BHRR’s Winter Wonderland
November 11th, 2019

As always, they thrive best with consistency, structure and routine and are ‘on alert’ waiting patiently for Kinsley to come home from school. That time of day!

THAT we are currently receiving 15+cms of snow and it is a snow day, does not cross their minds!

AND there is always one or two that march to their own drum – Summit (Deaf/Blind) & Salt (Deaf/Visually Impaired) are the only SMART ones, realising that Kinsley is actually in the house and are facing the house! 

Nothing wrong with their noses and they have excelled with their scent training!  Summit & Salt win in knowing exactly where Kinsley is!

A great day for fun filled snow play and now all are crashed out by the fireplaces having nice snoozes!

BHRR’s Mollie(1 year old Saint/Standard Poodle Mix)

She was at the Vet tonight for her latest recheck and her Lymes Booster.

She is doing well on her Lymes Disease treatment and in February/March she shall require another blood test to determine if she is now Lymes disease free. That is the time of year that all dogs should be getting their annual testing as is and for her it will be the regular 4DX plus a Quant 6.

Her obedience has gone very well and she has made some new besties here and Ireland remains her main squeeze!

She is learning to play nicely with the other dogs – she is a bit of a bossy diva – and to learn that it is not ALL about her. She has called the shots far too long where she came from and can now demonstrate patience and even to be gentle.

Though, she shall always be a rough house player – that is the tomboy in her!

In about three weeks time, if all continues to go well, she should be ready to make her own special announcement! 

We shall also have her professionally groomed in November too. I do not want those gorgeous floppy ears shaved.

Just a nice overall trim and tidy all over so that she can see and look her most beautiful!

She is extremely talented and more lovely than any words can ever be put down on paper and she has wonderfully surprised me with the very stunning and unique artful creation of an Irish Wolfhound, inspired by our Bunker Dude. She is calling it ‘Art For A Cause’.

The Wolfhound Cù Sìth

10% of sales of her products will come to BHRR!

*You can purchase t-shirts, mugs, mousepads, totes, greeting cards and SO much more! She will be adding products regularly.

The Wolfhound Cù Sìth

Miss Mollie is not impressed!
(1 year old Saint Bernard/Standard Poodle)

I took her with me to get the mail and on the way, noted that deer had knocked down part of our top row of horse fencing.

So, I safely secured Miss Mollie to one of the gate posts and took the 25-30 minute to fix the top rung of fencing in that area.

She was NOT impressed that I would stop the stroll that was ‘all’ about her to get the mail in this lovely fall weather! 

She is nowhere ready to be trusted off leash and so we go for walks/hikes and she gets to run with freedom in our 3+ acre fenced in yard in addition to 30 acres of our horse pasture…..

She is a bit of a diva princess!

She remains on her course of strong antibiotics for the Lymes disease and will have a recheck at the end of the month.

She is going to make a home a truly fabu addition when we get her healthy! 

She is also going to be our recipient of our 8th annual ‘Give it up 4 Autumn’ fundraiser that shall begin in early November! 


Miss Mollie came with me to work on Saturday September 28th.

1 year old Saint Bernard/Standard PoodleX

She weighed 32.6 kgs(71.72 pounds) and is at an ideal weight for her.

Unfortunately, in doing our proactive detailed bloodwork panel as part of our mandate of doing right by each dog that comes into BHRR; it was discovered that she is Lymes disease positive.

So, she has begun treatment which includes getting the Lymes vaccine – she will require a booster in four weeks time plus she is now on a 28 day course of Doxycycline.

All of our dogs go on flea/tick and Heartworm meds and are de-wormed. We never cut corners with our Vetting for the dogs in our care.

So, this sweet, a bit shy and nervous still of strangers young lady – yet, we have only had her 10 days – will be with us for some time as we work to successfully treat her Lymes disease.

This is a pic of her with one of my fellow work colleagues at EVC – they came in on their day off to meet Miss Mollie! 

This beautiful pup is going to be an amazing addition to the right matched forever loving home when she is healthy! She really is such a doll!


Miss Mollie is doing very well! 
1 year old Standard Poodle/Saint BernardX
*Once again she is NOT a purebred Saint this or a Berdoodle that. She is a mix, a delightful one, yet, a mix.*

She has also made a couple of friends to date – Dynamo and Jigsaw AND we have determined as she has settled in more that she is play driven not prey driven – huge rough high play right now yet, her previous home did say that they could not meet her exercise and play needs – kept her in a room, segregated- so she is making up for a lot of lost time.

Crate trained, so quiet in the house – she only has just begun to show she has a voice with small sounds of happiness AND yup! As I thought, she is a full butt wagger! 

Here is a picture of her helping me to tear down the posters/signage we put up for our big annual ‘Dine With The Doggies’ Event! She took this years’ place of honour and came with me to open up the gate for our amazing evening.

She is a little shy and nervous of people yet, you can tell that she wants to be loved and we already know how much love she has to give! 

On a side note, for those who have expressed interest in purchasing tickets for 2020, we are already over 50% SOLD OUT! Get your tickets soon for we ended up with a waiting list for 2019 and sadly, as this is a limited attendee event, we can only have so many guests attend.

BHRR’s Mollie is coming to work with me tomorrow to begin her vetting protocol – bloodwork, vaccines, fecal testing etc.

She is eating plus drinking well and has proven to be housebroken.

Her leash manners are a wee bit rough but we shall get there and her one bad habit is jumping, we are working on it!

Happy Friday Morning to all!

BHRR’s Mollie!
(1 year old Saint Bernard / Standard Poodle Mix)
*Please do not tell me she is a Saint this or Berdoodle that etc. She is quite simply a mix.

A wonderful beautiful mixed breed girl! 

Morning walk!

She had a great night and is drinking, had her first pee and is taking some treats.

A bit nervous yet, responding well….

It is almost like she has always been here! Going to so enjoy having her here and look forward to her personality to shine – it is in there….I can see it!

We are home and she is settling in well….

She is smaller than the pics make her out to be, so a small ‘giant’! 

Miss Mollie, I look forward in getting to know you and you us!

She is about 1 year of age and is a Standard Poodle/Saint Bernard mix.

Thank you again Megan for picking her up and meeting me! It allowed me to do so many errands and prep for tomorrow’s big day here! 

Megan Wright has her!

Thank you! She would not even accept gas money and I am deeply touched as I know what is costs in time and heart and energy and money to do these transports.

Drive safe and see you both soon!

I am now on my way to meet up with them!

Welcome to BHRR Miss Mollie!

~1 year old female Saint Bernard/Standard PoodleX

Reason for surrendering as O. has a senior – 11 year old female Standard Poodle and the puppy is a bit too much of a puppy for the older gal.

O. also has a grandchild that the puppy has bumped and knocked over.

O. is not able to give her the exercise, time and attention that Miss Mollie needs. This has not been an easy decision for her O.
