I Just Know You Are Holding Your Breath For an Update

10 Sep

 Little Man Houdini is really settling in here at the Hotel Thompson.  He’s only been here for 10 days but in some ways – it seems like forever.  I have to admit that he has brought a lot of love and fun here.  I’m glad to say his potty training is coming right along.  He seems to be taking to it very well which is a great thing.  While mom and dad were at the vets office last Friday, they were told that Yorkies can be a little hard headed in this department and of course were given advice on how to said potty train Houdini.  Mom listened, stood her ground, put her hands on her hips and told this peep, “Look, I’ve potty trained a pig.  When you’ve done that, come talk to me.”  Go mom!  She’s right though. I’m house trained. And don’t you ❤ my mom when she gets fierce about one of her ‘kids’?  Snorts.


I thought I would share some pictures that I took of the little guy in the past couple of days.  This one to the left is one of my all time favorites of little Who-Who (see I’ve picked a nick-name for the little guy 🙂

I ❤ it when he stretches out on the floor with his little legs behind him.  Doesn’t that just tug at your heart?  He does this A LOT.  He also rolls around the floor, belly up and makes little chatter noise.  And notice, he’s got some of my toys around him in this picture.  See, I’m still sharing.



Another great picture of Who-Who is this one to the right.  He’s in his little bed playing with some toys.  And yes, some of those toys are the purr things toys.  See, even they are sharing with the little tyke.  And, in this picture you can really see how small Houdini actually is.

Dad said when they were at the vets last week, the doctor told them that Houdini weighed 2.4 pounds.  Houdini said there was no way and demanded the doctor re-weigh him because he had to weigh at least 50 pounds.  Just goes to show you what a ‘killer’ Houdini thinks he is huh?  Snorts.  I wonder where he gets that from in the family?

IMG_0480.JPGAnd I know you are probably wondering how Houdini is getting along with all of us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson.  Well Mouse Girl, one of the purr things here, could care less about him.  She stays high and away from him.  On the other hoof, Hemi (the other purr thing) here is very interested and wants to play with him so very bad.  As you can see in this picture to the left.  See the cat tube – Who-Who likes to drag it all over the house.  Hemi is looking at him to supervise.

And well that brings interaction with this little oinker.  So far, I’ve had supervised interaction.  This is with mom – either me in mom’s lap or mom holding Who-Who.  We have smelled each other.  We’ve even kind of played with our hooves/paws with each other.  The little guy even barks at me from time to time.  Mommy said there will come a day when I can actually play with him but not yet.  She said you can’t be too careful.  I’m not offended at that.  I mean heck, that Who-Who is vicious.  Who knows when he might attack me – right?  Snorts.  So there you go – your dosage of Houdini. 🙂

      This is true bro. The little guy thinks he’s a 50 pound vicious puppy. I’ve gotta get a picture of him playing with one of mom’s stuffed toy dogs. He gives it hell. Yep, I said that. It’s the truth. He barks at it. Pounces it. Roughs it up and threatens its life. It’s quite a show – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    What a cute little fellow….myself I’m not really into dogs ….probably because the dogs around here are vicious. I would like a little dog that I could bring up to be like me and stand alone on his 4 paws but be nice to all anipals. Leave your mark with him Bacon.

      Thanks my friends. This little guy is not too bad. I was hesitant when mom’s biological puppy clock was ticking like a time bomb but I think she made a great choice here. XOXO – Bacon

    Ya all that you hage metioned at hotel Thompson are omnivores so wouldn’t be stretch for ya to nip each other. I know you never would sweet Bacon but its smart safety precaution. I am glad you and Hemi are sharing. I by your descriotion of mg don’t think she fits in tunnel unless your mom bought them small dog tunnel to use as cat tunnel do to mg’s size. He looks big for type of dog he is especially give fact he is still a puppy and young one at that.

    Well they don’t come any cuter than that!! Except for you Bacon. The first picture he looks like the squirrel you sent my critters to play with. I often find it stretched out on the floor in exactly that position! It must be strong because toys don’t usually last long here. Hi Houdini! ❤

    • PigLove

      09/10/2014 at 11:48 pm

      Aaww. It’s because they love that squirrel and don’t want to hurt it. That’s it – snorts. Who-Who was a lot of fun tonight. He played chase with Hemi up and down the halls and didn’t go bed until well after 10pm! Maybe he will sleep the entire night tonight. I know mommy hopes so 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
