Gracie and Georgie

Gracie & Georgie

Gracie is a smart and sassy, but sweet, little spitfire who continues to absolutely love the truck, car,  tractor, RTV – anything with wheels and an engine.
Gracie turns 4 next month. She has a 3 year old poodle brother, Georgie, who she raised from a little pup. They are different in their natures but are a good “brother/sister” team. She is definitely the boss.
Gracie and Georgie love to run, run, run… Gracie is usually in the lead. Georgie gives up after a while and just finds a stick and lies down, sometimes in his pool or frog pond. Gracie didn’t care for water when she was younger, but she’s deciding if he likes it, she’s gonna like it, too!

Theo – A Tribute

~ Fairhill Farm Spyglass Theodore ~
March 20 2006 – September 17 2020

 

Our beloved Theo has “crossed the bar.”

The period of our sadness and grief pales in comparison with the many years of happiness and companionship which we have enjoyed. He was a regal representative of his species.

Theo was a friendly dog, greeting everyone with affection and receiving an abundance in return. On one occasion he attempted to leave with the FedEx delivery man! He loved attention, often demanding it with a gentle paw-push or a nose-nudge. Social gatherings included his working the room after which he usually found a place to relax and recuperate.

In accordance with his gentle nature, he left us with neither a whine nor wimpier – a class act.
Science tells us that dogs have 25% of identical human DNA – we suspect that his share was much more than that.

Theo will be cremated with one of his favourite “woollies” and a granite marker will be procured for him to join the gallery of our three other standard poodles. They will have excellent company.

We acknowledge loving caregivers, Dr. Lois Fiander and her assistant, Holly, his faithful groomer, “auntie” Gwen Lohnes, dog sitters, Steve and Joyce Nickerson, Agnes Moase and his breeder Kathryn Diefenbach.

In tribute to Theo: 

Crossing the Bar

by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.

Poodle Serendipity in Twillingate

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.

“I am ready for bed!” Victoria Reine has settled in.

Eli of Maryvale

Eli of Maryvale

Eli has proven to be an absolutely delightful addition to our family. He is very intelligent, affectionate, and wonderful with all other living things (with the possible exception of deer flies). He still has a bit of puppy in him at three years.

We are overjoyed with this dog and could not be happier with our choice – an unmitigated testament to your hard work.
