Renewal of their health insurance - that is for me as well as for them
Eek - I have been dragging my feet, but plan to get Bert signed up with something. He's a vacuum cleaner pup so it would be a good idea.... o_O

ETA - Whoever's been praying for snow better STOP right now. We are getting slammed! It can snow after everyone gets home tonight (let's say around 3AM) and stop sometime tomorrow evening to give the snow plow guys time to get out there and clean it up for the morning commute. And then after everyone gets home on Weds, it can start snowing all the way through New Years - especially keeping those New Years alcoholic revelers safely home. Capiche?

Jack & Sweetie are getting a new pig toy,hot dog squeekie toys,giant rawhide bones & doggie Christmas cookies.Grammie & Grandad(My parents ) are coming over as always so I'm sure they will bring much more.A friend wanted Sweetie to attend a beginners class a petsmart with her dog so she got that too as a gift from them.No matter how much I fuss they'll get way too many treats from Grandad so there will be an extra long walk on the beach (might be good for me too)

I did back down and buy something I shouldn't have... for the guys to chew on.

The toys - that was taken care of by other people. Same result. Dogs are happy.





Somebody nommed the gingerbread man...

Among other things Rose got a "cocaine treat". Since we had 14 people in the house out of which three were under the age of 3 her first present was the Purina Chewnola. She goes so crazy when she sees or smells the bag that it completely distracts her from what is going around. She went in the hallway with it and stayed there so nice while everyone opened the presents.

I had gotten Renny 2 Chuckit balls online a month ago. But, within a week he had actually broken BOTH of them! That's right, both of them split on their seam!

So, no more balls for Renny. But, his aunt (my sister) gave him a couple of cute gifts: a rubber birdie (that hard rubber) and a chew toy. And, I just ordered a winter coat for him, on sale on Amazon. I tried Lacey's winter coat on him, and it's too small around his chest. He has a hefty chest! 30 inches in diameter! He doesn't seem to mind the cold, although it's only been in the low 30s/upper 20s so far. He doesn't have a very thick coat of fur, being that he's a mix, so hoping the coat I bought him will be fine.

Like others, Cassie gets spoiled throughout the year, so nothing specific for Christmas.

However, I did recently get her a Bob-A-Lot that she LOVES, and she went to the groomers to get her hair and nails done on Friday. Oh, and I also had gotten her an antler, some treats, a nylabone, a kong, and some other assorted goodies.

For her, but really for me... I ordered a new pet gate from Sellout.Woot! today. And, I ordered a WebCam so that I can see what she's up to, and if she's behaving while I'm at work.

Someone mentioned the Kygen Hide-A-Squirrel... I have to say, Cassie LOVED hers. Although I had to actively watch her as she played with it. As soon as she got a squirrel out, I'd hold onto it so that she'd move onto the next squirrel. Eventually, she tore apart the tree bottom. Still have the squirrels. I think the trick in getting her to love finding the squirrels so much was I hid the squirrels in my laundry for a day so that they picked up my scent. Once they had that, she went nuts for 'em.
