Paw Time with Houdini

Welcome my friends to another week of Paw Time with Houdini.  Let’s talk a little about life.

Sometimes you have to stop in life.  Just stop and breathe for a bit.  Relax a little.  Enjoy your being… your environment.  Know that you are safe.  Know that you are loved.  Know that you are cared for.  Let yourself go and know nothing will happen to you.  You are safe.  You are held and loved.  Your humans would never let anyone or anything harm you in any way.  Sometimes that is the best sleep.  Laying on your mom’s chest.  Hearing her heartbeat matching it to your own.  Thump.thump.thump… slowly and solid hearing her breathe and feeling it on you.  Sighs…a happy life.

Paw Time with Houdini


 Okay admission is the first step.  Mom has stepped over the line.  Is it sanity or insanity?  She kept telling daddy that she ordered some ‘special’ pillows for the living room chaise.  Dad was like whatever okay.  But mom continued to say they were ‘special’.  Well they came in and I guess they are special.  They look somewhat familiar.  Of course I’m under strict orders not to touch them, look at them or go near them.  What kind of pillows are they if I can roll all over them, right?

Of course mom was oohing and awwing and telling daddy all about them.  I just say give me five seconds with them… alone.

Do you have ‘special’ pillows that you aren’t allowed to touch?

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

Awesomesauce – yep I said it – AWESOMESAUCE.  Last week I told you that I think I was going to the V.E.T.  Remember?  Well I was wrong – barks!  And that’s a great and wonderful thing.  Nope, mom and dad took me for a walk in my stroller instead.  Now that I can deal with any day of the week.  We went up the street to a football stadium and we walked all over the parking lot.  Mom said it was for exercise for her and dad.  I was good with that.  I got pushed around and enjoyed the sun and air outside.  And did I mention the people we ran into that went all goo-goo all over me?  That was awesome!  Mom/dad thought I needed some time with them outside.  Afterwards, I played in my back yard for a while with Bacon.

I have an admission to make this week.  They say that admission is the first step to owning up to something that you did.  So here it goes.  I’m a pillow chewer.  Sigh – it’s out there now.  You see, I’ve destroyed three pillows off of the couch.  Not all at one time.  Oh no, that would be wrong.  I took my time one pillow at a time.  You see they have zippers – zippers that are all shiny and calling my name.  So when dad doesn’t look or pay me any attention, the pillows attack me.  I have to protect myself, right?  So I chew the zippers out.  One.pillow.at.a.time.  Mom is not happy to say the least.  She said that she is going to have to sew those pillows without zippers.  And don’t think I didn’t get in trouble.  I did.  Mommy ignored me and put me in timeout.  Can you imagine that?  Being ignored with no cuddles?  Mom told me she loved me but destroying pillows is a major NO-NO…. especially she said when I have so many toys.  Shaking puppy head.  I was wrong.  I know that now.  So my friends, what can I do to get back on mom’s good side?  Suggestions?

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

Hello my sweet friends.  It’s been a couple of weeks since my last check in here from the Hotel Thompson.  We are ALL so glad the renovation is over here.  It was amazing and I hope you enjoyed seeing all of the before and after pictures as well as mom’s breakdown of the different phases.  I tell you that mother of mine is a scheduler… and a juggler.  She kept us all on a strict schedule.  Have you see the television shows where they don’t show the home owner the after until it’s finished?  That’s what mom/dad did to us anipals here.  We all got shipped up the street to Nana’s to spend the night the day of the floor installation.  The last thing we remember is the carpet and linoleum.  So that Friday after the furniture was delivered, mom came and got us from Nana’s.  OMD!  Once we got inside of the Hotel Thompson, us anipals couldn’t believe it!  It was so new and different.  We all thought we were at the wrong house for a bit.  So many different changes.  We anipals went around and of course had to check things out and mark our territories.  So many new things to try out!

Then it happened.  Mom told us that we had to be careful of the new flooring and furniture.  And of course, daddy put the baby gate back up blocking us from the kitchen.  That baby gate is because of Bacon – don’t tell him I told you that.  That pig – rolls doggy eyes – he knows how to open the freezer so he can’t go in there anymore.  Since he can’t go in there, we can’t go in there.  Of course, the cats jump the fence but I’m too little.  But when I did get to go in the kitchen to check things out – WOW!  I ran and ran and ran around that kitchen island so many times that I got dizzy.  It’s so neat!

And of course my favorite piece of furniture is the couch.  All of those big puffy pillows – I was in pooch heaven.  My personal challenge is to see how many I can knock on the floor before mom/dad realize what I’m doing – barks!  And mom’s chaise – WOW!  That thing is like a bed for a queen – which my mommy is – 🙂  She keeps this comfy Chinese blankie on it that she wraps up in when she is on it.  The other day, I jumped up with her.  Yep – see the picture.  It was so comfy!  And are you wondering what my shirt says?  It’s one of my favorites – of course my brother Bacon doesn’t like it but I think that’s what makes it even funnier.  The shirt says, “I like bacon on my bacon”.  Funny huh?

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

On the Road with Bashful!

OUT AND ABOUT WITH BASHFUL… the rolling stone

 

 

 

 

 

Hello my friends.  This is Bashful, Bacon’s pet rock.  I’m continuing today with my series of “Out and About with Bashful… the rolling stone.”  Earlier in the week, you found me on my field trip to Wally World, better known to you as Walmart.

 While in the store, I got to ride this wonderful thing called a buggy.  It was wonderful!  Mom/dad got on to me a couple of times because I was so excited that I almost jumped out of the buggy like a Mexican jumping bean.  They fussed at me for reaching out and grabbing things off of the shelves.  I couldn’t help it!  It was so neat in this Wally World.  I’ve never been to a store before in my life. 

I found some really cool and comfy pillows.  Mom let me give them a test ride for comfort.  They passed with flying colors all the way around.  I mean hey, what better way to suck up to mom than to try these suckers out, right?  I know… I know… another pebble in the swear jar.

I couldn’t make up my mind which one I liked better.  We spent a lot of time in the pillow department going back and forth trying each one out.  20130430-105538.jpg

I wanted dad to help me out but he said that I was the rock for the job on this one.  So I bounced and bounced, wiggled in and got comfy.  What do you think?  I couldn’t just pick one.  Dad said he would ponder the decision while we were in the store looking around.

This place Wally World has everything!  So much under one roof.  It was simply amazing.  They told me that if I continued to be good, they would let me ride a pony.  What?!  They have ponies here too?  I was in shock… and a little excited.

So, I did what every smart rock would do.  I settled into the buggy, enjoyed the ride and looked forward to my pony ride.

And you know what?  They came through.  I got to ride a pony as you can see in this picture.  It was by far one of the highlights of my trip.  This pony made noises and moved back and forth and everything.  I could barely hang on without getting bounced right off of it.  It was all that this pet rock could wish for!

 

Well, I hope you enjoyed my trip so far.  There’s so much more to share with my outing at Wally World.  I hope you look forward to my next series.  Have a fantastic weekend my new friends.

Toodles – Bashful

My Mom’s Sense of Humor – She Still Has It!

Some people might have this kind of pillow perhaps lying around for fun.  You know the graphic of a little innocent outline of a pig with remarks about where is what for food.  Shakes my piggy head… just awful I tell you.  I mean I know I am walking food but do you have to leave a map to my dissection around the house – snort.  You really don’t need to give such ideas to visitors or to that purr thing called Hemi that stays here at the Hotel Thompson. 

 

 

At the Hotel Thompson, mom has this kind of pillow lying around.  I think personally it makes for a better environmental talk of peace.  And, it’s all about how I really am on the inside.  You just have to look close and know that I am nothing but 100% loveable snuggable Bacon. 

Which pillow do you prefer?  XOXO – Bacon
