Of all the dogs we’ve had, I think Luke enjoys Christmas the most of any of them. I don’t think it would matter what I wrapped up in his gift bag, he’d be excited about it.
After all, he was just as excited to help the Dadz and I open our gifts too. It makes me happy to see him enjoying himself so much, and to be so easily pleased. After all, Luke isn’t always such an easy dog. But when it comes to Christmas? I think his joy in opening his gifts is contagious. It was not a quick prospect, as you’ll see in the video below, and we had to help him a little bit!
He brought big smiles to our faces as well, and that made our Christmas extra special.

So sweet! I love that gambler opens prezzies, the girls not so much.
Luke is our first dog that has really been into it!
We hope you have a wonderful New Year – full with love, peace, and happiness. Giving is truly the gift that keeps on giving for the giver! We love to see Luke so happy.
Thank you! So do we. ♥

There’s nothing quite like the joy a dog. Happy New Year!
It’s so true! Happy New Year to you as well!
Luke does seem so happy about gifts. I’d be laughing and smiling the whole time too. His happiness is indeed contagious!
If you don’t have kids, having dogs is the next best thing to making Christmas morning magical! 🙂

Putting the presents in a bag was a pawsome idea! My pack would rather I just open everything for them…I’m going to try the bag thing next year(with maybe a few loose treats in it) and see what happens!
Thanks for the idea!
I’m so happy you’re going to try it! At first I didn’t wrap the gifts (and you could see I didn’t wrap all of them), and just put them in the bag. Later I realized that Luke really liked unwrapping them too, so I started doing that. But just doing the bag is fun for them. Adding the treats is a perfect idea too.

That is so sweet! We don’t wrap the boys’ gifts because they would want to unwrap ALL the gifts. Ho Ho Ho!
Yes, that is exactly what happens!! LOL

Adorable! Ruby has never really caught on with the whole opening gifts thing! Wishing you a very happy 2019!
And the same to you!!
Awww, that video is adorable. I laughed at Squirrel.
I linked this post to Awww Mondays.
Have a woof woof day and a very happy and healthy New Year, Luke. My best to your peeps. ♥
Thank you!! Happy New Year from all of us!

That was sure a wonderfully good time Luke and we love seeing all the happy! Happy New Year from all of us!
How nice that he enjoys Christmas so much. We are not really into the presents. I love to look at the tree and hang out with it the weeks we have it.
We stopped having big trees when we got the golden retrievers, because they were such ornament stealers, and Moses especially couldn’t be trusted not to eat them. But I think I’d like to try a big real tree again next year and see how Luke does. I think he’d enjoy it.
