Tired Bacon – Sleeping Bacon

Last night I played hard.  I mean really, REALLY hard.  After dinner, I ran through the Hotel Thompson like it was on fire!  Up and down the halls, through my room, the frontroom and even the kitchen.  I was running so hard that I was leaving skid marks and running into walls.  It happens at times.  I had to flex my piggy muscles and run like the wind.

Afterwards, I pulled my king size Egyptian blankie to the front room, in front of the couch where mom was and stretched out on it.  I had to be near mom because you know that way she could pet me and scratch my back.  It makes me feel good to know that she is close.

Mom was laughing at me running through the front room like a cannon ball.  When I tell you it tired me out – I’m not lying!  I think I stayed there on my special sheet for over an hour.  Of course, it didn’t hurt that mom was loving on me 🙂

Can you tell that I was tired from this last picture?  The look in my eyes should tell you everything – I was bushed!  I didn’t even stay up long enough to hear my bedtime story from mom.  That’s tired!

Guess What Started Yesterday?

The running of the bulls!

WOW – Can you believe it’s already that time of the year again.  Starting yesterday and running through July 14th, starts the Running of the Bulls. Really? People really put their lives in jeopardy to run through the streets of Pamplona, Spain chased by B.U.L.L.S with HORNS. I gotta ask. Are you crazy?! This is not only for one day but it is a annual festival that starts today.

I understand it is a tradition. The first thing they do is take a statue of San Fermin and parade it through Pamplona. This saint is believed to ‘protect’ the runners as they are being chased by the mean bulls. And, it really did look festive on television. They even had musicians playing and singing. And they had people standing on balconies throughout the streets that watched the bulls chasing the humans. Now, I enjoyed the music, the singing and I could even watch.

But, this little pig doesn’t run that fast to participate in the running FROM the bulls – snorts. I would be a nice little snack for them. Shivers. And the actual bull run lasts about four minutes – but still I don’t think this oinker would have a chance.

So instead of ‘running’ from the bulls, I thought I would do it ‘my’ way 🙂

A couple of years ago, I started my own “Running of the Bulls.”  I carried my king size Egyptian cotton sheet from the bedroom into the front room. At times, mommy would hold it for me so I could run through it. You know, like she was fighting a ‘bull’ per say. She would call me a pigatador – snorts. It was fun and kept me busy for some time. Even daddy got into the game playing and would hold it up for me.

It was really fun. I’m not sure who it wore out faster – me, mommy or daddy. Even Hemi, the purr thing here at the Hotel Thompson, got into the action and would run through it. What can I say – we are so easily entertained!

This year, I think we are taking some of this fun out in my magical back yard.  If you see us out there, we are just practicing… nothing to fear yet – evil snorts!

Paw Time with Houdini

Yawns my friends – it’s been a LONG weekend.  If you remember, last weekend I was suppose to go for my spa day.  But due to the Snowmageddon weather, it got cancelled.  I need my spa day desperately.  Mom keeps calling me a street dog – I don’t get that.  Do I look like a street dog in this picture?

img_5364I mean heck I’m fluffy and on and yeah my hair might be in my eyes and yeah I might need a bubble bath but a street dog?  Really mom?  So keep your fingers crossed for me dear friends that tomorrow I get to go and meet my friends at the Spa – and hopefully Fifi the cute little poodle will be there too.  She’s adorable!

This week, I leave you with a spectacular toy that I got at Christmas.  It was a fun toy.  I say was because I’ve been taking lessons from my buddy Easy across the pond in toy destruction.  I’m still in training and I have a long way to go but I’m getting there.  Have fun with the video.  Make sure you turn your sound up.  The noise is fabulous. Even my mom LOVES that sounds constantly for hours.  She always tells me, “Seriously Houdini?”  I think I should get her one to play with too.  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


Hello my dear friends – BARKS!  Welcome to another week of my Paw Time with Houdini.  This week has been exciting here at the Hotel Thompson.  First up – I got a new bed – and who doesn’t like a new bed huh?  You see I had a bed shaped like a crab but one night I had a dream and that bed miraculously exploded.  Yep, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.  This is my new bed.  Looks kind of familiar huh? I already have a HUGE Kong size bed for my bedroom but this poochie bed is for the living room in front of the fireplace.  Don’t all anipals have two beds for taking naps?  BARKS – and let me tell you – it’s so comfy!   The purr things have *tried* sleeping in it but I remind them really quick that they have beds and this one is mine and I marked it as such by rolling all over it and licking it.

.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with my groomer.  I haven’t been in a couple of months because of all of the holidays and mom/dad running around.  So trust me, it is much, MUCH needed.  I feel like Cousin Itt from the Adams Family – BARKS – don’t you just love that show?  Bacon has been watching it on DVD and we just snort and bark at it all day long.

Hopefully next week you will see much better groomed.  Mommy says that she can barely see my eyes – I hate that!  And hopefully, FiFi the sweet poodle I met last time will be there too.

And yes, this is one of my new shirts.  It says, “Yeah, I work out!”  Barks!  Too funny huh?


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

Paw Time with Houdini

Well my friends, it’s been a tough week.  I’ve seen mom more than last week and it is getting better but sometimes her nights are spent at work instead of where she belongs – with us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson.  Doesn’t she know her priorities?  Of course, she reminds us gently that she is working to keep us in kibbles and treats… so we tend to forgive her *some*.

With mom being AWOL, me and Bacon have been pounding the keyboards ourselves taking care of our blogging.  I’ll tell you something my friends – this is hard work.  Really think about it.  Humans have fingers that are made for typing.  I have paws and it’s hard – talking about typo’s – thank goodness for spellcheck.  And my poor brother Bacon, he has hooves!  But on the other paw, he has been doing this for so long that he has gotten kind of used to the pounding.  And trust me when his creative juices get flowing, you don’t want to be around him – he’s a BEAR not a pig during those times – barks with puppy laughter.

In fact, during one of his water breaks he took this picture of me pounding on my keyboard working on some replies.  A dogs job is just never done!


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

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks!  I just gotta share something with you my friends.  For Christmas, the big guy called Santa brought me some Greenies. Not just any kind of Greenies but Holiday Spice flavor.  Can we talk?  They are delicious!  Someone told mommy about Greenies and said they were good for my gums and teeth – barks!  And everyone knows that I got me some sharp teeth – just ask daddy when we play.

So Santa brought me some teenie sized Greenies – Oh my doggy heavens!  They are perfect – just my size!

image Look at that Greenie!  Isn’t it *almost* as adorable as me – I said *almost*.  Barks with puppy laughter.  When I got my first one, I didn’t know what to do with it but I knew I wanted it because it smelled so yummy.  Then a few minutes later, I figured out what it was and destroyed it.  Now, mommy has to mention Greenie and I’m so there waiting for one.

How about you?  Do you enjoy a good Greenie every once in a while?  Do you like them?  What kind of flavor do you have?

That’s it for this week my friends – take care and have an awesome weekend!
