Tosca du Bon Flair, was the only registered Tervuren in a litter with 6 registered Malinois. BBA pxxii
Tosca du Bon Flair entered the kennel as a stud fee from its Malinois Matelot. She was the pick of the litter.
She was a typical Tervuren bitch of medium size, with small ears and a strong coat of ideal color. She won some CAC's when the dog shows resumed in 1945. She remained undefeated until 1950 when she was retired from competition.
With Tjop de la Brigade and Tosca du Bon Flair, the Brigade kennel entirely dedicated itself to breeding Tervuren. BBA p49
The Malinois Brigade kennel of Mr Van den Eynde, registered its first long-hair-fawn litter in 1947.
Until the 1952-1953 LOSH, Brigade barely registered one long-hair-fawn litter per year. But in the 1952-1953 LOSH Brigade registered 5 long-hair-fawn litters - and then stopped all production! His last litter, the 'B' litter included the American import, Brigadier de la Brigade. BBA pxv
