A Tribute To Kitch (UK/Bel/Ned/Int Champion Dalip Lord of the Rings)

 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.

My sincere condolences to Pat, Brian and Pam. Fortunately, I have never experienced the loss of a beloved friend and companion and I can only begin to imagine how you must feel. I never had the privilege of meeting "Kitch" but I am sure he was a great dog. My connection is that he was my Amber's great,great grandfather on her mothers side. Her mother is Bakabaks Silver boots whose father is Kardomas Rags to Riches - son of Dalip Lord of the Rings. Maybe some of his genes helped to make Amber so special! R.I.P.

A very special lad. I will remember him for his breed type, temperament and superb ring presence. Novices should look at his pictures and learn. A real privilege to have judged him in his prime.
Our thoughts are with you Pat, Pam and Brian.

Our thoughts are with Pat, Brian, and Pam, "Kitch" was a great statesman for the breed, i had the privilege of judging him as a pup and as a veteran. RIP Kitch

Trevor and Jaynes first litter of pups produced 2 lovely boys. Archie, who was their much loved show dog and my dog Rudi who was 15 in May. Rudi is still very healthy for his age and still enjoys his walks. What an honour it is to have CH.Dalip Lord of the Rings on his pedigree.

Not sure if I am doing this right but hear goes. Kitch dalip lord of the rings had a little boy his name is Wesley. Wesley is my dog and is 16 on Tuesday. Wondered if anyone could pass my number onto the owners. Wesley is an amazing dog but is getting old now would be lovely to be connected
