As you can imagine, this week's full potential may have been buried... by the crazy amount of snow we received! I'm not sure if you're a fan of Game of Thrones, but I saw a meme earlier in the week, and it was captioned perfectly for Halifax; "Winter is coming. The Entire thing, All at once. In one weekend". Sure it was mostly during the week, but it definitely struck a chord. As you can imagine, there is bound to be a few things that were affected by the copious amount of white stuff we received, but not as much as you would expect. Sellers seemed to be the ones shying away from the storm, and who could blame them? "All that shovelling, and I have to leave the house for showings, yeah, I'll hold off a couple more weeks thank you". All the while Buyers are still out there like "so I brought this shovel and snow shoes for our viewings, just need you to bring the flashlight". All jokes aside, activity is still trucking along, and regardless of the weather outside, people are still very active in their search. Of course, weather is a passing event, and so too is the pile of white stuff that currently litters the streets. When it clears, I close my eyes, and I can imagine warm sunny days and a hot Spring market in the near future! Time will tell if thats just a mirage, or reality. Stay tuned to find out! Thanks for stopping by!
Tyson: Please I need a loving home
Very loving, affectionate , neutered, vaccinated, fit and healthy 8 yr old am staff . walks great on his gentle leader . Tyson is a Victim of the BLS in Montreal.
He has in his past lived with a very submissive female dog but we feel he needs to be the only pet due to a prey drive and selectiveness. He has lived with two boys ages 10 and 12 in a foster home . Tyson has car anxiety so it would not be ideal pet if you need a dog to travel a lot.
This "cuddly companion" is available through Good Bones Dog Rescue, a non profit rescue organization from Halifax, Nova Scotia. More info about him, other adoptable's looking for their furever home, and ways to help or donate can be found by clicking HERE
