The length of time our sun is out is getting shorter and the morning frosts have been more severe but Fall is still my favourite time of year. The darkness coming earlier makes evenings long and enjoyable in front of the fireplace…a bit more time for conversation, TV programs, reading books or just quietly brushing out my dog. As our busy season transitions into schedule appointments, instead of last minute urgent showings, my days are much less stressful and allows me to spend more time with each of my clients.
As I stated in my last blog I was about to list a cottage on Lake Cecebe. It is on the MLS now and my web site to have a look at the great value this property has to offer. Listed at $379,900
Two weeks has past since my sweet dog Caz past away and Corona and I miss her every day. I have decided to get another Bouvier puppy and have picked one that will be coming home with us on November 16th. She is all black and cute as a button but she will grow into a big strong Bouvier like Corona. I had a difficult time finding a breeder that leaves the ears natural instead of cropping. I think Europe may be right not allowing the natural dog be altered…it is considered cruel which I believe is very true. Just my opinion and I still have the tail docked as most breeders have them done before they are 4 days old so I have never had the option of being able to make that decision. Removing the tails on puppies is also not so traumatic ( elastic bands on the tail just a few hours after birth to restrict blood flow so the end of tails fall off) however surgery on the ears is done when the puppies are stronger and weigh enough to be safe with the surgery so it is much more painful.
Enough on Dog stories, on to technology. At the office today we all had a very challenging morning. My email was hacked and sent out a virus email to all my clients, colleagues, friends and family. What a stressful task to contact as many as we could via
phone and text to warn them not to open that email sent that appeared to be business. Thanks to Michelle my admin who quickly contacted most of the targeted people and I corrected the issue to stop anything further from being sent. Then this afternoon my clients came in to sign an offer and my one computer would not connect to the printer. I depend so heavily on technology that when it doesn’t work it practically sends me into a panic. With everything resolved this evening I certainly hope for a quiet, boring day tomorrow.
