Gifts of Gilligan: A Wienerful Christmas!

Christmas has come!

Gilligan awoke in style with a special Santa suit he received as an early gift for Christmas Eve! Fans have been asking to see him in a hat, so please enjoy the photo above!

It turned out to be not a white Christmas, but rather, an inexplicably bright and nice-outside Christmas! Odd, but nice!

As the morning continued, Gilligan sat patiently in his bed, awaiting the commotion of the family’s preparations at the Christmas tree to die down, and for the signal that it was time to gather around the tree.

As his first Christmas with his new forever family, this day was already quite special. Mama and Papa have been adding to this by hyping up all the presents and special time together.

Before we launch into a rundown of the gifts Gilligan received (and gave!) for Christmas, we’ll note that Gilligan really seemed to enjoy the time with family most of all. For all the family’s participation in the commercial ritual of gift-swapping, the best part was the extra attention, extra friends, and extra snuggles.

Let’s see Gilligan’s gifts!*

*We’ll be sharing more information about select items in upcoming product review posts!

1. Bones!

The first doggie gift was a pair of bones given to Gilligan and Mitzie, one for each of them! This was perfect, given their bone history…

Gilligan has gotten into trouble in the past for stealing his cousin Mitzie’s bones when she is not looking. Over time, the two have developed an unspoken “no right of ownership” rule about bones, which basically means that Mitzie has returned the favor, and neither of them really minds. Ironically, Gilligan decided to make amends by giving Mitzie two rawhide bones, which meant not one, not two, but four bones in the mix on Christmas day!

With so many bones going around, Weens and Mitzie rotated and played with all of them, true to their newly developed rules of bone etiquette.

The bones kept Gilligan and his cousin Mitzie busy for quite some time. In fact, a large majority of the human gifts were exchanged with the pups enjoying these bones together.

Still, after a while (a pretty long while, in fact), Gilly did start to get tired of the bones, and he was ready to see what Santa had in store!

2. Camouflage

A wonderful camo vest was next on the list. We’ve explored how much he loves his camo, and will be sure to bring you future posts once he has a chance to sport it more naturally.

“Those gifts were nice, but when are they going to open my other gifts? I heard it is better to give, and so far that’s been true with the bones I gave!”
3. Shirts for Mama

Now Mama can show her furiends how proud she is to be a Wiener Dog Mom, AND make fabulous puns that also highlight her love of a good glass of red wine. 🙂

4. Football Gear

Papa got Gilligan this fantastic football toy and “Go Long!” shirt to match! The toy was a huge hit!

5. Snuggle Bag

This baby is sweet, and will definitely require its own review! For now, suffice it to say that Weens has got a brand new bag, baby!

6. Laser Pet Toy

Pups tend to go nuts over the laser toy. Let’s see what Gilly thinks of it once he’s had a chance to try it out. We’ll have to make sure he doesn’t get it shone right in the eye, but otherwise this looks like it could be… well, probably hit or miss. We shall see…

  1. Giving IS better than receiving, Gilligan!! I particularly like the pawsome Indoxicated-Shirt you got your mommy…after a long day of K9s and coffee, I like to end my days with K9s and wine 😉
    P.S. I’m sure you’ll love the laser toy ~ our boy Buzz goes crazy over it!!

    1. I know how that goes, Dawgs. Was definitely falling behind during the holidays and still continuing to lag a bit with all the to-do. Hope you enjoy a great New Year’s Eve celebration! *wags*
