Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I overheard my dad telling mom last night that he was going camping this weekend.  I love camping.  There’s just something about the woods with all of those trees and marking my territory.  I get excited just thinking about it – oops I almost wet myself.  Anyway, I wanted to be ready when my dad got up this morning.  Do you think I’m dressed appropriately for the woods?  Signed Camper in Training

Dear Camper in Training – Oh my friend.  I think you will have  a blast in the woods with all of those trees.  And look at you!  I think you are more than appropriate.  You look like you belong in the woods making trails.  Yes you do.  I hope you have a blast and one thing.  Be careful of the sticks on the ground that wiggle.


Dear Bacon – This  has been a huge day for me!  First I met my new parents who seem pretty cool to tell you the truth.  Then they took me to this awesome store where they had everything… and I do mean everything!  They bought me food and treats and even fitted me for a cute little jacket in case it gets cold outside.  I didn’t think it fit too good in my arms but my humans said that I would grow into it.  Have you ever been to this store that has everything?  Signed Barks and Cuddles

Dear Barks and Cuddles – Look at you!!  Squeals with cuteness.  Never fear, you will grow into your little jacket.  And hey that jacket looks adorable on you.  I just love seeing your little tail peeking out below the bottom – too cute!  And this store you speak of, yes we have one close by the Hotel Thompson.  Mom/dad have taken me in the past as well as Houdini. It has everything that any anipal can imagine.  It’s such a fun place to explore for sure.  Now you take care of yourself little guy and keep us posted on your growing rate.


Dear Bacon – It’s a hard job keeping one’s self in kibbles and treats.  You see I’m a fashion pup model.  I advertise a lot of times for doggy products.  On this date, I was pushing shampoo products as well as supporting dogs who bathe.  Can you believe that there are dogs out there that never take a bath?  The horror in that!  I just can’t imagine not taking care of one’s personal hygiene.  So, I have to ask my friend.  What kind of shampoo do you use?  Signed Pup Model

Dear Pup Model – Now that is a career!  Look at you my friend.  You do have the legs to be an awesome model for sure.  I use a shampoo made specifically for farm anipals.  I know it doesn’t sound wonderful but it’s awesome on my piggy Mohawk and keeps my bristles less irritating to mom’s bare skin around her ankles.  What we do for our humans, right?  You keep on being the star you are sweet friend.  Happy Bubble Bath!


Dear Bacon – I think I’ve made a grave mistake.  You see my dad was taking some medicine and dropped a pill.  I thought it was cool to play with the pill but accidentally swallowed it.  I then saw this snake on the floor and have been holding it for hours watching it to make sure it doesn’t get loose in the hacienda.  The things we do to protect our humans.  Who knows how long this snake has been wiggling around here.  It could have bit someone!  Signed Snake Watcher

Dear Snake Watcher – Oh no my friend!  You might want to not swallow any more pills in the future.  Hopefully this pill will wear off really soon.  I’m not sure what it was – hopefully nothing too much harmful than what it already is.  I mean, catching live snakes in your house – that pill had to be something wicked.  You might just want to go chill for a while.  Perhaps take a nap and it’s okay to let that snake go.  I bet you won’t even find that snake when you wake up.  It’s okay – you’re safe.  Not walk away from the snake and sleep my friend.


Dear Bacon – I don’t get it.  It was raining outside so my dad put my raincoat on before I went outside.  My raincoat is new and I love it because nothing on me gets wet – you can’t see my rain boots underneath it.  Well me and dad are walking outside and people keep looking, pointing and laughing.  I don’t get it.  What’s so funny?  Signed Sluggo

Dear Sluggo – First up, tell me that’s not your name.  Really? Second up, I don’t think they are laughing or pointing at you.  Nope.  No way.  You are way too cute my friend.  I think they are looking, pointing and laughing at your human.  Humans are weird like that.  You just keep on walking and don’t mind them at all.  Just be careful of salt on the streets okay.


❤ Don’t forget my friends to keep emailing me your letters/pictures coming for Dear Bacon submissions.  Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU! ❤

Tough Times at the Hotel Thompson

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/93d/28253568/files/2014/12/img_1305.jpg Hello my dear friends.  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas holiday.  It was wonderful here at the Hotel Thompson.  I think it was one of the best we’ve had in several years that I can remember.  What?  I’m only four – snorts.

We had some things to overcome the week of Christmas – one being mom being ill and then there was Houdini.  Cute poor little guy.  The picture to the left is one that was taken on the way to invasion of aliens procedure… well that’s what daddy calls it anyway – snorts.  He looks so pitiful doesn’t he?  He had no clue.  Now personally I don’t remember the invasion of the alien procedure but I have the scars to show for it.  Mine was done so early in my life – at three weeks.  Unbelievable huh?  Hoo-Hoo waited until six MONTHS for his procedure.  Anyway, I don’t remember mine and mom and dad so that’s a good thing.

Mom and dad dropped off the little guy at 8:00 am on Tuesday, December 23, 2014.  Mom was advised that Houdini would be abducted first.  WOW – if anything these aliens are precise huh?  Mom for some reason was a nervous wreck all morning long.  The vet’s office advised she could call around noon to check the status of the alien invasion.  Rolls piggy eyes.  Mommy doesn’t have that kind of patience so of course she called at 11:30AM.  He was in recovery.  The staff advised he was doing fine and mom could pick him up after 4:00PM.  Of course, again you know my mom’s patience level – rolls piggy eyes, she was there at the office at 3:45PM – snorts.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/93d/28253568/files/2014/12/img_1312.jpg

Mom and dad picked him up, got his medicines (he has a pain pill and an antibiotic) and brought him home.  The first he did?  He tried to lick where his alien invasion happened.  I don’t get it.  I don’t remember licking mine – but then again how could I?  My head doesn’t move like that.  Darn not having shoulders per say.

Mom immediately called the doctors office and they told her to put a shirt on him so she did.  Cute huh?  Perhaps she should have went with the shirt that said, “Problem Child”.  Snorts because he was a problem child.  He kept at it and would move his shirt.

Again mom called the vet’s office.  They advised there was the last possibility – the cone of shame.  Thud – now this should be fun.  So mom and dad dropped off Houdini at Nana’s to be watched while they drove as fast as they could in Albert the Smart car to the local pet store to get a cone of shame.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/93d/28253568/files/2014/12/img_1319.jpgOkay does this picture not look like a sign of ultimate defeat?  I actually even felt sorry for the little guy for a while.  Here he was all drugged up, recovering from surgery and then with the cone of shame.  The first couple of days, he was out of it and so was mom.  Let me tell you about the love of a mom.  Poor Hoo-Hoo, he wasn’t in pain because he was drugged.  But mommy wanted to make sure he was okay.  So what does she do?  She holds him all night long, rocks him to sleep, sings to him and rubs his little back.  All for his comfort so he knows he’s okay.  Can you say aaww?  But that’s my mom.  She’s done the same thing for all of us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson.

Yesterday was the last day of the little guy’s medicines.  I’m not sure who is more glad of that – Houdini or mom – snorts.  I admit he was really good about taking them up until Saturday.  Then he was back to giving mommy a hard time getting those two pills down twice a day.

And don’t think that cone of shame slowed the little guy down.  Not one bit.  By Thursday, he was into EVERYTHING.  He even got stuck up under mom/dad’s bed.  Wearing his cone, he couldn’t get out and he whined so of course mom went on a hunt and find mission.  There he was stuck up underneath a king size bed.  And there was mom, laying on the floor reaching up underneath it trying to get him.  I have to admit it was a hoot of a good time for all of us anipals.  Of course it was.  We *all* tried to help by climbing up and over and all around mom while she was on the floor.  Snorts – it took her about thirty minutes but she got him out.  I wished I had video taped it.

So that’s where we stand right now at the Hotel Thompson.  Houdini still has his cone of shame on and he is healing up nicely.  He will get his stitches out this coming Saturday – which is a good thing.  Then the cone of shame can come off and he can get a good soak in the tub.

Deep Thought Thursday

20140726-195213.jpg

Here you go my friends.  Deep Thought Thursday.  Which pill would you take?

The red pill gives you the ability to be fluent in every spoken language possible.

The blue pill gives you the ability to master every musical instrument in the world.

What choice would you make and why?  This really is a hard choice.  To be able to talk to everyone in the world in their language or play all musical instruments which in itself is a form of communication?

I’ve pondered this for a couple of days.  My choice – I believe it would be the blue pill – to be able to play every musical instrument.  Can you imagine the music you could make?  The people you could touch – the intensity of the feel of music through your body?  The hours of entertainment – the variety of the instruments you could play?

You?
