Happy Summer

Today is the first day of Summer.  It’s official – it’s time to play in the sun and water my friends.  Vacation is upon us.  A time to rest, relax and let go all of the worries in the world.  Revive our inner child.  Go on my friends.  Go outside and walk in the freshly cut grass – I might even attempt this today… of course with socks on – snorts.  Walk in a creek, get in the ocean or a pool.  And speaking of pools – I’ve gotta go now.  I’ve got to go call talk to that daddy of mine about a pool he should be getting this little oinker!

Have a great day my friends – Happy Summer!

T.G.I.F.

T.G.I.F.  Everyone recognizes those four letters from all over the world.  Thank Goodness It’s Friday.  Those four letters brings smiles and hoorays to the humans and us anipals.  But I bet you didn’t know that they also have another meaning.  Shocking huh?

You see my mom has worked a lot of different jobs.  She once worked with our local school system for six years.  Trust me, she has told me stories of those times.  There is *never* a dull moment working with elementary children – ever!  One of the stories that she told me was about T.G.I.F.  I’ve never forgotten it and neither has she.  It was sweet and kind and so childish – it was great and still brings a smile to mom’s face and mine to this day.  I’ll tell you what happened and you be the judge here okay.

Mom was in the front office of the school and this little boy who was in the first grade came into the office.  He was crying.  So mom being the gal she is walked up to him and immediately hugged him.  She then took him to the side office and they sat on the couch together.  You see he was having a bad day and it was only 9:00AM.  His dad was overseas in the military and his mom had to work.  She couldn’t get off work to come see him in his first grade play.  He was beside himself!  And for a first grader – this was just the end of the world – you can imagine.

Mom talked to him for a few moments and tried to get him to brighten up a bit.  She volunteered to step in for his mom to come see him in his play.  His upside down face turned into the biggest smile you would ever see and his tears of grief turned into tears of joy.  He just couldn’t believe that my mom was going to do that for him.  She got the time from him that she should attend and helped him clean up his face.

That’s when she noticed that one of his shoes were untied.  She got down on the floor and tied it for him.  That’s when she saw this T.G.I.F. written on the toes of his shoes.

What in the world?!  Was this small child thankful that it was Friday?  So she looked at him bewildered and said, “Scotty, what does TGIF mean to you?”  Scotty looked at my mom, grinned and started laughing.  The he said the sweetest thing to my mom.

“Miss Smith, I have a problem putting on my shoes.  My daddy fixed me right up though.  He wrote TGIF on the toes of my shoes to remind me that Toes Go In First.”

Texts from Bacon

What can I say?  Sometimes this sweet Bacon has an alternative side that comes out that mom refers to as deviled ham.  I know – those days are tough.  Last night, we went to a local carnival.  Mom called before hand to ask if I could go.  They were all for it.  Me, mom and dad went and was having a really good time.  I’ve never been petted so much in my entire life!  Things got a little carried away though towards the end and deviled ham came out.  Shuffles hooves and puts head down – it happened and I can’t take it back.  So you know when we got back to the Hotel Thompson, I had to serve time for the crime.  Here’s a text between me and mom.  My texts are in blue and moms are in gray.  Enjoy my friends.

Leprechaun Catcher

20130314-212652.jpg

I have a little friend named Kelsey. She made this Leprechaun Catcher for St. Patricks Day. Isn’t it wonderful? It totally blew me away. I thought it was the cutest thing! I couldn’t wait to show it to mom. Mom thought it was awesome as well. She said that children come up with some of the most amazing things. I agree.

So I have a question for you Ms Kelsey. Once you catch that leprechaun, can I have the catcher. For some reason when I look at it, my tummy growls. 🙂

Being the Responsible One

20130321-223227.jpgI feel the humans now – it’s hard being a good parent!

Mom says for me to hang in there and once Bashful gets his ‘baby phase’ behind him he will be better.  I’m not sure that’s possible.  And what if I’m doing this all wrong?  What if he turns out like his dad, a rolling stone, or gets involved in a bad rock band? 

Sometimes I feel like I never get enough rest.  Having kids is hard!  I feel like a zombie pig on same days and just go through the motions so I can finally get back in bed.  It does get better, right?

I’ve been so tired lately that I even gave mom a hard time last night.  I was being fussy with her and she understands.  She sat me down and we talked about it.  It’s all about love.  I feel better after our talk and took a nap.  Mom helped out with Bashful for a little bit and took him for a walk.  He was a lot better afterwards too.  I guess she wore him out because when they got back, he was out like a light and slept a solid 8 hours for a change.  That was such a relief!

Bashful is doing better.  He’s gotten accustomed to living at the Hotel Thompson.  He’s practically house trained now and doesn’t have any accidents.  He rolls around the house and plays with the purr things a lot.  Sometimes he gets a little rough and I have to break things up.  He got into the cereal the other night and ate an entire box of Fruity Pebbles.  It was all over the floor.  But this little hoover cleaned everything up before mom went into the kitchen.  The hard part is trying to keep him on a schedule.  And, dad has taught him Rock, Paper, Scissors.  Shakes head, he always picks paper for some reason.   

So my friends, help me out here.  Any words of encouragement for raising Bashful to be the best “s t o n e” he can be?  Thanks my friends – XOXO – Bacon

My Mom Loves Me

20120104-205449.jpg

<a

My heart is full of love for my mommy. I look forward to her coming home from work in the afternoons. I can hear moms car pull up in the driveway before anyone else can. I'll run to the front door with my tail just wagging. I know as soon as she comes in she's going to bend over and love me all before she puts anything down.

She will feed me dinner in my room while she fixes her dinner. Afterwards, she will hold me on the couch, talk to me and rock me to sleep. Since the first day she held me, I knew I was safe with mommy.
