Memorial Day

20130507-222103.jpg

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States. On this day, which occurs every year on the last Monday of May, we remember the men and women who have died while serving our country.

Many people on this day will visit cemeteries and memorials placing an American flag at graves to honor our fallen heroes.

Let’s remember that appreciation is not only one day out of the year – it’s year round.

Thank you to all of those who have died while serving our great country! I think this picture says it all.

Dear Bacon

20140111-200406.jpg

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.


 20140111-200419.jpgDear 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!.


 20140111-200430.jpgDear 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.

 20140111-200439.jpgDear 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.

National Pick Strawberries Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

May 20th is a wonderful glorious day.  It is National Pick Strawberries Day – what a great
day to enjoy.  I know that this is a day that the pig Bacon can wrap those jowls around.  He absolutely LOVES strawberries and that’s a huge understatement.

Today, start a new tradition.  Go find a strawberry field and pick your own strawberries.  Start a family tradition.  I think Bacon’s mom is actually going to go and pick the little fellow a few of his own today. I wonder if they will let Bacon come and pick his own?  Chitter Chatter – that would be a picture for the blog!  Enjoy my friends!

Paw Time with Houdini

See I can be a good boy… most of the time anyway.  But on this particular day, I had the patience of a saint!  Really I did.  Remember last Sunday being Mother’s Day?  Well, the one thing that my mommy doesn’t get a lot of is sleeping in on the weekends.  So Sunday, daddy got all of us up and out of the bedroom so mom could just sleep in.  He fed us all and we tried to stay quiet.  Of course daddy feeding us isn’t the same as mommy feeding us and talking to us.  But we gave her a day.

I sat patiently on daddy and the side of the couch waiting for mom to come out of their bedroom and down the hall.  I was on guard waiting… waiting… and then waiting some more… and then it happened.

Mom came out of the bedroom!

I’m not sure which one of us was more happy.  We barked, grunted and meowed and then dad grunted cause he was happy mommy was finally going to take him out to eat… of course her choice of restaurant for her day.  And then, you know letting those two out together there is going to be some trouble.  Check out the video they made Mother’s Day.  Shaking my head.  Even after almost 30 years, those two are gross.

Happy Mothers Day Moms!!

Today is a wonderful and glorious day – Mother’s Day.  I appreciate my birth mother, Bertha, and I love her very much.  If it wasn’t for her and my dad Champ, I wouldn’t be here, right?  Snorts.  So I’m very thankful for my mother – Happy Mother’s Day mommy Bertha.

 I’m also very thankful for my adopted mother.  Mommy Bertha gave me life but my adopted mom gave me a home full of love.

I’m also very thankful for my nana.  If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have my adopted mommy.  See how these things work?

I am so excited to share this date with you my friends and wish you all a wonderful Mother’s Day filled with love and snuggable hugs.

Trivia Knowledge – did you know that the first Mother’s Day was May 10, 1908 in Philadelphia.  That’s good trivia knowledge that I learned from Journalist Rocky the Squirrel.

So from all of us here at the Hotel Thompson –

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY – WE LOVE YOU!!

Eat What You Want Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world 

 May 11 is Eat What You Want Day. Now, I know that little pig is going to celebrate this date. This is actually something he can wrap those little chompers around!

What would you like to eat today? Health permitting, go ahead and splurge just for today. Tomorrow, it’s back on plan. Eat all of your favorite foods and snacks. It is one single, solitary day in the year to go off of the diet and eat something you really enjoy. I know I will be partaking in extra nuts and seeds for today. I have to keep this trim body intact. Bacon well, he’ll probably eat everything and anything he can get.

National Clean Up Your Room Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world 

May 10th – the perfect holiday for ALL parents far and near.  If you have kids, you can relate  to this National Clean Up Your Room Day.  The kids may think that everything in their ‘organized’ room is treasure and things they will need tomorrow but we all know that plate, one sock, various toys and Lego’s and clothes are things that need to be cleaned up.  Sometimes the mess is so bad that you can’t walk through the room and stuff is packed under the bed, the dresser and the closet is overflowing.  How do these kids live in this mess?!

To mom and dad’s delights everywhere – today is National Clean Up Your Room.  Get out your shovels and pull the truck up to their window.  It’s time for everyone to clean their rooms.  Especially that Bacon, he’s not perfect either.  I took a picture of that little fellows room before his mom got to it when she got home from work.  WOW – that’s all I can say.  I can just imagine the places I could hide some nuts in that room – chitter chatter.

P.S. my friends.  This day also applies to adults.  Kids make sure you check your parents rooms as well.  Fair play is fair play !
