What did you get your B for Christmas?

I am mustering up the energy to get up and head over to PetSmart to get the furkids some presents for Christmas. What did you guys get your B's for Christmas?

I just came from Petco where I picked up a laser pointer…. i just tried it with them and they couldn't care less.... I'll keep trying...

No matter what I get our little guy all he cares about is the wrapping paper :p

Definitly got my B some treats, I like the fancy cookies that are homemade from a local baker (all natural treats). I wrapped a few flavored raw-hide treats and I see her sniffing under the tree quite a bit wondering which ones are hers lol. I also got her a stuffed toy, but I think she will mostly play with the paper and forget about the actual present lol! Should be an intresting 1st Christmas.

Exactly!!!! unless it is food…. ggg then it is the wrapping paper and the food

I got mine one of those little electronic dogs that walks and woofs. I think they will love it. It's under my tree right now that's on top of a table…..they also got a cute treat jar and biscuits from my friend's two beagles. Zoey is getting a cute pink raincoat. My best friends are coming over today, so I'm sure they'll have a few gifts, too. This is a special holiday for us because it's Tyler and Zoey's first Christmas in their new home.

I haven't gotten mine their gifts yet. I will pick up something today while I am out. We also participated in the Rip Van Wrinkle Santa Paws gift exchange this year. It will be fun to see what they get. I hope our gift arrived in NY on time.

Wal-Mart has a really overstuffed stocking full of chewable goodness, so we picked up one and will probably parcel out the toys over the holiday season.

Really, I think all She-Ra wants is for me and the wife to open our presents so she can have at that shiny paper! 🙂

And I may find her a nice big bully stick for a treat.

What is the Rip Van Winkle Santa Paws gift exchange?

Every year the Rip Van Wrinkle Basenji Club has a Santa Paws gift exchange. Basenjis get their humans to sign them up for the exchange and then they are matched up with another basenji family and gifts are exchanged.

I bought some Merrick treats for mine and some Bamboo toys. They seem much more sturdy than some of the other chew toys I have bought that get de-stuffed within a few hours…we'll see:rolleyes:
The B-boys bought bones for my sister's dogs and my in-laws dog, plus they got a dog calendar for my in-laws. They are such thoughtful little shoppers:p

Is that a California club?

I have a $25 gift certificate to PetsMart but haven't gotten a chance to go yet. Senji's birthday is on the 30th, so I'll need to get him something for that too. My nieces bought him some sort of raw-hide pizza shaped thing. I don't think it agrees with him. Luckily he's only had 2 pieces of it. He likes to help open the presents, then shreads everything into tiny bits. I have a Santa outfit for him, so he'll be "Senji-Claus" for tomorrow.

You must post pictures of this! LOL!

I tried to take photos of Chase (my Puggle) in a Santa costume and Zahra in a reindeer costume, Zahra would not let me anywhere near her with the reindeer costume and Chase let me put his on but just stood there like a statue humiliated. Zahra eventually came to her brother's rescue by ripping the Santa hat and beard combo off him and jumping up on the chair to chew on it.

I had video taped Chase's torture and Zahra's defiance (I missed getting her ripping the hat and beard off on video tape though) so DH could see it when he came home which he in turn made into a video that we have shown to friends set to Christmas music it is entitled "Animal Abuse 101 by Jenn".

The Rip Van Wrinkle Basenji club is actually based in NY. I met the lady when we went lure coursing…

She sent me a "Wrinkler" newsletter in the mail - seems they have some basenji events periodically… sounds fun!

@ChaseandZahrasmom:

Actually it is a New York club. They have many members from all over the country. They have a great newsletter.

Sahara got chew treats and a nice stuffed squirrel that she really loves. I also got the laser light, she didn't care for it as well. She didn't think it was a big deal at all, Mom will return it. She also got a beautiful martingale collar that Majestic Collars handmade. It was made with Russian brocade material, lined in silk. She really looks regal in this, I will have to take her picture and share it here.

I posted our pics under Miles: A Rescue

But we did the Dogster Basenji gift exchange and it was a lot of fun… 😉

Various stuffed toys some of which have already suffered some damage to ears, eyes, arms and legs.:eek: Some chew treats and a great Holiday dinner enjoyed by all…...it was a Merry Christmas.

EL D got some new toys (one of which was ripped up before he even got the others unwrapped). He was busy opening his presents at the same time we opened ours so we didn't have toworry about him stealing presents.
