Bacon’s Show and Tell – Reminder

Hello friends – are you having fun with my Bacon’s Show and Tell?  This month let’s talk about embarrassing moments.  I know that humans had them all of the time when growing up.  I hear stories from mom/dad and trust me – some of them are juicy!

So this month we are highlighting embarrassing moments from childhood. Tell everyone about something that happened that was so life shattering embarrassing in childhood but now you can look back and laugh about.

Mark your calendars – Bacon’s Show and Tell is scheduled for:

Blog Hi-Jack from Mom and Dad

Hey Bacon’s friends.  This is Bacon’s mom and dad here.  We are hi-jacking the little guy’s blog this afternoon for an important announcement.  Today is also our pig-son’s birthday.  Our baby Bacon turns the big 5 today!  Can you believe he was born on our anniversary?  Just one more little sign that his adoption was meant to be with us.


Bacon has brought so much joy here at the Hotel Thompson.  When I tell you there is *never* a dull moment, that is certainly the truth.  Bacon is like the little child we never had.  He’s very smart – as you all know from him writing his blog here – cough cough.  It doesn’t matter what kind of day you’ve had, how much stress you encounter in the world – he is always here waiting for you with a snort and oink.  I’m not sure what me or Jim would do without Bacon and our other ‘children’ in our lives. They bless us beyond our imagination.

So today, we raise our glass with you our friends to send out a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the best pig-son we could ever have.  And here’s to years and years of more happiness and adventures!  Help us out our friends in wishing Bacon the best of all birthdays!

Bacon – may all your dreams come true.  May you have more delights today than ever before.  We shall celebrate tonight with your favorite birthday ‘cake’… a piggy plate full of your favorites – apples, bananas, strawberries, watermelon and grapes.

We love you our boy!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Hitchens and Sagan

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!

♥ FRIENDS – make sure you leave some messages.  Hitchens and Sagan will be checking in throughout the day and answering comments. ♥

Name:  Hitchens and Sagan Hamilton Pig White

Age:  3 years young and 6 months

Location:  Austin, Texas

Web/Blog Page:  I don’t have a blog anymore, I got way too busy eating grass.  But I will post to Instagram in between grass breaks! Stop on by!! @hitchensandsaganpigs

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I was pretty scared at first but I quickly warmed up after I realized all mom and dad wanted to do was cuddle and I LOVE cuddling!

I was nervous at first but I quickly warmed up to them after Mom gave me a belly rub and dad gave me treats. Now all I want to do is cuddle and chase them around.  I love them so much!

♥ Hitchens grey/black ♥ ♥Sagan black/white ♥

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  When I was allowed to cuddle on the couch like the meowing and barking creatures.  Mom even gave me my own blanket to cuddle with on the couch and she gave me my own castle!!!

When I arrived home for the first time and I saw the giant yard!  I used to live in an apartment with the first family I was with.  I couldn’t run around, but now I do and I LOVE IT!  I love to chase and be chased by my brother Dexter.  I’m trying to be friends with the cats but they aren’t fans of me just yet.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   I can only mention ONE?? The earliest one I can think of was when I was about 3 months old.  I REALLY wanted to cuddle on the couch with mom but she refused.  I even politely (mom says I was screaming) asked my grandma if I could cuddle with her, she said no too.  I got pretty upset so I decided to take a stack of papers that was on the coffee table shelf and carry it across the room.  Mom was upset and chased me away at first but then after a while she laughed and let me cuddle.

What are you talking about?  I’m a perfect angel!! I never EVER pee on the floor, or scream at the top of my piggy lungs in order to get attention.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I have both of them wrapped around my hoof.  Dad gives me treats throughout the day and mom gives me belly rubs as I’m drifting off to sleep.  There are some times when mom and I will have a fight but at the end of the day she always returns to rub my belly.  My plan is working perfectly.  PLOL!

Psh, everyone caters to my every need…I’m the baby!

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That pigs are messy.  Yes we roll in mud, but it’s to keep cool as we eat grass.  Yes we like to rip up paper, but that’s to line our beds and to show the paper who’s boss.  Another one is that pigs smell…well I don’t know who doesn’t smell after a burp or fart, and for the record my burps and farts smell like roses.  And as a mini/teacup pig, people think I’ll always fit into a teacup or purse….I am proud to say I have a healthy 50 pound figure.  You can try to put me your purse (please do, so i don’t have to walk) but it will probably break..your back!

Just like my brother said that we will always remain small and that we don’t get attached too our families.  I was abandoned before my new mom and dad brought me home.  I was extremely attached to my first family and when they left me I was extremely depressed because I missed them.  Now I’m so much happier with my new family with lots of brothers to play with.



Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
