“Rarest Breed”

I guess many will have seen the recent headlines in the newspapers & television: Glens are rarer than Giant Pandas and there are less than a thousand in the world! Remember Freddie Starr ate my Hamster as a headline in the Sun a few years ago? The recent Glen headlines are as truthful as that one was; in other words huge journalistic licence. There are more Glen of Imaal Terriers around in the world than there have ever been and that is certainly more than a thousand.
