Dear Bacon

20140111-200406.jpg

Dear Bacon – I’m just being friendly.  That’s it.  Really I am.  He looked so lonely in the cage.  I just thought I would pop in to say hey and you know give him a reassuring pat of assurance from me.  That’s it.  Really.  Signed Felix the Friendly Kitty

Dear Felix the Friendly Kitty – Sure buddy.  Whatever you say.  Just remember though that the proof is now in pictures.  That means no mistakes in your friendly ‘pats of assurance’.  Just sayin’ my friend.


 20140111-200419.jpgDear Bacon – I’ve heard you come from a long line of football players.  We know not players per say but footballs themselves – Barks!  Well, we gotta game going in our hood all of the time.  Next time you are in the area, join us.  And don’t worry, we won’t deflate the ball at all.  Signed Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady

 Dear Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady – What guys you are.  Thanks for the invite and I will definitely keep that in mind.  Can’t wait for the football season to start this year!.


 20140111-200430.jpgDear Bacon – There was this pot that mom had on the porch.  She grows beautiful things in it.  So I was thinking that I’m a puppy and maybe for me to grow into something beautiful, I would pot myself.  I jumped in and added water.  Is it working yet?  Signed Puppy Flower

Dear Puppy Flower – I don’t really think that is how it happens my friend.  But on the other hoof, you look really cute in that bucket.  And hey you got a bath out of it too.  I say just be you.  You are going to grow up soon enough.  And remember one final thought buddy.  You are already beautiful.

 .

 20140111-200439.jpgDear Bacon – Sometimes no matter how small you are, one needs to draw the line.  The humans put me in a wine glass.  What.were.they.thinking?  A wine glass.  I’m not a wine glass kind of pup.  I think I’m more of an oversized coffee cup kind of pooch.  What do you think?  Signed Small Barks

Dear Small Barks – I have to say my friend, either way I think you are cute in either a wine glass or a coffee cup.  I think you should play it for everything it’s worth.  Make the humans pay in so many different ways – extra treats, extra puppy chow. .


20140111-200452.jpg

Dear Bacon – I have to say a puppy power nap is sometimes the best thing you can do.  I highly recommend them any time during the day or night.  Take notes from me pal.  Don’t forget your blankie and pillow.  Signed Sleepy Town

Dear Sleepy Town – WOW!  You are the posted child for a puppy power nap my friend.  I love it and trust me.  I am so taking notes!

Dear Bacon

20140111-200253.jpg

Dear Bacon – I gotta share my most funniest thing in the entire house to do.  Hang off of this magical roll of fluff!  Meows – it’s the bestest!  Have you ever tried this?  Signed Kitty Roll

Dear Kitty Roll – Snorts!  Looks down at my pot belly.  Nope.  Can’t say that I’ve ever done that before in my life.  For some reason, I don’t think this pot belly would allow it.  But you are right about one thing my friend.  That is a magical roll for the humans.  They love it!

.


 20140111-200303.jpgDear Bacon – I think everyone should show their colors and heritage.  This is me and my garb.  What do you think?  Signed Scotty

Dear Scotty – Dude, I think you look righteous in your outfit!  In fact, I could say that you rock!  I’ve gotta research my history and see what my ancestry is like.  Of course, whatever I find will look nothing like you.  You are gorgeous!

 ..


20140111-200316.jpg

Dear Bacon – There we were in the parking lot of the local Petsmart.  Mavis bet me that I wouldn’t go in the store.  Well, I showed her.  I went into the store, said hey to the cashier who gave me a biscuit and left.  Easy as pie.  Okay, maybe not.  Maybe I took more than one cookie and maybe I left a little drizzle from the excitement.  Regardless I’m a bad boy.  Signed Bad Boy

Dear Bad Boy – WOW!  So that was you I heard squealing out of the local Petsmart parking lot.  Next time remember – sometimes one has to look like a regular guy to get away.  No speeding my friend.  You may hurt someone..


 20140111-200325.jpgDear Bacon – I’m the top champion of the hide and go seek series in our area.  I thought I would share this picture that made me top dog.  Signed See Me if You Can

Dear See Me if You Can –  Oh my goodness my friend. You are the world’s best at hide and go seek.  I wonder if you can teach me some of your tricks.  They are awesome!

..


20140111-200333.jpg

Dear Bacon – My humans will get pay back from this outrageously stupid shirt they have placed on me.  I am not fat.  I am fluffy.  There is a difference.  Oh wait – is that food I hear hitting my bowl… gotta walk fast to it.  Talk Later.  Signed Puss in Shirt

Dear Puss in Shirt – Oh my.  Fat – nah.  Fluffy – sure.  Houdini goes through that all of time.  Extra fur well it does make you fluffy.  I see that.  Now you enjoying a little too much food – looks down at my pot belly – I can see that too from my prospective.  All of the time.  I say hey if it’s not broken, there’s no need to fix it.  As far as your human goes, pay back can be made… I’m sure you can come up with something.  A strategically placed fur ball in one’s human shoe comes to mind 🙂

Dear Bacon

20131208-170500.jpg

Dear Bacon – You see sometimes when a mommy and daddy get together, something as cute as me comes out between them.  They said that a little stork brought me to them.  I think it’s kind of cool and they look very much in love.  What say you my friend?  Signed Tiny

Dear Tiny – I have to agree 100% my little friend.  You are a special little tyke made up of your mom and dad who look totally in love.  Make them proud and grow up to be a wonderful kitty with lots to give.


20131208-170537.jpg
Dear Bacon – This is my life.  I was raised with these two purr things and they have been so very good to me.  I know I’m not a kitty but does that really have anything to do with the bigger picture when you’re full of love in your life?  Signed Bun Bun

Dear Bun Bun – I think you have it right on target my smart little friend.  As long as there is love, nothing else much matters.  You are one very lucky little fellow.

 


20131208-170608.jpg
Dear Bacon – I just thought I would share my picture with you of me, my brother and dad.  We are little guys.  Sometimes you just need to climb up on pop and let him carry you, right?  I read about your love/hate relationship with your human daddy.  Perhaps you should take our advice and climb on his lap and let him love you for a while?  Signed Koala Travels

Dear Koala Travels – You are so very right my friends.  Sometimes out of the mouth of babes comes the most valuable advice.

I shall take the time today and crawl on dad’s lap for some loving.  I don’t know which one will be more surprised – me, mom or dad!  Snorts.


20131208-170639.jpg

Dear Bacon – Okay I admit it.  I got a little carried away last night when the humans turned in for the night.  Somehow, the Makers Mark liquor came out, it got dressed and I wore a night cap.  I’m not sure what the order was but this is how my humans found me this morning.  Do you think I need help?  Signed Rin Tin Drunk

Dear Rin Tin Drunk – Friend, the first thing in life is admitting you have a problem.  I think we all can figure out which came first… the bottle, the sweater and possibly the night cap.  At least you got out the good stuff in Maker’s Mark – snorts.  Maybe you should contact a DAA (Doggy Alcoholics Anonymous) in your area for a little chat.


Dear Bacon – 20131208-170730.jpgI know you can’t tell from this picture, but I’m the one that runs this house.  Yep, that’s right.  All three pounds of fur reaching up from the pooch – I’m the one in charge here.  What?  You thought it was the barky thing?  Really?  What would give you that idea?  Signed Fluffy

Dear Fluffy – Snorts!  You are small, brave and in charge with a sense of humor.  I love that my little furry purr friend.  I’m a firm believer that if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.  Carry on in charge!

Dear Bacon

20130326-100117.jpg

Dear Bacon – Do you ever just have one of those days that you just can’t wait to fling yourself into your bed, the masters bed or someones bed? It was a long day for me when my master caught me in this picture. It’s hard work protecting the house, sleeping, running and grooming oneself. Signed Tuckered Tom Cat

Dear Tuckered Tom Cat – There’s not much slinging I can do with this pot belly but I have seen mom come home from the worky place and sling herself into her bed. Sometimes the day can be long and stressful. Meditate my friend.


20130326-100126.jpgDear Bacon – There’s nothing like getting up in the morning and doing that first stretch of the day. It helps to set the tone of the day and get all of the muscles waking up. Do you stretch? Signed Stretch Arm Cat

Dear Stretch Arm Cat – You can often find me stretching like that throughout the house. My favorite time is beside mom on the couch. Why? Because she laughs at me and anytime I can make her laugh is a good thing.

She says when I stretch on the couch I make stretchy sounds through my mouth. I can’t help it. It feels totally rad!


20130326-100137.jpg

Dear Bacon – Today Bacon let’s talk about cats and how intelligent *they* are in society. You’re not the only one that is smart. I have a sciene degree in cataology. Notice my theories on the chalk board behind me and take notes my friend. Signed Professor Meow

Dear Professor Meow – I’m impressed with you, your theory and your little bow tie. You go on my feline friend and teach on.

I give you two hooves up (only because if I give you four hooves up I will fall over) for your extended education.


20130326-100158.jpg

Dear Bacon – Jet power – that is where the future is in transportation. My human says it’s the black beans I had for dinner but I’m sticking with jet power! Signed Flying Kitty

Dear Flying Kitty – PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud). I don’t know my friend. I might have to side with your human on this one. I know I myself can relate to those black beans and especially cabbage! Cabbage is *always* the culprit that does ‘jet power’ for me. But it doesn’t matter how much cabbage I eat.

I don’t think there’s enough in this world to make this little miniature pot bellied pig fly! Be safe my friend.


20130326-100208.jpgDear Bacon – It all started with our daily inspirational reading last night. We discussed Moses parting the Red Sea and I was intrigued with the humans. If they can do it, why can’t I? I prayed about it and tried. Well, let’s just say the jump and first step was probably the best being camera worthy. After that, I sunk like the Titanic. Signed Wet Kitty

Dear Wet Kitty – At least you had the faith and attempted. I applaud you for partaking in the daily bread. Keep up the great work and try to stay dry my four legged friend.

Dear Bacon

20130319-114735.jpg

Dear Bacon – They are right when they say the eyes are the first to go. These days, I’m having to wear glasses just to get around the neighborhood.

I know other dogs make fun of me and it kind of hurts my feelings. What should I do? Signed Four Doggy Eyes

Dear Four Doggy Eyes – Hey guy, if it helps you to see I wouldn’t care what other dogs think about it. One day, they are going to experience problems as well. They are being doggy bullies and you know what.

Bullying is totally unacceptable in any form in any way – humans or animals.

Hold your head up high my friend. Wear those great looking glasses with pride!


20130319-114747.jpgDear Bacon – Around these parts, they call me Sheriff Groucho. I love protecting my house and yard wearing my outfit. Sometimes, the humans even walk me through the neighborhood and so I can protect and serve other animals in the hood. It’s what I do. Signed Sheriff Groucho

Dear Sheriff Groucho – Hey, I like the look. I think it’s great that you are taking care of your neighborhood like that. If only other animals great and small would take charge and take back their own neighborhoods, it would be a wonderful place to live. Almost like Mr. Rogers neighborhood. I could see me living there.

Keep up the great work my friend. I think you deserve a pat on the back and a good job well done!


20130319-114802.jpgDear Bacon – You talk about your mommy reading you bedtime stories all of the time. I like to read my own. I especially like Dr Seuss Go Dog Go. Have you read it? Signed Smart Pooch

Dear Smart Pooch – I haven’t heard of that book. I’m going to have to get mom to get a copy so she can read it to me one night. Thanks so much for the suggestion. I love how you hold your book. I only wish my hooves could accomodate that move.


20130319-114824.jpgDear Bacon – You know riding a hog is just not for the humans – no pun intended. Sometimes on nice days outside, I like to jump my bike and ride. I like to feel the wind going over my body.

Do you like to ride? Signed Harley the Frog

Dear Harley the Frog – I like that bike. I absolutely love the color. Your legs are a tad bit longer than mine. I have short legs unfortunately.

It would be fun to feel the wind blowing through my hair though. I may have to see what I can do about that. Keep riding my friend and stay safe.


20130319-114959.jpgDear Bacon – Some days, it doesn’t pay to even get out of bed. On this day in fact, I went from on top of the bed to under the bed. I just passed out and slept until the world was nicer to me. Do you ever have those days? Signed Pooch in Life

Dear Pooch in Life – I do have days where I go back to my bed until I feel better. It’s not every day. It just seems like some days Mother Nature is out to get you and throws lemons at you. Instead of passing it on to the humans, I sleep it off as well. I don’t have the back sleeping going on like you do but it looks comfortable!

Dear Bacon

20130321-223616.jpg

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 –


 

20130321-223628.jpg

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!


20130321-223639.jpg

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!


20130321-223703.jpg

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’!

Dear Bacon

20130323-183547.jpg

Dear Bacon – Why do the humans *insist* on buying these little creatures to ‘entertain’ me? They are not entertainment. They are trespassers in my home. What to do? Signed Friendly eline

Dear Friendly Feline – “Most” of us enjoy those little toys of delight. I myself even like playing with the purr toys here – don’t tell anyone. Just our little secret okay.

Try it – you might like it. Throw that thing around a bit, give it heck.


 

20130323-183607.jpg

Dear Bacon – Do you think my ears are too big for my little body? Signed Did You Hear That?

Dear Did You Hear That? – Of course not little guy – you’re still little. You’re going to grow into them. I think you’re fine!

Don’t let others bring you down.

Love what you got my friend. But hey, if you want a trade. I’ll give you my pot belly for them? Whatdayou think? Snort –


20130323-183954.jpgDear Bacon – You’ve probably heard me outside your window playing in nature in the woods. I play for nuts – you have to look at your retirement and hide those things away for the future. Happy songs! Signed Jammin’ Squrriel

Dear Jammin’ Squirrel – That’s you I’ve heard in the woods behind the house? Play on little man – play on. Awesome sounds you are putting out in nature. I’ll tell mom to throw some extra food out the back door for you.


20130327-122700.jpg

Dear Bacon – I’m the fairy bunny in nature. I pass along all of the pollen that makes the humans go sneeze. Don’t you love my wings? Signed Fairy Bunny

Dear Fairy Bunny – Stop it! See, this is why I don’t go out in nature. Can you at least cut back a little on the pollen?

Mommy is going crazy with the sneezes!


20130327-122707.jpgDear Bacon – I read that you get questions all of the time about big ears, big behinney’s, big tum-tums – BUT have you ever gotten one about big feet? Do you think mine are too big? Signed Rabbitsasquatch

Dear Rabbitsasquatch – Compared to other rabbits, nah – you have perfect feet to stomp out those forest fires… I mean to hop everywhere – PLOL. Really, all joking aside. You have perfect feet. Hey pssttt – can you do me a favor? Can you find that bunny fairy that passes out the pollen and you use those feet for me? Smile – please. HA HA HA
