During her sparse career as a Special, Penny amassed 137 Bests of Breed, 5 Group Wins, and an additional 36 Group Placements.  Upon returning to the ring after taking time off to have her 2005 litter, Penny won the 2006 KCA National Specialty Show, and her 7 month old daughter (Angel) went Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, and Best Bred by Exhibitor.  In 2006, Penny earned the #1 Ranking for the year in Breed while her daughter, Angel, earned the #1 Ranking in All Breed…A Kuvasz First & Only!  Additionally, in 2006, Penny earned an Award of Merit at the AKC/Eukanuba show while her daughter, Angel, was awarded Best of Breed!  Penny & Angel were also the only Multiple Group Winners for the breed that year.  Penny’s super-affectionate & playful nature and her contagious zest for fun made her a gal that everyone enjoyed being around.  She was still going strong at nearly 11 years old & earned her BN obedience title at 10 years & 10 months of age!   She will forever be dearly loved & appreciated for all she gave us – unparalleled contributions to the breed through her own accomplishments and those of her offspring.
