Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – This is called *the* look.  You know the one that your parents do between themselves when they get all gooey eyed with each other.  I wanted to send it to you so you can practice.  Cause you know love day is coming and you need to market this look to get a date for Valentine’s.  I know you have it in you.  Who could ever resist that little pot belly of yours.  Practice – practice and more practice my friend.  You’re welcomed.  Signed Stud

Dear Stud – OMP.  Thanks my friend!!  I am so going to start practicing this look and marketing it.  I need all of the help I can get with the ladies.  And thank you for calling my pot belly little.  I appreciate that so very much buddy!  I just knew that this pot belly would come in handy one day.  Look at dad.  He has one and he got lucky with mom!  Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.


Dear Bacon – I double pig bet you that you can’t do this.  In fact, I just *know* you can’t.  See sometimes I try to mess with my humans and stand on my back paws.  Meows.  It keeps them guessing what I will do next.  I just want to see them doing this too.  Signed Twinkle Toes

Dear Twinkle Toes – That is a given talent my sweet dear friend.  There is no way this little piglet could do that for sure.  Heck with this pot belly, I can barely see my back feet.


Dear Bacon – Wassup!?!  Never fear if you see me hanging under your fence.  Just wanted to see wassup and whatcha parents cooking on that grill.  It smells good from here.  Can I have a bite or dozen?  Signed Voyeur

Dear Voyeur – Hilarious bro!  I love the way you think of hanging out to see what’s going on in the hood.  Pop over anytime…. or should I say pop under?  Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.  And hey, mom/dad were grilling hamburgers on the grill.  If one falls, it’s free game to us anipals.  Come on over.  I’ll share.


Dear Bacon – Come on dude.  Let’s “fly” some air outside and do some jumps.  It’s a happening thing and you will love the air in your hair… or wings.  I’ve heard some oinkers have wings.  Call me and we will have a skate date.  Signed Hawk Fly

Dear Hawk Fly – Dude, I think it would be fly to soar through the air weighless.  I just don’t think (A) there’s a skateboard big enough for my pot belly and (B) my pot belly could ever take flight unless someone shoved me off of a cliff or the top of the house.  On second thought, forget I said that.  Dad might read it and get ideas.  Have fun Hawk Fly!


Dear Bacon – The New York City subway is a strict bus service.  Dogs can’t walk on buses.  They have to be carried, in strollers, etc.  My human created me a good one – a skateboard.  Hey, I put on a hat and headset and nobody even knows I’m a pooch.  Really!  And hey, we are not breaking any rules whatsoever.  So go us, right?  Signed Disguised Celebrity

Dear Disguised Celebrity – My friend, do I have someone you need to get in touch with!  See Hawk Fly above.  Ya’ll could fly around the bus services like you wouldn’t believe together.  Just think of the possibilities of fun!  Just remember – safety first!

Will You Be My Valenpig?

Roses are red – Violets are blue – My heart has led – My love to you.

Will you be my valenpig?

Today is also an anniversary of sorts for my mom/dad.  Dad actually popped the question to mom years ago by asking her to marry him on Valentine’s Day.  So today has a special place in their hearts.  I think they are actually going out on a date night tonight to celebrate.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!  And I have to ask my friends.

Will you be my Valenpig? XOXO – Bacon

P.S.  Let me tell you a little diddy I read on some mythology lore.  According to Greek mythology, humans were born with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces.  Fearing their power, Zeus split and separated them into two parts.  He then condemned the two parts to spend the rest of their lives in search of their other halves.  Knowing this, it makes sense that humans are looking for their other half in love.  I like to think mom/dad found theirs.

Valentine’s Day Aftermath – a Note From My Daddy

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend with Valentine’s Day.  This afternoon I want to talk about great times with the big day of LOVE.  Think over the years – or if it was this past weekend – to your most memorable Valentine’s day.  What happened?  Today is the day to share and tell me about it.

I asked my mom and dad the same question.  They reminisced about all of the happy Valentine’s Days they have had.  There were many, MANY to pick from but mom and dad picked one that really meant a lot to them both.

They said years and years ago in a time way before they were married and they were still dating.  Daddy was working at the hospital on night shift 3pm-11pm.  Mommy was working for the school system 7am-3pm.  So during the week, they pretty much didn’t see each other physically although they did talk to each other a couple of times during the day.  And remember this was way before the cell phone era – snorts.  (I tell you my humans are older than dirt.)

So Valentine’s day fell on a Wednesday this one year and both were working.  They just knew they were not going to see each other at all.  But daddy – he is a romantic at heart that you wouldn’t believe.  He went by mom’s apartment before she went to work and put a GIANT Scooby Doo stuffed animal in the passenger seat of her car and left.  When mom came down to get in her car, (after she almost had a heart attack because she thought someone was sitting in her car) she oohhed and aawwed.  She got in the car and Scooby Doo was holding a giant heart box.  She opened the giant heart box and there was a card from daddy telling her sweet nothings, chocolate and a jewelry box.  She opened the jewelry box and it had one of the most beautiful jade necklaces that she had ever seen.  Of course she cried.  And then cried some more.  And then cried more and went to school wear she wore the beautiful jade necklace all day.

She had called daddy went she got to work and she made plans to see him at his job later that day for when he went to dinner.  So that night rolled around and mom met dad at the hospital.  Dad told mom he was taking her to a fast food restaurant called Arby’s.  Not a place they went to regularly but dad was insistent.  What she didn’t know was that dad had received information about something special Arby’s was doing that night.  That night just for Valentine’s Day, they had brought in a baby grand piano and hired a guy to play and give out roses to the patrons.  Mom cried again and said it was so romantic and thoughtful.

So there you go my friends, that’s ONE of mom and dad’s most memorable Valentine’s Day.  Now is the time for you to share one of yours – go.

UPDATE A NOTE FROM MY DADDY –

Hi everyone – Bacon’s dad here.  We would have loved to have said that this past weekend was the most memorable Valentine’s day for me and my bride.  And in a way, I guess it was.  Bacon’s mom has been fighting this awful cough since December.  The kind of cough that just makes you choke, can’t catch your breathe and she has even passed out from it once.  She went to the hospital in December and they gave her a bunch of medicines and sent her home.

Sunday IMG_1844morning when I got up, she told me she needed to go back to the emergency room. (And being a Sunday, we are very fortunate that the insurance we have has a built in ‘hospital emergency room’ right in the building.)  She was having difficulties in breathing.  We immediately went.  Once there, she got X-rays (we were totally afraid that she had gotten pneumonia) and they came back clear.  She had a breathing treatment and afterwards they put her on a fluid IV and gave her steroids directly in her IV.  They also drew a bunch of blood.  She started feeling a little bit better and didn’t cough for almost 20 minutes.  This was such fantastic news to us after she had been continuously coughing for what seemed like forever.  She got to come home after about 7 hours in the ER being looked at.  She started bruising up last night from the IV’s and where the blood pressure cuff kept coming on so often.  She looks black, blue, yellow and very sore.

Her blood work came back and lot of her numbers were low – iron, potassium, red blood count.  They gave her a bunch of medicines to get filled and start taking which she has.  She still had a really rough night last night sleeping.  Night time is the worse time for her to rest.  We are all taking care of her here at the Hotel Thompson.  I will be helping out Bacon in the next couple of days to get caught up on his blog visits.  So please don’t think we have forgotten about you – we definitely have not.

Oh Boy – It’s Moms Day Out

IMG_1486Oh my friends.  It’s February 14th.  Do you know what that means – besides Valentine’s Day?  It means that today – the sweetest day of the year – mom gets to go to the movies (dad’s treat) and she gets to pick what movie she wants to see.  And here at the Hotel Thompson – we ALL know exactly what that movie is going to be – Fifty Shades of Grey.  Has your human read this book?  Rolls piggy eyes – oh dear piggy heavens.  Help us.  Really help us.

Mom didn’t hope the Grey train until late.  She finally got a special on her phone where she could purchase all four books.  Let me tell you my friends.  That was a bad mistake.  I don’t care where mom went – to the dentist, waiting in line, at a restaurant, even sometimes at work – she would whip that fun out, start reading and fanning herself.

 She has been waiting and waiting for the movie to come out, checking the calendar until the D date.  Of course daddy has been watching her calendar and shaking his head because he knows he has to take her today.

In honor of sweet dad and mom, I thought I would share with you some other Fifty Shades I have found that I personally think would be funny.  What about you?
