Happy Thanksgiving (Day 44)

Happy Thanksgiving from PlumpieVille! Barcelona is thankful for milk jugs and milk and plumpie fans and that her lazy eye got stronger without a patch because otherwise Galen was going to talk "pirate" to her and she doesn't like all those aarrghhh's....

Heidi is thankful that she was blessed to be born a plumpie because what other puppies get to climb in bookcases?!  And she is thankful for her Cindy Crawford beauty mark...

Squeaker is thankful that we did not give up on him when he was born dead -- and Z is thankful Squeaker is alive so he can pounce on him...

Z is also thankful that his dad, Zed, passed along his good looks to him...

London is thankful for fences so she can fight, and leashes so she can play tug, and siblings so she can bite them...

Austin is thankful for so many visitors to bite -- and for his teeth, which make biting so much more entertaining...

Karma is thankful for her fan club...

Z and the rest of the plumpies have a fun day planned with something new and different for all plumpies --  check back later to see all the excitement of the day!

But in the meantime, have a gratitude-filled Thanksgiving and we hope that even if family are far away, that they are safely tucked in your heart like ours are today...

12:30 p.m.

Cuteness Alert!!!!! First meal video!!!

7:00 p.m.

In spite of two outdoor "walks" today, the plumpies were WILD tonight -- maybe those sweet potatoes gave them some sort of energy boost because it was like they were possessed! Plumpie playtime started rather mellow, with Squeaker and Pippi practicing with a utility article...

Z posed for some pictures for his fans...

Squeaker played a civil game of tug...

And then things went wild and whacky with plumpies chasing, stalking, and attacking each other...

This shot of Pippi sort of sums up the whole plumpie mood tonight!

But soon the evil spirits that had possessed my sweet plumpies left and they started tipping over with exhaustion -- and within minutes we had ourselves the Day 44 puppy pile!

I hope that you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving, free of all manner of evil spirits, family drama, or lumpy mashed potatoes....

For today, one of my favorite quotes:
"Gratitude is the memory of the heart"
For all you of you in Plumpieville, thanks for making my heart so full today!

Oh so cute!!!! Gives me goosebumps!!!! I thought they might get their first meal today - thank you soooo much for sharing!!! If Z and Barcelona are twins then maybe they should both come here :) :)

Thank you so much for this special gift today. Hey...Z did not get to eat his first meal as Squeaker and Austin stole it from him so it was best he got a 2nd chance. He looks so much like Zed that I can't believe it. He acts a lot like Zed too. I think Squeaker is pretty quick to figure things out and Austin is just a cool dude. Barcelona is just so lovely, Heidi so pretty, London so appealing and Pippi so darn cute that it is going to be tough to figure out who stays. As hard as I am trying to figure out how to cross the pass..they are threatening another storm today. Watching the roads closely and will call this evening.

So cute and they are just stunning puppies! Little porkers! I love to listen to them eat. Some breath taking shots of them!

Looks like something that will be on my table tonight! I'd say they liked it! Squeaker was so dainty with it, then Austin decided it was all his! Poor Z :( Their personalities are really starting to take form. Thanks for sharing-made my day, a nice break from slaving in the kitchen!

Ok, after declaring Barcelona to be my favorite, you go and post this video. They are _all_ too cute-now I'm not sure about a favorite, It's probably better that way ;-> Austin in today's blog photos is my favorite *today*.
What were they eating for their first non-mommy provided meal? It looked like sweet potatoes?

Do you think there is a benefit to feeding the puppies from a communal plate?

by Cali on Thu, 11/24/2011 - 14:53

The videos are adorable.

So what did the plumpies get for their first meal?

by Toby on Thu, 11/24/2011 - 20:41
