    I am considered weird for this LOL. I buy my dogs things for every holiday, Valentines, Easter, Birthday, Christmas, ect. They don't get a lot, usually stuff from Target and the Dollar tree.

    This years basket. This is one of the dog basket. The rats got chew blocks, a new hammock and treats. Chicks got crickets worms and a new feeder. Dogs got these. Each one got a different shirt, collar, and treats. Here is one for Paisley, who I haven't gotten yet, but will be getting Good Friday. Her's is green, Grace's is pink, Junior's is blue and Bella has orange.
    Edit to add list of contents:
    T shirt that says "Tree Hugger" and has an earth on it- Target $1
    Collar and leash, argyle print- Dollar Tree $2
    Chew bone- Dollar Tree $1
    People Crackers- Dollar Tree $1
    Toys- Dollar Tree $2
    There are 2 treats in there, bought a whole box for a dollar.

    When I had a dog I always bought them treats and toys for the holidays. The cats get catnip toys at Christmas. The chickens get all the nearly rotted food they can eat year round!

    I am sure that us three are not the only ones. I even buy baby carrots for the rabbit. She is spoiled as are the rest of our animals. Feathered and furred.

    Most of the time i do. But usually if i see something cute and its not too expensive buy it. I love spoiling them.

    We tried one year letting Grace open her christmas present. We regret that. The next year she though " OH I have SOOOOO many presents" We came home one day to see all the presents ripped open. She did find her bones though... and my laptop [​IMG]

    Yep, I buy gifts for the pets. Last year, my husband wrapped the dog's christmas gifts. My gifts were in a plastic bag LOL


    But, how can you resist it? They love their new toys..

    I buy neighbor's, friend's, and coworker's pets gifts at Christmas. No one really thinks it's weird. I think. Maybe behind my back, hmmm.
    Oh well, my chickens are cooler than their pets. [​IMG]

    imp-I have at least 100 cat toys under the entertainment center. Too lazy to move it, so I just buy more.
