A Thankful Hound

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing a little about what’s on my mind.

This weekend was pretty low on adventures, for several reasons.  My grandpaw was in the hospital last week, and my humans were busy visiting him.  When he went home, they were pretty worn out from keeping up with all their business, so relaxing was in order.  It also got cold here.  From Thursday night to Saturday morning, it dropped over fifty degrees.  To say it was a shock to the system is an understatement.  I don’t know how humans expect us to pee outside when it gets frozen in the pipes, if you know what I mean.   Anyway, the long and short of it is that it was a good weekend to mostly stay at home, enjoy warm blankets and snuggle with our favorite humans.

It gave me time to think about a few things.

The humans are celebrating Thanksgiving this week.  They’ll be feasting and spending time together.  There will be games and television, most likely, too.  We dogs are staying at home to watch the dog show, and enjoying our Thanksgiving dinner in a can.  I’m sure there will be naps taken by everyone.

The whole purpose of the big day, though, is to celebrate what you’re thankful for.  I started thinking about what I’m thankful for and realized that I’m a very thankful hound.  I was adopted as a young hound and only spent a few weeks at the adoption kennel.  I have a family who thinks I’m the best dog ever.  I’m healthy and enjoying my senior years.  I still have plenty of adventures and fan clubs at the nursing homes.  I have fancy collars and soft beds.  Best of all, my human takes me to get puppucinos when she can.  All in all, I lead a charmed life.

I’ve noticed a lot of humans thinking about what they don’t have lately.  When I started thinking about what I do have, it made me feel a lot better and really special.  Not many dogs have it as good as I do.  At least, I don’t think they do.  I mean, I like to hope that every dog out there is eating special food on Thursday and living the dream, but I know a lot of them aren’t.  So, this week, I’m spending my time thinking about all the great things I have, not because I want to brag, but because I don’t want to take any of them for granted.  If you’re reading this today, I hope you’ll chime in and tell me at least one thing that you’re thankful for.  I guarantee that you’ll feel blessed.
