1960 American Champion
Our first stud dog, a real Belgian, very excellently made with a superb temperament. Sire of many lovely dogs, some champions, although only a few were shown. Very square, lots of coat, dark eye, small ear, full dentition with a scissors bite. BSD Hndbk Vol1 p114
The Ganymede Saga
We then decided on two older females from Marge Turnquist. Marge was kind enough to finish Lola's title. Her sister Lana, also a beautiful dog, became ill and could not complete her title. She had seven or eight points and one major. Then we got a pup (that was six weeks old) from Rudy Robinson out of another Geier Tal dog. The two from Marge were Ch Lola and Lana of Geier Tal. The pup was Ch Alardo Candide. He and Lola were big winners at that time.
Lola had one litter - sired by Alardo (Lad).
We went to visit Marge and went to the Specialty. I never saw such beautiful dogs. Marge's Lisa [Liza] del Pirata Nero was really magnificent. I will say here it was Marge Turnquist who was my mentor and teacher. She used to tell me, "No shoulder, no Belgian!". I have always been of the opinion with no shoulder our beautiful Belgians could not work, and that is what they were bred for! Temperament and structure must be foremost. So it is with this in mind, I say, "Thank you, Marge!".
