My little brother Nicholas started school Tuesday night, he’s now a little school boy! He had already been to obedience training (Daddy’s says that a joke, Mama says he’s an angel and I say now that IS a real joke) so now he is in the Beginner class for Agility Dogs. He came home sooo excited, he absolutely loves it! We thought he would. He will learn to go over jumps, through tunnels and hoops, over bridges, etc. on a set course and it’s all timed. The fastest dog wins! My money is on Nicholas; he’s fast, loves to jump and he’s super focused! Mama says when he’s ready to go into competition that Daddy and I can go to cheer him on. Daddy has a really big voice and I’ve got a really big bark so I’m sure he’ll hear us over the entire crowd, “Woof, Woof, Woof, Go Nicholas Go!”. He has a really nice teacher named Julie who is very patient and kind and the school has a huge classroom which is spotlessly clean. Nicholas made two friends at school already, Mia and Maude. Mia is a border collie who is very smart and obedient (she even gave him a kiss after one of her rounds, I think he’s sweet on her). Maude is a poodle who is super-fast and can jump like crazy! The little guy is really going to have to bring on his ‘A’ game to keep up with these two speed demons! These classes are indoors for now but in June they will move outdoors where they can enjoy the sunshine. The outdoor classes will be in Rothesay so they won’t be too far from our house. While Nicholas is at school with Mama, Daddy takes me for a nice swim in a nearby pond. This is what makes Buddy very happy, as swimming is my favorite thing to do in the whole World!
Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday, don’t forget to roll out the red carpet for your Mother’s! Daddy is taking Mama and our Auntie Blue to the Union Club for the Mother’s Day Brunch. Our friend May says it’s going to be extra special this year but she can’t let Nicholas and I in (we begged and we pleaded to no avail). We said we’ll just sneak in the back door but May said, “No way boy’s, not on my watch!” May runs a tight ship but Mama says she’ll bring us home a doggy bag! Ha, ha, Yeah!
On Saturday from 2-4pm Kim Burt is hosting an open house in a gorgeous “New Listing” custom home at 23 Cobblestone Drive in Quispamsis. This one has all the bells and whistles as well as two huge decks with water view! It’s a “Must See”! Steven will be at 25 Cameron Court in Saint John on Saturday from 12 – 2pm (note the time) in Saint John at a lovely townhouse. Don’t let the exterior deceive you from the street, this “New Listing” has a very spacious layout as you’ll see once you’re inside this open concept one-level, easy living home with convenient location. Then on Sunday from 2-4pm Steven is hosting his soon to be famous “Mother’s Day Open House with Chocolates and Roses” at 2808 Rothesay Road, Rothesay on 1.8 mature acres within walking distance to RNS and the Riverside Golf and Country Club! Let’s wish him the Luck of the Irish to repeat last year’s performance as he sold his last years “Mother’s Day Open House”, 120 Meredith Avenue, Saint John, right on the spot and all the ladies enjoyed the delicious chocolates and the beautiful roses! Drop in to say “Hello”, you’ll be glad you did!
Nicholas and I met a handsome Bernese Mountain Dog this week named “Apollo” whose mother is part of our Team Platinum, Jennifer. He came by the office with her to say “Hello”. He is super friendly, has a gorgeous coat, and like us enjoys driving in the back seat of his mother’s vehicle. He’s just young but he’s already bigger than Nicholas but not as big as Big Buddy Bacon!
Looks like we’ll be doing yard work this weekend getting our place all spruced up for summer. Mama says she’s going to buy a cart for me to pull as I’m built like a draft dog and could be a good help instead of her pushing the wheel barrow. Nicholas thinks he’s the strongest and he wants to pull the cart too! Border Collies, you just can’t keep them down! We’ve nicknamed him “Super Dog”, photo attached.
