It is hard to believe that 2010 is almost gone!!!   We have had an amazing year and feel very fortunate to have so many friends around the world supporting us along the way!!!  We were super excited to welcome Ruger to our family back in February, we will never be able to thank Ellen and Amy of Thornapple Aussies enough for allowing Ruger to come to Canada to live with us.  We have always loved Ruger ever since we saw his puppy pictures but never dreamed that he would someday join our family. 
And then there is Quarry...Quarry was sent to us to show by his breeder, Lisa Wensley.  Quarry won us over quickly and we were very happy when his breeder said that he could live in Nova Scotia with us.  Quarry had an amazing puppy career with Collin, he ended the year as the #1 Aussie puppy in Canada and the #9 Aussie in Canada!!!  The support from our local dog show community was incredible...it was SO amazing to hear everyone cheering for Quarry when he won his first best puppy in show, that was a moment that we will NEVER forget!!!! 
We had one more addition to our home in July and that was Miss Charlotte.  We had waited almost 3 years for the right puppy from Calais Carolina and Charlotte was definitely worth the wait!!!  She is a beautiful example of the breed, very smart and very loving! 

We are looking forward to a very exciting 2011!!!  Our very first litter here at Novacoast will be born in January.  This is a litter that we have been looking forward to for a very long time!!!  We will also be busy with our dog clubs.  I will be serving as the secretary of our local kennel club (SSKC) and will also be a regional director for our national breed club (CNASA).  It will be a busy but very fun year!!
