Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody!

Just a quick Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! We had a wee change of plans.

Apparently ignorance reigned supreme about Talulah’s breed, and despite offering to crate her the entire day by our family’s house, they still wouldn’t have her. It kicked Tina and I in the pants. How could crating a dog be of any concern to anyone, I don’t know. We reached out to no avail. I’m struggling with great feelings of disrespect. I don’t work with Talulah as hard as I do to have people concern themselves over whether she’s a threat to their welfare.

Sweet Schadenfreude prevailed though. While Tina and I were at the gym, a dog show was on TV, and a pit bull (we should say “American Straffordshire Terrier”) won the terrier group and a boxer won its division. They talked about how awesome these dogs are to have for families, and we just happen to have a mix of both amazing breeds.

So Tina and I are making dinner for Michael, Jason and the two of us. I’ll snag some shots. I’m roasting a chicken with vegetables. I’m making some sweet-ass sweet potatoes, and Tina’s making a kickass salad with roasted beets and goat cheese.

Happy Turkey Day!

  1. Don’t be offended by their fears. Be more upset by the loads of irresponsible pit and pit mix owners out there who are not to be trusted with such a powerful and intelligent breed. They are the ones who ruined your plans.

    If I had a child, I can’t say that I would be totally comfortable with that child being around any large breed dog that we didn’t know. Perhaps you should introduce Talulah to your family and their children before the next holiday get together so that they will see how awesome she is and their fears will be calmed.

    I hope you guys had an awesome day! Hearts!

  2. We have introduced Talulah to them. We brought her down there about a month ago. Tina’s cousin has some untold issues with dogs because she was physically shaking at times when she was hanging out with Talulah.

    It was a case of a human completely misunderstanding a dog.

    I understand the fear which is why we would have crated her and only brought her out to eat, pee and again to leave. Talulah wouldn’t have been seen or heard.

    It’s fine though. We had an awesome time. I think it worked out for the best.

    I’ll write more about it soon. I have to respond to your other responses from Wednesday too. Have you been black Friday-ing?

    1. That sucks…she’s just totally scared of dogs all together? I can’t even imagine what that would be like.

      No black Friday-ing for me. Just work. I’m going to need to take some time off in a couple of weeks so we can move into our new place so I didn’t want to take today off. Plus, T is working anyway.

      I did buy a new bedspread online just a bit ago. I guess that counts kind-of.

      1. That sucks that you have to work the day after Thanksgiving. I’m sure it’s fine, but I’m sure you’d like to have had the day off as a holiday. 🙂

        I’ll talk to you personally about your move.

        Cheers,

        J

  3. I cannot understand anyone allowing themselves to be scared of dogs and letting it affect their and other peoples lives – especially when the dog is as cute as Talulahbabes !

    It’s funny here when I take Molly out for a walk and come across a Moroccan family – they freak out completely and run off like something from a roadrunner cartoon..
