    I finally have everything! I have 3 dogs to buy for, so I wanted to find a few things for each dog :) I will wrap it and pack it tonight, then post tomorrow. I just hope its there in time for Christmas.

    I'm being a bit held up with shipping, but I will still get it shipped before the final date! Sorry to my SS for having to wait :( Everything is purchased and wrapped and Sierra is VERY tempted to rip it open ;)

    Mine has been posted! Cost nearly as much as the swap itself to post :( but, I hope my person likes everything! I didn't keep it secret inside, as I think mine must be the only one coming from Scotland, it would be pretty obvious :p I also used tartan like paper!

    Now I am looking forward to one arriving for us. The dogs were most upset that there were toys and treats going in a box for some other doggies. I was however, quite tempted to package Ceitidh up in a box and send her along too...she's having a naughty few days :p

    Ooh you are so lucky! I know mine is travelling a long way, but we keep checking the mail as soon as it arrives for ours. Nothing yet though.

    I'm worried now that I haven't sent enough :( I did spend over the limit, but all the photo threads I see seem to have lots for the person and other pets as well. I only got my person a little thing, and most of the money went on the dogs.

    I feel bad :(

    Last year that is how it was for us thought we could barely even get the minimum. This year we were able to do better for our SS gifts. But no matter what is spent what is imporant is the time, effort, love and thought that goes into doing this. No amount in cash can equal that. So no matter what you SS will love what you sent because it will meet with those 4 requirements. Happy Holidays.

    Don't worry about it. Looking at what I recieved VS what I bought made me nervous too. For one, I didn't go online shopping and even though I have $10 left I haven't been to an actual pet store, mostly just Walmart. So I'm kind of worrying that my stuff will pale in comparison, but it's a Chaz SS. It's not like you are giving the Queen of England a lump of coal- whatever you got will be just fine.

    Haha. I thought the cat treats were awesome. My dogs were all over them. When I say "crate" they fall all over themselves and they both try and get into Duncan's at the same time. :rolleyes:

    The snake toy is easily the best thing ever! Cameron loves it, Duncan loves it. It's perfect. I was bragging about it to my parents before I realized they didn't understand it's fantasticness.

    LMAO! I just discovered those invincibles things maybe a week before Thanksgiving and thought they were AWESOME. Logan would like to inform you that they are, however, NOT invincible. He's destroyed 2 out of 6 squeakers so far, but at least it takes him a while to do so :rofl1:

    Thank you so much Izzy's Valkyrie for the amazing gifts! What a treat. The dogs were so excited lol, absolutely loved the treats and Quinn is wearing her new collar and it looks great. The toys were awesome too - I'd really been wanting a bumi. Thank you so much for all my good stuff too! I am such a girl lol, love anything that smells good. Have a very merry Christmas!

    - Charlotte, Quinn, and Dally
