7 Image Story | Pug Anticipating Thanksgiving Dinner


7 Image Story | Thanksgiving with Nick the Pug  We Pugs love Thanksgiving; perhaps even more than Christmas.  Why?  Pugs love food; people food.  In fact, some Pugs I know seem to think they are really furry people.  Of, course, the rest of us know; people are just alpha Pugs.  Either way, we know we are entitled to people food.  Alpha Pugs always share.  Thanksgiving, of course, is about giving thanks; particularly for the pack (family) and food. We Pugs give thanks for all that people provide us; particularly people food.

I have never been particularly patient after smelling the aroma of fresh turkey in the kitchen. My many moods have been captured over several Thanksgiving days by one of my favorite people.  In this image, Pug Anticipating Thanksgiving Dinner, I’m giving him the look: is it really, really time to come inside for Thanksgiving dinner?  Can I really anticipate eating any time soon?  All too often, it’s hurry up and wait.

Too much waiting means I might be required to share dinner with the big dogs, the Huskies.  Although bigger dogs can be fun, they can also demand to be alpha.  Read, they get more to eat.  Those big dog Huskies have big mouths too.  Not only do they eat more, they eat it faster.  Then, they start nosing round looking to eat my food.   So, it’s time for turkey.  The table is set and the food is hot.  I’ll call the people into the dining room while the Huskies are outside.  After dinner, a nice easy chair looks inviting, even though it’s not mine.  And, the chair only has enough room for one dog and perhaps, one small kid.  Are you kidding, it’s too cold and snowy to leave my cozy chair to do my duty outside.

Misty in Montana  Misty’s a spirited school horse.  She has a habit of only obeying the “right” commands.  She determines, very quickly, whether the rider knows what they are doing or not.  If she determines she knows more than the rider, she does it her way; which usually makes the rider look like a better rider than they really are.
