Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I don’t understand.  I think I need help.  You see.  Every time I smile, my eyes crossed.  I’ve tried holding my face straight.  I’ve tried closing my eyes and opening them at the last minute.  I’ve tried even holding my breath.  Nothing works.  This is the look I get every single time.  What in the world am I doing wrong?  Can you help?  Signed Happy Cross Eyes.

Dear Happy Cross Eyes – You know my friend, sometimes life throws us twists and turns. It’s how we handle these mountains and curves that makes us who we are.  Instead of dwelling on your look, embrace it my friend.  Not everyone can look as happy as you.  I would market that look – just think of your face and smile on coffee cups, calendars, posters – the possibilities are endless – and so is the money.  Make it work my friend. And do me a favor when you hit it big – remember this little oinker that believed in YOU!


Dear Bacon – Do you need a kiss?  Cause I’m here for YOU my sexy little piggy.  When my human asked me what I wanted to be this year for Halloween, I knew.  A kiss just for YOU.  You help all of these people in the world and I want to help you.  What do you say?  You wanna dress up with me?  Signed Chocolate Kisses

.

Dear Chocolate Kisses – What can I say?  That’s a proposition that I just can’t turn down.  And why would I, right?  So I tell you what I’m going to do.  I’m going to get mommy to dress me up as a giant peanut butter cup … cause you know chocolate and peanut butter go together, right?  I’ll keep you posted on my outfit okay.  Until then, Happy Halloween..


Dear Bacon – There we were hanging out in the house having a great time while the humans were away.  Yaki – he might have drunk too much.  That brother of mine – he can’t hold his milk like he used to do in the old days.  This is how the humans found us.  Of course, they thought exactly what you are thinking, that I was dunking his head in the throne.  Nah, I wouldn’t do that to Yaki.  I was holding his ears back while he was throwing up.  See, I’m the nice guy.  Signed Teri and Yaki

Dear Teri and Yaki – I am shocked and somewhat astonished – perhaps even surprised.  I will admit it.  I did think you were baptizing him in the water.  I was wrong for sure.  That is very nice of you to help your brother out of a bad situation.  I say bravo and well done.  I think you may even get the big brother of the year award..


Dear Bacon – Aaww crappers!  There I was sunning myself in the open air minding my own business. I must have fell asleep.  I was so warm and content.  Then when I woke up, I was stuck on a rock and was in a hard place.  The water had went down and I literally was wobbling there.  The only thing I could move were my feet and head.  I wobbled forward.  I wobbled backwards.  Finally, I rocked enough that I fell into the water.  Trust me – you don’t want to do this.  Signed Wobbles

Dear Wobbles – oh my friend.  I’m so glad you were finally able to wobble off that rock.  I can just imagine how you would feel stuck there.  And you are right – this pot belly does not want to be stuck on a rock and hard place.  Take care my friends.


Dear Bacon – Why do humans want to dress us anipals up this time of the year?  Can you answer that for me please.  I mean I get it that they want to dress up, go door to door and have parties.  But, why us anipals?  Why do we have to get pulled in to their hysteria?  Let us stay at home alone and do our thing.  Cause what the humans don’t understand it that we will party our own way, am I right?  Signed Ted in Disguise

Dear Ted in Disguise – AMEN!  You said it perfectly.  Yes I agree that the humans don’t understand that we will celebrate this Halloween holiday in our own right.  Let them go out and do their thing – we will do our thing.  Take for instance me.  This little oinker has worked all month long on my 31 Days of Spook.  By Halloween, I’m going to be exhausted and barely moving.  When the humans go out for the night, I’m hitting the big bed, turning on the big television, setting the Select Comfort to around 65 and that’s where you will find me snoozing and snoring.  Is it Halloween yet?  Have fun on your night my friend.  And let me tell you something – I think you are dressed up enough with those glasses.  I love them!

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

  Oh my friends.  Every now and then as anipals we get caught with that look.  You know the look of being busted in mid flight – something like being stuck between a rock and hard a place.  You know stuck in the headlights kind of look.  These are all letters this week with that look.  Hope you enjoy.


 Dear Bacon – Help!  I need some solid advice on not getting caught.  I know.  I know.  I can’t help it. My parents went to answer the front door.  I just happened to be sauntering by the kitchen where I smelled something delicious.  I didn’t get busted getting some tasty morsels off the table.  My humans said “this look” is what busted me. What say you?  Can you help me out?  Any tips?  Signed Food Buster

Dear Food Buster – Oh my friend.  I think ALL of us get caught with this look from time to time.  I still say that if the humans didn’t catch you with your paw on the table, how can they incriminate?  I say tell them your stomach rumbled at the time of inquisition.  Yeah, that should work.  No picture – No busted.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it – you should too 🙂

 


 Dear Bacon – There I was safely in the confines of my home snug deep in the ground.  That’s when I heard the biggest commotion.  Two squirrels were fighting and calling each other names that I have *never* heard of right in the middle of broad daylight.  Can you believe that?  Do you ever hear Journalist Rocky the Squirrel get into these kind of confrontations?  Signed In Awe – P.S.  What is a pesky vermin?

Dear In Awe – I say just back down into your home and ignore these fellows.  Apparently they didn’t listen to their parents about respect and fighting.  And Journalist Rocky the Squirrel has never acted with such behavior.  Nothing comes from his treetop home except sweet whistling.  Ask for pesky vermin – don’t you worry about that.  That is something your little cute self is definitely not.  Take care of you!


 Dear Bacon – There I was pondering on my plant, sunning myself, nibbling here and there and trying to blend in with my environment.  I turned around and there was the neighborhood cat.  Oh my lizards – I almost wet myself before going completely still.  I almost became a MEAL – can you believe that?  Thankfully I was blending in or surely that pesky kitty would have taken me home to their master.  Have you ever had a close call?  Signed Feeling Green

Dear Feeling Green – WOW – that was a close call my friend.  I have had a couple of close with calls some big dogs in the neighborhood.  I’m right there with you that they almost made me make water down my leg too.  One can never be too safe.  Be careful my friend!


Dear Bacon – They should tell you before you jump in the water that it is freezing.  Oh my fleas!  What were they thinking?  Bbrrr – It may not be cold outside but jumping in the water first thing in the morning is highly unlikable for me.  I don’t think I’ll ever be able to wizzle again – barks!  Signed Shrunken

Dear Shrunken – Snorts and oinks my friends.  Never fear.  The feeling is only momentary.  Daddy does it all of the time… then again that could account for why mom/dad don’t have kids.  Never fear though – snorts.


 Dear Bacon – Really?  You think you have strange humans that go out unattended and get in trouble?  Mine don’t need to go out at all to get in trouble.  I hope they do realize that this means war in making me look like an idiot.  I think I will strategically place this beak somewhere on my master when he sleeps tonight… perhaps even pulling on the elastic for a certain gotcha is called for.  What do you think?  Signed Chick

Dear Chick – Oh My Piggy Heavens!  Shakes oinker head.  Yes my friend.  I agree wholeheartedly that you do need some payback on this choice of ‘fun’ from your humans.  What were they thinking?  And yes, a pop of the elastic should go far.  Maybe even follow that up with a little something-something in one of their shoes.  I’m just sayin’.  Stay safe my friend.


 

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

Paw Time with Houdini

Hello my friends.  Life at the Hotel Thompson is still exciting and never a dull moment.  I’ve been spending time lately with my cousin Tinkerbell up at Nana’s house.  That has been so much fun!  It’s great to hang around with my own kind and have play dates.  Not that it’s not great here – it is.  But come on, there’s a pig and two purr things here.  I need to be a doggy, let loose and have some barking good time.  When I feel that coming out in me, I beg mom for a play date up at Nana’s.  She has so much stuff to get into to explore. And she has Tinkerbell.  She’s so much fun to play with!

IMG_1719

I wanted to let you know that I’m still dressing up in my clothes.  I LOVE to play dress up.  Really I do.  People don’t get it when I tell them that.  They think I’m joking but I’m not.  Honestly if mom goes into my clothes dresser (yes I have my own), I will follow her to the couch.  I will then jump on the couch and stretch out my front arms so she can dress me.  Then I will even pose like in this Super Bowl party picture.  Cute huh?  And when it’s time to take it off, mom calls me and I hold up my hands.  Honestly.  Even Nana has seen me in action and she couldn’t believe it either.

So what do you think about my first football jersey here?  You can see if you look closely that it even has shoulder pads – hilarious!  And my number on the back is 00 and it says LINEBARKER.  Too much fun huh?  Daddy says it was priceless and I have to agree.  I love this shirt!

Houdini Update

IMG_0739.JPG Happy Friday my friends!!  Didn’t this week seem like the longest week EVER!?  Maybe it was because last week was a short week due to the holiday. I’m not sure but I’m ready for the weekend and some mommy time.  What about you my friends?

I thought I would give you an update on the little guy here – Houdini.  He’s growing like Kudzo – snorts.  I do believe he is a little over 6 pounds now – can you believe that?  Notice this picture to the left of little Hoo-Hoo laying down.

Mommy just loves the way he lays down with his back feet out behind him.  I do that at times as well.  Rolls piggy eyes – she has a fit over us when she sees us like this.  I have to admit that he does kind of look cute.  But don’t let his cuteness fool you.  He does have a mean streak.  You’re saying No Way.  Let me present to you exhibit A.

IMG_0704.JPG

Mouse Girl was minding her own business on the couch.  Houdini thought she needed a massage.  Sweet huh?  Mouse Girl didn’t think so.  She let him do it for a while… and secretly I think she liked it until mom and dad noticed.  Then she started howling like Houdini was killing her.  Really?  MG makes like 3-4 times Houdini’s.  But hey I gotta say – look at Houdini’s tail – Now *that* is the cutest thing I’ve seen in some time.  And when he wags it – OMP!  Mommy says it goes 90 miles per minute.  Reminds me of someone else who knows how to work their tail… looks innocently.

.

IMG_0593.JPG

 And I have to admit that I am so glad that Houdini is here at the Hotel Thompson.  Thank goodness mommy has someone else to dress up other than this piggy now.  This is Houdini in his Thanksgiving pajama onsie.  And nods head yes… that is a teddy bear on his butt.  Shakes piggy head – better him than me – THANK GOODNESS.

Snorts – so there you go for your Houdini update.  He’s growing.  We are all getting used to him more – especially Mouse Girl.  I think she has taken to the little guy and kind of caters to him like he’s her baby.  Sweet huh?
