Fritz, Roscoe & baby Jane

Just a quick note to say hello and give you an update on our two boys, Roscoe and Fritz. They are doing wonderful! Roscoe will be 11 years old this month though he acts like a puppy most of the time. We call him our old faithful as he never disappoints and he is pleasant to everyone, human and dog that he meets. Fritz is still as exuberant as ever! We now live close to a lake and he takes a morning swim almost every day. He is a character, always making us laugh.

Fritz&Jane

April last year we welcomed our daughter, Jane, to the world. She is now 13 months old. Roscoe pretends she doesn’t exist. Fritz and Jane are the best of friends. He sleeps in her room, lets her lay across him watching TV and they even share snacks. She is learning to walk with Fritz’s help. She holds on to his side and the two of them slowly walk across the floor.

We are so lucky to have these two amazing poodles in our lives. Jackie

On the Road to Alaska

I’m having a wonderful time on my journey to Alaska. I am learning to like my leash and have learned to jump into and out of the truck and camper. Even though it has only small spaces, my new owners let me run around at least once or twice a day and promise I will have a wonderful place to run on my own in my new home. Oh, and I know my name is Jensen. I am really a smart little guy. Happy is my go to girl buddy and if I am unsure, I can watch her and know what to do. She also puts me in my place if I think I know more than I do.

 My new owners thought I had a tick in my eyelid, but now they cannot find it. It either fell off or went away. I know nothing about that stuff, but maybe it wasn’t a tick.

 Thank you for my good upbringing and the wonderful times I had on the farm with you, Gordon and my puppy siblings. I will keep in touch as I go through Canada. Today we are about to leave Manitoba and off to Alberta tomorrow to see the Rocky Mts.

Here some photos of me on our trip to my new home.      Jensen

 

 

Miranda’s New Puppies

Miranda pups May 20'12Miranda has six beautiful new puppies. Randy is the father. There are five girls!  Most are very dark apricot or red color. All are healthy robust pups and lined up side by side they look like a row of fat little sausages.

 Miranda has a wonderful new home to retire to when she has finished raising her pups.  This is the last of several beautiful litters she gave birth to on Fairhill Farm.

Visitors from Away – far away!

Murray and Kristy arrived today after a 5,000 mile journey from Alaska.  Seasoned travelers, well equipped with a truck-bed camper, they are veterans to the long haul.  This year they decided to head east, all the way east, to the Atlantic shores of Nova Scotia.

We had a great visit; a walk around the farm and an opportunity to exchange life experiences. They have lots of wilderness experience and live on the abundance of the wild. We had a meat exchange before they left; Fairhill Farm beef steak in exchange for Alaska caribou and moose meat.

They chose a wonderful apricot puppy from Apple’s latest litter and named him Jensen.  He has his own doggy bed in the back seat of the truck next to his doggy mentor and travel guide named Happy. She is a mini/toy poodle who more than lives up to her name and is such a sweetie I could have taken her in trade!

Gibson

Kristy and Murray’s previous standard poodle was fhf Gibson, born in 1998.

Jensen has very big paw prints to grow into for him to replace his much loved predecessor. With the help of his small but “happy” poodle teacher I am sure he will find his way.
