There seems to be a peace about the parentals being home, food smells in the air and it being overcast. Granted it is 70 plus degrees and there seems to be no winter. I feel for all my relatives who live in the since I am NOT good in the cold.
I still get cold at night and have to be covered up a few times. I sure do have them trained, but I overheard Mom saying if I wake her up one more time at 3 am I’m going to have to go to the crate – apparently she needs her sleep time more than me.
Nonetheless, the weekend has been pretty great. Last week was the usual workweek and trying to get projects done. I hung out at my program and even got a “shampoo & set” so I would be fresh. Apparently my dog essence was a little bit much for the Frebreze-crazed father of mine.
Friday the parentals went to Beverly Hills to do some work stuff. Can you believe they did not even get me one of those cute Sprinkles cupcakes I so love? However, they did get me this cool green bone, which I love thrusting at Dad. I did hear the next time they may take me to that fancy city.
Then on Saturday it was an outing at Frontrunners to get Dad some much-needed tennis shoes (not sure why since he does not even play tennis) and the Great Earth Vitamin Store. Mom is always educating about healthy supplements and how they help with everything from nerves, to anxiety and hormones. We try to be a healthy family, although I don’t think I’m the most compliant one in the family given all “extras” that end up in my mouth throughout the day. I tend to sneak things and have a bit of what Mom would call “disordered eating.” Maybe I should go to one of those conferences with her instead of having to stay home!!
Today there was what they call home “training time.” What! I thought it was the weekend! Well Dad has this brilliant idea that I am to meet all of the dogs in the neighborhood. Yep I still have that little problem with having a bark attack when dogs walk by. His thought was that if I get to know my so-called “friends” that I will sense them and be calmer. Who is he kidding?
I wanted to send out a Happy Birthday to Grandma Evie since it was a big birthday for her and maybe soon I will get to give her a big birthday hug and kiss.
