Thankful Thursday

#1 here. Today is the day when our American friends celebrate Thanksgiving. Here in France, it is just another day. In fact, there is no such holiday in this country, and it is a bit of a shame because, let's face it, the French are rather better at complaining than being thankful… Anyway, even though we won't be doing anything festive at Poupounette Central, we would like to send our warmest wishes to our friends in the United States, and tell you a bit about what we are thankful about.

We are thankful that in the five and a half years we have written this blog, we have made so many wonderful friends all over the world.

We are thankful to be all together and to have the gift of good health at this time.

Violette is grateful to have a home, to be cherished, brushed regularly and for her treat buckets!

Vidock is thankful for his wonderful new accommodations and teacher, all the great things he is learning, the love that surrounds him, and of course, the treat buckets!

Tommy is thankful that his ouchie is gone and he no longer has to wear either T-Shirts or cones, also for his walks in the fields and trips to the restaurant with his #1, his balls and stuffies, and all the yummy food and treats!

The Chans are thankful for their Tommy, their warm and comfy beds, their sunpuddles, their cat run (which #1 occasionally climbs into with them to share the fun!), the snuggles with #1, and all the yummy food, most especially chicken!

And I am thankful for all of them!

  9. You have so many wonderful things to be thankful for! We are thankful that the storm that occurred last night only put out our power for a few hours and no major damage - but lots and lots of wind and rain - thankful it was rain and not snow!!!


    PS thank you for your good and healing thoughts for Tillie.

  10. C'est vrai que râler et un sport national français, mais ça fait tellement du bien parfois !
    Moi je suis reconnaissante qu'un jour de l'année dernière, après la disparition de ma Iounnou, mes vetos m'ai poussée à aller à une expo féline. J'y ai rencontré Félis la maman d'Hisia.
    5,5 ans pour un blog c'est beau. J'ai l'impression que beaucoup abandonnent avant.
    Bonne soirée.
    PS : mauvais jour pour les dindes .....!

  11. That was a wonderful post of Thanksgiving! I am so thankful you share your lives with us in your blog! You each have a special place in my heart!

    Don't you think you could have a special Thanksgiving Day dinner and activities and join us! I have friends in Argentina,Great Britian and other countries who do and really enjoy it! Next year maybe invite a few friends and start your own tradition!

    Vidock is looking especially handsome in that last phote!

  15. We should not have to have a holiday to be thankful. That is something we should do every day, regardless! Right? Right!
