Thanksgiving is about pausing just long enough to express what you are thankful for – no matter how large or small.  We thought we would share what we are thankful for:

Qannik - With a wink and a smile, i can get away with almost anything.

Kiska - We get to go on these really cool hikes.

Kodiak - We get to go on cool vacations to the beach.

Tartok - I can get comfortable anywhere.

Ruby - When food falls, I am faster than the humans.

Rusty - You can be unique, even in a Herd.

Cheoah - That this really cool white stuff falls from the sky and covers the ground.

Natasha - That the rest of the Herd knows who is boss.

All of us our thankful for this big, furry family.

So what are you thankful for?  Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
