What happened to the snow? I wait all year for it and it’s almost gone! Nicholas has been having a blast chasing the ball on the grass but I’m having trouble finding a bit of snow to roll in and make my big snow angels. Mama says don’t worry there will be more on the way, maybe even today.
We’ve been having a great time with our daily walks on the trails behind RNS. Sometimes with Mama’s hectic schedule it’s quite late in the day when we arrive and we’re coming out of the woods just as the sun is setting. She’s always got her flashlight just in case we get caught late but Daddy says we have to be more careful so we’re trying to get our walks in a bit earlier. We have bumped into so many new and old four-legged furry friends there this past week! First it was Cassie and Finnigan who went tearing around with Nicholas on the fly while I sat close to their daddy for a nice rub (I can’t keep up with the fools so I’m not even trying anymore). I say hello and let them go. They were running, jumping and diving in the air, quite a sight. Then we saw Leonard who was just as crazy (Nicholas thought he died and went straight to Heaven with these fast playmates). We saw our friend and neighbor Max, the border collie (black and white) and then a few days later we met a new guy named Max, also a border collie but brown and white. We met others too but they were busy on their way and we didn’t catch their names. Every day is a new adventure on the trails. On the weekends Daddy comes with us and one day this week our dear friend Heather Mason came for the walk. We absolutely love her and were happy to hear that she’s coming again next week!
If you’re out and about this weekend, drop into our Team Platinum open houses. Saturday Steven is at 41 Pleasant City Street from 2-4 and on Sunday (same time) he’s at 62 Park Drive in Kennebecasis Park while Jody is at 36 Maliseet in Rothesay. You’ll be hearing more from me on these last two properties as they are definitely Paw Approved, if you know what I mean!
Well finally I have my own ad in the Real Estate Guide in the TJ and I’m sooo excited about it! “Buddy’s Best”! This is where as Prudential Platinum Properties’ official mascot I get to present some of my own favourite properties that will be of special interest to all the four-legged furry friends, like me, children and grandchildren of all ages as well. This is what I call “Paw Approved”. After all children and pets want the same features in a home! These properties will include unique features such as large flat yards for running and playing ball, pools for swimming, waterfront beaches for digging and roasting delicious treats at the fire, skating ponds in winter, trails for going on long walks together and treed areas for climbing or even a treehouse! The homes will have larger rooms for playing indoors, ceramic tile or other types of easy care flooring (some floors will be heated), separate play rooms for rainy days, cozy fireplaces to curl up in front of on cold winter days, Jack and Jill bathrooms, plenty of closets to store our toys and some may even have a real dog bath included! All the most features most important to us pets and children! Check it out in the guide and be sure to share “Buddy’s Best” with your furry friends and children. The Team says I’ve got a real eye for fun properties and you know that Buddy Bacon is all about fun, fun, fun in the summer sun and the winter snow too!
Finally, I’m getting my own ad in the Real Estate Guide and not a day too soon! As the Platinum mascot I will be presenting my favourite properties that will be of special interest to all your four-legged furry friends like me, (dogs and cats included) which will appeal to children and grandchildren of all ages as well! These homes will include unique features such as large yards or acreage for running and playing ball, pools for swimming, waterfront beaches for digging and roasting delicious treat at the fire (my favourite is Top Dog wieners), trails for going on long walks together, proximity to parks and treed area for climbing or even a treehouse! All the features that are most important to us pets and children. I spoke up at the last team meeting and everyone agreed with me that this type of property is important to young families with toddlers & young children, tweens and teens, empty nesters with grandchildren and absolutely everyone who owns pets. After all we furry friends have our own check-list of requirements when searching for a new home and the same things that are important to us are important to children as well. Who has more fun than a boy and his dog?
Mama says maybe a girl and her dog or cat. Mama has had many cats in her lifetime and she’s been trying to talk Daddy into allow two new kittens into the house! No luck so far but she hasn’t given up. Daddy is worried about how Nicholas and I will react to kittens but Mama says she’s always had cats and dogs and we will all adjust quickly. So far he’s not convinced. Nicholas and I can’t really imagine it at this point as it’s always been just the two of us. Mama says a kitty would crawl right up on top of me when I’m sleeping and have a nap on my soft warm coat. I’m a pretty easy going guy so I’d probably be okay with that. I might even look out for the little fella. Not sure what Nicholas would think of it all. He might get a little jealous. He does that sometimes even when people pay too much attention to me.
Nicholas and I want to say a special thank you to Carter at the Marr Road Shell Station who unexpectedly treated us to dog treats when we stopped by this week for a much needed car wash. They were yummy good, what a surprise! “Mama, do we need a car wash today?” ha, ha.
On the weekend we were walking the trails behind RNS when who do we bump into but Hunter, Nicholas’ little friend from the Quispamsis Dog Park. Hunter is a Nova Scotia Duck Toller who is two weeks older than Nicholas and they use to play together almost daily since they were eight weeks old. They both stopped going to the park when they were about six months old (that’s when Nicholas got me to play with!) and they hadn’t seen each other since! The two were so excited, jumping and spinning and running around. I was happy to meet Hunter. Mama says he’s a really nice boy and has grown up to be a really nice looking dog with his beautiful dark strawberry blond coat. He couldn’t believe how big Nicholas is now!
I have to say that I’m loving this snow. I just hate it when Mama makes me come in the house. She gets scared that I’m getting cold and keeps a close eye on me but I say that I have a big coat just like a bear, I’m warm and toasty. Sometimes when we’re out walking trails Nicholas will get cold feet and if he stops and holds one up Mama goes over and holds it in her bare cupped hands letting her body heat warm his foot and then away he goes. I never have cold feet; I’m built for this weather and enjoy every bit of it.
The team will be hosting open houses this weekend but keep a close eye on our web site for storm cancellation announcements. After last winter you never know what the weather man will throw at us at the last moment but we’ll keep the web site current if there are any changes. Jody is at our gorgeous new listing at 4 Crosswind Crescent in the heart of Rothesay and Steven is at our stunning new executive ranch at 43 Bel-Air Avenue, Rothesay on Saturday from 2-4 pm. Then on Sunday Jody is hosting our stunning spacious executive home on 5 Valley Road, Hastings Cove while Steven is nearby in Kennebecasis Park at our new cozy bungalow listing with two fireplaces on 18 Forrest Road off Park Drive. If you’re out and about or thinking about a move, drop in they’d love to see you and show you around!
Hope you get out and about this weekend enjoying winter in New Brunswick. Our Uncle Tom and Aunt Shelley have taken up cross-country skiing so Nicholas and I expect we may see them this weekend as we walk the trails behind RNS! Hope to see you there!
