Oh my friends! What a wonderful thing that happened here last night at the Hotel Thompson. I got mail! Not an email but real goodness mail. I was so piggy excited that I ran all over the house and couldn’t wait until mommy got home from the worky place to open the package.
When she did – OMP!
It was the most beautiful thing in the world. My ❤ just swelled up with so much love to my good pal Fozzie. Why do you ask? Well, she actually made me something with very own two hands. It’s adorable – LIKE ME. It’s cute – LIKE ME. It’s priceless – LIKE ME! It has an awesome bell on it that is so freaking cute! I’m letting mom take it to work with her to put on her desk beside another great piggy that my Auntie Sharon made me a while back. That way every single time mom looks at them during her stressful day, she will think of all of the love that went into making these and of course of ME!
And of course, mommy did a special thank you video to my friend Fozzie. You can see that at the bottom. NOTE: Ignore mom’s southern twang – snorts.
And now this is the part where I need you my friends. As you know we have little Houdini here at the Hotel Thompson. The little guy is going through some puppy teething kind of bad. He wants to chew on everything – including my tail – snorts! Any of you my good friends have any thoughts or suggestions on helping the little guy out? Anything would be like most welcomed. Mom tried the washcloth in the freezer trick – he turned his nose up at it and went for mom’s fingers instead – snorticles.
So – can you help this piggy out? I know my tail and mom’s fingers would like great appreciate it so very much!

With four dogs around here… leather or rawhide chew toys work well. Ice and a washcloth doesn’t work so well because it has no real natural smell. Hope that helps.

Thanks my friends. The little guy does have lots of chew toys… besides mom’s fingers and that’s a great thing! Now, to keep him off of my piggy tail – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

it’s just wonderful…. and it will be always on your side, that was so nice from Bev :o) hey, the tail is GREAT! for the sharkie-terrier: you can try to yelp (like a puppy) when he starts to eat your fingers. it worked as I punched holes in all things around me… just our neighbors think we have a screw loose since they heard my dad yelping in the back yard…
10/02/2014 at 11:18 am
That’s a great idea. I must teach mom how to yelp. I think dad has it down pact with all of the whining he does around here – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

Oh Miss Bev makes such cute little crochet thingies – and it looks just like you! Wish we had some advice for your Houdini buddy who thinks your tail is a teething ring……with all that furniture around – who needs a piggy tail???!!!!
10/02/2014 at 11:19 am
Snorts – better mine than Mouse Girl. He tries to get her tail but she encourages it. Really she does. She sits and swings it back and forth taunting him. I did catch him nibbling on a television stand. I didn’t tell anyone. I guess I need to huh? Thanks cousin! XOXO – Bacon

that is great little pig to have. Now for mr Houdini – we recommend getting a nylabone they are beef flavored) and pop it in the freezer then give it to him. He wants something that is flavorful – the other option is a nice cold bone _ a big old rib bone will work.
10/02/2014 at 1:01 pm
Awesome idea. I will definitely pass this on to mom who I know will appreciate it. Thanks so very much my friends! XOXO – Bacon

That was so nice of Fozzie! You can think of Bacon when your workin’ your little heart out….Bacon’s mom. I can’t help with the teething thing at all. The only thing I can think of is cold rawhide or similar treats.
10/02/2014 at 1:03 pm
I know right! We ❤ us some Fozzie here at the Hotel Thompson. It was so very sweet of her to do a mini me. Mommy can look at it all day long while she is making her fingers fly 🙂 Cold rawhide – that might just work. Thanks my friends. XOXO – Bacon
10/02/2014 at 1:04 pm
The yelping thing works! Also teaching them to “kiss” instead. We put butter on our hands and while they licked it we said “good boy KISS good kiss!” And eventually he learned the difference. Good luck (:
10/02/2014 at 1:05 pm
aaww – that’s a great trick. I will also pass this along to mom tonight. Thanks my friend! XOXO – Bacon
10/02/2014 at 2:46 pm
Um. The one thing whee love to chew is carrots! Don’t think he’d like them though…

Snorts – Well the little guy was eating green beans the other night 🙂 He might just be a vegetarian like us! XOXO – Bacon

Sweet little pink pig. I LOVE your mom’s accent. She sounds just like she’s supposed to sound, B. She’s perfect – just like the pink pig!
Love and licks,
10/02/2014 at 4:03 pm
aaww – You are so very nice to us here at the Hotel Thompson. Thanks my sweet dear friends! XOXO – Bacon

I know mommy is glad to hear that – that it will pass. Houdini is really sweet baby or mom calls him Cujo. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
10/02/2014 at 10:11 pm
Hahaahahahahah 😉 Cujo wagged his tail the whole time…hilarious 🙂 Loves Fozziemum xx
10/03/2014 at 9:17 am
Well then definitely this puppy is channeling Cujo. The little dude can be so sweet and then when night time gets here – his inner beast comes out. Mommy says its because he’s tired and needs his sleep. I hope he grows out of this. XOXO – Bacon
10/03/2014 at 8:44 pm
He may be a vampire pup 😉 loves Fozziemum xx
10/06/2014 at 3:56 am
Oh snorts. That is too funny. Mommy called him that the other night. He’s had a pretty good weekend and seems to be slightly getting better. Which is good because for a while I thought mom might lose her mommy mind. XOXO – Bacon
10/06/2014 at 5:56 am
Hahahaah I felt that way…but it passes and the time will come when you can barely remember the vamp’s behaviour 🙂 hugs and loves Fozziemum xxx

That is so adorable Bacon! Love it! The mini flavored nylabone worked for Anne and they make soft to hard ones too.
10/03/2014 at 9:14 am
Must add this to mom’s list for this weekend. The little guy needs something. So sweet and loving in the morning and then tired by night time and he becomes Cujo. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
10/03/2014 at 2:13 am
OMD!!! You’ve been immortalised in wool…TWICE!!! That is SO PAWSOME!!!
We asked mom if she had any advice for you re: little Houdini. She suggested trying some weak vegetable or beef stock to soak the kitchen towel in first, then perhaps he’ll be more interested in it? She gave us raw hide chips and bones as teething puppies but she made sure they were bigger than necessary so that we wouldn’t be able to actually eat them, just gnaw away and “scratch the itch”, if you know what we mean.
Have a pawsome weekend!

10/03/2014 at 9:19 am
That sounds like an excellent suggestion. Little Man Houdini needs something. Mommy says she’s tired of being his chew toy – let alone my tail is tired as well – snorts. Will pass this information on to her to see if it helps. Thanks my friends. XOXO – Bacon
10/03/2014 at 5:54 am
OMP!!! Bev did such a great job on that pig!!!! HeeHee! So nice for Bacon mini me to have a friend and from Australia, land of his “birth!” 😀
10/03/2014 at 5:58 am

10/03/2014 at 8:42 pm

10/06/2014 at 5:54 am

10/03/2014 at 9:20 am
Yep – it sure is. Mommy has both of them on her desk at the worky place. She’s says she has to watch them because they get in trouble like me. I have no idea what she means by that – snorts and looks innocent. XOXO – Bacon
