Today I have a question for you. You see this house off in the woods. It’s raining something fierce. You need shelter because you don’t have a raincoat let alone an umbrella. The storm is getting worse and now lightning is ripping across the sky and thunder is booming and echoing in the woods. So the question is my pretty’s – do you go into this house for shelter waiting for the storm to pass? Oh and let me add a little twist to the equation. This house is reputed to be haunted. So what do you say? Are you up for a little adventure my friends?

For Bashful’s birthday on Friday, mom/dad took him out to a local restaurant that has really awesome southern food. He said that he was in desperate need for great food.
I tell you – in some ways that rock eats better than I do here.
In this picture, you can see that he ordered beef tips over rice, macaroni and cheese and sweet potato souffle. Talk about southern comfort food huh? Bashful said it was totally delicious and that he even licked his plate clean. That’s my boy!
When Bashful came home, me and him had a heart to heart about some of his travels and his plans for the future. That’s when he told me something that I couldn’t believe. I think I actually fell over because it was totally unbelievable. He told me a secret that I was shocked – astonished – I couldn’t fathom it to be true. So I did what any piggy would do. I ran to my mommy.
Mommy! Bashful told me X-Y-Z. Is it true? My mom got this silly grin on her face and said, “It could be.” WHAT? I tell you I cried. I literally cried like a little baby – look at this picture!
What the piggy heavens? My friends. You are so NOT going to believe this secret. I’m dying to tell you but I can’t. But Oh My Piggy Heavens. You will absolutely WET yourself when you find out what it is. Shaking my piggy head. It’s like a dream come true.
So until I can tell you, you will just have to sit and simmer and hope that I don’t spontaneous combust from excitement.
Snorts – you see this is a funny story. There comes a time in a little doggie’s life that he needs a bath. Some things are instilled in a pet’s mind that he knows what is coming. This is one of those times. I got to watch from the sidelines and took some pictures… and of course snorted a couple of times here and there. You know because of the little guys antics. He can really be funny when he wants to be.
See first there was the, “Houdini come here it’s bath time.” As soon as I heard those words, I knew it was on for some fun times. See, I don’t run from bath time. I enjoy bath time. I think it’s fun to stomp my feet and blow bubbles in the water. Houdini on the other hand, he likes to be a clown.
He ran around the front room hiding. In fact, you can see him in this picture. He thinks since you can’t see his face, you can’t see him… regardless of the point that his wahoo is in the air – snorts with piggy laughter. What a clown huh?
But it gets better. I ran into the bathroom where mommy was headed once Houdini was caught. Once caught, he was fine. He cuddled and played and licked mommy. That’s when I noticed it in the bathroom. You are asking what pig – what did you notice?
Look at this bottle and what is marked – here you go:
“Remember to eliminate all escape routes and in advance (a tip: once your pet is slippery wet he or she is suddenly smarter and faster than you are.)”
Oh my goodness – who writes these instructions? I want to high hoof them – it’s great! It’s fantastic. It made me oink! It made mom oink…. okay maybe laugh or chuckle or maybe snort.
But all is good afterwards. Look at the cute little poochie now. All squeaky clean. Sparkly if you will.
And if you look a long time at the picture, it starts to look like Houdini is smiling. So maybe… just maybe… I’m not the only one who enjoys a nice bath.
What do you think? You think he enjoyed the bath?
Oh and I have to give it to the little guy – excellent choice in hide and go seek. Butts up anyone? Snorts with piggy laughter.
Happy 31 Days of Spook my friend.
I’m glad to see that you are surviving this month with me. Today I have a question for you. You see this house off in the woods. It’s raining something fierce. You need shelter because you don’t have a raincoat let alone an umbrella. The storm is getting worse and now lightening is ripping across the sky and thunder is booming and echoing in the woods. So the question is my pretty’s – do you go into this house for shelter waiting for the storm to pass? Oh and let me add a little twist to the equation. This house is reputed to be haunted. So what do you say? Are you up for a little adventure my friends?
Piggy coming through – don’t mind me daddy. You just keep playing that Angry Bird game thingy that keeps you so entertained. No problems here – nothing to see. Just a piggy coming through around your back region. Don’t worry. I usually don’t get on your sofa – wanted to check it out.
Just checking for crumbs or anything good to eat up here. I see the purr things doing this and thought I would try. To tell you the truth. I don’t know what the big deal is. There is nothing up here. I mean zip. But that’s okay. I licked the sofa arm a couple of times to make sure. Don’t freak out if it’s a little wet. It’s just a little bit of my piggy saliva – no biggie. It will dry – I’m sure of it!
I’m going to jump down now off of this arm. Maybe if you tie a rope around me, I can bungee jump. Nope – you’re too busy? Okay mom – put that camera down STAT and get.me.down.
It’s time to start building the ark and gathering animals two by two. It has totally been raining, thundering and lightening lately like you wouldn’t believe. And, the bad thing – the roof at the Hotel Thompson has sprung a leak in the front room.
Daddy was sitting all innocently on the couch watching television when the sky opened up. He felt a small drip and looked up to the ceiling. Then it hit him right between the eyes. A small innocent little drip. That’s all it is right now… small.
Mom gathered up a bucket and stuck it underneath the wet spot. There is now a colorful blue tarp on our roof preventing the damage even more.
I heard mom/dad talking about it and it doesn’t sound good. With all of the storms lately, they are calling the adjustor to take a look. I’m keeping my hooves crossed that the damage is minimal and easy to fix.
