Let’s take a walk down memory lane today shall we. I’ve gotten some new visitors and friends here on my blog and I want you to know the real me. I’m not perfect – snort – I do have my days when I can be a
little okay a lot stubborn. Of course they’re few and far between – snort.
Mom adopted me when I was a mere three weeks old. She had raised other small animals from that age so I had faith in her skills. This was me the day I came home. Can you believe that I only weighed ONE pound that day?! I was the runt of my litter. The farm brought me inside and put me on the bottle. Mom got me at three weeks and I’ve NEVER been outside in nature except for in passing. It’s not that mom hasn’t tried. Trust me – she has. Here is the post about my family https://piglove.wordpress.com/2011/11/27/304/ Also, have you ever wondered how and why mom adopted me, a mere pig?

Since I don’t choose to go out in nature, I have a wizzy spot in my bedroom. I was pretty easy to train in this. I mean geez, have you met my mother? https://piglove.wordpress.com/2011/11/18/geez-mom-take-a-chill-pill/ She had a fit every time I went wizzy or pooh. I don’t know how personally “I” survived those days.
Oh oh mom. She *always* has a camera ready with her for the most parts since I was little. This is one of my funniest pictures from my childhood. She thought it would be funny to have ‘bacon and eggs’ in pictures. Snort – it is kind of funny. Moms always coming up with different pictures and views. I’ve gotten kind of used to after all of these months. You never know when the flash is going to go off at the Hotel Thompson! Be ready and keep a smile.
And just between you and me, I’m not perfect. I’ve had my moments and still do at times. There have been times that daddy has made ‘that call’ to mom. Check this out https://piglove.wordpress.com/2012/06/20/the-phone-call/ and I can be sweet bacon or deviled ham. It’s strictly up to you. Mom and dad learned real quick what I expect at the Hotel Thompson. https://piglove.wordpress.com/2011/11/06/sweet-bacon-or-devil-bacon/ Yeah, I paid the price for that. Mom had a prayer meeting with me that night when she tucked me in without my bedtime snack. Shivers – no bedtime snacks are the pits!
And let’s not EVER forget the great baby gate ordeal – snort. I was ‘this’ close to winning that battle with that stupid gate. Snort – I almost threw mom over the edge with the gate thing. I can admit that now. It was a challenge to me and challenges are right up our alley. We will watch something, focus on it and do it until it works. Like the baby gate https://piglove.wordpress.com/2012/06/10/the-great-gate/ Yeah, dad has tweaked it now with a bungee cord so the kitchen is off limits. But it was a fun challenge getting to this state – LOL. But getting there – snort https://piglove.wordpress.com/2011/12/05/ill-huff-and-puff-and-blow-your-gate-down/
And do you know mom made a video about me? Yeah, this is a touching tribute to this little oinker that my mom put together with her own two little hands. It even brought water to my eyes. By all means, check it out and let us know what you think. Thanks so much for being my friend and supporting this little piggy. I love you bunches each and every one – Hogs and Kisses – Bacon
