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

And the Oscar Goes To….Perry?

IMG_2368Dad finally returned from the cold land of Kansas City Missouri. I was excited to see him and instantly forgave him for abandoning me by counter suffering and snatching a full chicken off the counter. Told you payback can be fun.

The week went great and all of us here at Casa de Perry are happy and healthy. We are working on printing a batch of our book A Healthy Baker’s Dozen, which should be ready in a month. Mom continues to book speaking engagements in Motivational Interviewing all over the country and Dad is trying to keep me out of trouble or should I say I keep him out of trouble.

I thought things were getting close to perfect since we were having a workday at the house. Usually these are pretty cool and mellow, with Dad in the office and me lounging with a big bone.

BUT NOT this time!

The Zade baby came over which means I do not receive all of my loves and attentions, which I am entitled to. Plus didn’t Dad just go to Missouri for that baby? And Dad was holding that little thing way too much and I felt abandoned.

IMG_2505I had had enough and tried to challenge the little creature with a stare down as you can see. Finally after a few hours things went back to normal and the baby was put into his container thingy and left.

Of course once the godchild left I shared with Dad my frustration by taking a few pairs of his shoes outside. That will learn him.

As you can see I am just sitting here waiting for the Academy Awards to begin.

Well, it is once again the Oscars and even though Ellen is not hosting it, Doogie Howser, MD will be in the house.

OK, red carpet fans you will not see me out there on it as it is overcast, chilly and the temp in Santa Monica is only 64 degrees today. I know our east coast friends are more than jealous but remember I have absolutely no hair or body fat to keep me warm, so I’m entitled to a little complaining.

And the Oscar goes to…

Maybe Perry?
