Had I known that a mob of turkeys would be arriving at our estate just in time for Thanksgiving I would have counseled Master to skip that trip to the grocer.

Curiously, momma was reluctant to let me have a go at them and I had to observe from indoors as she stalked the gobblers with the flashy

They were remarkably complacent. Likely familiar with the firearm discharge regulations here in the Commonwealth of MA.

One could call the following an "action" movie, but they don't seem very agile to me.

As for yours truly, I am conserving my energy for the day ahead. I find that some time spent in an inverted posture helps one's innards fan out to make room for Thanksgiving day noms.

Have a safe and happy holiday!

Dexter done!


  1. Safe and happy to you and the humans too. Someone must've told the turkeys your Mom keeps the bird feeder full.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving Dexter (and to the rest of you family). I can see you've prepared well for the big day.
    Toodle pip!
    PS Those turkeys are so laid back I don't think they'd even be much fun to chase.

  3. Have the most Wonderful Thanksgiving and we hope you get to have your own little plate of noms too.

  4. Stumpy is missing all the turkeys in MA, right now. But, we're in NV with her boy and cousin Fenway so that's making her happy...that and the warm sunshine! Enjoy the holiday!

  5. Oh my dog! That's a lot of Turkey Gods! They must be driving you bonkers!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. :)


  6. That is a big bunch of turkeys, how cool to have them in your very own yard. I don't think I would have been able to keep my barky mouth closed!

    Happy Thanksgiving Smileys!!

  7. Clearly those turkeys knew you are a peaceful bird-dog, and also knew that your Master had already gone shopping for Thanksgiving noms, so they were certain they had found a sanctuary. I can't say that we would have been so welcoming. True, Mom already has a ham (well, then there's Abby, who is a total ham-bone...), but a little turkey would have been nice, too.... Heehee! Happy Thanksgiving, Pea - to you and your Momma and your Dad. May bits of the dinner be slipped into your dish (or your mouth, as you give guests the labradorable 'feed me' eyes)!

  8. Gosh, you could have caught one of those turkeys for Christmas dindin. It's not far off, ya know!
    We hope lots of crumbs fall your way today, Dexter! Happy Thanksgiving!

    Love ya lots♥

  9. Dumb birds. I hope your territory is well marked.

  10. Happy Thanksgiving

    Stop on by for a visit

  11. Your estate has become a veritable BIRD SANCTUARY! Sheesh! Wishing you a wonderful day, Dex. We like your innerds-spreading technique, and will be practicing it throughout the day!

  12. Loved your energy conservation pose and think I will go try it myself right now!

  13. We think those turkeys had spies out and KNEW you already had your bird!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  14. We've seen a couple of turkeys on our walks, but wow!! That's quite a collection. We could have helped you chase them! Happy Thanksgiving!

  15. Did you dream of chasing turkeys (with barks and your paws moving) while lying upside down? Enjoy Thanksgiving Dexter.


  16. So much better than being invaded by some lunatikh Lakies -

    Just sayin'
