I love Thanksgiving day. My Hunny is home, so we relax. The kids sleep till practically noon, since they’re teenagers, so Hunny and I get to chill in peace and quiet. No TV. No bouncing children. The turkey goes in the oven just after six AM. I LOVE IT. And the dogs get more of our attention.
Typically people talk about what they’re thankful for on Thanksgiving. I did that yesterday. Today I’d like to list things my dogs are thankful for. Before I do, let me say that I am thankful for all of you. In the last year and a half I’ve gotten to know some of you dog bloggers quite well and I’m richer for the experience. I count you as friends. Thank you for being good friends.
Patches is thankful for this Windee that I found in a box. It was leftover from last month’s treats and I found it this morning, just in time for Thanksgiving!
Flash is thankful for the Windee as well. He’s pretending not to be.
Did you know that you can snap a twelve inch Windee in half if you exert enough pressure? A beef trachea just cracks if you put it over your knee and push the ends REALLY HARD.
Just so you know, Flash really did love the Windee. Beef trachea is good for my senior dogs, since it’s a natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin.
Other things my dogs are thankful for? That Jimmy is now in an enclosed yard.
Definitely one of the things my dogs are thankful for.
Flash and Patches are also grateful that I don’t often try to dress them up, specifically things on their heads.
Last, but never least, my dogs are thankful for their family. They love us and protect us from the outside world. And from squirrels. And postmen. And blowing leaves. And shadows on the wall. And every tiny noise that I can’t hear. But mostly they’re just thankful for their family.
Happy Thanksgiving, American friends! For the rest of you, happy Thursday! I hope that all is well with you and yours. Come back tomorrow and I’ll be answering the questions asked in the comments all week!
Until I write again …
