Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY. This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better. Some of them, you may already know. We hope that you enjoy this series!

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? I didn’t pay much attention to them. I thought that they would pick one of the new puppies. No one else had wanted me, and I didn’t think these people would be any different. When they put me in the car, I was scared. When I threw up in their car, I thought they would take me back. Then I got to their house, and the homemade supper smelled so good, and they showed me the where I could sleep in the big bed with Mom and Dad, and I thought this was a lot better than the farm where I was born!
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? The second night I was there, I decided I really liked the big bed and this was a LOT better than the farm; I knew that I wanted to stay in this new place. A few weeks later, I finally realized that word they kept saying was my name – I was five months old and had never had a name at the farm. When I got my name, I knew I was part of the family.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? I’ve only been here nine months. Other than the car sickness that had me spewing all over the inside of the car, I’ve been pretty good. Mom said that she’d raised four kids and had seen much worse; she took it in stride. I don’t get car sick any more, and I’m still here, so I guess we’re all good.
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I’m a Daddy’s girl. I love them both, of course, but he takes me running with him sometimes. And when we go for family walks, he usually holds the leash. We both have long legs (Mom is a bit of a runt) and we belong together. I love to snuggle my Daddy the most.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? They think I’m just another pretty face, but I am crazy smart. They underestimate me, which makes it just a little easier to get into mischief!
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
Can you say buffet fun? Mom/dad went out with some friends to a local hamburger joint called Krystal’s. Look it up to see if you have one in the area. Kind of like White Castle but better… we think. A group of four went out to eat and got all of this food and four drinks for $15.00 – not bad huh? We call that cheap eats here. They have miniature square hamburgers that are awesome hot off of the grill. Their chicken wings are also awesome – they have a little heat though and will give you a kick. Have you tried any of these?
OMP (Oh my pig!) I love that face. Humans can be so silly with us, can’t they? They make all these goo goo gaa gaa sounds and twist their faces up. I think it’s only time that we turn it around and do it back to them. Fortunately, your dad had the camera on. Great face my friend. Thank you so much for sharing the fun!
Really? Are you done now laughing at me. Tell me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that harness around your neck? Who’s trained now barky thing? snorts. PLOL (Pig laughing out loud).
They say admission is the first step and I admit it. I attacked the vacuum cleaner. Well, I really don’t think it was so much of an attack as it was a jump while it wasn’t looking. Heck, it was making way too much noise. And to think mom yells at me when I bark! I was just trying to get it to be quiet. You can’t really blame me, can you? Signed Pupattack
Well, what you say is true. How can the humans get on to us and make us walk a certain line of rules and other things can’t. Just like at the Hotel Thompson. How come I can bark and squeal but daddy can sing off key loudly in the shower? I think it is all in fair play. I back you my friend. Get the petition started. I would sign it to get you out of that basket. By all means – let me sign it to get you out of the cobra basket. 🙂
Hey, what’s up my friend? Just chilling here in the sun. I think you should come down under and see me. We could have a lot of fun together. Heck, I would even let you ride in my pouch good looking. Signed Roolove
You do look awfully comfortable there my friend. So relaxed, sleepy looking from the sun actually. Although I would love to visit and ride in your ‘pouch’, I’m afraid it might be bit of a trip for me. Although, Bashful my pet rock is down under visiting. Maybe you can look him up and give him a little ride. Just be sure to please return him to his host family.
I love – just LOVE – doing this to Jed. I walk up behind him and disguise my voice saying, “Guess who?” Has anyone ever done that to you? It’s a fun little game we play. Do you know he still never guesses its me. He’s a hoot. I fool him every single time. Do it to one of your purr things and see what happens. Go ahead. Signed Fool You
Dear Fool You,
That is a cute little game my friend. I think I will tell Houdini about this and have him do it to Hemi. That should be hilarious to see how that goes down. I can almost picture in my mind. I’ll be sure to try and have the camera ready for a photo opportunity. Thanks my friend for the game.
Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends. This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better. Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.
Together we can do this!
Hey sweet friends. I am feeling so much better this week – YAY! I actually might survive this surgery. It has definitely been a most difficult 2.5 weeks from surgery. There were plenty of ups and downs, lots of pain and lots of amazing moments. I’m actually able to do more now. I still can’t bend over, raise my arms to high or lift anything – not even Houdini – but it’s getting better each and every day. I’m also staying up full days. Trust me, I took LOTS of naps during the past couple of weeks. Resting/sleeping means healing and we want that.
It definitely was a huge surgery. They were able to remove the three lumps in question (two on the left side/one on the right side). Those were sent to the lab for testing and came back no cancer – double YAY! In the big scheme of things, they removed a total of 5.5 pounds. That was 3.5 pounds from the left side (the worse side) and 2 pounds from the right. Healing is processing. The left side got a huge hit but it’s looking good. I guess you can say literally I’m a work in process.
I to say thank you to all you my friends for the letters, emails, phone calls and guidance during this time. I expected pain and recovery but it seemed like a got a big dose of it especially the first week. Your thoughts, prayers and kind words really meant a lot to us here at the Hotel Thompson. We ❤ you!
I did some updates on my surgery blog if you would like to read about them – here.
❤ small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤
Shakes head side to side. Welcome to living here at the Hotel Thompson my friends. This is what daddy woke up to this morning in the bathroom. And trust me, he fell for it. I’ve never heard a man scream so loud before. Don Juan is in deep trouble when dad gets a hold of him!
