Perkins Update


I have Perkins here for doggy sitting until the end of the month. I am posting this for his dad Brian so he knows that he is doing well & we have had no "accidents" so far, (knocking on wood)....you see, at Christmas when I had Perkins, he jumped up to grab a ball from my hand, pirouetted in the air & landed on his side with a big thump! That earned him a visit to the vet as he sprained his shoulder....poor Perkins. Then the last time we had him he rushed down the stairs to greet Brad & slid all the way down...eeek...thankfully he sustained no injuries that time!
However, we had one teeny tiny minor occurrence last night before agility class....I was ready to leave , had Kort loaded in the van & came back to get Perkins, but I couldn't find him...he sometimes hides when he doesn't want to do something, like go for a walk when it's cold out...anyway, I looked & looked for him but couldn't find him anywhere, I was just starting to panic when I tried the closet, there he sat, pleased as punch looking at me as if to say "it's about time you fool!", & then he calmly exited!
I guess he had wandered in when I was grabbing a shirt & I didn't notice, oops!!
Don't worry Brian, he was only there for about 10 minutes...totally safe LOL!, whew!

LoL. One time Guiness followed me into the hall bathroom and when I left I shut the door. I didnt know I had locked him in there. I started looking for him. I got mad at my husband and accused him of going in the garage and the dog followed and ran away. We looked every where in the neighborhood. I was beside myself. I finally go back in and call him and call him. I then decided to go room to room. He never barked or anything. I open the bathroom door and there he was. Boy did I have egg on my face. I had to appoligize to my husband. LoL. Diana

What a character! Hopefully that's the only event that happens during this visit! Maybe he thinks he's a collie when he's there! :)

Perkins might be the cutest dog ever!!! I love him on that bed..it's so huge and he just doesn't take up too much room. When you come to California can you bring him??????????????????????????????????
