JUDGE'S NOTES

It was a great honour to judge the first Championship of the Glen of Imaal Terrier Association and in the 25th year of the Association's existance. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and the hospitality shown to Ann and myself was first class. The show was very well organised and the atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed. The record entry for the breed was 49 dogs making 52 entries with only 4 absentees, which were bitches. Overall I found the quality to be quite good and the CC's could have gone to a few fine examples of this fairly unique terrier. Handling left a lot to be desired in some classes, but I'm sure this will improve and do better justice to the dogs. Heads in general were quite good but I would still like to see more definition in some (stop); mouths have improved with just a couple of border line cases; coats are still a little mixed, as was presentation; ears and eyes of course play a big part in expression and a few full drop houndy ears don't help. However, eyes were generally round and of dark shade with just a few on the light side. Bone, toplines and quarters were good and it was pleasing to see most of these terriers in hard muscular condition, which is not usually the norm these days, but I did have to penalise some fine examples of this breed for carrying far too much weight, which put them out of balance, but all in all a challenge that I enjoyed very much.
