Canadian Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving here in Canada today. What a glorious weekend we’ve had with summer weather! I loved my walk in the woods and hope I get another one today. Hint, hint! Oh yoohoooooooooooo! Arf, arf, roooooo! Can't be subtle with those humans. I have to make myself heard!

This weather is unreal for Canadians who are used to freezing their butts off most of the year. I like the cold weather myself but I know the humans prefer it warmer. Guess they don’t have as much fur as me to keep them warm.

My humans had their turkey dinner yesterday. As usual, we dogs didn’t get invited, but they were kind enough to give us a few leftovers. Slurp. YUM! Turkey hash, delicious!

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful and give thanks for all the good things in our lives.

Here are ten things I’m thankful for:

1. First of all, I’m thankful for being so incredibly handsome and a chick magnet.

2. I’m thankful for being so incredibly handsome and a chick magnet. Oh, yeh, did that one already. Sorry!

3. I’m thankful for being so clever, funny and humble, too. *Grins and teeth ping in the sunlight*

4. I’m thankful for my four humans. They have their flaws but overall they’re a pretty good bunch and treat me well.

5. I’m thankful to live in Canada with so much fresh air and nice woods for me to romp in. I don’t like all the stupid cars on my street so I’m grateful to escape into the woods.

6. I’m thankful for old socks to chew on. The boys are good at giving me an endless supply. YUM!

7. I’m thankful for mud puddles to jump in. Wish there were more of them around.

8. I’m thankful that Canada has nice long winters with lots of snow for me to play in.

9. I’m thankful to have food in my bowl and love in my heart. Who could ask for anything more?

10. Finally, I’m thankful to have so many wonderful Facebook friends around the world. You guys are the best!

What are you thankful for?

A Walk in the Woods with Loup on October 8, 2011

A walk in the woods is one of my most favourite things there is along with jumping in mud puddles, chewing socks and roadside garbage.

Here I am with my trusty walker, Eric as we’re just about to enter the woods behind us. I’ve got my rubber bone to accompany me.

Here we are on the trail. LOVE IT! Hmmm, I sure have a cute butt, don't I? Eat your heart out, Tanner.

I love all the interesting sights, sounds and especially smells on my walk. Here Tanner, Tyna and I check out a really good smell. *Sniffffffff* AHHHHH! Rabbit and mice holes are my favourite and I especially like pee-marked bushes left from other dogs.

It’s fall here in Canada and the leaves are changing colour really fast. Cathy loves all the colours. I guess they’re okay but I go for the smells with a big nose like mine. Sniff, sniff, ahhhhh!

Already the ground is covered as you can see. Won’t be long til the big W. YAY! Can't wait for that!

Here is Tyna enjoying her walk.

I didn’t want to put this picture in but Cathy insisted. But why? It’s MY walk I’m writing about, not hers. Next she’ll want me to put in a picture of Tanner. NO WAY!

UGH! She made me put in a picture of Tanner. She said they should be included since they were on the walk, too. That Tanner is my nemesis. He's so jealous of me. I can’t help being so incredibly handsome and clever. It's not my fault. Sigh.

The day was so sunny and warm, it was almost too hot for October. *Pant, pant, pant*

Here I am resting up until the next time I get to go for a walk in the woods.

I’m panting cause I’m so hot. And you thought I was smiling, didn’t you? Well, I am smiling, too, cause I’m “Happy go lucky, live in the moment Loup” and am always in a good mood, except when dogs like Tanner try to pick a fight with me. He's just annoyed cause I'm the Alpha Dog and he thinks he is, too. There can only be one, Tanner, and I'm it. Get over it already!

Until next time, I send some nice slobbery and loving licks to all my friends.

Love Loup
