Human/House/Harvey: Feasting


Its the week of feasting for America, so naturally I have food on the brain. While Ive never been a big fan of turkey, I couldnt literally easy Thanksgiving-style side dishes for the rest of time. The mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauceyou name it, and its on my dish. So this Thanksgiving, Im starting the feast early with a roundup of favorites for me, my home and my pup. Happy Thanksgiving yall! Stephanie HUMAN Its just a natural fact that after a big holiday meal, you will have leftovers for days. So Ive chosen to carry those around in some style with this waterproof waxed lunch sack. Ill have the best looking leftovers for sure! HOUSE You cant officially feast until the food is served, and this gorgeous wood and metal set is the perfect pair to start the dining right! HARVEY While we all dine on a delicious meal at our Thanksgiving table, I thought it might be nice to give my pup a little extra something to feast on as well. These boiled wool cabbage and carrot toys are just too cute and happen to be fair-trade products which provides employment to craftswomen in Nepal. As we gather round the table this year to dig into our Thanksgiving meal, its important to remember a few general feasting tips for the pooches at your celebration too. Keep an eye on the bones. While it may be your first instinct to give your dog a bone from the finished turkey meal, its the best rule of thumb to avoid doing just that. Raw bones have a tendency to splinter off when being chewed and can cause some serious damage to your dogs internal system. Overall, keep all parts of the turkey on the table. Watch out for certain herbs. As you season your Thanksgiving meal this year, keep an eye out for any herbs that may fall to the floor during preparation. Not all herbs are harmful to pets but some contain essential oils and resins that can be very harmful to your pup. The ASPCA has an extensive list to reference. Leave the baking to the oven. There will likely be a lot of baking going in your kitchen over the holidays (always my favorite part!), so you want to make sure you are keeping the kitchen safe for your dogs by leaving all of the doughs, batters and other ingredients to the recipe and not into your pups stomach. Doughs especially can cause major internal damage if eaten raw. A Pups-giving of their own. They may not be dinging at the table with you, but there is no need they cant celebrate this day of thanks with their own feast including some human treats too! Try serving your dog a small amount of sweet potato or green beans with just a smidge of gravy and turkey if you like. After all, we are all so thankful for these poochesarent we?
