In our house, no Holiday celebration would be complete without including Sugar. Actually since we had Sugar, our Holiday traditions have changed, and lucky for us, it got even merrier. I think Sugar seems to know it’s the Holidays, which leads to great adventure. Sugar’s Golden Smile says it all!
5 Ways To Make Your Dog’s Holiday Merrier
1. Get Your Dog a Stocking: Sugar has a personalized Holiday stocking.
2. Take Your Dog Shopping: We are so fortunate that many SoCal retail stores are dog-friendly. It’s a blast taking Sugar shopping and makes Holiday shopping less stressful. Another shopping option is to take your dog to PetSmart, Where pets are family. Take this opportunity to find stocking stuffers for your dog.
Seasonal healthy dog treats are the best stocking stuffers, like dog biscuits Santa Snacks from Blue Buffalo™. A special Holiday dog treats to let your dog know that he/she is a much-loved family member. BLUE Santa Snacks are baked with nutritious natural ingredients like oatmeal, cinnamon, barley, pumpkin, flaxseed and carrots. Also, these treats come in fun different holiday shapes like stars, gingerbread men, and Christmas trees. Your dog will definitely love BLUE Santa Snacks crunchiness and taste!
3. Capture Your Dog’s Holiday Memories: The holidays are the best times to capture special memories. For the past weeks, we’ve enjoyed seeing marvelous decorated Christmas trees. Sugar had so much fun and I was delighted to capture several precious expression. Of course, during our photo shoot she had some BLUE Santa Snacks.
Be inspired by your dog’s special photo and turn it into your Holiday Cards. I recently read that about 67% of Holiday cards are of their pets or family with their pets. For many years, Sugar has been the star of our Holiday cards.
4. Serve Your Dog A Special Meal: Many food brands offer a special Holiday meal, like BLUE Buffalo’s Santa Stew. Santa Stew is a hearty feast that features traditional favorite holiday ingredients such as turkey, green beans, sweet potatoes and cranberries. Sugar Golden Approves of Santa Stew, watch her pre-holiday meal video.
5. Paw it Forward: Sugar is very fortunate that she has a forever home, daily meals & treats and toys to play. Every year we make sure to paw it forward to needy pets in our community. It is a pawsome way to extend your love and gratitude.

i try to make my girls life happier everyday, not just for the holiday. i ususally dont take them shopping b/c i am scared they might catch something. we went to a few halloween parties, and the 2 girls caught a virus and need meds. so i am very careful abt where i take my girls. i buy them treats, brush their teeth, they get reg check ups at the vet, i groom them my self, have several sets of clippers, stand, etc. lots of hair products, and buy their treats they love, they also get very good food, lots of suppliments and i go to a homeopathic vet. my girls are in my will and trust, i have already contacted someone that will take care of them in case something happens to me and money to take care of them as well.
Sandy Weinstein says
their favorite treats are dried beef tripe and beef eshopagus treats and they all sleep with me under the covers.

those all sound like yummy snacks
Zukes is one of our favorites treats! We always give our pup a stocking and a larger Christmas gift. 🙂
Danyelle H says
Sugar is so sweet! Reminds me of my Bailey girl. We make our pups Christmas special by giving them their own stockings as well. Bailey has a Santa hat and we usually get some cute pictures. This year we have a Great Dane, Atlas, that has joined the family so I’m thinking reindeer antlers!
We try to include them in as much as possible… and they all get stockings & gifts.
They love most all treats!

My girls would be very happy to have that beautiful stocking
with their name on it.That would be a wonderful treat for them,
and make the holidays bright.
Amy A says
I always wrap gifts and make a stocking for Nala. I love opening gifts with her because she gets so excited especially when it is her favorite treat which The Honest Kitchen Beams. The only downside of wrapping gifts for her is she thinks all of them for her so she unwraps things that weren’t hers but at least I get a laugh.

My dog likes it when I just spend time with her. She likes Zuke’s and One Dog Organic treats best!
My pups have some fancy outfits for the holidays (although maybe that makes my holidays brighter more than theirs!). They also get lots of attention, some new toys and special treats.
They are both huge fans of pig ears. I’m not quite as much of a fan…
They always get a Christmas stocking! Bully sticks are favorites.
