I’ve Regressed in my Older Years

IMG_6120I know things are happening in the Punky Household – lots of changes with websites, new books, Mom’s training and everyone seems to be going in multiple directions.

All I know is I want my FOOD 24/7 and if I’m not fed on time I get cranky and annoying to the parentals.  After all, I am 40 in human years so it just makes sense that I would want my food on time. Unfortunately, they are on to me and know I try to corral them around breakfast and dinner time.  I usually start my plan of attack 45 minutes ahead, and herd Dad in the direction of the kitchen.

When that does not work I will find something to bark at in my “outside voice” inside and if THAT does not work, I know the mail man comes 5 minutes before dinner. I will rush to grab the mail and bite off a part of the envelope to really get Dad’s attention. It sometimes becomes a game for who can get to the slot first. Usually I prevail since I have 4 legs and can get there quicker than the middle-aged man.

Since nectarines are in season Dad has been eating them and he last week he slyly put part of one on the back of the counter with a pit. I showed him and ate the whole thing, pit and all. He was nervous that he was going to have to pay for an expensive surgery but thank goodness, I was able to get throw it up in the middle of the night – I guess I was not aware something like that could happen.  It’s just a little old pit, right?

I think that is all that is new.  I am sorry I’ve been MIA but it was REALLY hot in Casa de Perry – about 95 to be exact and we have no cool air in this Casa and it tired me out a bit. I even had to lay my head on the coffee table here as you see. Thank goodness Fall is almost here. The Weather Weimaraner wants to move to cooler weather but for now Santa Monica is my home.

Love

Happy Birthday Weekend

IMG_3376That’s right folks – it was yet another birthday and this one was Mom’s. We sure did have a nice time and I think she had a great day.

First I thought I would be a little considerate and let her sleep in without doing my usual routine of coming next to her side of the bed and start my scratching, shaking my big ears and licking my legs. I waited a little longer (really it is about the time and as we move towards daylight savings I get up about a minute later each day)

Once everyone was up our usual Saturday morning started with breakfast, a trip to Farmers Market (of course I did not get the chance to see people or the wonderful organic vegetables but when Dad came home he did take me for a walk).

Mom went out with her friend for lunch to Seasons 52 – a Century City restaurant that has food with the seasonal changes – and us guys stayed home and prepared a cool gluten-free meal for mom.

FullSizeRenderI love cooking in the kitchen with Dad. We made zucchini lasagna and a zucchini sour cream pie. I know we hooked it up good because when Mom came home she said the house-smelled great and she sampled our hard work.

After dinner I lounged, Dad watched some TV and Mom did some work. Even with birthdays we still have stuff to do. We are a working family with lots of projects but we do appreciate our birthday gifts and that is being a family and appreciating our blessings.

The weather was a beautiful sunny 70 degrees Santa Monica for Mom’s birthday. Not to be too narcissistic but her day was much more beautiful than my birthday but I’ll give that to her this year.

Peace!
