Meet Kahlua

Kahlua! Dark, rich, irresistible, makes you do crazy things if you have too much. Kahlua. Great on ice cream. Made with coffee beans, sweet and satisfying. Well, there ya go! Just a few words to describe me. And all this time I bet you thought I was talking about Kahlua the drink! Well, I was. But a lot of those terms describe me too! I am the only Kahlua you need in your life though! I am about 40 pounds of bulldog perfection! I consider myself amazing in every way. I walk well on a leash, I have a great appetite and I love all dogs. I met a cat recently and other than her wacking me across the face when I got too close to her, I liked her too. 

I'm about 4 years old and have been a mom most of those years. As you may know, being a stay-at-home mom is a very hard job. But my babies are all out of the house and have their own families now.... and I'm now part of rescue! It's finally my time to be my own WOMAN! I'm ready to feel the wind in my face and have someone feed me ice cream.

Watch my journey thru rescue and watch me be adopted by an amazing family that has always wanted a Kahlua just like me!
How Dogs See
Christmas Day

Us humans understand exactly what’s going on at Christmas, but dogs don’t have a clue. It’s a time when their owners put new things up around the home, return home with shopping bags regularly and there’s always a lot of food in the house.

We don’t often consider what Christmas day must be like for dogs. For some dogs, it can even be a little bit stressful. Here’s Christmas Day from a dog’s perspective.

  • There’s lots of things wrapped in paper I desperately want to destroy/chew/pull apart. Dogs see presents and instinctively want to get their paws on them. Remember to keep them well out of reach until Christmas day!
  • Why are my humans eating so much food and not giving it to me? We consume a lot of food on Christmas day, and our poor doggies have to sit there watching us. Don’t give your dog Christmas food as it can be dangerous, give them some dog treats instead.
  • I usually get lots of attention but today my owner seems distracted. Dogs don’t get much attention on Christmas day because their owners are busy preparing Christmas dinner, eating and opening presents. Make sure your dog still gets a decent walk on Christmas day.
  • I am getting a bit bored because the focus is not on me. Dogs can easily get bored on Christmas day because they are often ignored in favor of opening presents and enjoying the festivities. Remember to give your dog something to do on Christmas day to keep occupied.
  • What is that amazing smell coming from the food room? It smells like heaven. Just like us, dogs can smell the mouth watering aromas coming from the kitchen. They know that lots of food will soon appear. Make sure they don’t steal any food on the sly.
  • Why am I getting so many treats and new toys? Have I been really well behaved today? Lots of owners don’t want to leave their dogs out when it comes to Christmas presents. Many dogs get spoiled on Christmas Day too, but they have no idea why.
  • All these flashing lights are making me feel dizzy. Festive lighting can be a bit much for some dogs, who get overwhelmed by flashing lights.
  • My owner is acting strange, what is that liquid they have been drinking all day? Dogs also don’t understand what being drunk is, and a lot of people get a bit tipsy on Christmas day. This can confuse dogs who wonder why their owner is acting so strangely.
  • I have never seen so many delicious crumbs on the floor. Some dogs can act like vacuum cleaners, eating up all the crumbs that drop on the floor, and there’s likely to be lots on Christmas day.
  • I can smell treats on that tree. Why can’t I have them now? Many owners will actually wrap up presents specifically for their dog and put them on or under the tree. Your dog might be able to smell them and wonder why they can’t have them, or try and find a way to get to them.
  • Why are there more people in my territory than normal? We often have lots of family members round on Christmas day. For some dogs, this is fine, but for others it can be a bit too hectic and overbearing.
  • What is that sticky stuff holding those paper things together? It’s terrifying, I want to stay away from it. Everyone knows for some reason, dogs absolutely hate wrapping tape. The tape on presents may freak them out a little on Christmas day. You might find your dog hiding in a corner while presents are being opened."

Safety First…

Nothing can spoil holiday cheer like an emergency visit to a veterinary clinic. These tips can help prevent a holiday disaster with your pets.
Keep people food out of the reach of your pet, and ask your guests to do the same. 
Make sure your pet doesn't have any access to treats, especially those containing chocolate, xylitol, grapes/raisins, onions or other toxic foods. 
Don't leave your pet alone in the room with lit candles, a decorated tree or potpourri. 
Keep holiday plants (especially holly, mistletoe and lilies) out of reach of pets. 
Provide a safe place for your pet to escape the excitement (such as a kennel, crate), if you’re entertaining guests. If your pet is excitable or scared, consider putting your pet in another room with some toys and a comfortable bed.
