Squirrels, Rabbits and Bigfoot – OH MY!

At the Hotel Thompson, we have a lot of woods in the backyard. It’s a good thing for privacy. There’s also a small creek that runs behind the property line. That’s a bad thing for the long slithery things that come out of it wanting to venture into our backyard – shivers. But, there’s other animal life back there. I’ve seen it all from my window in my bedroom.

There’s squirrels that hang out playing tree games jumping around and secretly taking our pictures for their photo albums. Sometimes they come up on the deck asking to borrow a cup of nuts. Personally, I think that Journalist Rocky the Squirrel sends over his family to sponge off of mom and dad. I’m just sayin’ – snort.

There’s also a family of rabbits that play in the woods and come into the back yard. They are fast. Last year, they were all babies and this year they have now grown up into beautiful adults.

Mom throws out bread and seed for them to eat. And, they love the clover in the back yard. There’s lots of that for their little buffet meals.

And let’s talk about frogs. Oh thud – the frogs are so loud at night! You can hear them from the creek croaking at night. It kind of calms you down a bit and it’s memorizing.

Other times you just want to hang out the back door and yell, “I’m fixing frog legs tonight, any takers?” Just piggy joking. We wouldn’t do that – PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).

And then, the other night we saw something that was unique and interesting. Mom, the ever ready camera gal, took a picture. Of course it came out blurry. I mean, come on it wouldn’t be a sighting if it wasn’t blurry, right – snort? There it was walking slowly through the back yard. It looked directly at her. I was in my room watching and it scared me so bad. What was it you ask. Are you ready for this? It’s unbelievable!

PIGGY DOWN! I was in shock. It had all of the signs of the legendary Bigfoot. Camera picture blurry, tall, hairy – it was BIGFOOT.

Then, I took another look. It had a slight resemblance to someone that I recognized. Shucks, all that fuss – my bad. It was just my dad walking through the back yard. Darn it – I was that close to being famous. Oh well, close though. I’ll keep looking. 🙂

Barks!  You know sometimes our humans are weird and forgetful.  I get that.  Really I do.  But my mom forgetting about sweet little moi?  That’s just disgraceful.  In fact, let me tell you the story and then you tell me what you think.

Mom/dad went out the other night and came home late.  Mom goes straight to the kitchen to do her nightly ritual things – set the microwave for dad’s lunch the next day, fixing the medicines for the next day, setting the coffee maker for the morning, making sure all of us anipals have food and fresh water, etc.

Also at night, we anipals all get bedtime treats.  You know just a little something to hold us over until the morning so our tum-tum’s don’t growl.

Well mom gave Hemi his cat chews.  Mom gave Bacon his strawberry.  And then mom walked to the bathroom.  Hold up mom – wait a minute. You forgot me.  I chased her to the bedroom and watched her as she got ready for bed.  I jumped on the bed and kept licking my lips trying to tell her hello – moi – moi – you forgot moi!

Finally when she went to the bathroom to wash her face and brush her teeth, it dawns on her.  We finally have a winner!  How could she forget about me?  Does that ever happen to you my friends?

Travels in the South

Living in the south, there are lots of comfort foods. But sometimes on a cold and rainy day, you want something that soothes your soul. Mom’s choice for that is grits with cheddar cheese and crumbled up turkey sausage. It’s hot, gooey and delicious. I hear your naysayers turning your nose up at grits. But let me tell you something. When done right like this, grits can be delicious! 😋

Hello sweet friends – we finally made it to Friday.  Thank goodness for that!  I just had to share my picture from this week with you.  This is me laying with mom cuddling me.  See Mr. Elephant?  That’s my new toy that mom bought for me.  He’s just my size.  He still squeaks and I keep dragging him around the house by his nose.  It’s perfect.  Can you see my eyes in this picture?  Barks with puppy laughter.  That’s what I keep telling mom too.  I need a haircut.  I think I need a spa day for sure.

Paw Time with Houdini

It’s been a long week here at the Hotel Thompson.  We’ve been having weird weather.  You know the kind that brings out all of your doggy senses.  So you get up/down all through the night to check things out because you know you gotta protect the humans.  Bacon and Hemi don’t seem to mind the weather changes.  It drives me crazy and makes my inner Yorkie come out.  So here I am all tuckered out on my ottoman in the living room in front of the fireplace.  I was bushed from getting up/down the night before.  Speaking of which, I have to share a little funny with you.  I can jump.  Don’t let anyone tell you anything different.  Mom/dad’s bed in their bedroom is now obstacle for me.  I can run and jump on that thing anytime I want.  But I found something so much better these days.  In fact, daddy didn’t believe mom when she told him until he heard it himself.  Here it goes…. mom/dad sleeping so hard in a deep sleep, I jump down to check the perimeter.  When I come back, I waddle over to mom’s side of the bed.  I will perch up on the side where she lays facing the wall and growl at her.  I call her my elevator.  With enough growling she wakes up and lifts me in the bed with her.  Of course she fusses but I know she doesn’t mind.  I call her my personal elevator.  Dad is just lucky I don’t do it him.  In fact, I think he’s jealous.  Barks with puppy laughter!  Do you do anything like this to your humans to keep them in line of who really is the boss of your crib?  Now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – enjoy and try not to cringe.

Barks – hello my friends!!  It’s so hard to find good help these days.  My mom – rolls puppy eyes – she may never be caught up again in her life.  She is so slow!  I can’t wait for her to help me with my blog.  So I grabbed the i-pad and Bacon and we got started this week by ourselves.  Bacon has been helping me and giving me lessons.  He’s a good oinker – I don’t care what dad says – barks with puppy laughter.

This week I want to give you my fellow anipals a helpful suggestion. I learned this when mom was down from her surgery and had to stay in the bed.  Often times I would stay with her to make sure she didn’t get out of bed without assistance.  But sometimes a dog has to sleep.  So I did what I thought was amazing.  I took my loudest squeaky toy Mr. Chicken and positioned him in the doorway of the bedroom.  That way if mom tried to get up without me, she would step on Mr. Chicken alerting me to wake up and assist her.  Clever huh?  So that’s my tip this week my friends – position your squeaky toys like little bombs in your  humans bedroom.  They especially love it when they step on them in the middle of the night.  Usually they jump from the squeak.  For an old man, my dad can jump pretty high in the dark.  Just sayin’.  Speaking of dad, he is taking off this week researching new jokes.  Can you believe that?  So this week, I’ll leave you with a mom joke.  You’re going to love this – barks!  Have a great weekend!

Can you tell that this picture has a look of busted with it?  Barks with puppy laughter.  What?  I was doing anything.  Honestly.  I was just having a heart to heart with my zebra toy.  His tail wanted to be yanked.  Yep.  That was it.  Would I lie?  Don’t answer that okay.  Barks with puppy laughter.  This was how I spent my New Years Day – running around the house barking at my zebra.  He never listens.  We hope you have a wonderful New Years Day my friends.  Now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.
