I’ve been busy getting ready for Christmas now for a couple weeks, but I’ve been hesitant to go out Christmas shopping until I found out if I had made the Santa Paws Nice List or not. I posted my letter to Santa Paws last Monday. I hate to see things I really want if I ended up on the Naughty List. If you follow me on Facebook, you know I got my letter from Santa Paws on Friday! What a relief for the weekend!
I was pretty sure I would make it, but a dog never knows for sure. The big question was really Bailie. She has been awfully naughty in 2014, but then again she is still pretty young. We were all relieved, especially Bailie, when she got her letter. Katie making the Nice List was no surprise at all!
Now that my nerves have calmed I was ready to head out to PetCo and do some Christmas shopping with Mom. Mostly we were looking for stuff for Bailie. I found these pretty beds. They look like they would be comfy too. We both like beds with sides so we can curl up and snooze, kind of like cats do.
I was all over these jumbo rawhides, but Mom said we aren’t getting rawhides since they don’t break down in our tummies. Oh well, a dog can still dream.
Look at these cute Santa suits! I wonder if I could get cat bro Bert to wear one? They look pretty small, so I bet they would fit a cat like him.
There was a nice selection of stuffies I think Bailie would like. She seems to like almost any stuffie.
Finally we got to the Kongs. I really want my own Kong in size large. It looks like they only come in red. I was hoping they had all kinds of fun colors, but I guess not. Hopefully Santa will bring me one.
By far the best thing I found in the store was this table with all kinds of yummy treats on it! I want one of each and I would love to sample some immediately. No Mom, I’m not going to get down, I’m very busy sniffing!
One last reminder! Don’t forget to buy some cans of Merrick wet food for your pups. This November and December for each can of Merrick food purchased at PETCO, a meal will be donated to a rescue animal waiting for their forever home. I’m getting some Merrick Grain Free Turducken for my sisters and I to enjoy on Christmas. Simply look for the holiday food displays at your local PETCO store! The meals will be donated to one of the three wonderful shelters below:

Best wishes Molly
I thought I would be too,but it is always good to have it in writing.

No surprise that you all made the nice list. 🙂
I’m happy we all made it. Bailie was really questionable.
Mom did her shopping this weekend. But we still have to do ours!! Hopefully Mom will take us out this week. You look great in the photos Emma!! your doodle friend Dash
Hope you all get to go shopping. I love shopping!
Oz the Terrier says
Emma, how could you even wonder if you would make it onto the Nice List?!? I knew you would be on the Nice List…of course, I was hesitant about Bailie, like you but she is young and so her naughtiness is really not that bad. I love all the stuff at Petco…and GREAT reminder for everyone to buy some canned Merrick at Petco so they will donate a can to the shelter! Every dog deserves a delicious holiday meal!
We have our cans for Christmas. PetCo is always fun and they have such great stuff. My nose goes into overdrive there!
Reilly & Denny says
we knew you made it on the list – all us doggies do 🙂
I just wanted to make sure. One never knows.
SlimDoggy (@MySlimDoggy) says
Congrats on making the Nice list…Bailie sure lucked out didn’t she – must be all the good nose work she’s done put her over the top!
I think it is her huggles and sweetness that make up for the naughty behavior.
Dogs N Pawz says
Christmas shopping looks fun! Mommy hasn’t started yet. Maybe when she does, one of us will get to go with her. She’s a little behind this year!
I love to go shopping. Sniffing up and down all the aisles is wonderful!
We haven’t known you very long, but we knew you would make the nice list. Christmas Shopping a Petco looks like fun. Wonder what they would do if we came in on leashes. Woooohoooo,,,,
Have a great day.,
hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles
I should try taking my cat bro Bert with me. He is more like a dog and loves going places!
Ellen Shedlarz says
No surprise that you are on the nice list. You make so many people happy!
Mom says I can be a real stinker too, but overall, I’m a nice girl.
Two French Bulldogs says
Looks like you found some nice holiday outfits
Lily & Edward
I think they would fit my cats nicely.
I’m so glad you guys made the nice list. What a fun shopping trip you had too. Did you see the photos on my facebook page yesterday of the GBGV we met? The owner was so surprised I knew what breed the dog was. She was very cute.
It is plain amazing you actually saw a GBGV in person! Good job impressing the owner…did you tell them to check me out? I love their hats.
Jenna,Mark “HuskyCrazed” Drady says
Wow! I sure hope santa bring you what you asked for!!!! I wish Kongs came in fun colors too, but I have only ever seen red and black around here 🙁
SO cool you all got letters from Santa!!! Woohooooooo!
ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!
Mom emailed Kong and suggested they come out with fun colors. They said they would send it on to their development department.
What a pawesome post! So festive and so many things for doggies to love!! So happy you all made the NICE list! You are always on OUR “Nice” list! Barks and licks and love, Dakota
Awww…thanks, guys! I had a fun shopping trip and we are all so excited for Santa now.
Great you are on the nice list (Bert too?). I agree for the bones, they are super tasty but my mom had to put her arm into my mouth once to remove a part of that raw hide… but such a kong is a great gift, you can fill it with ice cream or mice or birds!
Bert already knows it will be another year of coal for him but he doesn’t seem to care. We always loved rawhides, but we have much less tummy troubles since we quit having them. Kongs are good and fun!
Will and Eko says
Never a doubt about Emma or Katie. I have to say I was a bit worried about Bailie, but not even Santa can resist a cute pup I guess.
I think her sweet side makes up for all the “incidents”.
Groovy Goldendoodles says
Turducken sounds doodle*licious! Since our Thanksgiving turkey was fried this year Harley didn’t get a chance to taste it. PAWhaps I will stop in at PetCo and grab a can and surprise him this Christmas – plus we love to help where we can with rescue organizations. Thanks for taking us along on your shopping trip.
We are excited for Turducken too! Good stuff I’m sure. It’s always nice to buy for yourself and give to others at the same time.
Sparkle the PBGV says
PETCO is my favorite store and I get to go there on the 23rd to see Juanita to get beautifully groomed. I hope I can shop when I look beautiful. We all love the Thanksgiving dinner. XOXO Sparkle the PBGV
I used to get my ear hair pulled there, but it made me scared of the store and they don’t strip coats, so I go to a real nice place now and I’m no longer scared of PetCo.
Susan C. Willett says
I think cat bro Bert would make a good elf. Or at least an elf, if he isn’t good. BOL!
–Wags (and purrs) from Life with Dogs and Cats.
He would be an excellent bad elf!
Talent Hounds says
How could YOU not be 😉
I do have my naughty side, just don’t show it too much.
Oh Emma, there was never any doubt that you would be on the nice list!
I was thinking that, but one never knows!
Now the question is, did Bert make it on the nice list? I was not surprised you and your sisters are on the nice list, Emma. Bailie may be naughty at times, but she really is a good girl when you think about it.
Bailie has a good heart, but her brain gets her in trouble now and then. Bert on the other hand is just plain naughty no matter what.
That sure looked like some fun shopping! And I’m surprised about Bailie making the Nice List, I am not so sure if I’m going to or not, we’ll see. Love Dolly
I love a good shopping trip. We were a bit surprised Bailie made the nice list too, but she does have a good heart.
Pooch Smooches says
I had no doubt you and Katie would be on the nice list! Phew about Bailie! Thanks for the info on the Merrick wet food!
Yep, get that wet food, it is a win win situation!
Jan K says
Congratulations to all of you girls on making the nice list (we are not surprised of course)!! Shopping looks like it was a lot of fun!
I think Bailie barely made it, but we are happy for her that she did.
Whitley Westie says
Good job on makin da nice list!
We are three happy girls!
Tenacious Little Terrier says
Glad you guys made the nice list! Looks like you’re going to have a great Christmas haul.
Paws crossed that Santa’s sleigh is full for us…and you too…
M. K. Clinton says
Awww, we never had a doubt about any of you girls! Santa Paws always forgives puppies. ♥ Pierre and I are getting very worried, because we haven’t received an official Santa Paws letter. XXOO Bentley
Oh you guys will make the list for sure. Being farther north, we probably got our letters sooner…closer to the North Pole you know.
What a fun shopping trip, especially when you know that you and your siblings are on the nice list!!
Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo
It is nice having that waiting and wondering over with!
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
What a great shopping adventure, I hope you got lots of cool stuff. You gals are always nice!
We are hoping for a sleigh full! Just over a week and we will find out what we get!
Maria Sadowski says
You all made the nice list? Good going! I was concerned about Bailie since stuff seems to explode around her, but I think Santa Paws is pretty forgiving. 🙂 Awesome photos!
Well, Bailie has a really good heart and never means anything in a bad way, so I think they let her slide by for this year.
Looks like Petco has a lot of great toys and treats for Christmas. Aspen loves to go with us to Petco, everyone loved him and he gets lots of attention:)
I bet people just love him! We have a Newfie in our nose work class these days and he is so funny!
I love going shopping with the human!
Shopping is lots of fun!
