The Lazy Days of Spring…

IMG_2687Do you see this look on my face people? Yep – that is right I want to play and do something of substance and it seems the parental’s want a mellow day! What on earth is a mellow day? Seriously, if I am moving and getting into all sorts of trouble why cannot my pack follow suit?

As usual at Casa de Perry we have been on the go. Mom last weekend was in Albuquerque, New Mexico speaking at a Sweet Success conference to the Navajo Diabetes Educators. Apparently she had a good time WITHOUT me since I’m not allowed to travel on planes. I’m not so great in the car so planes might be challenging for me.

Next week Mom is off to Massachusetts again for another Motivational Interviewing training and then to see Auntie Marjorie in New Jersey. Dad and I will be staying at home to have a boy’s week, which I love because that means extra snacks and playtime in the house.

After Mom gets back they are planning a few trainings in Central California, which I am excited about because I will get to hang out in the country.  I’m not sure what the motivating is all about since I’m plenty motivated to do what needs to be done so I”m not sure why these humans need that?  Shows we are still the superior race!

I did hear Dad talk about maybe going up to SLO in July to visit my grandparents and hang out with family up there. I do like a good road trip, although it requires that car thing again.  Hmmm…

Well that is a quick update folks so back to lounging on this mellow weekend. Probably a lot of people are having a mellow weekend because it was a big one with the Kentucky Derby and the Mayweather / Pacquiao fight which we did not watch either.

The weather in Santa Monica is a bright, warm 75 degrees. By the way, did I tell you Mom keeps looking at her wrist? She’s more than a bit obsessed with her new thing I believe they call an Apple Watch. Apparently she’s one of the only people in town that seems to have one. She says it helps her keep track of her “steps” whatever that means.  I’m not sure why it’s important since I get LOTS Of those but as long as that shiny thing is not more special than ME!

Road Trip…

photo-2I like road trips just as long as they are not too long and I get lots of breaks to check out the sights along the way. This past weekend Dad and I took a boys trip to SLO to see the grand units and hang out at my club up there Thousand Hills Pet Resort.

It’s a cool place where I can play with other dogs, run outside in the dirt and smell the country air. I have been there before and they take great care of me and the other dogs. I haven’t had the opportunity to stay in one of the “cabin/house” areas for boarding but I am keeping my paws crossed for next time. The best part is I got a bath and came home all fresh with a great mani/pedi. They really know how to hook a pooch up.

That said…the trip did not start out too great. As you may already know I am not really into cats. Unfortunately they remind me of the PITAS in our backyard a little too much and when I see them I cannot help myself. I just go POSTAL!

photoIn the first five minutes of getting to the grandparents I was good until I saw their cat Sassy. Now I have had a few encounters with her before and she always runs and hides quickly. This time she just stayed in the chair and challenged me to a stare down. Dad had me on the leash and was lying on the floor.

I was good but I was not having that kitty win the stare down. She looked a little heavy so I thought I could take her.  She needs Mom’s services but I didn’t feel the need to share that information with her since after all, she is just a cat. I’m not weightist, it’s just that I’m not fond of these creatures so why offer any help?

The next thing I know the cat hissed and I lunged forward with ferocious barking all the while Dad had my leash and I was dragging him and got tangled up. To make matters worse my pride was hurt as that cat got away and she’s not nearly as fast as I am!

Apparently I will not be getting a kitty for Christmas, as I just want to chase and make them run. Not very nice of me I know but those furry creatures make me CRAZY!

All in all it was a good trip since I got to be in the country and escape the big city. However, I really wanted to get home to see Mom. She has been working like a dog (Ha Ha I made a funny) and I wanted to give her some support.

Newsflash….Major stuff going on in the world so please say your prayers for people’s safety. It was a very mild day in Santa Monica, reporting in at a sunny breezy 74 degrees.

OK folks that is all for the Perry report this week!

Peace and Love to all (Mom says I even have to say that for cats so okay – peace to the cats!)

My Busy Week

photo-2Hello People!

This has been one fun busy week with lots of new people involved!

As you are well aware Mom does these Motivational Interviewing workshops but I don’t need motivation so not sure why anyone else would?? The important thing is she’s meeting all these fun people and I got to visit one group this week at Westside Family Health Center. The best part was Dad and I walked there since it’s close to the house, I got my picture taken with all the fun folks AND of course all pets and loves were abundant so no complaints here.

photo-3Next, I got to spend some quality time with my little friend Miami who came over to play and give me more love and attention. It’s been hot so we spent some time hanging out on the cool floor and I hope she comes back soon with her pretty Mom Jennifer. The little people always have more energy than the older parentals so they are always welcome in Casa de Perry.

And finally the parental units had to go to San Bernardino to do another Motivational Interviewing training at weCare, a group of pharmacists helping people with diabetes. Since it was far and they needed a nice place for the day for me for the day, I got to hang out at the Pooch Hotel. It is a really cool with lots of fun people and fellow four-legged friends. They even have a swimming pool but I did not get to go into that room. Maybe next time.

And finally I watched Dad pack up my crate and put it in the car. I overheard them talk about how him and I were going to go up to SLO to visit his parental units for a couple of days. I’m excited about going up the coast but not about the car ride.

The weather has been humid and muggy here in Santa Monica so nothing all that interesting from the Weather Weimaraner today.

Love and till next week,

Perry
