As to failures, hopefully we all learn by our failures. I remember breeding an all male litter none of which were ever entire. This was in the early days and I was quite ready to give up until a friend in another breed who understood genetics explained that I could learn alot from this litter regarding incompatibility of certain bloodlines.
For my third Belgian choice for which I have a high regard, I allow myself my personal preference in Ch Leircote Amethyst. I always thought her exquisite for type though probably before her time, also well constructed she won under specialist and all rounders alike and she was very feminine. Credit must go to her owner, Barbara Dowse, as she was a shy puppy which I had eliminated from my selection when looking for a show prospect, despite her quality. Barbara saw her potential and persuaded me to let her take her as she felt she could "bring her out" which she did most successfully. Unlike my first two choices she never bred, this was probably because she was closely related to the all male litter I mentioned previously being an earlier litter from the same dam, the sires being firstly a son then his father.
