Belatarr Mahalia Jackson (Billie) is owned, handled & loved by Irene Collier.

Billie was Best Puppy in Breed at the 2012 South Wales Kennel Association Championship and, like her litter brothers, she also qualified for Crufts 2013.

2013 saw Billie really come into her stride. She started by taking 1st Junior Bitch at the 2013 HWVA Championship, qualifying her for Crufts 2014, and was then an excellent 2nd under Pam Blay at Bath Champ Show (her first ever Post-Graduate Class). At her next show she was awarded 1st Post Graduate Bitch (in her second ever PG class) and then went Reserve Best Bitch at Three Counties Championship and, 2 weeks later, won another big Post Graduate Class and went Reserve Best Bitch once again at Windsor Championship. She finished the year taking Best Bitch at the LKA Championship.

Billie stepped up another gear in 2014, winning the Bitch CC and then taking Best of Breed from a huge entry at the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Association Championship.

The following month she was awarded Best Bitch and BOB again at the Bath Championship Show and then took Best Bitch and the Reserve Best of Breed CC at Windsor.

August saw her gain another Reserve Bitch CC at National Gundog followed by Best Bitch & BOB at Bournemouth Championship. She also made breed history by becoming the third sibling from her litter to achieve a Show Certificate of Merit - a first for the breed.

Billie then made breed history again at the Boston Championship in Jan 2015 where she became the first and only HWV ever to win the Gundog Group at a general Championship show.

2016 proved to be an incredible year, with Billie starting by gaining her 2nd CC and becoming the first dog ever to twice be awarded BOB at the HWVA Championship.

This was swiftly followed by her 3rd and crowning CC under Chris Schofield at the National Gundog Championship. Next was another BOB at City of Birmingham Championship and then her 4th CC and 7th Champ Show BOB at Richmond.
