If paparazzi had been stalking my Thanksgiving, they would have found me and a small handful of friends eating chicken and Brussels sprouts in the front yard on a glorious Los Angeles afternoon. If they’d showed up about an hour or so after that, they would have found me pouring unasked for shots of Fireball into everyone’s empty wine glasses and drunkenly trying to pet the neighborhood cats. Animals, it turns out, make the ideal Thanksgiving companions because you can still touch them without worrying that doing so will result in one of your deaths.
In that spirit, below is a collection of every celebrity who spent Thanksgiving with their dogs. Celebrities not pictured with dogs have not been included in this roundup. Thank you for understanding.
