Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – Rolls my eyes.  Do you ever have that one sibling that just will not leave you alone.  They are always beside you, around you or heaven forbid like in this picture on top of you.  You just want to shake them off but the humans are always watching.  What can I do to make this pest go away?  Signed Big Brother

Dear Big Brother – Oh my pigs – that is one hilarious picture my friend.  I see your human in the background.  I know you are so doing your best not to go ballistic on your little friend.  Let me tell you something – I *know* your pain.  Houdini here is that pest.  He jumps on me, around me, under me, on top of me – like I’m his personal trampoline or something.  And the humans are always watching wanting to know what I will do.  I’ll tell you what I do.  I go to my bedroom and slam the door so he can’t come in with me – snorts.  Just take it one day at a time my friend.  In fact, I say although sometimes they get on your nerves, enjoy these little moments.  The little pests grow up so fast before your eyes.

Dear Bacon – OMD – OMD – OMD.  Look at that bitch on the dog show!  We all had to stop and run over to the television to watch.  I say she needs to win for our breed.  She’s beautiful!  She is representing us so well – go girl – work it!  Signed Dog Show

Dear Dog Show – Snorts – look at ya’ll so intent on watching her walk.  Dudes, I would think you were a bunch of construction workers whistling at girls going by the way you are looking at that classy lady.  I just love it!  I hope she won on your dog show for your breed.  There’s always too much bad news going on about your breed – it’s about time something nice is being done!

Dear Bacon – Barks!  Do you remember that movie called The Shining?  You know the favorite saying in it, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”?  HA!  Well, the humans were watching the movie last night and totally freaking out about that part where Jack takes an axe and somewhat breaks down the bathroom door and says, “Here’s Johnny”?  So I’m taking care of a little surprise for the humans when they come sit on the couch.  What do you think?  Signed Johnny in Training

Dear Johnny in Training – OMP!  Your humans will pee all over themselves when they see you there in between the cushions.  You look just like Jack in that seen – the facial expression is down pact.  Oh my piggy heavens – to be in the room when your humans sit down – that will be priceless for sure.  Do me a favor and let me know how they react okay.  Can’t way to hear.

Dear Bacon – There I was in the neighborhood.  I was dressed in my jacket because it was a little cool outside.  I decided to go visit my pal next door to see if he wanted to go for a walk in the hood.  I knocked on the door like this and can you believe his human did nothing but stand there and laugh at me.  What was up with that?  I mean heck I was just being sociable.  After a while, I guess they got the meaning and let Skippy out to walk with me.  Weird huh?  Signed PB

Dear PB – Rolls my eyes.  Humans are so weird at stuff like that.  I don’t understand why she would laugh.  I mean don’t anipals go over for play dates like this all of the time?  The guy here Houdini never leaves the house without being dressed.  Why can’t humans understand that?  Anipals have feelings too huh?  Hope ya’ll had fun kicking grass.

REMEMBER MY FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue emailing me your letters and pictures ❤

Bacon’s Tales of Terror

Today, we have a really special tribute.  Today is Friday the 13th – cue scary music!  Do you know that there is only ONE Friday the 13th in the entire 2014 calendar year?  That makes this day extra spooky and scary.

Do you have a fear of this day?  Are you superstitious?  Here in the United States it is thought that bad luck falls upon you on Friday the 13th.  But did you know that in Spanish speaking countries, Tuesday the 13th is a superstitious day for them and considered bad luck.   

Many hotels and tall buildings even skip the 13th floor… just in case of bad luck.  It’s also bad luck to have a party with 13 people… have you read Agatha Christie’s book Thirteen at Dinner?

Did you know that fear of the number 13 is called triskaidekaphobia while fear of Friday the 13th is known as paraskavedekatriaphobia.

Did you know that President Franklin D. Roosevelt suffered from triskaidekaphobia?  He wouldn’t travel on the 13th day of any month and don’t even think about having a party with 13 guests.

Some people even think that Friday the 13th goes back to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.  Supposedly they think that Eve offered Adam the forbidden fruit on a Friday and they were then cast out of Paradise.

And think about the movie marathon we are going to have tonight here at the Hotel Thompson.  Not listed in any particular order but you know we are going to be watching some gory horror flicks to include:  Nightmare on Elm Street, Paranormal Activity,  Saw, Psycho, The Shining , It and of course Friday the 13th.

I’m off now. I’ve got to go cross my hooves.  Avoid some black cats.  Not look at the moon through a pane of glass and throw some salt over each shoulder.  Be careful my friends 🙂
