Happy Birthday Bacon!

 Hey Bacon’s friends.  This is Bacon’s mom and dad here.  We are hi-jacking the little guy’s blog this afternoon for an important announcement.  Today is also our pig-son’s birthday.  Our baby Bacon turns the big 6 today!  Can you believe he was born on our anniversary?  Just one more little sign that his adoption was meant to be with us.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BACON!

Bacon has brought so much joy here at the Hotel Thompson.  When I tell you there is *never* a dull moment, that is certainly the truth.  Bacon is like the little child we never had.  He’s very smart – as you all know from him writing his blog here – cough cough.  It doesn’t matter what kind of day you’ve had, how much stress you encounter in the world – he is always here waiting for you with a snort and oink.  I’m not sure what me or Jim would do without Bacon and our other ‘children’: Houdini, Hemi and Mouse Girl in our lives. They bless us beyond our imagination.

So today, we raise our glass with you our friends to send out a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the best pig-son we could ever have.  And here’s to years and years of more happiness and adventures!  Help us out our friends in wishing Bacon the best of all birthdays!

Bacon – may all your dreams come true.  May you have more delights today than ever before.  We love you our boy!

And thanks to my bro across the pond – Phenny – for these awesome presents.  That card was almost as big as me!  I loved it.  Thanks bro ❤

Catching Up -Someone Had a Birthday

Oh friends – what a great past couple of days.  There is so much to catch up with – snorts.  You see, mom has been off from the worky place since Friday, June 30th.  Isn’t that awesome?!  Since mom has been going full steam with the exercise and it was her birthday this holiday, she put up her Apple i-Watch and let her hair down so to speak.  She told dad that she claimed the Hotel Thompson to be a “No Exercise/Diet” palace until she went back to work today.  Now don’t worry.  She didn’t go to crazy, just the opposite in fact.

Mom went out with Nana on Saturday and we think she got overheated.  She came home in the afternoon feeling icky with germs of a summer cold.  She just couldn’t get cold enough.  In fact, at one time I thought she was going to climb in the freezer.  That would have been fun.  Of course, I would have taken pictures for sure.

She felt better Sunday and her/dad went shopping to all of her key places.  And for her birthday, she picked up this outfit to the right.  So her, right?!  I mean who could have picked a better outfit?  Of course dad is still shaking his head in disbelief that mom bought jeans with holes *already* in them.  Hilarious that mom of mine for sure.  And I did mention birthday.

Mom’s birthday was 7/3 – she turned 39 again.  Her/dad celebrated on the fourth with all of the fireworks and dad something about still making their own fireworks after 29 years… silly daddy huh?  Oh and mom wants to thank everyone for their well wishes on Facebook, their calls and their cards.  All of them really touched her ❤  We love all of you very much!!

I made sure mom got plenty of rest, love and shopping in her days off – and no exercise.  It was hard to push her out of bed this morning to go back to work.  I tell you.  A pig’s job is never done – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

Dear Bacon

20140111-195536.jpg Dear Bacon – This is the pits.  No, I mean it really.  It’s not bad enough that my humans put these ridiculous pajamas on me.  Now I have to wear the cone of shame.  AND they sat me in a make shift bed which is really an old potty box with a blanket.  Really?  This is how they treat me.  Can you give me a word of encouragement my piggy friend?  Signed Cat in the Hat

Dear Cat in the Hat – You know my friend.  You are looking at this all wrong.  Look at it from the positive prospective.  They put pajamas on you – I’m guessing – so that you wouldn’t scratch whatever you had done surgically, right?  Then they put the pitiful projector on your head so you couldn’t lick or bite that particular surgical spot, right?  AND then they put you in a comfortable spot with a blankie so you would be comfy.  See, look at it from this perspective.  Do you know what all of that adds up to this little piggy?  To me, it says your humans care for you way more than you think and want you to be comfortable during this duration.  Instead of looking at it from your point of view, take it from my point of view.  And let me add, suck it up for all it’s worth – humans love that when they think they’ve done something to you 🙂


20140111-195548.jpg Dear Bacon –  Can you believe my humans have the audacity to blame ‘me’ – innocent cute little ‘me’ – as stealing one of their valuable orange crunchy things they snack on while watching television?  Me.  There is no way they can pin this crime on me.  There is no proof!  Signed Cheeto

Dear Cheeto – Do me a favor my friend.  Go to your nearest mirror and look at yourself.  Go ahead.  I’l wait.  Whistles while waiting and taps hooves.  Oh good you are back.  Did you see that incriminating evidence on your cute little face?  The orange stuff my friend.  That would be evidence of eating your humans prized Cheetos.  By your name, I’m thinking this is not your first run in with the law on being busted for this crime.  Might I make a suggestion for future escapades?  Once you have partaken of the evil Cheeto, go drink some water out of your bowl with delight.  I mean slush that water around on your cute little face to wash the orange stuff off.  No proof means it didn’t happen my friend.  Happy eating.


20140111-195556.jpg

Dear Bacon – I was cold.  It was freezing in this house.  My humans like to hang me as they so delightfully like to say.  Don’t worry about us little pooches.  I had to resort to the last step and wrap myself like a hot dog.  It does the trick especially with the sun coming in from the window.  Have you ever been this cold?  Signed Cold Dog

Dear Cold Dog – WOW.  I say if you’re cold, go for it my friend.  I’m one of the very few here with us anipals that love it cold.  I’m with my mom and like you said, we like to hang meet here at the Hotel Thompson.  The colder the better.  Heck, if we could skip over summer we would so do so.  Stay warm my friend!


20140111-195606.jpgDear Bacon – Here is my brother.  He is so weird.  I was looking down at the dog just minding my own business.  That’s when Patches (my bro) jumped up and pulled my head up.  What was so important that he wanted me to see you ask?  The humans were cooking breakfast.  Something smelled so delightful.  They call it bacon.  I’m just wondering.  Do you know what this glorious smell is?  Signed Matches

Dear Matches – I know exactly what that awful stuff called bacon is.  It’s horrible.  Such a bad thing to ever try.  Some humans get addicted to it.  See, that’s how bad it is for you cats.  Once hooked, they can’t go back.  And I for one can guarantee you that you don’t want to get hooked on that bad drug.  Yeah, it’s a bad drug.  Better steer far away from it my friends.  I wouldn’t want it to stunt your growth or anything.  Snorts!

 


20140111-195617.jpgDear Bacon – Don’t you jussst love my new ssssweater?  I got it for my birthdaysss.  I just love to sssslither around the house wearing itsss.  I think it makesss me ssslim and bringsss out the color of my eyessss.  What do you thinksss?  Signed Sexy and I Know It

Dear Sexy and I Know It – As long as YOU think you are sexy and you know it, does it really matter what anyone else thinks?  You rock that sweater around your house all you want.  Perhaps maybe next time your humans can get you a longer one?  Keep slithering there where you are my friend.

Happy Birthday Hemi

20130624-194724.jpg

This post goes out to my brother Hemingway – Hemi for short. He is a lot of things here at the Hotel Thompson.

He is my brother.

He is my friend.

He is the master cat.

He is mom/dads oldest.

I talk about him a lot here on my blog. Mostly about him using his ginormous paw to slap me on the rump – snorts. But really, today is his birthday. Today he turns the big 13 years old. Happy birthday Hemi.

20130624-195359.jpg

And just remember Hemi, with your age – snorts –

you might want to cut back on spanking this oinker.

Just sayin’

PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud!)

Oh friends, did you know that mommy/daddy adopted Hemi and his brother Tybee when they were three weeks old?  They barely had their eyes open and had just started walking – I guess you could say that was walking.  Their little tails were like a piece of yarn – 🙂  They had gotten picked up by Animal Control and taken to the shelter.  Mom and dad saved them both and brought them home.  They are such softies when it comes to us four legged animals, you know 🙂

 

 

And special thank you to Phenny across the pond who sent me and my brother Houdini some birthday goodies.  We are sending you lots of meow’s, hogs and snout kisses ❤

Houdini’s Birthday Video

I just have to share Houdini’s birthday video from last week.  You talk about being a tiny little bit spoiled!  Sheesh – that dog is rotten!  Okay, I’ll let you be the judge of rotten.  You look at this video and you tell me what you think.  Ignore mom/dad’s singing.  We all know that southern speech and singing don’t go together – snorts with piggy laughter.

Paw Time with Houdini


Today is a very important day.  Why you ask?  Because today is my birthday – do a little dance – shake your captains quarters – have fun tonight!  Mom threw me a little party.  Here are some pictures from it.  It was definitely a blast!  Daddy said I scored with the gifts.  And instead of a cake, mom had me some dog friendly cookies and cupcakes made.  What a blast!

National Nurses Week

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

 

Very important week this week – there are lots of different ways to acknowledge this wonderful professional.  Here are some important dates for you to remember:

  • May 6th thru May 12th is National Nurse’s Week.
  • May 6th is National Nurses Day
  • May 7th is National School Nurses Day
  • May 8th is National Student Nurses Day
  • May 12th is International Nurses Day

This entire week provides recognition to nurses for their contribution and commitment to quality health care.  We should all be aware of the importance of nurses in all stages of our lives from infant to elderly.  They comfort us, support us, encourage us and help us in our times of need.

Did you know? The roots of International Nurse’s Day goes back to 1953.  Dorothy Sutherland who was over the US Department of Health, Education and Welfare sent a proposal to President Eisenhower to proclaim a Nurse Day in October of the following year.  The proclamation was not officially made.  But, this week was created and gained national recognition.

Also did you know?  International Nurse’s Day is celebrated on May 12th because that is the birthday of Florence Nightingale.

So here’s a HUGE thank you to all of the wonderful nurse’s out there who take care of all of our loved ones and give that extra love.
