Stefanie Blänkner writes: Glen Meeting “Fire & Ice” and Friends in Witten(Germany) at Whitsun 2015. More than 50 Glens and their families took part in our traditional glenmeeting in Witten. It lasted over 2 days and started with a nice walk through the beautiful “Muttental” area. At an old ruin we had a stop to make a big Picture of all Glens. During the walk we passed the river “Ruhr”, where all Dogs used the occasion to drink water or take a short bath. In the afternoon we had the first top point of the day: the Glen Parade! That means that all present Kennels presented their dogs. It was very interesting to see the reationships! After that all Glens had a lot of fun with the dog Rallye.The Rallye is an agility competion just for fun. The next day we started with a grooming presentation to show specially the new puppy owners how to groom and take care of the coat of their Glens. The last competion of our meeting was then the dogracing. All Glens gave their best and a lot of People looked on the racing. All People enjoyed the Weekend with the attractions and the talks about our lovely Glens very much! It was wonderful and we thank all people for coming and our friends fom our Club in Witten, who helped us to organize this event.

Out and about over the weekend

Nice to get Glen of Imaal Terrier wins from a “new” place. In Tennessee at the Oak Ridge Kennel Club GCH Kilkenny’s Sullivan of Castlerock was BOB and Group 4. A Group 4 was also taken at Framingham District Kennel Club by Ch Liberty’s Padraig who also took a BOB at Souhegan Kennel Club. In Estonia Rosears Halo was Best of Breed both days at Tartu International. In America more Glens are taking up Barnhunt with Dermot, Kylee and Niamh all earning qualifying scores in Instinct.
