Spotlight Thursday – Meet Lucy

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:  Lucy Howell McCormick

Age:  seven years

Location:  Mustang Island, Texas

Web/Blog Page:  http://johnwhowell.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Well, I was a rescue from San Antonio and my mom met me at an adoption event. She was looking at another and my thought was she looks like the kind of person who will love me forever. I went up to her and the rest is history. (My secret was giving her a kiss)

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  I met my dad and he said, “This is the most beautiful fur person on Earth.” I knew that I had arrived.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  One night there were a lot of people over for drinks and canapés . Someone suggested going onto the deck to see the moon. While they were gone my sister and I ate everything we could find. Although I enjoyed the food I did think there would be a consequence. Turns out a visit to the vet was the only punishment. We never got another chance to do it again.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I would say my mom. She is smaller than dad and I can fit nicely on her couch when she is on it too. Old dad takes too much room. Mom always welcomes me when it is time for a snuggle.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?   Because I’m a boxer  and look like a bulldog people think I’m a bulldog. I get a number of people doubting I’m a boxer especially since I’m white in color. Of course, the minute they come near I give them the boxer greeting which includes a big kiss.




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

Decorating for the Holidays

 Happy day my friends.  We finally got everything together here at the Hotel Thompson and finished decorating for the holidays.  We don’t put up a tree here for obvious reasons – the two H’s – Hemi and Houdini.  That tree wouldn’t stand five minutes being decorated in our living room.  Trust me on that.  Between the purr thing climbing it and exploring, the puppy watering it and chewing on the bottom branches and well me – looks innocently – head bunting it, it would get tired and fall down to sleep.  I’m just saying and being realistic here.  It’s a good thing mom and dad agree.

So no tree here.  But don’t frown.  We have a Mickey Mouse lamp pole.  That fits in perfect here at the Hotel Thompson.  You know my mom LOVES that mouse with the gloves and we still get the pretty lights from the pole.  And the pole is sturdy.  I mean really sturdy like 20-25 pounds.  Hey, it’s gotta be sturdy to hold that huge Mickey Mouse head – snorts.

 We also put out my stocking for Christmas.  What?  You think it’s too small?  I told mommy I needed a bigger one.  One can never be too big for all of the goodies that dear Santa might leave in my stocking.  You know – like fruits, vegetables, Gold Fish and Animal Crackers – snorts.

I just have to find the perfect place to hang my stocking.  For some reason, daddy says we can’t put it on the fireplace mantle this year.  Something about it pulling down on the mantle last year.  One heavy stocking and your scarred for life huh?  Bummer daddy.

So I have to find a place for my little stocking.  I’m thinking on the back of the front room door.  That would surely be a nice place to put it.  And also Santa won’t miss it, right?  What do you think.  Any suggestions?

So who wants to kiss the Bacon?  Snorts

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon –  Now sometimes when people meet at the park they give hugs.  Sometimes when dogs or cats meet at the park, they sniff butts.  Hey, it’s what we do, right?  Well we have had enough of the butt sniffing.  A group of my friends have decided that hugs are the new hello in the dog world.  Maybe you should join us in our new mission.  Signed Hugs

Dear Hugs – That sounds like a game plan my new friends.  I never got the butt sniffing thing for hello anyway.  Heck, I’ve smelled what comes out of my dad’s butt.  No way in this piggy world I want to sniff it to say hello.  Carry on the great work and I’ll be doing my part for the cause in giving hugs not butt sniffs!


Dear Bacon –  I have drawn the line.  Mom always tells me I’m her little flower.  Now she is trying to make me her little flower.  Help.  Signed Bud in Progress

Dear Bud in Progress – I know it seems weird and it is.  But you gotta think on the other paw of this.  If it makes your human happy and she is daunting on you and giving you snacks, does it really matter?  You have found the pot at the end of the rainbow.


Dear Bacon –  We are family.  Our humans wanted a Christmas card this year showing our family.  We said okay but we wanted to pose as we wanted to pose – no help from the humans.  So what do you think?  Do you think this screams We Are Family in our Christmas Card?  Signed Family

Dear Family – Way to go my friends – Bravo! Bravo!  That picture screams family, diversity, togetherness and being united as one.  What more could you do?  I have to ask – that picture “looks” like you all get along and are so close.  Are you?  Or was this a snap-this-picture-now-before-I-hurt-someone kind of picture?  Cause I’m telling you, you are pulling it off.  Great card – don’t forget to send me one here at the Hotel Thompson.

.


 Dear Bacon –  We are buddies and sometimes secret hero’s.  Really, this is us clowning around during the night.  But during the day, we are the Pig and the Hare Hero’s.  We visit children’s hospitals and bring smiles to the faces we meet.  We highly recommend it.  Signed Hero’s at Large

Dear  Hero’s at Large – OMP!  You are certainly right my friends.  You are HERO’s.  Not all hero’s have to wear capes or have special talents.  Although I have to admit that you do have special powers of bring smiles to the faces that need it most.  Carry on my cute duo!


Dear Bacon –  Can you believe this?  There I was sitting back, relaxing and minding my own business.  My human said that he needed socks and to get out of his drawer.  What?  First up human, mind who you are talking to and second, you should have thought about socks before you left your drawer open inviting me.  I think you should go without socks today because I’m not moving.  Move me or reach around me and you may be wearing a sock over your bandage.  What bandage?  They bandage from the boo-boo I will leave on your arm.  Carry on now and be gone.  Signed Sock Keeper

Dear Sock Keeper – You know you do have a great point there my friend.  They should have thought about that when they left the drawer open.  Snorts – don’t do anything I wouldn’t do in that drawer.


Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send me your pictures and questions to my email address.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I don’t understand.  I think I need help.  You see.  Every time I smile, my eyes crossed.  I’ve tried holding my face straight.  I’ve tried closing my eyes and opening them at the last minute.  I’ve tried even holding my breath.  Nothing works.  This is the look I get every single time.  What in the world am I doing wrong?  Can you help?  Signed Happy Cross Eyes.

Dear Happy Cross Eyes – You know my friend, sometimes life throws us twists and turns. It’s how we handle these mountains and curves that makes us who we are.  Instead of dwelling on your look, embrace it my friend.  Not everyone can look as happy as you.  I would market that look – just think of your face and smile on coffee cups, calendars, posters – the possibilities are endless – and so is the money.  Make it work my friend. And do me a favor when you hit it big – remember this little oinker that believed in YOU!


Dear Bacon – Do you need a kiss?  Cause I’m here for YOU my sexy little piggy.  When my human asked me what I wanted to be this year for Halloween, I knew.  A kiss just for YOU.  You help all of these people in the world and I want to help you.  What do you say?  You wanna dress up with me?  Signed Chocolate Kisses

.

Dear Chocolate Kisses – What can I say?  That’s a proposition that I just can’t turn down.  And why would I, right?  So I tell you what I’m going to do.  I’m going to get mommy to dress me up as a giant peanut butter cup … cause you know chocolate and peanut butter go together, right?  I’ll keep you posted on my outfit okay.  Until then, Happy Halloween..


Dear Bacon – There we were hanging out in the house having a great time while the humans were away.  Yaki – he might have drunk too much.  That brother of mine – he can’t hold his milk like he used to do in the old days.  This is how the humans found us.  Of course, they thought exactly what you are thinking, that I was dunking his head in the throne.  Nah, I wouldn’t do that to Yaki.  I was holding his ears back while he was throwing up.  See, I’m the nice guy.  Signed Teri and Yaki

Dear Teri and Yaki – I am shocked and somewhat astonished – perhaps even surprised.  I will admit it.  I did think you were baptizing him in the water.  I was wrong for sure.  That is very nice of you to help your brother out of a bad situation.  I say bravo and well done.  I think you may even get the big brother of the year award..


Dear Bacon – Aaww crappers!  There I was sunning myself in the open air minding my own business. I must have fell asleep.  I was so warm and content.  Then when I woke up, I was stuck on a rock and was in a hard place.  The water had went down and I literally was wobbling there.  The only thing I could move were my feet and head.  I wobbled forward.  I wobbled backwards.  Finally, I rocked enough that I fell into the water.  Trust me – you don’t want to do this.  Signed Wobbles

Dear Wobbles – oh my friend.  I’m so glad you were finally able to wobble off that rock.  I can just imagine how you would feel stuck there.  And you are right – this pot belly does not want to be stuck on a rock and hard place.  Take care my friends.


Dear Bacon – Why do humans want to dress us anipals up this time of the year?  Can you answer that for me please.  I mean I get it that they want to dress up, go door to door and have parties.  But, why us anipals?  Why do we have to get pulled in to their hysteria?  Let us stay at home alone and do our thing.  Cause what the humans don’t understand it that we will party our own way, am I right?  Signed Ted in Disguise

Dear Ted in Disguise – AMEN!  You said it perfectly.  Yes I agree that the humans don’t understand that we will celebrate this Halloween holiday in our own right.  Let them go out and do their thing – we will do our thing.  Take for instance me.  This little oinker has worked all month long on my 31 Days of Spook.  By Halloween, I’m going to be exhausted and barely moving.  When the humans go out for the night, I’m hitting the big bed, turning on the big television, setting the Select Comfort to around 65 and that’s where you will find me snoozing and snoring.  Is it Halloween yet?  Have fun on your night my friend.  And let me tell you something – I think you are dressed up enough with those glasses.  I love them!


REMEMBER my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please keep sending your letters and pictures to my email address.

Piper Wrote Me A Letter!

Oh my piggy heavens – squeals!  I got a letter from the strawberry I met at Summer Camp – you know Piper.  Piggy swoons – she even sent me pictures.  WOWZER – isn’t she a looker my friends?  Now do you see what I saw in her at camp?  Hubba hubba – I’m attaching her letter for you to read 🙂

.

Dear Bacon,

I hope my letter and picture finds you safe and happy.  I really enjoyed our times together at Summer Camp a couple of weeks ago.  I’ll be truthful with you – I miss you my oinker friend.  I can’t get you off of my mind.  I dream about you – see the happy look on my face.  I keep reliving our last day together where we shared our first hog and snout kiss – ❤ dreamy.  You know I don’t live too far away.  My mom said she would be game for a piggy date in the future… that is if you want to see me again.  Much love my porky love.  Love and ❤ kisses – Your Piper

Special Thanks To Laura Gerry who sent “Piper’s” pictures.  You are so awesome our friend ❤

April Fool’s Day?

Happy April Fool’s Day my friends.  What?  That’s not how it’s suppose to go?  Oh, I get it.  I’m suppose to “fool” you into something that you are not aware of.  Oh I see – that’s how it works.  Well, since I’ve already blown that part let me go in another direction.  That would be fun, right?  Nods piggy head – sure it will be.

I will tell you three things.  ONE of them is true.  YOU guess which one.  How’s that for an April Fool’s Day?  These may be tough so work it out my friends.


Statement 1 –

Since mommy loves the Mickey Mouse so much, dad thought he would meet her half way.  He loves the rock group KISS.

So, daddy compromised and got this rocking Mickey Mouse/KISS tattoo this past weekend.  Cool huh?

It looks tough.  It looks cool.  Mommy loves it.  Daddy loves it.  It’s a win-win situation.  Don’t you think it’s groovy?

.


Statement 2 –

Oh dear piggy heavens help me – please help me!  Mom and dad are doing a complete renovation here at the Hotel Thompson.  Work started today and should be completed by Friday, April 17, 2015.

We are talking gut work – front room, kitchen and hallway.  Out with all of the old – furniture, carpet and yucky linoleum in the kitchen.  Painted walls, new floors and new furniture – perhaps some other really cool stuff.

All by Friday, April 17, 2015.  Can I come live with you?


Statement 3 –

Our next door neighbor is getting a piggy – squeals – I’m going to have a girlfriend for real!  They’ve talked about it for a while now.

I’m so excited.  I can’t wait for you any longer Miss Piggy. 😦

.

.

There you go my friends.  Three statements – which one is the truth?  Go!

Paw Time with Houdini

 I Kissed A Girl and I Liked It!  Come on my friends – you know the words to Katy Perry’s song.

I kissed a girl and I liked it,
the taste of her cherry chapstick.
I kissed a girl just to try it…
It felt so wrong,
it felt so right.
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight.
I kissed a girl and I liked it (I liked it).

Barks!  Mouse Girl can protest all she wants.  I know there is something there.  She is my little cougar.  My little purr thing.  My fuzzy wuzzy.  See, pet names.  That means business.  She has them for me too.  She calls me her mutt.  Her dumb dog.  The bother.  aaww – see I told you she loves me.

It all started out innocent.  She was asleep dreaming… of course of me.  I walked over to her and she woke up kissing me!  Proof is in the picture my friends – she has the HOTS for me.

Fortunately Bacon was with mom on the other couch and he caught the picture in mid-stream like the paparazzi.  Way to go bro!

Then we heard the clicks and saw the flash of the camera.  It took us both by surprise. You know what happens when you are taken by surprise and you get ‘caught’ doing something forbidden, we both jumped back a little.  You can tell that from the picture that was taken right after our kiss.

And don’t get me wrong.  I’m not trying to kiss and tell.  I’m trying to let the world know – I’m in ❤ with Mouse Girl.  And she loves me too.  She’s just not ready to admit it yet.  But you can tell too, right my friends?  And if these two pictures don’t prove it, Look at this one:

See that’s both of us together sleeping with our arms and heads entwined.  There you go.  Now you see?  That’s my belly up front, Mouse Girl is behind me.  And mom/dad are right in calling her OMG — case I think I’ve called her that several times, “Oh Mouse Girl!”
