Maggie came to Canouan from Eunice Ward. She is predominantly Wardhill, Bosol and Bowswood lines, and as such compliments our Canouan lines. We are great believers in always having two dogs of the same age, so Maggie also came to be Pip's friend, and they have great fun together. Maggie came from one litter to another, and as such was rather thrown in at the deep end. She arrived at eight weeks when Poppet's Puppets were six weeks. The other puppies didn't worry, and nor did Poppet who just treated her as one of her own.
Maggie has had a good career in the show ring. She gained 5th in Special Junior Bitch at Crufts 2001, and won many Best Puppy in Breed Awards. She is also a useful member of the beating line, often finding game that other dogs have missed. However it is at motherhood that Maggie really shines. She is the mother of "The Team" and also of the "Maglettes". Maggie is a really good mum. She takes the greatest care of her puppies, and is genuinely sorry to see them go to their new homes.
