Paw Time with Houdini

Hello my friends – barks!  This week has been a little hectic here at the Hotel Thompson.  We’ve been trying to get mommy back up and going on her feet.  She is walking somewhat faster than a turtle now and her catch in her giddy up seems to be subsiding some.  She still has mean old Mr Arthur nipping at her right hip but hopefully soon she can slap him off.  Mom has also been getting Bacon ready for his camp – he leaves tomorrow for seven entire days.  Mommy is standing her ground but between you and me, I saw her crying a bit the other day.  I think she is going to miss that pig more than she is letting on.  And to tell you the truth, I think us anipals will too.

This week we also went and spent some time with Nana at her house for a visit.  All mommy had to do was tell me, “Let’s go see Nana, Tinkerbelle and Dingo.”  I was at the front door before mom/dad – barks!  Daddy was trying to catch some sleep while we were visiting.  Personally, I think he got comfortable and cool and was out like a light.  But don’t worry, Tinkerbelle checked on him to make sure he was still breathing – BOL.  And Dingo crawled up beside him for some quick zzz’s too.  I’m glad to report that Dingo is growing and getting bigger.  He still seems all legs to me – but I guess that’s because I’m so small.

While Dingo and Tinkerbelle were checking out daddy, I was getting my Nana time.  Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

Paw Time with Houdini

Welcome my friends to another great week of Paw Time with Houdini.  This week has been awesome – isn’t every week?  Of course, it’s been busy too.  Last weekend, we had a family meeting and Bacon was advised that he is going to summer camp.  Now I thought it would be cool but Bacon is so against it.  That oinker really doesn’t like nature does he?  He has tried every excuse and had one-on-one meetings with mom and dad trying to wiggle himself out of the situation.  But it’s not going to work.  Mom is insisting on him going to Summer Camp – seven entire days in nature.

This week also ended Shark Week.  And you knew it was coming, didn’t you.  Mom was going to dress me up like Shark Bait.  I knew it.  So finally, she got my costume out and put it on me.  Rolls doggy eyes.  I let her get one somewhat potential photograph.  I just wasn’t feeling it.  That outfit was H.O.T.  Did I mention we are in the south here and it is H.O.T.?  It is.  So she got a quicky picture.

There is a hat that actually comes up over my head and it has little slits for my ears to poke through.  She had me all fixed up for like five seconds when she put me down in the ‘waters’ of the hardwood floor – Barks!

But anyway, she got a little picture to submit to Discover for Shark Week.  Don’t I look mean and ready to eat you up?!  Okay maybe not.

.

I also had Doggy Daycare this week and got to go up to Nana’s house.  Bacon tried really hard and persuaded me to talk to Nana about his situation.   He doesn’t believe me but even Nana said that it would be good for him to be away from mom/dad and be with others for Summer Camp.  They are really pushing this.  I’ll be honest with you.  I kind of feel sorry for the guy a bit.

But back to doggy daycare.  This was the day that I go to Nana’s.  Me and the other pooches at Nana’s get the works.  Danielle the groomers comes out to the house and gives us all special time in her R.V.  We get baths, massages, blow drys, cuts, nails – the entire works!  Then I get to hang out with Nana, Tinkerbelle and Dingo until mom picks me up when she gets off of the worky place.  Also me being at doggy daycare, this gives daddy his day to get the big stuff done at the Hotel Thompson.  You know, washing the bed sheets, changing the beds, getting dinner ready, mopping.  Things he supposedly can’t do with me under his feet.  I don’t know what he means by that.  I’m just there helping.. right?

Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

Houdini’s Party

  It’s hard to believe but Little Man Houdini is officially ONE YEAR OLD today!!  Can you believe that?  Mom/dad brought him here to the Hotel Thompson to his forever home 9 months ago – he was a mere three months and only weighed 3 pounds.  This past weekend, mom/dad threw him a surprise birthday party with his doggy friends up at Nana’s.  We will be having a party for him here at the Hotel Thompson with all of us tonight.

When he first got to Nana’s, mom changed him into his outfit to the left – isn’t it adorable?  Oh my goodness – squeals.  You see on Saturday, mom/dad went birthday shopping for the little guy at our local pet store.  Houdini usually goes but couldn’t go this time so I went.  Mom/dad didn’t want him to see all of his gifts for his birthday.  And hey, I was in the car when they were doing their test on Albert vs Tank.  I love the pet store – so many friendly peeps.  Now I know why Houdini likes to go!  So mom got Houdini all dressed up and then dressed up Tinkerbell and Dingo for the birthday bash.

Aren’t these two just the cutest?  Dingo is on the left.  He tolerated his hat only because he kept saying, “There will be ice cream, right?”  Snorts – smart dog isn’t he?

Tinkerbell is on the right.  She really liked her hat.  She just pranced around the house wearing it… and looking for ice cream too.  But you gotta admit, for 14 years old Tinkerbell looks like 4, doesn’t she?  So cute and adorable.

And you are probably asking about the ice cream.  Did you know that there is an ice cream made specifically for dogs called Frosty Paws?  There is and you can buy it at your local grocery store.  It doesn’t have any added sugar and this particular box had peanut butter flavor.

And it’s good. How do I know?  Snorts – good question.  You see Nana told me.  When she served the ice cream, it was really hard.  Nana put it in the microwave for a few minutes to soften it.  Without thinking about it, she put her finger in it and tasted it to see if it was too warm.  Doh!  That’s when she realized she was eating doggy ice cream – snorts with piggy laughter. That’s our Nana.  But she said it was delicious. How delicious?  Let me show you some pics of the great ice cream eating fest.

This is Houdini blowing out his candle to the right.  He was making a wish first – for lots and LOTS of toys and food.

Then the picture to the left is Houdini being spoon fed by Nana.  Rolls piggy eyes.  Can you imagine that?  The little guy is getting SPOON FED for his birthday.

Of course, Nana put some on a plate too and he did eat some off of a plate with Dingo and Tinkerbell.

And don’t worry – Nana fixed Houdini a cake of sorts too.  This is it in the picture to the right – cute huh?  It had lots of food – Houdini got the pot of gold and got an entire box of Ceasar wet food.  He eats a little of that every morning with his dry food.  Talk about rotten huh?  Well you haven’t seen anything.  Look at all of the toys he got in his toy chest of a box.

He got a rope for tug a war from me.  See I was thinking about the little guy 🙂  The cats gave him the cow looking thing in the middle.  You stick an empty water bottle up it for the crunchy crinkly sound that Houdini loves.  And Tinkerbell and Dingo got him the ball inside of a ball on the far left.  So cool!

As you can see, Houdini had a great party at Nana’s.  Tonight we are having a quite dinner and fun time with him here at the Hotel Thompson.  But all of us anipals here have to tell the little guy –

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

And a special thank you to my brother Easy for sending the little guy his first birthday card.  Thanks brother – he loved it!

Paw Time with Houdini

 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!

A New Addition

  Oh SQUEALS!  We have a new addition in the family.  Well, not my family here at the Hotel Thompson but at Nana’s up the street.  On Saturday, Nana asked mommy to take her to McDonough, Georgia where they were having Dog Days.  Here they had all kinds of things for dogs, supplies, food, crafts and adoptions.  Nana was just going to “look” but we ALL know how that turns out, right?

Well to the left is a picture of Nana who met this dog.  This dog is shepherd mixed.  He was shy but very friendly and seemed to hit it off with Nana right away.  In fact, Nana got down to his level and talked to him for a while stroking his back.  After a bit, Nana got up and walked across the area.  The doggy kept looking at her and wanted to go after her.  Can you believe that?  I think they had an instant connection.

Nana filled out the paperwork and decided that he needed to come home with her to his forever home. ❤

But first, we needed to stop by a pet store to buy some supplies.  I think the cutie looked so at home in these pictures I got off of mom’s phone.  Look at him in all his glory!  Mommy said he sat in the buggy, didn’t try to jump out, didn’t bark and just looked so darn happy.  He even took a cookie from the cashier gently and ate it.  Neato huh?

Now for the name.  Nana decided on calling him Dingo – so cute!  He is only 4 months old and has a LOT of puppy in him.  He was rescued with his brothers when they were born at the Humane Society.  As soon as he got to Nana’s, he followed her around the house… like a puppy!  He went outside in her fenced backyard and drunk water like there was no tomorrow.  In fact, Nana says he LOVES water.  And Dingo is getting along great with Nana’s other doggy – Tinky!

So my friends, let’s welcome Dingo to our family!
