2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures.

Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help!

We had a GREAT turn out last yr for the Secret Santa and i thought it would be fun to do it again this yr. im behind on the 8ball but we can still do it. here is the info if you want to partake in the holiday fun:)


Please PM me your name, address and dog/s names by NOV 7!!!!! and i will get back to everyone by the 14th or sooner.

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 AFTER christmas, that way we keep the secret. it would be nice to post on here that you did receive your gift (no name of sender) so the sender knows it showed up.

ok on to the fun, please post in this thread what your dog/s like/dislikes are so that whom ever receives your pups will have an idea of what gifts to pick up

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!!!

forgot to say you can put your name on the return address, or not, if you don't please add your name to the inside package so the receiver knows who sent it. just want to keep it a secret till that point Smile
let me know if you have any questions!

This is so much fun, I keep thinking of new ideas.

Libby loves almost anything except rubber toys.

Her favorite treats are duck wrapped sweet potatoes, pig ears and beggin strips, and her favorite toys are anything that she can hold in her mouth and squeek constantly. Ropes for tug a war. Squeeky balls are a bigs one, Her favorite toy is her husky beanie buddy, I have had to sew its head on several times so if someone can find another one, that would be awesome.
Any treats that could go into her Tug a Jug.

We could always used potty pick up bags. haha

Enjoy all the holiday shopping.

Sierra and Jack love just about everything.

Likes-rawhides, squeaky toys (never last long but still fun), natural bones, 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)
happy shopping



thanks Val!

Can all members participate? Or is it solely for members who've been here a while?

Likes: Naturally- Shed Deer Antlers, Wubba, Busy Buddy Bouncy Bone, Bully Sticks, and basically anything else that involves food and play time.

So far, nothing on the dislikes list. I'd say just stay away from soft, plastic, artificial bones as she's an "aggressive chewer".

There is also always a demand for Frontline, Vet's Best and Nutri-Vet products (supplements, vitamins, pain relievers, digestive enzymes, etc.) for the rescues, that I care for.

Lulu loves tennis balls more than anything else in this world (except food)

Ghost loves her stuffed animals. We've been having a lot of luck with the stuffing free and chew proof ones, otherwise they are shredded within minutes. Squeak toys are great too

They both like chewy treats too, like rawhide and the Canyon Creek Ranch rolls. Anything that will keep them occupied chewing for a little while.

Happy shopping everyone!

Yay! This should be fun.

My dogs like anything and everything but Mishka LOVES stuffed animal things and treats them like her babies <3 Until someone eats them...

There isn't anything they don't like but no rawhides or stuff with filling.

And I don't mind anything Christmas themed Smile

Also, sharing is NOT an issue! lol

Oh how fun is this!!

Ok, for Mya and Kody....

Likes:

Grain free treats or healthy treats (due to Kody's tummy issues)
Kongs
Kong airballs, kong wubbas (they LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE 2), kong footballs, any tough tough toy basically, but no rubber please. They hate them.

Rawhides (not flat ones please), bully sticks


Dislikes:

Any stuffed toy with squeakers (they can destroy these in 2min and Kody eats them...*sigh*)
Rubber toys (they pay no attention to them)

Just about anything they can eat or chew although we avoid rawhide (baked pork skin is fine)
Plush toys don't last long, but we haven't tried the chew proof or stuffingless ones.

Rubber toys (totally ignore them)
Haven't found anything else they don't like...

Perhaps members can include their dogs' neck sizes as well as color, material and style preferences for collars.

Embarassed Just a thought.

Oh, and maybe their closest pet store also. So maybe tags can be an option? It's always good to have an extra tag since they wear off. I THINK that when you purchase a tag it just gives you a code that input into the machine. You could always send the code to them!

Obviously this would be in addition to something that the doggies would actually enjoy. Don't think they would be too thrilled to receive just a tag or a collar...LOL!

WOO! This is soooo fun! Very Happy

Kale LOVES plush toys (loofas and the dragon with the chew guard are his favs)! Pretty much anything that squeaks. Strongly dislikes rubber toys. As for treats, Canyon Creek is a favorite over here, but anything USA made is great too Very Happy and Christmas themed toys are awesome as well Razz

We got Ghost one of those dragons the day we got her, and she loves it. It's like her security blanket and she carries it around everywhere, and she won't go in the crate unless it's in there. It's so funny!

Awesome, thanks. Was just worried -I'm not too sure how many other Canadians are looming around the site.

As for Aevyn, he likes everything. Ropes and Soft toys being his favs. He can't, however, have very much grain. So careful with the treaties, please.

Can't wait! This is going to be so much fun~

Yay so much fun!

Neo 's likes: Bones, Anything with stuffing and squeakers, he's not picky at all. "He" would love something to not make his tags clang, it really gets on "his" nerves. Wink

Dislikes: No treats please! No rawhide either, the pieces get stuck in the carpet. I have to pick them out, and it's not fun!

Food is tough for mine due to Lu's allergies, no grain, chicken, beef, lamb, turkey, or pork. Venison, duck, and rabbit are ok. Natures Variety has rabbit treats both really like. Dehydrated sweet potatoes are a big hit.

Both love plush toys! A Petco gift card would work too, they like to shop their for toys.
