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

Happy 4th Birthday to ME!

FullSizeRender-2This morning was like the rest…get up, go out, eat breakfast and then back to bed. I love the extra snoozes I get.

Once everyone was up, I gave my usual love and affection to the parentals. They told me it was my birthday and gave me some extra love, which we all know I deserve.

Then I got side tracked with a barking fit as the neighbor dog walks too close to my house as we know how territorial I am.

Apparently this sort of warning system is not really working for Mom and Dad or the fact that I have slipped back into my old habit of pulling a little too much on my walks.

But wait, before everyone gets all upset…I have not slipped up with my healthy eating and yes I too like Mom recommends to  her clients am consuming my probiotics. I also continue to take my Carlson fish oil which has tremendously helped my skin and itching, which we know is a problem with us Weimaraners.

FullSizeRender.jpgThe day was progressing nicely and as it was my 4th Birthday, I was enjoying my lounging and resting time. Then, there was an intrusion and I heard the door bell and went into bark mode. The next thing I know is The Tutu was there at my front door. What? She is coming to my birthday party?

Well as usual she wobbles in with her Darth Vader breathing and went straight for my stash of bones. I wish I had a lightsabor.

Anyway we hung out and she did wish me a Happy Birthday so she is OK in my book, but that stealing of my bones…I guess I should play well and share a little more.

For dinner Dad hooked me up PEOPLE! It was amazing as you can see and I enjoyed every last morsel.

The weather in Santa Monica has been cold and rainy and El Nino is in full gear. We are excited about 2016 and have lots of plans…stay tuned as it should be an adventure.

Love,

Perry

Time for My Probiotics

Mom eats plain yogurt every morning and I got curious about it.  She told me there were good bugs in it called bacteria for her stomach so I decided I wanted some too.  Since I kept begging for it she finally put some in a bowl and gave it to me and I could NOT stop eating it.

I really like cottage cheese but yogurt is my favorite now.  My tummy was very happy today.

Mom says I’m getting so big and she misses the puppy since I now look like a dog but isn’t that what I’m supposed to be?  Maybe I can’t be Perry puppy anymore.  I’m only 15 1/2 weeks old and growing so fast everyone can hardly believe I’m the same puppy I was a few weeks ago.
