We four are at Twillingate at a campground with our Roadtrek. Tori and Boye are enjoying the change in scenery.
Out of the woods came two standard poodles. We let all the poodles off leash and they had a ball. As it turned out they were relatives! Phoebe and Gilbert – red and black with Keeper being the father of both. Boye‘s sire was also Keeper. They really had a family time. The owners are from Nova Scotia but living in Cornerbrook for the last seven years.
We spent only one night in a motel when we were in Newfoundland and “the queen” made the most of it.

Elliot, Alistair and Oliver
The three boys are as amazing as always.
Alistair, the gentle giant, got a grass seed buried in his foot which had to be removed. He was not amused by being house bound for a few day; he does love his outside time.
Oliver is, as always, Oliver and very much my protector and hand holder.
Elliot is the most loving, sweetest dog I think I have ever had in my world. He is truly amazing.
I love them all to pieces and am very blessed to have them.
Phoebe & Major
Major has been doing great since we brought him home in October and is growing into quite a handsome dog. He was quick to housebreak and a fast learner. The first week was interesting as Phoebe was trying to figure it all out, but they have became fast friends. We often call Major Phoebe’s Shadow – he loves following her around. Major is a little more mischievous than Phoebe, who prides herself on her good behaviour. Major loves to find socks in the laundry and bring them to Phoebe’s bed to chew on for a little while before leaving them behind to frame Phoebe for his crime. But we know her well and have caught him with socks in his mouth enough times to know who the true culprit is.
If I am in the kitchen that’s where you’ll find Major. He loves to lie at my feet while I cook or even while I’m doing the dishes. I know well-enough now to watch where I’m going or else I might trip up in a poodle. He’s a great little friend and he has fit in so well. Thank you for another wonderful dog. We felt Phoebe was setting the bar pretty high, but Major is another great dog. We couldn’t be happier.
Phoebe is doing well too. She continues to be a wonderful girl who is eager to please and easy-going. Her maturity has been emerging over the past year both with the arrival of Major and her approaching third birthday. She’s a wonderful companion and we are so pleased to have her as part of our family. I fell late last year and suffered a couple injuries including a broken arm and Phoebe took it upon herself to be my personal nurse while I recovered. She barely left my side and was so careful about her movements when she was lying next to me. If I was spending time in the living room on a small couch, she would find the tiniest bit of space to curl up next to me and stay there as long as I did. She was a great comfort during my recovery and it always amazed us how she seemed to know what my limits were and to avoid my broken arm. She’s the sweetest girl and she is loved so much.
Thank you again for giving us two wonderful dogs!

Four fhf poodles in St. John’s get together at the holidays, as they often do throughout the year, to wish all their kindred poos a Merry Christmas.
Tex has settled in very well and is growing like a weed….his paws are huge, so much for him being the smallest puppy of the litter! He and Kali are becoming great buddies and spend lots of time playing in the garden….my hosta beds are their favourite spot. Tex and Lucie, our African Grey parrot, have also met several times when the parrot decides she is going to walk through the kitchen. The animal kingdom is getting along fine!
