Today is Thanksgiving in the United States. Thanksgiving is a holiday where you think about things that you are thankful for having. Even my human, who is a big humbug about holidays, thinks that the Spirit of Thanksgiving is a good thing. So, without further ado, I will tell you about the things I am thankful for.
I am thankful for my humans, especially my Sheila. My humans take care of me and play with me. They talk to me and give me dates and hug me. Without them, I probably would not have as many fun adventures and see so many exciting things like zoos and baseball games, and I might just be stuck on a shelf all the time. I am thankful for my Sheila and Mr. Bennet and MB & FB, who are my Sheila's parents. They take care of me, and they help each other, and I help them!
I am thankful for my herd, Harvey, Hector, Hiram, Horatio, and Joey. I am thankful for my Webkinz friends and the Andys and all the other toys at my Sheila's house. I am also thankful for Wally and the toys at MB's house. They are good friends, companions, and herdmates.
I am thankful for Dragon Cave and all the dragons that I take care of. It's fun to watch them hatch and grow up into full-grown dragons.
I am thankful for the internet, where I SOMETIMES get to use LiveJournal to talk to friends, and for all the things I can learn about online, and for the Dragons, and the Webkinz. I don't know how people lived without the internet. I mean, I know that you can get information from books at the library, but the internet is quicker and more convenient, so I can look something up as soon as I think of it, instead of having to wait until my Sheila takes me to the library.
I am thankful for infomercials, because they teach me about interesting new products and technology, and they help me think of things to ask Santa for. Last year, for Christmas, I actually got a Magic Bullet Mixer :D And my human and I made milkshakes. Without infomercials, I would not know as much about how to clean even the most stubborn, soaked in stains, and I would not know how to grow my own, natural hair back.
I am thankful for the Weather Channel and weather.com, so I know whether or not my Sheila should carry an umbrella! I am also thankful for the satellite TV on the boat, where I watch Weather Channel and Animal Planet and Disney Channel. Television is fun!
I am thankful for my Sheila's apartment and Mr. Bennet's house and our room on the boat. These are all places where we live and sleep and watch TV and eat and stay warm and comfortable and read books and play games. We are lucky to have nice places to live.
I am thankful for dates and cookies and pizza and other good things to eat. I am thankful for Diet Coke and coffee, because my Sheila would be VERY grumpy without her caffeine.
I am thankful for my little hat and my sweater, which keep me warm in the winter. My Sheila made my little hat for me years ago, and my sweater was a gift from Mr. Bennet, so they are not just warm clothes, but also nice things that show me that my humans care about me.
I don't know if I am forgetting anything, so I will just say that I am lucky to have a lot of good things to be thankful for :D
