Dear Bacon,
Spiders eeww.  Nobody likes them man.  I’m sorry little dude.  I saw one on the floor.  It was huge.  There was no other place to go.  The evil thing was in the doorway threatening my manhood.  I jumped on the first thing I could to get away from it.  Sink be it.  This is how my master found me.  This doesn’t make me less of a dog does it?  My fear of spiders?  Signed Sweetness

Dear Sweetness,

Well, it might take you down a couple of notches.  You’re name my take you down a few more.  You are my fellow friend are a dog.  A big dog at that.  You could have easily walked over that little spider and saved you some grace.  Unless that spider is as big as you, you are the bigger person.  Start dogging up.


 

20121120-062145.jpgDear Bacon,
Hey dude.  I read your blog all of the time.  I see people talking about yoga and I’ve seen some of the positions.  I gotta lot of stress in my life.  I thought I would try it.  WOW – it works great!  This is my zen trunk position.  It took me a long time to get the balancing together but it’s great now.  Have you tried it yet??  Signed Stingphant

Dear Stingphant,

That’s amazing!  I’m going to have to try some of these positions in my room when no one is looking, especially that Hemi.  It helps out in stress huh?  I really don’t have that much stress but I think over the holidays I’m going to try it.  I’ll keep you posted.


 

20121120-062543.jpgDear Bacon,
Who says zebras can’t be fast?  I’m tired of being the underzebra in the bush getting chased all of the time. I bought me a bike and it is the bomb!  Those pesky little cats can’t catch me anymore.  Whatcha think?  Signed Einstein

Dear Einstein,

I’m amazed!  First of all, you have the talent to ride a bike.  Second of all, I would have never thought about doing that to escape the cat.  But I do have a question.  How are you going to feel that thing up with gas when it runs out?  Just a thought to think about.  Stay safe my striped friend!


20121120-062701.jpgDear Bacon,
I love the water.  I just can’t get enough of it.  My favorite sport is water skiing.  Everyone said that due to my size that I would never be able to participate.  Well, I proofed them wrong.  Don’t let anyone say that you can’t do something.  You can.  Signed Geoffrey

Dear Geoffrey,

I’ve got to admit that if you can do that, I can do some of the things that I want to do in my life.  There’s nothing that can hold us back.  Thank you so much for the inspiration!


20121120-062807.jpgOkay pig –

You think *you* have problems with those pesky purr things.  I have problems.  My master has pet mice.  You know where I’m going.  You can’t eat the pets.  But this, this is taking things a little too far and asking me too much.  What am I to do?  Signed Heathcliff

Dear Heathcliff,

WOW – mom does walk around telling me not to eat the cats.  I don’t.  I may tug on their tails a little but it’s all out of love.  But mice hanging around the head.  Oh buddy, there’s got to be a line somewhere and that’s pushing it.  You might need to leave the room when the master has those play things out wondering around.  I can hold back a lot but that – no way!  Be strong!

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks!  Greetings my sweet friends.  You know I’m getting ready for Halloween here – fun times at the Hotel Thompson.  And yes, you get to see my costume before everyone else does.  What do you think?  I back the boys in blue and stand behind them.  Call me Patrol Officer H. Thompson – sounds official huh?  I’m thinking of wearing this to mom’s work with her on Halloween.  Should be fun.  They already call me her office mascot – barks with puppy laughter.

And check it out – I have handcuffs, a baton and a hat.  I’m in official attire in my dress blues.  Would you want me to frisk and arrest you?  I’ve gotta get more training on reading the Miranda rights though.  Mom says lots of humans don’t speak anipal.  How do they live, right?

So now I leave you with my Jokes with Dad in his last Halloween joke – did you like them and the way he ‘dressed’ for the occasion?   We saved the best for last – barks!  He’s such a diva!

Paw Time with Houdini

See my football in this picture?  That’s me playing football over the week.  Daddy was trying to get my football and play with me.  See the look I gave him?  Doesn’t he know that this is *my* football?  He’s got his own footballs – go chase them, right?  Do ya’ll have anything planned this weekend?  Mom seems to be nesting a bit.  I think she has too much energy built up anticipating her upcoming surgery.  The woman is going mad here cleaning.  Someone help me… barks with puppy laughter.

This week I leave you with another Jokes with Daddy.  He had great fun doing these for Halloween.  Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend my friends – Barks!

Paw Time with Houdini


Sometimes a pooch just has to do what a pooch has to do.  You know what I mean?  Like for instance sometimes at night I’m ready to go to bed before mom/dad.  So I grabbed Mr. Donkey and went towards my bedroom… AKA mom/dad’s bedroom.  I jumped in the bed with Mr. Donkey, we snuggled in and I went to sleep.  This is how mom found me later on in the evening when she couldn’t find me.  What?  I’m big enough to admit that I like to cuddle when I go to sleep.  Mom/dad weren’t there to cuddle so I made do with Mr. Donkey.  What’s a pooch to do, right?  Yawns… in fact I need to get caught up on some more sleep.  So with that in mind, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Hope you enjoy it my friends.

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks!  Hello sweet friends.  Welcome to another week of Paw Time with Houdini.l  Don’t you just dig this picture of me?  See that white stuff around my mouth?  Nah, I’m not foaming white stuff from Day of the Dead.  Barks with puppy laughter.  That’s doggie ice cream.  Mom was feeding me ice cream before bed.  She’s cool like that.  And those are my new jammies.  She was telling daddy I already had poo on my jammies.  Do you see it?  HA!  I love these jammies.  Hope you’ve had a great week.  Things are getting back to normal here… whatever normal is.  Now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Enjoy friends and get some extra cuddles this weekend.

Paw Time with Houdini

Greetings my sweet friends!!  I’m so glad to say that things seem to be getting back to the norm here at the Hotel Thompson.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love spending time with Nana.  However, I was so glad to see mom/dad last weekend – barks with puppy excitement.  I thought they ran away from me never to come back again.  It was the longest I have ever been away from them.  But they came back in such great moods and they left something some thousands of miles in the air above us.  What was it?  Stress.  Mom/dad said they had the best times of their lives.  I’m glad.  That means I get more sweet moments with them here.  And don’t worry.  They will be sharing their adventures with you shortly.  But for now, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Trust me.  That man nevers stops!

Paw Time with Houdini

 

Hello sweet friends.  I’m at Nana’s house still – yay!!  I’m having a blast and playing with my toys and Dingo.  Of course mom/dad are still living it large having a blast of their own.  So I gotta keep this short.  So hopefully things will be back to somewhat normal next week.  But for now, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – enjoy sweet friends ❤

Paw Time with Houdini

Hello sweet friends!  Have I told you that I’m going to Nana’s today?  I’m having a blast with Nana – me and my Nana and her poochie Dingo.  I’m running and playing and eating and sleeping – all without mom/dad.  Mom/Dad who is what I asked Nana this morning – barks with puppy laughter.  So I gotta keep this short this morning.  But don’t worry, I’ll leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Enjoy sweet friends ❤

Paw Time with Houdini

Howdy folks – it’s Sheriff Houdini here.  Don’t you love the sound of that?  Sheriff Houdini. Barks with puppy laughter.  I’m wearing my cowboy hat that Bashful brought back from Wyoming.  I mean it’s a toy but I think I need to wear it.  You know just to show how official I am around these parts.  And to let Hemi know who really rules the Hotel Thompson.  I think that would be fascinating.  I wonder how long I can charge him for assault on me and Bacon.. you know for the times he slaps us in the fanny.  Could be what 10-20 solitary confinement in his room?  Now that sounds good to me.

And you are probably wondering what is happening around these parts at the Hotel Thompson.  Just what was/is this great surprise for September that we are all keeping.  Am I right?  Well, there is a great surprise and by the end of next week, that surprise will be revealed.  Mom/dad have a lot of work to get done this weekend.  I don’t think I’ll be seeing a lot of them… well except for tomorrow.  I have an appointment at the spa.  They said I look like a street dog.  As if?!  I

Now my friends I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  I hope you enjoy!

Dear Bacon,

After reading your column last week about a cat that does yoga, I thought what the heck. My master has a room for meditation so I tried it.

This position is called my sitting dog pose. I really does work on calming your nerves. Thanks little pig. Signed Peaceful Pal

Dear Peaceful Pal,
I’m glad it worked out for you. You do look really grounded in that picture. Keep up the great work!

Dear Bacon – hiccup,

My humans tell me that – slurred – I’m spending too much time with my close friend Jose. Hiccup. They don’t complain about me catting around on the streets anymore. They just don’t like my choice of friends. Hiccup. What should I do. Can they pick my friends? Signed Frisky Fiesta

Dear Frisky Fiesta,
You do understand that your friend Jose is not really ‘real’, right? Instead of having a problem with your choice of ‘friends’, you’re humans might want to look into some classes for you… With TAA (Tomcats Alcohol Anonymous). Perhaps you should lose the hat, get a new friend and start listening to the humans. Take care my friend.

Dear Bacon,

Are baths really necessary? They freak me out. Signed Wet Purrbie

Dear Wet Purrbie,
I love baths. They’re very relaxing. Especially when mom puts bubbles in the water. Instead of fighting it, embrace it. My purr things here love the water. We all do. After a bath, we all get our hair done – that is heaven. Find your happy place during bath time and learn to enjoy it.

Dear Bacon,

Just wanted to let you know man that we enjoy your posts. Happy Friday. Signed Don’t Worry Be Happy

Dear Don’t Worry Be Happy,
Thanks so much. It takes support and encouragement from fans like you to keep it going. I appreciate that. Happy Friday back to you.
