After seven long, unsociable months, we have finally managed to socialise!
Sky and Clodagh are keeping their cool, despite the tropical heatwave. They both appreciate an early morning paddle in the Broads - and have been making new friends at the local beach. Photos promised before the end of the month!
A new summer haircut has proved to be inspired timing. Both dogs emerged from a grooming session with Edward Scissorhands - lucky it wasn't Sweeney Todd - but they clearly enjoy feeling hair-free and carefree. Their coats were clipped and will soon grow back.
#FeelingNostalgic! We've been reminiscing about Sky's first litter and our happy reunion with Jeff two years ago. We love following Team Tara from afar, but we look forward to the day we can finally catch up with them all properly.
I'll keep you all Pupdated with our puppy plans. We also have an ear to the ground regarding other reputable UK breeders with a planned litter.

WET DOG FOOD TOO!
SUNSHINE AND RAIN
We were very sad to hear that Sky's one true love, Mutley, has fallen asleep for the last time.
A brilliant ambassador for the breed, Mutley was the most beautiful wheaten Glen. Larger than life and loved by so many the world over, he leaves an enormous, Mutley-shaped hole.
Our hearts go out to Nicki and Richard. We believe that all dogs are a reflection of their humans. Mutley lived such a full and happy life. He enjoyed his final treat of ice cream and was loved until the end.

I'm emerging from lock-down like a hesitant hedgehog, but the beach beckons! I'll keep you all Pupdated.

LOVELY GLEN LOVERS!
How are we all doing? Strange days indeed.
Thanks to all of you for your kind messages. We hope you are keeping well and staying sane - whatever the correct definition of that is!
So, we regroup. We hope that next year will bring a new addition to our family. We are both very keen to continue with our small venture.
I'll keep you Pupdated.

A Novel, by JO CAPON
We often get asked to recommend books about Glen of Imaal terriers. But we have not managed to find one yet that's really worth shouting about. There is no substitute for chatting with other Glen owners and breeders.
I'd love to know what YOU would like to see in a book about Glens. All suggestions gratefully received.
