A gift for Fluffy

Hi all, have you thought about a Christmas gift for your four-legged friends? I have a dog and I've been thinking about a gift that would please his fluffy. What have you given or are you giving your pets? Let's discuss, maybe together we'll choose something interesting or can advise what you can buy.

I agree. Get your dog a gallon of Hondo's blood. He's A-postive influence.

Or a dog umbrella?

Cool suggestion, but not functional enough I'm afraid. You can't run with an umbrella yourself, let alone a dog. We need to think in that direction. Maybe a raincoat or something? What do you think?

I bet your dog is happy to run with you with or without a jacket. I have a cat so I'm not up on good dog gifts. Hopefully, you'll get some good suggestions. I'm sure the best gift you can give your dog is your time

I also have two cats they always sleep next to me and the dog sleeps in his cushioned chair. You're right there is nothing better for a pet than time spent with the owner, but I'll still be thinking about a gift. By the way, last year the cats got presents in the form of teddy mice.

I saw a video once of this dog that like popping ballons and he got a room full of balloons. He seemed happy, as long as it lasted. .

What is the breed of the dog and what area do you live? Only asking area because out in the country is different than in the city, plus weather.

I'm from Rockford Illinois USA. But we also like to travel. I have a dog breed chihuahua. Name's Sam. Please don't laugh, it's a small dog. But smart enough and cheerful enough. Might be sad, though.

Ahahaha what a funny cat. My dog had a duck at one time, but alas it is many years old and has been spoiled. He and the duck were inseparable and bathed and slept together, and if I took it away it was hysterical. My wife says let's get another dog so Sam doesn't get bored, but I think getting a dog for a dog is too much. He's a lot of fun, though.

Ahahaha I'm reminded of the famous line "We need more gold". and Warcraft 3. If you adopt the phrase, it's "We need more boxes."

It's so much fun to watch the cats. If suddenly a box appears in the house, it means there will be a cat in it. Sam got into such a box once, thinking ahead of time, but was too late and was kicked out of it by the cat. It was so much fun to watch. After that, there were a couple more attempts in the end the cat decided to trade the box for his soft spot. He had to prepare a box for him to live in.
