Owner's comments: Now retired from the show ring, Bandit was shown once as a puppy and not again until he had matured. From that point, he took the Winners Class every time except for a single Reserve. He was Best of Breed at the 1970 Midwest supported show and at the Belgian Sheepdog Club of Canada's 1969 National Specialty Show. He has two group placings, a Group IV in the US and a Group II in Canada. He has never been actively campaigned.
Bandit finished both his American and Canadian CD degrees in three straight shows each, taking one high in trial and finishing out of the ribbons only once. He has sired six litters and presently has a number of pointed offspring as well as one champion and several pointed grandchildren.

About this time, Mom was able to acquire an adult bitch from Dorothy Hollister, Dentelle du Val de Tonnere (Lace). Lace gave us a different line to incorporate with what we had, that being heavily line-bred on Dandy.
Our second litter was the breeding of Kriquette to Amez. It was the 'A' de Bonheur litter which produced two High in Trial winners; AKC Ch Aries Jed de Bonheur CDX, the first Tervuren owned by Martha Schubert of Windsong kennel, and Astral Ember de Bonheur CD, the introduction into the breed for the late breeder judge Kay Maves.
Then Mom decided to put Bonheur first and bred Champ to Lace to produce the Maves' Canadian specialty winning AKC/CKC Ch Bonheur's Bashful Bandit, AKC Ch Bonheur's Bea Myne, and Bonheur's Bobbins & Pins BAR (Bobbie).
