Her pedigree is a perfect mix of the best European and English bloodlines. Maple's grandmother is my beloved "Reema", Int & IT FT Ch. Think Twice Go Get It, best AV field trial dog in Italy for the 2017/2018 trialling season, Winner of the Italian Championship in 2017, first time ever for a Golden Retriever, after the best placement for the breed thanks to "Diesel", father of "Maple", some years earlier, becoming second.
In the maternal line we have Flint (Int FT Ch. Birdsgreen Simply Flint), in my opinion one of the best Golden Retrievers of all time, son of Volvo (GB FT Ch. Kessgold Volvo), also a fantastic dog, who has produced a lot of excellent progeny. In the paternal line, "Maple" is the direct daughter of my beloved and once in a lifetime dog "Diesel", one of the most successful Golden ever in the European field trial world, Vice ICC 2014 Winner - Int & IT FT Ch. The Road Runner.
"Maple" started her career very young, at less than 2 years of age. At her very first trial ever (GRC 14 dogs Novice breed stake, at Teffont Magna, Wiltshire, UK) she made me happy gaining a 3rd place and Guns’ Choice and winner of The Weyland Trophy ( to the best puppy in the awards, under two yrs old on the day if the trial). Only few days later, at her second trial (Eastern Counties Golden Retriever Club Novice breed stake - 16 dogs at The Ampton Shoot, Great Livermere, UK) she took the 1st place and was awarded gun’s choice again! Not even 2 years old she has been very consistent.
"Maple" has also proved to be an excellent breeding bitch. She's the mpther of "Keen" Think Twice Urban Cowboy, and "Voodoo" Think Twice Voodoo, two young Golden who have already won our hearts. Since spring 2022, "Maple" has been living in the USA and we are sure that her great genetic heritage will be able to enrich these new lines.
