If so, who actually wraps them up !! ? )x(

We have never given pressies to any of our animals, not really sure why.
Teddy does have a present that is wrapped up under the tree from Chloe our Grandaughter this year.

I should say I never have, but have on occasion brought the Cats a more expensive food treat !!

Be interesting to see a load of Chickens taking the paper off :-D :-D

I do know some who give presents though. Just interested

For my daughters late dog, he knew it was a special day when people turned up and he didn't like it !!

actually, I used to buy a new toy for the dog on Christmas when she was younger LOL She preferred soft toys to suck, lick, slobber and chew and always brought the mankiest for me to play with her (usually tug of war) They were like her babies and would gather them round her in her bed .... so a new toy was a distraction so I could get rid of the worst ones. New toys started off with a squeak but mysteriously .ang. stopped working after the deed was done and forgotten

When we had a Rough Collie and two shelties, we bought them a toy each for Christmas. The Rough Collie had a tugger, both no longer with us. The shelties had a snowman and a Father Christmas - can't remember which sheltie had which.

Both these girls are no longer with us, but our previous sheltie and our current one both rested their heads on Father Christmas and Snowman. Occasionally Angel will drag one one of them into the hallway. They must be almost twenty years old, and Father Christmas only has one arm.

Of course! Our 2 dogs get a wrapped toy each, they get very excited about it & seem to enjoy tearing it open & spending time playing with it. Sometimes Toffee gets so excited she starts opening our present too! When we've finished unwrapping they get to play with the paper too, which is just as fun as their toys!
The chickens treat is left over veg the next morning!

This will be our first Christmas with Toby so of course he's got presents )like( He's got a squeaky reindeer and a Christmas dinner stocking which I have lovingly wrapped for him. He also has a present from my niece and nephew and one from the rescue centre that we had him from which I thought was lovely. In fact he's got more presents than me and my hubbie but together {rofwl} The girls get a couple of sprout sticks, in fact they'll be on their third by Christmas day as they've already decimated two >ch<

My mum has bought a couple for our dogs, I'm taking that as a sign that she grown to like them {rofwl}
I haven't bought then pressies but I did make a load of dog biscuits last night which I think they'll be happy enough with!
