Well, Thanksgiving dinner was something this year. My humans all went to Granny's house, and since I'm so small, I got to go!! I ran around and was greeted by Grampa, who always gives me treats. Their dachsund doesn't really like me too much, she is old and stayed on the chair. I walked around a bit, looking for morsels of food as the house smelled like heaven. The humans sat in the living area, chatting. Mom's sister came, and brought her pug. It was a gathering of humans and dogs! The pug stayed close to her human, but we smelled each other out of polite greeting etiquette. Granny got dinner all set out, the humans ate and talked, the dogs were stationed under the table in case food dropped. Then, the humans went to the living room and talked more. The pug ran between the couch and coffee table, grabbed the lamp cord in the curl of her tail, pulled the lamp to the floor, broke the ceramic piece in 2. Granny got mad and talked of buying metal lamps. Grampa said he could glue it. Somehow religion was brought up and a heated debate was born between Grampa and a grandson. The night never truly recovered after that. Granny served pumpkin pie and a piece was dropped, the dogs were all over it. Mom pulled me away saying something about diarrhea, I wasn't listening because of the adrenaline/sugar rush combination brewing in my 5 pound body. The humans watched some tv, had some laughs, and then started packing up leftovers. It was dark outside and had been a long day. Mom said her stomach hurt from eating too much. In my opinion, too much food is nothing to complain about. At home, the humans watched Home For The Holidays and I slept on mom's chest. I was worn out. Mom got sad from the movie because she missed her brother and went to bed. I licked her face and we drifted off to sleep. Not a perfect Thanksgiving, but at the end of the day, we all know we love each other. Happy Thanksgiving.
