Paw Time with Houdini

What does one do on a cold and rainy day?  Well us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson find warm spots and take a little shut eye.  You see mom and me were on the sofa first listening to the rain outside the front window.  It was peaceful so I shut my eyes.  The next thing I knew, Hemi joined the party by sitting on mom’s legs.  Bacon was sleeping in his room and dad was on the other sofa sleeping.  It passed for rainy day time in the living room.  Mom said she would have made a fire for all of us but she didn’t want to get up and wake us all up again.  Do you have these kind of days too?  Aren’t they the best?  After a while, I think we finally moved to the bedroom for naptime together.  It was a great lazy Sunday day afternoon after all 🙂

Now I leave you with Jokes from Daddy.  I actually got him to record a new one for you today.  Have fun!

Dear Bacon

20130321-223616.jpg

Dear Bacon – I love water – I mean I L.O.V.E. water. I love it!

I get in it every chance I get.

Can you tell? LOVE WATER!! This is my happy face!! Signed Waterdog

Dear Waterdog – Nah, I can’t tell. Let me get this straight – you love water? Snort –


 

20130321-223628.jpg

Dear Bacon – I love playing hide and go seek out in nature. It’s so much fun! My best place to hide is on a tree that blends in with my fur tones.

Don’t you love playing too?! Signed – Come and Find Me

Dear Come and Find Me – You are good at that game. You know who else is good at hide and go seek? Bashful my pet rock. He hid in the fish tank with the other rocks one afternoon and it took me over an hour to find that little fellow!

I’m glad I did though – he was getting tired of holding his breath. He said he almost drowned! Keep playing my friend!


20130321-223639.jpg

Dear Bacon – The humans – they think they are so funny. They took me for my spring cut. Just a little off the back they said. This is what I came home with. I’m so embarrassed. What am I to do? Signed Wacky Cut

Dear Wacky Cut – Let’s step back and look at this with a fresh set of new eyes. You can’t change what’s been done and undo it. So, I say wear it with a statement. Make a trend in that neighborhood of yours. Next thing you know, the other dogs might be going to the groomer wanting the ‘Wacky Cut’ look and you’ve started a trend. It is hair and it will grow back.

In the mean time, strut it!


20130321-223703.jpg

Dear Bacon  – The humans have this table cloth in the kitchen that I just can’t keep off of it. I like to play the game Twister on it. I think it’s a hoot except for left front paw on yellow and left back paw on orange. That kind of gets me all twisted and I go boom.

Have you ever played this game? Signed Kitwister

Dear Kitwister – It looks fun but I’m not sure if I could play or not. You know my pot belly – it gets in the way and I have really short legs. They don’t stretch that far. Especially these days when mom says I’m getting a little fat roll on them. Fat roll – snort – that’s not fat.

That’s just loose skin from hibernating all winter. Play on my kitty friend – twist away!


20130321-223717.jpgDear Bacon – Are you a couch pig? I read where you sit on the sofa with mom at night. That’s one of my favorite past times. It doesn’t have to be night though – I like doing it all through the day. Signed Couch Kitty

Dear Couch Kitty – You know I don’t say this much but you might want to get off of the couch every once in a while. I also ‘run’ through the halls here at the Hotel Thompson before landing on the couch with mom at night. I do a lot of playing around with the purr things here. You might want to try it a couple of times – just sayin’!

Dear Bacon

20130323-183547.jpg

Dear Bacon – Why do the humans *insist* on buying these little creatures to ‘entertain’ me? They are not entertainment. They are trespassers in my home. What to do? Signed Friendly eline

Dear Friendly Feline – “Most” of us enjoy those little toys of delight. I myself even like playing with the purr toys here – don’t tell anyone. Just our little secret okay.

Try it – you might like it. Throw that thing around a bit, give it heck.


 

20130323-183607.jpg

Dear Bacon – Do you think my ears are too big for my little body? Signed Did You Hear That?

Dear Did You Hear That? – Of course not little guy – you’re still little. You’re going to grow into them. I think you’re fine!

Don’t let others bring you down.

Love what you got my friend. But hey, if you want a trade. I’ll give you my pot belly for them? Whatdayou think? Snort –


20130323-183954.jpgDear Bacon – You’ve probably heard me outside your window playing in nature in the woods. I play for nuts – you have to look at your retirement and hide those things away for the future. Happy songs! Signed Jammin’ Squrriel

Dear Jammin’ Squirrel – That’s you I’ve heard in the woods behind the house? Play on little man – play on. Awesome sounds you are putting out in nature. I’ll tell mom to throw some extra food out the back door for you.


20130327-122700.jpg

Dear Bacon – I’m the fairy bunny in nature. I pass along all of the pollen that makes the humans go sneeze. Don’t you love my wings? Signed Fairy Bunny

Dear Fairy Bunny – Stop it! See, this is why I don’t go out in nature. Can you at least cut back a little on the pollen?

Mommy is going crazy with the sneezes!


20130327-122707.jpgDear Bacon – I read that you get questions all of the time about big ears, big behinney’s, big tum-tums – BUT have you ever gotten one about big feet? Do you think mine are too big? Signed Rabbitsasquatch

Dear Rabbitsasquatch – Compared to other rabbits, nah – you have perfect feet to stomp out those forest fires… I mean to hop everywhere – PLOL. Really, all joking aside. You have perfect feet. Hey pssttt – can you do me a favor? Can you find that bunny fairy that passes out the pollen and you use those feet for me? Smile – please. HA HA HA

Dear Bacon

20140112-005551.jpgDear Bacon – What kind of joke is this?  Do you see these mysterious copy dog’s on my bed?  Please – there is only *one* king cat in this family.  End of discussion.  These have got to be imposters! Signed Lord Kitty

Dear Lord Kitty – How dare them try to get in on your royalty.  I say push them off the bed.  Show them who’s boss.  I don’t think it will hurt them – snorts.


20140112-005634.jpg

Dear Bacon – I’m really practicing on my please look.  I think I *almost* have it down pact.  What do you think?  Would you give in and give me what I was begging for?  Signed Please Sir

Dear Please Sir – Oh my!  Oliver Twist has nothing on you my friend.

I think you have the “please sir may I have another look” down to a T.  Really I do.  Perhaps, I a mere piggy should take lessons from you.

With that pose, you are certainly going to get anything you beg for!


20140112-005710.jpgDear Bacon – Just me hanging out with my lady love on a Saturday night watching some television.  The humans think we look funny.  What say you our pal?  Signed Two in Love

Dear Two in Love – I say you two look hopelessly in love with all of your hearts.  You don’t look funny at all.  Maybe the humans are jealous?


20140112-005752.jpg Dear Bacon – If there is a box, we must fit.  You know how us purr things can be.  Who cares what came in the box, we want to be in the box.  This is me and my brother doing what we do best.  Do you like boxes as much as we do?  Signed Twin Kitties

Dear Twin Kitties – That is adorable my friends.  It really is.  You got you a condo going on right there in that picture – snorts.  Me, I don’t like ‘sleeping’ in boxes but I do love destroying boxes.  Just give me five minutes alone with a box.  That’s all I ask.  I will have the bestest of all times!

I’ve Created a New Season – Happy Sprinter

This picture is from Wikipedia.  It shows the typical seasons – Spring, Summer, Fall and then Winter.  That’s the way it’s suppose to fall.  But this year, dear old Mother Nature is not playing fairly.  Mommy says she needs hormone shots and daddy says she needs more dates with Father Time.  I’m not sure which one is right.  I just know that maybe she needs a kick in the butt.  Yep, I said.  I kick right smack in the middle of her captains quarters.

You see, this weekend is what I’m talking about.  Saturday here at the Hotel Thompson we get up and it is beautiful.  There’s no other way to put it.  The birds are chirping (and that’s a story for another time – snorts), the sun is out, the wind is just right and the temperatures are in the 60’s.  You couldn’t ask for a more gorgeous day.

20140112-143627.jpg

Our neighbor Big Daddy had cut our yard and the back yard was spectacular.  Thanks Big Daddy!  We went out there and ran for a while.  Mommy says it was for me to get some sun and I said I understood.  Secretly I knew she wanted me to run some excess Winter weight off so I would sleep more deeply tonight.  I’m good with that.  I just wonder why she didn’t make daddy do the same.  Double snorts.

It was a wonderful day.  Lots of running, loving and snuggles.

Then BAM!  What a change Sunday.  Sunday brought us rain, cool weather and strong winds.  We could actually sit inside and hear the winds!  We all got up and had breakfast together.  It was so damp and yuck outside that after breakfast, we all went back to bed.  Now, I’m not hating days like this because usually, like this day, when we go back to bed we all get on the Select Comfort for a siesta.  It was great.

Picture this.  A king sized Select Comfort bed with two humans, one purr things, one pooch and a piggy.  Snorts, Me and Houdini are a 65 with mommy on the Select Comfort.  Daddy and Hemi are a 100.  That’s just too hard for this little oinker.  When we got up from our nap, it was still yuck outside.

Now, I’m telling you all of this for a reason.  It’s suppose to be Spring but it still acts like Winter.  I’m suggesting a new season called – Sprinter.  You get it?  Spring with Winter.  So sometime today, tell someone Happy Sprinter.  Then smile and remember my little story here.  🙂

Happy Sprinter my pals!

Dear Bacon

20130225-204558.jpg

Dear Bacon – You talk about having your own room.  All 8 of us have to share a room and this is our kitty bunk beds.  It gets kind of crowded and you really can’t stretch out… let alone snuggling up to any kind of a blanket or pillow.  We even heard that the kitties at the Hotel Thompson sleep in a ‘real’ bed.  Is that true??  Signed Eight is Enough

Dear Eight is Enough – WOW – that is a tall kitty bunk bed there.  I would think that stretching out on the floor would be more freedom than confined to that little compartment.  Is it first come, first served or is everyone assigned their ‘bed’?  Make the best out of it my little purr things!  Enjoy the moments in life where you can.  P.S.  Yes the purr things here get to sleep with mom and dad on their select comfort bed.  Rotten aren’t they?  … like I don’t know nothing about being rotten… snort.


Dear Bacon – 20130225-204658.jpgI hear the “V” word… you know “vet”.  I tried to hide but the master found me like this.  What do you think I should do next time?  Signed Hide N Seek

Dear Hide N Seek – Well first of all, next time hide under something that you can actually ‘hide’ underneath.  Just because you can’t see your master doesn’t mean your master can’t see you.  Follow me?  But hey on the other hand, that is really a cute picture of your captain quarters – snort – LOL.


20130225-204751.jpgDear Bacon – Sometimes the best things in life are when we sit back, relax and reflect on life.  You know, don’t sweat the small stuff.  I have a favorite rock that I like to sun myself on and reflect.

It helps me to keep stress free and ponder my life in general.   Signed Pondering Ribbit

Dear Pondering Ribbit – WOW – Well you do look relaxed my green friend.  I tried meditation in my bedroom.  I just couldn’t get my mind to quit focusing on running and eating though.

Perhaps I will try again.  Stay green my friend.


20130225-204814.jpg

Dear Bacon – I’m the sheriff here in these parts.  Bark Bark – you think I fit the part?  I may be small but I’m a force to be reckoned with!  Signed Walking Small with a Big Bark

Dear Walking Small with a Big Bark – I think you can possibly get away with it – you are just too cute with that hat on!!

And those big brown eyes, yeah, I would let you arrest me.  Snort.

P.S. I’ve seen some political people on the television.  I think you have a shot just like everyone else!  Be firm but be fair – that should be your motto.


20130225-204851.jpgDear Bacon – My master is always telling me, “Safety first”.  Every time we go on a road trip, she straps me in.  Other dogs don’t get strapped in.  Signed Wanna be Free

Dear Wanna be Free – If all of the other barky things jumped off a cliff, would you?  If they all got taken to the doggy jail…AKA pound… would you want to go too?  Your human cares for you with all of their heart and doesn’t want anything to happen to you.  I say go with it little man.  Enjoy the extra treatment.  P.S.  I’ll try to hide this picture from my mom.  The next thing I know, she will be buckling Houdini into a carseat like this.

Shopping with Mom/Dad

What the cream cheese?!   I’m serious.  My mom and dad do not find trouble.  Trouble finds them.  I’m serious.  You don’t believe me?  Okay.  Let me show you.

This is exhibit A.  This is a real book in the book store written by Ira Alterman. You see it was all innocent.  Mom and dad went to a vintage book store to find us anipals some new reading material for our bedtime stories.  That is when dad found this book.  Mom and dad had a fit and laughed like little kids.  I mean I don’t know what the big deal is really.  We did have a fat pussy here at the Hotel Thompson and her name was Mouse Girl.  Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

And no they didn’t buy the book.  Can you believe it was $100.00?!  Mom said they could keep the fat pussy.  Snorts!

What at is the craziest book title you have ever seen?
