Happy Thanksgiving

| November 23, 2010

I thought I would offer my Thanksgiving wishes a few days early this year.

As I’m sure many of you are busy preparing for the holiday, you might not have the luxury of getting on the computer for the next few days.

If I’m a bit late in approving and responding to comments it’s because I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year so the prep work is on me. Unfortunately, my daughter’s cheerleading team is having a competition today (2 days before Thanksgiving) which means that all prep stops after 1:00 today.

Not My Dog
This is not my dog. He refused to have his picture associated with this post so I had to use a substitute.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of sitting through a cheerleading competition, you should know that these things last for hours (and I mean hours). The good thing about the long hiatus from preparing for Thanksgiving is that it will give my dog time to get over his less than pleasant odor condition.

Hazards of Dog Treats

You see, as I’ve been cooking through the day, I’ve been giving the dog some treats that he usually doesn’t get. When food accidentally falls on the floor, I toss some of it over to Mr. Vacuum and he laps it up. Although I’m careful not to give him anything harmful, I guess one of the ingredients didn’t agree with him. It created a nuclear gas bomb on the inside of his belly and he loves time releasing it.

Since he and I are home most of the time, he follows me wherever I go. His time released bombs have been KILLING me! Does anyone know of a tail activated room freshener?

Anyway, enough of my dog’s gas condition. As freelance writers we can handle anything. We can work around cheerleading schedules, Thanksgiving prep work and…pooch bombs!

Here’s to wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    Too funny, Felicia! I can’t say that I blame your poor pooch for not wanting his picture shown. Happy Thanksgiving to you, as well:)
