31 Days of Spook – Dismemberment

Oh my friends – didn’t you get a chill just reading that title – dismemberment?  It does bring me shutters thinking about it.  You see this is a story that read about and heard on television.  I couldn’t believe my piggy eyes and ears!  I was shocked and ran to tell mom/dad.  They were in awe as well.  

There was a man that lived in Tennessee.  Back in November of last year, he and his wife had a huge fight.  Things didn’t end well.  The fight escalated and the guy ended up killing his wife, dismembering her and putting her in their freezer in the garage of their house.  There she was for two days.

During those two days, the man kept thinking his wife was coming to him in his dreams about what happened.  He finally went and checked the freezer and she was alive!  They had a long conversation and she was telling him how much she loved him.  He was crying when he called 911 to come out and help her.

The police arrived to the house.  When they went into the garage, there was no way the woman could have been talking to the guy – she was dead and had been for several days.  Did she come back to seek her revenge?

31 Days of Spook – The Wood Pile Devil

Welcome my friends to the first day of my 31 Days of Spook!  We love this time of year here at the Hotel Thompson.  It’s one of my busiest months trying to keep all of you my friends in blogville just at the right amount of teeth chattering, sitting on the edge and being scared of your own shadow.  I hope that you stay with me all month and enjoy my 31 Days of Spook.  Today, I start off my tales from a special scary story from my brother Easy.  What exactly was seen that can not be unseen in the middle of the night?  Read the story to find out and be sure to let Easy know your thoughts.  Now, lock the doors and shut the windows… you might even want to turn on a light – boo!

It happened many moons ago to the boyfriend of my mommas friend. That boyfriend had a granny who lived in a small village behind the 7 mountains near Nowheresville. Every year in Shocktober, the people there celebrated a kind of a harvest festival, called Kirmes.  That year, the guy invited his girlfriend and my momma to visit that fest and his granny agreed to let them stay over night.

They celebrated with the people of the small village and the booze ran like the Niagara Falls. After they were well filled, my mom and her friend walked to the home of that granny, placed the empty popcorn buckets next to their bed and fell asleep, while the boyfriend found no end and was glued to the beer-fountain.

In the early morning, they woke up by flashing lights and hullaballoo in front of the house. It was caused by the boyfriend who called the police…

BECAUSE:

As he went home plastered like the yellow brick road, he saw a movement next to a wood pile on the yard of his granny. And he swore by the sun and the moon and the stars and by all brewsky of slice earth that he saw the face of the devil what peeked around that wood pile. He could describe every part of the devilish face and he gave the pawlice all details that they could make a fabulous composite sketch.

Butt the pawlice was eggstremely farouche and they refused to start a dragnet operation. They brought no dogs and hey refused to pulverize the woodpile with machine guns and silver bullets nor would they throw grenades on that pile – Come on pawlice! That’s denial of assistance in an emergency case… and hey, that’s YOUR CHANCE to save the world from the evil.

Sadly the pawlice wasn’t keen to earn endless fame and famousness and after some dingy comments about barflies and drunkards they left the crime scene.  And that pawlice actually had the nerve to send a bill for the pawlice operation… 170 bucks… for nothing.


Yes, I know… if more alcohol than blood runs in our veins, it happens that we see “things”… but this guy was scared to death and he was sober with fear immediately. And also the next day he swore that he saw His Diabolic Majesty in the furs… and even as my mom met him by chance some years later, he told her the same story… and he swore again that he saw the devil….

We don’t know what or whom this guy saw that night, but with his detailed description I made an identikit, just in case you walk home once from a harvest festival …
VIOLA… here we have it …

Paw Time with Houdini


 Hey my friends – nope you are right – It’s only Thursday – Barks!  But there’s a lot going on with my blog tomorrow so I wanted to jump in here a day early.  Last weekend, I went to my spa day.  I absolutely ❤ spa day.  I get my bubble bath and trim.  And the most important thing – I get fawned over by all of the ladies while I’m there – that’s what I’m talking about!  When mom came and got me, I was walking around in the back of the shop getting my love on with the staff.  The owner opened up the door to the grooming part of the shop and said, “Houdini, your mom is here.”  I came walking to the front and saw mommy.  Then I took off running to her.  I love my new spa place.  They are totally awesome!

What’s more awesome then spa day?  The days that daddy takes me to the big bedroom and let’s me wake up mommy for the worky place.  OMD!  Those days are so much fun.  Do you wanna know what it looks like from mom’s perspective?  I can show you – it’s a little dark but Bacon helped me set up the video in the big bed just for this video.  And thank goodness we put it in slow motion.  If not, it would be over before you knew it!  Hope you enjoy it my friends – happy early weekend!

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

Domestic Violence – A Word from Mom

Sometimes you hear about something on the news that totally blows your mind away.  Some of you may know, we watch a lot of paranormal shows here at the Hotel Thompson.  That’s something that intrigues us.  In watching these shows, you get to know some of the people that you see.  And with social media the way it is these days, you even get to chat with these people from time to time.  You may not have met in real life but like people here on the blog or on Facebook, you become friends.

Mom spoke to one of these friends a couple of weeks ago when she posted that she and her husband were separating.  Of course, we never know the circumstances from any marriage, behind any closed door or what takes place between a couple.  You don’t throw judgement, you support the decision and try to help.

Yesterday morning, the estranged husband kidnapped his wife and held her hostage in Nevada.  There was a police stand off and SWAT was called to the scene.  The husband not only ended up killing his wife and himself, there was also a third person whose name has not been released yet.

This situation has just touched my heart so hard and I had difficulty sleeping last night from thinking about it all.  After doing some research on line, I saw that there was some difficulties in the relationship since earlier this year and one or the other was charged with domestic violence on two different situations.  It still doesn’t make sense why it needed to come to this.  What did it solve?  You have the family and the public/fans of the couple just questioning why?  It makes sense if you are having difficulty in a relationship to move on and give each other some breathing room.  Why did it have to escalate not to 1 but 3 deaths is just unimaginable.

Friends and visitors to my blog, if you are in a relationship with domestic violence, please get help.  Don’t stay.  Don’t be a statistic.  Call the National Domestic Violence Hotline.  I know that’s easier said than done.  And I know that none of us know the exact circumstances to this case and that there are always two sides to every story.  But please get and be safe.  Life is too short and precious.

Paw Time with Houdini

Another week down my friends.  It was a busy week with mom/dad’s anniversary and Bacon’s birthday but it was a fun week.  Bacon has also been busy getting ready for his 31 Days of Spook in October and of course mom has started her DIEt again for the gazillionth time – rolls puppy eyes.  Do all women go through this?  Please tell me yes – barks!

The weather here has started getting cooler.  Bacon is loving that.  I myself am not sure.  This six pound body gets cold like you wouldn’t believe.  A couple of nights, mom has made a fire (by flipping the switch – barks with laughter).  I crawl up in her lap on her chaise to feel the heat and watch the flames.  That is the life my friends.  And don’t you love my shirt?  I got it just for Bacon to pick on him.  He’s not too fond of it for some unknown reason?  Maybe because it makes my butt look small?

Oh, and this is hilarious.  When mom/dad came home Sunday from their night out, guess what happened?  The toilet decided it didn’t want to work anymore and wouldn’t flush.  Isn’t that awesome?  So mom had to go the local Home Depot store to pick up what she called a flapper.  I wouldn’t let her out of my sight so guess who got to go with her?  Yep that would be me.  I was her assistant. So we went together.  That place is cool.  The smells are funny but there was so many people that wanted to pet me and oohh and aaww over me.  Of course, I ate that up!  I was the main attraction in the plumbing aisle.

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

   Barks my friends!  What a busy past couple of weeks we have had here at the Hotel Thompson.  So much going on with mommy.  She is really trying to feel better these days and has been to the doctor a couple of times.  It has a lot to do with the weather changing and getting a little bit cooler.  It’s really messing with Mr. Arthritis.  He seems like such a mean person.  I wish I could meet him.  I would bite his ankles for what he does to mom and dad at times.

I gotta tell you a story about someone I did meet this weekend here at the Hotel Thompson – right in my living room too.  There I was playing around in front of the fireplace.  That’s when i saw this other pooch staring at me.  Do you see him in the pictures below?  What the barks was he doing in *my* front room and how did he get in.  I stopped what I was doing, stared him down and barked like crazy at him.  But oh no, he kept hiding in the fireplace – what a wuss!

I sat there and waiting patiently – of course throwing in some growls and barks.  Then mom saw me and asked me what was going on.  Then she told me something amazing.  She said it was me in what she called a reflection in the glass.  OMD!!  No wonder that dog looked so handsome – it was me!  Barks – Barks – Barks

Paw Time with Houdini

Happy Friday my friends!!  Hope you have had a wonderful week.  We are all trying to get back to ‘normal’ or whatever that is around here at the Hotel Thompson.  I know mom has had a tough week so this morning I showed her some one-on-one time with me.  I know that *always* brings a smile to her face.  And better yet, I played with one of my new toys that I go this week.

Let me introduce you to Binky.  And shaking head up and down, it’s exactly what that is – a doggy pacifier.  Can you belief that?  Of course, this one squeaks to the high heavens and can wake the neighbors it’s so loud – barks!  I think that’s why I like it so much – it’s loud.  Mom has re-thought buying it several times – well that’s what she has told daddy because of the noise.  One night, I played with it making noises for 45 minutes straight.  It was a grand old time.  All the way through watching Jeopardy, I thought mom/dad would say something but they never did.  What parents huh?  Cause I tried really hard that night to get on their last nerves but it never worked.  I think I may be losing.  Perhaps I need some tips from my doggy friends – any suggestions?

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks!  Hello my friends to another weeks edition of Paw Time with Houdini.  This week I have lots to share with you.  This week I got to go to work with mommy!  Let me tell you – that is some fun stuff.  All week long she kept telling me that one day this week she would bring me.  Every day, I kept waiting at the front door.  Finally the day came.  She got my “work” shirt out and changed my clothes.  Then, it was off to the worky place!

But first, we went through a local drive thru for some breakfast.  When they saw me in my “work” shirt, they asked if I could have some nuggets for breakfast.  Mom said yes and they gave me my big boy breakfast too just like mom’s.  It was so cool.  I gave them a high five and then we went to worky place.  Of course, I came in and made it be known that I was on patrol now – no more games today – barks!  I ate my breakfast and made some rounds with mom.  Peeps kept talking about how skilled I was.  I would walk around with mom and when she stopped to chat, I would stop at her feet and sit.  They said I was ‘trained’.  I say I gotta act right because I like coming to the worky place, right?  Every once in a while, mom would make sure we did our rounds, took potty breaks and checked in with everyone.  You know – just to make sure everyone was behaving – barks.

And then when I wasn’t on patrol, I crawled up on mom’s desk to help her out.  You know with counting and typing and keeping her organized.  It’s a hard job but someone has to do it, right?  She got a lot done this day because she had my toes to help with her counting.

I also helped her make her phone calls, type correspondence and gave it all my paw of approval.  After a while, more of her co-workers came in and checked me out.  They were all taking a break later and went into the huge garage area to play some b-ball… you know basketball.  I asked mom if I could go too and she let me.

   It was a great time!  I got to run with the big boys and practice my dribbling.  I even shot a ball off the rim… of course with some assistance from one of my teammates.  Who says little dogs can’t jump.  Look for me soon in the NBA my friends!

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