Happy Bacon Day!

Oh boy – oh joy – it’s International Bacon Day! 

So I'm celebrating!

So I’m celebrating!

It’s a big day around here…..well, everywhere that bacon is loved and appreciated I suppose because it’s actually an International Bacon Day so that covers everybody everywhere!  When I found out about this special day I had to do some research and what better spot than the blog 365 Days of Bacon which my good friends Miss Caren and Cody from Cat Chat told me about!  WHO KNEW????!!!!!  Was I ever excited about the news!

As you know we always have bacon with our breakfast around here on weekends and today Mom is making EXTRA just so we can celebrate in style.   The way I go on about the stuff you’d think I eat packages of the stuff right?  Well the truth of the matter is that I only eat a tiny piece.  That’s all I want really.  I’m not a (pardon the expression) PIG when it comes to having bacon.

My Mom got into the spirit of the occasion though and in honor of the day, my Mom brought out SOME (and I mean some) of her pawsome and extensive collection of piggies – she’s collected them for YEARS.  People have gifted them to her, she’s bought them on her world travels, and we find them in shops and stores all over the place.  Mom has a special little display cabinet in her studio with them and just for me (because I said “Pretty Please With Bacon On Top”) she got some down and took a few photos of them so I could share!

Ceramic, cloth, rubber, wooden....Mom's got all kinds of piggies!

Pretty cool huh?   She has others – including a pig her Mom had that she bought when they all lived in Taiwan many years ago.  It was carved out of some kind of dark wood and is one of my Mom’s favorites.   I think they’re quite cute and when Mom was taking these photos I tried to eat a few of them and/or steal them and run off with them.  They are NEVER out of their cabinet so this was a treat to sniff see them up close!

Also, I want to say that if you don’t know a little piggy who has a blog whose name is “Bacon” you should today of all days go over and introduce yourself to him HERE – and if you DO know him, make sure and stop by because he does – after all – have an INTERNATIONAL day named after him since it’s International Bacon Day!!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day – I sure am enjoying it so far……………………”Hey Mom……………bring on the bacon” !!!!!

    • Hi Mollie! Mom’s piggy collection is way cool isn’t it? And that wasn’t ALL of them. Some of the tiny ones aren’t in that display because you can barely SEE them! Mom doesn’t collect them anymore – those were from years ago. I hope you guys get some bacon today since it’s such a wonderful BACON holiday…..but whatever you do, have fun because I know it’s Fat Daddy Saturday at your house too!!

    • Hi Easy! That little wheeled piggy was a present to my Mom – allegedly from an antique shop but who knows if that’s true or not…it’s kind of wobbly and sits on TOP of Mom’s official “little piggy cabinet”. I hope you’re celebrating International Bacon Day yourself today Easy? Perfect excuse to demand bacon!!

    • Oh it is a heck of a day to celebrate!! That piggy you say is your favorite might be my favorite too – it’s extra cute…When he took that photo yesterday it was the first time those little piggies have been out of the cabinet in years. I got to do a good “sniff” check of them….and tried to make off with one or two before I got caught!

    • Hi Miss Pix! Yes indeed – it’s been one bacon-filled day ’round here……my Mom doesn’t collect piggies any longer but she obviously DID at one time as you can see. They’re all little too so they don’t take up tons of room – just one little cabinet in her studio. Hope you and CH had a bacon-o-rama this morning yourselves to celebrate???

    • Hi Caren…..thanks for letting me know about 365 Days of Bacon – and giving Sam and me an excuse to devote a whole day to Sam’s little bacon fetish! LOL I don’t collect piggies any longer but I sure did for several years as you can see. Most of those are from our vacations – some from David and other people as gifts…..They’re all little too which is nice so they don’t take up a lot of room. It was fun to get them out for that “photo shoot”!

      Love you too, Pam

    • Well every Saturday IS bacon day but today I got EXTRA and might even have more at lunch since I heard the word “BLT” mentioned! WOO HOO! Yes, Mom has about ten more piggies that she didn’t put on the bed when she took that photo…….they were tiny little pigs (although those aren’t big either!) and you wouldn’t even have SEEN them!

      Happy Saturday!

  4. So Sam, we consider you the master of all things bacon, and we are glad that you have yet another thing to celebrate each year. Hope your usual Saturday bacon tasted even yummier than usual. Tell Mom Pam that her piggy collection (at least that which she shared) is very cute. We can’t believe she doesn’t have at least one you can play with. Have a wonderful weekend.

    • Oh I was so excited to hear about International Bacon Day – you can just imagine my delight! We had bacon for breakfast and I heard Mom say she and Dad are going to have BLTs for lunch so I put in an order for one too (without the L and the T). As for Mom’s pigs – don’t tell her this but I HAVE played with a couple of those piggies. After that photo shoot she did I snuck back in there where she had her piggy collection set up and had a good sniff and tried to make off with that little pink stuffed piggy. Tee Hee

Oh yes we know Coccolino and I warned Miss Katie and Cocco that Sam would be celebrating bacon today BUT we all decided that since Cocco isn’t an “eating/bacon” pig, it would be alright….same with Bacon from PigLove (I told Bacon it was HIS special day since his name is Bacon!!!) – AND of course even though they aren’t PIGS, I told all my guinea pig friends too.
