This month, we are focusing on gifts. Since Christmas was just last month, let’s focus on that one thing that you received that was absolutely wonderful. Maybe it wasn’t from Christmas – perhaps it was on your birthday last year. What is it – why can’t you live without it?
Okay this month it’s easy. What’s the ONE gift that mom can’t live without? Of course, it would have to be her Apple i-Watch that her sister gave her. It does everything. It’s like an extension of her cell phone that she wears on her wrist. It’s a watch. It’s a phone. It’s a trainer. It’s a therapist with her breathing and stress levels. It keeps up with her steps/her miles. It challenges her to be more. It does everything! So yes, that would be the one gift that mom can’t live without. Much, MUCH thank you to her sister – Tina!
My dear friends – today is a very special day. Why do you ask? Well today is Friday the 13th. And guess what? It’s the only Friday the 13th we will have this year in 2016. See, I told you it was special.
So I looked far and near and found a very special story for you my friends. Are you ready? Here’s my hoof in case you need to hold it. This one might just send shivers up and down your spine and leave your night light on tonight when you go to bed.
This woman – lets just call her Judy – was in the hospital. Every morning when the nurses would check on her and ask her how she slept the night before, she would tell them she had an awful night. That a little girl kept coming into her room wanting to play. And although she was sick, Judy loved children and would stay up play with the little girl for hours. Well the nurses told Judy that there were no little children on the floor and at that time of the night no one should be visiting. Judy shook her head and was adamant that the little girl was coming every night to play.
Later that night just like clock work, the little girl showed up again in Judy’s room. Before the little girl could get all the way in the room, Judy snapped a picture with her cell phone. What do you see in this picture my friends?
Dear Bacon – Help! Let alone I had to get a bath. Let alone they wrapped me up like a tight burrito so much so that my tongue hung out. Then the human had to take my picture. Really? I can’t even fight it I’m wrapped so tight. Any thoughts on how to handle this fiasco? Signed Burrito in Training
Dear Burrito in Training – Let’s look at this on a positive note. Your humans love you so much that they (1) bathed you; (2) wrapped you up to dry you so you wouldn’t get sick in this awful cold weather and then (3) took a pic of you. Sounds to me like they are working hard towards next years Christmas cards. You can never plan too far in advance my friend. So this is what you do. Wait for them to go to sleep – you know the snoring, tongue hanging out and drooling from the mouth. Then take their picture to replace yours. Simple as that. Snorts.
Dear Bacon – I’m not sure about you but us dogs, we can spell. We know exactly what you are spelling when you say V.E.T. I’m not the kind of dog that runs but you spell V.E.T. and I’m gone like the speed of light. Nobody likes those guys at the V.E.T. office – I don’t care how many treats you get. What say you Bacon? Signed G.O.N.E.
Dear G.O.N.E. – I concur. Nobody likes the peeps at the vet’s office. No way! I mean my goodness they think giving you a treat makes up for the violation they give to your captain’s quarters – I don’t think so. I mean heck, at least you can buy me a Mint Julep or something first – snorts with piggy laughter.
Dear Bacon – This should serve the human for leaving their camera phone on last night. I left them a little something to find on their camera roll. What do you think – do I have it or what? Signed Hot for Hollywood
Dear Hot for Hollywood – Oh absolutely my friend. How could anyone resist that cute little face and tongue? I wish I could be a fly on the wall when your human finds that picture on their camera phone. I bet they laugh and then oohh and aaaww for hours!
Dear Bacon – I don’t get it. I live in the south and every time someone new sees me, they say, “Bless his little heart.” I don’t get it. What does that exactly mean. You live in the south – do you get that often? Signed This is My Happy Face
Dear This is My Happy Face – You see here in the south, that is a term of endearment. Peeps often say that for no apparent reason. I’ve heard peeps tell this to babies, older peeps, anipals and to each other. I don’t think they mean anything by it. Nope not at all. How could they? I look at you and see a masculine little guy that is going somewhere in the world. You just accept that term as a compliment, hold your head up high and march right on into 2016!
Dear Bacon – I was asleep – you know taking one of many naps during the day. I had my little hoodie on for some added heat. My human woke me up and said, “Say Cheese?” All my tummy heard was cheese so I stuck my tongue out. Don’t you know that was the moment my mom decided to snap my pic. Why – tell me why – do these humans do this? Signed Sticking Tongue Out
Dear Sticking Tongue Out – Personally I think sometimes the humans try to catch us off guard in an attempt to get an amusing look from us for their cameras. Every once in a while, I let mom *think* she has me and I do something for her amusement. What can I say? It keeps the humans happy therefore we get more treats. I say play it for all its worth my friend. Work it!
Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to email me your letters and pictures ❤
Welcome my friends to another week with Paw Time with Houdini. Last weekend, Nana got a new puppy named Dingo. He’s a shepherd mix. Very cool to have a bigger uncle. I say bigger because this guy is bigger than my brother Bacon. Can you believe that? Well, he’s taller and has LONG legs like a giraffe. Okay, maybe not as long as a giraffe but they are super LONG.
Mommy took me up to see Dingo in a meet/greet session. You know so we could get used to being around each other. This picture to the right is of Dingo when mommy came in to Nana’s house. Mom says he had kind of a “what the heck is that thing in your arms” kind of look. She wanted to make sure Dingo knew I was a friend and not a two piece snack.
So mommy sat down with me in her arms and we all had a conversation together. Mommy introduced us to each other and told Dingo we were all family. We don’t hurt family. Mommy then explained that I come up from my house every once in a while to spend time with Nana. And although Dingo had the job of keeping Nana company and protecting her now, I still have a job too. We all have to do our parts. Mommy then let us say hello and sniff at each other for a bit while I still sat in her arms.
Then she put me down and of course I jumped over to the other couch where dad was sitting. Dingo came up to me and I said a few words to him to let him know I was welcoming him to the family. I also told him that I had plenty of toys up here at Nana’s and he was welcomed to play with any of them. I also told him that we had a big back yard down at the Hotel Thompson and he could come down and play with me from time to time too. And, that we could go on walkies around the neighborhood together. He couldn’t fit into my stroller but he could walk beside me and protect from other dogs – that was part of his job now. I think he understood everything I was telling him. Especially about the part of taking care of Nana.
Then he told me that he would take care of things up here at Nana’s and that I didn’t have to worry about that. He also told me that he would protect me because he said I would look like shark bait walking the streets by myself. We exchanged cell numbers and told each other we would Facetime each other to keep each other posted on what was going on with each side of the neighborhood.
I have to say that I think he’s a pretty cool guy. He still has a lot of puppy in him he said – he’s only 4 months – so that makes me the oldest by 6 months. I think we will both have a long time of growing up together and playing.
I told him I would be up on Tuesday. That was our scheduled spa day and he would absolutely love spa day. We get the works then when the groomer comes out and makes us all pretty for our humans. Humans love that.
Well my friends, I hope you had a great time visiting with me this week. Until next time, have an awesome weekend!
