It’s ALL a Conspiracy Theory

That’s it!  I’ve totally figured it out my friends.  It’s *all* a conspiracy theory.  It really is.  I finally know after all these years.  I know I’m rambling but I get that way when I’m overly excited.  Okay – let me breathe.

Alright here it is – I’ll explain it to you.  Samsung has come out with a refrigerator that allows you to see inside of it without opening the door.  It’s kind of like a piggy porn movie.  No really it is.  I can see all of the lovely stuff inside but I’m stuck behind an iron gate and can’t get to it kind of situation.  But, it gets worse.  Some of these refrigerators allow you to access them from your cell phone to see what is inside of them.  Yep, no joke.  You are doing your grocery shopping and you are wondering, “Do we need eggs?”  You can access an app on your cell phone to look inside of your refrigerator to see how your egg status is.  Now what about that?  Scary huh?

It explains everything.  You still don’t get it?  Okay let’s further explore Samsung.  My television in my bedroom is Samsung.  It’s a flat screen.  Now let’s just think about Samsung.  If they now have the technology to put a camera in a refrigerator to check out what is in the refrigerator who is to say they didn’t have this type of technology years ago and was secretly testing it in televisions.  Hey it could happen.  I mean it really makes sense.  How else would mom know at times that I’m not asleep in my bedroom and I’m playing.  My Samsung television is secretly watching me, taking my pictures and sending them to mom’s cell phone.  I’m telling you her cell phone is powerful!  Because when I get up in the middle of the night, it’s like mom knows!  She always tells me, “Go back to sleep Bacon, no playing.”  How does she know?

Even better – daddy’s cell phone is a Samsung.  Now this is even scarier.  Sometimes mom leaves daddy what they call a honey do list during the day when she goes to the worky place.  At times mom calls home to ask daddy if he has done something.  Of course, he tries to snow her over and say yes.  But she always knows.  How is that possible?!  I do believe daddy’s Samsung cell phone is telling on us and what we do when mom is away.  It has to be.

So you see now you understand what I mean when I say it is all a conspiracy theory.  Samsung is out to get us all.  Do you have Samsung products in your household?  If so, now you know!   Personally, now I’m off to look for hidden cameras around the Hotel Thompson.  They have to be here – I just know it!

Paw Time with Houdini

Do you see the Yorkshire Terrier – namely MOI – in this picture?  Barks!  Here’s the story.  You see that white blankie?  That was actually folded on mom’s chaise with her pillows.  Someone – looks around innocently – drug it off the sides to overlap underneath the chaise.  Why you ask?  Of course to make me a secret cave.

Do you see the red blanket on the floor towards the left?  That blanket was on the sofa with daddy.  I drug it to the chaise and underneath so I could have something soft to lay on under the chaise in my secret cave.  Of course the toy in the picture – that’s my teething ring I’ve had since I was a baby.  I was working on getting that to bring into my cave with me when mom busted me with the camera.

What?  You see a toy near me.  Oh don’t worry.  That’s my stuffed possum.  I drag him everywhere by his tail.

So, have you made any secret caves lately?

Yorkie Yoga

Hello everyone!  Since mom/dad have been on this DIEt kick, I thought I would come in today to share some Yorkie Yoga with everyone.  Yoga is something that everyone can do.  It’s a relaxation technique that can help your stress levels beyond what you can imagine.

So here you go step by step.  Paws together, butt tucked, tummy tight and start to push upwards with your belly.  Pushing upwards with your belly, also push your nose towards the sky.  Hold this position for a few minutes.  I like to call it pointing to the stars.  After a few minutes, relax and smile up at your humans.  That brings down their stress levels to.  Repeat throughout the day as often as needed.  Be the star my friends – BE THE STAR!

And if that doesn’t work.  Lay down on your belly….. and take a nap.

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Shrimp

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to 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 series!

Nam😻e:  Shrimp (aka “Her Highness”)

Age:  7 years 

Location:   Oregon, USA

Web/Blog Page:  Hairballexpress  or on Twitter: @Cheap_Trills 

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  “DUDE! NEW CAN

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  .The humans had picked up a few of my sisters and my brother, and then picked me up, and I started batting human #1’s earrings, and both she and human #2 said, “This is the one!” at the same time!😾

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   When I dropped that nice, fresh house fly into the human’s coffee. How was I to know she only likes half and half?

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  😹 BOTH -(I’m just that Good)!  But definitely human #1 most of all. Her heart melts when I trill and tuck her in every night.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That I’m safe. (They haven’t seen what I can do to a mouse).

Noises at Night

As I lay in bed at night sleeping, I have to think about the different sounds I hear coming from outside my bedroom window.  Now that we are in the Summer months, it seems like everything is coming alive, especially at night.  So there I was last night, tucked in and waiting for Mr. Sandman to visit.  I listened intently.

I could hear grasshoppers.  One I’ve nicknamed Sensei because he is so very loud and seems to hang out right near my window to the right every single night.  It’s like he tells me goodnight.

I could hear kids laughing and yelling.  Heck it’s almost 9pm – why are there kids still outside playing in the dark?  They better be chasing lightening bugs and not chasing trouble.

I could hear the faint sounds of a radio from the people next door.  Those neighbors are Asian so the music had a chime-chime affluence.  It was soothing to me.

I could hear dogs barking – it must be that pesky little Chihuahua across the street hanging out with his posse and being bad again leaving nuggets on everyone’s front yard.

  I could hear frogs.  They sounded like enormous frogs with giant legs and deep guts.  There are LOADS of them in my magical backyard due to the creek that runs behind it.

Then the most deep sound of them all started.  It’s enough to shake our little house and it comforts me enough to rock me to sleep.  What is it you ask?  Of course, its dad snoring. ❤

What sounds do you hear at night when you are trying to go to sleep?

Travels in the South

Have you been enjoying our Travels in the South my friends?  Today we continue our travels with Fozziemom and Fozziedad who visited with us all the way from Australia.  Now, the month previous was Fozziedad’s birthday so everyone agreed to celebrate his birthday when he came to the States.

On this date, they all ventured downtown Atlanta to hang out for a bit and then to go to lunch.  Since Fozziedad plays the guitar, mom researched and found a great shop close to the restaurant they would be going to for lunch.  They all went into the store where they got to hear Fozziedad play and were totally amazed and I do believe mom was star struck ❤  Fozziedad is amazing and trust us, he knows his way around a guitar.  Mom/dad said if they lived in Australia they would for sure have to go and hang out when he plays.

After the guitar store visit, they went to eat at one of my mom/dad’s favorite restaurants called Fogo de Chão.  This is an all you can eat type Brazilian Steakhouse.  Now don’t worry.  This place has everything – from the meat eaters to the vegetarians you will be happy here. You first start off with a huge salad bar that has everything that you can imagine.  You can work on that salad first or have it with your meat selections.  As you eat, they bring skewers of different varieties of meat to your table where they then carve it onto your plate.  You choose what you want and how much.  Now I have to tell you a secret.  My mom/dad love this restaurant, especially these little rolls they bring to your tables in baskets.  Mom says they mysterious and magically reappear in the basket every time you ask.  Isn’t that amazing?

Everyone was instructed not to eat breakfast and have to empty bellies for this adventure at the restaurant.  And I must admit, everyone got their fill – even dessert for the birthday boy.  It was an awesome time.  Sometimes when daddy puts me to bed, I ask him to tell me this story about the restaurant.  I can just imagine myself laying up under the table, hooves up in the air like I just don’t care and being hand fed the remarkable steak at this place.  Give me a moment….. okay let’s continue.

Afterwards, the group wanted to go on a further adventure.  You see a couple of years ago, downtown Atlanta installed SkyView Atlanta.  Skyview Atlanta is a Ferris Wheel that is over 20 stories above Centennial Park.  They have individual gondolas that are climate controlled.  Did you hear that?  Climate controlled as in the day everyone visited, it was an air conditioned gondola that they rode in.  Can you believe that?  Ferris Wheels have come a long ways baby.  When you are up in the gondola, mom said you could see all kinds of views of downtown.  It was totally awesome!  And of course no trip is complete without a picture of your memories.

Oh, are you asking where daddy was?  He was guarding the Jeep – snorts with piggy laughter.  Due to dad’s vision, he can’t go up that far so he sat this one out and partied in the Jeep until we got done.   Don’t fear – he had a great time rocking out to Queen.

Mommy is in Deep Trouble

You see, this past weekend mommy was grounded at the house.  First off, she has been tired and doing too much.  She keeps saying that she’s playing the ‘catch up’ game for a couple of weeks now.  Well, Houdini took that to heart.  How so?  Well he hid her Jeep keys Friday night.  It was like he was telling her something, right?

Well he was telling her something alright. Guess what Saturday was and mom never said a word?  It was Houdini’s two year birthday.  Can you believe she ‘forgot’?  She admitted to the little guy that she forgot, that she would make it up and wouldn’t let it happen again.  Now, Houdini took it pretty well but trust me.  That little pooch is going to make mommy pay the price.

This is the dude’s picture from last year on his first birthday where mom threw him a surprise doggy party – full with doggy ice cream, friends and presents.  So you see, you know he was expecting the same.

Has your humans ever forgotten your important date?  What do you think mom should do?

Dear Bacon

 Dear Bacon – Who says that humans get to have all of the fun?  Us anipals can appreciate a good movie too.  For instance, one of the best movies ever made – can you guess it?  Star Wars of course!  I mean come on piggy – don’t you love it?  The lights, the action, the fights, marrying Hans Solo – what is there not to like?!  What do you think about the movie?  And what is your favorite movie.  You can tell me.  Signed Princess Leia Kitty

Dear Princess Leia Kitty – Well I can see my friend from your outfit that you really, REALLY like to get into your character and enjoy your movies.  I’m piggy enough to admit that I’ve never watched any of the Star Wars movies.  Now before you hiss too loudly, remember I’m only 4.5.  My dad hasn’t introduced me yet.  But I can guarantee you that after I read him your letter, he will.  Lucky me.

My favorite movie?  Of course Charlotte’s Web.  What’s not to like?  Snorts and oinks!

 Dear Bacon – I know you have a pesky cat at the Hotel Thompson.  I have one here too.  Shaking my head.  Why are cats so evil?  They say their misunderstood.  Barks – as if.  They have the humans completed snowed – completely!  Us anipals know the truth.  You see, our humans were at work.  The pesky fur ball got onto the coffee table, looked at me and started to push the bowl of flowers towards the end of the table.  I was like NO! – but of course why listen to me – I’m just the dog as he puts it.  As he knocked the bowl off the table, I couldn’t help it with my expression and of course the turd took my picture.  Guess who got blamed for it?  Yep, moi.  Because we all know the cute little kitty would never do such a thing.  Help me my friend.  Signed OMD!

Dear OMD! – That pesky no good for nothing flea bag!  Yes I understand your situation completely.  Hemi here thinks he is the master and does things very similar.  Like smacking me hard on the fanny when no one is looking and when I try to take a nip at him squealing to the high heavens.  Heck, I wasn’t going to eat him – I was cleaning him… yeah that’s the story.  So you see, I know your pain.  I think perhaps your little friend should have some payback.  Call me – I’m sure we can come up with something like honey or peanut butter accidentally of course being left out for him to be covered in… or maybe a swift bath in the toilet.  What?  I would never hurt kitty – nope not at all 🙂

Dear Bacon – We have this cool thing in our hood called doggy daycare.  It is like the total bomb in the summer!  The bus comes to our house, picks us up and takes us on field trips and play dates and the doggy facility.  OMD!  I so highly recommend this.  We go twice a week and this is our picture from the bus – it’s so cool.  This was our “we aren’t doing anything-sweet-and-innocent” looks on the way home.  Dude, you gotta check it out and see if they have one in your hood.  Signed Summer Fun

Dear Summer Fun – Oh my piggy heavens!  That sounds like so much fun for sure!  You get out, your humans get a break and you make lots of friends and see things all over.  Oh my gosh!  I’m so green with jealous.  I gotta check this out.  Thanks my friends for letting me know of this awesome experience.  I wanna go on field trips too!


Dear Bacon – We were set up!  We found several notes in the woods saying there was going to be a party here at the house and that cover charge was a buck.  We came but we were set up – there was no party!  The room was dark and no one was at home.  What a joke!  We were hoping for a great time and a full keg.  Should we stand here until someone comes home?  Signed Buck Party

Dear Buck Party – OMP!  The cover charge was a buck?  Shaking my piggy head.  Oh my friends – you were definitely set up on this one.  I’m so sorry but in a way you have to admit it was kind of funny.  Should you stand there until the family comes back?  Probably not.  I wouldn’t want to see what they have in store for you if you do.  I say chalk this one up to experience and keep tracking the woods to see if the familiar smell of the person that set you comes back.

Take care my friends.

Remember friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to email me your letters and pictures.
