What Does a Pig Yawning Look Like?

I *know* that this is the question you ask yourself on a daily basis – snorts.  Today I’m here to make that question come true.  I’m going to show you what it looks like when a pig – namely moi – yawns.  Yes I yawn.  I get tired too.  Hey, it’s hard work maintaining this pot belly and this establishment here at the Hotel Thompson.  Okay, without further ado, here you go.  A picture of me yawning.

Notice the technique.  Yes there is a technique my friends.  In this picture, I’m on the sofa with mommy watching television.  I have to stretch my front hooves.  Then my nose goes up, my tongue comes out a little and I yawn.  See, I also have a tongue.  Some people have questioned that – snorts.  And in this picture, you might see a little tooth.  Trust me.  There are more than one.  Please excuse the extra jowls – it’s too hot these days to exercise… except for my jaws when I’m eating – double snorts.  

So there you go.  Now you’ve seen everything… a pig yawning 🙂  You’re welcome.  Have a fabulous day my friends! ❤

Wiggle Your Toes..or Paws…or Hooves Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

 Now friends – this is a holiday that we can ALL be involved in and celebrate.  Today is Wiggle Your Toes Day.  But let us not forget the ones that have paws or hooves.  So we shall change it just a bit to include ALL.

For humans, they cramp their toes into sneakers or Lord forbid heels all day.  Can you imagine that my fellow anipals?  Thankfully, us anipals are smarter than the average human.  We let our paws and hooves be free to wiggle everywhere all day long.  In the grass, in the water, in the sand – it doesn’t matter where.

And did you know that all toes are different in come in different sizes and shapes.  Some humans have less toes and some have more.  Some of us anipals even have webbed paws or toes.  All of us different.  But one thing is sure – We are *all* unique.

Enough With the Spam!

Are you tired of getting all of this Spam lately?  I just can’t take it anymore.  Stomping piggy hooves!!  Enough already – Spam should be outlawed – snorts.

You thought I was talking about email and blog spam?  Silly humans.. of course not.

I’m talking Spam.  Do you know what this stuff is made out of?  Come closer and I’ll whisper it to you – sshh – pork products.  You do realize what that means, right?  The Spam site explains it this way:

Spam is made of two cuts of the same piggy – the shock of that!  It says that the cuts come from (A) the pork shoulder because of its juiciness, tenderness and flavor and (B) the pig’s rear which is surprise – thick and flavorful.  OMP (Oh my pig!)  It’s bad enough that daddy looks at me sometimes feeling my rump wondering how many biscuits I would make.  The nerve!

I have to stop this insanity.  Why does it have to be pig?  Why can’t it be cow?  Heck, why can’t it be tofu?  Yep, I think personally that’s the way to go – tofu.  🙂

Let’s start a campaign now and take a stand – NO SPAM.  But I do have to say thank you to the Spam peeps – I am jucy, tender and flavorful – sticks tongue out!  Happy Friday my friends!

Take Note:  This was all in fun jest.  I’m not dishing the Spam makers or eaters.  I was having fun.

Wiggle Your Toes Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Friends – What a glorious day this is – Wiggle Your Toes Day!  Think about it – whether you have paws, toes, hooves or whatever, sometimes it just feels good to spread those toes and wiggle them.  Let those piggies loose (no offense Bacon).

Humans push their toes in shows or socks all day long.  They are always in a rush and sometimes forget to slow down.  Today, slow down!  Take those toes out of their confinements, wiggle them and let them breathe for a while.

Toes, hooves or paws come in all different sizes and shapes.  Have you wiggled your toes yet today?

One Lovely Blog Award

Squeals with piggy excitement!!  OMP – I got nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by my sweet friends over at Ladybuggz.  What a fantastic way to end the month.  Thank you my sweet friends for thinking of this little oinker and his group of misfit friends

Be sure to check out Ladybuggz when you get a chance and tell them that Bacon sent you.

❤   ❤   ❤   ❤

The rules are as follows:

  1. Post to accept the nomination
  2. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.
  3. List 7 things about yourself.
  4. Link to the blogs you nominate.
  5. Notify the recipients of their award.
  6. Post the rules!

Here are seven things about me:

  1. I’m a miniature pot belly oinker.  But I’m not just any oinker.  I’m talented, write a blog, have my own bedroom with my own television and have my mom wrapped around my  hooves right where I need her.
  2. For years, I wouldn’t go outside to potty because I didn’t like the feel of grass on my hooves.  Nowadays, I’ve gotten used to it although I still hate going outside in the heat.
  3. My favorite snack is Animal Crackers.  I will do anything you want for a few cookies.  Darn this pot belly of mine!
  4. I have a pet rock named Bashful who travels the world and brings home friends each time he returns.  They also live in my bedroom and can be quite loud at times.  Don’t let them fool you.  They are party animals and love to play hide and go seek.
  5. I love to watch television.  I especially like the old school cartoons.  You know the ones like the original Scooby Doo, The Flintstones, The Jetsons – you know the good toons before they went crazy.  Mom can turn my television on and I will watch for horrors.
  6. There is only food at this time that I absolutely can not stand.  What is it?  It is kumquats.  Yucky.  Pooey.  Gross.  Mom gave me one and one of my ears went south and the other went north at the same time.  I spit it out and will not eat them.  In fact, I told mom to try one.  Do you know her ears did the same thing?  Snorts with piggy laughter.
  7. Have you ever heard of cow tipping?  Well mom says that she likes to pig tip me.  Rolls my piggy eyes.  There’s one spot on my side that mom can rub and boom – there I go.  I tip over, kick my hind legs and let mom rub my belly.  What can I say?  I’m easy like that.

Seven Nominations:

Of course, I would like to nominate anyone that doesn’t have this award yet.  If you don’t have it, please feel free to accept this award from my piggy heart.  Other than that, here are my choices:

My awesome friends Kali and Shoko from Canadian Cats

My brother Easy 

My buddies Hailey and Zaphod at the Hailey/Zaphod Chronicles

The Gang at Jan’s Funny Farm

My cousin Sammy at OneSpoiledCat

My nefkitty Purrince Siddhartha Henry

The dear friends Sam and Elsa at Tailsaroundtheranch

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Ava

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this new series!


Name:  AvaIMG_4491

Age:  3

Location:  Georgia

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I couldn’t figure out why they wrapped me in a blankie but then I realized it was cuz it was cold outside and they didn’t want me to get sick.

Web Page:  N/A  (My friends – Ava will be checking in throughout the day for comments/messages.  Please welcome my friend Ava to the blogville world.)

IMG_4492

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  When I stuck my tongue out at my mommy and she let me get away with it.

.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  When my mommy found out I ate poo-poo.  I thought it was chocolate!  Whoops.

.

Who doIMG_4494 you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Both of my mommies.  I’m fortunate to still have my real mommy.  She still tries to clean me.  I let her clean my face but get upset when she tries to clean my belly.  

And my other mommy cause I roll over on my back and she gives me raspberries on my belly.  It tickles and puts me to sleep at the same time.

.

.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Humans think I’m mean – but who could resist this face!?

 Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend Ava – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
