Liebster Award

Happy Piggy Dance – Happy Piggy Dance – Happy Piggy Dance

My brother Easy gave me this award last Monday (06/09/2014).  SQUEAL!  You know awards make a happy piggy dancing all over the place here at the Hotel Thompson.  I ❤ awards almost as much as I ❤ food!  They are so exciting to this little oinker.

Easy  gave me the Liebster Award – awesomesauce!  Here are the rules for the award:

1 – Thank the person who nominated you and link back and recognize their blog in your post.  Got it – Thank you – Thank you – Thank you my brother Easy.

2 – Answer the 10 questions posted by the blogger who nominated you.  See below – oohh squeal – how much fun!

3 – Nominate 10 bloggers for the award.  See below – Personally, I think *everyone* deserves this award!

4 – Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.  See below – so much fun!

Questions for me to Answer:

  1. What was the weirdest thingy you ever ate?  Kumquats.  They are DISGUSTING.  They are sweet and sour at the same time.  I ate one.  One of my ears went in one direction and the other ear went in the opposite direction.  Eeeww
  2. Have you ever slept in a Howl-tel?  Not yet.  But I might get to soon 🙂
  3. Do you have a favorite show in television you could watch forever and ever and ever and ever? I love Green Acres and Gilligan’s Island.  I am constantly watching these two shows on my television in my bedroom.
  4. Have you met a celebrity once in pawson (except yourself in a mirror of course?)  Snorts.  Mom and Dad took me to a fair one time.  We got to meet Spongebob.  It was a snort of a good time! 
  5. Have you ever found a treasure or a thingy that was precious?  My adopted mother.  She’s my treasure that I plan on forever keeping ❤
  6. If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?  That mom and dad were rich and never had to work again.  That way they could stay at home with me all.of.the.time 🙂
  7. Would you rather live in the boondocks or in a big city?  Right now, we live in the burbs so I would have to say boondocks.  The big city is too congested.
  8. What you are doing when you can’t sleep at night?  Watching my television in my bedroom if I can get to the remote or blogging on my laptop.
  9. What’s your favorite song?  The first one that comes in your head now.  Itsy Bitsy Spider – mom sung it to me last night when she put me to bed.
  10. Have you seen a phenomenon once like a total lunar eclipse or a fata morgana with your own eyes?  Nope.  Although I did see a full moon when daddy was cleaning my bedroom yesterday – snorts

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

11 Random Facts About Little Ole Me – Bacon –


  1. I had really long hair for a pig but I’ve recently lost all of my baby fur. It’s finally growing back – thank goodness! It’s at that itchy stage right now so mom puts baby lotion all over me – I love that! 🙂
  2. I have a flat screen television in my room connected to cable, Netflix and DVD. I watch television all of the time. I watch a lot of cartoon classics like The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Scooby Doo. I also like to watch the ‘Who Done It” shows.

  4. Every night after dinner, I sit on the couch and snuggle with mom watching television with her.
  5. When mom tucks me into my bed at night, she *always* reads me a bedtime story.
  6. I asked mom and dad for a pet of my own. We have discussed the possibilities and one has been chosen. It will be posted soon. I absolutely can not wait!
  7. I understand human…. especially when it comes from my mommy. She can tell me to do things and I do. For instance I know: go get ready for bed; go to the bathroom; come with me; go to the kitchen and don’t eat the purr things – that one is really frowned on at the Hotel Thompson – snort LOL
  8. Dad takes care of me during the day at the Hotel Thompson. He provides room service, clean linens and turn down service.
  9. I have the best nana in the entire world! She buys me apples, bananas, animal crackers and carrots. She is wonderful to her grandpig!

  2. What keeps you motivated? This one is easy – food – doesn’t matter what kind. I just about love every thing!

Liebster Blog Award

YAY – the Liebster Blog Award has been given to me by my bud Cocco and his mom Katie ( ) Thanks so very, very much.  I haven’t gotten an award in such a very long time.  At first, I didn’t know what they were and what to do with them.  Now, I do.  😦 I can’t remember which ones I got before.  I was able to find one that I posted on my page from June of last year.  Mom showed me how to post them to my page so now I know *exactly* what to do.  Thanks mom for showing me!  (P.S. If you have sent me an award in the past, please let me know so I can update my awards page – XOXO)

Liebster Blog Award Rules:

Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you –

  • Share five things about yourself and five things about your dogs/pets.  This should be absolutely fun! 

About Bacon:

  1. Since the day I was adopted and came home, I have been my mom’s living alarm clock.  I get her up every morning during the week at 6:30AM so she can feed me first (of course) and then get ready for the worky place.  On the weekends, dad feeds me and I usually get him up around 7:30-8:00AM.  See, I’m good like that to let them sleep later on the weekends 🙂
  2. You know the old saying about “cow tipping” in the south?  Well, mom does a special thing called “pig tipping” to me – snort.  I’m a sucker for a good belly rub.  There’s a certain place on my side that she touches and BOOM the next thing you know I’m falling down and laying on my side.  Mom says it something about hypnotizing me… I think she’s right!
  3. I have my own room at the Hotel Thompson.  It has a great view of the back yard where I can watch nature through the windows, including the rabbits.  I also have my own television in my room that I watch.
  4. Mom tucks me in to bed every night.  Afterwards, we snuggle and she either reads me a bedtime story, we watch a quick cartoon on my television or she sings me to sleep.  Isn’t she the best?
  5. From the moment that I saw my mom, I was hers and hers alone.  We have a very special bond and I will let her do just about anything to me and get away with it.  Sometimes when we look at each other and she talks to me, I really do understand what she is talking about and will do what she asks.   

About Bacon’s mom:

  1. Mom is a huge, I mean HUGE, Disney fan.  Of all of the characters, her favorite is Mickey Mouse and there is something Mickey Mouse in every one of our rooms.  Do you know that she is even has stock in Disney?!  AND, shocker alert! – she even has a tattoo of Mickey on her body somewhere. That’s how huge of a fan she is of Mickey Mouse and Disney.
  2. She smells really good and sometimes puts her lotion on me when she does my deep tissue piggy massage..  aaww those are sweet!
  3. Mommy knows a second language – she speaks pig – snort LOL.
  4. Mommy types and works with numbers all day long.  That’s why when she comes home sometimes she dribbles and is done thinking for the day.  Mom says her brain shuts off by 6:00PM during the week so she can have down time with her baby, me!  And do you know, mom types over a 100 wpm?!  That’s fast.
  5. Mommy’s favorite show on television comes on Wednesday nights and it’s called Ghost Hunters.  We *always* have to watch it after dinner.  We snuggle on the couch together for our popcorn and shiver together at some of the things they find.   
  • Answer five questions from your nominee
  1. What time do you (pets and pet parents) go to sleep?  Mom needs her mental sleep for work and lord knows I need my beauty sleep for taking care of this sweet body – snort. Sunday thru Thursday, we usually start our bedtime routine at 9:00PM.  Friday and Saturday nights, we get to stay up as late as we want to due to the weekend – oh yeah!  Shake your pig tail.  Do a little dance. 
  2. What is your all time favorite snack?  It’s so hard to pick just one cause I have so many.  But, I guess I would have to go with an apple.  Doesn’t matter what kind – I love them ALL!
  3. If you had one week to spend anywhere in the world, where would you go?  Of course wherever Miss Piggy is!  That is some pig – hubba hubba
  4. Lake or ocean?  Ocean – but not too deep.  I’m afraid of sharks.
  5. Is blogging your full-time “profession” or part-time hobby?  Well, my full time profession is being, let me get this straight what my mom calls me – “the cutest little piggy in the entire world” snort.  So my blogging comes as part time or whenever I can bump mom’s laptop away from her.  Usually at night.
  • Ask five new questions to your nominated bloggers
  1. How long have you lived with your adopted peeps?
  2. What is your favorite commercial on television at this time?
  3. Do you have siblings at the house?
  4. Are you inside or outside?
  5. Do you have a favorite holiday?  Why?

Reveal your top five picks (200 readers or less) and let them know by leaving a comment on this blog.  (It’s so hard to only pick 5!)

Okay I can’t count – snort laughing – I had to put 6. 

Copy and paste the award on your blog Done!

Hope that the people you have sent the award to forward it to their five favorite up-and-coming bloggers and keep it going!  Thanks again for all these awards and for reading all our facts of life!
