Where has the last two weeks gone?  The Olympics are over tomorrow and Nicholas and I have been cheering on our great Canadian athletes every night!  South Korea did a beautiful job of hosting this Olympics with it’s friendly people, perfectly organized and terrific venues for the athlete!  We especially like the figure skating, snow boarding, skiing and speed skating.  Nicholas thinks he could navigate a snow board on a gentle hill and his agile friend Max Black up the street is considering it as well.  What a pair!  It wouldn’t surprise me.    I can tell you now that Big Buddy Bacon is keeping all four-on-the-floor in the grass and in the snow!!!  Wow, what a games with our all time Canadian metal count of 29 Olympic metals, including 10 Gold!!!  Go Canada go!  Tough Cunucks!  The Moose is Loose!  We’re so very proud of all our Canadian Olympians!

Congratulations to all of Team Canada on a fabulous 2018 Olympic Games!





I hope you’re enjoying the mild weather as much as I am!  No snow, or very little means longer walks for Big Buddy Bacon and Mama is ecstatic that she doesn’t have to wear big winter boots.  It also means lots more showings on our listings and more buyers for Mama and Charlie to show around.  Not much fun for the buyers to be out in big snow storms but with weather like we’ve had lately it’s perfect winter conditions for viewing properties.

All conditions were just met at 26 Squire Drive in Quispamsis, a unique property on one full acre with 4-car garage.  So we say ‘Congratulations’ to our sellers Jamie & Lisa Guidry as they move on to a new home!  Charlie did some great negotiating on this one and this is Mama’s fourth home sale for the Guidry’s in her career, she really appreciates their loyalty and repeat business!

26 Squire is SOLD!  We were just out to put up the SOLD sign!







Join Mama this Sunday for open house in Drury Cove at 21 Upper Deck from 2-4pm.  This is a stunning home I can highly recommend with waterfront on the cove off the Kennebecasis River it’s perfect for boating, swimming and if your two-legged, skating!


Hope you have a great weekend, get out there and enjoy and you never know when a freak snow storm will hit in March!

Looking forward to Valentine’s Day coming up very soon!  Be sure to get out there and get your sweetheart a nice card and a little treat!  We always get Mama a card and Papa never forgets her, he’s very sentimental that way.  Nicholas and I wish we had girlfriends (I’ve been eyeballing a cute Golden Doodle on the Allison trails) but since we don’t we’re happy to just treat our Mama and let her know how much we love her.  She says we’re a couple of real Sweethearts and we don’t understand why that makes Papa moan!






Charlie and Mama has been busy as bees listing lovely new properties from Westfield to Rockwood Park area, Darlings Island to St. Martins.  Stay posted for descriptions to pics.  Some are water view and some are waterfront!  Either way if it’s near the water count the Budster in!!!

Here we are in the middle of another snow storm!  Oh joy, oh bliss!  Just what the Budster ordered!!!  Nicholas is just as happy to curl up by the fireplace with Mama and Papa.  I’m so glad they take us out each day for a big walk on the trails.  We meet so many nice four-legged friends and the crisp fresh air makes Buddy very happy!  Have a great week and we’ll talk soon.

Your pal,

I’m all excited about our new listing at 11 Fairholme Street in Quispamsis with not only it’s beautifully updated home but it’s the fantastic yard that’s really turning my crank!  Sure it has an inviting cosy propane fireplace in the family room and a spacious eat in kitchen which is always one of Buddy’s favourite rooms but the yard….  This yard is all fenced, (Mama likes this feature for us boys,  I say, “Who let the dog out???”, remember that song) with handsome wrought iron on the street side, the landscaping is over the moon with stone walls, walkways and patio but it’s the pool that makes me drool!  How much fun could Nicholas and I have here in this heated 20′ x 40′ pool?  Well, let me tell you, we could have a lot!!!  With built-in stairs I could leisurely glide in several times a day and crazy little Nicholas could practise his diving at the deep end.  When we’re at the beach he just runs wide open and dives right in and he could do the same here.  Mama says there’s only one problem, how do you get the dogs out of the pool when their names are Nicholas and Buddy Bacon?  I can see her point but then again, I can dream can’t I?  Have a closer look.  Can you picture me in this pool with a big smile on my face?








Charlie invites you to his open house this Sunday from 2-4 pm at 241 Hampton Road, Quispamsis $244,900.  This 1 1/2 story home is zoned for business and with it’s convenient corner location it would be the perfect place for that.  It has a large paved driveway and oversized 2-car detached garage.  Home or business the choice is yours!  Charlie will be rushing home for the big game Sunday at 6pm as I’m sure many of you will be as well.  Super Bowl Sunday is big at our house too!  Bella Turnbull will be waiting for him and while she is curled up with Charlie on the couch cheering on the game you can bet that Nicholas and I will be doing the same on our couch with Papa!!!

The weather has been nuts hasn’t it!!!!  Cold and warm, cold and warm.  Last Sunday we couldn’t believe how warm it was for Mama’s open houses.  Papa took us for a nice walk behind RNS through the trails which is one of our fav spots for such things.  Then it dropped cold and now today it’s raining.  Personally I love the cold.  When it was so cold with blowing snow and high winds on Tuesday I was in Heaven!  I sat out in our driveway for two hours with my head back and the wind blowing my ears.  Mama kept calling me to come in the house and I did eventually but not until I had what I like to call my ‘frigid fix’.  Mama stopped trimming my fur last September to let it grow in thick for the winter and let me tell you the Budster is sporting his winter finest at the moment!  Thick and heavy with it’s double undercoat I don’t feel a thing when it’s cold.  Then I came in and snuggled up with Nicholas who was waiting for me on the sofa.   But none of us are big on the rain.  Mama won’t take us walking in the rain so Nicholas and I are stuck in the house, just trying to entertain ourselves.  This is when we usually get into a wee bit of mischief, like stealing slippers or chewing on a pillow, just the usual.  Sometimes we play tug of war in the foyer, always lots of fun as long as the tug item is one of our toys and not Mama’s slipper!  If it’s Mama’s slipper all h_ _ _ breaks loose!!!

Have a great weekend.  I’ll be watching for you on the trails or at the Sobeys parking lot where we seem to end up at some point over the weekend.  If you see Nicholas or I hanging out the window of my red SUV be sure to come over and say ‘Hello’ but be careful as Nicholas gives very sloppy kisses!  They didn’t nickname him Romeo at the dog park for nothing.  Don’t let that cute face fool ya!

Nicholas enjoys a ride in the Budmobile.
