Abby's First Christmas With Us

Abby's first Christmas was a bit disappointing. We open one present each on Christmas Eve, and we gave Abby her booties. She wanted nothing to do with them. Gerard finally got one on but it was upside down and came off about 5 seconds after she walked on it. We felt bad so we gave her another one too.

Remember that real nice pet bed I bought on Black Friday that I went back special for after looking around? If not, here's the link to the post about it: Our Annual Black Friday Shopping Trip. Gerard thought it would be warmer for her to lay on than the floor and we were anxious to give it to her. Well, that was her big Christmas gift and she didn't like it. Even with treats trying to bribe her, she wouldn't go on it. She'd just put her paws up on it long enough to get the treat. We tried putting it on the chair she likes to lay on but it didn't work. We put it in our bedroom where she usually sleeps and she laid next to it instead so I finally threw it on the floor at the end of the bed so she could sleep in her usual spot. So much for her Christmas Eve.

Finally, on Christmas she loved the pork bone we got for her and also likes the Furminator so it wasn't all bad. She was happy with that as you can see in the above video. We were glad she finally got something she liked!

We have four beds for Little Bit. You just have to let them decide when they are going to sleep on them. You can lead a horse to water, but can't make them drink kind of thing. As for the booties. Dogs hate those things. Ours does too. If you can get them on you will laugh and laugh watching them try to walk in them. Just saying. as for the bone. Right on the money.

Have a terrific day Karen. :)

I hates to wear anything on my feets, too! I refused to even wear my cute little bunny slippers.

Aw, that was so funny trying to get the booties on her. Our poor doggies had to suffer through wearing sweaters. They acted so embarrassed! LOL

Abby wasn't having anything to do with those booties that's for sure! Sadie hates to have her feet touched so I know she wouldn't wear them either. At least Abby loved her bone!
