Paw Time with Houdini


Barks!  Hello friends.  I hope you have had a wonderful week.  A lot of people ask us about our nightly routines here at the Hotel Thompson.  I wanted to share one with you on how I go to bed every night.  It usually starts on the sofa with my mommy with my favorite night time friend.  This night time friend is special to me.  My nana gave it to me and helps me have wonderful dreams at night.  How do you ask?  Well, I had mom take a video of me with it.  Hope you enjoy!

And now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – have a great weekend!

Houdini Has Done It Now

Some of you may remember that Houdini goes regularly to the spa.  Several months ago when mom picked him up, he was nose to nose with a cute little poodle.  Mom got a phone call early last week from the spa stating that one of their customers needed to talk to Houdini’s mom.  The spa wouldn’t give them mom’s number – thank goodness – but offered to relay that message.  Mom was curious as to what was going on but called the lady.  Come to find out, it was the poodle’s mom.  She wanted to meet mom for coffee this morning to talk about a play date with Pippy (the poodle) and Houdini.  So mom/dad made arrangements to meet this morning at a local park.

Mom, dad and Houdini got to the park this morning.  Then Pippy and her mom pulled up.  As they were getting out of their car, Pippy’s mom had a box in her hands.  When they got close enough to mom/dad, they could see the box was moving.  Pippy’s mom put the box on the picnic table and mom/dad could see what was in it.  OMP!!  There was puppies in that box.  Not just any puppies.  They look liked small poodle mixed Yorkie puppies.  What the cream cheese?!  Pippy’s mom said they belonged to Houdini.  No way!  Mom said Houdini had been fixed and there was no way.  Pippy’s mom said it had to be Houdini.  Apparently Houdini and Pippy got a little romantic at the spa several months ago.  No way in pig heavens!

Well we were all shocked.  I mean who would have ever dreamed of this?  There was four cute little puppies.  Pippy’s mom wanted my mom/dad to split the litter and even offered to pay for the puppy DNA to prove that Houdini was the father.  Of course dad was laughing and said that this needed to go on the Maury Povich show for sure – LOL.  Mom gave him a look like this is *not* the time.  So there you go.  We have puppies here at the Hotel Thompson.  Pictures will follow in a couple of hours once mom gets everyone settled.

Paw Time with Houdini


OMD!  You are not going to believe what I’m fixing to tell you my friends.  I’m so excited.  Really I am.  See me all stretched out there on my ottoman?  I’m watching television.  Not just any show though.  Mom couldn’t sleep one night – go figure – so she was surfing the channels on the television and came across something amazing.  How amazing you ask?!  Out of this world amazing.  You see there is a channel specifically for us pooches.  It’s called DogTV.  Have you heard of it?  OMD – it’s amazing!  It’s specifically for dogs who are left alone during the day/night so it can help with separation anxieties.  They have different shows – relaxation, stimulation, soothing music to help your dog sleep and all kinds of other videos.  Now you are probably laughing and wondering does it work though?

Mom tried it on me the other night.  I watched.  I mean I really watched.  The color of the videos are more towards dog vision and the music is so comforting.  I actually fell asleep.  It was awesome!  You don’t believe me though, do you?  Okay – I found a short video on You Tube so I can show you.  Check it out – this is relaxation.

What did you think my friends?  Wasn’t it soothing?  I admit it.  It actually put my dad to sleep.  Barks and rolls with puppy laughter.  But it works, right?  Show it to your pooch and see what happens.  Now, I leave you with Jokes with Dad.  Hope you have a great weekend!! ❤

Paw Time with Houdini


Barks!  Hey sweet friends.  How are you doing?  I must tell you about my adventure over the weekend.  It was most interesting for sure.  Last Saturday mom went to go feed me my breakfast and guess what?  I wouldn’t eat it.  Nope.  I looked at her and sat down on the floor.  Mom knew right there and then something was wrong.  Mom’s always know, right?  She picked me up and I put my head on her shoulder just staring in her eyes.  I was trying to use my doggy psychic powers and let her know what was wrong.  Mom woke up daddy and told him to get dressed that we were going to the V.E.T.  Now, mom doesn’t think I can spell but I knew what she was saying.  And at that point, I didn’t care.  Mom kept saying she and dad were going to make me all better and I believed them.

At the vet’s office, I was the first one back for the day. I got to see my regular doctor.  Of course there was the alien probe and then the touchy feeling all over my body.  The doctor even tried to feed me and I wouldn’t eat.  Then he looked at mom/dad and said he knew exactly what was wrong.  What was it you ask?  I had a bad sinus infection in my throat.  Who knew?!  Of course it makes sense now.  I got a shot in my rump for my sick feeling to my tummy and some allergy pills.  Let me tell you friends, that shot did wonders.  We were half way home and it was like my tummy flipped and I felt so much better already!  I couldn’t help but give mom/dad kisses for making me better.  And during this pollen season outside, guess who will be taking allergy pills – moi!  I’ve had several now and I feel so good – no more sneezing for this pooch.

Now I leave you with a repeat on Jokes with Dad.  We didn’t have time to get any new ones done this week.  But never fear, I will corner dad down this weekend and got a bunch of new ones.  Hope you have an awesome weekend friends.

Paw Time with Houdini


Hello sweet friends.  Houdini here.  Or should I say Spider Houdini – barks with puppy laughter!  A couple of weekends ago I was getting ready to go to the spa.  I picked out my Spiderman hoodie to wear… cause you know I’m a tough guy like that.  I mean heck look at my face.  Wouldn’t you be shaking in your shoes if you saw me coming?  Of course you would ❤  And see, mom says I was shaggy so I had to go to the spa and get groomed.  I didn’t get upset over that – she tells daddy the same thing sometimes – HA!

And speaking of daddy – I now leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Enjoy my friends and have a great weekend!

Paw Time with Houdini


Hello sweet friends.  I hope that you have had a fabulous week.  I’ve been doing what I enjoy most – stretching out on some comfy blankets and sleeping… you know in between the other important things in my life like eating, more sleeping, playing and of course more sleeping.  Hey, a dog has to have plenty of rest to protect the home.  And you know it’s hard work trying to make sure the daddy stays on top of things here at the crib while mom is off at the worky place.

And when mom is at home – especially on the weekends – she has been doing a lot of cleaning and what she calls decluttering.  Sometimes I just want to tell her to sit down and take a nap.  Really, she looks like that cartoon character that’s always buzzing around.  This will end soon, right?  Dad calls it nesting.  I call it deranged.

So with that being said, I leave you today with Jokes with Daddy.  I hope you enjoy my friends and have a great weekend.  Remember to get some rest!

Paw Time with Houdini


 Hello sweet friends!  How was your week?  Ours here at the Hotel Thompson are getting back to somewhat normal now.  I’m telling you, last weekend mom came so close to losing her mommy mind with the delivery guys.  We learned an important thing here about mom.  She has been walking enough now that you don’t mess with her ‘regular’ days of walking.  It kind of gets on her last nerve as she referred to it to daddy.  Now we can look back at it and laugh at some things – which I still say daddy should have video taped but didn’t.  For some reason having a southern gal lose her patience was kind of funny to me, daddy and the other anipals here.  Mom laughs now – thank goodness!  Barks with puppy laughter.

Tomorrow I’m going to the spa.  I can’t wait!  I need some tender loving massages on my back and butt.  What?  Don’t you like massages too?  I don’t mind the bath or the dryer if I can get my massage.  They feel so good on my back.  Hey, it’s hard work barking and protecting the Hotel Thompson from people that don’t belong here… you know like the postman, the UPS guy, the Federal Express guy and especially the delivery guys.  I told mom all she had to do was put me on the floor and give me five seconds with the washer/dryer delivery guys.  I would let them know how unhappy we were for waiting.  But mommy said no.  Spoilsport.

So my friends, I leave you today with Jokes from Daddy.  Hope you enjoy and have an awesome weekend!!
