Luka wins his 2nd CC.

Fabulous results from the Richmond Championship show this afternoon, where Lyra’s son, young Belatarr Jupiter (Luka) was awarded Best Dog & his second Challenge Certificate along with Best of Breed, also for the second time, following the same result in June at Windsor Championship.

Judge Jeff Horswell then also awarded Luka’s uncle, Belatarr Charlie Parker ShCM, the Reserve Dog CC along with Vest Veteran in Breed & Luka’s Show Champion Uncle Belatarr Hercules 1st in Open Dog too.

Many congratulations to Jenny & David on another great day with their boys – we are super proud and excited today!

Puppies: week 7

After enduring endless weeks of rain, high winds and unseasonably cold temperatures, conditions have at last returned to more normal for August and the puppies have finally been able to get out onto the grass, making life more interesting for them and much easier for us. Now fully weaned and (most, at least) with a full set of puppy teeth, they are readily tucking into their raw diet interspersed with goat’s milk and will soon be heading off to their exciting new lives in their loving new homes, so this coming week will be their final one with the whole litter together.

Puppies: week 6

Time is flying by and the puppies are looking very grown-up now, fully weaned from mum and getting stronger and more boisterous by the day. Once again, the often terrible weather has meant that they are indoors more than outdoors, but they certainly make the most of it when the sun does make an appearance.

Puppies: week 4

Another huge week for the youngsters as their eyesight finally comes fully online allowing them to play and chew their way excitedly around their ever-expanding worlds.

Semi-decent weather has allowed them to be outside in their run for at least a few hours every day of this past week, taking in the sunshine, rain, winds and all points in between. Just like all Belatarr generations before them they also immediately gravitated towards their mini den for snoozy puppy pile-ups:

They are now well on their way towards being weaned and have quickly become experts at eating solid food from their Weenafeeder in-between visits form Mum. This is also the most significant change in their head shape, as muzzles elongate, eyes widen and skulls develop to give them fully formed puppy heads. Here they all are, outside in the dappled sunshine this morning:

Puppies: week 3

All change for the pups this week as eyes opened fully and full vision slowly came on-line, accompanied by better mobility – although 4 to 5 steps followed by a quick tumble is still very much the order of the day.

All up and motoring about.

 

Mum checks that everything is in order.

Head and muzzle shapes became much more pronounced too, although next week will see an even more dramatic evolution in their heads, whilst coats are also developing rapidly now.

Mr Red, just nodding off.

But it’s very much the case that 90-95% of their time is still spent snoozing.

Sister snuggles.

LKA Completes Sensational Show Year for Belatarr!

Held on Dec 16th, LKA was the final Championship show of the year and proved to be one of the most memorable that we’ve ever attended. Presided over by judge Eileen Hughes, Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules was named Best Dog and won his 2nd CC of 2018, his 5th in total, moving him into 3rd place in the list of all-time highest-awarded HWV males!

A lovely masculine dog who moved effortlessly round the ring with reach and drive due to well-laid shoulders and good rear angulation. A harsh coat finished the picture. Correct length in body with a firm topline. Typical masculine head and tight feet. A well deserved CC.

Eileen Hughes

A fabulous result and one with which we would have been thrilled to complete what has been an amazing show year, but the bitch classes brought another thrill as Billie, Sh Ch Belatarr Mahalia Jackson ShCM, was awarded Best Bitch, collecting an astonishing 6th CC of the year and taking her total tally of Challenge Certificates to 12, making her the all-time 2nd highest awarded HWV Bitch (by a very considerable margin.)

 “A beautiful mature bitch who moves so fluidly with lots of reach and drive.Attractive feminine head, correct harsh coat, good length and depth of body, an excellent example of the breed. CC & BOB.

Eileen Hughes

Brother and sister then went head to head for Best of Breed and Billie emerged victorious, earning the privilege of representing the breed in the Gundog Group Challenge – what a day!

Best Bitch and Best Dog, Billie and Herc, with very proud Dad Tim!

Midland Counties Championship.

Another superb Champ show outing for Belatarr under breed specialist Doreen Smillie-Gray at Midland Counties saw Belatarr North by Northwest awarded 1st place from a large Limit Dog class:

Best moving dog in this class, good head with a kind expression, very good topline which he holds on the move, good depth of rib. Lovely angulation and good clean front. Coat is good. Well muscled and a happy boy.

Doreen Smillie-Gray

With his big brother Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules picking up the Reserve Dog CC:

Older boy than my winner but could not be denied the RCC. He moves out with style and power, good muscle and depth, correct angulation and lovely head and expression. Another quality dog.

Doreen Smillie-Gray

and their older sister, Sh Ch Belatarr Mahalia Jackson Sh CM awarded Best Bitch, winning her 5th CC of the year and an incredible 11th in total:

Coming up to 7 years old and I have never seen her look so good. She looks stunning on the stand, very good coat. Good depth of rib and excellent angulation. Like my Dog CC is made correct so moves correctly with power and style.
