Hogan: my best friend

My beloved Hogan has left this world. He would have been 14 years old in August. He was the best dog anyone could have asked for. He was very healthy his whole life until a week ago. On Monday I let him go.

He was my best friend and the most wonderful companion anyone could want. He was my life and I miss him dearly. Thank you for giving me the pleasure of having him in my life.


Sabrina – Forever Remembered

Sabrina on the Shore at Cape Cod

With sadness, tears, and a heavy heart, I write to tell you that Sabrina took a sudden turn for the worse these past two weeks as she was about to turn 16 1/2 years old. Thank your for sending us such an amazing puppy. She was a true family member and had a wonderful life; we miss her so very much. She will be in our hearts forever. One of my favorite pictures of Sabrina was taken at our home in Cape Cod – her absolute favorite place to be.

We are mourning Sabrina but we also look forward to welcoming a new poodle puppy into our lives soon. Thank you again for blessing us with Sabrina for so many years. We look forward to perpetuating her legacy with one of your magnificent puppies.


Laughlin – snow poodle and therapy dog

Laughlin – Therapy Poodle

Greetings from snowy Quesnel, BC.  The snow banks are fifteen feet high and the only one who is still enjoying the snow is Laughie the snow poodle! He has had quite a fun filled winter doing lots of cross country skiing, hiking the trails and snowshoeing.

Laughie has also been working as a therapy dog, going to both senior care facilities. Every visit, he makes me proud of him as he brings such joy; many residents really look forward to his visits. I often say to one lady, “do you want a visit from someone tall, dark and handsome today?” And she says: is it Laughie or Elvis today? We have a good laugh.

We love Laughlin and appreciate being the proud owners of such a wonderful dog.  He is our therapy dog too!


Kali & Jagger of Riverview

Kali and Jagger

My husband and I have had two beautiful puppies from fairhill farm over the past twelve years. Kali is almost seven years old and is a wonderful companion. Sadly, Jagger died last August from lymphoma. He was the offspring of Shy Valentine (Pookie) and Zelda. He was the best dog we have ever owned. He was 12 years old, lived a full life and was only sick for the last two weeks of his life. His passing has left a big void in our hearts and even Kali was several weeks getting over the loss of her dog.

Bauble – teacher’s pet

Precious Bauble

Bauble is well and continues to make good progress. In obedience training she is the teacher’s pet and star pupil! She makes friends wherever she goes, both people and dogs, although I don’t think she realizes she is canine.

She watched the Westminster Dog Show and was very attentive for some of it, curiously tilting her head as she watched the dogs cross the TV screen. She was extremely excited when the Agility Trials came on, and although you cautioned that she might not fetch reliably she will chase and pounce, so after Obedience we may try Agility. My hope is that she will have her training complete for her Service Dog Designation by her first birthday!

As you can see in the photo she is beautiful and tremendously smart and funny.

I love her to bits!!!

Ruby-Grace loves the snow

Gracie loves, loves, loves the snow!  She is a go, go, go kinda girl when she’s outdoors but, if you can catch her, she’s a real charmer.  Cold does not phase her one bit, and she does not like sweaters and coats.
Gracie can be a bit sassy and filled with spit n’ vinegar – but she loves to snuggle with her mama and listens very well to her poppy.
She is a very, very, very happy and pretty girl!  We love this little charmer.
