The TAILS website, Facebook, and Twitter communities are packed with current events, contests, and info you need to know to live a happy and healthy life with your pets. We post and update daily, so be sure to check in so you don’t miss out on all the fun!
Here is just a bit of what you had to say:
The dogs always get their human parents and brothers gifts. Last year they got the boys Bagel Bites, and Mom and Dad got cookies. All wrapped beautifully too! Santa brought them Greenies.
Getting them all dressed up for the holiday photo and sending cards to the family. I get them each a gift to open, and I put it under the tree. If I am hosting the party, they are part of the celebration, and if we have to travel, they come with us.
Aron, our dog, always gets presents since she is one of our kids. We get her dressed up in a latke shirt for Hanukkah.
My dogs and guinea pig each have their own stockings that are filled with goodies. They get a special holiday supper, are dressed up and included in the family photo that is sent out with the cards. The dogs also go to a pet blessing.
Our Christmas cards
always feature our Scottie in Christmas attire or other festive costumes. It just wouldn’t be Christmas without Duffy!
Our cat Keysha just likes to sit on the edge of the action and observe. Every once in a while she’ll come down and sniff at something. Once she’s had her breakfast, she likes to sleep!
When we eat dinner, our Pug has her own specially made dinner. The pumpkin pie we all have together but she just gets the raw pumpkin … After all is cleaned up we take a walk, watch a Christmas movie, and go to bed.
We do a Christmas morning with the dogs! Where they have gifts wrapped and we sit around and watch them have fun tearing the paper off to see if it is a toy or a bone! I always make sure my husband and my child get a gift from the dogs!

We start with Thanksgiving. All four dogs and two cats get their own plated mini-feast after we have our dinner. Then at Christmas they each have their own stockings, a holiday collar, and if I can manage to get a card out for the holidays they are on it.
