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!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – Hey there.  Our names are Chill and Squeal.  We are pleased to meet you piggy.  We would love to meet you one day and have some fun. It sounds like we have a lot in common – play, eating, hiding, eating, rolling around, eating, hibernating until Spring, eating.  See, don’t you think?  And don’t worry about Chill’s sharp teeth in his picture.  He doesn’t use them much.  Signed Chill and Squeal

Dear Chill and Squeal – Well don’t ya’ll look like hospitality charm.  I say if you are in the area, check me out.  I’m all for new adventures – especially when eating is involved.  Perhaps we can give the purr thing here Hemi a run for their money.  Just sayin’.  And what cute little sweaters – adorable!


Dear Bacon -ssshh – don’t say a word.  We are playing hide and go seek from the purr things.  I think we found *the* spot.  We have been under here for almost two hours and the purr things haven’t even been in the room.  Awesome huh?  Signed Hide and Seek

Dear Hide and Seek –  Playing with the purr things, huh?  First, let me commend you on your hiding spot.  It is most excellent indeed.  Secondly, let me tell you something about pesky purr things.  They put you up to hide – are you ready for this? – to get rid of you.  And to think, they succeeded for two hours in not having you around.  My friends, this calls for payback.  Go hide their kitty boxes.  I dare say *that* would be the ultimate pay back in hide and seek.  And maybe that would teach them not to mess with the dogs!.


Dear Bacon – I just had *that* surgery where the aliens came down and kidnapped my best friends if you know what I mean.  The only great thing is they sent me home all drugged… which I highly recommend.  Thank goodness I read about this procedure from when your Houdini had his so I knew what to expect from the alien invasion.  Dude, those little green guys can be vicious can’t they?  Signed I’m a Happy Dog

Dear I’m a Happy Dog –  Happy huh?  I know that’s the medicine talking pal.  Just think in a couple of days, the aliens will have erased all of this pain and discomfort from your mind.  Until then, enjoy the drugs 🙂

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.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – This is my big brother Hercules.  Every day, he lets me sleep on him.  He protects me and keeps me warm.  Do you have a Hercules at the Hotel Thompson that does that for you?  Signed Tiny the Piggy

Dear Tiny the Piggy – That is totally awesome that you have a friend like Hercules.  I don’t have a Hercules but mommy does kind of do for me what he does for you.  It’s totally awesome to have that kind of relationship.  Take care of you my little porky friend!


Dear Bacon – I feel pretty – so pretty.  Sometimes you just have to stop in life, lay down and smell the daisies.  These are some of my favorite moments.  You ever get to do this?  Signed Pondering Bear

Dear Pondering Bear – You’ve got a point there my friend.  Life does go really fast sometimes and you need to stop and smell the daises… which happen to be my mom’s favorites.  It’s good to take a breath and remember what you have and who you are. I say continue on being pretty my friend.  Enjoy the smell of the daisy and the heat from the sun.


Dear Bacon – All aboard the school bus – woof.  My humans found this party bus outfit and got it for me.  I’m kind of digging it.  You want to come aboard the party bus little guy?  Signed Corki in Charge

Dear Corki in Charge – That is totally awesome!  I absolutely love the little friends you have in your bus.  It does look like a party bus too.  Beep-beep Let’s have some fun my friend.  Everyone sing with me now, “The wheels on the bus go round and round.  The people on the bus go up and down.  The driver on the bus says  move on back.”


Dear Bacon -Can you believe that the humans make me carry my own back pack when we go out for day trips?  Why do I have to carry my diaper bag?  Can’t they?  Signed Tyke

Dear Tyke – Aaww – you really cute with your back pack my friend.  It looks like it was just made for you.  There’s no worries on carrying it.  Sometimes my mom makes me carry my pack with me as well.  I look at it as helping her out.  Thing of it that way as to what a big bunny you are now to be helping out the humans.  That’s awesome!  And I’ll tell you something.  When I carry mine, mom usually puts me some treats in there.  That’s always a good thing!


❤ Remember friends – keep email me your pictures and letters for submissions.  Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. ❤

Paw Time with Houdini


Barks!  Hey friends.  How has your week been going?  Do you smell that??  It’s the weekend!  I can finally smell it and trust me, I won’t be kicking anything over on it.  I’m ready for some snuggles and laptime.  And I know mom/dad will both be home Sunday for the big game – the adult Super Bowl.  Of course, I will be catching the Puppy Bowl before that – can’t wait!!  So much fun is going to take place this weekend.

We got the new fridge just in time and it’s filled with goodies for the big day.  Will you be watching too?  Our Atlanta Falcons are playing right here from our backyard.  Mom bought me a jersey that I’m going to wear all day long – you know to support the team.  The goodies are being pre-planned and the electronics are being set.  I’m practicing my “Rise Up” look in this picture.  Can you see it?

Now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Can’t forget about pops today.  Enjoy and have an awesome weekend!!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – They say that after you have been with your humans for a while, you start looking like each other.  I think my human has rubbed off on my slightly. I’m cool with that.  You should see my human.  He says I’ve rubbed off on him as well  Signed Domguise

Dear Domguise – WOW.  That’s all I gotta say.  If this is what has happened to you, I can only imagine what your human looks like.  You do make the look though my friend.  Really, you do.  Take care.


Dear Bacon – Don’t let my size and cute looks fool you.  I’m one crazy and tough quack.  This is a deadly beak and I can take care of myself.  Whatcha looking at pig?  Signed Duck Off

Dear Duck Off – Hey, no problems here my friend.  I know when I’m up against a touch quacker.  I think it’s in your beady eyes that you mean business and will not put up with any crap from anyone.  Shivers – you scare me.  You really do.

 


Dear Bacon –  We just wanted you to see that you weren’t the only cute miniature.  Look at us – we rock this barn here at Old McDonald’s farm.  Signed Goat Twins

Dear Goat Twins – OMP (oh my pig!)  You two are the most adorable things I’ve seen in some time.  How does your humans not just pick you up and squeeze you?  Rock on my friends.  Ya’ll are totally cute as buttons!


Dear Bacon – I was on my walk the other day in the neighborhood minding my own business when I came across such a weird animal.  I’m not sure what it was.  It hopped and made little sounds.  We got nose to nose.  Do you know what this thing was?  Signed Boo

Dear Boo – It’s a rabbit!  Look at those ears and that adorable little cotton tail.  WOW – I have rabbits in my magical backyard but nothing like that fancy one.  So cute!

Paw Time with Houdini


Hello friends – BARKS!  I hope you have had a wonderful week.  I wanted to share a picture with you that my brother Bacon took of me a couple of weeks ago.  Mom laughs at it and says it’s cute while dad says it’s a huge lie.  What’s the lie?  I think mom has it right and my shirt tells you everything about me.  Right?  I mean I am the angel here at the Hotel Thompson.

This weekend we are resting up for the big game.  You know the Super Bowl.  Our Falcons right here from Atlanta will be playing.  Dad says it’s going to be an awesome game.  We can’t wait – Go Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the rest of the players.  Rise Up!

Now I leave you with Jokes from Daddy.  Hope you enjoy and have an awesome weekend friends.
