Do you give your dog a Christmas present? We do. Our dogs have their own stockings, and they even exchange gifts with my sister and mom’s dogs too. Yep, we are a dog-loving family, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Since my dogs are no longer puppies and not really interested in toys, my go-to […]
