Belatarr Boys Triumph at Manchester Championship.

The second Championship show of the year was held at a snowbound, deep-frozen Staffordshire County showground, but happily we were immune to the cold in the big and well-heated main hall and enjoyed the huge indoor rings, which must surely rank as the best anywhere on the show circuit.  The Wires were presided over by the vastly experienced visiting Finnish judge, Kari Jarvinen, and this was most definitely a day for our boys, with Belatarr’s taking 1st place in all three of the classes in which they were competing.

First up 11 month old Belatarr North By Northwest took 1st Puppy Dog, from an entry of 6, then Belatarr Hercules headed up a classy entry of 7 males in Post Graduate Dog, whilst his big brother, Belatarr Charlie Parker, was awarded a memorable 1st Open Dog, beating both of the breed male CC record holders in the process.

Charlie took Best Dog at Boston, the first Champ Show of 2016, but it was his brother Herc who really shone today and, following his two reserve CC’s in 2015, he stepped up another gear to win his first ever Championship Show Best Dog. Fabulous!

Special mention must also go to Marie and her lovely baby Matilda, Belatarr Thirtynine Steps, who, after a very intensive crash-course in ringcraft training over the last few months, were awarded 3rd from an entry of 8 in Puppy Bitch and another super 3rd in Junior Bitch at only their second ever show – there will be many more awards to come, of that we have no doubt!
