I still have my licking problem with my incisions so now I’ve graduated to a shirt. It’s not my friend since it’s TOO hot. What is this with the parentals trying to dress me up like a cabbage-patch doll? However, one thing happened that was quite exciting and worth reporting. It was becoming dusk outside and Mom and Dad were talking about something and I saw noticed an unusual movement that captured my eye in the thick brush in MY backyard. Before they knew it I nearly knocked Mom over and dove deep into the bush, and captured whatever it was and NOW it was in my mouth.
I was a bit unsure what it was and tried to show the parentals my achievement. All I got from Mom was “crate, crate” and Dad saying “No, NOT in the house.” I panicked and got mixed parenting signals so I dropped my trophy and ran into the house into my crate. I heard them later saying it was a possum and apparently it was playing dead, which they do, and then escaped since it was magically gone the next time I went outside. I think that was enough excitement for the week for everyone.
Life in the Dopart-Batchelor household has been nonstop with trainings, and projects but we wish you all well in the first half of the year and hope you are staying cool and safe. The weather has been a bit more temperate thank goodness since our 100 year old house has NO AC. Please still bring ice-cubes if you come – just sneak them to me so I don’t get in trouble.
Sorry I’ve been MIA – the parents have been busy so here’s the news:
Dad decided to venture way up north to his old stomping grounds for his 30th school class reunion and sent me off to the country. Maybe he needed a break from me, but doesn’t he realize I never need a break from him? I live for ruling this house and when he sends me away I don’t get to get under the Parentals’ skin.
Not to worry my dear ones…when I got back I gave them an extra doses of love, hugs, and annoyance. For example, this morning when I took Mom on a walk I decided I needed to share with the neighborhood by marking every few feet. I took advantage of the lush grass and I was like a dog in the candy store with green lawns. Finally, Mom got upset with me and told me the walk was not a bathroom buffet and took back control of “my” walk.
AND Mom’s new book came out 101 Ways to Control your Diabetes. Of course I am featured in the book as I always remember to walk and eat healthfully but I guess the humans need something to remind them.
I have been pretty docile lately because it has been super-hot and all I want to do is lounge trying to find the coolest place in Casa de Perry which is a difficult thing to do right now. I do muster up the strength to bark at the annoying neighbor dog who still continues to push my buttons.
I would like to report how good I was while getting my Mani/Pedi after my return from the country. I have been trying out this new place which comes to me – hence avoiding the LA traffic. You know how I love being pampered. Detail Dog is a great service and you should give them a try. See how good I was when Phoebe was clipping my nails. I smelled fresh and clean after it was all said and done so I’m all ready for any summer guests!
OK, off to sit by my swamp cooler as it’s the usual 85 degrees in our house today! I figured you had missed the Weather Weimaraner report.
