The Unwelcome Visitors

FullSizeRenderIt sure has been WARM this weekend. No matter where I try to lay down I am very hot. Even under the bed. Some El Nino!

Last weekend Dad was out-of-town so I got to go to the country and play. I love being able to run around and check out all the other dogs and sights on the farm. Maybe the parental will have a small farm for me some day. Then they can have their range free organic eggs, a big garden of healthy green vegetables and of course the little baby goats.

This last week was not without drama. I got into or actually avoided trouble. A few nights ago it was hotter than usual when I went outside before bed. As I perused the yard I realized there were some interesting visitors hanging out on our fence and it was not the squirrel or the possums from the past.

Of course I started barking up a storm, which sent Dad running out. Yes, this was at 10 PM on a school night so we all know how drawing unnecessary attention is not welcomed here at Casa de Perry. But People – it was NECESSARY! You see there were two raccoons on the fence. Not one but TWO and that increased my odds of getting one. However, that is not how it went down. Dad the downer had to get up in my situation, which made me go crazy trying to crawl up the fence.

I saw that I had done a great job at knocking the baby off. He was hanging on and then the Mom got a little testy and started to crawl down the fence in my direction.

This sort of thing just gets the adrenaline pumping but mine was not the only one. Dad was furious and took his shoe off to try to correct the situation and prevent a fight. Now that was pretty stupid because that area of the yard is where I do my evening routine.

Needless to say, Mom got involved and got me to come in the house. Still after I was locked away from the fluffy intruder I went postal pacing to and fro. That of course was not well received and Mom put me in my crate for the night.

I did not forget the visitors and as soon as I was let out that morning I went to the fence but unfortunately were gone. Bummer deal.

BTW – if you have extra ice please bring some to our Casa.   I’m rooting for air conditioning next year but I might have to get a job for that one.

Love Perry

Trump Wall has NOTHING on ME!

FullSizeRenderTrump has nothing on MY Wall!

Yes folks it is sad to say that “The Dad” decided my nonexistent “Love thy Neighbor” actions were not sufficient for this house.

Now wait, before all of you get your shorts bunched up like a political convention, hear me out.  No one hacked into my fan base or stole a speech. Worse yet we didn’t have an obnoxious parade of balloons for this wall.

This wall of chairs is to keep me from damaging the wall. I know it sounds pretty bad but let me explain myself.

Next store is this little, for lack of words ‘Sherlock Holmes,’ sort of creature. I could take him out if the Parental’s would allow but we all know that is not an option…sad face emoji.

Well every time that PITA goes out he comes real close to my house, barks at me, and has the audacity to relieve himself on MY bush. This behavior MAKES ME CRAZY PEOPLE!

IMG_4863I guess I really didn’t realize how postal I was becoming. It was not a pretty scene at all. Now we have “The Wall” and back to more training. Does this learning ever stop? At least I know that the row of chairs just drives Dad crazy…

Perry 1 – Dad 0

On a more serious note, wall or not, our wonderful friends from Italy, Antonella and Francesco, who have tried to gain legal citizenship for the least 2 years, are having to leave. They need to wait another two years in hopes of getting an opportunity to come back to the US legally. Very sad but we can always FaceTime them.  The good news is Dad did make some great food for their departing lunch and of course I had some great scooby snacks that day.

It has been VERY hot in our 100 year old house but Dad finally bought a swamp cooler so we are all a bit more comfortable.
