12 Puppies Giving Thanks

Share

Ahhh, Thanksgiving. The time to gorge yourself with delicious foods like deep roasted turkey, pillowy sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows, classic green bean casserole, cornbread stuffing, velvety mashed potatoes and of course, good ole pumpkin pie. The only holiday where naps are encouraged and extra helpings are expected. The day when friends and family do away with drama (most of the time) and just enjoy each other’s company.

But these things aren’t even the best thing about Thanksgiving. You know what is?  FULL PUPPY BELLIES! Full puppy bellies aren’t a part of your Thanksgiving? You have some learning to do, my friend…

1. Don’t even think about sitting with the adults. You have kid’s table written all over your face…er, belly. Go on and hang out with your cousins that you talk to just once a year.

7. This is exactly how everyone’s grandfather will be found 15 to 20 minutes after the last dessert plate has been cleared. He’ll be wearing pants, though (we hope).
