Paw Time with Houdini

12 Jun

Barks my friends!  I do hope your week is going well.  Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite toys.  No, I couldn’t just pick 1 as my favorite so I’m giving you the top 4.  Thankfully mom took all of these pictures at the store when she bought them for me at different times.

First up is tuggin’ tail pig.  Isn’t he awesome? ❤  He reminds me of Bacon somewhat… okay maybe not at all except that he’s a pig – barks!  This one was a neat toy.  You see mom/dad would hold the tail and I would attack the ball in the mouth of the pig… which seems kind of weird because all I could think of was it should have been an apple – ha!

This tuggin’ tail pig was awesome – did you pick that up above?  I played with him and played with him and played with him.  Then one day, the ball broke and the piggy lost his head.  I’m not sure what happened.  I think he spontaneously blew up.  There was white stuff everywhere on the floors of the Hotel Thompson.  But tuggin’ tail pig was a good pig.  I think I had him for about a month – which was good all considering.

Then there was skunk road kill.   He is cool.  He even has tread marks across his belly showing where he has been run over by some vehicle.  He is way cool and guess what – I still have him to toss around my kingdom here.  Can you imagine the creator of this awesome toy?  Riding down the street one day perhaps to work and sees road kill on the side of the road and says to himself, “WOW – that would make a great toy.”  Barks!  I think that would be hilarious.

Have you ever seen such a fantastic skunk?  Of course, he reminds me of Peppy Le Pew but way better now – barks!


 What do you think?  Do you see the resemblance?  Sure you do… look for the swooshy tail and white stripes – of course mine has tread marks on it – ha!



Then there is poochy.  He is also awesome – notice his rope legs that attach to his body and have paws at the end.  Mom/dad can hold a leg and I can grab the other legs for a festive tug of war challenge.  He was almost my favorite… notice I said almost.

Poochy is now called Waddles… why?  Because he has no legs.  They were pulled off by another dog… looks innocent.  What?  Isn’t that what he was for?  He still is a good dog.  I play with his body… of course minus the legs now.  I don’t have to worry about him running away from me – barks!  I couldn’t pass that one up my friends.

And he knows his commands like sit and stay.  Double barks.

But this leads us to my all time favorite toy.


Pirate Chicken.  Oh my dogs!  He is so very cool.  You see I had a pirate chicken before.  I loved him.  He squeaks differently and there is just something about that peg leg that drives me crazy.  He got destroyed right before we had the house renovation.

So mom/dad were shopping at the grocery store and finally found me a replacement.  Barks and does happy dance!!  I couldn’t believe that my favorite toy in the entire world was replaced.  I run around the Hotel Thompson with it in my mouth, throwing it up in the air, attacking it and shaking it all around.  It is totally awesome!

I feel like my entire life is complete now with the second coming of pirate chicken.  Do you have any favorite toys that you can’t live without?  Do share my friends.

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

    wow a toy what was there for a whole month? that’s pawsome! I have a roadkill-rat named Rizzo, but your skunk looks much better… and hey it hasn’t the smell of Pepe Le Pew, so you haven’t to take a bath :o)

      Exactly. I bow at your paws my friend. You are awesome. No wonder Bacon calls you brother. I’ve been secretly taking lessons from you on toy reconstruction. I’m still learning but you are the BEST. ❤ Houdini

        Barks! I think they are. I heard daddy telling mommy the other night that he bet Pirate Chicken wouldn’t make it past a month. You know I have a lot to work up to friend because you have set limits that I can only dream about! ❤ Houdini

    Pirate chicken is nice, but the roadkill skunk is killing me! Only your parents would manage to find that one!

    Love and licks,

    we agree with the others – the skunk road kill is so funny – we have never seen one of those before but we are so happy you got another pirate chicken.

      Barks! Skunk Road Kill is absolutely amazing and so far has withstood the chew factor. Give me time with him though. And Pirate Chicken is AMAZING! I love him. He has a different squeak than my other toys. He’s awesome. ❤ Houdini

      YES! Bacon says he is glad they still have it and hopes they think of him when they play with him. ❤ Houdini
