Boo immediately tried to start opening the gifts.

I had to put down the camera and get all the gifts out while Boo tried to run off with every single package.

mistake #1: let Boo pick out a package to unwrap. It turned out to be bully sticks and she wanted one NOW!!!

I was able to wrestle the bullies away from Boo and we opened the rest of the gifts. Here she is distracted by the Hide-A-Squirrel.

This is one of my favorite gifts…. The Treat Wheel Dog Treat Puzzle. Boo is so food motivated that she needed little direction or encouragement. Notice the yellow “cap” is still in mid-air as Boo narrows down on her target.

Doreen, all of the clothes fit Boo PERFECTLY. I LOVE the ladybug vest! The sweater looks so good on Boo (those are her colors) and the reversible bandana is going to be Boo’s holiday wear until December 31[sup]st[/sup]!

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Dawondergirls are DA-BEST!

I'm so glad that Boo liked the puzzle. It's very popular here, too. I love the picture of Boo getting her teeth into the presents.

I'm glad that the vest and sweater fit. I used Sadie as a model - they are the same size and color. So, if it fit Sadie, I hoped it would work for Boo.
The bully sticks almost didn't maek it into the package. Patti stole them when my back was turned and tucked them untouched in her crate for a snack later on.
Have a wonderful Christmas!

Our Secret Santa last year was Doreen and the gang. You and Boo were very lucky! My girls love the Fruitable snacks. That greyhound book looks pretty cool! That was an awesome box of goodies!

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

What wonderful stuff! I think my favorite is the ladybug vest. It's hard to pick a favorite from all of those great gifts, though!

What a great package, it looks like Boo is in total agreement!!! :LOL: That sign is quite nice, if I can ask where that was found? I wouldn't mind getting one...people around here like to swing open the door and leave it hanging open! It makes me so nervous!!!

These interactive games (puzzles, hide-a-treat, hide-a-squirrel) seem very popular! I have to invest in one for Paisley this year, it seems. It looks like a lot of very lucky iggies have been getting them and they are going BONKERS over them!!! :D

Btw...that IG on the Moon print is one of my favorites ever. :wub: I have had it saved on Etsy in my cart for over a year now. So gorgeous!!! I have the greyhound book, too :D it is SO nice to just sit back and relax and look through the pictures! :) The sweater is lovely. I love the colors. And the vest is too cute. Can't wait to see Boo modeling them!!!

One thing throwing me off...the stocking says "Good dog" but the bone says "naughty," so which is it? ;) Has she been naughty or nice this year? Hehe!

Iknow! I took pictures of her wearing them but when I downloaded my pictures to my laptop, it told me they were corrupt and deleted them. :-(

The sweater fits her perfectly! and the ladybug vest is so cute on her! I will take her for a walk later today and try to get some pictures with my phone.

WOW!! She had a ball. Those bully sticks will distract them everytime lol. Love the treat puzzle we got one for ours (not just like that one ) and it is NO challenge for Emma. She is my least food motivated but smart as a whip. The other two it takes them awhile to figuer it out (unless Emma helps <g>. ) I love the silvery color of Boos coat she looks like Christmas. What a great haul. Dawondergirls Did great!!!
