Keira Rose & Kim – Therapy Dog Volunteers

Therapy Dogs bring so much joy and love to people who are no longer able to have pets in their lives. This is why I love what we do so much. It means the world to the patients and their families. We share stories about us and they have stories to share about them.

Keira Rose has the perfect personality/disposition for Therapy Dog work. She seems to just go in, assess the situation and do what needs to be done for each patient. She cuddles on beds with some, on couches with some, and sits with some. It is remarkable to watch the transformation of people when they get a visit from her; very rewarding for all involved.


Mollie & Jasper: get the ball at sea or in a tree!

Here is an update on our two black sweetie-monsters. They are funny and adorable and are very bonded to each other.

Jasper smiles when he gets a tummy rub and we have to explain to people that he is smiling and not showing his pearly whites as a warning.

We were able to snowshoe with them almost every day last winter – good exercise for us all and even our Chihuahua joined in most days.

We and Mollie thank you for letting us have her little brother Jasper.

Just a quick note and a picture to let you know that our poodle Phinnaeous Shaw gets better every year. He is going to be five this fall and continues to be a wonderful testament to the amazing standard poodles that come from Fairhill Farm.

Phinn is a joy and simply loves everything  and everyone he meets. He is an extremely important part of our family and we love him more each day.
