2012 went fast too fast if you were a dog owner.
What a year in Bozeman Montana. Real estate wise,it was busy. Lot's of cash buyers and people taking advantage of the low interest rates. The winter was warm with not a lot of snow,but enough to get the skiiers out to Big Sky and enjoy it.
Many great deals on foreclosures,short sales(for those who have time to wait)
Fires throughout the state all summer,which was a pain,yet still bikers,runners,hikers and anglers were all out taking advantage of an amazing summer with warm summer nights as well.
Everyday year after year I dog walk.Now just down to two dogs(lost my old yellow lab last summer)I still walk twice a day. Our neighborhood has a wonderful dog community. I know all of the dogs and all of the owners. It's always fun to chat and see other like minded folks happy and healthy and taking great care of their 4 legged friends. You really can tell how fast time goes by the dogs(kids too). My neighbor Ken,walks like crazy with his dog-miles a day,and so happy. A few weeks ago I saw Ken,alone,looking so sad but walking. His sweet old dog died and he looked lost. There there is Lynn with her dog -for years they walked fast and long-but the walks got shorter and the other day I saw her alone walking-tears in her eyes,but not yet ready to replace he old pal. Two other neighbors as well lost there dogs to old age.
Spring will be here soon-I will still see my dog friends walking and I sure hope they are with a new four legged friend.
I will help them adopt a wonderful dog from one of our many shelters and soon see a happy smile once more.
2013 should be a great year for at least 4 shelter dogs!
Oh yes,2013 is starting out with a bang in the real estate biz as well.
Happy new year every one. Get a dog and get walking!
