Happy Thanksgiving! And Giveaway!

Posted on November 28, 2013 at 9:30 PM

Hello there!    As another holiday season is upon us, we'd thought we'd give you a few pointers on how to prepare for the big days ahead.

1. Wake the Humans Up Early

Sometimes your people forget to set their alarm and oversleep.    You must prevent this tragedy from happening!  Stand very close to their faces (they love that) and stare long and hard.  They will be up in a jiffy.

2. Help With Chores 

Yes, yes, if your humans were wealthier they would have a maid, but what can you do?   

3. Rest  

It's important to take teensy naps during the day.  A refreshed dog is a useful dog, so a short power nap goes a long way. 

4. Cook 

Humans always appreciate some help in the kitchen.  No need to get fancy; just make your favorite dishes and everyone will be thrilled. 

5. Rest Again

Cooking and cleaning take A LOT of energy, so you deserve a little break now and then.  Think of yourself!  You're worth it! 

6. Snack Often 

It's very important to keep up your strength.  Often your people get so busy that they forget to dole out appropriate snacks at regular intervals!  You can remedy this oversight by making random sad faces.

7. Brush Your Teeth  

After enough time has passed, feel free to let the humans know it is your bedtime. Brushing your teeth is a good indicator that your day is done.

8.  Slip Into Bed 

At last, it will finally be time to rest your weary bones! 

And when you wake up, it will be another holiday for you to celebrate! 

                                                          ~~~~THE END~~~~~

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for!  The winner     of our last giveaway of a custom bandana supplied courtesy of Pet Gifter is:

Love your blog. Could you come to my house and give my 4 pups a lesson? They have the napping down pat, it is the other things they are bit short on.
