About Bacon and Friends
Hi – my name is Bacon. 🙂 I’m a miniature pot bellied pig. My mom/dad adopted me when I was a mere three weeks old and I’m just a tad bit spoiled. This blog is about ‘my misadventures’ in life here at the Hotel Thompson with my mom/dad and other friends listed below. We try our best to keep the humans on their toes. Someone has to and trust me – it’s a hard job with my mom and dad. They are always getting into trouble! My main goal on my blog is to bring a smile to your face. If I did that, I did my job well.
Every Tuesday, I post a Dear Bacon issue. It’s kind of like the Dear Abby issues for humans. But mine is where my anipals like you send me private questions and pictures to my personal email. I in turn read each and every letter. I then post these on my Dear Bacon issues with answers straight from my heart. If you have a question in life that is pondering you, send your email to me at Baconthompson@gmail.com with Dear Bacon in the subject line. I love my mail!
I live at the Hotel Thompson with my adopted brother – a purr sibling if you will. My purr brothers name is Hemingway – Hemi for short. He thinks he rules the Hotel Thompson. His ancestors are the hemingway cats from Key West. I tell you that because he is a polydactyl cat. That means he has more than the usual toes on his paws. And trust me, he knows how to use those extra toes – he’s contact slapping my rear end. It hurts! From time to time when I’m not looking, he hacks my blog and writes their own stuff. Darn that purr thing!
.This is Houdini – he is a Yorkshire Terrier that came to live at the Hotel Thompson on 08/30/2014. In this picture when mom and dad adopted him, he is 12 weeks young and a spit fire! He does his own posts on Fridays called Paw Time with Houdini. He writes about his doggy adventures living at the Hotel Thompson with a pig (moi), a purr thing and a handful of treasured and beloved pet rocks. Houdini is grown now at a whopping 9.5 pounds. Trust me friends, he has the body of a minnow and the heart of Moby Dick.
I also have a friend named Journalist Rocky the Squirrel – who “keeps his paws on the nuts of the world”. He writes a blog at times to inform us of interesting and informational tidbits about important dates. Can you believe that his ‘real’ name is Rockford Pygmy Sciuridae – no wonder he goes by Rocky the Squirrel! LOL – Journalist Rocky the Squirrel lives in my magical backyard here at the Hotel Thompson. He’s always knocking on our back door begging for nuts for him and his family. But, we don’t mind. They are pretty cool and real entertaining!
On Mondays, I let mom post on my blog with “Journey with Friends”. Journey with Friends is a blog posting to support all of us in our day to day trials to a healthier body. It’s great for encouragement. And starting January 1, 2017, mom has started a short post everyday on how she is doing with her weight loss. Hope to see you there!
I also have a pet rock named Bashful. He knows a lot of tricks like stay, sit, be quiet and dad taught him how to play dead. Bashful is a happening pebble. He is definitely the “international rolling stone“. He goes to all kinds of different places and stays with host families having adventures. His first trip was to France and was amazing! As Bashful has traveled, he has picked up a few friends of his own. They now live with us as well at the Hotel Thompson. Check back often because the rock friends are growing! I hope you enjoy our blog! Hogs and snout kisses – Bacon

05/24/2012 at 11:24 am
Oh that’s awesome! I just discovered your blog by accident, but seeing as I have 4 mini-piggets at home similarly bent on world domination, we’ll be following your every snort and hoofprint!

01/15/2013 at 10:49 am
Oh My Dawg!!!!! Thanks for stopping by The Scottie Chronicles. I’m glad you did, because, otherwise, We’d miss your great blog! My peep had two piggys when She was younger. Arnold and Snorky. They were B-I-G pigs and came inside to warm up by the fire in the winter time. Oh boy, can’t wait to see what you get into!
01/15/2013 at 10:56 am
Aaaww thanks Stuart. I stay strictly inside. I prefer it that way. I’m not much into ‘nature’ – shivers. My mom has tried though. Can’t wait to hear more about you as well! XOXO Bacon
02/04/2013 at 5:20 pm
Shhhhhhhhhhhh Bacon – don`t let Goosey hear you have your own business card or he`ll want one too!
02/04/2013 at 6:28 pm
Smile – he can have some too. <> they really do come in handy when people ask mom and dad what’s going on with the me.
02/11/2013 at 12:59 pm
Good to meet you Bacon! I look forward to learning more about you, your siblings and Hotel Thompson.

02/18/2013 at 5:49 am
Purr things. Lol. I just love that. Bacon, you are the cutest pig in the world. Are you a vegitarian?
02/18/2013 at 7:25 am
No. I eat meat. Not all the times. When I do, it’s that other while meat called chicken. Mostly though, fruits and veggies.
03/05/2013 at 3:45 pm
Everything about you and this blog is just tooo adorable, Bacon! In fact, I have been thinkspired to urge my 2 month old pup-pup Mirmo to run a blog himself. H says he’ll think about it. haha! 😀
03/05/2013 at 4:16 pm
Yay!! Mirmo needs his own blog. It’s his outlet of letting his inner feelings out. I would love to meet him. XOXO – Bacon
03/18/2013 at 1:26 pm

Thanks to you! You are awesome and creative! Nice to meet! 🙂

03/18/2013 at 5:42 pm
Oh Bacon… You are not only delicious but adorable as well. The next time I consume a plate of you I will shed a tear.
03/18/2013 at 6:23 pm
Uh oh … Slowly creeping out of your blog. PLOL (pig laughing out loud)
03/18/2013 at 10:21 pm
*scampers back to her own blog and peers over the edge*
in the distance there is the delicate kronsh of bacon being consumed…
03/18/2013 at 10:22 pm
Mommy just explained to me that I’m not “that kind of pig”. Sigh – that was a close call my new friend.
03/18/2013 at 10:39 pm
*moves closer to you*
yes that WAS a close call.
*has piglet treats in her pocket*
03/18/2013 at 11:52 pm
Ooohhh piggy treats. I’m yours.
03/19/2013 at 2:20 pm
*scratches behind your ears*
03/19/2013 at 2:21 pm
aaww – that’s the spot. You’re the best – snout kisses – Bacon
03/21/2013 at 5:42 am

03/21/2013 at 7:12 am
🙂 I put him on there yesterday. I’m still working on him getting over his camera shyness. I want to get a good picture of him!
04/11/2013 at 12:31 am

Hey there Bacon! You are soooo cute, and your blog is awesome! Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on ‘It’s Not Polite to Eat Your Friends.’ It must be hard for you that so many people eat pigs, but I assure you that I’m working hard to change that. Please stop by again. Hugs, Celeste:)

Hey Bacon! I gave a shout out to you on this post. http://honkifyourevegan.com/
05/19/2013 at 2:53 pm
Aaww thanks my friend. You are so sweet!! XOXO – Bacon
05/23/2013 at 6:43 pm
I have always wanted a pot bellied pig like you Bacon!!! Not sure how easy your kind are to adopt though? Hm, I’ll have to look into it. Love your blog, I just found you through Celeste’s super sweet nominations!! You definitely deserved yours. Anyway, can’t wait to see more of your posts! xx
05/23/2013 at 6:45 pm
Thanks my new friend. I’m a miniature pot bellied piggy. I’m 20 months old now. I’m also slightly spoiled as you will see from some of my posts. 🐷 XOXO – Bacon
05/24/2013 at 2:00 am
Ah, yes good clarification! I have seen photos of full-sized pot bellied pigs and I don’t think they would fit in my tiny apartment! Haha.
06/05/2013 at 5:10 pm
I stopped by earlier and did not have much time to really take a look. What a cute little pig your are! I look forward to hearing about your adventures…along with your other little friends! 🙂
06/05/2013 at 5:11 pm
Aaww. Thanks so much my new friend and welcome. XOXO – Bacon
06/07/2013 at 4:23 am
Hi Bacon, I think you are lovely and because I can’t have a real pig, I am going to make one just like you in amigurumi. I have one question. What color are your eyes? They look black in your photos but I am not sure. X
06/07/2013 at 6:49 am
They are brown. You’re the bestest friend!! I can’t wait to see it. XOXO – Bacon
06/07/2013 at 6:55 am
thnxs. I will alert you when I post it. I am also posting the pattern so other people can have their very own amigurumi pet piggie. (if you are OK with that?)
06/07/2013 at 7:33 am
Fabulous! I think that’s so cool. I can’t thank you enough for thinking of this little piggie. It’s awesome. Can’t wait to see it. XOXO – Bacon
06/24/2013 at 2:53 pm
I cannot believe how small you are, and what were you doing away from your mother at only three weeks old!? Charlotte is appalled and wonders if you want to over for a play date with her Wild Bunch! c
06/24/2013 at 3:25 pm
of course, I would absolutely LOVE to have a play date with Charlotte. Mommy got me when I was three weeks old because I was a runt. It wasn’t my biological mothers fault. There was just too many of us. Mommy adopted me, hand fed me, and raised me like one of her own. I’ve been happy ever since! XOXO – Bacon
06/24/2013 at 3:08 pm
I just spoke to charlotte and she said you must be one lucky piggie to have such a good family then she asked me if she could have a slice of pound cake for her pudding. c
06/24/2013 at 3:27 pm
aaww – thanks. I consider myself lucky as well. I mean heck, what other piggy you know lives in the house and has their own room with all of the luxuries like a toddler bed, television, cable and Netflix? 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
06/24/2013 at 3:33 pm
Your Mom is fantastic for raising you by herself, she saved your dear wee piggy life.. Charlotte wants Netflix but I said the babies were too young to be up that late.. so she said she is coming to live with you as soon as she can find a babysitter… c
06/24/2013 at 3:37 pm
Snorts – I bless every day for having mommy in my life… and daddy 🙂
I go to bed at a pretty reasonable time but Bashful on the other hand – he has a curfew – snorts.
Charlotte can come visit any time she wants to! XOXO – Bacon
07/18/2013 at 2:19 pm
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. 😀 Yours makes me smile.
07/18/2013 at 2:23 pm
Thank you so much. That’s what I try to do with everyone that visits my blog – make them smile and perhaps chuckle a couple of times over my hi-jinks here at the Hotel Thompson 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
07/26/2013 at 2:24 am
Oh Bacon you are just devine…..I loveeee piggies and always wanted one..but I don’t know enough about proper care so I would never take on a wonderful piggie friend without having some good knowledge! we have 11 acres and I am sure it would be piggie paradise! I look forward to following your adventures with the rest of your family too ! thankyou for popping in to our bloggie and the animals in our house have their own bloggie too(naturally!) so pop in and we can all have some fun!
http://ourpawpad.wordpress.com look forward to seeing you Bacon 🙂 hugs Fozziemum xx
07/26/2013 at 3:29 am
I’m so glad we found each other my new friend! Thank you so much for your kind comment. I see us being great buds in taking over the world! PLOL (pig laughing our loud). XOXO – Bacon
07/26/2013 at 3:36 am
Hehehe we also have three sheepies so they bol (baa out loud) always in little letters hehehhe..yes the world needs the anipals to take over…my babies make sure I do their posts just right hehehe
Have a great day Bacon 😉 xxxxxx Fozziemum and gang
07/26/2013 at 3:39 am
Aaww this is great. I’ve never met sheepies before. This is so cool! Do you think they will like my pet rock Bashful the rolling stone? XOXO – Bacon
07/26/2013 at 3:47 am
Bacon I think they may..you see we live on a rock reef!!..we have stones everywhere as we live in an old gold mining town..Bashful may find a shiny friend in our paddocks…pet rocks are great..we have a rock or two in the house as well..but not with personality like Bashful 😉 perhaps we can find him a friend here?
xxxxx hugs Fozziemum
07/26/2013 at 3:51 am
Oohh hubba hubba. I think he would love that. A rock reef sounds so cool! He could play forever. And the little booger loves playing hide and seek. He once hid in the fish tank. Took me forever to find him. He’s good! We are going to have so much fun together Fozziemum! XOXO – Bacon
07/26/2013 at 3:57 am
Bacon we can always have him hide in one of the Kangaroos pouches! no onewill ever know and he would travel so fast and so far…like magic!
We are going to have loads of fun Bacon 🙂
Big hugs Fozziemum xxx
07/26/2013 at 6:10 am
Snorts. Yes we are my friend! The traveling rock in a kangaroo pouch. Well, that definitely is a place he has never been. XOXO – Ba on
07/26/2013 at 6:12 am
Well Bacon we have four ‘mobs’ of about 17 roos in each at the moment ..Bashful could play great hiding tricks!! Fozziemum xxx
07/26/2013 at 6:18 am
That’s a lot. I’m so excited. I’ve net met jumpy things before either. I’m just breaking down all kinds of hurdles lately – yay’. XOXO – Bacon
07/26/2013 at 6:23 am
I see… and haven’t yet commented..had to go out for awhile….that you are venturing into the world of nature! it can be scary but little piggie steps and you will love it!!! xxxxFozziemum

08/04/2013 at 9:13 pm
Thanks for finding our blog and liking it. We have never met a piggie person before so we’re very happy to add you to our collection of friends. We were also both adopted when we were little meows so we have that in common with you. We also really enjoyed reading about your friend Stevie. Isn’t it great having friends?
08/04/2013 at 9:21 pm
Yes it is!! We piggies are like your purr things. We like a lot of loving and holding. We are always there to listen. I hope you enjoy my blog! Can’t wait to read more about y’all. XOXO – Bacon
08/06/2013 at 4:20 am
Aww you’re cute, Bacon and furriends. Leaving some ‘good to know you’ Pawkisses for all of you 🙂
08/06/2013 at 7:02 am
Aaww. Thanks my friend!! XOXO – Bacon
08/08/2013 at 6:53 pm
Hey Bacon! I’ve got a question for you. My husband and I are considering bringing a pig into our family. Do you need a lot of space and care? And do you get along with dogs? Thank you so much! Oh, and I always enjoy your blog. Celeste 🙂
08/08/2013 at 6:59 pm
Thank you my friend. I really don’t need a lot of space. I do have my own room in the house. It has my toddler bed, television and wee wee pad. I’m house trained 🙂
I’m around dogs when I go to nana’s house. They are small and we are fine 🙂
There are several types of pigs you can get. Micro and me – a miniature pot belly. I’m like a little child. I like to have a lot of attention. Some would say I was an attention hog – snorts.
As far as care, I’m pretty easy. I eat anything and love to snuggle. The only down side is you need to find a great pig sitter for me when you go on vacation. You can’t board pigs at the kennel. Other than that, we are great to have. I’ll answer any more questions you have. Love you my friend. XOXO – Bacon
08/08/2013 at 8:02 pm
Thank you Bacon! Just two more questions. How much do you weigh and any suggestions of where we can find a pig to adopt? Celeste 🙂
08/08/2013 at 8:05 pm
I’m grown and I weigh about 45 pounds. I’m about the size of a small barky thing. I’ll be two years old in September 🙂
Do a google for your area for miniature or micro pigs for sale. Just be sure to buy from a reputable dealer. You dot want to buy a miniature and end up with a 100 pound plus baby. 🙂
08/08/2013 at 8:09 pm
Wonderful – thanks!!
08/08/2013 at 8:50 pm
Anytime my friend. XOXO – Bacon
08/09/2013 at 6:49 am

Hi Bacon! My name is Cocoa… I’m a piggie too! But, um, I don’t think we’re the same… You sure seem like one spoiled pig and I would love to be pig-friends with you and Bashful! Because of my hooman Melon we’re not always great at keeping up, but we’ll do our best! Hope to see you around!
08/17/2013 at 8:49 am

Hey Bacon! I’m having a little fun on my blog and playing a game. I tagged you on my post to play the game with me. It’s a quick, simple game. If you play, you might win a new car!! Haha – that’s a LIE! Still, I hope you play! Here’s the link: http://honkifyourevegan.com/2013/09/21/tell-me-a-lie/

01/24/2014 at 1:53 am
Hi, Bacon! I see your mom recently clicked “follow” on my blog again, but I unfortunately moved it to a self hosted site just this week, and would be so grateful if you’d make her follow http://www.myhartjie.co.za instead (she can just post the URL under “Edit Blogs I Follow” in the Reader), as the wordpress site will no longer be updated 🙂 Have a great weekend with your furry friends!
02/10/2014 at 2:08 pm
Bacon, I am so glad you came by my blog!! Thank you for the follow, I’m thankful you could make the time – you are so very busy! What a great menagerie, humanagerie and rockery you have about you, I just love it all! I am going to enjoy reading your posts, I can tell.
02/10/2014 at 2:17 pm
aaww thank you my dear sweet friend. My goal is to bring happiness and laughter. If I do that, my job is complete for the day. Can’t wait to read more about your blog as well. 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
02/14/2014 at 1:52 pm
I’ve nominated you for the Super Sweet Award! You are a super sweet piggy so I didn’t have to think hard about who I was going to give it to 🙂
I understand that not everyone accepts awards, but I wished to highlight your blog for my readers and this is my way of saying you’re such a cutie. Here is the nomination page http://iarxiv.com/2014/02/14/awards-for-fellow-bloggers/
If you do choose to accept the award, technically you should write a post, stick the little logo pic of cupcakes on your blog, and pass the award on to others who you think are worth it. I chose to give it to only one person (read: porcine), you, because I believe that nominating 15 blogs simply dilutes the power of the award to highlight important/interesting blogs. Oh and you should also answer 5 super sweet questions
1. Cookies or Cake?
2. Chocolate or Vanilla?
3. Favorite Sweet Treat?
4. When do you crave sweet things the most?
5. Sweet Nick Name?
But given that you’re a porcine, perhaps you can substitute some of these questions for more appropriate ones… like 1. Apples or Corn? etc. You get my drift 🙂
Piggy and Puggy who love apples AND corn 🙂
02/14/2014 at 4:54 pm
OMP (oh my piggy). Thank you so much for nominating me with this award. I love awards!! Awesome sauce. I will definitely try to take care of this very soon. Thanks my friend. XOXO – Bacon
02/19/2014 at 3:31 pm
Snort snort snort. Glad you love awards. Enjoy.
Greetings from your piggie friends,
Piggy and Puggy

Thank you my new friend. It was so good meeting you today as well. See you around. XOXO – Bacon

Hey Bacon! thank you for yesterday’s laugh and following my blog 😀
03/13/2014 at 4:17 pm
You are so welcome and thank you for the follow 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
03/13/2014 at 4:23 pm
My pleasure Bacon! xo lol
03/25/2014 at 9:26 am
Your blog quacks me up Bacon!
03/25/2014 at 9:32 am
aaww – thank you my new friend! I aim to please and make everyone laugh. I’m just a little piggy surviving here at the Hotel Thompson 🙂 Snort-Oink. XOXO – Bacon
03/25/2014 at 9:35 am
Did you know I don’t like or eat bacon….LOL but you’re awesome so I’ll make this one exception. Oink!
03/25/2014 at 9:39 am
aaww thank you my friend. Look at my picture? I’m just a little ole runt piglet out for a good time. I’ll make you laugh. I’ll wiggle my tail. I’ll oink at you and tell you funny jokes. I’ll share about my life here at the Hotel Thompson with my humans and two purr things. XOXO – Bacon
03/25/2014 at 9:40 am
You’ve kept me chuckling thus far. I’m guessing Hotel Thompson is a fun place to hang out? I could use a quiet spot to do some writing. Just no bacon on the menu ok…LOL xoxo
03/25/2014 at 9:44 am
You would be safe here. Mom and dad do NOT eat pork products here – especially in front of me. Shivers – that would be what they call child abuse – snorts. Especially since they treat me like their kid. You’ll see from the blog. I’m just a typical little oinker with his own bedroom, television and DVD player. Did I mention toddler bed? Doesn’t every pig get this kind of treatment? XOXO – Bacon
03/25/2014 at 9:49 am
You sound rather spoiled to me…LOL yay for mom and dad not eating pork! I like them already. You did not mention the toddler bed, and what’s up with the TV and DVD player? Hell, I don’t even have that….haha! Can I say hell -:)
03/25/2014 at 9:54 am
Snorts – uh-oh someone needs to put a quarter in the swear jar – double snorts. That’s what they make me do here at the Hotel Thompson. I’m just slightly pampered. I have my own bedroom fully equipped. I like to watch television while I’m falling to sleep in my toddler bed. It’s what I do best – 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
03/25/2014 at 10:14 am
Maybe I need to put in a few quarters, just incase I slip in the near future…LOL
I guess there’s nothing wrong to falling asleep to the boob tube. I read -:)
03/25/2014 at 10:16 am
See, it’s what we do. Usually mom reads me a book and then sets the timer on my television. It’s a nightly ritual. XOXO – Bacon
03/25/2014 at 10:30 am
Aw, that’s too sweet -:)

04/01/2014 at 12:28 pm
Hey Bacon’s Mum and Dad,
I think you asked me once if there’s any piggy-themed prints that you could get for Bacon’s living area (some time ago, it’s been a while)… and I promised there would be. Finally, I’ve got three super cute piggy prints you can choose from 🙂 Just a suggestion, no pressure obviously. I’d be grateful if you could spread the word to all piggy/animal loving people 🙂
Many snorts to you and Bacon
from us and Piggy & Puggy
04/01/2014 at 12:51 pm
OMP (oh my pig!) These are so cool. I will so show these to mom and dad tonight. I love them all! Thanks. XOXO – Bacon
04/08/2014 at 2:14 pm
Oh goodie, well, let me know what you think of them. Were made partially with you in mind 😛
04/08/2014 at 2:51 pm
oh snap – that is so cool!! I have it marked under my favorites on my laptop. I gotta show these to mom tonight. XOXO – Bacon

Bacon, I’ve been meaning to ask–do you enjoy belly rubs? I spent some time taking care of pot bellied pigs at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, and I learned that some pigs like belly rubs just as much as dogs do! Working with the pigs was the highlight of my time there 🙂
05/15/2014 at 4:13 pm
Hello my friend!! I absolutely LOVE pot belly rubs. LOVE IT! In fact, mom can touch me a certain way and I will tip over for a belly rub. She calls it pig tipping. I’m so glad you got to work with us piggies – aren’t we just the greatest? XOXO – Bacon

08/02/2016 at 3:16 pm
Yeah, I don’t think you’ll like me that much, I am very fond of pigs but pork is my absolute favourite sorry 😀
08/02/2016 at 4:09 pm
Hey my friend. That is no problems. Mom tells me all of the time that I am not “that” kind of pig. So we are all good. XOXO – Bacon

Hi Bacon – and everybody else at the Hotel. I’m Tink, and Mom just let me post my first article on ADDandSoMuchMore dot com, “Blogging Tips from a Shih Tzu.” I found you on another post that wasn’t written by a two-leg. I added a link to this page in my Related Content section and am looking forward to getting to know you better.
If you write anything “related” to anything I write in the future, please drop by and leave a link in the comments section so I can add it into my “Related” section (Mom tells me that many of the two-legs don’t read the comments, so they may have passed that bad habit on to their fur and feather kids.)
You can find the most recent 20 articles on the site by scrolling down on the skinny right column – mine is sort of near the top still. (The landing page is just a bunch of long, boring stuff about Mom.)
Pleased to meetch’
10/24/2016 at 2:42 pm
Awesome. Off to visit. Thanks my new friend. XOXO – Bacon

10/24/2016 at 2:55 pm
My new friend Ray let me know that some 2-legs my Mom calls “WordPress Gremlins” are messing with our site – with stupid ads that are obliterating functionality, even tho’ she spends money to keep ads off our site. Marketing spam, of all the crazy things (as if 4-legs could actually buy much of anything – it’s not as if we have purses and wallets).
So today Mom has to spend her time trying to fix that situation before she will turn the computer over to me. I just wanted to say YEA! while she’s off ‘nuking her coffee.
10/24/2016 at 3:34 pm
Snorts my new friend! I know that feeling. That’s why I finally got my own laptop – mom was spending too much time and not letting me in for *my* blog. Crazy huh? But at least I’m up to 25 hpm (hooves per minute) now. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

Its gonna be fun tagging along with you on this journey through life and seeing it through your eyes and words. Woof, woof or is that oink oink. By the way my favorite movie was “Babe”. Is this one of your many talents?
