 2007-2009 - "V  llee"
CH Bellatak My Funny Valentine ROM
Vallee made her debut as a "Special" with David Murray as her handler, at the Long Beach, CA shows June 22, 2007.  She won BOB all three days, and was awarded a Group 2 on the 3rd day at the Toy Breeders Specialty.  David and Vallee make a team to be watched!  Vallee finished 2007 as the #2 All Breed Havanese.  Quite a feat considering she had only been out as a special for 5 months!  She won the HCA 2007 Regional and National specialty held in Denver, CO, she has won numerous group placements, an AOE (Award of Excellance) at the 2007 Eukanuba in Long Beach, CA as well as she won an AOM (Award of Merit) at the 2008 Westminster in New York, NY.   

Vallee made history once again, by being awarded BISS again at the 2008 HCA National Speicalty in Richmond, VA.  No other Havanese has ever won more then once, but Vallee has won twice and in consecutive years too!  Thank you Judge Dennis McCoy for choosing Vallee as your Best In Specialty Show winner!
Vallee finished 2008 as the #2 Havanese in both All Breed and Breed rankings in the U.S. and the #1 All Breed Female Havanese!!!

2009 started off well for Vallee in Palm Springs, CA the first weekend in January.  In February she won the breed at the distinguished Progressive Dog show in NY, NY and then the following Tuesday was awarded Best of Opposite Sex at the 2009 Westminster KC show February 10, 2009.  Vallee continues to prove in 2009 she is what a Havanese should be!  Thank you to all the distinguished AKC judges that have felt the same way!  At the 2009 HCA Regional Specialty in August held in Chicago, IL, Vallee was awared Best of Breed.  Thank you Judge Candance Mogavero for choosing Vallee as the best Havanese that day from a very nice lineup of Havanese.  Vallee has remained to be the Havanese to beat in 2009.  In December 2009, at the AKC Eukanuba National Championship held in Long Beach, CA, Vallee was awarded Best of Breed.  Thank you Judge Sari Brewster Tietjen for choosing our awesome girl, Vallee.  

Vallee retired her Specials career after her Best of Breed win at the 2009 Eukanuba.  What a fantastic way to retire!  Vallee is the #1 All Breed Havanese for 2009 and #15 in the Toy Group.  Vallee broke some breed records as well as making new breed records.  Vallee is now home with us and we are thrilled she is.

2010-2012 - "Dreamer"
GCH Bellatak McDreamy
Dreamer made his debut as a special in Palm Springs in January 2010.  He started off with a bang for sure.  He won the Toy Specialty and then went on to win a Group 4 that first weekend out.   Dreamer was awarded his first All Breed BIS on May 8, 2010.  Thank you Judge Robert Slay.  On 11/21/2010 Dreamer was awarded his second All Breed BIS, thank you Dr. Klaus Anselm.  Dreamer had a fabulous year in 2010.  He finished the year as the 
#1 All Breed Havanese and the ONLY Havanese to be awarded BIS in 2010.  

Dreamer was very successful in 2011!  He won the 2011 Havanese National Specialty.  He was the #1 All Breed Havanese every month in 2011!  Dreamer ended 2011 by winning the 2011 AKC Eukanuba Championship Havanese Best of Breed!  That meant that Dreamer finished 2011 as the  #1 Havanese All Systems in 2011!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Dreamer!!!  We are so very proud of our special boy!  Dreamer has sired a couple litters of puppies and proving to be quite the stud dog as well!

In 2012 Dreamer continued his many successes in the ring.  He finished the year as the #1 All Breed Havanese for the 3rd year in a row!  He also broke many breed records, but the biggest honor of all is he is THE WINNINGEST HAVANESE EVER!!!!  Dreamer retired in December 2012 and is loving life on one of Jane's sofa's.
2013 half year - "Bogie"
GCH Bellatak Casablanca
Bogie made his debut as a special in March 2013.  He is the son of Dreamer and has big shoes to fill.  The "Bellatak Family" is proud of our new boy and we look forward to what the future in the show ring has in store.  After only 1 month, he has already won many beautiful ribbons!  Bogie had fun in the ring and did very well.  Bogie retired from the show ring in July 2013. He retired as the #9 Havanese in Breed points and #10 Havanese in All Breed points! Not too bad for a dog that was shown on a limited basis for less than half the year! I am very proud of Bogie as he represented Bellatak and the breed well. He is living his retirement days with a friend close by, so I look forward to being able to use him in my breeding program in the very near future!

August 2013-Present - ​"Max"
GCH Bellatak Vallee's Maximum Dream
Max made his debut as a Special in August 2013 at the 2013 National Specialty in Chicago, IL.  Max won Select Dog at the Regional Specialty at National and then was selectively shown the rest of 2013.  He finished the year in the top 10 Havanese and only being shown as a Special for 2 1/2 months!  Max is the best of both his mother and father, who happen to be the two top winningest Havanese ever!  His Dam is Vallee and his sire is Dreamer (see above).  While Max has some big paw prints to follow behind, he is up for the challenge and has already proven he is exactly what a Havanese should be!  We look forward to what the future will bring for Max in the ring.
Max finished 2014 as the #3 Havanese All Breed!  We are so proud of our Max!
​2015 Max finished the year as the #1 All Breed Havanese!!!!
