A big thank you to Marjorie, the owner of Sabrina and Jazmine, for the exquisite poodle weather-vane which she hand delivered via Boston, MA all the way from St. Petersburg, Russia.
Beau is sweet, agreeable and gentle with both children and adults. He interacts well with other dogs and with his “brothers” – Ben, the guinea pig, and Ginger, a stray cat who was near death that we couldn’t turn away. Beau loves playing soccer, walking and running but hates getting up in the morning – he’d rather sleep in! He has the sweetest temperament, is loved by all who meet him, and receives many compliments on our walks.
We cannot imagine a dog better suited to our lifestyle. I appreciate the advice you have given us and your expertise in matching pups with people. Our lives have been greatly enriched by having Beau in our family.
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.
Ten years ago I came to fairhill farm and you suggested that Ginger would be the best fit for me. Today she is 10 years old and still very much the puppy. She had her checkup a few weeks ago and the veterinarian said that she was in excellent health – including her very good teeth.
I am grateful to you, Kathryn, for you steering me to Ginger. She is a great companion and friend and is the darling of St Mary’s Parish here in Prince George. We have our regular walks and she is always happy to see me when I come home.
Thank you for giving me many happy memories.

Jazmine is an absolute joy. She is following in her Great Aunt Sabrina’s footsteps – loving the beach as you can see. We love her dearly.
Jazmine is every bit as vivacious as she was as a puppy and encompasses “joie de vive.” She is intelligent, energetic, humorous and spreads love where ever she goes. She kisses everyone she meets, whether human or canine, and carriers herself with full confidence. Our veterinarian told me in 30 years of practice he has never met a dog as extraordinary as Jazmine. Even on the day of her spaying, she joyfully kissed everyone at the vet’s office, and placed her paw around the arm of the Vet, while tilting her head, to show her understanding of his words.
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.
