Noises at Night

As I lay in bed at night sleeping, I have to think about the different sounds I hear coming from outside my bedroom window.  Now that we are in the Summer months, it seems like everything is coming alive, especially at night.  So there I was last night, tucked in and waiting for Mr. Sandman to visit.  I listened intently.

I could hear grasshoppers.  One I’ve nicknamed Sensei because he is so very loud and seems to hang out right near my window to the right every single night.  It’s like he tells me goodnight.

I could hear kids laughing and yelling.  Heck it’s almost 9pm – why are there kids still outside playing in the dark?  They better be chasing lightening bugs and not chasing trouble.

I could hear the faint sounds of a radio from the people next door.  Those neighbors are Asian so the music had a chime-chime affluence.  It was soothing to me.

I could hear dogs barking – it must be that pesky little Chihuahua across the street hanging out with his posse and being bad again leaving nuggets on everyone’s front yard.

  I could hear frogs.  They sounded like enormous frogs with giant legs and deep guts.  There are LOADS of them in my magical backyard due to the creek that runs behind it.

Then the most deep sound of them all started.  It’s enough to shake our little house and it comforts me enough to rock me to sleep.  What is it you ask?  Of course, its dad snoring. ❤

What sounds do you hear at night when you are trying to go to sleep?

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks!  Welcome my friends to another weekly edition of my Paw Time with Houdini. This week I’ve learned several things here at the Hotel Thompson.  First up – I ❤ to wear clothes.  No really I do.

Some people say that anipals don’t like to wear clothes and that it’s the human that likes for them to wear it.  Honestly though, I love to wear clothes.  I mean heck, these days I feel naked if I don’t have something on.  It’s my little touch.  And one of my favorite outfits is my onesie with the teddy bear on my butt.  They are cotton and comfy.  They keep me warm and mom says that my snuggle factor goes off the chart when I’m wearing them.  Look at the picture.  What do you think?  You want a pair don’t you?  The little sleeves even cover my legs.  But don’t worry.  I can still access my kibbles and bits when nature calls – barks!

Another thing I’ve learned this week is that Mouse Girl, the purr thing, here really does love me.  I mean she fusses at me when I jump on her and play with her but deep down I know she really loves me.  When the humans don’t look, she gives me kisses.  See, I knew she loved me.  She just likes to play hard to catch.

And thirdly, I’ve been taking lessons from my Sensei Master Easy on toy destruction. I’ve struck three times this week (only two that mom and dad know about – evil snorts)!  Notice the exhibits below.  Of course, officially they weren’t *my* toys – they were the purr things.  But you know the Yorkie rules…. Section 3, Paragraph 4:  “If they put it down, it then becomes mine.”  Barks and laughs!

I think I did pretty get at operation mouse destruction.  I gutted them pretty good but actually I’m telling mommy that they blew their stuffing. What do you think Sensei Master Easy?
