Paw Time with Houdini

08 May

Hello my sweet friends.  It’s been a couple of weeks since my last check in here from the Hotel Thompson.  We are ALL so glad the renovation is over here.  It was amazing and I hope you enjoyed seeing all of the before and after pictures as well as mom’s breakdown of the different phases.  I tell you that mother of mine is a scheduler… and a juggler.  She kept us all on a strict schedule.  Have you see the television shows where they don’t show the home owner the after until it’s finished?  That’s what mom/dad did to us anipals here.  We all got shipped up the street to Nana’s to spend the night the day of the floor installation.  The last thing we remember is the carpet and linoleum.  So that Friday after the furniture was delivered, mom came and got us from Nana’s.  OMD!  Once we got inside of the Hotel Thompson, us anipals couldn’t believe it!  It was so new and different.  We all thought we were at the wrong house for a bit.  So many different changes.  We anipals went around and of course had to check things out and mark our territories.  So many new things to try out!

Then it happened.  Mom told us that we had to be careful of the new flooring and furniture.  And of course, daddy put the baby gate back up blocking us from the kitchen.  That baby gate is because of Bacon – don’t tell him I told you that.  That pig – rolls doggy eyes – he knows how to open the freezer so he can’t go in there anymore.  Since he can’t go in there, we can’t go in there.  Of course, the cats jump the fence but I’m too little.  But when I did get to go in the kitchen to check things out – WOW!  I ran and ran and ran around that kitchen island so many times that I got dizzy.  It’s so neat!

And of course my favorite piece of furniture is the couch.  All of those big puffy pillows – I was in pooch heaven.  My personal challenge is to see how many I can knock on the floor before mom/dad realize what I’m doing – barks!  And mom’s chaise – WOW!  That thing is like a bed for a queen – which my mommy is – šŸ™‚  She keeps this comfy Chinese blankie on it that she wraps up in when she is on it.  The other day, I jumped up with her.  Yep – see the picture.  It was so comfy!  And are you wondering what my shirt says?  It’s one of my favorites – of course my brother Bacon doesn’t like it but I think that’s what makes it even funnier.  The shirt says, “I like bacon on my bacon”.  Funny huh?

Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

    Guess what? To see your hotel thompson before&after was much better than any show… it was real life and that’s always the best…. and nothing screams IKEA (aarrrrgh!) and nothing is mis-decorated just for the show. It’s a 5 star hotel thompson now and I will add 5 stars for working with your own paws :o) I can open a fridge too, butt it’s not worth the effort to open the fridge of vegetarians hahahaha :o)

      Snorts brother. Thank you so very much. We are digging the new Hotel Thompson for sure. And the freezer has nothing in it for me – well there was that one time I got the ice cubes in the tray – and then there was another time that I got the ice cream cones – now they were delicious – snorts. But other than that, all of the good stuff is in the fridge above and I can’t reach that… yet. XOXO – Bacon

    I bet you are glad it’s all done. Now you can enjoy it with your mom. That is too funny Bacon goes in the freezer. Don’t let my kitties know he knows how to do this. They might ask for suggestions. LOL. Have a great weekend.

      Snorts – and he might just tell. That pig has powers beyond his snout. I’m in awe watching him when he goes exploring and gets into things he shouldn’t. He really wants to get into the fridge but it is above the freezer. Mom says he can climb chairs. I may have to push a chair over for him… what? Would I do that? Looks innocent. XOXO – Bacon

      Yes it is. We anipals didn’t think the humans were going to make it but they did. And I’m so glad. One thing mom didn’t think about though was that I am small. Therefore, I can get under that lovely chaise and couch of hers – Barks! ā¤ Houdini

    You can relax and be yourself, although not the messy part of you…you know, the fun part. This neatness phase of your mom and dad will wear off but for now be tidy little one.

      Barks! Most definitely. I’m keeping the messy part of myself in my bedroom…for now. ā¤ļø Houdini

      Thanks pal! It is so much fun now at the Hotel Thompson. So many new things to explore and so many new places to hide. We are definitely loving it! And you know I had to buy this shirt to pick on my bro Bacon. He hates it. Barks! ā¤ļø Houdini
