Bacon wuff peepoles. I wuff to kiss them and lick them.
I am most excited pup in the whole wide world.
I love my fambly. I love my house. I love my Bobo. I love my Bobo soooo much I ate both him's earses and the string on top of him's heads.
NEW MAMA ARE TONS OF FUN!!! I follow her EVFURRYWHERE. I would rather be by new mama than play, than eat, than chase squirrels, or tennis balls, or eat the Texas Toothpicks evfun, which are my favoritest treats! Bacon average one a day.
Mama says I has a cannybull problem though. Bacon's favorite game are "Get cher nose!!" I love to get Mama's nose. Mama says that although she thinks I am absolooterly adorable, and my little teefies chewing on her nose make her shriek and giggle with the glees, she says small children (and some big peepoles, too) may not appreesheeates having them noses eated by the Bacon.
I also get so excited and happy to see Mama that if there are not a toy around I will gladly play with her handses or arms. I do not hurt Mama. NO! Bacon are sweet as pie and sensamative, too! I nevfur hurt no one evfur! Not evfun kitties. But if no toy around, Bacon makes dooooo!!!
Hands and arms are fun!!!! And I like to mouf evfurrything.
Papa says "Bacon, no! Do not chew on Mama."
Mama says, "ohhhhhh, but he wants to play!!!"
Anyfur, Bacon and Mama need to be trained. Papa says no more Hannybull the Cannybull times! No more Getcher nose. "But kisses!!! I can still give the kisses, right, new Papa?"
Kissies are always good, Bacon. But for some reason, the humans have a problem with us chewing on their body parts-- ears, noses, fingers, arms, toes, ankles, are all off limits. I used to chew the wooden legs on the furniture instead but apparently those are off limits, too. Yeesh!! You just need to spread your toys all over the house so you can find one quick when you get the urge to chew something. That's what I do. Off course, Momma goes around picking them up and putting them back in the toy basket, making more work for me later. Humans!!! They are so hard to train!!
Yeah, you gotta be careful wif da noses! I get Mommy's nose sometimes and it skeers her. She just knows one uh deez days I's gonna actually plant my teefs in her nose. Maybe accidentally, but it'll still hurts. Definitely don't wanna do dat to no kiddos or older folks coz their skins are so sensitive and will tear easily. So, *sigh*, guess you gotta take it easy wif Mom, too. BOL!
Ernie are watching the Bacon. Bacon has my Mama personalitease to a T!!! OMD! I think he & Mama both get a "little" too excited if you knows what Ernie meaned!!! BOL!
Maybe they will wears eachothfur out!
you can still give kisses and all the time...but you should watch out for the nose...one time when I was a pup..and that was a real long time ago...I did that to my Mom and I bit her nose and bled for a while and then had some big brown thing on it for about a week...BOL
Bacon, you and JoLee both like the noses! Maybe you're both part shark-BOL! LONG time ago my Mom had a baby cocker. Nora liked to bite the noses too, so whenfur she did that Mom would say (in a stern voice) SHARK! & pull back and go away from the Nora. Eventually the pup lerned-BOL! But evfurone thot Mom was nuts-OMD-BOL!
ooooohhhh Bacon! you are wike me! I wuvs to chew on my fambily! I no hoot dem eever, but sometimes da human bwothers say "OUCH COWOSSUS!" and den I fees bad. But dey know I's just a baby. :) My Big Sisfur, Tiki says she is vewy vewy happy you's wiv at EG's house now. :) Have wots of Fun!!!!
(whispering)....Has any other pup but me noticed that Ernie George is still Dog of the Week?? Must be cuz he is so terrierific that he needed more than one week...shhhhhh.......!
I NOTICED, FINLEY!!! BOL! I thought they named a new one on Monday night! OMD!Angel Ernie are not complainin'! BOL!
Colossus!!! Come play with me!!! I need a puppy to play with!
Big Orange are very crabby in her pantses. :>(
Hey Bacon, glad you're havin' fun with your new mama! But she's right about not scarin' the li'l uns. I know about bein' a nice, sweet but excitable pup, too! I luvs my ballies! But the other day in the park some li'l uns came up and Mom foolishly let them get a hold of my ball. I have a bad habit of grabbin' things out of my peeps hands. Wellwoof, I went to get my ball and scared the li'l guy and made him cry. Mom was worried I might have to go to puppy jail or sumptin and we both felt bad to make a li'l un cry. So watch out on those noses!
Awwww, you didn't means it, Pepper. You just wanna play. But it are important to be nice to minihoomans. Ernie were always careful with them. Although I did like to poke the little ones in the belly with my schnooter and knock em down on their puffy, stink pants. Littlest ones carries stinks around in their pants! bol!
Funny story. Mama are kinda verprotective about us pups. Well the othfur day, I saw her out walking the Bacon. I know he is kinda scaredy about noises and stuff...so Mama saw this toddler guy...his peepole was yakking on a cell phone, in the driveway of a townhouse development with road running through it. Not really a road, but kind of.
Mama's teaching Bacon about nice, calm walking and she sees a 3 year old with one of them noisy lawn mowers. The kid is 4 houses away. He is running full-speed at Mama, from his driveway, across the street.
Mama says to herself, oh no, no, no, no, he's not gonna do it. He's not gonna do it. He wouldn't. And surely his dumb-@$%^* parent isn't going to allow it to happen.
But of course it does. The toddler charges at Bacon from the length of 4 houses, with a plastic lawnmower rumbling like a freight train, like he's going to run poor Bacon over.
Bacon, although very tentative on walks (scared of roofers) just stood there, as what can only be described by an adult of 5'9" as a terrifying little monster with a scary machine charged him! The unruly youngster stopped with in inches of Bacon.
Mama was P#$$ED! The kid lets loose a shriek. Preverbal practically! STILL NO PARENTAL INTERVENTION. The parent is on the phone.
Bacon turned to the little boy, jumped up on him and licked his face, and the little boy looked startled. Mama didn't even reprimand Bacon. She just said, "It's okay Bacon, come on Bacon lets go." and she turned and walked away.
Angry Mama says, "I'll mind my puppy when you mind your kid!!!"
Angel Ernie says "Bad Mama, two wrongs don't make rights, but BOL! BOL! BOL! ANYWAY!"
Yes, we noticed that E.G. was DOTW too. Sometimes its like they forget to change. I've seen some dogs like 2-3 weeks as DOTW! And others they change immediately.
I should say...the parent was watching...so the kid was not in danger of getting hit by a car. She wouldn't leave a kid in the middle of the road to get hit. Even if the little heathen did virtually attack her precious pup.
I loves giving da kissies too Bacon 'O pal! Took mama 40 years to teaches me not to give a gazillion kisses instead of just 10 or 12... dont know why some peepholes dont like da kisses!?? I has to be bery bery carefuls not to get carried away! It's hard tho! Sounds like you are living the life! We are sooooooooo happies for you little buddy!
Marley and da pack
Kisses are always welcome.
Like you, Bacon, I have to take it easy on the chewing, jumping, nibbling. Kisses, they're still good!
I has NEVER given mom any kisses and I's been with here 4 years now. :o(
Bacon, here's what you do! Since Momma don't mind the nose nibbles, you just nibble her nose. Since you Daddy don't like, DON'T nibble his nose!! That's what happens in this house! Momma don't like the love bites, but Daddy does! Now I never gets in trouble!
Oh Bacon puppy I used to love biting noses too!!Hopefully you will outgrow it I did. Enjoy your new home!!!
You doing OK Kid! Now, since I therapy dog, I never got to do those fun things for very long (HD sighs very heavy). Enjoy it while you can and just remember no nose to nose wif the little peeps and the old furts! LOL
Bacon...I love to give kisses too. Mama loves it but Grandpa doesn't like to be licked...he he he I still do it just to aggravate him BOL!
Learn from my wisdom, young Bacon: Nibble on your mudder's nose right after you lick your bucket. The humans lub that!
Snarls yet again at idiot humans and cell phones.. I swear I will swing one day for some $%^&*() with a cell phone and no brain.
They started changing the DOTW on the Tues,, then again.. it depends on them REMEMBERING !!!! and its now Wednesday !! Go for it EG !!!
Bacon.. maybe "directional chewing" could be a good learning curve !!!!!
You are so full of love and gratitude to your new furmily that you want to show them that at every moment, and in any possible way...even nose nibbling and arm mouthing.
Peeps taste good, right?!
I know how my pawppy tastes,and I do all I can to wash it and enjoy the taste...1st thing in the morning, and when he comes home from work, and when he goes to bed...But growlmy hardly even lets me get one lick anywhere on her...I don't know how she tastes anymore...BOL! I have to be happy with the chin and ear scritches she doles out...And good going on the Bobo destruction...That is what terriers are supposed to do!
I am glad you had lots of impulse control when that naughty kidlet assailed you and came into your 'space' too loudly and fast. OMD! I would have growled...or worse!
Growlmy's 1st dog from about 400 years ago...when she was a teeny-bopper...he was 1/2 terrier, and part clown with pogo stick legs. His fave greeting was to jump up and lick peeps noses before gravity made the nose out of reach again! Once he misjudged and almost broke growlmy's nose...he bumped it! Hard!
Well, have a nice evening and we will hear more from you, the little Bacon Rasher From Sunset Blvd, later.
Woofs! Licks and more licks!
OH! Yes! You still are up as DOTW, EG! Wow...that must be because you were so spawsial and cute and irresistible!
Woofs and hugs!
Here is something that will make your tail WAG!!
Dogs Celebrate International Bacon Day
The Beggin’ BACON BASH in Cincinnati featured dog costume
contests, agility and more.
The Purina Incredible Dog Team performed canine agility presentations at the inaugural Beggin’ BACON BASH held in early September.
Beggin’, a brand of bacon-flavored dog treats made by Nestlé Purina PetCare, hosted its first-ever Beggin’ BACON BASH for dogs in Cincinnati on Sept. 4 in honor of INTERNATIONAL BACON DAY . Hundreds of dogs turned out for the inaugural event, according to the Cincinnati-based company.
“Because dogs — and their owners — share a hilarious obsession for bacon, Beggin’ created an exciting, dog-friendly event for the entire family that’s all about BACON,” said Stephen Trammel, an assistant brand manager with Nestlé. “There was no better way to celebrate International Bacon Day.”
The Beggin’ BACON BASH featured an array of activities for dogs and their humans. Dogs could participate in the canine costume contest and take part in a Guinness Book world record attempt for the “loudest group bark.” Humans got a chance to participate in an All Pro Eating-sanctioned bacon eating contest, won by Mark “The Human Vacuum” Lyle of Columbus, Ohio.
Dog lovers were also able to watch agility demonstrations put on by the Purina Incredible Dog Team.
The event also featured a special cooking demonstration by Kevin Gillespie, a finalist on Bravo TV network’s “Top Chef” reality show.
“I’m a huge fan of the pig, and I’m crazy about bacon in particular,” Gillespie said. “I enjoyed sharing some of my favorite pork dishes with other BACON lovers, and I hope that I inspired them to embrace pork within their own cooking.”
I heard someone might have created a bust of Kevin Bacon made out of bacon! BOL!
Yeah, for some reason biting noses is not appreciated. I don't know why. But kissies are always fun to give out!
The little humans are always rushing at me too. I am pretty good with them because I lived in an apartment where there were these little girls who loved me, but momma is always surprised how some people just let their kids run up to dogs they don't know. Seems kinda crazy.
OMD!! You is a licker too!! BOL!!! I will lick the face, the hands, the arms, the legs, the toeses, anything within reach is up fur grabs! I even licks the clothes if no skin is available! BOL!! Mom gave me the nickname "Sugar Man" cuz I gives everybody lotsa sugar. She can't break me up from this habit either.
Yes, we say like the Mr. JackFreckles that EG is one special guy who continues to be our DOTW! He is extra special, cute, irresistible and a frutastic fureind to so many of us.
Hi Bacon! Glad to hear you are so happy. I too am a kisser. I love to give kisses on Mum's nose and anybody else's nose that I can reach. But what I really like are toes. Just can't get enough of them. Mum hide hers after a while.
So glad that Uncle Ernie is DOTW again.
Woofs & lots of licks,
My momma would have yelled at the parent to stop their kid right there!! Or at the kid to stop!! BOL!! Because I have never been around the rug rat sized variety of humans and she is afraid I might get snarly if one grabbed at me wrong....
What is wrong with some people anyway? They ask if their little lap ape can pet your dog, you keep walking and say "No, she isn't used to kids..." and they get all offended and say something like "i'm just trying to teach them to like dogs!" all huffy like. To which Momma replies, "Then get your own dog." BOL!!
Momma knows if I nipped one of the little monsters in self-defense, I would be the one to get locked up, so they can keep their kids to themselves. Most people don't teach their kids how to approach dogs. Momma did, and they had basset hounds when her girls were little. Bassets are mellow and got lots of loose skin, so they are good pups for little kids.
