    Default OK, spill it! ...

    Am I the only one who went out shopping on Black Friday and bought just as much for the dog as I did for myself/Christmas?

    Aubie got a new bed and new stairs (4 steps and wooden instead of 3 steps and plastic)... and we bought 2 presents that didn't cost near as much as her stuff did.

    Yeah, yeah, she's spoiled. Good thing I didn't even go in the pet store!

    I didn't go shopping at all I stayed home because my son was working and I was afraid to leave the little puppies I'm babysitting so I guess they saved my pocket book for sure!

    My wife and daughter left the house at 4:50am so that left me and my 11 year old son at the house. He wanted to go shop for the new pup so I took him around noon. We still do not have the pup yet but we are not down to six days and counting. We ended up buying a bed, two bowls, Kong Ball, Nylabone, tug-of-war rope, some stuffies, and a Furminator. We should be good to go. I do not have food or treats yet though as I am waiting to see what the breeder is giving him already. I still need to get some dog shampoo but I won't be bathing him for a while hopefully.

    Well I must confess; I did the same...I started out innocently enough with a list in my hand, but when I left to go shopping, my little light of my life, reached up so gently and gave me a sweet kiss. As I shopped I kept thinking of his sweet face and more and more went into the cart. Each store he scored over and over again. I did buy for his wicked step-sisters, and his sister from another mister... (all 4 legged)...

    I have determined that my 4 legged babies are much more enjoyable to me than the 2 legged random people that are in my life...

    I am even making him his first Christmas stocking, which will never hold all the junk I bought him...lol I will donate half to the Sandy dogs in his name.

    You are all my kind of people! I went because I was bugged to death until I agreed. Every year I do most of my shopping online. I can't complain too much though... I created this monster by wanting to go out one time two years ago because I wanted something specific. I should have known better because now he likes to go and see the madness! We did compromise and go later in the morning at least, so it really was quiet most places by the time when went out.

    @BullDogGunner All of our dogs have had stockings since I was a kid. Aubie will have a couple things in hers this year, but not as much as usual since she's getting presents from Secret Santa Paws here and then at Carolina Pet Pantry. It will be fun for us both to be surprised though!

    @Hstead It sounds like you are well prepared. Can't wait to see pictures of your pup!

    @cali baker Tell me about it. I'm always seeing things I want to buy her, but I know I must resist (most of the time...)!

    Didn't set foot anywhere near a store on Black Friday, but I did order a few things for Ellie from Amazon that arrived today. A couple of Tuffy Toys that some other members have mentioned and they seem to be of a good quality, and a couple of balls that Ellie will hopefully enjoy. I'd still like to get her a couple of stuffies as she loves to suckle, a new nylabone, a tug of war toy, and possibly a new bed if there's room left under the tree.

    Great stuff, just be careful that the Nylabone is big enough, that it can't be swallowed, the Galileo Nylabone is, and is made for strong chewers, also most bulldogs, eat stuffies, and tug of war bones. My two pups who are now 9 months old, can only have Kong toys, because they eat everything, they have eaten Kong Wubbas, and stuffies in less than 3 hours, I had tug of war rope toys for them when they were younger, and my female Blossom almost choked on the ends, we cut them off, but still ended up taking it away, as she ripped it apart. They have also chewed pieces off the plastic tray in the crate, my guys have eaten rocks, sticks, socks, bones, toys. You should read the article by JeannieCo, on EBN news Articles, titled Dangers when animals swallow foreign objects. You won't believe what these guys can swallow, it's very scary. So please be careful until you know what your bully is like, if he chews his bed, or chews toys, or swallow objects. Don't leave toys or objects in the crate when he's alone, supervise him with stuffies until you know he's ok with them, and check them routinely for any missing pieces, or loose stuffing. I have spent about $1200 over 3 different times on my male for swallowed objects, for x- rays, and medications. Please use caution, so nothing happens to your little guy.
