National Gundog Roundup.

Having not been able to get out to the Champ show circuit since Crufts, way back in Spring, it was great to catch up with everybody and to see the Belatarr babies in action again today at National Gundog. So needless to say I was thrilled to see Jenny’s lovely boys, Charlie Parker & Hercules, win the Brace Class from an entry of 20 pairs of Gundogs – this was only their second ever brace class and their second win out of two!

Their brother and sister, Billie & Gryphon, won the same brace class at the same show exactly 12 months ago too, making this win even more special. Meanwhile, over in the main breed judging, Herc also picked up 1st in Post Graduate Dog:

Most improved today, though, was most definitely Vivien’s handsome Kofi (Belatarr Sculptor), now maturing into such a classy boy with a super, harsh coat and hugely improved movement.

In between judging I also got to get a look at the progress made by young Belatarr North by Northwest (AKA North) just a few days short of him reaching 6 months and less than a week before his show debut – I’m so very pleased with how he is developing and it was wonderful to such positive, free-flowing movement and superb carriage in a 5-month old puppy:
