Begging For More

Do you know animals can sense events before they happen? Throughout history, animals have been documented as behaving erratically prior to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions leading to a theory that animals can detect major events hours, days and even weeks in advance.

Certainly, Christmas is no exception. Your loyal friend can smell this day coming all year long, and he doesn't want to be left out! He deserves new toys, lavish affection, and extra treats on this special day! The very first name you should cross off your Christmas list is Fido. 



Like Danger, your doggie too won't be able to resist snatching this treat from your generous hands!



Today Holly Jolly Sisters is bringing you Holiday Gift Ideas for those you can't forget!



Fill your doggies stocking to the brim with these gourmet treats and leave them salivating, begging and wishing everyday was Christmas.

I love making my babies treats and am always looking for receipes. I learned last year not to wrap treats and put them under the tree.....and I thought I could sniff out Christmas presents. LOL

Pamela said...

I wish I had a little doggie to make treats for. Danger sure seems to be enjoying himself!!

Barbara said...

Looks to me like Danger might eat them all! What a cute idea. Are there any for cats? I'll slide on over and see.
