Oh sweet friends – even in time of grief, Nellie’s mom Barb made this badge above for other anipals that have been interviewed by me here at the Hotel Thompson. We received this email yesterday when mom/dad were running around doing errands from mom’s accident several weeks ago. Mom actually cried. Do you know it is so hard in life to find true friends and we have so many here in blogville. I can imagine Nellie’s mom and all of the hurt she is going through at this time. We have been there too with the anniversary of our Mouse Girl’s passing coming up next week. The only thing that remotely helps our grieve in times like this is to know that all of our wonderful friends that have already passed the Rainbow Bridge are now greeting the newcomers. It brings tears to our eyes and hearts knowing there are so many that are leaving us but we want to remember that although they are gone, they are never very far from our hearts and memories.
So my friends that have been interviewed by Bacon, please accept this badge to post proudly on your page. Not only for Bacon but for remembering where the badge came from with love.
We miss all of our beloved anipal friends that have passed. And for the rest of the day, we would like to light this candle in their memories. We hope that you share on your blog. Much love my friends from all of us here at the Hotel Thompson ❤

Our friends from All Fur One and One Fur All really need our prayers. Forrest and his humans are having a tough time. Please visit him here and leave him a message ❤
Dear Forrest – we’ve never met in person but it seems like I’ve known you all my life. You are a brave dog – very loved with so much to give. I didn’t know what to say in your situation. I searched the internet and came across a poem that really touched my heart. I read it and cried through it with mom. We love you dude!

Dear Bacon – I need help. My humans came home from their night out and caught me in the act. I couldn’t help it. Really. There was a kitty thingy outside of the window taunting me. It got me all worked up because the only thing separating us was this window pane and stupid blinds. I think I took care of the blinds. Signed Busted
Dear Busted – WOW! You see my friend the entire thing about trying to get away with something is not messing up the something so that you get caught in the middle of it – like your picture. I see hours – if not days – of making up with your humans on this one. And really…. tell me the truth. Was the cat really worth it? He’s probably laughing at you now.
Dear Bacon – Who says my poop or farts stink? I fart the rainbow – and I have proof now! Purrs and laughs at the ‘inside’ joke. Signed Rainbow Brite
Dear Rainbow Brite – I’m actually at a loss of words with this one pal. The proof is in the carpet and the colors are vibrant. You are touched with the rainbow. Carry on.
Dear Bacon – One of my hatchlings is bigger then the normal and furrier. I think I may need to call Guinness Book of World Records. I think I might have the biggest boy on earth. What do you think? Signed Tired Mom
Dear Tired Mom – Somehow, and I may be wrong, but I don’t think that is your baby. I think perhaps if you look closer, you will see *your* baby next to you. Look to your right.. a little bit more. Now you see your chick that looks like you? Now looks at your “big baby”. See how different he looks? In fact, I would go as far as to say that he might not chirp but may bark instead. Go ahead, poke him a little to see. Test my theory my friend. I think you’ve been played by a pooch.
Dear Bacon – It’s so hard to find good help these days. I hailed a taxi and got this ridiculous slow guy. Doesn’t he know it’s all about speed? Dude I hope he charges by the mile and not the time – I would owe a fortune! Signed Hare
Dear Hare – I hope you packed a lunch, a book and perhaps your cell phone. You can probably get a lot done by the time you get to your ‘destination’. Good luck with that and don’t forget to tip.
Dear Bacon – Sometimes when the wife gets mad at you, you just know she’s mad. Take for instance this picture. We were outside this morning watching the sun came up. I might have said something stupid. I’m thinking at least the wife did cause the next thing I new she was telling me to kiss it where the sun doesn’t shine. Why? Can you explain women to me? Signed Paw in Mouth
Dear Paw in Mouth – There are no words or instruction manuals my friend. As someone smart once told my father, “You can be right in your relationship or you can be happy. You can’t be both.” Those my friends are words to live by. I think you have a job to do now. 🙂
Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without your letters and pictures. Please keep sending them to me 🙂

I found the end of the rainbow!
Look closely – you will see my pot of gold. I don’t see the leprechaun so I’m thinking it’s free access. But unfortunately, when we got close the gold disappeared? Mother Nature – why do you have to be so mean to this little oinker? I just wanted to roll around in all of that gold. I just wanted to feel what it was like to be rich – even for a few minutes.
Can’t you help a pig out? Snort oink XOXO – Bacon

Okay, I have to start first by saying Happy Monday. I hope everyone had an awesome weekend. Second of all, it’s hot. H.O.T. I do not like the heat. Shakes head – it’s just not for me. I get questions at times about my ‘magical’ backyard and what it looks like. I thought I would kill two birds with one stone. You ask how? Looking at cold pictures makes me feel cooler. I’m going to share some snow pictures of my kingdom from a while back. Tell me that this backyard doesn’t look mystical and magical.
Now, look at this picture. It was snowing in it and although you can’t really *see* the snow, you can see the woods beyond. Doesn’t it just look inviting for all of the creatures that live back there in that paradise?
Can you understand now about that magical place back there in the woods? The tall trees, all of the over growth that might happen in the warmer months. In the cooler months, it just looks mysterious.
There’s really no telling what lives back there. I still say to this date that I’ve seen Bigfoot back there. I know I’ve at least heard his grunts!
And I’ve told you before about mom’s
obsession liking of the mouse that wears gloves – that Mickey Mouse. He’s even in the back yard on the back deck. From this picture, you can see how much snow we had back there. Doesn’t it make you shiver just a bit? I already feel so much better just looking at this picture.
Have I said that I hate heat?
I thought I would throw this in for our barky friends 🙂 This is Honey Bear. Honey Bear was a chow mix. She was so loving, very sweet and very kind. She lived at the Hotel Thompson – see I told you we had a zoo here – snorts.
She has since gone over the rainbow to animal heaven. Wasn’t she beautiful?
And I saved the best for last. Now you can tell how far the
obsession idolization craziness fondness goes for that little mouse. Go ahead, check out the Hotel Thompson.
When you are done laughing – snort – tell me that picture doesn’t cool you down a couple of degrees. There’s nothing like snow in the summer – right?
And, after looking at these pictures of nature, do you understand why I’m an inside piggy?
Happy Monday my friends! XOXO – Bacon

I’ve been saying that my backyard is a mysterious and wonderful place full of woods and creatures of the unknown. It should have magical unicorns that poop the rainbow…. not slithery things without fur that run around hissing at people that cross its path.
This weekend, I looked out my window and finally saw this special creature. I swear it winked at me. Then just to make it more special, it pooped the rainbow before it ran back into the woods.
See, I told you I had a mysterious back yard full of woods and whimiscal creatures. 🙂
