A puppy for Christmas.
Your small people beg. You wonder if it is a good idea. Do you want to add the chaos of a furry friend to the holidays? Do you want to potty train a puppy in the middle of winter? Can your kiddos take responsibility for having a four-legged one in the house?
All questions you might want to consider before letting Santa put a puppy under the tree.
We opted yes – to all of it and I must tell you it was one of the best decisions we ever made.
The good news – the small people now do all of Shortstop’s care-taking – from feeding to walking to letting him out every day. Not only is he loved, but he has been a great tool for teaching them responsibility. (I took this picture last week before his much-needed haircut 🙂
Merry Christmas, friends. If you decide to bring home a new puppy – I hope you are as happy as we have been.
