My son and I helped our neighbour out by taking his two dogs, along with our two, on a long walk this afternoon. It is a beautiful day for a walk in the bush, much more autumn than winter, which is unusual for the Yukon in the middle of November. The dogs loved sprinting through the woods, digging for squirrels together, and returning for treats when my son whistled for them.
Now they are all napping, tired from the activity. I’m thankful for the sunshine and warm temperatures and beautiful boreal forest. I’m thankful, too, for high-spirited pups and gentle old dogs.

What are you thankful for today?
I’ll be back later this evening to add any more thanksgiving posts I find (or that you point me to). As more people participate, it gets more likely that I’ll make mistakes in my posting, so if I miss your post or mess up a link, please tell me. And remember, if you miss a day or two, you’ll need to give me a heads up on your next thanksgiving post.
Do you want to participate, too? You’ll find instructions here for the ways both bloggers and nonbloggers can join in the thanksgiving.
