Pilgrim or Indian?

I have a theory about Thanksgiving.  Every Thanksgiving people make the conscious or sub-conscious decision to be either a Pilgrim or an Indian.  A Pilgrim is defined as wearing dark colors, like, say black.  An Indian is defined by wearing bright colors, say red or yellow.  Being that it is my theory, I make the conscious decision to be a Pilgrim.  It is just easier for me to wear black (no buckles on my hat, though.  I have to draw the line somewhere).  Despite telling Couper/Godiva's Mommy about this every year, she forgets and usually makes the sub-conscious decision to be an Indian.  Now that you know about this theory, you have no excuse but to make a conscious decision on Thanksgiving morning.  Sorry, it is the price of knowledge.

What does this have to do with our puppies?  Let's illustrate the theory:



As always, we implore you, please do not let your Little Buddies dress up like turkeys this week.  It may look cute, but it could be very hazardous to their health.

At this time of year, I always remember what my Uncle George always said: "May your Thanksgiving be full of Butterball turkeys and devoid of jive turkeys." Makes you think about what's important, doesn't it?

Happy Thanksgiving from the Poop.
