Kirby’s Chirsmtas Haul

Hey everyone, so I decided to make a quick video to show everyone what Kirby got for Christmas, so you could see him in action with it. Most of the stuff he got is from Petsmart, but I recently have found that there is some really good quality/pricing dog toys at Winners (Canadian store), so I got a couple things from there as well.

Here is some pictures of them as well.

Oh yes the monkey you see on the top left that is the toy that only made it a few hours ๐Ÿ™‚

The flexi leash is actually for Poe, but I was a bit apprehensive getting it, as these leashes are always pulling, and I have heard are not good for when you are teaching a dog to walk by your side, as the reward when he does walk by your side is a loose leash. Though I like the idea of the flexi leash for letting them explore a bit more, and as Kirby is good on leash I might use that for him.

.

Andย  finally for Savannah’sPawTracks, I wanted to postย  her a picture of our other very aloof but interesting rescuee, 9 year old Rascal.

Drinking some water there Buddy?

Oh yea, tell me guys if you like the videos, I just find it easier to do sometimes then posting pictures and describing the toys. If you think its a good idea I might do some more…sometime ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Lea, I love the videos. I agree that it must be easier especially when you feel a long blog coming on :-). It seems like Kirby really enjoyed all of his gifts and I especially love the little jacket. It looks really durable and cozy warm. I bought Woody his first sweater a couple of days ago and he seems to really like it. We’re experiencing an unusually cold winter here in Northern CA and I thought he could use the extra layers. Poe is really cute too. What kind of dog is he? Looking forward to the coming year and more of Kirby’s (and your) adventures.

    • Awww, thank you so much, that was such a nice comment to read!!!! Really, really was. Oh I bet Woody looks so cute in his little sweater! Some times big dogs need them too! I hope if your at least getting a colder winter than normal it might involve some snow…maybe…perhaps?:) As for Poepoe, he is a jack russell terrier/ pomeranian mix, so if you can imagine he can be quite the handful especially when he was younger, but he’s about 8 years old now so he has calmed down some. He got shaved down a bit but usually he looks kinda like a more cartooned version of a JRT. I am looking forward to Ellie Woody and your adventures to come! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wow, what a haul. I laughed at Kirby’s monkey only lasting a few hours…Buddy used to demolish stuffed toys in no time. I like the flexible leash, we always used one on walks. I guess Buddy would feel some independence but we were still in control. According to Cesar Milan, the act of walking your dog on a regular basis is THE best way to avoid behaviour issues. Kirby looks like a prince though ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Wow, I showed Kirby and his toys to Trompie. Trompie sat on my lap and as soon as the squeecky noise comes up he looks and turns his head to the side to see better. Also Kirby barking at the and kept him watching.

  4. Wow some great toys. Video’s are great but since I’ve had this new router.I can’t see any, when my computer guy comes, he will sort it for me ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a funtastic Saturday xx0xx

    • He sure did and it sure will.It is very nice to meet you Dip and Elliot and I think Kirby will really enjoy your blog, as it helps to have bloggy pals that are the close to your own size, especially if you have a bit of the old little dog syndrome!

  5. Nice haul Kirbster…That coat is so stylish…bet you look great in it…Mom loves the Kong toys too…I have two Kong snakes that are almost 4 years old and still going strong

  6. Those toys are awesome, Kirby! You got a TON of cool stuff. I got a stuffed dog, a bowling set, some bacon treats, and a new dress.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

    PS. Mom and I love the video. Especially when Kirby barks and I start looking for him around the house.

  7. Wow, you got quite the pile of gifts! We got mostly food items which is perfect in my opinion. We don’t play that much with toys. My sister and I both have long flexi leashes and love them but they are definitely not good for training! I am an off road hound so I can do lots of exploring which makes it perfect for me.

    • “Hey Jet! Well like to call him my brotha from another motha…..and fatha XD We aren’t technically related but we act like we sure are cut from the same cloth, and we are good buddies so I guess both:) I had to show you allon camera how exactly each toys hould be used of course!”- Kirby

  8. Cute video! You have some beautiful animals. I feel like I was stingy with Bowser this year. (But he destroys EVERYTHING! Even Kong!) Does Kirby also have jaws of steel?

    • Yes!I mean yea he may be small but for a small dog the toys designed for his size don’t stand a chance! You should try Bowser’s on one of those Kong squeaky’s if you see one, they are real cheap and neither Kirby or Poe (also notorious for destroying toys) can’t seem to break through them. And Bowser looks like a equally spoiled little pup! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thats the good thing about dog’s they aren’t disappointed no matter what you do at Christmas lol .Can’t wait to see more Bowser adventures!

      • Thanks! Brian’s mom did get a Kong squeaky toy for Bowser once. He completely chewed through the fabric outside, but I guess the squeak still remained intact. Maybe we will attempt it again! I don’t always post about Bowser, and when I do, it’s usually when he’s done something to drive me crazy! Here’s a more recent post called “The Dog” that I thought you might enjoy: http://terikarl.wordpress.com/2012/11/17/the-dog/

    • He is a spoiled one! I just couldn’t help myself everytime I took him to Petsmart just to “look around” and so Kirby could meet some other puppies, I found myself finding something else. Plus since both Kirby and Poe really only wantthe toy if the other one has it, they’re really for the both of them XD Have a good holiday as well!

    • “Well I tries, but Rascal usually just ends up looking at me like I’m not the brightest crayon in the box, so no..not really anymore. Instead I prefer to pounce on him when he least expects it!” – Kirby

    • “Oh yes it had already begun”-Kirby
      Actually his favorite FAVORITE time to do it is right in the middle of a movie, in which then I proceed to chase him around the table a few times till he finally gets that I want him to drop it! lol. Hugs right back to you Madi and Mom! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • “Rascal as I have learned within my now many months of living here is quite unlike any cat I ever met before. He does not like catnip, nor cat toys, and maybe a cat treat if he doesn’t have anything better to do. He knows perfectly well where his food is but prefers to meow and meow till the poor sucker in his path gives up and personally carries him over to his food bowl. He doesn’t like being scratched, or held, but he will follow my ma and her neighbours around the neighborhood like a dog if he is bored. Yep that wraps him up pretty much!” Kirby

  9. Oh Kirby, that is a great HAUL dude!! I thoughts I was spoiled…okay, yeah, I gots almost as much, butts I can still be green with the envy!! BOL
    I LOVES the video! I agree that post each pic individually can be a real pain sometimes, so a video can do the job of alot of pics. Plus, we gets to see Kirby in ‘action’!! We terriers are SO funny!
    Glads you and your family had a great Christmas Kirby!
    Oh, BTW, I love the Kong small toys too! I might be like 60lbs (don’t laugh…I’m on a diet..kinda hehehe), butts I like running around squeakin’ toys, and those small Kongs are perfect ‘mouth’ size.

    Kisses,
    Ruby

    • Heehee, nice to meet ya Ruby! Yes I am very very spoiled! I don’t even think I was supposed to be on the nice list this year, but my ma’s on the ins and outs with Santa!Do you have a blog Ruby?

  10. Awww, sweet Kirby you just look and sound so cute. You got lots of fun toys for Christmas. Enjoy them! You all have a Happy New Year. Hugs and nose kisses

  11. Dear Kirby: Our girls Millie and Oceana would love to come and have a play day with you? We think your video is awesome since our reading skills are limited. Look forward to your response. Happy New Year! Hugs Lea & Kirby!

    • That would be so much fun Im sure Kirby would love playing with Oceana (pretty name!) and Millie. It is so sad that everyone I have gotten to know so well live so far away through our blogs, as I wish youall were my neighbours instead! Wouldn’t that be something! You must put up a picture of Millie and Oceana so we can see! xoxo- kirby and Lea

  12. Oh, my! Kirby is ADORABLE!!! I love the harness and that he wants to play with it. They share their toys well…at least in the video ๐Ÿ™‚ Very cute, and thanks for putting it all together. I enjoy the “After Christmas Posts.” BYW, Poppy is going nuts listening to the squeakies in the video. What’s going on?!!!

    the Popster and Nanina

    • HAHA, yea I htought about that, any dogs around someone who watches this video are going to be so confused! Im not sure if he wants to play with it as much as he knows what it is and would like nothing more than to destroy it! (He HATES when I put his harness on him). Thanks for stopping by Poppy or shall I say POPSTER and ma!

  13. Yow Kirby!! Dem iz pawsome toyz n stuff!! You deserbez everyfing you receibed as you are a pawsome little pup!!!!
    OOHH da Rascal iz bery handsum!!! We wuud lub to be fur-endz wif him!
    Me just figurred out we were not connected (VP) to yer blog…so me fixed dat!
    What wuud me Hu’Mum do wifout me???
    Lub Nylablue n Sherri-Ellen.

    • Rascal is very very handsome , so everyone says, but he is very aloof, and independent, he is quite unique, but also very interesting in his ways! Thats why we love him! As for Kirby he is quite the monkey constantly needs to be entertained at this point in life, so hopefully the toys help out when mommy needs a break!…or at least a bath!

      • Me used to be aloof like dat too Kirby! Sometimez it iz da pnly way fer us felinez to cope wif bad fingz happenin to us!!!!!
        Kirby you must let your Mumma have some rest n play wif yer toyz like a guud pup should!!!! Maybe you cuud sit with Rascal, MOL!!!! Nylablue.

      • I triez! Sometimes we just look at each other for a long time and then he paws the air at me and I Iets him sniff me, but when I try to sniff him….oh no he doesn’t want that! I just guess its a kitty thing. My ma has told me he has had a rough start but I don’t understand I guess as I have always been a spoilt little pup!

      • Diz iz bery normal fer kittehz who hab had a rough start in Life….maybe just sit near Rascal (not too close) n let him come to you…..you are a guud pup to care about Rascal!!! xo

      • Ok Nyla that is a good idear! I will do that next time I see him! Maybe my mommy will have to help teach me how to sit and wait, I will let you knows how it goes!:) -Kirby

      • Me doezn’t like when dogz come right at me either. Me purrfurz a doggie sit nice n quiet n let me come up to da doggie n chat. It just workz better that way… ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Me knowz it is hard to sit when you iz a bouncy happy pup; so don’t get down on yerself; diz will take time n some practice…me knowz you can do it tho’ ’cause you haz a heart of gold Kirby!!! Lub Nylablue xo.
