Pig Squeal – Award!!

I’m totally speechless – which is rare for me. My new friend Liz at nominated me for a Liebster Award. Even though she eats bacon – I can overlook that now – snort. Thanks my friend!! I *love* awards almost as much as I like eating – it’s a close call.

I’m so touched that people find my writings funny and comical at times. I’m just a little oinker trying to find his way through life and make the humans happy.

Blog Award Directions –

1. Thank the Liebster Blog presenter who nominated you and link back to their blog. My friend Liz at You gotta check her out. She has a wicked sense of humor and she’s pretty! I may have a little piggy crush… especially when she scratches behind my ears 🙂

2. Post 11 facts about yourself, answer the 11 questions you were asked and create 11 questions for your nominees. See below 🙂

3. Nominate 11 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed and leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been choosen. See below 🙂

4. Display the Liebster Award logo. See above 🙂


  1. I have my very own pet. His name is Bashful and he’s a pet rock.
  2. I love cheesy puffs. In fact, thanks to my friends at Wise Snacks – they sent me some free coupons.
  3. I eat a mixture of piggy chow and Cheerios every morning for breakfast.
  4. I have been known when I’m extremely tired to ‘fall over’ while looking at you. It’s a hard life being a pig!
  5. Sometimes on the weekends, mom fixes me the best omelet with my favorite things – spinach and tomatoes.
  6. I’m scared of nature – shivers. I’m afraid if I go ‘out there’, it might get on me. Yes, I know. I’m a big ole scaredy pig at heart. I’m fine with that.
  7. I watch television. Currently, my favorite thing to watch is Jeopardy. I love the theme music and there’s something about Alex Trebek’s voice that soothes me.
  8. I have a thing about rugs. I don’t like them. I don’t care what they look like. They just get in my way. The world must be cleared of all rugs. I will destroy them, if given the chance, in less than 5 minutes.
  9. There are also two purr things here at the Hotel Thompson. You can often hear mom telling me, “Bacon, don’t eat the kitties”. In turn, you can also hear her telling the kitties, “Hemi/Mouse Girl, don’t eat the Bacon.”
  10. When I’m taking a bath in the tub, I love to blow bubbles in the water with my snout. It amuses me.
  11. I’ve had 1 surgery in my life when I was only 3 weeks old. I don’t remember it and that’s probably a good thing. 🙂


1. If you could create your own planet, what would it look like? It would be shaped like a pig and we would call it Planet Bacon.

2. Who or what inspired you to become a writer? A lot of inspiration comes from my mother. She always tells me to let it out and share with the world. I just hope the world is ready for me.

3. If you didn’t have to worry about money, what would you do with your time? I don’t really ‘work’ per say now. Mommy is the one that, pardon the pun – brings home the bacon. She keeps me in the life that I’ve become accustomed to. It would be nice if we could have more time together – perhaps write the great American novel.

4. Name a favorite piece of music and why. I’ve always liked classical music but since adopting Bashful, my pet rock, he has gotten me hooked on Rock music.

5. Which is a worse writerly curse: to not have enough ideas to write or to not have enough time to write. I would have to say not enough time to write. I have so many ideas in my head fighting to come out and play.

6. What is your biggest regret? Right now, it’s not eating the rest of that salad I had for lunch. For the bigger picture, I would say it was going all pig ninja on dad a couple of weeks ago. Every since, he’s been afraid of me. I’m not sure why.

7. What is your biggest accomplishment? Typing with hooves. It took me a while to get used to it but now I fly around that keyboard!

8. Do you like flying on planes? I’ve never done it. I have seen my friend Maxwell on one in a commercial on television. It looks fun, kind of tight, but fun.

9. Which condiment would you take to a deserted island and why. Pickles – I love me some pickles.

10. If a giant pile of snow appeared in front of you, what would you do with it? I’ve heard about that cold stuff but I’ve never seen any in person. I’m guess, knowing me, that I would try to eat it.

11. What’s something you would collectively change about humanity? Pigs are friends not food!




  1. Baths – tubs, shower stall or kitchen sink?
  2. What is your favorite television show?
  3. What is the strangest food you’ve had?
  4. Do you think pigs can fly?
  5. Beach, mountains or somewhere in between?
  6. Do you talk to yourself and if so, do you get answers?
  7. Do you have a routine/schedule?
  8. Are you always late or always early – both?
  9. What is your favorite snack food?
  10. Do you have a pet?
  11. What is your favorite hobby?

HAVE FUN!! And thanks again Liz for the award – XOXO – Bacon

Liebster Award – YAY!


I have been awarded the Liebster Award from my friends Noel the Christmas Cat and the rest of the DogDaz zoo:  Louise, Sofie, Nine, Stella and Mom at – go check them out when you get a chance.  You gotta love their posts!!

They gave me this award last Thursday – sorry for the delay in getting back.  We actually put all laptops and phones up on the fireplace mantel this weekend since mom was home for three days.  We spent quality time together away from gadgets.  It was refreshing.

They left me some questions that I’m to answer.  I’ll then create some questions for my three nominated peeps to answer.  Isn’t this fun!?  It’s a great way to meet new people and learn about them.  I’m so excited! 

1. What is your favorite hiding place?  Well, I use to hide behind the sofa but now that my belly has progressed (yeah I like that), I can’t get back there anymore.  It’s kind of hard to hide something this great.

2. If you could talk to your human for 5 minutes in their language, what would you say?  OOHH, this is good.  I would have to tell mommy how much I love her, how thankful I am that she adopted me and my life at the Hotel Thompson is so blessed.

3. What is your most favorite food?  This is a hard decision.  I like a LOT of food.  I guess my favorite would be watermelon.  I love watermelon.  The rind, the melon and the juice!

4. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?  I would like to step my hooves in the water at Tybee Island.  It’s a dream.  It might happen one day. 

5. Do you have a hero?  Maxwell.  You know, from the Geico commercials.  He is my idol.  He is the most happening pig around.  He’s a movie pigstar!  One day, I will be that famous!

6. Do you have a bed time?  Yep, I have a piggy routine.  Sunday thru Thursday my bedtime is 9:00pm.  Friday and Saturday I get to stay up as late as I want. 

7. What makes you laugh? Anything that makes mommy laugh, makes me laugh.  When she smiles, I smile.

8. What do you do that makes others laugh?  When I fall at moms feet for her to love me and rub my belly.  When I jump on the sofa with mom to watch television.  When I fall asleep when mommy is telling me my bedtime story before bed. 

9. Does anything scare you?  Okay but you can’t tell anyone.  Come closer – I’m afraid of the dark.  Shivers, it’s so dark!

10. Do you know how to dance?  I’ve tried but I keep stepping on moms feet.  Do you know how it feels to have a hoove step on your toes?  Mom says it hurts – snort.

This was fun!  I hope you found out something new and exciting about me.  The three people I would like to know more about are –

Leo at Whitewolf’s Blog at

Pickles at

My questions for you –

  1. What’s the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?
  2. What makes you smile?
  3. What is your favorite quote?
  4. What is your favorite day of the week?
  5. What is your favorite season?
  6. What is your favorite month of the year?
  7. Are you a beach or mountain kind of person?
  8. If you could be any super hero, who would it be?
  9. Are you a dreamer?
  10. Are you a singer, dancer or an actor?

This was so much fun!!  I hope you learned something about me.  HOGS AND KISSES – BACON
