Blogging with Buddy, June 6th, 2014

What the heck is going on? Mama’s out showing houses and writing offers like crazy! She says it must be something in the drinking water because everyone wants to write an offer and they want to write it “right now”! The little guy (Nicholas) was whining but I’m good at calming him down. Besides Heather taking good care of us through the day, we’re good company for each other, play hard, rest, run as fast as you can, rest, have a wrestling match, need more rest! Mama says she hasn’t been this busy for about four years and it’s mostly the high-end properties that are the hottest right now. The DuPont Registry predicted that the Baby Boomers would rule in 2014, rewarding themselves for all their hard work by finally upgrading and buying their Dream Homes with cash offers and that’s exactly what’s happening here! Mama has broken a few of her own sales records lately but more on that later!

The Platinum Team has been busy too! (I call them the Dream Team because as team mascot Big Buddy’s part of it too!)We have a new listing at 31 Fox Point in Drury Cove and another on Deerwood with an awesome panoramic water view in Millidgeville.  We are hosting an open house in a nice new construction spec home at 120 Meredith Avenue on Sunday. Steven is as busy as a bee with a new 2-family listing on Westmorland Road, east and a luxury waterfront condo at 21 Upper Deck in Drury Cove where he’s having an open house this Sunday 2-4pm as well. The crowds they’ve been getting at their open houses is wild! Like Mama says, there’s something in the drinking water! Drop by and say “Hello”, they’ll be happy to show you around!

Not sure how but Nicholas lost every single one of his six to eight plus rubber balls right here in the yard last week. The guy is totally obsessed with the game of fetch and he was without a ball since last Monday!  Driving us all ballistic! Thank heavens Mama was able stop at Pet Coral in Quispamsis between appointments yesterday to pick us up a new ball! The girl was so helpful and even though they were closing when Mama arrived she gladly stayed a few moments extra so that Mama could grab that new ball and a few treats for us!  Nicolas can hardly stand it because it’s not just any ball; it’s the RuffDawg XL which bounces like crazy and floats like a boat so we can take it to the beach!!! There is no way Big Buddy Bacon is going to fetch a ball; if you throw it; you’d better plan on going to get it!  If it goes in the water I’ll bring it to the shore but I’m not giving it back. I’d rather run, roll in the grass, chew my new bone or just continue doing my favourite thing; Swim, swim, swim but I’m not fetching a ball! I think the little guy buried the others and has forgotten where! (Maybe I buried a few and have forgotten too). No matter how busy Mama is she always plays fetch with us at least once a day, usually at dusk and if she’s not going flat out, in the early morning as well about 6:30 or 7am. All week we couldn’t even play with our dear friend Everett who usually stops in on his way to Tim’s for a good game of fetch. We love Everett, he plays with us almost every day, buys us great toys, even Nicholas’ all-time favourite ball, the famous Blue Ball was a gift from Everett. It’s the best, rolls fast and bounces high! It’s amazing the way the little guy can jump so high in the air and catch that ball before it even hits the ground!  Super duck live! Easy to see the Border Collie in him.  As a pup Nicholas played a lot with the athlete of athletes “Thunder”, a pure bred Scottish variety of Border Collie. Nobody but nobody runs jumps or fetches like Thunder. No doubt about it Nicholas was taught by the best! And Thunder was so kind that he’d catch the ball and pass it to young Nicholas to fetch back (not many boys would do that)! I take a different approach, keep cool and play the out-field! When Nicholas misses it, I just open my big mouth and plop the ball falls right in. (Chuckle, chuckle), no running, no panting, no effort, just plop, I’ve got the famous Blue Ball with very little effort! And that folks is the way it’s done. Nicholas you’re going on the watch and learn program with Big Buddy Bacon!
