christmas dog treats

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I mentioned that we were shopping for puppy treats? I wasn't kidding. We wrap them up and everything. Don't ask me how the dogs deal with the ribbon, what with them lacking opposable thumbs and all.

I thought that it would be really cute (and let's be honest, less work on my part) to put all the Christmas dog treats in a translucent pet food container. That way, you can kind of see what's inside and the treats actually become part of the appeal of the wrapping job. And it's not like the dogs will peek.

What we ultimately ended up including in the package are the basics of what we think any new puppy owner would really need: some treats, some balls to chase after, and a chew toy to gnaw on. Hati and Loki go through all of these items like there's no tomorrow. Of course, not everyone is going to have two great danes to feed so other dogs may not go through QUITE as many snacks…

I cut out some cute little dog bones from white foam and stuck those onto the front along with some white sticker letters to indicate that the package is for the dogs. In case there's any confusion about that. This was actually one of the simplest packages to wrap this season, considering that I was initially stumped over the concept of packaging up dog treats. I mean, it doesn't quite seem right to put wrapping paper on dog food, does it? That's sort of like gift-wrapping a package of candy bars. Come to think of it, though, I actually have done that before.
