RevGals' Friday Five: Giving Thanks

From RevGalBlogPals: It's that time of year. In the U.S., college students will be on their way home, traffic on the highways will be at its highest point, cooking and baking will ensue. But before the gorging and napping begins, let's take a moment to give thanks. Please tell us five things or people for which you are thankful this year.

The Typist and I are both going to play! Here goes:

DogBlogger: I'm thankful for The Typist and The Alpha. They took me in when I was a wee pup with missing fur, and they helped me grow my fur back and everything. Also, they're still very nice to have around. I have a feeling I wouldn't be allowed in this house if it weren't for them.
The Typist: I'm thankful for my PoppyGirl! She's truly been a blessing, and as my own very first dog, she taught me how amazing, smart, loving, and all-around wonderful pups can be.

DB: Aw, shucks...
TT: Don't mention it, SweetieGirl. Poppy kisses?
DB: Poppy kisses!!!

DB: I'm also thankful for The Boy. I wasn't too sure about him when he arrived on the scene, but he's proven to be entertaining, willing to share, and I still get the same amount of food as before he was around, which is comforting.
TT: I'm very thankful for The Alpha. He's also entertaining and willing to share. I'm especially thankful he shares my whole life with me.

DB: Hmm, number 3... I'm thankful for a sunny yard. I love lying out in the sun with my coat shining and getting all warm and toasty.
TT: I'm thankful for friends and family (two- and four-footed), especially friends who have become our in-town family and church family, like Mid-Life Rookie and her family.

DB: I'm thankful for walks and rides! Even when the rides get too long sometimes, because it usually means good stuff at the other end.
TT: I'm thankful that life, though it has its frustrations, is really pretty darn easy and good for us.

DB: And last on this short list, I'm thankful for everyone who comes through the front door to see me! I'm always so glad to have guests!
TT: I'm thankful for music and the great people and things it has brought into my life.

I think we would be really good friends except for one thing: I like snow in the yard! My coat is very thick and long, and if I lie in the sun I get TOO DARN HOT!!!
But everything else sounds a lot like me, and I know we would like each other if we lived close enough for play dates!

Oh, I love snow, too, Molly. It only snows down here about once every winter, though, so I tend to forget about it in between times! But when it actually does snow, I love to go outside and bounce around in it and make poppy snow angels. And as soon as I could get past the fact that you're twice as big as me, we would play in the snow together and be great friends!

I 'm thankful for being able to lie in the sun, too! And I'm thankful that when I'm outside and nobody is looking (I think!) I can let go and just ROLL ROLL ROLL! Ahhhh! It does my old bones good.

What's "snow"?

Your friend,

OK, for a dog you are pretty cool. But then, I'm a cat and I know everything.
