A sensational day for 8 month-old Belatarr North by Northwest at yesterday’s South Wales Kennel Association Championship where he and Irene were first awarded Best Puppy dog and then Best Puppy in breed by judge Colin Woodward:

A good few hours later North & Irene also took a fantastic Gundog Puppy Group 2 under judge Terence Balfour-Burgess – one of the highest awards ever achieved by any HWV puppy in the UK.

Not one for resting on his laurels just 3 days after his Group placing young North had another great day at the Gundog Society of Wales Championship Show. Here he was awarded 1st Puppy, Best Puppy in Breed and a terrific Reserve Best Dog, under breed judge Ed Casey, for which he received this superb critique:

Up to size 10 month old dog puppy but cannot be denied for his excellent outline, correct angulation & pleasing head properties. Pleases for head shape, moderate stop, good eye colour, enough furnishings. Strong neck, well angulated front, good forechest, strong bone & excellent feet. Strong level topline, ribbed well back, pleasing quarters, short hocks well let down. Very good up & back & moved out freely in profile. Coat of good texture, could be darker but this did not detract, should have a great future. RBD & BP

We’re just thrilled by this super-joyful, happy boy who just loves everything that he does (in any out of the ring!) and never fails to make everyone smile. Many congratulations to Irene for her second huge Champ show Group award of 2015 too!!
