Paw Time with Houdini


Barks with puppy laughter.  I bet that picture took you off guard.

Not that I’m eating from a bowl in dad’s hands – nope.  Not that what I’m eating looks like popcorn – nope.  I mean heck there’s even my little dog in that picture – nope.  I bet that picture took you off guard because… wait for it… I’m naked!

That’s right – no clothes – what the cream cheese!  Mom was taking naked pictures of me.  Can you believe that?  I will be ruined.  This picture will now be all over the internet.  My silver is showing.  What is that woman trying to do to my reputation.

Until I can get this straightened up, please forgive me my friends.  I need to find a way now to erase this from computer land and the internet.  I gotta a lot of work to do.  Hope you have a fantastic weekend.  I leave you now with Jokes with Daddy.  Enjoy!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Charlee and Chaplin

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: We wrote a haiku about ourselves! Charlee and Chaplin
Two-toned cats in black and white
The Hipster Kitties

Age:  Charlee: We are exactly fifteen weeks old as of June 7th.
Chaplin: Yes, we’re still babies.
Charlee: Which I think means that nothing we do goes on our permanent records.
Chaplin: Yes, that’s right, Charlee. I looked it up.

Location:  Charlee: The San Diego area.
Chaplin: I thought it was Oceanside.
Charlee: Same thing.
Chaplin: Oh, okay.

Web/Blog Page:  Charlee: We wrote a free verse about it!
You can find us on Dennis’s Diary of Destruction
Which is at http://www.dennisthevizsla.com.
Although we should confess

That we haven’t seen Dennis destroy anything
Yet
Except for some scattered papers
That probably had it coming.

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Chaplin: It was when we were being kept in a big crate in the foster care office at the shelter.
Charlee: We were very young and very small.
Chaplin: They kept wanting to hold us.
Charlee: I think my first thought was, “Put me down.”
Chaplin: My first thought was “Why are these people recording our meows? Is it because they know we’re a great poetry team?”
Charlee: Later, of course, we found out it was because they were playing the meows back for Dennis at his meal times, to prepare him for our arrival.
Chaplin: I don’t think he appreciated the poems.
Charlee: I think he appreciated the meals, though.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Chaplin: Probably when they put up not one cat tree for us, but two cat trees.
Charlee: And a cat hammock with a scratching post!
Chaplin: You don’t commit to that kind of infrastructure for kittens who aren’t sticking around.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  Chaplin: Probably when I let Dennis start sniffing me. Once you have dog breath all over you, I’m told, you can never get elected Cat President.
Charlee: Being Cat President is overrated.
Chaplin: How do you know that?
Charlee: Next question please.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Chaplin: Totally mom, because she likes to lie on the couch under a fleecy blanket and I like to make biscuits on the fleecy blanket, so I spend a lot of time on her lap purring and kneading dough.
Charlee: Totally dad. And I didn’t even have to do anything, either, except have a mustache.
Chaplin: You do things. I’ve seen you purring and rolling around on your back asking for belly scratches.
Charlee: That’s so he can see that my mustache looks like a three-leaf clover when I’m upside-down. Extra cuteness points.
Chaplin: Brilliant.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Charlee: Mom and dad think we’re just hipster poet kittens, but we’re really hipster poet performance artist kittens.
Chaplin: We keep doing interpretive dance for them, but they don’t get it.
Charlee: Yes, they just think we’re just wrestling.
Chaplin: We wrote a limerick about it.

There once were two cats who were dancing,
Pirouetting and mewing and prancing.
The humans kept saying,
“Oh how cute, they’re playing!”
And missed all the choreographing.




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

Shopping Around the World – Reminder

Hello sweet friends ❤  Did you miss Shopping Around the World in May?  I know we did – snorts.  I tell you things have been going on weird here at the Hotel Thompson for the past couple of months – but I digress.  That’s another posting for another day.

Shopping Around the World is back for June and with a new badge courtesy of Phenny’s dad. (Huge shout out and thanks to them ❤ )  Please feel free to share and use this badge on your blog postings for Shopping Around the World.

For June we are going to focus on something that you have cooked lately that you absolutely went bonkers for and everyone enjoyed.  This could be anything – even a cheese cracker.  Just make it the best cheese cracker you ever had and post prices… and pictures are awesome.  That gives us something to drool on while we read your recipe.

So my friends.  That’s your assignment for June.  We will all post Shopping Around the World on Friday, June 30th.  Remember to link back to my blog so everyone can check your postings out.   Can’t wait to read your recipe!

Travels in the South

Anyone for some nachos?  Welcome my friends to another posting of Travels in the South.  Today we went a little Mexican.  Okay maybe I should say mom/dad went a BIG time Mexican.  They decided one night to go out and split some Fajita Nachos and maybe – and I stretch maybe – a Margarita might have been involved – snorts with piggy laughter.  And I say share because look at that plate!

It had peppers, onions, chicken, steak, shrimp and cheese slathered all over it.  It was messy and so delicious!  And hey splitting it between mom/dad meant half of the calories, right?  Don’t you love the way those two parents of mine have changed their way in thinking about food?  You don’t have to give up the things you love, just split them in half with someone else you love ❤

Texts from Bacon

What can I say?  Sometimes this sweet Bacon has an alternative side that comes out that mom refers to as deviled ham.  I know – those days are tough.  Last night, we went to a local carnival.  Mom called before hand to ask if I could go.  They were all for it.  Me, mom and dad went and was having a really good time.  I’ve never been petted so much in my entire life!  Things got a little carried away though towards the end and deviled ham came out.  Shuffles hooves and puts head down – it happened and I can’t take it back.  So you know when we got back to the Hotel Thompson, I had to serve time for the crime.  Here’s a text between me and mom.  My texts are in blue and moms are in gray.  Enjoy my friends.

Happy Father’s Day Daddy!

Today, June 18th, is just a special day – it’s Father’s Day!!  I have to say happy Father’s Day to my biological father, Champ.   If it wasn’t for him and my mom, Bertha, I wouldn’t be here with my adopted family at the Hotel Thompson.  So Happy Father’s Day Champ!

And then, my adopted dad.  What can I say?  He adopted me when I was a small tyke – I could barely walk!  I knew nothing about life at a mere three weeks.  I was still on formula and had to be taught everything.  Do you know to this day, dad takes care of me during the day?  While mom is at the worky place, dad makes sure that I get all of my nutritional food and that I’m happy until mom gets home.  Isn’t that great?  I guess you could call him my pigdad.

So, for today dad don’t worry about anything.  Me, the purr things and mom will handle it at the Hotel Thompson.  Heck, mom even said something about fixing your favorite food… and that I might get a taste.  Hey – it’s a win win situation today!

Enough of the seriousness though.  Let’s talk Bacon – oink chuckles.  Just for today dad, you can sit back on the sofa, enjoy your television and have the remote.  You don’t have to utter one word… especially the phrases I’ve heard you say around here.  Oh, you look shocked.  Let me remind you of some of the phrases – PLOL (Pig Laughing Out Loud).  How many have you heard from your fathers?

Just because I love you doesn’t mean I have to like everything you do.

Because I’m the Dad, that’s why!

I brought you into this world, and I can take you out! 

I’m a Dad, I know everything.

The sooner you learn to stand on your own two feet, the better off you’ll be. – which never makes sense to me since I have four feet – shakes piggy head

That’s just the way life is, son.

You make a better door than a window!

Were you born In a Barn?  well, yes I was

Do you think money grows on trees?  technically, it does 🙂

I haven’t developed gray hairs for nothing!

You are too young to understand this.

And my favorite all time one liner from dad –

Go ask your mother….. perfect… I will 🙂

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 ❤
