Christmas Presents Not to Give

     Hi everyone. I thought I'd take some time out this morning to update my blog. So, hmm, what is this post to be about? Actually, I want to write about something dear to my heart and something I feel very strongly about. I have had first hand experience of this topic, having worked with rescue and have had my heart crushed many a time. The subject is...pets as Christmas gifts.      

     Christmas is absolutely the wrong time to get a puppy/dog. So many puppies/dogs end up in rescue each new year through no fault of their own, but due to the fact that the owner didn't think it through. Christmas is way too exciting for puppies. Lots of paper and things to shred or crunch on, too much rich food and potentially dangerous foods easily available, and in the excitement of it all, no-one paying any attention to pup's basic needs. Left to their own devices they can get into trouble in a heartbeat. Puppies are a lot of work from day one. They need set routines for feeding, learning their manners, and toileting etc. 
     So, if you are seriously thinking of getting a puppy for Christmas, why not get everything the puppy needs, collar, leash, food bowls, etc. and then go get the puppy after Christmas, when life has returned to as normal as life gets.
