Hey friends – I’m stepping in for big brother Bacon this week since he is away at Summer Camp. I hope I brought him so justice – enjoy! <3 Houdini
Dear Houdini – This is not funny. Really it’s not. My human is crazy. Can you save me please? Signed Potato in Waiting
Dear Potato in Waiting – BARKS! I gotta admit that it’s a little funny. Really think about it. How many anipals can say they look like a hot potato and you are hot. I say save the look for Halloween and go for it. You will win so many contests for originality and beauty.
Dear Houdini – I heard about your accident the other day with a pillow that exploded at the Hotel Thompson. I *know* you can relate. You *have* to relate. I was sitting on the front porch minding my own business when this cushion suddenly blew up for no apparent reason. I was just as shocked as everyone else. Signed Mystified
Dear Mystified – I know! It’s unbelievable how those things happen out of the blue – spontaneous combustion does happen. It is highly documented. I think pillows only do this when dogs are around so that we can personally take the blame. Yeah – that has to be it. Surely it’s not because of something us sweet devout pooches did. No way! I say cover yourself my friend. No camera documentation means you didn’t do it. I’m sticking to that story and you should too!
Dear Houdini – I know you are just a mere dog but let me tell you something, I’ve earned my stripes. I’m fierce. I’m strong. I’m a rocking cat that can shake your world if you don’t obey me. You just remember that about us cats okay. Cats rule and dogs drool! Signed Stripes
Dear Stripes – Barks and laughter! Wait a minute while I pick myself up from laughing and rolling around here on the floor. Cats rule and dogs drool – too funny. Okay maybe we dogs do drool when we are excited but there is no way that cats rule – sorry Hemi and Mouse Girl here. Us doggies are higher on the who is in charge chain. And your stripes – oh my dog! Really? Walk away from the sun my friend and tell me about those stripes then – Barks!
Dear Houdini – There I was sitting on the sofa from another long day of working on the farm. I was so exhausted. I had the television on for sound and that’s when I saw it. A commercial for a dating service for Farmers Only. WOW! I never knew it existed. Do you think I have a chance with a lady? Signed Stetson
Dear Stetson – YES you do. We all have chances. And how could anyone say no to a cowboy hat? Mommy says those are hot!
Dear Houdini – There is a problem with this slide. Really there is. I slide down it all of the time. But this date, I did’t slide. What the hamster world happened? Signed Stuck
Dear Stuck – Perhaps it was too dry to slide down. Perhaps you have more fluff than usual and it was a little tight? It could happen. I know sometimes my t-shirts get a little snug like that and I have to cut back a bit. And then perhaps you just need a gentle push? Call me if you need some assistance. I’ll get the jaws of life out to get you out of a tight spot. In the meantime, take it easy okay.
Remember Dear Bacon can’t happen without you my friends. Keep your letters and pictures coming to my email.
