I think the animals, rather than christmas, call it DAY OF TEARING WITHOUT PUNISHMENT

Huh, that would explain the pile of chewed up tissues I found in the bathroom this morning. That's something my dog hasn't done in forever. Guess she just wanted to celebrate the day!

Next year I'm just getting my dog a ball of wrapping paper and looking the other way. Merry Christmas old boy.

It looks like the pug in the first video is really confused on that point, like she's thinking "is this...are you sure this is okay? This isn't some sort of trick? I mean, you usually yell at me for this...but...okay, well, if you're alright with it, then..." And then the unwrapping process is hilariously tentative. And then the pose at the end with the one paw on the thing! I love pugs, oh man.

We do this every year with our 4 leggers. The cats, as usual, were completely stoned from their catnip doodads within about 10 minutes. As for the dogs, one happily gnawed away at the rawhide, the other munched up the wrapping paper, ignoring the rawhide.

Aw, I should have given my cats some of their catnip yesterday. Instead I slept late, which delayed their breakfast, and then I told them they were getting fancy Christmas kibbles, which was a lie. I am the worst cat father ever (╯︵╰,)

Yeah in that first one, she takes the paper off, then glances up seemingly to ask, "do I open this too? No? So this is it? Well OK then."

And that other poor dog has to open a present that is a box! A box of something! Something you can't have until we decide to give it to you! "Oh yay."

I am pleased to report that, of the two new Michaels family cats, The Moose slept blissfully through the festivities while Tobi chose to join us and greeted her gift with supreme indifference.

Her main gift was the tree which has offered her endless hours of joy and violence.

I beg to differ with the author - these animals know exactly what is going on. Cute stuff.

The thought occurs that teaching one's pets to unwrap Christmas presents may have, um, deleterious effects on the holiday in future years.

We always gave our family dog a big rawhide chew bone every year on Christmas - and he always got his present first, because once he got it he would proceed to chew the hell out of the thing with a laser-sharp pinpoint focus, and would thus leave the rest of us alone while we unwrapped our own presents. He always seemed to be finished with the thing at about the same time we were finishing up, so we were all done unwrapping and the rawhide was totally destroyed and consumed, so we didn't have to clean that up either.

As for my cat, he never paid much attention to the presents - but would play with the ribbon. I used to rig the bottom branches of the tree with very loud bells so I could tell when he was poking around under there.

If you watch only one video watch Jasper the cat rip into his toy and his owner's fingers when she tries to get it away from him. It had me giggling like a loon.

I had to open a bone for a puppy this year because she got it and she could smell it was something good but was very tired and very confused and so she took a nap on it instead of trying to get at it.

yoga: "the other munched up the wrapping paper, ignoring the rawhide."

Next year's craze: Edible (non-toxic, flavored) wrapping paper for pets.
