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

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!
