By the time you read this my friends, mom will be in surgery. They estimate that surgery will last 4 to 4.5 hours. We would appreciate any prayers and well wishes you can send this way. Mom will be home hopefully later this afternoon. We will try to let you know something tomorrow on her condition. Thanks sweet friends ❤
This is a very important date to remember all of the lost animals that didn’t find their forever homes. Each year, animals are euthanized because they are unwanted.
Today, let’s light a candle and keep it going to remember them. It takes all of us to do our part in making sure animals get as much love as they need and find their forever parents. Did you adopt your current anipal into their forever home or did they adopt YOU? Maybe today, lean a paw at your local shelter and/or make a donation to help.
Hold your babies tight today and say a little prayer my friends. Continue the light and be their voice! It takes all of us doing our part. Thanks my friends!
Dear Bacon – Oh dude! What a game that Super Bowl was over the weekend. OMD! I dressed up in a disguise – you know like from the Super Bowl commercial – and was able to get a ticket to see football up front and personal. Cats against horses – you know those Broncos were going to win – Go Peyton Manning! What did you think of the game bro? Signed Mr. Waddles
Dear Mr. Waddles – Love your disguise. I can see how you got in to see the game in person. And what a game it was! I was sitting on the edge of my chaise the entire night rooting for the Broncos. I’m not sure who was happier – me or dad when they won! Heck, I jumped on the internet and went ahead and bought dad a Super Bowl 50 Bronco hat – of course with his credit card – snorts with piggy laughter.
Dear Bacon – Dude, you have never experienced life until you stretch out in a hammock and just relax the day away. In fact, I think your humans should buy you a piggy hammock. I bet you would enjoy it. Signed Swinger
Dear Swinger – WOW – you do look really comfy there my friend. I’m thinking that this Spring/Summer here at the Hotel Thompson, mom/dad might just need to get me a hammock for my magical backyard. They can put it on the back deck so I can over look new discoveries. Thanks for the heads up my friend. Keep on swinging!
Dear Bacon – I think I partied way too much during the Super Bowl game. I remember eating some snacks. I remember chugging some beer after playing beer pong. That’s it. Afterwards, the next morning I woke up with a cold one still in my paws. Shaking my doggy head – I gotta quit partying like this. Signed Born to be Wild
Dear Born to be Wild – Dude, when you stop remembering your actions from the night before, it’s way past time to stop drinking. Just be lucky you didn’t wake up with someone else in your bed. Oh my – can you imagine that? Shaking my piggy head. Safety first my friend. You might need to reach out to DAA (Doggy Alcoholics Anonymous). I’m sure they can help you.
Dear Bacon – OMD OMD OMD. Sometimes this little red light laser thingy gets the cats going on here at my crib. But tonight, that crazy red light kept popping up on the ceiling in my kitchen. I couldn’t have that unidentified red light breaching my food. So I did what any dog would do, I jumped up at it to catch and destroy the red light. I must have caught it because it went away. Have you ever seen this red light? Signed White Dogs Can Jump
Dear White Dogs Can Jump – Look at you my friend! I’d say you took care of that red dot. I’ve seen it before too here at the Hotel Thompson. It’s very mysterious when it shows up and then disappears for what seems like weeks. Do you think it’s an alien trying to impersonate us anipals? It’s so weird!
Dear Bacon – A gal can only take so much from her man. Mr. Endless Nagging kept going on and on about such nonsense – I couldn’t take it anymore and lost myself in the moment. I don’t think he will bother me for a while – do you? Signed That’ll Teach You
Dear That’ll Teach You – Heck woman – it taught me not to nag you – snorts with piggy laughter. Whatever happened to if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all? Cause, trust me your man needs to learn that little tidbit of information. And hey – you got a great right by the looks of it.
REMEMBER MY FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Remember to send me your letters and pictures to my email.
Oh heavens me – if it’s not my daddy doing something crazy then it’s my mom. My mom sent me this picture a while ago on my iPad. She said she had a “Bright Idea”. Shakes piggy head. Yeah she has something… C.R.A.Z.Y. seems to come to mind.
She saw this ‘light bulb’ in the store the other day and just had to have it. She told daddy that she wanted to bring it to her worky place so when she had ‘bright ideas’ she could turn it on to show the world. She has it on her desk and peeps play with it all of the time.
Please help me. My humans seem to be crazy. In the Hotel Thompson, it’s hard saying that you are the sane one – and your an oinker! Piggy laughing all over the floor.
Bedtime at the Hotel Thompson is really a good time for me. You’re probably thinking, “What is that pig talking about now?” You see, I’m a kid at heart but when it comes to bedtime mommy makes it fun. Therefore, I don’t mind going to bed. Does that make sense now to you? No? Okay, here’s the scoop.
When mommy tells me it’s bedtime and to go get ready for bed, I usually jump off of the sofa where I’ve been sitting with her and stumble down the hall to my bedroom. I do my business on my wizzy pad, yawn a couple of times and jump in bed. Then mom comes in, tucks me in and reads me a story until I fall asleep. See picture to the left – that’s me all smiling from my bedtime story. And yes, that’s my favorite king size Egyptian cotton sheet. I ❤ that sheet!
Then after I’m asleep, sometimes mom goes into the connecting room to my bedroom. She turns on her little pink light and keeps the door open so she can see me. And yes I said pink light – snorts. She likes the ‘lightness’ of the lamp and you know the full light would wake this little oinker. Then she starts her writing. Now, when she does this you would think that it would wake me up but it doesn’t. It’s kind of like when humans fall asleep with the fan on in their bedroom. It’s what they call ‘white noise’ and helps you sleep. And if mom is working up a storm, the tap-tap-tap of the keyboard is like this ‘white noise’ to me. It kind of comforts me. For you to experience it this ‘white noise’, I had mom record it for you. Tell me what you think. Is it comforting to you?
Are we the only ones at the Hotel Thompson who feel like we are playing catch up due to the holidays? It seems like mom takes two steps forward and three steps backwards every day in trying to stay ahead of the game. And well me, I have great thoughts to share with all of you my friends but it is cold! This little piggy just doesn’t do cold very well.
Around the holidays, my cousin Sammy at http://onespoiledcat.wordpress.com/ sent me the most awesome gift. A piggy night light! And you know what, I didn’t have one. It is wonderful in the middle of the night helping me go to me wee-wee pad in my bedroom. I absolutely love it. It fits just right in my room that mom/dad have been painting. Do you notice the color? Barnyard red is what mom called it. I’m not sure what she is trying to tell me. You?
Thank you my dear sweet Cousin for the piggy night light – I love it!!
