The market is remaining slow but steady as we wind up the year. Prices are holding fairly steady and there is still a strong shortage of listings. If you were ever thinking of selling your house there couldn’t be a better time with no competition and strong prices! Call Mama or Charlie today for details.
I’m trying to adjust to the cold temperatures which seem to hit us overnight! I don’t remember such a warm start to November and then bam it’s below freezing every day. I’m not staying out as long as I was and Mama puts my nice warm sweater on me. We’ve been walking every day and a few days when the wind was blowing strong up from the river I could hear her grumbling under her breath. I’ll tell you I felt it too and didn’t waste any time on the walk but hustled right along!
I was so excited this week when my new access ramp arrived from Amazon! I’ve been finding it harder to jump in and out of the truck (I’ll be eleven on Christmas) so Mama was on the search for the perfect ramp. She checked out all the local stores as she prefers to purchase locally but she wanted one that was longer with a more gentle rise, not too steep for me. The one she found is six feet long, telescopic so it folds into the back of the truck, extra wide, non-skid and best of all its aluminium, light weight and easy for her to handle (with a handle no less). So it arrives Tuesday morning and we start the training (it came with instructions). First day we lay it on the floor in the foyer on the rug and I walk up and down while it’s still just flat. Helped a lot that Mama had treats on it so I licked them up as I walk :-). Mama says that I took to it like a duck to water! Then over the next three days we raised it to the first step of the staircase. No problem, then the second step and the third! I’d say I’m onto it and Mama says this weekend we’re going to try it out on the truck! Wish me luck.
I’m excited about the new listing Charlie and Sparky have in Sussex at 185 Pleasant Avenue, MLS# NB082113, offered at $850,000. This is a beautiful property on 6.08 private acres at the end of a cul de sac. This highend home is in mint condition and with 3600 sq ft of living space, two cosy fireplaces, huge wrap around veranda and lots of room to run and play, it’s my kind of home!

I’ll really be touring around with Mama and Papa now with my new easy access ramp so if you see me be sure to come over to say hi. Keep in mind ladies, I’m going to sneek a kiss if I can!
Remembrance Day is tomorrow and it’s so very important for us to take a moment to reflect on the brave souls that gave up their lives for us to retain our freedom! Canadians my Mama’s age have never known war, but we see the horror through movies and documentaries on TV. We see the devastation and suffering people went through and we know these brave souls gave us the ultimate scarifice. May we and future generations never forget!
Lest We Forget
I had a great time at dusk last night running on the golf course! Mama’s brother, Uncle Tom came over at four o’clock to walk with us. We crossed the little bridge behind our house and of course I did not have my invisible fence collar on. I stopped before the line and wait for Mama to give me the signal that all is clear. “Free dog” she smiles at me and away I go! We are all alone on the course and have a nice walk across the beautiful green fields, around the large pond and back across the little stone bridge. The sun is setting and Uncle Tom can’t believe how beautifully the sun is setting over the river. He hasn’t been here with us before. He snaps lots of scenic pictures and takes a selfie with Mama while she takes pictures of me. I’m not one to pose for a picture so she has to be quick to get my best angle, haha.
Then just as I was heading back to my house, low and behold I see this gorgeous blond running across the field behind my house! It was Chewy, my golden retriever neighbour. I’ve never seen her out here before. Her family were throwing a ball for her and you know me with a ball, I take off wide open and snatch it! Chewy was so busy saying hello to Mama that she didn’t notice at first. Then I wouldn’t give the ball back (I hate giving up a ball, even if it’s not mine) but Mama said “drop it” so I did. At five years old Chewy is faster than me but she gets distracted easily and I dive in for the catch! I’ll be looking for her now that I know she goes out there!
Nicholas out for a run.

Wishing you a relaxing long weekend and I hope to see you soon!
I’m ready to turn the clock back this Saturday night. Don’t forget. I love having the extra hour (have never been an early bird) but I hate the fact that it will be dark by 5pm!!! That makes it so much harder for Mama to take me on my walks as they’ll now have to be before supper. I wish they’d stop this insane practice, Mama and Papa agree!
I had a great time Halloween! I was dressed as a bumble bee (looked good with y black fur). I didn’t mind the wings and the bubble skirt but I hate the head band with the antennae! We had 35 treaters come to the house (gone are the days of 135 treaters). I greeted them all with Mama and Papa. They loved my costume and thought I looked cute. I really enjoyed seeing all the kids. Some of them I recognized and some I didn’t. Mama said I was a very good boy with the treaters. Papa gave out the treats, it’s his job every year. The kids say he’s known for good treats!
Congratulations to our sellers and buyers with three houses closing within the week! It’s been great working with these wonderful people. Makes Mama’s job a real joy!

Loving this gorgeous weather. My coat is fairly fine and I don’t deal with cold weather that well. So I love the warmer weather and sunshine. Mama says she can’t remember a November as warm and beautiful as this one is. I’ll take it any day and hope it lasts a while longer. I’ve been travelling in the truck, visiting clients homes, putting up sold signs, picking up groceries, etc. Mama has been taking me with her a lot and I really like it. People come over to say hello and my big fluffy tale is just a wagging. I sneak a kiss whenever I can too!
Hope you have a good week and I’ll talk with you soon.
