The next dog we were able to purchase was a male of de la Baraque de Planches type, with exceptional working qualities. I had seen Ch York du Boscaille whom Daniele Daugherty of Crocs-Blancs had imported into the US and was pleased with many of his qualities, especially those traits he passed on to his progeny. Mme Franck of Domaine Ponti had purchased Zorka du Clos St Antoine, a daughter of York, bred in Europe. Zorka had been bred to Ubac du Parc de l'Hay, a son of RE Olof du Leman. Mme Franck had kept one male out of the litter, Boegna du Domaine Ponti, who was to become better known as Bogey. Bogey was a small dog (24in) of excellent type. His movement was especially supple and he had a lovely head with high set ears. His coat was harsh, thick, straight and blue-black. In every way he was the unadulterated working shepherd of Belgium. He was a kennel dog and eleven months old when we purchased him but his temperament was excellent. We took him directly from his kennel on a trip through France and Italy to visit kennels and to vacation. Bogey was shown as a young male in Belgium and managed to amass enough points to make the top ten males in 1978. He broke his leg in 1979 which kept him out of competition for nearly a year but was selected by the Royal Groenendael Club for beauty and character, one of the two dogs to receive an excellent at the selection in 1979.
"Bogey" was one of the top ten males in Belgium in 1978. This is the photo (unavailable) of him that was used to typify the breed in the Canadian Kennel Club Book of Dogs. Bogey has produced well bred to both European and American bitches. He is prepotent even in his grandchildren.
