Paw Time with Houdini

See I can be a good boy… most of the time anyway.  But on this particular day, I had the patience of a saint!  Really I did.  Remember last Sunday being Mother’s Day?  Well, the one thing that my mommy doesn’t get a lot of is sleeping in on the weekends.  So Sunday, daddy got all of us up and out of the bedroom so mom could just sleep in.  He fed us all and we tried to stay quiet.  Of course daddy feeding us isn’t the same as mommy feeding us and talking to us.  But we gave her a day.

I sat patiently on daddy and the side of the couch waiting for mom to come out of their bedroom and down the hall.  I was on guard waiting… waiting… and then waiting some more… and then it happened.

Mom came out of the bedroom!

I’m not sure which one of us was more happy.  We barked, grunted and meowed and then dad grunted cause he was happy mommy was finally going to take him out to eat… of course her choice of restaurant for her day.  And then, you know letting those two out together there is going to be some trouble.  Check out the video they made Mother’s Day.  Shaking my head.  Even after almost 30 years, those two are gross.

Paw Time with Houdini

This is my upward crane pose in doggy yoga – barks with puppy laughter.  I went to work with mom one day and of course I was on my best behavior.  This was me begging for her to stop work and take a break to hold me because well you know I needed some reassurance of how much she loved me.  Do you ever get like that?  Of course, she held me for the longest time. I even sat in her lap and on top of her desk while she worked.  She said she could work over me… and she did – barks with puppy laughter.

Today I leave you with something from daddy.  You know that he and mom can not go out unchaperoned together.  That leads to trouble.  Today’s video from daddy just proves that point.  Hope you enjoy it my friends. Smooches and puppy licks.

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks with puppy laughter!!  Oh my friends last weekend I had the bestest time ever.  First I went to my spa appointment.  There is just something so relaxing about a long hot oatmeal bath followed by a puppy massage.  Then my groomer cut me into a cute little style, dried and primped me up to look so darn cute for mommy when she picked me back up.  When mom/dad picked me back up, mom just gushed and kept giving me kisses.  She said I was her cutest little puppy.  Of course I gave her kisses too.

Then we all got into the Prius (which is awesome – I can see out all of the windows!) to drive home.  But on the way home, mom made what she called a detour.  And I have to tell you, I liked this detour thing.  Mom got me my very first ever Puppicino – thud puppy down.  That thing was fantastic!  My first taste made both of my ears go up.  Then I had to go deep down into the cup and got it all over my face.  Mom just laughed when she cleaned me up.

After I got home, mom washed my face more and I was just darn tuckered out.  Who wouldn’t be, right?  Mom said she could tell by the look on my face that I was tired so she tucked me into the big bed and laid down with me for what she called a nanny nap.  I so enjoyed that!

Yawns, I think I might still be tuckered out.  So now my friends I’m going to leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Take it away pop!

Barks – mom did you call me?  Cause I could have sworn I heard a wrapper – what was it?  A piece of cheese?  A cracker?  Potato chips?  I know you called my name – barks with puppy laughter.  Mom started laughing at my picture.  We were both taking a nap.  Mom got up to go to the potty.  I was comfortable so I stayed.  I was sound asleep too.  That’s when I swore I heard mommy call my name – HA!  Mom did share a small piece of cheese with me in the end.  See, I told you she called my name.

Barks!  Do you ever play hide and go seek with your humans?  I love that game!  One day this week, mom came home from the worky place and I wasn’t in my usual position guarding the front door via the top of the chaise.  It worried mom so she called my name.  I didn’t come.  So mom then went into immediate worry mode and went to find me.  I was curled up under mom’s blanket in the big bed.  I was just so tired from guarding the house that the time got away from me.  That and of course I was warm and toasty from being under the blankets.  Of course she had to pick me up and cuddle me while she walked around the house.  Hey, maybe I should ‘hide’ like this more often… you think?

There we were this past week all cozy at the Hotel Thompson.  Mother Nature is still being psycho.  Some days it was hot while other days it was cold.  Mom was so cold that one day she just couldn’t get warm.  So what did she do?  She put on her puppy onesie.  It actually has paws, a hood with ears and a tail.  She was hilarious in this get up.  And it has feets as well.  She was rocking it and getting warm.  I snuggled up next to her and we were both snoozing in no time.  I agree to this outfit.  Do you have a onesie?  What kind do you have?  Mom should have put my onesie on as well.  We could have both strutted around the Hotel Thompson together.

Who says that real dogs can’t wear pink?  I so can do that.  I played in that pink shirt so hard and long the other day that I passed out on mommy.  She had to carry me to bed.  I was beyond worn out.  Okay maybe Hemi was involved and perhaps we were chasing each other.  There could be some fact to that.  And don’t get me wrong.  Hemi is short to the ground and very light on his paws.  You should have seen him ricocheting off of the furniture and walls.  For a short time, mom/dad said it was like having a bunch of kindergartners in the house going wild.  I think mom was just upset because we trapped daddy into our game playing for a while too – he’s not so light on his feet.  Barks with puppy laughter.

Barks!  You know sometimes our humans are weird and forgetful.  I get that.  Really I do.  But my mom forgetting about sweet little moi?  That’s just disgraceful.  In fact, let me tell you the story and then you tell me what you think.

Mom/dad went out the other night and came home late.  Mom goes straight to the kitchen to do her nightly ritual things – set the microwave for dad’s lunch the next day, fixing the medicines for the next day, setting the coffee maker for the morning, making sure all of us anipals have food and fresh water, etc.

Also at night, we anipals all get bedtime treats.  You know just a little something to hold us over until the morning so our tum-tum’s don’t growl.

Well mom gave Hemi his cat chews.  Mom gave Bacon his strawberry.  And then mom walked to the bathroom.  Hold up mom – wait a minute. You forgot me.  I chased her to the bedroom and watched her as she got ready for bed.  I jumped on the bed and kept licking my lips trying to tell her hello – moi – moi – you forgot moi!

Finally when she went to the bathroom to wash her face and brush her teeth, it dawns on her.  We finally have a winner!  How could she forget about me?  Does that ever happen to you my friends?

Hello sweet friends – we finally made it to Friday.  Thank goodness for that!  I just had to share my picture from this week with you.  This is me laying with mom cuddling me.  See Mr. Elephant?  That’s my new toy that mom bought for me.  He’s just my size.  He still squeaks and I keep dragging him around the house by his nose.  It’s perfect.  Can you see my eyes in this picture?  Barks with puppy laughter.  That’s what I keep telling mom too.  I need a haircut.  I think I need a spa day for sure.

Paw Time with Houdini

It’s been a long week here at the Hotel Thompson.  We’ve been having weird weather.  You know the kind that brings out all of your doggy senses.  So you get up/down all through the night to check things out because you know you gotta protect the humans.  Bacon and Hemi don’t seem to mind the weather changes.  It drives me crazy and makes my inner Yorkie come out.  So here I am all tuckered out on my ottoman in the living room in front of the fireplace.  I was bushed from getting up/down the night before.  Speaking of which, I have to share a little funny with you.  I can jump.  Don’t let anyone tell you anything different.  Mom/dad’s bed in their bedroom is now obstacle for me.  I can run and jump on that thing anytime I want.  But I found something so much better these days.  In fact, daddy didn’t believe mom when she told him until he heard it himself.  Here it goes…. mom/dad sleeping so hard in a deep sleep, I jump down to check the perimeter.  When I come back, I waddle over to mom’s side of the bed.  I will perch up on the side where she lays facing the wall and growl at her.  I call her my elevator.  With enough growling she wakes up and lifts me in the bed with her.  Of course she fusses but I know she doesn’t mind.  I call her my personal elevator.  Dad is just lucky I don’t do it him.  In fact, I think he’s jealous.  Barks with puppy laughter!  Do you do anything like this to your humans to keep them in line of who really is the boss of your crib?  Now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – enjoy and try not to cringe.
