It’s time to talk turkey (sorry, I couldn’t resist). Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It’s a time to gather the ones you love most, give thanks for the many blessings in your life, and stuff your face with delectable comfort foods. This year, how about paying tribute to the family members who often get overlooked during the “I’m thankful for…” phase of the holiday? I’m talking about the ones who share your joy, kiss away your tears, and believe you are capable of absolutely anything- your dogs! Here are 13 ways to show your furry family members just how grateful you are to have them by including them in your T-Day decor!
