Traditionally, the pets get stocking gifts too. The treats went over well, but Ellie is an elderly lady these days (fifteen!), and where she used to fall on these toys at the holidays, generally shredding them within a few days in her eagerness to get at the squeakers, she is either too tired or too wise to fall for it now. That would require exertion.
So if any locals have more enthusiastic doggies and would like a brand-new teddy bear with squeakers for pet disassembly, we would be very happy to leave it on the porch for pick-up. Let me know!
