What We're Thankful For

Rita and I decided we'd share what we're thankful for this holiday season.

Okay, well, I decided anyway...

I'm thankful for the hubs, and my beautiful pup, and my family, and the lovely place that we live, and for all the folks who read this silliness here on my blog and who take the time to read my books.

Rita is thankful for treats.

She is not thankful for being a supermodel. Until the treats come out.

And she should know that that doesn't smell like turkey, because she was right there, underfoot, when I brought our Thanksgiving turkey home. (Don't forget - it's okay to give your pup a little bit of the turkey, but not the skin!)


A Wee Gift for Newsletter Subscribers
I'm planning to send out my (very infrequent) author newsletter on Monday, and it will include a wee gift for my subscribers - a short story, perfect to read while enjoying some hot cocoa and a Christmas cookie or five.

The short story, "The Year I Got All Grinchy," is my usual Fido-friendly fiction, so be sure to sign up for my newsletter if you'd like a copy. It's a story I wrote a few years ago for a Christmas anthology, but figured it was time to share it with more than the 7 people who bought the anthology. :) (It will be available in ebook form or as a PDF, and you can sign up on the home page of this blog or my website, www.jackiebouchard.com.)

Happy Thanksgiving to all who'll be celebrating!

    1. Lol. (Hmmm. Just occurred to me that maybe I should have called it “The Christmas I Got All Grinchy”.... oh well!)

  4. Blueberry usually looks like posing is beneath her but she’ll do it anyway. But Rita looks disgusted with the whole process-she cracks me up.

    Happy Pie Day!! ;)

    1. Ya know.... I guess that’s why I just realized I’ve never seen your dogs! They obviously value their privacy. :)

  7. When it comes to posing, I think Rita and Honey twin sisters from other misters. Love how you make the most of your captions.

    As I try to raise my blog from the dead, I'm determined to catch more candid pictures of Honey. I'm afraid, based on the posed pictures, everyone will think she's miserable.

    Love seeing your pics of Rita at the beach since it's obvious to all of us that posing for photographs is one of the few meh moments in her day.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. She does LOVE the beach! She tries to pretend like she has a very ruff life. :)

      I’m sure you’ll have no problem reviving your blog! Happy Thanksgiving to you and Mike and Honey as well!

  12. Happy Thanksgiving Miss Jackie & Rita! Oh, that is a nice looking little bird that Rita has, but I bet Rita will find the real bird you're cooking much more nose worthy! Tee hee hee!

  14. Rita, even as un unwilling model you tell an excellent and funny story! I'm not sure I've signed up for your Newsletter... though I may have since you mentioned it is infrequent... I'll sign up again though, since I don't want to miss out on one of your books. ;-)
