Travels in the South

What week would be complete without a birthday cake picture?  Mom/dad went to a local italian restaurant last week for mom’s birthday.  This is a piece of wonderful cake mom got at the end of her meal.  It’s called the Black Tie Mousse Cake.  It has rich layers of chocolate cake, chocolate cheesecake and a creamy melt in your mouth mousse.  Did mom enjoy it.  YES.  It was just enjoy to enjoy and share with daddy.

Dear Bacon

20130601-011521.jpgDear Bacon – Just the facts little guy.  Nothing but the facts.  We’ve been watching too many repeats of the movies Men in Black.  Don’t ask me which is which.  We just like to dress like Kay and Jay.  You know, just for fun and giggles.  The neighborhood doesn’t know how to act when we roll into it – bark.  What do you think?  Do you like to dress up like any of your favorite guys?  Signed Kay/Jay

Dear Kay and Jay – Oh dudes – I love the look!  That is so neat.  I’ve seen those movies and ya’ll kind of look just like the two.  I think it’s the ties and sunglasses.  I would love to roam around in my costume too.  I secretly want to be a piggy super hero.  I keep asking mom to make me a cape.  I know with a cape, this little piggy would have special powers and be able to fly.  Stay cool barky things!

Dear Bacon – This little pup couldn’t take it and fell asleep.  When I woke up, there was the hunny jar near me and I was passed out.  I don’t know what happened and I don’t know why it’s so funny.  The humans keep laughing.  Can you explain?  Signed Pup Dog

Dear Pup Dog – Snorts – it is kind of funny little man.  Your humans are really playing with you.  It’s cute.  You need to ask the humans to read you the story of Winnie the Pooh.  You look like Pooh.  He liked his hunny.  No, that’s wrong.  He LOVED his hunny.  Hey, I would keep the costume for Halloween.  You’ll get lots of candy!

Dear Bacon – It doesn’t matter what kind of cat you are, we love boxes.  It’s that simple.  We will get in them and play with them.  I just wanted to let you know.  Signed Kitty Box

Dear Kitty Box – I’m not hating you on that.  I know the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson love to play with their boxes all of the time.  Mom/dad area always asking them why buy little purr thing presents when you can just give them the box.  Shrugs shoulders.  It’s a kitty thing.  I completely understand.  I tried to do the box thing too.  I didn’t get it.  I destroyed the box in less than five minutes.  Now that’s my fun time!  Enjoy the box my friend!


20130601-011621.jpg

Dear Bacon – I know the purr things like their boxes buy I prefer daddy’s guitar case.  While he plays, I crawl in there and the music puts me to sleep.  It’s actually more comfortable than it looks.  Does your human have a guitar case for you to try this?  Signed Squishy

Dear Squishy – You do look most uncomfortable.  I think I’m going to let you call this one and let you crawl in.  Dad does have a couple of cases but looking at this body, there is no way I will fit in there.  I don’t care how much I try.  Sleep on my friend!


20130601-011634.jpgDear Bacon – With summer comes doggy camp.  I thought I would snap this picture of all of us on the bus headed to camp for the week.  It’s a ball!  We get to do lots of neat things and have fun.  There really isn’t any time to miss the humans.  Do you get to go to camp?  Signed Campdoggers

Dear Campdoggers – That looks like so much fun!  As far as I get to camp is when I go to nana’s for a couple of days.  She always fattens me up so I can’t oink. 🙂  It’s fun and you know what they say.  What happens at nana’s, stays at nana’s!  Have fun at camp!

“Dear Journal – What an awesome week this was.  It was my birthday on July 3rd.  This was one of the best birthdays I’ve had in such a long time.  I was surrounded by love and I felt it.  We had a wonderful time celebrating all week – eating out and just having fun.  I felt so lucky to have so much love coming from all directions.  It was such a blessing for sure.  I didn’t count calories.  I didn’t wear my Apple i-Watch and monitor my walking.  I laughed and celebrated LIFE.  Here’s to another great year to accomplish goals now – cheers!”

Paw Time with Houdini

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?
