I hear voices and they are saying something about “Paper Rehab?”
Dad is always saying to people, “when you think you can trust Perry that is when you can’t.”
Let me tell you people I showed him. Of course I was not getting nearly enough attention and affections to my liking. Dad was off doing something on the computer. Those parentals are always doing something on the computer. Well, it was quiet on the fore front so I slowly pushed the bathroom door open with my paw and snuck in there.
After I found the mecca of TP, I just could not help myself. I kept hearing the occasional “Perry what are you doing?” But of course no response…next time I will know to come out and check on him so he will leave me alone with my addiction.
The next thing I see Dad sneaking down the hallway. I was caught, but I did not run in fear. You see, I knew he would have to go get that iphone thing and take my picture. He needs to go to rehab for that addiction.
OK people, it is going to be one of those days so I must get going. I will keep you posted if I find some more trouble to get into.
I did hear that Mom is going to make some treats. I guess they are doing a healthy cookie recipe book and they may include a dog treat recipe especially for me. That ROCKS!
As you all know I have many of my favorite foods but did you know that one of my most favorite things to lick off Mom’s hands is coconut oil?
Mom likes to stir fry her broccoli in it at night or her morning eggs, but my favorite part is when she puts it on her arms and legs. I LOVE to lick it off her feet. I’m not so sure she likes that part so this morning she let me lick my OWN packet of coconut oil from her favorite company Kelapo.
Mom used to blog for them and make up fun recipes for me to get the scraps but it does not matter to me. All I care about is getting some of my OWN to lick. I got some extra this morning since Mom put it on the owie growth that is not going away in between my toes since coconut oil has healing properties – now they just have to figure out how to get me from licking it off so it can actually work….
Things are just cruising along nicely this week. Dad has been busy with his Photography class and clients, Mom is preparing to be interviewed on TV, and I have been experiencing this thing called Easter. Boy do I wish I could we could have that everyday. Today all of us got up early and went for a long walk by the beach and Santa Monica Pier. I love all the attention from my fan base. I was a little frustrated that Dad would not let me run and chase these things he called rats with wings. I think they are called pigeons and they would just taunt me by walking all around me and slowly just out of leash reach.
Because of this special day, the parental units gave me a new food to try out called Nulo, which I might add is not only very healthy but also rather tasty. I hear they may be letting me have more of it. But everything has to pass mom’s test of health.
Plus I continue to get my daily dose of marrowbones, which I cannot complain about. When I nudge dad with my noise making toys he asks me if I need a baby-sitting snack? OF COURSE I DO! I am the equivalent to the canine garbage disposal. I love the snacks and treats. However, I still get into trouble if I try to do a self-service snack on the counter.
On a bummer note, my aunty Francine, at “the Day’s” that Dad nicknamed for my puppy daycare at Centinela Pet and Supplies, found a owie on my toe. Dad is making me go to see my vet Dr. Annie Hernandez at Santa Monica Pet Center tomorrow. She took good care of my predecessor the famous George. It’s a good things she’s nice and sweet since I’m like most men in that I don’t like going to the doctor. I guess I have to be thankful I have nice people watching out for my every need. I love you Aunty Francine.
OK people, sending you bunny thoughts and chocolate kisses.
Things have been sailing along great. I continue to impress the parental units and believe I have mastered the skill of manipulation. But hey, I am Perry the super dog who all love and find irresistible.
You all know I have an aficionado for toilet paper, but my new skill is to get a roll and not destroy it or run with it, but go right up to mom and drop it in front of her feet. I thought I was going to impress her and get a treat but that did not happen. I was trying to outsmart her and say ”maybe I am ready for college?” But no luck. She told me no treats for stealing toilet paper regardless of bringing it and doing the “drop.” Oh well, maybe next time.
More importantly, since I write this healthy eating puppy blog I do know it is essential to include my daily regime of exercise, good food, nice people, rest and my vitamins. Can you believe this morning the parental units forgot my vitamins? I took it upon myself and I went into the kitchen and got the bottle right off the counter and what surprised them the most was that I opened the bottle. Those big paws come in handy at times!
Finally, I continue to try and be a good boy and daily we work on my service dog training skills. Today we went to the office to clean up after mom’s open house. I was fairly good since I like the space. I cannot wait to be able to go there more and see Mom’s patients. Maybe I can become the office butler? Wow knows, but you will be there first to know and I will make sure to tell the patients to exercise, eat healthy like me and take their vitamins!
Mom went to the Natural Foods Expo West last week and got lots of treats for Dad and finally I got to try one of MY treats. It’s called “I and love and you” dog food.
What an odd name but all I have to say is I LOVE IT!
It says it’s nude food since it has no additives, preservatives, and the one I tasted was made from grass-fed meat, something Mom is always talking about so I guess now I know why she likes it! She also told Dad it has no GMO’s whatever that means.
They let me have a free go at it and then took it away – so NOT fair! I even sat and waited patiently hoping they would notice how good I was being. Finally Mom noticed gave me some extra since I had already had my dinner. Why not more? I can always eat since I’m a foodie.
After all, I don’t write this healthy eating puppy blog for nothing! I’m always up for a snack and since Mom only lets me eat healthy treats and food I’m happy when I find one that really suits my fancy and this one sure fit the bill.
Maybe I’ll get to try another of the new treats tomorrow since after all, it is St. Patrick’s Day. I think I’m too big to go to Aunt Chris’ party this year since I’m about 60 pounds more than last year but maybe Auntie Chris will send some scoobie snacks home for me.
I know, I know it has been a long time since I have graced your presence. This time it’s the parental units’ fault – THEY went to an International Conference on Diabetes in Paris. I was left, thank goodness in Los Angeles. Can you imagine me on a plane for 11 hours? Ouch! That would definitely cramp my stretching needs.
Apparently Mom learned a lot of new things to help her patients but I don’t care all that much that – she should be going to Dog Conferences since my needs are way more important!
Anyway – while they were gone I got to play with some new friends and go on lots of walks which was pretty cool. But I was very happy to see them make it home.
Apparently I’m not being as good as when they left since I overheard Dad keep saying this is how it must be when kids come back from the grandparent’s house. Let me tell you they have been on my case to practice all of my sits, stays and lay downs. They have been way too “military” with me. If I wanted to be like that I would have enrolled in the Marines.
Life around here has returned to busy with the units working all the time, school and people coming in and out…and that’s why I love the Dopart-Batchelor house. It’s never a dull moment!
I’m almost 14 months old and have decided to be a better canine being, although I do have the occasional bouts of being a troublemaker. Here’s the current report card:
1. I play nicely at Day Care with all my friends. Here is one of my favorite friends Kayden who I love hanging out with and it’s pretty cool since when humans see us they take a double look. He’s a fellow Weimie (can you tell which one is me?) who is a year older than me but I’m BIGGER than him. I wonder why that is?
2. I drop things now except for bricks since I know it makes Dad crazy. He continues to yell “drop it” and today he told me that I would be given up for adoption if I broke my teeth because he refused he have a dog with bad teeth. Now who is narcissist? He seemed pretty serious about it so I brought it to the door and dropped it for Mom to put away. I can’t be trusted with bricks.
3. I have not touched the toilet paper for at least 4 weeks. Mom is really impressed with that one.
4. I sleep in my bed all night without a peep. A few mornings ago Mom had to be up very early for a training and I got up and then went back to bed – boy, that surprised the parental units as I’m usually always up before them.
5. I get tired by 6 pm and then just lay on “my” chair – the ottoman. It’s the only one I’m allowed on in the house so I just claim it after dinner.
6. Stealing the remote controls has dissipated and they now can be left out in plain sight.
Dad says the house is slowly being restored to it’s former state and I heard Mom telling him they can see the light at the end of puppyhood. What will I do if the puppy blog is done? I guess I’d have to graduate to an adult blog but I’m not quite sure I’m ready for that. Auntie Aileen says to give me another year.
I don’t talk all that much so I was thrilled when Mom got me a talking toy. Yes, you heard that right. It’s called a “Babble Ball.” The funny thing is Mom did not even know it talked till it she brought it home.
She just thought she was getting some cool blue ball for me. Boy, was she surprised!!
It’s says all kinds of fun things – like “you’re looking nice big doggy,” “oh you got me,” ”hey what are you doing,” and “oh lucky dog.”
Dad says the voice reminds him of Cousin Itt on some show he used to watch called The Adam’s Family.
I’m just having fun making it talk and irritating the parental units…and this time they were the ones who started it in the first place. Boy, are they naive!
One thing Mom and Dad can’t believe is how much I LOVE children. I forget I’m a puppy and just act docile and quiet when I’m around them.
This week Dad took me for a walk and we ran into a little boy who was shorter than me and he called me “horsey.”
Can you believe that? I’m not a horse but I guess some little people think I am.
The big/small visitor I had this week was Grey. He’s 5 months old so I’m not sure why he just chills in his chair. At 2 months I was running all around the house – I guess that’s why dogs are more advanced than humans.
Who needs them anyway? Resolutions were meant to be broken and I just could not help myself. There was Dad’s shoes and the insoles just sitting there waiting to be stolen – here I am gleefully running away with them.
It’s the best feeling in the world and I can really get a rile out of Dad. I haven’t broken the coveting resolution yet but there was some tempting human food on the counter this evening as dinner was being prepared. I’m not promising anything. Isn’t it canine nature to steal AND covet?
