A Visit from the Cousins

IMG_4737We got a visit from the NJ Twin Cousins Drew and Coulston.  They were in Los Angeles to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum at UCLA and then came to visit us afterward.

Dad drove them to see Pepperdine and UC Santa Barbara to see if those were colleges they might be interested in.  What?  Dad took a road trip with the cousins that I was not invited to – that was not so hospitable.

I did get some extra hugs and loves but they were hardly sufficient given their short time here.

It’s been quite warm here in Santa Monica so Dad’s taken to putting fans all over the house – maybe one day we’ll actually get air conditioning in our 100 year old house.

Until next time!

Love

Election and Summer Craziness

IMG_3126Everyone is in an uproar about the election and it is just too ugly to comment on so I will not go there. I will stay in my safe place as so many millennials require.

Today was a good ole fashion lazy day. We all went for a walk and I was very happy. The family has been busy and we have not had any “family” time so I was a happy dog. The day got better as Dad prepared a fun lunch for Auntie Chris. I got to lay outside and enjoy the day.

When the sun came out in full the Parental’s decided to give me a bath and I loved it. I have been itching a lot lately, as I have so many allergies.

I heard that we are going to have some houseguests this summer which makes me even happier since I will be annoying and try and get into the guest room. The twin cousins from New Jersey are coming out here and Dad is taking them to a few potential colleges. I did hear something about a road trip with all of them but I won’t get my hopes up. I hear the Grandunit Batchelors are coming this summer as well which makes me happy as we know I LOVE company!

Maybe all of you should come for a visit. Since the parental’s are having #TheYearofTraveling maybe we should have #SummerVacationwithPerry.

3 Hour Tour at Verizon

PerryZadeVicHello People!

This weekend has been great. You see, the parentals have been home and I have enjoyed the lounging, and catch-up time. It is great to be able to spend an occasional lazy day together. I got caught up on my loves and hugs.

The godchild did grace us with his presence. He is so big now that he walked into the house, but no worries since I am still taller than him. He was very nice to me and gave me pets and attentions so I guess I will keep him around…for now.

We did have an outing this weekend and all went to the Verizon store since Mom had an issue with her phone. It wasn’t just a 3 hour tour, similar to Gilligan’s Island, but I was on my bestest behavior. They ended up giving us the HUM device so Dad won’t get lost when I distract him from driving.  The patient Verizon lady Nashoa and her friend Ozzy think maybe I should have a job there as the welcoming committee as everyone just oohed and awed over me – but of course!

Dad and I have been posting some videos lately about how he thinks he can “control” me by making me ride in the back seat of the car. Where’s the justice in it all? I should have permanent shotgun privileges…ALWAYS! I guess it is OK, as we have over 1,000 views on one and the other is climbing.

You know me shallow but sincere…

The weather in Santa Monica has been a breezy 65 degrees today but the sun is shining so I’m happy as a lark!

Until next time peeps!

The Year of Traveling

TreeHuggerHello Beautiful People!

Incredible that Trump and his hair thus far are unstoppable. He must be using Aqua-net or like we called it back in the 80’s “Aqua-Rock.” The Bern is an annoying bee to the Hillary and thank goodness I don’t have to choose a bathroom and can just go outside.

I went away to my camp for a few days and when I came back all this media news was a lot to process. I am glad I am not alone and have Mom and Dad to help buffer me from this Worldly Circus we live in. Speaking of Worlds, Mom went to the World Obesity Conference in Canada. I don’t need that type of conference as my metabolism runs like a champ but I realize there are many types of metabolisms and that is why they need Mom to help them.

goatpictureDad became a tree hugger and hugged an 800-year-old tree that is taller than the tower of Pisa. They didn’t even bring me back a t-shirt, but Dad got one from this cool natural foods store called Goats on the Roof.  Fortunately, the goats were on hiatus from the roof the day they went and maybe they went to their own camp. One solitary one was left. Hopefully next time I will get to go and play with the goats.

IMG_4605The parentals went with their good friends Roxanne and George who they visited after the conference.  Roxanne teaches those Motivational Interviewing trainings to humans in Canada.  Remember us canines don’t need motivation, but I still am bummed I did not get to visit them as I heard they like dogs.

The parentals are participating in #TheYearofTraveling – and you should check them out on Facebook and learn about their adventures. If you are not friends with them on FB reach out and if you are not a FB or Instagram user then your can get all the important information from my blog of course.

June gloom is in full force even though we are only in May. It was a breezy 65 degrees in Santa Monica today.

Love,

Perry

A Dog and his Boy

IMG_3336Hello People!

I am pretty tired as I just got back from a long visit at my camp in the country. The parental’s were out and about trying to  impact the world with wisdom about gluten and to speak with relevance to others using Motivational Interviewing.  We all know what happens to me if I eat even a smidgen of gluten – so I’m all about spreading the word about gluten sensitivity.

Mom was speaking to the Intertribal WIC of Arizona and at Hoag Memorial Hospital in Newport Beach. Both groups help women who have diabetes and they want to learn how to truly help others with behavior change. The parentals are always trying to change my walking habits so I don’t pull the leash but I don’t think Motivational Interviewing will help me change my mind about pulling – that is something us Weims just do to annoy our owners.

The weather has been great, a little windy, with the sun out. I have been resting a lot as you can tell by the picture. I am so big and take up the chair that he has to lay on me. It’s a bit crowded but I do like the snuggles.

Till next week’s adventures!

Love

Perry

I was Left OUT!

FullSizeRenderHello People…

This weekend has been both exciting and a little frustrating.

First I met this really nice lady when Dad and I walked to pick up Mom from yoga. She is friends with William Wegman and was very excited to see me. I loved how she gave me ear rubs and the attention I so deserve.  She invited the parentals to one of his openings in a few weeks – I wonder if I’m going to get to go to that -after all, it’s all about Weims.  Mom has to go to yoga to get in her downward dogs but I don’t need a class since I do that pose everyday, and usually the first thing after getting up.  Another reason we are superior to humans!

Now about that attention I deserve…well the parental’s didn’t display this when they decided to take a little road trip to a new store, Protein for Pets, and brought home SAMPLES. What? How on earth could they venture to a place and not take me. A dog approved spot in town (well everywhere in LA seems to be dog approved so that’s not saying much) with food.

IMG_3231They did bring back a few things for me to try out which I guess was nice but I was not having it and hid from them. As you can see I went to my favorite spot, which makes Dad crazy. I crawl under the bed, but cannot get out since it’s such a small space.  When I am finally ready to come out I just lay on my side and stretch my legs out and they have to pull me out. It is brilliant and fun for me.

Even with my own PITA behavior they were loving, kind and gave me a treat, but only ONE.  I can’t understand why I can’t be like humans and eat the whole bag but maybe that’s a good thing since overeating is not good for Weims – we do have that “bloat” problem which can be quite serious.  These treats are called Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw duck medallions, which I LOVED.  Apparently they are good for “cooling” and my system needs that according to the vet.

Well the weather was nice at a warm 70 degrees with a little breeze for our walk today.

Until next time,

Perry

Spring, Easter and New Beginnings

FullSizeRender-2Happy Easter People!  I’m beyond excited this week as it was the beginning of spring, Easter today and the garden is in full form!

Well the parental units have been busy as usual so that they forgot to let the bunny know where my Easter basket was.  However, they did do me right by letting me have a few treats – healthy dog treats vs. the peeps I’ve heard humans like. Then again, I will take any treat I can get away with.

Mom and Dad went to church and I got to stay home and rest…but we know how that goes.  I never rest except after 6 and only if I’ve had a proper walk – after all, a dog needs to get his 10,000 steps in, right?  And I DON’T even need a fitbit or an iWatch to track my steps!

I finally got to try the new snack Mom got at the Natural foods Expo by Pet Naturals called Hip and Joint treat.  Of course I had to pose but I don’t mind as long as I get treats.

The Santa Monica weather has been amazing this week as it was quite a pleasant 73 degrees today when Mom and I had our walk and Dad even joined in as well.

With spring in full swing, the garden is beautiful and the birds and squirrels are making me a little crazy, but hey that is part of my story and backyard…Perry’s playmates.

Enjoy all the wonder life has for you right now!

Love Perry
