  • Thank you, Dr Pia.
    We loved the photos...especially of our new friends from the Glue Squad. We are grateful for our Mom and Dad who love us so much. We are grateful for the treats we get daily. The food and water that just appears in our bowls. Our nice warm house and comfy beds, couches, floors, rugs...whatever and wherever we decide to sit or lay.
    And we are grateful for the new friends we have found on the Daily Wag.
    Pugs and kisses.

  • Good Morning Dr. Pia

    I am thankful for my humans, mom and dad are the best. They love their furry kids as if they were human. We never want for anything and even when I'm on a TP mission I end up getting kisses.

    I'm thankful for you and all my friends I've come to know at the DW. I'm thankful for knowing that when my time is up here on the ground that I have friends waiting for me at Rainbow Ridge.

    Mom says all the time how she is blessed and I feel the same way. I'm a very blessed Frenchie, God is good :)

    Ok enough of the mushy crap now I need a little TP to get the day started ;)

  • Hello Minnow, Luna, Dr. Pia, & my Glue Squad Buddies,
    I am thankful for everything. I am thankful I found my way home yesterday, so I could be with my buddies today. I am thankful for the snow falling outside, and that all those fears from the nasty snake bite are gone. I am thankful for friends, love, warmth, food, but most of all I am thankful for my forever family and their love. Gotta go...snow is a falling. Yahooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!
    Have a GEM of a day.
    Love and licks,
    Ruby

  • Good morning Dr. Pia,
    I'm thankful for my family that took me in and I am very thankful for my Daily Wag friends. We sure have a lot of funny stuff to say each day and we sure know how to support one another in the not so happy times.
    I think I need a handkerchief to chew on.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • :-) what lovely photos and quotes! Dr.Pia you always do such a heartwarming presentation....We are Thankful for you!
    I'll turn the iPad over to Kitty, she's all puffed seeing her photo and her friends! ;-)

    My mommie delia and daddie Al have saved me from starvation and certain death, I'm grateful they opened their hearts and home to me. I just wish my mommie cat had not run off from being scared, we after all are feral...she never came back :-(
    I hear my mommie and daddie always say how much they love me, how smart I am and they can't wait to come home each time they leave, just because of me...I know I'm spoiled, but I do come back to my home and thank them being in my life!
    We both are very Thankful for the DW-GS and newly found friends...We also love F&S and GK....Lynn and & Ruby girl are our special friends, we got to know them like others here.
    Dr.Pia I love the picture of Minnow and the bird, mommie ~d says I wish you could do that ;-) we love all the photos of our friends and their friends...

    Here comes mommie! We want to tell all of you, Thank You for being part of our daily lives :-)

    Have a loving day!

  • Hello Dr.Pia, Minnow and my dear Glue Squad friends,
    I loved the pictures today and reading my friend's comments. Abby and I love being members of the Glue Squad and everyone here! We love seeing the adventures of Sharkey, Francesca, G.K. and the donks at the farm.
    I am so very thankful for all my buddies here and the ones waiting for me on rainbow Bridge. I am thankful to be safe, warm, indoors, fed and loved by my forever family. I am thankful that Ruby came back to her house, that Maddox is so handsome, Kitty so lovely, Zoe so witty, Dudley so sweet and Missy Chow so thoughtful. Thank you all our Glue Squad and daily Wag friends, have a PURRRFECT day,

  • Hi Dr. Pia,
    These are great photos and quotes from our favorite glue squad buddies and authors.
    All of us here are thankful for the people who took us in without knowing what they were getting into. It took a great deal of love and blind faith on both ours and their parts to make us the pets we are today! And the reverse, these pets have made us the humans we are too! Hope this makes sense! To put it simply, we are all thankful for each other. And all of you too!
    Everyone, have a doggy good day!
    Dixie Boy

  • ..wow!..what a surprise..!! Thank you Dr. Pia for featuring me and all the other critters..love, Chewy

  • Thank you Dr. Pia-- it's always good to be reminded to give thanks. I am thankful that all my babies have wonderful homes, and that I can stay in touch with them through the marvelous Internet. I am thankful for my FirstMama and ALL the people who I knew when I was younger, and now I am very thankful for my nice, cozy, fun-filled 'retirement home, and the two leggies and four leggies I live with, even the cat. I am thankful for slow, fat, squirrels and not very smart baby bunny rabbits. I am thankful for the Glue Squad, and also for the original 'cyberdogpark' that Mom got connected up with a long time ago during the early days of online; if she hadn't met those friends, she might not have decided to be as involved with dogs as she is now, and that would be sad not only for those of us who live with her, but the ones she helps through French Bulldog Rescue Network and the Wisconsin Humane Society.
    So many things to be thankful for, what lucky dogs we are!!
    A bientot!
