My first Thanksgiving
As I just moved to California from the UK, this was my very first Thanksgiving and I was really excited to see what all the fuss was about. I had heard there would be a big turkey invited for dinner, so that would make it five humans, one dog and one bird sitting around the dinner table together.
I wondered if I’d get a chance to chase the bird after dinner but didn’t dare to ask in case the humans would change their mind about bringing me along.
Turns out I was all wrong about a couple of things…
The turkey was indeed very big, but it was not joining us for dinner. It was dinner! I could barely believe my luck as I supervised the dinner preparations.
The humans left the bird unattended in the utility room and just as I was working on a plan for breaking and entering that room, they brought it out and placed it in the oven where it roasted for hours. In the meantime I made a big puddle of drool on the kitchen floor.
Then when the turkey was ready to eat I had another surprise sprung at me. There was no space for me by the table! I quickly switched over to plan b and turned on my starving puppy eyes look, and started to hypnotise the humans.
Minutes later I had my first morsel of turkey meat snuck down under the table – turns out Thanksgiving brings out the best in humans *Waggy tail*
Rooooo I hope you’ve all had a really pawsome Thanksgiving and got to taste some of that big bird! *Waggy tail*
