A simply amazing day for Belatarr at yesterday’s HWVA Championship – the biggest annual gathering of the breed anywhere in the world:

Junior Dog
1st – Belatarr Vertigo
2nd – Belatarr North By Northwest

Belatarr North by Northwest.

1. Ryan’s Belatarr Vertigo, won by a head! Loved his classic head & expression with a lovely eye & well set & carried ears, good neck & shoulders, lovely profile movement really using his sound hindquarters & well made forequarters, he is balanced & a lovely type, a good size, well boned, excellent coat in tip-top condition with lovely muscletone; 2. Collier’s Belatarr North By Northwest, well boned & bodied youngster who still has his puppy head on!  Correct neck & shoulders, still has his old jacket on but his new coat is coming through, lovely topline & tailset, he is balanced with good muscletone but oh what a handful for his owner, when he settles, nothing should stop him. Today beaten by his brother, I reckon these two will have many a battle in the future.

Graduate Dog & Special Working Dog
1st – Belatarr Sculptor

Not quite the head I was looking for but his overall balance & free movement took the class, good coloured & correct shaped eye, good earset & carriage, in lovely coat & condition, he is well muscled with the correct hindquarters, topline & tailset, good neck & strong forequarters, steady up & back but excellent head carriage & tailset carriage in profile.

1st – Belatarr Hercules

Very balanced dog of a lovely type, excellent masculine head & expression, good neck & shoulders, good forechest, lovely topline & tailset, good depth of chest, in excellent coat & condition with a well muscled hindquarters, he is quality, he kept a strong topline set up & moving & his profile movement was a joy to see, showed well to win a good class.”

No wonder I wrote nice type, it is yet another littermate to the JD 1 & 2! Feminine head & expression with a lovely eye, good neck & shoulders, lovely topline & tailset, she is balanced of a good size & outline, nice depth of chest, moved soundly on well boned legs & feet, well muscled hindquarters, excellent coat of the correct texture.

Open Bitch
1st – Belatarr Mahalia Jackson ShCM

I make no secret of the fact that I have liked this bitch before. This is the third time I judged her, first time she wasn’t ready, second time she was the best bitch but boy look at her now!  Now the finished package and am very surprised that she is still wanting her third CC. So very feminine in outline & outlook, such a pretty head & expression, I love her type, she is balanced & quality & is everything I want in a Hungarian Wirehaired bitch. She moved so true on well boned legs & feet, excellent neck & shoulders, strong topline & well set tail, good depth of chest, moved with ease & style covering the ground with an excellent head carriage & tailset, the bonus is that she has an excellent coat of the correct harshness & a beard, not an overlarge one, as I am know to prefer less, but just enough for perfection, her muscletone just gleamed on a sunny day, even though we were inside, when the sun caught her going round in profile, it completed the picture. Thrilled to give her the CC & BIS

Pam Blay

Absolutely thrilled for Vivien, Marie, Jenny & David and particularly Irene for Billie’s 2nd CC – Billie is also the only dog ever to have twice won Best in Show at the HWVA Champ Show!

Thank you so very much to judge Pam Blay for thinking so highly of the Belatarr clan – it means the world to us – these results are all I could ever have wished for, and make me so proud of everyone’s achievements – more pics to follow!
