…for those of us who prefer to spend December 31st at home with our best friend ever!
Grab a handful of hot dog pieces or tuna treats. Show them to your pet and run down the hall. When your pet gets to you, “Hooray!” drop a piece on the floor and run to another room. Repeat until you’re out of breath.
Start howling. If your dog joins you, see who can howl louder. Don’t worry. It’s New Year’s Eve. Your neighbors won’t mind. ; )
Get about 10 wadded sticky notes for your cat, or 10 tennis balls for your dog. Throw them all up in the air and bat them around the room until your both exhausted.
Say “Ready, Set, Go!!” Toss a piece of hot dog or a tuna treat down the hall and race your pet to see who gets there first.
Hold a hula hoop upright on the ground in front of your pet. Toss a treat on the side opposite your pet and let her walk through the hoop to get it. Repeat, raising the hoop an inch every 3rd time she passes through. Note: This also works with a broom stick on a stack of books. Start with one book on each side.
Lay down on the sofa together and see who can sleep the longest.
At midnight make sure to thank your pet for the joy she’s brought you all year long. It’s way safer than driving drunk.
