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

Mom was GONE and Dad Irritated Me

Mom had to go away AGAIN to Kansas City.  I have no idea where that is but it was something to do with beef –  I think it’s similar to the Bully Sticks Mom buys me when she wants me to behave.

I don’t like it when Mom is gone since I have no schedule – I have to get my OWN vitamin off the counter, I can’t get in to the refrigerator to get my fish oil and yogurt and Dad is busy using that big black box to take pictures…I can’t figure out why he takes so many pictures – who needs them anyway?
Since Dad was not paying enough attention to ME and working with Uncle Andrew on pictures AGAIN I showed him.  I stole his “prop” as he calls it since it is my favorite food with the crowns and ran to the couch.  I love it when he chases me but this time he just followed me with the black box.  Later on I stole the toilet paper and shredded it and THAT got his attention.
The game was not over since he put the controller thing on me so after he took it off I went and hid it.  Thank goodness Mom came home last night.  I heard Dad has to work all weekend so maybe I can terrorize her while she’s trying to unpack.  After all, I’m puppy Perry and that’s what puppies do best.

I LOVE the Little Crowns

Mom was chopping up my favorite vegetable for dinner and I decided I wanted some too – they always leave me out and it’s high time I eat what they do!  Mom calls it broccoli but I call it the little crowns.  I took part of it she was throwing in the garbage and ran in the back yard.

For some odd reason she didn’t chase me this time so I came in and quietly ate in on the kitchen floor.  I guess this is not as bad for me as when I steal the toilet paper – not sure why since they are both full of fiber, right?  Remember my Mom is a nutritionist so I picked up a few things since I’ve been here for the last 12 weeks.
