Dear Bacon

20131208-211816.jpg

Dear Bacon – There is *always* that one friend.  You know the one that ‘dares’ you to do something and says, “What are you afraid”?  Why did I have to fall for it.  Can you tell me that?  And then if that wasn’t bad enough, Ethel has to then photobomb me and take a picture for her Facebook account.  Dude, I long for the days before all of this social media.  Signed Jack

Dear Jack – WOW.  I see that you are in a predicament my friend.  I don’t even know Ethel dared you to do but the how the heck did you get out of that funky position?  Of course, for payback and before she photobombed you all you had to do was lift that left leg in a strategic position and that would smack that smirk right off of her face – snorts.  You know friend, this just screams for payback.  And make it GOOD.  I mean really GOOD.  And then post it on your Facebook account… or perhaps get Christmas cards made.  Now that sounds like a plan of destruction.  Keep me posted with the results and don’t take any more dares anytime soon okay.

Dear Bacon – HA!  This will teach my humans.  I ran away from home and they have yet to find me.  What do you think?  Am I the master of disguises or what?  Signed Hide N Seek Master

Dear Hide N Seek Master – You are the boss my friend.  I had to take several looks myself to see which ‘rock’ was you.  And your parents haven’t found you yet.  That’s so awesome.  Just remember to come out in time for dinner okay.

Dear Bacon – They said I could do and be anything I wanted.  So I decided I wanted to water ski.  And let me tell you something – it is fantastic!  So invigorating.  It makes me feel like I weigh nothing at all.  I highly recommend it my friend.  Signed Weightless

Dear Weightless – You know you have my interest piqued now my friend.  I think I may try this soon… especially since mom/dad are sending me to this awful thing called C.A.M.P.  Stay safe.


20131208-211954.jpg
Dear Bacon – Have you ever just had one of those days that you needed a little something to take the edge off?  This was me last weekend.  I just couldn’t take chasing the postman anymore… or tying up and blaming the cat for everything.  I needed a little liquid refreshment in a place where everyone knew my name and it was a fun place.  And hey, this wine is awesome.  Have you ever felt like this?  Signed Stud at the Bar

Dear Stud at the Bar – Oh yes indeed.  There are days that I feel the world is overcoming me… especially this past weekend.  We could have met up my friend.  Perhaps split a bottle of Francis Ford Coppola wine and whined on each other’s shoulders or downfalls in life in general.  I’m sure it would have been a blast.  Call me next time okay.

Dear Bacon – I’m not sure my son gets the full effect of my look here.  This is my what.do.you.mean.you.want.to.stay.out.all. night.long.partying.look.  Does it work for you?  Do I need to change something for more of an effect?  Any suggestions?  Signed Dad in Charge

Dear Dad in Charge – I think you have the look down pact.  Did you follow it with, “Not while you are living under my roof?” and “While you are living under my roof, you will obey my rules”?  That usually works when my dad uses them on us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson.  Maybe take away his allowance.  That *always* hurts this little oinker where it counts.  Good luck with your son my friend.  Just think of these as his teenage rocky years.


Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send me your letters and pictures to my email address.  🙂

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks my friend.  Hope you had a terrific week. I know last week I showed you a picture of me on mom’s chaise.  This week, I’m attaching a picture of me on dad’s sofa.  I like to take my power naps high up on his pillows.  They are so soft and comfy!

I also wanted to tell you about a new game I’ve learned this week.  It’s called Hide and go Seek.  It’s awesome!  Every night around 8:30-9:00PM, it’s bedtime for us anipals.  Mom tells us to go get settled in our room and she will be in there soon.  Bacon goes like a champ he is.  But me… why?  Why do I need a bedtime?  So I usually just keep hanging out in the living room with dad until mom goes to our room to tuck us in and tell us a story.

Well my new game is not to be caught – barks.  That’s right I said it.  Not be caught and not do what I’m told.  I will hide under the couch or the chaise or on the bottom shelf of the book shelf.  Mom tries to find me.  And then when she sees me, I run to the next spot thus playing hide and go seek.  I mean hey the woman needs her exercise, right?  Then mom does something weird.  When she FINALLY catches me, she fusses at me.  What?  Maybe I don’t want to go to bed – yawns – maybe I’m a big dog now – double yawns.  I don’t need no stinkin’ bedtime.  Passes out asleep before mom can put me in bed…..

Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

Doggy Instructions

 Snorts – you see this is a funny story. There comes a time in a little doggie’s life that he needs a bath.  Some things are instilled in a pet’s mind that he knows what is coming.  This is one of those times.  I got to watch from the sidelines and took some pictures… and of course snorted a couple of times here and there.  You know because of the little guys antics.  He can really be funny when he wants to be.

See first there was the, “Houdini come here it’s bath time.”  As soon as I heard those words, I knew it was on for some fun times.  See, I don’t run from bath time.  I enjoy bath time.  I think it’s fun to stomp my feet and blow bubbles in the water.  Houdini on the other hand, he likes to be a clown.

He ran around the front room hiding.  In fact, you can see him in this picture.  He thinks since you can’t see his face, you can’t see him… regardless of the point that his wahoo is in the air – snorts with piggy laughter.  What a clown huh?

 But it gets better.  I ran into the bathroom where mommy was headed once Houdini was caught.  Once caught, he was fine.  He cuddled and played and licked mommy. That’s when I noticed it in the bathroom.  You are asking what pig – what did you notice?

Look at this bottle and what is marked – here you go:

“Remember to eliminate all escape routes and in advance (a tip: once your pet is slippery wet he or she is suddenly smarter and faster than you are.)”

Oh my goodness – who writes these instructions?  I want to high hoof them – it’s great!  It’s fantastic.  It made me oink!  It made mom oink…. okay maybe laugh or chuckle or maybe snort.

 But all is good afterwards.  Look at the cute little poochie now.  All squeaky clean.  Sparkly if you will.

And if you look a long time at the picture, it starts to look like Houdini is smiling.  So maybe… just maybe… I’m not the only one who enjoys a nice bath.

What do you think?  You think he enjoyed the bath?

Oh and I have to give it to the little guy – excellent choice in hide and go seek.  Butts up anyone?  Snorts with piggy laughter.

Dear Bacon

20140111-200644.jpg

Dear Bacon – Hey there.  Our names are Chill and Squeal.  We are pleased to meet you piggy.  We would love to meet you one day and have some fun. It sounds like we have a lot in common – play, eating, hiding, eating, rolling around, eating, hibernating until Spring, eating.  See, don’t you think?  And don’t worry about Chill’s sharp teeth in his picture.  He doesn’t use them much.  Signed Chill and Squeal

Dear Chill and Squeal – Well don’t ya’ll look like hospitality charm.  I say if you are in the area, check me out.  I’m all for new adventures – especially when eating is involved.  Perhaps we can give the purr things here a run for their money.  Just sayin’.  And what cute little sweaters – adorable!


20140111-200658.jpg

Dear Bacon -ssshh – don’t say a word.  We are playing hide and go seek from the purr things.  I think we found *the* spot.  We have been under here for almost two hours and the purr things haven’t even been in the room.  Awesome huh?  Signed Hide and Seek

Dear Hide and Seek –  Playing with the purr things, huh?  First let me commend you on your hiding spot.  It is most excellent indeed.  Secondly let me tell you something about pesky purr things.  They put you up to hide – are you ready for this? – to get ricd of you.  And to think, they succeeded for two hours in not having you around.  My friends, this calls for payback.  Go hide their kitty boxes.  I dare say *that* would be the ultimate pay back in hide and seek.  And maybe that would teach them not to mess with the dogs!.


20140111-200711.jpg

 Dear Bacon –  There is nothing to do in the winter weather except crawl up in front of the fireplace, don some glasses and read the great American novel.  Here I am reading about Rin-Tin-Tin.  It’s a great read full of adventures that we just can’t do in these cold months ourselves.  What’s your favorite thing to do in the cold months?  Signed Sir Chomps

Dear Sir Chomps –  Awesome my friend.  Reading is a great way to pass the time and live in another place for a while.  These cold months can be so awful and cold.  My favorite thing in the winter is being wrapped in my king sized Egyptian cotton sheet and dreaming of days of warmth and fun in the Spring.  It’s a great way to stay warm..


20140111-200725.jpg

Dear Bacon – You talk about your piggy bed all of the time.  I just wanted to show you mine.  Here I am chilling in the morning after the staff have went to work.  It’s my favorite part of the day.  A great nap followed by a snack following by another nap before the people get home.  You like?  Signed Dog in a Bed

Dear Dog in a Bed –  Hey, you are *MY* kind of friend.  I love me some sleep somewhere comfy and warm.  I say go for it!  And your routine ROCKS!  One can never have too many naps or snacks.


20140111-200805.jpg

Dear Bacon – I just had *that* surgery where the aliens came down and kidnapped my best friends if you know what I mean.  The only great thing is they sent me home all drugged… which I highly recommend.  Thank goodness I read about this procedure from when your Houdini had his so I knew what to expect from the alien invasion.  Dude, those little green guys can be vicious can’t they?  Signed I’m a Happy Dog

Dear I’m a Happy Dog –  Happy huh?  I know that’s the medicine talking pal.  Just think in a couple of days, the aliens will have erased all of this pain and discomfort from your mind.  Until then, enjoy the drugs 🙂

Dear Bacon

20140717-070656-25616520.jpgDear Bacon – sshh be very quiet.  I’m the KING of hide and go seek with the dumb dog.  He *never* looks up.  I could have killed him several times with these massive claws of mine but I didn’t.  I let him live to see another day of how stupid he is.  Meow – just goes to show that the cat is the better breed in the anipal world.  How are you at hide and go seek my friend?  Signed Meows Hanging Tall

Dear Hanging Tall –  I would have to beg the difference with you my friend.  Pigs are pretty smart and intelligent as well.  Believe it or not but we are some of the smartest anipals in the world.  We don’t give away our secrets.  You may feel the need to hang from the doorway in your ‘hiding’ spot.  Keep up your ninja skills because after the pooch see’s this Dear Bacon issue, he will know exactly where you are hiding these days. :).

20140717-070657-25617073.jpg

Dear Bacon –  The humans gave us this great idea.  You see when they go to the doctor – even if it’s for a sore throat – and the doctor tells them to disrobe, they do it without thinking about it because a DOCTOR said to.  So me and my bro thought we can do that too.  We are going to set up shop in the hood and when the ladies come, we are going to do the same thing.  Sweet huh?  Signed Doctors Doogy and Albert

Dear “Doctors Doogy and Albert” –  Oh my piggy heavens!  Really?  One word my friends.  Just word is only needed.  PERVERTS.  P.S.  Stay away from my friends.

.


20140717-070656-25616763.jpgDear Bacon –  Help!  The humans brought this Sir Barks A Lot miniature thing they call a dog into my home.  I have been stuck on this couch forever.  It won’t shut up.  It’s telling ME the rules of MY house.  What the cream cheese?  Make it stop dude.  Please.  Signed Helpless on Vinyl

Dear Helpless on Vinyl –  Not you too my friend?  My humans brought home one as well who likes to demand things.  Rolls piggy eyes.  The safest way to proceed, ignore him.  Hopefully he will go away.  And please come down off of the couch.  Look at yourself.  Cowering down over a pooch of what six pounds.  Oh my goodness – you do live with me!  My grief of torture is also six pounds.  We must unite.  Call me okay.  Maybe we can airmail them somewhere.  Snorts.

20140717-070657-25617522.jpg

.Dear Bacon – I don’t get why some dogs don’t like baths.  I ❤ baths.  When the humans leave for an evening out, the first thing I do is get the water running and add some bubbles.  Then I turn down the lights and jump in.  I know I have at least 2-3 hours before the humans return.  I highly recommend it.  What do you think?  Signed Splish Splash

Dear Splish Splash –  Well I must admit that you look really happy in your fun palace of bubbles.  If that’s what you are into, then I say enjoy buddy.  Everyone needs some way to let go of a little stress.  What are you hurting?  .
