So mom goes to the store yesterday to buy a few things. One of the things on her list is deodorant. So mom goes down the aisle looking for deodorant and starts laughing. Daddy asks what is up. Mommy said told him that Secret has a line of deodorant out with fragrances from around the world. For instance, Brazil, Hawaii, Paris and she even saw one from Australia. Daddy then started laughing. I mean it is kind of funny. What exactly do these places ‘smell’ like? And by all means, if you had a deodorant from your area, do share – what would it smell like?

Licking my piggy lips right now my friends as I look at this treasure of food porn. Mom/dad went out last night on a date – which is another story in itself – snorts. But look at what they had for dinner – OMP! They went to this restaurant called Bay Breeze which is located in Lovejoy, Georgia. It’s known for their portions and wonderfully delightful food. Now, we are in the south and you know our motto – if you slow down too long, we will fry it 🙂
So mom/dad decided to split this ONE meal. Yes friends – that is ONE meal. Fried flounder, popcorn shrimp and Jumbo shrimp. What you don’t see under all of that is french fries and hush puppies. And mom said there was a side of slaw not in the picture. ALL THAT FOOD and it only cost like $13 bucks for everything. Awesome deal huh? And daddy said they had plenty.
Happy Birthday Sweet Friend!
Today is a very special day for a very special lady in our lives – Jean, the mom of Shoko and Kali of the Canadian Cats. This picture was taken early last year when my mom/dad got to meet Jean and her husband Bill in Alabama. Talk about a wonderful time that was! My mom/dad still talk about that trip!
Today we want to wish Jean a very Happy Birthday – may all your dreams come true! We wish you all of your love! ❤
Please my friends join us today for this wonderful birthday greeting.
National Corn Chip Day
Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –
“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”
.January 29th is mandated as National Corn Chip Day! Corn chips are right up my alley if you know what I mean. Who can turn down a good chip? Can you believe that 50 years ago (way before this journalists time), few Americans even knew what corn chips were? That’s amazing to me. Today, we can’t imagine life without those tasty little morsels. They were first marketed in 1961 and have been going strong since.
So, in honor of today being National Corn Chip Day – go out and eat some chips… with salsa… with dip… plain… with a friend… yeah, I know the pig is going to get his share! I think I even heard his humans saying they were going to put corn chips in their chili for dinner tonight. Now *that* does sound lip smacking good!
Paw Time with Houdini
Yawns my friends – it’s been a LONG weekend. If you remember, last weekend I was suppose to go for my spa day. But due to the Snowmageddon weather, it got cancelled. I need my spa day desperately. Mom keeps calling me a street dog – I don’t get that. Do I look like a street dog in this picture?
I mean heck I’m fluffy and on and yeah my hair might be in my eyes and yeah I might need a bubble bath but a street dog? Really mom? So keep your fingers crossed for me dear friends that tomorrow I get to go and meet my friends at the Spa – and hopefully Fifi the cute little poodle will be there too. She’s adorable!
This week, I leave you with a spectacular toy that I got at Christmas. It was a fun toy. I say was because I’ve been taking lessons from my buddy Easy across the pond in toy destruction. I’m still in training and I have a long way to go but I’m getting there. Have fun with the video. Make sure you turn your sound up. The noise is fabulous. Even my mom LOVES that sounds constantly for hours. She always tells me, “Seriously Houdini?” I think I should get her one to play with too. What do you think?
Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well. Happy weekend!
Bacon’s Show and Tell
Welcome my friends to Bacon’s Show and Tell for January. This month we are talking about something embarrassing that has happened in our life. It could be something from child hood, adult hood – last week for that matter.
My mom/dad are known for their troublesome ways. In fact, I do believe that trouble finds them each and every time they leave the Hotel Thompson. It’s just going to happen. I’ve accepted that in my piggy life. So today, I want to share two stories with you on my parents on something embarrassing.
First up – Dad
Now if you have been reading my blog for any length of time you know that dad is a character. One night dad and mom decided to go out to dinner down the street at a local cafe. Dad put on some sweats and an old t-shirt, nothing elaborate. They drove down to the dinner, got out and started to walk to the front door. The restaurant had windows all along the front of it and you could see inside as well as the people see outside. Dad went to step up on the walkway and right about that time his pants got tired and fell down to his ankles. Nothing like dinner and a show huh? Snorts with piggy laughter.
Second up – Mom
Sweet mom. Dad’s always picking on her and getting away with it in public places. You know for two old people, they can be cute this way. Dad will sometimes sneak a kiss or pat mom on the butt and nobody ever catches him doing it. One time, mom/dad were at the mall at a store named Macy’s. They were walking around and mom thought she was going to pat dad on the butt like he does her. She went and did it. Well about that time, this elderly lady turns the corner and catches mom right in the action. Oh dear piggy heavens. You would have thought with the way the elderly lady acted that she had caught mom grabbing dad’s front side and not his back side. It was priceless. Of course, dad walked off leaving mom standing there all embarrassed while said lady gave mom a tongue lashing like you wouldn’t believe. When mom tried to walk away, the elderly lady followed her telling her that her actions were unladylike and very unbecoming a southern lady.
Thanks and I Got a Snowball!
Oh my friends. I received a package in the mail the other day. I love receiving packages. This one had my name on it but dad made me wait to open it up until mom got home from the worky place. Spoil sport that he is huh? Snorts with piggy laughter. Mom *finally* got home and yes it seemed like YEARS to me with this package teasing me all day. So mom helped me open and OMP – Squeals with piggy delight. I was one of many winners on a contest that our friends at Animal Couriers had a couple of weeks ago. They sent me a desk calendar with some awesome pictures of some of the pets that have transported. Smiling – and trust me there are some beautiful pics in it! I’m going to let mommy keep this calendar on her desk here at the Hotel Thompson. That way both of us can see it every day.
And I Got a Snowball!
Can you believe that my friends? An entire snowball all to myself. Okay, maybe not the cold outdoor snowball you might be thinking of but I prefer this snowball and so does my mom – snorts with piggy laughter.

Many, many moons ago mom always dreamed of having a little black piggy that she would name Bacon. One year, it presented itself to her that her dream could come true. She found me on a Farm bulletin and she fell in love with me instantaneous… as I did her when I saw her the first day. I like to think that we were made for each other’s love. She took me home to the Hotel Thompson and can you believe she had converted one of the bedrooms into a nursery for me. ❤ – what’s not to love knowing that huh?
The first couple of days were touch and go. She had never had a live in piggy and I had never had a human. But we grew with each other and our bond was stronger every day. That’s when it dawned on me. I need to write about my treasured life here in the south at the Hotel Thompson. How many pigs do you know write their own blog and share their experiences in life at large?
So there you go. That is how piglove got started. It was an outlet for me to share and meet new friends. And hey, if I made you laugh so hard that it rained down your leg – then my day is complete 🙂
Spotlight Thursday – Meet Easy
Welcome my friends to our first edition of SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY. This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better. Some of them, you may already know. We hope that you enjoy this new series!
Name: Argentia Mists Easy Rider
Web/Blog Page: Easyweimaraner (Be sure to pop over and say hey – remember to tell Easy that Bacon and Houdini sent you.)
What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? I have to be honest, right? Well… ok… my first thought was: they look simple, that’s easy going…
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? As I entered my bed… I had to place humans on efurry side to make sure that I will not fall out, but that was the moment I was at home.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? As I swallowed the brother of Sponge Bob, the infamous kitchen sponge… fortunately I could remove that guy via emergency exit and the two dogtors could pack up their knives.
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I think both, but in a different way. My dad is my best friend but a rival too. So we always have to duke it out, that I’m the king of this castle and that this mom there is MY mom. And speaking of mom she knows that I’m the boss and therefore we have no hierarchy battles. I’m her best friend, no if’s no butt’s, butt that’s exhausting sometimes….
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? They sometimes overestimate my abilities. Yes. I’m eggs-tremely smart and YES I’m a Weimaraner. And that means I’m the dog with the human brain… so how shall I know things they don’t know? To err is human counts for me too :o)
Let’s Party – What’s Your Band Name?
Oh, this is going to be good my friends. I saw this on Facebook a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t resist in sharing with all of my blogville friends. Snorts – let the party begin – what is *your* band name?
Mine – of course I don’t wear underwear but my body is black. The last thing I ate was Cheerios. So my band name is The Black Cheerios. Sounds kind of goth huh?
Houdini – no underwear but he’s gray. He had duck. The Gray Ducks. Classical?
Mouse Girl – she’s black/white. She had Iams. Black and White Iams? Shaking my head.
Hemi – He’s Orange and he ate some of dad’s chips a while ago. The Orange Chips.
Now here come the good ones – mom and dad – snorts with piggy laughter. I can’t resist including them.
Dad ate some chips – Sour Cream and Onion to be exact and his undies are gray… I know because I watched him put them on – snorts. The Gray Chips (sounds old huh?) or The Gray Sour Cream and Onion
Mom ate a biscuit and I saw those fluorescent green undies this morning – hubba-hubba. Her band name –
The Florescent Green Biscuit – go mom!
So what is *your* band name my friends?
