With his rich red coloring, excellent movement and construction, he had many admirers. As a stud dog, he has been one of the biggest influences, appearing in the pedigrees of the top Tervueren throughout the UK.

The story of how we acquired and imported Brandy is principally one of luck and coincidence. The only credit we can claim is that we were able to recognise an opportunity when it presented itself and to take advantage of it. In the process, we met some formidable problems, including a row with the Kennel Club over registrationa and Brandy's long illness following quarantine.

The end of an era! 'Brandy' moulded many of the present day Belgians in the UK. A great ambassador, we are proud to have owned him - and proud of the fact that he figures in many of your pedigrees. (Eric & Mary Brownbill) 1993 YB p288

To mention just 3 BSDs that I have had high regard for is very difficult as there have been so many. As a show dog I must mention Ch Vallivue Bon Chance who, as everyone knows, has exceeded all that any other Belgian has achieved. I would like to mention stud dogs that have made their mark both in the showring and as producers. My first choice would be Fr Ch Sam de la Douce Plaine. A wonderful show dog, a fabulous producer, and most important, a superb temperament. His name appears in the pedigrees of so many Champions worldwide. Ch Bandol de la Pouroffe at Snowbourn was a great show dog, with a record unequalled as a producer in this country. My joint third choice would have to be my own Ch Norrevang Bacchus. A great ambassador for the grey colour, the sweetest of temperaments, a producer of several top winners, but hates the show ring and his son Ch Bergerac Loves Kills a beautiful show dog with 5 Champion daughters.
