Giving Thanks for Smoked Bones, Roast Chickens and Kittens

Yesterday was a day of giving thanks across the nation. You may have heard my bark of thanks when I got my Thanksgiving bone. 

We spent Thanksgiving at Grandma and Grandpa's house. They put on a fine spread.

That is one mighty fine bird! I got to help with clean-up...although they did not let me lick the fine china.

Thanksgiving is all about family. Apparently Grandma and Grandpa decided they needed a bigger family. So today Boy#2 and Susan went with them to the Humane Society to adopt some kittens. I think a dog would have been a better choice, of course. But even I can't help but feel a little melty looking at these sweet babies.

This one looks like our Sophie. I wonder what they will name her..
Her sister has a tortoise shell thing going on. She looks so soft and cute. And smart. And talented.

Susan says if I say nice things about kittens, I will get another bone.

How'd I do?

Best Thanksgiving Hats EVER

My Susan's friend Susan has an excellent sense of humor and is a fine seamstress too! She also has a very sporting family.

Best Thanksgiving hats EVER!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Herding Cats

I hear a lot of complaints about herding cats in my house. Usually it is not directed at the cats.

This video has been around for awhile. But it makes me smile. I like the river crossing the best.

It's a Miracle!

Dilution and misapplication of language is something that makes me growl and really bugs my blog pal Daughter Number Three. So this one is for her.

"If you change your perspective on what a miracle is,
you'll notice they're all around you"

I believe it is generally agreed that a miracle is an event attributed to divine intervention. If nothing else, a miracle should be attributed to an event that is statistically rare. Like a cat surviving a 20 story fall from a window (I did not push that cat!).

But now I learn from this ad that those definitions of miracle are for close-minded traditionalists. Apparently, we all just need to change our perspective. Then a miracle can be about anything we choose...even the treatment of wrinkles.

That is totally AWESOME!

I wonder how this wrinkle juice would work on these fellas?


I didn't manage to post a Halloween howdy this year. I was too busy barking at those pesky trick-or-treaters. They just kept coming! In the end, I was a good dog and I drove them all away. It took me a few days to recover. 

Here is my pick for best costume. I don't really approve of dressing up fellow canines, of course. But I do enjoy seeing Dave laugh so hard wine comes out his nose. And a good Star Wars reference always pleases Boy#1 and Boy#2. Like the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, this AT-AT costume for an Italian greyhound is just about perfect.

I am sure Katie's dog Bones got plenty of treats for putting up with her artistic endeavor - so don't bother commenting that he looks stressed. Greyhounds always look like that.

You wanna see stressed? The temperature is dropping and I know that my stoopid winter coat is lurking somewhere.

dog clothes are stoopid
