I Run the Schedule

img_5231The parentals may think they rule the roost in the Dopart-Batchelor house but secretly it is I PERRY who dictates what happens here.  The only thing I have not been able to control lately is the rain and there’s been a LOT of it.  Dad even had to go in the back yard with his high boots to wade through it all.  I was smart enough to stay in the house  – that’s what we Weims are known for – that we are smarter than our owners.

So here’s what I do:  6 am if the parentals are not up I start to scratch and itch so they can hear the ching-ching of my collar.  If that doesn’t get them up I go to Dad’s side of the bed first and then Mom’s side.  Eventually one of them gets up so we can all get started on our routine.

img_5721I’ve trained them to put on the little space heaters in the dining room and bathroom so I can go from heater to heater to soak up all the warmth in the house.  You may remember I don’t have much hair and am prone to chills more than other canines – can’t imagine what my friends in Germany do but glad I’m not one of them.

I did rise to nursing status this week when Dad had a colonoscopy – he was sad and cold so I laid on the floor with him to help him feel better but it seemed to take a long time.  Thank goodness canines don’t have to have cancer prevention procedures like that!

Anyway, Mom is busy with her Motivational Interviewing trainings and the new book on diabetes which will hopefully go to print this month. I know it will help a lot of people with their health.  My health is fine since I eat my broccoli every day and Mom gives me my probiotic and fish oil all at breakfast – that’s also part of the schedule but that one I don’t have to worry about controlling .

Hope you are all having a good year so far and I’ll check in again soon. If you all watched the Superbowl today I hope your team won and you ate some healthy food.

Love,

 

Perry

How’s That WALL working OUT?

fullsizerenderAs you can see that Trump Wall concept really didn’t work out. But then again, from this advantage point I can look out for Hillary to see if she is having any substantial press conferences. All I can gather is politics are more dysfunctional than the neighbor’s dog and my relationship, which is extremely cantankerous.

gabbsI did have a few visitors. The Gabbs came over to see me and give me the proper attention and affections I so require – there are 5 of them, although only 4 came but there was enough loves, hugs and pets to last for a while.  As you can see, I was trying to be non-photogenic.

As for our family we continue to go through closets, drawers, and cabinets…we are cleaning out items. I even had to go through my toy box to give away some of my toys. Life is just too important to be anchored to your stuff.

The weather is starting to cool down a little bit and as the daylight fades faster into darkness, fall is upon us. We are very blessed and thankful to all of you out there.

Love and Peace!

Perry Goes Political

FullSizeRenderHello Campers and Political junkies!

This week has been an interesting one charged with many political sightings and hot topics. Since my agent, Aunt Deb Main, suggested I branch out with my insight on this planet here it goes…

As the 2016 Presidential campaign trail heats up in the U.S. its face is changing for sure. I foresee a continual train wreck in the upcoming future in which all of us are going to be subject to a political hot mess in the media with biased opinions and screams for campaign reform.

Democrat front-runner or should we say only runner, Hillary Clinton, was spotted in a Monica Lewinsky blue pant suit hitting the trail. Jeb Bush apparently needs some schooling on how to read a teleprompter and good ole Trump showed up along with his hair to join a soccer size team to toss around nauseating rhetoric.  As a good reporter I’m unbiased and still the undecided voter but apparently it will be a while anyway.  I will be much older in dog years before the election so I’m not worried yet…

Sit tight electoral it is definitely going to be a bumpy ride.

SCOTUS decided that ACA was law, which means POTUS was pleased and I am still confused by all these acronyms. All I know is I am glad I have my insurance through VPI, aka Veterinary Pet Insurance

But the Supreme Court was busy last week as it appears to be the only branch of government working (congress is always out to lunch and the senate just seems to ramble on) Hmm…maybe they should have to have some ACA with their TPP deal.

Anyways, everyone now can get married, which means we made the White house a colorful flag while we took down a confederate flag.

I still cannot get married…so what’s up with that?

Young children are now getting into trouble as they start to sell sugar and salt because their school lunches are too bland. I guess capitalism still reigns somewhere in this country.

Finally, a beautiful side note…after the horrendous killing of the bible study class in South Carolina, some family members were able to express their forgiveness for the shooter’s heinous crimes. Maybe there is still hope in this topsy-turvy country we call home!

OK, that is all on the Perry Political front. Oh yeah the weather in Santa Monica was a breezy 73 degrees today so all is well in our land, or at least for now.

Peace out Perry!
