My Dogs' Holiday Wish List

Ready for the Red Carpet in Sequins
When these toys arrived for a holiday celebration, Tanner's eyes popped out. Before I could put them away he had nabbed one and was cuddling it lovingly. How could I take it away? 

Tanner's favorite indoor toys are plushies like the fun holiday toys seen below from Petco. Whenever items like this arrive I have to get them up on a high shelf to keep him from assuming they are his. 

Fashion Neckwear for All Seasons
This past month Tanner, Oliver and Jacque all had some tough times. We endured stitches, emergency surgery, glandular issues and cones. Fun? Not so much! We need some bonding fun, so that's why Tanner got his pick of the litter.

When Tanner snagged the holiday toy I decided I'd let him have his pick, just this once.  I told him it's his Holiday Wish List  come early. Does your dog have a holiday wish list? What a great way to bond!

Holiday Toys from Petco
Let's have some Twitter fun for some additional Petco prizes. Here's how you can enter:
  • Kraft your own Tweets (Maximum 3 unique Tweets each day) that include the @Petco and @AllThingsDog handles and list your dog's wishlist items. Use the hashtag #FidosWishList. I'll give you a sample below to RT, but you need to Tweet your own ALSO in order to enter.
  • Not on Twitter? That's okay. Each entrant must also leave a comment below for each of their pets, mentioning his favorite wish list items, his weight and neck measurement. I'll combine Tweets and comments in my drawing from the total number of both.
Don't want to wait? No problem! Look up your nearest Petco store at Petco.com and you'll find a fabulous assortment of holiday toys for your girls and boys.

Here are the 10 prizes:
  1. Size Small red sequin hoodie with detachable hood.
  2. 2 assortments of Hanukkah toys
  3. 3 assortments of Christmas/Winter toys
  4. 4 winners will receive holiday neckwear and a toy. These adorable neckwear pieces can be used throughout the year for other events such as red carpet walks, Valentine's Day and most any special occasion.
These prizes will be distributed late, but still enjoyed in the new year. Tanner assured

me it's better to be a late Santa than a no-show Santa--BOL! I'll draw and announce winners on January 2, 2014. Let the Tweeting and Comments begin!

My dog Hazel would love some new toys as well as a bag full or rawhide chews! :)
She is 36 pounds and her neck measurement is 18"!



KateV said...

I tweeted for Shiloh =) Shiloh has lots of toys and treats on his wishlist- we're still searching for a suitable chew for him that will keep him occupied and interested, but still stand up to his chewing. And though he has lots of toys, he loves getting new ones. I've been seeing the Petco toys a lot, and the fox toy and the owl "blanket" toy are definitely on his wish list! Shiloh is 40lbs. He just finally settled down so I don't want to measure his neck at the moment, but he usually wears medium collars- he's about the size of a small border collie.



Jeanne Pursell said...

Rosie, my second pug, is 18lbs, has a neck measurement of 14 inches, and would just love a new stuffy to attack and play with. She plays rough, then curls up and cuddles the stuffy.



KateV said...

Is this a daily tweet/comment entry giveaway, or one entry only?



Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

Thanks to KateV and other very astute readers for catching my missed info. Entrants may Tweet 3 unique Tweets per day, per the guidelines in the post. Good luck!
