The Oscars 2016

IMG_3129It was all about diversity or lack of it, which seems to be an issue not only at the Oscars but this election cycle.

I don’t understand too much about that because I look at everyone as a person of worth and love just as long as they are kind to me and give me attention that I deserve. OK, that was my PSA for the week.

As for our reality the parentals are busy as ever. Mom continues to expand her expertise in Motivational Interviewing and coding tapes for fidelity to the language along with helping others understand the importance of behavior change.

Of course Dad has his cranky pants on as it is tax season and he is definitely not effervescent. He gets irritated at me when I steal his pens and lay on all the papers. That’s OK, as I have been getting him back. You see, I have become a master at really making him crazy.

Lately every chance I get I go find Dad’s wallet and take it outside. He literally panicked this week since he thought he lost his wallet. Mom figured it out and told him to search in the backyard.  I’m not sure what the big deal was – I had just put it on the patio in plain sight.  Lately he has been hiding it better from me. It is still nice to know that even after 4 years of hanging out with him I can still make him crazy.

Our weather has been a bit schizophrenic with bouts of warm and cold all mixed up.  Mom usually has her little heater on during breakfast and I’ve been known to “steal” whatever warmth there is – remember I have no hair so I need all the warmth I can get.

As for the weather today we had some June gloom intermixed with 70’s weather which was nice for my walk with Mom before the red carpet began.

Stay safe people and be kind to others.

Peace,

Perry’s Political Corner

FullSizeRender-3Happy 4th of July to all of you out there in the USA!

Even with our country being in a state of flux…

  • Flags are going up, flags are coming down
  • People are trying to rewrite history by moratoriums of 80’s sitcoms such as removing from syndication the Dukes of Hazards and talks of banning the beloved movie Gone with the Wind
  • Political candidates are gathering money from whoever they can to build their war chests
  • Insurance companies are increasing costs as more sick become insured and healthier youth take their chances and don’t get insurance
  • The President makes sure his Mont blanc pen gets exercise by releasing non violent prisoners
  • We are back in Cuba

Oh yeah, Trump continues to get in trouble and it isn’t due to having a bad hair day.

Even with the USA’s family dysfunction we are a country, which is built on freedoms and liberties for one and all. Or at least that is how it should be…a melting pot of cultural diversity laden with respect, kindness and self-responsibility for others.

On another note, I was pretty good on the fireworks front as I had on my ThunderShirt which helped keep me calm and safe amidst all those crazy sounds.  I can’t imagine why the humans like them.  Mom said I’m not a very good gun dog whatever that means since I don’t even know what a gun is.

The weather has been warm and humid with 96% humidity this morning when I checked the weather report.

Peace People,

Perry
