This is My Pitiful Look

18 Jul


My friends – My friends.  I’m working on some extra snuggles from mommy this weekend.  She is not bending on this Summer Camp thing.  Do I really have to go??  I’m really trying hard to beg, cry for mercy, anything.  Nothing is working.

Do I look pitiful enough here in this picture giving mom snuggles?  I was having a deep conversation with her when dad snapped this picture. Mom said that she is going to put this one in a frame beside her bed so she can look at me every night before she goes to sleep.  Don’t worry, she said she is going to pack me one too for Camp.

Squeals – but I don’t wanna go!

      I know right. Doesn’t this face tell you everything you need to know about me going camping? Mom/dad talked to me more about this weekend. They said it will be fun and told me about all kinds of neat things I will be doing. Still, shuffles hooves, I’d rather stay home at the Hotel Thompson. Who’s going to take care of mom while I’m gone? XOXO – Bacon

    Just hide when you spot packing!

      That’s a thought. I gotta see if I can scope out any great hiding spots that mom/dad won’t find me. It’s coming soon. XOXO – Bacon

    And in the end you will love the camp so badly, you will not want to leave there, because of all the friends you will have made there and which you will miss at Hotel T.

      I’m not sure about that my friend. I admit that I have it pretty made here at the Hotel Thompson. Daddy makes sure to tell me all of the time that I’m what you call a ‘privileged pig’. I don’t care what he calls it. I love it. XOXO – Bacon

        Oh, but a pig is a pig is a pig – and to be with others of his kind is normal for pigs.

        We shall see my friend. I’m more of a people pig really. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    What a bummer, B. That face should put this camp idea to sleep. If that doesn’t work, I don’t know what will….. Keep trying, buddy.

    Love and licks,

      Thanks Cupcake. I think mom has made up her mind. And we all know that once mom makes up her mind, it is set in stone. I’m going whether I like it or not. XOXO – Bacon

    I think there is a song about this whole situation that you should listen to…

    Hello muddah, hello faddah,
    Here I am at Camp Granada.
    Camp is very entertaining,
    And they say we’ll have some fun if it stops raining!☔

    I went hiking with Joe Spivey,
    He developed poison ivy.
    You remember Lennard Skinard,
    He got ptomain poisoning last night after dinner!

    All the counselors hate the waiters,
    And the lake has alligators! 🐊
    And the head coach wants no sissies,
    So he reads to us from something called ‘Ulysses’. 📖

    No, I don’t want this should scare ya,
    But my bunkmate has malaria!
    You remember Jeffrey Hardy,
    They’re about to organize a searching party!

    Take me home, oh muddah, faddah.
    Take me home, I hate Granada.
    Don’t leave me out in the forest,
    Where I might get eaten by a bear! 🐻

    Take me home, I promise I will not make noise, 
    Or mess the house with all my toys.
    Oh please don’t make me stay;
    I’ve been here one whole day!

    Dearest faddah, darling muddah,
    How’s my precious little bruddah?
    Let me come home if you miss me;
    I would even let Aunt Bertha hug and kiss me! 👄

    Wait a minute; it stopped hailing.
    Guys are swimming, guys are sailing.🏄
    Playing baseball, gee that’s better.
    Muddah, faddah, kindly disregard this letter

      OMP! I love this. Too funny my friend. I hope I have some fun. I really do. Please think of me…. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh Cuz I feel your pain….well, not really because Mom is NOT sending me off to camp….but I think if I heard that was in THE PLAN, I’d be pouting too. I hate being away from home……purrrhaps the photo by the bedside of you snuggling with Mom will do the trick? Let’s hope so!

    Hugs, Sammy

      Thanks cousin. I’m getting more used to the ideal of going to piggy camp. Not loving it but dealing with. Mom is slowly packing my stuff getting everything ready. Shakes head – I guess I’m going. XOXO – Bacon

    I missed it… Camp was the big secret? How awful! But why?!

    • PigLove

      07/20/2015 at 2:03 pm

      I know! Mom has decided that I need to know how the ‘other side’ lives. She found this camp that hosts anipals from all over and has signed me up for it. She’s serious. She sent them a check last week. Rolls piggy eyes. I have no choice in the matter as she put it. I’m leaving next week. Pray for me. XOXO – Bacon

        This is outrageous! Are you the only anipal at Hotel Thompson going? If so, why? I have questions for your Mom and Dad!!!!

      • PigLove

        07/21/2015 at 9:26 am

        I know! Mom says she will feel bad if I never experience my ‘true’ life in nature. I keep telling her that i will get over it – snorts. She doesn’t get it. So I’m going. XOXO – Bacon

      Thanks my friend. Shakes piggy head. I’m not used to this thing called nature. It’s going to be an eye opener isn’t it? XOXO – Bacon

    Oh come on, Bacon…it’ll be a swell adventure. Think of all the fun things and new peeps to make friends with. 🙂

    • PigLove

      07/20/2015 at 2:11 pm

      I know. Shuffles hooves. I’m getting more used to the idea. It wouldn’t be my first choice in having fun but since mom is dead set in me going, I might as well make the most of it. XOXO – Bacon

    You must’ve done something awful to get the CAMP punishment.


    • PigLove

      07/20/2015 at 2:14 pm

      Nope. Nothing bad at all. Mommy said she has felt bad that I have not seen how regular piggies live. I tried to tell her that I really don’t need to experience that I know that I’m privileged. She won’t give though and found this camp. Shakes head. I guess I’m going. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh think of it as a vacation, Bacon. You might really have fun!

    • PigLove

      07/20/2015 at 2:15 pm

      This is true. I’ll be away from the purr things here and the pooch. It could be good. Sure. But no television – that’s going to drive me crazy for seven days. XOXO – Bacon

    It might be fun to meet other piggies and just think…..there might be girl piggies there.
    My son has always gone on (short) camps with his school and I believe the co ed factor is a point of interest as well as the hikes and flying fox. 😀

    • PigLove

      07/20/2015 at 2:18 pm

      This is true. Mom has been getting my stuff ready for the week. I leave Saturday. Seven entire days away from the comforts of my home. No mommy. No daddy. No purr things. No pooch. What the heck will I do all day? XOXO – Bacon

      • gentlestitches

        07/20/2015 at 8:02 pm

        It will be fun Bacon. The first 24 hours will seem strange but you will settle in. Are you taking your egyptian sheet and some toys from home?

      • PigLove

        07/21/2015 at 9:33 am

        Yes. Mom said I could take my sheet and two toys. She is even packing me a snack box just in case I miss home. And of course, this picture will be framed and sent with me. I’m sure I will be fine but it might be tough for the first couple of days. I’ve never been away from mom for more than 2 days. XOXO – Bacon

      This is true. Mom keeps telling me it will be fun and I will have a blast and that I will beg to go again next year. We shall see. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
