Talking about summer fun, we had a great adventure this week with our new friend Special on a big walk from Spy Glass Hill to RNS! So many trails, we took one going over and another one on the return. Gorgeous warm day. Special (a Chesapeake Bay Retriever) is so beautiful and what lovely manners! She calmly trots beside her mother never letting her far from her sight and so friendly and sweet to us boys. We definitely are smitten! Mama knows these trails like the back of her hand as her mother and father lived nearby at Bridle Path Lane and her and her father use to ride these trails on horseback on a regular basis. She has great memories of them racing Dominique and Galley to the top of Spy Glass Hill. Her father always won, as his horse, Galley, was definitely the fastest! Mama says there is nothing to compare with racing cross country at a full gallop on a fast horse with the wind rushing through your hair! Those were the days!

Mark your calendars; Fine Homes International Open Houses this Sunday 2-4pm! Welcome to upscale living in the Valley! Oh please, please, please may Nicholas and I participate? Every house has either an in-ground pool, indoor pool or it is right on the water or both!!! The two of us have so much to offer by way of lifestyle examples. We can show people how much fun you can have swimming in a pool and Nicholas can demonstrate his diving. We can both show how to relax around the pool and I’m especially good at poolside lounging (might even take a quick power nap if no one is looking). At the waterfront homes we can both show off our swimming skills as well as beach fun, racing, digging holes in the sand and collecting sticks for a later twilight campfire. How much fun can your children, grandchildren and pets have at these stunning properties? Just think about it! We say loads and loads of summer fun! Mama is at 36 Elizabeth Parkway in Hastings Cove (Waterfront) and right at the next street at 5 Valley Road (in-ground pool), Steven is at 36 Maliseet Drive, Rothesay (in-ground pool with water access for your boat) and Pam is at 14 Apple Manor Lane, Quispamsis (indoor pool plus waterfront). On Saturday Steven is at 1294 Sand Cove Road, Saint John West located within walking distance of the Irving Nature Park. Lovely home with an ocean view! Hope to see you at our open houses and the paws are crossed that the Team will allow us to chip in and help as we’re both certainly willing and able! If they let us attend Nicholas and I will be giving out free bacon flavoured Buddy Biscuits! Here’s hoping!

Are you ready for the last long weekend of the summer!  Nicholas and I sure are!

The weatherman is calling for sun, sun and more sun the entire weekend which means visits to the beach, lots of fun for Nicholas to run and a lot more swimming for Big Buddy Bacon!  Swimming has been a big part of my weight reduction plan this summer and I’m very proud to say that as of my recent visit to the vet yesterday I am now down 14 pounds which is a big deal when you are only 32 inches tall!!!  Since May of this year I have gone from 176 to 162!  My vet wants me to keep going down a bit more and I plan on doing just that with a whole lot of great swims in the Bay of Fundy this weekend!  A Newfie dogs dream come true.  No matter what your plans are for the weekend ahead, Nicholas and I hope it’s a great one for you, your family and your furry friends.  We are planning a get together with family and friends on Sunday and we are so excited that this includes our Uncle Clinton and our dear Auntie Blue!  Did I mention that I’ve been writing a song about our “Auntie Blue” which is coming along nicely.  She is going to be sooo surprised!  I’ve already got the air and now I’m just critiquing the verses.  It’s several verses long you know.  (We have been getting advice from Mama as we go) Nicholas sings with me in harmony and has added his impute to the lyrics as well!  I don’t know who loves Auntie Blue more, Nicholas or I.  We just can’t wait until we unveil our new song to Auntie Blue!  I can just see her now, laughing until she gets a belly ache!  And we’re sure Uncle Clinton will enjoy it too!

Hopefully the Team will get a well-deserved rest this weekend although being in real estate they can’t expect the entire three days off!  It’s just the nature of the business.  When I buyer gets the notion that they wish to buy, it’s now and the Team are always ready! Steven is excited about his property showings booked for qualified buyers this weekend and Mama has a client flying in from Boston to look at high-end vacation homes!  Perfect weekend for it with all this sunshine!  Nicholas and I wish them all lots of luck with their sales and lots of fun on their days off, they really deserve it!

Have a great one!
