Hey friends – I’m stepping in for big brother Bacon this week since he is away at Summer Camp. I hope I brought him so justice – enjoy! ❤ Houdini
Dear Houdini – This is not funny. Really it’s not. My human is crazy. Can you save me please? Signed Potato in Waiting
Dear Potato in Waiting – BARKS! I gotta admit that it’s a little funny. Really think about it. How many anipals can say they look like a hot potato and you are hot. I say save the look for Halloween and go for it. You will win so many contests for originality and beauty.
Dear Houdini – I heard about your accident the other day with a pillow that exploded at the Hotel Thompson. I *know* you can relate. You *have* to relate. I was sitting on the front porch minding my own business when this cushion suddenly blew up for no apparent reason. I was just as shocked as everyone else. Signed Mystified
Dear Mystified – I know! It’s unbelievable how those things happen out of the blue – spontaneous combustion does happen. It is highly documented. I think pillows only do this when dogs are around so that we can personally take the blame. Yeah – that has to be it. Surely it’s not because of something us sweet devout pooches did. No way! I say cover yourself my friend. No camera documentation means you didn’t do it. I’m sticking to that story and you should too!
Dear Houdini – I know you are just a mere dog but let me tell you something, I’ve earned my stripes. I’m fierce. I’m strong. I’m a rocking cat that can shake your world if you don’t obey me. You just remember that about us cats okay. Cats rule and dogs drool! Signed Stripes
Dear Stripes – Barks and laughter! Wait a minute while I pick myself up from laughing and rolling around here on the floor. Cats rule and dogs drool – too funny. Okay maybe we dogs do drool when we are excited but there is no way that cats rule – sorry Hemi and Mouse Girl here. Us doggies are higher on the who is in charge chain. And your stripes – oh my dog! Really? Walk away from the sun my friend and tell me about those stripes then – Barks!
Dear Houdini – There I was sitting on the sofa from another long day of working on the farm. I was so exhausted. I had the television on for sound and that’s when I saw it. A commercial for a dating service for Farmers Only. WOW! I never knew it existed. Do you think I have a chance with a lady? Signed Stetson
Dear Stetson – YES you do. We all have chances. And how could anyone say no to a cowboy hat? Mommy says those are hot!
Dear Houdini – There is a problem with this slide. Really there is. I slide down it all of the time. But this date, I did’t slide. What the hamster world happened? Signed Stuck
Dear Stuck – Perhaps it was too dry to slide down. Perhaps you have more fluff than usual and it was a little tight? It could happen. I know sometimes my t-shirts get a little snug like that and I have to cut back a bit. And then perhaps you just need a gentle push? Call me if you need some assistance. I’ll get the jaws of life out to get you out of a tight spot. In the meantime, take it easy okay.
Remember Dear Bacon can’t happen without you my friends. Keep your letters and pictures coming to my email.

Well done Houdini! You did Bacon proud with your wise and witty replies. Have you heard from him? Is he settling in ok? Is he warm enough?

Thanks my friends! I think Bacon is settling in. He’s had a couple of stumbles with being called a H.O.G. How dare that twerk huh? We are waiting for his letter today. ❤ Houdini

BRAVO Mystified, good job! I cross my paws for Stetson, it’s not easy to find a lady, if you are a farmer or a tunnel-worker… ladies are rare… sigh…
btw: a friend of my mom had the same accident as Stuck once, they had to call the Federal Agency for Technical Relief… that was embarrassing… and that friend broke up with my mom, because she laughed like crazy… but hey, who wouldn’t laugh at a human, jammed in a waterslide of a public pool?
07/28/2015 at 10:05 am
Oh barking like crazy here my friend. That is hilarious. Someone got stuck on a water slide at a public pool. How embarrassing and funny at the same time. Bless their little sweet heart. ❤ Houdini

it was the event of the year…honestly… it was that moment you weren’t able to laugh, you only could howl like a coyote with laughter…as they waited for the rescue-crew the pool-guy offered Monique who stuck in the tube-slide a bottle with water. She totally freaked out, because she nearly got drowned from the water of the irrigation system of that slide… that was the moment my momma rolled around with laughter…
07/29/2015 at 10:07 am
OMD! I can so imagine and close my eyes to see that taking place. My mom would have surely wet her pants from laughing so hard! Hilarious my friend – totally hilarious. ❤ Houdini

Oh dear, we had a pillow explosion here at “Fuschia Cottage” aided and abetted by a small team of canines! Good job Houdini! 😀
07/28/2015 at 10:06 am
Thanks Auntie Sharon. See those pillows are proof that spontaneous combustion is alive and well all over the world. It does happen! No way us sweet little pooches would have anything to do with that. Shakes head and looks innocent – no way. ❤ Houdini

Good work, H. Bacon would be proud. As for Stuck, he needs to cut back some also…
Love and licks,
07/28/2015 at 10:07 am
Thanks my friend. I really tried. I had some huge hooves to step into. Bacon is so good at these letters. ❤ Houdini

Stripes had it right Cats Rule…dogs need not drool but they usually do…I choose the dry alternative….CATS.
07/28/2015 at 10:07 am
Barks! I have to admit my friend that I only drool when I’m excited… or hungry… or playing. Okay, I admit it. I drool. ❤ Houdini
07/28/2015 at 7:23 am
Omg … This is soooo cute and funny! I can’t wait to read your next installment of “Dear Houdini”!
07/28/2015 at 10:09 am
aaww barks and blushes. Thanks my friend. I tried stepping in for my brother Bacon this week since he is at Summer Camp. Dear Bacon issues go out every Tuesday here. ❤ Houdini

well done – maybe bacon should go away more often 🙂
07/29/2015 at 10:12 am
Barks and jumps up and down for joy. You really liked my answers – you really did? Thank you my sweet dear friend. ❤ Houdini
07/29/2015 at 12:07 pm
Stetson should have no problem finding a lady – unless the ladies in his neck of the woods are blind! Great hat and boots…who can resist those?
07/29/2015 at 1:15 pm
That’s exactly what my mom said. Maybe I need to get me a stetson. ❤ Houdini
07/29/2015 at 7:56 pm
