Carova’s I Have A Dream of Boating on the Cooper “Cooper” CGC


A Dream of Boating on the Cooper, “Cooper”,  made the first cut out of 32 competing in Am Bred Class at the 2017 Golden Retriever Club National Specialty.  She looked beautiful with her handler Kristin Lyons.  We look forward to her showing in 2018.

Cooper is out of our GCH Harborview Under Construction OS x  Carova’s Rolled Into Steadmors Helping Hands RN CGC .  She like Molly, had that “IT” factor.  Breeder friends  just kept  watching her in the yard as she tossed out free stack and trots as a youngster.  She has not disappointed us. 09/2016 Coope made her debut at the Chesapeake shows in Va. She was shown beautifully by a friend of mine, Brenda Hux and won Winners and picking up her first point ! What a way to start her show career.

Cooper going WB and BOS at the Augusta SC show October 7, 2018. Amy Walker Wall, thank you for showing her so lovely.

Cooper is loved to the moon and back by Vicky Daniel.   She is a littermate to Molly and both owners have formed a friendship all through the love of dogs. They meet up at shows, and do what many folks said could never be done.  They show littermates, many times, at the same shows!  They can do this , because they have wonderful sportsmanship and respect for each other and their dogs.  Vicky was new to showing and  has also embraced the sport. She has shown Cooper a few times, done handling classes now prefers to use a  handler . Vicky finds it more enjoyable to  sit back and watch her girl strut in the ring.  Cooper is part of our breeding program and when the time is right, will carry on for Gabby.News!!!   09/2017 Carova’s I Have

Carova I have A Dream I’m Magic Molly Carpenter TKI  CGC ” Molly”

Molly is owned and loved by Marilee Glover and her husband Jason.  Marilee was also new to showing and embraced it by learning how to show Molly . Marilee participates in AKC and UKC shows with her girl.  Marilee is a true asset to our Carova Family. She has offered her concierege services to several families who have Molly littermates.  She has spoiled them rotten;)  She also got the ball rolling in creating our Carova Family logo.  Marilee is always ready to lend a helping hand to all. She is a family treasure. Molly is part of our breeding plans and when the time is right will carry on for her mom, Gabby.

Molly picks up another point in Chesapeake 2017

Molly picks up a 3 pt major with Kristin Lyons. 

  Molly is out of  GCH Harborview Under Construction OS  x Carova’s Rolled Into Steadmors Helping Hands RN CGC .   I knew she had something special as a puppy. She strutted the yard and would strike a pose that beckoned you to take notice .  She is taking a few months off to grow coat and mature so she is ready to compete with the older girls.  She is major pointed and we hope will finish her Championship in 2018.

In addition to Molly doing AKC shows, Marilee is enjoying showing her girl 

in the UKC venue.

Carova Olympian Gymnast Olga Korbut  “Skye” RN TKA CGCA

Skye is owned and loved by Billy and Karen Foote.  They are new to showing  and once realized that show dogs are just our pets before anything else, dove into the show dog world. I am so happy they are enjoying the showing and the friends they have made.  Skye is a part of our breeding program and will carry on for Gabby when the time is right

Skye is a repeat breeding in 2017 of  GCH Harborview Under Construction OS x Carova’s Rolled Into Steadmors Helping Hands RN CGC.  Skye started her journey with a bang by going Best of Opposite  Puppy in Sweeps at the Gunpowder River Golden Retriever Club Specilaty ( 04-21-2017).  Her owners had no idea how big of a deal this placement was.  Even the judge, Sandra L. Novocin, had to point out to Karen what an accomplishment this was for a young puppy ( 6-9 months class)  A very fun day and experience for the show dog newbies. Karen showed her own dog, (first time in the ring) and achieved success.  Skye is also working on her obedience titles and is a very easy dog to train.  The sky is the limit for this Skye :).

News ! On September 27th,at the 2017 Golden Retriever Club Of America National Specialty she shined yet again. Skye placed 2nd out of 28 puppies in her 12-15 month puppy class! This was incredible ! This time, her owners were very much aware of the bragging rights with this placement. Kristin Lyons made it look effortless and we thank her with all of our heart.  The sky is the limit for this outstanding puppy, and 2018 is going to be fun !

 Victory’s Queen of Hearts @ Dunkeld & Carova, “Titania”

This sweet girl is out of  GCH Carova’s Handiwork of Oberon  x  GCH Victory’s My Wave Or The High Wave Diva litter.  She is the girl that saved my heart after my Gabby litter passed away. I will forever be thankful to Sharon and David Kitchens of Dunkeld Goldens , Nancy Sherick of Firehouse Goldens, Michelle Moore Vasquez with Victory Goldens and our entire Carova community for making this special pup a part of our home.  As a breeder, my job is to do the best I can to make families happy. I never imagined in a million years,that these families ( my families) would  be the ones to bring me joy and mend my broken heart after my litter was lost. This was our first Oberon offspring ! Thank you to all who made this gift possible along with all the secret angels that also contributed to our new family member. I am blessed.

News!!!!! Sept. 17th,2017  Titania entered her first fun match in Virginia Beach VA  . She won Best puppy !!!

Titania is doing so well with her showing. Titania made the first cut out of 34 puppies competing at the 2017 Golden Retriever Club National Specialty in MD This was fantastic as little Titania had just turned six months old and looked to be very much a baby in the line up. Kristin Lyons made her look even more beautiful ( if that is even possible) and we thank her.  We are all so excited to watch this sweet girl in 2018 !!

News Flash !! In 2016 Titania did a puppy match at Chesapeake Va and earned Best Puppy. One year later, Titania went WB at the Chesapeake Show.  We look forward to her growing some coat and finishing quickly in 2019.
