International “No Diet” Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

May 6th is International No Diet Day – yes this is a day that I think me and the pig can definitely enjoy!  This day encourages everyone to appreciate the bodies they have and that we all come in different shapes and sizes.  There is no ‘right’ shape or size to be happy.  If you are watching what you eat, take today as a holiday and excuse for being a no diet day.  Enjoy my friends!

Did you know that International No Diet Day was created by Mary Evans Young in 1992?  She was the director of “Diet Breakers”.  She personally experienced anorexia and worked to help people appreciate themselves for what they are and to appreciate the body they have.

Paw Time with Houdini


 

Greetings my dear friends in blogville.  This has been a week!  Mom has been running around trying to get her ‘lists’ taken care of.  Does your humans do this?  They keep adding to their lists and trying to scratch things off.  Daddy says as long as mom has the list and doesn’t give him a ‘honey do list” he is good – barks with puppy laughter.  Daddy is such a silly man for sure.

 One of the things on mom’s list was a trip to our local pet store Petsmart.  And guess what – I betcha can’t guess?  I got to go!  Can you say FIELD TRIP?  What a blast!  I love that place.  There are so many toys and so much food and so many people that want to say hey to me.  I just ❤ it!

While we were there, dad found me this cool toy – it’s a tuff piggy.  I love it – especially since it’s wearing wings.  It reminds me of my pig bro Bacon who thinks he can fly too.  But supposedly this new toy is suppose to be tuff and doggy indestructible.  Barks!  We shall see about that my friends.

  And of course while we were shopping, we had to check out the clothes.  Some people think it’s weird but I really, REALLY like wearing my clothes.  When mom changes me – I gotta have her help because my arms are too short to do it myself – I beg for my new shirt.  In fact, I feel naked without my clothes.  It’s just something I’ve gotten used to and I love it.  And yep, I have a baby dresser full of my clothes 🙂  Lucky me huh?

So there we were looking at clothes and mom starts laughing all to herself.  Me and dad were like what’s up?  So she read this shirt to us and said it had to travel home with us.  Can you read it?  “I don’t need your attitude, I have one of my own.”  For some reason, mom/dad said that shirt was perfect for me.  I don’t get it – barks with puppy laughter.  I don’t have an ‘attitude’.  Not at all.  I just want everything and everything my way 🙂

When we got home, mom/dad put away all of their things and were talking in the kitchen.  Finally mom was like, “Where’s Hoo-Hoo?”  That’s when they looked into the living room and saw me.  Mom just *had* to take a picture and was laughing while she did it.  They find me so humorous – I don’t get that either.  But as long as mom laughs and smiles, I guess I’m good with that.

Do you see the irony in this picture?  Mom was telling daddy that there was irony in it but I don’t understand what that means.  What is irony?  Mom mentioned something about seeing my ‘bed’ in the back ground of the picture in front of the fireplace and why wasn’t I in that bed.  But mom, why would I be in that bed when I can stretch out fully on the chaise?  The chaise is so comfy and I’m stretched out fully – barks with puppy laughter.

And now friends, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – enjoy!
