Dear Bacon


Dear Bacon – I love water – I mean I L.O.V.E. water. I love it!

I get in it every chance I get.

Can you tell? LOVE WATER!! This is my happy face!! Signed Waterdog

Dear Waterdog – Nah, I can’t tell. Let me get this straight – you love water? Snort –



Dear Bacon – I love playing hide and go seek out in nature. It’s so much fun! My best place to hide is on a tree that blends in with my fur tones.

Don’t you love playing too?! Signed – Come and Find Me

Dear Come and Find Me – You are good at that game. You know who else is good at hide and go seek? Bashful my pet rock. He hid in the fish tank with the other rocks one afternoon and it took me over an hour to find that little fellow!

I’m glad I did though – he was getting tired of holding his breath. He said he almost drowned! Keep playing my friend!


Dear Bacon – The humans – they think they are so funny. They took me for my spring cut. Just a little off the back they said. This is what I came home with. I’m so embarrassed. What am I to do? Signed Wacky Cut

Dear Wacky Cut – Let’s step back and look at this with a fresh set of new eyes. You can’t change what’s been done and undo it. So, I say wear it with a statement. Make a trend in that neighborhood of yours. Next thing you know, the other dogs might be going to the groomer wanting the ‘Wacky Cut’ look and you’ve started a trend. It is hair and it will grow back.

In the mean time, strut it!


Dear Bacon  – The humans have this table cloth in the kitchen that I just can’t keep off of it. I like to play the game Twister on it. I think it’s a hoot except for left front paw on yellow and left back paw on orange. That kind of gets me all twisted and I go boom.

Have you ever played this game? Signed Kitwister

Dear Kitwister – It looks fun but I’m not sure if I could play or not. You know my pot belly – it gets in the way and I have really short legs. They don’t stretch that far. Especially these days when mom says I’m getting a little fat roll on them. Fat roll – snort – that’s not fat.

That’s just loose skin from hibernating all winter. Play on my kitty friend – twist away!

20130321-223717.jpgDear Bacon – Are you a couch pig? I read where you sit on the sofa with mom at night. That’s one of my favorite past times. It doesn’t have to be night though – I like doing it all through the day. Signed Couch Kitty

Dear Couch Kitty – You know I don’t say this much but you might want to get off of the couch every once in a while. I also ‘run’ through the halls here at the Hotel Thompson before landing on the couch with mom at night. I do a lot of playing around with the purr things here. You might want to try it a couple of times – just sayin’!

Sleepy Bacon


Yep, that’s me.  Right where I usually am – up under mom’s feet.  We pretty much were couch potatoes this weekend.  She slept.  I snored.  She snored.  I slept.  We camped out, watched television, ate and basically did nothing but vegetate. I would call it a perfect weekend.

I think we should start campaign to have a three day weekend and a four day work week.  That way I get mommy longer on the weekend.  Suggestions/ideas?  You?

LONGER WEEKEND!  I’ll start making signs…. after my nap.  Then again, maybe tomorrow.  No need giving up a nice warm spot beside mommy. 🙂

A Weekend of Fun and Relaxation

Have I mentioned lately that I absolutely love it when mommy is home from the worky place?  I love a long weekend where we just crash together.   Sometimes I sleep beside her on the couch while she’s on my laptop writing.  Sometimes I sit right beside her on the couch and watch the boob tube and snort at it making noises and flashing pretty lights.  Regardless, I’m right beside my mommy and that’s all that matters. 

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m at home during the week with dad and it’s all good.  He’s just not the mommy.  Do you know what I mean?  It’s not the same.  He doesn’t talk pig and understand me like she does.  Plus he doesn’t smell like mommy.  That smell makes me all tingly inside.  I’ll tell you a secret just between you and me.  Sometimes when it’s wash day, when mom gets ready for the worky place in the morning she will give me her pajama top to snuggle in for my morning nap time.  I drift right off to nighty night land with that.  Dad gets it later when he does the wash so it’s fresh for her when she gets home.

So now you know.  Dad is the master mind behind the Hotel Thompson.  He runs this place top and bottom and takes care of everything here while mom is at the worky place.  If only he baked cookies during the day, then it would be a perfect place – snort! 

I hope all of you had an awesome weekend.  What did you do?  Where did you go?  What did you watch on television or Netflix?  Do share with this adventurous pig.

Hogs and Kisses – Bacon
