Snorts – you see this is a funny story. There comes a time in a little doggie’s life that he needs a bath. Some things are instilled in a pet’s mind that he knows what is coming. This is one of those times. I got to watch from the sidelines and took some pictures… and of course snorted a couple of times here and there. You know because of the little guys antics. He can really be funny when he wants to be.
See first there was the, “Houdini come here it’s bath time.” As soon as I heard those words, I knew it was on for some fun times. See, I don’t run from bath time. I enjoy bath time. I think it’s fun to stomp my feet and blow bubbles in the water. Houdini on the other hand, he likes to be a clown.
He ran around the front room hiding. In fact, you can see him in this picture. He thinks since you can’t see his face, you can’t see him… regardless of the point that his wahoo is in the air – snorts with piggy laughter. What a clown huh?
But it gets better. I ran into the bathroom where mommy was headed once Houdini was caught. Once caught, he was fine. He cuddled and played and licked mommy. That’s when I noticed it in the bathroom. You are asking what pig – what did you notice?
Look at this bottle and what is marked – here you go:
“Remember to eliminate all escape routes and in advance (a tip: once your pet is slippery wet he or she is suddenly smarter and faster than you are.)”
Oh my goodness – who writes these instructions? I want to high hoof them – it’s great! It’s fantastic. It made me oink! It made mom oink…. okay maybe laugh or chuckle or maybe snort.
But all is good afterwards. Look at the cute little poochie now. All squeaky clean. Sparkly if you will.
And if you look a long time at the picture, it starts to look like Houdini is smiling. So maybe… just maybe… I’m not the only one who enjoys a nice bath.
What do you think? You think he enjoyed the bath?
Oh and I have to give it to the little guy – excellent choice in hide and go seek. Butts up anyone? Snorts with piggy laughter.
I’ve got a lot on my piggy mind lately. Nothing particular just aimless ramblings from my point of view. I do a lot of listening around the Hotel Thompson. Sometimes it’s better to listen than oink. So today I’m going to share some of those things that I’ve heard.
Mom has an ear ache. She told daddy she could hear it slushing. I’m not sure what that means but it doesn’t sound good.
Houdini got groomed this week. Now he’s walking around like he owns the place. Go figure huh?
Coming up this week is a long weekend. I’m glad. I need some extra snuggles from mom. I think she could use it too.
I’ve gotten more used to the feel of grass on my hooves. I still don’t like it but I don’t hide from it anymore. I still think of myself as more of an air conditioned piggy than a hot piggy.
There’s something big that has happened in my life. I’m hoping to share more about it next month. It’s huge. It’s been a little over a month and I’ve been adjusting to it. It’s big. Heck, we’ve all been adjusting to it here at the Hotel Thompson. Just wait until you find out about it. You’ll be thrilled too.
Mom has started that DIEt thing again. Lord help us all. She says that she needs to do it so dad can get aboard the DIEt thing. Shakes piggy head. Help me. I’m saying that now because I can tell it’s going to be rough the next couple of months.
Hemi should join that show called Fear Factor. Mom says so because he has no fear. He has been jumping around the house from shelves to couch to mom’s chaise. Of course mom gets on to him but he still does it. I heard mom tell dad that Hemi was pushing her over the edge and it was a short trip. I don’t get that because I haven’t seen any edges like that in the house.
Mouse Girl has gained weight. Maybe she needs to be put on the DIEt thing. I’m not sure. She is what did dad say, butt heavy. And of course, Houdini has the biggest crush on her. I mean huge. Houdini keeps chasing after her and you want to hear something funny. Of course, I don’t get it but mom and dad laugh hysterically when daddy says it. Every time Houdini chases Mouse Girl, dad tells Houdini, “Leave her alone Houdini. She’s too much pussy for you.” What? I don’t get it.
