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!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon,  Our parents are so funny.  We are brothers born on the same day in the same litter. Our personalities are like twins though – we both have separate ones.  Our parents thought it was funny to put is in these contraptions.  But don’t worry.  I’ll be showing them what I think about this set up shortly.  Barks!  Signed Sitting Pretty in the Booth of Shame

Dear Sitting Pretty in the Booth of Shame – I have to admit something my friend.  Think of the originality that your humans came up with on this set up.  It’s outrageously funny.  Okay may not so funny from the side you are sitting BUT from the other side of this computer where I’m sitting – it’s hilarious!  I say play it for all it’s worth and have some fun.  You can always leave something in your humans shoe for payback later 🙂

Dear Bacon – I had surgery and as you can see I had to wear the cone of shame.  Shakes dog head and whines.  The cone of shame!  But look I’m not sad – I’m happy!  My master – he’s the best.  He made a game out of it and threw in all of my closest friends.  See, I even thought about you with Super Piggy in the front.  He reminds me of you.  What surgery?  I know no pain here.  Signed Happy Doggy

Dear Happy Doggy – Oh pal!  Where were you when the little guy here had surgery. This would have been fantastic for him to wear his cone of shame and have some fun.  Your master is tops in my book my friend.  I say when he has surgery, you do the same for him!

Dear Bacon – What?  I was tired from working the hood the night before.  See I’m on the neighborhood watch.  I gotta make sure I protect all of the humans from the bad peeps that come out at night.  The local diner takes care of me.  I need coffee STAT – and hey why don’t you make it a double and serve it with some eggs and a steak?  Signed Neighborhood Watch

Dear Neighborhood Watch – You are the DOG my friend.  I like how you take care of your hood and they repay you at the neighborhood diner.  I gotta get a gig like that.  Where do I sign up?  PIGGY POWER!

Dear Bacon – Using Facetime on these i Phones are the bomb!  See my girlfriend and me were talking.  We could see each other and it was a blast.  Neither one of us wanted to hang up.  We both fell asleep like this.  Isn’t she adorable?  Signed Beef Cake

Dear Beef Cake – hubba hubba.  She is a dish my friend.  I know exactly what you mean about Facetime and talking to friends not wanted to hang up.  My pet rock here Bashful has been doing a LOT of that lately with some of his friends.  Modern technology has come so far, hasn’t it?  Just remember to block the picture when you go wizzy.  No one wants to see that – it doesn’t matter how much in love you are.

Dear Bacon – Please explain something to me.  This yellow ball – why do the humans throw it and then expect US to retrieve it back to them?  I mean heck if they want to play fetch, shouldn’t “I” be the one throwing it for them to fetch?  That would help in their exercising… right?  Signed Confused

Dear Confused – You know what friend.  You have a wonderful point on fetch.  I understand this completely.  Humans do say they are playing ‘fetch’.  I think we should try it your way.  Throw the ball for the humans and let them fetch it.  We shall see how long that lasts.  If it’s my dad, maybe 2 minutes tops – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter!

 


 

REMEMBER friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send me your letters and pictures via email.  Snorts and thanks!

Hello Cousin!

20130113-150618.jpgThis is my cousin, Sherlock Bones. He lives in Louisiana with my mom’s sister. Can you believe that only a couple of days separate us in age?

He loves his toys as well and sometimes his little squeaky toys don’t make it either. He’s going through a stage now where he likes to see them blow up all over the room. Don’t worry Sherlock – a couple of mine, as well as my beds, have done that in the past. It’s like snow everywhere – so festive! We enjoy the activity and the pretty stuff going all over but the humans not so much. Go figure. Maybe they need to try it before they so no. Just a thought.

Keep up the great work my cousin. Can’t wait to hear your latest tricks. Can you image if we lived closer what kind of turmoil we could get into? We need to hit up on some Facetime soon to discuss the possibilities.
