Maud - Thandiwe Maud Earl
Sh Ch / Ir Sh Ch Kingsmist Eternal Knight x Thandiwe Tempus Fugit to Bryncae
Born  28/6/12  Bred by D Channon
“Maud” returned to the fold at the end of 2017. Maud had been the member of her owners ‘beating team’ in Scotland, and was much loved and appreciated. Life took a new direction, which would involve Maud’s owner being out of the country for months at a time, so after a lot of soul searching, it was decided it would be in Maud’s best interests to live back with me permanently. I commend the owner for putting Maud’s needs before her own. I know it wasn’t an easy decision for her, and she remains in touch and interested in Maud’s life.
Maud is a delight to live with, - sweet, gentle and biddable, devoted without being clingy. She has a bit of a cheeky edge, and seems to get pleasure from making people laugh.
Lightly, but sympathetically shown by Abi Stone (Maud would rather be working), she also represents the breed at Discover Dogs, Game Fairs and Vulnerable Breed events.
Maud accompanies me on the beating line of a local shoot, when work commitments allow, but more than anything, she is happy just to be where I am.
