Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my dog blogging friends and to your people.

We got up early this morning to meet some friends for tracking, my favorite activity. It was very foggy when we started, but the conditions were perfect for the scent. Ambrose's friend Scout it a very enthusiastic tracker.



Ambrose likes to track too but gets very silly on the course and is easily distracted. He has no work ethic yet.

Look how serious I am about my track.



My reward for finding articles this morning was turkey sausage so you can see why my nose is so deep into the track.



After a great morning of sniffing we came home to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and the National Dog Show. The house smells great because Barbara is making pumpkin soup. I hope we get a taste before she goes off to Thanksgiving dinner at friends and abandons us.

Wishing you and yours the most blessed of days as we break bread with friends and family or spend our time as a volunteer with any one of the numerous charities in need of our time and talents.

Peace, plenty, prosperity - my wish for the United States of America.

We were abandoned too! Can you imagine? Well, at least you got to practice your tracking. You are most skillful.

Slobbers,
Mango

P.S. Momma says that she is happy to trade PeeWee for you but that your Barbara needs to be the doofus momma and put up with Ambrose AND the midget.

Did you see my kennelmate Solo when you watched the National Dog Show on Thanksgiving?
I know what you mean about clueless hoomans at the dog park...my hooman doesn't take me any more 'cuz of 2 bad incidents in a row. Now we go off-leash in the woods (it's permitted) and have only met nice dogs that way.
Your pal,
Sedona
