Not many questions lately, but a few
things I need to clear up.
First, I want to thank Penny, the Jack Russell dog and modest
internet star (here) for reminding us that the Canadian Thanksgiving is the
first Monday in October.
My Humans, who lived in Canada for a
couple of years, before my time, think the timing of Canada’s Thanksgiving is
much better than ours. For one think, it is a Monday, so it means a long
weekend to do stuff. Many of people in the U.S. have to work the Friday after
our Thursday Thanksgiving…thus no opportunity for many to turn it into a family
The other thing they loved about the
timing of the Canadian Thanksgiving is the weather. It’s still nice autumn with
beautiful color, at least in the eastern part of the country. I’m sure there
are many remote locations that are welcoming winter.

Here in the U.S. a large part of the
country is already battling winter and the dreaded snow.
On the right is
a pic of our Thanksgiving at the shore two years ago. It looked more like the
Canadian Thanksgiving they experienced.
Now, my Humans said they liked to
celebrate both Holidays. They enjoyed celebrating Canada’s Thanksgiving ‘cause
they were in Canada. That did not make them pass on their native Holiday.
After all, it was the Human’s native Holiday.
Now, I’m thinkin’ maybe we could get two
Holidays here in the states? Or at least the Humans could celebrate both?

worried about this little guy, who was at the family gathering (Strangers
Sighted posted August 24th) having a home. Let me just assure everyone he
belongs to a human family member and has an older, fatter, pawed brother who was
not present this year.
Join me tomorrow for how to drive your
humans’ crazy! Just in case the need arises. You could even get revenge if
they don’t include you this weekend!
Hope y’all have a great celebration of
the “end of summer”.
Y’all come back now!
