A Thanksgiving meal for your dog

It’s hard to believe that next week is Thanksgiving already. Why does the time go by faster as we get older? Shouldn’t it be that it slows down as we do when we get older?

The one thing I like (in my young age, lol) is not having to cook all of the holiday meals. That’s the children’s job now! Tom, I and Austin had Thanksgiving at my daughters two years in a row. This year we will be going there again and with a new addition to the family ( a four legged one, I’m not that young ) It will prove interesting when her two dogs and mine get together in a houseful of relatives coming out of the woodwork. (Better her than me) I can just see four hungry fur babies just waiting for something to hit the floor. And as smart as these guys are, I wouldn’t put it pass them to plan their moves. They know their humans better than we know them.

If they haven’t knocked over the desert table, or ran off with the turkey, I guess you could say they deserve a little Thanksgiving meal too! Last year I let Austin have a little turkey gravy and he ended up with diarrhea (Yuk) but he recovered quick. The ASPCA has some very good tips for what your dog can eat and not eat. They claim that a little gravy will not hurt him, but I don’t think Austin will get anymore, any time soon! We all know that turkey bones are a no no, but the meat on them is just waiting to be desired!

Green beans are great, providing your dog likes them. Austin has been eating green beans, carrots, sweet potatoes and cucumbers since he was a puppy! Not all at once of course (though he would like too!)

So Happy Thanksgiving everyone, enjoy and share just a little with your buddies!
