Scottish Triumph for Billie.

Huge congratulations to Irene and Billie – Sh Ch Belatarr Mahalia Jackson ShCM – who managed to win a 7th Challenge Certificate along with Best Of Breed under Judge Jeff Horswell at the Scottish Championship Show this last weekend. This win even further cements Billie’s position as the 2nd most highly awarded bitch in breed history and we couldn’t be more delighted 🙂

The judge’s critique was as follows:

Really lovely b. She has a fem head. Correct neck. Well laid shoulder. Upper arm is upright. Super body. Level topline. Good rear. V easy mover. Enough coat of correct texture. CC & BOB

Windsor Win

Yesterday’s Windsor Championship show brought another very memorable outing and another great win for Belatarr Mahalia Jackson (Billie), who, at the grand old age of 19 months, is becoming quite the star. She firstly won her big Post Graduate Bitch class before beating a star-studded array of top bitches to take another excellent Reserve Best Bitch award,  under judge Christine McDonald.

The judges critique read:

Lovely bitch, super shape, in harsh body coat. Super head, just right in neck, shoulders, bone and feet, well sprung ribs carried well back. Good topline, excellent hindquarters and very sound on the move. RBB

Meanwhile in an extremely competitive 10-strong Post Graduate Dog class Belatarr Dizzy Gillespie and Belatarr Charlie Parker scored a solid 3rd & 4th places, respectively. We’ve been trying to take an up-to-date ringside shot of Dizzy Gillespie (Gryphon) for the last few shows, invariably being defeated by the weather or timing, but this time we made sure to get a shot in the bag to show him as he now is, at 19 months of age and maturing very nicely:

Take 2.
