Two new Champions

South Wales Kennel Association, judged by Peter Bakewell, saw Barney (Ch & Bel Ch Brockland Brayhead Lad) add to his CC & BOB total. Bitch CC went to Winni and as that was her third she can now be known as Champion Winnie Wanna Make Music By Jeonty. Whelped in April 2010 by Johnny Be Good at Romainville out of Jeonty Red Clover she is a first Champion for breeder Linda Samuel and the youngest KC Champion to date. The two Reserves were Jeonty Wanabee Bauer and Jeonty Maybe Daysee

Montgomery weekend was quite a weekend for Curry (GCH Coleraine’s Mandalay Royalty) as she took Best of Breed at all four shows, the first time there has  been a clean sweep in Glen of Imaal Terriers at that event. Fergus (GCH Cill Dara’s Fergus of Daulton) was Best Opposite at Hatboro 1 & 2 and Montgomery. Devon saw newly crowned Champion Finnabair Ardmore Ned (Ch Malsville Soldier Blue/GCH Finnabair Fiona The Wicked) take Best Opposite. A great weekend and many congratulations to all
