Houdini Update

08 Sep


Okay my friends – can you say FIELD TRIP?  I spoke to daddy over the weekend and told him that we needed to go on a field trip for the little guy and buy him some of his very own toys.  Not that I mind sharing – I don’t.  But I want him to have some things that are just his own.  You can relate, right?

So me and dad went to our local Petsmart and I helped him pick out some cherished toys for the tyke.  I took a picture to share and it’s to the left.  Look familiar – snorts.  Of course, all of them have some type of ‘teething’ help for him.  He seems to be going through the puppy stage of everything needs to be nibbled.  That includes: fingers, toes, hooves, paws, ME – snorts.  Thus, he needed some help in that department.  I think he really likes his new toys we got him.


He played hard with all of them.  Can you guess which one is his favorite so far?  Yep, it would be teething piggy.  Heck, I kind of like that one too.  He’s a lot of fun being chewed.  And of course, he has to check out mom’s feet.  Right now, the little guy is so short and low to the ground that he finds everyone’s feet fascinating.  He follows them everywhere in the Hotel Thompson.  And occasionally, he will lick toes.  Mom just squeals with delight.  I do that to her too 🙂  Silly mom huh?

And don’t think daddy gets left out of the fun.  Houdini is a equal toe licker – snorts that sounds so terribly bad doesn’t it?


And this past Friday, mom took off from the worky place to get Houdini his next set of shots and for a wellness check.  Everything checked out okay.  Can you guess how much he weighed in at this visit?  Go ahead – you’ll never be able to guess.  Ready for it?  A whopping 2.4 pounds!  Man, he’s a cow isn’t it?  Snorts and rolls around laughing.  He goes back to the vet in three more weeks for one more set of puppy shots.  Then he’ll go back for his yearly shots.  The little guy has been poked and prodded so much in the past 12 weeks it’s unreal!

And look at this picture to the left, he is trying to get to dad’s toes under the tray so dad can’t get him.  He’s way too funny the little guy!

So there’s your update on the Houdini.  Stay tuned for more my friends!

    no wonder that he liked the pink piggy the most! I bet he will be your bestest little friend once. I must laugh as I saw the photo with one of your purrsiblings at FB, it’s funny when the cat is bigger than the doggy lol

      Snorticles – too funny. Yep, he really, REALLY wants to play with Hemi, one of the purr things here. They keep getting closer and closer. Over the weekend, they even got nose to nose. And Hemi is pretty small considering. Mouse Girl – geez Louis – she makes about two of Hemi so you can imagine what Houdini looks like next to her – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    oh we forgot the teething – here is a great tip – pop a nyla bone in the freezer for him – the cold will help his gums and the nyla bones are great for chewing on. If you can’t find nyla bones – I nice big rib bone or marrow bone (uncooked) will work too. The bones are too big for him to break and he will love chomping on them

    • PigLove

      09/08/2014 at 5:06 pm

      OMP – that’s an awesome tip. I will so tell this to mommy when she gets home from the worky place. Ya’ll are the greatest my friends – thanks! XOXO – Bacon

    Hey Bacon!
    Wow, that little Houdini is adorable! I like to sniffle stinky shoes so I can totally understand licking toes. BOL Sounds like a super shopping spree!
    Grr and Woof,

      Aaww. Thanks my friend. I’ll have to tell Houdini about shoes. I wonder if he will like them? XOXO – Bacon

    *SIGH* they grow up so fast…at least that’s what mom says. HIGH FIVE PAWS / TROTTERS for being such a pawsome big brother and going shopping for the little guy, that was very sweet of you.

      Thanks guys. It was the least I could do to welcome him to the Hotel Thompson. I’ve noticed when the little booger gets tired out from playing, he drops fast. I mean he can barely keep his head up. It’s kind of hilarious. Do you know what I mean? XOXO – Bacon

    • PigLove

      09/09/2014 at 8:10 am

      Snorticles – isn’t that too funny. Daddy said that Houdini asked the nice vet lady to weigh him again. Houdini *thinks* he weighs 50 pounds and couldn’t believe it was only 2.4 pounds – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
