You all know where I sit with The End of Daylight Savings Time, and soon comes
another close runner-up for favorite holiday, THANKSGIVING!!

Now we all have those friends who will eat just about anything. Okay so I may or may not be one of those friends, but I have learned the hard way what can happen (Halloween 🤮).

So this year, I put together a helpful list for my loved ones. And Oliver.

GOOD​ FOR ​DOGGY!

  • Sweet​ ​potatoes​ – healthy and good for dogs! But only plain, never with nutmeg or
    marshmallows which can get you a fast pass to the vet.
  • Turkey​ – Safe for dogs and even cats, for those of you into that sort of thing.
    Skin and bones are off limits though.
  • Green​ ​Beans​ – we like em raw!
  • Carrots​ – raw is best for the four-legged!
  • Pumpkin​ – raw or cooked is perfect for pets! Just no seasoning or sugar, especially evil nutmeg.

BAD,​ ​BAD,​ ​BAD​ FOR ​DOGGY!

  • Nuts​ – can lead to shock and even death. Thanksgiving bummer.
  • Bones​ – cooked or uncooked, chicken and turkey bones are bad, bad, bad. Can splinter, puncture and cause obstructions. Doesn’t sound tasty.
  • Nutmeg​ – can cause seizures and even death. So take it from me and drop it!!
  • Xylitol​ – this doesn’t even sound good! Mom says it can be hiding in some baked goods though so keeps me far away from the sweet stuff.

Stick to the list and we can move on to the next great thing about Thanksgiving, FOOTBALL! I am a big, big fan! It tastes fantastic! My favorite part is popping it and biting into bite size pieces, though no one in my family seems to love this as much as I do. They must not be true football fans. Woof!

Have a great and safe Thanksgiving! For more Fall fun follow me on Instagram at @sheepish_addie
