Busy few days

The show season seems to be certainly starting for Glen of Imaal Terriers. In Finland Rosears Fuzzbuster was Best of Breed at Kajaani whilst in Luxemburg Bregorrey Wannabe Victory By Jeonty took the top award. CH Tipperary American Girl JE took two back to back Best of Breeds at Monroeville and two Group 2s were recorded by GCH Finnabair Ardmore Ned in Florida (why doesn’t the UK have such fabulous names as Greater Orange Park Dog Club?). At the Utrecht Show(Holland) Madra Athos Annowre Aobh an Solais was Best of Breed

It’s the terrier high spot of the year when National Terrier takes place and BOB there was Ch Donvaleset Bier with Ir Ch Abberann Karl taking the dog ticket. The two reserves were, respectively, Romainville Jean Genie and Bregorrey Wannabe Victory By Jeonty. Best Puppy went to Romainville Jazzman.

Well done everybody

Catching up

We appreciate things sent last week and they are safely in the file for use! First though thanks to Louise Lopez for her work compiling this:-

For those not following along on Facebook it has been a very nice ‘sporting’ week-end for our Glen of Imaal Terriers:

Monique and Les Anthony’s’ Oliver passed his Odor Recogntion Test for Scentwork/Nosework. This is the preliminary qualifying step for dogs who want to eventually earn a nosework title. Dogs start out initially by searching for smelly food hidden in boxes and eventually graduate to finding an item scented with birch. To pass, Oliver had to (in just a few seconds) identify correctly a box which contained birch scent (one out of many boxes). Monique had to have the confidence in him to know that he’d correctly identified it and report it. Oliver managed in 11 seconds flat–well done! I believe he’s the first glen to be ORT certified.

Meanwhile, in Florida, Mary McDaniel and Fiona had a perfect run in Novice Agility (this is the standard course with the dog walk/A-frame, etc.) This was Fiona’s 3rd qualifying run and she’s earned her NAP (novice agility preferred) title. Qualifying is not that easy and to do it w/a perfect score–wow!  

Finland (as usual) had shows over the weekends with two near stars rising. The 9 month old sisters Rosears Fuzzbuster & Rosears Flying Colours both took a CAC each at different shows. Fuzzbuster got hers with a Best of Breed and Flying Colours with a Best Opposite

Nice going people-especially the US Glens witth their “other” disciplines!
