Hello my dear sweet friends. Another week has come and gone. Have you had a great one? The weekend is what I live for here at the Hotel Thompson. That’s when mom and dad are both home and I can get extra loving in between Mouse Girl, Hemi and Bacon. But don’t worry about me, I find me some loving for sure. Like in the afternoons when mom gets home from the worky place. Guess who gets to go to the mailbox with her to get the mail. This puppy. That’s right. Mommy takes me to the mailbox with her. There’s all kinds of weird smells out there for a pup like me. I just sniff at the wind while being carried of course. Barks – did you think I walked. No way?
Mom is also down a week on her 8 week challenge. She and dad are doing 8 weeks of eating straight – no sweets/sugar and mom has given up her soda for that time. Now that is a HUGE challenge right there in itself. She only drank soda maybe once a day sometimes two but there’s a lot of sugar in a can so it’s gone and hello water – lots of water. Tomorrow ends week 1 and only 7 weeks more to go. They will weigh in officially tomorrow. I’ll keep you posted next week about mom and how she is doing.
Mom got a picture of me and dad doing what we do best this week. As you can see, I’ve been working out too – look at those muscles – barks with puppy laughter. If you look down the hall, you will see the red of my lobster bed. I spent a while pulling it out of my bedroom and that was as far as I got. It wore me out and I had to take a power nap with daddy.
Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well. Happy weekend!

Coke (and we are not talking about Diet things here) has 44 kcal (for 100 ml) – that is as much as orange juice has. Or apple juice.

I know. Mom hasn’t had one tomorrow will be 7 days. Withdrawals can be bad but she is working through it. I can’t wait for her to weigh in tomorrow – maybe things will be all worth it then to her from the week. One step at a time is what she keeps saying. Barks! ❤ Houdini

Good luck on your mom and dad’s challenge. It’s really hard to give good things up. I would have a hard time.

Thanks my friend. There are times that I see a glint in mom’s eyes that I know she is dreaming of something good. But so far, she is holding out. ❤ Houdini

No wonder your Mom can’t have any Hostess Snowballs! If she’s off sugar, those babies are 99.9% sugar, so she will have to steer clear for a while. If you think the air smells good, you should smell the grass and the dirt. Ask your mom to let you walk to the mailbox and take a sniff or two or 5,000. It’ll take 10 times as long, but will be a hundred times more fun than being carried….
Love and licks,

Barks! Walk!? Is that why I have legs? Hahaha. I do love our trips outside. And yeah mom is missing the sugar. She’s doing good though. She will weigh in on Saturday. I hope it’s good for her. ❤️Houdini

Good for you two. It’s hard giving up the sweets but the challenge is worth it. I think I may be joining you….I seem to have been slapping on the weight recently…sweets, that’s what does it.

Oh my sweet friend. Sweets and Coke were my mom’s weakness. She gave them both up. She had a great week on the scales this morning. She has been smiling all day long. ❤ Houdini

my mom celebrated her furst die-t-success with a giant barrel of ice cream… my dad says she is a Gothamist… maybe that means she is a citizen of Batman’s town?

Snorts!! I think that is awesome. Mom thought about it. She really did. But she didn’t. This is the second week. We shall see how she does this week. Keep your paws crossed for me brother. Hopefully the wicked witch of the south won’t come out in her this week. XOXO – Bacon
