Dear Bacon

20130319-114735.jpg

Dear Bacon – They are right when they say the eyes are the first to go. These days, I’m having to wear glasses just to get around the neighborhood.

I know other dogs make fun of me and it kind of hurts my feelings. What should I do? Signed Four Doggy Eyes

Dear Four Doggy Eyes – Hey guy, if it helps you to see I wouldn’t care what other dogs think about it. One day, they are going to experience problems as well. They are being doggy bullies and you know what.

Bullying is totally unacceptable in any form in any way – humans or animals.

Hold your head up high my friend. Wear those great looking glasses with pride!


20130319-114747.jpgDear Bacon – Around these parts, they call me Sheriff Groucho. I love protecting my house and yard wearing my outfit. Sometimes, the humans even walk me through the neighborhood and so I can protect and serve other animals in the hood. It’s what I do. Signed Sheriff Groucho

Dear Sheriff Groucho – Hey, I like the look. I think it’s great that you are taking care of your neighborhood like that. If only other animals great and small would take charge and take back their own neighborhoods, it would be a wonderful place to live. Almost like Mr. Rogers neighborhood. I could see me living there.

Keep up the great work my friend. I think you deserve a pat on the back and a good job well done!


20130319-114802.jpgDear Bacon – You talk about your mommy reading you bedtime stories all of the time. I like to read my own. I especially like Dr Seuss Go Dog Go. Have you read it? Signed Smart Pooch

Dear Smart Pooch – I haven’t heard of that book. I’m going to have to get mom to get a copy so she can read it to me one night. Thanks so much for the suggestion. I love how you hold your book. I only wish my hooves could accomodate that move.


20130319-114824.jpgDear Bacon – You know riding a hog is just not for the humans – no pun intended. Sometimes on nice days outside, I like to jump my bike and ride. I like to feel the wind going over my body.

Do you like to ride? Signed Harley the Frog

Dear Harley the Frog – I like that bike. I absolutely love the color. Your legs are a tad bit longer than mine. I have short legs unfortunately.

It would be fun to feel the wind blowing through my hair though. I may have to see what I can do about that. Keep riding my friend and stay safe.


20130319-114959.jpgDear Bacon – Some days, it doesn’t pay to even get out of bed. On this day in fact, I went from on top of the bed to under the bed. I just passed out and slept until the world was nicer to me. Do you ever have those days? Signed Pooch in Life

Dear Pooch in Life – I do have days where I go back to my bed until I feel better. It’s not every day. It just seems like some days Mother Nature is out to get you and throws lemons at you. Instead of passing it on to the humans, I sleep it off as well. I don’t have the back sleeping going on like you do but it looks comfortable!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I’m a Himalayan Marmot.  I like to hang out at high elevations.  It helps me to destress and meditate.  I find a happy spot on some rocks, look over my kingdom and focus on being a better marmot.  What makes you feel good little man?  Signed Deep Thoughts

Dear Deep Thoughts – You already have me in deep thoughts with that picture my friend.  I myself don’t like the higher elevations or looking over anything with that height.  I think I would panic.  I do however try to meditate in my room after my dinner.  I focus on happy things over my kingdom at the Hotel Thompson.


Dear Bacon – There is nothing like laying around after a good meal.  I like to put on my little sweater to keep me warm.  Do you wear clothes?  Signed Petite Sweets

Dear Petite Sweets – That is a real look there my friend.  You do look like your ‘full’.  And, I do like the sweater.  I’m not much of a sweater person myself.  I do wear t-shirts though.  Mom has a couple of pictures.  I’ll have to find them and post them later.


Dear Bacon – You know that happy feeling you get when the human loves on you, you’re tired from playing and things are right in life?  I have here.  Can you tell?  Signed Happy Pooch

Dear Happy Pooch – I would have never guessed you were happy in that picture my friend – snort.  I think it’s the grin that gives it away.  It looks like you ate the mailman or something and got away with it.  Stay happy my fellow four legged friend.


Dear Bacon – Be honest with me my friend.  Are my ears big?  I kind of have a complex with them.  They worry me.  The humans don’t say anything but they look at me with that pitiful look in their eyes like something is wrong.  What do you think, be honest.  Signed Tiny

Dear Tiny – I’m a firm believer in loving what God gave you.  God gave me a pot belly.  It’s there.  I can’t help it.  The only thing I can do is love what I got.  When you are happy with yourself – you will be happy pooch.  It shouldn’t matter what others think.  Make the best of what God gave you and go with it.  I know I am!  Hogs and kisses my little buddy.

Dear Bacon

20130319-111324.jpgDear Bacon – I need some help.  I experience a lot of road rage when I’m driving these days.  Any suggestions?  Signed Mad Cat

Dear Mad Cat – First of all let’s just start with, what the heck are you thinking?  Step away from the back of the wheel.  That might be the problem in itself.  You should not be driving my furry little animal.  Leave that crazy behavior to the humans.

Step away!


20130319-111337.jpgDear Bacon – Just to show you, you’re not the only little four legged animal to be surfing the net.  I’m forever doing it myself while the missus sits on the couch behind me watching television.  Man, we can learn a lot from that internet, can’t we?  Signed Dog in Charge

Dear Dog in Charge – You got that right my friend.  The internet is huge.  Some of the things I find are unreal!  I’m glad to see you computer savvy.  I may have to get you to write an article for my blog!


20130319-111438.jpgDear Bacon – The humans – they are so funny… well they think they are.  The master put this watermelon on my head and then called me a melon head.  I don’t get it.  Do you?  Signed Melon Head

Dear Melon Head – I don’t get the saying but I do get the watermelon.  I love me some watermelon.  They can put it on my little head but it won’t stay there that long.  I will eat that watermelon rind in about 3 minutes flat!

Yum – Yum!


20130319-111502.jpgDear Bacon – As you know, when we find that comfy spot – we go for it.  This is how the master found me.  But I was good.   Really, I was.  Signed Contortionist Pooch

Dear Contortionist Pooch – WOW – that is quite the pretzel sleep look you got going there.  I’m all about getting into that one position that makes the Sandman come but that takes the top spot.  I don’t really have that kind of flexibility with you know my pot belly and everything.

You actually might have a career in the circus with the way that you can bend.  It kind of makes me hurt just looking at that position.


 

20130319-111535.jpgDear Bacon – You know how they say people wear their hearts on their sleeves?  Well, I wear mine on my hind quarters.  What do you think?  Signed Love

Dear Love – I have to admit I snorted and giggled.  That was funny my friend.  That is quite the birthmark you have there.  I think it’s kind of cute.  I like it my friend!  Wear it with pride.

Paw Time with Houdini


Hello sweet friends.  I hope that you have had a fabulous week.  I’ve been doing what I enjoy most – stretching out on some comfy blankets and sleeping… you know in between the other important things in my life like eating, more sleeping, playing and of course more sleeping.  Hey, a dog has to have plenty of rest to protect the home.  And you know it’s hard work trying to make sure the daddy stays on top of things here at the crib while mom is off at the worky place.

And when mom is at home – especially on the weekends – she has been doing a lot of cleaning and what she calls decluttering.  Sometimes I just want to tell her to sit down and take a nap.  Really, she looks like that cartoon character that’s always buzzing around.  This will end soon, right?  Dad calls it nesting.  I call it deranged.

So with that being said, I leave you today with Jokes with Daddy.  I hope you enjoy my friends and have a great weekend.  Remember to get some rest!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Toby

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

♥ FRIENDS – make sure you leave some messages.  Toby will be checking in throughout the day and answering comments. ♥


Name:  Toby Wilson

Age:  I am twelve years old. My birthday was July 18th.

Location:  I live in Hampton, Ga with my Mom, dad, and my brother, Max( he’s 4 and he doesn’t look like me but he’s brother all the same.

Web/Blog Page:  My Mom’s Facebook Page

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Hmmm my first thoughts when I met my new parents. I think I was about six and when my other dad brought me to their house I didn’t realize I was staying. When I got there I ran up the stairs and all over the house and then something happened.  My new Mom took me for a walk. I peed on all the mailboxes in the neighborhood. Oh I hope it’s OK I said peed. It was so much. Then we went back to the house and I looked all over the house for my dad (now my former dad) and I couldn’t find him no where. I laid at the top of the stairs and waited for him to come back. I was sad. My new mom petted me trying to make feel better but I just wanted my mom and dad to get me. Then later my new dad came in and I barked at him and then you know what happened?  My new dad and mom took me for a walk and I peed on the mailboxes again. It took me a little while to realize my first mom and dad weren’t coming back but now I wouldn’t give anything for my new mom and dad now( well actually they’re not new anymore). I still get to see my old my mom and dad sometimes, which is great, but I prefer my new mom and dad.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  I’m not sure. I know love the things my mom and dad do with me. They will give me belly rubs when I ask. I get a lots of treats. They even let me have food from their plate. I love my mom and dad and love being here with them forever.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   My “Oh No moment” is when I just have to poop in the house when mom and dad are gone. I have to cover it up so they don’t see it. I use some of Max’s toys to cover it with in hopes they don’t see it but somehow they still see and scold me. But when it’s my mom, she’ll feel bad and still give me a treat. I so love her. 

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  My mom is so wrapped around my paws. She will do anything for me. I just look her and she says, “OK Toby, but only one treat”. I finish that one and I look at her again and she’ll give me another one. She picks me up and holds me whenever I want her to. Not my Dad.  He’ll say I have enough.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  The biggest misconception humans think about me when a car starts without me in it and I start barking at it and I won’t let them leave.  They think I am scared of the car but that’s not it at all.  I just want to go for a ride.  I don’t know why they won’t take me for a ride.  I really am a fun guy.


Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I’ve made a grave mistake here.  I thought I could jump over the little seat thing that kids swing on… I really did.  I jumped and mean old Mr. Gravity said, “Nope, not today”.  I really hate that guy.  So I guess you can say I’m stuck between a swing and hard place.. .namely the ground.  Any suggestions cause apparently my human who thinks it is hilarious is too busy taking my picture to lend me a paw.  Crazy human.  Signed Swinger

Dear Swinger – You know that’s the problem these days.  When anything happens, humans want to pull out their cell phones and take videos or pictures instead of lending a helping hand.  I don’t get it?  Burning car on the highway – no problems let me video tape it first before checking for survivors.  House on fire – oh yeah this will be good on my Facebook before putting the fire out.  Dog caught with his kibbles and bits up in the air – no worries.  Let’s get this picture first before the pooch passes out or by all means gets unlatched himself.  I definitely feel you my friend.  Can you bounce up with your front paws to get your back paws back on the ground and then wiggle out from that contraption?  Let me know if I need to call someone…. I’m hoping you are free like the wind now 🙂


Dear Bacon – I *know* I saw that darned squirrel on this tree.  I know I did.  He was running around on the ground taunting me.  I know he’s here somewhere.  If you see him, let me know okay.  Signed Hunter

Dear Hunter – Oh my friend, I’ve seen him alright.  He’s a sneaky sly little fellow.  I would go as far as to say that he has skills of unnatural means.  Put your paws down on the ground silently.  Now just as silently and be careful of the crunch of the leaves, slowly walk around the trunk of that massive tree.  Quiet now.  You don’t want to scare the little fellow.  You may find him around on the other side watching you… waiting for you to leave.  Smart little guy huh?  Enjoy playing tag my friend.


Dear Bacon – I don’t get it.  I found this wonderful food on the ground.  It’s awesome!  So much chocolate.  There I was sitting in my tree enjoying it.  That’s when the weird stuff happened that I don’t get.  My friends kept walking by and saying, “Georgia eat a Snickers bar.  You know you’re not you when you’re hungry”.  Shakes head in confusion.  I don’t get it.  Do you?  Between you and me though, that Snickers bar did hit the spot.  Signed George

Dear George – Snorts with piggy laughter.  You don’t watch television much do you my friend?  You see there were some wonderful Snickers commercials out some time ago that had the saying, “You’re not you when you’re hungry”.  Okay, maybe the better thing to do here is to show you one of them…. one of my favorites.  Then it will ALL make sense.  Enjoy my friend.


Dear Bacon – I think the purr things here are pranking me.  They said they had a surprise for me.  They then told me I had to put my paws over my eyes and stay that way until they came back.  That was three days ago.  Do you think it’s save to go to the bathroom.  I really, REALLY need to go now?  Signed Waiting

Dear Waiting – Shakes head.  Oh my friend.  Don’t you know yet that purr things are horrific for doing such things to us?  The two here try to do these things to me as well.  But I don’t fall for it.  You can never trust a purr thing – sorry my cat friends.  But you know it’s true to.  Ya’ll are beyond devious and you have so much training from years and years of taking care of yourselves.  I bow down to you.  I really do.  So why don’t ya’ll do all of us a favor and leave us alone.  And Waiting – by all means go to the potty before you explode like a balloon.


Dear Bacon – My humans are wickedly bad at this torture.  They really are.  There we were watching some superheros on our television.  I was minding my own business and just enjoying the company on the couch.  My dad said that all superheros need a mask.  He was eating a sandwich so well you can see what he did.  Why?  That’s all I really need to say, right?  Why?  Signed Masked Bandit

Dear Masked Bandit – Oh my friend.  You have to give your dad something on creativity.  And you have to admit that it is pretty cute.  No one would ever guess that’s you behind the bread.  Nope not at all!

 

 


REMEMBER friends.  Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send me your pictures and questions via email.
