Spotlight Thursday – Meet Harley Quinn

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!


Name:  Harley Quinn

Age:  9 months

Location:  Florida

Web/Blog Page:  https://www.facebook.com/harleyqbully

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? OMG…they’re giants!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  The Mommy and the Daddy came 3,000 miles to get me and took me home with them on an AIRPLANE.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  I ate mommy’s brand new baseboards right after the condo remodel.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I’m a Daddy’s girl, through and through.  We watch TV together in his recliner, and he takes me to breakfast and the dog park every Saturday while Mommy sleeps in.   Mommy is the one who takes me to the vet.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?   People see my face and think I’m all “sugar and spice and everything nice”, but I’m a tomboy who’s really more “snips and snails and puppy dog tails”.




Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon,

After reading your column last week about a cat that does yoga, I thought what the heck. My master has a room for meditation so I tried it.

This position is called my sitting dog pose. I really does work on calming your nerves. Thanks little pig. Signed Peaceful Pal

Dear Peaceful Pal,
I’m glad it worked out for you. You do look really grounded in that picture. Keep up the great work!

Dear Bacon – hiccup,

My humans tell me that – slurred – I’m spending too much time with my close friend Jose. Hiccup. They don’t complain about me catting around on the streets anymore. They just don’t like my choice of friends. Hiccup. What should I do. Can they pick my friends? Signed Frisky Fiesta

Dear Frisky Fiesta,
You do understand that your friend Jose is not really ‘real’, right? Instead of having a problem with your choice of ‘friends’, you’re humans might want to look into some classes for you… With TAA (Tomcats Alcohol Anonymous). Perhaps you should lose the hat, get a new friend and start listening to the humans. Take care my friend.

Dear Bacon,

Are baths really necessary? They freak me out. Signed Wet Purrbie

Dear Wet Purrbie,
I love baths. They’re very relaxing. Especially when mom puts bubbles in the water. Instead of fighting it, embrace it. My purr things here love the water. We all do. After a bath, we all get our hair done – that is heaven. Find your happy place during bath time and learn to enjoy it.

Dear Bacon,

Just wanted to let you know man that we enjoy your posts. Happy Friday. Signed Don’t Worry Be Happy

Dear Don’t Worry Be Happy,
Thanks so much. It takes support and encouragement from fans like you to keep it going. I appreciate that. Happy Friday back to you.

Dear Bacon,
One of my characters is Harry Potter. I’ve read all of his books and seen all of the movies multiple times. Do you think it’s weird of me to dress like this? Signed Harry Trotter

Dear Harry Trotter,
We can have our idols too. I favor Spiderman AKA Spiderpig. It doesn’t hurt anyone so why not? You trot my man – you trot!

Dear Bacon,
The other kitties in the house make fun of me because I pray every night. They say animals can’t do this. I say they can. What do you think? You never know until you ask, right?  Signed Praying Puss

Dear Praying Puss,
If He moves in your heart to pray, go for it. Don’t let others judge or try to change you. Pray on my friend.

Dear Bacon,
I need help. I just can’t smile. This is my happy face. I’m a rough and tumble kind of pooch.  I take no crap.  I protect the house.  I protect the master.  I can’t afford to smile.  A dog has to do what a dog has to do.  Any suggestions?  Signed Canine Exposed.

Dear Canine Exposed,

I understand wanting to protect the house, master and what is rightfully yours.  I’m going to assume that you are single.  You need to relax the lips and teeth sometimes and let someone close.  You can smile and still be a strong dog in charge.  Just know when to show the teeth and when not to.  Good luck!

Hey Pig,

Two people can play this game.  I borrowed your computer earlier and surfed the net.  You’re not the only one with skills.  Just wait until you find out where I’ve been using your log in.  HEE HEE – Signed Hemi the Master

Dear Hemi the You Think You Are The Master,

Stay out of my room.  I’m going to tell mom on you.  Keep your claws off what is not yours.  Just remember – all is fair in love and war.  I have the proof in the picture that you were using my toys again.  Be afraid.


Dear Bacon,

We think you’re handsome!  We all take turns driving a pink Corvette.  You would look awesome in it.  If you are ever in Dallas, come see us.  Signed Charlies Bunnies

Dear Charlies Bunnies,

Thanks for the invite girls.  You rock!

Wiggle Your Toes Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


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

Dear Bacon,
Hello my friend.  I see you have a squirrel for a friend – thank you for liking our kind.  And, I know you secretly want to be a super pig hero and wear a cape.  Anytime you want, you can be my sidekick!  Signed Super Squirrel

Dear Super Squirrel,

You are so on!  I love the thoughts of being your sidekick.  I’ve been trying to convince mom for a while now that I need a cape.  You think you can help me a little and talk to her?


20130601-001527.jpg
Dear Bacon,
I don’t think my friends have any clue whatsoever that I’m not really ‘one’ of them if you know what I mean.  I love this spy stuff – what about you?  Signed RacCat Bandit

Dear RacCat Bandit,

OMP (Oh my pig!)  That is so funny.  I fell off of the couch I was laughing so hard at that picture.  You are a little spy, aren’t you?  I can only imagine some of the information you have obtained with that disguise.  Maybe I need to get a mask for Halloween this year.  It would be a hoot!


20130601-001537.jpgDear Bacon,
It’s really not as hard as it looks.  I’ve been hanging out with some ladies all week and it’s been great fun!  My next step is to see if one of them will marry me.  Do you think I have a shot?  Signed RooFlam

Dear RooFlam,

Well, first of all I think you look great and you have some amazing talent for walking on sticks. I myself could never do that.  I just don’t have the balance.  Second off, you might want to rethink your mission.  It’s bound to come out eventually that you are not what you seem.


20130601-001548.jpgDear Bacon,
Sometimes I think a picture says a thousand words.  I think this is one of those occasions.  What do you think?  Signed Pom the Comedian

Dear Pom the Comedian,

Your picture is so wrong on so many different levels but I have to admit that I laughed… hard!  And, daddy laughed… hard!  Your poor brother – I’m not so sure he thought it was so funny.  All I gotta say, it was a good one but watch out.  I’m sure I’ll be getting a picture and email from your brother in the very near future!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Stella

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!


Name:  Stella Mc Cormick

Age:  15 years

Location:  Mustang Island, Texas

Web/Blog Page:  http://johnwhowell.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?   When i saw my mom for the first time I was living with my four siblings in a woodpile out in the woods. My birth mom was feral and my adoptive mom captured her and all the kids. We were only four days old and my new mom took us in and fed us with a bottle. She had my birth mom fixed and released back to the wild. We stayed with our new mom and when we were old enough she placed everyone but my brother and I in new homes. My first thought was this was some mom. She has loved me since then. Sadly my brother went over the rainbow bridge a year ago and so I’m the only feline in the house.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?   When I saw the brothers and sisters all go and I was still left I knew I was a chosen one. My brother felt the same.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  For some reason I decided to jump up on the table during dinner one time and wasn’t very careful. I caused a glass of red wine to take a tumble and it ended up in my mom’s lap. She was wearing white slacks at the time and I thought there was going to be trouble. All that happened is I was told to stay off the table. Of course, I completely ignore that order if I want to check things out. I now know all about wine glasses and I plan my landings to accommodate that risk.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Well mom originally wanted to keep only brother and dad talked her into keeping both of us. Mom was very sad when brother had to leave and so I’ve made a real effort to help cheer her. I still think I have dad wrapped. He always makes room for me when I bug him for a stroke.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?   Humans think because I disappear when they come to the house that I’m shy. It’s not that at all. I am really outflanking them and preparing to leap out in case of emergency. I’ve never had to do it but I’m willing to save the family in case of danger.




Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
