Collect Rocks Day

Today, September 16th is Collect Rocks Day!  This day is right up Bacon’s alley.  You know because Bacon collects rocks.  Not just any rocks but pet rocks.

Collect Rocks Day is a day to enjoy your pet rocks.  Pet rocks are not just stones that sit there all day.  They are individuals.  They are pets.  They have wonderful attitudes. And might I add – they are PROS at Hide and Go Seek.  One time, Bashful hid in the fish tank and it took us almost three days to find him – that was fun!  So you see, they also have a sense of humor.

It doesn’t matter what they look like.  It doesn’t matter what economical background they come from.  All that matters is the love and fun that is had with your rocks.  Sounds like humans should take note of this huh?

So from all of the rock clan here at the Hotel Thompson – Happy Collect Rocks Day!

Bashful is Home!

Bashful is home!  He came home late last week and with mom/dad running around like crazy peeps, they finally got to talk to Bashful about his adventures in Wyoming. We can’t say thank you enough to our sweet friends in Wyoming.  Bashful has been talking our ears off with everything that he did – visiting mountains, meeting new friends and trying new foods.  And look at all of the goodies he came home with – not just one friend but THREE friends.  We are having a blast!  And I guess our friends in Wyoming knew how stressed mom has been lately – they even sent her some bath stuff to calm down and destress… and trust me she needs that STAT.  So sweet friends – THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.  I don’t think we can say that enough.  And sweet friends, don’t forget your sweet badge showing you hosted our Bashful –

And Bashful.  Well Bashful is getting some rest this week.  Why?  Because next week he is going to have an adventure with all of us here at the Hotel Thompson.  He is part of our huge surprise for September.  It will all be revealed by the end of next week.  Squeals with piggy excitement!

Wiggle Your Toes Day

Friends – What a glorious day this is – Wiggle Your Toes Day!  Think about it – whether you have paws, toes, hooves or whatever, sometimes it just feels good to spread those toes and wiggle them.  Let those piggies loose (no offense Bacon).

Humans push their toes in shows or socks all day long.  They are always in a rush and sometimes forget to slow down.  Today, slow down!  Take those toes out of their confinements, wiggle them and let them breathe for a while.

Toes, hooves or paws come in all different sizes and shapes.  Have you wiggled your toes yet today?

Friendship Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Who could ask for a better day?  The first Sunday of August is always Friendship Day.  Isn’t that a wonderful day to celebrate?  What is better than friends – whether they come in the human form or the animal form.  Friends are always there with us in good times and in bad times, to share special moments in our lives.  Sometimes all it takes is just a smile, holding a hand, a hug or just an ear or shoulder to cry on.

Friendship Day should be celebrated by phone, in person or by reaching out in an email or blog.  You don’t have to live next door to show someone how much you care.  Express your friendship in some way today and show the ones that you love what they mean to you.

NOTE FROM PIGLOVE –

We here at Piglove would like to tell all of our friends here how much we love and appreciate them.  You put up with our silliness, our sometimes seriousness (although it doesn’t happen often) and our whack-o ways.  We started Piglove as an outlet to share memories of Bacon… a cute little miniature pot bellied pig.  This blog has grown so much to include Houdini, Hemi, as well as Journalist Rocky the Squirrel and all of the rock clan. 

 You have helped me to personally grow and do something that I love, to write and make people laugh.  I would like to take this time on Friendship Day and tell each and everyone of you – Thank You for being our friends.  We cherish our times, our talks, our emails and phone calls.  We cherish your ‘go with this’ attitude when we come up with something whacky and new.  You can never imagine how much your friendship means to us.  Here’s to another year of great posting, inter-action with our friends and much laughter –  Bacon’s humans

International Day of Friendship

  Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Of all of the important holidays I can tell you about, today seems to be the most important in my book.  July 30th is International Day of Friendship.  The world is filled with too much hate, too many wars, too much prejudice and way too many disagreements.  Today, we should put all of that aside and reach out to each other and say, “Hello friend happy friendship day!”

This is just not a backyard problem or a school playground problem.  This is a worldwide problem.  A problem that needs to come to an end.  Everyone has differences – we wouldn’t be individuals if we didn’t.  But when you look down to it, we all want to be happy and what better way than to get along.

Today let’s make friends with different people, different cultures and different countries.  Extend your hand – or an olive branch – and say hello friend.  Say hello to your neighbor, to the stranger at the market and say hello to a person that you see everyday but you don’t even know their name.  Today is the day to make a friend near and far.

To all of our friends, we at the Hotel Thompson would like to say thank you for being our friend – happy friendship day.  And to those that don’t know us yet, Happy Friendship Day.  May we get to know you better today and in the future!

 Who will YOU say hello friend to today?

National Parent’s Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

Today, July 23rd is National Parents Day.  Everyone has a parent – 🙂  Today is a special day to honor your mother and father – biological or adopted.  I know Bacon appreciates the time he spent with his biological mother and father.  If it wasn’t for them, he wouldn’t have the great parents he has today.  Bacon’s biological parents wished nothing but the best for him and I think he has it here at the Hotel Thompson with his human mom/dad.

All of us here at the Hotel Thompson are very lucky to have mom/dad.  There’s so much love!

Today, National Parents Day, brings the real meaning of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.  Spend some time with your parents doing something fun and most important showing them how much they are loved and appreciated.
