I found some interesting statistics on how pet owners celebrate Christmas with their pets:
- 54% of pets have a Christmas stocking
- 34% have a special pet-safe advent calendar
- 29% will receive a Christmas card
- 16% of owners polled have their pets pictured on their Christmas cards
I have never heard of a pet-safe advent calendar, have you? I’m also kind of amazed that almost 30% of people said that their pet received a Christmas card, really? Who is it from, the Vet or the doggie down the street? Mushu has given Valentine’s to her neighborhood friends so I guess it isn’t as crazy as it sounds.
Christmas is a good time to introduce a new toy, bed or maybe even a new treat. Mushu got an early gift when the Nutro Moist-N-Chewy Bites arrived the other day. These treats are 100% natural but they are not gluten free so these will be extra special, occasional treats for Mushu.
Mushu wasn’t sure about these treats at first, they have a gummy texture. She actually spit the first one out 3 times before she ate it. Once she ate it, she was following me around the house begging for more. Just luck us, sometimes we need to give something new a fair try because we might just like it!
