Dear Bacon – Okay I admit it. I’m in a predicament… some would say stuck between a limb and another limb. I blame it on these pesky squirrels that seem to have taken over my yard. I was
chasing showing one how to get out and he jumped in the tree. I followed. I know you have Journalist Rocky the Squirrel that lives in your backyard. Any suggestions on keeping the little rats squirrels out of my kingdom? Signed Hanging
Dear Hanging – Well you do look kind of uncomfortable there my friend. The first thing is to get to know those squirrels. I assure you they are not as pesky as you think. Really – I assure you. Make friends – you will be surprised what they will do for you think. Journalist Rocky the Squirrel and his clan keep out the other unwanted dogs and purr things from my kingdom 🙂
Dear Bacon – Honestly this is *not* what it looks like. I wasn’t kicking anyone. I wasn’t having a momentarily lapse of judgement. I wasn’t going crazy. You’re going to laugh when I tell you what I was doing. Really – are you ready? I was learning how to swing dance. Yep, swing dance. It works much better with a partner but I was practicing my moves. What do you think about that little pig? Signed Swinger
Dear Swinger – I am highly impressed my friend. Really I am. That is such a hard dance to learn and I’m impressed that you are doing it. If my hips could move like that, I would so join up for lessons with you.
Dear Bacon – I’m sitting in a pan I am. It’s the pan for the dog who is a hog (no offense). He chases me and tries to sting me like a bee. He no eat until he kisses my feet. Signed Seuss Without a Rhyme
Dear Seuss Without a Rhyme – Snorts! No offense taken. I get it. You and the dog are frenemies. You keep your enemies close to you to know what they are up to – usually no good. Instead of sitting in his bowl, perhaps hide that huge bowl. No bowl to fill, no food to eat and you can act all innocent like you don’t know what they are talking about when they ask what happened to his bowl. See where I’m going with this? Cause you know after a while, it’s going to get boring sitting in an empty bowl. Unless nature calls… then you have something to fill.
Dear Bacon – I’m telling you, I’m innocent! I got this pillow off of the master’s bed. He uses it every night and I thought it would help me sleep too. I went to sleep and then the next thing I knew the master was home asking me what I did. Really, I did nothing but sleep. The pillow must have exploded all by itself! Signed Innocent
Dear Innocent – I can see by the look on your face that you are not guilty at all. Nope. That is not the look of guilt. I do believe you. I think you were sleeping and minding your own business. What probably happened is that maybe your inner dog came out while you were sleeping during one of your dreams. I know this first hoof because I have a deviled ham side that comes out from time to time. Shivers – and trust me my friend. He is a little stinker. So, off you go now to explain that to your master. I know he will just have to understand.
Dear Bacon – Oh dear mercy to the heavens. Please help me. My humans have went over the deep end. Signed Fill in for Nicki Minaji
Dear Fill in for Nicki Minaji – Hubba – Hubba. Look at you my sweet friend. I think you got the looks and the skills to pull this off. I wouldn’t be upset with your humans – I would tell them that if they are going to dress you up like Ms. Minaji, then they have to treat you like the star she is!

Dear Bacon – Help! Let alone I had to get a bath. Let alone they wrapped me up like a tight burrito so much so that my tongue hung out. Then the human had to take my picture. Really? I can’t even fight it I’m wrapped so tight. Any thoughts on how to handle this fiasco? Signed Burrito in Training
Dear Burrito in Training – Let’s look at this on a positive note. Your humans love you so much that they (1) bathed you; (2) wrapped you up to dry you so you wouldn’t get sick in this awful cold weather and then (3) took a pic of you. Sounds to me like they are working hard towards next years Christmas cards. You can never plan too far in advance my friend. So this is what you do. Wait for them to go to sleep – you know the snoring, tongue hanging out and drooling from the mouth. Then take their picture to replace yours. Simple as that. Snorts.
Dear Bacon – I’m not sure about you but us dogs, we can spell. We know exactly what you are spelling when you say V.E.T. I’m not the kind of dog that runs but you spell V.E.T. and I’m gone like the speed of light. Nobody likes those guys at the V.E.T. office – I don’t care how many treats you get. What say you Bacon? Signed G.O.N.E.
Dear G.O.N.E. – I concur. Nobody likes the peeps at the vet’s office. No way! I mean my goodness they think giving you a treat makes up for the violation they give to your captain’s quarters – I don’t think so. I mean heck, at least you can buy me a Mint Julep or something first – snorts with piggy laughter.
Dear Bacon – This should serve the human for leaving their camera phone on last night. I left them a little something to find on their camera roll. What do you think – do I have it or what? Signed Hot for Hollywood
Dear Hot for Hollywood – Oh absolutely my friend. How could anyone resist that cute little face and tongue? I wish I could be a fly on the wall when your human finds that picture on their camera phone. I bet they laugh and then oohh and aaaww for hours!
Dear Bacon – I don’t get it. I live in the south and every time someone new sees me, they say, “Bless his little heart.” I don’t get it. What does that exactly mean. You live in the south – do you get that often? Signed This is My Happy Face
Dear This is My Happy Face – You see here in the south, that is a term of endearment. Peeps often say that for no apparent reason. I’ve heard peeps tell this to babies, older peeps, anipals and to each other. I don’t think they mean anything by it. Nope not at all. How could they? I look at you and see a masculine little guy that is going somewhere in the world. You just accept that term as a compliment, hold your head up high and march right on into 2016!
Dear Bacon – I was asleep – you know taking one of many naps during the day. I had my little hoodie on for some added heat. My human woke me up and said, “Say Cheese?” All my tummy heard was cheese so I stuck my tongue out. Don’t you know that was the moment my mom decided to snap my pic. Why – tell me why – do these humans do this? Signed Sticking Tongue Out
Dear Sticking Tongue Out – Personally I think sometimes the humans try to catch us off guard in an attempt to get an amusing look from us for their cameras. Every once in a while, I let mom *think* she has me and I do something for her amusement. What can I say? It keeps the humans happy therefore we get more treats. I say play it for all its worth my friend. Work it!

Dear Bacon – What the cream cheese is going on here? My master – he gave me this cute little contraption that had me playing with it for hours at a time. Then one day, a crack in its matter happened. The next thing I knew, the toy jumped on my face and wrapped around it. What the heck? Signed Clash of the Toy
Dear Clash of the Toy – Well, on one hoof my friend you look like a character for the new Star Wars movie. 🙂 That’s gotta be kind of creative and fun right there alone. Maybe your owner could take you to opening day and show you off – you would probably get lots of cuddles, pets and perhaps some popcorn? And what do they say… if it fits you must commit – snorts with piggy laughter.
Dear Bacon – I just want to show you that with the presidential elections coming up, I’m putting my paws out for a front man that I can stand beside. Someone that just screams my name. Someone that has maybe a better come over than I do. Someone that you can mention their name by just looking at me. What do you say little pig – can we count on your vote? Signed Make America Great Again
Dear Make America Great Again – You know my friend, I’ve heard of that motto before. Okay maybe not personally but I’ve heard it on presidential breakdowns from the past. For some reason, I just don’t think it means the same as what you are making it out to be. But hey what am I to say, right? When you stand behind your candidate, you really go all out!
Dear Bacon – I am not amused. There i said it. NOT AMUSED. There I was just swimming minding my own business. Believe it or not, I wasn’t even bothering the humans who were by the way in my water. I just kept swimming. Then one of the blokes whose leg I was swimming in/out of had the nerve to reach down and pick me up like I was a mere puppy. For real? Doesn’t he have anything to do besides pick on us little folks? And just as a reminder to him, I will remember his scent. Cause you know when I get bigger, it might be ME picking him UP out of my waters if you know what I mean. Signed Bruce
Dear Bruce – I think I would have passed. I mean really. You are nearly as long as me and way bigger than the little guy here Houdini. And you are right. He was in your waters – in your backyard if you will. He should have known better. Don’t take what he did out on all humans. There are some really good ones out there. You just go and be nice to peeps okay. No hard feelings right?
Dear Bacon – Bath time is always awesome at my crib. I go back and forth in/out of the tub getting all of my minions lined up around the tub. Then my mom gets my bubble bath ready. That’s when I get in the tub and have my meeting with my minions just letting them know how they have been doing and what is expected of them as my ‘toys’. It’s a great meeting that I highly recommend every couple of weeks – you know to keep everyone in line. Signed Minion Master
Dear Minion Master – Hey dude, that is an awesome idea. Having meetings with your toys to let them know what you expect of them. Brilliance. I never thought about that. I think I will put that into plan here at the Hotel Thompson STAT and let my toys know exactly who is in charge and of their play schedule. Thanks my friend – happy bubble bath!
Dear Bacon – Sometimes when days get you down and it seems like life is on one continuous downfall, you have to take matters into your own paws. I had one of those *weeks*. I went to my favorite bar and told the bartender to hit me with a double shot of leche on the rocks. Then I sat there and purred my problems out for the guy. I tell you something oinker – those bartenders, they know how to listen. After getting it out and off my chest, I felt so much better. Signed Puss in Boots
Dear Puss in Boots – Hey my friend, sometimes you just gotta let it go – get it off your chest – sing to your people and let things go. It sounds like you did all of that and you are on the right pathway to enlightenment now. Don’t keep it in my friend. That leads to bigger problems down the road. Now I’m thinking a double shot of leche sounds awesome myself. Cheers!

Dear Bacon – What? Who are people to judge? There I was walking in the woods minding my own business. That’s when it crossed my path. It was so huge. So ugly. So mean looking. Shivers to Smokey the Bear. This thing was huge. What can I say? Even bears hate spiders. They are evil little creatures. Are you afraid of those eight legged freaks too? Signed Sitting on Top of the World
Dear Sitting on Top of the World – I agree with you whole heatedly my friend – SHIVERS! To be so small and somewhat innocent looking, those legs and eyes set me off every single time. They are a wicked bunch who think the entire world is out to get them. In thinking such, Yes. I can admit it. I’m so afraid of them. Heck we had one outside our front porch here at the Hotel Thompson that was so huge that it could carry me off. Is there any room up there for me too?
Dear Bacon – I’m just trying to set the record straight my friend. Not all of my kind is mean or aggressive. That’s how the bad owners try to make us feel. Take for instance me – I’m full of love and kindness as you can see by my friends. I love everyone and would not hurt not a soul. Signed Love Actually
Dear Love Actually – Bravo my friend. You make a great example in setting everyone straight. We are only as our humans are. Full of love and life shows the kindness in your humans – just like mine. We wouldn’t hurt anyone… except for maybe licks and kisses. Keep up the great work!
Dear Bacon – It’s time to have a talk with my master. After balancing the budget for him, there are some cuts to be made. I think we should start in his food budget and see how he likes it for a change. What do you think? Signed Bulldog Accounting
Dear Bulldog Accounting – I think you may be on to something my friend. If we cut their food budget and the things they enjoy, they might see the light when it comes to cutting our food supply and the things we enjoy. Great strategy. Let me know how it works okay.
Dear Bacon – I am ready for the battle. I will protect and serve you my oinker friend through thick and then. I have my sandals and sword and will travel for your safety. Signed Warrior
Dear Warrior – Aaww – that’s a great friend that would pick up, travel to my side and protect me through thick and thin. You are such a great and brave warrior. But in these parts here at the Hotel Thompson, I don’t have much to worry about. Not really. I think most days all I do worry about is whether or not tonight I’m having a salad or side dish from mom/dad’s dinner. That’s the highlight of my worries. You see, I have it made here at the Hotel Thompson. I know that. I say your talents and bravery should be for say a woman of your kind… that way you can win her heart forever every day together. What do you think? Keep me posted because I think personally any woman would be honored to have you at her side – her shining knight hero.
Dear Bacon – Roar! I’m a bear. I’m a fox. I’m a dog. Listen to me ROAR. Barks! No not really. You see I am a dog. However, I look like a fox or a bear. Neat huh? My humans love that about me. At first people are like WOW – look at that bear. Then they learn that I’m a poochie. Then they are like aaaww isn’t he cute? I’ll take it – I’ll take all of the attention I can get. Right? Signed PandaFoxPooch
Dear PandaFoxPooch – I think that’s awesome! You can have the best of three different worlds. Just think of the tight spots you can get out of with your multi-talents. Too cool my friend. And you have the entire package – the looks, the coloring and the roar and barking. Carry it with pride!
Remember my friends that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to send your pictures and letters to my email address. 🙂

Dear Bacon – Sometimes I smell things. And then I see things. No, i’m not a ghost. You see it seems like the yard next to me has it going on with Stacy’s mom. She’s always grilling and hanging out near the pool. I just want to go over and play. The other day, the laughter and the smells were so wonderful. I stuck my head under the gate to see what was taking place. I wasn’t really stuck but I acted like it to get everyone’s attention. They came to the gate and invited me over. What a party! Signed Pup of the Party
Dear Pup of the Party – Hey dude, it sounds like you had the plan for the party. You got an invite – I knew you would with that cute little grin. Now go and play like a good fellow – tell Stacy’s mom I said hey.
Dear Bacon – My master likes to play in the yard and work the ground for a garden. Rolls my doggy eyes. I’ll help to a certain point – especially when he is planting the watermelon. Who doesn’t love watermelon, right? This is me helping my master out by holding his tools. And I always say safety first – wear a hat to keep the sun out of your face. Signed Garden Patch
Dear Garden Patch – Hey my friend I like the way you think. Maybe your master should give my mom some lessons on growing watermelons. I love those big balls of wonder. They are so tasty – I even like eating the rind. Licks piggy lips. Now look what you have done. My miniature pot-belly is rumbling for the hungry of a watermelon. Maybe its not too late in the stores for mom to pick me up one? I love you being a helping paw. I think the humans could use more of them. Take care my friend – happy gardening.
Dear Bacon – You *always* have that one sibling that can’t keep their tongue out of your ear. Purrs in aggravation. Dory has been ‘grooming’ my ear now for twenty minutes. Can you please make her go away? If I screech at her, she’ll run to mommy that I’m not playing nice. Girls – eeww. Signed Marlin
Dear Marlin – Girls. That’s all you had to say my friend. You can’t live with them and you definitely can’t live without them. You have nerves of steel to let your sister Dory bother you for that long. Hopefully, it will be over soon. If not, perhaps you can stretch and tell her you need a bathroom break. Just a thought!
Dear Bacon – I am not amused. Really, I’m not. The human insisted that I needed a bath. I could have done my own thank you very much. But no – the human wanted to give me one. Help me. That’s all I gotta say and I’m thinking my look says it all. Signed Cat in a Shower Cap
Dear Cat in a Shower Cap – Well, wait a minute I need to get a straight face for this, you look all nice and clean. How ironical that your mom picked out a Tweety Bird towel for you. It’s kind of fitting. And that shower cap – OMP – perfect. No sense in getting water in those cute little perky ears. Go with it my friend.
Dear Bacon – Some people use dowsing rods to find paranormal activity. I don’t need those. Some people even use a sixth sense to find paranormal activity. I don’t need those either. Heck, I don’t need to find anything paranormal. I just need to find food. And let me tell you, with these ears of mine I can find all of the food I want. They lead me and I follow. There’s much to appreciate in letting your ears lead you. Signed Food on the Run
Dear Food on the Run – I say let it be my friend – let it be! Lead on to the food and pig out!

Oh my friends. Every now and then as anipals we get caught with that look. You know the look of being busted in mid flight – something like being stuck between a rock and hard a place. You know stuck in the headlights kind of look. These are all letters this week with that look. Hope you enjoy.
Dear Bacon – Help! I need some solid advice on not getting caught. I know. I know. I can’t help it. My parents went to answer the front door. I just happened to be sauntering by the kitchen where I smelled something delicious. I didn’t get busted getting some tasty morsels off the table. My humans said “this look” is what busted me. What say you? Can you help me out? Any tips? Signed Food Buster
Dear Food Buster – Oh my friend. I think ALL of us get caught with this look from time to time. I still say that if the humans didn’t catch you with your paw on the table, how can they incriminate? I say tell them your stomach rumbled at the time of inquisition. Yeah, that should work. No picture – No busted. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it – you should too 🙂
Dear Bacon – There I was safely in the confines of my home snug deep in the ground. That’s when I heard the biggest commotion. Two squirrels were fighting and calling each other names that I have *never* heard of right in the middle of broad daylight. Can you believe that? Do you ever hear Journalist Rocky the Squirrel get into these kind of confrontations? Signed In Awe – P.S. What is a pesky vermin?
Dear In Awe – I say just back down into your home and ignore these fellows. Apparently they didn’t listen to their parents about respect and fighting. And Journalist Rocky the Squirrel has never acted with such behavior. Nothing comes from his treetop home except sweet whistling. Ask for pesky vermin – don’t you worry about that. That is something your little cute self is definitely not. Take care of you!
Dear Bacon – There I was pondering on my plant, sunning myself, nibbling here and there and trying to blend in with my environment. I turned around and there was the neighborhood cat. Oh my lizards – I almost wet myself before going completely still. I almost became a MEAL – can you believe that? Thankfully I was blending in or surely that pesky kitty would have taken me home to their master. Have you ever had a close call? Signed Feeling Green
Dear Feeling Green – WOW – that was a close call my friend. I have had a couple of close with calls some big dogs in the neighborhood. I’m right there with you that they almost made me make water down my leg too. One can never be too safe. Be careful my friend!
Dear Bacon – They should tell you before you jump in the water that it is freezing. Oh my fleas! What were they thinking? Bbrrr – It may not be cold outside but jumping in the water first thing in the morning is highly unlikable for me. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to wizzle again – barks! Signed Shrunken
Dear Shrunken – Snorts and oinks my friends. Never fear. The feeling is only momentary. Daddy does it all of the time… then again that could account for why mom/dad don’t have kids. Never fear though – snorts.
Dear Bacon – Really? You think you have strange humans that go out unattended and get in trouble? Mine don’t need to go out at all to get in trouble. I hope they do realize that this means war in making me look like an idiot. I think I will strategically place this beak somewhere on my master when he sleeps tonight… perhaps even pulling on the elastic for a certain gotcha is called for. What do you think? Signed Chick
Dear Chick – Oh My Piggy Heavens! Shakes oinker head. Yes my friend. I agree wholeheartedly that you do need some payback on this choice of ‘fun’ from your humans. What were they thinking? And yes, a pop of the elastic should go far. Maybe even follow that up with a little something-something in one of their shoes. I’m just sayin’. Stay safe my friend.

Dear Bacon – One good thing about having small humans around the house, they have the neatest toys. Take for instance this cute little rocking chair. Of course, the little human has it for her so called dolls but I fit perfect in it. And you know what they say, “If it fits, you must sits”. Barks! Do you sit in chairs? Signed Rocker Doggy
Dear Rocker Doggy – That is totally cute pal. I have been known to sit in chairs. And don’t let humans fool you. Us piggies we can climb. I once climbed the kitchen chair to get in the seat. Of course, I had an extra motive to do so. There was a bag of kitty chow in it and I wanted some food – snorts. So yeah little buddy, I have sat in a chair but I looked nothing as adorable as you!
Dear Bacon – There is *always* that one friend of yours that does not know the word boundaries. Here I was acting all cute and the master was going to take my picture. It’s not bad enough that darn pooch photo bombed me but he has to hug me and lick me… eeww doggie cooties at its finest. Now I’m infected with dog gross. This is going to require many, MANY hours of grooming. Please make him stop and go away. Hey, I got an idea. Can I mail him to you? You already have a semi-zoo going on there at the Hotel Thompson. They wouldn’t notice one more, would they? Signed Kitty Cooties
Dear Kitty Cooties – Oh dear piggy heavens. That is one hilarious picture. Just remember my friend, I’m not laughing AT you. Not at all. I’m laughing at the situation. It seems to me that you got a great pal there with that doggy. Have you thought about that? I bet he is so protective of you that it isn’t funny. Just think that this could be productive and come in handy in the future of anyone picking on you. He could lick them and infect them with
cute cooties. And hey, the zoo is now full here. Daddy has said so. There are more anipals than humans and we rule the roost… we just let daddy think that he does – snorts and good luck!
Dear Bacon – It is gotten bad that a bun-bun has to do their own shopping now out in the neighborhood. That’s okay though. I take my little buggy and I hit the nearest garden for my collecting of tasty carrots. They are so delicious! I get enough to fill the buggy, go back home and hide them in my cage. Hey – it’s what I do. Do you like carrots too? Signed Shopping Bun
Dear Shopping Bun – Do I like carrots? That’s like saying, “Do you like to breathe?” I absolutely ❤ carrots. They are one of my favorite veggies in the entire world. I snack on them throughout the day – small ones, big ones, orange ones, yellow ones – all of them are tasty to me. And hey, if you are shopping on your own in the neighborhood gardens, just think of the other tasty morsels you can find too. If you come across watermelon, let me know. That’s my number 2 favorite food 🙂 Happy shopping!
Dear Bacon – Say it with me now when I hit the key, “mmmm”. I’m practicing the Meow Mix song so I can be in the next commercial. Do you think I have a chance? Signed Kitty Tune
Dear Kitty Tune – I say go for it my friend. What do you have to lose? I say if that doesn’t work out for you, try America’s Got Talent or American Idol. And if they don’t work out remember this. YOU are always a winner in my book. Look at you tickling those ivories. You go play my friend and have a blast doing it.
FRIENDS – Please remember that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please email me your pictures and letters 🙂

Dear Bacon, Just sitting here minding my own business enjoying a cool one after a long day of chasing the mailman and purr things from my kingdom of a yard. Then the human comes home and has to snap this picture. What? Haven’t you ever seen a pooch relax before? Signed Coors Doggy
Dear Coors Doggy, I don’t get it either my friend. Just a pooch, dressed up drinking a beer. What could your human be thinking with taking a picture? Doesn’t he do the same thing? In fact when he does, why don’t you take *his* picture and let him see what it feels like to be disturbed from your happy place..
Dear Bacon, The humans don’t believe me Bacon. There I was in the kitchen with this rotisserie chicken in the package. Dog’s honor, the chicken exploded out of the package. Yeah, that’s it. It exploded out of the package and ran away. Why do the humans think we did this? Signed Two Innocents Until Proven Guilty
Dear Two Innocents Until Proven Guilty, WOW! I think you need to call your local police department on this one…. maybe Ripley’s Believe it or Not. I can see the headlines now – “Rotisserie Chicken Jumps out of Packaging and Flees”. Uh-oh. Wait a minute. You better rethink that. What if that gets out that you two strong, husky protect dogs let an innocent little chicken flee from the safety confines of your home. This won’t end well. Perhaps you better come up with a better story. How good was that chicken?
Dear Bacon, Ssshhsss – I’m trying to blendsss in here in the hood. I don’t thinksss anyone seessss me yet. I just hope the neighborsss don’t try to hand up any signsss here. I could be busted if they do. Signed Hide and Seeksss Champ
Dear Hide and Seeksss Champ, Gulps. I may never look at a phone poll the same way ever again my friend. You blend so well. Your colors – wow! I’m amazed at your climbing skills of going up and not falling off.
Dear Bacon, One word buddy – OUCH! Snoopy made this look so easy. Trust me my friend. It is not. I may never be able to bark like a big dog ever again. Do not try this at home. Signed Help Me
Dear Help Me, WOW! Watch out Steven Seagal and Jean Claude Van Damme. I think you have some skills there my friend. Probably more now that you’ll never be able to reproduce again – snorts.
Dear Bacon, First we put flour on the board and then crack some eggs. What? You don’t do the cooking at the Hotel Thompson? Oh buddy – you so have to learn in case the humans go on vacation again. These days, I take care of myself. When the humans leave, I hit the fridge and freezer for some culinary delights. If you want to learn to cook, I’m your dog! Signed Chef Poo Chie Lagasse
Dear Chef Poo Chie Lagasse, Sign me up for some lessons my friend. I think all anipals should learn how to cook. I’m good… as long as there is no pork on the menu 🙂
REMEMBER friends Dear Bacon can’t happen without your letters and pictures. Please continue to send them to me for our Dear Bacon issues. Snorts and thanks!

Barks! Welcome my friends to another weekly edition of my Paw Time with Houdini. This week I’ve learned several things here at the Hotel Thompson. First up – I ❤ to wear clothes. No really I do.
Some people say that anipals don’t like to wear clothes and that it’s the human that likes for them to wear it. Honestly though, I love to wear clothes. I mean heck, these days I feel naked if I don’t have something on. It’s my little touch. And one of my favorite outfits is my onesie with the teddy bear on my butt. They are cotton and comfy. They keep me warm and mom says that my snuggle factor goes off the chart when I’m wearing them. Look at the picture. What do you think? You want a pair don’t you? The little sleeves even cover my legs. But don’t worry. I can still access my kibbles and bits when nature calls – barks!
Another thing I’ve learned this week is that Mouse Girl, the purr thing, here really does love me. I mean she fusses at me when I jump on her and play with her but deep down I know she really loves me. When the humans don’t look, she gives me kisses. See, I knew she loved me. She just likes to play hard to catch.
And thirdly, I’ve been taking lessons from my Sensei Master Easy on toy destruction. I’ve struck three times this week (only two that mom and dad know about – evil snorts)! Notice the exhibits below. Of course, officially they weren’t *my* toys – they were the purr things. But you know the Yorkie rules…. Section 3, Paragraph 4: “If they put it down, it then becomes mine.” Barks and laughs!
I think I did pretty get at operation mouse destruction. I gutted them pretty good but actually I’m telling mommy that they blew their stuffing. What do you think Sensei Master Easy?

Dear Bacon – We are in LOVE. Can’t you tell by the grin on my face. Who says that love can’t be with everyone in the world. I’ve found the kitty for me! Signed Snuggable Loveable
Dear Snuggable Loveable – Sigh. Trust me my friends. I do know the full understanding of love. I have someone in my heart who is now a sweet angel above watching over me. My dear Nylablue was and still is the love of my little piggy life. I say enjoy while you can and cherish each and every day my friends! No regrets.
Dear Bacon – The master said fetch and we both went. Whoever brings the stick back gets a treat. Well we have learned to share and share alike – barks barks. We *both* brought the stick back. That should show the master huh? Signed Fun and Games
Dear Fun and Games – I like the way you think my friends. That is an awesome plan for the both of you to get a treat. I shall remember this in the future around here at the Hotel Thompson. Way to go my friends!
Dear Bacon – Please, please make this day that I get that despicable dog today that comes into my yard, takes hefty craps and harasses me to the ends of the earth. Just one little punch in the face from my front paws, or perhaps a back kick, would so make my day. Can you help me out and say that little prayer with me? Thanks so very much. Signed On My Knees
Dear On My Knees – Hey, I’m with you on this my friend. I can’t sit back when one of my friends needs some assistance. I’ll say that little prayer with you in hopes that you can get even with your little barky thing that visits you. The line has now been crossed and pay back is definitely in order. Take care and be quick about it when no one is looking.
Dear Bacon – Who doesn’t ❤ a great kitty condo? It’s the time of the year when the humans do weird things like bringing home lots of packages/boxes. What better time to make a kitty condo for all of us? Who cares about the junk inside of the boxes. Humans are weird. Signed the Three Amigos
Dear Three Amigos – There is something so amusing and wondrous about empty boxes. We love them here too at the Hotel Thompson. And yes you are so true in saying that humans are weird. I’m not sure why this time of the year it happens but it does. Enjoy those boxes there my friends. I know we have a couple of them here that we are working on destruction. It’s so much fun and so messy!
Remember my friends – keep your pictures and questions coming by emailing them to me. Thanks!
