Pets’ Christmas Lists

A Fancy Leash That Everyone Will Admire Would Be Nice for One Dog

Cambria (older bunny): I would like the window open on some days so I can smell the fresh air. I would like to go to the garden in the middle of the day when it is warm.

Reiley (horse): I would like a few round chewy horse cookies every day. I would like Mom to have the massage therapist come out and massage me. My body could use it.

Carmello (American Eskimo dog): This year I got the most perfect home so I feel I already got what I wanted. I would like more time playing with dogs and a new leash. I want a fancy one everyone looks at.

Chloe (cat): I would like a doughnut-shaped bed so I am warm on all sides and I can pretend I am hiding. I would the bed placed behind the couch.

Dante (dog): Sometimes I think I would like another dog in the house so I can train a puppy. I would like everything I lie on washed so everything smells fresh. I love it when all my bedding is washed.

Izzy (cat): I would like my mom to read me fantasy stories. I like to go to faraway places in my mind.

Seamore (blue and gold parrot): I would like a huge bath of water to play in. I would also like peanuts and pizza.

Ava (Chihuahua): I would like to go with my people on vacation instead of staying in the kennel and I would like something to come down from outer space and make me even smarter than I am now.

Honey (yellow Labrador retriever): I would like it if my pain would go away and if I could walk slower at the beach but stay for just as long.

Lilly (filly): I would like to run free around the farm. I would like to have more playmates and I would like to be able to understand everything my person says. I understand a lot but I don’t understand everything. I think I am going to learn how to go in the big machine that moves then maybe I will understand more (trailer).

Ziggy (iquana): I get a lot more attention then I used to get and I am feeling much better. I think people should know that iguanas need fresh air, a big pool of water, fresh greens, bugs, a lot of exercise, and a warm place to sleep. We also like it if it is dark at night.
