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!

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.

Richmond & Darlington Championships: more wins for Billie.

The Richmond Championship Show proved to be another great day in the ring for Billie, Belatarr Mahalia Jackson ShCM, where judge Marion Waddell awarded her 1st Open Bitch and then Best of Breed (her second Champ Show BOB in a week) which allowed her to once again represent the breed alongside the 26 other Gundog BOB’s in the the Gundog Group:

The judges critique was:

Robustly built bitch with a strong frame which is constructed well, strong developed chest down to elbows, which are well tucked in, moderately broad skull with oval eye, strong in neck, well ribbed body reaching back to well developed thighs which showed in her driving ground covering gait.


A week later, and despite feeling distinctly under the weather, Billie managed to continue her fantastic form by winning her third Champ Show Open Bitch class in a row, this time at the Darlington Championship, where she was in a class comprised entirely of CC winners & Show Champions, under judge Gordon Haran:
