GCH CH Finnabair Ardmore Ned
The Colorado Kennel Club offered lots of points for those willing to skip Westminster. One dog, the Glen of Imaal Terrier, GCH CH Finnabair Ardmore Ned, made the most of the big entries, picking up both BIS and more than 3,000 points.
GCH CH Eastern-Magic Fly Me Safe
Sunday judge John Wade picked Ned out of a lineup that included the Golden Retriever, GCH CH Summit’s The Vanilla Sky, the Whippet, GCH CH Starline’s Jimmy Choo, the Mastiff, GCH CH Pioneer’s Shabri-Els Shaken Bacon, the Maltese, GCH CH Vellavicas Fabulous Dior, the RBIS, the Chow Chow, GCH CH Eastern-Magic Fly Me Safe, and the Australian Shepherd, GCH CH Catalina BarefootBlueJeanNight.
CH Qazara Ti Amo
Ned and the Golden, Wally, would return to the final ring to plead their case with judge Jay Richardson. They were joined by the Longhaired Dachshund, GCH CH Telkel Need Coffee Now SL, the Mastiff, GCH CH Friends Sargeant Breakthrough, the Smooth Coat Chihuahua, GCH CH Shorepointe’s Buddy Dazzler, the RBIS, the French Bulldog, CH Qazara Ti Amo, and the Australian Shepherd, Impacts Blew By Ewe CGC.
The two wins were Ned’s first of 2015 and make him the top winning Glen of Imaal Terrier of all time, with three career Bests. Ned, who is the only Glen of Imaal to win a BIS in the last ten years, finished last year with one BIS and 15 Terrier Groups. Congratulations to breeder/owner Mary McDaniel DVM, co-breeder Margret Ewald, owners Donald Doyle & Ann Doyle, and handler Beverly Osment.
