Do you smell that? It’s been an entire year since I’ve last smelled nature like that. It’s finally SPRING!!
It’s time for the flowers to bloom. It’s time for the animals to start coming back out in the back yard and playing – I can’t wait to see my rabbits again. It’s time for me to come out of hibernation and start being more active. And you know what that means – driving mom and dad crazy with my antics at the Hotel Thompson – snort.
Are you ready for some Spring? Can you smell it my friends?
So mom goes to the store yesterday to buy a few things. One of the things on her list is deodorant. So mom goes down the aisle looking for deodorant and starts laughing. Daddy asks what is up. Mommy said told him that Secret has a line of deodorant out with fragrances from around the world. For instance, Brazil, Hawaii, Paris and she even saw one from Australia. Daddy then started laughing. I mean it is kind of funny. What exactly do these places ‘smell’ like? And by all means, if you had a deodorant from your area, do share – what would it smell like?
The other night when mom got home from the worky place, she put her purse on the floor in order to greet us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson. Well, she forgot about it when she went to go change clothes. Houdini smelled something coming from her purse. I gotta say, that dog has a great sniffer. Well me and the little guy went over to mom’s purse to check out this smell. That’s when we found it. How could you mom? How in the world could you?
What was she thinking with this so called chocolate bar – Pigs N’ Taters? Are you out of your ever lasting human mind? PIGS N’ TATERS!? Do I need to even ask where you got this and how exactly it was made? And don’t tell me you enjoy things like this mother of mine. Really? What’s a piggy to do with the findings of this exhibit? I’m thinking mom needs to be grounded. I haven’t been this humiliated since daddy brought home bacon flavored cheese doodles. Shakes piggy head and walks off in disgust.
BARKS my friends. Hope you have had a wonderful fast week. You know us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson. We *live* for the weekends. The weekends is when the mommy is at home and we can take turns camping out and getting even more spoiled on her lap. You can relate right? It is *THE* most privileged place in the house. He that has rights on the lap is the happiest for the moment.
But I have to tell you something about last weekend. Last weekend, I got to go to Nana’s. I was planned to visit Saturday and spend the night but I got to go early. You see mom got up Friday and fed me breakfast and then I got sick. Have you ever gotten sick? This was my first time and let me just say I didn’t care for it. Nope. Not at all. This puppy needs to never get sick again. The sick monster got me and things came out of my mouth that I had never seen before. I was scared. Mom was scared but she was good. She cleaned me up and the floor – barks! She then called Nana to see if I could come a day early. She said she didn’t want to go to work and have to worry about me not getting extra TLC from Nana. Let me tell you something. When I heard Nana, I was waiting at the front door for mom. I couldn’t wait!
See I spent a whole two days and two nights with my Nana. But by Sunday, I was kind of missing mom and dad. I kept going around the house and looking for them. And then, when mom had dropped me off she gave Nana her nightshirt in case I needed it to smell her. That was a fabulous idea! I found it Sunday and kept rolling in it, chewing on it. I even dragged it out the chair Nana had it in and put in on the couch with me.
When mom finally picked me up, my tail was going 90 miles per hour – mommy thought I was going to fly it was going so fast! I smothered her in puppy kisses. She told Nana I smelled so good. Nana just smiled because Nana gave me a special bath and combed my hair. I was looking fine for mommy.
So that’s my week my friends. I hope you have a wonderful weekend to come and I hope that YOU get the privileged lap at your house for some snuggles – Barks out!
Hello my spooky friends. Thank you so very much for staying with me during my 31 Days of Spook. Have you been enjoying the stories, the thrills, the things that go bump in the night? Today, we have another guest story submission. This one is from my friend Bree. Do you know her? She’s Reilly and Denny’s mom. If you don’t know them, you have so got to visit their blog. They are great. And personally, I don’t think those pooches take a bad picture – I’m just saying. Please make it a point to visit my friend Bree – tell her that Bacon sent you. This is her tale – enjoy my friends!
“When I was very little – only 4 years, we lived in London in a very old house. One morning I woke up and was very sick and feeling very scared but then this little old lady came into room and sat on the bed talking to me. She told me some wonderful stories in her soft Scottish accent and she would sing to me too – and lull me to sleep. Every morning she would come and visit. She was very small only about 4′ 5”, had grey/white hair pulled back tightly and wore a little cap like the the one Andy Capp wears. She also had a little white pipe – like the one Popeye had. She wore a long black skirt with big pockets on the front of it, big brown lace up boots and had layers of sweaters on. She smelled of lavender and even to this day I still think of her when I smell it.
My Mom came in one morning and asked me who I was talking too. I didn’t know her name so I pointed to her and said, “Grandah”. Mom looked around and couldn’t see anyone and yet there she was sitting on the end on the bed. Whenever any of my brothers or sister was sick she would appear and we always knew she was about the house because we suddenly would smell the lavender. Our Mom too smelled the lavender but never saw or knew who Grandah was until one day she showed us a very old photo of our great grandma and it was her! She had been dead for over thirty years and yet there she would come visit us when ever we were sick and we knew she would make us feel better.”
Oh dear piggy heavens. I was on mom’s Facebook page last night and came across the new Flatua Backfire. What? You haven’t heard about this new car? Are you going to be impressed. This new Flatua Backfire will look familiar. It looks just like mom’s Smart car but with a twist – snorts – and it is some kind of twist – trust me on that my friends. And hey here at the Hotel Thompson, I think daddy is ready for this.
