My cats have stockings every year. I put in their favourite treats and some new toys 🙂 But not catnip toys because they’d rip them apart before the morning, LOL!

My cat gets her own stocking every Christmas, and all of our pets growing up had their own stockings. For dogs, things I would put into a stocking:
• Gourmet dog biscuits
• Bully sticks
• A new collar
• New tags
• Small squeekie toy
• Dog “candy” (my parents old dog had this candy she LOVED)
• Pig’s ear or other chewie item
If your dog is small, maybe a little winter sweater!

@PrncssDva: It’s harder to fill a full size stocking for a cat, their toys are pretty small and it’s not like I can get cute little sweaters or a new leash for them. The treats are in a decent size bag though, so that helps to fill it up a bit. I tried making my own treats once and they refused to eat them. Homemade dog biscuits go over very well with friend’s dogs though!

This will be the first year in which my parents and sister will be our guests at our home for Christmas, and as such, I’m anticipating that it will be the first year in which my parents don’t fill stockings for my sister and me. I’m okay with that – we are grown-ups after all – but I like to have stockings hanging over the fireplace! So, I’m going to make those stockings be the cat’s and dog’s stockings. I haven’t bought stocking stuffers for them yet but we have a lot of local pet stores and I’m sure they have tons of options.

I am actually making homemade doggie Christmas cookies this year!!  I am giving them to all of my neighbors (all of our dogs played together until our apartment community changed property managers and became less pet friendly), my pup will get them in his stocking, and my parents’ dogs, brother’s dog, and grandparents’ dog will all get some!

Also… dogs LOVE deer antler.  They are nice and tough so even strong chewers can’t get through them the way they can eat rawhide in 30 minutes flat.

We always buy the wishbone toys for our dog and she loves them. – also put in some raw hides, soft dog food (Caesars something) and some peanut butter treats from the gourmet doggy store. We also get her a new dog bed at christmas. She knows her stocking too, she will sit underneath it when it is hanging on the mantel and just stare at it until I take it down. She digs everything out of it so I buy her one of the cheap dollar store stockings cause she just tears it up, but totally worth the entertainment of watching her.

I forgot, I also get her one of those cheap fleece throws from walmart and throw her old one away.

@PrncssDva: Bully sticks are dried-up bull penises. Dogs love them. They have them at all the pet stores in our neighborhood.

[ETA] Oh yes, I had forgotten all about our dog’s deer antler – I wonder where that went, it must have gotten lost under the couch some months ago. No, deer antlers don’t fall apart like rawhide does, so they are great long-lasting treats for dogs; they just chew and chew.

@PrncssDva: Deer antlers are awesome!  Our lab mix can chew apart anything (eats an entire compressed/condensed rawhide bone in an hour or two) and she’s had an antler for about 3 months and has been able to do very little damage to it.  She just chews and chews and naws and naws and nothing happens to it.  Best toy we’ve ever gotten her!
