It is with great sadness I have to report the loss of the wonderful , UK/Bel/Ned/Int Champion Dalip Lord of the Rings just short of his 17th birthday. Kitch was owned jointly by sisters Pat Hall & Pam Morton, though shown by Pam he lived and was very much loved by Pat and husband Brian. He took his first CC '97 and went onto amass an incredible 32 CCs, 3 Group 1s, 1 Group 2 and 2 Group 3 Group 4 in Belgium. This made him the second top winning Bedlington in history, a marvellous achievement.
To add to this Kitch was a very much loved pet and companion with a unique character. Not only enjoying his travel to shows over the water but his holidays with Pat and Brian once retired from the ring. Never widely used at stud Trevor and I feel more than privileged that he was the sire to our first bedlington litter.
He will be very much missed and we extend our sympathy to Pat, Brian and Pam.
Trevor & Jane.
There will be a tribute in Dog World this week.
Thank you Trevor and Jane, sorry to read this sad news but he will be remembered by everyone who knew him here and overseas, a fantastic dog whose achievements will go down in bedlington history.
