Squirrels, Rabbits and Bigfoot – OH MY!

At the Hotel Thompson, we have a lot of woods in the backyard. It’s a good thing for privacy. There’s also a small creek that runs behind the property line. That’s a bad thing for the long slithery things that come out of it wanting to venture into our backyard – shivers. But, there’s other animal life back there. I’ve seen it all from my window in my bedroom.

There’s squirrels that hang out playing tree games jumping around and secretly taking our pictures for their photo albums. Sometimes they come up on the deck asking to borrow a cup of nuts. Personally, I think that Journalist Rocky the Squirrel sends over his family to sponge off of mom and dad. I’m just sayin’ – snort.

There’s also a family of rabbits that play in the woods and come into the back yard. They are fast. Last year, they were all babies and this year they have now grown up into beautiful adults.

Mom throws out bread and seed for them to eat. And, they love the clover in the back yard. There’s lots of that for their little buffet meals.

And let’s talk about frogs. Oh thud – the frogs are so loud at night! You can hear them from the creek croaking at night. It kind of calms you down a bit and it’s memorizing.

Other times you just want to hang out the back door and yell, “I’m fixing frog legs tonight, any takers?” Just piggy joking. We wouldn’t do that – PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).

And then, the other night we saw something that was unique and interesting. Mom, the ever ready camera gal, took a picture. Of course it came out blurry. I mean, come on it wouldn’t be a sighting if it wasn’t blurry, right – snort? There it was walking slowly through the back yard. It looked directly at her. I was in my room watching and it scared me so bad. What was it you ask. Are you ready for this? It’s unbelievable!

PIGGY DOWN! I was in shock. It had all of the signs of the legendary Bigfoot. Camera picture blurry, tall, hairy – it was BIGFOOT.

Then, I took another look. It had a slight resemblance to someone that I recognized. Shucks, all that fuss – my bad. It was just my dad walking through the back yard. Darn it – I was that close to being famous. Oh well, close though. I’ll keep looking. ūüôā

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon –¬†I’m a Himalayan Marmot.¬† I like to hang out at high elevations.¬† It helps me to destress and meditate.¬† I find a happy spot on some rocks, look over my kingdom and focus on being a better marmot.¬† What makes you feel good little man?¬† Signed Deep Thoughts

Dear Deep Thoughts –¬†You already have me in deep thoughts with that picture my friend.¬† I myself don’t like the higher elevations or looking over anything with that height.¬† I think I would panic.¬† I do however try to meditate in my room after my dinner.¬† I focus on happy things over my kingdom at the Hotel Thompson.


Dear Bacon –¬†There is nothing like laying around after a good meal.¬† I like to put on my little sweater to keep me warm.¬† Do you wear clothes?¬† Signed Petite Sweets

Dear Petite Sweets –¬†That is a real look there my friend.¬† You do look like your ‘full’.¬† And, I do like the sweater.¬† I’m not much of a sweater person myself.¬† I do wear t-shirts though.¬† Mom has a couple of pictures.¬† I’ll have to find them and post them later.


Dear Bacon –¬†You know that happy feeling you get when the human loves on you, you’re tired from playing and things are right in life?¬† I have here.¬† Can you tell?¬† Signed Happy Pooch

Dear Happy Pooch –¬†I would have never guessed you were happy in that picture my friend – snort.¬† I think it’s the grin that gives it away.¬† It looks like you ate the mailman or something and got away with it.¬† Stay happy my fellow four legged friend.


Dear Bacon –¬†Be honest with me my friend.¬† Are my ears big?¬† I kind of have a complex with them.¬† They worry me.¬† The humans don’t say anything but they look at me with that pitiful look in their eyes like something is wrong.¬† What do you think, be honest.¬† Signed Tiny

Dear Tiny –¬†I’m a firm believer in loving what God gave you.¬† God gave me a pot belly.¬† It’s there.¬† I can’t help it.¬† The only thing I can do is love what I got.¬† When you are happy with yourself – you will be happy pooch.¬† It shouldn’t matter what others think.¬† Make the best of what God gave you and go with it.¬† I know I am!¬† Hogs and kisses my little buddy.

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 РI 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!

Spring Harvest – Oh Dear Piggy Heavens!

Friends – friends – friends. ¬†I’m shaking my piggy head. ¬†It was quite the weekend here at the Hotel Thompson. ¬†OMPH (oh my piggy heavens)! ¬†My mom – sometimes there is just no help for her. ¬†Really. ¬†I’m not exaggerating. ¬†Really I’m not. ¬†You see she is feeling so much better. ¬†Her cough is almost completely gone as well as the bruises she got in the emergency room from her IV’s a couple of weeks ago. ¬†She has energy and strength. ¬†I’m telling you all of this to set you up for what happened. ¬†Wait for it – you won’t regret it I assure you.

You see mom also signs up for this business that send her different products to try out. ¬†It’s all free of charge. ¬†She tries the products out, writes up some reviews on if she liked/didn’t like it, etc. ¬†Well she got one in the mail a couple of weeks ago for a waxing product. ¬†Now guys and fellow anipals, waxing products are to remove hair. ¬†Spring is coming up and mom says it was time for the Spring Harvest. ¬†You see where I’m going with this now? ¬†Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

On Saturday’s mom and dad go out for their hot date – oohhh. ¬†So mom decided that Saturday morning she was going into the bathroom with her product, the instructions and a glass of wine. ¬†Something about doing her legs. ¬†I’m looking down at my legs and I think personally they look wonderful with hair. ¬†Don’t you agree as well? ¬†These humans are weird. ¬†Okay I admit these hairy legs aren’t my mom but hers are not that bad. ¬†Probably about the same. ¬†She says it’s something about being winter and wearing long pants that no one sees. ¬†Shakes head – I don’t understand that.

So we all hung out in the living room watching television. ¬†Then we heard some bumps. ¬†Then we¬†heard some grunts. ¬†Then we heard, “You got to be kidding”. ¬†Then we heard the door open and she called for daddy. ¬†Then daddy went to the bathroom, went to the kitchen and returned with more wine. ¬†Then we heard four lettered cuss words. ¬†Then we heard a loud bang. ¬†You see I’m telling you all of this from OUR point of view. ¬†After a while, mom came out stomping and cussing – bottle of wine in hand (I’m not sure what happened to the glass) and disappeared into her room to do her ‘write-up’ she called it. ¬†I snuck in her bedroom later when her and dad went out and copied this off of her computer. ¬†Oh dear piggy heavens – I’ll take my hairy legs any day!


Dear XYZ Company,

In a word, NO. ¬†NO I don’t recommend your product. ¬†NO I would never, absolutely never use it again. I can not recommend it. ¬†I will not recommend it. Why do you ask? ¬†Because I know you want details, so here you go.

I’ve been sick lately and I’ll give you that the instructions said to make sure the hair was grown out enough to see. ¬†Check I have that down pact. ¬†People get waxing professionally done all of the time – I’m a big girl. ¬†I can do this! ¬† ¬†I took a glass of wine into the bathroom, got as comfortable as humanly possible on the porcelain throne and read further. ¬†It stated to take the stick swish it through the gel in the bottle and to slowly spread in an even pattern small enough where you could then apply the wipe. ¬†Seemed safe enough.

Sip of wine for encouragement. ¬†Stirred the product with the stick. ¬†Then proceeded to spread the product on my leg in a place in the front lower portion. ¬†Something I could ‘try’ out at first. ¬†It spread smoothly – like butter. ¬†I thought so far so good, I’ll go ahead and do a small part on the other leg. ¬†Then I took a ‘wipe’ smoothed in on top of first leg and slowly stroked back and forth until even. ¬†Once done, I did the other leg in the same way.

I felt pretty proud of myself. ¬†I took another sip of the wine. ¬†I then read further in the instructions. ¬†“Hold down one corner and in a quick fashion, pull towards you.” ¬†Uumm… WTF? ¬†Basically your telling me to rip off the bandaid. ¬†This may be a problem. ¬†I didn’t think about the pain level.

I took another sip of the wine and finished the glass. ¬†So there I was stuck on the throne with two evil ‘wipes’ on both legs tossing around the possibilities of what to do. ¬†You know those white wipes really wouldn’t be noticed if I left them there. ¬†I almost look as white as them. ¬†Then I thought about fungus growing up under them with the ‘product’. ¬†I decided to call in for back up.

Once the hub unit brought me the entire bottle of wine, I forwent the glass and just chugged out of the bottle. ¬†It’s now or never I thought. ¬†I picked up the corner of leg A, held down the bottom part of my leg and just ripped. ¬†That’s right I said ripped. ¬†Ripped because that’s what if felt like I was doing – ripping my entire leg’s first layer of epidermis away. ¬†Holy hell! ¬†Are you guys kidding me? ¬†Hobbling on one leg, bouncing around and praying to the Gods above to just come and take me right there. ¬†I took another swig of wine and that’s when I lost my balance falling into the bathtub hitting my head.

I didn’t even care! ¬†Mr. Grim Reaper could come for me now because I was so close to death. ¬†In fact, then again he might not want to mess with me because I’m in so much pain. ¬†I looked down at my other leg. ¬†Oh dear God, what have I done? ¬†I actually cried at the pain which was worse than pulling fingernails off of my hand.

There was only one choice to make. ¬†Rip the other one off, get over the pain, get MORE wine and never, absolutely NEVER EVER use waxing products again. ¬†Do you understand what I’m saying? ¬†If you EVER send me another waxing product, you will know first hand what it’s like because I will do your leg whether you are man or woman. ¬†Capice?

Squirrels, Rabbits and Bigfoot – OH MY!

At the Hotel Thompson, we have a lot of woods in the back yard. It’s a good thing for privacy. There’s also a small creek that runs behind the property line. That’s a bad thing for the long slithery things that come out of it wanting to venture into our back yard – shivers. But, there’s other animal life back there. I’ve seen it all from my window in my bedroom.

There’s squirrels that hang out playing tree games jumping around and secretly taking our pictures for their photo albums. Sometimes they come up on the deck asking to borrow a cup of nuts. Personally, I think that Journalist Rocky the Squirrel sends over his family to sponge off of mom and dad. I’m just sayin’ – snort.

There’s also a family of rabbits that play in the woods and come into the back yard. They are fast. Last year, they were all babies and this year they have now grown up into beautiful adults.

Mom throws out bread and seed for them to eat. And, they love the clover in the back yard. There’s lots of that for their little buffet meals.

And let’s talk about frogs. Oh thud – the frogs are so loud at night! You can hear them from the creek croaking at night. It kind of calms you down a bit and it’s memorizing.

Other times you just want to hang out the back door and yell, “I’m fixing frog legs tonight, any takers?” Just piggy joking. We wouldn’t do that – PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).

And then, the other night we saw something that was unique and interesting. Mom, the ever ready camera gal, took a picture. Of course it came out blurry. I mean, come on it wouldn’t be a sighting if it wasn’t blurry, right – snort? There it was walking slowly through the back yard. It looked directly at her. I was in my room watching and it scared me so bad. What was it you ask. Are you ready for this? It’s unbelievable!

PIGGY DOWN! I was in shock. It had all of the signs of the legendary Bigfoot. Camera picture blurry, tall, hairy – it was BIGFOOT.

Then, I took another look. It had a slight resemblance to someone that I recognized. Shucks, all that fuss – my bad. It was just my dad walking through the back yard. Darn it – I was that close to being famous. Oh well, close though. I’ll keep looking. ūüôā
