SKC this weekend

Scottish Kennel Club Show is this weekend with an incredible entry of 21 Glen of Imaal Terriers for SKC and judge Paul Eardley, the last time anything like that number was seen was back in the mid 90s under breed judge Ursula Collins. It’s a very, very long session for most of the exhibitors(if intending to make a day trip of it) but at least being 3rd in the ring, with 70 dogs before Glens, means not quite such an early start in the morning…or the night before!

Southern Counties (postal) closes today & so does SKC!

Postal entries for Southern Counties closes today, but you have until 21st April for online. Terrier Day is Saturday 30 May and judge of Glen of Imaal Terriers is Phil Greenway.

Scottish Kennel Club extended their closing until today (midday). Terrier Day is Saturday 16th May so if you are regretting not entering or find you know can……

Busy, busy, busy!

Glen of Imaal Terrier people were certainly out and about over the last weekend. A different result at Scottish Kennel Club with both the Dog CC and Reserve CC going to puppies rather than fully mature dogs-that is a critique is being awaited with interest. Congratulations to Abberann Phelan (Dog CC & BOB), Romainville Jazzman(Res Dog CC), Romainville Uptown Girl (Bitch CC) and Ch Abberann Ennya (Reserve Bitch CC). In Ireland BOB at Hibernian was Poachersmoon Sissy McGinty whilst in Finland Glenrosedale Ardal Ridire Ain Ri was BOB at Joensuu and Rosears High-Five was BOB, and became a new Champion- at Rauma.

In the USA two Group placements were recorded over the weekend: GCH Daulton’s Emerald Green was BOB and Group 3 in Terrier Owner Handled at Blennerhassett and Glentyrs Lady Isabelle at Castlerock was Group 4 at Greater Kingsport. In Holland the Dutch Glen Association had a very successful Puppy, Junior, Offspring & Veterans Day and at Ustka (Poland) Firhir Glen Limited Edition took BOB.

Well done to everybody!!!

and the winners are….

At the World Show in Hungary Best of Breed Glen of Imaal Terrier was Gleann Aine of Antrim whilst from America Laura Trainor shares the news of a good agility weekend. “Kylee finished her Open Jumpers Pref title.  We thought we had finished it earlier but figured out that our 3 Q’s were all under the same judge.  With her 4th Q we fulfill the more than one judge requirement.  She also earned a Q in Excellent Std Pref.  Niamh finished her Open FAST title.” Also on the World Show circuit the Interra and Budapest Shows saw Carrighglen Big Boy take Best of Breed, following on from the 7 titles obtained on the Adriatic Winners cluster the previous week.

In the UK it was the road to Scotland and Scottish Kennel Club. Glens welcomed a new Champion with Jeonty Maybee Daysee getting her third CC and Bregorrey Wannabe Victory by Jeonty started on the trail with his first CC and Best of Breed. Best Puppy was Jeonty MeMe Fern and for the first time in a long while there were actually five Glen puppies at the show. Well done all!!
