Dear Bacon – Sometimes I smell things. And then I see things. No, i’m not a ghost. You see it seems like the yard next to me has it going on with Stacy’s mom. She’s always grilling and hanging out near the pool. I just want to go over and play. The other day, the laughter and the smells were so wonderful. I stuck my head under the gate to see what was taking place. I wasn’t really stuck but I acted like it to get everyone’s attention. They came to the gate and invited me over. What a party! Signed Pup of the Party
Dear Pup of the Party – Hey dude, it sounds like you had the plan for the party. You got an invite – I knew you would with that cute little grin. Now go and play like a good fellow – tell Stacy’s mom I said hey.
Dear Bacon – My master likes to play in the yard and work the ground for a garden. Rolls my doggy eyes. I’ll help to a certain point – especially when he is planting the watermelon. Who doesn’t love watermelon, right? This is me helping my master out by holding his tools. And I always say safety first – wear a hat to keep the sun out of your face. Signed Garden Patch
Dear Garden Patch – Hey my friend I like the way you think. Maybe your master should give my mom some lessons on growing watermelons. I love those big balls of wonder. They are so tasty – I even like eating the rind. Licks piggy lips. Now look what you have done. My miniature pot-belly is rumbling for the hungry of a watermelon. Maybe its not too late in the stores for mom to pick me up one? I love you being a helping paw. I think the humans could use more of them. Take care my friend – happy gardening.
Dear Bacon – You *always* have that one sibling that can’t keep their tongue out of your ear. Purrs in aggravation. Dory has been ‘grooming’ my ear now for twenty minutes. Can you please make her go away? If I screech at her, she’ll run to mommy that I’m not playing nice. Girls – eeww. Signed Marlin
Dear Marlin – Girls. That’s all you had to say my friend. You can’t live with them and you definitely can’t live without them. You have nerves of steel to let your sister Dory bother you for that long. Hopefully, it will be over soon. If not, perhaps you can stretch and tell her you need a bathroom break. Just a thought!
Dear Bacon – I am not amused. Really, I’m not. The human insisted that I needed a bath. I could have done my own thank you very much. But no – the human wanted to give me one. Help me. That’s all I gotta say and I’m thinking my look says it all. Signed Cat in a Shower Cap
Dear Cat in a Shower Cap – Well, wait a minute I need to get a straight face for this, you look all nice and clean. How ironical that your mom picked out a Tweety Bird towel for you. It’s kind of fitting. And that shower cap – OMP – perfect. No sense in getting water in those cute little perky ears. Go with it my friend.
Dear Bacon – Some people use dowsing rods to find paranormal activity. I don’t need those. Some people even use a sixth sense to find paranormal activity. I don’t need those either. Heck, I don’t need to find anything paranormal. I just need to find food. And let me tell you, with these ears of mine I can find all of the food I want. They lead me and I follow. There’s much to appreciate in letting your ears lead you. Signed Food on the Run
Dear Food on the Run – I say let it be my friend – let it be! Lead on to the food and pig out!
REMEMBER friends. Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to send me your pictures and questions via email.
