Nova, like her littermates, has a wonderfully textured short course thick brown coat. She has a lovely head with beautiful expression and her movement is sound. She loves to retrieve and her attitude is very Chesapeake-loving but is more aloof with strangers.
Nova is pointed in the show ring and is being shown limitedly at this time. She’s been shown three weekends and has earned 10 points – including two majors, one earned by going Best of Breed under breeder judge, Nathaniel Horn. Nova also participates in dock diving events and will start training for her UKC Started and AKC Junior Hunter titles this year.
Nova’s littermates are doing well in the ring and we hope she’ll continue in their footsteps. Her brother, Oak, finished his championship with 4 majors (2 0ver specials) and has several group placements under his belt with very limited showing. Her sister, Jesse, finished her championship with 3 majors (a 4 pt. major and two 5 pt. majors) and took the Select Bitch Win at the 2011 ACC National Show Speciality (NSS) – which was one of the largest NSS’s in the history of the breed having over 400 entries.
