We’re Thankful!

Happy Thanksgiving!  Happy Dogs on Thursday! 

 November 2010 012

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… 

November 2010 067Gretchen 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!! 

November 2010 066Yawn…  Sissy here – Gretchen, GET OFF OF ME! – sorry… she’s stretched out across my back like I’m furniture. 

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?

    Happy T day, girls. Our turkey is still frozen so Mom says she’ll cook it this weekend. Still, we have lots of goodies to munch on today. You girls did good in finding a home and so did we. We try to think about the poor dogs who don’t have a warm bed and special treats. Mom says we’ll send a couple bags of biscuits to them this weekend so they can have a celebration, too.

    Oh you girls are very, very lucky indeed. Toasted pumpkin bread sounds yummy – did your momma make it? I would like the recipe please.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving girls. I have no idea how to help cook the rabbit. g

    Too bad Sissy can’t enjoy that delicious bird our mom cooks on this day. We loves it! However, we’re glad you have good people and each other, too. Enjoy!
