A truly amazing day for us at the Birmingham Championship show, presided over by judge and Gundog expert Di Arrowsmith –  Belatarr took a record-breaking Best Dog, Best Bitch AND Best Puppy:

Birmingham triple win

Belatarr North By Northwest taking Best Puppy at 7 months of age.

 “A very happy baby, up to size already he excelled in skull proportions, forehand angulation, topline & hindquarters. Very balanced on the move for one so young. BP.”

Di Arrowsmith

Belatarr Charlie Parker - 1st Open Dog & Best Dog.

“Loved this boy. Typical all through & just as the Standard states, robust & stronger boned than its cousin the smooth Vizsla. He excelled in coat, head & expression, leathers & clean neck. Sound front & on good well padded feet, ideal angles fore & aft, firm topline held throughout the class. Best on the move in this class. A very worthy Best Dog.”

“Substance, bone, type & quality. A grand bitch who I later learned is sister to my BD. She has all his qualities, head planes, eye, expression, leathers, front & feet, heartroom, angles fore & aft & a firm topline in between. In good coat & very good on the move. BB & BOB”

As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one day North’s sister Ethel, Belatarr To Catch A Thief, also made her (and her handlers!) show debut and was rewarded with an excellent 2nd Puppy Bitch, which also immediately qualified her for Crufts 2016 – Many congratulations!

Immediately following the Champ Show the HWVA hosted it’s annual Open show (in the same ring as the Champ Show classes) and the Belatarr Boys collected another three 1st places, with North taking 1st Minor Puppy Dog, Best Puppy Dog and Best Puppy in Show, whilst his big brother Hercules was awarded 1st Post Graduate Dog and Charlie was 1st Limit Dog. Their brother Kofi took second in Graduate Dog and baby Sabi was a close 2nd to his litter brother North in Minor Puppy Dog, all under judge and long-time breed expert Diane Parry.
