It happens every year like clockwork. The day before Thanksgiving I find myself overcome with emotion. I get sentimental and weepy about just how lucky a bully I really am. And for reasons I still can’t explain, I start to love @roberttherubberchicken. It’s a little disconcerting really, but I just roll with it.

So today when I got an email from my buddies at Purina asking my thoughts on their #dogthanking initiative, I did some soul-digging and this is what I came up with.


D is for The Droolitzer, duh. #ilovewhatidoScreen Shot 2015-11-24 at 1.08.05 PM


O is for @operation_sumo. Everybully needs a buddy, I just happen to have found the best of the best! #BFF


G is for gingers. While they are nearly impossible to train, redheads aren’t all that bad. #iheartmom

A is for Animal Crackers, my local pet supply store where they know me by name (and reputation). #myfavoritestoreScreen Shot 2015-11-25 at 6.17.17 AM
