Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!!
In case you are wondering, this is not the same photo you saw a couple of days ago... this was taken today! Evidently, I always lick my nose when the Mom suddenly opens the back door! I had no idea I had such a propensity, but I digress...

Today was wonderful and lazy, and yet a day in which I witnessed a lot of chores done!

We got up early and dined on the tasty breakfast foods, and then we all went back to bed [Reuf to the kennel. Me to my nap spot. And the Mom returned to the big bed with her new treasure,
the nite nite mask! (Hers is black!) The Mom bought it because our bedroom receives a lot of light from neighbors' porch, flood and security lighting, and she is SUCH a light sleeper... it just takes a bit of light to wake her for the rest of the night!] 
Of course, we didn't sleep very much longer... but it was nice to try!
It was also nice to have the Mom home to cater to our every whim. And we had lots of whims today! Just saying. Lotsa outs and ins and outs and ins...
We just love the judge shows, all of them... but the Mom especially loves Judge Milian. She's on in the mornings, so we all stopped what we were doing and watched The People's Court. It was happy and fun, with the exception of when Reuf scratched the daylights out of the Mom's face... and she threatened to take him to court!
[Reuf looks innocent, but he is who 'they' referred to when 'they' said... "Looks can be deceiving!" Just saying.]

The Mom left us to run to Luby's to pick up our Select Feast To Go! It was to be ready by 10am today, 'Fully Cooked. Heat and Serve.' And we were excited to get our holiday started with a festive and tasty lunch today!    
So... Imagine our surprise when we get home with what appears to be a raw turkey breast, which prompted us to read the heating instructions...

300 degrees. 2.5 hours.

Is that considered 'fully cooked'???

The Mom and I had both salivated over an early Thanksgiving feast, but that bird had to go back into the oven. No amount of arguing or protest would have changed that primary fact.

The smell coming from the oven was delicious. Just ask Reufus.
I'm checking on the empty pie/cake delivery vehicles. [We have one pumpkin pie and one chocolate ice box pie in the fridge.] And in the fruit/veggie basket... we have sweet potatos, just waiting on a 9 hour cooking spree! Don't believe me? Well... The Mom even bought a mandolin slicer yesterday! How cool is that?!

Outta the Bar Area and Down the Hall

Outta the Hall and into My Bedroom!
Watching the Mom check her list of chores and other things to get done on her vacay... Spoiling me is THE TIP TOP of the list!!! And things that will annoy me... like Dyson action... are further down the list than Wednesday. Thank Dog.
A wonderful day is followed by a wonderful night...
And it is an ANTLER NIGHT!!!
chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp
My little split antler is what I crave.
And it is growing littler and littler...
In fact, it is now gone.
bye bye.
My Friends, I wish you A Very Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Thanksgiving is in the top two of my most favoritest of holidays!!!

I am SO blessed and so very grateful!!!
 Your friendship and support is at the tippy top of my list!

Sounds like you guys were busier than a desert cobra at a mongoose convention.
So The Mom bought a Mandolin slicer,
she will love it. We see homemade sweet potato treats in your future.

We read somewhere, we think it was KB, who said that the nose licking was a calming signal used among a pack. Perhaps the nose lick is done just before entering the house as a signal to the pack leader - The Mom - that you are thankful for the door opening and re-enty to the "cave."

Woof! Woof! Oh such a Golden Thing ... the nose licking. Wishing you guys a Happy Thanksgiving. Lots to be Grateful for. Lots of Golden LOVE n Woofs, Sugar

Happy Thanksgiving, sweet boy! Give your the mom a kiss from your friends at the 'tip of the mitten' and give the Reufus a little kissie, too. Our holiday wish that is that all of your wishes come true.
