We had to say goodbye to Ceilidh on April 7th only a little more than two months after she was diagnosed with cancer. Ceilidh made it easy for us to love her as she was such an obedient and loving dog. She had a knack of nuzzling very softly into your thigh looking for a pat. She won many people over with her affection and sweetness.
Ceilidh was quite the hunter as she had a keen eyesight and sharp hunting prowess. She had a high prey drive and her alertness to wildlife was uncanny. The excitement would build and she would chatter. Her athleticism enabled her to run with speed and grace through the trails. She would often come back with partial rose bushes or twigs tangled in her hair.
At the end, Laughlin, our younger poodle, became Ceilidh’s service dog. He was respectful and as gentle as a lamb with Ceilidh, always by her side. He kept her calm and comforted the entire time. It really was a wonderful partnership. Laughie was giving back to Ceilidh for everything that she taught him as she was such a wise, experienced lady herself! After Ceilidh’s passing, Laughie looked for Ceilidh for a week. We kept him busy with walks and play. He has his stride back but I think he still misses his companion.
We loved Ceilidh so much and miss her terribly. I held Ceilidh in my hand when she was 3 days old at your farm and we held her in our hands as she took her last breaths. Thank you for giving us such an affectionate, athletic, intelligent, fearless and loyal dog. We are heart broken and will never forget Ceilidh’s wonderfulness.
Oliver has become the man of the house. He is so protective of his little brother! These days he is always close to Alistair, almost as if he is comforting and explaining life to him. They are so special! Thank you again for trusting me with them.
Sometimes it only takes a haircut to turn a fuzzy puppy into a handsome young dog.
Lincoln is doing very well. He loves to go outside and play ball rain or shine. Lincoln has so much personality, he thinks he’s a person. Lincoln follows his own routine everyday. He guards the house by looking over the other side of the couch. Lincoln is so lovely to wake to in the morning.

Fergus at nine months is a big boy. I call him my little pony!
He loves the outdoors, going for a walk or romping and playing with our Airedale, Copper.
Fergus is a great dog.
Oliver checks out the comfort of his roomy new chiar
Oliver got a new chair this week. It is like he is almost human. He looks at me with those clear brown, oh so wise, eyes and I feel like all is well with the world!!! He makes my heart sing!
What a Handsome Boy Am I
Finnegan loves to visit himself in the mirror and practices a bit of barking there as well. We are very happy with our choice to purchase a puppy from you. He is super smart, very willing to try new things, outgoing and friendly. Bounces like a rabbit which gets lots of laughs when we visit the park. He has learned the game of hide and seek and clearly LOVES to play. When he’s seeking he is super alert and obviously all in.
The most glorious head in all the universe in my humble opinion – Ann
Alistair’s most glorious head
Finn and his new side-kick Lucy embark on adventures of off road wanderings of the trails surrounding St. John’s. The highlight of the day was their discovery of an otter along a river bank and the futile attempts of Finn & Lucy to follow the clever little fellow.
