And the award for Fan Pet of the Day goes to…
TeddyHilton.com reader Brittany sent us pics of her pup and said:
"This is Nutmeg. She is my 9 year old weimaraner, and my fiancé and I love her to death. In her free time, she likes to run, protect us from the UPS guy, sleep on the couch, chase squirrels in her sleep, and bubble bark in an effort to talk to us. If she were a person, there's no doubt in my mind she'd be Meryl Streep or Dame Helen Mirren. She's the wittiest, most polite and gorgeous dog I know :)"
First off, we love her name! So cute!
And witty and polite? She must've had an excellent trainer! (We're talking about you! LOLZ!)

Thanksgiving is usually associated with (over)stuffing our faces, which usually means lots and lots of calories. FitPerez nutritionist Margaux J. Rathbun is here to remind us that a holiday feast can offer our bodies some nourishment too!
Depending on the ingredients your recipes include, a Thanksgiving meal can be packed with beneficial nutrients for your body!
Check out the video above to learn about the three most commonly used spices during the holiday season — cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg — and why they're a healthy addition to any recipe!

In most recipes, you can reduce the sugar by half and add vanilla, nutmeg, or cinnamon to make the sweetness seem stronger than it actually is!

Now we know why Santa is so jolly!
The newest legal way to get high is to smoke nutmeg. Nutmeg contains myristicin, a natural mind-altering compound.
"It's the flavor of the month," said Dr. Jeffrey Bernstein, medical director at the Florida Poison Information Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital . "But most people only try it once because they have such nasty side effects. The rewards are not worth the risks."
Here’s the problem — smoking nutmeg has some terrible side-effects.
About 30 minutes to an hour after taking large doses of nutmeg, people usually have severe gastrointestinal reactions, including nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Hours later, people can suffer from heart and nerve problems as well.
The only thing we’ll be using nutmeg for is to sprinkle it on top of our soy egg nog!
