Christmas Goodies!

My boys got their Christmas in July package over the weekend.  Our swap partner was the lovely Ruby.  Ruby really knows how to shop for a dog, and we couldn't have asked for anything better!
Our box of goodness!  I'm not sure why this posted sideways.  
Here's what we got.  Look at all them treats!  I wasn't able to get any pix of them enjoying their treats as they devoured them way too quickly before I could even get the camera ready.
This bunny unstuffy is supposed to be for Shiver, but Chico immediately claimed it as his own, even doing a tug of war with Shiver over it.  Shiver is not one to give up his toys lightly, but he let Chico have it and played with the squirrel instead.  Sorry this is blurry, Chico wouldn't stay still.
Here's Shiver playing with the squirrel.
All that excitement just wore Shiver out and he needed a nap.  Here he is, using the squirrel as a pillow and one leg wrapped around the bunny!  The green thing is a toy he already had.  Shiver thinks all the toys belong to him, so this is pretty typical of something he'd do!

Thank you to Ruby for all the wonderful pressies.  My boys were absolutely thrilled with everything!

Don't know if anyone actually checks the links, but I always like to share them anyways.  Checking out what everyone got makes me realize I really need to step up my game next year!  I'll post more links they become available.  If I miss yours, please let me know so I can be sure to add it.

I was at the store last week and found some really cute dog bowls.  Because it was in between paydays, I was paying for my purchase with cash and really bummed that I didn't bring enough $$ for them.  So when I went back on Friday to finish up my dog swap shopping, I was shocked and thrilled that they were still there!  Usually if you see something you want there, you need to snatch it up right away because it won't be there the next time.  I came right home, washed them really well, and filled them up.  My boys didn't seem nearly as excited about them as I was.  Oh well!
While I was there, I asked about the possibility of special ordering Frosty Paws.  They used to carry them all the time, but not anymore.  I had just presumed they weren't selling well, and that's why they stopped carrying them.  The manager said that they've been trying to get them in for months, but the vendor seems to be having a problem providing them.  He didn't have any idea of when they might be back in, but I'm not giving up.  There's still a couple more places in town to try.  Just because the one store's vendor doesn't have them, doesn't mean the other store's vendors won't.  The coupons expire at the end of the year, so if I can't get them within a few months, I'll give them away.
