Squirrels, Rabbits and Bigfoot – OH MY!

At the Hotel Thompson, we have a lot of woods in the backyard. It’s a good thing for privacy. There’s also a small creek that runs behind the property line. That’s a bad thing for the long slithery things that come out of it wanting to venture into our backyard – shivers. But, there’s other animal life back there. I’ve seen it all from my window in my bedroom.

There’s squirrels that hang out playing tree games jumping around and secretly taking our pictures for their photo albums. Sometimes they come up on the deck asking to borrow a cup of nuts. Personally, I think that Journalist Rocky the Squirrel sends over his family to sponge off of mom and dad. I’m just sayin’ – snort.

There’s also a family of rabbits that play in the woods and come into the back yard. They are fast. Last year, they were all babies and this year they have now grown up into beautiful adults.

Mom throws out bread and seed for them to eat. And, they love the clover in the back yard. There’s lots of that for their little buffet meals.

And let’s talk about frogs. Oh thud – the frogs are so loud at night! You can hear them from the creek croaking at night. It kind of calms you down a bit and it’s memorizing.

Other times you just want to hang out the back door and yell, “I’m fixing frog legs tonight, any takers?” Just piggy joking. We wouldn’t do that – PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).

And then, the other night we saw something that was unique and interesting. Mom, the ever ready camera gal, took a picture. Of course it came out blurry. I mean, come on it wouldn’t be a sighting if it wasn’t blurry, right – snort? There it was walking slowly through the back yard. It looked directly at her. I was in my room watching and it scared me so bad. What was it you ask. Are you ready for this? It’s unbelievable!

PIGGY DOWN! I was in shock. It had all of the signs of the legendary Bigfoot. Camera picture blurry, tall, hairy – it was BIGFOOT.

Then, I took another look. It had a slight resemblance to someone that I recognized. Shucks, all that fuss – my bad. It was just my dad walking through the back yard. Darn it – I was that close to being famous. Oh well, close though. I’ll keep looking. ūüôā

Happy Days – Spring

20130319-083505.jpg

Do you smell that?¬† It’s been an entire year since I’ve last smelled nature like that.¬† It’s finally SPRING!!

It’s time for the flowers to bloom.¬† It’s time for the anipals to start coming back out in the backyard and playing – I can’t wait to see my rabbits again.¬† It’s time for me to come out of hibernation and start being more active.¬† And you know what that means – driving mom and dad crazy with my antics at the Hotel Thompson – snort.

20130319-083551.jpg

Spring is a wonderful time of the year.¬† The weather is better and not so cold.¬† It’s time to start getting out and going fishing.¬† Okay – I know.¬† I gotta get outside into nature before I can start enjoying the outdoor life.¬† It’s a big backyard and it’s fenced in here at the Hotel Thompson.¬† I could actually go out there and play with the bunnies.¬† But first, maybe I need to get some boots.¬† I don’t want to step into nature or anything.

Mom says with Spring comes Spring cleaning – that part I don’t like so much.¬† Especially when she said I had to help.¬† But hey, I’m more active now so I’ll give it a shot.

Happy Spring my friends!!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Speedy

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!

Name:  Speedy

Age:  4

Location:

Web/Blog Page:  Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny on blogger and Speedy the Cheeky Rex Rabbit on wordpress for my followers there  (Be sure to pop over and say hey Рremember to tell Speedy that Bacon and Houdini sent you.)

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? ¬†Daddy petted me in the hutch I was in and Mummy was petting another rex in the same hutch. ¬†That is when Daddy picked me up for a cuddle which was very nice but he seemed sad. ¬†He then passed me to mummy for a cuddle and I knew she was like home. ¬†She smelled of home so I started to tooth purr which she commented on to Daddy. Hehehehe –

 think Mummy fell in love with me in that moment.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? ¬†I knew the moment they came back for me after they put me back in my hutch. ¬†They put me back and left. ¬†I poked my head out of the hutch and said don’t leave me but they left. ¬†But then the most amazing thing happened a little while later. ¬†They came back for me. ¬†Mummy held me giving me a big cuddle and that was the moment I knew I was home safe in her arms, ¬†After that they popped me into a carrier and drove me home.

What has been your biggest ‚ÄúOh no, now I‚Äôve done it‚ÄĚ moment so far in your home? ¬†hehehe¬†– that would be when I escaped from the kitchen and found my way into the lounge. ¬†hehehe I bit through Daddy’s Speaker Cables from his surround sound…hehehe oops!

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more ‚Äď mom or dad ‚Äď and why? ¬†Hehehe – that’s easy. ¬†While Daddy like’s to give me cuddles and sneak me extra treats, its Mummy who will do anything for me and spends the most time with me, playing, cuddles. ¬†And she doesn’t shout at me when I’m naughty. ¬† She just laughs and scolds me just a little bit…hehehe.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  A lot of humans think I am stupid with no character.  They are completely surprised that I love to play and have fun adventures and that I am very friendly. Most humans think that about all rabbits Рthat we just sit in our hutches not doing very much and just eat food all day long but they are so wrong.  Take us buns out of that environment and give us space to run and play and you get to see how much fun we can be and how affectionate we can be too!

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend Speedy ‚Äď check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon Р Bunyoga Рsigh РI highly recommend it.  Me and my friend love to do the Bun-Bun Flat position daily.  Lay on your back, feet up in the air and ears straight out.  It helps to relax all of the muscles in your body.  If you get a chance, try it.  You may just love it and rename is Pig Flat.  Signed Yoga Buns

Dear Yoga Buns РOMP.  I gotta try this position.  I think I can actually do it and like you said ENJOY IT!  Thanks for the tip!

.


Dear Bacon – A lot of times people mistake me for a towel. ¬†I don’t get it. Why would they do that? ¬†Signed Relaxed

Dear Relaxed РSnorts my friend.  I might see a slight resemblance to why they think that.  It might be due to the cute way your entire body just relaxes.  But I have to admit, it brings out that cute little nose of yours Рcarry on sweet cute friend.

.


Dear Bacon РWOW!  That was deep.  I just read in a book here that dogs like to chase their own tails.  Talk about dumb.  I had to take my glasses off and just think about that for a while.  No wonder us cats are superior to the barky things.  Signed Princess

Dear Princess – Yep, nods head, I’ve seen them do that. ¬†It’s wild to watch. ¬†What’s even funnier – seeing them ‘catch’ it. ¬†Now that is something you don’t want to miss my friend. ¬†Snorts.


Dear Bacon – Just a quick note my friend. ¬†I know your little brother wears clothes a lot too. ¬†I highly recommend it. ¬†Sometimes we get cold going naked and just need a little something more. ¬†It’s one of those things that you don’t knock until you try it. ¬†I like to dress for the occasion and have a closet full of choices. ¬†Tell Houdini the next time he is in my area to stop by. ¬†We can have tea and discuss this years fashion. ¬†Signed Merk

Dear Merk – WOW. ¬†Just WOW. ¬†I’ve never seen a… a… a purr thing wearing clothes. ¬†I can say that I see why you would feel cool and naked without clothes. ¬†And I have to admit that you make that sweater my friend. ¬†It really makes the blue in your eyes pop. ¬†I will definitely give Houdini your message and let him know to call you. ¬†I think you two can become close and tight friends. ¬†Stay warm… and dressed.

.


Dear Bacon РI like to say that not every anipal can carry this look but I know I can.  With my skin texture, my humans had me some specially made sunglasses to protect my eyes.  I think I rock them.  What do you think?  Signed Matrix

Dear Matrix – Hey, do you know Merk above? ¬†I think you two could be fast friends. ¬†And I think protecting your eyes should be number 1. ¬†Number 2 should be covering all of that skin. ¬†You wouldn’t want to get a sunburn. ¬†Stay safe!



Remember my friends that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. ¬†Please continue to send your pictures and letters to my email address. ūüôā

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – ¬†Now sometimes when people meet at the park they give hugs. ¬†Sometimes when dogs or cats meet at the park, they sniff butts. ¬†Hey, it’s what we do, right? ¬†Well we have had enough of the butt sniffing. ¬†A group of my friends have decided that hugs are the new hello in the dog world. ¬†Maybe you should join us in our new mission. ¬†Signed Hugs

Dear Hugs – That sounds like a game plan my new friends. ¬†I never got the butt sniffing thing for hello anyway. ¬†Heck, I’ve smelled what comes out of my dad’s butt. ¬†No way in this piggy world I want to sniff it to say hello. ¬†Carry on the great work and I’ll be doing my part for the cause in giving hugs not butt sniffs!


Dear Bacon – ¬†I have drawn the line. ¬†Mom always tells me I’m her little flower. ¬†Now she is trying to make me her little flower. ¬†Help. ¬†Signed Bud in Progress

Dear Bud in Progress РI know it seems weird and it is.  But you gotta think on the other paw of this.  If it makes your human happy and she is daunting on you and giving you snacks, does it really matter?  You have found the pot at the end of the rainbow.


Dear Bacon Р We are family.  Our humans wanted a Christmas card this year showing our family.  We said okay but we wanted to pose as we wanted to pose Рno help from the humans.  So what do you think?  Do you think this screams We Are Family in our Christmas Card?  Signed Family

Dear Family – Way to go my friends – Bravo! Bravo! ¬†That picture screams family, diversity, togetherness and being united as one. ¬†What more could you do? ¬†I have to ask – that picture “looks” like you all get along and are so close. ¬†Are you? ¬†Or was this a snap-this-picture-now-before-I-hurt-someone kind of picture? ¬†Cause I’m telling you, you are pulling it off. ¬†Great card – don’t forget to send me one here at the Hotel Thompson.

.


¬†Dear Bacon – ¬†We are buddies and sometimes secret hero’s. ¬†Really, this is us clowning around during the night. ¬†But during the day, we are the Pig and the Hare Hero’s. ¬†We visit children’s hospitals and bring smiles to the faces we meet. ¬†We highly recommend it. ¬†Signed Hero’s at Large

Dear ¬†Hero’s at Large – OMP! ¬†You are certainly right my friends. ¬†You are HERO’s. ¬†Not all hero’s have to wear capes or have special talents. ¬†Although I have to admit that you do have special powers of bring smiles to the faces that need it most. ¬†Carry on my cute duo!


Dear Bacon – ¬†Can you believe this? ¬†There I was sitting back, relaxing and minding my own business. ¬†My human said that he needed socks and to get out of his drawer. ¬†What? ¬†First up human, mind who you are talking to and second, you should have thought about socks before you left your drawer open inviting me. ¬†I think you should go without socks today because I’m not moving. ¬†Move me or reach around me and you may be wearing a sock over your bandage. ¬†What bandage? ¬†They bandage from the boo-boo I will leave on your arm. ¬†Carry on now and be gone. ¬†Signed Sock Keeper

Dear Sock Keeper – You know you do have a great point there my friend. ¬†They should have thought about that when they left the drawer open. ¬†Snorts – don’t do anything I wouldn’t do in that drawer.


Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. ¬†Please continue to send me your pictures and questions to my email address.
