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!

Billie’s Windsor win.

I was thrilled to witness Sh CH Belatarr Mahalia Jackson Sh CM win her 6th CC, and her second of 2017, at the Windsor Championship under Judge Chris Bexon this last week. This win means that Billie also becomes only the second ever HWV bitch to win more than 5 Challenge Certificates – a sensational achievement!

Windsor Brace Win.

Jenny with Charlie & Hercules winning the Dog World Gundog Brace Stakes class (including a decent cash prize!) at Windsor Championship today from a quality line up of entries drawn from across the gundog entries at the show.

Charlie & Herc Brace win Windsor 2016

This is their 5th Champ show Brace win from the 5 shows at which they have entered the Brace class – amazingly they have never been beaten in Championship brace classes, certainly a first for the breed and extremely rare in any other breed too!

Charlie Parker makes breed history at Windsor.

We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to report that Belatarr Charlie Parker earned his stud book number by being awarded 1st Limit Dog and then taking the Reserve Dog Challenge Certificate at the Windsor Championship show today, under judge Chris Atkinson.

This means that all 4 show dogs from Phoenix & Mingus’ first litter have now earned their SB numbers, the first and only set of siblings in the breed ever to have achieved this important accolade. Charlie will now join his younger brother (and housemate!) Belatarr Hercules in the Kennel Club registry and, as a result, is also now qualified for Crufts for life.

Many congratulations to Jenny & David on scoring this great achievement for both of their lovely boys within the last few months.

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

The bitch line-up just as Billie was awarded 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.
