Otie’s Christmas List

I absolutely love the Holiday season for many reasons, but mostly because of the presents. No, not because of the presents I receive, but because of the presents I get to GIVE.  I spend hours browsing online websites or stores in the mall looking for the perfect gifts for the special people in my life.  I can’t wait to do gift exchanges to see how my friends and family like what I’ve picked out for them.

So I got to thinking about what someone special in particular would want: Otis. If Otis and I could exchange gifts like everyone else, what would I get him that would make him squeal in excitement like I’m hoping my gifts for others will do? Here are my guesses:

1.   Unlimited bully sticks (that’s a no brainer for any dog, right?)

2.   A personal body guard to keep him safe from all the big bad things in the world. . . aka the gust of wind that just blew outside

3.  Access to my bed (he doesn’t get that right now)

4.   A drool catcher. I’m not sure this is designed yet, but if I could get one for Otis he would be set for life. We could water an entire garden for a year with the amount of saliva that dog produces.

5.  A personal tracker for his humans, equipped with a GPS for instant information on their whereabouts and when they are set to arrive home.

6.  A dog bed that supports his tendencies to sleep upside down.

7.   Every meal mixed with left over gravy or beef stew, courtesy of former-FosterGrandma.

8.  A personal itcher for all those hard to reach locations that humans neglect to constantly scratch for him.

9.  A lifetime supply of the biscuits that my coworker b j gives him every morning when we go to work together.

10.  Lots of peanut butter stuffed Kongs – but not for him, for all of his friends who are still in the shelter (he is a very generous pup and I know he would want that).

I wish I can give him all these things, but I’ll probably have to settle with just a lot of snuggles and head rubs, which I’m sure he will be just fine with anyway.

If you could give your pup anything for the Holidays, what would it be?!

    LOL…what a stunner he is! That “serious” face crack’s me up every time! I don’t have a dog but I do have a cat and I know she love’s her Kong kickeroo! She’ll toss it around and actually “hug” it…it’s so cute to watch her do that. She need’s a new one and that is what Santa will bring her! Have a great weekend everyone! Hugs/kisses to Otis for me! Love his Christmas collar..that is so cute on him!LOL xoxo

  2. I know Corbee would really love a foster sister, since our lives haven’t been calm or routine enough to allow one recently. Hopefully he’ll be recovered from today’s surgery to have one in time for Christmas!
