Threadville Mysteries by Janet Bolin
Tally-Ho: Actually, they don't have to pass the turkey to us.
Sally-Forth: They can throw it on the floor!
Tally-Ho: Or just drop it.
Sally-Forth: I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving. The Threadville ladies cook a feast, and we're invited!
Tally-Ho: But they're soooo picky about what we can eat. No bones.
Sally-Forth: No onions, either. Who likes onions, anyway, so why do they put it in so many things?
Tally-Ho: I'd be happy with creamed cream. Who needs onions?
Sally-Forth: Stuffing is probably good without onions, but we never get to find out.
Tally-Ho: Willow's making pumpkin soup. And she's not putting onions in it. Think she'll put an extra dollop of sour cream on ours?
Sally-Forth: That's not sour cream. It's non-fat yogurt. We're not supposed to have fat, either.
Tally-Ho: And yet they call it Thanksgiving.
Tally-Ho: And we get to go out on those midnight walks when Willow wants to snoop around about something, like how some human died.
Sally-Forth: Choked on bones? Ate too many onions and too much fat?
Tally-Ho: Silly people. Let's get Willow to let us out in the back yard. We can chase each other in the wind, and then have a little rest.
Sally-Forth: Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Look Tally, here she comes.
