Oh Dear Piggy Heavens Above

11 Dec

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.

 IMG_0261.PNGI 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!

        So I hobble up and Oscarcomes running at me speed my people have been killed by rams they are very he comes running at me I see much to my horror his these go out from under his belly all the way up and past his side…and I was his amour de jour.! I was in a real I had to grab a stick and use it to keep him back from me as I limped backwards out of the yard…yes he had his head down and was ready to roll..he had been kicking me with his front eg for weeks…I should have known..needless to say we mad an apt with a vet ..but she lived in we dorve him in the car into town for the snippo..people staring at a black sheep in the car..we got to th vet and the vet and to techs (all female) and myself and fozziedad entered the mean feat with a ram who is stubborn..well the mild seds did not work…he stood there and peed and pooped everywhere wide awake…so the big guns came out…he dropped to the ground (we all supported him) and I held his back legs ..even though he was out to it they still the vet started the procedure..well the more she pulled and snipped his nerves kicked in (no pain trust me a weird thing though )I was battling his legs and fozziedad..where was he…well a room full of women performing the nasty on Oscars bit saw Fozziedad backed into the corner cringing hahahhaha…op done and he came around…we all carried his huge self to the car and off home we came…as we let him out in the paddock I am sure that Felix and Jock were laughing at him…there you go…yikes ! loves Fozziemum..warrior woman 😉 xxx

    I sure hope you are feeling better! Our Mommy has been sick since right before Halloween with a cough & chest congestion that she just can’t seem to get rid of. Great story! I am still laughing!

    • PigLove

      12/11/2014 at 10:11 am

      Snorts- mom is feeling a lot better my friend. It was really bad for a while. The modern technology of medicines is wonderful! She should have went to the doctor several weeks ago with that hacking cough. But she is hard-headed… and to think she calls me pig-headed – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      • Nikitaland

        12/11/2014 at 11:47 am

        Our Mommy should probably head to the docs too, because she has been coughing for almost two months now. Ug. I am glad to hear though that you are feeling better, phew!

      • PigLove

        12/11/2014 at 11:56 am

        YES! Don’t wait. Push your mommy out the door now to go to the doctor and get RX meds. That’s the only thing that gets rid of this icky cough that mom had. She had it too for almost two months. It’s awful! Then when your mom gets back, give her hogs and snout kisses from me okay. XOXO – Bacon

    First we do hope your Mom is feeling better – it is the seasons for colds and bronchitis – make sure she takes good care of her. Now – Houdini – well boys will be boys lets just hope he doesn’t move on from the stuffies to the other critters in the house 🙂

      12/11/2014 at 10:13 am

      Snorts – I know that’s right. It hasn’t happened again and hopefully he will keep things in control – snorts.
      Mom is feeling so much better now. We read this morning that you were feeling under the weather as well. Hogs and snout kisses to a speedy recovery for YOU! XOXO – Bacon

    With the aminals in the house, I am surprised this has not come up before (ha ha, get it?)

    However, if that was the first time I had to deal with that delicate situation, I may have accidentally dropped the dog at that point.

    Hope Mom is better! Hope Dad has stopped laughing! 😀

    • PigLove

      12/11/2014 at 10:39 am

      Snorts! It is so very true. It has not ‘come up’ before – I ❤ that from you. Such a wonderful sense of humor. Heck, I don't remember such a thing happening to me. Mom was so ridiculously hilarious the other night with this situation. Poor mom – all sick and medicated – and then having to deal with the 'situation'. Priceless I'm telling you – PRICELESS.
      And yes mommy is feeling so much better today. Thank goodness for that. And dad well, he still brings it up to mommy. Too funny! XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts! Too funny. No down time even for the sick here at the Hotel Thompson. We all gotta keep mom on her toes with a sense of humor. Okay I admit it – Houdini *might* have pushed a little close to the edge this night but it was hilarious for sure – rolls with laughing. XOXO – Bacon
