Well Christmas came and went and I survived being away from the parental units. Yep I survived…I did run a lot and lost a few pounds (Mom says I’m “insulin-sensitive vs. her and Dad being “insulin-resistant” so I lose weight quickly – once again another way canines are the preferred species).
Now I am back home eating like a champ to get my fighting weight back on since I did get a little skinny. Unfortunately, it is not by eating junk food as Mom has a close eye on my healthy treats.
Southern California’s weather has been a bit schizophrenic with one day like summer and the next winter but it doesn’t matter since my life of luxury continues. However, being away and sleeping in a confined space I am sure glad I am home with my big comfy chair. I like the country but I like the comforts of home. That said the parentals did bring me a gift, which I love, a Harry Barker toss and tug rope toy. Mom thought it would be good for me since it’s made of cotton and is free of bad things that make canines sick.
Why do I love my new toy so much? Because apparently Dad was not thinking of the damage this toy can cause. When I am bored I rummage through my toy box and bring toys to Dad.
I usually wait until he is on the phone or doing something important. I then come to him running with toy in mouth and try and thrust it into his hands. This method gets him going and he usually ends up playing tug of war, WHICH I LOVE PEOPLE!
This gets Mom a little irritated and she usually says, “no playing in the house Jeffrey Michael.” When the middle name is used it means trouble. Perry 1 and Dad a big fat 0.
OK, sorry I digressed – so they got me a rope toy with a hug ball on the end. They thought I would just chew on the ball and Dad would pull by the handle.
Seriously? I am all about holding onto the handle and shaking my head all around so the ball hits everything. That’s right folks – my own wrecking ball…Miley Cyrus has nothing on me.
I do know how to behave – it’s just whether I decide to do it and how many walks Dad decides to take me on to tire me out.
Catch you after the first of the year. Remember my 2 year old birthday is less then two weeks away so that limits your shopping days.
Peace and good Health in 2014!
