A Plea From my Turkey

(as written by Dot)

Dear the *Family,

Please do not eat me for Thanksgiving. I have three reasons why you should not eat me.

Three is because if you eat me I can’t be your pet and I am very helpful and responsible.

So why don’t you go get a





rather than a small, scrawny, adorable, helpful and responsible turkey. I’ll even change the dirty diapers. I will also babysit the kids, but that will only happen if you



The Turkey

*She had our last name here, but I took it out for blogging.

The only other things IĀ  changed were the color, sizing, and separation – though the final “do not eat me” was original to her letter.
