Giving my dogs a Christmas gift really want

Daisy and her Woobie

If you celebrate Christmas then I am guessing many of  you will be buying a gift or two for your dogs in the coming weeks. I’ve been debating whether or not I will be doing the same.

Two years ago I chose not to buy my dogs any gifts because they already had SO many toys in their toy basket. Then last year, I broke down and purchased a new Woobie for Daisy (that Jasper destroyed fairly quickly), some stuff-less squeaky toys for Cupcake (that she still has and loves) and new Kong Squeaky balls for Jasper (one of which still survives) for Christmas.

This year I am leaning towards not buying them any more toys. Don’t get me wrong, my dogs would be happy to have a new toy to play with, but they also wouldn’t mind not getting toys either. The things that make my dogs most happy are not “things.” They love what cannot be bought. So this year I am thinking I will give them more of what they really want:

  1. Longer walks in the park.
  2. Longer walks in new parks.
  3. More time learning new tricks and commands.
  4. More time playing outside in the snow.
  5. More time cuddling and playing inside (when it’s cold).

What are you getting your dogs (and cats) this year?

 

There may not be any of this going on this year, but maybe that’s okay.
