Paw Time with Houdini

Oh sweet friends – it’s almost Christmas – barks and runs around freaking out.  Can you believe that?  Santa is going to be here next week.  I’m beyond excited for several reasons.  One – gifts!!  BARKS BARKS BARKS.  Second – that pesky Don Juan will be GONE for another year.  He has been really up to no good this year here at the Hotel Thompson.

But last night, I had a dream about him.  It wasn’t bad – it was a happy dream.  I dreamed that I finally caught him!  Okay maybe not all by myself.  But he was caught.  Okay let me tell you about my dream.

My dream might have had something to do with the fact that we watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer last night.  And it might have had something to do with the beef barbeque that mom fixed for dinner.  Okay, Okay, I’m getting ahead of myself.

In my dream, it was me and Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster – see I have a special place in my heart for Bigfoot and Snow Monsters.  We are super friends.  There we were in the woods and it was snowing because hey that’s where Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster lives right.  Well, we had a fire going and we were telling stories and having a grand time.  That’s when that Don Juan showed up wanting to bash the party.  Snorts – yeah he was the highlight of the party all right – barks with puppy laughter!  How do you like your barbeque elf – rare, medium or well done?

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

Barks and squeals was what was happening this week here at the Hotel Thompson.  In fact, we were *all* so excited.  We received a package from the other side of the world – barks!  It came from our friend Fozzie and the gang – Dinnermintz, Pickles, Forrest and Doc.  Of course, daddy made us all wait until mom got home from the worky place to open the huge box.

But when we did – I think mommy squealed almost louder than any of us.  Look at that beautiful picture in the upper right hand corner and the stunning post cards – oh my puppy heavens – mommy actually jumped for joy and danced around the kitchen.  Aren’t humans weird?

Then all of us anipals got things from the package and we took off to explore with them – Bacon got some delicious apple chips (daddy says they were good – he ate one you know for product control review).  I got a delicious chew stick – barks!  It was delicious!!  The purr things got some treats.  And daddy got a cookie from that awesome Yorkie tin – beautiful!!  Then afterwards, we all played with squeaky pig – not Bacon my silly friends – the pink piggy in the picture.

Fozzie you did way too much!  We thank you so very much and now mommy can work on the project she has planned for those beautiful post cards 🙂

Oh and I told you we played with the pink pig – here’s proof that we LOVE it.

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

Oh my friends – I’ve heard of something new here this week at the Hotel Thompson.  Okay, it may not be ‘new’ per say but we were having a conversation about it here.  What is it?  FRUITCAKE.  We all got involved about fruitcake.  Let me show you a picture I found:

Look delicious?  This is how we feel about here at the Hotel Thompson.

Hemi:  I wouldn’t bury it in my litter box.

Mouse Girl:  Whatever – it means nothing to me.

Bacon: I’ll eat it.  I love it!

Mom:  Unless it’s been soaking in alcohol, nope not interested.

Dad:  It makes a great door stopper.

Me:  Look at all the pretty colors!

Now your thoughts about fruitcake.  Yay or Nay?


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

Hello my sweet friends.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  I know we did here at the Hotel Thompson.  Heck, it was just plain awesome having mom home from the worky place.  Did we eat too much here?  Barks!  Nah – do you believe that?  It was like an all day food paradise.  We had a blast!

And today – what do we have planned for today?  Aaww – I have plans for me – for Petsmart.  All of those toys – All of that food – All of those treats.

I think I can get mom to go… I think.  I’ve left so many notes laying around the Hotel Thompson.  I even hid all of my food and clothes to make her think that I have nothing left.  That way, she thinks I need everything STAT.

And the other anipals, they gave me their lists of what they want and need.  So, I’m good.  I think they are going to persuade mom/dad too of a much needed trip to our toy store… I mean Petsmart.  Wish us luck my friends.

Oh and to keep you held over, mom/dad did buy me a toy a couple of weeks ago.  Oh my dog!!  Mom says that I might love that toy a little much.  What do you think?


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

HA – BARKS!  Mommy said that this was the cutest tail that she has even seen – barks with puppy laughter.  Sorry Bacon and daddy – I gotta cute butt – what can I say?!  Okay I have to admit that in this picture, daddy had my upmost attention.  You can tell by the way I’m standing – the position of my cute tail and my one ear standing up.  Daddy was actually giving me a treat.  Just ignore dad’s holey shirt – barks!  Mommy says that his around the house shirt only.  And you know, this pooch will take as many and any kind of treats he can get.

And Bacon take notice of my t-shirt.  HA!  I know – I know.  I probably should not have gotten it but it was so darn cute.  And I gotta pick on my bro – if I don’t, who will, right?  Okay maybe Hemi will by slapping him on his hiney with his huge paw – now *that* is something I never get tired of watching.  Talk about amusement here around the Hotel Thompson.

And today is an awesome day my friends.  Do you know what today is?  I mean more than just being the obvious Friday?  Today is the last day at work for my mom.  She starts her holiday when she leaves work today.  YES – DO A LITTLE DANCE – HAPPY DANCE.  Nine entire days with having mommy at the Hotel Thompson.  I’m so excited I may wee myself!

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

WHO do I need to talk to my friends?  This weather is horrible.  It has been raining so much that I’m not sure which of us is more done with, me, mom, dad or Bacon.  And to top it off, it’s cold.  Not freezing cold but chilly willy for this little camper.  I’ll tell you a secret of how cold it is – come closer – some days I don’t even get out of my onesie – that’s how cold it is.  Can you imagine?!

And one night this week, mom came home from the worky place and was cold and tired.  After she put on her onsie, she cuddled up on her chaise to relax.  I drug my lobster bed all the way from my bedroom to the fireplace.  Then I jumped on the chaise with mom to watch the fire.  She laughed cause she was like all of that work and I’m going to sit with mom now?  Nah, I’m a smart doggie.  I was letting the fire from the fireplace take the chill off my bed and make it all nice and toasty for me.  See, who’s the smart one now huh?  After a few minutes, I went and got in that toasty bed.  I was so snug and warm!

Hopefully, it’s suppose to be a pretty weekend here – cold but no rain – so maybe I can go out with mom/dad for a ride.  I feel a field trip to the local pet store coming on for me.  I haven’t destroyed any pillows in a while – barks!

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

Awesomesauce – yep I said it – AWESOMESAUCE.  Last week I told you that I think I was going to the V.E.T.  Remember?  Well I was wrong – barks!  And that’s a great and wonderful thing.  Nope, mom and dad took me for a walk in my stroller instead.  Now that I can deal with any day of the week.  We went up the street to a football stadium and we walked all over the parking lot.  Mom said it was for exercise for her and dad.  I was good with that.  I got pushed around and enjoyed the sun and air outside.  And did I mention the people we ran into that went all goo-goo all over me?  That was awesome!  Mom/dad thought I needed some time with them outside.  Afterwards, I played in my back yard for a while with Bacon.

I have an admission to make this week.  They say that admission is the first step to owning up to something that you did.  So here it goes.  I’m a pillow chewer.  Sigh – it’s out there now.  You see, I’ve destroyed three pillows off of the couch.  Not all at one time.  Oh no, that would be wrong.  I took my time one pillow at a time.  You see they have zippers – zippers that are all shiny and calling my name.  So when dad doesn’t look or pay me any attention, the pillows attack me.  I have to protect myself, right?  So I chew the zippers out.  One.pillow.at.a.time.  Mom is not happy to say the least.  She said that she is going to have to sew those pillows without zippers.  And don’t think I didn’t get in trouble.  I did.  Mommy ignored me and put me in timeout.  Can you imagine that?  Being ignored with no cuddles?  Mom told me she loved me but destroying pillows is a major NO-NO…. especially she said when I have so many toys.  Shaking puppy head.  I was wrong.  I know that now.  So my friends, what can I do to get back on mom’s good side?  Suggestions?

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

Paw Time with Houdini – Spooky Video Attached

Barks my friends!  Another week gone and tomorrow is the BIG day – HALLOWEEN!  We can’t wait.  We are going to celebrate the way mom did when growing up.  We are all going to bundle up in the big bed with popcorn and watch scary movies.  I think we are all excited just to be together.  I’m sure we will all be snoring before the first show ends – barks!

But I did dress up in my costume.  Our local pet store had a dress up party and I went last night.  It was so much fun!  I got to strut myself around in my Captain America outfit and be a Super Hero for a while.  They had puppy treats and treat bags for anipals that I got to bring home.  Score one for the little puppy huh?  This is a picture that mom took of me in my outfit.  If you look closely, I’m smiling and you can see my teeth.  Dad says I’m Captain America but mom says with those two front teeth showing, I could be VAMPIRE Captain America – BARKS!
 Mom/dad say we have lots of errands to do this weekend.  One of those errands they say I have to go with them.  The way they said it, it didn’t sound good.  I’m thinking this weekend might be the V.E.T. thing they keep spelling out around me.  They don’t understand that us anipals know these key important words that they like to spell.  I’m hoping I’m wrong about the V.E.T. but the way daddy keeps saying it with a grin in his voice, I don’t think so.  I’ll keep you posted.

And my friends, I have a special treat for you today.  All of us anipals and even the rock clan have been working on a project to help end 31 Days of Spook.  We put together a little something and we hope that you enjoy it my friends.

Barks!  Well friends there was a lot going on here at the Hotel Thompson this week.  Let me run them down for you –

First – mom weighed in last weekend.  She is down a whopping 12 pounds!  She weighs in again tomorrow.  I’m hoping that the scales are still going in the right direction for her – DOWN.  Isn’t that awesome?  And she hasn’t lost her temper and beat dad up for some chocolate yet.  That’s a lot in itself – barks!

Second – I have my monthly groomers appointment tomorrow.  I’m excited on one paw but upset on the other paw.  You see, mom wants me to be all pretty and everything – that’s a given.  But she also wants me pretty because next weekend is the dreaded yearly shots.  Can you believe it’s been a year already?  You know what the vets visit means?  I better get extra treats because I’m going to be violated.  That’s what that means. Pouts.

Third – Bacon has been really pounding his keyboard on his laptop this month in getting his 31 Days of Spook out.  We all hope that you are really enjoying his blog postings.  He has worked hard on them.  The other night – he even scared himself.  It was hilarious!  And I’m not sure if you have noticed, but me and the pig have a journal on line now that we are keeping.  Thanks to our good friends Easy and his Staff, they got us started here.  We hope that you visit it and read about the inside makings at the Hotel Thompson.

And lastly, I got in trouble this week here at the Hotel Thompson.  Can you believe that?  Me in trouble?  You see, I was sleeping with mommy on her chaise.  Mouse Girl climbed up on daddy and wanted some loving.  Let’s just say it didn’t go well from there.  But that Bacon – he videotaped it all.  Busted I was!  Hope you enjoy the video.  I guess mom was right to put my t-shirt on that day that said, “It’s all about ME!”

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

Hello my dear sweet friends.  Another week has come and gone.  Have you had a great one?  The weekend is what I live for here at the Hotel Thompson.  That’s when mom and dad are both home and I can get extra loving in between Mouse Girl, Hemi and Bacon.  But don’t worry about me, I find me some loving for sure.  Like in the afternoons when mom gets home from the worky place.  Guess who gets to go to the mailbox with her to get the mail.  This puppy.  That’s right.  Mommy takes me to the mailbox with her.  There’s all kinds of weird smells out there for a pup like me.  I just sniff at the wind while being carried of course.  Barks – did you think I walked.  No way?

Mom is also down a week on her 8 week challenge.  She and dad are doing 8 weeks of eating straight – no sweets/sugar and mom has given up her soda for that time.  Now that is a HUGE challenge right there in itself.  She only drank soda maybe once a day sometimes two but there’s a lot of sugar in a can so it’s gone and hello water – lots of water.  Tomorrow ends week 1 and only 7 weeks more to go.  They will weigh in officially tomorrow.  I’ll keep you posted next week about mom and how she is doing.

Mom got a picture of me and dad doing what we do best this week.  As you can see, I’ve been working out too – look at those muscles – barks with puppy laughter.  If you look down the hall, you will see the red of my lobster bed.  I spent a while pulling it out of my bedroom and that was as far as I got.  It wore me out and I had to take a power nap with daddy.

 

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