We were together with a large group of breeders, tervuerens and groenendael, and visited a lot of foreign shows together. Internet had not arrived yet so we were depending on exchanging information by phone or meetings at shows. We had such great times wit a lot of laughs and drinks😊

It’s a privillage to meet and see the quality in Belgians around the world. It makes me very happy to discover quality and meeting the owners. I love to judge puppies as they are our future and it is important they keep coming tot he shows.
