Diane (Charles Danhieux)

Female Belgian Groenendael  3/23/1897 (deceased)
Color: black
Owner: Charles Danhieux
Breeder: Charles Danhieux
Sire: Duc de Groenendael
Dam: Miss (Charles Danhieux)

Mr Danhieux bred Miss to the black Duc de Groenendael, son of Picard d'Uccle and Petite, the foundation couple for the Groenendael variety of the Belgian Shepherd Dogs, and in 1897 two puppies were born who were to play a significant role in both Groenendael and Tervueren history. One offspring, Diane, a long haired black, remained with Mr Danhieux, and her descendants, resulting from litters with Picard d'Uccle and with his son, Pitt, are to be found in modern Groenendael and Tervueren genealogies. The other offspring, a charcoaled fawn long hair named Milsart, was sold to Mr F Cloetens of Tervueren, and played a predominant role in the early production of this variety. Hist of Terv p2

Mar 27, 1898 Chasse et Peche show critique by Prof Adolphe Reul:
Milsart, Terv, who had a hooked tail, but was charcoaled fawn and "had the air of Groenendael parents".
Prof. Reul didn't care for any of the "other than black' long hairs, concluding that the class "Was as defective as it was numerous".

A July 24, 1998 show critique of Milsart has him as "a perfect topline, but his tail is carried sideways". (Meanwhile his black littermate, Diane, was being rated down for a domed head and an indentation on her nose.) (translated)

Diane, Berger Belge of long black hair, of Mr. Danhieux of Tervueren, on October 13, 1899, had a litter by Pitt de Groenendael of Mr. Rademaekers. 5 females, 5 males.
