Triumph for North.

At the grand old age of two and 1/2 years (to the very day!) young Belatarr North By Northwest scored a fabulous win today at the National Gundog Championship where breed specialist judge Mike Lewin awarded him 1st Limit Dog and then the Best Dog Challenge Certificate, North’s first CC.

….and, not to be outdone, North’s big sister Billie – Sh CH Belatarr Mahalia Jackson ShCM – also picked up the Reserve Bitch CC (her 5th, to go with her 6 CC’s).

All in all a sensational and hugely memorable day for Belatarr and massive congratulations to Irene, North & Billie!

Billie’s Windsor win.

I was thrilled to witness Sh CH Belatarr Mahalia Jackson Sh CM win her 6th CC, and her second of 2017, at the Windsor Championship under Judge Chris Bexon this last week. This win means that Billie also becomes only the second ever HWV bitch to win more than 5 Challenge Certificates – a sensational achievement!

Belatarr at the Annual Awards round-up.

A belated, post-puppy post to celebrate what were, once again, some great Belatarr achievements at the two breed club annual awards.

The Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Association awards tabulate Championship Show results, whereas the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Club of Great Britain include both Championship and Open show results in their calculations.

This year’s HWVA Top Dog was Sh CH Belatarr Hercules who overtook the breed CC record holder to score this fantastic win and who receives the Arany Bowl as a result, whilst his brother, Belatarr Charlie Parker ShCM, was ranked the third placed dog of the year – a super double for the boys – and his older sister, Sh CH Belatarr Mahalia Jackson ShCM (Billie), was awarded second placed Bitch of the year for the second year running, having won it outright the previous year.

Meanwhile, over at the HWVCGB awards, the Belatarr boys occupied all of the top three spots for the year with THE HAUNSPERG TROPHY, awarded to the show male of the year, won by Belatarr North by Northwest, who very narrowly beat Hercules into second place with Charlie placed third – a fabulous clean sweep for the boys! Billie was named second-placed show female of the year for the second year running (having, once again, won this accolade outright the year before) and young North was also named second top show dog of the year overall.

Many congratulations to Jenny, David & Irene on their great and very well deserved wins for the 2016 season.

Championship Show Roundup.

In between all the puppy shenanigans back here at HQ team Belatarr have been enjoying a terrific run at the last three Championship shows.

The Scottish Kennel Club Championship, under judge Anne Moss,  brought  a 5th CC for Sh Ch Belatarr Mahalia Jackson ShCM (Billie) as she was named Best Bitch, and, having just moved up to Limit classes, young Belatarr North By Northwest was rewarded with Reserve Dog CC too. This win makes Billie the second highest awarded bitch in breed history, an incredible achievement, whilst North gained his KC Stud Book number with his RCC, another great milestone for him and Irene.

The following weekend saw the Bath Championship, presided over by judge Blake Crocker, where Billie and North both had a repeat of the same results that they achieved in Scotland, with Billie named Best Bitch and North Reserve Best Dog:

Next up was the Southern Counties Championship, under judge Betty Smith, and this time it was the boys time to triumph, with Belatarr winning all of the top three male classes – Belatarr Vertigo (Sabi) was 1st in a tough Post Graduate class, Belatarr Charlie Parker ShCM placed 1st in Limit Dog and Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules took 1st in Open Dog, before going on to be awarded Best Dog and then Best Of Breed. This was a particularly impressive achievement for Herc as, on the way to be named Best of Breed, he needed to beat all 3 of the highest awarded bitches in breed history (including his own older sister, Billie!) who, unusually, were all entered and present in the ring on the day.

 

Huge congratulations to Jenny, David, Irene and Vivien on all of their achievements with their Belatarr girls and boys, and I’m very much looking forward to joining you all back on teh show circuit once puppy duties have been completed!
