  • Who else here gives Christmas gifts to our pets?

    Be honest now? Who else here gets a huge charge out of including their dog(s) or cat(s) in the gift giving ritual?

    Every Christmas our pitbull Trudi gets about a dozen small gifts. Not because we spoil her, but ourselves.

    This dog hits a wrapped present like a monkey on a cup cake. Tearing through wrapping paper like a wood chipper then moving all her toys to a big pile, trying each out one at time.

    By the time she is through we all whipping tears from our eyes from laughing.

    Great fun.

    Why not? I've done it a couple of times with my cats over the years but I sadly don't have a pet nowadays.

      If I had a pet and the money; I would. My last dog, or actually my dad's dog, loved to wear sweaters.

        We do, because they aren't "pets". They are family.

          Trudi, about to doze off with her favorite gift from last Christmas. A sock monkey!

            We don't spoil our pets, but they do have stockings and Santa does. They still believe, at least!

              That's true! A pet isn't a pet for very long but often a family member for much longer.

                          Yes, we also give our dogs presents. They rip through the paper and it is hugely funny. Lucy, the bassador(part basset hound, part black labrador), really enjoys herself. Honey, the dog without eyes, not so much. She waits for Lucy to open the gifts for her and then pounces on the treats by smell. That dog can really move when it suits her.

                            Why wouldn't I give my dog a pet? Are you prejudiced against Canine-Americans? She's a member of the family. She has her own stocking and will get gifts this year, just like she did last year.

                              Yup we give out pets gifts too... The birds get things from new things to ease living to new toys and what not.
