July already

Where’s the year going? Spme happy Glen of Imaal Terrier people at the moment. At Deise Show Best of Breed was Poachersmoon Sissy McGinty so (subject to IKC) after waiting 6 years she is now an Irish Champion. Windsor was hot, hot, hot but BOB Golden Spurs and Best Bitch Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage didn’t mind the weather. Helga had received her official notification from the Kennel Club that day that she was a Champion so was obviously inspired. Tipperary That Girl was Best of Breed (Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore Best Opposite) at both Bushy Run KC shows, plus OHG4, OHG2 and Terrier Group 3, so-again subject to AKC- becomes an AKC Grand Champion.

In Sweden Gleann Ho Ho Hogan was Best of Breed and became a Swedish Champion and at Karjaa National Dog Show Rosears Master of the House was Best of Breed with Marfidal Santa Baby Best Bitch.

German brains this week with My Dear Fellow Batida competing in rally obedience and getting 99 points out of a 100 so obtaining 1st place!

Great going everybody

Oh we were busy!!!

Bank Holiday weekend so extra time for Glen of Imaal Terrier people to go showing and, boy, we sure did! There are a lot of results with a bunch from Scandinavia/Lithuania. If eyes crossed when writing them up just let me know.

Leading in with Bath Championship Show and applause for Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage who was BOB but more importantly it was her 3rd CC. Dog CC went to Romainville Becks Blue for Zippor with Romainville Whistle Dixie and Boudivella Osca taking the respective Reserves. Jeonty Glynis Making Magic For Zippor was Best Puppy & Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm Best Veteran.

The Helsinki Puppy Show saw Finnabair Broc Rua Arda at Gleann be awarded BOB with Meomodo Careless Cuinn Best Opposite. Joensuu International was atriumph for Finnabair North American Nebulon with Rosears Miss Miimos Best Bitch. The places were reversed at Joensuu All Breed Show the next day. Moleti International Dog Show saw Rosears Master of the House Best of Breed and Astoreen Best Opposite. Rauma Dog Show went to Gleann Indico Indy and BOS was Taramont Niamh Tirnan’Og. At the Lithuanian Terrier Club Show Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard was Best with Astoreen Best Bitch. Salo Group Show had Hammersmolles Rocket Saturn getting the nod for the big ribbon.

Finnabair Double D Friend of A Friend just has to lead the American round up with Groups 1 & 3 at back to back Bayou Kennel Club shows & then a Gp1 at Southern Arkansas KC. The Owner Handler Group was also seeing “Glendom” with a Group 1 for Tipperary That Girl at Trumbull County KC, OHG3 at Altoona Area Kennel Association and a repeat OHG3 at Newcastle KC. Holland Michigan Kennel Club saw another Glen Group placing for Abberann Phelan (Gp3) with Kilkenny’s Across The Universe at Setanta taking Best Opposite, the placings were reversed at Grand Rapids Kennel Club. Phelan was again BOB at Kalamazoo KC with Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore Best Opposite, Best owner Handler and OHG4. Hendersonville Kennel Club back to back shows had Kilkenny’s Middleton Irish Spirit taking BOB at both with another BOB at Spartanburg KC with Kilkenny’s Quandarry at Parrsons BOS.

The UK is really the only country that still has a lot of Open Shows and that (to many US & FCI) strange thing known as Varieties. To show a Glen of Imaal Terrier in those classes is to have conviction. Jeonty Dreams A Dream at Karensbrae was at Banff, Moray & Nairn Canine Club and bought home BAVNSC Terrier and G2, she also won Special Terrier Puppy, 1st in junior stakes, 4th in members stakes and 4th in The Mary McCance stakes.

Great going everybody!!

Just wow!!!!

Last week it was easy to decide which Glen of Imaal Terrier should lead the “honour roll” round up and it’s easy this week as well. Please everybody, stand and applaud Billy Tow vom Au Deich who, at the Dutch Championship Show, took Best Dog for the 7th time and Best In Show for the 4th. Oh yes, he was Best Veteran as well. Best Bitch was his kennel mate McJake’s Aivy. Another Veteran Best of Breed was Abberann Conan who added yet another ribbon to his tally at The National. Best Bitch came from the other end of the scale when Jeonty Jyn A New Hope got the nod from Junior. It was worth the trip for the Abberanns as Cosmic Cowboy was Reserve Dog & Reach For The Stars Ryanne Reserve Best Bitch. Best Puppy Amhard Off The Cuff

Nice to hear from Australia where “Neuter” titles are on offer. Taufield Queen of Tara was Runner Up Neuter and Best Neuter at her last two shows which gives her 96 out the 100 points needed. The European Winners in Dortmund saw Jeonty Junior Fire & Ice increasing his reputation with Best of Breed, Fire & Ice Naomi was Best Bitch. In Ireland Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore represented Glens in the Group ring. Gleann is an affix that regularly appears here but this week the first mention is from Canada and Dartmouth Kennel Club with a Group 4 and two Group 2s for Gleann Holy Hannah. Crossing the sea to Scandinavia and Jarvenpaa with Gleann Indico Indy as BOB and Gleann Halloween Hattie Best Opposite. Oulu Nordic Show saw Gleann Flatbone Stiubhard with the big ribbon and Gleann Halloween Hattie as Best Bitch. Gleann Ho Ho Hogan was Best of Breed at Seinajoki Group Show.

In America at Ravenna Kennel Club Tipperary That Girl was Best of Breed with Daulton’s Sailor John of Roseglen Best Dog at one show with the results repeated at another but it was G4 for American Girl & BBEG2 for Sailor John. Klanath Dog Fanciers had a back to back set of shows and Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas had a OHG2 and OHG3 whilst Keadeen’s Something Like A Phenomenon was Best Opposite both days but she went one better with a fabulous Puppy Group 1. Finnabair Shorlyne Caatskill Comedy Tonight at Chambersburg KC Shows also registered the Glen in the Group ring with a OHG2 and a G4.

You all do us proud!!!

Keeping on going….

The biggie of the results to catch up with has to be Westminster (hopefully the 180 odd who looked on here last Tuesday/Wednesday weren’t too disappointed we were still on Winter break). GCH Finnabair Ardmore Ned made it an incredible three BOBs on the trot so it just has to be one word, besides congratulations, WOW. Best Opposite Sex was his daughter CH Tipperary That Girl. Two Selects were awarded and they were the brother & sister CH Cormac McCarthy & CH Ber-D-Mar My Dream of You Aoife with sire GCH Rainbow Springs Wicklow Warrior of Ber-D-Mar taking the Award of Merit so judge Ron Menaker could certainly see families and more than some may realise. Ned and the dam of the Ber-D-Mar siblings are brother & sister. Ned’s grandsire was the brother of Wicklow Warrior’s grandsire (English bred by a German dog) so besides family we are talking international! Thanks to Jane Fenton for the photographs

Back in January Kathleen O’Donnell (Australia) wrote “Tara (Taufield Queen Of Tara) 6mths first show in Minor got her bitch challenge and BOB then went on to win Minor of group she was so good and stood so well for me she performed well in General Specials (Best in Show) I was so proud of my girl today”. Also in January GCH Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney took BOB/BOBOH and Group 4 at Merrimack Valley KC. The group of shows that make up the Northern Ohio Winter Classic saw two Best of Breeds for Daulton’s Rory & one for Kilkenny’s Granite Aine of Claddagh. At Erie Ch Daulton’s Dark Lily of Caradoc was BOB and then got the nod for Group 3. Two more Group placings for GCH Abberann Torcan, a Gp2 in Minnesota and a Group 4 at Osh Kosh.

The Finns don’t notice Winter so are out and about as usual! A Group 1 for Gleann Dear Dandelion and a Group 1 and BIS4 for Pearytail Cruella de Gleann at Kajaani Puppy Show. At Turkuu International Gleann Cotton Candy was BOB with Stiubhard Cutie Pie at Gleann BOS and obtaining her Finnish Championship. She followed this up with BOB at Parkano Group Show and then took a fabulous Reserve Best In Show. Pearytail Candy McCoy was BOB at Lahti Puppy Show and then went on to Group 3.

In Germany at Chemnitz Fire & Ice Moonraker was twice BOB and at Sporting Terrier of Yorkshire Jeonty Diamond Ring was Best of Breed. In Denmark Gleann Willy the Whale became a Danish Champion. A new Norwegian Champion came into being in MacNallys Glenna-Roisin and at Gent BOB was awarded to Bregorrey Wannabe Victory By Jeonty

The mighty Oliver doesn’t care that it’s Winter as he earned an “Excellent Containers” title at the  Performance Scent Dogs trial in New Hampshire early February.

A great few weeks everybody-very, very well done.

All that can be said is WOW!

It’s the top slot today, and so it should be, as Finnabair Winston O’Reilley, BN, RA, GN, CD, JE, THDA, TD, VCD1,NAP, NJP, CGCA, NW1, RATS, RE, CAT, can now add CDX (AKC Companion Dog Excellent, Open Obedience Title) to that long, long list. He’s the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to earn Companion Dog Excellent under AKC rules and a long time ago there was one under KC rules, are there any others out there?

Great work Mark and Winston, you do us all proud!

Oaks (Philadelphia) has four days of shows and was two Best of Breeds and one Best Opposite for Tipperary That Girl, one BOB and 3 Best Opposites for Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea and Ber-D-Mar My Dream of You Aoife took the other BOB. A weekend of four shows in Ohio saw Abberann Torcan take 2 Best of Breeds and 1 Best Opposite with Emerald Isle Keely with Daulton one BOB and three BOS. Daulton’s Rory may “only” have taken one Best of Breed but he topped the lot with Owner Handler Group 1.

Congratulations.

Winston, 2 qualifying scores to more than give him CDX

Shows R Us

It was the big weekend for American Glen of Imaal Terrier enthusiasts with Montgomery Terrier Show (where the American Club Specialty is held) and the accompanying cluster of Hatboro 1 & 2, Devon and this year Morris & Essex which is only held every 5 years. Everything was looking good and then it happened; Hurricane Joaquin. Devon had to throw in the towel as it is held on a show site at the bottom of a hill but the two Hatboro Shows went ahead in, for the second one, truly awful conditions. Emerald Isle Keely with Daulton and Bar-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea took BOB & BOS at Hatboro 1 and then swopped positions for Morris & Essex. Sweet William was again in the top awards at Hatboro 2 but had to bow a paw to his sister Bar-D-Mar Charm One of Wicklow.

There was an excellent entry of 47 for Montgomery. Finnabair Ardmore Ned came out of retirement to take Best of Breed and then on to make the first cut in the Group. Only the second time for the breed at this show. Best Opposite Sex was Keely. Liberty’s Darren of Daulton was Best Veteran with Best Puppy being awarded to Tipperary Sweet Rosie O’Grady. Tipperary That Girl was the winner of Bred By. American Shows also award “Select” and these went to Darren and Finnabair Song O’ My Heart. Brace was won by Laura Trainor’s Niamh & Kylee and they now get to keep the trophy!

Not all US Glens were at Montgomery though as Abberann Torcan was continuing to fly his very successful flag in the Mid West with 2 Group Ones and a Reserve Best in Show at Stone City, Illinois. The Abberann affix was also flying in Ireland with a Best of Breed for Abberann Phelan with Best Bitch being awarded to Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore. At Tuulos Group Show in Finland Gleann Damn Daisy took Top Honours. At IJsselshow 2015  (Zwolle, Netherlands) My Dear Fellow Billy The Kid McJake’s was the boy who took home the big rosette.

Congratulations everybody-a great weekend!
