Coming out of hibernation can be so hard! I can feel the warmer weather outside and it’s starting to make me a little frisky. Last night, I ran and ran throughout the house. I like to treat the halls and rooms at the Hotel Thompson as my personal play ground and exercise gym.
There’s always a method to my play time. There’s a fuzzy blanket in my bedroom. I have to go in there first and stretch said fuzzy blanket across the floor. It’s a king size blanket and when I stretch it, it almost touches wall to wall – snort. Then I have to go into the front room and take my king size Egyptian cotton sheet and stretch it out across the front room floor. Then, it’s game time!
I run down the hall, do a lap around my room and high tail it back down the hall to the front room. Once I’m in the front room, I do an about face and high tail it back down the hall to my bedroom and repeat the process. I go back and forth and forth and back usually about five to six times. Then when I’m tired, huffing and puffing, I jump and slide across my blanket rolling myself up in it. I rest for a few and then repeat the process in my bedroom.
Mom caught this picture above on my final tromp throughout the Hotel Thompson. I was so tired that I threw myself down on the floor breathing like there was no tomorrow. Mom actually thought I was going to have a little piggy heart attack. She stretched out on the floor with me and started talking to me trying to calm me down. I was talking to her too. It’s hard coming out of hibernation from the winter!
