Thank you so very much my friends for participating in my first Bacon’s Show and Tell yesterday. It was such a great joy in seeing everyone’s different favorite toys they had as children. They brought such good memories to us here at the Hotel Thompson as I’m sure you had as well. A special shout out to my Cousin Sammy for filling in for me yesterday. I really appreciate your help Cousin! I can’t say thank you enough for looking after Bacon’s Show and Tell.
Let’s mark our calendars for Thursday, July 31, 2014, to have our next Bacon’s Show and Tell. This time though, let’s highlight that one toy that you really wanted as a child but you never got while growing up. I’m sure we all have that one thing we dreamed about but never showed up at birthdays or Christmas. On Thursday, July 31, 2014, let’s get that one toy finally and talk about what it meant to us.
Now as for me being PMIA (piggy missing in action) yesterday. WOW – could it have been a longer day for us here at the Hotel Thompson? Mommy took off work – that should have been my first clue that something was amiss during the week – especially on a Monday. Are you ready for the breakdown? Snorts – tighten your seat belt here we go.
First up – may I present to you Albert – mom’s Smart car. He had his “physical” yesterday. Yep, I said it – physical. The good thing about a Smart car is that you can go 10,000 miles before an oil change. It counts it down for you and let’s you know when you need to take it in for a change. Great perk. Down side – it takes synthetic oil and costs more than normal. But like mom said, once every 10,000 miles makes it only getting an oil change around once a year. And I bet you didn’t know that my mom comes from a long line of grease monkey’s. She has been known to change her own oil – go mom – but not on Albert nope. She hasn’t tried although she’s watched videos and wants to attempt it one day. (And speaking of working on cars, snorts, mom has to tell you about a story with daddy on that one day). But I digress. So after Albert’s oil change, mom has to reset Albert to count down another 10,000 miles. Why? Because the professionals don’t know how to reset him. Rolls piggy eyes. Really? And you call yourselves professionals – snorts.
Second up – I had to go for my yearly “physical”. Joy. Yay. Super. What a fun time. I’m going through a shedding phase – which is normal. Mommy neglected to write this on the family calendar. I wonder why? Surprise for the piggy? Sure why not. It really wasn’t that bad – not considering. My vet, Dr. Corine, is wonderful and she smells great. What I don’t like is the waiting room. Dr. Corine is an exotic pet doctor. There was a snake as a patient in the waiting room yesterday. You trying to give this piggy a heart attack? Mr. Snake stayed to himself but my mohawk was up on my back. Shivers. And I might have – stress MIGHT – have peed on the floor. Okay – I was a little nervous. Who wouldn’t be with that anaconda in the room with me? I’ve seen videos of them eating my kind. Shivers. But I didn’t have to wait long before Dr. Corine took me back for my “physical”. She went down the list – eyes clear, temp good (don’t even ask – and no she didn’t buy me a drink first!), teeth good, ears good, hooves good – mom’s been doing great at keeping them trimmed. Then we got to the weight. I weigh a whopping 48 pounds. WOW – I’m a pig – snorts – literally. I’m healthy. My pot belly is not over abundant and my face is not puffy. But do you know Dr. Corine had the nerve to tell mommy to watch my weight?! Watch MY weight. Really? Stomps hooves. As if. I am a miniature pot bellied piggy. I have standards to maintain Dr. Corine. Bite me. Snorts.
🙂 So that’s why I was PMIA yesterday. Of course after my “physical”, guess who else had their physicals? Yep, mom and dad. I think I heard mom say bite me too – snorts.

Anaconda, Snakes? wha!?!?!
07/01/2014 at 1:10 pm
Snorts – yeah. Tell me about it. I knew my vet takes care of exotics but sometimes one doesn’t want to see those kinds of exotics. Shivers. XOXO – Bacon

Neup! don’t blame ya, they belong waaaaaaay in the wild!
07/01/2014 at 2:09 pm
Oh most definitely! XOXO – Bacon

I don’t think we would of been happy with that in the the room either
07/01/2014 at 1:12 pm
Shivers. I’m not sure which one – me or mom – was ready to jump on the table in the waiting room. I mean Mr. Snake was polite and everything on his side of the room but still – shivers. Shivers. XOXO – Bacon
07/01/2014 at 1:08 pm
I’m with you the waiting room is a scary place, not even good enough to leave a pee-mail there. I’m glad you got good news. To watch your weight is not bad… butt be careful when it turns into “weight watchers” :o) I marked 7/31 in my pawlendar, I bet my mom will need 87k words to count all athe things she want and never got….
07/01/2014 at 1:13 pm
Snorts – too funny. I told mommy that I had an excuse for wetting the floor. Who wouldn’t in the waiting room with Mr. Snake? I think mom almost did herself! :O Shivers. XOXO – Bacon
07/01/2014 at 1:18 pm
Brother I bet with a snake in the waiting room my mom would run to Venezuela like that Mathilda girl oin the song… although that could be totally the wrong place for a mom with a snake-o-phobia :o)
07/01/2014 at 2:09 pm
My mom wasn’t too happy about the situation. Said snake was contained but shivers… take that thing to the back okay. It should be thankful that I didn’t squeal to the high heavens while waiting. XOXO – Bacon
07/01/2014 at 2:08 pm
How rude, not to even buy you a drink first! Huh! Doctors can be very pervy sometimes. Watching weight is a tough one for a doggie, so I can’t imaging it for a pig. It seems counterintuitive!
Love and licks,
07/01/2014 at 2:38 pm
Exactly what I was thinking. How am I suppose to maintain and have a wonderful POT-BELLY if I don’t eat? Rolls piggy eyes and shrugs shoulders. The nerve! XOXO – Bacon
07/01/2014 at 2:37 pm
Oh My Cats!! A snake!!!!! (*shivers*) We would have run for the hills… 😯
We’re so glad to hear that your vet visit went well. 🙂
xoxo Roxy & Tigerlino ❤
07/01/2014 at 2:40 pm
Thank you my friends. It was definitely touch and go for a while. I can’t imagine what Mr. Snakes visit was about and I didn’t want to find out. No way. Nope. Not going to happen. Wasn’t going to snort in his direction at all. XOXO – Bacon
07/01/2014 at 5:06 pm
Whee loved joining in with your show and tell! Sorry to hear that you were at the vets while some of it was taking place, eek!

No problems. I’m good for another year so that’s all behind me now – squeal! XOXO – Bacon
07/01/2014 at 5:09 pm
Well at least that’s something whee DO like to hear! Healthy Bacon is a very good piggy indeed!

Albert is gorgeous!
07/01/2014 at 5:08 pm
aaww – thanks. It is mom’s pride and joy… well besides me 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
07/01/2014 at 8:06 pm
Well done on a good report! You gave me a giggle. 🙂
07/01/2014 at 8:14 pm
Snorts. Thank you 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
07/01/2014 at 8:20 pm
Glad to hear you are in top shape after your physical.
07/01/2014 at 9:07 pm
Good as gold my friend. XOXO – Bacon

We’re so happy to hear that your physical went well despite the snake…and the…well…”exam” back there…and the comment about your weight. Mom already knows what she is going to post about on the 31st. Little does she know that NO posting will be taking place without our pawmission and pawmission means TREATS…LOT OF THEM…and then we may consider letting her use our blog.

Snorts. I like the way you think my friends. I may need to take lessons from you on this treats vs blog permission. That sounds ideal! Is it the 31st yet? XOXO – Bacon
07/02/2014 at 6:54 pm
Glad everything went good. I wouldn’t of like that snake either. Yikes.
07/02/2014 at 7:49 pm
That’s what me and mom said. Shivers. They almost had to remove mom off the light fixture on the ceiling. XOXO – Bacon

You understand so completely my sweet purr thing. This is why I was so out of it yesterday. That snake was terrifying to say the least. The owner was holding it like it was a puppy! No way. No way at all! I couldn’t wait to see Dr Corine fast enough. It was almost worth her invading my captains quarters to get away from Mr Snake. Snorts – that’s a thought. I wonder if she went into Mr Snakes captains quarters? PLOL. XOXO – Bacon
07/03/2014 at 7:26 pm

Yes my sweet purr thing it is. It was totally frustrating to me and mom. Dr Corine has to be a special lady to handle these other critters. That’s for sure. Let’s snuggle close now my lovey. XOXO – Bacon
