Dear Bacon – I need some help. I experience a lot of road rage when I’m driving these days. Any suggestions? Signed Mad Cat
Dear Mad Cat – First of all let’s just start with, what the heck are you thinking? Step away from the back of the wheel. That might be the problem in itself. You should not be driving my furry little animal. Leave that crazy behavior to the humans.
Dear Bacon – Just to show you, you’re not the only little four legged animal to be surfing the net. I’m forever doing it myself while the missus sits on the couch behind me watching television. Man, we can learn a lot from that internet, can’t we? Signed Dog in Charge
Dear Dog in Charge – You got that right my friend. The internet is huge. Some of the things I find are unreal! I’m glad to see you computer savvy. I may have to get you to write an article for my blog!
Dear Bacon – The humans – they are so funny… well they think they are. The master put this watermelon on my head and then called me a melon head. I don’t get it. Do you? Signed Melon Head
Dear Melon Head – I don’t get the saying but I do get the watermelon. I love me some watermelon. They can put it on my little head but it won’t stay there that long. I will eat that watermelon rind in about 3 minutes flat!
Yum – Yum!
Dear Bacon – As you know, when we find that comfy spot – we go for it. This is how the master found me. But I was good. Really, I was. Signed Contortionist Pooch
Dear Contortionist Pooch – WOW – that is quite the pretzel sleep look you got going there. I’m all about getting into that one position that makes the Sandman come but that takes the top spot. I don’t really have that kind of flexibility with you know my pot belly and everything.
You actually might have a career in the circus with the way that you can bend. It kind of makes me hurt just looking at that position.
Dear Bacon – You know how they say people wear their hearts on their sleeves? Well, I wear mine on my hind quarters. What do you think? Signed Love
Dear Love – I have to admit I snorted and giggled. That was funny my friend. That is quite the birthmark you have there. I think it’s kind of cute. I like it my friend! Wear it with pride.
Dear Bacon – These chickens are forever pestering the heck out of me when I’m in the yard. I don’t care where I go, they follow me around like pesky dogs pecking at everything. I can’t even use the giant scratch box outside anywhere in private without them being there to disturb me. Well I think I finally got one up on them. They can’t get through the front door. The can look like like peeping chickens but not get in. So I did something just to tick them off. I stretched out on the floor and was blowing butt biscuits their way. Eventually the smell hit them. Rolls and purrs with kitty laughter. Maybe they will leave me alone now. You think? Signed Butt Biscuits
Dear Butt Biscuits – OMP! I usually call them food ghosts but I think I like butt biscuits from now on. Those chickens need to understand there is a line to be drawn of leaving fellow anipals alone. We have some chicks next door to us. They fly everywhere – even in my magical backyard. They drive me nuts too. Just wait until the next time I’m out there. I’m going to throw them a butt biscuit – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter!
Dear Bacon – Sometimes one just knows when their humans are not having a great day. It could be from the sighs they make when they come through the doorway, the dismantled look they have with their clothes or it could be the fact that they kick their shoes off – or already have them off – by the time they come through the threshold. Whatever the reason it is, sometimes us anipals need to make sure we step up and have the home front ready for them. Take for instance this case, my human daddy had a very rough day. I put on my finest attire and had a glass of wine waiting for him. I think it brightened his day. So much so that he didn’t notice my new jewels on my neck. We’ll save that part of telling him when he gets the credit card bill. Barks! Signed Tiffany
Dear Tiffany – I like the way you think. I need to do this for mom the next time she comes home all disheveled from doing monthly statistics. Sometimes when she does this, she can’t even remember her name. Your awesome! And when your dad gets the credit card bill, blame it on the poodle next door.
Dear Bacon – It’s embarrassing. Really it is. No it’s not the scarf or the clothes. It’s not even the hair. It’s embarrassing that my human can’t pick a better place to take my picture than leaning against this tree. I mean dude, look there is a rink behind me. I could be ice skating and showing off my skills for a picture of a lifetime. But no… the human thinks this trees adds to my dimension. What an idiot. Signed Much More
Dear Much More – I believe it! I really do. I know you are much more than just a gorgeous face. Maybe hire someone on the side to help you out with your photo shoots. Just think of the money you could make showing off those awesome skills! Get to work. I can’t wait to see them.
Dear Bacon – My humans love me so much that they had me a special blanket made just for me. And everyone should know that this blanket is mine and only mine. What do you think about it? You want one too, don’t you? Signed Sexy and I Know It
Dear Sexy and I Know It – YES! YES! YES! I want one too. I think it is absolutely gorgeous. It just shows how special you are and nobody can say it’s not your blanket. Use it with pride sweet friend!
Dear Bacon – As you can see, I’m in this contraption my new humans like to call a box. I call it a box of hell. I mean I was okay with the humans putting me in it and taking me to their vehicle but to strap me in like the box is part of me – they will pay. Not at first because I’m fortunate to be adopted. But after a while… after making my new living conditions mine, they will pay. I smell dog in this car so I do hope they have a dog and I do hope said dog is ready to be blamed for everything. Signed Nails Out
Dear Nails Out – Oh pal. I hate to say it but it’s almost funny to look at the picture. Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not laughing at your situation. Of course I wouldn’t do that. But the picture of a box with arms attached – oh have mercy. I so understand the complete concept of payback. That poor pooch doesn’t know what is coming to his digs.
Dear Bacon – Everyone keeps saying that can’t wait for winter or fall and the cooler weather. I say no. I like the summer. You don’t see us anipals bundles up to go out to use the facilities. You don’t see us anipals where boots and coats when it’s raining. This is me from last year. bbbrr – can’t you just feel the cold weather. Nope. I think I’ll pass…. but I guess mother nature won’t let me. So, it’s time to dig out my umbrella, scarf and rain boots again. There’s nothing like trying to pee outside where water is already all over you. Signed Special
Dear Special – You know I like the way you think my friend. I myself am not very fond of the outdoors, especially in the elements. Perhaps your humans can fix you a potty area off of the back door or something. You know so you don’t get wet. But if not, I have to say you look adorable in your fall outfit for sure.
Dear Bacon – Hey dude. I’m like saying to my humans that if the potential president of our United States can have a comb over, like why can’t I? Right? And I have to admit that like I carry the comb over so much better than that dude for sure. I mean like for real! This is like my look and I’m digging it for sure. I like the close shave all except my comb over which makes me like stand out in front of everyone else. I mean dude with that in mind, maybe *I* should run like for the president of these United States. I think like I have as much experience as the others, right? Would you like vote for a dude like me? Signed Dude
Dear Dude – I think everyone in the United States should write you in when they vote. Just your views on life and your style, that makes you stand out in front of everyone else. Nobody can claim that you have a double making appearances. Nobody can claim that your cold. Nobody can claim that you are not your very own dog. I like that in a running campaign. I say go for it. And remember, free treats for everyone that votes!
Dear Bacon – They say you can be whoever you want to be. I’ve always wanted to be a dinosaur. I mean who wouldn’t, right? I’ve always roared and told my humans that I’m strong like dinosaur. They found this horse coat and boom they knew it had my name all over it. Now, I love wearing it. Wouldn’t you be scared if you saw me coming your way? You would, wouldn’t you? Signed Roar
Dear Roar – Oh my piggy heavens! I’m shaking with fear. That is so awesome my friend. I love your coat and I think you make the coat. I think it’s awesome that your humans bought if for you. In fact,with your coat on, you could be a superhero. I can see it now on all the televisions and papers – “Super Roar Adventures”. It has a great sound to it, right? Keep having an awesome time in your coat dear friend!
Dear Bacon – I claim not fair! My doggy rights have been violated. Who do I need to make a report to? My friends are buttheads. That’s right. I said it. They kept telling me about a new friend they met and how we had to meet because I would love them. That’s when they introduced me to the new friend and then stepped to the side to take a picture of me saying hello. Buttheads. How do I get even Bacon? Signed Caught Sniffing
Dear Caught Sniffing – Shaking my piggy head. I’m so glad that I’m not the only one that gets caught in these types of things. I’m so sure that there will come a time when they forget about this incident and everything with the stars line up just right that you will get even for sure. AND I’m thinking it might be better than this episode… maybe.
❤ Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue emailing me your pictures and letters ❤
Friends – can we bark? Moms do the silliest things. No reason – I’m being honest. Now I’m a pooch and I’m *never* going to turn down a toy…not evah! But sometimes, I think we need to discuss parameters.
Let’s take a look at this picture. It’s called Silly Bums Junior. Look closely at the picture… “Nothing BUTT fun for your dog”. Shaking my Yorkie head. Friends, this is the hind leg quarters of a chicken… two legs, the back side and big fluffy tail. No head, no arms, no nothing – just the BUM.
Now when me and dad had “the” conversation a couple of weeks ago and he said one day I would like a bit of a$*!)$, this is not what I expected or the picture he drew. What? Don’t all anipals go through that ‘talk’?
But let me get back on point. This is the stuffed toy that mom brought me home one day. Now it has a squeaky toy. It has crinkles. It’s furry. And let me just say that I tore that ass up because that toy is no more – barks with puppy laughter.
And with all of that talk behind me, I do kiss my mommy with that mouth. See I love my mommy and she loves me. She even closes her eyes when she kisses me. That’s love, right?
So I hope your day is wonderful my friends and I hope that your weekend is even better. We are all expecting a package here at the Hotel Thompson and I’m hoping that it comes tomorrow. Keep your paws, fingers or hooves crossed that it gets here in time cause we can’t wait to get it.
I know that sounds mysterious but once we get it in hand, we will definitely share with you what it is. Any thoughts?
And of course, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy. Hope you enjoy! ♥
HA – BARKS! Mommy said that this was the cutest tail that she has even seen – barks with puppy laughter. Sorry Bacon and daddy – I gotta cute butt – what can I say?! Okay I have to admit that in this picture, daddy had my upmost attention. You can tell by the way I’m standing – the position of my cute tail and my one ear standing up. Daddy was actually giving me a treat. Just ignore dad’s holey shirt – barks! Mommy says that his around the house shirt only. And you know, this pooch will take as many and any kind of treats he can get.
And Bacon take notice of my t-shirt. HA! I know – I know. I probably should not have gotten it but it was so darn cute. And I gotta pick on my bro – if I don’t, who will, right? Okay maybe Hemi will by slapping him on his hiney with his huge paw – now *that* is something I never get tired of watching. Talk about amusement here around the Hotel Thompson.
And today is an awesome day my friends. Do you know what today is? I mean more than just being the obvious Friday? Today is the last day at work for my mom. She starts her holiday when she leaves work today. YES – DO A LITTLE DANCE – HAPPY DANCE. Nine entire days with having mommy at the Hotel Thompson. I’m so excited I may wee myself!
Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well. Happy weekend!
Snorts – you see this is a funny story. There comes a time in a little doggie’s life that he needs a bath. Some things are instilled in a pet’s mind that he knows what is coming. This is one of those times. I got to watch from the sidelines and took some pictures… and of course snorted a couple of times here and there. You know because of the little guys antics. He can really be funny when he wants to be.
See first there was the, “Houdini come here it’s bath time.” As soon as I heard those words, I knew it was on for some fun times. See, I don’t run from bath time. I enjoy bath time. I think it’s fun to stomp my feet and blow bubbles in the water. Houdini on the other hand, he likes to be a clown.
He ran around the front room hiding. In fact, you can see him in this picture. He thinks since you can’t see his face, you can’t see him… regardless of the point that his wahoo is in the air – snorts with piggy laughter. What a clown huh?
But it gets better. I ran into the bathroom where mommy was headed once Houdini was caught. Once caught, he was fine. He cuddled and played and licked mommy. That’s when I noticed it in the bathroom. You are asking what pig – what did you notice?
Look at this bottle and what is marked – here you go:
“Remember to eliminate all escape routes and in advance (a tip: once your pet is slippery wet he or she is suddenly smarter and faster than you are.)”
Oh my goodness – who writes these instructions? I want to high hoof them – it’s great! It’s fantastic. It made me oink! It made mom oink…. okay maybe laugh or chuckle or maybe snort.
But all is good afterwards. Look at the cute little poochie now. All squeaky clean. Sparkly if you will.
And if you look a long time at the picture, it starts to look like Houdini is smiling. So maybe… just maybe… I’m not the only one who enjoys a nice bath.
What do you think? You think he enjoyed the bath?
Oh and I have to give it to the little guy – excellent choice in hide and go seek. Butts up anyone? Snorts with piggy laughter.
Snorts. You know sometimes I look at sending mommy texts at work as being a perk. I mean hey, I know she can’t make it throughout the day without me and that she misses me so very much. It is my job to keep her entertained, right? Well the other night when she was working, it was no exception. I sent her a text 🙂 My texts are in blue and mom’s are in gray.
