Any Advice For Me The Big Brother?

07 Sep


Hey my friends – I need your help once again please.  As you know,  I got a new brother.  This is Houdini to the right and he is a 12 week old Yorkshire Terrier.  I’ve decided already that he’s not that bad.  He’s kind of fun and always excited to see me.  He’s pretty cool.  I’m sharing my toys with him and helping him adjust to life here at the Hotel Thompson.

This is where I need you my friends.  Do you have advice, suggestions or ideals for me to make sure the little guy is welcomed and settles in okay?  Anything would be helpful.

And I want you to know that I have talked to him about all of you my friends and about my blog.  I’ve even read him some postings – which he just runs around laughing and barking.  When he’s up to it, I told him that he could have his own corner and post.  See, I’m sharing. 🙂 ❤

    Well, you’re starting off just right by sharing your toys. That’s a big thing. Woo HOooooooo! Next, remember to take him out to poop and pee every time he wakes up from his nap and every time he eats. If you walk with him, he’ll think it’s fun! No wait….you don’t like grass on your dainty feet. Forget that idea. Well, let’s see.

    I think you’re doing just fine, but I’ll give this some thought. I wish I had you for a brother. We’d take walkies (on the sidewalk) together, we’d nap together, we’d snort and bark together.

    How much fun would that be???? Stu

      OMP Stu – that would be SO MUCH FUN! Mommy has the little tyke just about potty trained inside using a wee pad. I mean hey – how hard could that be? She did potty train me inside, right? Snorts. He’s had a couple of accidents though and I’ve snorted with him about his mishaps. Daddy even bought him some of his ‘own’ toys yesterday. Of course, I helped daddy pick them out so you can imagine what they look like – snorts. I’m helping him and I’m really trying. He’s not bad for a little guy. Thanks for the information. You’re the best! XOXO – Bacon

    I think the perfect mix is humor and patience… and time, of course. :o)

      That definitely is the case bro. And you know – the little guy is HYPER. He has so much energy. I don’t know where he’s storing. But so far, Hemi has only slapped him on the fanny twice. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    I think you’re already being a great big brother! But then, I’m biased when it comes to you, Bacon! ❤ Ellie

    Well, sharing is great….good start. Maybe give your little bro a nickname just you use on him. He’ll feel special then….not “you disgusting fur ball”. Something endearing.

      Snorts – that’s good. I called him Who Who today. Mommy laughed at me. But that’s true. I need to come up with something for him – that’s fitting. Great one – thanks my friend. XOXO – Bacon

    Gosh Bacon I have NO “barky thing” experience so really don’t know how to deal with them other than to run FAST when they chase me. I know that you’re being the very BESTEST big brother ever though so I think whatever you do – it will be RIGHT!

    Hugs, Sammy

      Aaaww – you have faith in this little oinker. Thank you cousin. I’m trying to be a good big brother. I really am. I even went shopping with daddy this weekend looking for some toys just for Houdini. I even found some that I’ll sure next week. XOXO – Bacon

    You’re a kind bro Bacon and the little fella will go far, if he listens to you 😉

      aaww – shuffles hooves. Thanks my friends. I hope so. He’s a good guy so far. He really is. XOXO – Bacon

    Be patient use kind words. Sharing is good. He might like it if you tell him a story around bed time. It is fact you are spending time with him he will enjoy the most. Thd story doesn’t have to make sence just no scary stories before bed or nap whenever you decide is better time to tell him one.

    • PigLove

      09/07/2014 at 8:33 pm

      Got it. Mom has been telling us both stories together. I even let him jump all over me tonight like I was his personal jungle gym. Does that count? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    My advice is don’t bite his head while he’s eating. Long ago when I was in foster care, big dogs bit my head and ate my food. They left behind scabs and scars and I’m pretty sure mt food-gobbling issues stem from there. So yeah. Don’t bite Houdini’s tiny head.

    Love and licks,

    • PigLove

      09/07/2014 at 8:37 pm

      Ouchie! I’m so sorry that happened to you my little buddy. I would never do that to you or Houdini. No way! I wouldn’t want anyone doing that to me either. Those other pooches were just bullies and there’s no place for bullies! Especially when they try to hurt my friend. Hogs and snout kisses. XOXO – Bacon

    the best thing – make sure your mom and dad cuddle you both at the same time – that way you both feel special. He will also need to be socialized…so lots of walks and trips to the pet store, make sure he get use to other people and other doggies

    • PigLove

      09/07/2014 at 8:39 pm

      Snorts. He is definitely getting socialized. There nothing like watching peeps play pass the puppy. It’s kind of funny to watch to tell you the truth. XOXO – Bacon

    once he has some vaccinations, socialize, socialize and even know he is little obedience class really does wonders. Give him lots of love, hugs and kisses.

    • PigLove

      09/07/2014 at 8:44 pm

      Classes do sound awesome for the little lad. He is picking up things really fast. Do you know he already knows how to play fetch? I was astonished. As for shots, he has one more set in 3 weeks. I know he will be glad! XOXO – Bacon

    Lots of good suggestions. We haven’t had a dog for a very long time. Sounds like your doing pretty good already.

      Thanks. I think so. Some excellent advice on here today for sure my friend! XOXO – Bacon

    Hi Bacon you are the best big brother ever. My advise is he has a very small part of the house that is for him only and no one else is allowed to go there. So if he gets tired or nervous he go to his own safe spot. Say hi to him from me. 🙂

    • PigLove

      09/07/2014 at 9:34 pm

      This is most excellent advice Auntie Sharon. I will certainly make sure he has “his” space. XOXO – Bacon

    09/07/2014 at 9:49 pm

    You seem to be doing pretty good Bacon. Just keep a good eye on him and keep him safe. Don’t want him to get lost or hurt. You are a great big brother 🙂

    • PigLove

      09/07/2014 at 10:44 pm

      Aaww. Thanks my friend. I am keeping a close eye on the little guy. He intrigues me so very much! Such a hoof-ful. Snorts.

    Share treats that he can have and snuggle with him at night and during nap time.
    You are such a good sport. Ali would never tolerate another critter other than the guinea piggies and ted the hamster.

    • PigLove

      09/07/2014 at 10:46 pm

      Snorts. I wasn’t too thrilled in the beginning. I’ve grown more used to it trust me. He makes us all feel young at heart with all of his energy. XOXO – Bacon

    Sounds like you’ve started off on the right foot anyway Bacon! Just remember that no matter how annoying he is, it’s in the job description to love him. Cocoa always winds me up but I look after her!

      09/08/2014 at 9:03 am

      That’s excellent advice my friends. Thanks. I will definitely remember that in the future. He’s small. He’s demanding. And yeah he can be a little annoying but you’re right. He’s my brother. XOXO – Bacon

    As an older brother myself (Wally) the best advice I can give you, you have already implemented: sharing! It works both ways and the sooner you teach the little guy the benefits of sharing the sooner you both will be reaping the rewards of shared toys, treats etc. I know I don’t always bark it and I know I can be a grumpy bum butt I love that little brother of mine.
    Wally (and Sammy)

      09/08/2014 at 9:04 am

      aaww – that’s excellent advice my friends. I have been letting him use my toys. Me and dad went shopping for him Saturday and I even picked out some new toys for him. But I wanted him to have something that was all his as well. Excellent advice guys! XOXO – Bacon
