Filoza, was a silver grey, who very possibly could have had the genetic formula, 'ayay chch' or 'ayat'. Filoza's father, the black stud, Tom du Progres, most certainly carried the grey 'ch' gene. When Tom was bred to his half sister, the black bitch, Miss Elda, he produced the grey Filoza. And, when Tom was in turn bred to his grey daughter (Filoza), on May 25, 1933 he produced 3 blacks (#57783-57785) and 3 silver greys registered in the "Autre que noir ou fauve' category (#57786-57788). Genetically, in order to produce these results, Tom had to carry both the 'ch' gene, and either the fawn 'ay' gene or the recessive black 'at' gene. BBA pix

Miss Elda, Filoza's mother and Tom's half sister, also had to be carrying the grey gene. Her father, Cyclone du Progres, was also the father of Tom. Moreover, Tom was Miss Elda's maternal grandfather. As we shall see, it is quite possible that Miss Elda could have received her grey gene from either Tom or Cyclone. Tom's mother, Tempete, was also the mother of Cyclone who now becomes both Tom's father and half brother). Tempete's grandfather was Demon de l'Enfer, a famous black stud for his time. Demon also carried the grey gene, since he sired the beautiful, grey bitch Creole. BBA px

Several Groenendael have produced either grey or fawn offspring in the breed's history. Some of the most important are: Pitou des Barricades, Kiss Kisch, Hedax, Tom du Progres, Boby, Djipso, Miss Elda, Demon de l'Enfer, Duc LOSH 7048 and Diane LOSH 7584. BBA p128

note: When bred in 1935 to Miss Elda, Yogho produced Jourdain LOSH 72887, who was registered as a Groenendael, but was shown and won its CAC's in the Tervuren category. BBA p210
