About Perry’s Parents

Susan Dopart and Jeffrey Batchelor are my parents.

Susan is a Registered Dietitian, Exercise Physiologist and Certified Diabetes Educator and has a goal of keeping me healthy.  She specializes in medical nutrition-related issues, including diabetes and endocrinology, heart disease, weight management, cancer, pregnancy, infertility, PCOS, and exercise nutrition. She started this blog to find out how to translate her love for healthy eating into healthy eating for dogs.  Susan wrote a book called A Recipe for Life by the Doctor’s Dietitian , and a book on healthy eating for pregnant mom’s called Healthy You, Healthy Baby:  A mother’s guide to gestational diabetes.  Her new book is A Healthy Baker’s Dozen that has lots of healthy yummy treats! Maybe she’ll write a book on healthy eating for dogs.  For now, she’s busy figuring out how to train and feed me.

 Jeffrey is a photographer and organizer.  He has taken some cool pictures of me and plans to make me a “show dog”  for pictures.

Jeffrey is primarily responsible for training me and trying to help me behave.  He organizes a lot of people’s lives and tries to keep me on a schedule most of the time.  We will see how long that lasts…

  1. You guys are too cute! (and so is Perry). Very entertaining blog. This must be what Perry is thinking I am sure. Love the orange flower in mouth picture! Jeffrey can you take a picture of me with an orange flower in my mouth? (I doubt I would look as cute….)

  2. i can’t wait to read more of Perry’s adventures and watch him grow. Looks like he is making a joyful noise in the Dopart-Bachelor house.
