    I am getting them a tin of cat food between the two of them and a handful of cat biks. They may have a bit of left over leg of whatever bird we're cooking, and then they will be chucked outside same as usual ;) They're easy to buy pressies for - same thing every year.....

    Get her an inflatable boy dog to keep her company at night.

    I certainly won't be getting him a whanker.

    Probably nothing, same as me, same as herself.

    My dog doesn't believe in Xmas.

    Bet you told him there was no dog Santa before he turned thirty (dog years) old and all, you despicable monster. :-)

    Look how happy this pooch is on his birthday. Ain't no creature in the history of the universe been so happy on his birfday.



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,297 ✭✭✭Jaxxy


    One of these! I have a Collie and a Jack Russell, both require a lot of mental stimulation.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,789 ✭✭✭✭ScumLord


    My turtles are Muslim extremists so I don't need to get them anything for Christmas. I might get them a net though, they keep jumping out of the tank shouting "Alan snackbar" (I think they're a bit deaf too).

    Why on earth would you get a christmas present for a dog? It's oblivious??

    Just give them a nice treat - it'll appreciat it no matter what it is but can't appreciate all thought and effort you're putting into this. All dogs care about is the gesture -- not the quality of what's given.

    They did tests on this ya know.

    My two cats play with lids from cans of milk, anything else I buy ends up gathering dust.

    A big pile of stuff that a butcher took out of an animal.

    She's becoming more aware... O_o

    The thing is dogs can get very attached to specific toys - getting more might be futile. You could try getting her some live prey - like a rabbit or something. Gotta hone those instincts.

    I got my dog a little panda teddy in Ikea last year, which cost like €15 or something. The cat had to have something too, so we got him a water bowl even though I've only ever seen him drink water about three times in seven years. Money's tight this year so I don't know.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,431 ✭✭✭MilesMorales1


    I'm gonna give them a special tea of carrots and green, with some new toys I'm gonna buy them.

    I have lots of rabbits.

    I don't have a pet you petist! :mad:

    I got Lucky a new duvet, a few toys but she's not getting them until the weather gets better as she lies in the cold wet grass waiting for them to be thrown, some fancy treats and a bottle of Remy Martin brandy.

    Other half wants to dress dog in reindeer outfit. Like f*ck I'm putting the dog through that!!! Get a big juicy bone from the petshop instead!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,339 ✭✭✭mojesius


    I was going to get him one of those interactive dog treat dispenser toys but i reckon he'll just eat the whole thing. Looks like another rubber Kong bone 'for extreme chewers' or maybe a football (no grooves for him to grip his teeth on). No point in squeaky toys, teddies or tennis balls. He had a squeaky toy ripped in 30 seconds last night.

    Got her not one, but two Christmas jumpers. She likes them, which is strange, because she absolutely hates wearing her little raincoat, will throw an absolute sulk if I even go to put it on her, but seems to like the jumpers.

    I got her a bunch of teddies and biscuits. She really enjoys chewing on barbies (only with supervision!) so I'll pick her up one of those too. It really is just the ripping paper she likes as she does actually get the paper off herself. As crazy as it sounds sometimes we mail her things because she loves getting parcels!
