AKC Grand Champion.

In Sweden Gleann Ho Ho Hogan was Best of Breed and became a Swedish Champion and at Karjaa National Dog Show Rosears Master of the House was Best of Breed with Marfidal Santa Baby Best Bitch.

German brains this week with My Dear Fellow Batida competing in rally obedience and getting 99 points out of a 100 so obtaining 1st place!

Great going everybody

August may be holiday season….

….but some Glen of Imaal Terrier people “holiday” at dog shows.

Three back to back shows at Kuopio (Finland) saw 2 Best of Breeds for Glean Damn Daisy and one for Pearytail Bonnie B Good. Rosears Humpty Dumpty and Marfidal Pleasant Surprise taking the Best Opposites. Another 3 B2Bs in Canfield (Ohio) had Tipperary Cora Countess of Grantham doing the double BOBs with Daulton’s Princess C Hatteras taking number 3. A nice weekend for Abberann Torcan with a Group 2 & 3 at Marshall, Michigan.

Sue Sutton, it doesn’t matter it was “only a little show” when Poachersmoon Sissy McGinty is Best Terrier, Best Irish Native Breed at Reserve Best In Show at Castlerea. The Norwegian Terrier Club runs Junior Handling so applause to Siri & Tilla for winning.

Okay, “Gatsby” got a Group 4 and “Picabo” Best Opposite but it would be nice to have names and places….hint, hint!

Whether your full name or call name is all we’v got you’ve done us proud-congratulations all.

Busy, busy, busy!

Glen of Imaal Terrier people were certainly out and about over the last weekend. A different result at Scottish Kennel Club with both the Dog CC and Reserve CC going to puppies rather than fully mature dogs-that is a critique is being awaited with interest. Congratulations to Abberann Phelan (Dog CC & BOB), Romainville Jazzman(Res Dog CC), Romainville Uptown Girl (Bitch CC) and Ch Abberann Ennya (Reserve Bitch CC). In Ireland BOB at Hibernian was Poachersmoon Sissy McGinty whilst in Finland Glenrosedale Ardal Ridire Ain Ri was BOB at Joensuu and Rosears High-Five was BOB, and became a new Champion- at Rauma.

In the USA two Group placements were recorded over the weekend: GCH Daulton’s Emerald Green was BOB and Group 3 in Terrier Owner Handled at Blennerhassett and Glentyrs Lady Isabelle at Castlerock was Group 4 at Greater Kingsport. In Holland the Dutch Glen Association had a very successful Puppy, Junior, Offspring & Veterans Day and at Ustka (Poland) Firhir Glen Limited Edition took BOB.

Firhir Glen Limited Edition

Rosears High Five

Well done to everybody!!!

So as it’s Monday….

…what have Glen of Imaal Terriers been doing?

Belatedly from last weekend the two Irish International Shows. On Saturday Green Star Dog was Abberran Karl with Green Star Bitch and Best of Breed to PoachersMoon Sissy McGinty. Sunday was a repeat of the Dog GS but BOB (and Bitch GS) was Abberan Enya. This weekend had Laiquendi’s Jillian Griffith James Best of Breed at Dortmund and so becoming a European Champion. At South Wales Kennel Association Best of Breed was awarded to Bregorrey Madam Defiance with Romainville Typhoon taking the Dog Challenge Certificate and Best Puppy Romainville Rock On Ruby.

Monique Anthony writes news of the fabulous (nearly 14 years old) Oliver:- Oliver had fun today at a Barn Hunt trial in Portland, CT. He was in the Senior class and had 3½ minutes to locate 4 tubes containing live rats hiddenin hay bales. With bales piled 3 levels high, 3 dirty litter tubes (without rats) to trick up the dogs, and many hiding locations, it was a very challenging course. He had already qualified twice in this class at trials a month ago. He ran round finding rat after rat after rat and qualified for the 3rd time earning his Senior Barn Hunt Title. There is a possibility he is only the 2nd dog in the country to earn the RATS title but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.

Congratulations to everybody!
