To inspire our members to take part in dog shows, thereby increasing public
awareness of the breed in Sweden, SAIGIT has organized the competition
"Irish Glen of Imaal Terrier of the Year" since 2005.
Official international and national dog shows in Sweden, and inofficial shows
arranged by SAIGIT, can give scores for the competition.
After each dog show, webmaster checks Swedish Kennel Clubs dog info
database, and calculates the scores for participating dogs.
GLEN OF THE YEAR 2023
The new show season and
a new competition has started.
Glen of the year 2022 was Gleann Nice Midsummer Aurora (Lucy),
and Glen of the year BIM was Nigel (Figge).
Congratulations to both of them!
Silence. No word spoken. The Glen has seen history.
Its wild mountains and its dog. Time stands still. The Glen, its terriers have survived time. A little dog,long in body, a family friend.
All, all are gone, the Scottish Highlanders who manned the Black Banks. 1798 fast forgotten.The terrier lives on. The mountains and their Glen are at peace.
But the Glen of Imaal Terrier speaks. I am an Irish Breed, I have known St.Patric. I was here in 1798, I knew Micael Dwyer.
All, all are gone, I still live on. The Irish Glen of Imaal Terrier.
