Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didn´t cut the trunk....the tree...
last year was my first Christmas with my furry baby (Gizmo) he's half pomeranian/half papillon. We had a big family Christmas and Gizmo got gifts from three people! My cousin, myself, and my mom (his grandma got him SEVERAL things :P) He even opened them by ripping into the wrapping paper. After the whole family finished unwrapping gifts, we made such a mess that we let him play in the left over wrapping paper. Overall, he got a Christmas sweater, five new Christmas-themed toys, and a home made doggie biscuit set with directions, an ingredient list and doggie biscuit bone shaped cutters. We really love our pets in my family!

I have both cats and dogs. Since they are my family, of course they are included.
Each has a stocking, each gets toys from Santa.
I also put up a live tree every year. The dogs with me to pick it out and bring it home. They remember this tradition from year to year and I've come to call it "Merry Outside-Inside" because the outdoor tree comes inside. When the tree comes inside, and the lights go outside...the party begins!
I also have a small, artificial tree that is decorated with milk bones and cat treats on the branches (no strings, hooks or electrical cords). Once a day, the pets all get to help themselves to the treats on the tree. They like this tradition!
They also go with me when I drive around looking at Christmas lights, and late on Christmas Eve they put on their sleigh bell collars and we go for a walk through the quiet neighborhood.

Great to finally find a good and active board for a holiday lovin’ guy like me!
My dog loves Xmas, its so much fun waking up with him. On Christmas Eve, he waits in front of the bedroom door all night long staring at it and hardly sleeps , if at all. He’s too excited. When I finally wake up and I open the door, he runs as fast as he can, straight to his stocking. He’so cute, like a little kid. But then again, I dont think, at least for me, that Xmas morning feeling ever goes away
