November is always a busy month for real estate sales for Mama and this year is no exception! She’s been busy showing homes at both ends of the pricing spectrum from well under $200,000 to well over $1Million. Makes no difference what the price is, she knows your home is your castle and it’s the most important personal transaction of your life! Let me tell you, Buddy Bacon understands this too! Coming from a shelter in Gatineau Quebec to my furrever home in Rothesay is something I’ll never forget! I remember a very long drive with some rest breaks but it seemed like we were driving forever! Where was I going, what would my new family be like? Would they be kind and loving, happy to have the Big Budster on board? I have to admit I was nervous on the way down just crossing my paws that I was being adopted by nice people. When I arrived in the yard of my new home, I could see out my window Mama, Papa and Nicholas all waiting in the yard for me with big smiles on their faces and I knew instantly that things were going to be okay. I jumped out of the back seat and ran right over to them, wagging my tail as hard as I could. Nicholas was jumping around like a maniac, kissing me, Mama and Papa were rubbing my fur and it was just the greatest feeling in the world! I was going to be okay, I’d be with this family forever who would love me to the end of the world and back. I came in the house and felt instantly right at home. It had spacious rooms, perfect for a big dog and lots of cozy corners and a fireplace for me to curl up in for a snooze. I ate a nice supper and we all settled in to get to know each other better. I remember every detail just like it was yesterday and I must say it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me!
My Google ad, 6 months old! Just arrived at the house!
Nicholas was so sweet to share the couch with me, here I’m 1 year old!
This is the reason Mama sponsors her ad in the Telegraph Journal every Saturday since September 2004, called “I Need A Home”. It’s so nice dogs like me have a better chance of finding a furrever home. We’re all so thankful that the local community supports this important project with every dog, cat and even a three-legged rabbit being adopted off our ads. Thank you Southern NB for providing loving homes for my friends at the shelter.
As we draw closer to the Christmas season, just a month away, please keep the shelter in mind for donations! This can be money, always appreciated, but they also need food and any old beds, toys or treats that you are not using. One year, the week before Christmas, Mama called the shelter and asked how many dogs were in residence that day. Then she went out and bought each of them a huge bone and we went down to the shelter, made the rounds and gave each one their new treat. They absolutely loved it!!! And it truly melted our hearts! You can always consider adoption as well but keep in mind there is a cut off time prior to Christmas for adoptions. They want people to be sure they want that new pet furrever and understand all the responsibility that goes with it. There is still time now, so head on over and check out the line up!
So when Mama talks about the importance of a home, Big Buddy Bacon can tell you from his heart that he knows exactly what she’s talking about!
Another very important event coming up soon is the Empty Stocking Fund! Nicholas and I always support this event and we look forward to doing so again this year! We watch it on TV and listen for our names to be called.
Have a great weekend and we’ll talk soon,
