Paw Time with Houdini

23 Jan

 Hello my new friends for another update with Paw Time with Houdini.  Life is continuing to be so much fun here at the Hotel Thompson.  I turned 7 months old this week.  Can you believe that?  Time is going by so fast and I’m having so much fun!

The other anipals here – Bacon, Hemi and Mouse Girl – have all been so helpful.  I’ve learned a lot from them.  Even daddy says that I’m growing up and out of the puppy stage.  You’re probably wondering what have I learned right?  Well, for one thing how to jump.  You see there is this dreaded gate that separates me and Bacon from the kitchen area.  Well we all know that is where the good stuff is because if not it wouldn’t be off limits, right?  I’ve been watching Hemi and Mouse Girl and how they jump over said gate into the land of plenty called the kitchen.  Yesterday, I jumped on the sofa near the gate.  I crawled to the edge and looked over and guess what.  It’s not that big of jump so I jumped.  I was in the kitchen of plenty before anyone knew it.  In fact, I was in there a LONG time before daddy knew I was missing – BARKS!  The only reason he knew I was missing was because I sat in the kitchen barking like mad for him to let me back in so I could go to my room to potty.  So you see, the purr things have taught me the freedom trail to the kitchen – thanks ya’ll.

And Bacon has taught me the way to the humans hearts.  When it’s bedtime and I don’t want to go yet, just look cute and loving.  Licking and giving kisses also helps the situation.  If I do this 9 times out of 10, mom will take me to the big bed with them for a bit for some extra loving.  Thanks Bacon for the advice.


And fetch.  I ❤ me some fetch.  Oh my doggy wonder – fetch is the bestest game ever invented.  This ball I have in my mouth here in this picture is my favorite ball in the entire world. It was a gift from my friend Easy.  The little holes in the ball make it easy for me to sink my teeth into it and I don’t give it up easily.

In fact, daddy says I need more training in fetch.  You see, I get the ball gets thrown.  I get the fact that I ‘fetch’ the ball and bring it back.  I don’t know the concept of letting the ball go to be thrown again.  Heck no – this is my ball and my game.  I am so strong willed in keeping my ball that you can pick the ball up and I will hang from it growling.  My ball.  Barks!  See the humans don’t understand the fact that I’m not playing fetch.  Nope.  I’m playing tug-a-war.  BARKS and rolls with laughter.  Who needs training now?

    You seem like an intelligent little guy. Do you know why the dog I nanny refuses to fetch balls? He cheses balls and will play fetch with his other toys while some of him he has his 3 favoirte toys he doesn’t care about other toys.

    It sounds to me like YOU are training the HUMANS instead of the other way around! I used to play fetch when I was a kitten……now I’m old I still like Mom to throw something for me to fetch but I let HER fetch and I watch……HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Hugs, Sammy

    I understand… Terriers never fetch things, they act like Captain Jack Sparrow: take what you can and give nothing back … very wise… you could be a Weim-Terrier too :o)

      HA! I’m taking lessons from you Uncle Easy. I’m working on toy destruction. Did Bacon tell you about my first ball? It was fun! AND, I’m good at stealing dad’s socks when he’s not looking. Just call me the sock bandit! ❤ Houdini

    Now it’s time for you to teach Bacon how to clear that gate so he can enter the land of plenty. Imagine how much fun that would be!

    You got the ball, if he wants it back he should have fetched it.

    • PigLove

      01/23/2015 at 1:06 pm

      I agree 100% my friends. I don’t see that ball in his mouth… although that would be fun to watch – barks! ❤ Houdini

      No je is just nutty dog he recuses to pick up the ball he may sometimes chase it but never picks up any ball and you don’t knowh ow many diffrent balls we tried. However he brings his white bead or brown bear or his dog also brown all stuffed toys(yes tried plush balls) he will go fetch it and nring it back for you to throw over and over. The dog I nanny makes zero sence.

    the drop part is easy – just have a little treat hidden in the hand and when he bring it back open the hand so he can get the treat – of coarse he has to drop the ball to get it 🙂

    Houdini…you got it made…what wuth learning how to get into the kitchen and having your own ball. I think the giving the ball to the others to throw for you comes as you get older.
