Another week gone

Let’s begin this week in California as it’s a while since there have been a number of Glen of Imaal Terriers showing in that State. Yosemite KC had a back to back with Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right Best of Breed both days. Keadenn’s Happy Go Lucky and Keadeen’s Kind of Blue were the two Best Opposites. Contra Costa County KC (another great name) was another double triumph again for Second Star with Happy Go Lucky once again Best Opposite. Moving east to McKinley KC Daulton’s Captain Jack of Roseglen took the top Glen award there. Greenwich Kennel Club had Ber-D-Mar Sweet William taking BOB. Abberann Phelan was THE man of the weekend, at b2b shows at Wheaton KC he was Group 1 both days and Reserve Best In Show on the second!

The Scandinavian enthusiasts put us all to shame with their enthusiasm week after week. Rosears Made To Measure was Best of Breed at Forssa with Marfidal Santa Baby Best Bitch. In Palanga (Lithuania) Rosears Kate the Duchess was BOB and became a new Lithuanian and Baltic Champion. The Latvian Winners saw Gleann Indico Indy take the “big rosette” with Gleann Una Noonan Best Opposite. Miijoonakoira was another Best of Breed trophy for Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard with Astorren Best Bitch. In Germany, to celebrate 40 years of the SCWT there a special show was held for the Terriers of Ireland. BOB was Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice with Best Bitch Heart of Green Island Abbigail

Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae was out in Varieties and at Dundee was Best Not Separately Classified.

In the “Brains Department” Laura Trainor reports ” Liam, Niamh and Kylee found the Pi-rats at the Central Bark Barn Hunt trial. Niamh earned 3 Master Qs.” What a great photo!

Congratulations all

Quite a weekend!

Glen of Imaal Terriers were certainly been getting the breed name known last weekend. In Finland at the Royal Canin Puppy Show the Gleann team took BIS3 breeder (all breeds)!! Glen breed judging saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard take BOB withBest Bitch. The day before at Lahti International Flatbone’s sire Gleann Cotton Cody had taken BOB with Gleann Elite Ellie Best Opposite. In Estonia at Narva International Rosears Kate The Duchess was BOB and became a new Estonian Champion. In Canada Gleann Holy Hannah took Best Baby Puppy in Group both days of the weekend.

Laura Trainor writes news of Niamh “Niamh earned her PAX 2 Agility title on Friday at the Onondaga Kennel Association Agility trial. To earn this title she had to qualify in both the Standard and Jumpers courses on the same day 40 times. She is a super Agility Glen!”

Kelli Whitfield and Griffin were also having a great weekend “Griffin had a great time with two days of agility. Griffin qualified in 6 runs with 3 first places and 3 second places plus a new title. My little superstar is on fire!”

Brains and Beauty-the breed had it all last weekend. Congratulation to everybody

…and we’re back!

Let’s be honest here the intention wasn’t to be back until next Monday but boy oh boy you have kept us in your email box! It’s flattering to know that Glen of Imaal Terrier people think to include the blog in their thoughts. This year there have even been emails saying they’ll catch us up with the news when we “get back” so (if you haven’t forgotten what you wanted to tell us) we’re open for business again.

The UK may have been basically in hibernation show wise but not Finland and the USA. They have been out with great enthusiasm and they love to share-as we love to hear about-and there have been multiple referrals from the same show in some cases which does lead to a bit of eye crossing some times. If you are listed with the wrong place or result do let us know.

Starting in mid January in Wisconsin with two Group 4 placements for Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta. Staying in that part of the world next for a tremendous blast from the past….and what a blast. Abberann Conan (yes, Homer) is currently in the States showing to the US dog show fraternity that, in Glens at least, the breed gets better as it gets older. He took Terrier Veteran Group 1 at the first day of a cluster in Michigan. His granddaughter Across The Universe was BOB on all three days, picking up another couple of Group placements and son Torcan was BOBOH Gp4. That isn’t a brain fade as Theresa had him, not Carlos. Also Daulton’s Caoimhe of Pine Meadow picked up OHG3 as well. Great publicity for Glens.

Over on the West Coast it was the Rose City Classic in Oregon with a new Champion crowned. Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette took BOB for three days with Keadean’s Second Star to the Right BOS to him. She did the same on Friday but this time it was Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas taking Best of Breed and on Sunday she bowed the paw to Kilkenny’s Love and Happiness and that made him into an AKC Champion. The breed was also out in Florida and Pennsylvania with Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock BOB at Greater Gainsville Dog Fanciers and at Erie Tipperary Cora Countess of Grantham was BOB & OHG4. Finishing the American section with two, yes two, Best In Shows down in New Mexico for Finnabair Double D Friend of a Friend. What a result on the run in to Westminster!!!

The Finns put us all to shame with their enthusiasm so here goes:-At Kajaani International Show Best of Breed was Highlanders Dream Casper. He did the same again at the Tallinn Winter Cup with Pearytail Black Cat Best Bitch and he was Best Opposite to Pearytail Candy McCoy at Turku International. Tallinn Terrier Speciality saw Rosears Kate The Duchess get the nod. Lahti Puppy Show saw Rosears Master of the House given the nod with Rosears Maid Marion Best Opposite.

Manchester Championship Show saw a Best of Breed for Golden Spur and he did the same at West Midlands Terrier.

So very well done to everybody!!

Slight indulgence by us. The photo of Across The Universe is not the one sent by the owner, it was sent by somebody else so hope they don’t mind. Is it not the best picture ever of a Glen’s attitude? You may wave a finger at me in the nicest way but I’m taking no notice….okay I may be out the corner of my eye. There had to be two of Homer to show how well he is looking.

Fabulous entry in Finland

Some shows attract Glen of Imaal Terriers and the Terrier Specialty in Finland saw over 30 competing. Best of Breed went to Gleann Ungus MacGuire with Pearytail Artless Tess Best Opposite. Riihimaki Int. Show the same weekend saw Gleann Una Noonan take BOB with Gleann Eager Edgar Best Dog. At Hammaslahti Group Show Rosears Lil Davy was Best of Breed. Rosears kate the Duchess was in Russia and was awarded 2x BOB.

A big weekend of Glen social get-togethers. The Glen Association in the UK and Glen folk in the Netherlands held a couple of successful events. Admittedly the “weather God” wasn’t too accommodating to begin with in Grantham but a great time was had by all. The Finnish after show was as convivial as ever with even more people to enjoy!

Great weekend!
