Thank you so very much my friends for making Bacon’s Show and Tell a great place to be every month.
This month – let’s discuss one item that you received as a gift that you absolutely HATED. I mean despised. I mean you wanted to toss your cookies because it was that awful. You get the meaning. Tell us all about it.
Now is the time to tell us ALL about it. Share it with us on Bacon’s Show and Tell scheduled for Friday, May 29th. Remember to link your blogs to this one so we can all share. Mark your calendars and I hope to see you here my friends – oinks.
Barks my friend. Hope you had a terrific week. I know last week I showed you a picture of me on mom’s chaise. This week, I’m attaching a picture of me on dad’s sofa. I like to take my power naps high up on his pillows. They are so soft and comfy!
I also wanted to tell you about a new game I’ve learned this week. It’s called Hide and go Seek. It’s awesome! Every night around 8:30-9:00PM, it’s bedtime for us anipals. Mom tells us to go get settled in our room and she will be in there soon. Bacon goes like a champ he is. But me… why? Why do I need a bedtime? So I usually just keep hanging out in the living room with dad until mom goes to our room to tuck us in and tell us a story.
Well my new game is not to be caught – barks. That’s right I said it. Not be caught and not do what I’m told. I will hide under the couch or the chaise or on the bottom shelf of the book shelf. Mom tries to find me. And then when she sees me, I run to the next spot thus playing hide and go seek. I mean hey the woman needs her exercise, right? Then mom does something weird. When she FINALLY catches me, she fusses at me. What? Maybe I don’t want to go to bed – yawns – maybe I’m a big dog now – double yawns. I don’t need no stinkin’ bedtime. Passes out asleep before mom can put me in bed…..
Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well. Happy weekend!
Friends – If you get a chance, you *must* check out mom’s food blog here. You will NOT be disappointed. Those pictures of hers just make me want to lick the computer screen. YUM-YUM! Don’t forget to let her know what you think. <3
Snorts – you see this is a funny story. There comes a time in a little doggie’s life that he needs a bath. Some things are instilled in a pet’s mind that he knows what is coming. This is one of those times. I got to watch from the sidelines and took some pictures… and of course snorted a couple of times here and there. You know because of the little guys antics. He can really be funny when he wants to be.
See first there was the, “Houdini come here it’s bath time.” As soon as I heard those words, I knew it was on for some fun times. See, I don’t run from bath time. I enjoy bath time. I think it’s fun to stomp my feet and blow bubbles in the water. Houdini on the other hand, he likes to be a clown.
He ran around the front room hiding. In fact, you can see him in this picture. He thinks since you can’t see his face, you can’t see him… regardless of the point that his wahoo is in the air – snorts with piggy laughter. What a clown huh?
But it gets better. I ran into the bathroom where mommy was headed once Houdini was caught. Once caught, he was fine. He cuddled and played and licked mommy. That’s when I noticed it in the bathroom. You are asking what pig – what did you notice?
Look at this bottle and what is marked – here you go:
“Remember to eliminate all escape routes and in advance (a tip: once your pet is slippery wet he or she is suddenly smarter and faster than you are.)”
Oh my goodness – who writes these instructions? I want to high hoof them – it’s great! It’s fantastic. It made me oink! It made mom oink…. okay maybe laugh or chuckle or maybe snort.
But all is good afterwards. Look at the cute little poochie now. All squeaky clean. Sparkly if you will.
And if you look a long time at the picture, it starts to look like Houdini is smiling. So maybe… just maybe… I’m not the only one who enjoys a nice bath.
What do you think? You think he enjoyed the bath?
Oh and I have to give it to the little guy – excellent choice in hide and go seek. Butts up anyone? Snorts with piggy laughter.
I’ve got a lot on my piggy mind lately. Nothing particular just aimless ramblings from my point of view. I do a lot of listening around the Hotel Thompson. Sometimes it’s better to listen than oink. So today I’m going to share some of those things that I’ve heard.
Mom has an ear ache. She told daddy she could hear it slushing. I’m not sure what that means but it doesn’t sound good.
Houdini got groomed this week. Now he’s walking around like he owns the place. Go figure huh?
Coming up this week is a long weekend. I’m glad. I need some extra snuggles from mom. I think she could use it too.
I’ve gotten more used to the feel of grass on my hooves. I still don’t like it but I don’t hide from it anymore. I still think of myself as more of an air conditioned piggy than a hot piggy.
There’s something big that has happened in my life. I’m hoping to share more about it next month. It’s huge. It’s been a little over a month and I’ve been adjusting to it. It’s big. Heck, we’ve all been adjusting to it here at the Hotel Thompson. Just wait until you find out about it. You’ll be thrilled too.
Mom has started that DIEt thing again. Lord help us all. She says that she needs to do it so dad can get aboard the DIEt thing. Shakes piggy head. Help me. I’m saying that now because I can tell it’s going to be rough the next couple of months.
Hemi should join that show called Fear Factor. Mom says so because he has no fear. He has been jumping around the house from shelves to couch to mom’s chaise. Of course mom gets on to him but he still does it. I heard mom tell dad that Hemi was pushing her over the edge and it was a short trip. I don’t get that because I haven’t seen any edges like that in the house.
Mouse Girl has gained weight. Maybe she needs to be put on the DIEt thing. I’m not sure. She is what did dad say, butt heavy. And of course, Houdini has the biggest crush on her. I mean huge. Houdini keeps chasing after her and you want to hear something funny. Of course, I don’t get it but mom and dad laugh hysterically when daddy says it. Every time Houdini chases Mouse Girl, dad tells Houdini, “Leave her alone Houdini. She’s too much pussy for you.” What? I don’t get it.
Snorts! Rolling with piggy laughter here my friends. Oh daddy – will he ever learn not to make bets with mommy? This one really caught him too. He lost the best. If he lost the bet, he had to go get a pedicure. Too funny. I know other men get them but daddy has always been dead set against it. You know the same old blah blah ‘manly men don’t do it’ blah blah.
Well, let’s say that daddy keeps up his end of the bargains. And better yet – here’s the proof that I was able to get off of mom’s phone. Way to go daddy. Maybe next time you can get your toenails painted a pretty shiny pink color :) Snorts
