Shark Week

Silly daddy!  He’s so out of tune.  Shark Week starts 07/22 – not in a couple of weeks.  Where would daddy be if I didn’t keep him in touch of these things?  And I just want to know… in the video – who is going to get the shark?

Shivers – Shark Week

Oh shivers!  This week it has been Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.  We have watched a lot of the shows.  Shows that highlighted when sharks attack.  Shows that highlight guys/gals going down in the ocean in shark cages feeding sharks by hand.  Shows that highlighted HUGE sharks.  Shows that highlight sharks that bit people and showed the bites – shivers.

Then if that wasn’t bad enough, mom got a wild hair over the long weekend and decided to watch ALL of the Jaws movies.  Really mom?  Not just the original Jaws with “We’re going to need a bigger boat”, but all of them – Jaws 2, Jaws 3 and then Jaws Revenge.  Shakes piggy head.  Snorts – but us anipals stood by her side and watched with her.  Double evil snorts – I even called Houdini Shark Bait.  Now *that* was funny.

After this week of watching all of these shows, I had a dream about surfing.  It was a nightmare!   There is no way this little oinker is going anywhere near the beach.  Heck, I may even rethink getting in my piggy pool or the bathtub for that matter!

Have you watched any of these shows on television?  Any favorites? Any experiences of seeing sharks in real life?  Have you seen them at the beach?

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon –  There I was swimming around in my home.  You know, minding my own business and keeping to myself.  That’s when I saw this shark bait hanging out in a flimsy cage.  Ha – as if those cages are shark proof.  Shaking my head.  When will the humans learn, right?  Anyway, I was swimming and I saw this human with a camera thing taking pictures of my home.  Then the human did the weirdest thing.  He took one of those selfies that are all the rage over the internet.  Well, you know I thought I would help him out and swam up behind him at just the right moment.  By the looks of his eyes, I think it surprised him.  In fact, I’m pretty sure it did.  The water got cold in our area for a few minutes – ha!  Signed Sharky

Dear Sharky – Oh.my.piggy.heavens!   Dude, I would pee all over myself if you did that to me too!  In fact, that’s where us anipals are smarter than the humans.  There is no way we would put ourselves in these situations.  Shaking my head.  Nope, not at all.  That is one selfie he will not forget anytime soon for sure!


Dear Bacon – My master thinks this is a joke.  There is no joke here.  Just wait until he falls asleep which he has to do at some point.  Just wait.  What?  You aren’t laughing at me too.  Are you?  Putting a peach in front of me and saying there is more fuzz on said peach than my body is a cruel joke.  Just wait until a position that peach near his person.  Will see if his girlfriend thinks it is a joke.  Signed Evil Kitty

Dear Evil Kitty – WOW.  You don’t play do you my friend?  My dad says that this is called Game On and the master gets what he gets for doing something like this to you.  I would love to see his face… and his girlfriend… when you peach him back.  Talk about impeachment.  Snorts with piggy laughter.


Dear Bacon – See my friend sometimes one has to take help when it’s needed.  My girlfriend called and said she was home alone.  Rather than run the 3 miles to her house, I caught a ride in the back of a sweet dumpster truck.  They never saw me and never knew they had a hitchhiker.  Just remember fellow anipals, take help where you need it!  Signed Hitchhiker to the Galaxy

Dear Hitchhiker to the Galaxy – SWEET my friend.  What a brilliant idea to come up with in a time of need.  Of course that would be awesome to hitch a ride to get to your girlfriends house.  Hope you got there quickly!  Take care my friend and remember next time to buckle up!


Dear Bacon – I have made a grand mistake.  Darn this birdseed!  There I was looking at the pretty seed and it was calling my name, “Squirrel come eat me.”  I ran to the top of the cylinder and looked into it blessing my lucky day.  That’s when this stupid bird came up and pushed me over the edge.  Now, I’m stuck in my prison.  It doesn’t matter if I eat all of the seed or not.  I’m stuck until a human sees me in my lockdown.  Why me?  Signed Squirrel in Solitude

Dear Squirrel in Solitude – Darn that bird!  Sometimes they can be so pesky.  I say this first hand seeing some birds in my magical backyard picking on you squirrels.  Wish I was closer.  I would certainly get you out of your predicament.  Hope you weren’t there too long.  It was definitely a catch 22 – you are near the food but trapped at the same time.  Then again, don’t eat too much.  You might not be able to get out!


Dear Bacon – All it took was this one picture for my human to see and pass out.  I thought it was simply brilliant.  Really I do.  By quickly glancing at the picture, did you also think I was broken in half?  I got you, didn’t I?  HA – Barking my head off.  I think this is priceless.  Call me a magician for sure.  Signed Sawed in Half

Dear Sawed in Half – I have to admit it, you got me.  At first glance, I thought oh my goodness this dog is broken.  Even my dad saw it and thought the same thing.  Awesome job in fooling everyone for sure.  You should enter this in some kind of contest for sure.  Thanks pal now keep it together – snorts with piggy laughter.

Dear Bacon

   Dear Bacon – What the cream cheese is going on here?  My master – he gave me this cute little contraption that had me playing with it for hours at a time.  Then one day, a crack in its matter happened.  The next thing I knew, the toy jumped on my face and wrapped around it.  What the heck?  Signed Clash of the Toy

Dear Clash of the Toy – Well, on one hoof my friend you look like a character for the new Star Wars movie.  🙂 That’s gotta be kind of creative and fun right there alone.  Maybe your owner could take you to opening day and show you off – you would probably get lots of cuddles, pets and perhaps some popcorn?  And what do they say… if it fits you must commit – snorts with piggy laughter.

.


 Dear Bacon – I just want to show you that with the presidential elections coming up, I’m putting my paws out for a front man that I can stand beside.  Someone that just screams my name.  Someone that has maybe a better come over than I do.  Someone that you can mention their name by just looking at me.  What do you say little pig – can we count on your vote?  Signed Make America Great Again

Dear Make America Great Again – You know my friend, I’ve heard of that motto before.  Okay maybe not personally but I’ve heard it on presidential breakdowns from the past.  For some reason, I just don’t think it means the same as what you are making it out to be.  But hey what am I to say, right?  When you stand behind your candidate, you really go all out!


Dear Bacon – I am not amused.  There i said it.  NOT AMUSED. There I was just swimming minding my own business.  Believe it or not, I wasn’t even bothering the humans who were by the way in my water.  I just kept swimming.  Then one of the blokes whose leg I was swimming in/out of had the nerve to reach down and pick me up like I was a mere puppy.  For real?  Doesn’t he have anything to do besides pick on us little folks?  And just as a reminder to him, I will remember his scent.  Cause you know when I get bigger, it might be ME picking him UP out of my waters if you know what I mean.  Signed Bruce

Dear Bruce – I think I would have passed.  I mean really.  You are nearly as long as me and way bigger than the little guy here Houdini.  And you are right.  He was in your waters – in your backyard if you will.  He should have known better.  Don’t take what he did out on all humans.  There are some really good ones out there.  You just go and be nice to peeps okay.  No hard feelings right?


Dear Bacon –  Bath time is always awesome at my crib.  I go back and forth in/out of the tub getting all of my minions lined up around the tub.  Then my mom gets my bubble bath ready.  That’s when I get in the tub and have my meeting with my minions just letting them know how they have been doing and what is expected of them as my ‘toys’.  It’s a great meeting that I highly recommend every couple of weeks – you know to keep everyone in line.  Signed Minion Master

Dear Minion Master – Hey dude, that is an awesome idea.  Having meetings with your toys to let them know what you expect of them.  Brilliance.  I never thought about that.  I think I will put that into plan here at the Hotel Thompson STAT and let my toys know exactly who is in charge and of their play schedule.  Thanks my friend – happy bubble bath!


  Dear Bacon – Sometimes when days get you down and it seems like life is on one continuous downfall, you have to take matters into your own paws.  I had one of those *weeks*.  I went to my favorite bar and told the bartender to hit me with a double shot of leche on the rocks.  Then I sat there and purred my problems out for the guy.  I tell you something oinker – those bartenders, they know how to listen.  After getting it out and off my chest, I felt so much better.  Signed Puss in Boots

Dear Puss in Boots – Hey my friend, sometimes you just gotta let it go – get it off your chest – sing to your people and let things go.  It sounds like you did all of that and you are on the right pathway to enlightenment now.  Don’t keep it in my friend.  That leads to bigger problems down the road.  Now I’m thinking a double shot of leche sounds awesome myself.  Cheers!


REMEMBER my friends.  Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send me your pictures and letters via my email.

Paw Time with Houdini

Welcome my friends to another great week of Paw Time with Houdini.  This week has been awesome – isn’t every week?  Of course, it’s been busy too.  Last weekend, we had a family meeting and Bacon was advised that he is going to summer camp.  Now I thought it would be cool but Bacon is so against it.  That oinker really doesn’t like nature does he?  He has tried every excuse and had one-on-one meetings with mom and dad trying to wiggle himself out of the situation.  But it’s not going to work.  Mom is insisting on him going to Summer Camp – seven entire days in nature.

This week also ended Shark Week.  And you knew it was coming, didn’t you.  Mom was going to dress me up like Shark Bait.  I knew it.  So finally, she got my costume out and put it on me.  Rolls doggy eyes.  I let her get one somewhat potential photograph.  I just wasn’t feeling it.  That outfit was H.O.T.  Did I mention we are in the south here and it is H.O.T.?  It is.  So she got a quicky picture.

There is a hat that actually comes up over my head and it has little slits for my ears to poke through.  She had me all fixed up for like five seconds when she put me down in the ‘waters’ of the hardwood floor – Barks!

But anyway, she got a little picture to submit to Discover for Shark Week.  Don’t I look mean and ready to eat you up?!  Okay maybe not.

.

I also had Doggy Daycare this week and got to go up to Nana’s house.  Bacon tried really hard and persuaded me to talk to Nana about his situation.   He doesn’t believe me but even Nana said that it would be good for him to be away from mom/dad and be with others for Summer Camp.  They are really pushing this.  I’ll be honest with you.  I kind of feel sorry for the guy a bit.

But back to doggy daycare.  This was the day that I go to Nana’s.  Me and the other pooches at Nana’s get the works.  Danielle the groomers comes out to the house and gives us all special time in her R.V.  We get baths, massages, blow drys, cuts, nails – the entire works!  Then I get to hang out with Nana, Tinkerbelle and Dingo until mom picks me up when she gets off of the worky place.  Also me being at doggy daycare, this gives daddy his day to get the big stuff done at the Hotel Thompson.  You know, washing the bed sheets, changing the beds, getting dinner ready, mopping.  Things he supposedly can’t do with me under his feet.  I don’t know what he means by that.  I’m just there helping.. right?

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

Mom and dad said they saw one at Tybee Island, Georgia a couple of  years ago.  Shivers – I’m glad it was them and not me.  I don’t wanna be shark bait.

Very Funny Daddy – Real Funny

That daddy of mine – he’s just a real charmer.  Or should I say treasure as in someone needs to bury him – snorts.  This is his idea of my ‘great’ pool.  Do you see it.  Do you really?  Look in the middle of the pool, downward, there you go.  Now you see it?  Daddy said that I didn’t give him any specifics of what said pool could contain.  Really funny daddy.  What that sweet loving daddy of mine doesn’t understand is that I have many friends here in blogville.  Get em’ friends! 🙂
