Happy Howlidays, friends! With the hap-happiest time of the year rapidly approaching, we couldn’t help but celebrate the next-level excitement expressed by our pooches when we slip them a latke or stuff their paws in little elf booties. (OK, OK, maybe that’s less excitement and more annoyance, but it sure is cute!) Whatever you celebrate, we can all celebrate a roundup of dogs that are super amped about the holidays.
This puppy present
There is truly nothing better than getting a puppy as a gift.
These Goldens may look less-than-impressed about their reindeer antlers on the outside, but on the inside, we know they’re secretly singing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” We just know it.
This ridiculously enthusiastic snow dog
We’re all dreaming of a White Christmas (whether we get one or not is another story). Watching this dog playing in snow video, it’s clear this guy is in snow heaven.
This happy guy
Maymo doesn’t care about the latest gadget—all he needs to be happy is plastic bottles. 210 of them, to be exact. Weee! (He puts on a Santa hat at :30, FYI.)
How do I reindeer?
“Am I doing it right? Is this how I reindeer?”
These yule dogs
Look at the smiles on 50 percent of these hounds! Between the four of them, they’ve got the main holiday things covered: Reindeer, string lights, angels, and Santa. As you do.
This pug has reached an entirely new level of holiday excitement. One where the only real way to respond is by chewing on a pair of plush snowmen. We’ve been there, we get it.
Maymo’s back, only this time he’s with his pal Penny and they’re destroying, oh, pretty much everything. A Christmas miracle of a video, indeed.
This pile o’ puppies
A pile of puppies under the Christmas tree is all we’ve ever wanted. EVER. We promise we’ve been really, really good this year, Santa.
Leaping for joy
We’re pretty sure dogs actually love snowball fights more than humans do.
This snow burrito
The best way to experience the snow, really, is to burrito-roll yourself into it. Good effort, buddy.
It’s official: Maymo is killin’ the Christmas video game. What a trooper, wearing all those costumes.
The gingerbread man
The chillest (and chilliest) pug there ever was. Where can we get a pair of this gingerbread man shades?
Mrs. Claus and Santa’s little helper, reporting for duty!

We know you pet parents have your own stash of photos and videos of your dogs just loving that holiday life—if not outwardly, at least on the inside. Share them in the comments below!
