Paw Time with Houdini


Today is a very important day.  Why you ask?  Because today is my birthday – do a little dance – shake your captains quarters – have fun tonight!  Mom threw me a little party.  Here are some pictures from it.  It was definitely a blast!  Daddy said I scored with the gifts.  And instead of a cake, mom had me some dog friendly cookies and cupcakes made.  What a blast!

 

 

And special thank you to Phenny across the pond who sent me and my brother Hemi some birthday goodies.  We are sending you lots of meow’s, hogs and snout kisses ❤

National Nurses Week

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

 

Very important week this week – there are lots of different ways to acknowledge this wonderful professional.  Here are some important dates for you to remember:

  • May 6th thru May 12th is National Nurse’s Week.
  • May 6th is National Nurses Day
  • May 7th is National School Nurses Day
  • May 8th is National Student Nurses Day
  • May 12th is International Nurses Day

This entire week provides recognition to nurses for their contribution and commitment to quality health care.  We should all be aware of the importance of nurses in all stages of our lives from infant to elderly.  They comfort us, support us, encourage us and help us in our times of need.

Did you know? The roots of International Nurse’s Day goes back to 1953.  Dorothy Sutherland who was over the US Department of Health, Education and Welfare sent a proposal to President Eisenhower to proclaim a Nurse Day in October of the following year.  The proclamation was not officially made.  But, this week was created and gained national recognition.

Also did you know?  International Nurse’s Day is celebrated on May 12th because that is the birthday of Florence Nightingale.

So here’s a HUGE thank you to all of the wonderful nurse’s out there who take care of all of our loved ones and give that extra love.

Happy Birthday Bashful!!

 

 OMP (oh my pig!)  Can you believe that it’s been FOUR years since Bashful came to live with me here at the Hotel Thompson?  This is him all snuggled in transport the first time that I saw him – aaww.  Wasn’t he all cute and innocent in his straw bed? 

And to think of all of the places he  has been in the world?  He’s going to need extra pages in his passport book soon ❤

So, today, let’s all wish our little international rolling stone a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Cuddle Up Day and Another Special Day

 

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”

.

.

Today, January 6th, is a special day.  For one thing, it’s Cuddle Up Day.  Doesn’t that just sound wonderful?  It’s cold outside, make a fire and cuddle up for some snuggles.  And, you don’t have to cuddle with someone to appreciate this day.  Cuddle up in your favorite chair in front of that fireplace, pop in a movie, relax and enjoy your time.  Bring out one of your favorite stuffed animals – I’ve seen Bacon’s mom do that.  And hey, speaking of Bacon – cuddle up to your favorite pet.  I know Bacon will get his share of cuddles today.. as well as Houdini… as well as Hemi… as well as Mouse Girl 🙂

AND…

Today is also another special day. Today is also the big guy’s birthday here at the Hotel Thompson.  That’s right – it’s Houdini, Hemi, Mouse Girl and Bacon’s dad’s birthday.  Now, he won’t tell us how old he is but I think he was around during the dinosaur era.  Why?  Because I hear Bacon’s mom calling him T-Rex at times.  Shakes squirrel head – so that has to be true, right?

So at this time, all of us here at the Hotel Thompson would like to wish the big guy a very wonderful HAPPY BIRTHDAY.  You do so much for us from giving us nuts to cleaning our litter boxes out to even cooking for us from time to time.  You are definitely the icing on our cake… and speaking of cake – enjoy – we love you big guy!

What’s Your Story?

 It seems like people have gotten a little stressed out these days.  So, let’s have some fun my friends.  We will start:

Bacon – I got naked with a candied yam because I’m sexy as $(!$)_!* (snorts – too true)

Houdini – I beat a stripper because the voices in my head said so

Hemi – I beat Ronald McDonald because I licked a toad

Bacon’s Show and Tell

 This month, we are focusing again on embarrassing moments.  There is so many things that our humans do that is embarrassing – it’s sometimes hard to pick just one for sure.  But don’t worry, this month we are blasting daddy again… snorts with piggy laughter.  It’s what I do – what can I say?

Many years ago, mom/dad chartered a boat to themselves and went deep sea fishing.  The Captain of the boat happened to be a woman that mom/dad knew and they always had such a blast together.  So there they were about 50 miles from the shore having a great time.  Daddy is fishing away loving every minute of it while mom is talking to the ocean gods and feeding the fish if you know what I mean.  That’s when it happened.  What you ask?  Well dad started reeling in to catch a fish, pulled back on his pole and the shorts he was wearing fell down around his ankles.  Now several things happened.  Mom rolled hysterically and was of absolute no help.  Captain Elizabeth stepped in hiding her laughter to take charge.  She looked at daddy and said, “You want me to pull up your shorts or take the pole?”  Dad of course said take the pole, laughed and said thank goodness he wore underwear.
