Glen of Imaal Terrier Enthusiasts and Fanciers Club

Breed Club Open Show 24th September 2021


Thank you all so much for entering your dogs under me this was numerically a very good entry. Thank you also to my two stewards.

One concern for me with the exhibits today was the over trimming, standard requires coat maybe tidied but one was groomed like a Dandie on his head.

All were shown in a clean jacket and all had super temperaments.

Some new exhibitors today I do hope you enjoyed the experience and hope to see you again in the future.

Puppy Dog (1)

1) Garner C:  Jeonty Murphy Shading Dark impressive 10 month boy, very promising, super jacket, well; presented, excellent broad shoulders, muscled hindquarters, moved well, stop well defined, dark eye, I really liked him. B.P.

Junior Dog ( no entries )

Post Graduate Dog  (2)

1)Kirkwood C.: Jeonty Kylo Ren at Cazcade. Litter brother to Limit dog and very similar in make and shape. He had a super outline on the move with free movement, good width to head, small well placed ears, correct large teeth. Super red wheaten coat, well handled.

2) Whelband P. Jeonty Little Legend Milo, Quietly handling to show off all his boys good points. Firm in outline on the move. Well set tail. Lovely expression.

Limit Dog (3,1 abs)

1) Rogers C. Jeonty Dameron Anakin, over trimmed on his head but a super wheaten jacket, correct teeth. I loved him as soon as he entered the ring and he is hard to fault, great ring presence. Head has width and strength, defined stop, correct pigmentation, length of leg to height correct. Holding a super outline on the move which was with purpose, strong in hindquarters. Muscular shoulders, super feet covered the ground and handled very well. I will be surprised if he doesn’t become a champion. BD BIS

2) Hardy A. Amhard Quickfire,,medium size, strong body, moved a little close behind, wheaten coat could have been better presented, strong head, correct expression well placed ears , well off for bone,

Open Dog (6,1 abs)

1) Hannington J. CH Boudivella Osca, excellent coat and presented a super outline on the move  which was powerful from strong hindquarters and broad muscular forequarters, lovely eye and expression can understand why he is a champion RBD

2) Bailey S  Zippor Brendan very  good type, loved his head and good pigmentation, well handled.

3) Tobijanski W. Romainville Becks Blue for Zippor. The handler worked well with this dog and got the best from this lovely Glen.
