I’m SIX Years OLD!

I’m SIX: I’m finally at the “supposed to be” calming stage that most dogs hit at two but somehow it just hasn’t quite happened yet. I LOVE to exercise and get in my walks and still have lots of energy to spare. I’m way more energetic than the parentals but that’s not saying much since they are both almost a 1/2 a decade old.

My birthday was coming and I was feeling a little down and all of a sudden I smelt something or should I say I HEARD something and then I knew “the Tutu” was coming.  For most of you that don’t know this girl she is sort of this bossy gal who makes a lot of noise and steals my toys. I do secretly kind of like her, but I heard her coming and braced myself for the unexpected.  She came bearing birthday gifts from Beverly Hills so I must have done something right. These cookies were SO fancy that Dad even tried to eat one.  But we had to make sure that these fancy show cookies from Pussy Pooch were gluten-free as I am SENSITIVE and had a bad reaction in the past. But Tutu’s Mom made sure they were okay – she hooked me up with some birthday fun so I’m feeling better now.

Once we got the okay I was able to have a pre-birthday cookie in sheer SIX year old fashion – I chose the pretty blue star and here I am anticipating the deliciousness I am about to experience in my mouth. Life has been good in the Dopart-Batchelor house and I’ve missed all of you. As usual lots going on with books, trainings and work but I’m just glad to be a part of it all.

Happy New Year to all of you in 2018!

Love,

Perry

P.S. – I almost forgot my weather report. After only .12 inches of rain all year we are about to get a deluge of 2 inches so hopefully my back yard will start to turn from brown to green!

It’s SMOKIN’ HOT in Santa Monica

photo-4This past week there has been record high temperatures in Santa Monica and I have just been a lounging dog in the middle of it all. We do not have what Dad calls AC in Casa de Perry so the car rides have been a refreshment from the heat.

One day Dad and I did have some fun and shot wedding pictures with Uncle Andrew and I got distracted with a marrow bone which we know is good for my skin, and health besides keeping me out of trouble.

Dad has NOT been playing enough with me – this school thing needs to be over NOW as I am not getting all the attention and affections I deserve. I heard he only has 4 more weeks till big graduation day so he can get his degree in photography, and we can all move on with our lives.

photo-3Mom was really happy this week as she had a cool Registered Dietitian intern Caitlin from Pepperdine to help with promoting our gluten-free cookie book which you remember I’m featured in.  In case you forgot it’s all about ME.

I want it to be June Gloom in Santa Monica soon so if you have some COLD in your part of the world please send me some. Everyone’s been talking about global warming and I have no idea what that is – all I know is I need some global cooling here.

Ok – the Weather Weimaraner has reported faithfully for the week. Till next week people!

I’m Featured in A Healthy Baker’s Dozen: gluten-free low sugar cookies

d_3hndZ2oD030iFJr29ARGgerGh1bDf0mamFaH6Fj4k

This thing called Thanksgiving was pretty cool and as with the rest of my pack I am thankful for a bounty of food.  What I did like most about it was that the parental units were home for 4 days so I got a lot of my deserving attentions and affections.  However, I did miss my buddies at my day program just a little.

Just because I got to lounge around for 4 days does not mean Mom and Dad did.  There were going non stop and up at all hours.  You see we finished up with the gluten-free cookie book, A Healthy Bakers Dozen, which I am the star of I might add.  But what was really cool is it was uploaded for Cyber Monday but made it up on Amazon on Black Friday. Remember there is a dog cookie in there with my picture so be sure to look at that one first!

I am proud to say my parentals are now the authors of three books and I hear there are more in the works.  I just hope the next one has some food in it as I did like clocking all the hours in the kitchen with this last book.

I did not get into too much trouble this past week, though Dad was on my case because I just love to run in the mud and it rained a few days.  Yep – that is right I paid him back with running in the house with mud on my feet.  I thought he needed a little exercise…smile.

I may have landed a gig as a model for dog clothes, which I am ambivalent about since I am not too fond of playing dress up but I hear this is a top designer so who knows?  You might be seeing me as a super model, so stay tuned for this one folks since it could be really BIG.  I am just saying Dad better make sure there are treats in my contract.

OK folks stay cool and remember there is only a few more shopping days until Christmas.
