Houdini’s First Toy Destruction

11 Sep


If I didn’t know first hand, I would swear that Houdini has been in contact with my brother Easy in France  Why do you ask?  May I present to you exhibit A to the left.  Yes, that is Houdini’s first destroyed doggy toy.  I’m not sure to feel happy for the little tyke on his total destruction or sad that his favorite ball is now gone like the wind.

You see, this *was* – and *was* is a good word – one of his favorite balls. Did I tell you that he learned to play fetch one day last week?  He would bring this ball to mom, she would throw it down the hallway and he would retrieve it.  Houdini and mom played this game for almost 30 minutes to an hour every night.  But now, the toy has went to ball heaven.

But don’t worry, mommy is buying him his very own miniature tennis ball tonight on the way home from her worky place.  Houdini will be back up in action playing fetch in no time!

      I’m sure he will. I’m sure all of us will. Toy shopping at the dog store means that we *all* win. She’ll bring us *all* something home. That’s the way it works here at the Hotel Thompson. I can’t wait! XOXO – Bacon

    There’s gotta be a first….then the others won’t be such a big deal. I have several furless mice I still play with and enjoy greatly. I stick one under my blankie at night, just in case I get the urge to nibble on something. Better than nibbling on mom. ha

      squeals – that is most excellent advice my friend. Maybe Who-Who needs a little friend to take to bed at night for his midnight munchie needs. I’ll have to get him something tonight. Thanks! XOXO – Bacon

    well done Houdini – you have graduated to class 2 in dogdom. Hint to Mom – buy balls in bulk like we do 🙂

    Easy may be giving little Hoo Hoo coaching via computer on how to destroy stuffies. Easy is the KING of destruction for sure…………

      Yes he is. I think he may be secretly reading all about it on my blog. I wouldn’t put that anything past that little escape artist we call Houdini – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    We think that is a great way to get a new toy. Sorry you have to wait a few hours for a new ball though. Hugs and nose kisses

      I think it is. Can you imagine all of those fun balls? I look at it like this. All of our friends that have crossed the rainbow bridge, they need toys too. So in a way, we are sending them playthings. Right? I XOXO – Bacon

    UMMMMMMMmmmmm could we make a suggestion? Try Racquet Balls instead of Tennis Balls.
    AND… think of toys in terms of a good STEAK… Only the GOOD ones get Nommed to Shreds.

      Oh most definitely. He’s full of energy to the max! He needs play toys that are durable. XOXO – Bacon

      I saw this and thought it was fabulous Auntie Sharon!! I’m so going to print it out and see if mom can ‘attempt’ it. I’m not sure though – snorts – she’s all fingers. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh dear….now Bacon just remember to not leave him with his toys when he has finished sisters doggie had a huge operation after eating half a tennis ball while he was being babysat by my mum (not really dog savvy ..) hugs and loves Fozziemum xx

      Excellent advice my friend. Mom watches him like a little hawk – just like she does all of us. I think that woman has eyes in the back of her head! Really, I do. One word from her of “NO” and we all stand attention. Hey, now that I think of it. I think she has ‘us’ trained. WTP?! When did that happen – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        Hahaahh it happened without you even knowing…like magic 😉 Loves Fozziemum xx

    I used to have a kitty named BearBear and that is what he would do to his toys. LOL. I bet he had a good time too.

      He really did. This one was actually a purr thing toy so it really wasn’t ‘durable’ like it should be. He had fun. We printed the picture for his puppy book. It’s a snort of a good time all around for sure. XOXO – Bacon

    4 paws up for Houdini! butt it’s important to eat the tag of the toys first, so you always know what you ate when it comes out :o)

      09/12/2014 at 9:52 am

      Snorticles brother. I’ll have to remind the little chap of that when he wakes up from one of his gazillion naps. Dude, puppies sleep A LOT, don’t they? And then when they are up, ZOOM – it’s like fast motion. I swear sometimes that kid is on speed – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        I slept a lot too as I was a pup. But since I live in this crib, my mom always gives five to my dad when I fall asleep.. I see that even when my eyes are closed, butt I have no idea why they do that…

        09/12/2014 at 10:39 am

        Snorts. That sounds like my humans. I saw them giving each other high fives last night when the little man went down for the night. I think I even heard a happy sigh of relief. I know they never did that to me. Nope. Surely not. You think? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      • easyweimaraner
