Mid Western Gundog Wins.

Jenny had some great results with her Belatarr boys at the Mid Western Gundog Show at the Three Counties Showground on 17th Feb. The breed was judged by Judge Peter Watson (Oakswarren) and he awarded Belatarr Jupiter (Luka) 1st in Post Graduate with his big brother Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules winning 1st in Open and Best of Breed.

Best in Show was then judged by Frank Kane and Herc was shortlisted from the huge selection of 33 Gundog BOB winners. Meanwhile, Belatarr Charlie Parker ShCM was entered into AV Veteran which was split into two big classes (with 14 dogs in his class) also under Frank Kane. He performed beautifully and won through to face the winner of the second veteran class. Again he won the showdown and, as a result, was crowned Best Veteran in Show:

Many congratulations to Jen & Charlie on an excellent win and the very fine accompanying trophy & rosette too.

Belatarr wins: *TOP HWV KENNEL*TOP STUD DOG*TOP BROOD BITCH*

The incredible ending to the 2018 show year secured us sufficient points to be awarded the OurDogs UK’s Top Breeder/Kennel for 2018.

This is the THIRD time that we have been privileged to win this incredibly prestigious award, having also achieved the win for 2014 and 2016. In so doing Belatarr becomes the first HWV kennel ever to be named Top UK Breeder for a third time.

At the same time our boy, Mingus, (Morehay Lars of Belatarr ShCM) was awarded Top HWV Stud Dog (OurDogs), this being the third time that Mingus has achieved this award, following similar wins in 2014 and 2016. Given that he has only ever sired two litters, this is a truly astonishing achievement and one unmatched by any other HWV dog.

Last, but most definitely not least, our Tarndair Phoenix of Belatarr was awarded Top HWV Brood Bitch, also for the third time, and again, this is a record unmatched by another HWV.

Having tragically lost Phoenix earlier in 2018 this last award was particularly poignant and emotional and serves as an incredible tribute to our beautiful girl and the legacy that she left us all.

None of these wins would have been even remotely possible without the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm of Irene and Jenny whose combined total of 8 Challenge Certificates for 2018 secured Belatarr the necessary points for all of the awards. A heartfelt thank you to you both 🙂

Phoenix, in her watery element.

Richmond Championship Show.

Richmond Championship Show has always been a special show for Belatarr and we have enjoyed some memorable wins here over the past few years. 2018 proved to be no exception and the Belatarr boys enjoyed a superb morning under the UK’s most highly qualified Show Judge, Zena Thorne-Andrews, with Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules winning Best Dog and collecting his first CC of the year, and his4th CC in total:

Lovely to go over, his front is well under the body and supporting his weight properly. Maybe a little thick in back skull. Nicely set ears, sound legs and thick feet, Excellent body and quarters, he travels over the ground smoothly and easily.

With his brother, Belatarr Charlie Parker ShCM close on his heels as he is awarded his 7th Reserve Dog CC:

Res CC. I did like his quality head and outlook. Close up in all respects with moderate angulation & excellent coat. Just has a tendency to rise a little too much over rump. His construction is as above (i.e. as in his brother), very good indeed.

National Gundog Championship

What was an extremely hot and sunny day at this year’s National Gundog Championship proved also to be a memorable one for Belatarr. Presided over by Breed specialist judge Christine Morgan, young sisters Iris (Belatarr Venus) and Dora (Belatarr Pandora) met in the ring for only the second time, with Dora joining her sister today in qualifying for Crufts, whilst their brother Luka (Belatarr Jupiter) represented their litter in Junior Dog.

Belatarr Pandora stacked in the ring.

The highlight of the day, though, was Billie (Sh Ch Belatarr Mahalia Jackson ShCM) who won Best Bitch and was so awarded her third CC of the year and her 9th overall – an amazing achievement, matched by only 1 other bitch and two dogs in HWV breed history. We continue to be thrilled and so proud of her achievements – massive congratulations to Irene on this latest milestone for the record-breaking girl from our very first litter!

SH CH BELATARR MAHALIA JACKSON SHCM (MS I E COLLIER) I judged this lovely girl some years ago when there was only one CC on offer. On that occasion she was Best Bitch but had to settle for the Res CC as the dog was BOB. The next time I judged her was indoors when I felt that she was not as animated as she could have been. I have always thought that she was an outdoor girl and today she proved it, powering round the ring with reach and drive and holding her head high with a topline that was straight and true and perfect tail carriage. She is so feminine and noble in appearance yet has power and strength, a wonderfully balanced outline, depth, ample spring of rib and wide well muscled quarters. She is so true in front and from behind you can see the flair over her hips giving perfect balance to her ribcage. Her head is beautiful and her eyes tell you what a kind soul she is. And of course, she has an excellent wire coat and facial furnishings. It was my absolute pleasure to give her the CC at last!”
