– Today, we’re making 100 homeless dogs Thanksgiving dinner because we’re celebrating a tradition, Barksgiving. We’re at Frosted Faces Foundation in Ramona, California, to give some very deserving dogs a wonderful Barksgiving.
This is a tradition, something I do every year. A Barksgiving is just like Thanksgiving, it’s all about giving thanks and showing love. I also do this so that hopefully we can spotlight some of these dogs and get them adopted, which aligns perfect with our sponsor’s mission, to get 1,001 dogs adopted by the end of this year, more on that later.
Dogs give complete unconditional love, and since these loving dogs don’t have a home yet, we wanna show them just how grateful we are for them. Okay, I can’t wait to tell you what is on the menu for this year. First, make sure you subscribe, turn on notifications, and while you’re doing that, I wanna introduce you to this year’s adoptable members that will be joining us at our table.
This here is Marvis. Now he’s a rescue favorite, and understandably so, because he’s a nine-year-old, one-eyed wonder that loves dogs, people, animals, and most of all, food. I’m looking forward to giving him his first Barksgiving ever.
Now this guy right here, his name’s Duke. He’s a 14-year-old rescue dog that loves snuggling under a warm pile of blankets that just came out of the dryer.
Then we have Trout. Now Trout is very special, he’s a 16-year-old boy, he was actually turned into the rescue because his elderly owners, they weren’t well enough to care for him anymore. Now when they turned them in, they said that back in the day he was a search and rescue dog. You can see it in his eyes, Trout is a good dog and he could really use a new family.
Now this right here at Summit, they actually call him Smiley Summit because he’s got a big smile, and hopefully we’ll find him a home because he’s actually been at the shelter for quite a while.
Last but not least, I gotta introduce you to my boy Chopsticks. Now, when I saw him, I just knew right away that there was something special about him. He’s a five-year-old and he’s been through so much. You see, he was actually found in a hoarding situation, along with 60 other dogs inside of a small trailer. This unsafe situation combined with his medical condition, cerebellar hypoplasia, was an immediate recipe for him being in a serious situation.
Now, Frosted Faces cares for senior dogs, but their main goal is to help dogs, so when they saw Chopsticks, they knew they had to get involved right away. Now here’s the thing, cerebellar hypoplasia definitely can affect motor impulses, so he struggles to walk straight or stand for more than a few seconds.
But all of that being said, and him being a little wobbly, he’s still an awesome dog, and he deserves a loving family and he will give love in return. So I want him to get adopted, but today I want him to experience love. That’s why today is so important. You see, my Barksgiving is delicious, but also, it’s baked with a lot of love. And I hope that when we feed Chopsticks his Barksgiving, and all the other dogs, they know that they’re loved.
We baked 100 Barksgiving dinners. Now we’ve got them all boxed up. I gotta tell you what’s in these things. So, first, my famous pot pie. In here is delicious turkey. We baked all of these by hand and cut out that little bone pastry.
Now it wouldn’t be complete without some delicious, dog-friendly cornbread.
Now look at this, it’s delicious, it’s nice and tender. And then we even have some stuffing, cranberries, they’re great for dogs, especially senior dogs, it really helps with the digestive system.
And don’t forget this delicious dessert, my famous pumpkin, simple ingredients, great for dogs. We even added cinnamon so that it’s delicious and healthy.
And then of course we have some nice crunchers here for the dogs that like really crunchy treats. Look at these, we’ve got some coconut on the outside. They look like chocolate but it’s actually carob, which is safe for dogs.
So all of this right here, in addition to some mashed potatoes and gravy that I’m whipping up, is gonna make our Barksgiving meal. Now, this is the biggest Barksgiving we’ve ever done, 100 Barksgiving dinners. We’re actually gonna do it buffet style. So I’ve gotta go make some mashed potatoes and gravy because we don’t have much time. We have a lot of hungry dogs.
Okay, I already sent one, let’s hit order on that second one. I had to sneak away for a minute. Right now I am ordering online, the perfect gift for dog lovers from our sponsor, Furbo dog camera.

All right, now here are the rules for Barksgiving, there are no rules. All right, dude, you ready to eat some food? Three, two, one.
– [All Together] Happy Barksgiving.
– [Woman] Wow, look at that, he loves mashed potatoes and gravy.
All right, I’m making a very special place right now for a dog named Summit. I’ve met Summit before, he’s been here for years, and so I really wanna highlight Summit and see if we can get him adopted.
So no doubt, we’re gonna need some pumpkin pie, we’re gonna need some dairy-free, no fat, low sugar whipped cream. All right, cornbread. We put a lot of work, the team spent hours dipping all those bones right there, so we gotta give him some of that. We’re gonna get him everything because he deserves it, he’s been here for awhile. We’re gonna get a pie, for sure, and then last but not least, mashed potatoes and gravy. Alright, let’s go find Summit, get him his Barksgiving meal.
– [Woman] Takes it right away.
– Enjoy. You’re like a, you’re like a homemade dishwasher. I mean, who wouldn’t want to adopt you? This is going great, it’s so many Barksgivings. There are 35, right here, right now, and there are 35 in foster that are all gonna get Barksgivings. And then we’ve got another 30 that we’re gonna send out to some other rescue groups to make sure that 100 homeless dogs get their Barksgiving meal.
Okay, Duke, what do you want first? Do you want your dessert first? Okay, we’ll throw one of those on there. You want some cornbread? Two cornbreads? Okay, wow, you’re really going for it.
