Greetings fellow Cairns!  Are you ready for some serious, all-paws-on-deck holiday begging?  I have been practicing my pathetic pleading look for a week now.  Think I have it perfected - I just needed to put my ears halfway back and now it's irresistible. 

 

Turkey is on our menu.  What about yours?

 

Happy eating,

Buffy

Ruffy could win an Academy Award for his "pathetic pleading look"… Best Dramatic Performance by an actor! :D

Daddy said he is too lazy to mess with a turkey this year so ham is on the menu. He brought home some pies today. He will give me some ham. Now I have to figure out how to get some of those pies. That pathetic pleading look is just the thing. Or if he leaves them on the counter I can practice my jumping. And don't forget you can jump on a chair and then jump up to the table.

Have a good time everyone.

My mummy and daddy are going out for dinner, but mummy promised to sneak something home for me! I guess it is better than nothing! In these instances I don't deploy the pathetic look, I just greet them in an exuberant manner and immediately start sniffing all pockets!  I certainly use the pathetic look in most circumstances, but it is good to have a backup plan, fellow furry friends. Nonchalance sometimes works, too. Pretend you couldn't care less (it's hard!) and the uprights stupidly try to win your favor with a nice tidbit. :)

 

Buffy, make sure you leave some for Ziggy!

Kelly has been guarding the Kitchen for 2 days now. lol  We eat Thanksgiving at the in-laws and then go to my parents and eat it again. The kids always want our own small Thanksgiving so on Friday I will be making one at home. It's a busy week of cooking for me. We always bring Kelly and Prissy home something and then tomorrow they will eat only what we eat all day. I take their food out before I use any salt or sugar except for the turkey and pumpkin pie.

Poor Keira, she will not be having turkey this year, We were on  our way to relatives and DH' s  back is acting up so we turned around and came home. We will be having  scrambeled eggs , sausage and biscuits. Lots of blackberry cobbler  for dessert, Hope all have a nice thanksgiving and a safe trip home if they are traveling. ON TO CHRISTMAS.

Remember to help out where you can.  I helped Walker Woman with the rolls this morning.  I stayed right by her feet as she measured the milk and some milk spilled.  I helped with the clean up.  She is a little sloppy.  Good thing I was there when she added the cheese to the rolls so I could to pick up the pieces that fell.  I was so attentive that she picked me up and gave me extra scratches when the rolls were finally raising.  She claimed that she needed to clean the flour off my face and back, but I know it was because I was such a big help with the holiday cooking.

Huff...our Turkey thanksday was in October. We had salmon. I got a small piece. But really I would love a piece of Turkey and I can't seem to get it across to mum that there is nothing said that we can't also celebrate an American Turkey day! I look pathetic anyway all the time, for some reason because of my long snoot, so that doesn't work. Any hints fellow terriers? There is a poor starving Scottie North of you , battling the winter storm...did that work?

PS. Me staring out at the snow, minutes -30C with the wind chill. Is that pathetic enough!

This is deplorable!  As one of our close cousins you should be able to pull off the pathetic pleading look with no problem.  The next time they try giving you some lame snack do this:  Sniff it, turn your head away, limp (not walk - limp) away and lie down with a big sigh.  Refuse to look at them.  They will think you are ill and will do anything to perk you up.

 

Good luck,

Buffy
