John Jacob Astor and Kitty

Two Airedales were among the handful of dogs lost on the Titanic. One, named Kitty, belonged to Colonel John Jacob Astor IV, a real-estate mogul worth $100 million at the time. Astor, 46, had recently consternated society by marrying 18-year-old Madeleine Force, who was not only younger than his son but also five months pregnant.The second Airedale lost on the Titanic belonged to William E. Carter of Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, who also owned the Renault in which Jack and Rose encamped for their Titanic tryst in the movie. Carter, his wife and two children survived the disaster.
