My Christmas Guest

img_5634It’s been a busy month around our house with food testing, and doing “year end” things as Dad calls them. It seems like it’s always about food in our house which is A-OK by me.

Last week we had a little furry visitor named Viva. You may recall she came two years ago for the Christmas holiday. I couldn’t help myself but I was a little cold the first day as I had to share my toys, my bed, my favorite chair AND the parentals.

However, I did warm up to having her around since there were extra toys to play with, more walks and treats. She did have this wonderful habit of leaving her food in her bowl which I’ve never even thought of doing.  I tried to eat her food but unfortunately Mom watched the whole time so I could not even sneak a bite.

I thought she was trying to take over but on the second evening she actually put her paw on mine trying to show her appreciation – it was very sweet.

When it came time for Viva to leave, Mom was beyond surprised that I whined a little bit that my lady friend was leaving, but then life changed and I was on to the next adventure.  Thanks to all for following my blog this year and let’s hope the New Year will bring more love, treats and peace to all man and caninekind.

The weather has been pretty cold for LA and it’s actually been raining – a phenomena we rarely experience here.

Love Perry


I’m in Training to be a Service Dog

photoI’m not all that happy.  There are clothes and suitcases flying everywhere and the land of Perry is being disrupted.  Mom is going to a Menopause conference which does not sound fun AT ALL – who in the world would want to go to conference about ladies having hot flashes and gaining weight?  Somehow she’s excited about it since there are going to people from all over the world talking about Women’s Health.  I think she should go to a conference about Canine Health – right?

Remember it’s all about ME!!

Speaking of ME I was playing a little too hard with the puppies at daycare – they are my favorite since the older dogs are old stick in the muds, and got an owie on my underside.  Dad has been a bit concerned but I should be fine.  I am excited since I get to go to the country again for a few days while Mom is gone and run with the horses.  Santa Monica is fine but not enough land here for my long legs that need running and stretching.  I would be thrilled if I could run a marathon every day since that is what my legs were built for.

Dad says that’s not an option since I would cost him too much food.  He doesn’t ever let me run or walk as fast as I want to on our walks – I think he should learn to run like me but he says his legs were not built for it.  We all know who is the better species here, do we not?

I was happy I got to go the office a few times this week (remember I’m in “training” to be a service dog so one day I can go to work with Mom) and I actually got to help her put away her food for lunches in her little refrigerator.  I was VERY good and got to have my favorite treat – a few squares of cheese.  Remember that is one of my favorite foods besides peanut butter, pumpkin, broccoli, and apples.  I guess that’s why I have such a great physique – all that fresh healthy food.  I supposed I could eat processed food but then my coat wouldn’t shine and I wouldn’t be able to outsmart the parentals as much as I already do.

Anyway, although we had a LITTLE bit of rain this week, it is still a drought and of course a beautiful 68 degrees in Santa Monica.

Until next week people – Perry wishing you a Peaceful Spring!
