Mom has been making fun of me the past couple of mornings. I’ve been watching the bunnies in the back yard too much from my window in my bedroom. I’ve seen how they move. How quick they are. How comical they look. So when I come out of my room, I’ve been trying to make myself look like a bunny jumping down the hall. It really is fun for me but mom finds it really hysterical. She laughs at me and tells me, “Bacon, you’re a pig not a rabbit”. I just snort and continue jumping down the hall. I think its fun, almost like a game. Mom says that she is going to try to video tape me doing it this weekend.
I’m not really sure why mom is so surprised that I’m trying to act like a bunny. I mean, really, let’s think about this. What do bunnies eat? Bingo – carrots. What did I just get 5 pounds of for Christmas? Right again, carrots. I eat them constantly around the house. You would think that with as many carrots that I eat, two things would happen.
(1) I would be a bunny because I have the tendency to look at mom while I’m eating a carrot and say, “What’s up Doc?” (for you younger generation, check out Bugs Bunny on television – it’s one of my favorite cartoons to watch on my television); and
(2) I would have a much better vision capacity but I don’t. Carrots have a lot of Vitamin A in them which is suppose to help with eyesight. It’s not just a myth or something your mother made up to eat your veggies. There’s documented proof. With that information, you would think with as many carrots as I eat that I would be able to see through walls! Unfortunately, pigs have very bad eyesight but don’t feel sorry for me yet. What we lack in vision, we make up in smell. Mom says I’m better than a beagle or basset hound when it comes to smell. Heck, I think I would be a fantastic P9 (Pig-Nine)… you nothing something like a K9 (Canine) working for the police department. I can track things down like you wouldn’t believe! But, hey, I digress… that’s another post all together – snort LOL
So for now, I’m a bunny. Why don’t you hop around a couple of times today to think about me.
