Dear Bacon

20130724-233549.jpg

Dear Bacon –  What?  Who are people to judge?  There I was walking in the woods minding my own business.  That’s when it crossed my path.  It was so huge.  So ugly.  So mean looking.  Shivers to Smokey the Bear.  This thing was huge.  What can I say?  Even bears hate spiders.  They are evil little creatures.  Are you afraid of those eight legged freaks too?  Signed Sitting on Top of the World

Dear Sitting on Top of the World – I agree with you whole heatedly my friend – SHIVERS!  To be so small and somewhat innocent looking, those legs and eyes set me off every single time.  They are a wicked bunch who think the entire world is out to get them.  In thinking such, Yes.  I can admit it.  I’m so afraid of them. Heck we had one outside our front porch here at the Hotel Thompson that was so huge that it could carry me off.  Is there any room up there for me too?

Dear Bacon –  I’m just trying to set the record straight my friend.  Not all of my kind is mean or aggressive.  That’s how the bad owners try to make us feel.  Take for instance me – I’m full of love and kindness as you can see by my friends.  I love everyone and would not hurt not a soul.  Signed Love Actually

Dear Love Actually – Bravo my friend.  You make a great example in setting everyone straight.  We are only as our humans are.  Full of love and life shows the kindness in your humans – just like mine.  We wouldn’t hurt anyone… except for maybe licks and kisses.  Keep up the great work!


20130724-233639.jpg Dear Bacon –  It’s time to have a talk with my master.  After balancing the budget for him, there are some cuts to be made.  I think we should start in his food budget and see how he likes it for a change.  What do you think?  Signed Bulldog Accounting

Dear Bulldog Accounting – I think you may be on to something my friend.  If we cut their food budget and the things they enjoy, they might see the light when it comes to cutting our food supply and the things we enjoy.  Great strategy.  Let me know how it works okay.


20130724-233648.jpg Dear Bacon – I am ready for the battle.  I will protect and serve you my oinker friend through thick and then.  I have my sandals and sword and will travel for your safety.  Signed Warrior

Dear Warrior – Aaww – that’s a great friend that would pick up, travel to my side and protect me through thick and thin.  You are such a great and brave warrior.  But in these parts here at the Hotel Thompson, I don’t have much to worry about.  Not really.  I think most days all I do worry about is whether or not tonight I’m having a salad or side dish from mom/dad’s dinner.  That’s the highlight of my worries.  You see, I have it made here at the Hotel Thompson.  I know that.  I say your talents and bravery should be for say a woman of your kind… that way you can win her heart forever every day together.  What do you think?  Keep me posted because I think personally any woman would be honored to have you at her side – her shining knight hero.


20130724-233715.jpgDear Bacon –  Roar!  I’m a bear.  I’m a fox.  I’m a dog.  Listen to me ROAR.  Barks!  No not really.  You see I am a dog.  However, I look like a fox or a bear.  Neat huh?  My humans love that about me.  At first people are like WOW – look at that bear.  Then they learn that I’m a poochie.  Then they are like aaaww isn’t he cute?  I’ll take it – I’ll take all of the attention I can get.  Right? Signed PandaFoxPooch

Dear PandaFoxPooch – I think that’s awesome!  You can have the best of three different worlds.  Just think of the tight spots you can get out of with your multi-talents.  Too cool my friend.  And you have the entire package – the looks, the coloring and the roar and barking.  Carry it with pride!


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

Dear Bacon

20140112-003450.jpgDear Bacon,

Have you ever had one of those moments when you just want to pull the covers over your head and stay in bed?  Signed Sleepy Kitty 

Dear Sleepy Kitty,
Oh my friend.  I have those moments for sure.  There’s no reason why you can’t just do that.  Stay in bed for a bit longer and sleep.  The day will be waiting for you when you get up.

Dear Bacon,

I think for the Olympics this year, they need to have bunny jumping.  I’ve been practicing all of my life.  Don’t you think it would be awesome to watch?  Signed BunBun

Dear BunBun,
I think it would be totally fun to watch.  I would be glued to the television watching you scale those poles.  You got some really get thrust in flying over them my friend.  I would definitely give you a score of 10!  Keep flying my super hero!

Dear Bacon,

I know it’s cold to you and I’ll tell you it is for us as well that live outdoors.  But I thought I would let you in on a secret.  When it’s really cold and I think I can’t go on, I close my eyes tight and dream of somewhere warm.  I imagine the heat hitting me all over my body and it feels so toasty warm.  The next time you are cold, try it and see how you feel.  Signed Rabbit Muse

Dear Rabbit Muse,
You may have something there my friend.  I will definitely remember this and do it the next time I am cold.  You try to stay warm out there.  If it gets too bad, look me up.  I’ll gladly let you in over night 🙂

Dear Bacon,

They say that after you have been with your humans for a while, you start looking like each other.  I think my human has rubbed off on my slightly. I’m cool with that.  You should see my human.  He says I’ve rubbed off on him as well  Signed Domguise

Dear Domguise,
WOW.  That’s all I gotta say.  If this is what has happened to you, I can only imagine what your human looks like.  You do make the look though my friend.  Really, you do.  Take care.

Dear Bacon,

Don’t let my size and cute looks fool you.  I’m one crazy and tough quack.  This is a deadly beak and I can take care of myself.  Whatcha looking at pig?  Signed Duck Off

Dear Duck Off,
Hey, no problems here my friend.  I know when I’m up against a touch quacker.  I think it’s in your beady eyes that you mean business and will not put up with any crap from anyone.  Shivers – you scare me.  You really do.

Piggy Therapy Is Over – Surprise!

It’s been a long battle with my piggy therapy. I’ve cried. I’ve shared my deepest feelings. I’ve laughed. But at last, my therapy is over. I’m not going to lie. It was hard – really HARD – coming to grips with my anti-nature status.

See, I’ve never really been ‘outside’. What you’ve never done, you are afraid of doing. I was a runt so my caretakers at that time took me inside of their home and bottle fed me. I stayed with them until the time my mommy adopted me at three weeks. And of course, I was too small to roam the great outdoors at that time – I weighed only ONE pound. Hard to believe huh?

So therapy involved baby steps. First going to the back door. I knew something was on the other side of the door – I could smell nature. Then, the door got opened and it was just me and nature with nothing in between. I could watch Journalist Rocky the Squirrel playing in the back yard with all of his family. I could see the rabbit family playing and eating. I could hear the birds singing their songs. This took several weeks to overcome knowing there was nothing between us but air.

Then, mommy persuaded me onto the deck – of course with food. Darn this belly!

Then, it was the final step into nature and the grass. So, I pigged up and took the step.

It wasn’t easy. The grass felt weird under my hooves. The smells of nature was overwhelming. The grass had just been cut and had a strong smell. But I continued to pig up and venture around the back yard of the Hotel Thompson. It really wasn’t that bad… but it wasn’t that great either. None of the stuff in the yard was familiar to this little oinker. My television, my air conditioner and my toddler bed were no where to be seen!

But I ventured on until it hit me. I *had* to go potty. I looked up at mom with this fear in my eyes. My tail was shaking. She knew what I needed to do. She told me to go ahead. What? Outside? Really? So I got in position – legs stretched out, tail straight up and whizzed… right there in the back yard for God and everyone to see. WOW – What a feeling of exhilaration. Mom praised me and laughed – I think I might have actually smiled back at her.

I admit it – it is really an experience outside. Do I want to do it again? Can’t really say right now. I’ve done it. I can now cross this off of my bucket list. I have stepped out and into nature.

Aren’t you proud of this little piggy?

Squirrels, Rabbits and Bigfoot – OH MY!

At the Hotel Thompson, we have a lot of woods in the back yard. 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 back yard – 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. 🙂
