A Dog For Christmas

Christmas Gift Giving: think before you act!

By: N Gilbert

Are you looking to get a new puppy or kitten for your child, friend, or relative as a Christmas gift this year? While it is always nice to receive a pet as a gift, just remember that 9 times out of 10, that pet gets bigger and loses that typical "baby" cuteness. Kids love puppies, but when the puppy gets older, the kids end up overlooking the now grown up dog. That eventually leads to the dog and or cat being tossed aside and then put in a shelter due to the owner not wanting it anymore. Now, not all kids and parents feel this way. Some dogs and cats become part of the family and end up growing old along with the kids, and are able to enjoy their lives with their family. Please read the following information from our friends at PetFinder regarding giving pets as gifts for Christmas.
