    If your d'uccle is just black and white, it is not a mille fleur as the mille fleur color pattern Mille fleur literally means "thousand flowers" and is so named due to all of the mixed colors in the pattern. Louzuufy gave a good link showing the mille fleur color pattern and here is another pic below.
