Furbaby Stocking Stuffers

Thursday, December 8, 2016

Disclosure:  PetMatrix provided me with the information, product samples, and Visa gift cards for my post.  

The holidays are inching closer by the minute which means I probably should get shopping, right?  Ironically the only family member who has all of their gifts so far is Brady, the ten year old puggle.  Last year my husband hooked him up with a brand new, comfy dog bed so this year we are making it all about his favorite thing - food.  I have to be honest, I do love finding little toys and treats to stuff his stocking up with because I find it ridiculously cute watching him on his hind legs, sniffing the bottom of the it and trying to figure out how to get it down.  This guys was my first baby so it's only appropriate I treat him right, especially during the holidays.

Here are a few of my favorite stocking stuffers for your furry friend:

Dog Toothbrush and Toothpaste 
Don't laugh.  My dog could knock out an army with his breath.  Plus his brother and sisters get a toothbrush in their stockings so I can't leave him out.

New Collar
Every year we like to spruce up Brady's duds with a new collar.  However, I struggle to think of parting with his Indiana University one.  Homeboy looks so spirited in it.

Squeak Toy
It's kind of a family joke to see how long it takes Brady to rip apart these toys to get to the squeaker.  Or just to rip it apart in general.  I get it too, Brades.  That thing is ANNOYING.

 SmartBones® Chews
One year my mom had the grand idea of getting Brady a pig's ear for Christmas.  He ate it in one sitting and was up with an upset stomach all night long.  Right?  Thanks, Nana.  Since then I'm careful about the treats that we give Brady because he can eat things in lightning flash speed, which any pet owner knows can be awful for the stomach.  SmartBones® are my favorite choice when it comes to chews for Brady because they are made from wholesome, favorable vegetables and combined with a layer of chicken which makes for an irresistible treat!  SmartBones® also uses grain-free formula which makes it easier for dogs to digest.  When compared to regular rawhides, SmartBones® are highly digestible and less likely to cause stomach and intestinal blockage.  With flavors like  Chicken, Sweet Potato, Peanut Butter (Brady's favorite!), Beef and Dental, you are sure to find the perfect treat for your pup.

I really am struggling to even process where I need to begin with my shopping this holiday season.  Every year I do this to myself and every year I tell my husband we need to scrap gifts and just go to Disney.  But until then, I will attempt to make this Holiday To-Do List.  At least I know I can cross one person (okay, dog) off the list!
