Belatarr makes breed history at Boston Championship!

A truly incredible start to the year for team Belatarr with brother & sister taking both Best Dog and Best Bitch today at the Boston Championship Show under judge Jill Peak. Belatarr Charlie Parker was awarded Best Dog and Belatarr Mahalia Jackson ShCM (Billie) took Best Bitch & then won Best of Breed with Charlie Reserve Best of Breed.

Many, many hours later Billie then thrilled us beyond measure when she also won the Gundog Group under judge Aidine Howes – the first and only time EVER that a Wirehaired Vizsla has been awarded Best Gundog at a General Championship show and so the highest show level reached by any HWV in the UK.

We are just so unbelievably proud of Irene & Billie’s historic win and this first for the breed! 🙂

The judge’s glowing critiques for Billie were:

I was so pleased with the beautiful dogs in this group.
.. my choice for G1 was Belatarr Mahalia Jackson, W/h Vizsla, I was looking for a winner who not only possessed the correct structure but was also sound on the move with good ring presence – this bitch fitted the bill & in addition she was presented in excellent body & muscular condition with a correct wire coat which gave beautiful face furnishings & covered her whole body from the tip of her nose to the tip of her toes. She did not put a foot wrong with her true & steady movement, I feel privileged to have been told afterwards this has given this breed its first group winner.

3 years old bitch excels in breed type, shown in good coat & condition. lovely head well balanced, good neck & shoulders, good bone, legs & feet, lovely body & balance, good quarters & set on, moved well both ways with reach & drive maintaining her topline. BB & BOB, was delighted to see her take G1 in a strong gundog group.
