Do you celebrate
Happy Frank's Giving Day?
As with legends like The Great Pumpkin and Santa Claus,
on the Fourth Thursday in November,
and bearing gifts
But not for children,
But for pet dogs!
Happy Frank, you see, only rewards pet dogs
(not pet cats nor pet rabbits nor pet fish nor any other creature
that uprights fancy as a pet)
But it is only good dogs!
Dion said so!
(Dion is a Cavalier who allowed the uprights of That Old House to live with him)
And what Dion says, goes . . .
At least our Corgi Oliver thinks so!
Both Dion and Oliver has crossed the rainbow bridge
But not before Oliver shared the story of Happy Frank
With Young Miss Dolly
Who shared it with Doogie!
In fact all this week, they've spent most their time outside . . .
Watching for Happy Frank!
I think that Happy Frank is not one person but many people. The people that share the table at Thanksgiving. The dropped food and the nibbles handed down to an eager canine are the gifts from those Happy Franks!
But to keep the legend alive,
I decided to make a treat for the pups
Homemade Dog Biscuits
Full of peanut butter and oatmeal and all things good for dogs!
A bowlful each shall be their "gift" from Happy Frank!
Doogie is a little skeptical about Happy Frank
He thought he might mull it over a bit!
Besides, it's cold outside at the gate!
And he of little fur can't take the cold like Miss Dolly!
This Thanksgiving . . .
Remember everyone at the Family Table
. . . .
And under it!
