Paw Time with Houdini


Hello my sweet dear friends.  I hope that your week has been exciting and great.  There are lots of things going on here this week at the Hotel Thompson.

One thing was – coughs – I was in trouble last weekend.  Okay, I’ll admit it.  I’ve been in trouble for this for some time but mom really was upset with me last weekend.  You see, when I was younger – don’t laugh – when I was younger and in my teething stage, I might have chewed some zippers off of mom’s pillows on her new sofa.  Might is a strong word because no one really saw me but mom told me if she needed to take bite marks for comparison she would so I fessed up.  I did it.  All five of them in fact – barks!  Well, last weekend mom sewed each one back to the way it was suppose to be.  And yes, mom might have poked herself while sewing several times and given me looks.  Of course, I tried to give her my cutest not me look mommy.  So there is a firm rule set in stone now here at the Hotel Thompson – no touchy the pillows Houdini.  Can you believe she used my name like that?  Hangs head low.

And we have visitors this week.  Two friends that mom/dad went and met last year are in our area again visiting.  Mom has taken some time off of the worky place so they can all play together.  You do realize that this means trouble right?  Cause I just know they may need bail money this week… and probably next week because they are all going out of town for a couple of days and leaving all of us.

Oh I shouldn’t say “all” of us because a certain oinker – not mentioning names – has went to camp this week and all of next week.  Why?  So mom/dad could have fun with these friends – which I will tell you about later with some pictures. You see the purr things – they can take care of themselves.  And me well I can take care of myself but Nana will watch me a couple of days next week.  Bacon well he’s like a little kid as mom described it.  He doesn’t take being by himself too well and Nana can’t watch him while she has her hands full with me and her two pooches.  So, mom/dad called the farm where Bacon went to camp last year.  They have other anipals that Bacon had a blast with and that’s where he gets to go for his adventure.  So, I’m sure he will have a blast.  I hope so anyway.  He did bring his computer so don’t fear about his correspondence.

And friends let’s talk about something that I keep seeing on the television all day long.  Something that mom/dad and even Bacon have talked about.  The presidential election.  Shakes my doggy head.

Does anyone really enjoy all of this arguing and calling names?  I really don’t.  Why can’t we all just get along?

I’ve come up with a solution.  Since people running are called politicians and we can’t really trust anything they say – barks!  Why don’t I run for president?  I think I have just about the same qualifications – you think?  And look – mom took this picture of me over the weekend.  Don’t you think it screams “Houdini for President”.

And of course, with that being said I have to leave you with another priceless Jokes with daddy video.  The man does need to go out and play with others more.  Shaking my head.  Enjoy my friends.   I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

Paw Time with Houdini

Yawns my friends – it’s been a LONG weekend.  If you remember, last weekend I was suppose to go for my spa day.  But due to the Snowmageddon weather, it got cancelled.  I need my spa day desperately.  Mom keeps calling me a street dog – I don’t get that.  Do I look like a street dog in this picture?

img_5364I mean heck I’m fluffy and on and yeah my hair might be in my eyes and yeah I might need a bubble bath but a street dog?  Really mom?  So keep your fingers crossed for me dear friends that tomorrow I get to go and meet my friends at the Spa – and hopefully Fifi the cute little poodle will be there too.  She’s adorable!

This week, I leave you with a spectacular toy that I got at Christmas.  It was a fun toy.  I say was because I’ve been taking lessons from my buddy Easy across the pond in toy destruction.  I’m still in training and I have a long way to go but I’m getting there.  Have fun with the video.  Make sure you turn your sound up.  The noise is fabulous. Even my mom LOVES that sounds constantly for hours.  She always tells me, “Seriously Houdini?”  I think I should get her one to play with too.  What do you think?

Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

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 – I 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!

Paw Time with Houdini

Well my friends, it’s been a tough week.  I’ve seen mom more than last week and it is getting better but sometimes her nights are spent at work instead of where she belongs – with us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson.  Doesn’t she know her priorities?  Of course, she reminds us gently that she is working to keep us in kibbles and treats… so we tend to forgive her *some*.

With mom being AWOL, me and Bacon have been pounding the keyboards ourselves taking care of our blogging.  I’ll tell you something my friends – this is hard work.  Really think about it.  Humans have fingers that are made for typing.  I have paws and it’s hard – talking about typo’s – thank goodness for spellcheck.  And my poor brother Bacon, he has hooves!  But on the other paw, he has been doing this for so long that he has gotten kind of used to the pounding.  And trust me when his creative juices get flowing, you don’t want to be around him – he’s a BEAR not a pig during those times – barks with puppy laughter.

In fact, during one of his water breaks he took this picture of me pounding on my keyboard working on some replies.  A dogs job is just never done!


 Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

Barks!  I just gotta share something with you my friends.  For Christmas, the big guy called Santa brought me some Greenies. Not just any kind of Greenies but Holiday Spice flavor.  Can we talk?  They are delicious!  Someone told mommy about Greenies and said they were good for my gums and teeth – barks!  And everyone knows that I got me some sharp teeth – just ask daddy when we play.

So Santa brought me some teenie sized Greenies – Oh my doggy heavens!  They are perfect – just my size!

image Look at that Greenie!  Isn’t it *almost* as adorable as me – I said *almost*.  Barks with puppy laughter.  When I got my first one, I didn’t know what to do with it but I knew I wanted it because it smelled so yummy.  Then a few minutes later, I figured out what it was and destroyed it.  Now, mommy has to mention Greenie and I’m so there waiting for one.

How about you?  Do you enjoy a good Greenie every once in a while?  Do you like them?  What kind of flavor do you have?

That’s it for this week my friends – take care and have an awesome weekend!

Paw Time with Houdini


Barks!  Oh my friends – what a busy two weeks we have had here at the Hotel Thompson and in blogville.  Christmas is now behind us and the New Year has today started.  The New Year with lots of great new beginnings and lots of memories to make and share.

There are so many things that we have coming up here at the Hotel Thompson.  Me and Bacon have a new series coming up called Spotlight Thursday that you can’t miss.  It’s where we interview friends – some you may know and some you will meet to make new friends.  We hope you enjoy it!

Mom is also going to be highlighting a travel series that my cousins went on overseas.  That way we can *all* live through them and their pictures – barks!  And I’ve seen some pictures – OMD – they are fantastic for sure.

I want to leave you with a photograph that my mom did of me.  She took the picture and used an app to ‘paint’ me from the picture.  We all think it came out marvelous!  In fact, I think my mommy is going to get it printed on canvas to hang in my bedroom.  What do you think of it?

Mom was so impressed with the app that she did a ‘painting’ of our friends Shoko and Kali as well.  Go check it out when you get a chance.  It’s an amazing app and it was FREE – those are the words that my daddy seems to absolutely LOVE to hear these days.  He mumbles about something about being broke after the holidays.  I don’t know what that word broke means – it’s not in my puppy vocabulary – barks.

image

So my friends I leave you with a picture of me doing what I do best – sleeping on mom’s new fuzzy blankie.  My mom/dad said that blanket would be comfortable and I’m hear to tell you – it really is!  I cuddled up in it and passed out asleep.

So all I gotta say is that the pig can have his king sized Egyptian cotton sheet.  I got mom’s new full sized fuzzy blankie – barks with puppy laughter!

 Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!
