photos of author & historian Louis Vander Snickt
(1837 - 20Oct 1911)

Duc was owned by Gust. De Mulder,
Avenue d'Anvers in Molenbeek
he was a long hair black with a docked tail

Nicolas Rose traveled from the Chateau Groenendael to La Hulpe, to Mr. DeBeek (breeder and first owner of Petite) in a dog cart, accompanied by 2 or 3 dogs (and those pulling the cart, one would imagine). He bought Petite for 50 francs. Petite was born in 1889, and assumed purchased by Nicolas Rose in 1892.
Petite's sire was Marquis. He was owned by Mr. and Mr. Georges, father and son, who were custom agents guarding the roads (lots of smuggling, mostly of cigarettes from France at that time).
The father of Marquis was Duc of unknown origins. Duc guarded sheep and was owned by M. De Mulder, a butcher.
The dam of Marquis was black with a full tail.
Petite had been bred to her sire, Marquis, in 1891, producing "3 good puppies". One, named Baronne, was owned by Mr. Horst, who showed her without success. "She is not to be confused with Baronne, born May 1, 1893 by Picard d'Uccle x Petite." states the Vander Snickt article. Another Marquis x Petite offspring was named Bebette, also with black long hair. The third Mr. Vander Snickt did not know.........
(Chasse et Peche article dated April 10, 1898, written by Louis Vander Snickt)

Louis Vander Snickt was the chief editor of the weekly magazine "Chasse et Pêche". He was the former manager of the zoological gardens of Ghent and Dusseldorf. He had ample experience in breeding and was an excellent observer. The articles he published and illustrated in "Chasse et Pêche" are very instructive and pleasant to read. Several volumes would not be enough wrote Louis Huyghebaert later, to enumerate the services rendered to breeding by this untiring and alert spirit.
