Santa Claus For REAL!

20131209-014442.jpg

Let me tell you a secret.  This weekend, mom had her iPhone unlocked and I was just looking at the pictures – yep that’s what I was doing – snorts looking a pictures.

I came across a person in her contacts that I couldn’t believe!  Mommy has the direct number to Santa Claus – thud piggy down.  So when the humans tell you that they know people that are important – it’s true.

I told Hemi and Houdini about this contact in mom’s iPhone.  They couldn’t believe it and thought it was a joke.  We called the number and put it on speaker phone.  OMP (oh my pig!).  All of our mouths fell open.  It really was Santa Claus.  We were all shocked.  Mommy really does know Santa.  We *have* to be good now.  What if she sends him pictures or calls him herself?

Just in case, I’m off to clean up my pig pen of a bedroom.  Hey, I gotta be on that good list this year.  I have a big stocking to fill!  And you still don’t believe?  Look what else I found on mom’s Facebook page – OMP!  Gotta run now.  My room needs cleaning 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving Friends!!

Happy Thanksgiving to the best friends a miniature pot bellied piggy could ever have!

20131125-100117.jpg

I hope your day is full of love, family and hugs.  And let’s not forget food.  All kinds of food!  I found another funny for today.  I hope it makes you chuckle just a bit.

I also wanted to take this minute to express what I’m thankful for.  I’m thankful for my friends here in blogville.  I’m thankful for my family.  I’m thankful for a roof over my head and a soft bed to sleep in at night.  I’m thankful for the food provided for me every day.  I’m thankful for the love all the way.

I’m thankful for the purr thing Hemi (but don’t tell him cause it will go straight to his head.  I’m thankful for the little guy Houdini.  I’m thankful for Journalist Rocky the Squirrel and all of the pet rock gang.

I’m thankful for the shoulders I have to lean on and the laps I have to snuggle on.   I’m thankful to my birth mother who gave me to my adopted mother.

And when I count my blessings, I count all of you twice!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving my friends.  Love you bunches and bunches!

XOXO – Bacon

Guess What Started Yesterday?

The running of the bulls!

WOW – Can you believe it’s already that time of the year again.  Starting yesterday and running through July 14th, starts the Running of the Bulls. Really? People really put their lives in jeopardy to run through the streets of Pamplona, Spain chased by B.U.L.L.S with HORNS. I gotta ask. Are you crazy?! This is not only for one day but it is a annual festival that starts today.

I understand it is a tradition. The first thing they do is take a statue of San Fermin and parade it through Pamplona. This saint is believed to ‘protect’ the runners as they are being chased by the mean bulls. And, it really did look festive on television. They even had musicians playing and singing. And they had people standing on balconies throughout the streets that watched the bulls chasing the humans. Now, I enjoyed the music, the singing and I could even watch.

But, this little pig doesn’t run that fast to participate in the running FROM the bulls – snorts. I would be a nice little snack for them. Shivers. And the actual bull run lasts about four minutes – but still I don’t think this oinker would have a chance.

So instead of ‘running’ from the bulls, I thought I would do it ‘my’ way 🙂

A couple of years ago, I started my own “Running of the Bulls.”  I carried my king size Egyptian cotton sheet from the bedroom into the front room. At times, mommy would hold it for me so I could run through it. You know, like she was fighting a ‘bull’ per say. She would call me a pigatador – snorts. It was fun and kept me busy for some time. Even daddy got into the game playing and would hold it up for me.

It was really fun. I’m not sure who it wore out faster – me, mommy or daddy. Even Hemi, the purr thing here at the Hotel Thompson, got into the action and would run through it. What can I say – we are so easily entertained!

This year, I think we are taking some of this fun out in my magical back yard.  If you see us out there, we are just practicing… nothing to fear yet – evil snorts!

Hemi and Daddy Bonding – Snorts

20130624-231939.jpg

To say that us animals control and walk all over the humans here at the Hotel Thompson is kind of an understatement.  Over the weekend, we all snuggled into the king size Select Comfort bed.  Hemi slept ‘with’ daddy.  Their setting is 100 – ha!  Me, Houdini and mom kind of like it a little softer.  Our setting is a 50.  You gotta love the Select Comfort!

20130624-231950.jpg

Notice Hemi’s position on TOP of daddy.  This is how he beds down.  Personally I think Hemi believes that daddy is his mattress.  He sleeps like this all of the time.  He often will reach his paw out and touch daddy on the face.  Sometimes, he will drift over for some mommy loving but we all know that Hemi is daddy’s little boy just like I’m mommy’s boy.  Humans are not the only ones that pick favorites – us animals do as well.  But to us, it’s a little different.  We know who we can wrap around our hooves and paws – 🙂 Would we do that?

20130626-075424.jpg

And you didn’t think that Hemi sleeps like this?  Just check out this bottom picture. The proof is in the picture.  He’s actually comfortable.  Touching dad’s face, his eyes closed and dreaming of chasing Journalist Rocky the Squirrel in the backyard.

But I have to ask you this – look at that paw?!  Do you understand what I mean now when I tell you it hurts when he slaps this little oinker on the fanny?  Piggy snorting with laughter!

Dear Bacon

 

   Dear Bacon – Every night I get into my giant bed, cover up and the most amazing thing happens after that.  Can you believe that my humans try to get in bed with me?  What is up with that?  Sometimes, I let them sleep with me – of course on their own side.  While other nights, I try to push them off.  I mean after all, this is my bed.  Signed Kittybed

Dear Kittybed – How dare your humans try to get into your bed.  Do they at least make the bed every day for you?  I mean heck you know you should be pampered like that.  And it is awfully nice of you to let them in your bed every once in a while.  I wouldn’t make a habit of it though – snorts.


  Dear Bacon – I read last week on Paw Time with Houdini that his football exploded all by itself in the living room of the Hotel Thompson.  Oh I can relate to that problem.  See, I was sleeping on the sofa and when I woke up my bed had exploded all over the living room floor.  Honestly, how do we survive these blow ups?  Shaking my head.  It’s hard being a dog.  Signed Bed Blow Up

Dear Bed Blow Up – WOW!  I’m surprised that you survived this blow up my friend.  Look at all of that in your living room.  I would be screaming your name to make sure you were okay.  And perhaps you need to take a sleep study my friend.  If you slept through all of that, you might have a sleeping problem for sure.  Be safe okay.


Dear Bacon – Help.  This barky thing is highly confused here at my crib.  See, that’s me on the top of *my* cat tree.  Yep, you read that right.  CAT tree.  Why pray tale is there a mutt on my CAT tree?  There is the entire floor for him to lay upon.  Get off of my TREE.  Any advice to get him down?  Signed Cats Rule Dogs Drool

Dear Cats Rule Dogs Drool – What the cream cheese is he doing on your tree?  Even I know that a CAT tree is made for purr things and not barky things.  No way!  I guess you could come down and scratch at him to get him off your tree… maybe some well placed kitty nails will make him think twice about knowing who is really in charge of the tree.  Maybe drop a couple of bombs – hey – whatever you need to do my friend… evil snorts.


   Dear Bacon – Rolls doggy eyes.  I hate this situation my friend  You gotta help me.  Okay, I admit that I was caught peeing… on the cat.  But hey the cat started it.  But the cat didn’t get caught – I did.  So I had to sit on the sofa and listen to the ‘talk’ from my humans on how not to pee on the cat.  Really?  Don’t they know that the problems all started with that purr thing being brought into the house?  Signed Dog in Trouble

Dear Dog in Trouble – You poor thing.  I do relate to this look and almost the same position on the couch.  Those darn purr things are always the vain to our existence.  I really can say that having the two here at the Hotel Thompson.  Don’t worry.  I’m sure you will think of an awesome pay back for your beloved purr thing there… call me if you need help.


Dear Bacon – I don’t understand why my humans were all up in a roar.  I was hungry.  I thought I would fix myself a sandwich.  I can do amazing things with my tongue.  I think personally they are just jealous.  They walked in and caught me in action.  Heck, I offered to fix them one too.  Signed Hungry Hungry Lizard

Dear Hungry Hungry Lizard – Oh my piggy heavens.  Shaking my head my friend.  I just don’t understand why your humans didn’t find your gesture overwhelming.  Really.  What’s a little lizard juice on their sandwich?  It’s so unappreciated for sure.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I can explain.  Really I can.  You see, I was really helping my mom out. She kept talking about how much she hated the wallpaper in the hallway.  I just thought I would help her out with it.  You understand, right?  Signed Busted

Dear Busted – I understand completely my friend.  You see, my mom was like that last year about the linoleum in the kitchen.  She talked about how much she hated it – just as imagine your mom did about the wallpaper.  One day, I used my powerful snout and helped pull up a HUGE piece in the middle of the kitchen floor when daddy wasn’t looking.  Like your mom, mine was not too happy with me in the beginning.  But in the end when she had the floor re-done professionally she told me I did a great job in pushing her to get it done.  Give your mom some time.  Surely she will see the bigger picture later and thank you.


Dear Bacon – Have you ever been so tired that you just sleep where you are?  Like in this picture, it just *hit* me out of the blue and I couldn’t move another paw.  I was just tired out.  Signed Balancing Act

Dear Balancing Act – You do have some unique powers there my friend.  I could *never* balance my little piggy body like that and sleep without fear of falling.  Although, I have been known to just tumble over in pure exhaustion… usually after chasing the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson.  Snorts.


Dear Bacon – My humans are crazy.  You don’t believe me?  Look at this outfit.  Have you ever seen something so outrageously stupid?  I’m so embarrassed.  A onesie maybe – but this covering my head/ears… help.  Signed Help Me

Dear Help Me – I get it.  I really do.  One or the other – not both in the same outfit.  But you know in a way, you kind of remind me of a giraffe.  Not that I’m hating on you.  I think it’s kind of adorable.  Maybe safe the outfit for Halloween – it’s not too far away.  Yes I think that is it.  Use that outfit to your advantage for Halloween.  Stay cool my friend and have fun.

.


Dear Bacon – OMD!  Every time I get in the car with my human dad, this is the look I get on my face.  You gotta help me pig.  My dad thinks he is the all time best driver in the world and wants to drive Nascar.  I’m telling you, you are safer in the streets than on the sidewalks with him coming down the road.  Help me!  Signed Frozen in Shock

Dear Frozen in Shock – Dude, your dad has got to be a really bad driver with that look of fear on your face.  Are you sure he wasn’t like doing a movie or something.  Priceless my friend – just priceless.  Maybe you should hide his keys next time.  Maybe you should beg your mother to drive instead.  Maybe you should say you didn’t feel up to a drive and stay home.  I know I would if my mom drove like your dad – snorts with piggy laughter.  But if you must go, buckle up and close your eyes tight.  Stay safe!


Dear Bacon –  Shaking doggy head.  I didn’t think I would end up like this but I have.  I needed to make some extra money to keep me in treats.  So, I did what every respectful dog would do. – I started a babysitting job.  I have sunk so low.  Five purr things a day – five days a week.  They are wearing me out!  They think I’m their own personal jungle gym.  Any suggestions?  Signed Sit for You

Dear Sit for You – How about a game of hide and go seek… of course inside so the little tykes can’t get into much trouble.  That way, they are off of you and hiding – hopefully for hours – snorts with piggy laughter.  Have fun my friend!


REMEMBER FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send your letters and pictures to me at my email. 🙂

Spring is Around the Corner

20130319-083317.jpgI think this says “EVERYTHING” about what I’m feeling – spring is near and around the corner.

I SO CAN’T WAIT!!  It’s time for this little piggy to come out of some hibernation and start moving again.  I miss the days of running throughout the Hotel Thompson and chasing playing with the purr things.  I just know they’ve missed me too.

And with Spring – you know what else comes – all the wonderful fruits of the season.  Oh, it makes my little mouth water so much.

Is everybody with me on this Spring thing??

XOXO – Bacon

and psstt my friends Reilly and Denny asked for a current picture of me.  This is me from a few moments ago.  I was doing what I do best – begging for some Animal Crackers from daddy – snorts.  I had just come in from my magical backyard where I was playing in the dirt – can you tell from my snout?
