No words can describe how devastated I was by the death of our beloved Nova at the age of 10 from cancer.  An otherwise extremely healthy dog contracted an exceedingly rare cancer - Mesothelioma -  for which there is no cure and we could not save Nova.  She died just after turning 10 years of age. I still miss her and grieve profoundly for her.

  • Sept 27/08  Nova competed in one day of rally trials in the Finger Lakes circuit in Romulus, NY and earned 1 more RAE leg.  That was Nova's 8th; Nova needs 2 more RAE legs to finish her title.  Thank goodness we didn't enter Sunday's trials because it poured with rain in the morning (outdoor trial).
  • Sept. 6-7/08  More AKC hunt tests at Darien, NY and Nova earned her 4th leg on Saturday to earn her title.  She ran again on Sunday, scoring a little higher overall (8's and 9's out of 10) because the weather conditions were better. Her son Vadasz and daughter Miska also finished their JH titles on Sunday.  All in all, a great weekend for our dogs!

  • April 25, 2008  Nova and her daughter Miska completed their CKC Rally Advanced titles at the St. Catharines & District trials, earning 94 and 97/100 respectively.  And Nova's 2 sons, Chili and  Tyro earned their first rally novice legs!

She didn't want to heel or lie down in the mud and frankly, I didn't blame her.
