International Day of Friendship

  Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

Of all of the important holidays I can tell you about, today seems to be the most important in my book.  It is International Day of Friendship.  The world is filled with too much hate, too many wars, too much prejudice and way too many disagreements.  Today, we should put all of that aside and reach out to each other and say, “Hello friend happy friendship day!”

This is just not a backyard problem or a school playground problem.  This is a worldwide problem.  A problem that needs to come to an end.  Everyone has differences – we wouldn’t be individuals if we didn’t.  But when you look down to it, we all want to be happy and what better way than to get along.

Today let’s make friends with different people, different cultures and different countries.  Extend your hand – or an olive branch – and say hello friend.  Say hello to your neighbor, to the stranger at the market and say hello to a person that you see everyday but you don’t even know their name.  Today is the day to make a friend near and far.

To all of our friends, we at the Hotel Thompson would like to say thank you for being our friend – happy friendship day.  And to those that don’t know us yet, Happy Friendship Day.  May we get to know you better today and in the future!

 Who will YOU say hello friend to today?

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks!  Greetings my sweet friends.  You know I’m getting ready for Halloween here – fun times at the Hotel Thompson.  And yes, you get to see my costume before everyone else does.  What do you think?  I back the boys in blue and stand behind them.  Call me Patrol Officer H. Thompson – sounds official huh?  I’m thinking of wearing this to mom’s work with her on Halloween.  Should be fun.  They already call me her office mascot – barks with puppy laughter.

And check it out – I have handcuffs, a baton and a hat.  I’m in official attire in my dress blues.  Would you want me to frisk and arrest you?  I’ve gotta get more training on reading the Miranda rights though.  Mom says lots of humans don’t speak anipal.  How do they live, right?

So now I leave you with my Jokes with Dad in his last Halloween joke – did you like them and the way he ‘dressed’ for the occasion?   We saved the best for last – barks!  He’s such a diva!

Paw Time with Houdini

See my football in this picture?  That’s me playing football over the week.  Daddy was trying to get my football and play with me.  See the look I gave him?  Doesn’t he know that this is *my* football?  He’s got his own footballs – go chase them, right?  Do ya’ll have anything planned this weekend?  Mom seems to be nesting a bit.  I think she has too much energy built up anticipating her upcoming surgery.  The woman is going mad here cleaning.  Someone help me… barks with puppy laughter.

This week I leave you with another Jokes with Daddy.  He had great fun doing these for Halloween.  Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend my friends – Barks!

Paw Time with Houdini


Sometimes a pooch just has to do what a pooch has to do.  You know what I mean?  Like for instance sometimes at night I’m ready to go to bed before mom/dad.  So I grabbed Mr. Donkey and went towards my bedroom… AKA mom/dad’s bedroom.  I jumped in the bed with Mr. Donkey, we snuggled in and I went to sleep.  This is how mom found me later on in the evening when she couldn’t find me.  What?  I’m big enough to admit that I like to cuddle when I go to sleep.  Mom/dad weren’t there to cuddle so I made do with Mr. Donkey.  What’s a pooch to do, right?  Yawns… in fact I need to get caught up on some more sleep.  So with that in mind, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Hope you enjoy it my friends.

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks!  Hello sweet friends.  Welcome to another week of Paw Time with Houdini.l  Don’t you just dig this picture of me?  See that white stuff around my mouth?  Nah, I’m not foaming white stuff from Day of the Dead.  Barks with puppy laughter.  That’s doggie ice cream.  Mom was feeding me ice cream before bed.  She’s cool like that.  And those are my new jammies.  She was telling daddy I already had poo on my jammies.  Do you see it?  HA!  I love these jammies.  Hope you’ve had a great week.  Things are getting back to normal here… whatever normal is.  Now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Enjoy friends and get some extra cuddles this weekend.

Paw Time with Houdini

Greetings my sweet friends!!  I’m so glad to say that things seem to be getting back to the norm here at the Hotel Thompson.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love spending time with Nana.  However, I was so glad to see mom/dad last weekend – barks with puppy excitement.  I thought they ran away from me never to come back again.  It was the longest I have ever been away from them.  But they came back in such great moods and they left something some thousands of miles in the air above us.  What was it?  Stress.  Mom/dad said they had the best times of their lives.  I’m glad.  That means I get more sweet moments with them here.  And don’t worry.  They will be sharing their adventures with you shortly.  But for now, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Trust me.  That man nevers stops!

Hello sweet friends.  I’m at Nana’s house still – yay!!  I’m having a blast and playing with my toys and Dingo.  Of course mom/dad are still living it large having a blast of their own.  So I gotta keep this short.  So hopefully things will be back to somewhat normal next week.  But for now, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – enjoy sweet friends ❤
