Thanksgiving with Carl

Thanksgiving morning. I had to rise early to get the turkey in the oven so we can eat by early afternoon. The fire is on and Carl is snuggled up on the couch trying to find a couple more minutes of rest before everyone is up and around. I have to say he looks a little like a turkey this morning with his plump tummy and his beady eyes.

But Carl has nothing to worry about. Though I did hear from another owner of a French bull dog that there are places in Vietnam that find this breed of dog a delicacy.  She had saved her little pup from a breeder in that country and brought it back to America. My heart aches at the thought of this.

Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for all our many blessings, particularly our friends and family, which also includes the four legged kind. I am also very thankful for God and how he was willing to sacrifice his only Son so that we could enter into an eternal relationship with Him.

Carl and I would like to wish all of you a wonderful holiday season. God bless you all…

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
