Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I’m a clown in the circus.  I love working in the circus except for one thing – I don’t like when people squeeze my red nose.  Other than that, it’s a blast.  Signed Pancho the Donkey Clown

Dear Pancho the Donkey Clown – That’s *all* you worry about?  People squeezing your red nose?  Not your clothes, the hat or the make-up.

Just the people squeezing your nose?  Dude, go with it!  Have fun at a job you love and earn your money while you can.

Maybe one day you can move to that donkey retirement community you’ve been looking into.


20130220-081227.jpgDear Bacon – I’m a happy pooch now.  I had some problems with my teeth and my master took me to the dentist.

I am so happy with the results!  AND he put in a little bling for me.  What do you think?  Signed Smiling Pooch

Dear Smiling Pooch – Well, your smile brought a smile to my face – it must be working.  You do look really happy in that picture.

And, I kind of like the bling.  Your master must really love you my friend!

Dear Bacon – Sometimes in life, we just have to stop and smell the roses.  You know, take each day one day at a time and focus in on the moment.  I’m a lot more relaxed these days doing that.  Signed Goat of Leisure.

Dear Goat of Leisure – Yes my friend.  You do look really relaxed in that floatie.  I think I may have to take some time today to enjoy the moment.  Thanks for sharing your deep thoughts.


20130220-081245.jpgDear Bacon – We have a game in the house where us purr things get into the boxes that are attached by the string.  The string is attached to the barky thing that pulls us around the house.  It’s really kind of fun.

Maybe you can use this traveling method for your purr things?  Signed Sliding Kitties

Dear Sliding Kitties – Yes I think that would be perfect for the purr things here.  *I* can get in a box and *they* can pull me around the house.

Perhaps they can bow down to me as well – snort.  It does look like a fun way to travel through the house!


 

20130220-081254.jpgDear Bacon – It’s cold outside in this weather.  Betsy and I have been knitting and this is what we came up with.  It’s quite the hit on the farm.  It did take us a while to knit it though – it’s hard knitting with your beaks.  What do you think?  Signed Two Cold Chicks

Dear Two Cold Chicks – That is very creative.  I’m kind of digging it.  Do you think you ladies can create something for me?  I would cherish it and wear it forever!

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks my friend!!  I hope you had an awesome week in your neck of the woods.  It has done nothing here but rain and then rain some more.  If this keeps up, I’m going to have to get some floaters for my arms and start building a boat.  It’s that watery here at the Hotel Thompson.  I wanted to take a look back at that shirt mom got me that said, “Mommy’s Trouble Maker”.  I want to share Exhibit A in said picture.  If I’m a trouble maker, why am I protecting mom at night when she sleeps.  See I saddle up as close as I can to her at night touching her to make sure no boogeyman gets to her.  Cause you know said boogeyman would have to go through me first.  See, all of this protection as in her bodyguard and I don’t see her complaining about that, right?  I may need to see if I can find that shirt and take care of it this weekend.  I’m just sayin!  If it should disappear no one would ever know… right?  Barks and rolls with puppy laughter.

Okay – Now the Freak is Pushing It

  I am not amused – meows.  There I was minding my own business and that pesky little elf freak jumped on my back.  It wasn’t bad enough that mom dressed me up.  She must think I’m Houdini with these clothes – and trust me friends – she would be so very wrong.

I’m a man cat… a Hemingway if you will.  We don’t do clothes or pesky elves.  Don Juan does realize that my claws are out. now.

I’m putting you on notice freak adventure.  It will be pay back time soon.  This may be the year you go down.

Signed Hemi

Paw Time with Houdini


Barks my friends!  Here’s to another week behind us and a great adventure of the weekend before us!  Last Saturday I went to the spa.  Daddy said that I was so good that I could get a new shirt.  And we all know that clothes are my things.  I love my clothes – I make these t-shirts.  Don’t you think?

Well there we were in the middle of our local pet store and we were going through the t-shirts.  Either I liked them or daddy didn’t and vice versa.  Then we came upon the *perfect* t-shirt.  We both barked – okay maybe dad grunted – and said that was the one.

And you know the answer is always pizza!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Have fun, run in the sun and try to get some lap time on your humans lap.  Now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – have fun!

Paw Time with Houdini


 Barks my friends – we made it to another Friday – YAY!

I have to say score for this little puppy.  Mom went shopping last weekend – we all know how this ends, right?  She told daddy that I needed some new clothes and that someone – looks innocent – was outgrowing some of their t-shirts.  What?!  A dog has to eat, right?  So this is one of my new t-shirts.  Don’t you love it?  Can you read it?  It says, “I flexed and then the sleeves fell off.”  For some reason, daddy thought this shirt was hilarious and I absolutely needed it.  So I guess you can say that daddy was the enabler for mom buying it.  Yep, that’s right.  Daddy was the cause – ha!

Well friends – I hope you get lots of snuggle time this weekend.  I leave you now with Jokes with Daddy –

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I overheard my dad telling mom last night that he was going camping this weekend.  I love camping.  There’s just something about the woods with all of those trees and marking my territory.  I get excited just thinking about it – oops I almost wet myself.  Anyway, I wanted to be ready when my dad got up this morning.  Do you think I’m dressed appropriately for the woods?  Signed Camper in Training

Dear Camper in Training – Oh my friend.  I think you will have  a blast in the woods with all of those trees.  And look at you!  I think you are more than appropriate.  You look like you belong in the woods making trails.  Yes you do.  I hope you have a blast and one thing.  Be careful of the sticks on the ground that wiggle.


Dear Bacon – This  has been a huge day for me!  First I met my new parents who seem pretty cool to tell you the truth.  Then they took me to this awesome store where they had everything… and I do mean everything!  They bought me food and treats and even fitted me for a cute little jacket in case it gets cold outside.  I didn’t think it fit too good in my arms but my humans said that I would grow into it.  Have you ever been to this store that has everything?  Signed Barks and Cuddles

Dear Barks and Cuddles – Look at you!!  Squeals with cuteness.  Never fear, you will grow into your little jacket.  And hey that jacket looks adorable on you.  I just love seeing your little tail peeking out below the bottom – too cute!  And this store you speak of, yes we have one close by the Hotel Thompson.  Mom/dad have taken me in the past as well as Houdini. It has everything that any anipal can imagine.  It’s such a fun place to explore for sure.  Now you take care of yourself little guy and keep us posted on your growing rate.


Dear Bacon – It’s a hard job keeping one’s self in kibbles and treats.  You see I’m a fashion pup model.  I advertise a lot of times for doggy products.  On this date, I was pushing shampoo products as well as supporting dogs who bathe.  Can you believe that there are dogs out there that never take a bath?  The horror in that!  I just can’t imagine not taking care of one’s personal hygiene.  So, I have to ask my friend.  What kind of shampoo do you use?  Signed Pup Model

Dear Pup Model – Now that is a career!  Look at you my friend.  You do have the legs to be an awesome model for sure.  I use a shampoo made specifically for farm anipals.  I know it doesn’t sound wonderful but it’s awesome on my piggy Mohawk and keeps my bristles less irritating to mom’s bare skin around her ankles.  What we do for our humans, right?  You keep on being the star you are sweet friend.  Happy Bubble Bath!


Dear Bacon – I think I’ve made a grave mistake.  You see my dad was taking some medicine and dropped a pill.  I thought it was cool to play with the pill but accidentally swallowed it.  I then saw this snake on the floor and have been holding it for hours watching it to make sure it doesn’t get loose in the hacienda.  The things we do to protect our humans.  Who knows how long this snake has been wiggling around here.  It could have bit someone!  Signed Snake Watcher

Dear Snake Watcher – Oh no my friend!  You might want to not swallow any more pills in the future.  Hopefully this pill will wear off really soon.  I’m not sure what it was – hopefully nothing too much harmful than what it already is.  I mean, catching live snakes in your house – that pill had to be something wicked.  You might just want to go chill for a while.  Perhaps take a nap and it’s okay to let that snake go.  I bet you won’t even find that snake when you wake up.  It’s okay – you’re safe.  Not walk away from the snake and sleep my friend.


Dear Bacon – I don’t get it.  It was raining outside so my dad put my raincoat on before I went outside.  My raincoat is new and I love it because nothing on me gets wet – you can’t see my rain boots underneath it.  Well me and dad are walking outside and people keep looking, pointing and laughing.  I don’t get it.  What’s so funny?  Signed Sluggo

Dear Sluggo – First up, tell me that’s not your name.  Really? Second up, I don’t think they are laughing or pointing at you.  Nope.  No way.  You are way too cute my friend.  I think they are looking, pointing and laughing at your human.  Humans are weird like that.  You just keep on walking and don’t mind them at all.  Just be careful of salt on the streets okay.


❤ Don’t forget my friends to keep emailing me your letters/pictures coming for Dear Bacon submissions.  Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU! ❤

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Dante Alighieri

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:  Dante Alighieri

Age:  9 years young.  My birthday is July 16, 2007

Location:  Coral Gables, Florida

Web/Blog Page:  The Dante Diaries

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  The first time I met HER was pretty scary…SHE made it crystal clear that SHE was only providing a place for me to stay overnight until HER friends could find a home for me. SHE had lost HER darling Desdemona and HER heart was still broken…SHE wasn’t ready to accept another four-legged into HER heart. That heart of HERS was like a rock…scary!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Late that first night when I jumped up onto the sofa next to HER (no dogs allowed except Desdemona) and sat on Desdemona’s pillow, crossed my legs and gave HER my best “Please Love Me” face. I knew it worked when a tear ran down HER cheek and SHE said, “Tomas (that was my puppy name back then), if you’re going to live here with me, we have to change your name…you look like a Dante Aligheri to me”. And from that moment on I was Dante…and I was home!

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   When I snuck into HER home office, jumped on the chair next to HER desk and then over to HER desk to finally climbed up the book shelves to where SHE keeps HER special stuffed animals. When SHE got home, I had them all those special animals piled up in front of the door. To say SHE was upset with me is an understatement…I learned that night the meaning of DoubleGate (my own personal Solitary Confinement area when I misbehave).

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Most humans would say that I have HER wrapped around my paws…but the truth is, I have my Grandma wrapped even tighter than HER! My Grandma cannot resist my “I Love You” Face. Me and my Grandma have a special connection and we do everything together…as Grandma says: What happens at Grandma’s, stays at Grandma’s!

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That I am a Fashionisto. I have a very extensive wardrobe and have honed my strutting abilities to not only catch the eyes of the Chiquitas but also the two-leggeds out there. But, NO, I am NOT a Fashionisto…it’s HER, all HER. SHE just loves it when I am dressed to the nines…so I “allow” HER to buy me all the cool clothes SHE wants…and then listen to HER tell me how cute I look! It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it! Bark Bark Bark!

 

 


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