Back to the Grind!

photoHello People!

Well I survived another week and we are all getting back into the groove of life.  I am missing my vacation, but enjoying all my kitchen time with the parentals as they are working on food and recipes.  I can tell the holidays are in the air because I smell all the good spices.

As always, I am ready for a snack.  Dad was trying a new recipe today for a Thanksgiving blog and I got a treat…you see an egg rolled on to the ground and I was there right away.  Of course my new nickname is Rocky Balboa and I have no idea what that is about.

photo-2Any who, Mom spoke again last week for LA Best Babies on Motivational Interviewing and Dad was finishing up pictures for our gluten free cookie book.  I just like to hang out, and when I think Dad needs a break I start barking to look for PITA and that just makes him crazy.  Let’s just say it gets his attention.

OK, I am tired and need to get going to eat my cooling diet…yep due to my poor immune system I get raw turkey, broccoli and my high in protein dog food called Nutrisca Salmon and Chickpea Recipe.  It sure does make me happy.

Peace!

Perry’s Vacation

photo-1I know, I know it has been a long time but I just have to tell you that it is because I went on VACATION people!

It was so much fun, I just don’t know where to start…

As you might remember my vacation did not get off to a stellar start since I pulled Grandma down in the parking lot and all.  However, it did get much more exciting after that.

When I got to the Grandunits ranch things got much happier.  The parentals had left and I was free to relish in the country and the joys of being spoiled.

Grandpa B put out a fence so I was able to not get lost.  It was so cool because I figured out how to open the door and go outside ANYTIME I wanted.  So they just left the door open and I went to and fro.  IT WAS AWESOME.  Yeah like that will ever happen here at my house!

Next I got to hang out at a real day school  – Thousand Hills Pet Resort – in the country where all the dogs ran around, hung out and just got to play in the dirt – no concrete play yard there.  I cannot wait to go back there!

Now you all know how much I love food.  I felt like I was at a 5 Star hotel.  The Grandunits know how to make a spread.  I was so spoiled that I even got a bedtime cookies.

I did get into trouble a few times…it is apparent I am not a cat person.  As much as I would like a little fluffy friend I just cannot resist chasing them around.  But for the most part I was puppy perfect.

However, I have to admit I did miss Mom and Dad just a little, and the next thing I knew we pulled up in the truck I love so much and I saw my car!

I waited nicely and got out of the truck with my no pulley collar…yep folks…I am a reformed grandma puller.  I have learned my lesson.

Well I saw Dad and was excited to see him, but knew it was afternoon snack time so I would catch up with him later.  The next thing I know is Dad is trying to grab my back leg.  What, postponement of snack?

Yep, problem was my back leg has a huge owie on it.  The joint is swollen with an abscess or something and I have a skin problem.  I heard them talking about maybe a staph infection.  Great- another visit to the doctor’s…but hey this is my SLO doctor, Dr. Linda Powers at San Luis Obispo Veterinary.  She is awesome and a funny lady.  Plus I was able to stock up on one of my favorite snacks, Hypoallergenic Treats, by Hills.  Yummy.

photoFinally after all was said and done Dad and I drove back to the big city.  It was a long drive but we made it.  I was so happy to see Mom and I did a dance around for 5 minutes.

However, I thought I would have the luxury of gently getting back to my routine and was enjoying my time on the back porch.  Two seconds later PITA the squirrel came up real close and started to screech at me.  Game on rodent!  Ever since I got back he has been getting me into trouble as I have been barking up a storm.  Don’t mess with my yard!

Finally, the entire family is busy with getting the electronic gluten-free healthy cookie book ready.  Mom made the Lemon Zesties and dark chocolate truffles again for pictures this week so I was VERY happy being the foodie that I am!

Well, this was a long note but too much to share.  Until the next time we meet….PEACE!
