Once again within a blink of an eye 2015 is a memory and 2016 brings forth new adventures with my pack, the parentals.
We finished off the year with a family road trip to San Luis Obispo for some relaxation. However, it was challenging as Dad was sick and took my spot in the front seat. That’s OK, since I whined a lot to keep up with their conversation. It was a long time in the car and I wanted to get there sooner than later.
Mom took me on all my morning walks and I was greeted by my SLO friends and even got to hang out with some of the horses. It was awesome time in the country.
On one of the days Mom and Dad went to Cambria to celebrate what they did 10 years ago when they got engaged, but of course I did NOT get to go. Oh the sappiness in my family. However, this time it was OK since I got to go to Thousand Hills Pet Resort and they are always excited to see me. I played with 2 big Doberman pinscher’s who kept me on my toes.
Dad was excited since he was also able to go to Linn’s restaurant and have a piece of his favorite Olallieberry buttercream cake for a belated birthday.
All in all it was a great trip. On the way home I did share with the parental’s my feelings of not being in the front seat with both of them with a cacophony of whines. That did not go over well and heard mention of being in a crate in the future. That would really cramp my style.
The year ended with all of us in bed by 9:30 for slumber, as it has been very cold here for Santa Monica. I stirred a little at midnight when all the fireworks went off but quickly returned back to sleep, in my taco bed, which keeps me toasty.
Today is supposed to be a fresh start but I figure every morning should be a new beginning. Be kind to all people as you do not know the impact of your benevolence, cherish the important things in life such as health and loved ones, and finally, always live life as an adventure as you never want to pass up an opportunity to learn.
Happy 2016 People!
Happy New Year, Perry! Give your mom & dad a hug for Maggie and I.
