This is me friends from last weekend. I was worn out. Not from running, playing or chasing Hemi or Bacon. Nope not anything fun at all. I had just gotten back home from the three lettered bad place – V.E.T. Before I go further, let me discuss something with you humans. Us anipals know how to spell. You don’t have to spell V.E.T. We know that is the place that we all despise. I mean really. Buy us a drink first. Get to know us if you will before you violate our captains quarters. I’m just saying and I think I speak for everyone on that private matter. So on this date, I was visiting our vet for my yearly shots. How those yearly shots get here so fast! Being a Yorkshire Terrier, I can admit that our breed is a little… how should I say it….nervous about these things. Yeah, that’s the perfect word. So before I get my shots and the doctor feels me up, the staff usually gives me a little Benadryl to cut the edge to calm my inner Yorkie down. So there I was one shot of Benadryl in my rump and I am chilling in my dad’s arms. And might I add, I didn’t bark, whimper and growl at that shot. I was a good boy. So there I am chilling and the lady doctor finally comes in. Mom/dad and the doctor are talking and the doctor tells daddy she is going to take me away from him for a couple of moments. Now comes the good part. As the doctor reaches out to get me, daddy barks and growls at her! Seriously – the dude growled and barked!! Rolls with puppy laughter. For an older lady, the doctor sure did jump pretty high. I was greatly impressed. Of course mom fussed at daddy. I just laughed and got excited for a few minutes…. that is until I saw the doctor going towards my captains quarters. I ended up getting two more shots – again with no barking, growling or whimpering. I was a good pooch mom said. So good that I got to go by the pet store on the way home to pick out a new toy. Daddy on the other hand didn’t get a toy because of his growling/barking.
Hello sweet friends – we finally made it to Friday. Thank goodness for that! I just had to share my picture from this week with you. This is me laying with mom cuddling me. See Mr. Elephant? That’s my new toy that mom bought for me. He’s just my size. He still squeaks and I keep dragging him around the house by his nose. It’s perfect. Can you see my eyes in this picture? Barks with puppy laughter. That’s what I keep telling mom too. I need a haircut. I think I need a spa day for sure.
It is not safe letting my mom/dad out by themselves. Shaking my piggy head – it really isn’t. Mom/dad decided to go to the local pet store to look around to see what was new. Mom found the biggest pile of poo she has ever seen. I mean what left this? Bigfoot? She was telling daddy about it and they were snickering like two teenagers while people were passing them by and looking at them like they were crazy. Houdini was in the buggy and just rolled his eyes, he was so embarrassed. He wanted to tell people passing them that there was nothing to see there… it was just typical behavior of mom/dad. Can you see how big this poo pile is? What would you think if you saw something like this in real life? OMP – I can’t breathe right now. Go my friends. I’m listening. What would you think?
Barks! Hey my friends. Hope your week is going awesome. Last weekend, I spent some time at the Spa. Someone here at the Hotel Thompson told me how much fun it was to go in our magic backyard and roll in mud – I’m not mentioning names but we all know who oinks and snorts in these parts. Well, I did. And guess what. That mud sticks to your fur in places it doesn’t need to stick if you know what I mean. I didn’t find it fun at all. Mom let me out just for “a few minutes” she said and then came back to a mud caked Yorkshire Terror– her words not mine. She was taking me in that day anyway to the Spa. I just wanted to make sure they earned their money when they gave me my oatmeal bath. See, I was helping mom out, right?
I came back home later in the day and mom had bought me a new toy. OMD! That toy is the bomb. It’s my favorite this week for sure… well at least today. You roll it, squeak it and it lights up. OMD – I played with it until I wore myself out. I had mom take a video to share it with you my friends. I hope you enjoy it and Jokes with Dad. Have a great weekend and remember to roll in some mud ❤
Barks! Oh friends – how was your week? Mine was just barky wonderful! I want to show you a new toy that I got last weekend during the great Snowmageddon here in the south. It’s a Bark’s Woof Beer bottle. It’s made of hard plastic and has a squeaky toy in the bottom part of the bottle. It’s the cutest thing and mom/dad fell in love with it when they saw it in the store. They just knew I would love it – don’t you?
They brought it home and gave it to me. Oh my doggy heavens! You should have seen me dragging it around the Hotel Thompson, squeaking and playing with it. It was a blast! Mom took this picture of me on the couch. I actually fell asleep with the bottle in my mouth. Mom said I couldn’t hold my woof beer. Barks with piggy laughter!
This month, we are focusing again on embarrassing moments. There is so many things that our humans do that is embarrassing – it’s sometimes hard to pick just one for sure. But don’t worry, this month we are blasting daddy again… snorts with piggy laughter. It’s what I do – what can I say?
Many years ago, mom/dad chartered a boat to themselves and went deep sea fishing. The Captain of the boat happened to be a woman that mom/dad knew and they always had such a blast together. So there they were about 50 miles from the shore having a great time. Daddy is fishing away loving every minute of it while mom is talking to the ocean gods and feeding the fish if you know what I mean. That’s when it happened. What you ask? Well dad started reeling in to catch a fish, pulled back on his pole and the shorts he was wearing fell down around his ankles. Now several things happened. Mom rolled hysterically and was of absolute no help. Captain Elizabeth stepped in hiding her laughter to take charge. She looked at daddy and said, “You want me to pull up your shorts or take the pole?” Dad of course said take the pole, laughed and said thank goodness he wore underwear.
Hello my dear friends. Don’t you just love Bacon’s Show and Tell? This month, we are focusing again on embarrassing moments. There’s just so many things that our humans do, right? Well this month, let’s highlight the really embarrassing moments. Did they caught in public doing something? Did they get caught speeding in a hilarious situation? Let’s do a blog and spill the guts on the humans – Snorts with piggy laughter.
Mark your calendars for Friday, October 28th to join Bacon’s Show and Tell. Remember to link back to my blog – See you here!
Oh sweet friends I’m so excited. Last night when mom *finally* got home from work (which is another story all in itself), she had a package in her hands. AND said package was made out to me – the oinkermaster. I was so thrilled and excited. I was running around oinking.
Mom knew I was excited. I guess that’s why she tortured had to change her work clothes first before the unwrapping.
Squeals with piggy excitement! When she unwrapped the box and took out the contents, I had to roll around on the floor snorting and having a great time. It was awesome. Why? You see the package was from my brother Easy across the pond.
I have to tell you something my friends. He is like the bestest brother evah! Not only did he remember my birthday, Houdini’s birthday and earlier Hemi’s birthday, he remembered mom/dad’s anniversary that is coming up in a couple of weeks ❤ I tell you that touched all of our hearts with the love he sent our way yesterday. Brother you and your staff are the tops!
And I have VIDEOS! First I have to show you a little toy that Easy sent to Houdini. It’s a little toy from of course Toy Story – snorts with piggy laughter. The irony in that – a toy from Toy Story. Well, it’s cute as a button. Houdini absolutely loved it. AND mom took a video of giving the little tyke his toy. See video 1.
Then mom continued in the box and found another present. A special present that we adored. Daddy swiftly inserted batteries and mom found a special place for Pinky (that’s what we named him) on our book shelves in the front room. This way we can constantly see Pinky and think of our friends. Now Pinky is motioned sensor. Mom took a video of him too. And wait for the ending… you might hear some snorting. See video 2.
UPDATE! Dad got up this morning and fed all of us while mom was getting ready for work. After Houdini got done eating his breakfast, he decided to put all of his training from Easy to work. Well friends, I think Houdini has learned from the best. What do you think? I hope this makes you proud Easy! Yep, that was the toy from Toy Story. It blew up all over mom’s ottoman. Snorts with piggy laughter!
Welcome my Friends to August – Bacon’s Show and Tell
This month we are talking about that ONE thing that you had growing up that impressed your life all of these years that you still think about it? Something that maybe perhaps you still have somewhere put away in your home? Something that when you look back at and think of the times you had with this ONE thing that it makes you smile so wide and your heart just glows?
Today I want to talk about one of mom’s things that has touched her all of her life. Something that she has kept and would never do without. See this little dresser – three deep drawers with foxes/bears on the front. This little dresser has been in mom’s life close to 46 years. You see, shortly after mom was born her daddy built this little dresser for her. And mom has kept it all these years.
It has lots of dings and scratches and some of the stickers on the front are even starting to come off. But still mom has it and wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. It sits in my and Houdini’s room and we treasure it too.
In fact, currently it is being used to store all of Houdini’s clothes. So you can kind of say that it’s second generation now doing it’s thing. ❤
Mark your calendars my friend. Bacon’s Show and Tell is scheduled for
Friday, August 26th, 2016.
Let’s talk about childhood. Is there ONE thing that you had growing up that impressed your life all of these years that you still think about it? Something that maybe perhaps you still have somewhere put away in your home? Something that when you look back at and think of the times you had with this ONE thing that it makes you smile so wide and your heart just glows?
This is your day my friends. Join us this month for Bacon’s Show and Tell to talk about that ONE item.
