Thanksgiving is a special time!

We know all the dogs out there in the DWB world don't celebrate our American Thanksgiving but it is still a great day to stop and think of some things you are thankful for.

We are thankful for our nice warm homes and beds.

We are thankful for our DWB friends, family, FOOD, and mostly that we are really so lucky and so spoiled when there are so many doggies out there that do not have anything. We hope everyone has a GREAT Thanksgiving with their families.

Since that post was pretty deep and pretty sad I thought I would leave you with my choice for our Christmas card? Mom says NO but I think it captures the true suffering I endure at the mouth of the Doofus and would lift the spirits of EVERY doggy that does not have to live with their very own DOOFUS FACE!

gimme the hat!

I'm very thankful Josie doesn't do to me what the Doofus does to you! She used to, though. I'm thankful for a lot especially since my people now let me sleep with them.
I need a good Christmas card like you have picked out!

Tanner must be jealous that you get the hat and he didn't. Is there a "after" pic? Did you let him have the hat?

Happy Thanksgiving!

That photo is eerily reminiscent of some of my photos with The Stellanator! And, even scarier, your mama & my girl have the same taste in bananadanas. I have the santa's helper one too.

I think that photo would incite the right amount of sympathy and festivity into everydog's Christmas. Why won't your mom let you use it?

Goober love & sympathy,
