Good Day Shout Out

20120612-094538.jpgSome people still ask me how I start my day.  I start my day by being the best little piglet in the world and waking mom up for work at 6:30AM sharp during the week (I let her sleep in until 8:00AM on the weekends – snort).  In nature, a piglet will ‘call’ for his mom when he gets hungry.  I consider my adopted mom my mother so I ‘call’ her for food.  There’s nothing like waking up early in the morning to your very own screaming alarm clock for breakfast… at least that’s what she tells me.

Mom feeds me breakfast in my favorite piggy plate <<see picture upper right hand corner.  I usually eat a mix of piggy pellets and cheerios – have to be heart smart.  A lot of people already know this much but I bet you didn’t know this.

While me and mom eat, we watch television.  Even after I finish eating and we have early morning snuggle time, we still watch television.  Not any news show, we only watch the best, Good Day Atlanta.  I’ve watched nothing else in the morning time for the past 9 months except this news show.  It’s the only one I know.  I feel like I know all of the Good Day team personally.  And yes, I watch television.

The day starts out with Gurvir Dhindsa and Karen Graham who brings me the news from all over.  They really let me know what’s going on out there and what my mom should watch out for.  These two ladies are awesome together.  They make me snort and they’re a great way to start the morning!  I know I’m only a piglet but hubba hubba to these two gorgeous anchors.

Then there’s Joanne Feldman – she’s a beauty queen with smarts.  She’s a meterologist.  That was a hard word for me to say but mom explained it to me.  She let’s me know if the rainy stuff is going to fall from the sky and when I need to go into hibernation.  She’s so tiny – she’s like me – a miniature – snort.

And I saved the best woman in the morning for last – Cheryl White.  She’s the best traffic anchor there is.  She shows these really neat maps showing all kinds of flashy lights and traffic congestion.  I don’t know much about traffic congestion, I just like all the flashy things 🙂  Her voice is so soothing – just like moms.  And, she shows these really cool flower pictures on her facebook page.  I think I’m in love.

And then the guy of the morning – Buck Lanford.  He *really* keeps me on my hooves.  His vast vocabulary keeps me hopping like a rabbit.  You should see my dictionary.  There’s actually slobber and hoove marks on several pages looking up some of his words.  I’ve caught mom using some of them too.  We can all learn from this guy.  Hooves up my man!

So, now you know.  This is how I start my morning.  With my Good Day Team, my peeps.  They get everyone up and going!

Dear Bacon – 1st Issue

Okay – the comments and questions have been pouring in for my new column, Dear Bacon.  This is the first issue that I like to put out.  If  you have questions that  you would like to ask, please send them to

Dear Bacon,

Often when I walk down the street, I feel as if people are staring out me.  I think it’s because of my tail.  It always goes up and won’t hang down naturally.  What should I do? –  Up in Tennessee

Dear Up in Tennessee,

We all have tail issues.  I think mine is slightly off centered.  I can tell when I look in the mirror.  There’s no need to feel self conscious about this.  People are staring because you are one fine looking speciman!  Let em’ stare – shake what your momma gave you with pride!


Dear Bacon,

I’m thinking of posing for Cat Spread.  Do you think I should? I think I’m beautiful – Puurrfecctly Beautiful

Dear Puurrfecctly Beautiful AKA Mouse –

Quit sending in questions.  You’re my sister.  I can’t make comments like that.  That’s sick.  Quit posing like that.  Have some dignity.  Geez – girls!



Dear Pig,

I have a problem with my master taking pictures of me.  He always gets me off guard and it always looks like well, like this.  What should I do pig? – Tiny in Barksville

Dear Tiny in Barksville,

WOW dude, you really don’t take good pictures.  Calm down, before you send some dobermans out to hunt me down let me tell you something.  You can always tell when the humans are going to start snapping.  They always go, “Don’t move, stay right there…”  That should be your first clue that they are fixing to get camera happy.  Maybe you should also practice your smile.  When the humans aren’t looking, look in the mirror and smile.  Practice, practice and practice – did I say practice?  Perfect that beautiful smile – I know you can.  So, you get the commands, start smiling.  Before too long,  you’ll be on those Christmas cards!
