Work Detail in the Slammer

oh wow – you gotta check out what Bashful is up to with Stuart. They have cards they’ve been boxing…. beautiful cards – check it out my friends! Tell him Bacon sent you ūüôā XOXO – Bacon

The Scottie Chronicles - Winston's World

Since Bashful and I are doin’ time in the slammer for our disobedient shenanigans, we had some work to do. No license plates for us. No, we had to assemble these boxes of greeting cards for the Scottish Terrier Club of America’s2013 National Specialty Show in Pennsylvania.

They’ll be selling these cards to raise money for Scottie stuff. (Sorry Bashful, it’s not a Rolling Stone benefit but you’ll always be a Rock Star in my book.)

I think somebody else will be selling these cards, too. Sometime soon. I’m just saying.

What You Learned Today:

  • We‚Äôre in the pokey. Bashful and I.
  • We‚Äôre tired from all the work we had to do.
  • Putting these plastic boxes together and stuffing the stuff inside was tough. And we didn‚Äôt even get a treat for it.
  • I think these cards turned out nice.
  • Do you?

Dear Bacon – Super Hero Special

Recently, I’ve received a lot of mail in the form of Super Hero’s. ¬†I wanted to save them for a special edition of Dear Bacon. ¬†I hope you in blogville enjoy them as much as me and my parents did when we got them. ¬†Snorts – Happy Tuesday!

Dear Bacon,

We heard about your mission in life on becoming a Super Hero and wanting a cape. ¬†I think me and my brother will start a petition for you. ¬†With enough signatures, I think we can get your mom to get you at least dressed for the occasion. ¬†Super hero powers are something that you are born with. ¬†We’ve read enough of your blog to know that with enough thrust, you can fly. ¬†So, you’re half way there our friend. ¬†Signed Batdog and Robin

Dear Batdog and Robin,

Thanks my friends! ¬†Ya’ll look totally awesome in your outfits. ¬†I am so working on mom for my cape. ¬†I could use all of the help I can get!

Dear Bacon,

Don’t believe everything you read. ¬†Having a cape isn’t always the best thing in the world. ¬†My humans make me wear this cape and then make me sit in the corner. ¬†Why? ¬†Ask me why piggy? ¬†Because I got so excited with my cape that I might have tinkled on the carpet. ¬†What did they expect? ¬†So, they sat me in the corner with my cape on for time out. ¬†How embarrassing! ¬†Take it from me little guy. ¬†Don’t whizzle with excitement. ¬†Signed Super Tinkle

Dear Super Tinkle,

I’m so sorry my friend. ¬†That look on your face says everything. ¬†At least they could have removed your cape before putting you in time out. ¬†What super hero gets put in time out? ¬†Having a cape is exciting. ¬†I really can’t tell how I will act. ¬†But, thanks for the heads up to contain myself – whizzle and all.

Dear Bacon,

Be very specific in what you ask for in a cape.  I too always wanted one.  I just should have been a little more specific in the details.  You know like, nothing over my head.  Save that material to cover my goodies.  I mean really.  What super hero is out there with his goodies showing?  I feel like a pervedog.  Help.  Signed Spider Perve

Dear Spider Perve,

WOW Рthank you so much my little friend.  I really never thought about specifics in my cape.  You are so right.  I really need to be detailed on what I want in a cape.  Okay Рnothing on the piggy head but covering the bottom half Рgot it.  Yeah, you are so right my friend!

Okay, I like turtles and I play with them in my back yard.  Yes, I wanted to be a Super Hero.  Where in the world did I go wrong with my parents?  Why would they dress me like a TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle) and think that was what I wanted in my Super Hero outfit?  Really?  Learn from me pal, have an open conversation with your humans.  Signed Turtle Dog

 

Dear Turtle Dog,

Does it help that you look cute and adorable? ¬†Okay, maybe that doesn’t help but you do. ¬†Personally, I wouldn’t go for the mask but at least your goodies are covered – snorts. ¬†And hey, the shell on your back could be a good thing. ¬†Just think if you fall, you have the comfort of some padding. ¬†I do appreciate the heads up my friend.

Dear Bacon,

Just remember, Super Hero’s come in all shapes and sizes – not just dogs and cats. ¬†We can ALL be a Super Hero in some fashion. ¬†My humans got it right in my cape. ¬†It actually gives me just a tad bit of room to grow in. ¬†It’s so roomy that I can move. ¬†That’s important when you are doing your ninja kicks. ¬†I hope you get your cape soon my friend. ¬†Fly with Confidence! ¬†Signed Super Piggy

Dear Super Piggy,

Thanks my friend. ¬†You are so full of confidence and that really inspires me. ¬†It reminds me of an old saying that my mommy says all of the time, “Bloom where you are planted.” ¬†I guess that could mean us anipals as well, huh? ¬†Keep up the great work my little Super Hero. ¬†Hope to see you flying in the skies soon.

.

I really hope that you enjoyed this Super Hero Special of Dear Bacon.  I also really want to say thank you to all of my friends and family that send me emails with pictures and questions.  These Dear Bacon issues are by far the highlight of my week.  I put a lot of thought behind my answers and I hope that it shows.  Remember, us anipals have problems too.  If you have something you want to ask, please remember to send it to me at Baconthompson@gmail.com

Have a great one!
