Paw Time with Houdini

  Barks!  Hello my friends to another great week of Paw Time with Houdini.  Summer is slowly sneaking in on us here at the Hotel Thompson.  I’m kind of looking forward to Summer.  I know Bacon is not because of the heat.  But I have reasons for Summer.  This Summer means I become a big boy.  That’s right.  You heard it right.  I become a big boy of ONE.  Nice huh?  I will no longer be a mere puppy.  I will be a grown up doggy.

This week I also got to do something that I absolutely LOVE.  I went to the worky place with mommy – told you fun times.  You see, I wasn’t feeling too well one morning.  Mommy thought it would be best if I went with her so she could watch me.

I gotta tell you.  That’s a fun place to go to hang out for the day.  You can see in this picture that I was trying to do some yoga to get the icky germs out of me.  This is my upward pooch pose.  I was having so much fun with it.  For some reason every time I did it, mom got all aaww and gave me kisses.

Later after I got tired, I crawled up on mom’s desk and went to sleep.  Don’t worry.  I didn’t keep her from working.  I tried to help her.  I got to stay here for the longest time.  I just slept and watched mommy work.  There’s lots of neat flashy things that go across her computer screen.  And don’t forget the sounds – they are awesome.

But do you know what was the best?  All of mom’s co-workers stopped by the office to chat with me.  Some of them even played with me.  Heck by the time I got home, I was kind more tired than usual.  It’s hard looking this cute and playing so hard.

It was really cool to spend time with mommy this date.  I look forward to it again. Maybe next time I won’t feel so under the weather

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

Bacon’s Show and Tell

This month we are discussing that one item that you received as a gift that you absolutely HATED.  I mean despised. I mean you wanted to toss your cookies because it was that awful.  Oh my friends – this is going to be a great one that I’m going to let my mom do.  Yes, it’s that good.  Are you ready?  Here we go – tighten your seat belt it’s going to be a bumpy ride – snorts

This happened a long time ago… really long time ago.  Mom and dad were still dating at the time.  Dad thought he would do something very sweet for mom and wanted to buy her a leather jacket.  Awesome huh?  So dad went out and bought mom a leather jacket.  He brought it to her and he was so excited about it. He was so proud of what he had done.  Something so touching – who wouldn’t want a leather jacket.

Mom opened the box and peaked into the box.  That’s when things changed. Mom was excited about getting a leather jacket out of the blue.  She was not so excited about the color.  Daddy had gotten mom a PURPLE leather jacket.  Purple.  There’s nothing wrong with the color purple.  Mom loves that color.  But when she put on the purple leather jacket and looked into the mirror – oh my piggy heavens.  She looked like BARNEY!  Do you remember Barney?  I love you – You love me Barney.  Shakes piggy head.

You can imagine that conversation between mom and dad right there over the purple leather jacket.  Oh, and mom politely declined its acceptance and explained to daddy why.  Of course he understood there and didn’t think about Barney.  He said mom was beautiful in it – no one would ever mistake her for a singing dinosaur.  But, just in case you know mommy still said no.
