    I already have toys in my Chrissy stuff for them, Molly has a couple of balls (she's a ball nutter lol), Jack a massive rope toy and one of those "Tuff" thingo's, Mia has a new Nylabone and another chew toy, they will get steak for their brekkie, and if I can find suitable toys, they may get some more!

    My lovely SBT's are very much a part of our family and much loved, so they will be part of our Christmas celebrations.

    They will get a special Chrissie dinner...a large raw bone each wrapped up, so they can rip the paper off. I haven't decided on what toys they will get yet, since most toys only last about 5 minutes with Sumo...

    Same here Cleasanta.... my loving SBT's (past & present) are very much part of my family too & very loved, so it's only natural that they are involved in our celebrations etc & i wouldn't have it any other way

    I'll probably get Troopa some tougher toys. He's only got about 5-6 puppy toys at the moment so Christmas is a good excuse to spoil him with some bigger, better toys without hubby rolling his eyes at me haha.

    My dogs, and the rescues, are very much loved and part of the family also. I still don't have birthday parties or presents for them, nor do they partake in Easter or Christmas celebrations. Religion to them is nothing. In fact, isn't their some thing in some religion about dogs not even having souls?? I recognise my dogs are dogs I guess and I don't consider them to be little humans in fur suits so my pratical and realistic side feels that buying gifts for them is a little silly.

    The pets here used to get a small pressy when the kids were young because that pleased them. I too do not dress them up or buy pressies for them but I respect the fun that those that do get out of it.

    Yes, I agree that people get fun out of it. It doesn't bother me on the whole, what does bother me though is that I firmly believe that the problems we are beginning to see with dogs in society is largely attributable to people not understanding that dogs are animals and not little humans.

    I guess that is why I have an aversion to treating my animals as anything more than what they are if that makes sense. I liken it to people who keep monkeys as pets and similar. Animals are not humans. I guess that's for another thread though.

    I have thrown a christmas hat on my dogs on the odd occassion and tried to get a pic but laughing till your insides hurt make it hard to hold a camera steady.

    I've actually always wanted to throw a hat on them for a quick pic for a card but have never managed to do it successfully. I have seen some lovely Christams cards made this way. *sigh* one day perhaps.
