Paw Time with Houdini

Hey my friends and welcome to another week of my Paw Time with Houdini.  Things have been a little scattered around here lately.  Summer is right around the corner and with that comes heat – which the oinker hates and I can’t blame him one tiny little bit.  Also some has a birthday coming up in a couple of weeks – whistles and looks all innocent and cute.  Mom has started her DIEt thingy again and is making daddy do it with her.  This is hilarious – why do you ask?  Cause mommy whines.  I know!  I didn’t know that either.  But apparently here and this thing called chocolate have a love/hate relationship.  Mommy loves it but she hates what it does to her butt.  Barks!  Anyone else have that problem?

A while back my friends Samuel and Wallace sent all of us a care package here at the Hotel Thompson.  One of the things they sent was pupcorn.  I gotta tell you, I absolutely ❤ that stuff!  Mommy puts it in a little dish for me and her and dad will let me eat out of it after dinner.  Oh my puppy!  It’s so good!  But I eat politely.  I take one little piece from the container, eat it and then go back for more.  All during this time, my sweet daddy will hold the container for me.  Isn’t that awesome?!

And don’t worry, daddy also gives the purr things and the oinker a piece here/there as well.  And yep, they love it too.  We love eating this pupcorn when our favorite movies come on the Animal Planet.  Who wouldn’t, right?  So my friends Samuel and Wallace – thank you bunches and bunches from all of us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson  – Ya’ll rock!

And another funny thing.  I’m a Yorkshire Terrier and we can be known for being how shall I say this – more active than a runner in a marathon – barks!  I’m on the constant go-go-go, running around the Hotel Thompson, jumping off the pig like he’s my personal trampoline and chasing the purr things – or them chasing me!

Well when I land, I land HARD.  Mommy says I sleep like a rock at times.  Daddy says that when I sleep, I’m his little angel – barks!  But don’t worry – when I sleep, I’m dreaming of the things I love to do… like running some more!


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

Happy National Doughnut Day!

What a wonderful day.  Not only is it Friday but it’s also National Donut Day!  Who could ask for anything more?  It doesn’t matter what kind you like – partake in a doughnut today.  There’s many places even offering a free doughnut just for this one day – National Donut Day.  In our area, Krispy Kreme is offering a free one.  So for today, splurge and eat one to celebrate.  But the main question is – can you just eat one?

History of National Donut Day – did you know that this day was created by the Salvation Army in 1938?  It was created as a fundraiser to help the needy during the Great Depression and to honor the women who served doughnuts to military members during World War I.  About 250 Salvation Army volunteers provided assistance to America troops in France during the war.  And the kicker – Salvation Army
s’ Ensign Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance cleverly thought of frying the doughnuts in the troops’ helmets.  How creative!

Whatever flavor you decide to pick – enjoy this holiday.  I’m sure that little chompers we call Bacon will enjoy a couple.  Heck, I might even too if the Hotel Thompson throws me out a couple – hint hint.

Happy National Doughnut Day!
