Squirrels, Rabbits and Bigfoot – OH MY!

At the Hotel Thompson, we have a lot of woods in the backyard. 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 backyard – 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. ūüôā

Dear Bacon

20130618-013318.jpgDear Bacon,
What? Don’t hate. You know you want a hat just like mine so you can play outside with it. Right? Signed Scooter

Dear Scooter,

Yeah, sure. I would absolutely LOVE to have a hat like yours to wear outside and make the funny thing on top go around and around Maybe if it was real windy, I could fly. I like the sound of that! So, yes two please my friend ūüôā


20130618-013334.jpgDear Bacon,
This is just me telling my friends on how to get more seed and nuts from the humans. Any suggestions for us? Signed Cute as Can Be

Dear Cute as Can Be,

Well you can also take tips from Journalist Rocky the Squirrel. He knocks on our back door frequently asking for a cup of nuts for him and his family. Mom even throws leftover bread out to them to help them out. You know, you do what you have to do. This economy has hit us all! Take care my friends. If you are ever near the Hotel Thompson, knock on the back door. ūüôā

Dear Bacon,
I’ve read about your adventures in your magical back yard. Now this is what *I* consider a magical back yard… with drink in hand! You’re mom promised you a pool. Make her pay up pal. Signed Simple Puss

Dear Simple Puss,

I like the way you think my friend! My mommy made a lot of promises to get me outside. Although its only happened once so far, I think I need to make her pay up with one of the promises being a pool. Do you think I would be pushing it to be able to lay in a chair with a drink and food like you have?


 

20130618-013414.jpgDear Bacon,
I love to play music. I can bang that keyboard with the best of them. This is me practicing, “Unleashed Melody”. It’s a sad and soothing song to us pooches. Have you ever heard of it? Do you play any musical instruments? Signed Wolfgang Pooch

Dear Wolfgang Pooch,

You do have some talent – way to go my talented young friend. I haven’t heard of that song yet but I will be sure to Google it on the internet and listen to it. I know it has to be amazing! As for this little piglet’s talent. Let me see…. I’m thinking…. mommy says I rip some good ones… but I don’t think she’s referring to a musical instrument for some reason ūüôā

I’ll keep thinking about that answer. Take care and maybe we shall see you soon in the Hollywood lights!


20130618-013437.jpg

Dear Bacon,

Don’t even say it. I know – I know. Yo Quiero Taco Bell. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s really funny. Ha Ha. My humans think it’s funny to dress me up as a taco. How would they like it if I dressed them up like a hot dog? BOL (Barking out loud)! Signed TB

Dear TB,

First off, tell me they didn’t name you Taco Bell – TB for short. Now that would be funny. Oh, I’m sorry. But look on the other hand. You are cute. AND, I bet if they took you to a Taco Bell in the drive thru, you would get free food. Free food – that’s good, isn’t it? Be proud little guy. Wear it with pride.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon Рssss safety first is what I always hiss.  My human friend sss says the same thing.  You always buckle upsss the important things in your life when you get into the car.  Anipalsssss are no different.  Remember that my friend Рssss safety first.  Signed Mr. Slithers

Dear Mr. Slithers – Gulps – of course. ¬†I agree strongly with you safety first. ¬†That’s why I would *always* let you ride shot gun up front with the human –¬†always. ¬†In fact, I would go as far as saying I would always let you go with the human period. ¬†I’ll just pass on this ride. ¬†I get car sick at times anyway. ¬†Safe travels to you and yours. ¬†Gulps and slowly backs out of this letter.


Dear Bacon – My human must die. ¬†There it is. ¬†Plain and simple. ¬†He put this stupid contraption on me and now I look like a cat. ¬†Really?! ¬†A cat? ¬†That’s as creative as you can get my human? ¬†Just wait until you go to sleep and you will go to sleep sometime. ¬†Signed Jax

Dear Jax РOh my piggy heavens.  Dude, your owner is very brave to dress you up like that and then to take you out in public and THEN to take your picture.  Clicking my tongue.  Yes you are right.  He must pay tonight.


Dear Bacon – That’s it. ¬†We are ready. ¬†It’s bad enough that we have cats chasing us around the house and inside of the house. ¬†Now when we go out in the field, squirrels are trying to get us too. ¬†This means war. ¬†Bring on the hamster troops. ¬†Cats and squirrels are going down! ¬†Signed Troop End of Destruction

Dear Troop End of Destruction – Pardon me sir but I must ask. ¬†Where do you find those cute little guns and fatigues?? ¬†Ok, I know you are trying to look tough but squeals with piggy excitement. ¬†You are just way too cute to be making any havoc out there in the killing fields. ¬†Can’t you solve this war without tragedies? ¬†Come on. ¬†I bet ya’ll can talk this out in a peaceful manner. ¬†Sure ¬†you can! ¬†I have faith. ¬†I can call Dr. Phil for you. I’m sure he can get you on the show.


Dear Bacon – There I was playing with Mr. Spock and all of a sudden his leg started to spontaneously shoot out white stuffing. ¬†I’m not sure what happened but I knew we needed a medic STAT. ¬†That’s where I jumped in with my scrubs and got to work patching up Mr. Spock. ¬†He didn’t feel a thing during the operation. ¬†And look, his leg will be fine in a couple of days. ¬†It was a close call indeed Mr. Spock. ¬†Signed Dr. Kirk

Dr. Kirk РI know that was a tough call my friend.  Thank goodness nothing beamed you up.  That would have been a tight predicament to be in and oh thank goodness you were on call for the surgery.  Can you imagine how Mr. Spock would look if you had to amputate his little leg?  The horror!


Dear Bacon – I have got to quick partying all night with the dogs in the neighborhood. ¬†I’m not sure what people are putting in their commodes anymore. ¬†We all went out for a few drinks and the next thing you know, I woke up like this. ¬†Of course my friends took pictures to blackmail me with in the future. ¬†I’m not sure what happened or what her name is. ¬†I need help. ¬†Really I do. ¬†It was a ruff situation this morning doing the walk of shame. ¬†Signed Fido

Dear Fido – Oh dude. ¬†I would say you need therapy. ¬†You gotta stop drinking the strange stuff in commodes. ¬†You just never know what might be in there. ¬†You don’t want a repeat of this night. ¬†Oh my goodness. ¬†Are you going to call her at least?

Dear Bacon

¬† Dear Bacon – Okay I admit it. ¬†I’m in a predicament… some would say stuck between a limb and another limb. ¬†I blame it on these pesky squirrels that seem to have taken over my yard. ¬†I was chasing¬†showing one how to get out and he jumped in the tree. ¬†I followed. ¬†I know you have Journalist Rocky the Squirrel that lives in your backyard. ¬†Any suggestions on keeping the little rats squirrels out of my kingdom? ¬†Signed ¬†Hanging

Dear Hanging – Well you do look kind of uncomfortable there my friend. ¬†The first thing is to get to know those squirrels. ¬†I assure you they are not as pesky as you think. ¬†Really – I assure you. ¬†Make friends – you will be surprised what they will do for you think. ¬†Journalist Rocky the Squirrel and his clan keep out the other unwanted dogs and purr things from my kingdom ūüôā


Dear Bacon – Honestly this is *not* what it looks like. ¬†I wasn’t kicking anyone. ¬†I wasn’t having a momentarily lapse of judgement. ¬†I wasn’t going crazy. ¬†You’re going to laugh when I tell you what I was doing. ¬†Really – are you ready? ¬†I was learning how to swing dance. ¬†Yep, swing dance. ¬†It works much better with a partner but I was practicing my moves. ¬†What do you think about that little pig? ¬†Signed Swinger

Dear Swinger – I am highly impressed my friend. ¬†Really I am. ¬†That is such a hard dance to learn and I’m impressed that you are doing it. ¬†If my hips could move like that, I would so join up for lessons with you.


Dear Bacon – ¬†I’m sitting in a pan I am. ¬†It’s the pan for the dog who is a hog (no offense). ¬†He chases me and tries to sting me like a bee. ¬†He no eat until he kisses my feet. ¬†Signed Seuss Without a Rhyme

Dear Seuss Without a Rhyme – Snorts! ¬†No offense taken. ¬†I get it. ¬†You and the dog are frenemies. ¬†You keep your enemies close to you to know what they are up to – usually no good. ¬†Instead of sitting in his bowl, perhaps hide that huge bowl. ¬†No bowl to fill, no food to eat and you can act all innocent like you don’t know what they are talking about when they ask what happened to his bowl. ¬†See where I’m going with this? ¬†Cause you know after a while, it’s going to get boring sitting in an empty bowl. ¬†Unless nature calls… then you have something to fill.


Dear Bacon – I’m telling you, I’m innocent! ¬†I got this pillow off of the master’s bed. ¬†He uses it every night and I thought it would help me sleep too. ¬†I went to sleep and then the next thing I knew the master was home asking me what I did. ¬†Really, I did nothing but sleep. ¬†The pillow must have exploded all by itself! ¬†Signed Innocent

Dear Innocent РI can see by the look on your face that you are not guilty at all.  Nope.  That is not the look of guilt.  I do believe you.  I think you were sleeping and minding your own business.  What probably happened is that maybe your inner dog came out while you were sleeping during one of your dreams.  I know this first hoof because I have a deviled ham side that comes out from time to time.  Shivers Рand trust me my friend.  He is a little stinker.  So, off you go now to explain that to your master.  I know he will just have to understand.


Dear Bacon Р Oh dear mercy to the heavens.  Please help me.  My humans have went over the deep end.  Signed Fill in for Nicki Minaji

Dear Fill in for Nicki Minaji – Hubba – Hubba. ¬†Look at you my sweet friend. ¬†I think you got the looks and the skills to pull this off. ¬†I wouldn’t be upset with your humans – I would tell them that if they are going to dress you up like Ms. Minaji, then they have to treat you like the star she is!

REMEMBER FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. ¬†Please remember to send me your pictures and letters to my email ‚̧

Dear Bacon

  Oh my friends.  Every now and then as anipals we get caught with that look.  You know the look of being busted in mid flight Рsomething like being stuck between a rock and hard a place.  You know stuck in the headlights kind of look.  These are all letters this week with that look.  Hope you enjoy.


¬†Dear Bacon – Help! ¬†I need some solid advice on not getting caught. ¬†I know. ¬†I know. ¬†I can’t help it. My parents went to answer the front door. ¬†I just happened to be sauntering by the kitchen where I smelled something delicious. ¬†I didn’t get busted getting some tasty morsels off the table. ¬†My humans said “this look” is what busted me. What say you? ¬†Can you help me out? ¬†Any tips? ¬†Signed Food Buster

Dear Food Buster – Oh my friend. ¬†I think ALL of us get caught with this look from time to time. ¬†I still say that if the humans didn’t catch you with your paw on the table, how can they incriminate? ¬†I say tell them your stomach rumbled at the time of inquisition. ¬†Yeah, that should work. ¬†No picture – No busted. ¬†That’s my story and I’m sticking to it – you should too ūüôā

 


¬†Dear Bacon – There I was safely in the confines of my home snug deep in the ground. ¬†That’s when I heard the biggest commotion. ¬†Two squirrels were fighting and calling each other names that I have *never* heard of right in the middle of broad daylight. ¬†Can you believe that? ¬†Do you ever hear Journalist Rocky the Squirrel get into these kind of confrontations? ¬†Signed In Awe – P.S. ¬†What is a pesky¬†vermin?

Dear In Awe – I say just back down into your home and ignore these fellows. ¬†Apparently they didn’t listen to their parents about respect and fighting. ¬†And Journalist Rocky the Squirrel has never acted with such behavior. ¬†Nothing comes from his treetop home except sweet whistling. ¬†Ask for pesky vermin – don’t you worry about that. ¬†That is something your little cute self is definitely not. ¬†Take care of you!


 Dear Bacon РThere I was pondering on my plant, sunning myself, nibbling here and there and trying to blend in with my environment.  I turned around and there was the neighborhood cat.  Oh my lizards РI almost wet myself before going completely still.  I almost became a MEAL Рcan you believe that?  Thankfully I was blending in or surely that pesky kitty would have taken me home to their master.  Have you ever had a close call?  Signed Feeling Green

Dear Feeling Green – WOW – that was a close call my friend. ¬†I have had a couple of close with calls some big dogs in the neighborhood. ¬†I’m right there with you that they almost made me make water down my leg too. ¬†One can never be too safe. ¬†Be careful my friend!


Dear Bacon – They should tell you before you jump in the water that it is freezing. ¬†Oh my fleas! ¬†What were they thinking? ¬†Bbrrr – It may not be cold outside but jumping in the water first thing in the morning is highly unlikable for me. ¬†I don’t think I’ll ever be able to wizzle again – barks! ¬†Signed Shrunken

Dear Shrunken – Snorts and oinks my friends. ¬†Never fear. ¬†The feeling is only momentary. ¬†Daddy does it all of the time… then again that could account for why mom/dad don’t have kids. ¬†Never fear though – snorts.


¬†Dear Bacon – Really? ¬†You think you have strange humans that go out unattended and get in trouble? ¬†Mine don’t need to go out at all to get in trouble. ¬†I hope they do realize that this means war in making me look like an idiot. ¬†I think I will strategically place this beak somewhere on my master when he sleeps tonight… perhaps even pulling on the elastic for a certain gotcha is called for. ¬†What do you think? ¬†Signed Chick

Dear Chick – Oh My Piggy Heavens! ¬†Shakes oinker head. ¬†Yes my friend. ¬†I agree wholeheartedly that you do need some payback on this choice of ‘fun’ from your humans. ¬†What were they thinking? ¬†And yes, a pop of the elastic should go far. ¬†Maybe even follow that up with a little something-something in one of their shoes. ¬†I’m just sayin’. ¬†Stay safe my friend.


 

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

Dear Bacon

20140330-184102.jpgDear Bacon,

If it’s good enough to put the crying thing in to settle them down, why can’t I get in it too? ¬†It seems like the screaming miniature human gets a lot of attention in this contraption. ¬†I don’t seem to be getting the same kind. ¬†Why? ¬†Can you explain that to me? ¬†Signed Dogsad

Dear Dogsad,

Aaww – you poor thing. ¬†I’m really sorry that you feel left out. ¬†I really am. ¬†Right now though, your humans are going through a lot with the small human. ¬†This will pass when they don’t have to be so fussy with them. ¬†You just be patient and stay cute my friend.

.

20140330-184112.jpg

 Dear Bacon,

This means WAR! ¬†There I was hanging out on the sofa after a really rough day of chasing the mailman and squirrels. ¬†I was minding my own business, had my feet popped up and was enjoying a nice glass of 2012 Francis Ford Coppola Pinot Noir. ¬†Then the lights started flashing. ¬†My dad took this picture of me and put it all over the internet – he’s even talking about Christmas cards?! ¬†I will be ruined! ¬†What can I do? ¬†Signed Sparky

Dear Sparky,

Give me a second friend… snorts and squeals ridiculously loud in a paper bag. ¬†Okay, I’m back. ¬†Breathes in to get my bearing. ¬†What you need to do Sparky is get a hold of that camera. ¬†Delete the picture is tops. ¬†Then you need to get on the human’s computer and start deleting. ¬†I would wait until the humans all asleep and then pounce into action.

.

20140330-184124.jpgDear Bacon,

If you’re happy and you know it, throw your hooves in the air. ¬†If you’re happy and you know it, look so cute. ¬†If you’re happy and you know it then your face will surely show it. ¬†If you’re happy and you know it, throw your hooves in the air! ¬†Signed Cute as a Lamb

Dear Cute as a Lamb,

I’m off now to throw my hooves up in the air! ¬†You look as adorable as well me! ¬†Have a great one my friend and thanks for sharing!

.

.

20140330-184139.jpgDear Bacon,

When the humans asked me if I wanted a pancake and I said yes, this is not what I meant.  I wanted a pancake to eat not wear.  What in the world were they thinking?!  Signed Panbunny

Dear Panbunny,

I could teach you a trick with that pancake sitting on your head my friend.  My daddy taught me how to flip it off of my head and into my mouth.  You can do it РI know you can!  Happy eats.

.

20140330-184148.jpgDear Bacon,

SQUEAL! ¬†Look what I made! ¬†Mini-me’s! ¬†Aren’t they just too cute?! ¬†Signed Surprised

Dear Surprised,

They are totally adorable my friend!! ¬†So very cute. ¬†They look just like you… well except for the bright eyed, bushy tailed, surprise look – snorts.

Dear Bacon

20131113-093216.jpg Dear Bacon,

Leash training. ¬†Well, it sucks. ¬†I can’t go too far without the human deciding that I shouldn’t be that far. ¬†A pig has to have his freedom! ¬†That’s what I say. ¬†What about you? ¬†Signed Gotta Run

Dear Gotta Run,

Poor little guy. ¬†Mommy *tried* to leash train me. ¬†Let’s just say that I wasn’t a leash kind of pig either. ¬†I’m sure with more practice, I would have adjusted but she didn’t have the will power – snorts. ¬†Look on the other hand my little friend, they are just trying to watch after your safety. ¬†Consider it a gesture of love. ūüôā

.

20131113-093238.jpgDear Bacon,

HA! ¬†This will make you think twice about stomping in that puddle outside again won’t it? ¬†I just had to share. ¬†You never know where my kind might jump out at you. ¬†Consider us like clowns. ¬†We’ll make you laugh but we are scary as heck to look at sometimes. ¬†Signed Hide N Seek

Dear Hide N Seek,

Shivers to mergatroid!  I will never stomp my little hooves in the puddle outside in my magical backyard EVER again.  Heck, I close my eyes and still see you.  EEWW Рyou are like clowns Рscary!!  I gotta get in therapy.  Thanks.

.

20131113-093300.jpg

Dear Bacon,

You’re not the only cute thing that rides around in your mom’s moving thingy. ¬†I love to settle in the back seat and go for a spin. ¬†It kind of relaxes me and helps me to go to sleep. ¬†I think it helps my mom too to hear me go bbaaww. ¬†Signed Tiny

Dear Tiny,

OMP (oh my pig).  Yes you are so right my friend.  You are the most adorable little thing.  I just want to pick you up and cuddle with you!  If my mom saw you, oh goodness, we would so have to adopt you here at the Hotel Thompson!!  Stay safe my little friend.

20131113-093327.jpg

Dear Bacon,

I turn my back for one minute and my tail hit my nuts off of the pole.  I think my face tells you everything.  I got make every nut count during these winter months!  Signed Flabbergasted

Dear Flabbergasted,

I’m sorry my friend for laughing but that look is priceless! ¬†Hit me up, I’ll give you some nuts ūüôā

.

20131113-093437.jpg

Dear Bacon,

No matter what you do in life, never give up and never surrender. ¬†You don’t know what strengths you have until you try. ¬†Stay strong my friend. ¬†Signed Adam Ant

Dear Adam Ant,

Those are some powerful words my little buddy.  So true and spot on.  I will never give up and never surrender with anything in my life.  Thank you!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon,

Sometimes you find yourself between a rock and a hard place and sometimes it’s just between two trees. ¬†It’s all about balance in collecting these nuts for the winter time. ¬†You do anything like this? ¬†Signed Limber

Dear Limber,

That is some balancing act my friend. ¬†I’m amazed at your technique. ¬†I once saw a human nephew do this between the door jams in my bedroom. ¬†He climbed right up using his feet like you did. ¬†Amazing… simply amazing. ¬†I myself do not have this talent due to my ‘amazing’ pot belly – snorts.

Dear Bacon,

You know the old song, “Who let the dogs out? – bark bark” Well, we’re tired of it. ¬†It’s not always all about the dogs. ¬†It’s about other anipals too. ¬†So me and Red are trying to start a new song, “Who let the pigs out – snort snort – Who let the cats out – meow meow”. ¬†It’s kind of catchy. ¬†What do you think? ¬†Signed Red and Socks

Dear Red and Socks,

I’m all in! ¬†I like it. ¬†It’s very catchy. ¬†I think I’ll start singing it now my friends – snort snort – meow meow.

Dear Bacon,

The humans don’t get it. ¬†This is MY remote. ¬†It’s my turn for the television show that we are going to watch. ¬†Do you have to fight for control too? ¬†Signed Scamp

Dear Scamp,

AAWW – you need your time with the Animal Planet too my friend! ¬†We had a battle of the wills when mom/dad adopted me. ¬†Hey, I have my own tastes in shows and they do too. ¬†In order to keep peace at the Hotel Thompson, they set me up with my very own television and remote in my bedroom. ¬†Hey – now I’m in heaven!… except when they put my remote on top shelf of the book case. ¬†That’s just mean. ¬†Maybe ask your humans for your own set up. ¬†You never know until you ask.

Dear Bacon,

You ever have one of those days that the only thing possibly left to do is make a face? ¬†I find that it relieves a lot of stress in my life. ¬†If you haven’t tried it, do. ¬†It may make a difference. ¬†Let me know what you find out. ¬†Signed Puss in Boots

Dear Puss in Boots,

I have to snort on that look on your face. ¬†That is quite humorous. ¬†Personally, I have not tried it although I have seen such looks on my mom’s face from time to time. ¬†I think she may be a firm believer in your stress reducing technique. ¬†I’m off to watch myself in the mirror now to see what I look like. ¬†Thanks for the tip pal!

Dear Bacon,

Did you mention food? ¬†Me and my bro’s are so there. ¬†Just let us know when/where. ¬†Signed Husky Gang

Dear Husky Gang,

Whoa – hold back my friends. ¬†No mention of food here whatsoever. ¬†Nothing to see. ¬†I do enjoy your healthy appetite and thrust for life. ¬†Ya’ll make such a cute picture together. ¬†And from that picture, I pick up quickly that you are the leader of your gang – snorts. ¬†Stay alert my friend. ¬†You’ll be the first to know if food is on the table here at the Bacon Casa.
