We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with tons of food. It was a nice cool day so everyone could enjoy being out on the new deck. And it was cool enough to enjoy some hot coffee after a delicious meal. We had two turkeys, one roasted, compliments of Cindy and Marion, and one fried, compliments of Robert. Also Breanne and Mark provided a nice ham. The side dishes included, broccoli casserole, squash casserole, sweet potato casserole, corn casserole, rutabaga, green beans, deviled eggs, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy and brussel sprouts. The desserts included pumpkin squares, pecan pie, apple pie, key lime pie and chocolate pie. The guests were Sherry, Keith, Kierstin & Haley; Grace (Mema), Tom, Breanne, Mark, Paul, Kevin, Cindy, Marion, Robert, Mary Beth, Austin, Windy, John and me. After dinner the girls gathered to plan their shopping route for Black Friday. Every one went home with a full belly and some left overs. Now for a good nap! The Papillon pack enjoyed the day and especially enjoyed their nap afterwards.

We are dog sitting two Papillon boys for the Andersons, for two weeks while they are on vacation in Hawaii. Dubi is the 1.5 yr. old sable and white and Tiger is the 5 yr. old tri color. Tiger reminds me of Icee in looks and temperament. He's kind of laid back and just a sweetheart. Dubi is a busy, clingy boy. Kind of like our Chili in temperament. He's not sure that he likes John yet since John makes a lot of noise mowing and using power tools. John is trying to offer him treats to become Dubi's friend. Today I took Tiger to the vet since I've noticed blood in his urine. It seems he has bladder stones. The vet says that they might be because of an untreated bladder infection. He's now on antibiotics and a special renal diet to see if that takes care of the problem. I pray that it does the trick.
