i think Thanksgiving is the greatest thing ever. Dogmom said i was supposed to find things to be thankful for. she didn’t tell me that Thanksgiving is days in a row of dinner extravaganza!!!
first, Dogmom stayed home from work on a day she leaves, so i knew something was going to happen. we got to take a car ride, and when we got out of the car we saw the Fun House where my dogcousin lives. i like this house because it is big for running around, and it has nice floors to hurry up on, and many smells in many corners. there are also many toys in this house, and they are all for dogs!! there were many many good food smells inside, and a lot of food all over. i played with many toys and watched everybody make food for a long time. mostly i played with toys.
then a lot of people i didn’t know yet came to the house, and i got to meet them. they must have smelled the food. the people brought more food with them, so they got to stay. after a long time of talking, all the food went on a big table, and all the people sat down and ate a lot for a long time. the eating took a really really long time, and i was waiting the whole time, and i only whined a little. after they were finally finished all that talking and eating, Dogmom gave me some food too and said Happy Thanksgiving!! that was the best part.
i learned a new food. i learned that i love turkey. turkey is Great. it’s even greater than eggs!! it might be even greater than carrots, too…. well, maybe. it didn’t take me a very long time to eat my turkey. i wonder why people eat so slow? after everybody and every dog finished eating, there was more talking and some naps. i don’t remember because i was playing a lot. later some people sat at a smaller table with lots of little round chips and big stacks of hard paper that didn’t taste very good, and i wasn’t supposed to eat when they fell on the floor. there was even more food!
i was tired after that day, but then it happened again the next day! there were no new people, and only the people that lived in the Fun House were there eating that day. i did a lot more playing. we didn’t go to the Fun House again after that, but on the next couple days i got to eat more turkey that Dogmom brought home.
the other thing i like best about Thanksgiving is that both of my people got to stay home many days in a row with me! we went for walks, and took naps, and played a lot, and it was really fun! i like when they stay home. we have a good time.
one day on Thanksiving i also learned that the other paw has a cookie name too– it’s “shake hands”. i got to shake hands with all my new people friends at Thanksgiving, and i got a lot of cookies. sometimes i even got turkey! i like Turkey.
i think Thanksgiving is the best People Thing ever!
