With all the drama and trauma of what will from this point forward be referred to as the Orb Ordeal, we never talked about Thanksgiving! The holiday here in Canada was celebrated on October 14. It will be celebrated in the US on November 28.
Thanksgiving is a day to sit back and reflect on all we have to be thankful for. It’s also a day when many North Americans gather with family and friends and eat until their clothing is too tight. The good news for us dogs is the potential for leftovers – and more walks, because humans feel they need more exercise after all that food.
Thanksgiving is a great day to reflect on the many good things in our lives – things that we may take for granted. Like full food bowls, clean water, toys to chew on, and even that dreadful attire. Which DOES keep us dry in bad weather.
Food, clothing, shelter, health, family and friends – they are all the big thank you items. But really we should be thankful on a daily basis- for the little things that we may not always think about. For example, waking up in the morning after a night with no seizures. Getting out for a good morning walk – before the rain starts. Good poops. A newspaper that is delivered on time – and that the FG carries and doesn’t shred. A huge tomato crop. Beautiful fall colors. An encouraging note from a blog reader.
Life can be tough at times – like when you have your orbs removed. But in the big book of your life story, you will hopefully add up the many things to be thankful for in all your chapters and you will see that life is good -very good. And it’s extra good if you are owned by a dog.
Thanks for reading!
Have a good one. Peace and paws up.
