  1. My dog Lucy will get a nice "Big Mean Kitty" stuffed animal and my cat Jax will get one of those fountain water bowls. He doesn't like his still water. I'm hoping he'll prefer the moving water. Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Our dog Colin is getting some chew toys. I would love to win because I sewed up three stockings (one for me, my husband, and our son) and I'm a little burned out at the moment, so I'm not sure if Colin will get one in time for Christmas. Thanks!

  5. This is so funny! I was just telling my husband that my Thatcher needs a new stocking! She has this generic old crappy one and my Maggie, our older lab, has a fancy pretty dog stocking! This would be SO perfect so Thatcher doesn't get the shaft this time! LOL! We usually get them each one toy and then fill their stockings with popcorn or another fun treat!

  11. I have two dogs: Milo and Rosie. Both are completely spoiled. They are, at least, getting treats for Christmas. I've asked their grandparents (my parents) to splurge on some toys. Regardless, they'll get lots of love!

  14. How cute!!! The only purchase we have made so far is a new toy for Kiki (which may last until New Year's if we're lucky) The others don't care much about toys anymore...preferring T-R-E-A-T-S!!! I do also have 2 grandoggies and 2 grankitties. The dogs will be getting a toy and treat and the kitties will be getting treats and catnip toys!

  15. My sister has a dog named Dubbs, and I'm going to get him a new toy for Christmas

  16. Our dog's name is Shera. She is really my mom's dog, but we got her when I was still living at home, so she's my dog too. She always gets toys for christmas, and loves to rip off the wrapping paper.

  17. We have 2 fox terriers (Piper and Sooty) and 2 cats (Moose and Kitty) - I'm not sure just what they'll be getting yet, but they won't be missed out this Christmas...it's sure to be edible that's for sure!

  18. our four kitties (tyler, charlie, sophie and kady) will be getting some new catnip mice and bags of treats. cute stocking!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Scout is getting treats and fancy canned food. Yum! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  20. My dog Casey will probably be getting a few toys and some rawhide bones.. he loves them but we don't buy them enough for him!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hannah the dog is getting a fabric gingerbread house to hide treats in, which she must then work hard to remove! keeps her out of trouble when I am at work.
    For your Murphy I suggest needle-felted "mice". But something fun in the middle like catnip or dog hair or something he likes to smell, then wrap felt around. Takes very little time and they LOVE to bat them around and attack them.

  22. No pets allowed. We rent. Love the adorable stocking, though. May I still enter for a decorative stocking? That said, "Joy"?

    I'm participating in the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day! I hope you have time to stop over and enter my giveaway at homemakerhoney.com

  27. Great contest, and an adorable stocking!

    My Oswald LOVES to tear up and bunny thump rolls of paper towels. We have to keep them well locked up or he goes gonzo with them.

    So he's going to get a whole roll all to himself this Christmas. :)

    Thanks for entering my giveaway, btw. Happy holidays!

  28. My dog Victor is getting marrow bones for Christmas (and the first one is at our party on Saturday). He loves them and they keep him busy!

    ReplyDelete
  29. My boyfriend's dog, Gabe, will definitely be getting a football and a basketball for Christmas. It takes him under a minute to pop a basketball and then depending on his mood, he will either destroy it completely by tearing it up OR he will want us to play fetch until the wee hours of the night. I just love his excitement when he sees a nice, new, shiny basketball for him to play with.

  43. Oh, Murphy is a cute cat!

    I have 2 cats, Orville and Wilbur, who will be getting visits from the catsitter for Christmas. Not what they'd pick out, but any time I put food in their bowl or toss them a crumpled-up crinkly receipt they act like it's a holiday.

  44. Thanks for visiting my blog and entering my giveaway!

    Well, we actually have 4 pets...a dog and three cats. Our dog's name is Jager...she is a Siberian Husky that is in the red color range. Then we have Crook, Benni, and Smokey (<----he was rescued from a fire when he was barely ready to be adopted). I have been thinking that I need to make socks for the pets. We usually give the dog bones for Christmas and the cats get new collars.

  45. My cat Phoebe will be getting a bag of her favorite Wildside Salmon treats, and I'm making her a new fleece-ribbon-on-a-stick toy to chase. She loves those - tho it usually ends up me running around her in circles, and her laying there batting at the ribbon as it goes by. HEY. :)

  46. My pug's name is Marlene. For Christmas she is receiving some yummy treats!

  49. Awww, what a sweet giveaway!! My doggie is Chewie (Bichon Frise) and if I win I would love to pay you to make a matching one for his sister Bella (Shih Tzu). They are both two and bring so much joy to my life.

    ReplyDelete
  50. My kitty-cat SUNSHINE will get a fishing pole toy. The toy has a fish on the end of it and she enjoys us moving the pole around everywhere, and herself attempting to bite the fish. It is so adorable, but within a week the toy is broken. So maybe I will make that two of the fishing poles, rather than one! Haha! She is not spoiled at all, (chuckle - chuckle!) *I also liked you on facebook!* cthompson4@liberty.edu

  51. Oh, btw, I 'Liked' you on FB and my dogs are getting gourmet dog bones and squeaky toys in their stockings this year. :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Two Black Kitties have already gotten their first present - a new water fountain. That was more for Pixel than Mobius. I didn't want to make them wait as they don't care much about christmas other than attacking the wrapping paper. I also want to get them a bird feeder and hang it just outside one of the windows so that they can watch the birdies.

    Plus, since Mobius stole the sock monster I was working on for a friend and tried to keep it, I may have to make him one of his own. He's a funny boy, that Moe.

  53. arghl, here I am finally, and I'm so sad I have no pet... Just Three daugters and one husband (and this is just far enough for me !)
    I'd love to have a kitten, I would name it Coriolis... And if I was to have a dog, the only one I want is Snoopy !

    ReplyDelete
  54. My dog, Albie, is getting a big floppy plush crocodile for Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Sylvester is getting more catnip for sure (because he is ALL OUT... oh noooo! *grin*), but other than that I haven't gone shopping yet.
    I wouldn't have picked that name on my own, but it stuck: at the pet shelter we were like, "What's the name of the awesome cat that looks like Sylvester?" and they were like, "Sylvester."
    So... *grin*
    Thanks for the opportunity to win! :)

    I serve two cats :-)
    One is called "Puccini"...his Christmas present will be a furry new blanket to lay on the heating.
    The second cat I'm looking after is an old lady called "Madame"...living on the streets and fields. Her Christmas present will be a styrofoam house where she can hide and will be warm and cosy in those cold winter days.

  73. What a great giveaway! We have a 4 yr old dog named Dunlop who is a black lab/whippet that we acquired from the local rescue group. He is best buddies to our 3 yr old son, and helps me by alerting when the doorbell rings, the oven timer goes off, or the phone rings. So he gets quite a bit of scooby snacks throughout the day. Assuming he stays on Santa's good list, he may find a new pillow under the tree....shhhh...(whispering) I think he can read too.....
