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………

Welcome back!

Finnegan (Rainbow Springs Wicklow’s Warrior of Ber-D-Mar) starts off the 2013 season. The boy was being taken after his second Westminster Best of Breed when, rather than the traditional shot, he suddenly sat up. The photographer, and New York Times editor, were so taken with the Glen of Imaal Terrier sit that it was featured on the  back page of NY Times Sports section!

Quite a lot of news was sent in January, new working titles and a Best Veteran in Show being the most exciting, and we’re ready for lots more. As we often say the EFG blog exists for you so the new email of malsville@rbt-int.com is ready anything you think will be of interest to fellow Glen people.
