No Baby is Going to Steal my Stage

muddytoyThis was a most interesting week. Mom’s been bragging about one of her Pepperdine interns Victoria who helped out a lot of on her website…but remember all I really care about is MY website and MY blog. Who cares about Mom’s sites?

Well, I finally got to meet Victoria and her husband Mark since they are having a baby soon and Dad was taking pictures. They brought a toy for the pictures and I was not having any of it. I saw that toy, went into the bedroom and took it out of the bag and paraded with it in the back yard. I even dropped it in the mud – that will show Dad to pay attention to someone else besides me.

I really am a nice dog – it just seems when I am not the center of attention something comes over me and I have to make it ABOUT me! Maybe it’s some sort of dysfunction in my canine brain or that I have a slightly narcissistic breed?

Anyway, Dad got so angry and I knew it since the veins were popping out, and I was afraid I wouldn’t survive this one. Uncle Andrew was helping to take the pictures and he tried to calm everyone, and his picture gets featured today due to my bad behavior . Anyway, Mom got home and put me in the crate and it was all over.

IMG_9237I guess I’m thankful Dad was able to restore the toy to it’s almost newish self. I’m more thankful I’m the only child in this household.

I promise more interesting ventures soon. Dad is starting a new cookbook that is going to have some really COOL delicious recipes and I will be sharing those with you very soon if I don’t drool over all the recipes beforehand.

And I almost forgot – it’s very odd weather today in Santa Monica – there’s been a LITTLE bit of rain, some very scary lightening which I am NOT used to and a partly-cloudy 75 degrees.

The Weather Weinaraner is signing off for this week.

Peace!

The Country Does Me Good

photo-2So I had a fabulous time in the country – after all, I really am a country dog at heart although I live in the city. I got to RUN and RUN and RUN and it did my heart good, especially since the parentals were a bit tired after their trip. I’ll never get heart disease, although it is rampant in our country.

I made sure Mom gave me my fish oil this week since I had been missing it. I love the Carlson lemon flavor and love to lick it off the spoon. It gives my coat that great shine and ensures I’ll be free of Alzheimer’s disease, and lubricates my joints to help avoid hip dysplasia, which is common in my breed.

Dad is a bit cranky as he is has lots of papers and projects to finish in his last 4 weeks of school so he can graduate with his degree in photography to help with all our books.

Mom is crazy busy with her Motivational Interviewing trainings and had 2 this past week. I wonder whether her participants get treats like I do when I get trained?

I’ve been a bit disappointed as no new recipes to sample this week although Mom gave me a good portion of cheese while she was cutting up some for her afternoon snack.

We all missed the heat wave last week thank goodness and it is a crisp sunny 68 degrees in Santa Monica today. I have to admit we do have the best weather, although the drought here is getting serious. I think my relatives back east should share their water supply.

Peace till next week!

I Have My Freshnesses on With Organic Oscar

photoIt’s been a long week People. Dad has been working nonstop with school and lots of clients and I’ve been hanging out with Mom more which is okay…but not nearly as fun since she’s always writing all those blog things.

I’m not sure why they are important since the only thing she really needs to be blogging about is ME!

I’ve gotten myself into a little bit of trouble with digging up the patio blocks and was not quite as clean as Dad likes SO I got a bath. Dad used the new Organic Oscar Shampoo the parentals got at the Natural Foods Expo West.

I was wondering what was taking them so long so I started itching more this week since I read (yes, I do read sometimes) this was the itch relief one and I was very excited about trying it. I’m game for whatever will help my skin since you may not be aware but skin issues are common with us Weimaraners.

Here I am resting after my nice bath!

I was a little sad since I did not get to see the babies this week at Harvest Home but Mom said maybe soon if I’m good like I was last time.

The most fun I had this week was when Uncle Andrew came over so Dad could take pictures of him and Sonya for a school class. They were engagement pictures but I’m not sure why they needed them since they are already married but I didn’t care. The only thing I cared about was seeing Uncle Andrew since he was the first person I met after coming home when I was 7 weeks old.

Oh – and of course it is a beautiful, crisp 63 sunny day in Santa Monica. I know we need the rain since we are in a drought but then I would get dirty. Dad likes it when I have my “freshnesses on” as he famously says almost every day.

Till next week – Peace People!
