I know Dutch told you all about how almost-death experiences make you notice more stuff. Life's little fabulous things, he calls them. Sure. Whatever. What he didn't tell you - in case you forgot - is I almost died once too. Twice if you count the time I could have almost died trying to fetch a tennis ball in the middle of a lake.

So yeah. I notice stuff too.

Well, it doesn't take a near death experience to make you notice a giant picture of BACON on the front of a newspaper. Especially when the words BACON BACON are staring at you in big fat black letters. No. Stuff like that is impossible to miss.

Unless you are my human. Then you walk right by the newspaper and the picture of the BACON and the words BACON BACON and then get totally grumpy when your starving bacon-loving pug stops to take a look.

Luckily someone (me) is paying attention because the newspaper was trying to tell us (me) that the Bacon Bacon cafe is being forced to close. I guess someone in their neighborhood hates the smell of bacon and complained or something and when the Bacon Bacon people tried to put filters in to make the smell go away the city wouldn't give them permits or whatever. So now Bacon Bacon is going bye bye.


My human said no when I asked if we could go say goodbye to Bacon Bacon. She obviously doesn't  realize this a bacon emergency because when I asked a second, third and fourth time she still said no. I will keep asking until she says yes just to shut me up - or until Bacon Bacon closes its doors. Whichever comes first.

Paws crossed for Bacon Bacon!!!

OMP Puglet! This is a disaster!!! First the Bacon Truck goes up in FLAMES and now this? The horror!!!
I hope someone comes to the rescue FAST!!! Or maybe Mr. Ike from Ike's Place can come up with a plan? He had to when his neighborhood complained of the lines and the smells of his AWESOME sammie shop.
My paws are crossed for Bacon Bacon and you.
Love Noodles

I heard our humans talking this morning about it. My mom was very destressed about the closing of it. I think we may be going there to say farewell. If you are nice to me I will ask my mom to get some for you too.

Dear Puglet,
Of course you notice things like Dutch! It's just that Dutch's scope of vision is a bit more....well... expanded. Your list of "noticeables" is generally related to :
1. bacon (raw)
2. bacon (cooked)
2. pictures of bacon
3. bacon sniffies
4. bacon establishments
5. fastfood bacon sandwiches

Kisses, Kisses,

7. cooking bacon

Puglet, I think you need to contact the Bacon Bacon owners and see if they'd be interesting in setting up shop in your apartment. That'd be a WIN WIN scenario for everyone.

Shame someone is loosing their business especially when the city won't let them try to resolve the problem first. This ecomony is bad enough, so more jobs lost, very sad.

Hope you get some bacon and not some of that dog slim stuff! Why pugs on fat posters NOT RIGHT! Our furbabies are just so full of love it plumps out their fur.

Aww, Puglet, got my fingers crossed for you to get some bacon.

Smooches from NJ.

Puglet, I hope you get your way on this one since it is a one time, last time, goodbye sorta thing. Dutch posting once a week is a good idea too and might give you more issues with which you could then entertain us with the remaining four days. I laughed today and that is a wonderful feeling! Thanks

Oh Pug...this is horrile news! We hope you get to go. It would be a great adventure if you did. Gotta tell ya this was a great post and we are sure most of us remember your near death experiences so we know you notice stuff too...just like Dutch! Yep, you are special too! Just hope you get that bacon!

Puglet, we're pressed for time but OH NO!!! And while we think your thumbs is the tops, she's on the big bad paws list with the refusal to visit bacon bacon on the eve of impending doom!!!!

Well,I have some good news for you! My humom leaves the radio on for us whenever she is gone, and I heard a news story yesterday about the new Oscar Meyer Bacon, like, BACON HOT DOGS!!!!! They should be on grocery store shelves soon. So, I guess when one door closes, another one opens! It's worth a try, don't you think?

Oh Puglet fingers and paws crossed for Bacon Bacon for you. Your human loves you so she must understand this is a major Bacon emergency and you NEED to be able to go say good bye and pay your last respects! Hope you get bacon and no more near death experiences for any of you!

Oh Puglet, that's so sad! A restaurant (especially one focused on bacon!) should never be forced to closed its doors just because of the food smells. That just doesn't seem fair!

If you were in Chicago, you could visit Baconfest with me:

How can you hate the smell of bacon?! Fingers crossed Puglet. Talk Amanda into giving you some fake bacon if you can't get the real thing. :) Much aloha.

Puglet there is good news!! The Bacon Bacon restaurant will NOT be closing :). This news comes from an NBC article: "For those worried that their beloved Bacon Bacon restaurant was going to have to close its doors forever because complaints of intense bacon smells revealed a health permitting issue, a last-minute reprieve was forged on Friday."
You can read it here! Yay :)
