Happy Thanksgiving! Turkey, Parades and the National Dog Show Presented by Purina

Today is the day that many of us in the U.S. celebrate Thanksgiving.  While humans stuff their faces with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and calorie-laden desserts, doggies all over the world are giving thanks!

Here is a short list of the MANY things I am thankful for!

  • My Mom and Dad
  • Cody
  • Delicious food
  • Bones
  • a comfy home
  • My blogging buddies
  • and soooo much more!

I am also thankful that today I get the TV all to myself and I can watch:

THE NATIONAL DOG SHOW PRESENTED BY PURINA

TODAY ON NBC FOLLOWING

THE MACY’S PARADE

FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T WATCH TODAY

(like my Mom and Dad)

THE SHOW WILL BE REPEATED

FRIDAY NIGHT  8-10 p.m. ET ON NBC!

The NBC Thanksgiving Day special, “The National Dog Show Presented by Purina®,” will crown one of America’s great purebreds as its 2012 champion on Thanksgiving Day, bringing canine competition and entertainment into America’s living rooms for the 11th year.

This show is impawtant to me since I am a pure-bred kinda guy and I am registered with the AKC. The show  is watched annually by a total of almost 20 million viewers. Over 170 breeds vie for “Best in Show” honors in the tradition-rich Kennel Club of Philadelphia competition.

Can you guess what group of doggies I will be BARKING FOR?

Why the HERDING GROUP of course!!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota

A Thanksgiving Poem


‘Twas the night of Thanksgiving,
But I just couldn’t sleep
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned –
The dark meat and white
But I fought the temptation
With all of my might.

Tossing and turning
With anticipation
The thought of a snack
Became infatuation.

So, I raced to the kitchen,
Flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge,
Full of goodies galore.

I gobbled up turkey
And buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots,
Beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling
So plump and so round,
‘Til all of a sudden,
I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling,
Floating into the sky
With a mouthful of pudding
And a handful of pie.

But, I managed to yell
As I soared past the trees….
Happy eating to all –
Pass the cranberries, please.

May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes ‘n gravy
Have nary a lump,
May your yams be delicious
May your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off of your thighs.

May your Thanksgiving be blessed!!
