That is REALLY cool.Originally Posted by kpickell
I failed to mention the best gift my dogs got for Christmas was getting some new playmates for a few days. On Christmas Eve the shelter tried something called "Operation Empty Shelter" and had volunteers take home some of the shelter dogs home for a few days so that they wouldn't have to spend Christmas in a kennel. (And we did succeed in getting the shelter empty except for a few dogs who were sick and had to stay behind). But my own dogs were thrilled because that meant they got a new playmate for Christmas. I took home two dogs Libby and Nate. Libby preferred the company of Starbucks and Perry who are both calmer, while Nate preferred the company of Skip and Mikey my two friendly nutcases. Then when I brought Libby and Nate back to the shelter I brought another dog home for just a few hours--Noel, who everyone is convinced must be Skip's sister because they have the same body type and build (which Skip is a very unique looking dog) and sure enough Skip and Noel hit it off wonderfully and after just an hour and a half at my house they were both exhausted. So that was my dog's favorite present out of all the stuff they got, just getting to make some new friends.
