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

Hartnell Wear and Spring Fitness

photo-2I’ve had a bump in my traffic fans this week and that makes me VERY happy!  It’s been another action packed week in Casa de Perry.

Mom finally got me to take a picture with my first ever made just for me outfit by Hanna Hartnell.  I love to wear it at night since it keeps me snuggly and warm but Mom said she needed me to go in the backyard for a picture – I’m not too happy about taking this picture as you see since I wanted to stay in the chair all warm.  However, it is a sunny, crisp 65 degrees in Santa Monica today so I have nothing to complain about.

Dad was very busy this morning getting ready for class and he was NOT paying enough attention to me so I decided to steal one of each of his shoes as you can see – that made him late for class and he had to run after me to get his transportation back again.  Hopefully that will make him realize that even though he has been taking me on multiple walks per day I still need my backyard playtime.

IMG-20140405-00074Speaking of walks, we broke our 10,000 steps per day this week since Dad is really trying to get fit.  I could easily go for 20,000 so I’m not sure why he’s so excited about that.

The most fun I had this week was when I got to meet my first ever 5 pound baby at Harvest Home.  I was so good Mom let me go again with her this week and we all got to drink some green tea.  Although I don’t drink it Mom says it’s loaded with an antioxidant called EGCG, which helps lower cholesterol, and risk of heart disease and cancer.  I’m not sure what those are exactly but I guess they are not great for the health so maybe she’ll give me some green tea in my water this week.

The baby was a boy who had LOTS of hair and curls and I so wanted to lick its face but Mom just let me look at him.  It’s not fair that he’s only 2 weeks old with all that hair and I’m 2 years and practically bald – what’s that about?

So until next week folks.  Remember although spring is here, summer is coming so it’s time to get in shape so you can all keep up with me!

Later people!
