Our family added a furry-legged companion this past Fall!  Our new chocolate lab puppy is definitely a member of the family and we are continuing the holiday tradition from my childhood.  Every family member receives a stocking FULL of their favorite items(and a few necessities).  Today I am sharing everything that will be in our puppy’s stocking, come Christmas morning.

The Best Stocking Stuffers for Dogs

 

STOCKING-

Our family is definitely a Scooby Doo Family, as depicted by Emma Marie and my husband’s Halloween costumes, and both kids thought this would fit perfectly for our new addition.  Perhaps in the future we will embroider all of our stockings with our names(yes, even our dog will get her very own) but this year we stayed with our plain knit stockings- just not quite as festive as Scooby.

COLLAR-

Our new collars come locally made here in Arizona.  Indiana is ready for her next size collar as she nears six months old.  Our family picked out a medium and large collar for her to grow into as the new year arrives and I am head-over-heels in love with the custom look.  Definitely a fun addition to her stocking this year!

SAFETY LIGHTS-

Our chocolate lab puppy is rather hard to see at night.  We live near large plots of land that you can let your dogs off the leash and during our nightly walks after dinner it became hard to keep track of exactly where she was.  Now with this set of bike safety lights we can find out just how far from us she is.  Plus on her nightly runs with my husband, both of them can stay safe as they surely will not get tripped up(as easily)!

TREATS-

YES.  What else can make your dog literally JUMP for JOY?!?  Indiana is going to wake up and walk down the stairs just like the kids on Christmas morning to find her very favorite treats stashed in her very own Scooby Doo Stocking.  Her favorite treats are PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX® Beef, which are definitely aiding in the training regimen( sit, stay, fetch) and goodness do they help her teeth as we go through the puppy phase of adding in her new teeth.

Indiana’s FAVORITE Treats

The new addition that I know she will go nuts over are PEDIGREE® MarroBone™!  Moving toward these bite-sized treats for training will be easier I think for us to hide the treats in our hands, especially the kids.  Then we can use the PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX® for helping keep her smile healthy!

On our weekly trip to Walmart, we stocked up on these two sweet treats for our new puppy!  The kids are definitely going to love seeing that our beloved dog isn’t left out of the holiday magic.  Growing up with dogs and cats, my mother always made sure they had their own treat on Christmas morning which was fun to see just how much joy that brought them.  Kindness matters.

Kindness with animals helps show your little ones just how important it is to take care of others.  AND just how fabulous it is to make their day special too.  I will never forget seeing our chocolate lab, Sadie, with this GIANT treat in front of our Christmas tree-she was literally beside herself with pure joy and disbelief.

Puppy's First Christmas

Our puppy came to us abruptly from a farm that couldn’t care for her and a year earlier than we had planned.  But something I am most sure of is that our lives are better because she is in them.  Our kids are learning to love and care for a creature that loves them right back.

Our house may be harrier, but our hearts are whole.  Watching my two little ones with her just reaffirms that this was meant to be.  That our crazy worlds collided on purpose and well, she is truly part of the family now.

I am so excited to watch everyone race down the stairs on Christmas morning!  Holiday traditions make life just that much more magical!
