‘Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving

‘Twas the night before Thanksgiving and the roads were all covered in snows

Not an Eko was stirring, even though he had a hamburger on his nose

The Eko was nestled all snug in his bed

While visions of treats danced in his head

When out in the street there arose such a clatter

Eko sprang from the bed to see what was the matter

When, what to Eko’s wondering eyes should appear

A legendary creature – but not a flying reindeer

The friendly rider, with his dino in tow

Was none other than David Frei, host of the National Dog Show

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work

Describing each dog, its talent and quirk

He sprang from his chair once my dog had his go

And proclaimed this Ridgeback the best dog in the show

Then we all heard him exclaim as he drove out of view

“To see the real winner, tune in to NBC on Thanksgiving day, between twelve and two!”

Happy Thanksgiving to humans and canines alike!  I am very thankful that Eko and I get to travel the country together.  I know we are all thankful for our faithful companions, so in the words of David Frei, “Hug each other every day.”

Be sure to check out the National Dog Show on NBC this afternoon.  You might even see a couple familiar faces during one commercial break…
