Dear Bacon – Help! Let alone I had to get a bath. Let alone they wrapped me up like a tight burrito so much so that my tongue hung out. Then the human had to take my picture. Really? I can’t even fight it I’m wrapped so tight. Any thoughts on how to handle this fiasco? Signed Burrito in Training
Dear Burrito in Training – Let’s look at this on a positive note. Your humans love you so much that they (1) bathed you; (2) wrapped you up to dry you so you wouldn’t get sick in this awful cold weather and then (3) took a pic of you. Sounds to me like they are working hard towards next years Christmas cards. You can never plan too far in advance my friend. So this is what you do. Wait for them to go to sleep – you know the snoring, tongue hanging out and drooling from the mouth. Then take their picture to replace yours. Simple as that. Snorts.
Dear Bacon – I’m not sure about you but us dogs, we can spell. We know exactly what you are spelling when you say V.E.T. I’m not the kind of dog that runs but you spell V.E.T. and I’m gone like the speed of light. Nobody likes those guys at the V.E.T. office – I don’t care how many treats you get. What say you Bacon? Signed G.O.N.E.
Dear G.O.N.E. – I concur. Nobody likes the peeps at the vet’s office. No way! I mean my goodness they think giving you a treat makes up for the violation they give to your captain’s quarters – I don’t think so. I mean heck, at least you can buy me a Mint Julep or something first – snorts with piggy laughter.
Dear Bacon – This should serve the human for leaving their camera phone on last night. I left them a little something to find on their camera roll. What do you think – do I have it or what? Signed Hot for Hollywood
Dear Hot for Hollywood – Oh absolutely my friend. How could anyone resist that cute little face and tongue? I wish I could be a fly on the wall when your human finds that picture on their camera phone. I bet they laugh and then oohh and aaaww for hours!
Dear Bacon – I don’t get it. I live in the south and every time someone new sees me, they say, “Bless his little heart.” I don’t get it. What does that exactly mean. You live in the south – do you get that often? Signed This is My Happy Face
Dear This is My Happy Face – You see here in the south, that is a term of endearment. Peeps often say that for no apparent reason. I’ve heard peeps tell this to babies, older peeps, anipals and to each other. I don’t think they mean anything by it. Nope not at all. How could they? I look at you and see a masculine little guy that is going somewhere in the world. You just accept that term as a compliment, hold your head up high and march right on into 2016!
Dear Bacon – I was asleep – you know taking one of many naps during the day. I had my little hoodie on for some added heat. My human woke me up and said, “Say Cheese?” All my tummy heard was cheese so I stuck my tongue out. Don’t you know that was the moment my mom decided to snap my pic. Why – tell me why – do these humans do this? Signed Sticking Tongue Out
Dear Sticking Tongue Out – Personally I think sometimes the humans try to catch us off guard in an attempt to get an amusing look from us for their cameras. Every once in a while, I let mom *think* she has me and I do something for her amusement. What can I say? It keeps the humans happy therefore we get more treats. I say play it for all its worth my friend. Work it!
Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to email me your letters and pictures ❤

Poor little Burrito. The secret is to shake a big tsunami of water at them as soon as they take you out of the tub, and then RUN. If you keep zooming around the house, they won’t ever make you a burrito again. Good luck, buddy. And definitely snap that picture of your sleeping peeps tonight…..
Love and licks,

Baaaconnnn. Us peeps and furimals here in Chattanooga know what the locals mean when they say “Bless his little heart.” I guess it’s better you didn’t give the poor little pug-looking dog the real scoop. I am lips-zipped Lexi.

Snorts with piggy laughter. Then you know what the southern translation of that phrase, “Bless his little heart” means. That is hilarious to know!! and sshh – my pig lips are sealed too. XOXO – Bacon
