Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I’m getting too old to be the party dog in the crowd.  My friends are trying to have an intervention with me and took this picture.  I really didn’t think I had gotten that bad but pictures don’t lie, right?  Between the beer and the shots of tequila, I was out for the night.  I guess it’s time for me to reach out for help.  What do you suggest?  Signed Boozer

Dear Boozer – You are right my little friend.  Admission is the first step and you have taken that step in the right direction.  There are group meetings that you can attend in your area with AAA (Anipal Alcoholic Anonymous).  Make that phone call my friend and good luck with your recovery.


Dear Bacon – The big thing right now is to Netflix and chill.  I’m all for it.  This is me watching my favorite movie Willard.  If you haven’t seen it, you must watch it.  It’s amazing.  And of course no movie is perfect without the snack of some cheese.  What’s your favorite movie to chill?  Signed Will Jr

Dear Will Jr – Well my friend.  I looked up your movie.  It is what shall I say intriguing for sure.  My favorite movie lately is My Brother the Pig.  This is also an amazing movie.  And I like to watch it with snacks as well – my favorite is popcorn.  You keep chilling little guy!

 

 


Dear Bacon – Cheap labor.  That’s what I call this.  Our human has a lawn service and dude he puts us to work for kibbles.  We all have our assigned duties from leaf blower, raking and working the riding lawn mower.  It’s unheard of but it does make for some interesting looks when the humans drive by.  I’m hoping that one of the neighborhood ladies will take notice of our skills.  What do you think – we got a chance?  Signed Canine Lawn Care

Dear Canine Lawn Care – Hey, if you were in my hood, I would definitely hire you for sure my friends.  However you get the job done, that’s key in my book.  And once the ladies notice your working skills and the kibbles that you are bringing in, they will have to take numbers at your front door.  Be safe!


 Dear Bacon –  Look dude, it was a spider on the ground.  I don’t do spiders.  Nope, not at all.  And it was gigantic.  There was no way I was staying on the ground with that monster.  And those humans – they just walked around it like it was nothing.  They are the strangest people.  You afraid of those creepy crawlers too, right?  Signed Spastic

Dear Spastic – Let me get this right.  You are afraid of spiders but not height.  That’s amazing.  And what’s more amazing is that the humans are just walking by without a care not even paying you any attention.  WOW.  Too bad you can’t act like a bird and drop a little something if you know what I mean – snorts with piggy laughter.  I do understand your arachnophobia.  I myself don’t like the little pests with all of those legs either.  No one blames you for that.  Just be careful getting down off that limb okay bro.

 


Dear Bacon – Look at me – I’m a turtle.  Barks!  Okay maybe not a turtle.  Maybe a cute little pooch. Yep that’s who I am – a cute little pooch.  My human is always dressing me up different ways.  I say go for it because they always give me great treats in return.  Do your humans make you do anything stupid for treats?  Signed Michaelangelo

Dear Michaelangelo – Once my mom put me near a carton of eggs and took my picture.  She said I was the bacon and eggs in its original form.  I don’t get it but mom/dad got a great laugh out of it.  And like you as well – I got great treats.  So hey, if it doesn’t hurt us then I say wear it with pride.

Paw Time with Houdini

Don’t worry mom.  I’m here to protect you – even in here.  I think we all know where here is, right friends?  Who knows what could happen to our humans when they enter their litter box.  There is a lot of things in there that could hurt them.  I mean what if the flushy thing swallows them up and they disappear.  Where would we be then in getting our own food?  You do see the worried look on my face, right?  I gotta go in there with mom just to make sure she’s okay…. and that there are no monsters living in the tub.  Have you checked that place out lately my friends?  We can never be too careful!  I’m off to patrol again with daddy this time.  Be safe!

Travels in the South

What week would be complete without a birthday cake picture?  Mom/dad went to a local italian restaurant last week for mom’s birthday.  This is a piece of wonderful cake mom got at the end of her meal.  It’s called the Black Tie Mousse Cake.  It has rich layers of chocolate cake, chocolate cheesecake and a creamy melt in your mouth mousse.  Did mom enjoy it.  YES.  It was just enjoy to enjoy and share with daddy.

I’m an Official Southern Pig – Snort

In some parts of the south, they tell you that your not officially a southern until you’ve had the basics.  The basics could be many things but some of them are collard greens, grits, sweet tea, fried chicken, sweet potato pie, macaroni and cheese and boiled peanuts.  I’ve had several of these things.  It makes sense.  My mom was born and raised in the south.  You know just between you and me they call people like my momma GRITS – Girls Raised in the South.  Snort

Well, let me tell you about one of these things that I absolutely LOVE…boiled peanuts.  Oh goodness – they are simply delicious.  And no, I didn’t have them in a RC Cola and no I didn’t have them on ice cream which is common here.  I had them straight up out of the shell.  mmm.  Boiling them just brings out a different flavor.  First of all, they’re soft so there is no crunch.  You boiled them in seasoned water right over an open flame.  Mom knows a guy that knows a guy that fixes them – LOL.  You break open a shell and juice goes everywhere.  Then you see the tasty little morsel.  You pop it in your mouth and it’s still hot from the flame – SHUT THE FRONT DOOR – the taste explodes in your  mouth.  It’s a little salty, sometimes it can be a little spicy according to the seasoning, and they are God’s tasty little morsels.

If you haven’t tried any yet, what are you waiting for?  Try them now and let me know what you think.  Dad never ate any until mom introduced him.  Now he can’t stay out of them.  They are that good!

Paw Time with Houdini

Yawns!  I just gotta ask something my friends.  My dad says I’m spoiled and that most pooches don’t wake up like this in the morning.  You know with their head on a pillow and feet under a blanket.  I think he’s wrong.  I think a lot of us wake up like this, right?  I mean why would he care.  I’m not on his pillow.  I’m beside mommy and she shares everything with me.  And I like to sleep like this with my feet up in the air.  That way mom can spoon me and rub my belly.  Heck, I’m not spoiled.  Not at all!

I Know How To Play

20130419-090124.jpg

Where there are matters of food, you can so find me. I love food. Can’t you tell? It takes a lot of hard work to maintain this wonderful pot bellied figure.

Mom has a thing for Lifesaver Gummies. She bought the bigger bag at the store so that she could introduce them to her favorite, ME! PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).

Dad was like, “Bacon’s not going to like them”, etc. Mom was like, “I know my baby. He’s going to LOVE them.”

20130419-090202.jpg

Well mom even went the extra step and said she was going to try something new with me. I’m not a dumb pig. When she says that, there’s going to be lots of extra food for training – snort – YES!

Mom gave me a gummie Lifesaver and what do you know – I loved it. She then proceeded to put one on my snout. She was telling me, “No, no, not yet.” I listened to her because you know more treats for me!

Then she said I could go for it. I couldn’t flip that thing off of my snout fast enough into my mouth. It was so good and juicy!! Have you ever put anything on your nose and flipped it into your mouth? Daddy was laughing at me because he said one time at a restaurant with mom he put a clam on his nose and flipped it into his mouth. See, if the food is good – they will come.

Aaaww – these are the good times! XOXO – Bacon
