“What we are thankful for” by Kobi and company.
Kobi: OK, Mommy says we has to tell what we are thankful for. I is most thankful for treats, and supper twice a day. Cricket, what is you most thankful for?
Cricket: Oh! Treats and supper too! And my balls! Laying in front of the woodstove on the cold winter days!
Sheba & Moses: Balls, yes!! And for our fenced in yard that we cans play ball in! And our swimming pool in the summer to cool off in!
Kobi: The woodstove is my favorites too. And I like to go out in the yard and explore as much as I want to. I don’ts have to go on a leash. ‘Cept when Mommy takes me for walks, which I also is thankful for. And rides in the car, soes I can see stuff and whine at it, and sometimes go different places to walk!
Samantha: I likes the woodstove too!! Ands I like laying in the bed by the windows soes I can look outside and sometimes the sunshine is right on me!
Conrad: The satellite TV box is nice and warm and cozy too. And no one bothers me there. I am thankful for that.
Cricket: I is thankful for my brothers and my sissy. And even the cat ones. Sometimes they let me chase them, which is fun. Until Mommy or Daddy yells at me. But I always stop.
Moses: I is thankful for fresh water to drink!! I LOVE fresh water, right when it’s just poured into the bowl! Sometimes I has to go to the sink to remind Mommy & Daddy though.
Sheba: I is thankful for our automatic doors!
Kobi: They are not automatic.
Sheba: But every time I go to it, it magically opens!
Kobi: Mommy and Daddy do that.
Sheba: OH. I must wear them out then. Hee hee.
Conrad: You dogs are stupid. My food dish is automatic. I just go up on the counter and it magically appears, full of food.
Kobi: That’s Mommy and Daddy too.
Conrad: OH. Whatever. Hey! I like the woodstove too, but you dogs are always hogging it. Samantha and I have to wait until you all go to bed at night to get our turn. So I am thankful that you go to bed upstairs at night!
Samantha: I is thankful for the screened in porch, which they built just for me. So I can lay out there in the summer and pretend I am really outside.
Kobi: And let’s not forget all the plates we get to lick! I is also thankful for the cats because they shares their food with us….just some little nibbles when they are done. And we get to lick their bowls too whens they have the canned food!
ALL: Most of all we are thankful for Mommy and Daddy who love us so much, and give us all these nice things, and also let us sleep in their bed!!
Mommy: And Daddy and I are so thankful for all of you too.
Oh my goodness, this is TOO adorable, Jan—–oh, so exactly what they all must be thinking–and just SO much a reminder overall of what joy pets bring to our lives!! Sooooo thankful for that on this Thanksgiving Day!!
