Dear Bacon – Oh dude! What a game that Super Bowl was over the weekend. OMD! I dressed up in a disguise – you know like from the Super Bowl commercial – and was able to get a ticket to see football up front and personal. Cats against horses – you know those Broncos were going to win – Go Peyton Manning! What did you think of the game bro? Signed Mr. Waddles
Dear Mr. Waddles – Love your disguise. I can see how you got in to see the game in person. And what a game it was! I was sitting on the edge of my chaise the entire night rooting for the Broncos. I’m not sure who was happier – me or dad when they won! Heck, I jumped on the internet and went ahead and bought dad a Super Bowl 50 Bronco hat – of course with his credit card – snorts with piggy laughter.
Dear Bacon – Dude, you have never experienced life until you stretch out in a hammock and just relax the day away. In fact, I think your humans should buy you a piggy hammock. I bet you would enjoy it. Signed Swinger
Dear Swinger – WOW – you do look really comfy there my friend. I’m thinking that this Spring/Summer here at the Hotel Thompson, mom/dad might just need to get me a hammock for my magical backyard. They can put it on the back deck so I can over look new discoveries. Thanks for the heads up my friend. Keep on swinging!
Dear Bacon – I think I partied way too much during the Super Bowl game. I remember eating some snacks. I remember chugging some beer after playing beer pong. That’s it. Afterwards, the next morning I woke up with a cold one still in my paws. Shaking my doggy head – I gotta quit partying like this. Signed Born to be Wild
Dear Born to be Wild – Dude, when you stop remembering your actions from the night before, it’s way past time to stop drinking. Just be lucky you didn’t wake up with someone else in your bed. Oh my – can you imagine that? Shaking my piggy head. Safety first my friend. You might need to reach out to DAA (Doggy Alcoholics Anonymous). I’m sure they can help you.
Dear Bacon – OMD OMD OMD. Sometimes this little red light laser thingy gets the cats going on here at my crib. But tonight, that crazy red light kept popping up on the ceiling in my kitchen. I couldn’t have that unidentified red light breaching my food. So I did what any dog would do, I jumped up at it to catch and destroy the red light. I must have caught it because it went away. Have you ever seen this red light? Signed White Dogs Can Jump
Dear White Dogs Can Jump – Look at you my friend! I’d say you took care of that red dot. I’ve seen it before too here at the Hotel Thompson. It’s very mysterious when it shows up and then disappears for what seems like weeks. Do you think it’s an alien trying to impersonate us anipals? It’s so weird!
Dear Bacon – A gal can only take so much from her man. Mr. Endless Nagging kept going on and on about such nonsense – I couldn’t take it anymore and lost myself in the moment. I don’t think he will bother me for a while – do you? Signed That’ll Teach You
Dear That’ll Teach You – Heck woman – it taught me not to nag you – snorts with piggy laughter. Whatever happened to if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all? Cause, trust me your man needs to learn that little tidbit of information. And hey – you got a great right by the looks of it.
REMEMBER MY FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Remember to send me your letters and pictures to my email.

So friends how did you do this week? Did you have a good week? I was down 2 pounds – I’ll take that any week. Little pounds add up to big pounds and slow wins the race here. I type this watching the Super Bowl and I can tell you a couple of things. First – Way to go BRONCOS! I’m so excited that they won – it was a great game. Half time wasn’t that bad – I was okay with that. I’ve seen better and I’ve seen worse. The commercials – my favorite was the singing goats. Hilarious. And what better way to end the weekend – I’m sick. The hub unit came down with something on Friday night and I think he shared – bad husband. Chills – cold then hot – sometimes both. Sweats – runny nose – sneezy. Yuck and muck. So with 2 pounds being gone last week – 🙂 I’m happy
Today is the start of the NFL Drafts – yippee!! Me and dad are super psyched! What? Can’t a piggy like football? I’ll have you to know that my relatives come from a long line of playing in football. We have gotten thrown around by some of the best of them out there – Joe Montana, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Mike Ditka – just to name a few. Oh those were the days of playing in the games – but that’s not what I’m here to discuss.
I’m here to discuss the new option that the draftees get to do this year. If you get drafted, when you come to the front of the room to accept you get to have your own ‘theme’ music played. Cool huh? This is the first time they’ve done that on drafts.
So, my question to you is – what would be your theme music? I’ve thought long and hard about mine. I’ve provided a video for your amusement 🙂 You’re welcome.
First off, let’s talk about the most important bowl game today – Puppy Bowl X. The show starts promptly at 3PM on the Animal Planet. If you’ve never seen the Puppy Bowl, you really need to watch it today. It is totally awesome and keeps me busy cheering for hours. Daddy has his game later today (which I’ll tell you about in a minute) and I have my game with the Puppy Bowl.
And don’t think that the Puppy Bowl is just about a lot of puppies on the screen doing nothing. There’s actually a referee, puppy touchdowns, penalties, timeouts and substitutions. That’s right – it’s a Puppy Bowl to see!
The rules are easy. Puppies go on the field and when a puppy drags one of the football shaped toys into the end zone, a puppy touchdown is declared. If a puppy has an accident on the field by ‘going to the bathroom’, a penalty is called. If the water bowls need to be refilled or puppies get into a fight, timeouts are called. And, you know what they call it when the puppies get into squabbles? Unnecessary rrruuufffness. Snorts. And if the puppies fall asleep, substitutions are sent in to play.
Over the years, they’ve had different ‘cheerleaders’. These little cute hedgehogs holding pom-poms were a huge hit last year. I’m kind of hoping they make a comeback this year. Aren’t they just adorably cute?! In the past, they’ve also had bunny cheerleaders, chicken cheerleaders and my favorite in 2012 was the Piggy Pep Squad. Personally, I think they need to bring the Piggy Pep Squad back. I would *so* want to try out for the team. I think I have what it takes. I have the look. I have the chemistry. I have the personality. I can dance.
And you can’t miss the Kitty half time show! It’s going to be a blast for sure!
But if the Puppy Bowl doesn’t it do it for you, you can always wait for dad’s game later today at 6:30PM. THE Super Bowl. Two really good teams will be going head to head – Seattle Seahawks vs Denver Broncos.
Do you have a favorite team? I think mom/dad are leaning towards the Denver Broncos. They like the quarterback from the Broncos – Peyton Manning. Go Broncos!
And don’t forget the half time show on the Super Bowl either. This year they are going to have Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing.
And the other thing about the Super Bowl, you *have* to watch the commercials. They are usually the most hilarious commercials to remember for the night. So my friends, get your snacks and drinks ready. Go to the potty early so you can enjoy all of the fun today. Get comfy on the couch. I’m going to be watching the shows all day long. And hopefully, mom will pop me some popcorn.
