L'Historique du Berger Belge Georges van Ceulebroeck p349
This large dog aligned strength with elegance, although elegance was predominant. He had a very lovely long chiseled head, which he carried proudly. His back was a little long and his gait reflected this fault.
He domintaed his rivals and collected many CAC's. Bred to a number of females, few of his offspring were of his class.
A slightly macabre joke passed from mouth to mouth among the breeders, "Cut off the head of Kiss Kisch and put it on the body of Djil, and you will have the perfect dog". In a literal sense this puzzle was difficult to accomplish, but it almost was accomplished through the interbreeding of the lines of these two dogs. BBA p36
In 1923 the black stud Kiss Kisch bred to the black, Murphane de la Motellette, produced the brindle Bili de la Motellette, registered as a black, and the grey Jim de la Motellette, registered as a fawn. These are examples of some of the long-hair-other-than-black dogs registered with the LOSH. BBA p50
note: produced Terv when bred to various Groen bitches
