Canadian pups enjoy Canadian Thanksgiving

Our furry fiends north of the border began the holiday season a little early with Canadian Thanksgiving, but they had a great time.

Among the country’s canine-related accomplishments, Canada has given the world the Labrador and Newfoundland breeds, the story of The Incredible Journey, and clubs across the country have supported the sport of flyball.

Canadian Thanksgiving is held on the first Monday of October each year, and is typically celebrated more or less all weekend.

Like American Thanksgiving, it is a time to come together with friends and family to spend time with one another, watch sports, and eat delicious food.

These dogs all had a great holiday.

These Yorkies were wearing their prettiest holiday dresses for the occasion.

This dog couldn’t wait to dig into all the delicious food.

After eating a ton of yummy food, this doggo thought an extra-special holiday nap was in order.

Many dogs and humans watched a doubleheader of Canadian Football League CFL, as the Calgary Stampeders topped the Montreal Alouettes 12-6, while the Edmonton Eskimos and Sakatchewan Roughriders faced off later in the day.

Lots of dogs celebrated the day by having outside adventures.

Watching the games made this Frenchie (named Dakota) ready to play in Toronto:

Meanwhile, this Eskimos pup was VERY excited about the game with the Roughriders:

It was a good day to play fetch in the noisy leaves on your walk.

And this good boy decided to go for a swim in the lake.

Back indoors, Bella might be a German Shepherd, but with hockey being Canada’s sport, decided that with the season just beginning, she ought to join in and protect her net.
