Paw Time with Houdini


Oh friends – come closer.  See that toy mom is holding in her little paw?  It will be the death of me.  Mom/dad bought it for me last weekend because I’ve been a good boy and they thought I needed another outlook for all of my energy besides chasing Hemi.  I thought chasing Hemi was just fine but I was wrong.  This toy.. this toy is “it”.

You see it’s like a pyramid and then there’s that amazing tennis ball inside of the pyramid.  I have tried *everything* – and I mean *everything* – to get that ball out of the pyramid.  It mocks me.  I can lick it.  I can put my snout in between the slats and sniff it – even touch it.  But I.can’t.not.get.the.ball.out!

I spent all day the first day walking around with this contraption in my mouth, barking at it, chasing it and demanding for that ball to GET OUT.  But it wouldn’t.  Mom says that the ball is working.  I don’t understand that.  The ball is NOT working.  It won’t get out and play with me.   You just don’t understand the frustration.  Mom even took a video of me with said ball.  You will even see my ‘cave’ under the chaise. I made this cave by pulling the blankie down and moving the ottoman closer.  It’s my private place.  We all need one of those, right?  I hope you see how difficult that ball is being.

Afterwards, make sure you check out Jokes with Daddy.  It’s a classic today.  Thanks my friends!

Do a Grouch a Favor Day

.

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”

.

February 16th is Do a Grouch a Favor Day.  Do it today and make the world a better place!

Everyone has been a grouch at some point in their lives.  Some people are occasionally grouchy while others maintain that grouchy attitude all of the time.  You know who they are.  Sometimes people get grouchy because they are tired, had a bad day and the weather outside is bad.  It doesn’t take much sometimes to put people in a grouchy mood.

Today your goal is to look around for someone that is in a grouchy mood.  Do them a favor that will cheer them up.  Hug them.  Lick them.  Be nice to them.  Bring them the paper.  Buy them a coffee or a doughnut.  You know – do something nice for them to see if you can see a smile on their face.  You can do it.  I know you can!

Beware of the Crocs… and Gators

 What?  Looks innocent – not the kind of “croc” you expected?  Snorts with piggy laughter!

Now that we have the funny out of the way, I want to share with you something I saw on the news.  Have you ever heard of an orange colored alligator?  This picture gets credit to Leroy Burnell/The Post & Courier AP.  It was taken at a retention pond in Hanahan, South Carolina on February 9, 2017.  The gator was on the bank sunning himself.  Strange looking huh?  They are thinking that coloring is due from algae or a pollutant in the water but they are not sure.  I guess Mr. Gator would be all ready for Halloween, you think?  Of course there are some peeps calling Mr. Gator Trumpigator which is kind of a funny in way.  What do you think?

Travels in the South

Hello sweet friends.  How was your Valentine’s Day yesterday?  In honor of the sweetest day of the year, mom/dad shared a little love yesterday as well.  They went out to dinner and afterwards enjoyed this delicious concoction.  And hey, splitting a dessert means half of the calories, right?  But who’s counting calories on Valentine’s Day – snorts.

This lovely creation is called a Margarita Cheesecake which is seasonal special at a local steakhouse called Logan’s Roadhouse.  Now, it’s like other cheesecakes made with cream cheese but it has Logan’s signature margarita blend on the graham cracker crust.  And don’t forget about the sliced strawberries all over the place.  Mom said it was – what was the phrase she used – delightful to the fullest!

So, if you are near a Logan’s Roadhouse, make sure you check it out for this wonderful dessert.  You won’t be disappointed.

Will You Be My Valenpig?

Roses are red – Violets are blue – My heart has led – My love to you.

Will you be my valenpig?

Today is also an anniversary of sorts for my mom/dad.  Dad actually popped the question to mom years ago by asking her to marry him on Valentine’s Day.  So today has a special place in their hearts.  I think they are actually going out on a date night tonight to celebrate.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!  And I have to ask my friends.

Will you be my Valenpig? XOXO – Bacon

P.S.  Let me tell you a little diddy I read on some mythology lore.  According to Greek mythology, humans were born with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces.  Fearing their power, Zeus split and separated them into two parts.  He then condemned the two parts to spend the rest of their lives in search of their other halves.  Knowing this, it makes sense that humans are looking for their other half in love.  I like to think mom/dad found theirs.

Paw Time with Houdini


Oh dear friends – I can’t keep my head up.  I’ve been tired all week.  I watched the Puppy Bowl last Sunday and got really into the game.   I barked.  I ran around the front room.  I pounced.  I played.  I wore myself out.  Heck, let alone when mom/dad’s Super Bowl came on television, I could barely keep my head up.  I admit it.  This is me – one tired little puppy.  Daddy said I didn’t miss much from his game and that he had more enjoyment watching me with the Puppy Bowl.  It was fun for sure.

Yawns… I’ve gotta go take another nap.  I’m so tired still!  Enjoy Jokes with Daddy my friends.

Boy Scout Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”

. .

.

February 8th is Boy Scout Day that celebrates the birthday of Scouting in America. On February 8, 1910, Chicago publisher William Dickson Boyce filed incorporation papers in the District of Columbia to create the Boy Scouts of America.

Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts offer a tremendous valuable program of life skills and values for millions of boys. It has been popular since Lord Baden-Powell founded the Boy Scouts in the early 1900′s in Great Britain. The top award of Eagle Scout is an accomplishment that reaps recognition, rewards and benefits for a young man throughout his life.
