Her pedigree is a perfect mix of the best European bloodlines, from the Scandinavian countries to England. Maple's grandmother is my beloved Reema, Int FT Ch & 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, uncle of Reema, some years earlier, becoming second. Reema is the mother of the first Golden Retriever ever bred in the Continent to became GB FT Champion. THINK TWICE ZERO TO HERO, DOM at the 2019 IGL Retriever Championship, running as the youngest in the card. In the maternal line we also have Flint (Int FT Ch. Birdsgreen Simply Flint), in my opinion one of the best Golden Retrievers of all time, son of Volvo (UK 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 ICC2014Winner - Int FT Ch & It Ft Ch. THE ROAD RUNNER.

THINK TWICE BEYOND THE SHADOW OF DOUBT, 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) 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) she took 1st place! Also awarded gun’s choice again! Not even 2 years old she has been very consistent.
