Want a Puppy For Christmas? – Screamin’ Scott
Growing up, it was always on my Christmas wish list for a new puppy. I got a Hot-Wheels track instead. I already had a mini Collie Sheltie. The dog was amazing and helped me get threw my childhood and would eat almost anything I hated at the dinner table.
Nothing feels better than getting a new puppy. In my later years, all my pets have been rescued. I’m a big supporter of pet adoption. Take your time and do your homework ahead of time, especially if it is a gift for a child. Shelters are overfilled with love right now. Not just puppies but older pets and lots of cats.
The first few days in your home are special and critical for a pet. Your new dog will be confused about where he is and what to expect from you. Your dog may be a bit uneasy at first as he gets to know you. Be patient and understanding while also keeping to the schedule you intend to maintain for feeding, walks, etc.
My two dogs are a handful. Jett is an almost 2-year-old lab. He doesn’t want to give up on his puppy image. So far since adoption, she has eaten 2 lazyboy chairs and loves tearing up everything if left alone for 2 mins. Mookie I took in from a friend and was scheduled to be put to sleep. That was over 5 years ago. Since then Mookie is a social media influencer on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. So this Christmas Holiday if you’re looking to get a dog or cat. Adopt a pet. Trust me, it’s love at first site.
