National Margarita Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world

February 22nd is National Margarita Day. I absolutely have to report about this day – it’s a must!

It doesn’t matter what kind of Margarita you partake in. Bacons mom likes a Habanero Margarita.  She says it’s cool and refreshing and then has a slight heat when swallowing. Yep that sounds like Bacons mom. Sweet and hot. Chitter Chatter. Don’t tell the oinker I said that.

Enjoy a Margarita today my friends!

Travels in the South

Can you look at that picture and say yummo!?  Mom recently got a coupon – the woman is Queen of coupons here at the Hotel Thompson.  This coupon was buy one 12 piece shrimp and get one for free.  Now mom/dad have gotten these shrimp at a local ‘bar’ restaurant before and they have been awesome.  They usually get them medium extra crispy with a side of blue cheese.  But the restaurant has recently changed their sauces.  The usual sauce esd a light colored less saucy kind of yum.  These were more wet and you could smell the heat before you even bit one. In fact, dad was the one that brought up the smell of the new sauce before mom did.  The restaurant did not tell us about the change in the sauce before we ordered.

These were H.O.T.  Mom/dad ate them but way prefer their old sauce more.  Why do restaurants do this and change a good thing?  They hope this restaurant brings it back or gives the patrons a choice in the future.  But hey, free buffalo shrimp you still can pass up, right?

Paw Time with Houdini

 

This picture tells you absolutely everything you need to know about how hot it is here in the south of Georgia.  The heat index this week has been torturous.  Just moving it seems to make sweat and heat.  Even mom/dad says it is like living in a walk in sauna.  There are *those* peeps that say don’t complain because winter will be here soon.  Then there are *those* peeps like my mom/dad who absolutely love the winter.  Not the ice, snow close down school/businesses cold but the 60’s or 50’s temps outside.  Now that is weather my mom/dad LOVE.  As they peeps say, you can always put on clothes to stay warm but you can’t keep taking off clothes to get cool.  Well you could but dad said you might get arrested outdoors.  Hilarious huh?  Speaking of dad, now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Hope you have a great weekend sweet friends ❤

Dear Bacon

20130531-230700.jpgDear Bacon – Summer really stinks.  It’s totally hot and uncomfortable.  All I can do is stand in front of the fan and let the breeze overtake me.  I just have to do something to cool me down.  Signed Flappy

Dear Flappy – Hey pal, whatever you need to do to keep you cool I say go for it!  Momma is a firm believer in her fan in this hot summer.  Can’t we just skip over that season?  I’m all for it.  Let’s start a petition.  What do you think?


20130531-230632.jpg

Dear Bacon – Hubba hubba little man.  I find you so fascinating.  I can’t believe a pig like you is still single.  What do you say we fix that problem?  Signed I Do

Dear I Do Don’t – Not that I’m totally not appreciative or anything but I’m just not ready to settle down like that.  You’re totally beautiful and I think you will find the perfect pig one day.  Don’t give up my friend.


20130531-230837.jpg

Dear Bacon – You talk about that Houdini at the Hotel Thompson a lot of different times.  I just want you to know that I think I’m more spoiled than he is.  My humans actually dress me up too.  It’s a pain in the rump area but hey it makes them laugh.  You ever think about dressing up?  Signed Prissy

Dear Prissy – First off – you look adorable in your little outfit.  Your face doesn’t *look* like you’re enjoying it but hey if the humans are happy, right?  Second off – Houdini is a fussy little character.  He is strictly a mommy’s boy and I just don’t see him letting me ‘dress’ him.  I on the other hand let mom dress me up from time to time.  Like you said, it makes the humans happy and smile.  That’s our jobs!


20130531-230749.jpgDear Bacon – Have you ever heard of the Red Hat Society?  I’m a member and they have monthly meetings.  I think you need to look it up in your area and do a posting on it.  I think it would be fascinating.  Signed  Fun Times

Dear Fun Times – I’ll do that!  I’ve heard mom talk about it with her friends.  There’s also purple hats, right?  🙂 See, I do pay attention even though sometimes mom doesn’t think so.  You wear that hat with pride and look forward to a posting in the future my friend.

 Barks!  Happy Friday friends.  Hope you have been having an awesome week so far.  It’s down hill from here – I can see the light of the weekend.  Hopefully this weekend I can rest and relax with mom.  Last weekend, I went for my yearly wellness check.  This is me and my doc, Dr. Waggoner.  He’s a pretty cool guy for sure.  He said I was in good health and my weight was great – isn’t that what we all want to hear?  In fact, my weight was actually down a little from last year.  Dad was worried because someone has been giving a few extra treats here/there.  So no worries daddy – bring me some more treats – barks!

Mom said I was her sweet little trooper today.  I got three shots and not one single time did I whimper or cry.  See, I was a big boy ❤  And I don’t have to go back for another year – now *that* is awesome.

Now, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – I know you can’t wait for that.  Have a great weekend dear friends.

Barks!  Oh friends – how was your week?  Mine was just barky wonderful!  I want to show you a new toy that I got last weekend during the great Snowmageddon here in the south.  It’s a Bark’s Woof Beer bottle.  It’s made of hard plastic and has a squeaky toy in the bottom part of the bottle.  It’s the cutest thing and mom/dad fell in love with it when they saw it in the store.  They just knew I would love it – don’t you?

They brought it home and gave it to me.  Oh my doggy heavens!  You should have seen me dragging it around the Hotel Thompson, squeaking and playing with it.  It was a blast!  Mom took this picture of me on the couch.  I actually fell asleep with the bottle in my mouth.  Mom said I couldn’t hold my woof beer.  Barks with piggy laughter!

Have you ever seen such a cute toy?

 Hello sweet friends – Happy 2017!!  Can you believe we finally made it to the new year?  We stayed up a little to watch the fireworks.  We had an awesome seat right in our front room at the Hotel Thompson where we could see out the window.  Some peeps in the hood went crazy – I don’t know how they even had fireworks left for midnight there were so many.  We were all okay as long as mom/dad were in the living room.  And with the noise, we all got to sleep in the big bed with them.  Now that was awesome!

This was one of the pictures that mom took of me and dad on New Years Eve.  Me and dad were having a blast.  I just love sitting behind him on the pillows and looking over his shoulder.  You know – someone has to keep him in line – barks with puppy laughter!

So with the new year comes new Jokes with Daddy – are you looking forward to this?  Today’s Jokes with Daddy is a little special.  You’ll see what I mean.  Have an awesome Friday sweet friends!

Dear Bacon

 Dear Bacon – You know these days there are lots of people knocking on doors, some selling things, some begging for money, etc.  Well, we like to go door to door too.  We think that three great looking dogs can sniff out where food is being cooked and perhaps someone would like to share.  I mean look at our faces, you would, right?  At this particular house we smelled bacon… sorry dude.  And yes, the owner of the home shared some with us.  So you never know who might be knocking at your door.  Signed Three Amigos

Dear Three Amigos – Well that does bring new meaning to door to door.  And that’s awesome that people want to share with you three.  But no bacon here… really.  You might find some kibbles and bits from the little guy here though so come a knocking 🙂  I’ll share.


 Dear Bacon –  Don’t let anyone fool you.  Shaking my head – I fell for it BIG time from my so called doggy friends.  They dared me to bite and chew a ghost pepper.  Why do we take these bets?  Because they make us look big with our friends.  But I’m telling you – it’s not worth it.  That pepper was so hot that all I could do was lay down on a bunch of ice – doesn’t matter that it’s getting cold here.  My entire body was on FIRE.  Shaking my head.  Don’t do it Bacon – never take a dare of this magnitude.  Signed Hot Stuff

Dear Hot Stuff – I will so take your word for it friend.  I will not even look at one of these peppers no way.  And if I even think that it’s hot, I’ll give it to daddy first.  Snorts with piggy laughter.  Yep, that’s exactly what I will do.  Thanks for the heads up – try to cool down.


 Dear Bacon – In every family, there is that one family member that no one can stand.  Go ahead and admit it.  You know it’s true.  When Aunt Edna comes to our house, nobody wants to answer the door.  She’s such a cougar!  And with it being the holidays, you know that family member is coming.  Be prepared.  Signed Home for the Holidays

Dear Home for the Holidays – Oh snaps.  I do know exactly what you mean my friend.  There is one in every family for sure.  I think certain family members coming to stay with you during the holidays should be treated like fish.  After three days, they need to leave STAT.  Be safe and strong during this time.


 Dear Bacon –  My human loves snapping pictures.  I don’t mind for the most part.  It’s only when those times that come on really it’s your quiet time that I complain about.

No one wants to see me drool or for my tongue to be hanging out.  That’s not for pictures.  When will these humans learn?!  Signed Private

Dear Private – I agree with you 100% my friend.  Some things cameras don’t need to catch.  Heck, my mom once took a picture of me using the bathroom.  Really?!

For goodness sake mom!  I say we need to turn the tables on them for a change.  Maybe we should start taking their pictures in these less than pretty pictures.  Come on – let’s take a stand and unite!


Dear Bacon – Sometimes us anipals want to be other things… for instance, I’ve always wanted to be a dinosaur.  I mean think of the possibilities with that, right?  So my human, they new what I wanted and for my birthday they made me a dinosaur.  Can you hear me roaring?  Awesome for me!!  Have you ever wanted to be something else?  Signed Doggysaurus Rex

Dear Doggsaurus Rex – Dude, I say you look magnificent.  Really I do.  And your humans made you what you wanted.  I think that is so cool.  I’ve always wanted to be human.  In some ways, I think I am.  What do you think?


❤ Remember friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to email me your pictures and questions ❤

Hello sweet friends!  We survived it – Halloween is now behind us and gone for another year.  I’m kind of excited about that.  Why?  Because that means Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before you know it.  Now I know we have some stumbling blocks at the end of November – namely that evil Elf on the Shelf here that calls himself Don Juan.  But, we got this my friends.  We can so do this in anticipation of the fat man at Christmas.  Have you gotten your Christmas list started yet?  I’ll tell you a secret – come closer.  Mom/Dad have actually already started.  Can you believe that?  I think both of them are more excited for Christmas this year than I have seen them in a very long time.

So friends – I hope you have a wonderful weekend – we plan to run errands here this weekend.  And we all know what that means — mom’s lap won’t be here.  But don’t worry – I will get my lap time.  I’m a Yorkie.  I demand it – barks to you!!

Barks my friends!  I’m still looking for the *perfect* costume for Halloween.  Since we have been watching a lot of football lately, I thought I could be a quarterback so I dressed up in my football jersey – it comes with shoulder and back pads.  What do you think?  You think coach will call me in to play?  I’ve been know to run around the Hotel Thompson with my football and mom/dad can’t catch me at all.  I may be small but I got me some good legs.

How has your week been?  Last weekend, us anipals had mom/dad all weekend.  We never let them leave the Hotel Thompson – not even once.  I guess it helps that Bacon hid mom’s Jeep keys – barks with puppy laughter.  So this weekend, mom/dad have a LOT of errands to run around and get done.  It kind of stinks but we all look on the bright side knowing that mom will pick us all up something special from the market.  That we can’t wait for!   So do you have anything planned for this weekend?

I leave you now with Jokes from Daddy.  Hope you enjoy sweet friends!
