Spotlight Thursday – Meet Reilly and Denny

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!


Name:  Reilly and Denny

Age:  Reilly is 9 and Denny is 5

Location:  Jacksonville, Florida

Web/Blog Page:  http://cowspotdog.blogspot.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Reilly – I was 3 weeks old when I first met my peeps – my breeder had two shelties and two dachshund and was a very caring of wonderful lady. Mom picked me up and I snuggled right into her arms like I belonged there and promptly fell asleep – yes I chose her – I knew she was special. Dad was busy cuddling a baby dachshund and I wasn’t to sure about him. Mom and Dad came to visit me every week until I was ready to go home with them and Mom gave me my name straight away and my breeder called me that all the time so by time I was ready to go home I already knew it. Here I am tasting my first ever bacon beggin strip – I wasn’t sure what to do with it so I ran around the garden until I finally figured out how tasty is was.

Denny – I was already 11 weeks old when I met Mom and Dad for the first time – I was very tiny for my age and hadn’t had a lot of human contact so I was pretty timid but Mom snuggled me close and whispered lots of soft words in my ears. I took me a few weeks to get use to them and Mom was my favorite for sure – but eventually I knew they would protect me and care for me no matter what. It took nearly a year before I went to Dad for my first cuddle and since then he is my now my ‘go to guy’ for snuggles’

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Reilly – I just knew right from the first time I met my Mom that this was the person who would love me forever. When we arrived at my new home there was a huge big fenced garden for me to run in and so many places to sniff. Mom had a basket full of toys for me and she would take me everywhere with her. I especially knew it was my home though when the gardener left the gate open after mowing the lawn and Mom went and told them off because I could of gotten lost.

Denny – I took me a long time to get use to being in a house and having people around but I knew it was forever home when Mom bought me a bed and put it next to her bed – it was my special spot and every night I would curl up in and felt safe and loved.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Reilly – the very first night I was home with Mom and Dad – they had set up a little play pen for me to keep me safe. Mom was just going up the stairs when she heard me yelp she turned around in a panic wondering why I was crying and lost her footing and fell backwards down the stairs, She dislocated her shoulder and got badly bruised and even though she was in a lot of pain she called to dad and made him check on me first. There was nothing wrong – I just didn’t want to be alone in the play pen. Mom had to go to the hospital to get a pain shot and x-ray (she put her shoulder back in place herself) and even though she had her arm in a sling she still managed to drive from Minnesota to Nebraska the next day to where we were going to live.

Denny – My oh oh moment was when I discovered the joys of digging in flower pots and decided one day to help Mom by emptying them all out on the deck. Mom wasn’t angry as it was the end of winter and Mom was going to empty the pots out anyway to get them ready for some spring planting. What was amazing is I didn’t get dirty at all 🙂

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Reilly and Denny – without a doubt it is Mom she is a easy mark for that sad eye look or that sad little whimper- we have her well trained to give us our meals at a certain time – to go walkies when we rattle our leads. Mom also NEVER eats all her food so sometimes she will let us have a little bit of her meal – Dad is tough – he never shares.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That they don’t think we understand when they spell something instead of saying it.  Trust us – we know what V-E-T means and B-A-T-H means.

 

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

Bashful Update

Oh my friends – it was a quick weekend here at the Hotel Thompson.  There were lots of things going on and lots of stuff to get done before the big guy comes on Christmas day.  Mom/dad ran some errands and little Houdini had a vet’s visit – he’s good no worries there.  He just had some yearly shots so he was a little needy.  With all of that said, we had a no electronics kind of weekend.

But I’m here to tell you my friends, I’ve got updates on my Bashful.  You know he is visiting Denny and Reilly from Cowspotdog in Florida.  He is having a BLAST.  OMP – wait until you see some of his antics, pictures and what he is doing and who he is doing it with – squeals!

Be sure to go visit my friends Denny and Reilly and let them know Bacon sent you 🙂

Who is this glamorous looking woman Bashful is hanging out with?  Look at her markings – it almost looks like she is wearing lace – how beautiful is that my friends?  And those eyes – I can just see her batting those eyes at Bashful – and look at Bashful’s grin!

So who is she?  What are they doing together?  Where exactly are they?  All good questions.  Go check with Denny and Reilly to find out 🙂

.

Don’t you wish you were laying in the sun with these two enjoying the rays and feeling the sand on your body?  Do they not bring to your mind immediate relaxation?  I have to admit, this little oinker would absolutely LOVE to be there right now.  Go visit Denny and Reilly for the full story and what the two did after soaking up some sun.

Do You Know Where Bashful Is?

Squeals with piggy delight!!  Bashful has landed and is at his new destination for the rest of the holidays.  Where is it you ask?  Squeals!  He is visiting my sweet friends Denny and Reilly with Cowspotdog in Florida.  You must visit them and check out what their mom made Bashful.  You will definitely go aaww.  And did you know that Denny and Reilly’s mom is originally from Australia?  And we all know what a sweet spot Bashful has in his heart for Australia. – Remember when you visit, introduce yourself and tell them Bacon sent you 🙂

Shopping Around the World

My friend Fozzie and I have scheduled a group posting today of Shopping Around the World.   We thought it would be interesting to see the differences between different countries all over.Here are our prices for the following from our area – Georgia USA:

 

  • Price of cable services for one month – what do you get for that price?  Right now we pay right around $40.00 a month for cable services.  This includes channels such as local, SyFy, Food Network, multiple Cartoon channels – yay me! – Investigative Discovery, Encore movie channels.  In all, I think there is 250 channels.  And we have On Demand where we can go back and watch shows.  I ❤ this!  
  • A 12 ounce box (360 grams) of Cornflakes.  $3.29 – why are cereal prices so high? 
  • A 15 ounce package (432 grams) of Oreos or other cream filled cookies.  $3.99 but sometimes we can get them on sale for 2 packages for $5.00
  • A 7 ounce bag (225 grams) of Lay’s potato chips.  Lay’s are expensive 😦  And trust me, I do ❤ me some Lays. 7 ounce bags run around $2.00 or more a bag.  
  • 1 pound of real butter.  $4.00 :0  
  • A 6 ounce can of peanuts.  Mom buys the Kroger brand for $2.19 a can

Thanks so much to my friends Reilly and Denny for suggesting these items this month.

If you have some items that you want to get on the list, email me at baconthompson@gmail.com

Hope you had fun!!
