CONNECTICUT, USA — A local woman has been going to dog shelters around Connecticut to give them a very special Thanksgiving. 

Tracy Miller calls it Barksgiving -- it's something she has been doing for the past two years. 

Each dog at the shelter gets a homemade Thanksgiving meal made up of turkey with bone broth, mashed sweet potatoes, peas and carrots, organic pumpkin, complete with a slick of cake made specifically for dogs from South Windsor's Leaps and Bones

Miller tells FOX61 each dog received a new blanket, toy, bag of dog treats, and a gift certificate to get their nails trimmed at Plainville's Dirty Tails. On Wednesday, Miller visited the New Britain Animal Control.
