NOTE: Due to Bacon’s Show and Tell coming out tomorrow (3/31/2015), I am featuring my weekly Tuesday edition of Dear Bacon issue today. I hope you enjoy my friends!
Dear Bacon – When you are tired, you are tired. What can I say? I’ve watched the humans here at my paradise. When they come home from work, they lay down on the couch and put their legs up. I thought I would give it a whirl. I gotta say, it’s awesome. So relaxing and peaceful. Have you ever tried this? Signed Forty Winks
Dear Forty Winks – You know you look so peaceful there my friend. I’m going to have bounce the purr things off of the couch here, climb up and stretch on the big boy couch to see what it feels like. I have gotten on mom’s love seat with her but somehow your position looks so appealing. Thanks for the tidbit of information. I’m off to see if purr things can fly now. Snorts
Dear Bacon – The mailman was being so rude when he snapped this picture. Yes I was taking a power nap. But let me set the record straight right now. If he had opened the gate or stepped one toe into my space, I would have been on him like a casing on a sausage. I’m just sayin’ – no joking around. I protects what is mind. Signed Power Pup
Dear Power Pup – You know my friend I believe you. How dare that mailman take this photograph of you and send it to your humans. I just know you will get even for that little mis-step… right? I’m sure a great sneak attack barking ferociously will set that guy in his place… in more ways than one. Keep me posted.
Dear Bacon – My human said I was quote, “Flying off of the rafters” and advised me to take a nap. Yes that is right. She sent me to her room while she had company. Hhmmphh – I was sore for a few minutes. That is until I pounced on top of the big bed and got comfy on her pillow. These humans have the life! What luxury they sleep in – and they expect us to sleep on the floor. I don’t think so. This pillow is now marked MINE… all MINE. Signed Spoiled Puss
Dear Spoiled Puss – Hey, I’m with you my friend. The humans do sleep in luxury. I agree 100%. That’s why every time I get a chance, I’m so on mom/dad’s Select Comfort bed right in the middle with *my* pillow. And yep, I would be a 65 on the Sleep Number bed – snorts. Happy Dreams.
Dear Bacon – Our human went to sleep while we were out playing. We heard them snoring. Dude, they can make the racket louder than any of us, right? Well, me and my twin thought we would just stare at them until it woke them up. Have you ever done this? It’s a fun game. The woke with a start. I think we have powers… secret powers. Signed Pig Powers
Dear Pig Powers – One pig to you two, I *know* we have super powers. The humans just don’t realize it but they will soon when we take over the world! Snorts – Pig Power
Dear Bacon – Oh dude. I went out last night with the boys and things got a little wild. Okay maybe a LOT wild. I woke up like this on a picnic table in a yard I don’t know with none of my friends. I don’t even know what we did. Shakes head – what a night! Signed Cat Calling
Dear Cat Calling – Oh my friend, you need to slow down and rethink your life. You don’t even know what you did, where you ended up at and no friends to help you in case something happened while you were sleeping. You might want to rethink that party life and focus on the future. Your college cat calling nights on the fence might be over. Take care of you okay!
REMEMBER FRIENDS – We can’t have Dear Bacon issues without YOU. Keep your pictures and questions coming to me via email 🙂
I love Christmas!! Last week was really hectic here at the Hotel Thompson. Mom and dad had parties to attend, people to visit and lists to make. One night, mom came home to a package on the door step. I just *knew* it was for me – snorts.
Mom brought it in and I helped to open it up. OMP (oh my pig!) This was totally unexpected. I got a package from my brother from another mother – Easy at http://easyweimaraner.wordpress.com/ Talk about excitement and tail wagging. I almost took flight right there in the Hotel. ♥
Play toys – which might I add the purr things went crazy for. Which I was kind of glad because it kept them away from me for just a tad bit so I could look at my SUPER HERO shirt – thud! Finally, I can be a SUPER HERO – Spider Pig. And mom, she’s such a softy. In the upper right hand of the picture, there is a book on piggies. There are some of the cutest little darlings in that book. Mom boo-hooed like a little girl oohh and aaww over the piggies. It is a great and wonderful coffee table book. In fact, mommy took it to work to put on her office table.
This time of the year has been made so special to me. Thanks my brother for thinking of me and the others here at the Hotel Thompson. And as your card stated, I really wish we could have Christmas together. Perhaps one year 🙂
Look – look at the piggy babies! There’s 8 of those cute little guys and girls. Madeline belongs to a friend of mom’s and she gave birth this past Saturday. Dontcha just want one? Just to cuddle and oohh and aawwee?
Mom is getting that “look” in her eye. You know the one that you humans get when you eyes glass over and water comes out and your heart pitter patters… that’s the one. I think her pigological clock is stomping again. Lord help us ALL if she adopts a friend for me – snorts. Can you imagine the Hotel Thompson with two of us ruling the roost?
Yep, that’s right. I said that outloud. At least mom’s ten piggies got to ‘swim’ in the ocean at Tybee Island. So much for ‘no pigs’ allowed, huh? snorts.
They arrive on the island on Saturday and the *first* thing mom did was run to the water and stick her piggies in it. It does look kind of nice if I say so myself.
She took several pictures to share. This to the right is one of my favorites showing the pier. See all of those palm trees? They were put out for a movie they were shooting. You know Sponge Bob. All of those palm trees did make the pier look beautiful and inviting. Each day, workers from Paramount Pictures were out grooming them and fixing them up from the winds off of the ocean.
Hope you enjoy these pics of the beach. Mom says they make her want to go back again – really soon! You? Maybe next time they can bring a little oinker named Bacon!
Aren’t they just so cute and adorable?! For some reason, I just heart baby piggies. I’m not sure why. I can’t quite put my snout on the reason. They just make me smile and there’s a weird feeling that comes up in my pot belly. It’s strange.
These little piggies are local here in our area. Momma’s friend, Gail, has a niece who works at the Pettit Creek Farms in Cartersville, Georgia. They have all kinds of exotic pets! These little piggies were brought home to get use to handling. Don’t you just want one?
They are totally cute overload! Mommy keeps looking at them with a glazed look on her face. I hope she’s not thinking that I *need* a new brother or sister. Really I don’t. I’m fine with being the one and only piggy at the Hotel Thompson! Can ya’ll help a pig out and convince her of that for me?? Please – XOXO – Bacon
One of my favorite past times at the Hotel Thompson is watching commercials. I just love them! You can find me in my bedroom watching them on my television all of the time. What? Don’t all piggies have a bedroom of their own furnished with cable.. let alone Netflix? Have mercy on their souls if they don’t. *I* can’t live without my luxuries at the Hotel Thompson. Can you imagine ‘me’ without my laptop or iPad. How would I ever keep in touch with my cyber friends? But, that’s probably a posting for another day. Let’s get back to the commercials.
I love them. I watch them all of the time. I have my favorites. Today, my favorite is the one from Geico. I have to admit Geico has a really good advertising company that produces their commercials.
They’ve come up from everything from the gecko that talks – to a caveman can do it – to my friend Maxwell now going out on dates! And we all know why *I* like Maxwell. Because he’s funny! But I have to say that yesterday I saw the one that tops almost all of them. It takes you a few minutes to figure it out but once you do – you will be PRAOTFL (pig rolling all over the floor laughing) as well. Oinks out to a job well done Geico! Let me know what ya’ll think – XOXO – Bacon
Of the entire house, my favorite spot to sit while the humans are at work is in the kitchen sink. I know it seems weird but it’s perfect to overlook my kingdom outside. Plus if I get thirsty, I can turn on the tap and get a little drink. What do you think? Where is your favorite place to overlook your kingdom? Signed Sink Pooch
Dear Sink Pooch,
Well my friend, I’m not one to judge. If you like the sink, go for the sink. If your humans are good with it, go for it. It does look as if it does give you full access to your viewing pleasure. I like to sit in the front room in front of the clear storm door. I can see outside into nature – over my kingdom – and the creature that are out there. This is good for me because I don’t want nature ‘touching’ me. I don’t mind the sun that shines in, that’s refreshing. Bugs, small creatures and grass – shivers to this little pig.
This is my favorite toy to play with in the entire playground! During the day when no one is looking, I will wobble down the play equipment and play on it while the kids are at school. It’s so much fun! Signed Panda Toy
Dear Panda Toy,
That does look like so much fun! I wonder if I get on one to play? I wonder if this pot belly will allow or my short legs would touch the ground? Off to draw some pictures to see. Thanks my friend – have fun rocking!
I’ve been reading your blogs for sometime now and wanted to tell you how much I appreciate them. You give away some really sound advice and seem very caring. I like that. Sorry for the bag over my head. I’m in the doggy witness protection program so I can’t show my face. I hope you understand. Carry on my friend. Signed Underbagcover
Thank you so much my friend for the words. I really do appreciate them. It makes this little piggy feel good that I really get to touch some lives for the better. I have to ask though and I know others are going to think the same thing… what does a dog have to ‘see’ or turn over evidence on to get in the doggy witness protection program? hhhmmm
I just had to share what the humans do to me. I think it border lines cruelty. They play the piggy game with me… this little piggy went to the market; this little piggy went home; this little piggy went whee whee whee. It tickles – stop it! Signed Laugh Bear
Dear Laugh Bear,
I don’t get it. What’s so funny about those sayings? Looks down at hooves – they’re hooves not piggies. Shakes head and walks off to ask mom.
What? You never saw a monkey with it’s legs crossed sitting in a tree pondering life? I mean all of the great philosophers did some heavy thinking. What’s the difference with me? Signed Aristotle
There is no difference. You carry on and keep having those deep thoughts. When you get them all together, please share with me so we can have a deep discussion. I have heavy thoughts at times as well my friend.
