My Story

My Nova Mist breeding program is young but fully dedicated to raising healthy puppies, providing families with the best possible companions.

My Goldens are health tested, both physically and genetically, and I take great care in finding and selecting compatible mates.  Producing healthy, well tempered puppies while conforming to the Golden Retriever breed standard is foremost.

I have participated in AKC, UKC and IABCA shows in conformation as well as experienced the joys of dock diving with my Goldens.

Having had the tremendous fortune of forming a long lasting friendship with Patti Covert of Acadia Golden Retrievers, my Golden dreams continue to become a reality.  Patti has been my teacher and mentor for many years,  encouraging  me to take on new challenges while experiencing the wonders and benefit of sharing my life with my beautiful canine family.


The GRCA provides puppy referral as a convenience to puppy buyers to find out about breeders who are GRCA members and their litters. GRCA takes no responsibility whatsoever for any puppies/dogs that you may acquire through GRCA puppy referral. GRCA is not responsible for any breeder’s sale practices and sales contracts, nor will GRCA be involved in any manner in contract disputes between puppy buyers and breeders. Availability of puppies and conditions of sale are at the sole discretion of the individual breeder. Buyers are encouraged to read ACQUIRING A GOLDEN RETRIEVER, as found on the web-site, for general information about obtaining a puppy, to take as much time as necessary to locate a reputable breeder from whom they feel comfortable purchasing a puppy, and to investigate breeders and their puppies thoroughly before committing to a purchase. You are not obligated to purchase a puppy from the breeders whose names you obtain from GRCA puppy referral.
