Blogging With Buddy March 20, 2020

Are you practicing social distancing?  Keeping your hands away from your face?  Washing your hands constantly?  These are remarkable times we’re in.  As the experts and doctors keep telling us, it’s of outmost importance to follow these simple rules not only for your own health but of those you know and love.  Nicholas and I have been spending a lot of time in our yard just getting fresh air and having some fun playing in what’s left of a bit of snow.  Mama and Papa have been staying so close to home, only venturing out for essentials and taking us on our daily walks.  It’s kind of eerie out as when we walk we’re not seeing any neighbours, or other people, no cars go by, we haven’t seen other four legged furry friends in over a week (that was our sweet little neighbour, Duff Black).  Mama says the experts are saying it’s important to get out there and walk, breathing deeply the fresh air for your mental health as well as your physical health.  Nothing feels better than a good walk and we agree!  She read that back during the Spanish flu in 1918 doctors found that patients got better much quicker who enjoyed some fresh air each day.  Since Mama has worked from home for many years her routine has not been affected much through the day,  with computers and smart phones business continues on line, by text, email, messenger, etc.  TV has been rather boring at night so she’s pulled out a few good movies, we’ve enjoyed.  We understand that it’s hard to keep yourself isolated, after all, we’re social creatures but it’s vitally important right now and this won’t last forever.

Our thoughts and prayers are with our clients who are out of the country at this time and not able to get back to New Brunswick.  Some are in the USA and some are overseas.  Please know that we’re thinking of you and praying for your safe return.

Due to Covid-19 we have suspended all open houses until further notice from the government to inform us that it’s safe.  The safety of our clients is of outmost importance to us in these unusual times we’re living.  You won’t be seeing Nicholas and I out and about in our red truck as we’re following the rules and staying home.  Mama wipes our paws too when we come in from outdoors.  As they say, “This too will pass”.  So relax, enjoy some down time as much as you can and as the English say, “Stay calm and carry on”.  In this case ‘carry on’ means staying close to home.  Stay safe!

Your pal,
