As with all of my working instincts I feel it is my job to protect the house—Casa de Perry. That said, I have been on a full fledge patrolling and barking especially when I see other dogs outside on leashes.
Dad’s thought of introducing me to the neighborhood dogs did not really work out. I am fine when I see everyone outside, but when I am contained inside it does not bode well with me and I become pyscho Weimaraner! You can see my Gladys Kravitz picture peering out patrolling whatever comes by!
On a good note, Mom had a Motivational Interviewing speaking training on Friday at the Sportsman’s Lodge– seems like she does a lot of that. Her and Dad went to Studio City to share about MI with the people from VFED, Valley Federation of Eating Disorder Professionals.
VFED is a program for professionals who help those with eating disorders. Mom was there to help encourage them to do something she calls reflective listening. I’m not really sure what that is – I just know my name and picture were mentioned and that is all that is important since it’s all about ME!
I did hear it was a big day with lots of organizations such as Rosewood Ranch, Monarch Cove, Center for Discovery, CRC Health Group and A New Journey. I wish I was there to meet all of those cool folks but apparently I need to get my manners in check, as Dad would say.
They even had healthy eats which I MISSED out on. AND Auntie Chris was there – which I was even more bummed not seeing her but maybe she’ll make a special trip to see me soon. You may not know this but I prefer blonds and besides her hair color, Chris is an amazing therapist so maybe I’ll get some mind training after all.
Until next week people!
