It's official: Jewel is a certified gem!
Gch. Kiarry's Pandora's Box, a 3-year-old American foxhound also called Jewel, nabbed the Best in Show title at this year's National Dog Show, which aired Thanksgiving Day on NBC. It's the first time in the 12-year history of the show that the winner has come from the hound group. Last year's winner, Sky, was a wire fox terrier.
Jewel beat out a slew of other pretty pooches for the top prize, including a bearded collie, a Pekingese, a Norfolk terrier, a standard schnauzer, a bichon frise and an Irish water spaniel.

Aside from the invention of cranberry sauce, we're thankful for ...

By this time, you're probably catching a flight or hopping in your car, ready to get to celebrating tomorrow. But while you're doing that, this tortoise is way ahead of you – and he's dressed to impress.
In fact, we could all learn a thing or two from this little guy. Just because you were born a reptile and have no way of growing feathers doesn't mean turkeys get to have all the fun this Thanksgiving. For Thursday's festivities, this inventive fellow will be rocking a turkey-like shell cover, complete with beak and all.
