Well, I take that back. One thing was different. If you've followed our blog for a long time, you might recall that Blueberry has a certain penchant for pie. The girl just can't seem to help herself. Actually, the dogs usually do get very excited when they see us start to bake, because often we do bake treats for them. Last year, I recall the cookie baking we did was very closely supervised by three Greyhounds.
This year, while I whipped up the Caramel Apple Salad, I was closely watched again, by Morgan. Lilac, Blueberry and Bunny didn't smell anything particularly interesting at that point, so they'd gone back to the living room to rest until things got more interesting. Morgan, however, stayed on duty. She even stayed nearby as I began to make the Pumpkin Cheesecake. I found an added benefit to having a German Shepherd during this holiday, though.
