Happy Thanksgiving

Above, I offer the official Thanksgiving Duck which I have "fetched" for dinner.

We are in trouble.   It seems that the humans have an old saying "Too many dogs spoil the broth".  Apparently that means the same as saying "Stay out of the kitchen."   So we are now supposed to stay out of the kitchen, in spite of all the wonderful smells and the greatly improved chances of something falling on the floor.   We still have not been invited to have any samples.   It looks like enough for everyone, even if everyone includes Bella, Nala, Stella and I.    Then tomorrow we get to go have Thanksgiving dinner with our cousins and many friends and neighbors.   We plan on a big dinner, followed by long naps. 

We won't be blogging for a few days.   It seems our chauffeur is going on a trip to Cheyenne Wyoming to be the official representative of Santa Claus at Warren Air Force Base.  Then he is coming back to Denver where he will be spending two weeks at Buckley Air Force Base representing Santa Claus for  the military families.  He may then go down to Fort Carson as well.  This is the first year that a Santa Claus representative will be on the military bases for Christmas so that the military families won't have to go to a mall for photos.   The bad part is that he is taking the official Mogley Blogging  lap top with him to process photos.    We understand and will not complain, too much.  He is doing it for the families in uniform. 
Have a happy Thanksgiving and get ready for a Merry Christmas.

  1. We hope woo snag SOMETHING!

    Safe travels to your Santa and his lap!


  2. Hey Mogley, we thinks yer duck should get a special place at the Thanksgiving table....just like you. Always good to see your happy face. Have fun with your gang tomorrow.

  3. It seems like you have an 'in' with Ole Santa--How cool is that??!!

    We had the same thing in our kitchen this morning too--I did share a little bit of turkey with our crew with the promise that they'd be nice while I was gone today! :-) We hope you have a wonderful holiday and we'll look forward to catching up with you again very soon!!

  4. That is so wonderful of your 'chauffeur' to help all the families this time of year! Please give him a "HO HO HO" for me!

  5. I can forgive the not posting for our soldiers. Tell your bipeds "thank you for doing that".

  6. Happy Thanksgiving!

    We wish the chauffeur a good trip. We are going to miss your blog, Mogley.

  7. Mogley, since you seem to be friends with Santa, can we send our lists direct to you and maybe you can.... you know.....put in a good word for some fellow Golden Retrievers.
    Tell Santa that is a great thing he is doing.

  8. Hi Y'all!

    Mogley, we'll miss you, but I'm sure y'all will have lots of stories to tell when Santa comes home.
    Hope the chauffeur has a safe trip and Y'all have a wonderful Holiday Season.

  9. Happy Thanksgiving. And we will miss your blogging, but what a terrific cause.

  10. What a nice duck, Mogley! Murphy seems to have missed the "soft mouth" memo as generally the only ducks he brings me are missing all their stuffing.


  11. Happy Thanksgiving and Ho, Ho, Ho!!! I'm sure Santa can use a helper like you! Slurps, Tucker

  12. OMD, do you have the coolest biped ever or what? It just gets better and better, what an awesome thing he does! Happy Turkey Day friends :)

  13. I hope you had a happy thanksgiving :)


  14. We hope a little made it your way and you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Any chance you could put in a few good words with Santa?


  15. This post is inspiring me to come back to your site.

  16. Hi Mogley
    Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.

    Since you seem to have a connection to Santa, Neeli would like to send through you her list!
