A Happy Christmas for Your Dog
Christmas for your dog. Have you given it some thought? With all of the hustle and bustle and planning this time of year, we thought you might enjoy some ideas to make Fido’s holiday as special as yours.
If you’re like us, there’s a tradition of making cookies this time of year. The whole kitchen is awhirl with baking goods and different types of ingredients. Together, they yield the yummiest of confections.
And then there’s our pup looking up at us with those begging eyes. They deserve a cookie treat, too! However, people cookies aren’t necessarily good for your dog. In fact, some can be bad for them (e.g., if they contain raisins or nuts).
