Tis the Post Turkey Day Recap

IMG_3072I had on my mischievous cap during this season. It all started with that lonely cube of butter hidden on the counter wrapped in holiday foil…

It was so appealing – the shiny paper, beautiful yellow ball  of wonderful fat I haven’t had in a while.

Because I am smarter then Dad, I just laid in wait until the perfect moment arose and bam, I was counter surfing covert style. He was “multi-tasking” and was out of the room for a minute and I scored the prize.

Of course I got a crate time out…actually I put myself in the crate and he came looking for me. He found the butter foil and I was caught.

The next day I was hanging out with Dad while he was making corn bread from scratch.  It was taking him forever to make that delicious gluten free corn bread stuffing and Casa de Perry smelt heavenly. After it cooled on top of the fridge, he wrapped it all up and like a fool hid it behind the mixer. Now that is pretty far for even for my super, stretching capabilities.

I again went into stealth mood…wonder, smell, watch and wait.

I was so good that I did not bark when that Sherlock Holmes dog next store tried to antagonize me. Dad gave me one of my Dental Bones, which are 100% natural, no artificial ingredients, gluten free and made in the USA. I love them!

Shortly after that went down he left to go get something out of the garage. When he came back in he had a big surprise!  Isn’t that photo great? Yep that’s right – I got up in the cornbread and had me a second scooby snack. This was followed with “CRATE!”

The next day was the big Turkey Day. Mom was home and she was monitoring me like a hawk since she is ON to me unfortunately. I did get a few treats but nothing like before.

We had an enjoyable holiday but are working on some new adventures. Mom will be doing some Motivational Interviewing webinars, which I like as she will be home and I will get to lounge with her in the office. I’m still not sure why others need motivation since I need none but again we know canines are superior to humans, and us Weims are the smartest breed..

Hope you all had a nice turkey day and if you have extra butter to spare send it over – covertly of course.

The weather has been colder in Santa Monica so the Weather Weimaraner reports a cooler high of 60 degrees today.  Our house is quite chilly so please send blankets but remember to wrap butter in between.

Love,

Perry

Check out my SmartRoller Site!

IMG_2194It is getting darker and colder…but this doesn’t change the fact that I still want to get up early for FOOD!

On a celebrity note I have become the face of the Smartroller so check out MY site!  I am a little backed up with signing autographs as my paws are tired.  I know Mom brags about her friend Stacy and this roller she invented which helps her back, neck, hips but it’s really all about me.  When Mom is not using it I use it to stretch my legs since chasing squirrels can get tiring.

Mom, Dad and I finished up the 1,200 Thanksgiving cards and sent them out. It was fun especially when I got into a few and dragged them into the backyard. So if you are one of the lucky ones with my mark congratulations.

We will be busy for the next few weeks as we are trying to prepare for the holidays. I am starting to understand what this hustle and bustle is all about. We are always on the go.

On that note I would encourage all of you to pick up A Healthy Baker’s Dozen not only as gifts but for yourselves. There are great gluten-free cookie recipes and even a healthy dog recipe for all me fellow canines out there.  Mom has yet to bake me some this year but I know the ingredients are in the house so hopefully soon!

OK, I need to crawl back under the blanket as I am getting a little chilled and I do not want the parentals to try to dress me up with another outfit like Halloween.

On the political front the race continues to ebb and flow and yes Trump’s hair is still there. But what has been more fun to watch is all the stuff about the red cup at Starbucks. I would love to just tear into one.

The fall temp in Santa Monica was a blustery 65 degrees today.  We actually had to turn on the heat tonight – something that has not happened here for many moons!

Peace!

Zade and Me

IMG_2799Halloween came and went and the count down towards Turkey day is on.

Today godchild Zade came over for his first official Trick or Treat outing. He is now walking or should I say running and I had to pull hard on the leash to keep up with him. He was very cute as he was trying to trade what he had for what a person was trying to give him.  I’m hoping his spirit of giving continues so I can have more treats.

Of course I wore my scary skeleton costume that glows in the dark and yes the people wanted pets and gave me the accolades that I so deserve.  I tried to get out of the dress up thing but Dad said if I wanted to go trick or treating with Zade I had to “participate.”

Mom has been working on her MI stuff. She is going to start doing webinars that will help people continue to learn and brush up on there Motivational Interviewing skills from their home. Great idea…learning about reflective listening all the while wearing your pajamas.

Dad has been busy with long days at work so I have had a chance to go to the club to visit my friends –better than sitting at home since my own company is sometimes boring. However, I can now report I am up to five and half hours by myself not in the crate. I hear them talk about how I am growing up and becoming a big dog.

The weather has been windy in the Santa Monica and the warm temps continue to be in the 80’s so hopefully we will actually have a fall and not just skip to winer.

Oh yeah the time change should be a fun adjustment for the parentals as I am up before the crack of dawn – I figured breakfast now starts at 5 am, right?
