Cute Puppies for Christmas

At the risk of sounding like Scrooge, we can only hope the adorable puppies in this video montage did not come from puppy mills

We also hope that the parents in these videos who got their children dogs for Christmas are willing to take the time to teach their kids that a live animal is not a toy and that responsible pet ownership is a life long commitment.

Some shelters refuse to allow adoptions to take place around the holidays and have strict rules about adopting out animals as gifts, especially as gifts for children. 

Of course, there are many benefits for children growing up in a home with pets.  Dogs provide unconditional love and dog ownership can help children learn responsibility and compassion.  Here is an excellent article that gives some step-by-step instructions for teaching children how to care for a dog.

    The worst gift you can get someone is a pet. A pet is something that each individual should choose for themselves. I get so frustrated at people who do this.
