The best photos of dogs begging for Thanksgiving scraps

You say no to that face.

Dogs may not use calendars, but they know all about Thanksgiving. When else, in the course of a year, does that unique mélange of culinary scents—prime among them the mouth-wateringly savory smell of a properly basted turkey—fill the air? 

Yes, for many Americans, the holiday is incomplete without a few searching, soulful, puppy-dog looks from a furry face wedged between their thighs beneath the dining room table. Below are a few of the best (i.e., most shameless) canine begging displays that social media had to offer. If nothing else, we ought to applaud these mutts' patience and determination.

As a bonus entry, here’s a photo of my parents’ majestic golden retriever, Harper, gazing longingly at our carved-up bird. (Full disclosure: I definitely snuck her some pieces of meat when nobody was looking. Thanksgiving is about generosity, let’s not forget.)

We put YouTube's best Thanksgiving recipes to the test
If you’re cooking the big Thanksgiving meal this year (or any holiday meal, really), there’s a chance you have an old family recipe or method to fall on. But if you’re tired of the same overwhelmingly mediocre store-bought items, don’t have any recipes on hand, or want to try something new, then YouTube is the closest thing to having your own personal chef in the kitchen.
