Belatarr Boys win at Mid-Western Gundog.

Many congratulations to Jenny & David for a fantastic collection of results with their Belatarr boys at this years’ Mid Westen Gundog Show. Jenny writes:

Belatarr Charlie Parker ShCM was 3rd in Veteran 7 to 9 years and then 1st in AV Open Dog or Bitch.
Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules was 1st HWV Open Dog HWV with Belatarr Jupiter (Luka) 2nd in that same class, His uncle Herc then went Best of Breed under breed specialist Tanya Pryer.
Next up, Charlie & Herc were 1st in the AV Brace Class and Luka was 1st in the huge Cancer Research In Dogs Open Stakes under Carole Coode, winning a lovely pair of bronze bookends
Herc then went on to take Best In Show 4 from a pretty much full gundog representation at the end of the day under judge Judith Carruthers.

Luka wins Best in Show!

David & Jenny achieved a really stunning win with Lyra’s son, Belatarr Jupiter (Luka) at the Bedford & District Canine Society this weekend. He won Best of Breed and then took Gundog Group 1 under judge Chris Hill, before being named Best in Show by judge Jane Lilley, collecting a rather fine trophy and set of rosettes along the way! Only the second time that a Belatarr has been awarded Best in Show, Luka also becomes one of the very, very few HWV’s to ever achieve this at al all-Group show in the UK. We are thrilled and proud in equal measure.

Big win For Belatarr Venus.

Lyra’s puppies have been enjoying some top results this year and another big day was had by young Belatarr Venus (Iris) who had two different shows at the same venue on 24th Aug. First came the North Riding Gundog Club where she was awarded 1st in Graduate and RBOB, then the main event came next at the North of England HPR Club Show where she took 1st in Post Graduate and went Best of Breed under judge Ashleigh Frost before going on to take Reserve Best in Show under judge Leslie Forfar.

Big congratulations to Andy and Alyson for their super day!

From an impressive line-up of BOBs, I shortlisted 4 for further consideration…. RBIS Forster’s Belatarr Venus. Hungarian Wire Haired Vizsla. A bitch with substance whilst remaining feminine. Head and expression typical of her breed. Correct reach of neck into well-laid shoulders. Big ribbed body. She stands on well-boned legs with good feet. Presented in hard condition and in good harsh wiry coat. Moved well with reach and drive.

Triple wins at Windsor.

A fabulous day for Jenny & David’s Belatarr boys at the Windsor Championship Show, where long-time breed specialist judge Rob McMaster awarded first places to Belatarr Charlie Parker ShCM (Veteran), Belatarr Jupiter (Post Graduate Dog) & Sh Ch Belatarr Hercules (Open Dog).

All three then went head to head amongst the other class winners in the line-up Best Dog, and it was Lyra’s son, young Belatarr Jupiter (Luka) who beat his two uncles to be awarded Best Dog alog with his very first Challenge Certificate, this coming after he picked up his first Reserve CC and earned his Kennel Club Stud Book Number just 2 months ago at the WELKS Championship. Uncle Hercules was then awarded the Reserve Dog CC, with Uncle Charlie completing the set as Best Veteran in Breed.

But even better was to come when Luka went on to be awarded his first Champ Show Best of Breed and the privilege of representing the breed in the Gundog Group. Luka has so far been unbeaten in his Champ show classes throughout the whole year and this was a thrilling new high for his show career. Huge congratulations to Jenny & David!

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.

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.

Whilst, two weeks later, Breed specialist Ed Casey was the judge at this year’s Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Association Open Show and he selected Billie, Sh Ch Belatarr Mahalia Jackson as his Best Bitch and Reserve Best in Show:

Upstanding Bitch of excellent type, like her head, pleasing eye colour and shape, good furnishings, strong neck, excellent front, straight forelegs, bone and feet.  Strong firm topline, well-developed ribs, good depth of chest.  A little long in loin perhaps, tail well set and carried.  Strong and well muscled quarters, well-angulated rear.  Excellent coat of pleasing texture.  Moved out freely in all directions.  BB & RBIS
