No to Nature

28 Apr

It’s no secret – I don’t do nature.  It’s as simple as that.  There are things out there on the other side of the door that I don’t want touching me.  I’m a spoiled pig in that aspect.  I can admit that.  I’ve never been except in crossing from the mini pig mobile to the house when going on a field trip.  I’ve never spent the night ‘outside’.  I don’t even like the way the grass feels on my hooves. 

Do you understand – I don’t do nature.  I’m house trained – why do I really need to go out ‘there’?  And let alone, the luxuries of my bedroom are not in nature – you know like my bed, my television and the magical food box in the kitchen.

 And just to make another point about nature.  Did you know that there are slithery things out there?  I know – I was shocked too!  I thought my back yard held things like the pollen bunny, mysterious unicorns and beautiful butterflies.  I learned this weekend that there is creepy crawly things in that back yard that are not so nice.

We have a wonderful neighbor – he acts like Mr. Rogers 🙂 – who cuts our yard for us.  He is so sweet and nice to do this and we really, REALLY appreciate that.  He let us know that he found a….a…. are you ready for this… a SNAKE in the back yard.  Oh gracious shivers to mergatroid piggy faint.  What happened to the butterflies and unicorns in the back yard?  I’m not sure which one of us hit the floor first – me or mom.  She just doesn’t do snakes.  In fact, I heard her tell Big Daddy next door that unless it has four legs and fur, it doesn’t need to be in the back yard.  I kind of feel the same way.

See, if I was out in nature in the back yard, I would have come snout to wiggly tongue to that thing.  OOOHHH yucky.  Just another thing to add to my list of why I don’t go outside in nature. 

XOXO – still quivering with fear Bacon

    Me and Nellie know all about that magic box that lives in the fridge. It is the dispenser of all tasty treats.
    Here in New Zealand we do not have snakes. Mummy says she has seen them at the zoo in Sydney, Australia. She says she doesn’t like them either. Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.

      Oh yes!! You are familiar with the magical box. Love your post. *We* know it holds the wonderful delights that we want so much. As far as the slithery things, you are so lucky as to not having them in New Zealand. Shivers – they are so scary!! XOXO – Bacon

    I only just realised that Bacon is thousands of miles away, but seems so close when reading her blog. I think they have certain differences in their lives. Alice did not spend much time indoors so I built her houses with a bed close to my cottage. she used to roam the farm and dig up roots and eat acorns from the trees,but was fed twice a day.The only thing that frightened her were the ponies,all the other farm animals including the dogs respected her space.When she came in the house she made less mess than the dogs.I once had a race with her from the front gate to her house and she kept up a good 25km/hr for over half a kilometre.Pigs are such fun when got at an early age and we have learned a lot over the last 2 years that would never have known without Alice being in our lives.

      I agree 100%. When you get them so young – we got Bacon at three weeks – they really bond with you and look at you as their parent. Bacon has brought so much love and joy into our lives. He’s 18 months now and it seems he’s been with us forever. It’s like having a forever toddler in your life! As you can tell, he is the joy of my life. June, Bacons mommy

    Yikes! I don’t do snakes either but we have lots on our land. You just have to stamp your feet while walking and they slither off. You have perfect little hooves for stamping dear Bacon!

      Mmm I never knew that. I’ll have to pass that on to mommy. She has a total fear of them. Can you picture her going outside now doing that? Snort. XOXO – Bacon

        Perhaps she would be wearing extra high heels? 😀

    Oh a snake in the back yard? That’s dangerous! We had one here, ok it was a blind worm, who is striktly speaking a lizard, but mom’s screaming was loud enough for an anaconda :o) I agree, I miss the TV when im outside too… and there are not enough pillows our beds :o)

      You see I agree. There are no luxuries out there. And between us, our mothers can really screech, right? I know mine hit some decimals the other day that almost broke glass. XOXO – Bacon

    Bacon you are quite wise to say inside. I am with you all the way. I am an indoor kitty and if I had to see a slithery snake in MY yard, I would NOT be happy! Love, Cody

      That’s right! The purr things have their own story about a slithery thing. I’ll have to see if I can get them to share. XOXO – Bacon

    I agree with you on those slithery things! They need to be sent back to whatever rock they crawled out from under. Luckily, I have four legs and fur… just like a unicorn!

      That’s right!! They can be sent back to the rock they crawled out from under … As long as it wasn’t Bashful they crawled out from under. Shivers. PLOL. Aaww you fit moms criteria, you’re an unicorn. Snort. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
