Dear Nacho, Noah, Buddy and Basil – Special Edition

 This week we have a wonderful special edition of Dear Bacon.  This week, our piggy friends Nacho, Noah, Buddy and Basil are stepping in to answer some letters.  We are so excited for their help!  Give them your attention and be sure to reach out to them about a great job they did this week!


Dear Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil,
This is just me and my boys hanging out at the corner. We like to wear shades so the girls can’t see us checking them out. Do you have any more ideas on how to pick up chicks? Signed Three Amigos

Hola Amigos!  Whee piggies are experts when it comes to ladypigs . . . erm ladypets. The trick is to tell them how bootiful they are. Simple as that. Before you know it they will be queuing round the block for a piece of you! Those shades look PAWesome and slightly bad boy. All girls love a bad boy.  The Four Brochachos  ~ Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil



Dear Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil,
Finally spring is here! Time to get out my little ice cream picnic table and enjoy some afternoon treats. But I have to ask. Does that cone make my snout look big? Signed Hooked on Ben and Jerry

Hey there Hooked on Ben and Jerry’s – That pignic table looks super cute and I love the little parasol. I’m glad you ask about concerns about the way you look in pigtures because that’s something so many pets are going to worry about this Summer. With the PAWparrazzi round efurry corner it’s easy to find yourself in unflattering positions. However I don’t think you’ve got anything to worry about with having such a great figure. The impawtent thing is to pretend the camera isn’t there. You are FABULOUS and don’t you forget it fellow piggy!  Believe me – I’m Buddy



Dear Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil,
If it fits, you must sits. I was only going to close my eyes for a few moments. Next thing you knew, I was in dreamland express. Where’s the weirdest place you ever fell asleep? Signed Boxcar Puppy

Hiya Boxcar Puppy – You look furry cute all sleepy there. The weirdest place I’ve ever fallen asleep. Hmmm, it would have to be the time when I climbed in the fruit bowl when Mummy’s back was turned. One minute I was on the little cushion on her lap, next I was on the table and by the time she turned I was curled up and napping in the nectarines! Good times furfriend, good times.  Sweet dreams – No Napping Nacho


Dear Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil,
My dad keeps telling the most childish jokes. Really. He needs to give up his desire of being a comedian. This is the only look I can muster these days. Any more suggestions for me? Signed Tired of Faking It

Yo Tired of Faking It – Hearing you loud and clear there furfriend. You wouldn’t believe the jokes whee have in our house. I have found that a loud squeak or jumping off something and making lots of noise and mess during the punchline is a good way to stop these comedy dreams!  Noisily Not Laughing Noah


Dear Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil,
Don’t let this cute, teacup size bunny fool you. It doesn’t matter how big the bun bun is in the fight but how much fight is in the bun bun. Inside I’m a jaguar waiting to pounce. Whistle. Get back and be afraid. How much fight do you have? Signed Splitting Hare

Wassup Splitting Hare – I am the same. Mummy says the biggest things come in the smallest packages because my massive pigsonality is overwhelming! Mummy calls me a git but I like to think I’m just feisty. Either way I get MY way and that’s what matters.   Any time you need a sparring partner shout for me.  Fight on Furfriend – Unbeatable Basil


Thank you so much to Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil for this weeks special edition.  We appreciate it so very much!!  

Remember friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without your help.  Please continue to send your questions/pictures to me at

Loyal Reader Award

Michelle Marie at gave me this Loyal Reader Award over the weekend. I am so excited! I appreciate her so much not only for giving me this award but for her inspiring positive posts that she does. This little oinker is secretly in love with her!

Here are the rules to The Loyal Reader Award:

1. Display this award on your blog. – Check

2. Thank the person who sent it to you. – Check

3. Answer a rhetorical question of the authors choosing. – Check

4. Send on the award to everyone you consider a loyal reader. – THIS is hard. I consider all of my friends loyal readers to this piglet. You support me in so many ways, you listen to my ramblings, we laugh together and we grow together. It’s really hard to pick just a few. I will try and pick a few here. I don’t want to leave out anyone and that’s the hardest part. So even if you are not listed, you are a loyal reader and please take this award! Thanks my friends!


The Question: If I am a tree, will I become a book or furniture?

My Answer: I think I would become furniture… most particularly a bed. A bed is where people spend most of their time when home, all snuggled up, comfortable in dream land. I would be a bed that brings you nothing but sunshine dreams with wonderful memories.
