Paw Time with Houdini

Lowers my head in shame.  Mom told me… are you ready for this… that I look like a hot mess.  I don’t get it.  I had to lay down to digest and think about what she said.  What does a hot mess exactly mean?  Then I heard her on the phone with my spa lady Kim.  That made me happy.  I ❤ going to the spa.  There’s something so relaxing about having an oatmeal bath.  That’s the life.  I guess if a hot mess leads to this, I’m good with it.  What do you think?  So tomorrow I’ll be thinking about you while I’m taking my bath, getting my puppy massage and a full cut.  I think I need a cut.  My hair is so long it’s in my eyes.  Now that I think of it… mom’s hair is in her eyes too.  Maybe she is a hot mess?  Barks and rolls with puppy laughter.

Now my friends I leave you in good paws with Jokes from Daddy.  Enjoy!

Shopping Around the World

This month for Shopping Around the World, we are going to focus on go to desserts/treats.

You know for those days when you need a pick me up or you are feeling down, what is the one thing you go to for comfort?

I know we shouldn’t but we do.  We can all admit that from time to time, right?

Well this month is an easy one for mom.  Wait until you see!  Take it away mom –


When I think of go to comfort food as in dessert, I think of one thing.  Pepperidge Farm cakes.  I was introduced to Pepperidge Farm cakes when I was a young child.  It was something that we always kept in the freezer.  You know back in the day when you wanted people to drop in for visits  and they did unexpectedly – LOL.  These days, we don’t want anyone coming by unless you call weeks in advance and make an appointment.  Times have changed, right?  Well in the day, when unexpected friends dropped by my mom would get out the Pepperidge Farm cake, make a pot of coffee and visit.

These days, I still try to keep these in the freezer if not for just the memories they once brought to me.  Anytime you need some sugar comfort, cut you a slice off of the cake and enjoy a little time just being.  These Pepperidge Farm cakes come in a different variety – vanilla layer cake, red velvet cake, lemon layer cake, key lime cake, coconut layer cake, chocolate fudge layer cake and this one – rich golden layer cake.  And personally, the golden layer and key lime cakes are my all time favorites – LOL.

And the best thing about these cakes – they are cheap.  Really on average they are about $4.00 a cake.  BUT you can find them on sale two for $5.00!  Now can you make two cakes that cheap?  So pardon me my friends, this cake in the picture was opened last weekend.  It’s calling my name to be finished.  The next time you are in your local market, see if you can find one of these and try them.  You won’t regret it.
