Belatarr Bath Brace.

Billie (Belatarr Mahalia Jackson) and brother Gryphon (Belatarr Dizzy Gilespie) started a new chapter in the history of Belatarr this weekend when they hit the Brace class at a beautiful, sunshine-drenched Bath Championship Show.

Billie was first awarded an excellent 2nd place (out of 8) in her first ever Post Graduate Bitch Class under top judge Pam Blay. The judges glowing critique read:

What a cracking class to judge. 2. Belatarr Mahalia Jackson, heavier coated pretty bitch with a good head and expression, lovely body proportions, strong neck carried well on the move, well made front assembly with strong bone and feet, good ribcage and loin and well muscled hind quarters, held her topline on the move with correctly carried tail, won her place in this strong class on her balance and showmanship.”

Billie then transferred hotfoot (or hotpawed?) across to the Brace Stakes Class where she and brother Gryphon were one of a giant entry of 19 pairs under judge Elina Haapaniemi. This was their first ever brace class and, at just 19 months of age, they were also much the youngest, as well as much the least experienced of the nineteen entries… so both their handler, Irene, and Tim, watching the results back at Belatarr HQ were absolutely thrilled when they were awarded 3rd place!

Huge congratulations to Irene, Billie & Gryphon and many thanks, also, to Simon Harris for capturing the event in photos:
