Santa Dog: The First Sleigh Ride is the Perfect X-Mas Gift Bundle for Your Kids and 4-Legged Loved One + It's a New Magical Holiday Tradition to Start with Your Family (Review)

The holidays are all about being with the ones you love, as well as sharing traditions with your family, year after year.  Dec. 1st for most families mark the arrival of an elf friend to watch over your kids and make sure they are behaving, or maybe a Santa Cam added to the tree (which we started this year with the girls), or maybe you skip all that and just do the advent calendars.  Whatever your family does to get into the holiday spirit is what makes the holidays special for you. But, what about your pets?  They are also looking forward to Santa's arrival, and hoping he fills their stockings with treats and new toys.  If only there was a book/plush set that was made for your pets and kids to enjoy together.  I know, I know, many dog owners share about how their dogs are not on good terms with the elves who come to visit, and sometimes, just sometimes they sneak in the night and catch the elf and turn them into new dog chew toys.  This happened to a friend of mine last week and the kids were devastated when they woke to woke Candy Cane the elf was missing. The mom frantically looked high and low for an elf to replace the chewed up one, so that it could return the next morning and put her kids' mind at ease.  Ahh, the stress of those crazy elves.  I am thankful my girls aren't into the elves and I don't have to remember each night to move them.

My girls, though, are all about the new Santa Dog: The First Sleigh Ride book and plush set we received earlier this week. 

It has been a rough week and half in our house, as we lost our older dog to heart failure last Thursday, on the way to the vet.  The girls watched their first beloved pet pass away, and have been grieving ever since, along with our other rescue dog, Milly, who is missing her best friend.  So, this book came at a good time, as it helped my girls and their remaining forever furry friend share snuggle time while reading this cute holiday story about a dog and boy as they learn the true meaning of the true meaning of Christmas, and the special bond between a child and their furry four-legged friend.  Even though my girls miss Lily, I heard them talking this afternoon how this story, which they completed today after spreading out the 58 pages over the past few days, made them think of Lily and how when my husband and I rescued her back in Dec. 2008 that she found us, and was meant for us.  I had finished my cancer treatment in May and was hoping to find a friend for Abby, my beloved Papillon mix which I adopted as a baby right before I started treatment and she was by my side throughout the treatment (sadly she passed away four years later due to complications with seizures she developed and continued to have).  We drove to a shelter right outside of NY and were hoping to rescue a Maltese I had saw on the rescue league's website. But, when we got there, that dog had been adopted.  We walked through and checked out all the other dogs, but none caught our eye.  Thinking it wasn't our time for another dog, we started to walk out of the kennel, only to see a little black dog scurry over towards my husband's side as we were about to leave.  She left out the cutest littlest "arf" and our hearts melted.  And, as they say the rest is history. :-)

Lily had been not only my beloved Abby's forever friend during her time on this Earth, but she filled my husband and my hearts from the moment we held her.  And, then when my girls came along, she found space in her heart to love them just as much, and gave my girls the gift of unconditional love, only a furry companion can.  She never expected anything in return...well maybe a few treats and snuggles...and was also ready to cover you with her kisses. She could make bad days turn to great just by snuggling up next to you and licking your hand gently.  And, her little bark, which she has right up until the end, melted your heart each and every time she left out an "arf". 

As my girls and I sat with Milly these past few days to read Santa Dog: The first Sleigh Ride, we couldn't help but be reminded about the true meaning of Christmas. And, this is the time of year family's consider adding a furry friend to the family. Before you make this life-long commitment to them, make sure you are ready to give them your whole heart, and know one day that they will take a piece of it with them when you go to Heaven.

If you are looking for a unique holiday tradition to share with you kids and four-legged friend, as they like to be included in the holidays, too, why not consider picking up this cute book and plush set.  What is so neat about this book, not just the story that your kids will love reading, but you also get a cute Santa Dog plush for the kids and a squeaky Santa Dog toy for your furry friend. My girls were so happy to share this special plush Santa Dog with Milly , and she was happy to receive the gift...come on, what dog can resist a new chewy/plush toy to throw around and play with.
