Happy Thanksgiving to all USA doggies and happy Thursday to everydog else!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our fur buddies in the USA! Happy Thursday to everyone else! We are waiting, patiently, for our turkey dinner. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, our mom cooks a ginormous dinner and no one comes to eat it except Mom, Dad and of course US!

Dad always asks when the company is arriving and Mom always tells him no one is coming! We live a looooong way from all of our relatives. Years and years ago, Mom and Dad went to someone else's house for Thanksgiving dinner and Mom said it didn't seem like Thanksgiving because she didn't get many of the foods that she had grown up with. The next year, she started cooking the big dinner whether anyone was coming or not.

Now, we know that you don't know our mom very well, but we want to tell you a little secret about her. She hardly ever cooks! Yep, that's right...our dad does about 90% of the cooking that goes on in our house. Mom KNOWS how to cook...she just doesn't do it very often! Our dad, on the other paw, cooks all the time! He even makes Aire-stew just for US doggies! He starts out with rice and lots of meat and puts all kinds of yummy stuff in it. We can always tell when he's cooking for us and we line up behind him when he's standing at the stove.
We are pretty sure we will be getting in some trouble this afternoon. When Dad carves the turkey, all 3 of us will be right at his feet. One of us will Aire-snap one of the other furkids and the fight will be ON! It happens every time Dad carves some kind of meat! Hey, getting in trouble for that is sooooo worth it! After all, we are MEATITARIANS! And we are each afraid that somedog else will get the first bite...or maybe somedog else will get MORE bites!
On a different subject, our DWB Christmas cards are all ready to go. Well, the snail mail ones are, anyway. They will be going in the mail tomorrow, so watch your mailboxes! Our personal secretary still has to do the e-cards. She thinks she has figured out how to do them, so watch for us in your e-mail too!
Well, every buddy, we are going back to nap and count down to turkey time!

bol--your mom sounds exactly like mine! Her family is 1000 miles away in VA. And she stays with us on T-day. She NEVER cooks except on this day for exactly the same reason==nobody makes the foods she grew up with. We have a particular kind of stuffing, a particular gravy and fruit salad. AND, she makes enough for 20--and NOT 20 beagles unfortunately. We are so enjoying the day--sunny and almost warm. And she says it is a day to be thankful, esp. for friends. We are thankful that you are our friends! Have a wonderful day.

love & wags,

Hey, Poppy, Penny & Patches!!

I have been missing my Airegirls and had to come by to deliver a little Thanksgiving goober love to the three sassiest and cutest Airepups in Georgia!

Glad to hear you were going to get plenty of turkey ~ that's the ONLY way to celebrate if you ask me.

Since Stella & I have been gone from blogging for awhile, we're going to have to catch up with all you've been doing over the last few weeks. Know that we've been thinking about you even though we haven't been stopping by to tell you so.

Please pass around the Thanksgiving goober smooches I'm sending your way. There's plenty to go around!

Goober love,

My mom didn't cook the turkey but she brought some home for me. Turkey and sardines are my faves!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hey girls! We just had Daddy, Mumsie and Bruvver here and Mumsie cooked all day so we've been eatin' leftovers like there is no tomorrow!!!!

We helped make the stuffing...that was the best part!

Oh...I got stuck under the deck today. Mumsie was glad she didn't have to call the fire department. I was just tryin' to dig a hole to see Noah...and Um well, I fell in and got stuck.

We all got 2 baths today EACH! Water only...Mumsie wasn't really pleased by it either....MUD ROCKS!

Oh we're a bit late for wishing you a happy Thanksgiving but we hope you had a great one. How was the dinner? Hope the fight over the turkey was mild.

Pedro said...

Woo hoo! I got my card from you guys!!! My mom STILL hasn't done ours..... Maybe you'll get ours in time for Valentines Day? I got some turkey and it was good! My dad does the day-to-day dinner cooking but my mom always does the special occassions. My dad gets home from work much earlier than my mom. Mom is always very tired when she gets home too cause her work day is long. She made a great Thanksgiving feast though :P

Well by now your tasty turkey will be long gone.

I hope you all enjoyed it!

I have some chicken left overs for my tea tonight, plus some left over fried rice, I don't know what's up with my hooooomans leaving so much food for me, but I am not going to complain!

love and many licks, Marvin xxxx

missouri auto insurance You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post. Maria , auto insurance texas
