Happy Thanksgiving


Today is Thanksgiving Monday in Canada. The dogs wanted to help with the dinner by catching us a turkey from this gang of turkeys that often visits our yard. This is the Johnson's. They have been living around our house since spring. The family is dad Joe, moms Thelma and Louise, and at last count 11 babies, who don't look much like babies anymore. Earlier in the spring there were at least 13 babies, so a few have been lost, but overall, the family has done well this year. Hailey would like to catch a turkey to eat. Phod loves to chase them so they all fly up into the trees. As soon as they are up, he leaves them alone.

As it is Thanksgiving we reflect on all we have to be thankful for.  Lady and Man have great jobs. We have a great house, with lots to eat. The pups have lots of toys and treats. We have wonderful friends and family. We are all healthy. We get to spend time with our friends in Blogville. We have a lot to be thankful for.

Today we will count our blessings and then tomorrow we will be back to normal and complaining about stupid little things that are really first world problems! We will try and remember how lucky we are every day and not just one weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving

  11. Happy Thanksgiving. It is a time to reflect on all that we have instead of life's annoyances getting in the way. Enjoy your turkey--we loved our turkey necks. We are envious that you have turkeys to chase!
