Trump Wall has NOTHING on ME!

FullSizeRenderTrump has nothing on MY Wall!

Yes folks it is sad to say that “The Dad” decided my nonexistent “Love thy Neighbor” actions were not sufficient for this house.

Now wait, before all of you get your shorts bunched up like a political convention, hear me out.  No one hacked into my fan base or stole a speech. Worse yet we didn’t have an obnoxious parade of balloons for this wall.

This wall of chairs is to keep me from damaging the wall. I know it sounds pretty bad but let me explain myself.

Next store is this little, for lack of words ‘Sherlock Holmes,’ sort of creature. I could take him out if the Parental’s would allow but we all know that is not an option…sad face emoji.

Well every time that PITA goes out he comes real close to my house, barks at me, and has the audacity to relieve himself on MY bush. This behavior MAKES ME CRAZY PEOPLE!

IMG_4863I guess I really didn’t realize how postal I was becoming. It was not a pretty scene at all. Now we have “The Wall” and back to more training. Does this learning ever stop? At least I know that the row of chairs just drives Dad crazy…

Perry 1 – Dad 0

On a more serious note, wall or not, our wonderful friends from Italy, Antonella and Francesco, who have tried to gain legal citizenship for the least 2 years, are having to leave. They need to wait another two years in hopes of getting an opportunity to come back to the US legally. Very sad but we can always FaceTime them.  The good news is Dad did make some great food for their departing lunch and of course I had some great scooby snacks that day.

It has been VERY hot in our 100 year old house but Dad finally bought a swamp cooler so we are all a bit more comfortable.

Love Perry

Version 2Hello Voters?

The Iowa Caucuses are in full swing and we are all waiting with anticipation to find out what the outcome will be.

The 2016 presidential campaign remains a political circus and all the candidates need some Teflon to deflect the mud slinging. The campaign dollars, superpacs, and all the flip-flopping is taking a toll on the American people’s patience.

Hillary is running from the Bern and Ted is trying to cover Donald’s hair with maybe a Canadian flag?? They are all hash tag CRAZY and consuming the air out of the real issues at hand or at least I feel that way. But then again, I am just a dog.

When I go on my walks I try and be kind to all those cross my path. There are dogs of different colors, sizes and breeds, and the little purse dogs make me nervous. But these dogs and their differences is which can make life exciting and visually appealing. If we all looked the same then what would life’s purpose be?

PerryandJeffreyMy wish for all of you this season is to be respectful of people’s choices even if they are not inline with your own. Getting mad, angry or mean is not a Perry approved option.

That’s my political commentary and I am sticking to it. Unless of course it involves peanut butter and then I am checked out.

AND one of my favorite girlfriends Auntie Chris came and chilled with me on Friday night – she came over to celebrate 20 years of friendship with Mom – probably longer than I will be alive and took a picture of Dad and I before she left.

We had some rain today in Santa Monica and lots of wind but Mom and I managed a walk this afternoon so all is well from the Weather Weimaraner!

Love Perry

Perry Shares the Spotlight

perry zade bdayAs summer is in the end stretch, I continue to have adventures and amaze the parentals with my maturity. Don’t get too excited – I can still prank with the best of them – hence the name Punky!

This morning while Dad was photographing this year’s Thanksgiving card, (Rite-Aid doesn’t have anything on us LOL) Mom and I went on a walk and I can proudly report back I did not pull once. I went easy on her, but if it were Dad he would not be as lucky.

Mom called it a little summer miracle since I walked right next to her – I figured it was time to act respectable since after all – I do live in the People’s Republic of Santa Monica.

Over the last few weeks Dad and I have been hanging out more than usual in the backyard. Actually, to be more exact, he’s been working and I’ve been helping with getting into things and making a mess. I did have a few time-outs this week and all this for a party.

Since the parental units are Baby Zade’s godparents, which I guess makes them god-units, they are having his first birthday party in OUR backyard. Dad is all about milking this godfather thing all the while I am trying to deal with the idea of this party since the backyard is MY territory.

One redeeming fact is at least I was on the invitation. However, I don’ t know what is worse – Dad being obnoxious about the godfather thing or all this over a 1-year-old taking over my backyard. I guess I will do the neighborly thing and let others have a moment in the sun of narcissism.

The weather has been crazy hot, but nice evenings and mornings. We have been eating out side on the patio…yep the parental’s took that over now. I am starting to LEARN life is about sharing and respecting other’s boundaries.

On the sharing note…the Donald is still showing up with his HAIR People!

Peace out Punky

Perry Goes Political

FullSizeRenderHello Campers and Political junkies!

This week has been an interesting one charged with many political sightings and hot topics. Since my agent, Aunt Deb Main, suggested I branch out with my insight on this planet here it goes…

As the 2016 Presidential campaign trail heats up in the U.S. its face is changing for sure. I foresee a continual train wreck in the upcoming future in which all of us are going to be subject to a political hot mess in the media with biased opinions and screams for campaign reform.

Democrat front-runner or should we say only runner, Hillary Clinton, was spotted in a Monica Lewinsky blue pant suit hitting the trail. Jeb Bush apparently needs some schooling on how to read a teleprompter and good ole Trump showed up along with his hair to join a soccer size team to toss around nauseating rhetoric.  As a good reporter I’m unbiased and still the undecided voter but apparently it will be a while anyway.  I will be much older in dog years before the election so I’m not worried yet…

Sit tight electoral it is definitely going to be a bumpy ride.

SCOTUS decided that ACA was law, which means POTUS was pleased and I am still confused by all these acronyms. All I know is I am glad I have my insurance through VPI, aka Veterinary Pet Insurance

But the Supreme Court was busy last week as it appears to be the only branch of government working (congress is always out to lunch and the senate just seems to ramble on) Hmm…maybe they should have to have some ACA with their TPP deal.

Anyways, everyone now can get married, which means we made the White house a colorful flag while we took down a confederate flag.

I still cannot get married…so what’s up with that?

Young children are now getting into trouble as they start to sell sugar and salt because their school lunches are too bland. I guess capitalism still reigns somewhere in this country.

Finally, a beautiful side note…after the horrendous killing of the bible study class in South Carolina, some family members were able to express their forgiveness for the shooter’s heinous crimes. Maybe there is still hope in this topsy-turvy country we call home!

OK, that is all on the Perry Political front. Oh yeah the weather in Santa Monica was a breezy 73 degrees today so all is well in our land, or at least for now.

Peace out Perry!
