Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 2

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October 1, 2018 – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement. This year, we are doing things a little different.  We are writing a continuous story for 31 days of Bacon’s Spooktoberfest.  So if you miss a day, you can catch up.  Have a fun and scary month sweet friends.

And don’t worry, you can always hold my hoof. 


Barks!  Us all alone in the house.  I’m so excited my tail won’t stop wagging.  After the ‘family meeting’, we all ran to Bacon’s room for our own little anipal meeting.  We can’t let the humans know how excited we are.  We will rock this house, stay up as long as we want, eat what we want and watch anything we want on television.  OMD – it will be a blast.  I call Animal Planet.

Meow – I just want to be left alone on the big bed.  I may need help setting my number on the Select Comfort to a happy 60 – that number is purfect for my spine.  Houdini – there is enough televisions in this house that we all can watch what we want.  I gotta see me some Jackson Galaxy.  That man thinks he is the cat whisperer.  He is so wrong.  Man will never rules us cats – ever.  Meows.

Oinks – We gotta set a plan in motion guys.  When nana visits, we gotta make sure she leaves all of our goodies out and makes popcorn.  I call the television in the living room.  I just love stretching out on the chaise.  That thing was made for my curvy body.  And the ottoman next to it holds my laptop.  OMP – I can spend hours on the computer and there’s no one to tell me to get off.  I may have died and gone to heaven.  But guys, we can’t be too happy in front of mom/dad.  You know we gotta make sure they think we will be miserable and miss them – as if – snorts with piggy laughter.  And don’t worry, I have dad’s credit card number.  We can order pizza and have it delivered.  That kid on Home Alone will have nothing on us!

Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 1

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October 1, 2018 – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement. This year, we are doing things a little different.  We are writing a continuous story for 31 days of Bacon’s Spooktoberfest.  So if you miss a day, you can catch up.  Have a fun and scary month sweet friends.

And don’t worry, you can always hold my hoof. 


There we all were – all of us anipals – me, Houdini and Hemi.  It was time for the ‘family meeting’ here at the Hotel Thompson.  Us anipals translated ‘family meeting’ into who left the fur ball on the pillow Hemi or who has been eating the cat food Houdini to the dreaded Bacon you need to slow down from flying through the house kind of meetings.  These meetings were always about what we can do to improve the dynamics here at the Hotel Thompson.  Rolls piggy eyes.  I’m sure you can relate – boring – yawns.

We were settled in the living room when mom/dad walked in demanding our attention.  But that’s when it turned weird.  Mom brought popcorn to the meeting.  All of us anipals love popcorn.  Hey, something is not right.  We all gathered our clusters of popcorn, started snacking and listening to mom/dad.  Dad was talking.  Now that’s weird.  Usually it’s mom during the ‘family meetings’.

“Kids, we have some news that you might be a little upset at first but before you get upset, think of this time as an adventure”, dad then stopped and looked at mom before continuing.  “Me and mom are going out for a couple of days this coming weekend.  We are going to leave on Friday and come back Sunday.  We think you are old enough not to be housed out to everyone.  This time, nana will come and check on you to feed you but we are going to let you stay here in your home…. by yourselves.”

Us anipals just looked at each other in shock.  What do you mean, leave us alone?  Like all alone – no parental guardianship?  PAWTY!!  I mean, that’s a shame.  I’m sure we will get along somehow.  Secretly us anipals were high fiving each other behind our backs.   Gotta make it look good though – sad looks on all of our faces and of course the needy hugs and lap time for sure.

Dear Bacon

img_5513

Dear Bacon  – So I need advice. My mommy and daddy work a lot and I am at home alone. It gets boring sometimes and lonely i just want to be with mommy. What should I do while mommy is at work.  This is my mommy in the picture – isn’t she beautiful?  Signed Icess

 Dear Icess – AAWW she is beautiful just like you my sweet friend!  You know just a couple of thoughts your way.  One is that your mom can leave her sleep top for you to snuggle on throughout the day.  That way you can ‘smell’ mom and feel comforted.  Second is television.  I love my television.  I keep it on all of the time watching the Animal Planet.  That would give you a lot of company as well.  And you can redecorate the living room.  I’ve seen Houdini here do that to the pillows on our couch.  Just don’t destroy them like Houdini has done – that’s another post for another time – snorts.  I hope this helps my sweet friend.  Hogs and snout kisses.


  Dear Bacon – Sometimes one just needs to stretch out with the sun rays on their body and take a siesta.  It doesn’t matter where you are – when it hits – IT HITS.  Signed Felix.

Dear Felix – You are so very right my friend.  When it hits, it does hit.  I’ve been there as well as other anipals here on the blog.  Another great place to fall asleep is on your human.  Do you know they will not move until you wake up?  Now to me, that’s deep love!


  Dear Bacon – Sometimes the only place you can find quiet in the entire home is the bathroom.  Isn’t that where the humans go for their quiet time?  I know they can be in there for what seems like hours.  Sometimes I hear mom asking my dad is he taking up residency in there.  So with that in mind, I thought I would try it out for a nap.  You know what?  It was awesome!  Nobody bothered me for almost an hour.  Talk about a power nap.  Where’s your favorite place to nap?  Signed Sinkpus

Dear Sinkpus – Oh my piggy heavens!  I’m so going to have to remember this.  I don’t think I could make it up to the sink but behind the pedestal sink would be ideal.  No one would ever think to look for me there.  Thanks my friend for the ideal – Happy Sleeps


Dear Bacon – What?  There’s nothing to see here friend.  Just a dog tucked in to bed for the night.  Doesn’t everyone sleep this way?  Signed Nighty

Dear Nighty – Hey, I have no problems my friend.  I sleep like that all of the time in my toddler friend.  Nope, nothing to see.  Us anipals need to be comfy too in their homes.  Sleep on and sweet dreams of running through fields of flowers 🙂


Dear Bacon –  Here I am – Here I am – Throw the Ball.  I’m just trying to show Cam Newton how to couch the football – meows with evil laughter.  You know how to have fun with the game and be a good loser.  I’m not sure if he knows what that is all about.    Signed Fig

Dear Fig – There are so many places I could go with this but I won’t.  I will be nice and kind.  And if Mr. Newton is reading this – please take notes.  One needs to use the help of others, be nice and have fun with the game.  AND always remember, even if you lose a game – be the bigger person and take notes for what to do better next time.  Don’t sulk and have temper tantrums.  I’m just sayin’.


 Dear Bacon – I tried.  I really did.  I ate and then I couldn’t move anymore.  See, I’m just a little puppy.  I play hard.  I eat hard.  And I also sleep hard.  Hold me.  Signed Tuck

Dear Tuck – Oh my little friend.  Squeals with cuteness overload.  Sometimes you just can’t take anymore.  I know.  I’ve been known to do that as well.  And also Houdini – rolls piggy eyes.  That little guy also does the same all.of.the.time.  You were tuckered out Tuck.  Your tummy was nice and warm and full.  I just want to pet it looking at your picture.  All you needed was for your mommy to come pick you up and rock you while you sleep.  Don’t worry – you will grow out of this.  Take care Tuck.


REMEMBER MY FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can not happen without YOU.  Please keep sending me your pictures and letters to my email.

In Support of France

 Today before mom left for work, she lit a candle here at the Hotel Thompson.  A candle for support of France.  For uniting the world.  For a shoulder to lean upon.  For friendship.  For unity in being one.  For the 129 that perished.  We are heartbroken over the acts of terrorists.  They not only touched France, they touched us too by their acts.  We want France to know that they are not alone.

Today, we are going dark here on piglove in support of friendship with France in supporting them in their time of need.  We will have our candle lit all day here at the Hotel Thompson.  We would love you for to support this cause as well.

Bacon’s Tales of Terror

Welcome my friends to my monthly Bacon’s Tales of Terror.  Not only is it the thirteen this month, it’s Friday the 13th.  Does that make it scarier for you?  Are you afraid of Friday the 13th?  You might want to buckle up your seat belt my friends.  Today’s Bacon’s Tales of Terror is coming straight from the Hotel Thompson.  A true story that will make you second guess what you are looking at in your own home.  A story that might make you shake and shiver… and run to your mother.

You see when mom and dad first got married they had two purr things, Hemi and Tybee.  They were brothers from the same mother and one would never think so.  Hemi is a Hemingway, you know a polydactyl purr thing, and he is orange and white.  Tybee was grey – long haired and definitely mom’s purr thing. Tybee passed away in 2009 from feline leukemia.  It was totally unexpected as he had been tested twice for the disease.

Well the other morning, I was calling for mommy to wake up for work and to feed me.  She gets up, feels and sees Hemi between her and dad in the bed.  She also feels Mouse Girl (our other purr thing) at the bottom of the bed near her feet.  Gets up and walks around the bed seeing Mouse Girl and then walks out of the bedroom shutting the door.  She opens my bedroom door and we proceed to the front room where she turns on lights.  Once she turns on lights, she sees Mouse Girl lying on the couch fast asleep.

Now this fully wakes her up.  How can Mouse Girl be asleep on the couch when she saw and felt her asleep on her feet?  This isn’t the first time something like this has happened.  Mom and dad both have felt a purr thing rubbing against their legs… like Tybee used to do.  Mouse Girl and Hemi don’t do that.  And once, mom took a picture in the bedroom of the bed and there was an outline of a purr thing in the picture on her side which was not on the bed.

Do you believe in anipal ghosts?  Have you ever experienced an anipal coming back to visit with you?

Beware My Friends – Cougar in Area

   Oh my friends – here’s another great sign I’ve recently seen and what better day to post along with my Park Rules from this morning.  I’ve heard these cougars can be dangerous – ferocious even.  Protect yourself NOW.  Have you heard about these dangerous animals?

 Snorts and rolls with laughter!

Party On!

 Oh friends – ppssst – guess what?  Are you ready for this?  It doesn’t happen very often but I have the entire Hotel Thompson to myself today.  Squeals with piggy delight.  What to do first?  The choices are endless!

You are probably asking yourself how this happened… right?  I’m a psychic!  That’s right, call me the psychic pig – snorts and rolls with laughter.  You see mom was in her confinement of Jury Duty this week so she had to go to the office for a bit to get some things caught up.  (And she did say she will do a story about her captivity – be on the lookout for it next week maybe.)

Well mom took daddy with her.  The cats are at the groomers and Houdini is at grandma’s.  Can you say party on here with the piggy?  I’ve already ran through the halls, inspected all of the rooms, answered my emails and working on some blogs.  Perhaps I will text mom later.  You know, to find out when she is coming home.  I gotta make sure I clean everything before she gets back.

 I smell something delicious coming from the kitchen area that I gotta investigate.  And guess what – with their rush to get out of the home this morning guess who didn’t put up the piggy gate to the kitchen – score for this little oinker!  Don’t worry, I won’t make a mess.  I’ll be the perfect little porker.

So what do you have planned today?  Anything exciting?  Have you ever been left home alone?  It’s kind of scary in a way but so exciting on the other hoof.  I can county maybe this being the second time this has ever happened in FOUR years.  I’m a big pig now.  They need to do this more often.  See I’ll be good today to show them I can be trusted… somewhat.  Now, I’m off to get the front door.  That must be the pizza I ordered 🙂
