Yummy! Let’s eat.
This was the first year that I did not see Cynthia cook for hours on end. For a change, this Thanksgiving day she decided to cook less things and take a nap. That is something unprecedented for her, but I was glad. Every year she asks me, “Why do you think my feet and legs hurt me?” To what I respond, “Because you’ve been on your feet cooking for hours.” And then she says, “Oh,” as if she has not asked me the same question year after year.
Anyway, one tradition for sure we have in our family/pack is to take pictures every year. Why? Aside from the memories we are able to immortalize, the year we didn’t take pictures we had a yucky year to say the least. Alex, of course, even after 12 years with us has not learned how to pose. But you know what? That’s ok. At least we get to laugh at the pictures we “tried” to take of all of us.
After we all ate, yes Alex got to eat turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and veggies, we went out for a walk to see if we could burn some of those calories.
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. For those traveling back home, have a safe and uneventful trip, and for those already at home, take a nap, you earned it.
For some odd reason I keep typing 2014 rather than 2013. Boy, talk about being ahead of time. Anyway, I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving along with your furry children and family.
One thing we always do during Thanksgiving is take a lot of pictures. One year we failed to do so and the following year was not a very good one. We took so many pictures and only one came out pretty good. Most of them looked like the above photo.
After we finished our Thanksgiving dinner, we fed Alex a nice portion of turkey, Cynthia took the most inner part of the turkey that did not have any seasoning, and mixed it with her kibble, and you know what? That girl inhaled her food. By the way, do not feed your dog turkey, chicken, pork, etc., in large quantities. The only reason Alex got a nice helping of turkey is because I mix her kibble with human food on a regular basis, lately 1/2 kibble 1/2 human food so she is used to it and I always make sure that there is no seasoning added to her food. Alex, in the above picture, got inpatient and was leaving because Cynthia was taking too long to put the turkey away.
Of course she made a U-turn when she saw Cynthia getting ready to put away the turkey for she wanted to “help” her with this task. What a helpful child. Can you see how attentive she is? We had a great Thanksgiving because we were all toghether and we hope all of you did the same.

Alex and Sienna sunbathing
Most of the doggies that stay with us, love to sunbathe and the most sought out place in my house is by the sliding door that leads to the deck, as you can see by this picture.
Josie, Alex, and Sienna
Darn it! I had the tv on and someone rang the bell. The sounds from a tv set nowdays is so realistic that it woke up the kids. They really thought there was someone at the door, but it was just the tv. Also, I put a bigger bed for Sienna, but she prefers her little one.
Josie, a beautiful weimaraner, wanted her picture taken all by herself and I, of course, obliged.
I did not get a chance to take a picture of all of them asleep, but I’ll try next time. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy your loved ones.
