Dogs have more to look for under the tree this Christmas than cats do. Fifty-six percent of dog owners say they'll buy their pets a gift this Christmas, but only 48 percent of cat owners plan a gift.

So this is where " puttin' on the dog " comes from ?

Well dog chaperones beat out cat chaperones just because cat chaperones know the feline pharoah of the house cannot be bribed to do tricks for shiny things. ;-) Of course, they'll chase and catch shiny things, but they won't give you any credit for bringing it to them! But dogs show you gratitude when you give them gifts, so it makes sense that dog chaperones would buy them more gifts. Love 'em both!

My faamily will be lucky to get any gifts from me this year, let alone my precious Daisy Mae. Who can afford it?

If I had a dog - which I plan to get a shelter dog soon - I would buy him/her a toy. One inexpensive.

Noted, thanks Jae. When I had dogs I always bought them something for Christmas and also gave gifts to friends' dogs. I have asked Santa for another dog for several years now but he said I had to wait until we moved out of this Lyme disease/deer tick infested area. Hope that's soon...but it won't be this Christmas.

Hey Jae, now my remark is neither dog nor xmas related but I just want to say thanks for the Christmas present you just gave to us here by finally having your daily load compiled in one place like it should be! :-)) THANKS for that! ;-)

Thanks Jae. I understand Patricia's problems. Unless it can be made very inexpensively, it's nothing for Christmas again. Fortunately, we actually don't celebrate it. We celebrate Yule, the day with the shortest amount of daylight in the year. It's religious not commercial. I like that idea somehow.

Too bad. There are cat stockings in department stores, and we always buy our cats gifts (as well, our cats buy us gifts because they are our 'furkids' (a new word I just learned today for pets who are treated like children).

Finally huh Angelika..well it has been at the bottom of my last two or three 'daily loads' but the point is now also easy to locate and will become more so with my next one. Still kinda new at all this ..but as the old saying goes..slow but sure :-). I will not be doing 'daily' after this week probably as we are moving and time for computer things will be less for the next few weeks. Anyway..thanks for the 'heads up' on my finally getting that system in place.

We don't do the Christmas thing either Mary L...We prefer to make New Years our celebration day each year...Start of a new year to be, whatever, but that's when.. if there is any celebration to be had for us during 'the holiday is done. Mac's birthday is on the 3rd of Jan. so it, more often than not, gets the 'holiday focus' over that of New Years in general. Just not Christmas or any other religious holidays that we ourselves celebrate. Birthdays and Anniverseries are our main annually celebrations. When our 'furkids'...two cats...were still alive we did get them a few treats and a toy for New Years stockings for Santa to fill though. :-)
