Happy Thanksgiving my friends!
I have a busy day ahead of me! I have to get this bird ready for the oven and then fix all the trimmings to go along with it. Mom is all hands in the kitchen, so I like to help her out! As you know I love working in the kitchen and I am pretty good at what I do too!
When I’m done, this bird in a bag will need to look like this one! Oh yum! No worries, my sisters and I may get a taste of this bird, but we are looking forward to the gizzards and stuff that we cook up for ourselves. Thanksgiving is definitely a day of drool with all the tasty smells in the house!
I thought today would be a great day to think about some of the things I am grateful for. I will share a few with you below.
- A wonderful home! There are so many pets that don’t have any home at all and that is so sad. My siblings and I are so loved and lucky to have a roof over our heads and almost anything we could want in life.
- I’m thankful everyone in my family is healthy. We have all had our issues, but we are so grateful to be in fairly good health.
- I would never forget all my special friends, meaning my online community fans, friends, and fellow Blogville residents. Who would have thought three years ago when I started my “empire” I would make so many precious friends and have such wonderful support from so many great humans and pets!
- For a dog, I have experienced a lot, and I’m grateful for my mom and her wanting my sisters and I to get out and experience as much of the world as we can.
- Wabbits. I am so thankful for those furry creatures, life would be a total bore without wabbits. I am not thankful for squirrels as they tease and don’t play fair with dogs.
Those are just a few things I’m grateful for today, on Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for?
I best get to the kitchen and start working on that Turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving to Emma, Katie, Bailie, and Joy! Oh, and to Burt and his sister (can’t remember her name at the moment.) It is day to be thankful in our house too. XOXO Sparkle the PBGV
Happy Thanksgiving to you, your fur siblings and your Mom! You would love it here today, being from Duluth! Four inches of fresh snow, -8, and sunshine! Bailie and I were totally wild on our walk! Cold crispy air makes us nuts.
Emma, I’m thankful for you! And I’m sure your mom is thankful that she doesn’t have to cook today. Man, I sure wish Flash and Patches could cook!
I just love to cook. My hope is that I get that bird finishes while Mom naps so I don’t have to share with her! I’m thankful for you, Jones, and wabbit jerky!
Murphy & Stanley says
Wow, we can tell there is going to be a feast at your house today! Thanks for being part of the neighborhood!

Had to cut our walk short as it was -8, but we did extra yesterday, so I think we can splurge today! Happy Thanksgiving!

I knew you’d have your paws in the kitchen today! I am letting mom to the cooking and I have volunteered to be the taste tester and chief sniffer! I am thankful that you are my sweetie! XXOO Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family ♥ ♥ Bentley

It is a terrible torture, but one I put up with. I actually did steal a bite of the bird today and got my furry behind in some trouble!

Amber DaWeenie says
Wishing you a very Hap-Pee Thanksgiving and lots of turkey! That bird sure looks yummy!
I managed to steal a nice bite of it, and it sure was tasty!
karen Meldrum says
Happy Thanksgiving! We ended up making a whole second turkey! Hope mom will treat us some in appreciation for us staying out of her cooing way – well…I did, Lucy – not so much. You would think she is a puppy, maybe she is in her second puppy hood?? She is 7/24 go, go go – but she is a PBGV, so she can’t help herself.
I hear the PBGV’s are much more hyper. I’m real mellow unless there is a wabbit or squirrel. I did get in trouble, though as I sneaked in and grabbed a piece of the bird off the counter. Normally I don’t do things like that but I couldn’t resist. Hope you were rewarded for being well behaved!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you too.
Millie & Walter
Hope you had a yummy, smelly day at your house!! 😛
We sure did! Hope yours was just as great.
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving too!
Cascadian Nomads says
Amelia, Wilhelm, Brychwyn and Huxley tried very hard to help in the kitchen yesterday but our kitchen is just too small for all those paws! I am not sure what Leo thought of that giant bird in the oven but he was an oddly quiet and well behaved cockatoo during yesterday’s festivities… hmm… Happy Thanksgiving to you and your whole lovely family Emma! We are very grateful to know you and appreciate you joining the Share Gratitude hop.
Thank you. I bet it is scary for a bird to see a bird get cooked! Yikes! Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!
Blogville is a wonderful place for meeting new furiends! I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday!
We love Blogville and are so grateful to be a part of it. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
