Classic Cardigan on Giving Thanks: The Time I Made the Dogs Wear Thanksgiving Costumes in Gale-Force Wind

Speaking of gale-force wind, I don't know how Dug didn't get blown straight off the porch in this scene. Do you see how high off the ground they are? It's a good thing Carl likes dogs!

See below for a reminder of what happened right before Dug jumped on Carl.


Oh, and by the way, I still have a couple other Dug GIFs left to share this week! ☺

So, this is "Classic Cardigan on Giving Thanks" week! (Remember, from Monday?) And that means, it's time for another classic Thanksgiving-inspired post from the archives!

Once again, going way back to the beginning...originally published on November 23, 2011...

I'm thankful for 32 mph wind gusts...

...that usher in clear skies and cool temperatures. It's not supposed to be warm and muggy in Virginia on Thanksgiving.

Good times!

And I'm thankful for vacation days from school. Because there's no way I could've taken this shot without four extra hands. 

Turkey and Pumpkin

But the thing I'm most thankful for today -- especially as the out-of-school girl children and I were balancing ourselves in a wind storm at the end of a long pier, trying to get a couple decent shots of the adorably adorned dogs, who, incidentally, need to work on their sit-stays --  

You make it so totally worth it. Today and every day. :)

That's me with my head cut off and hair in my mouth. :)
It's possible that Jon Farleigh's pumpkin hat blew into the river. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends!

To everyone else, Happy Day!

Elizabeth, Jon Farleigh and Dewi


Another Thanksgiving-inspired blog classic (full of adorable photos) is coming up, tomorrow!


  1. BOL!! Thanks for the laughs! Have a wonderful day!

  2. I'm thankful that I don't mind looking foolish for mom's pleasure and to make our readers smile! You guys must feel the same way. Happy Thanksgiving!
