Dear Bacon – I overheard my dad telling mom last night that he was going camping this weekend. I love camping. There’s just something about the woods with all of those trees and marking my territory. I get excited just thinking about it – oops I almost wet myself. Anyway, I wanted to be ready when my dad got up this morning. Do you think I’m dressed appropriately for the woods? Signed Camper in Training
Dear Camper in Training – Oh my friend. I think you will have a blast in the woods with all of those trees. And look at you! I think you are more than appropriate. You look like you belong in the woods making trails. Yes you do. I hope you have a blast and one thing. Be careful of the sticks on the ground that wiggle.
Dear Bacon – This has been a huge day for me! First I met my new parents who seem pretty cool to tell you the truth. Then they took me to this awesome store where they had everything… and I do mean everything! They bought me food and treats and even fitted me for a cute little jacket in case it gets cold outside. I didn’t think it fit too good in my arms but my humans said that I would grow into it. Have you ever been to this store that has everything? Signed Barks and Cuddles
Dear Barks and Cuddles – Look at you!! Squeals with cuteness. Never fear, you will grow into your little jacket. And hey that jacket looks adorable on you. I just love seeing your little tail peeking out below the bottom – too cute! And this store you speak of, yes we have one close by the Hotel Thompson. Mom/dad have taken me in the past as well as Houdini. It has everything that any anipal can imagine. It’s such a fun place to explore for sure. Now you take care of yourself little guy and keep us posted on your growing rate.
Dear Bacon – It’s a hard job keeping one’s self in kibbles and treats. You see I’m a fashion pup model. I advertise a lot of times for doggy products. On this date, I was pushing shampoo products as well as supporting dogs who bathe. Can you believe that there are dogs out there that never take a bath? The horror in that! I just can’t imagine not taking care of one’s personal hygiene. So, I have to ask my friend. What kind of shampoo do you use? Signed Pup Model
Dear Pup Model – Now that is a career! Look at you my friend. You do have the legs to be an awesome model for sure. I use a shampoo made specifically for farm anipals. I know it doesn’t sound wonderful but it’s awesome on my piggy Mohawk and keeps my bristles less irritating to mom’s bare skin around her ankles. What we do for our humans, right? You keep on being the star you are sweet friend. Happy Bubble Bath!
Dear Bacon – I think I’ve made a grave mistake. You see my dad was taking some medicine and dropped a pill. I thought it was cool to play with the pill but accidentally swallowed it. I then saw this snake on the floor and have been holding it for hours watching it to make sure it doesn’t get loose in the hacienda. The things we do to protect our humans. Who knows how long this snake has been wiggling around here. It could have bit someone! Signed Snake Watcher
Dear Snake Watcher – Oh no my friend! You might want to not swallow any more pills in the future. Hopefully this pill will wear off really soon. I’m not sure what it was – hopefully nothing too much harmful than what it already is. I mean, catching live snakes in your house – that pill had to be something wicked. You might just want to go chill for a while. Perhaps take a nap and it’s okay to let that snake go. I bet you won’t even find that snake when you wake up. It’s okay – you’re safe. Not walk away from the snake and sleep my friend.
Dear Bacon – I don’t get it. It was raining outside so my dad put my raincoat on before I went outside. My raincoat is new and I love it because nothing on me gets wet – you can’t see my rain boots underneath it. Well me and dad are walking outside and people keep looking, pointing and laughing. I don’t get it. What’s so funny? Signed Sluggo
Dear Sluggo – First up, tell me that’s not your name. Really? Second up, I don’t think they are laughing or pointing at you. Nope. No way. You are way too cute my friend. I think they are looking, pointing and laughing at your human. Humans are weird like that. You just keep on walking and don’t mind them at all. Just be careful of salt on the streets okay.
❤ Don’t forget my friends to keep emailing me your letters/pictures coming for Dear Bacon submissions. Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU! ❤

I agree with B, Barks and Cuddles. The jacket will fit soon. And that store! Wow! We have one by us, too. But be careful, they also trim nails and give baths there!
Love and licks,

No way! Oh my gosh – the horror. XOXO – Bacon

Sluggo, he, he, he. Some folks will do anything for a laugh, even at their poor dog’s expense. He, he, he.

my old cat named “Mouse” once brought a Gardener Snake into the house, I was at work, dad was home…he called me from the neighbors, he freaked and ran out of the house and wouldn’t go back into the house until it was gone!….I had 4 hours of work left…..he waited, I came home….I had to search for the poor little snake and put it Down the Road…not in the yard! Then dad came into the house!! He caused such a panic, I think Mouse caught on that no snakes allowed in the house.. she never did it again!! lol…
