Almost Christmas

IMG_3195The BIG stick in our living room with lights is entirely too tempting for me.  When the parentals get me irritated I just want to touch it and play with all the fun toys on it.  However, I did get busted with taking one of the little crystal things on the stick and Dad was quite upset and I got a time out.

Since it’s ALMOST Christmas – only 4 days and counting – I’m wondering about these pretty bags under the stick.

I’ve sniffed and looked and tried to open one but again the parentals are always on to me and I’m prevented from getting my mission accomplished.

I did get quite excited last night as Auntie Chris made a special visit to see me AND I got my own toy squirrel – also known as PITA.  She brought Dad her yearly brown bread with cream cheese but somehow I was not offered any – maybe next year.

I hear the post office is still open tomorrow so please send more gifts and treats as I have not had sufficient ones yet.  I guess I should be satisfied with less, especially since I’m much more fortunate than most so I’ll sign off for  now.

It was a pleasant 65 degrees in Santa Monica today and the rain has held up for a few days so Dad is happy with less mud on my paws.

Christmas barks from Perry!

Pre-Christmas Car Shopping

Today was fun but I had to be on the best behavior as the parentals were a little on edge.  You see Mom’s car is very old and even with very low miles it is just too small for her and especially for ME so we all had to go car shopping.  Anyway that is what we did today…boring just driving cars, but not really go anywhere interesting.  The Volvo dealer was the most fun, since Julio was nice and gave me the loves and pets I deserve.  Max helped Mom with answering all her questions about a car since she is so concerned about safety.

But enough of that – let’s talk about ME.  I have been on my best behavior and have not gotten into too much trouble this past week.  I do get a little out of control when other dogs walked in front of my house.  My ferocious bark continues to annoy Dad to the point I see his veins pop out of his neck.

It has been busy with all of the parental’s book work as they are getting ready to print a few real copies of the gluten free cookie book, A Healthy Baker’s Dozen, so that will be available soon.  I never understood what the ebook thing was anyway.

This week is going to be busy and it is not about Christmas shopping.  Dad is working too much and it is HIS birthday, but more importantly I hear Santa comes soon.  I have made a list of the toys I would like but my list is a little heavy on the snacks.  Hopefully Santa will fill my stocking with treats and more treats.  No coal here…I have been perfect…that’s my story and I am sticking to it.

OK, Dad wants to do some training now and it involves cheese so I MUST GO!

Later People.

 

My New Favorite Toy!

IMG-20121225-00888What an exciting day!  Now I know what this Christmas thing is all about – PRESENTS!

This morning I woke up and Dad took me on a walk.  We came back and had breakfast and I got this toy called an Advent Calendar but I was happy since it was soft and squeaky.  Then I got a second toy called a Sprong that squeaked just like a dolphin – I really LOVE IT!

I’ve been  running into Mom and Dad all day squeaking the dolphin – it’s fun, loud and seems to irritate the parental units – what a great present!  Santa really delivered this year.  Then after that I wanted another present but it looked like I was done.  Maybe I am just like a kid on Christmas and could subscribe to this holiday…
