Dear Sammy – Special Edition

Today, we have a very special Dear Bacon issue – it’s called Dear Sammy. My cousin Sammy is going to fill in for me today and do his own edition. Be sure to go visit Sammy when you get a chance and tell him what a great job he did. Thanks cousin!!

20140414-092942.jpgDear Sammy,

This is what I’m talking about. See, I’m so tough that the big kitties act like I’m not even there. They don’t mess with me, even when I growl at them. Can you control big cats too? Signed Ferocious Kitty

Dear Ferocious Kitty

I think you are obviously handling the big kitty situation at your house just fine. I can tell by the way those big cats are walking right by and NOT looking at you that they are truly intimidated by your presence. They hear your growl of warning and just keep on walking. You are destined for greatness – they already made the “The Lion King” but I’m thinking perhaps you could star in “The Ginger and White King”? Can I be your agent?.

.

20140414-092953.jpgDear Sammy,

There’s nothing to see here. Really. I’m just massaging the dogs face. Yep. That’s it. Really. Signed Face Stomper

Dear Face Stomper

I’m not sure if that dog is so drugged up from whatever operation he had that caused him to have to wear the Cone of Shame that he doesn’t FEEL you there or if you truly are performing some kind of facial massage. But he doesn’t seem to mind either way so I say GO FOR IT. I’ve never been *that* close to a woofie before but ‘more power to ya’ is what I say.

Dear Sammy,
Help. I’ve been mugged. The humans here have such a whacky sense of humor. What am I to do? Signed Puppy Mugged

Dear Puppy Mugged,

If I was in a bar (which I’m not) and I ordered a brewski (which I wouldn’t) and they served me with a mug full of adorable puppy like you, I’d be pretty darn happy (as long as I could train you to meow instead of bark of course). However, I would NOT leave the barmaid a tip. When a guy orders a brewski, he does not expect it to have eyes looking back at him!

.

20140414-093021.jpg Dear Sammy,
Oh dear Lord. I am not a chia dog. The humans found this get up and took advantage of it. Help. Please. Signed Chi-Chia Dog

Dear Chi-Chia Dog

After I finally stopped laughing, I realized the only way to improve on this outfit would be if your humans had put orange sneakers on your feet… the non-clay-colored feet ruin the effect! I think your humans are si-si-si-silly!

.

Dear Sammy,
Look closer. To the left. Down a bit. There you go. Signed #1 Hide and Go Seek

 

Dear #1 Hide and Go Seek

This is totally CUTE… but the more I thought about it the more I realized why it sort of creeped me out too… why? Because it almost looks like your little head is coming OUT of that bear’s belly (think “Alien”)!!! See what I mean? EEEEEEKKKK!!

Oh My Nylablue –

Uh-oh.  I’m in trouble with the love of my life – my Nylablue.  I’m in what dad calls the proverbial pig house – similar to a dog house.  You see, I was just fooling around yesterday on April Fools Day when I did a post titled I’m Sorry.   It was just a joke.  You know how us guys can be.  But my beloved, she read it and didn’t wait to go down to the bottom of the page so she thinks I strayed.  Which might I add, I would never do on my Nylablue – my heart – my sweet little purr thing that holds my piggy heart.  She wouldn’t even talk to me last night via her mom Sherri-Ellen.  My poor Nylablue stomped off to her bedroom and wouldn’t come back out.  Thus, I am in DEEP trouble.  I guess you could say this was our first squabble.  So I need to show my Nylablue how I feel about her.

My love Nylablue. My heart is only for you.

It’s not meant for any other.  You’re the glue that keeps me together.

You are so beautiful and I’m not delusional.

I love you with all my heart and there’s no reason for me to dart.

Because when I am about, I don’t want to be without.

You’re like a dove in my heart that fills me with such love.

So this little piggy loves his little kitty.

And here’s a ring for his sweet purr thing 🙂

Oh Hemi – You Are Too Funny

Hemi is one of the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson.  He’s always getting into trouble – way more than me.  Can you believe that?  Snorts.   Mom calls him her “Fear Factor” cat because he has no fear of anything.

Last night, he was rolling around on dad’s television tray trying to get some love.  I pulled out mom’s video camera and video taped him.  You *have* to watch until the end to see what kind of nut Hemi is.  It’s way too funny!  “I” would never do anything like this.  Nope, no way – snorts.

Hope you all have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!

Bacon and Nylablue Date Night

Date night *finally* got here this past weekend. I’ve been walking on a cloud every since my Nylablue at http://nylabluesmum.wordpress.com/ said she would go out with me. So much planning needed to be done. I wanted our first date to be something that she would always remember and dream about. My bud Speedy at http://www.speedyhousebunny.com/ graciously offered to help me out. I don’t know what I would have done without his help. I’ll tell you, for a little rabbit – he has some *super powers*!

20140304-003756.jpg

Date night came quickly with all of this planning. Speedy jumped into his magic closet to travel and pick me up so we could flash to Canada to pick up my love. Let me tell you, traveling in buns magical closet was something in itself. Speedy is FAST. He picked me up like I didn’t weigh anything at all and we jumped in the tunnel. I closed my eyes so tight and the next thing I knew there we were in Canada. I should have put on my winter coat because it’s cold there! I don’t see how my love does it. But that’s okay, I’m here to keep her warm now 🙂 Introductions were made in real life with Nylablue’s mother, Sherri-Ellen. I promised to have our princess home at a decent time and not to tire her out too much. Then, we were off.

20140303-235218.jpg

Speedy pulled the limousine around and picked us up in style. There’s nothing like a white stretch limo to make the girls swoon, huh? This one was fantastic! There was so much room for us inside to stretch out and partake in some of the goodies that Speedy had stocked up in the limo. Nothing but the best for my little Nylablue..

.

20140303-235226.jpg

There was plenty of bottled water stocked and Speedy even remembered to stock some light snacks for us. There was tuna, crackers, shrimp balls and this fabulous aged cheese. It was all very delicious. But do you know what made it even more special? Having my sweet lady right there beside me to enjoy everything. We sat, snacked and talked about our lives while watching the landscape pass us by in the limousine windows. It was by far the highlight of my life so far. Nylablue stretched out on one of the seats and looked like the princess she is.

20140303-235242.jpg

Our first stop in our magical journey was an ancient temple in Cambodia. You know I figured cats are curious and that Nylablue would love this. We all got out to investigate the temple and the grounds. It was like a magical moment trapped in time. Everything was so quiet and it was like just the three of us were the only ones left in the world. It had a very calming and healing effect I believe. I’ve never seen grass so green and believe it or not – it didn’t feel weird on my hooves which is something I normally hate. It was pigawesome. And Speedy, he was wonderful in telling us about other temples he had been to.

20140306-100730.jpg

When we got done exploring, we went to the back of the temple and found a gorgeous lake. It was pure bliss that we all stretched out and let the warm sun rays envelope us. We stayed there for almost an hour in silence. No one really needed to say anything. We were all content and happy. We had each other, the sun and the beautiful day that we had been looking forward to so much. It was our little heaven. It was as close to perfect that we could ever plan.

.

20140303-235328.jpg

After a while, my pot belly started to rumble. Darn that belly. But by that time Nylablue was started to get a little hungry as well. We decided to have a little picnic right there with the mountains in the background. Speedy had packed us a variety of different delights. There was a magnificent tuna spread, baked carrots, aged cheese and chicken. This was definitely the best picnic basket I’ve seen. We took turns trying different foods and yes we might have fed each other a bit. Some things need to remain at the temple 🙂

.

20140303-235320.jpg

Afterwards, we went walking in a field next to the lake that was filled with daisies and butterflies. Nylablue and I took turns chasing the butterflies and running through the daisies. It was an afternoon of carefree delight in doing nothing but having fun with each other. We even played tag for a while. Then we played hide and seek. Nylablue hid first and I asked her if I found her what would I get? She purred and meowed. I snorted, closed my eyes and started to count. All I can tell you is that I found her and a gentlepig never tells of his adventures. This was the best date of my entire life. So much so that I made my little Nylablue a video of our time together. I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed my day with her. And Speedy, thanks my man for helping us out with your talents. You are the best!

Cough – Cough – Mark Your Calendars

20140112-011904.jpg

<<This guy>>

That’s who!  Shake your hiney.  Do a little dance.  That’s right.  This little oinker has asked a certain lady out for this weekend and she has accepted.  There’s lots of plans to be made – reservations, meals, limousine, entertainment, photographer – WOW – so much to do.  But I don’t fear.  My special buddy Speedy is going to help me out – Thanks Speedy!  You are the bestest!

.

Oh, you’re probably asking who the lucky lady is or some of you might already know.

That’s right it’s my Nylablue – the love of this little piggies life.  Aaww – love struck.  Isn’t she beautiful?  She’s been feeling a little sick lately but she is a lot better now for our date.

I’m going to show her the world!  We’re going out this weekend.  We’ll post ALL about it on Monday, March 10, 2014 so mark your calendars to check our pages out.  You might find some interesting tidbits – you never know.

.

Again, thanks to my buddy Speedy at http://www.speedyhousebunny.com/ for helping out.  And if you get a chance, pop over and give my Nylablue at http://nylabluesmum.wordpress.com/ some words of encouragement.  I promise to be a gentlepig 🙂

Do You Ever Get that Feeling?

 You know the feeling I’m talking about.  The feeling that someone is always watching your every move over your shoulder.  You can’t quite put your hoof on it but you know they are out there.  Watching and waiting.  Mommy gets the feeling a lot too – kind of like a dejavu.

Mom was typing away writing, paying the bills – you know the normal stuff in the humans lives.  She looked up to see what was on the television.  Just in that one moment, she had that feeling like someone was looking over her shoulder.  Someone was trying to spy on what she was doing with the computer.  It wasn’t me.  I was cuddled up on her legs. I looked up though and saw.

I saw the culprit that was stalking mommy and what she was doing.  Those purr things.  I’m telling you my friends.  You just can’t trust them here at the Hotel Thompson.  Hemi has mom’s bank account number now.  He’s probably on line as you are reading this blog shopping on line and making connections to Pet-Harmony.  I just know it!

It’s the Cops

 Snorticles.  This is funny on so many different levels.  I could *so* see Hemi, one of the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson, doing this.  What am I speaking of?  That cat does look like Hemi.  I’m off to talk to him about this. So this must be what he does when mom/dad leave the house.  I see some blackmail coming in his direction.

 Happy Saturday my friends!

Dear Bacon

20130724-231049.jpg
Dear Bacon,
I just thought I would stick my head in to say hey little pig.  I read your blog every week.  Love your answers.  You’re smart for a little oinker.  If you ever want to hang out, just give me a call.  Signed Jeffery

Dear Jeffery,

WOW!  Thanks for stopping by.  You are really tall.  Do you play basketball?  I think you would be awesome in it.  Just think about the fortune and fame my friend.  I’ll be giving you a call soon to hang out.  I think we would have a ball in my magical back yard.  Do you know there are unicorns back there?  AND I think I’ve seen Bigfoot back there once or twice as well.  There’s no telling what we could find together.  Be on the look out for my call!

 

 

20130724-231115.jpgDear Bacon,
Sometimes, you just need that one place you can find that you can call all yours to get a quick forty winks.  I found mine.  Too bad for daddy.  He will just have to wear different shoes today.  Signed Shoesleeper

Dear Shoesleeper,
Hey, if it fits – you must sits.  You really kind of look comfortable all asleep there in your palace.  I mean heck, if the old lady can live in her shoe – why can’t you? Right?  A cat has his rights too in this world.  You might as well hang a sign off of those shoelaces that say, “No Vacancy” so your daddy can find him a new pair of shoes for the future!

 

20130724-231149.jpg
Dear Bacon,
What?  I’m just hanging out in my home riding my bike.  Doesn’t every dog dress up and fantasize about that old show CHiPS?  I think I’m more of the Erik Estrada character – you think?  I’ll tell you a secret but you can’t tell anyone.  These black boots are my favorites!  Sometimes when no one is looking, I like to walk around the house singing, “These boots are made for walking… and that’s just what I’ll do… one of these days these boots are going to walk all over you… come on boots!”  Ssshh- that’s our secret.  Signed Ponch

Dear Ponch,
I got nothing on this one.  You go my friend.

 

20130724-231217.jpg
Dear Bacon,
Hey ladies.  This is where you can find me every day during the week. I”m just sunning myself, getting my sleep on and advertising what you got missing in your lives.  Come around and see me if you get a chance.  Signed SuperStud

Dear SuperStud,
Well, someone is feeling confident these days, aren’t they?  I do admit, you do look well comfortable.  Hey, if you can’t brag about yourselves, who can, right? You just work it my friend and be happy.  YOLO – You only live once – go for it.

 

 

20130724-231253.jpg
Dear Bacon,
LOL – in 3, 2, 1 – the humans will be yelling for the sacred paper on a roll.  When they weren’t looking, I took it from their special place that they call the human scratch box.  They like to take their time cleaning out my box.  We shall see how they like it when they don’t have their special roll.  Insert evil purr/laugh.  Signed EvilPuss

Dear EvilPuss,
You are so playing with fire there my friend.  Even the purr things here don’t mess with the sacred roll in the human scratch box.  That is a HUGE No-No.  That’s like signing your own walking papers.  You really might want to rethink that.

Pirate Cat

 

20130624-224143.jpg

Some people have parrots and other types of birds that sit on their shoulders. Here at the Hotel Thompson, we like to do things differently. We don’t need a bird to sit on daddy’s shoulder and whisper into his ear.

NOT when you have Hemi – the pirate cat. Hemi will stand on your shoulder, purr in your ear and mock love you. And what more, daddy will let him to do it.

Really? Dad, ppsstt – Hemi is a C.A.T. He’s not suppose to be on your shoulder acting all parrot on you. He can’t learn to ‘talk’ and talk back to you… well, at least I hope not. And dad here is the biggest news flash of all – do you really want his back side so close to your face? I’ve seen what comes out that end – it’s not good. Trust me.

These animals just walk all over the humans here at the Hotel Thompson.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon,
Hello my friend.  I see you have a squirrel for a friend – thank you for liking our kind.  And, I know you secretly want to be a super pig hero and wear a cape.  Anytime you want, you can be my sidekick!  Signed Super Squirrel

Dear Super Squirrel,

You are so on!  I love the thoughts of being your sidekick.  I’ve been trying to convince mom for a while now that I need a cape.  You think you can help me a little and talk to her?

 

20130601-001527.jpg
Dear Bacon,
I don’t think my friends have any clue whatsoever that I’m not really ‘one’ of them if you know what I mean.  I love this spy stuff – what about you?  Signed RacCat Bandit

Dear RacCat Bandit,

OMP (Oh my pig!)  That is so funny.  I fell off of the couch I was laughing so hard at that picture.  You are a little spy, aren’t you?  I can only imagine some of the information you have obtained with that disguise.  Maybe I need to get a mask for Halloween this year.  It would be a hoot!

 

20130601-001537.jpg
Dear Bacon,
It’s really not as hard as it looks.  I’ve been hanging out with some ladies all week and it’s been great fun!  My next step is to see if one of them will marry me.  Do you think I have a shot?  Signed RooFlam

Dear RooFlam,

Well, first of all I think you look great and you have some amazing talent for walking on sticks. I myself could never do that.  I just don’t have the balance.  Second off, you might want to rethink your mission.  It’s bound to come out eventually that you are not what you seem.

 

20130601-001548.jpg
Dear Bacon,
Sometimes I think a picture says a thousand words.  I think this is one of those occasions.  What do you think?  Signed Pom the Comedian

Dear Pom the Comedian,

Your picture is so wrong on so many different levels but I have to admit that I laughed… hard!  And, daddy laughed… hard!  Your poor brother – I’m not so sure he thought it was so funny.  All I gotta say, it was a good one but watch out.  I’m sure I’ll be getting a picture and email from your brother in the very near future!

 

20130601-001612.jpgDear Bacon,
It’s not really fair.  I love chasing skunks.  I don’t hurt them.  I just like to play.  See what happens when you just want to play?  You get labeled for life.  I’m sure this picture is going to end up all in the family.  What’s a dog to do?  Signed I’ve Been Skunked

Dear I’ve Been Skunked,

Snorts – you poor, poor pooch.  Your humans are really funny.  I understand you wanting to play but there’s some things out there in the animal kingdom that we just leave alone.  Skunks would be one of them.  I understand your sign – almost.  What’s a douche bag?

 

 

20130601-001639.jpgDear Bacon,

It would be fun they said.  Come on out and play in nature – get some exercise.  Yeah, right.  They got me good.  I think you have the right idea. I’m going anti-nature!  Signed Tree High Five

Dear Tree High Five,

WOW – chasing that frisbee you just didn’t see that tree, huh?  I’m not laughing at you.  I’m laughing with you.  One day you will look back at this picture and chuckle.  Maybe not today.  Maybe not tomorrow.  But one day you will.  Sorry for your pain.  Don’t throw nature away yet.  Hang in there my friend and keep chasing those frisbee’s…. just watch out for trees… and mailboxes… and telephone polls… and fire hyrdrants… snorts
