Nicholas and I are sooooo excited! Charlie got a new dog today! After a two-year search for just the right pooch, our friend Charlie picked up his new rescue dog. He’s one of the rescues from Texas where so many poor fur babies have been stranded on the streets after this last hurricane. He seems to be part miniature schnauzer, part Jack Russel and weighs 30 pounds. He’s super smart, friendly and cute! We’re so very proud of Charlie that he would reach out and rescue this beautiful boy. We’re anxiously waiting to see what Charlie will name him as he didn’t come with a name but at $500 he does have all his shots, is neutered and microchipped. Charlie was out shopping for the little guy yesterday picking up a new bed, retractable leash, liver treats (my personal favourite, I’m jealous) and a healthy variety of food. As a lifelong dog lover Charlie will take excellent care of his new fur baby starting with a long walk each morning, drives in the car and accompanying him almost everywhere! He’ll be part of our team and Nicholas and I are anxious to show him the ropes. This little guy may not know it yet but he just won the lotto! We’ve got a special welcome surprise all ready for him. Nicholas and I just can’t wait to meet him (hopefully this week) and be the first to say “Welcome to New Brunswick, we’re so happy you’re here and welcome to the team!”
We have an attractive new listing at 60 Maliseet Drive in Rothesay, MLS#NB049150 Offered at $449,000. This one and a half storey home is on a half-acre+ private lot and comes with beach right just a five minute walk down the street! It has a large great room with fireplace, spacious eat-in custom kitchen and three bedrooms main floor including the master bedroom suite. The second floor is a large fourth bedroom guest suite with sitting area, bedroom area, four-piece bath, storage room and balcony. I’m excited about two things; first the in-floor hot water heating, really great if your four-legged furry friend has any arthritis and the ductless heat pump suppling air conditioning in the warm summer months! And second, the beach rights for great swimming, boating and relaxing twilight evening as you watch the sun set over the river. All the benefits of waterfront living without the high cost attached!
We hit the beach yesterday for what could be one of our last trips to the Bay of Fundy this year! All depends on the weather as our nights cool down but our days have stayed warm. We went to Carrying Cove Beach at New River where four-legged friends can have a good run and a refreshing swim. I jumped out of the truck and just ran for the water. There’s nothing that calls to me stronger then the fresh sea air. I jumped right in with powerful stokes gliding up and down the shore. Nicholas came in to his belly as he enjoys warmer water more. He did grab a huge stick and carried it to the beach edge which we both had a good chew on. Mama and Papa caught up with several old friends that happened along. It was warm but windy and we all enjoy a beautiful New Brunswick day. Nicholas and I slept all the way home in the truck, had a good supper and then another snooze. All that swimming was tiring but we love it.
You’ve never heard us talk about it before but did you know that Mama loves cats too? Nicholas and I have never had a cat as part of our family but she had many cats her entire life before we arrived. She’s been talking to Papa about getting another but he says two big dogs are enough for now. From what we can gather a guy named William was her favourite! He was a big long haired tabby that she rescued as a 6 week old kitten from a barn near Bloomfield. William’s mother had four kittens but only enough milk for three so Mama brought him home and they were enseparable for 21 years! Yes you are reading this right, William lived a long and healthy life for 21 years and was never sick a day and never looked old. Mama loved him to pieces and we wish we could have met him. See his handsome pic below. He’s sixteen in this picture!
Have a great week and we’ll be talking with you soon.
