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

How’s That WALL working OUT?

fullsizerenderAs you can see that Trump Wall concept really didn’t work out. But then again, from this advantage point I can look out for Hillary to see if she is having any substantial press conferences. All I can gather is politics are more dysfunctional than the neighbor’s dog and my relationship, which is extremely cantankerous.

gabbsI did have a few visitors. The Gabbs came over to see me and give me the proper attention and affections I so require – there are 5 of them, although only 4 came but there was enough loves, hugs and pets to last for a while.  As you can see, I was trying to be non-photogenic.

As for our family we continue to go through closets, drawers, and cabinets…we are cleaning out items. I even had to go through my toy box to give away some of my toys. Life is just too important to be anchored to your stuff.

The weather is starting to cool down a little bit and as the daylight fades faster into darkness, fall is upon us. We are very blessed and thankful to all of you out there.

Love and Peace!

Tis the Post Turkey Day Recap

IMG_3072I had on my mischievous cap during this season. It all started with that lonely cube of butter hidden on the counter wrapped in holiday foil…

It was so appealing – the shiny paper, beautiful yellow ball  of wonderful fat I haven’t had in a while.

Because I am smarter then Dad, I just laid in wait until the perfect moment arose and bam, I was counter surfing covert style. He was “multi-tasking” and was out of the room for a minute and I scored the prize.

Of course I got a crate time out…actually I put myself in the crate and he came looking for me. He found the butter foil and I was caught.

The next day I was hanging out with Dad while he was making corn bread from scratch.  It was taking him forever to make that delicious gluten free corn bread stuffing and Casa de Perry smelt heavenly. After it cooled on top of the fridge, he wrapped it all up and like a fool hid it behind the mixer. Now that is pretty far for even for my super, stretching capabilities.

I again went into stealth mood…wonder, smell, watch and wait.

I was so good that I did not bark when that Sherlock Holmes dog next store tried to antagonize me. Dad gave me one of my Dental Bones, which are 100% natural, no artificial ingredients, gluten free and made in the USA. I love them!

Shortly after that went down he left to go get something out of the garage. When he came back in he had a big surprise!  Isn’t that photo great? Yep that’s right – I got up in the cornbread and had me a second scooby snack. This was followed with “CRATE!”

The next day was the big Turkey Day. Mom was home and she was monitoring me like a hawk since she is ON to me unfortunately. I did get a few treats but nothing like before.

We had an enjoyable holiday but are working on some new adventures. Mom will be doing some Motivational Interviewing webinars, which I like as she will be home and I will get to lounge with her in the office. I’m still not sure why others need motivation since I need none but again we know canines are superior to humans, and us Weims are the smartest breed..

Hope you all had a nice turkey day and if you have extra butter to spare send it over – covertly of course.

The weather has been colder in Santa Monica so the Weather Weimaraner reports a cooler high of 60 degrees today.  Our house is quite chilly so please send blankets but remember to wrap butter in between.

Love,

Perry
