Confessions of a Spoiled Pampered Pig

Okay.  They say that admission is the first step.  So, breathe in.  I’m going to admit it.  Are you ready for this?  Are you sitting down?  Here it goes –


There, it’s out.  I feel so much better now.  It was hard to say that out loud and I know that you are shocked about that statement.  I’ve adjusted myself to my living quarters and my way of life at Hotel Thompson.  I’ve learned though from watching television and from the different emails that I receive ( that I’m pampered more than most animals… heck some more than regular people.  It’s a hard way of living and I do consider myself really lucky to have been adopted by mom and dad. 

There are a couple of things that have been brought up lately at the house and in emails.  We’ve had some people ask why I don’t go outside.  Please don’t think that mom hasn’t tried.  She has several times.  I’ve never been.  I was a runt and was inside being taken care of by a surrogate.  Then mom adopted me and brought me home to my nursery.  I have a potty patch in my room and I’m trained to use it.  In fact, I have my own room.  I have my own bed.  I have my own television.  Mom has tried her best in tempting me into the back yard.  But you know, nature is out there.  I would get my hooves dirty.  I know – I know.  I might like it.  But what if I like it too much and never want to come back in again?  There’s so many questions to ask myself.  I’m not saying that I’ll never go outside.  I’m just saying for now, I’m happy and content.  Mom says that when I’m ready, I’ll venture out and explore.  Maybe this spring I’ll try it again.  We have a nice big backyard, fenced in and there’s lot of grass out there.  I’ve even watched the bunnies play out there.  So stay tuned come Spring – I’ll think about it over my hibernation in the winter months.

The other thing that people have been shocked and amazed about is that I sit on the sofa.  Why not?  Do your purr things or barky things sit on the sofa?  Then why can’t a oinker?  🙂  I used to jump on the sofa and I still do at times.  But, I’ve learned lately that if I put my front hooves on the couch, mom will pick up my hams and help me on the couch.  Isn’t she great?!  I then stretch out beside her, she wraps me up in our cuddly blankie and we snuggle.  She warms my body up with her body heat and we watch television.  Okay – I usually drift off to sleep sometimes and snore but we’re still snuggly.  I love sitting with mom.  I call it our quality time together. 

I’ve surfed the night lately and I have found that I’m not the only piglet that sits on the sofa.  Shocker isn’t it?  Some even have friends that sit with them.  Take a look and let me know what you think –

Happy Hogaween!




Tonight is my big cyber Hogaween party.  I can’t wait!  Mom is hooking up the skype to my room and we are surfing with my four legged friends with their costumes.  It should be a huge hit.  I will definitely be sure to get pictures and post them, hopefully tomorrow.  Me, mom and dad have decided to dress up like the three little pigs.  I don’t require a costume – snort.  I hope everything has a safe and fun hogaween.  Don’t forget to stay with other people and watch out for cars. 
I’ve found some pictures on the internet that I thought was hilarious that I would start your day off with.  Have fun!












and my favorite –



Happy Hogaween!

Dear Bacon

20121030-071845.jpgDear Bacon,
I have no boundaries when it comes to friends. Take my friend Clyde here. He use to be in the movies and thinks he needs to father everyone by making sure they’re ok and they’ve eaten. He tries to force feed me bananas all of the time. I’m just not a banana eating kind of dude. Why am I to do? Signed Punk


Dear Punk,
Have you ever tried a banana? They are kind of sweet and simply delicious. Try one and you might like it. Go ahead Punk make my day. It’ll be great. I myself love them. Tell Clyde hello for me.


Dear Bacon,
How do you take your popularity out on the streets when you roam the grounds?  I have found myself that people come up to you all of the time wanting your autograph or picture.  Even though I’m retired, I still get asked.  Signed Seth

Dear Seth,

It took me a minute to figure out who you were but I did – great movies my friend, scary but great.  People don’t really recognize me yet from my web page.  The circles that I do hang around don’t really consider me a star per say.  I’m just an everyday pig. 



Dear Bacon,

I’m also a past performer and I’ve learned several tricks in my day.  One was that if you put your ear to the ground, you can tell how far away people are.  These days, it’s hard for me to put my ear to the ground so I just put it to the fence.  Have you ever tried this?  Signed Scout

Dear Scout,

Interesting tidbit of information.  Mom let me watch one of your movies the other day.  She actually said that there is a remake coming out of your movie – can’t wait to see it.  I’m going to have to test that trick out to see when I can tell mom and dad are heading towards my bedroom.  Thanks my friend!



Dear Bacon,

The master was away from the house yesterday and we got into a little bit of trouble.  As you can tell, we won and the toilet paper lost.  Needless to say when everyone got home we were grounded.  You ever done anything so stupid?  Signed Two Dogs and a Cat

Dear Two Dogs and a Cat,

Oh most definitely.  I think we all lose our minds from time to time and do dumb things.  This past weekend I myself got timeout twice for thinking I could win the battle of the baby gate that closes off the kitchen from the living room.  I might have knocked that gate over but I was the one serving time for the crime.  Just be cute and loving for a couple of days.  Parents tend to forgive and forget.


20121030-073106.jpgDear Bacon,

I’m in trouble.  I had just gotten home from the vet’s office.  I was sleepy and passed out on the sofa.  When I woke up, this is what I had on.  I’m not sure who did it but really it’s unexcusable.  This picture is all over the net now.  What am I to do?  Signed Pooches

Dear Pooches,

Just say it was a Halloween costume.  It’s that time of the year and I think you can pass it off.  In the future, be careful of passing out.  You never know who’s around to play games with you  my friend.

I Had a Nightmare Last Night

20121029-085056.jpgI had a bad dream last night and woke up squealing.  Mom had to come in my room, check on me and hold me a bit.  I tried telling her about my dream but I couldn’t remember everything.  The only thing I could remember was this picture.  Shivers – it was a nightmare.  I know Mouse Girl had something to do with this dream.  I’m not sure yet what it was but I know she was responsible somehow. 

Wouldn’t you be scared witless too if you had a dream like this?  Shivers – double shivers

Morning from the original baconator!

Don’t I look pretty? Mom gave me a bath last night. She’s getting better with that. She at least put Cheerios in my water this time to keep me busy. Cheerios float. Last time she used my piggy chow. Guess what – that doesn’t float. They melt. We both learned a very valuable lesson from that bath snort.

Can you see the makings of my little Mohawk happening here in this picture? I call it my piggy bed head. It’s really bad in the mornings until mom smooves it down.

I have to admit that I’ve gotten pretty rotten and lazy lately. At least that’s what dad keeps telling me. Like in this picture. I walk up to mommy on the sofa and all I have to do is put my front hooves on the couch. Do you know that she will actually lift my heavy butt on the couch now? Isn’t she the best? Dad says she is spoiling me. Do you really think that is possible?

Also from my picture you can see how big I am. A lot of people still say I’m huge but really I’m not. Think about it. A normal size pig can weigh 200 pounds and more. I’m a minitaure pot bellied pig. I only weigh around 35-40 pounds. I’m kind of short and stout like a teapot but I’m the size of a medium dog. I guess I kind of act like a dog as well in some ways. I sleep a lot. I eat a lot. I love a lot. I even play fetch and run around. Heck, I even bark. But, come closer cause I don’t want this part out – sshh – I’ve even been known to chase my tail a bit. Don’t tell anyone okay. The biggest difference is that I have hooves and I snort!

Pumpkin Piggy Power!

20121022-070304.jpgPiggies love pumpkins.  I think we look so adorable next to one.  This is really my first Halloween and I am loving it!  I have found so many cute pictures of us with those big orange pumpkins.

For Halloween this year, mom is letting me have a cyber party.  I’m going to hook up the skype on my computer and visit with different friends dressed up in their costumes.  I think that’s a cool idea and will be so much fun!  Daddy came up with the idea – thanks dad! 

Don’t worry though, I’m going to have my friend take pictures of everyone.  Hopefully I can get everything up the next day for you to look at.  In fact, it might take me a couple of days.  Should be a blast! 

I hope everyone is looking forward to Halloween.  I know I am!

Popcorn Treat

Mmm popcorn. Don’t you just love it? It’s one of my all time favorite treats. I know the tin that mom keeps my miniature popcorn bags in. I know the sound that tin makes when mom opens the can. I also know the sound of the microwave door and the sound of the kernels popping.

I know it so well that I can be all the way down the hall in my room and recognize the sound. I’ll hear it and come running down the hall to the kitchen. I know it’s my bedtime treat.

I just can’t get enough. I don’t get it every night but when I do – aaww I love it. Here’s a pic that mommy took of me tonight chowing down in my popcorn.
