Paw Time with Houdini

Hello my sweet friends.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  I know we did here at the Hotel Thompson.  Heck, it was just plain awesome having mom home from the worky place.  Did we eat too much here?  Barks!  Nah – do you believe that?  It was like an all day food paradise.  We had a blast!

And today – what do we have planned for today?  Aaww – I have plans for me – for Petsmart.  All of those toys – All of that food – All of those treats.

I think I can get mom to go… I think.  I’ve left so many notes laying around the Hotel Thompson.  I even hid all of my food and clothes to make her think that I have nothing left.  That way, she thinks I need everything STAT.

And the other anipals, they gave me their lists of what they want and need.  So, I’m good.  I think they are going to persuade mom/dad too of a much needed trip to our toy store… I mean Petsmart.  Wish us luck my friends.

Oh and to keep you held over, mom/dad did buy me a toy a couple of weeks ago.  Oh my dog!!  Mom says that I might love that toy a little much.  What do you think?


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

Paw Time with Houdini

 

HA – BARKS!  Mommy said that this was the cutest tail that she has even seen – barks with puppy laughter.  Sorry Bacon and daddy – I gotta cute butt – what can I say?!  Okay I have to admit that in this picture, daddy had my upmost attention.  You can tell by the way I’m standing – the position of my cute tail and my one ear standing up.  Daddy was actually giving me a treat.  Just ignore dad’s holey shirt – barks!  Mommy says that his around the house shirt only.  And you know, this pooch will take as many and any kind of treats he can get.

And Bacon take notice of my t-shirt.  HA!  I know – I know.  I probably should not have gotten it but it was so darn cute.  And I gotta pick on my bro – if I don’t, who will, right?  Okay maybe Hemi will by slapping him on his hiney with his huge paw – now *that* is something I never get tired of watching.  Talk about amusement here around the Hotel Thompson.

And today is an awesome day my friends.  Do you know what today is?  I mean more than just being the obvious Friday?  Today is the last day at work for my mom.  She starts her holiday when she leaves work today.  YES – DO A LITTLE DANCE – HAPPY DANCE.  Nine entire days with having mommy at the Hotel Thompson.  I’m so excited I may wee myself!

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

WHO do I need to talk to my friends?  This weather is horrible.  It has been raining so much that I’m not sure which of us is more done with, me, mom, dad or Bacon.  And to top it off, it’s cold.  Not freezing cold but chilly willy for this little camper.  I’ll tell you a secret of how cold it is – come closer – some days I don’t even get out of my onesie – that’s how cold it is.  Can you imagine?!

And one night this week, mom came home from the worky place and was cold and tired.  After she put on her onsie, she cuddled up on her chaise to relax.  I drug my lobster bed all the way from my bedroom to the fireplace.  Then I jumped on the chaise with mom to watch the fire.  She laughed cause she was like all of that work and I’m going to sit with mom now?  Nah, I’m a smart doggie.  I was letting the fire from the fireplace take the chill off my bed and make it all nice and toasty for me.  See, who’s the smart one now huh?  After a few minutes, I went and got in that toasty bed.  I was so snug and warm!

Hopefully, it’s suppose to be a pretty weekend here – cold but no rain – so maybe I can go out with mom/dad for a ride.  I feel a field trip to the local pet store coming on for me.  I haven’t destroyed any pillows in a while – barks!

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

Paw Time with Houdini – Spooky Video Attached

Barks my friends!  Another week gone and tomorrow is the BIG day – HALLOWEEN!  We can’t wait.  We are going to celebrate the way mom did when growing up.  We are all going to bundle up in the big bed with popcorn and watch scary movies.  I think we are all excited just to be together.  I’m sure we will all be snoring before the first show ends – barks!

But I did dress up in my costume.  Our local pet store had a dress up party and I went last night.  It was so much fun!  I got to strut myself around in my Captain America outfit and be a Super Hero for a while.  They had puppy treats and treat bags for anipals that I got to bring home.  Score one for the little puppy huh?  This is a picture that mom took of me in my outfit.  If you look closely, I’m smiling and you can see my teeth.  Dad says I’m Captain America but mom says with those two front teeth showing, I could be VAMPIRE Captain America – BARKS!
 Mom/dad say we have lots of errands to do this weekend.  One of those errands they say I have to go with them.  The way they said it, it didn’t sound good.  I’m thinking this weekend might be the V.E.T. thing they keep spelling out around me.  They don’t understand that us anipals know these key important words that they like to spell.  I’m hoping I’m wrong about the V.E.T. but the way daddy keeps saying it with a grin in his voice, I don’t think so.  I’ll keep you posted.

And my friends, I have a special treat for you today.  All of us anipals and even the rock clan have been working on a project to help end 31 Days of Spook.  We put together a little something and we hope that you enjoy it my friends.

Barks!  Well friends there was a lot going on here at the Hotel Thompson this week.  Let me run them down for you –

First – mom weighed in last weekend.  She is down a whopping 12 pounds!  She weighs in again tomorrow.  I’m hoping that the scales are still going in the right direction for her – DOWN.  Isn’t that awesome?  And she hasn’t lost her temper and beat dad up for some chocolate yet.  That’s a lot in itself – barks!

Second – I have my monthly groomers appointment tomorrow.  I’m excited on one paw but upset on the other paw.  You see, mom wants me to be all pretty and everything – that’s a given.  But she also wants me pretty because next weekend is the dreaded yearly shots.  Can you believe it’s been a year already?  You know what the vets visit means?  I better get extra treats because I’m going to be violated.  That’s what that means. Pouts.

Third – Bacon has been really pounding his keyboard on his laptop this month in getting his 31 Days of Spook out.  We all hope that you are really enjoying his blog postings.  He has worked hard on them.  The other night – he even scared himself.  It was hilarious!  And I’m not sure if you have noticed, but me and the pig have a journal on line now that we are keeping.  Thanks to our good friends Easy and his Staff, they got us started here.  We hope that you visit it and read about the inside makings at the Hotel Thompson.

And lastly, I got in trouble this week here at the Hotel Thompson.  Can you believe that?  Me in trouble?  You see, I was sleeping with mommy on her chaise.  Mouse Girl climbed up on daddy and wanted some loving.  Let’s just say it didn’t go well from there.  But that Bacon – he videotaped it all.  Busted I was!  Hope you enjoy the video.  I guess mom was right to put my t-shirt on that day that said, “It’s all about ME!”

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

Hello my dear sweet friends.  Another week has come and gone.  Have you had a great one?  The weekend is what I live for here at the Hotel Thompson.  That’s when mom and dad are both home and I can get extra loving in between Mouse Girl, Hemi and Bacon.  But don’t worry about me, I find me some loving for sure.  Like in the afternoons when mom gets home from the worky place.  Guess who gets to go to the mailbox with her to get the mail.  This puppy.  That’s right.  Mommy takes me to the mailbox with her.  There’s all kinds of weird smells out there for a pup like me.  I just sniff at the wind while being carried of course.  Barks – did you think I walked.  No way?

Mom is also down a week on her 8 week challenge.  She and dad are doing 8 weeks of eating straight – no sweets/sugar and mom has given up her soda for that time.  Now that is a HUGE challenge right there in itself.  She only drank soda maybe once a day sometimes two but there’s a lot of sugar in a can so it’s gone and hello water – lots of water.  Tomorrow ends week 1 and only 7 weeks more to go.  They will weigh in officially tomorrow.  I’ll keep you posted next week about mom and how she is doing.

Mom got a picture of me and dad doing what we do best this week.  As you can see, I’ve been working out too – look at those muscles – barks with puppy laughter.  If you look down the hall, you will see the red of my lobster bed.  I spent a while pulling it out of my bedroom and that was as far as I got.  It wore me out and I had to take a power nap with daddy.

 

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

Oh my friends – it’s the busiest time of the year here at the Hotel Thompson.  Bacon works all year long working on his 31 Days of Spook to find some great stories and ghosts.  He’s been tapping away night and day.  I really hope you have been enjoying them so far.  He’s even got me, the purr things and mom/dad into his research.  It should be a glorious spooky October 🙂

I want to share something with you that my mom got for her office.  She picked four of my best pictures from my first year and had a collage put on canvas.  This is hanging up in her office at the worky place now.  Something to remind her of me every day when she goes to work without me.  What do you think?  It’s beautiful huh?  I think she did great in picking out four of my best pics.

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

 Hey my friends – nope you are right – It’s only Thursday – Barks!  But there’s a lot going on with my blog tomorrow so I wanted to jump in here a day early.  Last weekend, I went to my spa day.  I absolutely ❤ spa day.  I get my bubble bath and trim.  And the most important thing – I get fawned over by all of the ladies while I’m there – that’s what I’m talking about!  When mom came and got me, I was walking around in the back of the shop getting my love on with the staff.  The owner opened up the door to the grooming part of the shop and said, “Houdini, your mom is here.”  I came walking to the front and saw mommy.  Then I took off running to her.  I love my new spa place.  They are totally awesome!

What’s more awesome then spa day?  The days that daddy takes me to the big bedroom and let’s me wake up mommy for the worky place.  OMD!  Those days are so much fun.  Do you wanna know what it looks like from mom’s perspective?  I can show you – it’s a little dark but Bacon helped me set up the video in the big bed just for this video.  And thank goodness we put it in slow motion.  If not, it would be over before you knew it!  Hope you enjoy it my friends – happy early weekend!

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

Another week down my friends.  It was a busy week with mom/dad’s anniversary and Bacon’s birthday but it was a fun week.  Bacon has also been busy getting ready for his 31 Days of Spook in October and of course mom has started her DIEt again for the gazillionth time – rolls puppy eyes.  Do all women go through this?  Please tell me yes – barks!

The weather here has started getting cooler.  Bacon is loving that.  I myself am not sure.  This six pound body gets cold like you wouldn’t believe.  A couple of nights, mom has made a fire (by flipping the switch – barks with laughter).  I crawl up in her lap on her chaise to feel the heat and watch the flames.  That is the life my friends.  And don’t you love my shirt?  I got it just for Bacon to pick on him.  He’s not too fond of it for some unknown reason?  Maybe because it makes my butt look small?

Oh, and this is hilarious.  When mom/dad came home Sunday from their night out, guess what happened?  The toilet decided it didn’t want to work anymore and wouldn’t flush.  Isn’t that awesome?  So mom had to go the local Home Depot store to pick up what she called a flapper.  I wouldn’t let her out of my sight so guess who got to go with her?  Yep that would be me.  I was her assistant. So we went together.  That place is cool.  The smells are funny but there was so many people that wanted to pet me and oohh and aaww over me.  Of course, I ate that up!  I was the main attraction in the plumbing aisle.

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

   Barks my friends!  What a busy past couple of weeks we have had here at the Hotel Thompson.  So much going on with mommy.  She is really trying to feel better these days and has been to the doctor a couple of times.  It has a lot to do with the weather changing and getting a little bit cooler.  It’s really messing with Mr. Arthritis.  He seems like such a mean person.  I wish I could meet him.  I would bite his ankles for what he does to mom and dad at times.

I gotta tell you a story about someone I did meet this weekend here at the Hotel Thompson – right in my living room too.  There I was playing around in front of the fireplace.  That’s when i saw this other pooch staring at me.  Do you see him in the pictures below?  What the barks was he doing in *my* front room and how did he get in.  I stopped what I was doing, stared him down and barked like crazy at him.  But oh no, he kept hiding in the fireplace – what a wuss!

I sat there and waiting patiently – of course throwing in some growls and barks.  Then mom saw me and asked me what was going on.  Then she told me something amazing.  She said it was me in what she called a reflection in the glass.  OMD!!  No wonder that dog looked so handsome – it was me!  Barks – Barks – Barks
