Middle range homes in Southern New Brunswick continue to fly off the shelf within days if not hours as the real estate market continues to soar!  Never have the Realtors here seen anything like it.  Our Charlie has been in real estate for over thirty years (straight out of university) and he can tell you it’s a wild ride!  He and Mama are working seven days and nights a week trying to keep up as are many of their colleagues!  Here’s one we need some help with;  Mama is working with a sweet young couple looking for their first home in the north of the city, Millidgeville, Rothesay or Quispamsis areas.  These young professionals want to be fairly close to their offices in the uptown area.  They’d like a nice yard and three bedrooms, two bathrooms would be nice but one is acceptable.  They are preapproved up to $250,000.  If you hear of anything like this, shoot me an email at and I’ll pass it on to her.

Autumn is that time of year where us furry friends can get a bit (haha) dirty with the seasonal rain with mud on the trails.  I’ve been doing a bit of research into dog baths and well-planned laundry rooms with built-in dog showers.  It’s amazing what’s out there.  Here are a few tips of great ideas I’ve seen.  Mama helped me as she had an interior design business for twenty years, The Finishing Touch, so her help was invaluable!  Thanks Mama.

Great for medium-sized dogs like this Collie.

Built in steps perfect for small and medium-sized dogs.

Great for big dogs with a low step.

This guy has it all shower, bed & laundry facilities!

How about this outdoor doggy shower?

My fav!  Perfect for us big dogs!

Hope some of these samples give you ideas to share with your Mamas and Papas.  It’s important to be a clean dog and especially have clean paws this time of year.  Don’t make a fuss like Nicholas when he’s going to have his bath or shower.  Mama has to practically drag him into our doggy shower.  Me, I love it!  I strut right in, you don’t have to ask The Bud twice!

Just a word of caution.  Be careful of tics as they come out in droves with these warmer days.  If your joints, especially front shoulders, are stiff and it pains a bit to walk, please get right over to your vet asap to be checked for lyme disease.  Its a simple blood test and your vet can give you basic results (yes or no) right there on the spot.  Most owners don’t realize that lyme disease in it’s early stages looks much like arthritis but it’s so much more dangerous and can kill you.  I hate tics!!!  Our vet says they start on slugs and then proceed to any and all mammals.  Not all carry the lyme disease and they must be on you for 24 hours before they can ingest the lyme.  So ask your Mama or Papa to check you every day to get any off as quickly as possible!

Have a great weekend enjoying this beautiful weather and colourful scenery and we’ll talk soon!
