Unexpected Gifts Are The BEST! Thankful Thursday

Hi and happy New Year every one!

Hope you rang wagged it in, in style!! Wishing every one a pawsome and healthy 2014!

Before I lock the vault on 2013 I have something super special to share with you today and Monday too!

While going about my daily doggy tasks a week or so ago, there was a knock at the door. It was my good buddy nemesis, MR.MAIL PERSON!! He had a special package just for me!

I wasn’t expecting anything so I couldn’t imagine who it could be from, or what it could be. I opened the box and received the surprise of my life!

It seems that Santa conspired with one of my favorite doggy friends, Pepper Pomeranian, from the blog Pepper’s Paws  and they sent me a super cool gift for CHANUKAH!!  I was spinning with delight!

Look at what I got!

 It was a plush Chanukah dog toy from last season’s PetSmart Multipet Plush Chanukah line!

I couldn’t wait to put the bitey on it!

Mom tried to get a good video of me playing with it, but once I realized that once again my privacy was being violated by being  filmed, I wanted no part of it!

THANK YOU PEPPER for this most THOUGHTFUL and DEEPLY APPRECIATED GIFT! You helped to make my holiday extra special! I will think of you every time I play with it!

How to make YOUR Dog Happy This Holiday Season! Enter our Petco Holiday Dog Toy Give-away!!!!

Hi every furry! It’s Dakota! The holidays are right around the corner and starting with my post today, be sure to visit my blog regularly because I have a number of GREAT GIVE-AWAYS lined up!!

I was excited when I was contacted asking if I wanted to feature a couple of toys that are in the Petco Holiday dog toy line for 2013! (If you do not see these toys online, check your local Petco).

Since I am a Sheltie who is of the Jewish persuasion, my Mom asked to review a special Chanukah Dog Toy! (IMPAWTANT NOTE: There isn’t a photo of me playing with it, because I am not permitted to have it until Chanukah begins, which is on THANKSGIVING this year so everyone is calling it THANKSGIVUKKAH)

Look at how cute this is (but I didn’t tell you that, BOL!)
