Spotlight Thursday – Meet Simson

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!


Name:  Simson – but my humans call me Simmie.

Age:  3.5 years old so I have a lot of energy!

Location:  Just outside Stockholm in Sweden

Web/Blog Page:  https://ladyfi.wordpress.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? I was only 17 months old when I came to live with my new parents, my two new human small people and another dog (my aunt) called Ruby – so I was a bit nervous at first and shy.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Well, I had never been allowed upstairs before so my mum and Ruby taught me how to go upstairs so that I could sleep on the humans’ bed. I knew then that I had found a slice of heaven!

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  I’m quite a good boy, but had a few toilet accidents inside the house when I was younger. Also, I’ve eaten sandwiches off plates and my mum was very angry with me, so I don’t do it anymore. My humans always let me lie on them and they stroke me so I know how much they love me anyway.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Well, Mum works at home a lot so I spend a lot more time with her and she takes me and Ruby for lovely, long walks where I can run off the leash, so I think she is closest to me. If I look sad and bat my eyelids, then she will forgive me… 😉

 

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Humans think I’m very goofy – but that’s just the outside. I’m actually a very gentle and clever dog.





Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Travels in the South

 Welcome my friends to another edition of Travels in the South.  This week in honor of the eclipse, we want to bring you something special.  Something that is so out of this world that mom had to make pre-arrangements last week so she could partake in this glory.  Pre-arrangements as in she walked extra – snorts with piggy laughter.  And I don’t blame her because this was well worth the extra calories.

We’ve all heard of Krispy Kreme.  It’s a doughnut chain  that makes awesome doughnuts of every kind imaginable.  And when the HOT doughnut sign is on, it means they have hot glazed doughnuts coming off of the conveyor.  Hot glazed doughnuts that will melt in your mouth from being so fabulous.  Okay give me a second – I need a moment.

Okay I’m good.  With the eclipse coming this week, just for last weekend their regular glaze went chocolate.  Can you imagine hot doughnuts going through a waterfall of fabulously hot chocolate?  Trust me.  It sounds much better than what it looks.  But you can see from the pictures what I’m talking about.
   

Now do you see the hot chocolate glazed doughnuts in the box?  Yes trust me on this.  Mom/dad said they tasted so much better than what they look in the box – ha!  Their thoughts about the first time chocolate eclipse doughnuts?  They come off the conveyor hot.  They are great but messy.  I mean messy.  Mom told daddy that she thought she was going to have to hose him down before he got into the Jeep.  That kind of messy.  But good.  And mom said she preferred them once they went cold.  They weren’t as messy then – which she loved.  Either way, it was a once in a lifetime treat all the way around.  And yeah, mom/dad didn’t forget about me.  They brought me one of my favorites – an apple fritter.  Now *that’s* what I’m talking about!

Dear Bacon

20130618-013318.jpgDear Bacon,
What? Don’t hate. You know you want a hat just like mine so you can play outside with it. Right? Signed Scooter

Dear Scooter,

Yeah, sure. I would absolutely LOVE to have a hat like yours to wear outside and make the funny thing on top go around and around Maybe if it was real windy, I could fly. I like the sound of that! So, yes two please my friend 🙂


20130618-013334.jpgDear Bacon,
This is just me telling my friends on how to get more seed and nuts from the humans. Any suggestions for us? Signed Cute as Can Be

Dear Cute as Can Be,

Well you can also take tips from Journalist Rocky the Squirrel. He knocks on our back door frequently asking for a cup of nuts for him and his family. Mom even throws leftover bread out to them to help them out. You know, you do what you have to do. This economy has hit us all! Take care my friends. If you are ever near the Hotel Thompson, knock on the back door. 🙂

Dear Bacon,
I’ve read about your adventures in your magical back yard. Now this is what *I* consider a magical back yard… with drink in hand! You’re mom promised you a pool. Make her pay up pal. Signed Simple Puss

Dear Simple Puss,

I like the way you think my friend! My mommy made a lot of promises to get me outside. Although its only happened once so far, I think I need to make her pay up with one of the promises being a pool. Do you think I would be pushing it to be able to lay in a chair with a drink and food like you have?


 

20130618-013414.jpgDear Bacon,
I love to play music. I can bang that keyboard with the best of them. This is me practicing, “Unleashed Melody”. It’s a sad and soothing song to us pooches. Have you ever heard of it? Do you play any musical instruments? Signed Wolfgang Pooch

Dear Wolfgang Pooch,

You do have some talent – way to go my talented young friend. I haven’t heard of that song yet but I will be sure to Google it on the internet and listen to it. I know it has to be amazing! As for this little piglet’s talent. Let me see…. I’m thinking…. mommy says I rip some good ones… but I don’t think she’s referring to a musical instrument for some reason 🙂

I’ll keep thinking about that answer. Take care and maybe we shall see you soon in the Hollywood lights!

Dear Bacon,

Don’t even say it. I know – I know. Yo Quiero Taco Bell. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s really funny. Ha Ha. My humans think it’s funny to dress me up as a taco. How would they like it if I dressed them up like a hot dog? BOL (Barking out loud)! Signed TB

Dear TB,

First off, tell me they didn’t name you Taco Bell – TB for short. Now that would be funny. Oh, I’m sorry. But look on the other hand. You are cute. AND, I bet if they took you to a Taco Bell in the drive thru, you would get free food. Free food – that’s good, isn’t it? Be proud little guy. Wear it with pride.

Journey with Friends – Week 33

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


Sunday, August 13, 2017 –  Today we rested – LOL.  We all bundled up on the sofa and watched movies – some funny, some serious, some cartoons.  It was a great day of just being together.  Miles Moved: 0.84

Monday, August 14, 2017 –   I know some of you are following me on Facebook.  Some have questioned if the great surprise we have for September is what is currently going on with my other blog.  The answer is no 🙂  The other blog is entirely to itself and I’m working on that for me.  The great surprise is still coming in September – next month.  It’s good too.  Huge you might say.  We are all excited at the Hotel Thompson.  The final countdown is getting close.  Plans are being made.  Lists are being taken care of and then looked again several times for completion.  Trust me.  We will keep you informed.  Miles Moved: 2.78

Tuesday, August 15, 2017 –   The eclipse is happening Monday close here to our area.  I can’t believe how many visitors we are getting around here.  If you are in the path, are you getting visitors so soon?  I guess everyone wants to make sure they get the best spot.  Miles Moved: 2.39

Wednesday, August 16, 2017 –   At this point in Summer,  I can not walk outside.  Today the humidity was 90% and the temperature was close to it.  Talk about walking in a pile of sweat.  I’m sticking with walking inside (I’m sure work loves my paths I’ve created in the building – LOL) and using my treadmill.  It’s the only way I can exercise without being a pile of water afterwards.  Miles Moved: 2.30

Thursday, August 17, 2017 –   I can tell by the end of the week, I’m getting wiped out.  I guess that’s a good sign somewhat.  Not wiped out per say as in drained.  I mean wiped out in a good way from exercising.  By the time the weekend nears, I’m ready for a recharge of some sorts.  Miles Moved: 1.95

Friday, August 18, 2017 –   Finally Friday!!  I have worked hard all week because tomorrow I plan on having a planned small cheat.  There is something that me and Jim have been looking forward to all week that is a one time thing.  I will not miss a memory.  This is the great thing about living healthier vs trying to drop a lot of weight at once.  I’m living.  We can’t be ‘perfect’ every day.  And I have to still think of my blog too, right?  Travels in the South needs material – LOL  Miles Moved: 1.46

Saturday, August 19, 2017 –  Let me add that the planned cheat was happy and awesome.  Look for pictures this weekend on Travels in the South.  And I didn’t overindulge.  I wasn’t feeling up to par today.  Stupid allergies had me going something fierce this morning.  Miles Moved: 0.28


Thoughts for the week:   Friends, I know you have been wondering why all of the doctor visits lately, the waiting game for the return phone calls, etc.  I do have another blog that I’m keeping on the side about that journey.  If you would live to follow that blog and find out what is going on, you can check it out at https://brjourney2017.wordpress.com/  That blog is strictly about my new journey.  I will not be posting everyday on it and at times it might be a little graphic.  Thanks my friends for all of your support ❤


This week walked: 12.00

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  402.06

 ❤ small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks my dear friends – Welcome to Friday and my Paw Time with Houdini ❤

Mom was going through our baby book last weekend and came across the picture of me when I was a mere babe on the day that I adopted them.  I think I weighed right around 3-4 pounds at the time and I was around 5-6 months.  Wasn’t I small.  I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m small now.  But back in the day, I was really small.  Mom called me her little furball all the time.  I fit so snugly in Nana’s hands that day.  She held me all the way home.  aaww – those were the days.

I was so glad to be adopted to my forever home.  Sometimes it’s hard for me to remember that far back – three years ago.  Sometimes it feels like I’ve been here at the Hotel Thompson forever with my family.  I wouldn’t want it any other way for sure.

Hope you have a great weekend friends.  Now I leave you with Jokes from Daddy.  I hope you enjoy 🙂
