Big Win for North!

A fantastic day at the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Club of Great Britain Championship Show for Belatarr North by Northwest ShCM, where he came from winning Veteran Dog to be awarded Best Dog (collecting his second Challenge Certificate) before going on to be named Best Opposite Sex and Reserve Best in Show, all under Gundog Specialist judge Christine Ryan. Huge congratulations to Irene and North!

Cuba takes to the water.

What better way to keep cool on the hottest day of the year than to explore our river:

Cuba is approaching 13 weeks old and has excitedly splashed and paddled in the river before, but today she first retrieved a stick and then went for a series of full-on deep water swims, demonstrating an amazing technique right from the very first attempt!

Heading out….
…and heading back.
Wet, but keeping cool in the heat of the day.
Now to investigate some more of the garden.
Drying off.

Introducing Cuba!

We are delighted to announce that the newest addition to our Belatarr clan, and the puppy staying with us from Aja’s recent litter, is Belatarr Cuba, formerly known as Miss Purple. We will look forward to documenting her ongoing adventures!

Stacked at 7 weeks.
Wrestling with mum, Aja – a favourite pastime for both of them!
Yes?

Week 5 Puppy Update

Another highly eventful week for the youngsters, with several important milestones reached. The erratic weather has meant that the pups have only this last week been able to get outside for the first time, but some warm sunny days have now given them lots of opportunities to explore their outdoor run and gain valuable exposure to outdoor sites and sounds at the same time.

Lots of visitors have come to see them too, with many toes chewed and many laps fallen asleep on.

At the same time, they transitioned seamlessly from hand-feeding of solid foods to using their big-boys-and-girls weaner feeder, something that every generation of Belatarr puppies before them have used and benefitted from.

Also, just like every previous generation of Belatarr puppies, these 5 love snuggling into their mini-den, whether they are indoors or out:

One inside…
Three inside…
All Five inside!

And finally, this week’s portrait shots:

Week 3 Puppy Update

Big changes this week as the pups’ eyesight and hearing come fully online, their walking grows stronger and more stable and they start to explore their new world. We can now finally see their rapidly developing heads properly too, so without further ado, these are their 3-week-old headshots:

Miss Lime.

And not forgetting, some action shots as the pups romp (and chew) together.

Ready to break out.

Then back for a snooze.

Week 2 Puppy Update.

A big week for the youngsters, with their first attempts to walk (the wobbly spider phase) starting on day 11 and Miss Purple taking the lead by opening one eye on the evening of day 12. Everyone’s eyes are just about semi-open now, (day 14) but it will be a blurry further week or so before things come into proper focus and they can finally see where they are. The past few days have also seen (or heard, at least) a variety of mini barks and sleep baby-growls and squeaks as their ears have opened and they start to practise their vocal skills.

A whorl of puppies.

In the holding bay whilst their bedding is changed.

Miss Purple sleep-suckling, Miss Pink snoozes on.

It’s exhausting work, being 14 days old.
