Bacon here from Summer Camp. This weekend started off slow with Summer Camp. Everyone was getting to know one another and learn the ways around the camp here. It’s gotten a lot better now. I even met a new friend – Scott. He’s kind of cool and is from the North Georgia mountain areas. He goes outside all of the time and we are kind of hanging with each other.
They really believe in the activities at this place and are constantly encouraging us to participate. Yesterday we had arts and crafts so I went. Let me just say that it wasn’t my fault. Really it wasn’t. I got to class late and no one told me that the macaroni was for making jewelry and not for eating. What can I say? I was a little hungry. You might get a call from my counselor about that incident.
And speaking of counselors. Mom are you for real about this place? Did you check into this at all? They call the boys here Blueberries and the girls Strawberries. Rolls piggy eyes. That is so crazy and just makes me hungry. But I’m getting sidetracked. Our counselors have nicknames. I bet you just can’t guess what my counselor’s nickname is. Go ahead. I’ll wait for you to guess. Then again, no I won’t since I only have ONE hour of computer time tonight. His nickname is Wolf. Really mom? Gotta run – my time is running close and I have to get back to my cabin before it gets too dark.

Hey friends – I’m stepping in for big brother Bacon this week since he is away at Summer Camp. I hope I brought him so justice – enjoy! ❤ Houdini
Dear Houdini – This is not funny. Really it’s not. My human is crazy. Can you save me please? Signed Potato in Waiting
Dear Potato in Waiting – BARKS! I gotta admit that it’s a little funny. Really think about it. How many anipals can say they look like a hot potato and you are hot. I say save the look for Halloween and go for it. You will win so many contests for originality and beauty.
Dear Houdini – I heard about your accident the other day with a pillow that exploded at the Hotel Thompson. I *know* you can relate. You *have* to relate. I was sitting on the front porch minding my own business when this cushion suddenly blew up for no apparent reason. I was just as shocked as everyone else. Signed Mystified
Dear Mystified – I know! It’s unbelievable how those things happen out of the blue – spontaneous combustion does happen. It is highly documented. I think pillows only do this when dogs are around so that we can personally take the blame. Yeah – that has to be it. Surely it’s not because of something us sweet devout pooches did. No way! I say cover yourself my friend. No camera documentation means you didn’t do it. I’m sticking to that story and you should too!
Dear Houdini – I know you are just a mere dog but let me tell you something, I’ve earned my stripes. I’m fierce. I’m strong. I’m a rocking cat that can shake your world if you don’t obey me. You just remember that about us cats okay. Cats rule and dogs drool! Signed Stripes
Dear Stripes – Barks and laughter! Wait a minute while I pick myself up from laughing and rolling around here on the floor. Cats rule and dogs drool – too funny. Okay maybe we dogs do drool when we are excited but there is no way that cats rule – sorry Hemi and Mouse Girl here. Us doggies are higher on the who is in charge chain. And your stripes – oh my dog! Really? Walk away from the sun my friend and tell me about those stripes then – Barks!
Dear Houdini – There I was sitting on the sofa from another long day of working on the farm. I was so exhausted. I had the television on for sound and that’s when I saw it. A commercial for a dating service for Farmers Only. WOW! I never knew it existed. Do you think I have a chance with a lady? Signed Stetson
Dear Stetson – YES you do. We all have chances. And how could anyone say no to a cowboy hat? Mommy says those are hot!
Dear Houdini – There is a problem with this slide. Really there is. I slide down it all of the time. But this date, I did’t slide. What the hamster world happened? Signed Stuck
Dear Stuck – Perhaps it was too dry to slide down. Perhaps you have more fluff than usual and it was a little tight? It could happen. I know sometimes my t-shirts get a little snug like that and I have to cut back a bit. And then perhaps you just need a gentle push? Call me if you need some assistance. I’ll get the jaws of life out to get you out of a tight spot. In the meantime, take it easy okay.
Remember Dear Bacon can’t happen without you my friends. Keep your letters and pictures coming to my email.
