Rudy's efforts on behalf of the Belgian Sheepdog have also been recognized by the Royal Groenendael Club of Belgium, which extended an honorary life membership to him in May of 1953. Asked which of all his dogs was his favorite, he promptly replies, "Candide's Mark of Zorro". Zorro was brought up in the house by his dam, Tangerine Candide, and she taught him all of the "house rules". Rudy describes Zorro thus, "He had a mind, that dog did. I mean, he had an unusual mind. And I taught him to spell and to count - Boy, was he a companion."
