It’s MY day!

It’s the best day of the year. I can eat all I want (as long as nobody’s looking) and not get yelled at for doing it. I’ve got a lot of things to be thankful for, most rescues do. So I’m going to complain.  Yup, it’s time to let it all hang out. Two of the guests coming for dinner are from Ontario. They spend the winter here and can only be here 180 days without getting hit by the governments of both countries (Canada takes benefits away and the US would tax them). They leave AFTER Canadian Thanksgiving Day which is the second Monday of October. They get here in plenty of time for US Thanksgiving Day. Yup, I only get one and they get TWO! Is this fair? If you don’t hear from me for a while, I will have stowed away in their vehicle and will be heading to Canada to get on this two Thanksgivings gravy train. I’ll even learn “Jour de l’Action de grâce” and sneak over to Quebec for some French food.

Kaci has been doing very well at her ‘mooch pooch’ training.  I’m promoting her from the rank of Apprentice Mooch Pooch to Intern Assistant to the Master Mooch Pooch (moi, of course) and if she keeps it up, she’ll earn the rank of Assistant and then Full Mooch Pooch.  Of course she would have a way to go to be a Master Mooch Pooch. As I promised (see here), she’s earned a bowl of her own. What better day to give it to her in a presentation ceremony. The anticipation is killing her:

Kaci, you’ve earned it. This bowl’s for you!

She’s learning fast. Her acceptance speech was “Enough of this already, let’s chow down”.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. That includes you who aren’t in the US-you’re adopted for the day so chow down!

Now, where’s my pie? I think Stuart stole it.

  1. Love Kaci’s bowl:-) Good luck with your trip to Canada!

  2. Kyla, ever since Kaci came on board, you have become a soft mushie “Mooch Pooch”.
    How was the B…..?

    Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, your one of a few real PALS, so we give thanks on this day to you for being such a good furiend!!!

    Susie, Sidebite, Shadow & Family

    • There’s no such thing as a good b… . I had a lot of water to shake off but company is coming for Thanksgiving and that might make it worth it. Yup, Kaci and I love you guys also.

  3. Well done Kaci on your promotion 🙂 what a great bowl..Stuff ya face and enjoy Thanksgiving Kyla 🙂 xxooxx

    Mollie and Alfie

  4. your bowls are very cool – thanks for adopting me for today – can I get a one-day-greencard?

    • Certainly-but today only. You wouldn’t want it the other 364 days. Compared to today, the other days are just the same old stuff. Thanksgiving is the best, but I’m prejudiced.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving you two & congrats on finally getting your own bowl Kaci! BON APPETITE!
    wally & sammy

  6. May many extra things fall into your and Kaci’s beautiful bowls today – or on the floor! Happy Thanksgiving Furiends!
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy

  7. The floor stuff has that extra added seasoning that makes it taste so much better. It also starts with quality stuff because it is Their food.

  8. We saw your pie at Stuart’s….but we think there’ll be one piece left, he looked pretty full.

    Love your bowls girls, we only have cheap grocery store plastic….but the food isn’t in them very long!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  9. I love the bowls!! So cuuuute!! My dogs also have their own bowls but they love to finish off the other dog’s bowl haha

  10. Kaci’s bowl is smaller, she will be a true master when she figures out her bowl is smaller.
    Sweet William The Scot

    • It’s not the size of the bowl but the amount of food in the bowl. I’d trade bowls if there were more food in the smaller one. Can’t fool a Master Mooch Pooch.

  11. You’re right. I did. Uurp.

    Aroooo! Stuart

  12. Oh, I like your bowls, very nice!

  13. […] First, Kyla and Kenzie had their own food bowls that were unmistakably theirs. Then Kaci came and got one with a ceremony […]

  14. Who doesn’t love something with your name on it 😉
