Dear Bacon – I think it’s time for a new couch… AKA a new bed for me. I think I’ve outgrown this one. Can you believe I used to fit perfect… once upon a time? What do you think? Signed Stretch
Dear Stretch – Man, I would kill for those legs. Those are awesome and powerful legs my friend. I think your master might get the hint soon. Keep going to sleep on that couch AKA bed. Sooner or later, he has to take the hint.
Dear Bacon – Come on pig, sing with me, “If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you’re happy and you know it then your life will surely show it, if you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.” Signed Happy Hamster
Dear Happy Hamster – Thanks for the laugh little man. I actually did sing along with you while I was reading it. That’s one way to make a Tuesday much brighter! Carry on and continue.
Dear Bacon – It’ll be fun they said. I could be the first cat in outer space. Not only did the put this ridiculous hat on me, they attached helium balloons. Have you ever seen a cat float with it’s little legs trying to run but you can’t touch the ground? It’s not a funny sight. Signed Walking on Air
Dear Walking on Air – Snorts – I’ll have to remember this for the purr things next birthday party. I have to say that it is really original. I have to wonder. How long did they keep you in that contraption? So funny!
Dear Bacon – All of my life, I’ve been asked the same question. Are you white with black spots or black with white spots. I think this picture finally gives you the answer to that question. What do you think? Signed Spots
Dear Spots – Awesome picture my friend! I guess you’re white with black spots then!

For our movie night last night, we watched a special on television about miniature pot bellied pigs. It was fantastic! We learned exciting things. I thought I would share some with you.
Did you know that miniature pigs were first introduced into the United States in the 1980’s? See, we haven’t been here that long.
Did you know that the standards for a miniature pot bellied pig for a full peidgreed are: after fully grown can not be more than 15 inches tall and has to be under 55 pounds. I am classified in this category. I am a miniature pot bellied pig.
Did you know that pigs like to play and blow bubbles in water. As soon as mom and dad saw this in the show, we all started laughing. I’m known for doing this in the tub. I just think its fun and the bubbles around my snout tickle.
Did you know that pigs love to be snuggled. We don’t much like to be picked up. We like for our hooves to touch the floor – we feel safe that way. When I was little, I loved for mom to snuggle me when I was a baby. These days, sometimes I feel like it and will walk into her arms. Most times though, I want the security of the floor beneath my little hooves.
Did you know that piglets are usually adopted out at 12 weeks. However, mom adopted me at a mere 3 weeks. I was what they called a runt. You know “a member of the litter that is smaller or weaker than the others, faces obvious disadvantages in competing with its siblings for survival”. There’s lots of us famous runts out there: Wilbur from Charlotte’s Web; Clifford the Big Red Dog; Cadpig from The Hundred and One Dalmations; Babe; Seabiscuit (a famous racehorse); and Darwin from G-Force.
Mom and dad raised the purr things from three weeks and bottle fed them. They had confidence that they could take care of me as well. I think they did a pretty good job at it, don’t you?
Being adopted so young, I didn’t learn how “to be a pig”. I learned how to be a human. That was my formative time between 3 and 12 weeks. I learned how to act based on mommy and what I saw her do. I guess that’s why I’m so ‘humanized’ if you will. Me and mom have a special bond.
I hope you learned some new things about my breed. Have a great one! XOXO – Bacon
