Dear Bacon

20140330-183817.jpg

Dear Bacon – Listen the water is fine my four legged pot bellied piggy.  Why don’t you come for a swim with me.  I’ll even teach you how to swim under the water.  I’m sure you will catch on fast.  What do you think?  Signed Mr. Friendly

Dear Mr. Friendly – Not that I don’t appreciate your well… friendness but I think I’ll pass.  For some reason, I think it’s better for this little oinker to stay on dry land, far away from the water and far, far away from your swimming lessons. Call it a premonition if you will.  But, carry on my friend and thank you… really.


20140330-183833.jpgDear Bacon – I see you – purr snicker.  I have my eyes on your activities good or bad.  I’m reporting back to that Evil Elf of yours Don Juan.  You just wait.  You’re going to get it when he comes out in November.  Signed The Watcher

Dear The Watcher – Really?!  It’s not bad enough that I have rogue elf that watches my every move, you’re going to as well?  Rolls piggy eyes and walks away.  This is so not fair in this oinker’s life.  Can’t we all just get along?  Snorts


 

20140330-183825.jpgDear Bacon – The nerve of our family vet.  Can you believe that (A) they had the nerve to come near my captains quarters with that proby thing and (B) they told my humans that *I* needed to go on a DIET?!  What in the world was he thinking?  Don’t my humans pay for his sound advice?  What kind of crap advice is this?  I think the look on my face tells you everything I think.  Signed Tiny

Dear Tiny – Oh dear.  That proby thing is awful.  It must be a torture device from centuries long ago.  Yep, that’s what I think.  And that look on your face.  Oh my.  You are certainly not happy.  And well… looks down at my pot belly.  I am one NOT to give any advice to you on that four lettered dirty word – D.I.E.T.  Shakes head – nope.  Not the one to do that at all my friend.

Dear Bacon – I double kitty dare you to try this maneuver.  Heck, I triple meow dare you.  I dare you to put your back legs up over your head.  In fact if you can do this position, I will personally come over every day and give you a piggy massage – heck I’ll even clean up your room for you.  Signed Fear Factor Feline

Dear Fear Factor Feline – Really?!  That’s okay my furry friend.  That’s what I have my mommy for – massages and cleaning – snorts.  Let’s hope that cannon of yours doesn’t go off while you are bent legs over head.


 

20140330-183847.jpgDear Bacon – I hate it when I get into trouble here at my casa.  Can you believe that my humans make me face the couch and sit here in time out?  It’s so humiliating.  Signed Unhappy Pooch

Dear Unhappy Pooch – WOW my friend.  That is some look you have there facing your tomb of doom.  It’s just not right.  And to put you in this time out right in the middle of the living room where you can hear and see all of the fun activities going on around you.  Shakes piggy head and clicks tongue.  Nope, just not right.  I’m sorry pal.  Maybe when you come out of serving your time, you just ignore those humans.  Show them who is getting timeout there.  Don’t give them any affection.  None whatsoever… can you last like what five seconds?  Hang in there my bud!

Texts from Bacon

Oh friends, here’s another Texts from Bacon that you can’t miss out on.  The things that are communicated here at the Hotel Thompson never stop.  It’s like living in a circus sometimes!  Hope you enjoy.  My texts are in blue and mom’s are in white.  Have a great weekend – I can almost see the light from here on the couch!

National Stress Awareness Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

.

Today April 16th is a day that Bacon’s mom can definitely wrap her arms around – National Stress Awareness Day.  This day was created in 1992 sponsored by  the Health Resource Network (HRN). They started this holiday to increase public awareness of the causes and cures of stress.  And we all know that stress can come from a variety of different reasons:  paying bills, work, children, schedules, car problems, friends – you name it and stress can come from it.  And here in the United States with taxes being due yesterday, what better day to have this holiday then today?

Today is the day to acknowledge that you are stressed out and then do something about it.  Go for a walk.  Try some meditation.  Try some exercise.  Do some yoga.  Just lay down and relax.  Just for a bit, don’t concentrate on the wrongs in your life but concentrate on the things that you have to be grateful for.  Shrug off this stress even if it is just for today.  I know this afternoon me and Bacon are going to try yoga.  Wish us luck – his downward pig pose is not something I’m looking forward to – chitter chatter!

Yorkie Yoga

Hello everyone!  Since mom/dad have been on this DIEt kick, I thought I would come in today to share some Yorkie Yoga with everyone.  Yoga is something that everyone can do.  It’s a relaxation technique that can help your stress levels beyond what you can imagine.

So here you go step by step.  Paws together, butt tucked, tummy tight and start to push upwards with your belly.  Pushing upwards with your belly, also push your nose towards the sky.  Hold this position for a few minutes.  I like to call it pointing to the stars.  After a few minutes, relax and smile up at your humans.  That brings down their stress levels to.  Repeat throughout the day as often as needed.  Be the star my friends – BE THE STAR!

And if that doesn’t work.  Lay down on your belly….. and take a nap.

Paw Time with Houdini


Hello Friends!  I just want you to know that this has been my normal picture all week – me watching mom/dad go with their friends all week.  Now, I’ve gotten extra snuggles, love and all kinds of treats.  But hey peeps – why don’t you take me for a ride in the Jeep.  My shirts says it all – I Give Free Kisses – I would surely give you some if you hold me and take me to my favorite pet store for a stroll.

And do you want to hear something else that I heard here at the Hotel Thompson?  Mom/dad are sending me to Nana’s for a couple of days.  Now, I don’t mind that because we all know what happens at Nanas, stays at Nana’s if you know what I mean.

.

Where else can you go and drink from glasses during your visit?  Barks!  See, Nana lets me sip out of her drink – don’t worry there’s nothing *hard* in it… unless you count sweet tea which can sometimes be called the Champagne of the South.  Then again when I do sip from Nana’s cup and it is tea, maybe that’s why I’m so hyper – all of that sugar.  Yeah, that’s it.  Because in no way would this Yorkshire Terror be hyper – barks with puppy laughter.

But never fear my friends.  Just because mom/dad are busy playing with their friends, I did get daddy cornered for his Jokes with Daddy issue.  Hope you enjoy!

Paw Time with Houdini


 Friends – can we bark?  Moms do the silliest things.  No reason – I’m being honest.  Now I’m a pooch and I’m *never* going to turn down a toy…not evah!  But sometimes, I think we need to discuss parameters.

Let’s take a look at this picture.  It’s called Silly Bums Junior.  Look closely at the picture… “Nothing BUTT fun for your dog”.  Shaking my Yorkie head.  Friends, this is the hind leg quarters of a chicken… two legs, the back side and big fluffy tail.  No head, no arms, no nothing – just the BUM.

Now when me and dad had “the” conversation a couple of weeks ago and he said one day I would like a bit of a$*!)$, this is not what I expected or the picture he drew.  What?  Don’t all anipals go through that ‘talk’?

But let me get back on point.  This is the stuffed toy that mom brought me home one day.  Now it has a squeaky toy.  It has crinkles.  It’s furry.  And let me just say that I tore that ass up because that toy is no more – barks with puppy laughter.

And with all of that talk behind me, I do kiss my mommy with that mouth.  See I love my mommy and she loves me.  She even closes her eyes when she kisses me.  That’s love, right?

So I hope your day is wonderful my friends and I hope that your weekend is even better.  We are all expecting a package here at the Hotel Thompson and I’m hoping that it comes tomorrow.  Keep your paws, fingers or hooves crossed that it gets here in time cause we can’t wait to get it.

I know that sounds mysterious but once we get it in hand, we will definitely share with you what it is.  Any thoughts?

And of course, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Hope you enjoy! ♥

Paw Time with Houdini


Hello my friends.  First I wanted to take this time to say thank you to everyone in blogville that have stopped by to leave messages, sent cards and called the Hotel Thompson.  Your kindness has meant so much to us here.  It was truly a shock last weekend in the passing of Mouse Girl over the Rainbow Bridge.  None of us can understand it all.

We have all taken turns trying to find comfort in mom/dad.  Bacon was stuck to mom’s side like glue and as you can tell from these pics, me and Hemi are glued to daddy.  We anipals are really trying to help out mom/dad just like they are trying to help us out.   It will take time but I know with all of your help, we will make it through this.

And daddy has submitted a Jokes with Daddy joke for you today.  I think by this time, we could all use a good laugh.  So my friends, I hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!
