This is Willow our African
Grey Parrot. He is a real character and loves to keep us laughing.
Hatched Jan 1st, 1996.
The brown horse is Reba. We bred her mother Shadow Royal (Thoroughbred) to a paint stud. So Reba is the"paint that aint".
We lost her mom a couple of years ago at 33yrs. Reba was born in 1996 . She is a very calm horse as long as we are going out with someone else. Isn't even having too many problems with weird looking animals like Alpacas. She is a beautiful horse. Nope not selling her.
These are the resident moose that keep eating our hay. Notice our attempt at protecting our hay? They still managed to get their feed. They even invited 3 more moose to join in. So one morning I caught 5 moose out there eating our hay without any batteries for my camera. Anyone know of a way of scaring moose away?
Sprinkling wolf pee all over the area, in the trees, on the tarp we put on the hay, it does not work. Thought of a paint ball gun, but then all the moose in the country would be covered in paint. And with my luck, I would shoot out the windows on my truck.
Think we figured it out. My Dad is helping me put up a very high fence of barbed wire, I think it just might work!!! Nope didn't work, but my son-in-law came out from Ontario over Christmas holidays and built me a big box. So far, no sign of moose around the box or in the field (knock wood) I won't hold my breath, but I am praying.
Thank you Edward, it worked!!! Other than me hitting it with my truck a couple of
times the moose were unable to penetrate the magnificent structure!!!
A jumble of cat and dogs cuddling on the big chair on a cold winter night.(big cat)
This is where our other babies get to shine.
This is Mr. Tibbs-Neil's cat dob 2000-2017
Rawhide (black) is a 1/4 horse X Percheron. He is a very strong boy and I really enjoy him this year. Last year was a different story. I spent some time on him but lots of time looking up at him laying on the ground. He has turned out and I guess he will be staying here awhile. 17- 21yrs old? Now as the time has gone by there has been probably 4yrs or close to it, that I haven't been able to ride with different things happening to get in the way, like work, injuries etc... Maybe this year I hope
This is our dear sweet baby Lacey. She is the one that brought us some of the top Champion Canadian bred bloodlines into our home. Sadly we had to make the decision to have her put to sleep and end the pain she was experiencing. Sad day, love you and miss you so much. Can't believe you are gone. Looking for you to cuddle with still... almost a year gone and it still feels like yesterday...
December 12, 2012 12/12/12 We will meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.
Our little man Mr. Beau Jangles has left for the Rainbow Bridge. 2001-2012 Will miss you little guy see you again at the Rainbow Bridge...
This is Yoshi. Full of attitude. She was
my daughters cat until she moved out. Yoshi was born in 1996-2013 I thought
it was time, losing weight more miserable than usual was telling me 17yrs was enough. Miss you so much Wait for me little girl at the rainbow bridge and I will be there soon ... Love you baby girl
Well the box lasted a couple of years but Neil put up a shed that will work Moose can't get in, photo below
I went in there one day and couldn't get out cause the door closed behind me and locked so had to bust it open as nobody was about to save me. Anyway here it is and there it stands. We are getting round bales this year so not really using it other than to store our grain in and yes in Rubbermaid containers so the mice don't take up residence. Then the snow blower has a new home. But glad it got built and it may come in handy if we do get more square bales :)
Sookie DOB March 2011 Always found on the pellet stove on a cold winters day.
Sookie has moved to her forever home with our youngest daughter and her family she is much happier without the dogs and the other cats to torment her. Things happen for a reason. My daughters cat died a week before we sent Sookie to them. Who knew it would work out? It is fate :)

DOB Sept 2013
Ooops I lied, we now have a little sister for these big boys. Will post photo soon her name right now is Zoey
Our beautiful Coquette came out of Lacey and has produced some very lovely puppies. She was dark brown as a puppy but they do fade due to the sun and being brown, they fade a little.
Gone but never forgotten.
This is our first brown girl Candi attitude from day one when we adopted her from a lady in New York. She has produced some fine babies that have become wonderful pets. Very loving dog.
This is Neil and I, figured I should add a photo so you would know who we are.
This is Theodore AKA "Theo"
Beautiful African Grey male, 7 yrs old and new to us.
This is Jade. A very sweet Rotti that we have had since she was 8wks old. We both loved her very much. We originally got her for the imitating factor. But if you know a Rotti, then you know that while they are barking, their little stub tail is wagging and she is just saying "Hi" You get much closer and she may knock you down but it is only to lick you to death. She only got to 12yrs and that was not long enough for us, but it was long enough for her. We had to have her put down yesterday, a hard day for us and we miss you so much baby girl... Til we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge...
"Merlin" & "Magic"
DOB Sept 2013
Sharing the cat tree
Showing our dogs- females
The girls are checked for eyes, hips and elbows. If they do not pass their testing, they do not stay in our breeding program.
Just to let you know, I have had our dogs shown in the past. Hiring handlers etc...As of right now, no, we are no longer showing. We guarantee our puppies against any crippling genetic disorders for 2yrs. We take dogs back if people can no longer take care of them and we re-home them with as much care as we do with new puppies.We have not been showing our girls in the past at all. Though we do prefer our puppies to go to a forever family as pets as they get the attention they deserve as just the grooming kennel then bath brush, blowdry clip then kennel etc... Showing is political and we know our dogs have the quality for showing. Not all dogs can be shown due to faults-no dog is perfect. If you think my dogs have not been groomed as on other sites, it is not nessesary to have everyone in a show clip all the time. Too much work. I do groom other peoples dogs as well. Better short kennel clip than anything else for me.My dogs are in our home and not in kennels or crates unless we have to go out for a while then they are still in our home. Check out our pedigrees on our dogs. Speakes for itself. We have some of our girls retired from breeding and our dogs are never over-bred. All are healthy and happy. We do know when they are getting tired and when there is more bad days than good ones. We are the only ones that can speak for them and have learned that being selfish by keeping them alive while they are miserable is terrible. A couple of years ago, we took our little Poppy to the vet for teeth cleaning, the vet felt the dog and her face said it all, she had liver cancer. We had to send her off to the Rainbow Bridge that day, without warning. Broke my heart.
We miss them and they still share in our lives as memories. I have posted the animals that have been sharing our lives for the past 20yrs. We take very good care of our dogs and make sure we do all we can to make their lives fun and nobody is left out. We are not planning to carry this on forever as we are getting older. Anyway, I figured I should let all that want to know, we enjoy our poodles and I know many others that love our poodles too as part of their families. We know the standard of the poodle as they are 3 sizes toy, miniature and Standard. The breed standard is the same for all three with exception to the size of them. Just thought I would make all of questions clearly answered. We are not backyard breeders we know what we are doing and have been doing it for a long time. Any questions, don't hesitate to ask us. thank you.
Our little Poppy girl. Can't tell you how much she is missed.
Our year old Standard Poodle "Paris". These photos were taken when she was about 4-5 months- she is pretty big now.
DOB Dec 29th, 2016 We tried so many names but nothing would stick. Now she is fitting her name. Personality Plus. Was planning to breed and show but her breeder decided that she didn't want to move forward with that. We love her very much and she gets along with the other dogs, cats, birds and even horses lol.
