Attention fellow anipals and humans. Me and my Cousin Sammy have collaborated together to initiate Anipal Appreciation Day scheduled for February 15, 2016. What better time to get together and share the love than the month of February.
Whether you are a cat, a dog, a horse, a bird, a bun bun, a pig or a human – let’s get together for a day surrounded by love. Why wait for the could have, should have or would have after one of us crosses the Rainbow Bridge. Let’s celebrate life now and let each other know what they mean to us.
For example, my Cousin Sammy. I’ve known him for years now. He is a great guy – a bestest friend and always willing to lend a helping paw. He goes out of his way to make you feel loved and welcomed even though at times I know he doesn’t feel well. And you know what? He gets that from his humans. And technically, he and I *may* be related somewhere down the road with his parents and my parents being second, third or fourth cousins or something. So there’s a shout out to my buddy.
This is what we are asking you to do. Join me and Cousin Sammy on February 15, 2016. The rules are as follows:
Rules for Anipal Appreciation Day:
- Post your Anipal Appreciation Day blog on FEBRUARY 15, 2016.
- Title your blog Anipal Appreciation Day.
- Put the badge below on your blog post for the day.
- Give shout outs not only in the posting of your blog but throughout the day with the comments you may get. There is no set number of shout out’s you are required to do – let your heart lead you. We are *not* leaving anyone out. If you don’t make the post on a blog, be sure to check messages and comments throughout the day that people and anipals might leave.
- If you can, link back your shout outs in your blogs for them to find.
- HAVE FUN! This is the most important rule – have FUN and share the LOVE!

Dear Bacon – Okay I admit it. I’m in a predicament… some would say stuck between a limb and another limb. I blame it on these pesky squirrels that seem to have taken over my yard. I was
chasing showing one how to get out and he jumped in the tree. I followed. I know you have Journalist Rocky the Squirrel that lives in your backyard. Any suggestions on keeping the little rats squirrels out of my kingdom? Signed Hanging
Dear Hanging – Well you do look kind of uncomfortable there my friend. The first thing is to get to know those squirrels. I assure you they are not as pesky as you think. Really – I assure you. Make friends – you will be surprised what they will do for you think. Journalist Rocky the Squirrel and his clan keep out the other unwanted dogs and purr things from my kingdom 🙂
Dear Bacon – Honestly this is *not* what it looks like. I wasn’t kicking anyone. I wasn’t having a momentarily lapse of judgement. I wasn’t going crazy. You’re going to laugh when I tell you what I was doing. Really – are you ready? I was learning how to swing dance. Yep, swing dance. It works much better with a partner but I was practicing my moves. What do you think about that little pig? Signed Swinger
Dear Swinger – I am highly impressed my friend. Really I am. That is such a hard dance to learn and I’m impressed that you are doing it. If my hips could move like that, I would so join up for lessons with you.
Dear Bacon – I’m sitting in a pan I am. It’s the pan for the dog who is a hog (no offense). He chases me and tries to sting me like a bee. He no eat until he kisses my feet. Signed Seuss Without a Rhyme
Dear Seuss Without a Rhyme – Snorts! No offense taken. I get it. You and the dog are frenemies. You keep your enemies close to you to know what they are up to – usually no good. Instead of sitting in his bowl, perhaps hide that huge bowl. No bowl to fill, no food to eat and you can act all innocent like you don’t know what they are talking about when they ask what happened to his bowl. See where I’m going with this? Cause you know after a while, it’s going to get boring sitting in an empty bowl. Unless nature calls… then you have something to fill.
Dear Bacon – I’m telling you, I’m innocent! I got this pillow off of the master’s bed. He uses it every night and I thought it would help me sleep too. I went to sleep and then the next thing I knew the master was home asking me what I did. Really, I did nothing but sleep. The pillow must have exploded all by itself! Signed Innocent
Dear Innocent – I can see by the look on your face that you are not guilty at all. Nope. That is not the look of guilt. I do believe you. I think you were sleeping and minding your own business. What probably happened is that maybe your inner dog came out while you were sleeping during one of your dreams. I know this first hoof because I have a deviled ham side that comes out from time to time. Shivers – and trust me my friend. He is a little stinker. So, off you go now to explain that to your master. I know he will just have to understand.
Dear Bacon – Oh dear mercy to the heavens. Please help me. My humans have went over the deep end. Signed Fill in for Nicki Minaji
Dear Fill in for Nicki Minaji – Hubba – Hubba. Look at you my sweet friend. I think you got the looks and the skills to pull this off. I wouldn’t be upset with your humans – I would tell them that if they are going to dress you up like Ms. Minaji, then they have to treat you like the star she is!
REMEMBER FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please remember to send me your pictures and letters to my email ❤

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –
“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”
Today, February 2nd is Groundhog Day. According to folklore, there are two options that could happen today:
The largest groundhog day celebration takes place every year in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
Personally, I hope that spring is right around the corner. I could go for some warmer weather here at the Hotel Thompson. And I know that oinker Bacon would enjoy it.
Good luck on whatever you want. I’ll be back soon! Oh and P.S. Some channels on the television are showing the movie Groundhog Day on repeat all day. Is there any day that you would like to repeat like in Groundhog Day?
U P D A T E –
This was the view this morning going to work – was there any doubt that the groundhog would NOT see his shadow? So here in Hotatlanta – would are in for an Early Spring.
I don’t know about you my friends but I’m all for that!
