In case you’ve forgotten on January 9th, 3 years ago, I was born as a runt to bring joy, love and chaos into the world. Now we all know I’m a little narcissistic, but nonetheless I do strive to bring happiness and a smile to those who come across my path. I do realize I have grandiose thoughts most of the time, but that’s why I have the parentals around to keep me in balance.
Let’s recap my progress this year:
1. As of this morning, I actually was able to go on a walk with Mom and did not pull for the whole first 10 minutes. Now I was being good since it was Mom and Dad was home so I behaved more than usual.
2. My recall is slowly improving and I actually put myself to bed last night without being prompted.
3. I don’t require as much supervision and when I do steal a pen I crunch it less often – it’s more about getting attention from Dad since I steal it and run in my crate. I like to think of it as kind of cat and mouse game, although none of those species live in our house, thank goodness.
4. I still need improvement on: sleeping in, since I still get up at the crack of dawn, barking at dogs who walk by my turf, and making more noise than the parentals feel comfortable with when there is a creature in our back yard such as a possum or a squirrel (although the toy squirrel Auntie Chris brought last week has helped and I play with it every day).
When I was supposed to be sleeping last night I did hear Dad say I am becoming a very good dog, and I must be doing something right since the treats have been better than usual.
I want to thank everyone who follows me and my birthday wish is not so much for bones and treats but that each of you has a prosperous 2015. I especially want to thank my fans in the 73 countries who follow me. That is what I will wish for when I blow out the candle on my bone later this week! It’s been quite chilly this week in Santa Monica and I’ve had to hide under the Auntie Tooter blanket more than usual but I’m sure she will like hearing that!
Love Perry AKA the Weather Weimaraner
Happy Birthday you Handsome Hound! I told your parents it would take 3 years for them to discover the dog that you would become and by golly you’ve made them proud! I take a teeny bit of credit for suggesting that your mother blog about you and call it Perry’s Pate. And now you are a superstar! Don’t forget the little pups when you hit the big screen out there in Hollywood. Love from the Liquori’s in Gainesville, Fla.
Yes – Auntie Deb – you ARE the main reason I am able to write my blog – thank you so much – that is a birthday gift in itself. Mom says she misses you and wish you would visit, but the greater reason for the visit is to meet ME as I am the most important in this household. Sending you a big paw hug!!
Happy Birthday Perry!!! Cousin Maggie is starting to do better too! But like you, she barks at everything outside. Uncle Pat
