Here are all of the best things about the holidays, ranked:
- Eating 3x your body weight in mashed potatoes
- Cheery (but ideally not annoying) holiday music
- Family, maybe
- Dogs in sweaters
- Dogs in glasses
- Cats drinking wine
- Love Actually
Any sort of theme jump out at you? That's right: dogs and cats are now at the top of everyone's Best Parts of the Holidays List (what, you don't have that list too?). Specifically, a video of 13 dogs and 1 cat enjoying a holiday meal together. Cats and dogs. At a table. Wearing clothes. Using human hands to eat, drink, and be merry. I repeat, PETS EATING AN ADORABLE DINNER AT A TABLE LIKE THEY'RE PEOPLE. Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, joyous Festivus—whichever holiday you celebrate, I know this is exactly what was on your wish list. Because it's on everyone's wish list; seriously, who doesn't wish for snuggly puppies and kitties for Christmas?!
This glorious video was gifted unto us by Freshpet, a pet food company that provides fresh, all-natural dog and cat food. The furry stars were brought in from the Humane Society of Utah, and as a thank you for their hard work, Freshpet will be covering all the adoption fees for these rescues, and providing their new families with a generous supply of food. If only they could eat all of their meals like this:
Miss Manners would approve!
In addition to being charitable, the video also perfectly captures the spirit of a holiday dinner with the fam. You've got:
The Crotchety Patriarch
The Hungry Thief
The Drunk Uncle
The Bored Teenager
The Other Drunk Uncle
And so, so much more. Merry everything, everyone.
