For TEN years we have been participating in the Secret Bullie Santa Exchange through Carolina Pet Pantry ! Every year, bulldog families exchange names and purchase gifts for each other. There is also an option to purchase a rescue box and have it sent to a foster bulldog in rescue. Thank you to everyone who purchased a box for our foster dogs. And a big thank you to Courtney for all her hard work in creating these amazing boxes! You truly outdid yourself this year and gave these dogs the best Christmas ever!
Here are our foster dogs opening their gifts.....
what, it just exploded in the car?
Hank (We also put in a couple Skin Soothers that had come in the mail from our supporters. And a Max & Neo holiday collar & leash set that they donated! Hank for sure got the hook up!)
Hermione I was shocked to see so many things in the boxes that Hermione could have! She's on an incredibly strict diet so I assumed she wouldn't get much...she got a few toys, A Bulldogs' World watermelon collar, and 2 bags of Rabbit Ears! (rabbit ears are a great chew to clean the teeth and the fur is a natural dewormer) She also helped herself to a couple toys from the resident dogs' boxes !
LilyMunster (The Bulldog Formerly Known As EggRoll)
Remi was another dog that I assumed wouldn't be able to have anything in the boxes but WOW! Just WOW! Every box had 1-2 bags of Yogurt Drops - literally the ONLY treat she can eat without regurgitating! So I obviously snagged a bag from each of the boxes to make her own very special box. She also got a holiday collar and leash set donated from Max & Neo.
St Nick was supposed to have surgery on opening day. They ultimately decided not to proceed with his surgery due to the amount of discharge that came out of his nose when they intubated him! But they quickly pulled 2 of his rotting teeth before he woke up from sedation. He wasn't up for opening his box that day... His foster parents pulled out a can of food for him to have at dinner that night. But by the next day he was psyched to open his box and he is even chewing on toys now! He still needs a full dental and more extractions, but between removing those 2 teeth, getting him on some good antibiotics, and loading him up with supplements, he's a new man in time for Christmas!
