Tuckered Out

This is me from last night here at the Hotel Thompson.  I’m all tuckered out.  Why do you ask?  I’ll tell you why on this fine day my friends.  I’m glad you asked – snorts.  See in the picture that thing I’m lying on?  Well that is my king sized Egyptian cotton sheet.  You know the one that I ‘stole’ from mom.  That sheet is awesome.  It’s like my security blankie.  I do everything with that sheet.  I drag it all over the Hotel Thompson, I play with it and I sleep with it.  When daddy washes it, I go back/forth from the living room to the laundry room waiting for it to come out of the dryer all nice, clean and smelly.  That’s how much I love that blankie.

Last night after dinner, I pulled that sheet to the living room and spread it out on the floor.  It had to be just right.  You see it’s get a slick silky feel to it.  It’s great for sliding – snorts.  I then went to my room and ran around, down the hall and into the front room jumping on my sheet and sliding.  I did this several times until I slid into the entertainment center – snorts.  Then mommy said that was enough.

Then I did what I do second best.  See my Olivia ball in the picture?  The one that says “Pretty in Red”.  I tried to play ‘soccer’ pushing it around with my snout and kicking it.  That was fun too until it went airborne and knocked over dad’s empty glass – Snorts.  See, he’s holding me back in my profession soccer ball career.

So after all this play, I was just tuckered out.  What’s a pig to do but fall where he is and sleep forty winks.  You ever get this tuckered my friends?

Dear Bacon

20140719-222653-80813473.jpgDear Bacon,

My humans – rolls eyes although you can’t see that through these stupid glasses.  Really?  They have no forms of entertainment but to make the dog look stupid?  They must pay.  Any ideas?  Signed Blood Shot

Dear Blood Shot,

You have to admit it’s kind of cute my friend.  But if you are insistent upon pay back, might I make a suggestion?  Tonight when your humans are asleep, put said glasses on their face.  Then take a picture and send it in to make Christmas cards now.  Something about the early bird getting the worm. After that, we shall see if your humans do that to you again – snorts.  Have fun and be safe.

My get up and go has left the building.  It is gone.  Never to return again.  If you should find it, please return it.  Signed Down and Out

Dear Down and Out,

Perhaps you need to plug yourself in like that computer you are next to and recharge.  You’ll be as good as new afterwards my friend.


 Dear Bacon,20140719-222654-80814807.jpg

The accommodations here are so lacking these days.  I’ve been waiting for my dinner for what seems like hours.  It’s so hard to find good help.  Do you ever have to wait for your chow?  I would open the can myself if I had thumbs.  Humans are so lucky to have those.  Signed Ready and Waiting

Dear Ready and Waiting,

You’re table manners and patience level are very high my friend.  I’m sure your dinner will be up shortly.  Maybe your humans have a guest cook tonight fixing you a master piece?  Perhaps Chef Gordon Ramsey is cooking for you?  You never know my friend.  Patience is a virtue.  I have to wait at times as well.  It just makes it all the better when food does arrive.  Hang in there!




Dear Bacon,

Everyone always wonders who let the dogs out.  So annoying.  No one ever wonders who let the cats out.  Well I’m here to tell you today, it was me.  I let the cats out.  We went out and partied  like the pros we are.  How do you like that my friend?  Signed Meow Meow

Dear Meow,

Way to go my friend!  I will never look at the phrase and listen to that phrase the same way again.  Who let the cats out?!  YOU!  Snorts – I love that.



Dear Bacon,

I don’t get it.  I got a new toy that I took to the park.  I was playing with it and all of the humans kept pointing at me and laughing.  I don’t get it.  What’s so funny about my new toy?  Signed Mick

Dear Mick,

Pardon me for just a second my friend.  Snorticles.  OMP (oh my pig!)  Maybe the humans think you are just one good looking little pooch?  Maybe they love your name – it’s so fitting?  Maybe that just admire your new toy so very much?  I wouldn’t worry too much about them.  You just enjoy your new toy!



Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without you!  Please continue to send your pictures and questions to me at
