Belatarr at the Annual Awards round-up.

A belated, post-puppy post to celebrate what were, once again, some great Belatarr achievements at the two breed club annual awards.

The Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Association awards tabulate Championship Show results, whereas the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Club of Great Britain include both Championship and Open show results in their calculations.

This year’s HWVA Top Dog was Sh CH Belatarr Hercules who overtook the breed CC record holder to score this fantastic win and who receives the Arany Bowl as a result, whilst his brother, Belatarr Charlie Parker ShCM, was ranked the third placed dog of the year – a super double for the boys – and his older sister, Sh CH Belatarr Mahalia Jackson ShCM (Billie), was awarded second placed Bitch of the year for the second year running, having won it outright the previous year.

Meanwhile, over at the HWVCGB awards, the Belatarr boys occupied all of the top three spots for the year with THE HAUNSPERG TROPHY, awarded to the show male of the year, won by Belatarr North by Northwest, who very narrowly beat Hercules into second place with Charlie placed third – a fabulous clean sweep for the boys! Billie was named second-placed show female of the year for the second year running (having, once again, won this accolade outright the year before) and young North was also named second top show dog of the year overall.

Many congratulations to Jenny, David & Irene on their great and very well deserved wins for the 2016 season.

Django’s weekend.

A top weekend for young Django!

Django 18 months 1 reduced

Saturday saw him bag his 5th Best of Breed in a row, this time at the Exonian Open in Exeter, where he was also shortlisted for Best Gundog in the 17-strong Group under German Wirehaired Pointer specialist judge Jenny Fairhall.

Then the next day a 4AM start (which proved to be about 90 mins too early, given the total absence of any traffic!) saw us zip up/across to Newark for the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Club AGM. A rather lovely early morning walk along the misty river Trent (whilst waiting for everyone else to arrive, since we’d rolled up so very early…) was followed by the meeting and Annual Awards, and we were delighted when Django was announced as the top scoring HWV Show Puppy of 2012, which also won him the very splendid Krugerand Trophy, now soon to be emblazoned with his Belatarr name.
