Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –
Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –
April 14th. is Look Up at the Sky Day. Bet you didn’t know this was a holiday did you? Today, take a few minutes to go outside and check it out. Sit on the ground, lay on the ground – have a picnic, or sit at a table. While you’re there, check out the sky. Just look up and see what you can find. Are there clouds? If so, what shapes can you make out of them? Are there planes or birds? And don’t just keep this activity to day time hours, check the sky out at night. Do you see the moon? Is it full or covered? Do you see the stars?
Have a fun time at it and why not invite your humans to do the same. Take a little time to sit, breathe and look at the wonder of the world.
Oh my friends. You *have* to check this out. Our new friend Thomas from One Drawing Daily did a drawing of the little guy here Houdini, Thomas’ 444th drawing to be exact. It’s amazing! He captured Hoo-Hoo’s personality and spunkiness in his drawing. You have to check out Thomas’ web page here. He has done some wonderful drawings of our fellow friends and we wanted him to do one of ours too.
This picture of Houdini on the right is from when mommy took him to the worky place with her one day. He sat on her desk like that while she pounded away at her keyboard. It was too cute. If you notice in Thomas’ drawing, he even picked up his ear position which is dominant in Houdini. Houdini always has his ears perked in this position with his head slightly moved as to say, “What’s up my friend?”
Thank you again Thomas for doing such an extraordinary job drawing our little guy here at the Hotel Thompson. Houdini brings us a lot of fun and spunk!
Dear Bacon, Just sitting here minding my own business enjoying a cool one after a long day of chasing the mailman and purr things from my kingdom of a yard. Then the human comes home and has to snap this picture. What? Haven’t you ever seen a pooch relax before? Signed Coors Doggy
Dear Coors Doggy, I don’t get it either my friend. Just a pooch, dressed up drinking a beer. What could your human be thinking with taking a picture? Doesn’t he do the same thing? In fact when he does, why don’t you take *his* picture and let him see what it feels like to be disturbed from your happy place..
Dear Bacon, The humans don’t believe me Bacon. There I was in the kitchen with this rotisserie chicken in the package. Dog’s honor, the chicken exploded out of the package. Yeah, that’s it. It exploded out of the package and ran away. Why do the humans think we did this? Signed Two Innocents Until Proven Guilty
Dear Two Innocents Until Proven Guilty, WOW! I think you need to call your local police department on this one…. maybe Ripley’s Believe it or Not. I can see the headlines now – “Rotisserie Chicken Jumps out of Packaging and Flees”. Uh-oh. Wait a minute. You better rethink that. What if that gets out that you two strong, husky protect dogs let an innocent little chicken flee from the safety confines of your home. This won’t end well. Perhaps you better come up with a better story. How good was that chicken?
Dear Bacon, Ssshhsss – I’m trying to blendsss in here in the hood. I don’t thinksss anyone seessss me yet. I just hope the neighborsss don’t try to hand up any signsss here. I could be busted if they do. Signed Hide and Seeksss Champ
Dear Hide and Seeksss Champ, Gulps. I may never look at a phone poll the same way ever again my friend. You blend so well. Your colors – wow! I’m amazed at your climbing skills of going up and not falling off.
Dear Bacon, One word buddy – OUCH! Snoopy made this look so easy. Trust me my friend. It is not. I may never be able to bark like a big dog ever again. Do not try this at home. Signed Help Me
Dear Help Me, WOW! Watch out Steven Seagal and Jean Claude Van Damme. I think you have some skills there my friend. Probably more now that you’ll never be able to reproduce again – snorts.
Dear Bacon, First we put flour on the board and then crack some eggs. What? You don’t do the cooking at the Hotel Thompson? Oh buddy – you so have to learn in case the humans go on vacation again. These days, I take care of myself. When the humans leave, I hit the fridge and freezer for some culinary delights. If you want to learn to cook, I’m your dog! Signed Chef Poo Chie Lagasse
Dear Chef Poo Chie Lagasse, Sign me up for some lessons my friend. I think all anipals should learn how to cook. I’m good… as long as there is no pork on the menu 🙂
REMEMBER friends Dear Bacon can’t happen without your letters and pictures. Please continue to send them to me for our Dear Bacon issues. Snorts and thanks!
