November 2019: The Miracle Litter
On October 2, 2019, artificial insemination was performed on Kiki, bred by Kimberley Roberson. The semen used was collected approximately 20 years ago from my first Terv, Hogan (Winjammers Right Face), bred by Pat Morgan (deceased). This breeding is literally reaching back into time by two decades, because, as all breeds do, Belgian Tervuren have changed slightly over that time. Of the utmost importance is that the sire of this breeding goes back to Tervuren Foundation Stock. The breeding implications and potential of these puppies are profound.
Hogan was a beautiful, large, gentle, and tremendously brilliant dog; he stood slightly over 25 inches at the shoulder. His working drive was phenomenal, and during his life he learned to herd sheep, do obedience, play flyball, perform agility, swim, and he passed at age 16. This breeding for me is less about sentiment than it is about getting his genes back into the pool. Owners who receive his puppies will be encouraged to breed them. Every puppy comes with a book covering a wide variety of topics.
Kiki (Que Sera Sera Roberson) was bred by Kimberly Roberson, and AKC Breeder of Merit who has been breeding since 1976. Kiki's sire was Aramis, who was in every way as magnificent, intelligent, and truly special as Hogan; they were in the same class of dog. Kiki is focused, extremely intelligent, has a high desire to please, and is in every way a healthy, lively Tervuren with beautiful structure and temperament. I expect the puppies from this litter to be excellent and loving family dogs. Although a Tervuren is just as happy lounging around unless you want them to do something with you, they will only be sold to homes who consider their dog to be a family member, not a "pet". It MUST be a part of your life, and should accompany you whenever possible. Ideally, this is what I'm looking for in an owner:
I am a retired veterinarian who has owned dogs for over 30 years, and Belgian Tervuren for over 20 years. This litter is our first litter. If you have any questions, or would like more information please contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
