Very Inspiring Blogger Award

My piggy tail is wagging so much that I can’t contain it.  I am *that* excited.  I’m running around my room barking and I just have to get my thoughts together so I can hoove out this reply.  Dad heard me barking and had to come check on me.  When I told him about it, he was thrilled too!  He let me call mommy at the worky place to tell her about it.  She was so proud of her little oinker!

20130114-071807.jpgSEVEN FACTS ABOUT LITTLE OLE ME – BACON

1.  I’m a huge snuggle pig.  Some people have lap kitties – mom has those too but she also has a lap piggie. 🙂 There is nothing more that I like to do than to snuggle with mommy.  It doesn’t matter where.  On the couch, in my bed, in her bed – anywhere.  At times, I still crawl up in her lap and she rocks me and sings me to sleep like she did when I was a baby. 

2.  Mom puts me to bed at night just like a child.  We go in my room, she sits with me and tells me a bed time story or sings to me.  Sometimes she rocks me and sometimes she tucks me in my bed for my story.  I’m an attention hog and this is something mommy has done since she adopted me at three weeks.  I know.  I’m spoiled like that at the Hotel Thompson.

3.  I have my own room at the Hotel Thompson.  In fact, it’s actually the master bedroom at the house – snort.  And trust me, I *know* it’s my room.  It has all of my stuff in it like my bed, my potty patch, my toys (which are somehow all shaped like pigs – figure that), a safety crate, my laptop and a flat screen television.  What?  A pig has to have entertainment. 

4. I love – let me change that – absolutely LOVE – all food.  Mom is forever letting me try all kinds of different things to expand my food experience.  There has only been one thing in my 15 months that I really do not like – Kumquats.  Kumquats are meant to be eaten skin and all.  When you eat them, you get kind of a sweet and sour taste.  Mom’s friend told her that her piggies love them.  Well, this little piggy didn’t care for the sweet and sour experience.  Of all of the times mom didn’t have a camera ready, she missed the best opportunity.  My ears went back so fast when I bit into one that I think I heard wind blow through them.  Shivers just thinking of it!

5.  I am a sucker for Animal Crackers.  I will do anything you want and say. 

6.  I speak human.  I have learned things over the months and know phrases like:  “Go to your room”; “Bedtime”; “Go potty”; “Get ready for bed”; “Get on the couch”; “Come here”; “Go see Daddy”; and “Don’t eat the cats” (this one is highly frowned upon in this establishment).  I also know how to play ball.

7.    With dad’s help, I call mommy at work every day at 3:00PM when I get up from my afternoon nap.  I think it helps mom get through the rest of her day.  Cause we all know, a happy mommy is a loving mommy!

A Weekend of Fun and Relaxation

Have I mentioned lately that I absolutely love it when mommy is home from the worky place?  I love a long weekend where we just crash together.   Sometimes I sleep beside her on the couch while she’s on my laptop writing.  Sometimes I sit right beside her on the couch and watch the boob tube and snort at it making noises and flashing pretty lights.  Regardless, I’m right beside my mommy and that’s all that matters. 

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m at home during the week with dad and it’s all good.  He’s just not the mommy.  Do you know what I mean?  It’s not the same.  He doesn’t talk pig and understand me like she does.  Plus he doesn’t smell like mommy.  That smell makes me all tingly inside.  I’ll tell you a secret just between you and me.  Sometimes when it’s wash day, when mom gets ready for the worky place in the morning she will give me her pajama top to snuggle in for my morning nap time.  I drift right off to nighty night land with that.  Dad gets it later when he does the wash so it’s fresh for her when she gets home.

So now you know.  Dad is the master mind behind the Hotel Thompson.  He runs this place top and bottom and takes care of everything here while mom is at the worky place.  If only he baked cookies during the day, then it would be a perfect place – snort! 

I hope all of you had an awesome weekend.  What did you do?  Where did you go?  What did you watch on television or Netflix?  Do share with this adventurous pig.
