Harley and Charlie love this time of year. As you might imagine, the cooling temps are a welcome sign for a couple of snow-loving, Golden Retrievers!

Beyond the cooler temperatures, Harley knows that just around the corner is the holiday season! For Harley, this means lots of visitors to the house, tasty foods, and even a visit from Santa Paws!! It also means that he has a lot of work to do – after all, the season is about more than just oneself!

Getting a Jump on their Holiday Shopping

Since Charlie is still learning the in’s and out’s of the holidays, Harley decided it was time to take him along on a special shopping trip to PetSmart. They were going to pick out some special gifts for all of their doggy (and kitty) friends. Charlie would soon learn the real meaning of the season-tis better to give than receive!

Shopping List

The boys scoured the aisles – determined to find just the perfect gifts for all the doggies on their list.

Charlie, I will not pull you around PetSmart like a reindeer!

While Harley had to remind Charlie once or twice why they were here, he did a pretty good job keeping focused on the task at hand for a wigglebutt puppy.

Just when they were starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by all the options, there it was…a beautiful holiday themed display!

The Search Was Over!

Knowing right away that these would make for the perfect dog stocking stuffers, they filled up a basket with as much as it would hold! All of their doggy friends were going to love these tasty snacks!

Harley and Charlie knew their friends wouldn’t mind if they opened a bag for a quick sample. Just a little qulality control, right?
