Dear Bacon – Hey dude! With all of the soccer craze going on right now, I thought I would hop along and be a professional athlete as well. I love soccer. There is nothing more relaxing than kicking the ball around. I think I’m just as good as David Beckham or Pelé or even Cristiano Ronaldo. What do you think? Do you think they would count my front feet as hands? Do you ever play ball? Signed A Beautiful Mind
Dear A Beautiful Mind – Awesome. That’s what I say. I think it’s awesome that you love to play soccer as much as you do. I can see you in the Olympics and at the big game. And yes I can see you next to the greats that you mentioned. I myself have snouted a ball around the backyard here from time to time. I think it’s a great way to relief some stress. I don’t care what any other peep thinks, you do what you love my friend. Go score BIG TIME!
Dear Bacon – Can you guess who my hero is? Go ahead guess. I bet you can’t figure it out? I know you can’t! I’ve gotta go now and find my brother Luigi and that gorgeous Princess Peach. Signed Mario
Dear Mario – Snorts! Good one my friend. You are awesome. You look just like that guy. No doubts in my book at all. And yes we guessed right off who you were. You see my mom loves Mario and Luigi and all your friends. She says she grew up with them and gave them a run for their money playing arcades.
I think you need to work your look for as long as you can and make it work for you. Perhaps you can go on a nationwide tour and promote Mario and Friends. Wouldn’t that be fun? If you come to my neck of the woods, I would love to see you in person. Take care and safe travels!
Dear Bacon – I told everyone I would be back and here I am. I’m back and ready to take over the world. This time I’m coming back as a pooch that is deadly… that has secret weapons of destruction. Don’t get in my way. Signed Poochnator
Dear Poochnator – WOW! Does your humans know about this? And I have to ask. Do you know my friend Easy? Are you secretly Easy in disguise? A pig has to know these answers my friend. And hey, does your mother know about your late curfew while you are out saving the world? And my mom says to tell you to remember to wear clean underwear… you know just in case something happens.
Dear Bacon – I’ll do anything for a carrot. I’ve heard you are the same. What would you do for a carrot? Signed Tony “The Pig” Hawk
Dear Tony “The Pig” Hawk – You go my friend. You ride like there is no tomorrow. Hit those decks, do those tails, ride those carves and hit some air. I can see you doing all of these tricks and getting all of the carrots you could wish for. And have I done anything for a carrot? You betcha. I’ve given Mouse Girl here back scratches and washed Hemi’s feet.What? That’s as adventurous as this pig gets!
Dear Bacon – Oh my pussy cats. There I was in the house walking around like I normally do. I went into the bathroom and there was a beautiful bubble bath in the tub. I looked around and no one was there. So I decided to take a little dip thinking that humans left it for me, right? I’m laying back enjoying the suds and then have mercy – the human master walked in naked. What has now been seen can not be unseen. I’ll even be honest with you. I’m not sure which one of us screamed the loudest. Signed Rub-a-Tub-Puss-in-a-Tub
Dear Rub-a-Tub-Puss-in-a-Tub – WOW! Now first up. That is a lovely ‘scared’ picture of you in the suds. It does look like you were enjoying yourself. Second up, I gotta ask. Did you give up your luxurious bubble bath and give it to the human or did you share? Snorts – I know I wouldn’t have gotten out!
FRIENDS – Please remember that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please email me your pictures and letters 🙂
Dear Bacon – I’m just being friendly. That’s it. Really I am. He looked so lonely in the cage. I just thought I would pop in to say hey and you know give him a reassuring pat of assurance from me. That’s it. Really. Signed Felix the Friendly Kitty
Dear Felix the Friendly Kitty – Sure buddy. Whatever you say. Just remember though that the proof is now in pictures. That means no mistakes in your friendly ‘pats of assurance’. Just sayin’ my friend.
Dear Bacon – I’ve heard you come from a long line of football players. We know not players per say but footballs themselves – Barks! Well, we gotta game going in our hood all of the time. Next time you are in the area, join us. And don’t worry, we won’t deflate the ball at all. Signed Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady
Dear Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady – What guys you are. Thanks for the invite and I will definitely keep that in mind. Can’t wait for the football season to start this year!.
Dear Bacon – There was this pot that mom had on the porch. She grows beautiful things in it. So I was thinking that I’m a puppy and maybe for me to grow into something beautiful, I would pot myself. I jumped in and added water. Is it working yet? Signed Puppy Flower
Dear Puppy Flower – I don’t really think that is how it happens my friend. But on the other hoof, you look really cute in that bucket. And hey you got a bath out of it too. I say just be you. You are going to grow up soon enough. And remember one final thought buddy. You are already beautiful.
Dear Bacon – Sometimes no matter how small you are, one needs to draw the line. The humans put me in a wine glass. What.were.they.thinking? A wine glass. I’m not a wine glass kind of pup. I think I’m more of an oversized coffee cup kind of pooch. What do you think? Signed Small Barks
Dear Small Barks – I have to say my friend, either way I think you are cute in either a wine glass or a coffee cup. I think you should play it for everything it’s worth. Make the humans pay in so many different ways – extra treats, extra puppy chow. .
Dear Bacon – I have to say a puppy power nap is sometimes the best thing you can do. I highly recommend them any time during the day or night. Take notes from me pal. Don’t forget your blankie and pillow. Signed Sleepy Town
Dear Sleepy Town – WOW! You are the posted child for a puppy power nap my friend. I love it and trust me. I am so taking notes!
REMEMBER my friends – Dear Bacon issues can’t happen without YOU. Please remember to email me your picture and letters.
Oh dear piggy heavens. I was on mom’s Facebook page last night and came across the new Flatua Backfire. What? You haven’t heard about this new car? Are you going to be impressed. This new Flatua Backfire will look familiar. It looks just like mom’s Smart car but with a twist – snorts – and it is some kind of twist – trust me on that my friends. And hey here at the Hotel Thompson, I think daddy is ready for this.
Just to keep everyone updated on my life – I have been attending piggy therapy. I’ve cried a lot. I’ve laughed a lot. I’ve learned a lot. Therapy is not just for the humans.
I’ve talked a lot about some issues… you know me and nature. I’ve come to realize that it goes deep to when I was a runt baby. I’ve never experienced the ‘great outdoors’ and that scares me. It’s a huge place out there, right. Lot’s of crawly things, nature and grass. Shivers – it’s frightening for this little pig. But, I’m working through these issues. I know you will be glad to hear that. Maybe one day… in the near future… I will attempt to place my little pig hooves in the green grass outside and commence with nature. Hold on for a minute – let me take a piggy xanax to relax.
It’s a work in progress. I’ve made some baby steps. I can actually look outside into nature with the door being open. I can feel the air and wind surrounding my little piggy body and I don’t flip out. I can hear the frogs, the crickets and birds chirping and I’m good. I watch the rabbits and squirrels with nothing in between us but air and I’m fine. Of course, all of this is from the safety of my the threshold of the back door. Again, it’s a work in progress. You don’t know how much convincing mommy had to do just to get me to the opened door 🙂 I’ll keep you posted my friends
