Paw Time with Houdini
Hello my sweet friends. I hope that your week has gone by great. Just think – tomorrow starts the weekend and for us anipals that means extra treats and snuggle times. Of course as you can see from this picture, I’ve already started some loving time with daddy. He knows just the right spots to rub my back. I’ll stand still and straight to get that attention for sure.
Do you have anything planned for this weekend? I’m hoping that maybe I can persuade mom to walk me in my stroller to get some fresh air. But really I’m doing it for mom. That’s it. You see she’s trying to walk more and what kind of anipal would I be not to help her with that. You agree, right? So other than walking my mom and getting snuggles from her, my calendar is open ladies. Call me 🙂
And don’t fear my friends. I would never forget Jokes from Daddy – insert evil barks – enjoy!
Spotlight Thursday – Meet Speedy
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!
Web/Blog Page: Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny on blogger and Speedy the Cheeky Rex Rabbit on wordpress for my followers there (Be sure to pop over and say hey – remember to tell Speedy that Bacon and Houdini sent you.)
What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? Daddy petted me in the hutch I was in and Mummy was petting another rex in the same hutch. That is when Daddy picked me up for a cuddle which was very nice but he seemed sad. He then passed me to mummy for a cuddle and I knew she was like home. She smelled of home so I started to tooth purr which she commented on to Daddy. Hehehehe –
think Mummy fell in love with me in that moment.
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? I knew the moment they came back for me after they put me back in my hutch. They put me back and left. I poked my head out of the hutch and said don’t leave me but they left. But then the most amazing thing happened a little while later. They came back for me. Mummy held me giving me a big cuddle and that was the moment I knew I was home safe in her arms, After that they popped me into a carrier and drove me home.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? hehehe – that would be when I escaped from the kitchen and found my way into the lounge. hehehe I bit through Daddy’s Speaker Cables from his surround sound…hehehe oops!
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Hehehe – that’s easy. While Daddy like’s to give me cuddles and sneak me extra treats, its Mummy who will do anything for me and spends the most time with me, playing, cuddles. And she doesn’t shout at me when I’m naughty. She just laughs and scolds me just a little bit…hehehe.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? A lot of humans think I am stupid with no character. They are completely surprised that I love to play and have fun adventures and that I am very friendly. Most humans think that about all rabbits – that we just sit in our hutches not doing very much and just eat food all day long but they are so wrong. Take us buns out of that environment and give us space to run and play and you get to see how much fun we can be and how affectionate we can be too!
7 Weeks of Weird
Okay I’m late to the band wagon. What can I say. I need to get out more, meet and greet more people. That’s my goal for the rest of the year. Let people know that moi – a mere pig – writes a blog. Today, I noticed some of my friends with 7 weeks of weird in their blog. I went to the source and made a new friend here. I hope she accepts my friendship. This is the neatest idea of 7 weeks of weird well since sliced bread… and peanut butter and jelly. Who can get enough of that combination? Snorts – now I’m hungry. Great.
In today’s 7 weeks of weird, it focuses on “What is the weirdest habit/routine you have?” I can do this. My weirdest habit. Don’t laugh okay. This is something that I’ve never spoke of before. When I eat my food out of my bowl. I have to walk around my bowl while eating in a clockwise fashion. I can’t just stop and eat. I have to keep moving around my bowl. It’s not like the food changes. I just like the action of moving. I think deep down I believe if I keep moving around the bowl (1) that’s exercise and I’m burning calories so I can eat more and (2) the bowl might sprout more food. You never know – snorts.
My weird routine? This one took some thinking. I’ve come up with one that is intriguing and believe it or not, daddy helped me come up with it. In the evenings after dinner, I like to sit on the sofa and cuddle with mommy. I don’t want any help getting on the sofa. I’m a big pig now. I can do it myself. BUT, I can only get up on the left side of mommy – never the right and never jump directly in her lap. It has to be to the left and *I* have to do it myself. If she helps, I will squeal and have a piggy tantrum so loud in protest that the house will shake here at the Hotel Thompson.
So, I hope these are two weird things that you didn’t know about moi – your friendly little pig with a blog. I’m off to take a nap now. Catch you on the downside.
A Note to Winter –
We are both adults. But, I guess you didn’t hear me. I didn’t want this to hurt. But, I met someone else. Her name is Summer. She seems to like me, is very kind and doesn’t judge me. You used to be the same. We’d cuddle up before a fire, laugh at the world and still walk hand and hand outside. But, you’ve changed. You’ve frozen me out. You’ve given me the cold shoulder. You’ve taken the power from me. You make me look foolish now, shivering in the ice. It’s over between us Winter. Goodbye. You are dead to me.
I Want My Mommy Kind of Day
Yesterday was a holiday and thank goodness my mommy was home. I was feeling a bit blah, you know a little under the weather. I stayed close to mommy all day. As long as she was beside me or in eye distance, I was good. If she wasn’t, I cried for her and went looking for my mommy. I was very needy.
I’m not sure if it was a cold front coming in or what. Weather changes do make me feel kind of icky. When it gets really, REALLY cold, I just want to ‘hibernate’ and sleep. This was kind of different though. I couldn’t put my snout on it. I just knew I felt icky. Whatever it was, I didn’t feel good and mommy knew it.
Of course it wasn’t anything that would stop me from eating. It takes a lot to get between me and my food. Figure that huh? I just felt icky enough to stay close to mom, stay cuddly and warm and be loved on all day. Something like this picture.
Mommy fixed me a little bed on the couch right beside her. She would pet me and talk quietly to me throughout the day. She even called me my pet name… don’t tell anyone okay. Ssshhh – she likes to call me “Pookie”. I’m not sure why but it was cute so I let her do it.
She even gave me one of her famous piggy massages. They feel so wonderful! Especially when she uses my baby lotion, massages all of my fat rolls and then wraps me in my bankie for cuddles. AAAAWWW – that’s the best!
I was all about mommy. Daddy came over and tried to comfort me. It’s not that I don’t appreciate it from daddy but I just wanted my mommy. I knew that she would make me all better.
Mommy went back to work today. She left strict instructions with daddy to take care of me. I know he will and I’ll be all over daddy since mommy is not here. You know how that works.
Hope everyone had a wonderfully long weekend. Hogs and Kisses – Bacon
