Since I said I was going to write a Thanksgiving blog, I decided to write it now, the weekend before Thanksgiving. Of course, I am sure that all of you are anxious to learn what a dog like me is thankful for, especially since it is a human holiday and not a “dog days” type of celebration. Well, for starters, let me just say that it goes without saying that I am most thankful for my owners. If only I could get them to give me some of the leftovers from the big meal? Couldn’t they at least give me the turkey leg bone? Seriously, that is not so much to ask for, but think about it, us dogs just view every day the same!
While we are very thankful for you humans, we don’t rely on you to remind us to be thankful every single day. You humans would benefit too if you practiced gratitude all year! When I wake up, I don’t think, oh no, it is Monday or Saturday because it really does not matter to me. I choose each day to make it a better day for my owners and for my canine companions. I have witnessed that all it takes is batting my gorgeous brown eyes (I know, I am comfortable with my looks) at anyone and they almost always smile, unless they are heartless or way sad. But, it is not just me, eyes say so much for so many – so, let your eyes shine this Thanksgiving with kindness, peace and love!
There it is, WE humans and canine in my house are most thankful for FAMILY and FRIENDS! I do wish I could attend the Thanksgiving gathering to do some eavesdropping on everyone’s thankfulness. Feel free to comment below on what you are most thankful for this year. Happy Thanksgiving in case I don’t blog before the actual Thanksgiving.
