Paw Time with Houdini

Barks my dear friends – Welcome to Friday and my Paw Time with Houdini ❤

Mom was going through our baby book last weekend and came across the picture of me when I was a mere babe on the day that I adopted them.  I think I weighed right around 3-4 pounds at the time and I was around 5-6 months.  Wasn’t I small.  I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m small now.  But back in the day, I was really small.  Mom called me her little furball all the time.  I fit so snugly in Nana’s hands that day.  She held me all the way home.  aaww – those were the days.

I was so glad to be adopted to my forever home.  Sometimes it’s hard for me to remember that far back – three years ago.  Sometimes it feels like I’ve been here at the Hotel Thompson forever with my family.  I wouldn’t want it any other way for sure.

Hope you have a great weekend friends.  Now I leave you with Jokes from Daddy.  I hope you enjoy 🙂

Dear Bacon,

After reading your column last week about a cat that does yoga, I thought what the heck. My master has a room for meditation so I tried it.

This position is called my sitting dog pose. I really does work on calming your nerves. Thanks little pig. Signed Peaceful Pal

Dear Peaceful Pal,
I’m glad it worked out for you. You do look really grounded in that picture. Keep up the great work!

Dear Bacon – hiccup,

My humans tell me that – slurred – I’m spending too much time with my close friend Jose. Hiccup. They don’t complain about me catting around on the streets anymore. They just don’t like my choice of friends. Hiccup. What should I do. Can they pick my friends? Signed Frisky Fiesta

Dear Frisky Fiesta,
You do understand that your friend Jose is not really ‘real’, right? Instead of having a problem with your choice of ‘friends’, you’re humans might want to look into some classes for you… With TAA (Tomcats Alcohol Anonymous). Perhaps you should lose the hat, get a new friend and start listening to the humans. Take care my friend.

Dear Bacon,

Are baths really necessary? They freak me out. Signed Wet Purrbie

Dear Wet Purrbie,
I love baths. They’re very relaxing. Especially when mom puts bubbles in the water. Instead of fighting it, embrace it. My purr things here love the water. We all do. After a bath, we all get our hair done – that is heaven. Find your happy place during bath time and learn to enjoy it.

Dear Bacon,

Just wanted to let you know man that we enjoy your posts. Happy Friday. Signed Don’t Worry Be Happy

Dear Don’t Worry Be Happy,
Thanks so much. It takes support and encouragement from fans like you to keep it going. I appreciate that. Happy Friday back to you.

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks!  Hey sweet friends.  How has your week gone?  Here at the Hotel Thompson, we’ve had storms with icky rains and thunder all week.  It was like someone outside was throwing a huge bowling party for a while.  It doesn’t help that the Hotel Thompson sits in a little gully and there is a creek in the lower part of our backyard.  So when it thunders, it almost shakes our entire house.  At times, I feel like Toto in the Wizard of Oz.

Mom caught me in deep thought pondering about the rains yesterday.  I was watching the rain come down outside the window.  Every once in a while, my tail would wiggle in anticipation of the next BOOM of thunder.  One day, I will catch that boom and make it mine for all of the times it scares me.

Hopefully the rains will stop for this weekend and we can have a great time of snuggles and treats.  I hope you have a great one as well sweet friends.  Now I leave you with silly daddy in his Jokes with Daddy.  Enjoy!

Dear Bacon,
One of my characters is Harry Potter. I’ve read all of his books and seen all of the movies multiple times. Do you think it’s weird of me to dress like this? Signed Harry Trotter

Dear Harry Trotter,
We can have our idols too. I favor Spiderman AKA Spiderpig. It doesn’t hurt anyone so why not? You trot my man – you trot!

Dear Bacon,
The other kitties in the house make fun of me because I pray every night. They say animals can’t do this. I say they can. What do you think? You never know until you ask, right?  Signed Praying Puss

Dear Praying Puss,
If He moves in your heart to pray, go for it. Don’t let others judge or try to change you. Pray on my friend.

Dear Bacon,
I need help. I just can’t smile. This is my happy face. I’m a rough and tumble kind of pooch.  I take no crap.  I protect the house.  I protect the master.  I can’t afford to smile.  A dog has to do what a dog has to do.  Any suggestions?  Signed Canine Exposed.

Dear Canine Exposed,

I understand wanting to protect the house, master and what is rightfully yours.  I’m going to assume that you are single.  You need to relax the lips and teeth sometimes and let someone close.  You can smile and still be a strong dog in charge.  Just know when to show the teeth and when not to.  Good luck!

Hey Pig,

Two people can play this game.  I borrowed your computer earlier and surfed the net.  You’re not the only one with skills.  Just wait until you find out where I’ve been using your log in.  HEE HEE – Signed Hemi the Master

Dear Hemi the You Think You Are The Master,

Stay out of my room.  I’m going to tell mom on you.  Keep your claws off what is not yours.  Just remember – all is fair in love and war.  I have the proof in the picture that you were using my toys again.  Be afraid.


Dear Bacon,

We think you’re handsome!  We all take turns driving a pink Corvette.  You would look awesome in it.  If you are ever in Dallas, come see us.  Signed Charlies Bunnies

Dear Charlies Bunnies,

Thanks for the invite girls.  You rock!

 That’s not funny.  Really no it isn’t.  Mom/dad said I was being crabby over the weekend.  No I wasn’t.  Have they not learned yet that everything is about me and the world revolves around me?  I wasn’t crabby.  I was just trying to set them straight on their ways.  It’s me first.  It’s me that gets the attention.  It’s me that should get a toy every time they come back home.  It’s me that should get the doggy bag… I mean it is a DOGGY bag.  They lost their minds.  Really they did.

Mom said that since I was being crabby, I had to wear my crabby timeout shirt.  That’s not funny.  You can already guess, this is *not* my favorite shirt.

Dear Bacon,
Hello my friend.  I see you have a squirrel for a friend – thank you for liking our kind.  And, I know you secretly want to be a super pig hero and wear a cape.  Anytime you want, you can be my sidekick!  Signed Super Squirrel

Dear Super Squirrel,

You are so on!  I love the thoughts of being your sidekick.  I’ve been trying to convince mom for a while now that I need a cape.  You think you can help me a little and talk to her?

Dear Bacon,
I don’t think my friends have any clue whatsoever that I’m not really ‘one’ of them if you know what I mean.  I love this spy stuff – what about you?  Signed RacCat Bandit

Dear RacCat Bandit,

OMP (Oh my pig!)  That is so funny.  I fell off of the couch I was laughing so hard at that picture.  You are a little spy, aren’t you?  I can only imagine some of the information you have obtained with that disguise.  Maybe I need to get a mask for Halloween this year.  It would be a hoot!


20130601-001537.jpgDear Bacon,
It’s really not as hard as it looks.  I’ve been hanging out with some ladies all week and it’s been great fun!  My next step is to see if one of them will marry me.  Do you think I have a shot?  Signed RooFlam

Dear RooFlam,

Well, first of all I think you look great and you have some amazing talent for walking on sticks. I myself could never do that.  I just don’t have the balance.  Second off, you might want to rethink your mission.  It’s bound to come out eventually that you are not what you seem.


20130601-001548.jpgDear Bacon,
Sometimes I think a picture says a thousand words.  I think this is one of those occasions.  What do you think?  Signed Pom the Comedian

Dear Pom the Comedian,

Your picture is so wrong on so many different levels but I have to admit that I laughed… hard!  And, daddy laughed… hard!  Your poor brother – I’m not so sure he thought it was so funny.  All I gotta say, it was a good one but watch out.  I’m sure I’ll be getting a picture and email from your brother in the very near future!

This picture tells you absolutely everything you need to know about how hot it is here in the south of Georgia.  The heat index this week has been torturous.  Just moving it seems to make sweat and heat.  Even mom/dad says it is like living in a walk in sauna.  There are *those* peeps that say don’t complain because winter will be here soon.  Then there are *those* peeps like my mom/dad who absolutely love the winter.  Not the ice, snow close down school/businesses cold but the 60’s or 50’s temps outside.  Now that is weather my mom/dad LOVE.  As they peeps say, you can always put on clothes to stay warm but you can’t keep taking off clothes to get cool.  Well you could but dad said you might get arrested outdoors.  Hilarious huh?  Speaking of dad, now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Hope you have a great weekend sweet friends ❤
