Welcome my friends to October 1, 2018 – we all know what that means. It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest! A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night. The strange noises that vibrate through the house. The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers. I almost scared myself. So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement. This year, we are doing things a little different. We are writing a continuous story for 31 days of Bacon’s Spooktoberfest. So if you miss a day, you can catch up. Have a fun and scary month sweet friends.
And don’t worry, you can always hold my hoof.
There we all were – all of us anipals – me, Houdini and Hemi. It was time for the ‘family meeting’ here at the Hotel Thompson. Us anipals translated ‘family meeting’ into who left the fur ball on the pillow Hemi or who has been eating the cat food Houdini to the dreaded Bacon you need to slow down from flying through the house kind of meetings. These meetings were always about what we can do to improve the dynamics here at the Hotel Thompson. Rolls piggy eyes. I’m sure you can relate – boring – yawns.
We were settled in the living room when mom/dad walked in demanding our attention. But that’s when it turned weird. Mom brought popcorn to the meeting. All of us anipals love popcorn. Hey, something is not right. We all gathered our clusters of popcorn, started snacking and listening to mom/dad. Dad was talking. Now that’s weird. Usually it’s mom during the ‘family meetings’.
“Kids, we have some news that you might be a little upset at first but before you get upset, think of this time as an adventure”, dad then stopped and looked at mom before continuing. “Me and mom are going out for a couple of days this coming weekend. We are going to leave on Friday and come back Sunday. We think you are old enough not to be housed out to everyone. This time, nana will come and check on you to feed you but we are going to let you stay here in your home…. by yourselves.”
Us anipals just looked at each other in shock. What do you mean, leave us alone? Like all alone – no parental guardianship? PAWTY!! I mean, that’s a shame. I’m sure we will get along somehow. Secretly us anipals were high fiving each other behind our backs. Gotta make it look good though – sad looks on all of our faces and of course the needy hugs and lap time for sure.

Welcome my friends to another great week of Paw Time with Houdini. This week has been awesome – isn’t every week? Of course, it’s been busy too. Last weekend, we had a family meeting and Bacon was advised that he is going to summer camp. Now I thought it would be cool but Bacon is so against it. That oinker really doesn’t like nature does he? He has tried every excuse and had one-on-one meetings with mom and dad trying to wiggle himself out of the situation. But it’s not going to work. Mom is insisting on him going to Summer Camp – seven entire days in nature.
This week also ended Shark Week. And you knew it was coming, didn’t you. Mom was going to dress me up like Shark Bait. I knew it. So finally, she got my costume out and put it on me. Rolls doggy eyes. I let her get one somewhat potential photograph. I just wasn’t feeling it. That outfit was H.O.T. Did I mention we are in the south here and it is H.O.T.? It is. So she got a quicky picture.
There is a hat that actually comes up over my head and it has little slits for my ears to poke through. She had me all fixed up for like five seconds when she put me down in the ‘waters’ of the hardwood floor – Barks!
But anyway, she got a little picture to submit to Discover for Shark Week. Don’t I look mean and ready to eat you up?! Okay maybe not.
I also had Doggy Daycare this week and got to go up to Nana’s house. Bacon tried really hard and persuaded me to talk to Nana about his situation. He doesn’t believe me but even Nana said that it would be good for him to be away from mom/dad and be with others for Summer Camp. They are really pushing this. I’ll be honest with you. I kind of feel sorry for the guy a bit.
But back to doggy daycare. This was the day that I go to Nana’s. Me and the other pooches at Nana’s get the works. Danielle the groomers comes out to the house and gives us all special time in her R.V. We get baths, massages, blow drys, cuts, nails – the entire works! Then I get to hang out with Nana, Tinkerbelle and Dingo until mom picks me up when she gets off of the worky place. Also me being at doggy daycare, this gives daddy his day to get the big stuff done at the Hotel Thompson. You know, washing the bed sheets, changing the beds, getting dinner ready, mopping. Things he supposedly can’t do with me under his feet. I don’t know what he means by that. I’m just there helping.. right?
Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well. Happy weekend!
