A Pibbles Thanksgiving

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a triple feast - three sets of parents. Otto and Axle certainly weren't left out! They had green beans, English peas, carrots, potatoes and corn. They even got some ham and turkey! No, they weren't given any bones - turkey bones can splinter like chicken bones and cause complications with your dog's digestion/intestines. Pibbles and other "deep chested" dogs are especially prone to a condition where their stomach "turns." When they eat too much or too fast or eat something they shouldn't, there is a possibility that their stomach will turn. This is a serious condition that requires immediate medical attention. It often requires surgery to untwist the stomach/intestines. So do your dog (and your wallet) a favor and don't give them bones!

My sweet Axle wasn't satisfied with the trimmings and the visitors. He wanted to look out the window at all of the neighbor's children playing in their backyard. You can't tell by the picture, but his tail was wagging so fast, I think he could've flown out the window! Love, Peace and Pibbles!
