Can hardly believe that our Darling Maya is officially a veteran this week on 10th June. Queen of the May by Bannonbrig, to give her 'posh name' is from a 7th generation forward of our first Spinone Purdy and eight generations
from one of the first italian imports to the UK responsible for the revival of the breed, Megana dei Marchesi dei Galpiott from Odivane.
She has proved a most valuable dam to our line with many lovely kids who
have done us proud including Irish & International Champion Bannonbrig Lady May of Flintlock and recent ticket winners Pussycat Doll, Atomic Kitten and Mr Brightside to name but a few, and more importantly wonderful companions for the many families who
have been able to have a puppy of hers. Looking back through her pedigree unlocks so many happy memories of dogs of our own but other important dogs from kennels here and overseas.
photo is a few years old now but one of my favourites...I remember the day in Kelso so very clearly...we got absolutely drenched at a show in Scotland but as usual Maya couldn't have cared a jot and showed like a trooper even though I felt like a drowned rat
plodding round in my wellies...hence the less than preened beard by the time we got to have our turn in the show ring!
She is a wonderful girl with beauty, brains and a wonderful personality.
Happy 7th Birthday Maya xxx
