My friends – I’ve thought of something so cool. Today, let’s share some helpful tips. Perhaps there is something that you do to make life easier for you that could make life easier for everyone.
For instance, mom has three magnets on the refrigerator. One is a dog, one is a cat and one is an alligator. Yes you read that right. An alligator – rolls piggy eyes. Mommy couldn’t find a piggy magnet. Too funny that the alligator represents me – snorts. Anyway, they are always kept in the same spot on the fridge. When mom feeds the cats, she takes down the cat one. When she feeds the dog, she takes down the dog one. And then when she feeds moi, she takes down the alligator one. That way, just in case she is running late or sleeping in and daddy has to feed us, he knows which one of us have been fed or not fed. So no more double feeding – darns it.
Another thing mom does at work is that she keeps a shot glass on her desk. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter – not for drinking you funny person. She keeps her staple remover in it. She goes through a LOT of papers and a lot of times has to remove the staples. She removes the staples and then puts them in the shot glass to hold them while she goes through the entire stack of papers. Then all she has to do and toss the contents from the shot glass when she is finished. Something easy that helps her out a bit.
Do ever wonder how daddy is able to do household chores without ‘seeing’? For anyone that has vision problems, these are very helpful tips. Mom taped a toothpick to the washing machine. When daddy does the washing, he feels for the toothpick so he knows how far to turn the dial. Mom also taped a key disc (you know the ones that are colored and are empty in the middle that you put on your keys for coding) to the oven on the “on” button. If daddy wants to cook something in the oven, he feels for the disc and is able to turn the oven on. Mom also put a key disc on the on button of the microwave.
What are some helpful tips that you can share?

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.
Dear 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!.
Dear 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.
Dear 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. .
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!
REMEMBER my friends – Dear Bacon issues can’t happen without YOU. Please remember to email me your picture and letters.

My humans – they can’t be trusted to go out anywhere without getting into some type of trouble. This past weekend, they decided to go out and get Mexican with Nana. Daddy ordered a large soda. This is what they gave him – snorts. Daddy looked at the waiter and said, “I’m sorry. I ordered a large.” Snorts – rolls piggy eyes. Daddy of mine – you are too funny. Can you see the comparison of that drink with his paw? It’s H.U.G.E. Mommy said she has never seen one so big before. Mom and Nana just laughed.
And nope. He didn’t require a refill – snorts.
