Did you celebrate the 4th of July this week? This week has been one continual pawty here at the Hotel Thompson. Every year during the 4th of July, it’s *always* a pawty. Not just for the 4th but there’s also another important howliday in there. On the 3rd, it was mom’s barkday. We had a blast! There was cake, ice cream, presents, dinners and bunches of shopping and fun. Mom/dad and Nana even went and saw the new Jurassic World movie. They had such a great time playing together. And they didn’t forget us anipals either. We had doggy ice cream to celebrate the week.
Did ya’ll have a great time this week too?
Yawns! I just gotta ask something my friends. My dad says I’m spoiled and that most pooches don’t wake up like this in the morning. You know with their head on a pillow and feet under a blanket. I think he’s wrong. I think a lot of us wake up like this, right? I mean why would he care. I’m not on his pillow. I’m beside mommy and she shares everything with me. And I like to sleep like this with my feet up in the air. That way mom can spoon me and rub my belly. Heck, I’m not spoiled. Not at all!
Sometimes one just needs to steal a jacket and get comfy for a nap. Mom was working. I wanted to play but I was sleepy. So I stole her jacket and settled down for some shut eye. Hey, a dog has to do what a dog has to do in these times, right? And can you tell I need a trim as mom calls it? Sure mom – go ahead and call my groomer. I *need* a day at the spa. It’s hard being a dog sometimes…barks with puppy laughter. Bring on some TLC, massages and smelly oatmeal bath. Calgon take me away!
Today is Houdini’s BIRTHDAY!
Houdini turns a big whopping four today. Where has the time gone? It feels just like yesterday that Houdini was adopted and came to live at the Hotel Thompson.
We are keeping it pretty quiet today but later this evening, there will be a small party with Frosty Paws ice cream with a few anipal friends.
We just had to share this from Houdini’s first birthday – here he is blowing out his candle. Can you say aaww.
Happy Birthday pal!
Look at me – I’m a trained seal – barks with puppy laughter. No really. Mom just had the camera at just the right time and took the perfect picture of me balancing my ball on my nose. It made her laugh. And anything that makes mom laugh… or snort.. makes me happy. What about you?
Hello peeps. This is me everyday when mom leaves the Hotel Thompson. I crawl on the back of mom’s chaise and hang out waiting for her return. Of course, I get down to refuel with a bite to eat or drink of water… or go potty. But then it’s back up on the chaise for mommy patrol. This is the *best* spot to wait for her. I can look out the window and look for her car to pull up. And then when she walks through the door, she knows better to be holding anything because I’m going to jump right into her arms. Nah, don’t worry. She will always catch me. Right?
Hope you have a blast of a weekend. I leave you now with Jokes with Daddy.
So since mom/dad
deserted went to Chicago, Illinois last week, us anipals got to go to Nana’s for a somewhat vacation of our own. This is me telling Nana’s dog Dingo all about the treatment we got. Dingo completely understood. But I’m a creative genius cause you know I made the best out of the situation. I would like to tell you how but sometimes thinks that happen at Nana’s must be kept at Nana’s. It’s the Nana Code. You can spill how much more spoiled Nana makes you. Seriously. I’m sure you understand. But mom/dad have come home now – thank goodness. And it looks like mom/dad had a great time. So for now, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy. Enjoy my friends!
BARKS! It’s not fair. It really isn’t. Why? Well one of my toys decided to blow up right out of the blue. I had absolutely nothing to do with it. It started on the couch, went to the floor and ended up under the sofa. I had nothing to do with it not whatsoever. Dogs honor. Have you ever had a toy do this?
Of course, mom was too happy to be taking shots at my rump. Like really mom. That was a private moment. What if I took a picture of your butt up in the air. Just sayin’. Barks with puppy laughter.
Now my friends, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy. I hope you enjoy this one – Barks!
Hello friends of the Hotel Thompson. This is Sherlock Bones reporting in from Chicago, Illinois. Do you remember who I am? I am Bacon, Houdini’s and Hemi’s cousin (my mom is Bacon’s mom’s sister). WOW – that’s a lot to follow isn’t it? Well guess what? The gang’s mom/dad are not at the Hotel Thompson. The gang of anipals are at Nana’s for a couple of days. Why do you ask?
Because I have kidnapped them and they are magically here with me… and my two purr things – Poseidon and Marmalade. Trust me, we are all taking good care of the pawrents. We won’t let them get into too much trouble… but considering Bacon’s dad I think that asks for way too much, right? And we all know where Bacon’s dad will be. At any spectacular restaurant he can find – howls with laughter! So stay tuned next week. I’m sure there will be lots of details to spill.
