Grand CH Chrysalis Winter Gold

(Starborough Smoke Chant x CH Starborough Pavlovna)

b. 2/4/2006

Savona was our singleton puppy born during the Italian Winter Olympics in 2006,  thus her name. We had not had a litter in eight years so naturally our beautiful, black-masked, red and white girl who Bill affectionately calls Bona, was a treasure. 

All Savona’s points towards her championship were taken from the bred-by exhibitor class. She finished her conformation championship at age three in March of 2009 and was bred a month later to English import Am Ch. Manitias Brilliant In Black owned by Janis McFerrin (Firequest). The British Novels Litter Chapter One was our fourth litter at Chrysalis and co-bred with Janis.

After being off a year Savona re-entered the show ring taking Select at the Greater Twin Cities Borzoi Specialty in June of 2010. Later that summer she was honored with Best of Opposite at the Midwest Borzoi Specialty. Savona went on to finish her Grand Championship in January 2011. 

We are very proud of our “Bona” and her puppies and are enjoying bringing them out in the ring and field. Most importantly, we could not be happier with all our special friends who own Savona/Jeeves offspring. 

Savona is semi retired from showing and re-entered the ring as a veteran competing in Veteran Sweepstakes competition. In August, 2013 she was awarded 2 Best Veteran In Sweepstakes. She loved being out in the ring again and we look forward to showing her in this venue whenever the opportunity arises.
