Thanksgiving leftovers...

Yesterday was Thanksgiving, and as always the whole family came to our house for the big meal. It was quite a day for both people and dogs alike and everyone has a very nice time. Mom made the big turkey and after all the humans were done stuffing their faces she treated us dogs to a taste of this delicious bird. It was my first time tasting turkey. I know it sounds like a cliche, but to me it really does taste chicken.

Dad took a bunch of pictures so I thought it might be nice to post a few so my readers can see how we spend our Thanksgiving holiday.

My day started with a little grooming. The weather was fair so Mom set up her grooming table out on the patio. It was really quite nice.

Then she groomed Zoe, who really needed a good brushing. She was a mess.

Afterwards we all posed for a cute family photo.

This year someone brought a little person to our house for dinner.
Her name was Autumn and she was just about my size.

Everyone took turns carrying the little person around

At one point she tried to climb on to my back, but I wouldn't let her.
I guess she thought I was a pony.

Zoe is just like me, a real party animal.

I notice whenever humans get together they like to hang out in the kitchen.
Especially when there's food.

Like most American families who celebrate Thanksgiving there was a little football.

Here's another game they seem to like. I don't know what it's called, but it's played when one fat, over stuffed human taunts hungry dogs with a small bag of food, and then refuses to give us any.

I don't know what the point of this game is, but if they insist on playing it again next year, I'm afraid somebody is going to lose a finger.

Like all good parties there was a fair amount of texting and drinking going on.

Later there was some more drinking, and a little smoking as well.

Eventually everyone lets their hair down and the real entertainment starts.

Of course in the end, Thanksgiving it all about turkeys, mash-potatoes and pumpkin pie.

I can't say it's as much fun for dogs as it is for humans, but at least we're not expected to help clean up the mess afterwards.
Sometimes it just feels good to be a dog.
I think now it's time to take a nap.
I'm already looking forward to next year.
