National Watermelon Day

03 Aug


Rocky the Squirrel

here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


August 3rd is a grand and awesome day for that little pig called Bacon. It is National Watermelon Day. Heck yeah this big ole fruit deserves an entire day all to itself. Watermelon is 90% water but 100% goodness. Do you know that little oinker here loves his watermelon – rind, juice and ALL!  I’m attaching some pictures for your amusement of a watermelon bash he had not too long ago where watermelon went flying everywhere!  I think it took Bacon’s mom several hours to clean up the mess but she said it was well worth it to make some memories and have fun with the Bacon.  Way to go mom!

Go out today and enjoy you some watermelon!  Make some memories and have a blast.

      Yes it is! What you don’t see in that picture is before mommy was hand feeding me, I took off with a big chunk to my room. Mommy had to chase me down. It was a lot of fun – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Bacon, at least you like watermelon. My horsey friend spits it out! And he’s supposed to like it! You are very, very sweet looking, Bacon. HUGS! 🙂

      Aaww thanks my friend. I love watermelon – rind and all. I especially love the juice. I usually save that in my bowl until last and then slurp it up. Yummy! XOXO – Bacon

    What a coincidence–Mommy went to the store a couple of days ago and brought home a watermelon that we’re planning on eating today! Watermelon Day! We didn’t even know until we read Rocky the Squirrel’s excellent report!

    Even squirrels love watermelon! And we like to spit the seeds out from atop the tree onto unsuspecting doggies and kitties! Is it true what my Mom told me that if you swallow a seed, a watermelon will grow in your belly?

    • PigLove

      That’s why there are seeds all over the backyard! That Rocky is a spitting fool! It must be true about swallowing seeds. That’s why mom won’t eat any. She’s afraid of the seeds. This also goes for lemons. Don’t dare bring her a water with lemon. She also believes that if she twists your belly button, your legs will dangle. Mom is strange. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
