A Puppy for Christmas?

The decision to get Coco took a lot of thought and planning for us.  However, for many, especially around the holidays, it seems to be an easy decision.  Children (and some parents) fantasize about a cute little puppy under the tree.

But a puppy for Christmas isn't always a good idea.  After the holiday high, shelters are over-run with unwanted puppies that weren't the best of ideas.  

Our friends at The Uncommon Dog have put together this infograph to help parents decide if getting a puppy for Christmas is a good idea.  Since pet overpopulation is such a concern in many communities, making a decision like this one is critical!

    1. Couldn't agree more! So many people don't think about that fact first.
