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!
Dear 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!
Dear 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.
Dear 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.
Dear 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 – 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 – 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.
Dear 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!
Dear 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!
Dear 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.
Dear 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.
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!
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.
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 – 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.
Oh my friends. Have you ever had one of those weekends where you did so very much that you finally just prayed for Monday to get here STAT because of being tired? Can you relate? Mom and dad had one of those weekends. Mom was already feeling slightly under the weather with her flare up. But Sunday night, she could barely walk. But I’m getting ahead of myself. So this is what those two humans of mine did.
Saturday – They got up for breakfast early and tried a new restaurant. Yes mom took pictures that I will post soon. They looked good too. After breakfast, they had to go to Kaiser to pick up some prescriptions. Then mom finally got her nails done – which was long needed. Then they went to Petsmart. Trust me, all of us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson wanted to go to Petsmart. But mom/dad said we couldn’t go because they were running all errands this morning before coming home to crash… which mom did 🙂 So after Petsmart and doing what dad said was ‘buying them out’ – rolls piggy eyes, they went to Wally World – Walmart for those that know the place. Daddy then got a haircut and afterwards, he and mom looked around for some things they needed. So, you see mom/dad did a LOT of walking all over the place. Which normally wouldn’t be bad but with mom’s current flare up situation, it wasn’t good. They left the house this morning around 8AM and didn’t get back home until way after 2PM. Then they had to unload the Jeep and put everything up. That’s a lot of work. With mommy not feeling too well lately, daddy wanted to go someone special for their date night tonight. So they left the house again at 4PM to go to a restaurant that is about 35 miles away.. not just any restaurant though. They have crab legs 🙂 Yum…. not that they brought me any back tonight – snorts.
Sunday – They got up for round 2 of shopping and getting errands done. They got up and went to a local place for breakfast – Cracker Barrel. Afterwards they had to go to a home improvement store named Lowes. Mom had some stuff she needed to return and they had pick up light bulbs and air filters for the Hotel Thompson. Of course, one things leads to another and the next thing they know they have a buggy full of stuff. But some of the things they found my friends – Oh my piggy heavens. I’ll share with you on another post on that – my parents are too hilarious! After dropping off these items at the Hotel Thompson, mom and dad wanted to go to another Wally World location to see if they had something they wanted that the other store didn’t… so off they went again. Not only did they find some things they were looking for but of course they found some more stuff. Did I mention that mommy *hates* shopping? She does. She can’t stand it. So she waits and makes lists and then tries to get everything at once. Silly mom huh?
Afterwards, it was time to do the monthly shopping so off they went to Kroger. Once there, they had to pick up some other medicines they had filled at their pharmacy. Then the major shopping for the Hotel Thompson. And did I mention that mom is a HUGE coupon shopper? She tells us anipals that she has to be so she can’t keep us accustomed to the way we are living. I don’t get it – do you? Mommy keeps up with her grocery list on her iPhone – there is actually an ap for that – snorts. So when we are out of something, she adds it to the list for the next trip. She also keeps up with her coupons on her iPhone. Mom says the one thing about shopping with coupons is organization and that it takes time. So they were at the grocery store for over two hours! Daddy told mommy at one time that just because they have room in the Jeep now doesn’t mean she had to fill him to the rim in this one trip – snorts – silly daddy. But then daddy also said that thank goodness they had Casper the new Jeep because everything they got would NOT have fit into Albert the Smart car. See all of the stuff in the back of Casper. You want to take a gander of the cost? Now mom/dad grocery shop majorly every 2-3 months. They will go every other week just to get milk and bread. The total cost of this shopping spree came out to be $178.00 – she then handed the cashier all of her coupons and told him to ‘make it rain savings’. Snorts – that’s my mommy. After mom’s coupons and such, it came down to a final price of $127.00 – mom said even the cashier was shocked and amazed at that. All of this for two somewhat adults, one pooch, two purr things and of course me who daddy says eats like a small child – snorts.
Then they came home to unload everything. Now mom has a great conclusion to this. She says, you shop all over the store and put things in your buggy. Then you have to unload everything at the register to be rung up. Then you have to load everything in your car to take home. Then you get home and have to take everything into the house and THEN put everything up. What a crap play huh? But daddy knew that mommy wasn’t feeling to good so he parked her in the kitchen and he brought everything into the house for her… aaww – that was sweet. Mom put everything up and crashed on the couch afterwards.
There she was medicated trying to get some rest while waiting for my Auntie Tina and cousins Savannah and Maverick to make it home. See they are visiting for a couple of days and was due to arrive at Nanas Sunday night. Mom finally got the call and her and dad then went to pick them all up for dinner. They went to a great pizza place and talked, laughed and got caught up. Afterwards, Auntie Tina and my cousins came to the Hotel Thompson to visit all of us anipals. That was great fun! We are all older now and loved the extra attention. And a certain piggy may or may not have done some cute things for that extra attention – just sayin’ . When they were done visiting, mom took them and Houdini up to Nana’s for a short visit. She was only there for a little over 30 minutes and then came home. After doing the medicines, for the week, she crashed pretty hard. Who cards that it was only 7PM, right?
So you see, we are all kind of excited that this past weekend is done. Completed. Over. Finished. All but one little itsy bitsy thing. What you ask? Snorts – I’m glad you asked. Tonight mom/dad are taking Houdini to a new groomer. This should be fun. Their appointment is at 6PM, right after mom’s work. Houdini doesn’t know yet. I’ll keep you posted on the results my friends. And one little question, is it the weekend yet? Snorts
I have to give a shout out to my little brother Houdini for helping out last week in my Dear Bacon issue. Who knew that the pooch had it in him to give such great advice? Awesome job little guy – thanks so much!!
Dear Bacon – Sometimes drastic times call for drastic measures. I’m just saying. There we were at the kennel – just the two of us because our parents decided to go on a trip without us. How could they? Neither one of us could believe that they put us up in a kennel while they had a great time in the sun. What’s worse? They forgot my teddy bear. So I did what I had to do. I used the dog as my teddy bear. Have you ever been in this kind of situation? Signed Lost in Vacation
Dear Lost in Vacation – Have I ever my friend? Like you said, sometimes you have to do what you have to do to make it work. There was no problem in using your brother as your teddy bear. Doesn’t look like he cared the least. In fact, it probably made him feel better knowing that you were there with him while your parents were having fun. I say you made the best out of the situation friend. And I know how you feel. Last week at camp, mom forgot my king size Egyptian cotton sheet. It was horrid not having my blankie with me all week. It was the first thing I went to when I came home Saturday night. I know exactly how you feel!
Dear Bacon – Sometimes you have just had that kind of day. You know the one. The one where you can’t catch the squirrel.. or the mailman.. or that loud car that vrooms-vrooms up/down the street all day taunting you..or that pesky purr thing. Shakes head. Today was that day. The cat ate all of my food. Mom forgot to give me water before her and dad left for work. I was thirsty. I couldn’t even get to the toilet in the bathroom because the purr thing shut the door. That purr thing really has it out for me. So, when dad finally got home. I had to have a cold one. It was screaming my name. Have you ever felt this way? Signed Cold Brewsky
Dear Cold Brewsky – In a word, YES. I have felt that way at times. You should try living here at the Hotel Thompson with a pooch and two purr things. The pooch I can handle most of the time. It’s those two pesky purr things. They are conniving. And yours shut the bathroom door on purpose and drunk all your water. WOW! I think that calls for a major payback. Nods head and looks innocent – not that I sponsor that kind of thing in this world where we all need to get along. I’m just sayin’ though when the purr thing isn’t looking maybe you should turn their drinking water yellow if you know what I mean. Let them know what it’s like not to have fresh water all day. Take care of yourself little guy!
Dear Bacon – That damn dog. Yep I said it. I know you don’t like to hear things like that but look what that stupid Brewsky did to me! He dared me to go out on this stupid flimsy looking float. Okay maybe with that dare was a piece of cat treat that he strategically placed on the floaty thing. What can I say – my stomach rules me. I got on this piece of floating crap and he pushed it out into the water. I’m stuck! Call PETA. Call Animal Control. Call someone. I’m stuck on an island of hate. You just wait until I get that creepy little dog! Signed Island of Claws and Hisses
Dear Island of Claws and Hisses – Give me a second to pick myself off of the floor from laughing. Why don’t you give Brewsky a break. If I read his letter correctly above, did you not drink all of HIS water and shut the bathroom door so he went without water all day? At least he gave YOU water. I’m just sayin’. Can I get you anything? A pillow, some tea or a biscuit? Snorts with piggy laughter. Don’t worry, I’ll call your parents…. in a couple of hours. Give the dog a bone and put those claws in… you wouldn’t want to get a hole in your floaty thing.
Dear Bacon – Oh have mercy to the doggy heaven. What has been seen can not be unseen. Shakes head. I do believe that my eyes are stuck this way. The humans they scare me. If you ever hear your humans say something about going skinny dipping – don’t walk – RUN! There we were last night outside near the pool. The only light we had was from the blue moon. The humans were laughing like they do sometimes and talking about skinny dipping. Let me just tell you that there is no skinny or dipping involved. They took off their clothes and jumped in the pool. That’s right – without anything on. Oh.my.eyes! Signed Shocked for Life
Dear Shocked for Life – Oh my piggy heavens! That look – I was so hoping that you just had a Botox injection and not was scarred for life. I so hope my humans don’t dare this. First off because my piggy pool wouldn’t hold my dad’s foot let alone the both of their bodies. And running naked in my backyard under the moon with just the two of them, I think the earth would just suck me up right there and then. I hope your look goes away soon my friend.
Dear Bacon – What? I’m sure you have heard of the saying piggy back ride. That’s what we were doing here. The humans had went to work. We drew straws and I got to go first. What? Don’t all dogs do this? It’s kind of fun. Why should you piggies have all of the fun with this neat ride? Signed Harley and Davidson
Dear Harley and Davidson – Well guys I gotta say it is fun. Sometimes the little guy here, Houdini, gets on my back for a piggy back ride. And hey let me tell you something. Piggy back is not just for anipals. I saw daddy giving mommy a piggy back ride the other day. It’s a fun game – what can I say? Carry on and don’t worry my friends. I’m not hating!
Remember friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU! Please keep sending your pictures and questions to my email.
Dear Bacon – Hey dude! With all of the soccer craze going on right now, I thought I would hop along and be a professional athlete as well. I love soccer. There is nothing more relaxing than kicking the ball around. I think I’m just as good as David Beckham or Pelé or even Cristiano Ronaldo. What do you think? Do you think they would count my front feet as hands? Do you ever play ball? Signed A Beautiful Mind
Dear A Beautiful Mind – Awesome. That’s what I say. I think it’s awesome that you love to play soccer as much as you do. I can see you in the Olympics and at the big game. And yes I can see you next to the greats that you mentioned. I myself have snouted a ball around the backyard here from time to time. I think it’s a great way to relief some stress. I don’t care what any other peep thinks, you do what you love my friend. Go score BIG TIME!
Dear Bacon – Can you guess who my hero is? Go ahead guess. I bet you can’t figure it out? I know you can’t! I’ve gotta go now and find my brother Luigi and that gorgeous Princess Peach. Signed Mario
Dear Mario – Snorts! Good one my friend. You are awesome. You look just like that guy. No doubts in my book at all. And yes we guessed right off who you were. You see my mom loves Mario and Luigi and all your friends. She says she grew up with them and gave them a run for their money playing arcades.
I think you need to work your look for as long as you can and make it work for you. Perhaps you can go on a nationwide tour and promote Mario and Friends. Wouldn’t that be fun? If you come to my neck of the woods, I would love to see you in person. Take care and safe travels!
Dear Bacon – I told everyone I would be back and here I am. I’m back and ready to take over the world. This time I’m coming back as a pooch that is deadly… that has secret weapons of destruction. Don’t get in my way. Signed Poochnator
Dear Poochnator – WOW! Does your humans know about this? And I have to ask. Do you know my friend Easy? Are you secretly Easy in disguise? A pig has to know these answers my friend. And hey, does your mother know about your late curfew while you are out saving the world? And my mom says to tell you to remember to wear clean underwear… you know just in case something happens.
Dear Bacon – I’ll do anything for a carrot. I’ve heard you are the same. What would you do for a carrot? Signed Tony “The Pig” Hawk
Dear Tony “The Pig” Hawk – You go my friend. You ride like there is no tomorrow. Hit those decks, do those tails, ride those carves and hit some air. I can see you doing all of these tricks and getting all of the carrots you could wish for. And have I done anything for a carrot? You betcha. I’ve given Mouse Girl here back scratches and washed Hemi’s feet.What? That’s as adventurous as this pig gets!
Dear Bacon – Oh my pussy cats. There I was in the house walking around like I normally do. I went into the bathroom and there was a beautiful bubble bath in the tub. I looked around and no one was there. So I decided to take a little dip thinking that humans left it for me, right? I’m laying back enjoying the suds and then have mercy – the human master walked in naked. What has now been seen can not be unseen. I’ll even be honest with you. I’m not sure which one of us screamed the loudest. Signed Rub-a-Tub-Puss-in-a-Tub
Dear Rub-a-Tub-Puss-in-a-Tub – WOW! Now first up. That is a lovely ‘scared’ picture of you in the suds. It does look like you were enjoying yourself. Second up, I gotta ask. Did you give up your luxurious bubble bath and give it to the human or did you share? Snorts – I know I wouldn’t have gotten out!
FRIENDS – Please remember that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please email me your pictures and letters 🙂
