The dogs have not, I repeat not, been given all of their presents yet because... they're dogs. Their toys will be divvied out during the day. They will look at them and decide if they're going to be 'forever toys' or 'forgettable toys.' Children are the same way, they either love their toys or they don't.

And I've just given the dogs their first toys. Lily is almost in rapture over her green, squeaky inchworm, and Biggie is laying on his orange, squeaky squirrel... that way Lily can't play with it. Ah, the joy of dogs.
