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.
Keira Rose participated in the indoor Christmas parade at the hospital this week. She was adorable and the patients loved seeing her. She is an awesome therapy dog.
On the oncology floor the smiles and joy were rewarding to behold. Sometimes she spent fifteen minutes cuddling and it was worth every second to see the comfort she could bring – like “an angel from God” one person said.
Keira touches the hearts of everyone she meets with comfort and joy.

Our Nelson celebrated his second birthday in June. We love him so much!
Everyday that we have him in our lives is a blessing. He is such a loving and fine boy. A great companion for us, very gentle and protective of the grandchildren and just all around excellent family member. Goes pretty much wherever we go, he does not like to be left behind at home.

The wonderful Gabriele on her third birthday, June 23.
Polly is a wonderful companion. At five years she can still outrun/play any other dog of any breed or age that we have met. Many people comment on her agility, speed and energy.
Keira Rose and I had the honour of going to Fredericton for The Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem Priory of Canada St. John Council for New Brunswick Annual Awards Ceremony. The chair’s commendation is presented to individuals who have performed an exemplary deed or activity in the pursuit of the objectives of St. John and it was awarded to us for outstanding commitment to the growth and sustainability of the Therapy Dog Program in New Brunswick. It came as a complete surprise!
The Therapy Dog Program has been the most rewarding thing I have ever done. Keira Rose and I are looking forward to a lot more years to come.

Keira Rose and I are learning agility. We have joined a doggie gym just for fun. It is a great way to stimulate her mentally and physically. We have so much ice in St. John our activity is limited outdoors. Like most poodles, Keira Rose is a smart cookie and picks up on things easily.
Pippa and Hudson enjoy a visit with Faith at The Doghouse in St. John’s.
Winter is Phinny’s favorite season. He loves the snow, the cold weather, and of course his Frisbee. We let his coat grow a bit more in the winter. He is a wonderful boy and brings much joy to our family.
