Dear Bacon – Okay I admit it. I’m in a predicament… some would say stuck between a limb and another limb. I blame it on these pesky squirrels that seem to have taken over my yard. I was
chasing showing one how to get out and he jumped in the tree. I followed. I know you have Journalist Rocky the Squirrel that lives in your backyard. Any suggestions on keeping the little rats squirrels out of my kingdom? Signed Hanging
Dear Hanging – Well you do look kind of uncomfortable there my friend. The first thing is to get to know those squirrels. I assure you they are not as pesky as you think. Really – I assure you. Make friends – you will be surprised what they will do for you think. Journalist Rocky the Squirrel and his clan keep out the other unwanted dogs and purr things from my kingdom 🙂
Dear Bacon – Honestly this is *not* what it looks like. I wasn’t kicking anyone. I wasn’t having a momentarily lapse of judgement. I wasn’t going crazy. You’re going to laugh when I tell you what I was doing. Really – are you ready? I was learning how to swing dance. Yep, swing dance. It works much better with a partner but I was practicing my moves. What do you think about that little pig? Signed Swinger
Dear Swinger – I am highly impressed my friend. Really I am. That is such a hard dance to learn and I’m impressed that you are doing it. If my hips could move like that, I would so join up for lessons with you.
Dear Bacon – I’m sitting in a pan I am. It’s the pan for the dog who is a hog (no offense). He chases me and tries to sting me like a bee. He no eat until he kisses my feet. Signed Seuss Without a Rhyme
Dear Seuss Without a Rhyme – Snorts! No offense taken. I get it. You and the dog are frenemies. You keep your enemies close to you to know what they are up to – usually no good. Instead of sitting in his bowl, perhaps hide that huge bowl. No bowl to fill, no food to eat and you can act all innocent like you don’t know what they are talking about when they ask what happened to his bowl. See where I’m going with this? Cause you know after a while, it’s going to get boring sitting in an empty bowl. Unless nature calls… then you have something to fill.
Dear Bacon – I’m telling you, I’m innocent! I got this pillow off of the master’s bed. He uses it every night and I thought it would help me sleep too. I went to sleep and then the next thing I knew the master was home asking me what I did. Really, I did nothing but sleep. The pillow must have exploded all by itself! Signed Innocent
Dear Innocent – I can see by the look on your face that you are not guilty at all. Nope. That is not the look of guilt. I do believe you. I think you were sleeping and minding your own business. What probably happened is that maybe your inner dog came out while you were sleeping during one of your dreams. I know this first hoof because I have a deviled ham side that comes out from time to time. Shivers – and trust me my friend. He is a little stinker. So, off you go now to explain that to your master. I know he will just have to understand.
Dear Bacon – Oh dear mercy to the heavens. Please help me. My humans have went over the deep end. Signed Fill in for Nicki Minaji
Dear Fill in for Nicki Minaji – Hubba – Hubba. Look at you my sweet friend. I think you got the looks and the skills to pull this off. I wouldn’t be upset with your humans – I would tell them that if they are going to dress you up like Ms. Minaji, then they have to treat you like the star she is!
REMEMBER FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please remember to send me your pictures and letters to my email ❤

Dear Bacon – I’ve made a grave mistake. There was a hole in the back of this contraption. I crawled in and when I did, it shut closed. Now I’m stuck… I feel like a squirrel on display for the world to see. The birds are pointing and laughing at me. What am I to do? Help? Signed Mannequin Squirrel
Dear Mannequin Squirrel – WOW! What can I say? You do look awesome with your mannequin display. I can say perhaps you should enjoy what you can… maybe take a seat and a quick bite of that delightful feed. By the time you get done with your dinner, maybe the owner of the house will see you in your tight spot and help you out. If not, can you jump and push the top off for a quick escape? And don’t worry about the birds pointing and laughing. Might you remind them that you have plenty of food to eat while you wait unlike them – snorts.
Dear Bacon – We like to put the warning out there for the humans. If you cross the metal gates leading into our kingdom, be warned. You will experience a death like no other from the ankles down. We may be small and short but we have sharp teeth like a shark. Just sayin’. Does your little brother do the same? Signed Harley and Davidson
Dear Harley and Davidson – Awesome idea my friends. Truth is in the advertising. If peeps are dumb enough to cross that warning, their ankles deserve what they get. And yes. Houdini has the sharpest teeth that I’ve ever felt. That’s right – I said felt. I feel them when he tries to hang off of my piggy tail and swing back and forth like I’m an amusement park. The little guy has no respect for this pig – he thinks I’m his personal jungle gym.
Dear Bacon – Honestly. I was asleep the entire time that the master was away. Really I was. When I woke up, the front room cushions exploded. I didn’t hear a thing! Exploded I tell you. Of course, I’m getting the blame. But really it wasn’t me. Signed Lab Shredder
Dear Lab Shredder – Darn those dust bunnies for striking again! I believe you my friend. I really do. Dust bunnies sound cute and look kind of cute but all alone they can be little vultures that wreak havoc all over the house blaming us anipals. Shakes and shivers from fear. They can’t be trusted at all. No way! I say you need to hunt them down one by one and take care of them. As far as you getting the blame for this. If it wasn’t on video and there is nothing concrete showing you did it, I say they have to let you walk my friend. No evidence means NOT GUILTY. Lowers my hammer in my court room and says dismissed.
Dear Bacon – It’s really not what it looks like. Me and my friend were playing leap frog. We see frogs do it all of the time and we thought we would try it. We turned on the camera and started. We posted this on Instagram and everyone went crazy saying that we were multi-flying. No honestly we weren’t. We were just playing a game. What do you think? Signed Doris and Rock
Dear Doris and Rock – Snorts with piggy laughter. Whatever you kids are calling it this day, sure. Just be safe my friends.
REMEMBER friends. Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to send me your pictures and questions via email.
