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 ❤

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon –  It is that time of the year to celebrate graduations.  Here I am with my pup who just graduated from the top of his training class.  I told him we would go out for Mexican and a little Samuel Adams for the pop if you know what I mean.  These classes don’t come cheap.  But only the best for my son.  I told little Bubba that we would take a selfie to remember this moment forever.  They are only young once and grow so fast.  If I close my eyes, he might be driving next week!  Signed Big Bubba.

Dear BB – Now that is so awesome my friend.  What a way to celebrate the moment at paw.  And you are right.  The little tykes grow up so fast.  At first I had a little rolling stone and now he travels so much I have no clue where he is this week – snorts with piggy laughter.  Enjoy the little minutes friend!


Dear Bacon – There I was minding my own business playing in the hood.  The master called me and I came willing.  That’s when he started spelling words.  Really?  We can spell you know.  Then I heard the letters to that God forsaken place – gulps – the V.E.T.  I was like, “Whatcha talkin bout Willis?” Yep, I call my human by his first name when he says that three lettered bad word.  As if anyone wants to go and get felt up by the V.E.T.  Do your humans do this?  Signed Arnold

Dear Arnold – The man has some nerve.  Humans forget we are smart anipals for sure.  Of course we can spell! We can do all kinds of things the humans don’t know about it when they are not looking.  Of course, that’s a post for another day – snorts!  I think you should ignore the human.  Who really *needs* to go get felt up?… well maybe if there is a cute poodle involved and that is a strong maybe!


Dear Bacon – Do you ever wonder why the earth move sometimes?  No not like around orbit or anything.  I mean like you are in the house and you hear a huge bang or a rumble on the streets.  It’s not what you think.  You may *think* that it’s maybe a thunder storm or a big truck.  Nope it’s not.  It’s us Super Squirrels letting pooches know who really is in charge – us.  This is a picture of me fixing to rock a dog’s world.  Just imagine what the dog looked like when he saw me in mid-strike.  HA!  Signed Super Squirrel

Dear Super Squirrel – OMP!  It all makes sense now.  This is why Australia doesn’t have squirrels.  Possibly – and I stress possibly – all the continents were united and you Super Squirrels took force like the Marvel comics and broke everything apart.  Tell me my friend, am I on the right track?  Try to keep your strikes down okay.  We don’t need anymore continental drifts – snorts.


 

Dear Bacon – I don’t get it.  I’m not amused.  First up my human goes into hysterics when he looks at me and calls me Scooby.  He is always offering me Scooby snacks and asking me if I’m ready for a mystery.  The line was drawn when he got me this new collar.  I think my human has went over the fine line of sanity.  I really do.  Can you help my human out?  His name is Shaggy and he is even talking about taking me to something called DragonCon this year.  What the heck is that?  Barks – Scoob

Dear Scoob – Oh dude, your owner is just having a lot of fun for sure.  I can see Scooby Doo in you.  Scooby Doo is like a happening pooch that is great at solving mysteries and he even belongs to a gang.  Of course the gang is called Mystery Inc.  It’s not a bad thing at all my friend.  And this DragonCon thing is a huge convention where you can meet so many new friends.  Heck, you might even meet someone that looks like you.  What a blast it would be.  Maybe Houdini can come dressed as Scrappy?  Look Scrappy up – it would be a blast!


Dear Bacon – Do you ever feel like you are being made the butt of all your staff’s jokes?  My staff put these glasses on me and have not stopped laughing since.  Heck, the mommy almost made water down her leg from laughing so hard.  Who says that us anipals are the ‘kids’ these days.  Really!  Signed Googly

Dear Googly – Shaking my head.  I understand completely.  My humans are two of the biggest kids ever here in the south.  I don’t trust them to leave the house by themselves.  Trouble doesn’t find them.  They find trouble.  It’s so embarrassing.  You just keep your eye on the situation my friend.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

HAPPY CINCO de MAYO my friends!!

You’re asking yourself what does that mean?  I’m here to tell you.  May 5th is a date that is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride – to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first five years of the American Civil War.  This date of May 5th is not to be confused with September 16th which is Mexican Independence Day.

 

Go out and show your support for Cinco de Mayo – have some Mexican food and celebrate your support.

I know Bacon is going to encourage his mom and dad to go out for date night tonight and have fun.  I think he’s encouraging them because he thinks they will bring him back a piggy bag.  🙂 smart pig huh?

Celebrate my friends and have a great and safe time!

National Pig Day!

TODAY IS *MY* DAY!

Normally, I would let me friend Journalist Rocky the Squirrel tell you about important and interesting holidays.  But today, well today is *my* day.

I bet you didn’t know that I have an entire holiday to myself? Well – I do!! Today is National Pig Day. I wait all year for my holiday. This is my third one and the party is on!

But you’re probably asking yourself what is national pig day?

“National Pig Day

National Pig Day is an event held annually on March 1 in the United States to celebrate the pig. The holiday celebration was started in 1972 by sisters Ellen Stanley, a teacher in Lubbock, Texas, and Mary Lynne Rave of Beaufort, North Carolina.

According to Rave, the purpose of National Pig Day is “to accord the pig its rightful, though generally unrecognized, place as one of man’s most intellectual and domesticated animals.”

Since today is my day, I get to do what I want… within limitations. I get my favorite foods. I get the extra loving and snuggles. I get a piggy massage. I get my hooves done. Whatever I want – it’s all about pleasing this piggy. To all my fellow pig friends – cash in on this our holiday – enjoy it to the fullest!!

Spotlight Thursday – A Celebration of our Friend Stuart

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to our first edition of 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 new series!


image

UPDATE:  This post was already set up to highlight my pal Stuart.  Then we heard about his passing on 12/12/2015.  We were all so upset to hear the news just as everyone else was.  We went back and forth trying to decide to post this today but then thought YES.  

Let’s celebrate the life of our good friend Stuart.  

We know he’s watching over all of us and let’s spend today not in sorrow but remembering the life of our pal and what he meant to all of us.  And by all means, let’s remember his wonderful sense of humor! ❤  So join us my friends as we celebrate the life of Stuart in his interview.  Please feel free to share this page, your stories of how you met and how he has touched your heart.


Name: My AKC name is BoBo’s Over the Shoulder Dream Choice, but my friends, like you, can call me Stuart. Stuart the Scottie. I also answer to “Stu Pot”, “Lamb Chop”, “Stumeister”, “Love Boy” and “Streudelhead”. But don’t tell anybody. Actually, I don’t answer to anything unless I want to.

Age: Well, technically I’m 9. But people think I’m a gazillion because my brindle hairs make me look like a gray old man. To tell you the truth, I walk like an old man sometimes, but that’s just because I’m bored. I can get a kick in my kaboodle any time I want.

Location: Richmond, VA

Web/Blog Page:  Scottie Chronicles You can also find me on Twitter, Tumbler and Pinterest.

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Oh. I thought they were nice. Nice enough to fall asleep in one’s lap for a while and to stare at the other one’s eyes once I woke up. It worked. Because they came to pick me up the next week. I still fall asleep with them, but I don’t stare at them too much any more. Don’t want them to think I can’t live without them, now would I? No. I. Would. Not.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  .I was only 10 weeks old at the time, but I knew I was home just as soon as our car pulled away from the place where I was born. Those folks weren’t nice. They didn’t like me and they wanted me gone. I didn’t even know how to play like most puppies. Good riddance I say. My peeps – as I call them – love me to pieces and I love them. The past is forgotten. Well, not really forgotten. I still have bad dreams sometimes about that awful place. But my peeps are always there for me. Geez. I gotta stop with this mushy stuff. It’s unbecoming to a Scottie.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  .I do so many things that the peeps don’t know about, but it must have been the time I got caught on the sofa in the big room. Now, I know I’m not supposed to get up on that thing. But I do it all the time. Been doing it for years. What the peeps don’t know, won’t hurt them, right?

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Now that’s an interesting question. I’d say they’re about even. I get what I want. Whenever I want it. No question about that. Absoroootly no question.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That I’m an old man. I fool people all the time. Just the other day, a neighbor with one of those designer dogs saw me chase a squirrel. He was amazed. “Wow! Look at Stuart go! I’ve never seen him do that!” Right buddy. And you’ll be lucky to see it again. I’m not old, I’m just very particular about how much energy I exert. Not like that BOUNCY thing you’ve got.. I. Do. Not. Jump. On. People.
