Tired Bacon – Sleeping Bacon

Last night I played hard.  I mean really, REALLY hard.  After dinner, I ran through the Hotel Thompson like it was on fire!  Up and down the halls, through my room, the frontroom and even the kitchen.  I was running so hard that I was leaving skid marks and running into walls.  It happens at times.  I had to flex my piggy muscles and run like the wind.

Afterwards, I pulled my king size Egyptian blankie to the front room, in front of the couch where mom was and stretched out on it.  I had to be near mom because you know that way she could pet me and scratch my back.  It makes me feel good to know that she is close.

Mom was laughing at me running through the front room like a cannon ball.  When I tell you it tired me out – I’m not lying!  I think I stayed there on my special sheet for over an hour.  Of course, it didn’t hurt that mom was loving on me 🙂

Can you tell that I was tired from this last picture?  The look in my eyes should tell you everything – I was bushed!  I didn’t even stay up long enough to hear my bedtime story from mom.  That’s tired!

Dear Bacon

20130531-230700.jpgDear Bacon – Summer really stinks.  It’s totally hot and uncomfortable.  All I can do is stand in front of the fan and let the breeze overtake me.  I just have to do something to cool me down.  Signed Flappy

Dear Flappy – Hey pal, whatever you need to do to keep you cool I say go for it!  Momma is a firm believer in her fan in this hot summer.  Can’t we just skip over that season?  I’m all for it.  Let’s start a petition.  What do you think?


20130531-230632.jpg

Dear Bacon – Hubba hubba little man.  I find you so fascinating.  I can’t believe a pig like you is still single.  What do you say we fix that problem?  Signed I Do

Dear I Do Don’t – Not that I’m totally not appreciative or anything but I’m just not ready to settle down like that.  You’re totally beautiful and I think you will find the perfect pig one day.  Don’t give up my friend.


20130531-230837.jpg

Dear Bacon – You talk about Houdini at the Hotel Thompson a lot of different times.  I just want you to know that I think I’m more spoiled than he is.  My humans actually dresses me too.  It’s a pain in the rump area but hey it makes them laugh.  You ever think about dressing up?  Signed Prissy

Dear Prissy – First off – you look adorable in your little outfit.  Your face doesn’t *look* like you’re enjoying it but hey if the humans are happy, right?  Second off – I can be a fussy little character.  I’m not too proud to say that.  I just don’t see me as a ‘dress’ up kind of guy.  Buy hey if the mom wanted too, I would let her.  Like you said, it makes the humans happy and smile.  That’s our jobs!


Dear Bacon – 20130531-230749.jpgHave you ever heard of the Red Hat Society?  I’m a member and they have monthly meetings.  I think you need to look it up in your area and do a posting on it.  I think it would be fascinating.  Signed  Fun Times

Dear Fun Times – I’ll do that!  I’ve heard mom talk about it with her friends.  There’s also purple hats, right?  🙂 See, I do pay attention even though sometimes mom doesn’t think so.  You wear that hat with pride and look forward to a posting in the future my friend.

Bashful Hide and Seek

Bashful – he’s a good pebble.  He tries to stay out of trouble.  Sometimes it works – sometimes not so much.  Last night, we were playing hide and seek in the house.  I can’t tell you how many times I walked by the table and saw this napkin.  It never dawned on me one single time that the little fella would be underneath it sleeping.

20130601-004234.jpg

The only thing that *finally* gave him away was that he had to go to the potty.  If it wasn’t for that, he would still be under the napkin on the table hiding.  And mom/dad, they weren’t much help.  I think dad was actually the one that suggested that great hiding place.  Where’s dad when *I* want to hide, huh?  Perhaps I should hide dad’s remote control and see how he likes to hunt for things for hours at a time – snorts.

Just another fun night at the Hotel Thompson.  How was your night?

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – What’s happening pig?  So like here is the problem dude.  I think like I’m a happening cat.  I got the moves like Jagger.  I wear my hoodie.  My parents still want to treat me like a kitty – what’s up with that? Signed Rap Cat

Dear Rap Cat – Slow your roll purr thing.  You are still a babe.  You’re not a member of the group Stray Cats.

I’m not sure if you been told this but you are pussy cat, not a rap cat.  I hate to be the bearer of the bad news.

Quit trying to go all jive in front of your parents.  Save the rap when they go to bed at night.  I bet they would love to hear that in the middle of the night.


Dear Bacon – I have a small problem.  As  you can see, my parents think I’m their personal marshmallow holder.  I can’t help that my fur is thorny.  What am I to do? – Signed Thorny

Dear Thorny – Give me a minute to pick myself up from off the floor.  I’m sorry dude.  That’s the funniest picture I’ve seen in some time.  You’re parents are really original.  I know it may seem like a pain in your side – HA – but go with it.  They can rent you out to parties and such – you can make money and save for your retirement.  I say go with it and make the best out of it little guy.


Dear Bacon – Finally I have proof with this picture!  When I get in trouble, my parents put me in a corner and point their fingers at me.  What’s a kitty to do? Signed – Hands Up in the Air

Dear Hands Up in the Air – Take your hands down from the air.  Use those paws that you have and swat those fingers.  They won’t be putting baby in the corner anymore.


 

Dear Bacon – I’ve read your blogs.  You talk about bed head.  Come on pig – look at this picture.  I think I have you down on bed head.  Signed – Bed Head Extraordinaire

Dear Bed Head – You got me.  Now please go shower and fix yourself up.  You’re scaring the viewers.

Dear Bacon

 

20131208-205554.jpg

Dear Bacon – I’ve been hiding most of the day from my brother.  I ate his breakfast.  There I admit it.  I ate his breakfast.  So what.  He snoozed and he lost.  Now though, I feel like he’s been stalking me all day.  Every time I turn around, I can feel him watching me.  He’s watching me right now isn’t he?  Signed Big Trouble

Dear Big Trouble – Oh my friend.  There are just certain things in life that we don’t do.  Eating your brother’s food is one of them.  There will be something to pay for this.  You might as well just push your bowl of kibbles his way tonight to make up for it.  Trust me, with the evil look he is giving you, it might be the right move.


 20131208-205614.jpgDear Bacon – There’s a standing rule in this house whether your are anipal or human, when one is sleeping you do not wake them.  I have to go wizzle.  I’ve had this strange feeling for a LONG time.  But, as you can see kitty is sleeping on me.  If I move, she will wake.  If I wake her, she will be in a bad mood.  So I wait with this pained look on my face.  Signed Helpless.

Dear Signed Helpless – I know the feeling my friend.  Well personally I don’t know the feeling but my mom knows the feeling.  She has been in your position numerous times with one of us in her arms.  Just keep your head up and those legs tight.


20131208-205639.jpg

Dear Bacon – Who says that humans can be the only ones with teddy bears.  Here is mine.  He’s my buddy.  We go every where together.  We are playing patty cakes here in the picture.  He’s slow in catching the patterns but he will learn.  Signed Bear Times Two

Dear Bear Times Two – Hey my friend.  Nobody can say anything bad about this.  It’s totally cute!  You always have a friend with you.  Keep teaching him the patty cake song – he might just catch on soon.  Did you see the movie Ted?  It could happen!

.


20131208-205704.jpg

Dear Bacon – What?  It was Curious George and I am Curious too.  I want to know what made George so Curious.  He was totally full of fluff – I knew it.  Nothing between those ears but white fluff.  Guess he won’t be curious much longer huh?  Signed Curious Too

Dear Curious Too – Now the world knows.  White fluff is what put Curious George together.  Hilarious.  Looks like he might need some reconstruction surgery there.  Does your house have a BooBoo Facility like here at the Hotel Thompson?  If so, get him in surgery STAT.


  Dear Bacon – Am I the only dog that has a snake for a sister? I mean, I know we both have the same body type but this doesn’t seem natural to me.  I don’t think we look alike at all.  I’m so confused and a little scared.  Signed Confused Dog Brother to a Snake

Dear Confused Dog Brother to a Snake – WOW!  First off, we need to talk about you my friend.  Wipe that scared look right off of your face.  Dude up right now.  You are a MAN doggy.  Ssnnaakkee – is a girl.  You need to set up your area – start marking your territory.  Don’t let her know that you are scared of her… because personally I would be too but we are men anipals.  Show no fear.  Then work your sister to your advantage.  Treat her as such.  Most men take care of their sisters.  And in turn, they take care of YOU.  Who in the neighborhood is going to mess with YOU now?  If they do, bring your sister along.  I can assure you, you will be king of your hood.  Now, off you go to make nice with your ssiisstteerr.  Let me know how things work out for you okay.

Dear Bacon

20140111-200253.jpg

Dear Bacon – I gotta share my most funniest thing in the entire house to do.  Hang off of this magical roll of fluff!  Meows – it’s the bestest!  Have you ever tried this?  Signed Kitty Roll

Dear Kitty Roll – Snorts!  Looks down at my pot belly.  Nope.  Can’t say that I’ve ever done that before in my life.  For some reason, I don’t think this pot belly would allow it.  But you are right about one thing my friend.  That is a magical roll for the humans.  They love it!

.


 20140111-200303.jpgDear Bacon – I think everyone should show their colors and heritage.  This is me and my garb.  What do you think?  Signed Scotty

Dear Scotty – Dude, I think you look righteous in your outfit!  In fact, I could say that you rock!  I’ve gotta research my history and see what my ancestry is like.  Of course, whatever I find will look nothing like you.  You are gorgeous!

 ..


20140111-200316.jpg

Dear Bacon – There we were in the parking lot of the local Petsmart.  Mavis bet me that I wouldn’t go in the store.  Well, I showed her.  I went into the store, said hey to the cashier who gave me a biscuit and left.  Easy as pie.  Okay, maybe not.  Maybe I took more than one cookie and maybe I left a little drizzle from the excitement.  Regardless I’m a bad boy.  Signed Bad Boy

Dear Bad Boy – WOW!  So that was you I heard squealing out of the local Petsmart parking lot.  Next time remember – sometimes one has to look like a regular guy to get away.  No speeding my friend.  You may hurt someone..


 20140111-200325.jpgDear Bacon – I’m the top champion of the hide and go seek series in our area.  I thought I would share this picture that made me top dog.  Signed See Me if You Can

Dear See Me if You Can –  Oh my goodness my friend. You are the world’s best at hide and go seek.  I wonder if you can teach me some of your tricks.  They are awesome!

..


20140111-200333.jpg

Dear Bacon – My humans will get pay back from this outrageously stupid shirt they have placed on me.  I am not fat.  I am fluffy.  There is a difference.  Oh wait – is that food I hear hitting my bowl… gotta walk fast to it.  Talk Later.  Signed Puss in Shirt

Dear Puss in Shirt – Oh my.  Fat – nah.  Fluffy – sure.  Houdini goes through that all of time.  Extra fur well it does make you fluffy.  I see that.  Now you enjoying a little too much food – looks down at my pot belly – I can see that too from my prospective.  All of the time.  I say hey if it’s not broken, there’s no need to fix it.  As far as your human goes, pay back can be made… I’m sure you can come up with something.  A strategically placed fur ball in one’s human shoe comes to mind 🙂

REMEMBER friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please be sure to email me your letters and pictures.

Dear Bacon

20131208-170500.jpg

Dear Bacon – You see sometimes when a mommy and daddy get together, something as cute as me comes out between them.  They said that a little stork brought me to them.  I think it’s kind of cool and they look very much in love.  What say you my friend?  Signed Tiny

Dear Tiny – I have to agree 100% my little friend.  You are a special little tyke made up of your mom and dad who look totally in love.  Make them proud and grow up to be a wonderful kitty with lots to give.


20131208-170537.jpg
Dear Bacon – This is my life.  I was raised with these two purr things and they have been so very good to me.  I know I’m not a kitty but does that really have anything to do with the bigger picture when you’re full of love in your life?  Signed Bun Bun

Dear Bun Bun – I think you have it right on target my smart little friend.  As long as there is love, nothing else much matters.  You are one very lucky little fellow.

 


20131208-170608.jpg
Dear Bacon – I just thought I would share my picture with you of me, my brother and dad.  We are little guys.  Sometimes you just need to climb up on pop and let him carry you, right?  I read about your love/hate relationship with your human daddy.  Perhaps you should take our advice and climb on his lap and let him love you for a while?  Signed Koala Travels

Dear Koala Travels – You are so very right my friends.  Sometimes out of the mouth of babes comes the most valuable advice.

I shall take the time today and crawl on dad’s lap for some loving.  I don’t know which one will be more surprised – me, mom or dad!  Snorts.


20131208-170639.jpg

Dear Bacon – Okay I admit it.  I got a little carried away last night when the humans turned in for the night.  Somehow, the Makers Mark liquor came out, it got dressed and I wore a night cap.  I’m not sure what the order was but this is how my humans found me this morning.  Do you think I need help?  Signed Rin Tin Drunk

Dear Rin Tin Drunk – Friend, the first thing in life is admitting you have a problem.  I think we all can figure out which came first… the bottle, the sweater and possibly the night cap.  At least you got out the good stuff in Maker’s Mark – snorts.  Maybe you should contact a DAA (Doggy Alcoholics Anonymous) in your area for a little chat.


Dear Bacon – 20131208-170730.jpgI know you can’t tell from this picture, but I’m the one that runs this house.  Yep, that’s right.  All three pounds of fur reaching up from the pooch – I’m the one in charge here.  What?  You thought it was the barky thing?  Really?  What would give you that idea?  Signed Fluffy

Dear Fluffy – Snorts!  You are small, brave and in charge with a sense of humor.  I love that my little furry purr friend.  I’m a firm believer that if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.  Carry on in charge!

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks with puppy laughter!!  Oh my friends last weekend I had the bestest time ever.  First I went to my spa appointment.  There is just something so relaxing about a long hot oatmeal bath followed by a puppy massage.  Then my groomer cut me into a cute little style, dried and primped me up to look so darn cute for mommy when she picked me back up.  When mom/dad picked me back up, mom just gushed and kept giving me kisses.  She said I was her cutest little puppy.  Of course I gave her kisses too.

Then we all got into the Prius (which is awesome – I can see out all of the windows!) to drive home.  But on the way home, mom made what she called a detour.  And I have to tell you, I liked this detour thing.  Mom got me my very first ever Puppicino – thud puppy down.  That thing was fantastic!  My first taste made both of my ears go up.  Then I had to go deep down into the cup and got it all over my face.  Mom just laughed when she cleaned me up.

After I got home, mom washed my face more and I was just darn tuckered out.  Who wouldn’t be, right?  Mom said she could tell by the look on my face that I was tired so she tucked me into the big bed and laid down with me for what she called a nanny nap.  I so enjoyed that!

Yawns, I think I might still be tuckered out.  So now my friends I’m going to leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Take it away pop!

Don’t Come Knocking On My Door

Today for my afternoon nap, dad tucked me in bed with some celery and carrots and I watched The Three Little Pigs on my flatscreen.  I know it’s old school from the 1930’s but I love Mr. Disney and his movies.  This is like the upteenth time I’ve seen movie and I have some thoughts.

Let’s talk about the pig names first.  Practical Pig, Fiddler Pig and Fifer Pig.  Really?   Did you know that they even had names?  Couldn’t come up with something unique like Bacon, huh?  Ham, Sushi and Maxwell were taken?

So Fiddler Pig plays the fiddle and Fifer Pig plays the flute.  – puts my hoove to my head – how original.  They went the cheap way and made their houses of straw and sticks.  They did it quickly so they could play their lovely musical instruments all day long.  What a party that must have been!

Then let’s discuss something that’s kind of ironical.  Did anyone else notice this scene in the movie?  Do you see “Father” in the photograph on the wall?  Really?  Mr. Disney bravo to you for having such a wicked sense of humor.  Goodness, it took me almost 3 times watching to catch this.  I asked mom what did it mean?  Was that their father?  I didn’t quite understand.  Mom said that when I got older she would explain.  Translation – it’s something bad.

Leave it to Practical Pig to build his house of brick.  He tried to warn his two little brothers who wanted to play all day but they didn’t listen.  They went on with their little jamboree while Practical Pig spent the extra money and time and built for the future not for the moment.Then enter the big bad wolf.  Practical Pig tried to warn Fiddler and Fifer Pig but they didn’t want to listen.  That big bad wolf puffed and huffed and blew the house of sticks and house of straw down.  What did the brothers do?  Run to brother’s house to have him save them.  Of course, Practical Pig *always* has an exit plan.  Big Bad Wolf didn’t want to listen and tried his best to get in the house finally thinking he had a way through the fireplace.  I bet he was surprised when he dropped in for dinner and HE was the dinner!

So bottom line on this story.  Apparently this big bad wolf didn’t meet my ancestors – PigBrutus, PigSpartacus and PigDynomite. They don’t put up with much bull from anyone. They learned from great, great, great, great Uncle PiggyJohnWayne.

So, do you see the story in a different light now?  Do you understand my thoughts?  What are your views?

Dear Bacon

20130326-100117.jpg

Dear Bacon – Do you ever just have one of those days that you just can’t wait to fling yourself into your bed, the masters bed or someones bed? It was a long day for me when my master caught me in this picture. It’s hard work protecting the house, sleeping, running and grooming oneself. Signed Tuckered Tom Cat

Dear Tuckered Tom Cat – There’s not much slinging I can do with this pot belly but I have seen mom come home from the worky place and sling herself into her bed. Sometimes the day can be long and stressful. Meditate my friend.


20130326-100126.jpgDear Bacon – There’s nothing like getting up in the morning and doing that first stretch of the day. It helps to set the tone of the day and get all of the muscles waking up. Do you stretch? Signed Stretch Arm Cat

Dear Stretch Arm Cat – You can often find me stretching like that throughout the house. My favorite time is beside mom on the couch. Why? Because she laughs at me and anytime I can make her laugh is a good thing.

She says when I stretch on the couch I make stretchy sounds through my mouth. I can’t help it. It feels totally rad!


20130326-100137.jpg

Dear Bacon – Today Bacon let’s talk about cats and how intelligent *they* are in society. You’re not the only one that is smart. I have a sciene degree in cataology. Notice my theories on the chalk board behind me and take notes my friend. Signed Professor Meow

Dear Professor Meow – I’m impressed with you, your theory and your little bow tie. You go on my feline friend and teach on.

I give you two hooves up (only because if I give you four hooves up I will fall over) for your extended education.


20130326-100158.jpg

Dear Bacon – Jet power – that is where the future is in transportation. My human says it’s the black beans I had for dinner but I’m sticking with jet power! Signed Flying Kitty

Dear Flying Kitty – PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud). I don’t know my friend. I might have to side with your human on this one. I know I myself can relate to those black beans and especially cabbage! Cabbage is *always* the culprit that does ‘jet power’ for me. But it doesn’t matter how much cabbage I eat.

I don’t think there’s enough in this world to make this little miniature pot bellied pig fly! Be safe my friend.


20130326-100208.jpgDear Bacon – It all started with our daily inspirational reading last night. We discussed Moses parting the Red Sea and I was intrigued with the humans. If they can do it, why can’t I? I prayed about it and tried. Well, let’s just say the jump and first step was probably the best being camera worthy. After that, I sunk like the Titanic. Signed Wet Kitty

Dear Wet Kitty – At least you had the faith and attempted. I applaud you for partaking in the daily bread. Keep up the great work and try to stay dry my four legged friend.
