If you’re going to be stuck in the kitchen tomorrow, don’t forget to set your DVR to catch the National Dog Show! NBC will telecast the show on Thanksgiving from noon to 2:00 pm, starting right after the Macy’s parade.

I’ll also be live-blogging it here, as much as I can in between basting my turkey and whipping my potatoes. (So please be patient with me!)

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Canine Thanksgiving Dinner

Theron Turkey

I know, we all want to share a little of our Thanksgiving feasts with our dogs, especially because we may not have as many visitors in this virus-filled year. Just keep in mind there are some things on your table that may not be suitable for your dog.

The biggest problem may be herbs and seasonings. Garlic is a big no-no for your dog. Onions, too, can cause a problem. Grapes, raisins, avacadoes, and nuts are also on the no go list. And no chocolate or alcohol!

So, what can you feed your pup? Continue reading Canine Thanksgiving Dinner

Shelter Sunday: Chuck / One Hound At A Time / Colorado Springs, CO

Chuck CO

Meet Chuck! This handsome fella is house-trained, good with other dogs, and up to date on shots. Here’s what he has to say for himself:

Hi! I’m Chuck, a 4-year old male lab or hound or dane mix. I was found on the streets with a horrible fungal infection more commonly found in Shar Pei dogs. I’m not convinced I have Shar Pei blood in me, because, look at me! I’m about 58 lbs and could still use a bit more meat on my bones.

Pet Food Pantries

From the good folks at Alley Cat Allies, a searchable directory of food pantries that can help you feed your dog while stimulus / relief funds are stalled in Congress.

On the other hand, if you’re flush, you can follow the same link and scroll down to make a donation in support of Alley Cat’s work or use the directory to locate your local pantry and donate to them.

Although Alley Cat Allies is (obviously) focused on felines, most of these pantries assist with dog food as well as cat food.

As the virus surges, please, please, please #StayHomeStaySafe if you can.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
