This finding a pig sitter adventure is really tough! I don’t think mom or dad thought it would be this complicated. The date is getting closer! We keep hearing the clock – tick tock tick tock. I actually think mom was getting in panic mode.
Mom/dad had interviews again yesterday. I think we may have a winner. Keep your fingers crossed – I’m keeping my hooves crossed.
Each person is told the same thing. Mom/dad are looking for a pig sitter, someone that would be with me most of the time. With the exception of school, a date, etc. I have a schedule that needs to be maintained to my standards. That means, the individual gets free rent and food while they are here with me. AND, they are getting paid to keep me company, feed me and basically be at my beck and call. Snorts – okay well that’s how I took it anyway.
Interview 4 – Snorts – I don’t even really need to say anything here – NEXT. Okay, that’s not going to get it with you huh? You want details on this NEXT? Let’s just say the guy wore more make-up than mommy and had black fingernails. Uh-oh not going to happen. N.E.X.T. This guy scared me more than any of the stories of my 31 Days of Spook. I jumped off the sofa and RAN to my bedroom squealing. I even slammed the door. I would have locked it if I could have reached the door knob. That was scary!
Interview 5 – We have a WINNER!!
After much encouragement – darn this pot belly – I came out for interview 5. I’m glad I did. Her name is Hannah and she is heaven. She smelled like baby powder and had the prettiest smile. I immediately walked up to her and I didn’t scare her. What? A taker? I jumped on the couch and again it didn’t startle her. She petted me and I got a little bit closer. She talked to mom/dad and petted me with the softest hands. I think I’m in love. She was my Hannah. She didn’t even cringle when mom went over the details of taking care of me. You know, like cleaning my box, cooking for me and playing with me. Oh WOW! So, when are mom/dad going away? I have an angel that’s going to take care of me my friends. I can’t wait.

That is really super news! Now, do be kind to Hannah – she’s a novice and you mustn’t take advantage 😀

I will try my friend. I will definitely try. She’s coming back on Thursday for daddy to show her the ropes and get my schedule routine. I hope she smells like baby powder again 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

Wow. Interview 4 sounds really scary. Maybe he misread the calendar or he’s getting a jumpstart on Halloween. Whatever. But it sounds like Interview 5 is the charm . . . or maybe charmer! Sounds like you both won each other over. 😉

Interview 4 – shivers. That one scared me and mommy. Daddy couldn’t get him out fast enough. Then it took forever for mommy to persuade me back for interview 5. She has great potential in my piggy book. Can’t wait to see her Thursday for a run through. XOXO – Bacon

GREAT news, Bacon. I’m so happy for you. Hannah the Piggy Sitter sounds just perfect. It’s a good sign when you jumped up to her and she petted you! (#4 sounded like perhaps one of your Halloween posts….SCARY!) xx I could tell you liked Hannah right away! 🙂

He was super scary for this little piggy. Mommy said he was goth or something like that. I think he was totally strange – no thank you. The Hotel Thompson does not NEED him. It needs my Hannah… my sweet angel that smells like baby powder. XOXO – Bacon

I’m so excited that you found The One!! What questions did your parents ask her? Mom keeps talking about finding me a pigsitter when we move to our new home and they go on vacation. It wont be for a while, but someday it’ll happen. Have fun with your Hannah!

It was intense. I was there while they interviewed. They watched how we got along to make sure we were compatible and they weren’t afraid of me. That was key! I have to like them. You know how we are about our schedules and routines. Mom felt comfortable with Hannah. She’s coming back Thursday kind of for a dry run. I’ll definitely keep you posted. XOXO – Bacon

My Hannah is sunshine and rainbows right now. I can’t wait until Thursday. She’s suppose to come over for daddy to show her the ropes. I hope she plays with me. XOXO – Bacon

Duck sitting is also an art form, btw. 😉 Congrats on finding a perfect match!!!
