Dear Bacon

20140717-072526-26726630.jpgDear Bacon – All I can say is meow!  What we do for our humans to see the smiles on their faces.  Sometimes a line needs to be drawn.  Me wearing a sock is where that line comes into play.  At least they could have washed the sock first.  Eeow Meow.  Help.  Signed Helpless

Dear Helpless – Let’s look at this in a different way my friend.  Looking at your arms, I don’t see a lot of hair.  Perhaps – and this is stretching it a bit – but perhaps they were thinking of you and your needs.  Perhaps they thought you were cold in this weather?  Yeah, that’s it.  They were trying to comfort you and keep your warm.  Okay, they have a funny way of showing it by using a stinky sock but tell me this.  Did it do the trick?  Are you all snug as a bug and warm in that cocoon?  And hey, you may look like that the little guy from Harry Potter but you do look kind of cute there.  It’s in the eyes my friend.

Dear Bacon –  Can’t stop right now.  I’m playing G-Force on the PlayStation.  You know what G-Force is, right?  It’s a game with guinea pigs that have awesome skills – just like me.  Humans don’t understand the game because well they are not us and us have secrets to the world.  You understand right Bacon?  Signed G-Force in Action

Dear G Force in Action – I understand perfectly my little friend.  We take all of gaming very serious.  You should see me on Mario Brothers or Tetris.  I can do wonders in high scores in these games.  What the humans don’t know won’t hurt them.  I gotta go now.  I’m working on some signs for “BACON FOR PRESIDENT 2016”.  What do you think?  Can us anipals pull together and make this happen?  I think we can.  I *know* we can!

Dear Bacon – I found this wonderful creation in the home the humans live in.  It’s white and very soft.  So soft that I think it needs to go in my pouch.  Have you ever seen this puffy wonder?  Signed Roo with No Clue

Dear Roo with No Clue –  Oh my friend.  That marshmallow white puff is something that the humans hold close to them in their scratch box room.  It’s like sacred to them for something – I’m not sure what though.  If you are going to take it, take it fast before they catch you.  Awesome find!

Dear Bacon –  There I was walking in the jungle, minding my own business and I got a little thirsty.  When what did I see?  I saw this home that some crazy human built in the trees.  I was like WOW that’s fascinating.  So I walked over to it and looked over the edge.  BINGO!  Winner winner this elephant is a winner.  I found a watering hole just for me!  I don’t think they would mind.  Have you ever seen anything like this?  Signed Bingo

Dear Bingo – Awesome find my friend.  I’ve seen this guy on television make these homes in the tree.  I would love to have one.  I’ve been trying to talk my dad into it but somehow he doesn’t think it’s a great idea.  I can’t imagine why it wouldn’t be.  Have fun my friend.  Say hey to the humans for me. .


 

REMEMBER FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without *you*.  Please keep sending your pictures and letters to me via email 🙂

That’s Why I Am How I Am

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
