Tom and I did some shopping for the holidays, yesterday. We don't have a lot of people to 'buy' for anymore. Extended family gatherings have trickled down to nothing and being in CO means being away from the larger group of brothers and sisters, anyway. Do check out this great blogging event from Two Little Cavaliers, btw. I'll talk more about that later this week.
So, we wandered around Sears and found a few things ... for ourselves, in addition to holiday gifts. Isn't that always the way? LOL
After that, we hopped over to PetSmart to get dog food. They have the largest bags of the kind of dog food our dogs like. Of course, who can go into a pet store like PetSmart and not look at all the sales?
We also bought new treats for Chester. He's just so fussy! He only wants chicken flavored stuff. And, after a time, a certain chicken flavored treat that we know he 'loves' falls out of favor. I'm beginning to think I may need to just keep real chicken in the fridge for him. His treats are how we get his allergy meds down his throat.
The dogs behaved while we were gone yesterday - a new first. They generally find a book, a newspaper, a shoe... something we've overlooked, and tear it to shreds. Last week, when we were at my granddaughter's recital, they got into the DVDs. Luckily, they only ruined a couple...and those weren't very important ones. We always groan when we see the mess, then give a sigh and clean it up. The dogs stand around watching - and yes, I think they look guilty.
Back to shopping... so, what are you getting your dogs, or cats or ferrets or whatever pet you have, for the holidays? I say holidays because many people don't celebrate Christmas. We do. So, for Christmas... our dogs are getting... a hug. And a long walk. And probably a bunch of treats - they love bones. Our grocery store sells real bones that are heavy and thick and entertain them for hours. Not sure if we'll get them any toys. They just don't do well with toys.
By the way, we spent well over $100 at PetSmart. And didn't buy half of what we wanted to buy! These darn dogs (I mean, delightful dogs) are like having a house full of kids!
And, I wouldn't have it any other way.
