Christmas is coming!!! Do you include all the memebrs of you household in the holiday? Includeing your pets? I always try to do Christmas for my pets as if they were children. They are after all my children, as far as I am concerned. So I fill a stocking for them and I make sure they don't see anything that's going in it before Christmas Day. Do you do Chrsitmas for your pets like they are children? Do you go all out or just get them a couple little things?

My dog is definately a member of the family, but we usually just gt him special christmas treats, or a new toy for Christmas.

This will be our puppy's first christmas and she will be getting lots of special presents. My kids and I will buy her some of her favorite treats and some new toys and we will be putting out her stocking for Santa. She is just like our new baby, it just wouldn't seem right not to include her in the holidays.

My animals are just like kids to me. I usually get them each a couple toys and some fancy treats and sometimes a piece of clthing or a collar or something. My dog LOVES wearing sweaters. It makes her feel more like people.

I wish that I could find a sweater big enough for our puppy. She is a mixedbreed of lab/border colloe and some other types. Outfits are really hard to find that big.

Me with Rainbow and Bubbles at Christmas Time in ' - They loved Christmas time or any time that we come home and have a "surprise for them.
I used to do that for my cocker spaniels when they were alive. They loved it so much that they go nuts over the idea they had something that "mommy got for them or daddy got for them" We'd say "Awwwww! Look at what mommy got for you!" and they'd come a running and then dance and jump on us to see what it is and they'd bark and bark excitingly. Gosh, talking about them and all makes me miss them even more!! I've included a picture for you to see. They were really excited and it's funny to see it in the picture.

Awww, I'm sorry, I made you sad. The picture is adorable. My animals get really exicted for Christmas too, both of them get hyper and crazy as soon as they see the Christmas Tree.

Oh no it didn't make me sad, I'm remembering the happier times when they were with us and wanted to share it with you! I do miss them terribly but we all know that they're with us for a borrowed time and then they go back "Home" where they'll wait for us. I can't wait to see them some day and all the others that have gone over the Rainbow Bridge.

Yes, she has her own stocking, and 'Santa' brings her goodies that she doesn't get to have til Christmas Morning. I also take her picture each year by the Christmas Tree with her red and white Christmas collar on. She usually gets a wrapped gift from my sister (who lives in Texas) and from my daughter who also buys Christmas for her dogs.

We have a few family members that buys gifts for my dog and cat, we don't have any children so they get treated as our children by many of my family members.

We have cats and they all get treats in their stockings every year. They are members of our family and the kids like to included them in the festivities. They seem to know what is going on too and are in spunky moods that day too.
