Guess what started Sunday night my friends. You guessed it – Shark Week! It started Sunday on the Discovery Channel. We at the Hotel Thompson look forward to this every single year. It’s so much fun to see sharks – on television of course. Now when mom/dad go to the beach, they will think twice about putting their piggies in the ocean.
And never fear, Discovery Channel has promised not to make the mistake they did back in 2013 when they ticked everyone off during Shark Week. Do you remember what they did? They showed “Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives”. Everyone watched it including us here and then learned that was two hours we couldn’t get back. The show was about the possibility that the giant megalodon shark was still alive. After the show, it was revealed that the “scientists” in the show were really actors and the events in the documentary were scripted. The Discovery Channel got so much backlash for that it wasn’t even funny. And then can you believed that even after all that bad publicity, the Discovery Channel showed the sequel in 2014, “Megalodon: The New Evidence.” Of course, by then we were all like, “Really Discovery Channel?”
We *almost* didn’t watch last year because of their stupid melodrama but for some reasons the sharks kept calling our names.
Even Houdini is getting into Shark Week this year. Mom put his costume on and he was running around the Hotel Thompson. I kept calling him Shark Bait – it was really funny to watch.
So my friends – will you be watching Shark Week?

Dear Bacon – I made the mistake one day of showing my human that I had skills. I know my way around under the hood. And, I’m small so I can get into all of those hard to reach places. Well since he found out, he’s put me to work at the garage. I’m his ‘secret weapon’ that no one sees. So the next time you get your car worked on, think about me. Signed Monkey Wrench
Dear Monkey Wrench – Oh my piggy heavens! Now the secret is out. No wonder it always costs mom/dad and arm and a leg when they take their Jeep in for service. The secret weapon is working on it. WOW – I think you do have skills my little friend. AND I do hope that your human knows that the price is high to maintain an excellent worker of your caliber. You enjoy your tinkering!
Dear Bacon – After a while, one gets tired of waiting for the master to feed us. Sometimes we have to take matters into our own paws. I did just that. I started a garden in the backyard. Most dogs hide their bones but I on the other paw want to make food. All kinds of delectable tastings so when I get hungry all I have to do is take a walk. And don’t worry about watering – I have that covered if you know what I mean – barks! Signed Farmer Pooch
Dear Farmer Pooch – hey I like the idea of having my walking grocery store in my own backyard. I agree with all that you say… except for maybe the personal watering part. I do hope that you wash that food before ingesting… just sayin’. But in the meantime, do you think you can grow me some strawberries and watermelons? I would really appreciate that my friend. Thanks!
Dear Bacon – There I was romping around the farm minding my own business. That’s when my human picked me up to go shopping. Heck I don’t mind. I was already dressed and not doing much anyway. So we went to our local hardware store so that they could get some material for the fences. I sat in the kid seat minding my own business like a good little toddler. So nothing to see here – just a kid in a buggy. Do you like going out on field trips like this? If so, where have you been? Was it fun? Did you sit in the buggy? Signed Romping Kid
Dear Romping Kid – Now that is a vision to behold my friend. Just a kid riding around in a buggy at the local hardware store. What’s to see, right? You look good and let me add that you probably acted better than some two legged kids in the store. Am I right? Snorts with piggy laughter. Once when mom took me to the vet, we stopped by our local Home Depot store to pick up a few things. Mom had my Radio Flyer in the Jeep with her. She pulled it out, helped me in it and pulled me through the store. It was also a vision to behold. A pig being pulled in a Radio Flyer through the Home Depot. I met a lot of people like I’m sure you did this date on your visit.
Dear Bacon – I don’t get it. Mom put some milk in her cup. She set the cup on the counter in front of me. It was like she was inviting me to take a sip so I did. Then she started snapping pictures like a Chinese tourist here at Walt Disney World. I don’t get it. And laughing – oh my gosh – I thought the woman was going to hurt herself she was laughing so hard. Shaking my head – humans are weird. Signed Nosey Kitty
Dear Nosey Kitty – Oh my goodness my friend. I have to admit that *I* almost hurt myself snorting so hard looking at that picture. Look closely – you can almost smell the fun factor – oh my gosh – I’m killing myself here. It’s a great picture my friend. Don’t worry. Your human was just having fun – of course at your expense – but I have to admit it was hilarious.
Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to send me your letters and pictures ❤
