Spotlight Thursday – Meet Toby

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

♥ FRIENDS – make sure you leave some messages.  Toby will be checking in throughout the day and answering comments. ♥


Name:  Toby Wilson

Age:  I am twelve years old. My birthday was July 18th.

Location:  I live in Hampton, Ga with my Mom, dad, and my brother, Max( he’s 4 and he doesn’t look like me but he’s brother all the same.

Web/Blog Page:  My Mom’s Facebook Page

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Hmmm my first thoughts when I met my new parents. I think I was about six and when my other dad brought me to their house I didn’t realize I was staying. When I got there I ran up the stairs and all over the house and then something happened.  My new Mom took me for a walk. I peed on all the mailboxes in the neighborhood. Oh I hope it’s OK I said peed. It was so much. Then we went back to the house and I looked all over the house for my dad (now my former dad) and I couldn’t find him no where. I laid at the top of the stairs and waited for him to come back. I was sad. My new mom petted me trying to make feel better but I just wanted my mom and dad to get me. Then later my new dad came in and I barked at him and then you know what happened?  My new dad and mom took me for a walk and I peed on the mailboxes again. It took me a little while to realize my first mom and dad weren’t coming back but now I wouldn’t give anything for my new mom and dad now( well actually they’re not new anymore). I still get to see my old my mom and dad sometimes, which is great, but I prefer my new mom and dad.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  I’m not sure. I know love the things my mom and dad do with me. They will give me belly rubs when I ask. I get a lots of treats. They even let me have food from their plate. I love my mom and dad and love being here with them forever.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   My “Oh No moment” is when I just have to poop in the house when mom and dad are gone. I have to cover it up so they don’t see it. I use some of Max’s toys to cover it with in hopes they don’t see it but somehow they still see and scold me. But when it’s my mom, she’ll feel bad and still give me a treat. I so love her. 

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  My mom is so wrapped around my paws. She will do anything for me. I just look her and she says, “OK Toby, but only one treat”. I finish that one and I look at her again and she’ll give me another one. She picks me up and holds me whenever I want her to. Not my Dad.  He’ll say I have enough.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  The biggest misconception humans think about me when a car starts without me in it and I start barking at it and I won’t let them leave.  They think I am scared of the car but that’s not it at all.  I just want to go for a ride.  I don’t know why they won’t take me for a ride.  I really am a fun guy.


Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

If You’re Rotten and You Know It, Wag Your Tail

I’m not saying that I’m rotten but I am a tad bit spoiled… just a tad here at the Hotel Thompson. It helps that I’m the bright star in my mom’s eyes. I’m also not saying that I get away with a lot of things but there are times things are overlooked if you know what I mean.

Take this video of me – yep mom struck again. There is no privacy here at the hacienda from a video or camera. If that’s the price I pay for being mom’s little prince, then I guess I’ll just have to suck it up – snort. This is me waddling around on my king size Egyptian cotton sheet. I love that sheet! I just don’t know what I’m going to do when that sheet goes to the sky above. I drag it all through the house, up on the sofa with mom, in the kitchen to lay on when mom cooks, in my room to sleep on.. .you get the picture. It’s so soft and cuddleable. Yep that’s a word now… cuddleable.

Let me warn you, I am not this big. You know what they say about the camera making you look like your 10 pounds heavier. It’s true. Really it is. I’m still a snuggle bug and lap piggy. Mom loves me regardless. Enjoy the video. Don’t you love mom’s voice? It’s what puts me to sleep every night when she tells me my bed time story. Enjoy – XOXOX – Bacon

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon,

Rocky the Squirrel told us to write to you. We are members of the band Squirrel. We play a lot around the Oaks and Pines areas of the neighborhood. You’ve probably heard us jamming to some classics like, “Shake Your Bushy Tail”; “I Love Nuts and Seeds”; and our biggest hit “That Dog is Mine”. Rocky says you’re the man to get some publicity. How about it oinker? Signed Band Squirrel

Dear Band Squirrel,

WOW – that Rocky gets around, doesn’t he? I guess that makes sense with him being a journalist and everything. Love your songs – keep up the great work and keep shaking those tails my friends!

***************************************************************************************************************************

Dear Bacon,

What? Why do you look at me like that? Doesn’t your purr things wear glasses and read the newspaper while lounging on the sofa? They don’t? I’m shocked. I’m going to have to email those purr things of yours and get them educated. Signed Kitty Professor

Dear Kitty Professor

That is really the look. It just threw me off guard seeing you all like that as if you were well human. I’m more shocked than anything. My purr things don’t do that. I’m going to have to show them your picture of how an educated kitty acts around the house. Maybe the Mouse Girl will learn something new for a change. I can only hope! P.S. I have to ask. When you get done with that paper, do your throw it down on the floor and ‘use’ it? Snort – snicker.

Dear Bacon,

You are not the only one that loves to have his belly rubbed.  I do as well.  For some reason though, no one will do it?  What do you say little man, you want to be food rub my belly? Signed Croc

Dear Croc,

UUUMMM – I think I’ll pass.  I wouldn’t want to become food friendly in that way with someone I don’t know.  Momma said it wouldn’t be right.  But, thanks for drooling thinking of me.

Dear Bacon,

You see tourists all of the time doing their thing shopping, people watching and sitting out in the sun.  What makes us any different?  This is a picture of me on vacation last week.  It was the life!  Signed Big Man

Dear Big Man,

There is nothing like human watching while sunning oneself in nature, especially on vacation my friend.  Mom and dad said they may take me on vacation one day.  I think I may resemble your picture in the future!

************************************************************************************************************************

20130130-123759.jpgDear Bacon,

This is me and my friend Dewey.  Sometimes we don’t see eye to eye.  You ever feel that way with the purr things?  Signed Hector

Dear Hector,

Snort – pig laughter.  Yeah me and the purr things don’t see eye to eye on a lot of things at the Hotel Thompson.  Of course, we don’t physically get in that situation but I can relate.  Just give in to little Dewey.  I think he may own you!  He been talking to Journalist Rocky the Squirrel?  Snort – LOL

AAAWWW – Wouldn’t it be “Perfect”?

20130130-123819.jpgOMP (Oh my pig!) 

I can almost taste it.  It would be so delightful.  I mean, come on, we are talking about an oinker. It’s all about the food to us little hooved piglets.  It would be the perfect food.

Can you imagine it?

It would have the perfect outer layer of a banana and the perfect inner label of a strawberry.  I bet they would fly off the shelves!  It’s a heaven sent combination that I could live on for life! 

I know I can’t be the only one that would think so.  What do you think? We could call it bananaberry.  That’s a fun word!
