Paw Time with Houdini


 Barks!  Hello sweet friends.  Hope you have had a fantastic week.  We all know my mom the shopper – barks with puppy laughter.  Well today I am wearing one of her finds.  She is always looking for new clothes for me.  Cause you know a pup can *never* have too many shirts.  Well, mom was shopping and found this shirt for me.  This is a shirt from the Cesar Millan line.  You know Cesar Millan – the dog behaviorist.  This shirt is made really well and double stitched.  I’m not sure what that means but mom got pretty excited over it and so did daddy.  Then again, my humans are weird.  On the bottom of the shirt (you can’t see it in the picture cause I’m sitting on it), it says Cesar Millan.  Mom has priced these shirts before and they are a little costly.  Well, she got this shirt on what she calls clearance for a sweet $5.00 – awesome huh?

Well my friends, hope you have a fantastic weekend.  Now I leave you with a throwback with Jokes with Daddy.  Hope you enjoy it!

Paw Time with Houdini


 Barks my friends – we made it to another Friday – YAY!

I have to say score for this little puppy.  Mom went shopping last weekend – we all know how this ends, right?  She told daddy that I needed some new clothes and that someone – looks innocent – was outgrowing some of their t-shirts.  What?!  A dog has to eat, right?  So this is one of my new t-shirts.  Don’t you love it?  Can you read it?  It says, “I flexed and then the sleeves fell off.”  For some reason, daddy thought this shirt was hilarious and I absolutely needed it.  So I guess you can say that daddy was the enabler for mom buying it.  Yep, that’s right.  Daddy was the cause – ha!

Well friends – I hope you get lots of snuggle time this weekend.  I leave you now with Jokes with Daddy –

Dear Bacon – Just chilling here in the jungle having my snack of bamboo.

It’s so bright here in my life that I have to wear shades.

Do you wear shades?  Signed Care Bear

Dear Care Bear – You know you do look awfully cool wearing those shades.

I’m going to have to see if mom can find me a pair for me to sport around.


20130428-203438.jpg

Dear Bacon – Hello man.  This is the picture from my pet annual that my mom got me this year from dog school.

Do I look like I’m a chilling here in this picture?  Because, I was like the happening pooch this year.  Signed Uptown

Dear Uptown – I like the look.  I could so easily see it catching on here in the neighborhood.

You ought to give P-Diddy a run for his money and come out with your own clothing line.  I bet it would be hot!


20130428-203451.jpg

Dear Bacon – Do these glasses make me all Sally Jessy Raphael or do they give me a classical smart look?  Signed Princess Tink Tink

Dear Princess Tink Tink – Well, honestly they do remind me of Ms. Raphael.

But, on the other hand they have a little more pink in them than hers that have more red.

I think you look classical with a touch of smart emphasis.  Vogue baby and wear those specs!

Dear Bacon – Sometimes at the zoo when people aren’t looking, we can let our hair down and be ourselves.

Visitors don’t get to see the real ‘us’.  If they did, can you image what they would think?  Signed Caesar

Dear Cesar – I think it would be hoot if I went to the zoo and got to see the ‘real’ ya’ll.  It would be hilarious.

I bet you would have more people coming back to the zoo for visits.  I think you need to see if you can get the rules at the zoo changed.


20130428-203503.jpg

Dear Bacon – Hey little dude.  I’m from Hollywood and my owner walks me around all of the time with him everywhere we go.

A lot of people will walk up to me and tell my human that I remind them of someone but they can’t quite put their finger on it.  I’m not sure who in the world it would be.  Signed Spike

Dear Spike – I’m not really sure.  I think you are working the outfit though.  And hey, I’m sure you fit right in at the Hollywood hills.  Just keep enjoying the attention my friend.

Paw Time with Houdini


Barks!  Hello friends.  I hope you have had a wonderful week.  A lot of people ask us about our nightly routines here at the Hotel Thompson.  I wanted to share one with you on how I go to bed every night.  It usually starts on the sofa with my mommy with my favorite night time friend.  This night time friend is special to me.  My nana gave it to me and helps me have wonderful dreams at night.  How do you ask?  Well, I had mom take a video of me with it.  Hope you enjoy!

And now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – have a great weekend!

Dear Bacon,

My master thinks he is so smart – bark bark.  He put things on the couch in order to make sure “I” wouldn’t get on the couch.  He forgot one thing though.  There is always the back of the couch – HA!  I’m not sure who was more surprised when he found me there – his face was priceless!  Signed One Smart K9

Dear One Smart K9,

That is too funny.  You are really smart.  I don’t know why the humans just don’t cater to us.  They know we are going to figure out the ways – You go pooch!


20130415-093732.jpgDear Bacon,

Does this look pitiful enough on my face?  This is my plead for, “Can you spare a cup of nuts my friend?”  It seems to work at times.  What do you think?  Signed Nut Collector

Dear Nut Collector,

AAWW that look is precious.  I know if you came to my door, my mom would let you have a cup of nuts… possible a safe dry place as well.  Bashful my pet rock gets that look sometimes when he wants things.  There’s just no way you can say no.


20130415-093759.jpg

Dear Bacon,

A lot of people are scared of me and I can’t understand why.  Don’t I have a likeable face?  I even try to smile more to make myself more personable.  Signed Smiling Liz

Dear Smiling Liz,

Your beautiful my friend.  It’s their loss if they can’t see that inner and outer beauty.  Keep smiling and doing your thing my friend!


20130415-093830.jpg

Dear Bacon,

Do you ever spend time in front of the mirror after you brush your teeth checking yourself out?  I just can’t help it.  This is my time when I practice my smile and winking my eyes.  Signed Vanity the Cat

Dear Vanity the Cat,

You know I do spend some time in front of the mirror.  I think we all need to at times.  I like to personally watch how I move my tail up and down and sideways.  You know cats move their tails with such elegance and I try to practice that to impress the purr things here.  Carry on!


20130415-093913.jpgDear Bacon,

Trouble in 3, 2 and 1.  The master caught us playing on the bed and thought it was hilarious.  You see, I’m not the one that initiates the trouble in this household – it’s the cat.  Always has been.  Do your cats cause this much trouble at the Hotel Thompson?  Signed Innocent Pooch

Dear Innocent Pooch,

Well, yes they do.  They are definitely the little instigators here at the Hotel Thompson.  They like to wiggle those long tails right in front of me to get my attention and then whine if I pull it.  And that Hemi with his extra digits, he likes to run by me and slap my little pig hiney.  Oh yeah, I can definitely relate to the trouble makers – snort.

What can I say? I’m a chick magnet. Every time I go through the park, the chicks follow me around. It kind of makes me feel like the Pied Piper but with chicks – bark. Signed The Dog

Dear The Dog,
Snorts. I have to admit that you are the dog my friend. Not only one or two chicks – you got the entire clan. Way to go. Don’t walk – strut – you are the dog!


Dear Bacon,20131208-204814.jpg

Oh surprise. Do you think the kids here will be able to guess what their new toy is? Rolls kitty eyes. This is only the beginning of the torture I’m in for. It’s time to get the nails out. Signed Surprise

Dear Surprised,

Let me start by saying yes it is awful that they ‘wrapped’ the kids new toy. But then again on the other hoof, that is so funny and cute. Just think how surprised the kids will be! Snorts. But I have to tell you, you have the patience unknown to me. They even wrapped your tail! You can’t really blame the humans. I mean, you did sit still long enough and allowed them to do this to you. Snorts


20131208-204839.jpg
Dear Bacon,
Meow. The humans have this game called Twister. They are in awe of it. What’s funny is the woman human bought this rug from the front room thinking it was just darling and it is. But all I can do is think of their Twister game. Purr thing on blue. Just wait until I stretch to the yellow or red dots. Insert evil purr. Signed Cat Twister

Dear Cat Twister,
OMP (Oh my pig!) You are so right. That rug does look like Twister in an off strange way. That is so cool. I think you should call in the dog, the humans and others in the neighborhood to play with you. It would be outrageous!


.20131208-204907.jpg
Dear Bacon,
You’re really not the only one with skills my friend. Sometimes when the humans leave up their laptop, I jump on for a few. These humans are twisted. I saw a picture of them on line and I guess my face shows you what I think. My eyes are burning. Signed Shocker

Dear Shocker,

Snorts. Sometimes my friends you should just simply leave things alone when the humans are involved. What is seen can not be unseen.

Paw Time with Houdini


OMD!  You are not going to believe what I’m fixing to tell you my friends.  I’m so excited.  Really I am.  See me all stretched out there on my ottoman?  I’m watching television.  Not just any show though.  Mom couldn’t sleep one night – go figure – so she was surfing the channels on the television and came across something amazing.  How amazing you ask?!  Out of this world amazing.  You see there is a channel specifically for us pooches.  It’s called DogTV.  Have you heard of it?  OMD – it’s amazing!  It’s specifically for dogs who are left alone during the day/night so it can help with separation anxieties.  They have different shows – relaxation, stimulation, soothing music to help your dog sleep and all kinds of other videos.  Now you are probably laughing and wondering does it work though?

Mom tried it on me the other night.  I watched.  I mean I really watched.  The color of the videos are more towards dog vision and the music is so comforting.  I actually fell asleep.  It was awesome!  You don’t believe me though, do you?  Okay – I found a short video on You Tube so I can show you.  Check it out – this is relaxation.

What did you think my friends?  Wasn’t it soothing?  I admit it.  It actually put my dad to sleep.  Barks and rolls with puppy laughter.  But it works, right?  Show it to your pooch and see what happens.  Now, I leave you with Jokes with Dad.  Hope you have a great weekend!! ❤
