Dear Bacon – I have the perfect plan my friend. Oh barks – it’s the best! Here’s the plan. I plan on going door to door in my neighborhood. When humans come to the door, I plan on telling them that I’m and Inspector with C.M. across the country. You know C.M. = Canine Meals. And that I’m there to sample their canine meals for originality and taste. Dude, I think I have a chance. What do you think? Signed Inspector Husky
Dear Inspector Husky – Oh dude! I think you do have a plan there. I can see it now – canines from all over the world will be catching on in their neighborhoods all in the honor of YOU. Might I suggest you get a badge made up as well. You know humans these days won’t let you inside unless your official. Be safe and keep us posted.
Dear Bacon – There we were me and my human going for a walk here in the Spring – rolls doggy eyes. Yeah Mother Nature has a twisted sense of humor. Snow in Spring. Yeah okay. Back to my story. We were walking and all of a sudden this snow came drifting off of the roof. I moved but guess who didn’t? Barks! Where’s Lassie when you need her to let peeps know my human fell and can’t get up? You know I did what I could. I stuck my head in the snow to make sure they were breathing. They were. Signed Lassie in Training
Dear Lassie in Training – Well priorities my friend. At least you made sure that your human could breathe. We all know that their hearing and reflexes aren’t like ours. This is just proof in the pudding – snorts. You did dig him up, right? I hope he’s not still there.
Dear Bacon – Well there goes my political career. I was going to run for President however this picture has now been circulated by the other candidates. I knew they were afraid of my charisma and they knew I would beat them. Darn it. I missed being President by just a cat’s whisker. Signed Nip Ready
Dear Nip Ready – You know my friend this doesn’t mean the end. As long as you didn’t inhale, you may have a chance. Really – check it out in the past history. I think you still need to run. Heck, even with the nip history you still have a better running campaign than some. Honestly.
REMEMBER my friends. Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to send me your letters and pictures to my email address. ♥
I made a big HUGE mistake a couple of days ago.
I’ve spent the past days reflecting and trying to make it up to mommy. I can’t tell her I’m sorry enough. It was an accident and she does believe that. She knows that I would absolutely not hurt her or anyone else in any way. And we’ve talked about it and she told me there was nothing to forgive. It was an accident all the way and she couldn’t be mad at the cutest little piggy in the world. That’s how I can tell she wasn’t mad – she’s been calling me that since she adopted me 🙂 When she calls me that, everything is right in the world, you know?
You see last Friday morning started like any other. I got up and mom fixed me my Cheerios and piggy chow. After I ate, I jumped on the sofa and we snuggled together watching the morning news. And then it was time for her to get ready for the worky place. This is where uh-oh took place. 😦
Mom *always* gives me a couple of animal crackers before I go back to bed in my room for my morning nap. She hand fed me one while I was on the couch and everything was fine. The second one she hand fed me, I kind of sort of nipped her thumb.
I’m not sure who was more surprised, mom and me. I know it as soon as I did it. To her defense, she didn’t make a big fuss over it, she didn’t yell or get mad at me or anything. She patted my head with her other hand and said, “Let’s go to bed Bacon.” Of course, I being the obedient pig I am went down the hall and went to bed.
That’s when I heard it. Mom told dad she had an ouchie. I could hear them through my bedroom door talking in the bathroom. Mom thought I just nipped her on the front part of her nail on her right thumb. What she didn’t realize until she was in the bathroom with daddy was that I actually got her on the back of the thumb too. That was the big boo boo. Daddy said he couldn’t kiss it enough to make it better. I felt so bad! Daddy put a bandaid on her thumb and doctored mom up sending her off tot he worky place.
I know people don’t think we have teeth but we do. And where I’ve been losing my baby teeth and regrowing my new ones, they are sharp and edgy. Again, I didn’t mean to do it. And of course, mom didn’t mean to put her finger in my mouth. It just kind of happened and it was really quick.
Daddy doctored up mommy and she’s fine now. It is almost healed. A little tender still at times but nothing like it was when it happened. She had a sore hoove for a while but now it’s like it never happened. That’s a good thing, right?
