We live near a McDonalds. And our final walk last night, we found a smattering of about 6 fresh chicken mcnuggets. My pups don’t get human food very often, let alone fast food or food they find on the street, but... it’s Thanksgiving.

Their little heads practically exploded when they realized I was giving them the go ahead. Magically appearing chicken from the sky! That they were allowed to eat! OMG OMG OMG!

They practically bounced as they scarfed them down, wagging their tails so hard their whole hind quarters were shaking. And then they didn’t stop wagging their tails wildly for the whole walk home. And then they were still too excited to go to bed for a few minutes. It was so damned cute.

God, I love my dogs. They’re without a doubt the thing I’m most thankful for—they make my life better every single day. And now I’m all verklempt!
