Liebster Award – YAY!


I have been awarded the Liebster Award from my friends Noel the Christmas Cat and the rest of the DogDaz zoo:  Louise, Sofie, Nine, Stella and Mom at – go check them out when you get a chance.  You gotta love their posts!!

They gave me this award last Thursday – sorry for the delay in getting back.  We actually put all laptops and phones up on the fireplace mantel this weekend since mom was home for three days.  We spent quality time together away from gadgets.  It was refreshing.

They left me some questions that I’m to answer.  I’ll then create some questions for my three nominated peeps to answer.  Isn’t this fun!?  It’s a great way to meet new people and learn about them.  I’m so excited! 

1. What is your favorite hiding place?  Well, I use to hide behind the sofa but now that my belly has progressed (yeah I like that), I can’t get back there anymore.  It’s kind of hard to hide something this great.

2. If you could talk to your human for 5 minutes in their language, what would you say?  OOHH, this is good.  I would have to tell mommy how much I love her, how thankful I am that she adopted me and my life at the Hotel Thompson is so blessed.

3. What is your most favorite food?  This is a hard decision.  I like a LOT of food.  I guess my favorite would be watermelon.  I love watermelon.  The rind, the melon and the juice!

4. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?  I would like to step my hooves in the water at Tybee Island.  It’s a dream.  It might happen one day. 

5. Do you have a hero?  Maxwell.  You know, from the Geico commercials.  He is my idol.  He is the most happening pig around.  He’s a movie pigstar!  One day, I will be that famous!

6. Do you have a bed time?  Yep, I have a piggy routine.  Sunday thru Thursday my bedtime is 9:00pm.  Friday and Saturday I get to stay up as late as I want. 

7. What makes you laugh? Anything that makes mommy laugh, makes me laugh.  When she smiles, I smile.

8. What do you do that makes others laugh?  When I fall at moms feet for her to love me and rub my belly.  When I jump on the sofa with mom to watch television.  When I fall asleep when mommy is telling me my bedtime story before bed. 

9. Does anything scare you?  Okay but you can’t tell anyone.  Come closer – I’m afraid of the dark.  Shivers, it’s so dark!

10. Do you know how to dance?  I’ve tried but I keep stepping on moms feet.  Do you know how it feels to have a hoove step on your toes?  Mom says it hurts – snort.

This was fun!  I hope you found out something new and exciting about me.  The three people I would like to know more about are –

My questions for you –

  1. What’s the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?
  2. What makes you smile?
  3. What is your favorite quote?
  4. What is your favorite day of the week?
  5. What is your favorite season?
  6. What is your favorite month of the year?
  7. Are you a beach or mountain kind of person?
  8. If you could be any super hero, who would it be?
  9. Are you a dreamer?
  10. Are you a singer, dancer or an actor?

This was so much fun!!  I hope you learned something about me.  HOGS AND KISSES – BACON

Time Change Stinks to High Heavens!




My inner pig clock is off.  Mom actually had to wake *me* up this morning for breakfast.  That stinks.  I’m suppose to be the piggy alarm clock of the house. 

I heard her get up and move around.  I just thought she was taking a potty break.  She started flipping on lights which I thought was odd.  The next thing I knew, she was opening my door and saying good morning.



I ate my breakfast – you know the normal piggy chow and Cheerios.  I then crawled up on the couch with mommy and went back to sleep.  I couldn’t help it.  It was too early.

Mommy explained to me about the time change and that she had to go back to the worky place today.  You see, she’s been off the past three days.  It’s been a wonderful time with mommy being off.  We had a lot of bonding time snuggling together and cleaning the house.

And do you believe that she actually put the phone and laptop on the mantel of the fireplace and didn’t pick them up until last night?   It was awesome! 

She gave me a piggy massage this morning with snuggles and kisses and put me back to bed.  It’s going to be a very, VERY long day today.  Yawn – happy Monday my friends!

Zebra Inspired


This one picture of a pig that looked like a zebra got me thinking over the weekend.  What would it look like if other animals had that ‘zebra’ look?  And what do they call this pig that looks like a zebra?  Zepig?  Pigbra?  Is it actuall real?  It looks kind of neat though, doesn’t it?  Let’s reflect on zebras shall we?



What if there was a dog mixed with zebra?  Now that would be unique.  What would they possibly call it?  Dogbra?  Zedog?  It is actually cute looking though, don’t you think?  I’m sure it would most definitely get the looks when walking down the street.  Or, could you imagine it chasing the mailman.  snort – I would pay to see that.



Then, let’s take a pot bellied pig like myself and zebra it.  Now, that is the look.  It looks like it could be a member of the rock group KISS – snort.  Too funny.  But I have to ask the most important question.  Is it white with black stripes or black with white stripes?



20130220-081344.jpgAnd then here’s the kicker.  I started thinking about Journalist Rocky the Squirrel.  What if we mixed him with a pig and a zebra?  I gave him my snout and face and zebra markings?  Cute little guy isn’t he?  SNORT – PLAO (Pig Laughing All Over!)  Squripigbra?  Oh my gosh – that’s too much and so funny!

So how was your weekend?  As you can see, I surfed the net and had a lot of fun!  XOXO – Bacon
