It was just announced that the Reindeer Fun Run last November raised $27,000 for the Boys and Girls Club of the Sandhills! Congrats to all of the people and DOGS who ran and supported this great cause.
The Boys and Girls Club is a great place for kids from 5 to 18 years old to go from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on school days. They play games and sports and even have drug prevention programs. They also work on study skills, leadership, self-esteem, good health and social responsibility.
Doing all of this isn’t cheap. The cost for the Boys and Girls Club is $500 a year for each child. That is a lot of dog treats. The great thing for the kids is that it only cost them $5. So, a big Sascha “bark out” to all of you who help make this great program possible for the kids around here.
Would you like to move here and help these kids too? Call my Dad, Allan Nanney, at 910-528-1181 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 910-528-1181 end_of_the_skype_highlighting or visit his website http://www.YourPinehurstHome.com
This is a picture of my heroes, Sirius and Shadow. Their Dad, Gerry Capstaff, is also a hero! He is in the Army National Guard, a Military Policeman, and he is a Certified Firefighter and EMT. Wow and thank you Gerry!!
I bet you wonder why Sirius and Shadow are my heroes. When Gerry goes off to protect everyone in America in places like Afghanistan, Sirius and Shadow don’t have time to lay around on the couch, they have a job to do! They protect their mom, Brittney.
They protect Brittney in their new home that they found with the help of Homes for Heroes. If you have a hero in your life, have them check out http://www.HomesForHeroes.com
It has been a long time since I chatted with al of my friends. I apologize. Mom and Dad have been very busy with Homes for Heroes and haven’t been typing for me. But yesterday they met with their friends at Tangram Media and everyone decided it would be a great idea for me to start strolling with all of you again.
Tangram is a great group and just like a Tangram puzzle that has over 6500 possibilities, Jeremy, Jamie and Sven look at your business and come up with lots of possibilities to help you become more efficient. I haven’t met them but want to give a BIG Facebook Thank You to all of them.
I have so many things to catch you up on so stay tuned!!!
Glad to be back,
We live in a great country, and part of our history is just two hours away in Wilmington, NC. The USS North Carolina was commissioned 50 years ago in 1941 and was home to 2300 sailors. That sure is a lot of people to scratch behind my ears! This ship is now 50 years old and yours to enjoy right on the Cape Fear River. So, if you are tired of the beach and want to experience a part of history be sure to check it out!
And if you would like to live in a place that has so many great places to visit give my Dad, Allan Nanney, a call at 910-528-1181 and check out his website at www.YourPinehurstHome.com .

A Great Day at The Beach
Summertime is here and it sure has been hot, especially in this fur coat. But another great thing about living here is that you can just hop in the car and in two hours be at Holden Beach
. The ocean breeze feels great and the water temperatures
are in the 80’s! Playing in the waves is a whole lot better than playing with the hose in the back yard.
And before you head home stop at Provision Company for the best shrimp burger you have ever had.
If you want to live in golf heaven and this close to the ocean give my Dad, Allan Nanney, a call at 910-528-1181 and visit his website at www.YourPinehurstHome.com .
It has been more than 25 years but the neon lights are back at The Sunrise Theater in downtown Southern Pines. Boy, is it beautiful. This is the kind of thing that just makes you proud to live here. So, remember… you don’t only walk a dog in the morning, you can grab the leash and take a beautiful stroll down Broad Street and check out the new lights one of these great summer evenings.
If you really like the way downtown Southern Pines looks and you would like to move here, give my Dad, Allan Nanney, a call at 910-528-1181 and check out his website at www.YourPinehurstHome.com.
My Office Stash
It is Take Your Dog to Work Day!!! Keller Williams in Fayetteville, NC
is letting everyone bring their dog to work today.
For some dogs this is a big deal but for me it is every day. I’m one of the lucky dogs who has a Mom and Dad that work from home. I go to the office with them every single day. The picture is my stash at the office. I know it is kept in a special spot because it is right under Dad’s pictures of Coach Dean Smith. Coach Dean was so cool they even named the entire basketball arena after him.
If you are in Fayetteville today, be sure to stop at the Keller Williams office. They are having a hot dog roast to raise money for the Fayetteville Animal Protection Society and The Haven-Friends for Life. So please stop by and fill your belly and help a dog out! Weird that you are eating a hot “dog” to help a dog, isn’t it.
And if your office isn’t nice enough to let you take your dog to work today, then be sure to bring them home a stash of Milkbones and take an extra minute to scratch their belly. We love this.
