It's tempting to let the critters partake in the holiday feasting, but it's not really a great idea. Much of what's on the table - and most of what's in the garbage - could cause them problems. Click here to read some sensible tips for keeping everyone happy and healthy on Thanksgiving.
Now, getting to the heart of the holiday: the "thanks'' part. I've got a lot to be grateful for, not the least of which are my wonderful and entertaining dogs and stepdogs: Gracie, Shadow, Moose, Harley and Cowboy. I can't imagine life without their antics and inquisitive looks, their furry and reassuring presence on my bed, their unqualified, tail-wagging affection and enthusiasm when I come home from work. I'm sure everyone reading this knows exactly what I mean and feels equally thankful for their own critters.
Enjoy the holiday. If you have to work, may it be an easy day.
