Paw Time with Houdini


Hello friends. I hope that your week is going well.  Finally we all made it to FRIDAY.  I think that Friday is probably one of the most favorable days of the week – you think?  And this weekend is going to be awesome!  Mom is not working and her/dad plan on spending a lot of time here at the Hotel Thompson which means plenty of LAP time – barks with puppy excitement.  I think mom/dad plan on getting some holiday activities started and in the plans –  so maybe I can help with lending a paw or something.  You never know, right?  I’ve heard mom say that she needs all the help she can get.  Well, never fear – here I am to save the day.

I want to show you a new shirt that I got this week.  I think it says everything perfect, don’t you?  HAHAH

Are you ready for the holidays?  Last year was my first Christmas but I was just a baby and I don’t remember much.  So this year, I’m really looking forward to the excitment of meeting the big jolly guy we called Santa Paws.  Mom/dad say that I might even get to meet him.  That sounds way too cool.  Have you ever met him?  Please do tell me about it.

But today, I leave you with daddy… yep that crazy daddy of mine. Enjoy my friends and happy weekend!

Santa Paws Came!!

SANTA PAWS CAME!

20121219-065235.jpg

He’s real!  Santa Paws came to the Hotel Thompson to see me! Oh my – thud – I almost couldn’t stand it. I’m in hog heaven here at the Hotel Thompson! 

This is a list of what I have at the house now and trust me I am so happy – I haven’t had this many goodies in a long time!

  • 8 pounds of red apples – that’s right.  It’s not a typo – 8 POUNDS of red apples.  I love me some apples… any kind, any color.
  • 5 pounds of carrots – yep that’s another one – 5 POUNDS of carrots.  You would think that with all of the carrots that I eat that I would have excellent vision but I don’t.  But what I don’t have in vision, I make up in smelling.
  • Bulk celery – mmm – I love celery… even the little wisps of it that hang off at the top of celery.  Love that part!
  • Cabbage – that is one HUGE head of cabbage.  Mom will probably eat some of this cabbage too.  But do you know what the battle is going to be?  The core of the cabbage.  Me and mom both like to naw on the core of the cabbage.  Have you ever done that?  It’s got a little spice to it and so delicious!
  • My personal sized watermelon.  This is definitely a treat since it’s winter time here in Georgia.  Mom will cut it all up and put it in buckets in the refrigerator to get it cold.  She even cuts up the rind – I love the rind.
  • Bananas – You don’t see them in this picture because mom forgot to grab them.  She got me a whole bunch of 10 – 10 bananas all to myself.  Pig heaven – literally!  Can you believe that one time mom was holding a banana and I tried to crawl up her legs to get it?  Yeah, we had a little prayer meeting about that afterwards.  They are so delicious!

And we can’t forget about Houdini – OMP!  Houdini scored with some new clothes, a new bed and all kinds of doggy toys.

And the purr things Mouse Girl and Hemi – they are in love!  They got some nip, toys and a huge bag of treats.

And we all got our own electric blanket.  Can you believe that?!  Mom hooked it up over one end of our sofa so that her and daddy can click it on and off.  That way we can all lay on it and get cuddly warm – we all love that.

But you know what we got that was priceless?  Love.  Not just from mom/dad but from all of you our friends.  We can not thank you enough for that.  We all ❤ you!!  And we thank you all for the emails and Christmas cards that you sent to us here at the Hotel Thompson!

And special thanks to Easy ❤ who sent us these awesome presents:

  

And special thanks to Fozzie ❤ who sent us these awesome presents:

 

.

And special thanks to our dear sweet friends Kali and Shoko – ❤ OMP – their parents sent mom/dad something close to their heart – FOOD – snorts with piggy laughter.  Okay it was a gift card for FOOD – my daddy still passes out looking at the card.  He can’t wait to use them.  Thank you so very much my friends!  Can’t wait to see you soon.

And squeals!!  This just in.  We received this in the mail yesterday from Auntie Sharon.  A beautiful handmade scarf.  But this scarf has a story behind it.  The actual “yarn” was shorn from Fozzie’s sheep.  Then Auntie Sharon spun it on her spindle and made “yarn” for our scarves.  How special is that?!  I can’t say thank you enough.  I was so touched and absolutely LOVE it my sweet friends – smooches and thank you!!

Santa Paws Came !!

20121219-065235.jpgSANTA PAWS CAME!

Nana came to the house yesterday bringing me some gifts from Santa Paws. Oh my – thud – I almost couldn’t stand it. Mom forgot to put my bananas in this picture but it gives you an ideal of Nana brought me. I’m in hog heaven here at the Hotel Thompson! Isn’t Nana the best?!  She is so meant for spoiling this already spoiled pig.  She’ll tell you that too – I am S*P*O*I*L*E*D rotten.  But aren’t all children meant to be spoiled and loved?

 

This is a list of what I have at the house now and trust me I am a happy little runt pig.  I haven’t had this many goodies in a long time!

  • 8 pounds of red apples – that’s right.  It’s not a typo – 8 POUNDS of red apples.  I love me some apples… any kind, any color.  Can you believe that I smelled these out last night and found where daddy had put them in the kitchen.  Mom had to put them in the refrigerator to get them away from my smeller – snort.
  • 5 pounds of carrots – yep that’s another one – 5 POUNDS of carrots.  You would think that with all of the carrots that I eat that I would have excellent vision but I don’t.  But what I don’t have in vision, I make up in smelling.
  • Bulk celery – mmm – I love celery… even the little wisps of it that hang off at the top of celery.  Love that part!
  • Cabbage – that is one HUGE head of cabbage.  Mom will probably eat some of this cabbage too.  But do you know what the battle is going to be?  The core of the cabbage.  Me and mom both like to naw on the core of the cabbage.  Have you ever done that?  It’s got a little spice to it and so delicious!
  • My personal sized watermelon.  This is definitely a treat since it’s winter time here in Georgia.  Mom will cut it all up (like she did last night) and put it in buckets in the refrigerator to get it cold.  She even cuts up the rind – I love the rind.  She gave me a whole slice last night.  You know what I did to it.  I bit into it and then took off down the hall to my room to eat it and enjoy it.  Mom chased me down with a towell and held it for me while I ate it.  Then she cleaned everything up for me. 
  • Bananas – You don’t see them in this picture because mom forgot to grab them.  She got me a whole bunch of 10 – 10 bananas all to myself.  Pig heaven – literally!  Can you believe that one time mom was holding a banana and I tried to crawl up her legs to get it?  Yeah, we had a little prayer meeting about that afterwards.  They are so delicious!

So you see now why I love my Nana.  She also brought mom and dad a whole bunch of food too.  Between Nana and my Aunt Tina, our fridge and cabinets are nice and full of food.  I’m a happy camper because this makes my mommy happy.  She doesn’t have to stand in the kitchen and wonder what she can pull together any more.  Now, she opens the fridge/freezer/cabinets and says, “MMMM – everything looks good, what to have, what to have!” 

20121219-092028.jpgOOOOHHH, and mom brought me home a ball.  She was telling one of her friends about me getting a bouncy ball.  They brought her one and can you believe it has a pig on it?!   They call this pig Olivia. I still don’t understand why all of my toys have pigs on them?  Shakes head and wonders…  Here’s a picture of my new toy.

You’re probably asking yourself how do I play with this ball?  Well, I push it around with my little snout everywhere in the house.  Nana says that snout of mine gets me in trouble.  She would be right.  I push this ball down the hall, up the hall, on the walls, in my room and chase after it.  Can you believe that the purr things were trying to play with me last night.  They would push it to me and I would snout it back to them.  It was kind of fun.  Momma says that she is going to video tape it next time because for once in my life, she didn’t have her camera handy.  Imagine that!

Happy hump day my friends – XOXOX Bacon

You Know it’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

20121217-085038.jpg

Happy Monday!

You know it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas when you start seeing animals all decked out in their holly.  I’ve gotten a few pics sent to me and I think it’s hilarious what their parents do to them.  I *know* mom wouldn’t do that to me…. you are listening right mom?  Don’t come near me with those blinking antlers again, evah!  LOL snort

I thought I would share a few pics that I’ve gotten recently.  And you know, I don’t have a lot of memories from last year because I was still a small little oinker but now that I’ve gotten bigger, I’m loving it!

Can you believe that people actually bring their pets to see Santa Paws?  Mom asked me if I wanted to go.  Really?  Me the spoiled pig that I am.  You think I’m going to let Santa Paws hold me?  I don’t even let daddy hold me. 

 

Mom is another story but really?  Plus I’m sure there will be a line and I’m not good with waiting.

These babies are priceless though in their pictures.  I do have to admit that.  I hope you enjoy these and have an awesome Monday!!

 

XOXOXO – Bacon
