This Year I’m All About Giving “Experiences”

December 21, 2011 10:26 am

Just a short note today, was thinking as I was shopping around the stores if I could remember last years Christmas gifts.. short answer “Not Really”. But I remember every show that I’ve gone to over the past few years, and the nice dinners, and all the vacations and such.. truthfully, I remember the experiences more so than the gifts.

So this year, I’m going to try to provide more ‘experiences’ with my gift-giving moreso than just material objects.. so I better do some motorhome repair on the ole RV, as we're going camping this summer with the hounds and all!!

Merry Christmas!! ha ha ha.

US Pet Frenzy Infographic

I do enjoy the odd infographic which usually displays some astonishing numbers  and statistics on any given subject, and when I read the one from FrugalDad.com (one of my favorite reads), I just had to share.

It sort of makes me think that this year, I should NOT buy gifts for my hounds, and in lieu of that, make a donation to the local shelters instead. I mean, people going out and buying diamond eternity bands and other things for their pets is pretty ridiculous when a fraction of that cost could save thousands of animals.

Survey Says…Santa loves Pooches more than Kitties

December 10, 2010 10:04 pm

Accourding to a survey conducted by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications, 57% of Dog owners will purchase Christmas presents for their pets this year (conversely, only 48% of Cat owners will purchase gifts).

Interestingly enough, the percentages of pet-owners giving gifts to their pets has increased over the last two years over 10%...who says that the economy is tough when it comes to offering a loving gift for your pets.
I am a firm believer that pet presents does not necessarily be tangible, but perhaps spending a little more love and attention their way.  They are often forgotten about on their birthdays, so send some extra love their way on the 25th.

Of course, don't forget that another option this Christmas, and that giving a gift that is sure to make all animals smile (no, its not another bathrobe, or a mens ties), but it will make you feel warm inside: The Gift Of Life!  Not all pets are as lucky as ours, and many animals will spend the holidays trying to survive on the cold streets.

Why not send a gift donation and help save a homeless animal's life instead?

Visit heavenlycreatures.ca and review their terrific program to support animals during this time.

So now that Halloween is over and we've put away the costumes of pirates, Freddy Krueger and men wearing prom dresses - it's time to start thinking about the next big holiday... Christmas!!

Santa will be there from noon to 8 pm on Dec. 4 and  Dec 5.

We will also be accepting donations at this time - this Christmas, we are most in need of wet cat food and cat litter. Though perhaps a 'less glamorous' donation, this is one of our greatest needs.

Christmas Is Coming!

So Halloween is over.. it's November 5th and right around the corner it's going to be December and with that, comes all the gift-wrapping, busy malls, photo holiday cards, and let's not forget the great food that we're going to be eating!

My question to you now is, are you ready? Wouldn't you love to be done early and spend the great days leading up to Christmas in your nice warm home surrounded by your pets and loved ones? I know I would, in fact if I remember well it was something that I was going to try to do last year but never got around to it - it was just too difficult unfortunately. So this year, I'm going to try it again.. hell maybe practice makes perfect.
