Nose trick – HA HA

17 Aug



PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).  You might have remembered the posting I did a while back on my mommy teaching me new ‘tricks’.  She had put this delicious strawberry flavored gummy Lifesaver on my nose.  She wouldn’t let me flip it off until she said so.  This took much training.  Really, I caught on fast but the more “training” I had, the more gummies I got.  Smart huh?  I thought so.



Well a friend of mine had to go one step further.   They actually used a real strawberry.  Had to show me up there huh my friend – snorts.

So when mommy goes to the market, I wrote on the list for her to get me some strawberries.   I see a lot of training coming up in my piggy future.

Thanks pal!

    Nice trick Bacon! I try to teach our dog tricks like this but she only wants to eat the snack!

    Can you show me this trick, Bacon? I tried it a bazillion times, but I always failed. But I can balance treats on my tongue for a nano-second :o) Have a fabulous Saturday!

      WOWI – that is amazing in itself my friend. You can balance a treat on your tongue? I certainly can’t do this. Once it’s touched my tongue, it’s gone to my pot belly. How about you teach me your trick and I’ll teach you mine? XOXO – Bacon

        Great idea – I think after a week we will not fit through any door :o)

        Uh oh – didn’t think about that. I’m going to measure the doorways and do some calculations for us 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    That is quite talented of you! I’ve never tried that with my acorns yet, but I don’t want to risk having it fall to the ground and get scooped up by another squirrel!

    We are newbees to your blog…so Hi Bacon!!!! Sigh…now ‘she’ has seen you can do tricks we suppose ‘she’ will expect us to learn ‘tricks’. However, if it involves treats we my enjoy our ‘lessons’.
