Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – As you can see, I’m in this contraption my new humans like to call a box.  I call it a box of hell.  I mean I was okay with the humans putting me in it and taking me to their vehicle but to strap me in like the box is part of me – they will pay.  Not at first because I’m fortunate to be adopted.  But after a while… after making my new living conditions mine, they will pay.  I smell dog in this car so I do hope they have a dog and I do hope said dog is ready to be blamed for everything.  Signed Nails Out

Dear Nails Out – Oh pal.  I hate to say it but it’s almost funny to look at the picture.  Now don’t get me wrong.  I’m not laughing at your situation.  Of course I wouldn’t do that.  But the picture of a box with arms attached – oh have mercy.  I so understand the complete concept of payback.  That poor pooch doesn’t know what is coming to his digs.


Dear Bacon – Everyone keeps saying that can’t wait for winter or fall and the cooler weather.  I say no.  I like the summer.  You don’t see us anipals bundles up to go out to use the facilities.  You don’t see us anipals where boots and coats when it’s raining.  This is me from last year.  bbbrr – can’t you just feel the cold weather.  Nope. I think I’ll pass…. but I guess mother nature won’t let me.  So, it’s time to dig out my umbrella, scarf and rain boots again.  There’s nothing like trying to pee outside where water is already all over you.  Signed Special

Dear Special – You know I like the way you think my friend.  I myself am not very fond of the outdoors, especially in the elements.  Perhaps your humans can fix you a potty area off of the back door or something.  You know so you don’t get wet.  But if not, I have to say you look adorable in your fall outfit for sure.


Dear Bacon –  Hey dude.  I’m like saying to my humans that if the potential president of our United States can have a comb over, like why can’t I?  Right?  And I have to admit that like I carry the comb over so much better than that dude for sure.  I mean like for real!  This is like my look and I’m digging it for sure.  I like the close shave all except my comb over which makes me like stand out in front of everyone else.  I mean dude with that in mind, maybe *I* should run like for the president of these United States.  I think like I have as much experience as the others, right?  Would you like vote for a dude like me?  Signed Dude

Dear Dude – I think everyone in the United States should write you in when they vote.  Just your views on life and your style, that makes you stand out in front of everyone else.  Nobody can claim that you have a double making appearances.  Nobody can claim that your cold.  Nobody can claim that you are not your very own dog.  I like that in a running campaign.  I say go for it.  And remember, free treats for everyone that votes!


 

Dear Bacon – They say you can be whoever you want to be.  I’ve always wanted to be a dinosaur.  I mean who wouldn’t, right?  I’ve always roared and told my humans that I’m strong like dinosaur.  They found this horse coat and boom they knew it had my name all over it.  Now, I love wearing it.  Wouldn’t you be scared if you saw me coming your way?  You would, wouldn’t you?  Signed Roar

Dear Roar – Oh my piggy heavens!  I’m shaking with fear.  That is so awesome my friend.  I love your coat and I think you make the coat.  I think it’s awesome that your humans bought if for you.  In fact,with your coat on, you could be a superhero.  I can see it now on all the televisions and papers – “Super Roar Adventures”.  It has a great sound to it, right?  Keep having an awesome time in your coat dear friend!


Dear Bacon – I claim not fair!  My doggy rights have been violated.  Who do I need to make a report to?  My friends are buttheads.  That’s right.  I said it.  They kept telling me about a new friend they met and how we had to meet because I would love them.  That’s when they introduced me to the new friend and then stepped to the side to take a picture of me saying hello.  Buttheads.  How do I get even Bacon?  Signed Caught Sniffing

Dear Caught Sniffing – Shaking my piggy head.  I’m so glad that I’m not the only one that gets caught in these types of things.  I’m so sure that there will come a time when they forget about this incident and everything with the stars line up just right that you will get even for sure.  AND I’m thinking it might be better than this episode… maybe.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – There is always that one sibling who just never smiles at the right time or large enough for the camera.  Here we are in Summer now and we are trying to get our Christmas cards made – notice lights in the background.  That’s when Stupid doesn’t want to smile.  Finally, I had to crawl on his back to give him a little help.  Shakes my kitty head.  Do you ever have to do the same with your siblings?  Signed CIC (Cat in Charge)

Dear CIC – Shaking my piggy head.  Well I guess that’s one way to do it my friend.  Help out your brother in his smiling for the camera.  I guess you are right about getting those cards done in time for Christmas. Maybe this weekend we can all get together here to get them done in time.  But I have to ask one question my friend.  Tell me that the dog’s name isn’t really Stupid.  Please say no.  Snorts with piggy laughter.


Dear Bacon –  I really don’t get all of this Netflix and chill stuff.  I mean heck I do it every night.  So can you tell me am I doing it right or wrong?  Signed Stud Muffin

Dear Stud Muffin – Well, it looks like you are doing it right to me.  You are watching Netflix and chilling with your popcorn.  I mean heck, you even have on your house shoes.  You can’t be chilling anymore than that.  And you are watching Netflix on your computer so you can still bounce around on the internet while listening.  Nope, I say that’s it.  Go for it my friend and be happy.

.


Dear Bacon – There I was in the house walking around at midnight and I just couldn’t sleep.  That’s when my humans did the most amazing thing.  They bundled me up and took me for a drive to help me sleep.  Within minutes, I was passed out on the stick shift.  What a terrific way to be rocked to sleep.  Signed Twinkle

Dear Twinkle – Oh My Pigs!  That does look amazing and what great parents you have to think of this and to gently rock you to sleep.  That is awesome!  I would say that your humans are definitely keepers in their way of taking care of their anipals.  Just do me a favor okay – don’t drool on the stick shift.

.


Dear Bacon – My human mom said she would play fetch with me.  She told me to go get one of my play toys.  Well I couldn’t decide which one to bring back so I did what any other anipal would do – I brought them all so she could pick one to play with.  Don’t you just love it when the humans play fetch with you?  Signed Decisions Too Big

Dear Decisions Too Big – I agree.  That is the only way to play with our toys.  Bring them all out and spread them all over the floor.  That is the way we can be sure which ones we want at the time.

Dear Bacon

 

Dear Bacon – oh my dogs!  Help me. I’m a big dog. I admit that. But this time of year, will you hold my paw?  The humans here have some scary stuff they are watching on television. They left me to go to the bathroom and kitchen. Shivers. I don’t think I will make it through the month. Signed Shaky in the South

Dear Shaky in the South – I’m sorry my friend. I feel you more than you know. My humans watch this stuff all year long. And trust me. You never get used to it. No way. Might I suggest hiding under some blankets or pillows. Sometimes that works for me.


Dear Bacon – Never trust the humans. I should have known something was up. The master wanted to take me to the park. We didn’t end up at the park. We ended up at the vets office. I swear Ms Vet lady owes me a drink now. Signed Pranked

Dear Pranked – WOW!  The humans can be harsh. I’m sorry pal. I’m sure you will think of a way for pay back. The little guy here has a vets visit in a couple of weeks. I can’t wait to see what my humans do to trick him.


 Dear Bacon – I give up. These mini-me’s own me. There’s no use in fighting them until they leave for college. Any suggestions?  Signed Hands Up

Dear Hands Up – I’ve seen that look before on my moms face. When she gets it, she hangs out in a bubble bath in my bathroom. I don’t see why that couldn’t work for you. You could just lock the door – no bubble bath necessary. I wish you luck my friend.

Dear Bacon – My Halloween costume is ready. What do you think?  Meows. Signed Tuna

.

Dear Tuna – I love the way you think my friend. I think I could use that costume too.  Bravo on your creativity!

Dear Bacon – What?  Have you never seen a dog with his teddy bear before in the car?  We were on a road trip to visit family. I was cool with that as long as I had my teddy. He takes away all of the bad things. Do you have a teddy?  Signed Friends

Dear Friends – YES!  I have a teddy. Well, he’s not actually a teddy bear but a stuffed possum with a long tail. He is my bestie and sleeps with me. He taught me how to play dead. I agree that our buddies are awesome to have. Enjoy and take care of each other.


REMEMBER friends.  Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send me your pictures and questions via email.

Mommy Smartypants

My mom.  She can be really sneaky when she wants to be.  We all know that.  But no one here was more surprised than daddy when she told him something that she wanted to do.  Something that was new and adventurous.  Between me and you, personally I was done with being adventurous since being at Summer Camp last week – snorts.

Well when sneaky mommy smartypants gets a bird up your hiney (what dad likes to call it), she doesn’t play.  You know how much that woman loves Albert her Smart car.  She would zip and zap all over town in it.  The only down side to Albert was that he didn’t have much support in the suspension department.  I know this first hoof.  When mom would roll over the smallest bump, you would feel it.  The small bump could be the size of a penny, you would know about it.  And let’s not even talk about railroad tracks or bumps in the road.  One time, I thought mom was going to literally fall into the hole – shivers – that was so scary!

And of course,  the Smart car only held two humans and a pig… maybe a dog too at times.  That’s why we also had Tank the Equinox.  Mom used Tank when we had family outings with Nana or vacation.  But being that mom was the only that drives here, the economical sense of having and maintaining two cars just didn’t make sense… so she told me when she picked me up from camp.

So this is where she got the bird up her hiney.  She wanted to trade both cars into the dealership and get an awesome car that she (1) she always wanted; (2) would hold all of us anipals and Nana and (3) would financial be more beneficial to the family.  So what does she do?  She buys a new car.

 She went to the dealership, told them what she wanted and after much paperwork and running around for titles and standing her own for what she wanted, she got what she wanted.  Now do you know where I get my pig-headiness from – snorts?  And of course, mom gets things while still smiling like the Southern gal she is.  She was able to cash in 7 years of extended warranty that she didn’t use on Albert.  She also stood firm for what she wanted for Albert.  AND she was able to stand firm on what she wanted for Tank.  And of course cutting back to only one car in the family, she was able to cut her insurance in half.  AND, she was able to pocket some money for the offer on the vehicles.  That’s the best part cause she can buy me some more Animal Crackers that Scout ate at Summer Camp 🙂

So let me introduce you to our new ride – a Jeep Patriot Latitude.  Mom has named him Casper.

I know – I know Casper is white.  But she says that the blue in the car reminds her of Casper’s beautiful blue eyes.  Shakes piggy head.  My mom is so crazy!

Dear Bacon

20140719-223000-81000973.jpgDear 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.


20140719-222959-80999889.jpg 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.


 

20140719-223000-81000530.jpg

 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.


20140719-223000-81000770.jpg

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.


 20140719-223001-81001202.jpgDear 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 🙂

Trains – Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

Trains are wonderful. Think about them and visual this. Just sit and listen to them passing in your neighborhood, rumbling over the train tracks with the occasional whistling of their horn. It’s kind of relaxing. One of our favorite things when driving and getting stopped at the railroad crossing due to a train, is counting how many railroad cars are behind the locomotive. You must be thinking, “WOW – they live in the deep south if that’s their highlight!” Snorts – but really it can be interesting.

If you have children in the car, it helps with their learning in counting numbers. If it’s just you, it helps to pass the time. I was actually in the car one time with mommy and we got stopped by a train. The big train and the noise of it kept my full attention. I heard mommy counting out loud and do you know she got up to 115 railroad cars! That’s a long train!

We have a train track not too far from the Hotel Thompson. There are trains that pass through historical downtown Jonesboro often at night, usually in the whee hours of the morning. It’s very calming to wake up to this sound.

So the next time you get stopped by a train, don’t get upset. Take the time to relax and count how many railroad cars are behind the locomotive. See if you can beat 115 🙂 wink.

XOXO – Bacon
