Our amazing guy, Hudson, is my daily companion for hikes; exploring the woods and enjoying the outdoors. Life has changed for the better since he came along. He is growing fast and got his first real haircut the other day.
I am totally in love. He is my perfect angel.
Phoebe is filling a spot in our family that we never knew was empty. She is such an angel, and we are more and more in love with her everyday! She likes to relax with us when we’re having a quiet night in and she loves to explore the woods and other trails when we are out and about, which fortunately is quite often here in Gander.

Our sweet guy, named Hudson, is settling in nicely.
He is easy going and affectionate -and so smart.
The kids are in love!

Hudson came to work today while his mom taught yoga.
I will be his sitter when they go away on trips.
He is adorable and loved playing with dog staff, Fergus,
the Irish wolfhound – one I take care of also.
Hope all is well with you.

Richard and I brought home Phoebe in August 2017. We love and cherish her so much. She is very much a “people dog” and loved by everyone she meets. She loves going for hikes, dipping her paws in the nearby river and cuddling up with us. She is especially fond of other dogs and gets along well with almost every other dog she meets.
We recently bought a new house, which has more room and a large fenced backyard. We would like to add another fairhill farm poodle to our family in the spring or summer. We would prefer a male, just to have one of each. Phoebe is not a dominate dog and is submissive with other dogs she meets. I always say, ‘she doesn’t have a bad bone in her body’ because she is so kind. She has had interactions with puppies of other breeds that have been aggressive or try to dominate and she doesn’t like that.
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.
Happy New Year!
Rosie completed her level 1 obedience training with ease, we still work on the lessons and she continues to amaze us with how smart she is. At Christmas she was well behaved around the tree and our many visitors.
Rosie absolutely loves playing in the snow and sits patiently when she comes in to get her paws wiped.

It has been a nice winter thus far, lots of aimless walks and quiet nights in front of the fireplace. I took a few weeks off over the holidays and we hiked almost every day. They are my constant companion. Only work keeps us apart and even though they are bed hogs I wouldn’t want to turn out the lights without them there.
Thank you for gift of poodles,
Things are going great here in St. John’s. We’ve had a wonderful holiday with lots of snow for outdoor activity. Last night we all went sledding – Waylon and Sally included. The snow is perfect for running and chasing. Sally continues to outrun Waylon. And Waylon continues to be frustrated by her speed and agility! Despite the challenge of catching her, he’s stubborn and doesn’t give in. The result: two very exhausted but happy poodles.
Today was mild, with light fluffy snow – perfect for a family walk through the park. We rarely get a ‘family picture’…. but here it is.
Here’s to a healthy and exciting 2018.

We wanted to send you an update on Phoebe to let you know how much we adore her.
We’ve put a lot of time into making sure Phoebe is a well-rounded dog, but she’s got such a naturally sweet personality it has been a joy to develop a bond with her. She’s so well-behaved it is hard to believe she is still a puppy. She’s never chewed anything that isn’t hers, she was very easily housebroken and has slept through the night since day one. Many of our friends who visit say they want to take her home with them.
Phoebe loves to go for walks and trips to the dog park, especially with her puppy friend, Kula. They love to chase each other and use the other as a hurdle to practice their jumping. We are hoping in the coming year to get her involved in some obedience classes and perhaps some agility as well.
Jamie’s mom recently happened to meet another poodle from your farm who lives near her home. How nice it is to find these connections with other people through our dogs! We really enjoy being part of the Fairhill Farm poodle family.

This is our Bridget, now three years old. She is fun and smart and a joy to be around. I was visiting your website and saw a video of your farm which I have always loved. Is it up for sale? I want to wish you all the best and hope that you will still be breeding poodles. Your dogs stand out from all the other dogs here. We are constantly asked where we got our wonderful Bridget. I wanted you to know how beautiful she is and thank you for breeding such a gem.
Reply: Yes, the farm is for sale. It is time for me to move to a home on a smaller scale. The poodles will be coming with me and I expect to continue being the godmother to puppies for many years. Kathryn
