This gorgeous warm weather is making me think that summer is just around the corner and has me daydreaming of lots of visits to the beach so that Nicholas and I can have some refreshing swims. New River Beach, Carrying Cove and Haggerty’s Cove are my personal favourites. I don’t care if it’s only spring, if I can talk Mama in to driving me down, I’ll jump right in that Bay of Fundy and the cold water won’t bother me a bit with my thick Newfie coat!!! Now the little fella, that’s a different story (a bit of a whus if you ask me) but Mama says his fine silky coat doesn’t keep out the cold of the Bay like mine does. He is a great swimmer and super-fast but we don’t see much of that before mid-June!!! He dog paddles across the water like a bat out of h_ _ _ with those skinny little legs just a flying. I’d put my money on Nicholas against any dog in a swim race! Now the Budster does a more relaxed paddle with my big webbed feet steadily churning through the water. The difference is that I can sustain my pace for a long time without tiring as I casually glide across the surface. There is really nothing I enjoy more than a refreshing swim. When we arrive at the beach and Mama opens the truck door I leap right out and Nicholas better not get in my way. I run straight for the water and dive right in! Mama says she can practically see me smile! I’m built for the water with natural buoyancy in my thick chest so I don’t even get my back wet, I can practically float without much movement. If any of you four-legged friends are interested I give free swimming lessons with Nicholas as my assistant offering vocal encouragement! We’re hoping to give lessons to our new furry partner Sparky Turnbull. He’s been going in his lake to his knees (how spoiled is he with his own private lake) and just needs a bit of help getting over the hump to take that plunge!
Mama and Charlie are still as busy as bees as our market stays red hot! It seems that every time an offer comes in on our listings or they write on someone else’s there’s a bidding war! At least 50% of the bidders are now from Ontario, 20% from BC and the rest are local. Don’t count our local bidders out as when they want a property they are winning many of the bids. Yes they are paying more for the properties then they ever had to in history but they are also getting more for their own places than at any other time. So if you’re local, it’s all coming out in the wash!
Me, Nicholas and Papa are going to be helping Mama with yard work this weekend as we take advantage of the gorgeous weather! They do most of the work and we tend to supervise, encourage and provide all round good cheer!
Have a great weekend and watch for us as we’re out and about in my red truck. Don’t forget to wear your mask, social distance and stay safe! We’re in this together!

With buyers flooding in from across the country, prices at an all-time high and interest rates at historic lows, now is the opportune time to sell your house. We’re not kidding when we say that the market is on fire! Never in the history of our province have we seen home prices as high as they are now. Everyone is asking “When will the bubble burst?”. No one knows the answer to this all important question, so get on board and don’t miss this opportunity of a lifetime. If you’ve ever thought of selling, the time is now!
Nicholas and I got to meet one of our new buyers this week who is here from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates . Like so many people who grew up in our city and have lived away, but have family in Southern New Brunswick, they are looking to move back to our beautiful province. And this lady is a dog lover!!! We came along for the drive for the showing of homes and were in the driveway hanging our heads out the window when she spotted us. It was love at first site as she came over and rubbed our ears as we gave a warm hello and lots of kisses. This was one of our happiest home showings ever! What a nice lady. We enjoyed meeting her as much as she enjoyed meeting us. She has a beautiful golden lab named Molly who Mama got to meet through video tour while showing the houses remotely to Molly’s Papa who is back home babysitting. Mama says that Molly is as friendly as us and Molly got to have a visit with her Mama on the video tour! Oh happy day! For Nicholas and I it was the first time that we could bring an owner together for a live video meeting with their special four legged furry friend. You can’t say Buddy Bacon isn’t on the leading edge of technology for his clients! When Molly heard her Mama’s voice and saw her face on the screen she even kissed the phone!
We have a gorgeous new waterfront property coming up this week in Quispamsis with eight acres on the water and over 1000 feet frontage. This property is a nature lover’s or four-legged friend’s dream with complete privacy, tons of groomed trails, a spring-fed pond, one -level ranch-style home, salt-water pool and even a built-in commercial quality stainless steel dog bath! Wouldn’t Nicholas and I love to have that bath here at home! Watch this site for more details.
Hope to see you soon! Remember to keep social distancing & wear your mask! We’ll get through this together.

We’re all set for the Easter Bunny! The guy is as sneaky as Santa Paws as he quietly sneaks in somehow in the night and leaves us goodies! As hard as we try we just can’t seem to catch him! Nicholas is hoping for a nice squeeky ball and I’ve got paws crossed and hoping for a big knuckle bone!!! Mama is looking for some new spring clothes and Papa always enjoys a nice chocolate bunny! We were busy outside last weekend putting up our Easter wreath on the front door, our big wall wreath for spring and Nicholas changed his little flag at the front walk from St Paddy’s Day to Spring! If the weather stays nice this weekend we’ll be doing some well-needed yard work. Mama says we make an awful mess in the yard over the winter and I suppose we’ll have to listen to her bellyache about that a bit while she cleans it up. What’s a guy supposed to do?
We were so happy to have a nice visit with Lisa and Jamie Guidry last weekend as I assisted in helping Mama put the SOLD sign up on their house at 35 Perry Court MLS#NB 054378! They are two of Mama’s very favourite clients and this was the fifth house she sold for them. Jamie was super excited that his house went for $65,000 over the asking price and he came out to help us put up the SOLD sign! Congratulations Jamie & Lisa!!! Lisa is a fantastic cook and during our visit she gave me one of her homemade oatmeal cookies fresh out of the oven as a special treat for my part in the sale, promoting the place on my blog, etc.! Man, this lady can cook, she could have her own bake shop and guess who’d be first in line at the door? You bet your boots, it would be Big Buddy Bacon (and Nicholas close behind)!!!
