Alnclair Maggie May

       Maggie made us very proud by becoming a GRAND CHAMPION on 15 November 2003 - Maggie is from only the 3rd litter we have bred.  Maggie achieved this wonderful accomplishment with style and at a steady pace as she had been out of the show ring for nearly 18 months with maternal duties - GO GIRL!

Maggie is the ultimate show girl.  A multi BOB, BIG, BIS and RUBIS winner at "All Breeds" shows on top of regularly being "on the pegs" at Specialty Show level, including BISS & R/U BISS.  Maggie is a real performer at home too, keeping us highly amused with her antics - we are thinking of entering her in "Funniest Home Videos"!

Maggie is  proudly owned, bred and deeply loved by us both.

Very sadly we had to say goodbye to our darling girl on Saturday 13 April 2013 at 10am - she lives on through 4 generations and we will never forget her here at "Alnclair".

What some of the Judges have said about our Maggie:

Golden Retriever Club of Queensland Championship show
12 July 2009 - Mr Wayne Pearson (Beaucroft Kennels - VIC)

 

 2nd place in Veteran Bitch Class (her only GRC show this year)

"A lovely 11 1/2 year old bitch who is starting to show her age and unlucky to meet the winner here today.  Strong bitch in excellent condition.  Feminine well balanced head with soft pleasing expression.  Adequate front and rear angulation, moved truly but did not have the reach and drive today as the first placegetter."

(General judge comment: "A lovely class of Veteran ladies".)

 

 Also Best Veteran in Show (10+ years) Sweepstakes

Judge Mr C Woodrow Qld

Reserve Bitch Challenge 

"This young 10 year old looked a picture and enjoyed every moment of her time in the ring.  Pretty, well chiselled head, good reach of neck, well set on to correctly angled shoulders.  Dead level topline on the stack and when moving.  My reserve bitch CC winner.

(Two great ladies of the breed, a credit to their owners and breeders.)"
