In 1972 the club wanted to organize their first exposition of different purebred dogs of the 1st and 2nd groups and it was at that time that he became interested in long haired Belgian Shepherds, more specifically the " Groenendael". It was during this exposition that he had the occasion to meet Mr. G.
