We are sorry to record the passing of Ann Davis’s famous Komondor ‘Kitten’, Hercegvaros Cica of Borgvaale and Loakespark, last Sunday after a short illness at the age of 13 1/2 years.
Kitten was retired from competition last January after her win in the Pedigree Petfoods Veteran Stakes finals.
She was bred in Princetown, New Jersey, USA by Mr Marion J. Levy, and originally imported by Mrs Pat Lanz, before ownership was transferred to Ann Davis. She was born on March 27, 1973 and released from quarantine just before Christmas 1973 and Kitten was shown at all levels of competition in England, Scotland and Wales. Last year was her forth time of competing in the Pedigree Chum Veterans Finals. Her final show appearance was the Hungarian Komondor Club’s Show on October 20, 1985, when she took BIS from the veteran class. Her last Championship BOB was at City of Birmingham in 1984, at 11 1/2 years old.
