Happy Monday my friends!! I hope everyone had the bestest of time and if you were off yesterday – had a wonderful LONG weekend. If you read my blog Saturday, you read that it was International Bacon Day. A day all to me – happy piggy dance. Mom got up and fixed me piggy pancakes and we played for the longest time. We even snuggled on the sofa for a while watching television. I should have know something was up. Mom was happy like normal but it seemed like her and dad were talking in ‘code’. You know the one my friends. Lots of winks, nudges and spelling out words. What they don’t understand though is that I can spell some things. I knew that b.a.b.y. meant baby. Of course, I assumed they were talking about me or maybe Mouse Girl, the only girl purr thing here at the Hotel Thompson. Around noon, mom and dad said they were picking up Nana for a field trip. That’s not out of the ordinary. They go off at times to play. But you see my friend, this is where my day took a twist of a different kind.
Do you remember me telling you last week that mom’s biological baby clock was ticking like a TIME BOMB? Well, it exploded Saturday. See the evidence to the left? This is my new brother. Yep. I said new brother. May I please introduce to you Houdini who is a 12 week old Yorkshire Terrior. He’s full blooded – whatever that means. I mean, aren’t we *all* full blooded? But mommy and daddy says that means something and that he has papers. Shakes my piggy head. I don’t understand that part at all? I have papers. I used them to wizzle on sometimes – snorts. Not such a big deal to me. I still don’t get that. If you understand it, please explain it to me my friends okay.
I bet you are wondering how the little tyke got such a big name like Houdini aren’t you. Well, mom and dad are crating the little guy. And I say little and mean LITTLE. He doesn’t even weigh a pound yet. Shakes piggy head. Strange little fury guy. But anyway I digress. Mom and dad put him in his crate in their bedroom and went to the pet store to pick up some supplies for him. When they came home, he had escaped out of his crate and was wondering around their bedroom. Mom said he was a cute little escape artist therefore Houdini stuck. Personally I don’t think mom shut his crate all the way.
I’ve met the little guy as daddy calls him with love. He’s a lot of fun. I think when he gets bigger – snorts – he’ll be a great friend. Mommy says that ‘bigger’ means probably no more than 10 pounds. Can you imagine that? And trust me, he’s a tough guy. That’s what I ❤ about him. Well that he’s tough and that he chased Mouse Girl down the hall and under mom/dad’s bed yesterday – snorts. He may be small but he’s not afraid of anything. Maybe mom and dad should have named him Killer?
And he’s full of puppy spirit. He plays hard but he also sleeps hard. He fits right in here with all of us. Mom took this video of him being spunky. I hope you enjoy it my friends.
Oh and P.S. Daddy says that his roots may be from Yorkshire, England but he thinks he’s got some French in him too. Why do you ask? Because he likes to French kiss – snorts you have to be careful because he will give you some tongue with his puppy kisses.

what a great addition to the Hotel Thompson! I bet you will love Houdini! Will he sleep together with you in your room? where will he sit when you drive with Albert? Tell me all, bro! btw: he has papers, means that he can buy a beer in a bar without using a fake canadian id card with residence TOTONTO like my dad once as he was 15 :o)
09/02/2014 at 1:04 pm
Oh cool – so he can buy beer for our parties when mom and dad aren’t here. Oh – snaps – ssshhh – that’s our secret okay. So far, I’ve seen him. I’ve went nose to nose with him – of course chaperoned with mom. He’s playful. He’s kind of cool. Of course he can be loud sometimes. For a little guy, he carries a BIG bark. He’s sleeping in mom/dad’s room right now in his crate. I call it doggy jail and protest for him – snorts. Dad has baby duty today while mom is at the worky place. I think Houdini kind of misses her like I do but he’ll adjust. We will both attach mom tonight with lots of kisses. As far as Albert. Oh dear piggy heavens. Mom took him on a road trip Sunday to get used to being in the car. He’s getting the hang of it which is cool. XOXO – Bacon
09/02/2014 at 1:02 pm
Congratulations on your new sibling! He looks like quite the little firecracker. We hope you two will be having lots of fun together in the future!
09/02/2014 at 1:18 pm
Thank you my friend. I know we will have some great fun and adventures together. He’s really a lot like me except for a barky voice instead of a snort voice. Eerie huh? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

09/02/2014 at 1:10 pm
Congrats! Can’t wait to see more of you two in action.
09/02/2014 at 1:19 pm
aaww – thanks my friends. It’ll be some time from what mom says but it will happen eventually. Mommy says we have to be chaperoned right now for my safety. Cause you know that little Houdini thinks he’s a big dog and may hurt me. I completely understand. XOXO – Bacon

Best wishes Molly
09/02/2014 at 1:20 pm
aaww – I’ll be sure to tell the little tyke that in a bit. He’s a handful and so much fun so far. I know he’ll be on here soon and yep – I’ll share my blog with him. You know – because we’re brothers. 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

Congrats on your new addition! He is very cute and I’m sure you will enjoy watching him grow up and share your life with him.
09/02/2014 at 1:20 pm
I think I really will. I know he’s going to love mom. She’s so loving. I think he kind of misses her today but she’ll be home soon. Then it’s cuddle time for the both of us. We can’t wait! XOXO – Bacon
09/02/2014 at 1:32 pm
He sure is a cutie! Will he have a “job” to do on the bloggy Bacon? You know – like “Houdini Hints” where he gives advice on escaping crates, houses, the vet office, etc.??????
09/02/2014 at 2:00 pm
Snorts – he might keep his diary here. I’m in talks with him – you know trying to help him along in his life here at the Hotel Thompson. He’s a sprite little thing – very fast as you can tell from his video. I think he’s a great addition here so far. XOXO – Bacon
09/02/2014 at 2:07 pm

09/02/2014 at 2:21 pm
That’s what that means? WOW! I did notice that he didn’t have those alien markings like I have. So those aliens haven’t abducted him yet. Shows huh? That sounds like a lot of work to this little oinker – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
09/02/2014 at 3:45 pm
Yep Bacon dat’s what dat means. And it is a lot of work, but hoomans seem to want all dat. Course it kuld be sum work fur hims too ifin da hoomans decide to let hims be a daddy. MOL
09/02/2014 at 5:01 pm
Snorts. They better not let him be a daddy. That means babies. I have to draw the line somewhere – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
09/02/2014 at 6:07 pm

WELCOME to Blogville Houdini. You have a GRRRREAT Big Brother and he will show you the Ropes, and Beds and Stuffies and Balls and Treats and stuffs.
09/02/2014 at 4:58 pm
Snorts – You know I will my friends. The little guy has had a rough day today missing mom. I’m going to let him jump her first when she gets home from the worky place. See, I can share 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
Lassie and Benji
09/02/2014 at 3:00 pm
Congratulations! Bet Houdini can work his magic in no time, and magically make treats appear for you.
09/02/2014 at 4:58 pm
Head straight up. You know my friends I didn’t think about that. That is most excellent information – thanks! XOXO – Bacon
09/02/2014 at 3:04 pm
Oooooohhhhhhh!!! Awwwwwwwww!!!!!! Your new brother is super cute!!! 😀 Please tell him we said hi! 😀 But why being full-blooded would be something special is beyond us! Aren’t we all full-blooded!? (*scratches head*) 😉 xx Roxy & Tigerlino ❤
09/08/2014 at 10:16 am
That’s what I say – we are all full blooded and full of life… unless you are a vampire then maybe not so much – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

You do know that terrier really means terror?! You better watch your tail Bacon!
09/02/2014 at 4:59 pm
I’m watching my tail because the little guy doesn’t have much of one – snorts. You should have seen him last night trying to chase his little bob tail. It was hilarious. I was rolling around laughing *with* him of course. XOXO – Bacon

09/02/2014 at 3:37 pm
Oh my gosh Houdini is adorable – but let me warn you about ‘little brothers’ – THEY will try stealing your blog, your favorite toys, your peeps attention……make sure you put your hoof down and let him know who is the boss 🙂 🙂
09/02/2014 at 5:00 pm
Oh I most certainly will my friends. Thanks for that great advice. This guy so far is not too bad. He’s tiny but carries a big bark. And, he’s pretty cool. But, I’ll keep you posted on that for sure! XOXO – Bacon
09/02/2014 at 5:30 pm
Wow Bacon, you did have an exciting wheekend! He is SO cute. Now whee can feel even closer to you for his routes are where whee live. He connects us, buddy! Hehe, what are you going to do with such a little thing? So very fluffy! What if our hoomans brought back a dog? -gulps- Whee’re joking, he’s gorgeous ❤

09/02/2014 at 6:47 pm
Oh he’s so cute! Love the name. Congrats.
09/02/2014 at 7:13 pm
OH TRIPLE SQUEEEEEEE!!!!! Awww he is so wonderful!!!! Welcome Houdini!!! ❤
09/03/2014 at 8:47 am
aaww thank you Auntie Sharon. ❤ XOXO – Bacon
09/02/2014 at 10:10 pm
YAY! Welcome Houdini! Now you gotta teach him not to bark at squirrels or unicorns in the backyard….
09/03/2014 at 8:57 am
This is true. And he can’t bark at my Bigfoot either. He’s shy and might run away. I can’t have that happening again. It took him a long time to come back last time. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
09/02/2014 at 10:59 pm
great news!!!! the family is growing…along with the love you’ll all share…. ♥
09/03/2014 at 8:58 am
aaww – piggy blushes. Thank you my friend. It has been a fun past couple of days with the little tyke. XOXO – Bacon
09/03/2014 at 2:52 am
Congratulations on the new sibling Bacon!! Mom says he is “too cute”…we say “meh, whatever”. If you need any tips on being a big brother just oink, ok?
Wally (the big brother) and Sammy
09/03/2014 at 9:03 am
Thank you so very much guys. I might need to get some helpful hints from ya’ll. The Little Man as daddy calls him is kind of needy right now but mommy says that’s because he is what they call a baby. I remember faintly going through that age. I’m okay with that. As long as I still have my snuggle time with mommy – it’s all good. XOXO – Bacon
09/03/2014 at 9:22 am
All the best things are from Yorkshire, England my pal! Welcome Houdini
09/03/2014 at 9:39 am
Thank you my sweet friend. I actually thought about you when I heard mom and dad talking about where Houdini is from originally. So very cool! XOXO – Bacon
09/03/2014 at 9:43 am
Awww I like that I was thought about! Hope you two are getting along
09/03/2014 at 9:45 am
Not bad so far. We haven’t been totally integrated – I think that’s what mommy called it – yet. We are together only supervised right now. The same thing with the purr things and rock clan. Soon though – XOXO – Bacon

I CAN’T BREATHE!!!! THIS IS BIG NEWSSSSSSS!!!!!! Oh my friend. You have a baby brother. He is TOOOO cute. Not as cute as you, but CUUUUUTTTEEEEE!!!!!
I have to rest. This is tooooo much.
09/03/2014 at 9:44 am
Snorts. I didn’t think you had seen him yet. He doesn’t even weigh a pound yet. Rolls piggy eyes – he may be small but he thinks he’s a big doggy! XOXO – Bacon
09/03/2014 at 10:10 am
He is adorable, what fun you are going to have ! Enjoy !
Loves and licky kisses

OMD…we are just catching up on our reading and just learned the good news! Congratulations Bacon…a little brother! How much fun! All SHE keeps saying is aww awww awww. I think that means he’s cute!
09/03/2014 at 1:04 pm
aaww – thanks little guy. So far, he has brought a lot of entertainment to us here at the Hotel Thompson. We’ve only had him since Saturday but it seems like he’s been here forever! And he ❤ to dress up. You'll just snort when you see him. XOXO – Bacon
09/03/2014 at 2:18 pm
Oh Wow Bacon – we did think this might happen – what wonderful news! Hope that Houdini learns some manners on the cat front but wish the two of you a huge amount of fun 😀
09/03/2014 at 2:32 pm
Thanks my dear friends. He’s got a lot of spunk in him right now. He just wants to play and have fun. I think once the purr things say hey and accept him, he won’t be so blatantly chasing them around the house – which is kind of funny watching thought right now because he’s so small. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
09/03/2014 at 3:03 pm
Adorable!!! Nothing like a youngster to cheer up the place!!!
09/03/2014 at 3:18 pm
Oh he most certainly is doing that my friend. Snorts – XOXO – Bacon

What an adorable “wind-up toy!” Seriously though, your new little brother is a cutie. Teach him everything he needs to grow up to be a great little brother.
09/23/2014 at 11:01 am
Seriously – he is that – a windup toy. That is so totally funny! I’m trying my best to teach him everything I know my new friend. Thanks! XOXO – Bacon
