Nellie's Interview with Bacon Thompson

Before Nellie went over the bridge, she was interviewed by Bacon! 


Bacon is a miniature pot bellied pig and he lives at the Hotel Thompson with his adopted brother - a cat named Hemingway – Hemi for short and Houdini, a Yorkshire Terrier. Bashful the traveling Rock also has Hotel Thompson as his home base! Bacon also has a guest  blogger that really intrigued Nellie, called Rocky the Squirrel (Nellie had a Love/Hate relationship with squirrels)
Bacon has one of the funniest blogs on the pet blogosphere and he has been keeping me (and Nellie) entertained since he started blogging back in 2011.

  2. Oh sweet friend. Even in time of grief, you still have time to do things for friends. We absolutely love the badge and I'm going to post it this afternoon. I didn't want to take anything from sweet Nellie's interview. She touched all of our hearts in so many different ways. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers and we are always here for you. And I know that all of our friends in blogville that have passed over the Rainbow Bridge have met our Nellie at the door to welcome her including our sweet Mouse Girl. Sending you much love from all of us here at the Hotel Thompson - XOXO - Bacon, Hemi, Houdini, the Rock Clan and Journalist Rocky the Squirrel <3

    1. Hi Guys,
      I have been missing Nellie. She is not yet "talking to me...", however her partner in crime for many years, (Hissy Old) Licorice has been talking up a storm since she has been gone...
      Personally, I think she is too busy gallivanting around...
      Ciao

      I should write a book...
      Thanks Guys I love you lots!

  10. Tink and I are so sorry for your loss. I have quite a few Shih Tzus waiting for us on Rainbow Bridge (my last was 19 ad my first was just a baby), so I know your heart is raw every time you return home to experience anew that she is gone.

    It will not be raw forever, of course, but if my experience is any indication, there will always remain a tender spot when you think of her - forevermore. Which is as it should be. It would be truly awful if, when their loving spirits leave the earth plane, we were not to think of them again.

    Saying a prayer for your healing, and thank you so much for creating the badge for all who have been in Bacon's spotlight. What a beautiful tribute to Nellie.

  14. What a great interview. Thanks for directing us to it. Absolutely love the photo of Nellie with the flower. A painting of her wearing that flower behind her ear would be sweet. Nellie, we miss you constantly, but we know you are frolicking every day with Sammy and all your other friends. We must content ourselves with knowing you are happy and healthy again. Sending lots of love to you and Mom Barb. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy and Mom Janet
