Merrylee Malanowski took Nicholas to a match to get him ready for the show season and he was BOB under sheltie breeder Linda Kunicki. He went on to win the herding group. It would be SO EXCITING if both Nicky and Chip finished this year as they are both son's of Ch. Sunburst Acadia Here I Come (Carrie). If you really think Chip and Nicky have a close family resemblance, their fathers are litter brothers. Chip is sired by Ch. Acadia's Bright Idea, NA, NAJ, RA, and Nicky is sired by Ch. Acadia Rock Solid.
