Let me be the first to say “Happy Mother’s Day”! Nicholas and I hope all you furry friends are on your best behaviour this Sunday and do something nice with your Mama. Daddy is taking our Mama to the Mother’s Day Brunch at the Union Club (we’re hoping for a doggy bag, ha ha), always a treat with their classic ambiance, great food and good chef! When it’s nice out on Saturday afternoon, we are all going for a nice long walk, just spending quality family time. Mama is showing high-end homes in Millidgeville, Quispamsis and Rothesay to a qualified buyer Friday night but she has Saturday off.
Daddy fertilized our lawn earlier this week and now with the rain our grass is as green as Ireland (or so I’m told, I’ve only seen it in pictures). He was sure to use a pet friendly variety, so important so that our paws don’t get a chemical burn. Our trees and shrubs are starting to bud out, our Star Magnolias have huge buds (Cup & Saucer Magnolia are way behind) and our Forsythia is in full bloom. Check out our pic below.
We got new balls this week. It’s all I can do to keep mine away from Nicholas as he wants them all! The guy just goes nuts, sneaking around me just hoping I’ll lose focus and take my eye off the ball for one second! If he can get it, then he stock piles them, hordes them all to himself. He buries them in the yard, the garden, in the house, under the sofa and in our toy box. Makes it really hard for Buddy Bacon to have a nice ball to play with. You have to see it to believe it. We had to stop going to the Quispamsis Dog Park because he is so fast he can easily steal the others dogs’ balls and then he won’t give them back. Of course everyone gets all upset, you can’t blame them. We’ve counted as many as four in his mouth at the same time. Mama was nervous that he’d swallow one by mistake, so we stopped going! You really ruined that fun Nicholas!
Since it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday the team won’t be having open houses that day but Steven our Host with the Most is still having one on Saturday 2pm – 4pm at 171 Belmont Street in East Saint John off Mt Pleasant Avenue priced at $149,000. This two-story home is filled with character and charm and features a covered porch, 3 bedroom 1 ½ baths, eat-in kitchen with butler’s pantry, main floor laundry, gleaming hardwood flooring, solid wood trim and tasteful paint colours throughout. The large lot is fully landscaped, fenced (good for us puppies and toddlers) and boasts majestic mature trees and shrubs plus a private patio, and meandering stone walkways. If gardening is your passion then you’ll appreciate this gardener’s paradise with beautiful perennials. Drop by to have a look and say hello to Steven while you’re there.
Have a great weekend. Supposed to hit 16C and sunny on Saturday so get out there and enjoy!
