EDIT BY CORGIPAWS:
I totally spaced getting the thread up this early! Glad you made one, wolfsnaps! Just a reminder to all those who participated: You ARE required to at least post here that you GOT your package AS SOON AS it comes in the mail so the person that bought for you isn't left hanging not knowing if you got their gifts or not. Pictures when you open your goodies are greatly appreciated as well. I hope everyone enjoys the exchange this year! Happy Holidays, DFC!

There ARE some packages that have not shipped yet, but the shipper has at least checked in, so if yours doesn't come this week, rest assured NO ONE goes without and you will get something!

I am such a nerd. I got my secret santa today and could NOT WAIT TO SHARE! Khan was my Secret Santa and can I just say, you outdid yourself, lady! LOL WOW. Thank you so much!

I came home with groceries and saw a box on my front step and was so excited. LOL. But not nearly as excited as the dogs got after I opened it! Holy Moly!

As I started pulling toys out of the box, Sarge decided that he wanted this one for sure...I didn't even see him take it (as you can see, it still has the packaging attached!)



No worries, we took it off!



I knew Sarge would gravitate towards stuffed animals....and as such, this was all but expected of him to do:




No worries though, we share in this house:




I think Hunter was the most excited. I apologize for the blurry pics but he was ALL OVER THE PLACE with these new toys!



He especially loved this ball within a ball toy. He practically just plays with himself with it! He kicks it around, smashes his face into it, and acts like a real crazy dog. He loves it. Again, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!




Dozer takes time to warm up to toys. I don't have video capability right now but this is what he does. He takes his preferred toy, runs through the yard, and shakes it from side to side. The more he likes it, the more he shakes. HE took to this holee roller pretty quickly.

(he is fat. I know. We are working on it.)





Not shown is the babble ball. It is a plastic ball that makes funny sounds. I am on my way to work so their play session was cut short. Plus, I will surprise them with that another day. So much excitement today! WOW!

Yay!! So glad everyone loved their toys! That talking ball is pretty dang funny! We have one, and sometimes when the dogs just run by fast it moves just enough and you will hear it say something, or Burp! LOL!! I hope they love the snake as much as Khan. It's gotta be the most annoying toy on the planet. Khan lays with it and just squeaks it when you are trying to watch TV,(I'm sure he does it on purpose!) yet all you can do is just laugh!
Merry Christmas from one coast to another!

My present arrived last night and my dogs already seem to know its for them! I'm going to make them wait until tomorrow to open it though because that's my day off so I'll hopefully get better pics of them enjoying the gift!

A big Christmas thanks to kathylcsw! The sweaters fit Penny and Peyton great and the dogs love the toys. Well except for Milo, he's always a humbug though. He never wants to play with anything so don't feel bad!

Here are some pics of them enjoying their sweaters!



Now Penny is a pretty Christmas present!



Peyton being adorable as always. This is my favorite color combination, I love it!



Peyton enjoying her new rope toy



Penny likes it too



We especially love it for our new Dober who is a tugging fiend, so at least now we have a good handle to hold onto!



Peyton playing with her new Kong Wubba. It's hard to get a decent pic of her with it since she's always flipping it in the air! I love the color too!

I am so happy that you and the dogs like the gifts. I was afraid that the XL sweater would be too big. It felt weird to shop for big dogs after years of shopping for less than 15lb puppies!

Thanks very much creek817 (Stef) package arrived today all in one piece. I was out so my kind neighbour signed for the package!
Doesn't Stanley look handsome in his new collar and lead - fantastic love it! He was all excited when I put it on him and then the lead as he thought I was taking him for a walk.....but I wasn't, we were just posing for the photos.
Awesomely Awesome!

Got my secret Santa gift! Thank you soooo much bumblegoat!!! She sent us dehydrated meat treats all the way from Sweden along with a stuffingless toy (perfect for my boys)! Love your illustrations too - very nice personal touch and they're so cute! We love it, thank you so much! The kitties are already trying to rip through the bags of treats lol, even the ferrets can have these! I'm going to take pictures and post when I'm done with all my work. :happy:

The kids got their SS gift! Thank you Caty for the awesome toys and treats!
As you can see Khan could barely contain himself as I was opening up the package!
As soon as they heard the squeaker go off, Shelby couldn't decide if she liked the star or the tug!

Pics are grainy cuz I snapped them with my cell phone! I wasn't thinking about having the camera ready as they pounced on all the stuff!! LOL

Yay, I'm glad you got it already! :) It arrived a lot earlier than I thought it would. I hope your pets enjoy the dehydrated moose treats, I figured something with moose would be fairly 'exotic' for someone in Florida. :D Looking forward to seeing the photos!

So aaanyway, I got my gift! Thanks Penny (MollyWoppy)! The gifts are awesome, and damn, shipping prices really add up when you send international packages, eh? o_o I'm so happy that some are willing to ship internationally, so people like me can participate, so thanks! This definately makes up for last year (which didn't go that well for me)!

Time for pictures!

Opening the package, I see a cute Christmas card and a bunch of wrapped gifts.

'Is this for me?'

Loke in the new collar he got, very cute and yes, it fits! He also grabbed the toy he got, a purple bird.

It is a Kong toy, and seems to be fairly durable for being a 'soft' toy. Maybe this one will last a while?

Oh no, is that stuffing?!

The stuffing from the poor bird's eyes... His eyes did not last for very long.

The poor bird, covered in drool and with stuffing poking out of his eye.

All the stuff I got except the bird (Loke did not let me have it for this photo). Some stuff for me too, and even something for my cat!

My cat Tilda, eh, enjoying her gift. As you can see, she obviously approves. '... Am I supposed to play with these things?'


I hope everyone enjoys the photos. I can also add that Tilda does play with toys, but of course not when I want her to for a photo (she is a cat, after all). The cat toys are a perfect gift for another reason though, since I've recently decided to contact cat rescues about fostering cats! So I'm sure those toys will be used by a bunch of cats eventually. :)

Again, thanks so much!
