Hartnell Wear and Spring Fitness

photo-2I’ve had a bump in my traffic fans this week and that makes me VERY happy!  It’s been another action packed week in Casa de Perry.

Mom finally got me to take a picture with my first ever made just for me outfit by Hanna Hartnell.  I love to wear it at night since it keeps me snuggly and warm but Mom said she needed me to go in the backyard for a picture – I’m not too happy about taking this picture as you see since I wanted to stay in the chair all warm.  However, it is a sunny, crisp 65 degrees in Santa Monica today so I have nothing to complain about.

Dad was very busy this morning getting ready for class and he was NOT paying enough attention to me so I decided to steal one of each of his shoes as you can see – that made him late for class and he had to run after me to get his transportation back again.  Hopefully that will make him realize that even though he has been taking me on multiple walks per day I still need my backyard playtime.

IMG-20140405-00074Speaking of walks, we broke our 10,000 steps per day this week since Dad is really trying to get fit.  I could easily go for 20,000 so I’m not sure why he’s so excited about that.

The most fun I had this week was when I got to meet my first ever 5 pound baby at Harvest Home.  I was so good Mom let me go again with her this week and we all got to drink some green tea.  Although I don’t drink it Mom says it’s loaded with an antioxidant called EGCG, which helps lower cholesterol, and risk of heart disease and cancer.  I’m not sure what those are exactly but I guess they are not great for the health so maybe she’ll give me some green tea in my water this week.

The baby was a boy who had LOTS of hair and curls and I so wanted to lick its face but Mom just let me look at him.  It’s not fair that he’s only 2 weeks old with all that hair and I’m 2 years and practically bald – what’s that about?

So until next week folks.  Remember although spring is here, summer is coming so it’s time to get in shape so you can all keep up with me!

Later people!

It’s National Puppy Day!

photoHello Campers!  As you all are aware every day is a special day for me and I am in control of life and its pleasures. However, today is even more special because it is National Puppy Day. OK, so I am not a small puppy but a guy can still try to be a kid…look at Dad as he is perpetually trying to remain a kid.

The best part of my day was receiving a big surprise box from Michael from Central Garden and Pet whom the parentals met at the Natural Foods Expo West in Anaheim a few weeks ago.  Mom told him I love pumpkin and Salmon so he sent me AvoDerm grain-free Salmon food and Pinnacle Salmon grain-free formula to try out.  I was so excited I was trying to rip open the package since they both smelled REALLLLY good.

Mom made me sit and wait for the picture which I am NOT happy about as you can see – I want to eat it, not sit in front of it and watch it.  The parentals aren’t all that smart sometimes – have you noticed that?

Anyway, we know how much I’m up on my nutrition since I know Salmon is high in omega 3’s and sometimes I am not great at taking the oil so this ensures I get what I need. More importantly they both have my FAVORITE food, which we know is pumpkin.   Pumpkin is high in the phytochemicals beta and alpha carotene.  Both of these formulas are a no brainer for me since it helps my brain (pardon the pun people).

Dad is pretty busy with finishing up school and organizing his clients, while Mom’s Motivational Interviewing workshops are starting to take off again. I heard the parentals talk about all the things we are doing for the next 6 months. I get the lucky part of the stick, as maybe I will be able to go visit some cool place or go back to the country.

The one fun thing I got to do this week was go to Harvest Home with Mom for the nutrition class she teaches there.  I was really good with the pregnant women and behaved as good as I could and got lots of loves, hugs and pets as we know I can’t get enough of those.

So all you fellow Pups and puppy lovers out there have a great, safe weekend…and I almost forgot it’s a cloudy 63 degrees in Santa Monica.   Here’s a puppy picture for nostalgia!

Peace out!
