Hailey: I am thankful for mischief, all my new puzzle toys, getting lots of treats, great smells, humping Nin, that Baggy hasn't killed me yet, that Phod lets me be the boss and for my people (when they are being patient and understanding with me).
Zaphod: I am thankful for my loving people and my Hailey and my cats and getting brushed and always having a full belly, not having to slay dragons anymore and my ball. I think I am most thankful for my ball.
[Note: we refer to Phod's abusive past as the time he slayed dragons. We imagine he slayed the dragon and ran free and this is when he was found and rescued].
Nin: What is thankful?
Bagheera: I will be thankful when I want to be thankful, not when you tell me to be thankful. But so you will leave me alone, I am thankful I am still alive to enjoy the great sunbeams in this house. I am also thankful that the dogs and Nin are my minions.
The Lady: I am thankful for all the blessings in our lives. We have a great house, we have great jobs, we have great family and friends, and we have our health. Everyday I am thankful for my growing patience to help me deal with whatever life throws at me! I am always thankful for Blogville and all our Blogville friends too.
Happy Thanksgiving to all. Wishing you too much turkey and lots of love and laughter with friends and family.
Now the mischief.
Hailey: I would describe what happened as an over enthusiasm, not mischief.
|See how far ahead Bar and Tendra got to go because|
of Le and Phod's mischief.
Hailey: If you didn't want us to get so excited when we saw other dogs, you shouldn't have moved us to a place with so few friends to see on our walks. Or you should take us to the city to the dog park every day. See this is clearly your fault. I call mischief on you!
Lady: Sigh! I will say that I was very proud of all 4 of you. We were able to go into the city for dinner and leave your 4 alone and you were all good. (The cats were safe and sound in the laundry room). I must admit, while your behaviour on Saturdays walk was not acceptable, for the most part you did an awesome job being hosts to 2 other dogs. You were also a good walker on Sunday. I am proud of you.
Hailey: Of course you are. I am awesome and I am glad you are finally appreciating my awesomeness. To my dog friends, was my behaviour mischief or just excitement?
