Has your dog “Snippy” had his photo taken with Santa yet?
Has he sat on Santa’s lap and communicated his heartfelt wants?
According to the L.A. Times, an Associated Press-Petside.com poll shows 52% of pet owners plan to buy their animals a holiday gift — up from 43% last year.
Your cat “Snots” may insist she only wants world peace for Christmas, but I recommend you have a bag or two of her favorite 90 proof catnip snaps on hand just in case.
I’ll bet Snippy’s been a really good boy. (We’ll forget about the four sticks of margarine he ate off the kitchen counter yesterday afternoon. Guess his next big gift to you will come already wrapped… I can’t believe it’s not butter!)
Have you bought him a paw-shaped holiday stocking full of candy cane raw hides?
Or a cute, stuffed toy to sleep with and/or rip to pieces?
He may appreciate some fashionable apparel this season. Leopard tees and red turtlenecks are quite handsome – especially on the less dignified breeds.
Snippy will surely enjoy a spa treatment with honey shampoo, tingling chocolate mint conditioner, spray-on detangler and a much needed teeth whitening.
Ever floss a Rotweiller? (I didn’t think so…)
Hey Fluffy, why not some Botox to go along with those precious pink bows?
A gift certificate for an acupuncture session is a thoughtful gift for the pooch who barks incessantly. You will enjoy it, too.
If puppy seems stressed all the time, why not enlist a therapy dog for him?
It’s the gift that keeps giving.
After all, aren’t ALL dogs therapy dogs?
Memo from the cat:
It’s a wonderful time to donate to local animal welfare organizations and/or adopt a pet!!!
