Although Thanksgiving is a memory already for our Canadian friends, here in USA, this is the day.
Lots of things to be thankful for: family, friends, the gifts of the earth.
It was 56°F when I went out at 6:30 this morning to sniff around, literally. The sky was just starting to lighten, needed to turn on the porch light to see the thermometer. The air was heavy and damp, patter of raindrops evident … and eau d’skunk!
I went to bed before 8 last night and was sleeping soundly when Bode started barking around midnight. I got up and opened the front door to look out and he started some serious sniffing. Skunk smell! He really wanted to investigate. NO WAY! He was nice and fluffy after his bath yesterday afternoon, something we do to prepare to visit the parents. They love Bode, but my dad is not fond of doggie odor.
So, in addition to the things everyone lists, I am thankful that this morning the dog smells sweet as we prepare to go to visit mother and father.
Here are some photos from our pre-bath walkies yesterday. Yes, we had some sunshine in November!
