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!
Keira Rose and I visited Centracare to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. She is a hit with the patients and struts around like the diva she is. We had fun and the residents love it when I dress her up.
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.
Fergus is two years old and enjoying a beautiful day in fresh fallen snow.
He’s a great dog – loves his life – always a happy boy.
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!!!
Paulette and Bauble
