I saw my first Groenendael in the Summer of '67. It was at a general championship show and the owners had a male and female. I distinctly remember the bitch as being very elegant with excellent type by today's standard and a very long coat. Later I tried to find out who they were, but to no avail. It has been previously recorded in an early Year Book (1984) about my dream of a litter of Groenendaels behind a five bar gate and my subsequent purchase of Viroflay Contessa in 1968. Incidentally, the dream never manifested in real life, well not to date anyway. (Barbara Simpson) 1993 YB p228
