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!

I’m a Gluten-Free Dog

Hello Campers….

photoThe Punky is back from the land of sick and trying to get back to my normal self. As most of you know I was out of commission and it was a pretty itching situation. I had to go to the vet, take medicine and have socks on my feet. Not fun at all since I like being active and on the go.  It put MORE than a cramp in my Punky Style!

I overhead Dad say he was worried about my labored breathing and thank goodness we got to the vet in time so I could get a shot to make it all stop. Unfortunately I have some scares on my undercoat but I better stop now before I start sounding like a complaining old man dog.

Mom ordered some probiotics to help with my immune system so hopefully I will be back in full swing soon.

I finally got out and this morning Dad took me on my morning walk to see all the weekend people out there. I got to go to my first garage sale and I believe I was more treasured then the antiques.

Yep – that’s right folks I am a looker and there is always a few people who stop and ask the who, what and how gorgeous I am. One little boy even asked if I was for sale.

Thank goodness I have been on my best behavior and Dad didn’t sell me. And who am I kidding anyway?   Those parentals would be lost without me!

OK, it is almost dinnertime I am on a new hypoallergenic food with my raw turkey and broccoli. It has a fancy named and is called Royal Canine Veterinary Diet Selected Protein Adult PD. Dad says we have to try it out to see if that will also help my skin problems. So this dog is going completely wheat and gluten free.

AND I almost forgot – we had a duck visitor in the front yard this afternoon and I went CRAZY since Dad was out there taking pictures and being nice to another creature besides me – can you imagine?  Hasn’t he read that I have duck in my new dog food – he better be careful or else!

June gloom seems to be on hold right now as it was a sunny 73 degrees in Santa Monica today – the Weather Weimariner is back!
