Vintage Living With Dogs and Cats
New home. No wonder nothing new was posted in urban hounds. Might I suggest placing a post in urbanhounds saying in a single sentence that you've transferred?
Hi, and so sorry we've been slow in coming over to visit the new blog. It's now on our official list!Toodle pip!Bertie (and Gail).
Love the new blog - name is very cute! Ruby
Yes, I've moved my pointers as well!I think this infographic has some good info, but feel it is a little too encouraging about getting a pet for Christmas. It's always better to wait until the busy holiday season is over when you can focus just on the dog!
I like this info graphic. Pets for the holidays can be a bad idea but for some the right choice. This is a thoughtful way to be realistic without totally saying don't get a dog. After all many dogs would love to have a forever home for Christmas.
This absolutely terrific! I wish there was a TV commercial with widespread distribution to stations around the world conveying the same truly important message. Far too many fail to properly stop and think what it really means (and the time, work and cost involved) to bring a pet into their homes. ♥ Jessica
It's a great infographic. Mummy once got a kitten for christmas, but her family are cat people and the timing was a coincidence more than anything else
When I was a child we got our very first dog for Christmas. But my mom was was a stay at home mom and she became more her dog than ours. When my children were young we had better luck with cats. I was a single working mom and dogs did not work for us until the kids got older.Bailey, Hazel, Greta & Mom
Fantastic, I have never had a pet for Christmas. We have had disasters over here so have missed days of blogging, will put your new link up when we post in the next day or two :) xxooxxxMollie and Alfie
I think Christmas is stressful enough without inflicting it all on a new dog or puppy. they need to come into the family when it is quiet and relaxed.Lynne x
You did it!!! Congratulations!!
It depends on the family. Some have longer Christmas breaks it might not be a bad idea to use that time to help family and dog adapt. We've agreed our next dog will be a spring or summer adoption, but not everyone has a crazy fall/winter holiday schedule like we do. Some actually have a pretty tame holiday season and might find a pet fills the void of not having family to celebrate with during this time.
Those are very good tips for people that are thinking about a Christmas pal to come and live with them. My family brought me home December 15th and that was 10 years ago. They answered all the questions right I think.Loveys Sasha
Great infographic. No doggy for Xmas here ever. Have a wonderful Wednesday.Best wishes Molly
