Dear Bacon – Who says that humans get to have all of the fun? Us anipals can appreciate a good movie too. For instance, one of the best movies ever made – can you guess it? Star Wars of course! I mean come on piggy – don’t you love it? The lights, the action, the fights, marrying Hans Solo – what is there not to like?! What do you think about the movie? And what is your favorite movie. You can tell me. Signed Princess Leia Kitty
Dear Princess Leia Kitty – Well I can see my friend from your outfit that you really, REALLY like to get into your character and enjoy your movies. I’m piggy enough to admit that I’ve never watched any of the Star Wars movies. Now before you hiss too loudly, remember I’m only 4.5. My dad hasn’t introduced me yet. But I can guarantee you that after I read him your letter, he will. Lucky me.
My favorite movie? Of course Charlotte’s Web. What’s not to like? Snorts and oinks!
Dear Bacon – I know you have a pesky cat at the Hotel Thompson. I have one here too. Shaking my head. Why are cats so evil? They say their misunderstood. Barks – as if. They have the humans completed snowed – completely! Us anipals know the truth. You see, our humans were at work. The pesky fur ball got onto the coffee table, looked at me and started to push the bowl of flowers towards the end of the table. I was like NO! – but of course why listen to me – I’m just the dog as he puts it. As he knocked the bowl off the table, I couldn’t help it with my expression and of course the turd took my picture. Guess who got blamed for it? Yep, moi. Because we all know the cute little kitty would never do such a thing. Help me my friend. Signed OMD!
Dear OMD! – That pesky no good for nothing flea bag! Yes I understand your situation completely. Hemi here thinks he is the master and does things very similar. Like smacking me hard on the fanny when no one is looking and when I try to take a nip at him squealing to the high heavens. Heck, I wasn’t going to eat him – I was cleaning him… yeah that’s the story. So you see, I know your pain. I think perhaps your little friend should have some payback. Call me – I’m sure we can come up with something like honey or peanut butter accidentally of course being left out for him to be covered in… or maybe a swift bath in the toilet. What? I would never hurt kitty – nope not at all 🙂
Dear Bacon – We have this cool thing in our hood called doggy daycare. It is like the total bomb in the summer! The bus comes to our house, picks us up and takes us on field trips and play dates and the doggy facility. OMD! I so highly recommend this. We go twice a week and this is our picture from the bus – it’s so cool. This was our “we aren’t doing anything-sweet-and-innocent” looks on the way home. Dude, you gotta check it out and see if they have one in your hood. Signed Summer Fun
Dear Summer Fun – Oh my piggy heavens! That sounds like so much fun for sure! You get out, your humans get a break and you make lots of friends and see things all over. Oh my gosh! I’m so green with jealous. I gotta check this out. Thanks my friends for letting me know of this awesome experience. I wanna go on field trips too!
Dear Bacon – We were set up! We found several notes in the woods saying there was going to be a party here at the house and that cover charge was a buck. We came but we were set up – there was no party! The room was dark and no one was at home. What a joke! We were hoping for a great time and a full keg. Should we stand here until someone comes home? Signed Buck Party
Dear Buck Party – OMP! The cover charge was a buck? Shaking my piggy head. Oh my friends – you were definitely set up on this one. I’m so sorry but in a way you have to admit it was kind of funny. Should you stand there until the family comes back? Probably not. I wouldn’t want to see what they have in store for you if you do. I say chalk this one up to experience and keep tracking the woods to see if the familiar smell of the person that set you comes back.
Take care my friends.
Remember friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to email me your letters and pictures.

Let me introduce you to the cute little poochie in the picture. This is Tinkerbell. She is Nana’s doggy. Gorgeous and cute huh? She weighs around 9-10 pounds. Maybe just as spoiled as us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson – snorts. And of course you see Houdini in the picture to the left. Just goes to show you exactly how small the little tyke really is.
This picture was taken by mommy at Nana’s house. We all take turns going up at Nana’s and spending the day – kind of like Nana Daycare 🙂 We all ❤ it. It’s so much fun. We get to run and play with Tinkerbell and spend time with Nana.
The past couple of times that Houdini has been though something weird has happened. Calm down – no need to call the authorities yet. You see, when Houdini comes home he is worn out! I mean so much that he walks in, kisses mom and dad hello, gives us anipals high fives and then crashes HARD. You don’t believe me? Look at this picture. Notice the legs in front. They are standing straight out! He is that tired!
And talk about abuse and being unloved. Look at that bed he is made to sleep in and all of those minions there that he dragged to his bed to protect him at night. So abused.
So tell me my friends. What is going on at Nana’s? When mom asked Nana do you know what she told her? “What happens at Nana’s, stays at Nana’s” – snorts and rolls with laughing. We are not saying a word!

Rolls piggy eyes now. Yep – you read it right – doggy daycare. Little Man Houdini has went to doggy daycare today at Nana’s. Can you believe that? Does it sound insane? What’s even more funny you might ask? I think the little tyke was looking forward to going to Nana’s.
But he’s not just going to Nana’s to hang out for doggy daycare. Oh no. Nana is having the groomer come out today to her house to groom her dog as well as give Houdini his first groom. WOW – does that not show you how fast the little guy is growing up? His first official spa day. Shakes piggy head.
Here is his before picture to the left. I’ll have to take one of his after when he gets back home tonight. He is staying the entire day at Nana’s. He may be excited to be at Nana’s but I’ll tell you the truth. Me and dad are glad to have the Hotel Thompson to ourselves for some manly bonding time. Bring on the football and snacks!

Just the facts little guy. Nothing but the facts. We’ve been watching too many repeats of the movies Men in Black. Don’t ask me which is which. We just like to dress like Kay and Jay. You know, just for fun and giggles. The neighborhood doesn’t know how to act when we roll into it – bark. What do you think? Do you like to dress up like any of your favorite guys? Signed Kay/Jay
Dear Kay and Jay,
Oh dudes – I love the look! That is so neat. I’ve seen those movies and ya’ll kind of look just like the two. I think it’s the ties and sunglasses. I would love to roam around in my costume too. I secretly want to be a piggy super hero. I keep asking mom to make me a cape. I know with a cape, this little piggy would have special powers and be able to fly. Stay cool barky things!
This little pup couldn’t take it and fell asleep. When I woke up, there was the hunny jar near me and I was passed out. I don’t know what happened and I don’t know why it’s so funny. The humans keep laughing. Can you explain? Signed Pup Dog
Dear Pup Dog,
Snorts – it is kind of funny little man. Your humans are really playing with you. It’s cute. You need to ask the humans to read you the story of Winnie the Pooh. You look like Pooh. He liked his hunny. No, that’s wrong. He LOVED his hunny. Hey, I would keep the costume for Halloween. You’ll get lots of candy!
It doesn’t matter what kind of cat you are, we love boxes. It’s that simple. We will get in them and play with them. I just wanted to let you know. Signed Kitty Box
Dear Kitty Box,
I’m not hating you on that. I know the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson love to play with their boxes all of the time. Mom/dad area always asking them why buy little purr thing presents when you can just give them the box. Shrugs shoulders. It’s a kitty thing. I completely understand. I tried to do the box thing too. I didn’t get it. I destroyed the box in less than five minutes. Now that’s my fun time! Enjoy the box my friend!
I know the purr things like their boxes buy I prefer daddy’s guitar case. While he plays, I crawl in there and the music puts me to sleep. It’s actually more comfortable than it looks. Does your human have a guitar case for you to try this? Signed Squishy
You do look most uncomfortable. I think I’m going to let you call this one and let you crawl in. Dad does have a couple of cases but looking at this body, there is no way I will fit in there. I don’t care how much I try. Sleep on my friend!
With summer comes doggy camp. I thought I would snap this picture of all of us on the bus headed to camp for the week. It’s a ball! We get to do lots of neat things and have fun. There really isn’t any time to miss the humans. Do you get to go to camp? Signed Campdoggers
That looks like so much fun! As far as I get to camp is when I go to nana’s for a couple of days. She always fattens me up so I can’t oink. 🙂 It’s fun and you know what they say. What happens at nana’s, stays at nana’s! Have fun at camp!
