What?!

Hello friends of the Hotel Thompson.  This is Sherlock Bones reporting in from Chicago, Illinois.  Do you remember who I am?  I am Bacon, Houdini’s and Hemi’s cousin (my mom is Bacon’s mom’s sister).  WOW – that’s a lot to follow isn’t it?  Well guess what?  The gang’s mom/dad are not at the Hotel Thompson.  The gang of anipals are at Nana’s for a couple of days.  Why do you ask?

Because I have kidnapped them and they are magically here with me… and my two purr things – Poseidon and Marmalade.  Trust me, we are all taking good care of the pawrents.  We won’t let them get into too much trouble… but considering Bacon’s dad I think that asks for way too much, right?   And we all know where Bacon’s dad will be.  At any spectacular restaurant he can find – howls with laughter!  So stay tuned next week.  I’m sure there will be lots of details to spill.

Paw Time with Houdini

See I can be a good boy… most of the time anyway.  But on this particular day, I had the patience of a saint!  Really I did.  Remember last Sunday being Mother’s Day?  Well, the one thing that my mommy doesn’t get a lot of is sleeping in on the weekends.  So Sunday, daddy got all of us up and out of the bedroom so mom could just sleep in.  He fed us all and we tried to stay quiet.  Of course daddy feeding us isn’t the same as mommy feeding us and talking to us.  But we gave her a day.

I sat patiently on daddy and the side of the couch waiting for mom to come out of their bedroom and down the hall.  I was on guard waiting… waiting… and then waiting some more… and then it happened.

Mom came out of the bedroom!

I’m not sure which one of us was more happy.  We barked, grunted and meowed and then dad grunted cause he was happy mommy was finally going to take him out to eat… of course her choice of restaurant for her day.  And then, you know letting those two out together there is going to be some trouble.  Check out the video they made Mother’s Day.  Shaking my head.  Even after almost 30 years, those two are gross.

Paw Time with Houdini

This is my upward crane pose in doggy yoga – barks with puppy laughter.  I went to work with mom one day and of course I was on my best behavior.  This was me begging for her to stop work and take a break to hold me because well you know I needed some reassurance of how much she loved me.  Do you ever get like that?  Of course, she held me for the longest time. I even sat in her lap and on top of her desk while she worked.  She said she could work over me… and she did – barks with puppy laughter.

Today I leave you with something from daddy.  You know that he and mom can not go out unchaperoned together.  That leads to trouble.  Today’s video from daddy just proves that point.  Hope you enjoy it my friends. Smooches and puppy licks.

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks with puppy laughter!!  Oh my friends last weekend I had the bestest time ever.  First I went to my spa appointment.  There is just something so relaxing about a long hot oatmeal bath followed by a puppy massage.  Then my groomer cut me into a cute little style, dried and primped me up to look so darn cute for mommy when she picked me back up.  When mom/dad picked me back up, mom just gushed and kept giving me kisses.  She said I was her cutest little puppy.  Of course I gave her kisses too.

Then we all got into the Prius (which is awesome – I can see out all of the windows!) to drive home.  But on the way home, mom made what she called a detour.  And I have to tell you, I liked this detour thing.  Mom got me my very first ever Puppicino – thud puppy down.  That thing was fantastic!  My first taste made both of my ears go up.  Then I had to go deep down into the cup and got it all over my face.  Mom just laughed when she cleaned me up.

After I got home, mom washed my face more and I was just darn tuckered out.  Who wouldn’t be, right?  Mom said she could tell by the look on my face that I was tired so she tucked me into the big bed and laid down with me for what she called a nanny nap.  I so enjoyed that!

Yawns, I think I might still be tuckered out.  So now my friends I’m going to leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Take it away pop!

Lowers my head in shame.  Mom told me… are you ready for this… that I look like a hot mess.  I don’t get it.  I had to lay down to digest and think about what she said.  What does a hot mess exactly mean?  Then I heard her on the phone with my spa lady Kim.  That made me happy.  I ❤ going to the spa.  There’s something so relaxing about having an oatmeal bath.  That’s the life.  I guess if a hot mess leads to this, I’m good with it.  What do you think?  So tomorrow I’ll be thinking about you while I’m taking my bath, getting my puppy massage and a full cut.  I think I need a cut.  My hair is so long it’s in my eyes.  Now that I think of it… mom’s hair is in her eyes too.  Maybe she is a hot mess?  Barks and rolls with puppy laughter.

Now my friends I leave you in good paws with Jokes from Daddy.  Enjoy!

Paw Time with Houdini

What does one do on a cold and rainy day?  Well us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson find warm spots and take a little shut eye.  You see mom and me were on the sofa first listening to the rain outside the front window.  It was peaceful so I shut my eyes.  The next thing I knew, Hemi joined the party by sitting on mom’s legs.  Bacon was sleeping in his room and dad was on the other sofa sleeping.  It passed for rainy day time in the living room.  Mom said she would have made a fire for all of us but she didn’t want to get up and wake us all up again.  Do you have these kind of days too?  Aren’t they the best?  After a while, I think we finally moved to the bedroom for naptime together.  It was a great lazy Sunday day afternoon after all 🙂

Now I leave you with Jokes from Daddy.  I actually got him to record a new one for you today.  Have fun!

Yawns!  Sometimes a dog can play too hard and too fast.  I know it’s strange but it’s true.  I blame it on Hemi and Bacon.  Really it’s their fault.  Both of them got me started the other night chasing me around the Hotel Thompson.  Mom finally had to pick me up to slow me down.  She said my heart beat was going a mile a minute.  I don’t understand that but those two brothers of mine had me running.  One would tag me and then the other would tag me and I just couldn’t take it.  I wanted to keep up with the big boys.  Mom says I’m not made like that.  I don’t know what she’s talking about.  My heart is as big as a St. Bernard.  I just can’t help it that my size doesn’t match.  Do you have problems like that too?  yawns…. I think it’s time for another nap.  Ya’ll keep running my friends.
