Chix-a-lot Friday: how I spent my Thanksgiving weekend

You all probably know how much I loved my grandparents’ house in Merry-land, and how I’d go visit there all the time when mama and dad were traveling. I was sad to leave them and my best friend Tex, but you know what? I have another grandparents’ house here in my motherland, and we went there for Thanksgiving.

What did we do there in Galveston, you might be asking yourself?

Well, I did lots and lots of supervising the Turkeyman:

The turkeyman is my favorite because everybuddy else in the house is vegetarian, which is just plain silly.

I also got to do some mega-flirting with my great-grandma, who is one of my very favoritest old people. She’s so nice and always gives me little snacks from her plate. Sometimes she accidentally lets me take a sip of her Peanut Grigio wine, too!

Naturally, I did plenty of maxing and relaxing at the dinner table:

And on the sofas:

And out in the sunshine with my Turkeyman:

And last but not least, I spent some good quality time with my Disneydog. Disney is even older than my greatgrandma — she’s 17 — and I’m not sure how many more times we’ll get to hang out together on this side of the rainbow. She’s gotten a little skinnier and can’t see or hear very much anymore, and she is allowed to pee wherever she wants now. But she is still the boss of the house and she sure does keep me in line, and I respect her for that. I hope I’m just like Disneydog when I’m 17!

Hope everybody else had just as nice a Thanksgiving weekend!

  1. Chick, I lived in Galveston!! Your collar is perfect for living in Texas! And looks like you are living the good life….deservedly so I might add. Disneydog is a cutie – give her as much love as you can. Tell your mama that her pictures are awesome!

  2. Aw…I have a 17 year old who’s super skinny and mostly deaf, too. Mr. Dom, Foster Pibble/Pony extraordinaire is sometimes a little rambunctious for her (he’s only 11 months – and 70 lbs), but he put some sass back in her step.

    Happy Turkey eating, Sir Chix-A-Lot!

  3. awwww, what a good boy! I noticed that Chick is wearing his leash in some of these photos. Do you keep it on him when he’s in a new place/for tie-downs? I ask because Beau was kind of a terror when we were at my parents house for Thanksgiving. Couldn’t relax, begging at the table, etc. We’re looking for tips!

  4. OMG, Chick and Disney are SO adorable together! Ah, this just looked like such a wonderful time! Awesome.

    Also, I about died when I spotted the Disney-Doo painting on the kitchen shelf! Dear goodness, it’s so adorable up on that little stand. I don’t know why, but whenever I see my portraits in people’s home settings, it makes my heart a-flutter. I love it so, so much.

  5. I’m from Galveston too! What a perfect place to spend a thanksgiving with family. Glad y’all are back in your motherland 🙂

  6. Chick, you are an inspiration to all us Thanksgiving-crashing pups! All we want is a little slice of turkey and a spot on the couch to watch the game- is that so much to ask? I’m showing my Momma these pictures in my presentation on “Why Skye and Thanksgiving Should Never Be Parted.” Thanks pal!
