The “Glen Sit”

Unique to Glen of Imaal Terriers is a sitting position in which the dogs sit on their hind ends and hold their entire body erect in a posture not commonly seen in other breeds.  Not surprisingly, it’s known as the “Glen Sit.”  Did we pull this tidbit out of our hat?  You be the judge:
