Dear Cocco – Special Edition

 My great friend Cocco at http://myminipetpig.com/ has stepped in to do a special edition of Dear Cocco.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  That little Cocco is a very pigtalented little oinker.  I think together, we could rule the world.  Big thanks out to Cocco and his mom Katie for this special edition!  We hope that you will do it again in the future ((HOGS AND KISSES))

Dear Cocco,

We know you piggies are considered the fourth smartest animals around but did you know that we hamsters are very talented?  We have formed a musical band and we are pretty sure you and your piggy friends couldn’t do that.  Signed The Musical Trio

Dear Musical Trio,

We actually don’t need to form a band.  We are a nonstop one-man band kind of animal.  We can squeal, screech, snort, bark and kiss.  We are innately musical so we don’t even require any instruments.  Ha.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Cocco,

Did you know that cats can dance?  We are extremely graceful and actually invented several moves.  We are wondering if you can guess what dance we are doing.  Signed The Stealthy Cats

Dear Stealthy Cats,

Why thank you for enlightening me.  I wasn’t thinking you were dancing at all.  I was thinking you were in the midst of a cat fight.  Now that I know you were dancing, I am quite sure you were doing the Cha Cha.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

20130326-133702.jpgDear Cocco,

Us dogs know revenge.  My humans went on a walk and didn’t think I could make it the whole duration since I’m “getting old” so they left me home.  Their mistake was leaving dinner to cool on the counter.  These old bones jumped up and gobbled it all down.  I’m feeling pretty smug.  Signed One Smug Pug

 

Dear One Smug Pug,

I say good for you.  You put your humans in their place.  I bet you taught them a lesson and they will take you along next time!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

20130326-133650.jpgDear Cocco,

Hippos love having their teeth cleaned.  Trainers think we are just naturally obedient when it comes to teeth cleaning but the truth is our teeth love the massage.  They squirt the water in, tickle our gums and then tell us “good job”.  Did you know we hippos eat as much muddy grass as we can just to get those silly humans to give us a tooth massage?  Signed The Toothy Hippo

Dear Toothy Hippo,

A tooth massage sounds like good clean fun.  I’ll avoid one at all costs though and leave the enjoyment to your kind.  The only kind of massage I like is of the belly variety.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Cocco,

These wild flowers are making me a wweeeee bit giddy!  Hehehe, come have a sniff.  You’ll be feeling silly in no time!  Signed Goofy Giggler

Dear Goofy Giggler,

I’m on my way, save some flowers for me!

Splish Splash I Was Taking a Bath –

This was one of my all time FAVORITE videos of me taking a bath. Notice me stomping my feet and blowing bubbles in the water. I love to do this! Mommy thought she would video tape me at bath time. There is absolutely NO privacy here at the Hotel Thompson. For goodness sake, I was in my birthday suit – snort chuckles.

When I’m done splish splashing and playing in the water, mom towels me down to dry me off.  This video that she took is priceless.  I don’t know who was more surprised – me or mom!

Hope you enjoy the video my friends!

Liebster Blog Award

YAY – the Liebster Blog Award has been given to me by my bud Cocco and his mom Katie ( http://myminipet.com ) 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 – http://myminipet.com

  • 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!

Room Service at Hotel Thompson

20130114-223940.jpg

Room service at the Hotel Thompson is really a great and wonderful luxury for this little piggy. When you go to fine hotel, most of the time you get turn down service and a mint on your pillow. Not here at the Hotel Thompson. It’s even better than that!

I have a schedule that I like to stick to and I try to get in bed by 9:00 every night. I need my beauty sleep and a structured schedule works really well for me. I called for room service to be delivered around 9:10 – this gives me plenty of time to do my business and brush my teeth.

Room service arrives and it’s a party in my tummy. Instead of a mint on my pillow, I get one of the most delicious treats in the entire world. Tonight I ordered my favorite, bananas and eggs. It may not sound like a great combination but to me it’s like steak and caviar. Mmm – yummo!

After my snack, room service (AKA mom) stays to tuck me in and read me a story. Hey, I’m set in my ways. I’ve grown accustomed to this at the Hotel Thompson. Snort chuckles.
