Please PM me your name, address and dog/s names by OCT 26!!!!!

I am suggesting a $15 limit for the family (not per dog, but if you want your free to go over, please don't go under or count shipping into the $15) remember its all for fun and the dogs Smile

i will than PM you who you will be gifting to, remember its a secret so no giving out clues Wink
You don't have to celebrate Christmas to partake in the fun either its open to everyone, i can note in the PM to the person that gets you to stay away from x-mas themed stuff.
All the gifts should be sent in the mail by Dec 10, that gives it 2 weeks to show up, if you will be out of town or are in another country please just note that in your post so the person who does receive you will adjust the shipping date so you receive it in time.

It would be great if everyone could take pictures or video of your dog/s opening their gifts to share with everyone! we can post them in this thread.

ok on to the fun, please post what your dog/s like/dislikes are so that whom ever receives you will have an idea of what gifts to pick up (i know some of you sent it in your email but can you please re-post it here Smile )

This will be a TON of fun and I hope you all have a great time shopping and wrapping and letting the dog/s do the opening!!!

Sierra and Jack love just about everything.

Likes-rawhides, squeaky toys (never last long but still fun), natural treats, always up for something new

Dislikes- Kongs, anything rubber, nothing with things hanging from it like fabric that is easy to pull off (sierra will eat it)

Ok...
Nanuk loves anything WUBBA!!!! Anything with a squeaky, although like Jenn's huskies, they don't last long. They all like anything they can chase (tennis balls, kong toys). Isis especially loves to chase anything thrown. Mika plays very little with objects (unless they are alive Shocked ) but has been known to LOVE treats. (Something low-fat, as she is a tubby)
No rawhides, please....I had an incident years ago with one of my dogs almost dying due to choking on one. Don't allow mine to have them, UNLESS they are the crunchy ones...... Other than that, anything they get, they will love, as they are not picky!
I love Christmas! And this makes it just a little more fun! Smile

Koda and Hailey like just about anything. Soft fuzzy things won't last long. We could always use more kongs in the house. Anything Wubba. Please no rawhides as we buy very specific ones, but anything by Zuke's for treats is good Smile They'll really enjoy anything sent!

Koda loves anything that squeaks, things he can jump up and catch in the air, things that bounce really high.. he generally loves any toy and is really easy to please. He doesn't destroy toys so you don't have to factor in durability with him.
Koda has a lot of allergies therefor it is really hard to locate treats he can eat. He is severely allergic to grains and has a pretty bad reaction to potatoes (regular and sweet). Regarding treats, we really only give him dehydrated meats and fruits or grain free freeze dried treats with minimal ingredients. He is not allowed to have rawhides as I don't want any risk with splintering or choking. He is allowed bully sticks, moozles, tracheas and things of that sort though.
As for sizings for anything like that, he is 55lbs and your average sized husky- he is about 23" tall. He is usually a medium on the loosest setting and large on the tightest/mid-tightest setting. Most of the collars he's gotten are large size.

So exciting!!

Logan loves soft toys with squeakers. Especially toys with multiple squeakers. He has a monkey with a squeaker in each hand and foot that he loves. He also likes ropes. He doesn't like hard or rubber toys.

He goes absolutely nuts for tennis balls, to the point that he sits there for hours staring at the box the ball is in. Because of his complete addiction we've decided not to let him have tennis balls. We thought his behavior to them was a little too extreme, and didn't want to risk him getting angry or territorial about them.

It may be too soon to tell, since we only got Tayla on the weekend, but she seems to be much more open to anything. So far she's been playing with balls, soft toys, ropes, etc. But keep in mind by Christmas she will still only be 4 months old, so something age appropriate would be good.

Keep in mind that we're in Australia, so it will be the middle of summer at Christmas time.

Ginger is kinda picky and doesn't play with much toys - instead she makes us run around so she can chase us through the house!

She has a sensitive tummy, but has done well with Zukes Power Bones Peanut Butter treats. Or maybe some cute, fun, functional accessories? Maybe a little light for her collar for when we go camping? Something like that?

Howdeh! Nikolai would like to participate, too! ;-)

He's a mellow guy - still not quite sure what to do with toys. He's not particularly responsive to treats (except cheese - LOVES cheese). His favorite thing is going for good, long walks - usually at night, so any sort of reflective/LED/lighted gear for his collar/harness or leash are probably good.

Do you have any friends with nice cameras? That is an option! I'm lucky as our pet store (they turned into a bird rescue now though) had a photographer there and so I got on good terms with her. Smile I'm so excited to do the shoot!

Found the people who did last year's, but won't be available til Dec 11th, which is way too late for cards. I have a decent camera, so will try to capture the perfect pic. Yeah, that'll happen!

I imagine having so many in your pack would be quite a challenge with photos! Having only one makes it easily, thankfully Koda doesn't mind dress up and will pose pretty for food. Next year is when I will have a new pup.. will be interesting!!!
