Buttercup aka Butterball aka Butterbutt! or Little, Lucky Lucy!

We had a fantastic Thanksgiving Day and of course, it all started early in the morning. Our friend Aaron volunteered to come out around 7:15 to help us prepare our rescued dogs their annual Thanksgiving (people) dinner. And here's a picture showing most of the food that we served our dogs that was sponsored by our good friends: sweet Eileen and sweet Karon.

By 8:45, our great friends/volunteers, Kay, Jim & Kris, Eileen and Dawn, arrived to help us serve the dogs their delicious, annual, turkey dinner along with cooked mixed vegetables, stuffing, eggs, cheese, garlic, olive oil  and warmed dinner rolls. And here's a picture of Louis Lane running to go eat her delicious Thanksgiving dinner. And her reaction was just like all of the rest of our super dogs. So it is needless to say, "They loved it!" But I did, anyway.

Earlier this week, Kinky's sweet sister Marcie had invited Tony and me to come over to Kinky's Lodge to eat her Thanksgiving dinner with our mutual great friends: Mario, Sage & Dylan, Copper and Max. So we went over to the Lodge and we had a great time visiting with everyone. And Marcie's Thanksgiving Dinner was more than delicious, along with Copper's mouth-watering, homemade pies. And because we ate our Thanksgiving dinner over there—Copper is now going to adopt cool Clovis, on Monday and Max is seriously thinking about adopting Gus, because he has recently retired. 

Then last night Tony and I watched the Cowboys win another great football game. And that's why we had a more than great Thanksgiving Day and night.

This morning, Kay, Jim, June and Sarah, our great friends/volunteers, came out and walked our dogs for us. Which was great, because the dogs definitely needed walking and some exercising, after they had stuffed themselves with yesterday's Thanksgiving dinner.

And the nice couple, in Borne, that were very interested in adopting Buttercup aka Butterball aka Butternut, did not come out at 11:00, as promised, because they arrived at 10:00, because they could not wait to meet Ms. Butter-whatever. And as soon as they saw her, from a distance, they got excited and they each told me, "She is exactly what we wanted!" So, after a short, but fun visit with Butter-insert name here and us they adopted her. And from the looks of this picture, that I took of them before they took her to her new forever home, I can't tell who was the happiest about this wonderful adoption.

When we ate lunch with our friends, this afternoon, I told everyone about this  3 year old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix that we've rescued, sight unseen, because she is at Hoegemeyer Animal Clinic and I asked them to please help me find her a great home. 

And Sarah took it literally, because as soon as got back home from eating lunch with our friends, Sarah called me, and said, "Nancy, I think my friend wants to adopt the Chi-weenie, but she has to make sure she will get along with her other dog...."

So, after being home for less than five minutes, we jumped into Trigger and immediately took off for Hoegemeyer's, so we could pick up this sweet, little, dog and take her to her "maybe" new forever home. 

Before we left the animal clinic, Susan gave me all of her paperwork and told us that her name was Lucille, but the woman called her Lucy. And here is a picture I took of sweet Lucy, in the lobby. It isn't a great picture of her, because she was nervous and not sure what was going on.

But by the time we delivered her to Sarah's good friend, Lucy was relaxed and kissing me non-stop. So now it is just a matter of time to wait and find out if this adoption will work. So, y'all please keep your fingers crossed that this will be little, lucky Lucy's new forever home. And that is about it for today.

Y'all have a great evening and keep on laughing!

Hi Fay! This past Thanksgiving was the 18th year that we've been cooking for dogs and it never gets old. Except for our trailer smelling like garlic for a few days.
