About Nolan:

The family first fell in love with a PWD at their Newfoundland breeder’s home – Chris and Ingrid Lyden of Nakiska Newfoundlands. Chris and Ingrid co-own a Portie with the breeder: Ch Pouch Cove’s Patriot “Nick”. In 2004 Natasha worked for Peggy and Dave Helming of Pouch Cove at the Newfoundland National. Natasha mentioned to them that she would love to have a male PWD just like Nick. A few months later we had heard from Peggy that she was going to send out this very Nick like 4 month old male Portie. We had decided to keep it a secret and surprise Natasha. In October of 2004 Nolan arrived from the East Coast.

When Natasha arrived home later that day, this adorable little black fuzz ball started running down the hallway towards her, Natasha’s first words were “That is the ugliest Newfoundland puppy that I have ever seen”. Then the realization set in that this wasn’t a Newfie puppy it was a cute Portie Puppy. We told her that he was a gift to her from Peggy. She was so excited and from that moment on they had a very special bond.

Natasha and Nolan made quite the team in the conformation and Junior showmanship ring and were hard to beat.

Nolan has his Am. and Can. championships, multiple Best of Breed wins, multiple Group placements in both the US and Canada and the distinction of being in the PWDCA’s Top 20 in 2009.

A big thank you to Molly Exner for stepping in to special Nolan in 2008 and 2009 – getting many Best of Breed wins and all of his group placements, while his girl was away working for breeders and handlers.
