At that time, that is in the 70's, my uncle Edouard Lambert had the Vallee d'Erdre et Donneau kennel. Kept too busy with the breeding of his herd of cattle - which were renowned - he did not have enough time to devote to the breeding of his Tervuerens. I therfore joined forces with him and carried out all of the matings of the kennel from 1976 to 1984. The first Tervueren bitch was Idole de la Foret d'Ardennes average in quality but with a marvellous character and descended from a combination of old Tervueren and Groenendael lines from Hauts de Bievre, Clos St Jacques, Sang Bleu and Cledeville, with the grandsire Florin du Colombophile providing an original element. The mating between Jerry II du Clos Cher and Idole de la Foret d'Ardennes was carried out four times and produced Musc - a coppery red dog of great Character, Nicky - a red of profuse coat, Orphee - a very typical grey and Romance - a tall well built bitch. Orphee mated to Nans du Haut Pitou (Jerry II x Jitane du Clos du Cher, granddaughter of Rosette du Clos St Jacques and Sangha des Trois Fleuves) produced the very beautiful Roulis and the compact Relfy, who were therefore closely linebred to Jerry and especially Rosette. I thus created the foundation of my kennel with Romance and Relfy who were both typical and the 'old lines', but who provided very good outcrosses for the modern bloodlines - such outcrosses always being very necessary for the breed. In 1984 I decided to create my own kennel with my wife Martine (in 1989 my brother Thierry also became part of our kennel).
