Spend the Night Party


 Hello sweet friends!

This past weekend, mom/dad had to go out of town.  You know what that means, right?  I got to go and spend the night with Nana – barks with puppy excitement.  And we *all* know what that means.

What happens at Nana’s, stays at Nana’s!

You do know what I’m talking about, right?  Nana loves me and I love nana.  And you know what else is at Nana’s… besides yummy food?  My cousins – Dingo and Tinkerbell.  Now Tinkerbell is small like me and older.  She doesn’t like to play much.  Pretty much – her basic fun thing to do during the day is sleep.  But she’s a girl and you know some girls have cooties like that.  Then there’s my playmate Dingo.  He’s younger than me and we have a ball together.  We play, we run, we eat and then we sleep.

Usually when I come home from Nana’s, I’m totally exhausted.  This time was no different.  I barely made it in the Hotel Thompson, said hey to Bacon and Hemi and passed out on the sofa for a nap.  It happens every time.  There’s just so much to do at Nana’s.

Do you get to spend the night with your friends?  Tell me all about it – Houdini ❤

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – Oh dude.  They say that sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince.  Well, I’ve been walking around everywhere and licking different kinds of frogs.  I mean, a kiss brings a prince.  I don’t need a prince.  I just need a man to take care of my beautiful self.  And hey, I figured a lick would suffice.  But this one tastes funny.  It doesn’t taste anything like chicken – I will tell you that.  What do you think of my situation?  Signed Halli

Dear Halli – Oh my friend.  I hate to be the one to tell you this but sometimes certain frogs cause hallucinations.  So if you lick one, you might *think* it’s your prince or soulmate when it’s really not.  I mean heck, personally I think a lot of humans do the same thing – lick the wrong humans and hallucinate of a wonderful happily ever after life when they know better.  My suggestion is maybe quit licking and looking for Mr. Right or Mr. Wrong.  You will find the perfect soulmate when you least expect it.  I know you will!

Dear Bacon – I work in my family’s veterinary office.  I think that I am in the right field.  How many anipals do you know that go to a vet’s office and just don’t understand why they are there or what is going on.  I’m here to offer my assistance and paw in explaining the situation.  You know like a lifeline into the unknown.  I think our profession is lost.  We need more anipals to work in these veterinary offices – they can definitely be a scary place.  Signed Vega, KA (kitty assistant)

Dear Vega – I think this is an absolutely wonderful idea!  You are so right.  We do need more anipals to work in these veterinary offices.  They are scary and I would love to have a helping paw when I visit.  Keep up your awesome work my friend!


Dear Bacon – Sometimes you just get tired and want to pick up and move on to your next destination.  There’s nothing wrong with that.  Sometimes you feel like  you need to travel to touch others and make a statement in your life.  I feel that need.  Cause you know, nobody knows what baggage we carry.  We gotta travel the world and the seven seas and touch as many people as we can.  What do you think?  Signed Hobo

Dear Hobo – I’m just sitting here smiling my sweet friend.  You are right.  Sometimes you feel the need to travel.  Other times you feel the need to come back home.  You know what they say – different strokes for different folks.  If it makes you happy, go for it my dear friend.  I am no one to judge.


.Dear Bacon – You may be too young to remember Mr. Owl so let me tell you about him.  Once upon a time in cartoon land, a little boy brought Mr. Owl a sucker and asked how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.  Well, Mr. Owl licked the Tootsie Pop three times and then bit into the Tootsie Pop thus telling the child three times.  Knowing this information, I thought I would really go for the gold and see how many licks it takes to get to the center of that Tootsie Pop.  I’ve been sitting out here in the sun all day licking.  As you can see, I still have Tootsie Pop and now my fur is smoking hot.  What is the moral of this story?  If you are going to lick to get to the center, do it in air conditioning.  It’s too hot out here.  Signed Hot Pockets

Dear Hot Pockets – You poor thing.  At least you don’t have to worry about tan lines, right?  🙂  That’s positive thinking for sure.  But you didn’t tell us.  How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?  The world will never know.


Dear Bacon – Don’t judge.  I went to jump out the window and got stuck.  Darn this belly.  I know you have a belly – I’m not judging by any means – but how do you manage these positions?  Please tell me.  Signed Garfield

Dear Garfield – Dude, you might want to think about cutting back just a little.  I’m not judging, trust me.  I mean heck, one time I got stuck behind the couch by my belly and all you could see were my hind legs running in the air behind me.  Shivers.  A day I will never forget.  So just like you, I cut back just a little for future escapades.  Be safe my friend.  You got this!


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

Make It Rain

Lord have mercy friends. Go find out about the stinky situation that Bashful got himself into over the weekend. XOXO – Bacon

Evil Squirrel's Nest


RAINY SKUNK: (Sobbing) Oh, boo hoo!!!  Woe is me!!!

CHIPMUNK SQUIRREL: What’s the matter, dear?  Did your deodorant quit on you again?

RAINY: Somebody stole my beloved rain gauge!  I always carry it around with me just in case it should ever rain inside of The Nest… which given all of the acorns that have fallen on the roof this year, could happen at any time!

CHIP: Now who in the heck would steal a rain gauge…. oh, who am I kidding?  Most of the shady characters around here would steal the Life Alert pendant off of their own mother.

RAINY: What am I going to do!?!?


CHIP: Maybe we should frisk everyone!  I think I’ll start with those cute little ponies that hang out down the shelf from me…

RAINY: There are so many worthless critters hanging around here… this is just TERRIBLE!

BASHFUL: Excuse me, ma’am…

Journey with Friends 

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!

Hello sweet friends. How was your week?  Any stumbling blocks?  Did you meet your goals?

I can officially say that I do believe my desire for sodas may be behind me. I haven’t had one for a couple of weeks now which blows my mind. I was so addicted 😦  I’ve made a commitment only to partake on special occasions when me and the hub unit might go out to dinner. At least this choice seems to be working now. Yay me!  

My food decisions last week were also good. AND I weighed this past weekend. I was down a couple more pounds!!  

So I’m learning day by day is the best way for me. So my friends – how was your week?

Long Distance Eating

Leave it to mom/dad to go out on their own unattended to find trouble.  It is the weekend, right?  They might as well have been wearing matching shirts that say, “Here comes Trouble 1 and Trouble 2.”  I’m just sayin’.

So mom/dad pulled themselves out of bed yesterday morning to go to our local Cracker Barrel restaurant – you know for a cozy breakfast.  This trip was anything but cozy mom found out.  They had gotten these new tables not too long ago.  Do you see anything wrong with the tables?  They look fine – all in perfect condition, no scratches or uneven legs.  But, look closer.  Mom said it felt like dad was sitting in another zip code away from her.  You see it now, right?

Mom told dad that it was hard for her to talk to him because she felt like she had to speak up volumes for him to hear.  Dad of course with his witless humor told mom to get some cups with string…. shakes my piggy head.  That’s my daddy always ready for a joke or three.

Have you ever been to a restaurant that the tables were this far out from one side to another?  And it was a four top – not a huge table for a big group.  But boy did mom say it felt like that for sure.

Newspaper Weather

That explains why the weather has a strange smell to it today?  Why didn’t I think of that.  It’s cloudy and windy outside or as they newspaper put it,

“Fartly cloudy and windy”

Doh!  Why didn’t I think of that huh?  How’s your weather today?  Snorts with piggy laughter.

Make A Wish

Oh friends – don’t say I didn’t warn you BUT you have to check out Bashful’s most recent escapades. Trust me. You won’t be let down – I’m still shaking my head! XOXO – Bacon

Evil Squirrel's Nest


BASHFUL: Oh, look!  A lamp!  And like everything else around The Nest, it’s both outdated and dirty!  Maybe I should just shine it up a bit here and I can take it to the pawn shop to hock for stripper money….

Bashful rubs the lamp and you’ll never guess what happened next…..


GEORGE: Greetings, Master!

BASHFUL: Wow!  Who are you?

GEORGE: I am George the Genie!  I was trapped inside of that lamp for over a million years and you have finally freed me!

BASHFUL: Hmmmm, is the lamp more valuable with a genie inside?  Maybe I should stuff you back in there…

GEORGE: I am forever indebted to you for releasing me from my prison, and have the power to grant any three wishes your heart desires!

BASHFUL: What?  Three wishes?  Me!?!?  Oh boy!!!  Gee, what do I want?  World peace?  An end to poverty?  Justin Bieber to take…
