Dear Bacon – What kind of joke is this? Do you see these mysterious copy dog’s on my bed? Please – there is only *one* king cat in this family. End of discussion. These have got to be imposters! Signed Lord Kitty
Dear Lord Kitty – How dare them try to get in on your royalty. I say push them off the bed. Show them who’s boss. I don’t think it will hurt them – snorts.
Dear Bacon – I’m really practicing on my please look. I think I *almost* have it down pact. What do you think? Would you give in and give me what I was begging for? Signed Please Sir
Dear Please Sir – Oh my! Oliver Twist has nothing on you my friend.
I think you have the “please sir may I have another look” down to a T. Really I do. Perhaps, I a mere piggy should take lessons from you.
With that pose, you are certainly going to get anything you beg for!
Dear Bacon – Just me hanging out with my lady love on a Saturday night watching some television. The humans think we look funny. What say you our pal? Signed Two in Love
Dear Two in Love – I say you two look hopelessly in love with all of your hearts. You don’t look funny at all. Maybe the humans are jealous?
Dear Bacon – If there is a box, we must fit. You know how us purr things can be. Who cares what came in the box, we want to be in the box. This is me and my brother doing what we do best. Do you like boxes as much as we do? Signed Twin Kitties
Dear Twin Kitties – That is adorable my friends. It really is. You got you a condo going on right there in that picture – snorts. Me, I don’t like ‘sleeping’ in boxes but I do love destroying boxes. Just give me five minutes alone with a box. That’s all I ask. I will have the bestest of all times!

Dear Bacon – There. I’m ready for Winter. Bring it on Mother Nature. I’m ready to get rid of the heat and welcome the cooler weather. My scarf is ready and I’m waiting. Tap.tap.tap. That’s my paws tapping while I’m waiting. When is this winter suppose to get here pal? Signed Scarf Dog
Dear Scarf Dog – Oh my friend. I agree with you about weather. And you do look so very sharp in your scarf – you will be ready for it when Mother Nature decides to play nice. Now, we have had some cooler days and I can tell with my piggy senses that it’s coming. But winter is still a far piece away. Autumn will be here September 23. Winter is not officially here until December December 21. So we do have some time. But Autumn does bring cooler weather too. And this little oinker can’t wait! Until then, stay cool my friend.
Dear Bacon – Sometimes you just need a sleep buddy to hold on to to keep the nightmares away. It’s always better knowing someone is there for you. Do you have a sleep buddy? Signed Ginger Twins
Dear Ginger Twins – I think that’s a fabulous idea my friends. Mom and dad go to sleep holding hands. They say that otters do the same thing so they don’t float away from each other in the water. You see, lots of anipals do this and I do believe it’s a wonderful way to fall off to sleep knowing someone has your paw. Sometimes I sleep with mom/dad and get close to them. Other times, Houdini or Mouse Girl will bunk with me and lay real close.
Dear Bacon – It’s not bad enough that I have to wear the cone of shame. Oh no. I should have known something was up when my human dad wanted to hold me for a second. I could feel him doing something to my cone of shame but didn’t know what. That is until I met up with the mirror and saw his creation. Really dad? Perhaps I should get you a cone of shame? Signed Bat Cat
Dear Bat Cat – I have to admit it my friend but that cone of shame is priceless. How many other purr things do you know that can say their cone of shame was made just for them. I say wear it with pride and hey give your human daddy some slack. His creativity could make you ‘the cat’ of the neighborhood. Give it a test and see what I mean. Others will be so jealous!
Dear Bacon – Okay I let the humans sleep in on the weekend. I didn’t pounce on them and wake them up. I showed respect and refrained from barking my head off. But this is where I draw the line. It is now noon and my bowl is empty. I’m going to start wasting away soon without my food. Darn these paws. If I had fingers, I could get my own food out of the bag and refrigerator. Humans – WAKE UP. Signed Hungry Jack
Dear Hungry Jack – WOW – noon huh? That is total control on your part my friend. Perhaps pull the humans blankets off of them? They will wake up quickly with that. And this picture is priceless for them. Perhaps email or text it to their magical cell phones. They wake up pretty quick when those things ring too. Hope you get fed soon 🙂

September we have been highlighting some of my friends who volunteered to help me out with my Dear Bacon issue. Today’s last special edition is by my brother Easy. If you don’t know Easy, you *must* go visit him and check him out. Tell them that Bacon sent you. Now, on to some great advice to help out our fellow anipals.
Last night was great. My human dropped a pill on the floor. The next thing she knew, I ate it. I’m not sure what it was but I want more. I was so happy. So giggly. So alive! What do you think it was? Signed Feeling No Pain
Dear Feeling No Pain,
I bet it was a blue pill with a rhombic shape… they are the pills that lift anything up… really anything and anybody…. Those kind of pills you can buy when you check your spam folder. No worries that you could be fooled by a hoax, the offers start always with “Dear Friend…” and friends never fool you, right?
I think we may be related. Can’t you see the resemblance? The eyes? The nose? Maybe the good looks? I think we may even be twins separated at birth. What do you think? Signed Mirror Image
Dear Mirror Image,
It seems you are really my twin… what’s sad, because I’m sick of my singleness… butt maybe that’s just the first impression and there is a chance that we are related butt not by blood? I can see some differences on your right ear and on your nose, what’s missing the scratch I wear . Please check your pedigree and call me immediately!
I’m so pretty. I’m so fun. I’m so exciting on the farm. My human knitted my outfit for me and I love it! Don’t you? What size are you? I can get you one too so we can both have fun, fun, FUN! Signed Pretty in Pink
Dear Pretty in Pink,
Thanks that I have the chance to meet you. You must be the longlost twin of my mom. She wore exactly the same outfit like you, as they brought her home from hospital or wherever they found her.. Do you remember her? She just has no horn, butt probably hers grows inwards… Oh and btw: I’m a size XS…that means xtremely sloshed :o)
They see me rolling and they’re hating. My pops bought me this get up and I highly recommend it. You want to know why? Because it attracts the ladies. What do you wear to attract the ladies? Signed Ladies Pup
Dear Ladies Pup,
You have a very wise Pops. He knows that all girls have a shoe-obsession and that a butt is a good butt in the perfect jeans. Oh and to wear sunglasses your way has something of James Dean, I agree. Girls love rebells, so they will open you their heart and their treat packs. I have to admit that I’m a professed nudist, but maybe that’s the reason that I’m still single?
I got busted. Here’s the proof – thanks to my humans. During the day while they were at work, I got into the garbage can. I thought I was safe until this contraption got stuck on my head. Dude I couldn’t get it off. Any tips for my future escapades? Signed Lid of Shame
Dear Lid of Shame,
Your humans need a garbage can with an automatic lid, called Dive In in carnivore circles. That’s an essential equipment if they share their crib with a dog. Oh and I would remove that thingy before they come home… in worst case, next time they would save the money for a cone and try it with the lid of the treashure can…
Thank you to all of my guests that helped me host my special editions for September. Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without *you*. Please continue to send your letters and questions to me here at the Hotel Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org

We just wanted you to see that you weren’t the only cute miniature. Look at us – we rock this barn here at Old McDonald’s farm. Signed Goat Twins
Dear Goat Twins,
OMP (oh my pig!) You two are the most adorable things I’ve seen in some time. How does your humans not just pick you up and squeeze you? Rock on my friends. Ya’ll are totally cute as buttons!
I’ve heard you talk about wanting a cape. I always wanted one too so I thought I would share with you what my humans did for me. They took an old sheet, cut it and tied it around my neck – there you go – instant cape. I highly recommend it. They made me two so when one is dirty I will always have a back up. You gotta try it. Signed Puppy Power
Dear Puppy Power
That is totally awesome!! I doesn’t require any sewing – snorts – so I think mommy can do that for me. I’ve gotta show this to her and see what she can do. Thank you so much for sharing this with me. I feel a cape coming my way very soon! Piggy power!
I was on my walk the other day in the neighborhood minding my own business when I came across such a weird animal. I’m not sure what it was. It hopped and made little sounds. We got nose to nose. Do you know what this thing was? Signed Boo
It’s a rabbit! Look at those ears and that adorable little cotton tail. WOW – I have rabbits in my magical backyard but nothing like that fancy one. So cute!
It’s not what you think. That pesky cat in the house dared me to stand upside down and then bet me I couldn’t put my paw in my mouth. What I didn’t know at the time was that he had a camera and took my picture. Shakes my head. I fall for it every time. Suggestions? Signed Pupbusted
Give me a second to get myself together… snorts. That sounds like something the purr things here would do to me – and have tried. Sometimes you need to know when to walk away from a scam. Hopefully, this is as far as the picture goes. I would recommend finding it on the camera and deleting it. You wouldn’t want it to show up on this years Christmas cards – snorts.
I’m a wild hog. I live outside on my own. I gather my own food. I take care of myself. This is a very rare picture of me in my freedom. You ever thought about becoming a man pig? I would teach you the ways of living like a real pig. Signed Pumbaa
Shivers. Why would I want to do that my friend? I do appreciate the offer but even *I* know that I have it made here at the Hotel Thompson. I’ve kind of grown accustomed to my bedroom, my toddler bed, my television, my laptop and room service. Why would I want to live in the wild? But hey, we all have different goals in life. Mine is to stay
spoiled treasured here with my human mommy. You rock it though and take care of you!

We at the Hotel Thompson have been watching all of the excitement with the Atlanta Zoo and one of their panda’s named Lun Lun. Lun Lun has been pregnant and actually went into labor Monday, 07/15/2013. She gave birth to twins at 6:21PM on 07/15/2013. We’ve been keeping up with all of the excitement of how they rotate the two babies to have time with their mommy. It’s totally fascinating! Mom/Dad said they can’t wait to go back to the zoo in the future to check the family out.
I actually did some research on panda’s that I thought would share. How much of this information did you know?
- At birth, panda babies only weigh around 4 ounces – that’s like the equivalent to a stick of butter! They are pink and hairless – just like this picture of one of Lun Lun’s babies. But although they are small, they can vocalize and make sounds. Can you believe that?
- Around 25 days after birth, they get a full coat of hair with their black/white markings.
- Around 75 days, they start getting their first baby teeth.
- Around 72-76 days, their eyes fully open.
- At 100 days – according to Chinese tradition for good luck, this is when their names will be announced.
- Around 3-4 months, they start walking and by 4 months a cub can walk and climb.
- Around 4 months, they start to eat solid foods and bamboo.
- Around 5 months, they can run and climb tall objects.
- At 1 year, they weigh around 50-60 pounds.
This information/pictures were shared from the Zoo Atlanta site here in Atlanta, Georgia. Mom/dad go there often to visit the animals. They have a fabulous zoo! You can find out more information about the zoo at http://www.zooatlanta.org They even have a panda cam set up so you can watch these wonderful pandas! Hope you enjoyed it my friends – XOXO – Bacon
