The video of the judging can be seen here
Today is the second day of the American Kennel Club “biggie” Westminster and day 2 is Terrier Day so the Glen of Imaal Terriers are there. The Westminster system is very different from the Crufts one insofar as numbers are very, very limited but the top five Glens in the country will be on show plus one from the lottery entry giving judge Mrs. Virginia Latham Smith 6 Glens to assess. The show is always of interest to Glen exhibitors worldwide but this year UK enthusiasts have a really vested one as four of the six have UK bred sires!
Glens are scheduled for 10.30am and Westminster always has live videos of each breed so keep an eye on the website anytime after 4.00pm UK time.
Westminster is the first big show of the International calendar but you can only exhibit there on your 2011 results. The top five in each breed get an automatic invitation and then it is in the lap of the Gods of your entry will get through before the “entry full” sign goes up. 2012 will see six Glen of Imaal Terriers strutting their stuff in New York so somebody made it through!
Westminster differs from Crufts insofar as only the top five in every breed can guarantee on getting an entry to the show. Others, if a Champion, can apply but “the lottery” finishes as soon as the designated number is reached and 2012s (due to work at The Garden) has been reduced by 500. The top 5 Glen of Imaal Terriers are:-
GCH Cill Dara’s Fergus Of Daulton (Ch Briarhill Drumlish – Ch Daulton’s Darling Orlaith)
GCH Coleraine’s Mandalay Royalty (Ch Malsville Soldier Blue – Coleraine’s Budget Inn)
GCH Daulton’s Emerald Green (Ch Finnebair Let Freedom Ring – Ch Daulton’s Darling Darby)
GCH Finnabair Song O’My Heart (Ch Malsville Soldier Blue – GCH Finnabair Fiona The Wicked NAP)
GCH Rainbow Springs Wicklow’s Warrior Of Ber -D-Mar (Ch Pajantick Sky Masterson At Malsville – Ch Rainbow Springs Gotta Lotta Moxie)
