Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –
June 7th is National Best Friend Day . This is a great day to express to your friends how much you really appreciate them and cherish their friendship. Of course, we need to do this year round but today is a special day to share your appreciation and honor your friends.
Best friends are great people. You can spend countless hours with them doing all kinds of things and sometimes just doing nothing at all. Whether you are talking up a storm on the telephone lines or just sitting in a room together watching a movie without talking, friends are great companions. You share everything with your best friend – from your secrets, your goals in life, your desire to endless achievements and your disappointments in life.
So today – go celebrate Best Friend Day. Call up your bestie and spend some time, give them a small gift or hug, call an old friend you haven’t heard from in a while and if you don’t have a best friend – go find one today!
This squirrel is very fortunate to have so many friends here on this blog as well as at the Hotel Thompson. Ya’ll are the best of friends! I think this Snoopy cartoon says it best

Dear Bacon – Who says dogs can’t have game. I’ve been watching NBA Championships on television. Those humans have two legs and do some amazing things with the balls. I figure I have four legs. I bet I could do some amazing things myself. And instead of ‘dunking’ the ball, I can’t jump on the rim. So hey guys – I’m free here – let me assist. Heck with this kind of ability, maybe I should start a team for us anipals. What do you think? Signed Lebron the Lab
Dear Lebron the Lab – Oh pal! Now that is some kind of assist. Is that in the play book? Can you stand up there like that? I wonder? But hey, I think starting your own anipal team would be awesome. Heck, I would love to be on your team. I may be short to the ground but this snout is a powerful weapon to be crossed. You go – and be careful okay.
Dear Bacon – My humans took me to Disney World with them. OMD – I was in doggy heaven! My favorite idol is Pluto. How could you not like him? He is like the bestest happening dog ever! When my humans set me up to meet my idol in person and take my picture, I so could not help it but to smile. Can you see it? I was so deliriously happy! Can you tell? Signed Grinning Ear to Ear
Dear Ginning Ear to Ear – Oh WOW my friend. YES – YES and YES. I can tell that you are so happy in meeting Pluto. I know that it had to make your day. In fact, I would love to meet Miss Piggy one day. My mom is still working on a meet up. Hopefully one day my day will come too just like yours Keep on smiling!
Dear Bacon – What? There’s nothing to see here. You can move right along. You see I was playing with my brother Bert. Bert has a potty mouth. He really does. He called me a bad name. I had to take up for myself. The humans were in the backyard. When they came in, I was the one that got in trouble. How unfair is that? He started it. He really did. Signed Ernie
Dear Ernie – Shaking my piggy head. You know my friend, if Bert called you a name and I’m not saying he did or didn’t, sometimes one has to be the bigger anipal and move on. You see there’s an old saying, “Sticks and stones my break my bones but words will never hurt me.” Sure words can hurt but that’s just what they are – words. And having your humans come in and seeing you bouncing on top of your brother, well that might just be interpreted as being a bully. I’m just saying. Think smarter. If Bert has a potty mouth, you just need to have that come out at the right moment when your humans can hear… maybe record him. Then again, I’ve always heard washing one mouth’s out with soap will take care of that potty mouth. Snorts with piggy laughter.
Dear Bacon – My humans cut back on my treat budget. Now this is just unfair and so wrong on so many levels. So when the humans went to work, I researched their bank account. Who says us dogs can’t be private investigators. Let me tell you one thing. If they are going to cut my budget, they should think about their own food budget. OMD! I can’t begin to tell you how many debit charges I saw for food and treats for humans. My budget was only used one time last month for a measly $12.59. There treat budget was well over $600.00! I say it’s time for fair play. Signed P.I. Treats
Dear P.I. Treats – Dude, you have skills! I’m going to have to send you a private email to find out how you got into your humans banking accounts. I could make so many changes to my humans spending if I had access. I say it’s time for you to have a sit down talk with your humans and tell them what you found. It is way past time for equal food treats.
Dear Bacon – Help Me. My master thinks he is so funny in putting these stupid glasses on my face. I will be the laughing pooch of the neighborhood if this gets out. Shaking my dog head. The insensitivity of master is overbearing. What can I do? Signed Silly Eyes
Dear Silly Eyes – I think these silly eyes require massive payback my friend. I can think of several places you can maneuver them on your master’s body and take pictures. Heck, one of those pictures might even wind up on your families Christmas cards. Now who will be on the butt end of that joke then?
Whatever you decide to do, please keep us posted. And when I first saw your picture. I wasn’t laughing at you. I was laughing with you. Yeah that’s it. Snorts with piggy laughter.
REMEMBER MY FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to email me your letters and pictures ♥
