Glen of Imaal Terriers (and their people) do us all so proud. Going Native to begin with for this week’s round up with “The Circuit” in Ireland. The final three shows were Killarney, Tralee & Limerick. Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage was BOB at Killarney and Limerick and Best Bitch at Tralee where Abberann Cosmic Cowboy was Best of Breed. He was Best Opposite at Limerick. No classes for Glens at Scottish Kennel Club so Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae was entered into the Not Separately Classifieds and bought honour to the breed with being awarded Best Bitch.
In Finland the Riihimaki Nordic Show saw Meomodo Boho’s Trick or Treat take Best of Breed. At Vantaa Terrier Specialty Show Gleann Una Noonan was Best of Breed and Best Veteran with Gleann Cotton Cody Best Dog. At Ristiina BOB was Marfidal Devil’s Rock with Marfidal Up To Your Ears Best Opposite.
In America Tipperary Ballyfinboy Liam of Cnoc axed the BOBs at Tioga County & Susque-Nango KC. Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic was in Georgia with Best of Breed at Griffin KC and Sawnee Mountain KC but Best Opposite at Conyers KC and Lawrenceville KC where Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea was Best of Breed. Hearing news of two new Champions. Subject to AKC confirmation Daulton’s Eli from Emerald Isle and Tipperary Sweet Rosie O’Grady (who took an OHG4 on the day) are now Champions.
Our “brains department” has also been performing. Monique reports that “Ginny performed various exercises around sheep, ducks, and farm equipment the last 2 weekends to be evaluated on how she would behave when exposed to livestock and the sights/sounds/scents of a farm environment. She passed 2 of these tests and is now AKC Farm Dog Certified.” Quinn-Kilkenny’s Love and Happiness-has completed the requirements for the GITCA Master Versatility lifetime award as he can now put CAA CGCA CZ8S RATCHX4 SE TKN after his name.
