North Star.

Huge congratulations to Irene and North (Belatarr North by Northwest) who today took another Best of Breed and also Gundog Group 2 at Torquay & District Canine Society and in so doing gained the final points needed for North’s Kennel Club’s Show Certificate of Merit.

Although only a handful of HWV’s have ever managed to achieve this honour North becomes the 6th Belatarr to earn their ShCM, which is the most, by far, for any HWV Kennel, and also means that all three of Irene’s Belatarr babies have now gained their certificates – a truly outstanding achievement in our breed.

Jupiter Rising.

Just a few days after hitting 6-months of age young Belatarr Jupiter (Luka) made his show debut with fabulous back-to-back Best Puppy in Breed, Reserve Best of Breed and 2 Puppy Group placings – Jenny reports:

“We spent all weekend showing but it was worth it! Debut shows for our special Belatarr Jupiter, Luka, at just over 6 months old and he was a smashing boy. So grateful to all the judges who were gentle and patient with our baby boy. Saturday saw us at Grantham & District Open where big brother Belatarr Hercules was BOB and Luka was BPIB followed by shortlisted and then a lovely Puppy Group 4. Sunday we moved more locally to Hitchin & District where Luka was again BPIB, as well as being awarded Reserve BOB and went on to gain another Puppy Group 4. Cue lots of cuddles.”

Very smart and well-balanced dog of just 6 months. Moderately broad
skull, broad nose, lovely eye, ears hanging close to cheeks, correct, clean and complete dentition, strong neck set
neatly into well-placed shoulders, well-proportioned body, excellent quality bone all through, nice feet, moved very
well. BP. RBOB and Puppy Group 4

Martin Rees (Hitchin & District)

I was very taken with this youngster. Well balanced all through with excellent head and expression. Well constructed. His coat just needs to
come on a little more. Accurate movement and very sound.

Belatarr wins the SWKA Championship Double

A fantastic day for Belatarr at the South Wales Kennel Association Championship show under breed specialist judge, Bev Smith: Sh Ch Belatarr Mahalia Jackson was awarded Best Bitch whilst her baby brother Belatarr North by Northwest took Best Dog and was then awarded Best of Breed – making a second time that Belatarr has now won the “Championship Double”.

This was the first ever Champ Show BOB for North, following on from his first Best Dog CC back at National Gundog in August. SWKA is a special event for North too, since he was awarded a sensational Gundog Puppy Group 2 win at the same show exactly 2 years ago to the day!

Huge congratulations to Irene for her fabulous double-win.

The critique for North’s BOB was:

This dog has that je ne sais quoi. He oozes character from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail. Super head and expression with a soft but intelligent look. Lovely eye shape and colour. Plenty of furnishings giving his head that really striking square appearance in profile. Strong neck of moderate length and slightly arched. Good depth and width of chest giving plenty of heart room. Lovely moderate angulation front and rear. Lovely harsh jacket and shown in good hard condition. Although top size for the breed everything is in proportion as it should be. Excellent outline when stacked and he didn’t disappoint on the move. Foot perfect he flowed with ease around the ring with ground covering movement. When coming towards and away he was straight and true. I was pleased to award him BD & BOB today.

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.

Young North with his HWVCGB Haunsperg Trophy.
