Any time I get treats, it’s a good day for me. Mom went to the market this past weekend and bought me all kinds of treats to stock me up. She *always* brings me back something good to eat. This week was no different.
When mom and dad go to the market, afterwards they bring all of these grocery bags into the kitchen. I get to watch as they put everything up knowing that I have stuff too. After everything is put away, mom usually takes my things and cuts everything up in one day. She puts them in buckets in the refrigerator. This is where me, the sous chef, comes in to play 🙂 She will give me tasty little morsels to try. And trust me, they are so good!
After she cuts everything up (usually carrots, celery, watermelon or some other fruit and my salad mix), she will fix me a bowl as a snack. Today’s menu consisted of grapes, Goldfish and watermelon rind. I’ve tried watermelon before but someone told mom that pigs like the rind as well. Whoever you are you sweet dear person for telling mom this, I love you. It is delicious and I’ve been eating every since! Good thing mom’s dad doesn’t have a garden anymore. I would be in hog heaven and never leave! Snorts
Mom and dad let me eat on my food carpet in the front room. So in this picture don’t fear the “dirty carpet”, it’s my feed mat. They pick it up and wash it every week. As you can see, I am chomping down on that watermelon rind. Mom took this picture of me in mid chomp. I usually will eat what I like the most first. Of course, it was the rind. I couldn’t get enough of it. You bite into it and the watermelon juice actually squirts inside of your mouth. That’s my favorite part.
I guess you can say I’m a little spoiled. Not a lot – just a little. What do you think? What’s your favorite treat?

Fresh tuna or Chicken then we know we have been top quality cats. Not sure why we do not get every day Bacon?
08/07/2014 at 9:57 am
Exactly! I mean we are perfect little angels every day – why not feed us like that? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

Goldfish and watermelon rind – snorts. You think my staff here caters to *me*? Snorts – XOXO – Bacon
08/07/2014 at 5:28 am
Gosh Bacon……that snack bowl looks fabulous……goldfish are fun – once in a while I get one as a special treat but I don’t eat all of it – usually just the fish tail. HAHAHA
08/07/2014 at 10:00 am
Snorts – yeah it’s hard to keep the purr things here out of my bowl sometimes. They like the gold fish too. It’s a hoot! XOXO – Bacon

You could be a ‘tad’ spoiled – but you deserve to be Bacon 🙂 That does look like one delicious salad bowl you have there and the sprinkle of goldfish is perfect
08/07/2014 at 10:00 am
aaww – thanks. You know for the longest time I thought every pig lived like this. But don’t worry. Daddy set me straight on that – snorts. Thanks daddy – no really. XOXO – Bacon
08/07/2014 at 6:19 am
Yum! You are a lucky pig, B. I love watermelon, but I have never tried the rind. I’m sure I would love it. ….unless the squirting scares me.
Love and licks and a little drool,
08/07/2014 at 10:02 am
Oh yummy my friend. It is lovely! So juicy and wonderful. It’s definitely a pig paradise 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
08/07/2014 at 6:22 am
What a good pig you are eating up your treats. My critters loved sliced apples and twiggy stix which are thin tubes of meat.
08/07/2014 at 10:03 am
Oh yummy! Usually I get a 1/2 of an apple sliced up for my bedtime snack. You know a piggy can’t go to bed with an empty pot belly. How would I survive the night? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

Crikey Bacon ….. looks good to me!! I love fruit. Especially grapes. I’m passing your eating habits on to Miss Poppy PooPoo pants. Might just get me into her good books, aye?? Yep ….. you’re spoiled alright! Me too. Great isn’t it?? My favourite treat is vegemite on toast. YUM!! I have it for brekky most mornings.
08/07/2014 at 10:05 am
I’ve heard of this vegemite stuff but never have tried it. Yummy? What does it taste like? When you visit Miss Poppy PooPoo pants, bring little carrots. Food will *always* get you to a pigs ❤ – Trust me on that first hoof – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
P.S. Or animal crackers… or celery sticks… or okay just about any food.
08/08/2014 at 12:25 am
Crikey …. thanks for the tip, Bacon. How about watermelon skin. You seem to really like that, aye?? Vegemite tastes real yummy but only true blue Aussies seem to think so. I don’t know what it tastes like. It’s VERY hard to describe. Some people say it’s like axle grease but it’s NOT!!
08/08/2014 at 10:26 am
Watermelon is delicious – I ❤ it so very much. I love all kinds of veggies and fruits. Gotta maintain this pot belly of mine – snorts. Vegemite does sound interesting. XOXO – Bacon
08/07/2014 at 7:12 am
Delish Bacon…you know I love watermelon too andddd I pickle the rinds 🙂 yep pickles them..;) hugs and loves Fozziemum xxx
08/07/2014 at 10:05 am
Oh THUD – that sounds marvelous my friend. I’ve never had pickled rind. I bet it is delicious! XOXO – Bacon
08/07/2014 at 7:23 am
Nmmmmmmm, Bacon, at least the restaurant of Hotel Thompson is a five-star amenity! I love watermelon but I cannot eat it because of my damned allergy. Please, eat some really huge watermelons for me, too!
08/07/2014 at 10:06 am
Snorts – You know I will my sweet friend. It’s one of my favorites for sure! Too bad my grandpa is still not with us. He grew great veggies in his garden – including watermelon. I would have had a piggy paradise buffet! XOXO – Bacon
08/07/2014 at 8:29 am
the goldfishies look interesting, are they specially for piggies? btw: my food carpet looks like yours hahahahaha
08/07/2014 at 10:07 am
Snorts – Gold fish are actually for humans. They are like little cheese crackers shaped like well um gold fish 🙂 I sent the company that makes them an email one time about how much I enjoy them. They sent me bunches of coupons. I ❤ them. It's hard for me sometimes to keep daddy out of them. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
P.S. Food carpet – mommy says it's washable just like me. She doesn't sweat the small stuff and I'm so glad!
08/07/2014 at 10:17 am
aaaah I know what kind of fieshies you got :o) you are a lucky guy that you get this human-fishies :o)
08/07/2014 at 9:47 am
What a gorgeous mix of healthy treats! Watermelon is the best.
08/07/2014 at 10:13 am
Thank you my friend. It’s hard work maintaining this pot-belly of mine. I have to be heart smart so I can be here a long time to get on dad’s nerves – I mean to be here for him. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

I think I saw my mommy drool just a tiny bit when she saw your treat bowl. 🙂 And I have to say you have a very nice mommy to shop for you, cut your food into perfectly sized pieces, and then present it in such a lovely way. I think you should keep her. 😉 I love yogurt. In the morning when my humans finish their yogurt, I get to lick the bowls. Heaven!
08/07/2014 at 11:06 am
Yogurt – licks piggy lips. That sounds so delicious my golden sweetie. I think I’m pretty lucky to have found my mom. She is very, VERY good to me. XOXO – Bacon
08/07/2014 at 11:03 am
This squirrel’s favorite treat is chocolate covered peanuts. I won’t tell you how fast I can go through a bag of those in order to…. um… protect the guilty!
08/07/2014 at 11:08 am
oh yummy! Journalist Rocky the Squirrel says he will take a bucket please. Snorts – and me too. KTHXBAI XOXO – Bacon

That looks like a perfect summer snack, no matter your species. I think I need to get some watermelon today.
08/07/2014 at 12:14 pm
Yes you do! It is fantastic! XOXO – Bacon
08/07/2014 at 3:43 pm

Bacon you get some nice treats. Looks good.
08/07/2014 at 7:16 pm
That treat thing is making me drool. Nice meaty bones, or maybe even a steak. That would make my day.
08/07/2014 at 8:30 pm
Licks piggy lips. That sounds delicious my friend. I’m in! XOXO – Bacon
08/08/2014 at 2:39 am
WOW! It’s a pig’s life over at Hotel Thompson. I (Wally) like to eat my favourites last, I’ll eat all my kibble first and then take my time savouring the carrots or green beans mom has added to our dinner – it drives Sam CRAZY ‘cos he just schnarffs everything down in one go, he literally inhales his dinner despite having a fancy-schmancy “eat slow” bowl.
Have a grrrrreat weekend dude!
Wally & Sammy
08/08/2014 at 10:29 am
Snorts – I’m a slow eater myself usually. I’m like you. I like to enjoy every little morsel in my plate. I enjoy my food – I take after my daddy on that one. XOXO – Bacon
