what a cutie! so fluffy!
Jul 16, 2007 allgodscritters
No wonder you're happy! You have Heaven on Earth with these two. They look as though they have always been together. I wish that all the puppies in the world could have as much love from their humans as Tango and Dance obviously have from you. I believe that you were truly meant for each other and hope that you have many, many wonderful years together.

Aww, so cute! I love this pic. :D

I live in Nova Scotia, so I grinned from ear to ear when I opened today's Daily Puppy and saw our official provincial dog featured! Dance is a gorgeous example of the breed, which is beloved here and around the world. Wonderful photos! Best wishes for a long and happy life together for all of you!

OH MY GOD, what a lovely little girl, I just love the breed.
Jul 16, 2007 BTLabs
This is a breed that I was not familiar with but now I am thanks to beautiful little Dance. What an adorable face she has and she's so fluffy! Congratulations on having the dog of your dreams! Tango is a cutie too!

Michael, I totally understand why you´re obsessed with the Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever - what a sweetie! Where did you find Dance? I live in Spain and would appreciate any help you can give me. Txs

Thank you for sharing the most beautiful and accurate description of this marvelous breed. Your love and pleasure in her is infectious, so muc so that she is learning to be completely tuned into to you. Your reward to her of teaching her about you and what you want from her so that she may please you is exactly what she needs so that she will one day exemplify all of the wonderful qualities you bring out of the troller in her.

Lovely coat color.
Jul 16, 2007 DogMom
Beautiful, beautiful dog! She is soooo precious -- kisses and hugs (and extra pool time) for your lovely Dance and Tango too!!!!
Jul 16, 2007 Kate
Awww, I saw these dogs at a show last summer and thought to myself "how beautiful!" Dance is adorable, I love the pictures of her in the pool. What a cutie!
Jul 16, 2007 PuppyLover11
She is adorable. Her face is just to cute.
Jul 16, 2007 DharmaG

aaahhhh bless. what a cutie smiley face she´s got. Looks like a bear cub.Love the water pics.......
Jul 16, 2007 doggy_lover121
hi!!! Oh My Gosh! Dance is a beauty. If I could get a thrid dog I would get a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever! I have a friend who is dying for a Toller. All she does ALL day is tell me all about them and show me pics! She even has a page on her website that is ALL Tollers! She absolutely loves them and she's trying to convince her parents to get one. Your Dance is an absolute beauty though. She really is beautiful!
aaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwhhhhhhhhhhhh h...the pix of Dance sitting next to Tango...so cute it look like they are mom and pup!
I hope you keeping having the perfect dogs!
You should do Tango as the Grown-up puppy, I would love to see more of her!
Jul 16, 2007 roscoeroxypepper
i love this little baby, god bless your family
Jul 16, 2007 pauleenm
She's beautiful. I can see why a person would have a life long love affair with the breed.
Jul 16, 2007 DKN
SO CUTE!

She should have named her "Cash". Heh heh....

No seriously, "Dance" is a brilliant name for a dog!
Jul 16, 2007 shellyrini
i have never heard of a toller retreiver before, but thanks for introducing me to such a lovely breed. Dance is gorgeous. I love the pic of her with Tango. Looks like they love each other already. My fav is the one of her in the pool. I love the wet dog look, it is soooo cute. I am cracking up looking at it. Looks like the wait was very well worth it. Good luck with your little love.
She is beautiful, and Tango is great too!
Jul 16, 2007 Lizsterr
Wow! I have never seen this breed before (not very surprising). She looks so inquisitive and alert. Looks like a great pup, I can't wait to see her when she is grown-up!
Jul 16, 2007 Sunbee
So very sweet. Great shots.
Jul 16, 2007 weaselsmom
I wish every dog in the world could know the kind of love you have for your dogs. It is very touching. Please, friends, urge your friends and neighbors toadopt from shelters and lets give all those waiting babies a chance to have a life like Dance's!!!! Have fun!
Jul 16, 2007 yoliesf
I am so touched by how much you love her!!!!!!!! And she is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!! Enjoy!

P.S.

Love the name too!
Jul 16, 2007 doriesmom
Dance is adorable. What a beauty!!! Hope you have long lives together with much happiness and fun times. Enjoy!!
Jul 16, 2007 bopeep
Dance, you beautiful baby, you have a perpetual smile on your sweet face, and probably because your mom has so much love for you. Tango, you are also a beauty. Have a long, healthy, happy life together. Hugs and kisses from Kansas.
Jul 16, 2007 Msgreyeyes
Dance is SO adorable!! You are so very lucky to have such a beautiful dog :-)

Congrats on your puppy! Dance is adorable! I love water loving dogs! So much fun! :D
Jul 16, 2007 Judi
Oh, what a sweetie. Love the picture of Dance swimming! I was not aware that this breed existed so I really enjoyed seeing him. Reminds me of my childhood friend, an austrialian sheep named Dusty.
Jul 16, 2007 Phoenix
What a beautiful little baby! It's clear that you love her and I wish you all many happy years together! Congratulations on getting your 'dream puppy'!
Jul 16, 2007 Chloe's Mom

Jul 16, 2007 mling
What a gorgeous dog!! She looks so sweet!
Jul 16, 2007 susieqcheryl
He looks tired (the eyes), but very happy, (the smiling mouth). What a great little guy.
Jul 16, 2007 Shelterdog
She's so pretty, and I love her smile.
Jul 16, 2007 mldohm
I have a "Toller" Mix and he's a gorgeous, sweet, precious boy. Looked a lot like Dance when he was a baby! Email me if you want me to send pictures of him as a baby and now. Dance is a sweetheart and will make your life complete!
Jul 16, 2007 nash5081
Congratulations! Sounds like your a lady who knows what she wants. I could have never bought a collar, and not bought the dog to go in it the very next day. What self control you have. I'm so glad Dance is everything you dreamed she would be. She sure sounds like a good girl. With you and Tango in her life she will surely grow up to be a happy doggie. All the pictures are great, thanks for sharing your story with all of us. It sure put a smile on my face today
Jul 16, 2007 pjamas10
Aww what a pretty breed! I've never heard or seen it before. I love the little pink nose!
Jul 16, 2007 MangoMutt
I just wanted to thank everyone for all of your comments on my girls. I very much enjoyed reading all of them!

Tango & Dance's mom
Jul 16, 2007 gill
Love the picture with Dance coming out of the water. She looks so at home there. Very confident. Hope you have many wonderful years with her. It's always exciting to get the breed you thought about for many years. I was the same with my CKC spaniel. I have had two dogs now and love them to bits. They definitely enrich your life! Have fun. Big hugs to both dogs.
Jul 16, 2007 k9soul
Congratulations Dance! You are such a gorgeous girl and I'm so very happy for your mom, she's gotta be bursting at the seams with pride today!
Jul 16, 2007 puppylove17
Soooo cute! Such senstive eyes!
Jul 16, 2007 puppylovervet
what a darling
Jul 16, 2007 nestudhalter
Dance is very sweet looking. The little folds around her eyes and her up turned mouth give her such a loving expression. Good for you for following your passion. I love water dogs and retrievers too.
Jul 16, 2007 BeckersUNC
Count me as another newbie toller fan. Love that little upturned mouth and bright eyes!
Jul 16, 2007 cs3andme
Dance and Tango are absolutely beautiful. We were fortunate to adopt two Tollers from rescue shelters, and you are right about their wonderful personality and temperament. Tollers are very special dogs. Much happiness and a long, furry life to you and yours! :)
Jul 16, 2007 minnesota_mama
So beautiful! I've had my eye on this breed for sometime and can't wait to get one of my own :) Such gentle, loving dogs! Have fun with those cuties
Jul 16, 2007 rkincaide
Dance and Tango are so beautiful i just love the pictures of Dance playing in the water.......
Jul 16, 2007 tambore
Nearly fell off my chair when I saw Dance's dreamy picture and then her damp ears and then her with Tango! Simply beautiful, the two of them.

You must be so happy waking up each morning to find them waiting for you. Joy, joy!
Jul 16, 2007 Chris Myers
I love both of your dogs. Have fun with them. I know you will be enjoying both of them. They should get more than eleven biscuits.
Jul 16, 2007 Delilah_Carroll
My Chocolate Lab puppy (13 weeks) is rather afraid of the water, well, I suppose she will get used to it. Yours seem to love it though. Have fun with your beautiful baby.:)
Jul 16, 2007 rdimonte
Dance is a beautiful dog. I just love her name, so unique. She looks so cute alongside your other dog, Tango. Looks like Dance enjoys the water; good for her. She truly is adorable, & I wish you all the luck in the world with her.

:) cuuuuuute~
Jul 16, 2007 edb1917
Neither my daughter nor I have ever heard of this particular breed, but now she wants one.

Dance is just darling - very hard to pick a favorite picture. She looks like she's just a delight to have around, lots of personality comes through in her pics.
Jul 16, 2007 Delilah_Carroll
I know, aren't they just perfect? Again, ADORABLE PUPPY!!! 8)
Jul 16, 2007 taramh
What a cutie! Where the short hair on her face meets her longer hair around her face is heart shaped! She also looks like she has eyebrows which give her face a lot of expression. You are soooo cute and soft!! :)
Jul 16, 2007 Jean1018
Those EYES wow. They just say You Have To LOVE Me !
Jul 16, 2007 mo
What a cute, active little fluffball! She seems to really like swimming(and the camera), and the picture of her and Tango is to die for!!!

[Ha I see a pattern here: Dance and Tango, eh? Well I love dance myself so all the better!]

Congratulations on finding your dream dog!
Jul 17, 2007 Suzette
As I was looking at her pictures, I thought: "These don't look like puppy eyes, they look like the eyes of a mature dog." Then I read your story. Her eyes fit the temperment you described.
She is a very pretty dog. I love her ears. I've never seen one of this breed, but she is a pretty one. I can see why you wanted her.
Enjoy the lovely lady.
Jul 17, 2007 piobaire
Your dogs look like best friends. You gotta have dog friends for sure, and these two are just darling. I never heard of this breed and I'm going to web right after I post this to check them out. 11 hundred biscuits and duckies for Dance and Tango!

I love her! I'm looking for a duck tolling retiever myself. Does anyone have information on how I could get one? I've been looking for some time now.
Jul 18, 2007 jmjmj57
How absolutely wonderful for BOTH of you! She's beautiful!
Jul 18, 2007 cobillie
Dance is just gorgeous. Never heard of this breed before - but absolutely beautiful. Take good care of her, OK! Give Dance big slurpy kisses from Colorado! Oh, so cute!
Jul 18, 2007 Puppyluv146
What a sweetie!
Jul 19, 2007 sylvanbliss
Retrievers rule, I admire your enthusiasm! I've always thought NSDTR were a nice size dog, not too big, not too small. Just right.

Why not try dancing with Dance? She's eager to please and smart, maybe she'd enjoy dancing with you? One of mine joins in if I'm dancing but we're not competitive.

I can't get over how much Dance resembles my red-headed Grandmother! It's like looking into her eyes again...she was a beautiful, artistic lady that loved dogs and lived on a lake. I'd be happy if my Grandmother Fern came back as your dog. I'm certain you'll take good care of her!
Jul 19, 2007 MangoMutt
Thanks again everyone!

Sylvanbliss, I'm sure she'd like dancing but unfortunately for her, I wouldn't ever be able to do anything like that. I'm too shy to ever do it in front of anyone else, Lol. I will be doing Agility and possibly Rally-Obedience with her though. That's kind of neat about your grandmother also. :)
Jul 19, 2007 Britt2500
I never payed much attention to this breed, but wow. She is just such a beauty.
Jul 20, 2007 pupaholic
I give Dance 11,111,111 biscuits!!!
Jul 21, 2007 maryandjohn
What a sweet face Dance has! I have to admit I've not familiar with this breed - but I will have to check it out.
Jul 21, 2007 ILoveDogs20
i am just in love with Dance.she is so beautiful.she has such a sweet face.i hope youu enjoy your life togerther!
Jul 22, 2007 krizteen
LOVE this puppy! I had a duck tolling for a glorious 12 years! She was the most fabulous dog I've ever had (not including the pups I have now!) and we grew up with together. She flew to Texas from Nova Scotia when she was just a few months old. She died when I was just 21 years old and one day I hope to get another. They are absolutely wonderful dogs, companions, and best friends to a human. Not too mention how cute they are!!
Jul 22, 2007 Sasafras56
What a beauty! I have never heard of this breed but must be special. I have a terrier mutt who loves the water! Kisses and hugs to both your dogs.
Jul 24, 2007 dogluvr234
i absolutely luv this dog! i luv water dogs and i have one myself!

To quote Neil Young:

Never knew love had a rainbow on it
Used to think a cloud was a nightmare
That was up until when I first met you
Now I go around hopin' you care
Dance, Dance, feel it all around you
Dance, Dance, Dance
Never knew love had a rainbow on it
See the girl, Dance!
Aug 18, 2007 vllybllstar
aawww dance and her "puppy" sibling (i call all dogs puppies) are so cute together! i love all the pics but the pool ones are especially cute
Aug 18, 2007 vllybllstar
aaahhh it didn't work again
the pic was the 1 with dance and tango
Aug 28, 2007 Lizanne
Awww I love Dance too. When you get a chance to "sit it out or Dance, ...Dance...". The name is very unusual and I love it. Very smart looking puppy. The natural smile is just great. :)

Absolutely beautiful dog! The best expression and features....wonderful breed!
Sep 2, 2007 MangoMutt
I just want to thank everyone again for all of the comments. She really is a wonderful puppy, and in all honesty, the best pup I've ever had. I also wanted to say that incase any of you ever want to see more pictures of her as she grows, I frequently update my flickr page as well as my webshots page. Both are found at these links:

Woooow what a beautiful gorgeous breed! I've never actually been lucky enough to see a Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever, but this is my best friend's dream dog and I am sooooo happy to finally see pictures of one! Dance is incredible! What a precious face with so much character. Just look at those eyes. I cant stop looking at her over and over again! I thank god for creating a creature so absolutely breathtaking!

There are some puppies that simply take your breath away, and Dance is one of them. The pictures of her in the pool are amazing. She looks to be so smart and full of joy. Absolutely beautiful.
Feb 15, 2008 aden1994
she is ADORABLE! i've never seen or heard of this breed before. Tango is adorable too. i bet Tango acts like a mom to Dance.
Feb 15, 2008 BW
I just wanted to tell you that i'd never heard of or seen a Nova Scotia before but when Dance came up as the Daily Puppy, she was so beautiful that i decided this is the breed i want. I have pics of Dance and a few other Nova Scotia's all over my desk, (and incidentially on the inside of the pantry to remind my husband this is the puppy we are getting). I hope when I'm ready to get one, i'll find one as pretty as Dance. Thank you to introducing me to the breed.
Mar 7, 2008 SorryCharlie_17
What a gorgeous dog! I always wanted a Novia Scotia, but I could never find one! She is so beautiful! I love her coloring! :D

Where did you find Dance? I've been looking for a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever forever and I cannot find any that are in a reasonable price range. I'm not looking for a show quality just a puppy that I can run and play with. Any ideas??
Nov 27, 2010 ayache09
Can somebody get me out of here?-lol what a cutie pie she is I just love this type of breed soooooooooooooo much!
