Dam:  CH Andvell Sara Borgia     "Sara"

Born June 24, 1985

White Female with cream spots          AKC registration HD282817

  Breeder:  Laura Hyatt (Meyta).     Owner:   Stephanie Wittenberg (Regency)

Missy was from the first litter bred by Laura Hyatt.  The sire "Tav" had won a lot in Canada.  Tav  won BOB from the open class over 138 borzoi at the 1983 MBC specialty, breeder owner handled by Linda Arscott.  The dam "Sara" was one of 2 champions from a litter bred by Patricia Smith (Andvell).  Sara was owned and shown by Laura Hyatt, and lived to over 12 years.  Among Missy's littermates were CH Meyta's Sabaka and Meyta's Tiffany (dam of CH Meyta Dostoyevski ROMX and CH Meyta's Donya ROMX), and Meyta Vicar of Andvell.

When Missy was registered, her breeder's kennel name was mis-spelled as Metta, rather than Meyta.   Missy was owned and shown by Stephanie Wittenberg.  In 1989, Stephanie decided she wanted to breed Missy to the Artley's Am/Can CH Tahoe's  Tom Terrific SC FCH LCM, but felt she didn't have the time to whelp the litter.  So it was our good luck, that Missy was leased to us, for the Tahoe "M" litter.  Since we already had a Missy living in our house (Tom's sister), we called her Kissy-Missy, because she loved to give people gentle little kisses.  Kissy-Missy produced 8 puppies for us, and took excellent care of them.  Her litter was the easiest litter to raise, and the most fun.  We called them the "Mobettes".   7 of this litter finished.   Even though Ana was sold to a companion home, she could have been finished also. 

Stephanie liked this litter so much, that she repeated the breeding to Tom in 1991, with the help of her friend and neighbor Robin Bean.  5 of the 6 puppies were show quality.  Marci and Summer were pointed, and probably could have been finished, if their owners had spent more time showing them.  Chelsea was the pick of the litter, and went to our good friend Carole Pawlasek, who unfortunately was not able to get Chelsea to shows.  

Kissy-Missy was one of the most perfect Borzoi, I have ever seen.  She excelled as a producer, passing on her balance, well-laid back shoulder, full dentition, scissors bite, small high-set ears, deep well-sprung ribs, as well as her great outgoing, funny personality.   She has many descendents from her children Murphy, Roy and Morgan.
