Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I can explain.  Really I can.  You see, I was really helping my mom out. She kept talking about how much she hated the wallpaper in the hallway.  I just thought I would help her out with it.  You understand, right?  Signed Busted

Dear Busted – I understand completely my friend.  You see, my mom was like that last year about the linoleum in the kitchen.  She talked about how much she hated it – just as imagine your mom did about the wallpaper.  One day, I used my powerful snout and helped pull up a HUGE piece in the middle of the kitchen floor when daddy wasn’t looking.  Like your mom, mine was not too happy with me in the beginning.  But in the end when she had the floor re-done professionally she told me I did a great job in pushing her to get it done.  Give your mom some time.  Surely she will see the bigger picture later and thank you.


Dear Bacon – Have you ever been so tired that you just sleep where you are?  Like in this picture, it just *hit* me out of the blue and I couldn’t move another paw.  I was just tired out.  Signed Balancing Act

Dear Balancing Act – You do have some unique powers there my friend.  I could *never* balance my little piggy body like that and sleep without fear of falling.  Although, I have been known to just tumble over in pure exhaustion… usually after chasing the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson.  Snorts.


Dear Bacon – My humans are crazy.  You don’t believe me?  Look at this outfit.  Have you ever seen something so outrageously stupid?  I’m so embarrassed.  A onesie maybe – but this covering my head/ears… help.  Signed Help Me

Dear Help Me – I get it.  I really do.  One or the other – not both in the same outfit.  But you know in a way, you kind of remind me of a giraffe.  Not that I’m hating on you.  I think it’s kind of adorable.  Maybe safe the outfit for Halloween – it’s not too far away.  Yes I think that is it.  Use that outfit to your advantage for Halloween.  Stay cool my friend and have fun.

.


Dear Bacon – OMD!  Every time I get in the car with my human dad, this is the look I get on my face.  You gotta help me pig.  My dad thinks he is the all time best driver in the world and wants to drive Nascar.  I’m telling you, you are safer in the streets than on the sidewalks with him coming down the road.  Help me!  Signed Frozen in Shock

Dear Frozen in Shock – Dude, your dad has got to be a really bad driver with that look of fear on your face.  Are you sure he wasn’t like doing a movie or something.  Priceless my friend – just priceless.  Maybe you should hide his keys next time.  Maybe you should beg your mother to drive instead.  Maybe you should say you didn’t feel up to a drive and stay home.  I know I would if my mom drove like your dad – snorts with piggy laughter.  But if you must go, buckle up and close your eyes tight.  Stay safe!


Dear Bacon –  Shaking doggy head.  I didn’t think I would end up like this but I have.  I needed to make some extra money to keep me in treats.  So, I did what every respectful dog would do. – I started a babysitting job.  I have sunk so low.  Five purr things a day – five days a week.  They are wearing me out!  They think I’m their own personal jungle gym.  Any suggestions?  Signed Sit for You

Dear Sit for You – How about a game of hide and go seek… of course inside so the little tykes can’t get into much trouble.  That way, they are off of you and hiding – hopefully for hours – snorts with piggy laughter.  Have fun my friend!


REMEMBER FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send your letters and pictures to me at my email. 🙂

Paw Time with Houdini

Hello my sweet friends.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  I know we did here at the Hotel Thompson.  Heck, it was just plain awesome having mom home from the worky place.  Did we eat too much here?  Barks!  Nah – do you believe that?  It was like an all day food paradise.  We had a blast!

And today – what do we have planned for today?  Aaww – I have plans for me – for Petsmart.  All of those toys – All of that food – All of those treats.

I think I can get mom to go… I think.  I’ve left so many notes laying around the Hotel Thompson.  I even hid all of my food and clothes to make her think that I have nothing left.  That way, she thinks I need everything STAT.

And the other anipals, they gave me their lists of what they want and need.  So, I’m good.  I think they are going to persuade mom/dad too of a much needed trip to our toy store… I mean Petsmart.  Wish us luck my friends.

Oh and to keep you held over, mom/dad did buy me a toy a couple of weeks ago.  Oh my dog!!  Mom says that I might love that toy a little much.  What do you think?


Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

Paw Time with Houdini

 

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!

Happy Birthday!

Today has been an important date all around – especially here at the Hotel Thompson!  You do realize what a huge fanatic my mom is about the mouse that wears the white gloves?  I mean, it’s bad enough that there are Mickey Mouse shapes across the facial boards of the Hotel Thompson… let alone the mouse is somehow someway in every room… and mom even has a tattoo of the fellow – shocker huh?  I think you can say that she’s serious about Mickey.

Can you believe that November 18, 1928, Mickey Mouse made his debut into entertainment.  He wasn’t originally known as Mickey Mouse.  Did you know that?  His first mark into history came in Steamboat Willie as Mortimer Mouse.  They changed his name shortly thereafter – good thing too, huh?

In 1929, they came out with a short called The Opry House.  This is when the mouse got his famous white gloves for his outfit.

.

And, did you know that Walt Disney himself did the voice of Mickey Mouse up until 1946?

And, the most important thing I found that I *know* mom is going to have a fit about.. there’s actually a Mickey Mouse cocktail.  It’s made with tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco and a lime wedge.  I guess it could be a grown up version by adding Vodka.

So, let’s all wish mom’s little idol a Happy Birthday!!

Paw Time with Houdini

WHO do I need to talk to my friends?  This weather is horrible.  It has been raining so much that I’m not sure which of us is more done with, me, mom, dad or Bacon.  And to top it off, it’s cold.  Not freezing cold but chilly willy for this little camper.  I’ll tell you a secret of how cold it is – come closer – some days I don’t even get out of my onesie – that’s how cold it is.  Can you imagine?!

And one night this week, mom came home from the worky place and was cold and tired.  After she put on her onsie, she cuddled up on her chaise to relax.  I drug my lobster bed all the way from my bedroom to the fireplace.  Then I jumped on the chaise with mom to watch the fire.  She laughed cause she was like all of that work and I’m going to sit with mom now?  Nah, I’m a smart doggie.  I was letting the fire from the fireplace take the chill off my bed and make it all nice and toasty for me.  See, who’s the smart one now huh?  After a few minutes, I went and got in that toasty bed.  I was so snug and warm!

Hopefully, it’s suppose to be a pretty weekend here – cold but no rain – so maybe I can go out with mom/dad for a ride.  I feel a field trip to the local pet store coming on for me.  I haven’t destroyed any pillows in a while – barks!

Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

Paw Time with Houdini – Spooky Video Attached

Barks my friends!  Another week gone and tomorrow is the BIG day – HALLOWEEN!  We can’t wait.  We are going to celebrate the way mom did when growing up.  We are all going to bundle up in the big bed with popcorn and watch scary movies.  I think we are all excited just to be together.  I’m sure we will all be snoring before the first show ends – barks!

But I did dress up in my costume.  Our local pet store had a dress up party and I went last night.  It was so much fun!  I got to strut myself around in my Captain America outfit and be a Super Hero for a while.  They had puppy treats and treat bags for anipals that I got to bring home.  Score one for the little puppy huh?  This is a picture that mom took of me in my outfit.  If you look closely, I’m smiling and you can see my teeth.  Dad says I’m Captain America but mom says with those two front teeth showing, I could be VAMPIRE Captain America – BARKS!
 Mom/dad say we have lots of errands to do this weekend.  One of those errands they say I have to go with them.  The way they said it, it didn’t sound good.  I’m thinking this weekend might be the V.E.T. thing they keep spelling out around me.  They don’t understand that us anipals know these key important words that they like to spell.  I’m hoping I’m wrong about the V.E.T. but the way daddy keeps saying it with a grin in his voice, I don’t think so.  I’ll keep you posted.

And my friends, I have a special treat for you today.  All of us anipals and even the rock clan have been working on a project to help end 31 Days of Spook.  We put together a little something and we hope that you enjoy it my friends.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – Busted!  But I tell you, I was set up.  Really I was.  You see, I saw the two legged kid in the house outside the other day making what he called mud pies.  I thought why couldn’t I make one?  They look delicious.  And trust me that kid was covered but no he didn’t get into trouble.  I get out there and start making pies and the entire world is coming to an end.  What do you think of that?  Signed Pie Maker

Dear Pie Maker – Personally, I don’t think that is the kind of pies that you eat.  Perhaps you can roll around in it to be cool – my kind has been doing that for years.  But to eat – shakes piggy head no.


  Dear Bacon – The humans left the house – check.  Got my bath in – check.  Got my robe on – check.  Got my snacks – check.  Got the remote – check.  There I was preparing to watch my show on television, America’s Top Bitches, then it happened. The humans came back home early.  What the cream cheese?!  What did they expect I was going to do while they were out – lay on the floor and take a nap?  Signed Comfy

Dear Comfy – I’m with you on that one my friend.  If my humans came home during my show, they would just have to pull up, sit down and shut up until the show was done.  I mean we are talking priorities here.


Dear Bacon – Help!?  My humans they watch Star Wars way too much.  This is how they are dressing me up for Halloween.  Lord help me.  One of my humans will be Darth Vader and the other Luke Skywalker.  Then there’s me in the middle.  The nerve of them to make me go out in this attire!  Signed Princess Leia

Dear Princess Leia – I got a couple of things to say my dear.  First – hubba hubba.  I love that outfit on you – you are gorgeous.  I’m sure the real Princess Leia is full of envy with the way you wear that hair.  Second up – you have to admit that the costumes will be original and that’s awesome.  Just think you will stand out among your peers.  Everyone will want to be you.  And you know for doing this, you will probably get extra treats.  I say wear it with style and look on the bright side you gorgeous babe!


  Dear Bacon – This is how we greet our human when he comes home from work.  This just shows to him what we think of him as royalty by being his welcome committee.  What do you think?  Signed Two Statues

Dear Two Statues – It’s okay my friends.  You can tell me.  You really stay there when he comes home to remind him of the royalty YOU are and that it is feeding time.  It will be our little secret and we won’t tell.  Zip – not a word.  I wish our stairs could support me on them… what am I talking about?  We don’t have stairs – snorts!


Dear Bacon – This photobomb thing has gone too far.  Every time I try to take a picture to post on my Pet Harmony account, this dog jumps in either behind, beside or in front.  What am I to do?  Signed Looking for Love

.

Dear Looking for Love – Shaking piggy head.  You know my friend, brothers/sisters can be a pain in the rump in the house.  Might I suggest you to post HIS picture on Pet Harmony.  If he had a friend, he would surely leave you alone.  That would give you more time to find you a mate.


 

Remember my dear friends that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please keep sending your pictures and letters to my email address.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – Nothing to see here.  Really there’s not.  I was just having a prayer meeting with Mr. Kitty.  That’s all.  Doggy Scouts Honor.  Signed Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Dear Innocent Until Proven Guilty – Oh wow my friend.  How could anyone think anything other than just a prayer meeting was going on in that picture?  I mean Mr. Kitty just would normally be cornered standing up straight with his hands down.  Now to think of though – if it was a prayer meeting, why wasn’t his hands up?  You gotta think about these questions that might come up.  And the look on his face – well that doesn’t say Amen to me.  I’m just telling you like I see it.


 

   Dear Bacon – The humans came home early.  How dare them.  Don’t they know that once the leave for work, this crib is mine for eight hours or more?  Here I was taking a little dip in the inside pool.  They walked in like I was killing the pet bird or something.  Honestly, some people.  If they didn’t want me to swim in the pool, don’t leave the lid up.  Signed Skinny Dipping

Dear Skinny Dipping – Remind me not to get to close to your snuggles when I visit.  I don’t think that contraption is made for your swimming convenience.  I’ve seen what my daddy does in it.  It’s not pretty.  Trust me on that.  Shivers.


 

  Dear Bacon – Can you believe my owner accused me of getting into her so called make up?  I did not touch her war paint.  No I didn’t.  You can’t prove these things.  She didn’t see me in it.  Hhummphh – I think I’ll go take a walk outside now.  Signed Painted Lady

Dear Painted Lady –  Uumm, you might want to rethink your stand on the no touchy of the war paint.  Go look in the mirror.  I think you will ‘see’ what is giving you away.  Although I do like the color of your paws and mouth, it looks like that lipstick didn’t get away.  One shade darker and it would look like a crime scene happened at your crib with you being the victim.  Of course on the other hoof, that would make an awesome Halloween costume.  Crime Scene or Street Walker – you make the call – snorts with piggy laughter.

 


 

 Dear Bacon – This may look like shredded paper all over the floor but it’s not.  I have a perfectly good excuse for this.  You see my humans leave me in the kitchen while they go to make the money to keep me in the life I’ve grown accustomed.  Well, I’ve watched my mom clip her so called coupons all the time.  If you look closer at these papers, they are coupons.  I was just trying to lend a helping paw and help her out.  You know, to give her more time to pet and play with me.  You understand, right?  Signed Coupon Clipper

Dear Coupon Clipper – I give you one for helping and participating in the household budget my friend.  Unfortunately though, I don’t think those coupons will work the way you cut them.  I’m sure your mom understood your willing to help.  Maybe next time, you let her do the clipping with one hand while she pets you with the other.


 

REMEMBER my friends – Dear Bacon can’t help without your participation. Keep sending your letters and pictures to my email address.  Snorts and Oinks!

Dear Bacon

 

Dear Bacon – oh my dogs!  Help me. I’m a big dog. I admit that. But this time of year, will you hold my paw?  The humans here have some scary stuff they are watching on television. They left me to go to the bathroom and kitchen. Shivers. I don’t think I will make it through the month. Signed Shaky in the South

Dear Shaky in the South – I’m sorry my friend. I feel you more than you know. My humans watch this stuff all year long. And trust me. You never get used to it. No way. Might I suggest hiding under some blankets or pillows. Sometimes that works for me.


Dear Bacon – Never trust the humans. I should have known something was up. The master wanted to take me to the park. We didn’t end up at the park. We ended up at the vets office. I swear Ms Vet lady owes me a drink now. Signed Pranked

Dear Pranked – WOW!  The humans can be harsh. I’m sorry pal. I’m sure you will think of a way for pay back. The little guy here has a vets visit in a couple of weeks. I can’t wait to see what my humans do to trick him.


 Dear Bacon – I give up. These mini-me’s own me. There’s no use in fighting them until they leave for college. Any suggestions?  Signed Hands Up

Dear Hands Up – I’ve seen that look before on my moms face. When she gets it, she hangs out in a bubble bath in my bathroom. I don’t see why that couldn’t work for you. You could just lock the door – no bubble bath necessary. I wish you luck my friend.

.


Dear Bacon – My Halloween costume is ready. What do you think?  Meows. Signed Tuna

.

Dear Tuna – I love the way you think my friend. I think I could use that costume too.  Bravo on your creativity!

.

.


 

Dear Bacon – What?  Have you never seen a dog with his teddy bear before in the car?  We were on a road trip to visit family. I was cool with that as long as I had my teddy. He takes away all of the bad things. Do you have a teddy?  Signed Friends

Dear Friends – YES!  I have a teddy. Well, he’s not actually a teddy bear but a stuffed possum with a long tail. He is my bestie and sleeps with me. He taught me how to play dead. I agree that our buddies are awesome to have. Enjoy and take care of each other.


REMEMBER friends.  Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send me your pictures and questions via email.
