Last Christmas, the Zhu Zhu Pet Hamster was the blockbuster gift for kids. This year, I predict the box office hit for kids will be the video game Kinectimals, one of fifteen new Microsoft fully-interactive "sensoring" video games for its new Kinect Xbox 360. Kinectimals
are 20 wild virtual video pets, like tigers, lions and cheetahs, that kids can
play with and even train. Parents will get a kick out of this game too!
Dogs may be in the closet all year long, but Easter gives them an acceptable time to come out of the closet and cross dress.
Bunny rabbit costumes are so popular with dogs because they get to
wear them three times a year - Easter, Halloween, and Christmas.
What's the matter? You never heard of the Christmas Bunny?
With Christmas commercialism in mind, it
shouldn't come as much of a surprise to you that pet lovers and even
their pets are "special" during the eight days of Hanukkah. This year, the array of cat and dog menorahs abound, and I even found some cat and dog Hanukkah dreidels! Here's a bunch of the ones I found engaging....
Did you ever wonder what dog's really want for Christmas? Well, it so happens that I was able to sit down with 12 top dog models and ask them what was on their wish lists this holiday season. And here's what they told me....
My pooch generally sleeps while I drive,
which delights me because if he wasn't sleeping, he'd be back-seat
driving like every other passenger in my car. Problem is, he does get
up and walk around the back of my SUV occasionally, especially when
wild smells whiz by his whiffers. Until now, I never found a safety
belt that would accommodate my dog's movements and still offer plenty of security in case the car in front of me comes to a short stop... (ahem)
A stunningly realistic pig, gilded or polymer coated in hot pink, by a world famous designer, would look smashing on her dark cherry server. She would love it, even be encouraged to shove dollar bills through the cork opening and look forward to saving $10,000....
Have you ever wondered what happens to plucked turkey feathers? For the most part turkey feathers as well as feathers from various other poultry are simply incinerated, made in to low -grade animal feedstock or thrown away only to end up in a landfill. Fortunately, several scientists are working hard to develop new eco-friendly ways to recycle these feathers for future use.
I like to buy funny pet wall calendars as Christmas gifts for my pet lover friends because, even if they receive other calendar gifts, there is always a space on the wall for one more -- especially if it's funny and about their species of pet. I found some really hilarious dog, cat, rabbit, ginea pig, ferret, and tea cup pig calendars for 2010; maybe you will find just the right ones for your friends (or yourself!) among them.
