I'm not in charge, but I think the rules were that you had to be signed up before July in order to play...

Dog's Name: Zander
Dog's Breed: FluffyButt Husky Thing
Clothing/Collar Size: ...I don't know. I want to say 16-22'', and I think he last measured 25'' behind the elbows. 70lbs. I'll recheck later. Basically, medium or large in just about everything. I prefer large, just because they are built for bigger dogs.
Favourite Treat: He loves all food!
Favourite Toy: He prefers toys without stuffing and that squeak(like Skineez or whatever they are called). I've been wanting to try puzzle toys or Kongs on him.
Treats they cannot have: Nothing with Chicken, corn, wheat, soy or OATS! Above all else, NO OATS or any variation of them including oat flour and oatmeal. Or else I will be cleaning up diarrhea until Kingdom Come.
Toys they won't use: Anything with a lot of stuffing in it. He isn't into balls, either.
Anything else!: His colors are red and/or black/silver/gray. Oh, and he'll swallow anything under 8 inches whole. So. Idiot proof may be necessary. Hand-me-down grooming tools are always welcome, too.
Just wanted to add the "No China" treats. I didn't think of that before other people put it.

Also, I did check his collar. It's 20'', so 16-20'' is fine, because his could stand to be an inch or two shorter.

I'm about to talk way too much, I'm afraid. :lol-sign:


Dog's Name: Morgan (male)
Dog's Breed: Lab Mix
Clothing/Collar Size: Neck size is ~16". Weighs about 48lbs, is ~23" tall at the shoulder, and ~25" long from base-of-neck to base-of-tail.
Favourite Treat: Salmon jerky/dehydrated treats. Really, though, he likes anything edible. And sometimes things that aren't. :eek:
Favourite Toy: He likes toys!
Treats they cannot have: n/a
Toys they won't use: Complex puzzle toys (ie: any with sliders or caps to move around)
Anything else!: He's a little short on tug toys right now. Squeakies are LOVE. Keep in mind that I make collars so he really, really doesn't "need" any. LOL! (That said, I'm not outright discouraging collars… just saying. ;)) While he's not fond of complex puzzle toys, he does enjoy things like Egg Babies or those that he can roll around to dispense treats/kibble.
Oh, and he's the "big brother". We have fun with that. :p


*** There is no obligation whatsoever to Secret Santa for the other animals, because I realize they are somewhat... complicated. :rofl1: At the same time, I know some folks like to know the whole picture. ;) ***


Cats: Whitacre & Ticheli (males)
Favourite Treat: Salmon jerky/dehydrated dog treats (same as Morgan)
Favourite Toys: Small stuffies (small enough to carry), "flirt pole" style chase toys
Treats/toys they cannot have: NO CATNIP!!! (Info on this below.)
Anything else!: We have sugar gliders and catnip is toxic to them. A lot of cat toys are treated with catnip, even if the label doesn't mention it. For this reason, we generally stick to small dog toys, ferret toys, homemade toys, or creatively repurposed household items for the cats.
Also, Ticheli's brains will fall out (with joy) if he sees anything with feathers. It's an unhealthy addiction. LOL

Sugar Gliders: Teller, Elphaba, Fiyero, Glinda (two males, two females)
Treats: n/a
Toy restrictions: NO zinc metal parts (nickel is safe). NO jingle bells (open bells are fine). Fabric toys must be FLEECE ONLY. Plastic bird toys and sturdy perch ropes are okay (please no textured perches).
Anything else!: I don't mean to scare my Secret Santa off, but we are picky... well, semi-paranoid when it comes to suggie stuff. :eek: The truth is, also, that they are spoiled rotten and have no need for anything. LOL! Long story short, nobody's feelings will be hurt if they are skipped.

Snakes (8 Cornsnakes, 1 Mexican Black Kingsnake)
Um… yeah, they really don't need anything. LOL! Nevermind them.

Dog's Name: Rosey
Dog's Breed: German Shepherd/Border Collie/Terrier of some kind
Clothing/Collar Size: I usually buy like, extra large at PetSmart. or the biggest I can find, for clothing. She's not a huge fan of clothing, though. Anything that goes around her neck she LOVES (collars, bandanas, whatever), about 16" is the length needed for collars. She's about 21/22" at the shoulders, and about 42lbs
Favourite Treat: She really loves simple freeze-dried or dehydrated treats.. cheese.. meat.. whatever. She goes absolutely CRAZY and loses her brains for anything buffalo :p
Favourite Toy: Anything stuffed that squeaks. Especially if there is more than one squeaker. Also, those puzzle toys like the squirrel in a tree, eggies, etc
Treats they cannot have: Prefer nothing heavy on grains. She will not chew on bones or antlers or anything hard -- she will be 16 in a week.
Toys they won't use: Ropes or balls.
Anything else!: She's really super easy to please, and would seriously love anything you send :) Have fun with it, don't worry too much! She is my girly girl, so the girlier the better for collars or bandanas or clothes
I'm just gonna redo this so it makes more sense, and some things I forgot :lol-sign:

Dog's Name: Rosey
Dog's Breed: BC/GSD mix
Clothing/Collar Size: She's about 16" collar size, and generally nothing more than 1 1/4". She loves bandanas or things that can go around her neck/make her "pretty".
Favourite Treat: Peanut butter, cheese, buffalo or duck treats are her favourites!
Favourite Toy: Anything stuffed with squeakers, the more squeakers the better.
Treats they cannot have: We tend to keep it to made in Canada or US (but if you are elsewhere and trust a certain company from there, we'll definitely understand and love treats from them!). A little grain is okay, but the less the better. Lamb upsets her tummy, so we try to stay away from that. Please keep in mind that she's 16, so anything that needs a lot of chewing, she isn't really interested in.
Toys they won't use: Balls, tugs (unless it's a stuffed tug toy, then she'll love it), nylabones, kongs, food dispensing toys...
Anything else!: Whilst she's getting older, Rosey finds the nights get a little chilly. She enjoys being covered up by a warm blanket.

Really, she's quite picky, so I'm sorry to whoever gets us! Have fun with it and don't fret -- we'll love whatever we get! It really is the thought that counts for us :)


Please don't feel obligated to buy the ferrets anything, but I'm going to post about them so the info is out there!
Name: Renegade (male), Harley (female), Ella (female)
Favourite Treat: Harley will only eat bandits ferret treats. Her favourite are the banana ones, but she likes all the flavours. Renegade loves dehydrated meat you can buy for cats/dogs... chicken, duck, beef, whatever. Ella will pretty well eat anything and everything.
Favourite Toy: Harley loves flip flops and rubber duckies, and any rubber toy she could carry. Renegade... well, you know when you get new shoes, and some come with an extra pair of shoelaces, in a ziploc bag? He loves those shoe laces. :rofl1: Both Ella and Ren love to play with teasers of any kind, though! Ella loves little toys that shake (like baby teething rattlers) that she can pick up and "kill". As well as hanging baby toys she can pounce and they'll jingle or otherwise make noise.
Treats they cannot have: If you do happen to send Bandits treats... please don't go overboard. They're really crap for them, and whilst I do let Harley have them because they're the only treats she'll eat, I try to limit their intake. Like, even just a bag would be plenty. Otherwise, we try to stay grain-free for them, as well.
Toys they won't use: Ella will find a use for any toy. Renegade will then steal the toy because Ella has it. Harley won't care :p
Anything else!:

Dog's Name: Cali
Dog's Breed: Rottweiler
Clothing/Collar Size: Collar size depends on the type of collar. If it's a snap/buckle collar her neck size is 19". If it's something that needs to slip over her head it's 24-25". Yes, she has a big noggin'! She doesn't wear clothing, other than a cooling jacket.
Favourite Treat: She isn't picky, but her favorites are things she doesn't get all the time - liver, salmon, duck, etc. However, she is a lover of all things cheese and fruit! She also loves pig snooters, bully sticks, beef casings, tracheas, dehydrated duck feet, and rabbit ears.
Favourite Toy: Puzzle toys and tugs are her favorite, but she also enjoys Nylabones. Please no puzzle toys with loose pieces that can completely fit in her mouth. She has a tug a jug, kong wobbler, buster cube and monster mouth.
Treats they cannot have: Anything junky, hooves, antlers, pig ears.
Toys they won't use: Latex
Anything else!: Please do not buy anything round as it can be a danger due to the shape of her mouth, also, if you are unsure on size for toys please go up a size.

Dog's Name: Charlie
Dog's Breed: Dachshund
Clothing/Collar Size: He doesn't wear clothes, but his neck size is 10".
Favourite Treat: Same as above.
Favourite Toy: Nylabones or anything he can chew on!
Treats they cannot have: Same as above!
Toys they won't use: Latex, or really hard toys.

Dog's Name: Brawt
Dog's Breed: Dachshund
Clothing/Collar Size: The only clothing he wears is a Thundershirt or sweaters. Clothing size depends on the item. Generally he needs stuff that is made for long backed dogs otherwise it's a muscle sweater on him. ;) His neck size is 11.5".
Favourite Treat: Same as above!
Favourite Toy: His absolute favorite are the Dr. Noys toys. Cuz (or any of the toys in that line), Nylabone, Egg Babies (mainly just the eggs or balls!). If you buy soft toys please do not buy anything that has feather or anything that can be "plucked".
Treats they cannot have: Same as above!
Toys they won't use: Latex or really hard toys.
Anything else!: Brawt can not have poultry, peanut butter, dairy or anything with Rosemary, Sweet Fennel, Hyssop and Sage oil (food, on something, etc).

I try to stay grain free with all three, but they can have stuff with grains as long as it's of decent quality and made in North America. Also, please do not feel like you have to buy for all three. They all share when possible as long as it's size appropriate.

Just a request...

If you put an estimate on size for clothing/collars please be sure to update with correct size so that if your SS buys something it will fit!

Thank You :D

Forgot colors :lol-sign: I love him in bright blue (I just ordered him this one in blue and he has another in a similar color), any shade of green, and red. He'll eat anything but especially likes soft, meaty treats or bigger meaty things (bully sticks, tracheas, etc)

My favorite colors are fuschia, bright purple, bright blue... anything obnoxiously bright really lol other than yellow, not really a yellow fan.

I think those 2 questions were for the people. Like, if somebody wanted to send the owner a present. Therefore, I LOLed at the "no blue buffalo" :lol-sign:

Ooooooh. I see. :eek:

My favorite color is dark purple, more blue-y than pink. I don't have any favorite food, but I'm allergic to bananas and generally don't like coconut. Adore hazelnut + chocolate.
