Never a dull moment at our house as Mama negotiates another bidding war from her home office! What used to be rare in New Brunswick is now common place as all eyes focus on the Maritimes and people flee from the big cities for a safer more relaxed lifestyle! I always knew that NB was the place to be with it’s beautiful beaches, miles of nature trails and the friendliest people and four-legged friends you’ll every meet but it took a pandemic for others to catch on. There’s nowhere else Nicholas and I would rather be. Mama always called New Brunswick “Canada’s Best Kept Secret” and actually wrote an article with this title for the DuPont Registry. Seems like the secret is out!!!
Nicholas enjoys the snow.
We have an exciting new listing coming up next week in Quispamsis. New house with all the latest finishes and a finsihed basement. Check back for an update.
We’ve been enjoying our daily walks to Spyglass Hill especially since this last snowfall has covered the ice and it’s very good walking. So many people walk the trails here that the snow is patted down just like a sidewalk (makes Mama happy). We love running into our friends, having a good romp in the snow (this is more Nicholas) and just saying hello with a good swish of our tails. All the dogs and owners are so friendly here. If we’re lucky we may get to go for a drive in my truck to Cosco this week. I love watching the parking lot to see who’s coming and going. Nicholas and I don’t take our eyes off the big front door as we watch for Mama and Papa to come back out. We love it when people come over to say hello!
Have a good week and we’ll see you soon. Be safe, wear your mask and social distance!

Happy Valentines Day! This is a very special day in our house as it’s also Mama and Papa’s wedding anniversary! 29 Years this year! They usually have a holiday to the warm south (Hilton Head Island) to celebrate but with Covid they need to stay close to home this year (we’re super happy about that!). They just arrived home in time last year on March 4th before Covid opened up and the world was turned upside down. The only good thing Nicholas and I can say about it is that we’re happy to have Mama and Papa around every single day. We never did like them going away anyway.
The real estate market has been insane in New Brunswick, Realtors have never seen a thing like it! Interests rates are super low too but the challange is finding a house! Mama has listed several in the past few weeks ranging in price from $419,000 to $1,175,000 and she has another coming up soon at $195,000. It has four bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, finished walkout basement, on just over an acre in Martinon. It’s in good shape but in need of updating. I’ll be sharing more on that later.
Monday is Family Day which now gives us one long weekend a month! How sweet is that. Sparky Turnbull will be enjoying the day with his Papa, Charlie, out for a long walk and probably a nice warm stew. We’re hoping it warms up a bit so that we can get out for a nice long walk. I don’t mind the cold at all but Mama and Nicholas seem to have a problem. I love it!!! I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in my front yard just watching the street and enjoying the chill. I thoroughly enjoyed the storm last week!!!! My kind of day.
We’re not out and about as much as usually while we stay in zone Orange but this can’t last forever. Have a great long weekend and stay safe!

It’s vitally important right now that the public pay strict attention to Covid protocol! Good measures are in place to protect the sellers, the buyers and their agents. These are challanging times but as long as everyone follows the rules we’ll all be safe. If you are concerned give Mama or Charlie a call and they can give you the details. The market is still extremely hot as buyers and sellers move to more desirable homes as they spend more time at home then they have have in their lives!
Most people did not enjoy the big storm we had Tuesday but let me tell you I sure did! I was out early in the morning before 7am, everything was white, fluffy and cold, just the way us big dogs like it! Nicholas came out for about 15 to 20 minutes and then he was back in the house on his favourite couch. At 8am I came in for a good breakfast and by 9 am I was back out enjoying the storm. I stayed out for hours until my black coat was pretty well white and then Mama brought me in. It was okay, it was getting milder and starting to turn to rain, I had gotten the best of it. Then after a night of rain what a mess our driveway and walkways were! TG we got that all cleaned up. Nicholas is enjoying this milder weather. Mama always says you never know what you’ll get in February!!! So we’re bracing ourselves for whatever Mother Nature sends our way.
Since southern New Brunswick zone 2 is still in code orange, we don’t get out and about much except for the trails of Spy Glass Hill. If Mama has to go to the store (which she’s doing as little as possible) we do go for the drive and wait in the parking lot with our windows down as we watch the shoppers come and go. Stay safe and we’ll talk soon.
