Thanks! Giving!

Apparently, I have been selected as Dogmark's Site of the Day. A great honor... I am humbled beyond measure. This also means that I am in the running for Cool Dog Site of the Month. If you would like to vote for me (the polls for the November site open in December), head to Dogmark and cast that vote.

Since today is the cruelest holiday of the year, Thanksgiving, I thought I would celebrate with some poetry to showcase my way with words. Thanksgiving is the cruelest holiday because of the copious amounts of glorious foodstuffs that should trickle down to me yet never seem to materialize in the house of these Great Oppressors. I bet Cathy, my granddogma, would give me some food if she were here. The above picture is from a recent October snowstorm. J took me to the park. I thought it looked poetic enough to accompany my meditation on Thanksgiving.

Thanks! Giving!
by Sid the Dog

My kibble gives me life,
but the Oppressors know it's dry,
and for their need to feed me it
I trust they all will fry.

Thanksgiving time is here,
and with it lots of food,
and if the humans eat it all
I will just have to brood.

It's patently unfair, you know,
to keep me from the bird.
They bag MY poop and scratch MY head
yet have the final word.

They'd best give thanks for what I do
and send some scraps my way,
or I swear that I will hatch a plot
to have them sent away.

Happy Thanksgiving to all you dogs!

Onion- But you have a LIGHT! That is so cool. Those of you who haven't gone to Onion's site lately should just to check out her sexy curves immortalized in lamp form.
Marvin- Thanks for the poetry props. Not too shabby yourself. I find that rhyme is an underutilized device these days.
Buster- Plates? Sigh... I get to clean plates on backpacking trips and when I am at my Granddogma's house.
Wally- The grannies are key! I miss mine...

Congrats on the cool site of the day. You, me, and Bella through the Thanksgiving holidays. After the run of shopping sites early in the month, it's nice to have a few blogs.

Thanks for the comment. I can imagine one of those HUGE monumental statues of you, looking over a nice park we could all play in. Don't worry, one day we will rule the world and dog statues will be in every square for us all to pee on!
