Happy Birthday Shout Out!

This is a very special shout out to a very special friend of mine.  He’s come to visit me in the past couple of weeks, even fed me some carrots.  He was a wonderful little man that played with me and loved on me. 

He said he wanted a piggy like me.  I’m sorry to tell you buddy, I’m one of a kind – there is no one else like me being spoiled and all.  But I tell you what, maybe you can come over for a play date or maybe even babysit me one day. 

In the meantime, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRAVIS!!  You deserve the best day!

National Corn Chip Day

20130121-110151.jpgJournalist Rocky the Squirrel here – keeping his paws on the nuts of the world.


Today is mandated as National Corn Chip Day! Corn chips are right up my alley if you know what I mean. Who can turn down a good chip? Can you believe that 50 years ago (way before this journalists time), few Americans even knew what corn chips were? That’s amazing to me. Today, we can’t imagine life without those tasty little morsels. They were first marketed in 1961 and have been going strong since.

So, in honor of today being National Corn Chip Day – go out and eat some chips… with salsa… with dip… plain… with a friend… yeah, I know the pig is going to get his share!

Dear Bacon


Dear Bacon,

See there’s this place called the GYM that humans and animals work out at all of the time.  You should find it.  You’re starting to look a little porky – bark – ha.  Signed  Stud Muffin

Dear Mutt Stud,

You want to go there huh? This exquisite body is 45 pounds of lean shapely pig.  I’m called a pot bellied pig for a reason.  It takes a lot of work to maintain this exquisite physique.  You should only inspire to have this high performance body one day my friend.  That is all.



Dear Bacon,

I do not know why you insist on calling those bubbly things in water a spa adventure.  They are not and I will not abide.  You and the humans can not make me.  I will not partake in that watery death sentence.  Signed Cornered

Dear Cornered,

WOW – I commend you on the nose in the corner situation.  Is it really all that bad?  I would think that you for one would love to play with the bubbles.  I know the purr things here do when mom is in bubble land.  Did you even stick a paw in the suds? 


20130124-091922.jpgDear Bacon,

I’ve heard in your Netflix que you have a lot of ghost and life after death shows.  HA – I think I’m right up your alley little man.  Any time you want to take the challenge, you just let me know.  I think I can accommodate you.  Signed Precious

Dear Precious,

Who you been talking to about my private Netflix account?  I’m good.  Really I am.  I do find it intriguing but not so much to take a challenge physically to find out.  I thank you very much though for the offer.  It was awfully nice of you and I appreciate the thoughts.  You just take it easy and try not hurt yourself okay.  Thanks anyhow!



20130124-091844.jpgDear Bacon,

Sing with me little oinker –

You put your right foot in,
You put your right foot out,
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey Pokey
And you turn yourself around,
That’s what it’s all about.

Signed Dancing and Singing Elephant

Dear DAS Elephant,

I absolutely loved it and needed that snort.  Thanks so much my friend.  Keep up the fabulous work!


20130124-091908.jpgDear Bacon,

I’m not sure if you and your mom have ever played Hide N Seek but it’s a great game.  I’m the winner of the 2012 Best in Camoflauge.  Can you imagine how I won here in this picture?  Sometimes the humans even forget I’m in the room.  Signed Invisible

Dear Invisible,

OMP (Oh my pig!)  That is outrageous and over the top.  You go you little Houdini.  I’m going to have practice up on my skills and see if I can one day live up to your standards.  Totally awesome!
