Howdy blogaroos! Squirmy here on Wednesday- the day before Thursday – and the day before one of the biggest holidays in the US- Thanksgiving. We had our Thanksgiving back in October here in Canada – but given that the Warden is a dual citizen, she can actually celebrate twice. Which is great because there are lots of things to be grateful for. Things like well-behaved canines!

For our US canine buddies, we do have some warnings about this big-eating holiday. Watch what you eat! Here’s a good article about what we can and cannot have:

So hold off on the fatty foods like gravy and load up on the veggies. With a little turkey on the side.

The other big event besides the food-fest on Thanksgiving, is the National Dog Show. Lots of canines strutting their stuff in conformation, and in agility as well. Check out some facts about this year”s show:

We’ll be watching and cheering on the PONs and Picards. Hopefully they aren’t preempted for a commercial break.

You can also spend some time watching the Macy’s parade. I checked out the giant balloon line-up and I see at least three dogs featured – including of course, our old favorite Snoopy. I didn’t count the number of cat balloons. I’m not quite sure what the dogs in this house would do if they saw those giant things. I think the Coyote”s brain would explode. His eyeballs bug out when he sees a bird. Imagine giant Snoopy….

Anyway, whether you are in the US or not tomorrow, it doesn’t hurt to take a moment and think of the many things you have to be thankful for. Sometimes life can seem heavy and kinda crazy – but there is always something to be grateful for. A hot cup of coffee, a dog treat, a sunny day, a dog treat, a message from a friend, a dog who sits when asked, oh and a dog treat… don’t have to win a lotto to be thankful. Although it would buy lots of treats….Nope – you’ve already won the lotto- it’s called life. And if you are owned by or ever have been owned by a dog – you know exactly what I mean.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe,
