Hello sweet friends. How was your Christmas holiday? Barks – can you say that we anipals played too hard here at the Hotel Thompson. We were chasing each other up and down and all around the Hotel Thompson. It was a blast!
And do you like my new Christmas onesie that I got in my Christmas stocking? Can you read what it says on the butt? It says, “I Party With Santa”. Isn’t that so appropriate? HA!
Well I hope you had a great holiday and week sweet friends. I leave you today with the last Jokes with Daddy for the year. Hope you enjoy!
Do you know what this picture is my friends? It’s me getting plenty of rest today. Why? Because when mom gets home today from the worky place – guess what? She will be home for TEN ENTIRE DAYS with us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson. Can you believe that? Hops around with puppy excitement. We can’t believe it here! We are that thrilled. Ten whole days of snuggles and treats and fun and rides. It will be a blast. In fact, that was our Christmas wish from Santa this year – to have mom home more. What’s your wish?
I leave you now with my crazy daddy. I think he’s excited to have mommy home too for a while ❤
Barks! Hello friends – how are you doing? I’m just here chilling out on *my* ottoman. It’s the perfect place to hang out to watch television. This date I was watching the cartoon channel. You gotta love some Scooby Doo – he rocks totally! Do you like my onesie I’m wearing? Notice the teddy bear on my butt? It’s been following me around. I keep trying to catch him but he’s fast. The outfit keeps me warm and cuddly but I do have one bad thing to say about it. Do you know how hard it is to maintain your toughness while barking at the mailman dressed in a cute little onesie with a teddy bear on your butt? The mailman laughed at me. Can you believe that friends? He laughed! A nice loud chuckle at that. I’m so going to have to rethink my attire.
Today, I leave you with something that daddy has found recently while shopping. All of us here at the Hotel Thompson think that this is one of our favorite Santas. What do you think?
Hello my sweet friends – another week down and that brings us almost to the end of the month – where has this year gone?! It’s like I sneezed and it was my birthday and now it’s almost time for the holidays – barks with puppy enthusiasm. I so can’t wait for the holidays, can you? Those are the months we anipals all live for here at the Hotel Thompson.
I want to share something that daddy found in the market this past week. Take a look at that bag of Begging Strips?! Oh my puppy heavens! If a certain puppy had that can you imagine what that certain puppy would feel like?! That certain puppy would be on top of the world for sure in his puppy heaven. So knowing that, why didn’t daddy bring me said bag? Shame on him… right? Daddy should go back right this minute and get said bestest puppy in the world said bag of happiness. Right? Help me out my friends okay. Said puppy wants no NEEDS begging strips of that quantity.
Today with Jokes with Daddy, I wanted to show you that not every time brother Bacon video tapes daddy is it a great time. Even the best of us have bloopers. Enjoy my friends.
I’ve been watching television and this certain commercial comes on that kind gets under my piggy skin. I’m not sure if you have seen this yet. I can’t hold it in any longer or this little oinker is going to squeal!
Breathe. I’m okay. Really I am. It’s Purina Beggin’ Poppers. Purina if you are listening, please take note. I am *not* amused. Really. Why does it have to be a piggy snout that you are popping these treats off to dogs? Friends, have you seen this commercial? Here, take a look.
Do you see what I mean? I know it looks cute and everything but why a pig? Why can’t it be a cat? Why can’t it be a roo? Why does it have to be any animal? Why can’t you just advertise that you can ‘pop’ those treats from the lid? On the Purina web site, it says quote:
These bacon-wrapped, cheesey bites launch from a rubber pig’s nose for a treat that’s a blast for you AND your best friend!
Wrong. WRONG. It’s not a blast for you and your best friend. Mommy doesn’t see the blast in this and I don’t either. Stomps piggy hooves. What if I come up with a creation that pops treats from you dog nose. How would that be? I just don’t get it. Shakes piggy head and is off to write a letter to Purina. I wonder if they will answer my email? I will certainly let you know.
P.S. You can’t stop laughing now – snorts.
UPDATE: I received an email back from Purina – snorts. Case No. 19096004 – A note from Purina. This is what it said:

Ok snorts – I know it sounds a little “form letter” but hey – they wrote me back. That’s great! I think I’m on the right track with marketing this product in another way – double snorts!
