Happy Thanksgiving! Turkey, Parades and the National Dog Show Presented by Purina

Today is the day that many of us in the U.S. celebrate Thanksgiving.  While humans stuff their faces with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and calorie-laden desserts, doggies all over the world are giving thanks!

Here is a short list of the MANY things I am thankful for!

  • My Mom and Dad
  • Cody
  • Delicious food
  • Bones
  • a comfy home
  • My blogging buddies
  • and soooo much more!

I am also thankful that today I get the TV all to myself and I can watch:

THE NATIONAL DOG SHOW PRESENTED BY PURINA

TODAY ON NBC FOLLOWING

THE MACY’S PARADE

FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T WATCH TODAY

(like my Mom and Dad)

THE SHOW WILL BE REPEATED

FRIDAY NIGHT  8-10 p.m. ET ON NBC!

The NBC Thanksgiving Day special, “The National Dog Show Presented by Purina®,” will crown one of America’s great purebreds as its 2012 champion on Thanksgiving Day, bringing canine competition and entertainment into America’s living rooms for the 11th year.

This show is impawtant to me since I am a pure-bred kinda guy and I am registered with the AKC. The show  is watched annually by a total of almost 20 million viewers. Over 170 breeds vie for “Best in Show” honors in the tradition-rich Kennel Club of Philadelphia competition.

Can you guess what group of doggies I will be BARKING FOR?

Why the HERDING GROUP of course!!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

now pass me some turkey!!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota
