Today is National Dog Day which encourages pet adoptions! I can tell you that Buddy and Nicholas are certainly celebrating, as we are both from SPCA, Gatineau and Dartmouth respectively. I highly encourage you to consider pet adoption, after all look how good I turned out and my little brother Nicholas is no slouch either. We are kind, loving, and loyal (Nicholas wants to add handsome too) and there isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t fully appreciate our forever home with kind family who love us. We think we have the best mama and papa but all of our ‘four legged friends’ say the same thing. Little Jack McCairns puts up a good argument so do our cousins Myra and Lucas as well as Tux, Rave, and Daisy in Sussex! I say we are all lucky, lucky puppies!!! If you are considering a new pet, check out your local shelter, you have the opportunity to change a pets life and they’ll worship you forever for it!
Here is an update on our cousin Lucas; the little guy (2.4 kg) just received a clean bill of health from his vet yesterday and all his treatments are stopped. His vet, Dr Bogdan, was so impressed with him, with his improvement and his gorgeous new coat, he’s grown!! All the credit goes to our dear Aunty Blue who works so closely with Lucas through this long, one year recovery. Nicholas and I say lucky the dog who gets to call Aunty Blue mama! She is our heroine and Lucas agrees.
Steven is hosting an open house at 21 Upper Deck Lane this Sunday from 2-4 pm. This is a large waterfront condominium with 9 ft ceilings, modern finishes, and a sunny walk out basement. Drop by to say hello and enjoy the view.
Have another great NB weekend! No matter if you’re boating, camping, swimming, biking, checking out the beach, or just being lazy, there is nothing better than summer in New Brunswick! Nicholas and I plan some serious swimming at Carrying Cove, New River Beach. If you see us, come over and say hello! We are super friendly and love meeting new people!
I’ve seen it all now! Last Sunday I was with Nicholas, Mama and Papa at the Gull & Herring at New River Beach and low and behold this little Shiatsu came rolling up on the front of a bicycle! Not a word of a lie. He had a special seat attached to the front of the bike and he was rolling along in front of his Papa. His family pulled up next to us at our picnic table and I’m sure all our jaws dropped! There in bold writing on the side of his special seat was the name of the manufacturer and what do you think it’s called? The “Buddyrider”. Really, it really is, the Buddyrider. I laughed to kill myself, was practically rolling around on the grass and you know Mama, she talks with everyone (they didn’t nickname her in school Chatty Cathy (after the first talking doll) for nothing so she started asking them all about this Buddyrider. Apparently it’s Canadian made in BC and was featured on “Dragon’s Den”. It’s now sold across Canada and the United States plus several other countries. Coolest thing I’ve seen for my little four-legged friends in a long time. Way to go! We just stood and stared as they pull out on their way with the little fellow looking back at us, his ears blowing in the wind and I swear there was a smile on his face! See the pic below. It’s both fun and safe. Check it out at www.buddyrider.ca.
So I turn and say to Papa, “Good luck finding a Buddyrider big enough for the Budster!” Then Mama stated teasing him saying maybe we could buy a two-wheeled cart big enough for the Bud that Papa could haul behind a bike but Papa said no way, he isn’t strong enough to drag a 170 pounds dog in a cart behind a bicycle. Of course Nicholas wouldn’t need any cart as I don’t think you could drive a bike far enough or fast enough to tire that guy out as he’d run alongside wide open, having a ball!
I want to know what the heck is going on when Jack McCairns (pic below) gets to attend an agent’s open house this past Tuesday at 90 Javin Hill with his Papa Jody McCairns and I’ve never been allowed near an agents open house??? What makes him so special? Just because he’s cute, personable and small I don’t except double standards in the company. If Nicholas and I hear Mama say one more time how sweet and precious Jack McCairns is I think we’ll both be sick!!! I was pea green when I found out he attended and they were serving Mexican chicken taquitos to the agents too! I didn’t even get a whiff (not that I’d be allowed to have one on Dr Kelley’s strict orders but still, it’s just not fair, not fair at all and my nose is definitely out of joint, as Nicholas would say! I better not hear that Jack McCairns was wolfing down taquitos; I think it would be more than I could take! I must say that Jack has a very good Papa in Jody who absolutely loves all four legged friends every bit as much as Mama does. Mama is trying to figure out who is more spoiled us boys or Jack. We say Jack takes the cake now as he’s the one that got to attend the open house, not us! Ha ha.
Steven’s at it again with open houses for the public this coming weekend. You just can’t keep a good man down! Saturday he’s at a hot property at 233 Montreal Avenue on the West Side from 11am – 1pm which is a fantastic value, beautifully staged and getting lots of attention. Then from 2pm – 4pm the same day his at 467 Clearview Road West which has water views of the harbour. Drop by and say hello and have a great weekend!
I got some great news this week from Dr. Kelly! I’m not only down 7 pounds but I’ve gained muscle and lost inches! Yahoo! That’s all that swimming I’m doing daily and twice a day on the weekends! Dr. Kelly was sooooo excited she gave me a high-five and did some air pumps. The whole office joined in and Dr. Kelly said that because I’ve been such a good boy and sticking to my regime so well she gifted me a large bag of Royal Canin® Low Calorie Treats. They are super good. I let Nicholas try one (he’s so very fussy) and even he likes them. I don’t know who was more excited me or Dr. Kelly. She’s knows how hard it is for big dogs to lose weight and she said she’s very proud of me! She was telling me how great I’m doing, rubbing my ears and I was lapping it right up! Mama wasn’t sure why she was so excited about a 7 pounds loss but Dr Kelly explained that a 7 pound weight loss in a dog is equal to a 70 pound weight loss in a human with that much pressure off the joints! Wow, now we understand what all the excitement is about. I haven’t once touched Nicholas’ food and I’m staying focused on my healthy meals. I’ve been much more active, playing with Nicholas and started running again yesterday. Onwards and upwards!
The real estate market is still heating up and Mama listed another gorgeous waterfront property yesterday. One that’s right up Buddy’s alley! I’ll tell you more about it next week and include some pics as well.
Steven and Jody are hosting an open house together from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday at 90 Javin Hill off Loch Lomond Road. This is a lovely large 1-acre property with huge 3-car garage with loft for the car enthusiasts. The house has plenty of windows letting in tons of natural sunlight. I love the big flat property, perfect for Nicholas and I to play some ball! On Sunday from 2-4pm Steven is at 1217 Route 865, Cassidy Lake. I had no idea how large this gorgeous lake is and oh so picturesque. It’s large enough for boating and waterskiing too. Perfect for the Budster to have a refreshing swim on a warm summer day. The house is one-level ranch style, very stylish interior and the yard is lovely and flat with nice landscaping a large deck overlooking the water! Drop by to say hello and don’t forget your swimming trunks! I have mine with me at all times, ha ha!
Hope you have a great weekend in sunny New Brunswick!
