Friends – If you get a chance, you *must* check out mom’s food blog here. You will NOT be disappointed. Those pictures of hers just make me want to lick the computer screen. YUM-YUM! Don’t forget to let her know what you think. ❤
Oh and my friends – I have to give a special shout out to my cousin Sammy. I received not only a Christmas card in the mail from him yesterday but these oh so cute and adorable gifts. I just ❤ the tin can of Elf on the Shelf. This guy looks nice… unlike the Don Juan at my house. And mom has fallen in love with the sock coin purse. OMP – she and I *both* squealed with excitement. I’m the luckiest piggy in the world to have such amazing friends. Thank you cousin!
Oh my friends something has happened. Something BIG. Do you hear me – B.I.G. And it happened to Houdini. But I’m getting ahead of myself as usual. Some of you have missed mommy on your blogs, texts or emails. You see mommy has been sick for a couple of weeks now. In fact, last Sunday mommy had to go to emergency care. She has been feeling icky and had this horrendous cough that just wouldn’t go away. The cough was so bad Sunday that she couldn’t catch her breath and she passed out. It was early morning and we were all asleep except for her and Houdini. Fortunately Houdini woke her up by jumping on her and licking her face. After that, mom and dad went to the emergency care. After a lot of tests, x-rays, a breathing treatment and an EKG for safety, mom was diagnosed as having severe bronchitis. She came home that afternoon with lots of medicines and has been resting every since. We are all taking turns checking on her and nursing her back to health.
I tell you all of this so you know where mommy’s head is – sick in a cloud. Fast forward a couple of nights ago and little Houdini was playing in the front room with mommy watching from the couch. Let me show you a picture of how cute, small and adorable he is 🙂 You’ll thank me for this picture in a few minutes. I promise you.
Houdini was playing with his puppy – it’s a stuffed teddy bear. He was pouncing at it, barking at it and pretty much attacking it like he normally does. He looks like he is well… how shall I say it… humping it. There you go – snorts. Last month mom talked to his vet about the humping part. The vet assured mom that it really wasn’t that but more of a domineering kind of thing of who is in charge. Do you see where I’m going with this story? Hold on – it gets better.
So, there he is in position ‘playing’ with his puppy when all of a sudden he whines and looks at mommy deep afraid. Well that got mommy off of the sofa in no time flat and also woke me up to look and see what was wrong. When she looked at Houdini, it looked like he had something stuck to his butt. Mommy thinking was that maybe he had a little poo stuck back there and couldn’t get it out so she was going to help the little guy out – see what mommy does for us ❤
Well, she walked over and picked the little guy up, flipped him over and son of a nutcracker it wasn’t a piece of poo. She immediately told daddy that Houdini was broken. Wacks my forehead with my piggy hoof – broken? Mommy had no clue. No don’t get me wrong. My mom is a smart woman but she had no freaking clue of shall we say Houdini’s ‘manly’ parts. We all started laughing so hard that daddy almost fell off of the sofa. Poor mom – she was shocked that her little baby is now a man. But then you should have seen Houdini’s face as well – he was scared. He didn’t know what was happening. And daddy was no help because poor mommy was out of it. There she was holding Houdini with all of his junk exposed, she’s sick and coughing, worried about her broken baby and we were no help. Daddy finally found his voice and told her what it was. Mommy’s response? Priceless I’m telling you. She said quote, “Well it’s been so long since I’ve seen one.” OMP (oh my pig)! And then – OMP – wait for it and remember mom was on medication. She said, “Oh my goodness. I have the John Holmes of puppies!” That’s when I lost it and started snorting and rolling on the floor.
Daddy never to miss a beat said, “Well what did you expect when you bought him his first leather jacket this past weekend?” Oh have mercy! I know this is something so simple – a part of nature if you will – but it was so hilarious with mommy being sick and taking medication. It was definitely a priceless moment.
And yes, things did finally straighten up if you know what I mean – snorts. She finally handed Houdini to daddy and told him it was that time for the boy to man talk. So, daddy tucked Houdini into bed that night and he, me and Hemi got ‘the talk’. Lord have mercy so that’s what that is – snorts and rolls around laughing. Have your parents had ‘that’ talk with you yet? My tummy is hurting from laughing so hard. Gotta stop now. Take care my friends!
