GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIER

VD: 1) Multi Champion Abberann Conan, Res CC & Best Veteran. Of course I instrantly recognised this old boy as my BOB at Crufts looked it up and it was 2008, amazing he is still in fine condition 10 years later. His muscle in his hindquarters is quite unbelievable, he is so fit. I much admired his condition & type still. Gorgeous head & eye, a better front than most in the breed. Nails need attention & his coat is very silky now. Such a happy dog moving with such verve.

PD: 1) Borderglens The Edge with Romainville. Two real baby boys! Delightful temperament and beautiful heads, eyes & expressions. The winner more confident moving & slightly better in topline & tail carriage. Both have excellent bone & good hard coats coming along. 2) Teamrach Rock Steady Beat with Romainville. A little taller & needs more ring practice. Good neck, promising rear, but certainly needs time to mature & sort his head out for showing.

LD:) 1) Pajantick Razamataz. Coat rather all over the place & looks very patchy. I would be inclined to pull the whole lot out and start again, looks two-toned at present. A grand dog right through & moves well all round. Good strong legs & super bone. A beautiful head tops it all.

OD: 1) Abberann Cosmic Cowboy CC,BOB. Although lots I preferred about the old boy his coat wasn’t as hard as this younger boy. Strong & very fit. Lovely head & neat ears, which are well set & carried. OK in front, grand bone for his size. Good firm backline, nice over croup. Well made quarters & tailset is good. A powerful impressive mover. Has a collar line round neck which seems to cut his withers & makes him appear flat there.

JB: 1) Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae. Good head properties, neat small ears. Fair front & she moves well coming towards. Furnishings too soft, particularly on head. Excellent body for age, well set & carried tail. Powerful build for a junior, if her coat hardens up she will do well in future.

PGB: 1) Romainville Rock’N’Rolla at Coedrhosyn. Probably up to maximum height of 14ins, but she is in balance for height to length proportion. Very strong & sturdily built. Most lovely head & expression, neat ears. Ok in front & rear angles for the breed, moves well all round.

LB: 1) Romainville Maggie May Res CC. 5year old in good form for body & strength. Good firm backline, pleasing head & broad jaw. Ok in front as she is allowed to turn her front feet out a trifle. Sound rear excellent on the move. 2) Amhard Jessie Jay. Good hard head hair & backcoat. Has a nice strong head for a bitch. Fair front, heavy & very overweight in body, she “plods” moving. I liked her a lot & in better condition could do well.

OB: 1) Romainville Whistle Dixie CC. Very out of coat but what was there was hard & workmanlike. Lovely head & expression. Excellent bone & feet, good in body properties and firm topline. Enough rear angulation, well set & carried tail. Good precise mover all ways. 2) Ir Ch Abberann Reach For The Stars Ryanne. Knuckles over in front & too much crook. Otherwise a lovely bitch all through, if her front had been better she would probably have been Best of Breed. I loved her head & body. Correct size for a bitch & so powerful in rear too.

Glen of Imaal Terriers WKC

PD (1)

1 Hardy’s Amard High Flyer, very smart & good headed boy, showing the whites of eyes a touch. Neat ears carried well, wrap round front but a little too elbowy. Super body & quarters, lovely coat coming, moving well in rear & profile, great temperament. BP.

JD & PGD (0).

LD (3)

1 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Billy Whizz, stole my heart with his wicked terrier expression. Great head, correct muzzle, strength & length, neat ears, OK in front, well up on his feet, great body. Good coat texture just about to blow. Moved well in all directions keeping correct outline & tail carriage. CC & BOB;

2 Quinn’s Kirikee Ronan O’Gara, smart boy, lovely outline in profile movement, good harsh coat, pleasing head. Eyes a touch light & note quite the up & down soundness of 1 but has a decent stride in profile. Well set & carried tail;

3 Welch’s Romainville Brannigan at Brockland.

OD (4)

Good class of lovely terriers.

1 Welch’s Ch/Int Ch Brockland Brayhead Lad, good for size & type, super outline, pleasing head & eye placement, sturdy sound body, good legs, wrap round front & tail carried out at 45 degrees. Moved a touch close going away but certainly well muscled & such a strong easy stride in profile. RCC;

2 Ashcroft’s Romainville Typhoon, a bit too straight legged & a touch too tall I imagine. Loved his head & earset, good expressive eyes, excellent body & rear, well set tail. A bit out of coat but what was there was hard. Good sound dog all round;

3 Hadley’s Donvaleset Rebus.

PB (1)

1 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Rock On Ruby, lovely head, eyes & expression, good folding ears, enough neck, OK in front & lovely thick feet. Big enough for a bitch & not in proper coat. Well set tail, good strong bone. Slight dip in back before the rise over loin but this should improve with time.

JB (0).

PGB (4)

First two both dropping their tails.

1 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Jean Genie, lovely to go over, super head & muzzle, sound front & forechest prominent, excellent body, ribbing, topline & quarters. Precise mover, just spoilt by a drooping tail. RCC;

2 Sharpe & Betts’ Romanville Brigid of Pines, good outline & shape. Not quite the movement of 1 up & down & also lost her tail. Sound legs & feet, pleasing head & strength of muzzle. Coat a little ‘bitty’;

3 Ashcroft’s Romainville Moira.

LB (1) A.

OB (1)

1 Withers’ Romainville Aoife at Pajantick, lovely bitch, sadly out of coat, I saw a touch of hard red hairs there & there. Sound, excellent mover, typy, feminine yet strong & correct for size.
Her type, movement & quality won over a poor coat. CC.
