I Got Mail!

You might remember a couple of weeks back I wished Percy Pig happy birthday.  You can find the post here https://piglove.wordpress.com/2013/07/23/happy-birthday/  He actually turned 21 that day – what an accomplishment!  Mommy has Percy Pig on her Facebook and we often read about the candy.  We’ve wanted to try them and even mentioned it in my post.

Well let me tell you about the kindness of someone right here on our blog.  Misaki, who is an Alaskan Malamute, has his own blog at http://themisadventuresofmisaki.wordpress.com/  Misaki  emailed me to advise that his human works close to a Marks and Spencer that sells the Percy Pig candies and asked it we would like some.  This little piggy was overwhelmed at the generosity of Misaki and his family.

Last night when mommy got home, we had a package in the mail and it was to me!  I opened it up and there was a personalized letter from Misaki.

I was so piggy thrilled and excited!  My first international mail from the United Kingdom.  I couldn’t slow down from running throughout the Hotel Thompson.  Mommy thought I was already high on sugar – snorts.  We opened the package to find – insert angelic music here – Percy Pig delights!  All kinds of Percy Pig delights!  There was Percy Piglets, Percy and Penny, Percy Pig and Percy Pig and Friends.  So much to choose from!  Mommy opened up the bags and put them in a tight sealed container.  I got to pick one to eat – snorts.  She *thought* she was going to get a picture – snorts.  She gave it to me and I was so hyped up from getting the package that I took off to my room to eat it.

Might I add – it was delicious!  It was kind of like a gummy bear and we all know that I absolutely LOVE my gummy bears.  It was sweet with a fruity taste.  I like to refer to them as pig heaven – snorts.  Mom/dad tried one as well.  Daddy was not a big fan.  He doesn’t know good taste when it comes to gummy bears like me and mom do 🙂  Mom, of course, loved them too.

  You’re probably asking what they look like.  Well, that’s easy.  They look like little pigs 🙂  Except for the package of Percy and Friends.  They have pigs, cows and sheep.  Cool huh?  Here’s a picture of them.

So Misaki and family – thank you so very, very, very MUCH!  I can’t tell you thank you enough.  Thank you so much for thinking of this little oinker and making his week with such a kind and thoughtful gesture.  Many hogs and snout kisses my friend – XOXO – Bacon

Sniff – Sniff – Cry – Cry –

20130325-100220.jpgSafe travels my dear Bashful –

This morning was the day. Bashful left for his trip afar. None of us thought it was going to be as emotional as it was. We all woke up this morning and none of us were in a real talkative mood. Bashful was so excited last night that he didn’t go to bed until sometime in the early hours this morning. When I got him up this morning he was tired – but happy and excited.

We all had his favorite for breakfast – Coco Pebbles cereal – and talked about his new adventure. Mom/dad told him to be on his best behavior and that they didn’t want any phone calls or emails that he was misbehaving in any way.

Mom/dad took Bashful to his pediarocktrician yesterday. They gave him a clean bill of health and gave him a shot for motion sickness. I hope that it lasts his entire trip.

I, Bacon and Mouse Girl all said 20130801-153407.jpgour goodbye’s to the little guy this morning at the house. Mom/dad took him to the airport for his flight. Daddy said that mom totally collapsed and cried like there was a faucet turned on full force. Poor mom – she’s so sentimental like that. She just stood at the window watching the plane load up and take off. She wouldn’t even leave the airport until they couldn’t see the plane anymore. Poor thing – I’ll have to give her extra snuggles tonight.

Thank goodness Bashful got his Passrockport. He needed it this morning going through customs and checking in for his flight. Since he’s under age, the flight attendant said she would take good care of him. He even earned his wings – cool huh on Delta? For his flight meal, he is going to get rockstew. I *know* he will be excited about that. It’s one of his favorites.

The only thing we are not too sure about is the flight movie. Since it’s such a long flight, they are

showing Castaway. This kind of worries me. Let’s just hope that the movie doesn’t cross over into reality. I’m not too sure how Bashful would do stranded on a tropical island. He burns really easy.

So to the host family – you *know* who you are 🙂 He should be arriving in about 6-10 days. It’s a really, REALLY long flight – snorts. I hope you have loads of fun with Bashful and we can’t wait to read about his adventures. Take plenty of pictures and have FUN!
