Spotlight Thursday – Meet Mr Phoenix

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!


Name:  Mr. Phoenix des gray mice des graviers

Age:  4 months

Location:  Brittany/France

Web/Blog Page:  Mr. Phoenix

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Honestly? I thought they are strange somehow. While they waited for me,  the woman (aka the mama) had one of the Sphinx cats of my breeder  on her shoulder and awwed and ohhhed how beautiful that cats are. The man (aka the da)d played with the old bull terrier lady of my breeder and they both were so distracted that I had to bark before they noticed me.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  As I wrote my name on the floor… and on the bed, the carpet, the car, the chair and the sofa…then my ink tank was empty but I made enough things to my own to call it my home, right?

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   As I bit my dad in his sniffer, he screamed like a girl and that was a shocking moment for me, I tell ya… I mean a 6’11” – guy with a voice like Barbie? That is scary.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  My Dad. He is so fabulous in-consequent… so a lot of impossible things are possible.   I only have to wait till he is distracted with torturing the keyboard :o) Butt mostly I’m a mom-boy, I stick on her like glue. I sleep on her head and I’m always with her… even in the bathroom.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  They think I’m a baby. Well, technically I am a baby…but I’m a Weimaraner and a Virgo, so there is no reason to turn into a howl-i-copter… and there is no reason to park the Weimaraner on the pad of shame… just saying…



Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Changing…

Yawns.  What was that noise?  What woke me up?  I lay here in my bed and stretch.  Oh my – either my legs are getting longer or my bed is getting smaller.  What is up with that.  Surely I can’t still be growing.  

Oh yeah…what woke me up?  I opened one eye and looked around.  It’s still dark in here.  Surely it was just my imagination.  That’s when something strange happened.  I had this strong urge – kind of like an internal clock ticking to wake up mom for breakfast.  What?  When did that start happening?  The urge was strong too.  I opened the other eye, sat up and stretched.  Okay – this has to be a dream.  Where the heck am I?  I let my eyes adjust to the darkness and looked around.  No wonder my feet kept hitting the bottom of the bed.  What is this – a toddler bed?  Where am I?  This is not my bedroom.  I look over at a wall – what does that say?  It’s a picture of a pig wearing cow house shoes and states “Moo Shoe Pork Palace”.  Que diable?!

Again, the strong urge to wake up mom.  I don’t wake up mom like this, especially before the birds start singing and it’s still dark outside.  But for some reason the pull is strong to my bedroom door.  That’s when something so weird happened.  I opened my mouth to bark and it didn’t happen.  Instead of a bark it was a squeal and an oink?!  What in the world!  

A few minutes later, my bedroom door opened and I heard a voice say, “Thanks Bacon, time for breakfast.”  Okay, something weird is going on.  First, a cheerful voice telling me it’s breakfast time?  But the voice called me Bacon… then again who cares because they mentioned food.  

I take off down the hallway and stop in my tracks.  What?  Where are my stairs?  There’s nothing here but a long hallway.  I go into the living room and look around but my nose tells me there is food coming from the kitchen.  I poke my head into the kitchen and walk through sniffing.  That’s when the voice tells me, “Hey Sunshine.”  I tell you, I had to look around.  Who is Sunshine?  I’m Easy.  That’s when the voice puts down an amazing looking array of food – eggs?  Oh yeah – I like this room service.  Eggs with spinach and some kind of nuggets.  I quickly snarfed it down and looked up. Now to think of it, the call of nature is like calling big time.  I was at the point of crossing my legs by this time.  Can’t this woman see the whites in my eyes floating?  I need to use the facilities BIG time.  I walk through the kitchen and see the back door.  I brush up against it and plead to this woman.  Finally she gets the drift.  “Oh Bacon, you want to go out and play this early?”  No woman – I need to PEE – let me out – let me out – let the weimaraner out!

I run out the back door and almost fell down the stairs of the porch.  Where am I?  This isn’t my backyard.  Although it does look magical – what is that over in the corner?  Is that a squirrel?  I gotta go meet him and I take off running towards him.  Can you believe the guy doesn’t move.  It’s like he knows me or something.  He even talked!  “Hey Bacon, how’s it going this morning?”  Who is this squirrel?  Before I could say anything he further said, “Well have a great day pig, I gotta go work on some important holidays for your blog.”  What?  Who does he think is, Journalist Rocky the Squirrel – barks atcha my friend.

A talking squirrel – now I’ve seen everything.  I shook myself, marked some territory and went back to the door.  What the heck did I eat last night to give me these illusions?  Those mushrooms had to be psychedelic mushrooms – yeah that’s it.  Remind me to never eat those again – ever!

I went back inside and the woman said, “Time for snuggle time” and kept looking at me.  What?  You think I’m a trained pup or something?  Darn this body – where are these guttural movements coming from?  Before I could stop myself, I jumped up in this woman’s lap and started oinking.  Shaking my head.  I gotta stop eating after 8pm.  It definitely had to be the mushrooms last night?

After a while, she said she had to go to work and did I want my television on in my bedroom?  What a television all to myself in a room all to myself.  You have got to be kidding.  Now this part of the nightmare I could get used to… snorts – I mean barks.  I gotta get my barky thing checked out.  I’m going back to bed.

Something is definitely wrong.

But before I could go back to bed, this man appeared all magically delicious and said, “Hey Bacon, you want a snack?”  What?  I tell you at least my dreams have great room service.  The man gives me this piggy plate full of goodies.

Okay – what is up with this?  I mean there’s all kinds of bacon and piggy stuff.  Sure I know my brother across the pond but why give this kind of stuff to the weimaraner?

If anyone figures out this freaky stuff, please let me know okay and thanks!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Easy

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to our first edition of SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this new series!

Name:  Argentia Mists Easy Rider

Age:  6

Location:  Brittany/France

Web/Blog Page:  Easyweimaraner (Be sure to pop over and say hey – remember to tell Easy that Bacon and Houdini sent you.)

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I have to be honest, right? Well… ok… my first thought was: they look simple, that’s easy going…

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  As I entered my bed… I had to place humans on efurry side to make sure that I will not fall out, but that was the moment I was at home.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  As I swallowed the brother of Sponge Bob, the infamous kitchen sponge… fortunately I could remove that guy via emergency exit and the two dogtors could pack up their knives.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?   I think both, but in a different way. My dad is my best friend but a rival too. So we always have to duke it out, that I’m the king of this castle and that this mom there is MY mom. And speaking of mom she knows that I’m the boss and therefore we have no hierarchy battles.  I’m her best friend, no if’s no butt’s,  butt that’s exhausting sometimes….

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  They sometimes overestimate my abilities. Yes. I’m eggs-tremely smart and YES I’m a Weimaraner. And that means I’m the dog with the human brain… so how shall I know things they don’t know? To err is human counts for me too :o)

 

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend Easy – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
