Hi Angela, Nova is really SUPER!!! He is beyond our expectations, what a lovable little guy and so well balance.

Guest what, we know one person at AC cargo and there he is at the counter. Boy did we get a personalized service. The aircraft came in 20 minutes late.

You should have seen his assurance when they brought him over to us on a pallet with a forklift. Nova surely was not stressed, his crate was not soiled.

We can see the great work you all accomplished in his development. He met our 2 grands sons 2 and 4 years old and he is great with kids.

We had Nova meet our Sweetie Pie in a neutral place, the baseball field, and you would have had a good laugh. Nova was running towards Pie and she was keeping a good distance from him, it took some time to tame Pie and then we came home for Pie's frisbee run and all went very well.

After coming in and a good meal, Nova is well asleep after a very big day for him.

We will be sending you pictures as we go along.

Thanks again

Joanne and Gerry

  Thank you Joanne & Gerry for the update!!  Nova is a very special boy, we are so happy that you love him so much already!

 Saying good-bye to Nova before he leaves to start his new life.
