Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Dogs on Thursday!
Sissy’s eyes looked a lot like that last night. Here, she’s squinting, but last night, she had another raging case of allergy eyes. It’s frightening, actually… Hounds have a very pronounced third eyelid, and that film creeps up so her whole eye is cloudy, and yet red, all at the same time. She’s miserable when that happens, so after a couple of doses of benadryl and that eye ointment she hates until it starts to work, she took turns letting the humans hold her and talk sweet to her.
This morning, she’s bright-eyed, or was. It seems the Macy’s parade bores her, and she’s gone to sleep.
Wait… Gretchen is standing on Sis’s head and my lap…
Gretchen here! I wanted to wish everyone in the States a very happy Thanksgiving. We’re really, really blessed to have it made with our Mama and Dadaw. Sissy should wake up and share her thanks too, because she definitely landed in the right home. Dadaw even has a friend rabbit hunting this weekend, and has secured some of the only meat Sissy’s supposed to eat for her. Mama’s never fixed rabbit, so anyone with experience, tell her what to do!!
Anyway, I am really happy to be here, with my head in Mama’s lap while she types for us. But since I’m awake, how ’bout some of that toasted pumpkin bread, huh? Anybody else want some? I think Mama has some spiced chai to share too… Gretchen, why don’t you GET OFF ME and go take orders?
