"My Pet World: Pets don't care how much you spend on their gifts

Q. Santa has always loved our dogs, but this year we can barely afford to leave out cookies for Santa. My husband has been out of work and I'm on disability. Do you think our dogs will care if we're opening a few gifts (from friends and relatives) but there's nothing for them? Do we need to buy Christmas presents for our dogs?

A I think you do. I don't know what you've given your pups in the past, but I also know your dogs won't recall, 'Last year, I got this really nifty toy.' And most certainly, they won't be aware of how much you spend. Of course, the wonderful thing about dogs is that even if they knew how much you spent — they wouldn't care. They simply enjoy being part of the fun.
Wait until you see a coupon for some treats, a brand you might buy your dogs anyway. Wrap up the treats. You'll feel good about it, and I know your dogs will love scarfing down a gift that may have cost under $2. I wish you and your family — and many families — a better 2010."
